Supreme Court Will Review Case About Spider-Man Toy

12 December 2014 2:52 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The U.S. Supreme Court has been caught in Spider-Man's web, agreeing on Friday to review a case concerning royalty payments to the inventor of a Spider-Man toy called the Web Blaster. It was less than three months ago that the high court dodged another Spider-Man battle when the estate of comic book legend Jack Kirby arrived at a settlement agreement with Marvel to resolve rights over the character. But given the chance to weigh in on a different intellectual property dispute involving the famous comic book character, the Supreme Court is all in. This case involves

12 December 2014 9:44 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Spider-Verse may be over, but Peter Parker’s troubles are just beginning. A crime wave rips through New York City. The underworld is still in flux following the Kingpin’s removal from Shadowland. Gangs wage turf wars unchecked on the streets of Manhattan. The gang war is heating up and Spidey is going to do something about it!   Only he’s not alone! Police Captain Yuri Watanabe meters out her own justice both as a member of the NYPD and as the vigilante known as The Wraith! But do she and Spider-Man play by the same rules? How far is she willing to go to keep New York safe?   “Hammerhead; Tombstone; the Circus of Crime; Black Cat and Mr. Negative – they’re all at each other’s throats because there’s no single overlord of crime currently running things in New York,” says Gerry Conway in an interview with Marvel. »

Gerry Conway returns to Spidey for new series Amazing Spider-Man: Spiral

12 December 2014 9:42 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Comics has announced that Peter Parker will be taking on the criminal underworld this March as legendary Spidey writer Gerry Conway returns to the webhead along with blockbuster artist Carlo Barberi for an all-new tale of crime, corruption, and the dark corners of the Marvel Universe in Amazing Spider-Man: Spiral, a five issue series that will get underway in Amazing Spider-Man #16.1. Here’s a look at the cover for the first issue from Art Adams

“Hammerhead; Tombstone; the Circus of Crime; Black Cat and Mr. Negative – they’re all at each other’s throats because there’s no single overlord of crime currently running things in New York,” states Gerry Conway. “Things only escalated, especially after the Goblin King fell out of the scene and Doc Ock is no longer operating as the Superior Spider-Man – keeping a lid on everything.”

Cast of Spider-Man: The Animated Series reunite for War Of The Rocketmen

3 November 2014 12:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fans of the 1990s’ Spider-Man: The Animated Series, rejoice - the stellar voice cast are teaming up for new show War Of The Rocketmen…

For children of the 1990s, and presumably those who parented children in the 1990s, and anyone who just loves a good superhero animation, Spider-Man: The Animated Series is swathed in good will and nostalgia.

The show, which serialised Spidey’s legacy in 30-minute chunks, was undeniably excellent. We recall a particularly brilliant arc about Morbius The Vampire.

The cast reunited for a panel at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo over the weekend to discuss the show’s twentieth anniversary, and announce their new project.

"You are the current avatar of this Marvel deity. This is our Iliad. This is our Odyssey," recalled Spidey-voicing actor Christopher Daniel Barnes, speaking of the responsibility of the role. "It touches something universal in us. When you get the chance to »

'Spider-Man: The Animated Series' Cast Reunites and Reveals New Project

1 November 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Wall crawlers, it's time to talk about Spider-Man: The Animated Series. Producer and head writer John Semper Jr. gathered up his cast for a reunion panel Saturday for a discussion 20 years in the making. He's previously avoided talking about the series, but said he'll dedicate the next year to honoring its memory. He grew up on half-hour dramas, which told serious stories in under 30 minutes, and took that model to Spider-Man. "I wanted there to be a real, serious underpinning to the show," Semper told the crowd at Comikaze Expo in downtown Los Angeles.  But here's the big news: Semper revealed

Spider-Man fans, Marvel's next Summer 2015 teaser is for you

30 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Marvel has put out another one of its mysterious Summer 2015 teaser posters, and it's a doozy for Spider-Man fans. Illustrated by Adam Kubert, the teaser is titled Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows and despite being a simple image, it's absolutely loaded with callouts to some of the most controversial moments in Spidey history. There are few sore spots in Marvel Comics canon like the Spider-Marriage. Peter Parker married Mary Jane Watson way back in the landmark 1987 comic Amazing Spider-Man Annual #21, in a story called "The Wedding!" by David Michelinie and John Romita, Sr. Unlike a lot of comic book story decisions, »

Review: 'Arrow' - 'Corto Maltese'

22 October 2014 6:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of tonight's "Arrow" coming up just as soon as I don't know how to vacation like a normal person... Sister show "The Flash" is the shiny new thing understandably getting all the attention, but "Arrow" has had a fine start to its third season. I didn't write about last week's episode, but it did a good job dealing with the emotional repercussions of Sara's murder, while "Corto Maltese" dealt nicely with the Malcolm/Thea relationship(*) and the way it in turn has altered Oliver and Thea's relationship. I don't much buy Diggle's rationale for Oliver not telling her the whole truth, but in general I have a much more anti-secrecy philosophy than the shared "Arrow"/"Flash" creative team, and Thea as secret ninja is a much better direction for her than Thea as underage club owner. (*) I particularly appreciated the tabling of the Hong Kong flashbacks in »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Matt Taylor and Sam Gilbey talk Legend of the Yokai artwork

21 October 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month we brought you some of the Legend of the Yokai artwork completed by artists from around the world to coincide with the release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (read our review here). Flickering Myth were lucky enough to sit down with artists Matt Taylor and Sam Gilbey to talk about their artwork…

Matt Taylor

FM:For the benefit of our readers could you tell me a bit about your work previous to Legend of the Yokai?

