• Amazing Spider-man Vs. Superior Spider-man! • The Spider-Army doesn’t have time for this squabbling as the Inheritors tighten their noose. Amazing Spider-man #11 Written by Dan Slott Pencils & Cover by Olivier Coipel • Miles Morales And Ultimate Spider-man (from the Ultimate Spider-man cartoon) Team Up! • Gwen Stacy Spider-woman goes to a universe to recruit a Peter Parker who never got over her death! Spider-verse Team-up #2 Written by Christos Gage & Gerry Conway Pencils by Dave Williams & Paul Smith Cover by Dave Williams Well, this should be fun! We never got to see a physical confrontation between Peter and Otto due to the fact that they were sharing the same body/mind during the controversial Superior Spider-Man series, so seeing them battle it out here before being forced to put their differences aside to take on Morlun should be very interesting. Who will ultimately be...Superior? We'll know soon! »

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.

While studios tout records, market share and No. 1 status based on box office grosses, we thought it’d be a good idea to look at some of this year’s summer films (tentpoles and not) to see how their budgets stacked up against their worldwide grosses to date. These budget numbers do not include domestic/international marketing and distribution costs, nor do they take into account the splits with exhibitors, but they do give an idea of outlay and income. Bear in mind, that while some of the biggest offshore grosses come from China, the studios are only getting a 25% cut from that territory. Also, some of these pictures will end up doing well in home entertainment and may make a profit over time — as in, a few years.
Here are some of the films we were able to compile from smallest to highest budgets with worldwide grosses (and percentage »

What a summer at the movies! The galaxy got guarded. The future days went past, like some sort of extinct age. The planet of the apes stopped rising and started dawning. Our stars had a fault. And also: Lucy!
Hollywood had a rough season at the box office in summer 2014, with overall box-office receipts falling precipitously from last year’s flurry of mega-grossers. Going into this weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy, the highest-grossing film at the summer box-office, has earned about $256 million–which would have made it the fifth highest-grossing movie of summer 2013.

Last night, amidst the butts and the Feminism and the important message from Miley Cyrus, the VMAs bestowed its latest award for Best Direction to Daniels, aka Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, for helming the Lil Jon and DJ Snake music video for “Turn Down For What.” You didn’t miss that part of the show, because this category isn’t millennial-friendly enough for the telecast (nor was the one given to Oscar-nominated art director Anastasia Masaro), but somewhere in the night there were some Moonman statues given to a duo that might just be the franchise film directors of the future. In winning the award, Kwan and Scheinert follow in the footsteps of such notable directors as David Fincher (The Social Network), Spike Jonze (Her), Adam Yauch (Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That!), Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo), Tarsem Singh (Mirror Mirror), Jake Scott (Welcome to the Rileys), Samuel Bayer (Nightmare on Elm Street), Steve Barron (the »

During an interview with IGN, Jaimie Foxx revealed that he was approached to play Luke Cage. He also discussed his superhero fandom and where it spawned from. He also talks about why Spider-Man is his favorite superhero.
As for Luke Cage, all he says is that he was approached to play him back in the day but that it didn't work out at the time. I really like the idea of Foxx as Cage. I think he would still be an awesome choice for the role.
Marvel is currently moving forward with Luke Cage as a series on Netflix, but if that series is a hit, I guess there is always a chance the character could find his way to the big screen, he just most likely won't be played by Foxx. The actor has also been wanting to play Spawn for Todd McFarlane for years, and hopefully one day that happens. »

“I’m the guy who asked my parents to get back in line at the Indiana Jones stunt show in Disneyland immediately after seeing it” is the thing I said to Mike Ryan after seeing Marvel Universe Live! at the Barclay’s Center last night. That was the statement I should have lead with when I explained why I wanted to see what everyone seems to describe as “Marvel on Ice without the Ice.”
I am the completest geek for things I love, I saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Coming Out Of Our Shells Tour at the Denver Coliseum. I’m the guy that wants to see all the stage shows at Universal Studios instead of going on the Jurassic Park Ride again. I’m the guy that took theater classes and learned about suspending people for Peter Pan and thinking: “This would be more fun if it were Spider-Man. »
Marvel soared while Adam Sandler floundered. Simon takes a closer look at the winners and losers of 2014's summer blockbuster season...
As another summer blockbuster season comes to an end, here's our annual reflection on what worked, what didn't, and who was left with egg on their face.
It's been a surprisingly strong summer season, in truth. Sure, there've been a few misses here and there, but we've found much to enjoy in many of the season's big releases, both in terms of widescreen spectacle and thought-provoking ideas.
So as the summer of 2014 winds to a close, here's what we took out of it...
Taking its usual place in the 'winners' section of articles like these is Marvel Studios, which opened and closed summer blockbuster movie season this year with considerable style.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier garnered strong reviews, and comfortably outperformed its predecessor at the box office. »