Mt: I’ve been illustrating for 12 years now. I guess at the moment I’m better known for doing a lot of work through Mondo, illustrated film posters, book covers, that’s my stock in trade. I did the John LeCarre novels in the Us, which have been reused over here as well and that’s probably the highest profile thing I’ve done recently or the thing that people might actually know me for. »

David Hayter Talks His Debut 'Wolves,' the 'Watchmen' Ending, Directing 'Black Widow' and More

16 October 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

No one can question David Hayter's geek credentials. Not only is he the one, true voice of Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid game series, but he also voiced Captain America in the '90s Spider-Man TV show and played the titular hero in The Guyver: Dark Hero. Hayter's not just an actor in geek-friendly properties, though. He was writing superhero movies before superhero movies were the big business they are today. Hayter's very first produced screenplay was for X-Men, which led to X-Men 2 and Watchmen. And as he revealed in our below interview, he was even attached to direct his adaptations of Watchmen and Black Widow, though neither of those projects panned out. Instead his directorial debut ended up being Wolves, starring Lucas Till as a freshly...

Turtle acceptance and suspension of disbelief

16 October 2014 12:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Have modern movies increased our ability to accept outlandish heroes like the Ninja Turtles? Yes, and it's a good thing, James writes...

There's a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie out. It's a franchise reboot, bringing the iconic brand back to the big-screen in a fresh live-action feature. You're probably familiar with Tmnt having consumed the Turtletastic mythos in some format - comics, cartoons, older movies, videogames, action figures, Lego and/or Vanilla Ice music videos.

Don't worry if you're not clued up on this cowabunga business, though, because I'm going to break it down and run over the basics on which this mighty multimedia property is built. Here's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a nutshell - or rather, in a turtle shell - as conceived by comics creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird way back in 1984.

The basic story - or at least, the high concept - goes like »

10 Unlikely Halloween Costumes Based On Recent Movies

6 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

You can tell how boring a movie year is by the state of new Halloween costume ideas each fall. At least in terms of memorable characters. When I walk into one of those seasonal pop-up shops and see the same superheroes year after year joined still, a decade after, by Napoleon Dynamite-style “nerd” package costumes, I worry that there isn’t enough fresh and popular movie iconography being entered into the history books of late. What is the 2014 film zeitgeist but more Spider-Man, Captain America, X-Men, Transformers and Hunger Games? New costumes are repeats of old, like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (and even my old unlikely X-Men meet Forrest Gump and Smurfette ideas), or based on already familiar icons, like Lego people. Frozen is new but familiar. Same with most of the characters in Guardians of the Galaxy, to a degree. If you want to go against the grain of the mainstream and easily recognized »

Marvelous DA7E 65: Strange, Spider-Verse, S.H.I.E.L.D. and 'Gotham'

1 October 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome To Issue 65!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie/TV news, rumors, and speculation. 

This Week: I saw all of Disney Xd's Spider-Verse, I watched both Gotham and S.H.I.E.L.D., someone's maybe engaged in Detroit and Ethan Hawke gets Strange.


That’s what this all is based on, right?

As some of you might know, I’m a Spider-Man fan and over at Marvel we’re leading up to a Spider-Man comics event called Spider-Verse. Put simply, every Spider-Man across the multi-verse is actually connected to a spider-totem and web of life that makes them the target of an ancient race of...you know, comics are complex.

The cool thing about it is that they’re running a series called “Edge of the Spider-Verse” where we get to spend »

Marc Alan Fishman: The New Breed of Con Goer

27 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This past week, you’ve likely seen it: Denise Dorman, wife of “Famed Comic Book/Sci-Fi/Fantasy illustrator Dave Dorman,” decided to write an op-ed concerning the decline of sales she and her husband have been privy to over the last years. She has since posted a second response to make her points more clear.

Denise’s original piece began: “Privately, famed comic book industry personalities everywhere are discussing with each other whether to stop exhibiting at comic book conventions. There’s a fine line between being accessible to and pleasing the fans vs. losing money at these conventions.”

Unshaven Comics has been independently producing comic books and attending comic conventions regularly for only seven years or so. In no way, shape, or form do we come close to the level of fame and success her husband has enjoyed. But in the time that we have been active, I have »

Movies Help Make Lego the World’s Largest Toymaker

4 September 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Licenses to “Star Wars,” “The Simpsons,” DC and Marvel’s superheroes, and its own films like “The Lego Movie” have helped make Lego the world’s largest toy company when it comes to revenue and profits, beating Mattel and Hasbro.

At least that’s for the first six months of the year.

Lego attributed much of this year’s success so far to “The Lego Movie,” which helped boost sales by 11% during the first six months of the year, the company said.

The Lego Movie,” which was produced for $60 million, went on to earn more than $468 million worldwide, and was backed by 17 playsets, minifigures, a videogame, theme park attraction, and slew of branded merchandise. The film is also available on homevideo platforms.