The new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie is such a ridiculous guilty pleasure it will make even non-fans of the animated TV series cheer “Cowabunga.” Many groupies were wary about this film reboot when it was first announced, but all the bad buzz turned out to be bogus. Director Jonathan Liebesman (“Battle: Los Angeles”) and producer Michael Bay have successfully updated the Turtles to 2014. The joke-cracking crime fighters still love pizza, while also listening to Gwen Stefani and watching “Lost.” And they look better than they ever have, thanks to the motion capture technology used to bring them to life.
Film Review: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”
Here are five reasons why “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is one of the best surprises of the summer.

Our weekly round-up of all the latest superhero news and talking points, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Cinematic Universe, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, Batman: Assault on Arkham, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3, Black Panther, Daredevil, Deadpool, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Venom Carnage, Kick-Ass 3 and more….
Well, the big showdown between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America 3 is no more, with Warner Bros. blinking and shifting the release of BvS away from Marvel’s May 6th 2016 date to March 25th 2016 (a wise move, considering it will now face very little in the way of competition). The news was followed by the announcement that Warner Bros. has finally pulled the trigger on a DC Cinematic Universe by setting a further Nine »

As our review has already pointed out, the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is a disaster. Even for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie. Don’t get me wrong, I have a soft spot for the first one, released in 1990. But even though it has a certain goofy charm, it’s not a good movie. That’s a shame for someone like me, who actually enjoyed the cartoon quite a bit and before that grew up on the old, slightly more mature Eastman and Laird comics. This time both the Turtles and their movie are ugly and utterly unlikeable, but the worst part is probably in how ridiculously unoriginal the plot is. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is awfully similar to the story running through the first two Amazing Spider-Man movies, but it makes them look like Nolan’s Dark Knight films by comparison. The Tmnt movie also reminds us of Tim Burton’s Batman, xXx »

I would have loved to have watched an awesome new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie this week, but, unfortunately, that didn't happen. I went into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hoping that it would be better than the disaster I was expecting. The movie could and should have been so much more enjoyable. I don't understand what's so hard about developing a solid story and script for a movie like this. Why can't these supposedly "talented" people get it right? People actually got paid lots of money to make this movie, and the studio threw hundreds of millions of dollars into it, and this is what they deliver to audiences? It makes me sad.
Yes, it had some entertaining, action-packed scenes in the film, and the special effects were fantastic. But what's the point if the story is crap? All they tried to do was give audiences eye candy. The original 1990 movie had terrible special effects, »

On today's episode we dedicate way more time to Megan Fox's than I expected, discussing not only her recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles press conference quote, but her career overall as well. Then we get into female led superhero movies, talk more Guardians of the Galaxy, the weekend box office, play some games and then a little more on top of that. Finally, it's time once again to vote for our next audio commentary. On this episode we mention only five, but I thought of one more after we finished and have added it to the mix, so there are six to choose from. Vote below: poll id="359" If you are on Twitter, we have a Twitter account dedicated to the podcast at @bnlpod. Give us a follow won'tchac I want to remind you that you can call in and leave us your comments, thoughts, questions, etc. directly on our Google Voice account, »

In what might be yet another sign that Marvel should begin to fret that the U.S. Supreme Court could review a massive superhero rights dispute, the respected attorney Tom Goldstein is now co-representing Jack Kirby's family members. Goldstein is perhaps most famous for running the invaluable SCOTUSblog, which on July 21 highlighted Kirby v. Marvel Characters as its "Petition of the Day." The dispute started when the family of comic book legend Kirby sent termination notices to Marvel and its licensees Sony, Fox and Universal over such superhero characters as Spider-Man, X-Men, Captain America, Iron

San Diego — After years of false starts, Daniel Radcliffe finally made it to Comic-Con. The "Harry Potter" star was never able to physically make it to the massive pop culture festival while shooting the iconic film series because their production always conflicted with the convention's July dates. The 25-year-old actor doesn't necessarily have more free time on his hand these days, but he made his inaugural visit to talk about his upcoming fantasy thriller "Horns." Radcliffe took some time to speak to HitFix about his new movie, his first Comic-Con and a "never say never" in the video interview at the top of this post. What was most surprising was Radcliffe's initial revelation that he'd already explored the convention but in costume. "I went around as Spider-Man and took some photos with people," Radcliffe admits. "It was quite fun. It was like that and Halloween are the only time I »
