Ed Catto: Our Own Worst Enemy

17 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Much has been written lately about the recent Marvel Retailer Summit and the unfortunate public relations debacle that followed. As you may know, Marvel had arranged to speak with and listen to leading comic shop retailers following a difficult downturn in their comic sales. The fireworks really started in the subsequent ICV2 interview when Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Print, Sales and Marketing, David Gabriel, summarized the retailer conversations, and the reasons behinds the sales slump in an awkward, clumsy fashion that ignited a plethora of heated conversations.

And then United Airlines’ corporate blunder dominated the headlines so outraged fans and consumers could focus their anger towards that brand instead.

But as the pundits reviewed Marvel’s missteps, there were a few topics missing from these conversations and analyses. Maybe these issues were just pushed into the background, but they are important puzzle pieces necessary to understanding Geek Culture’s retail landscape. »

"Silver Sable-Black Cat" Movie

13 April 2017 6:32 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

While Warners develops a "Gotham City Sirens" feature, to be directed by David Ayer, comes news that Sony wants to get in on the 'bad girl' superhero action, with plans to greenlight a "Silver Sable-Black Cat" feature, spinning off from Marvel's "Spider-Man":

According to reports, Chris Yost (Thor: The Dark World, Thor: Ragnarok) will write the new screenplay to be produced by Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal.

The 'Black Cat' aka 'Felicia Hardy', was created for Marvel Comics by writer Marv Wolfman and illustrator Keith Pollard, debuting in Marvel's "Amazing Spider-Man" #194 (July 1979), as the daughter of a world-renowned cat burglar.

After suffering a traumatic event as a college freshman, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics and, after deciding to follow in her father's footsteps, adopted her costumed identity as the Black Cat.

Felicia Hardy also appeared in Sony's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" (2014), portrayed by actress Felicity Jones. »

Animation as a Fallback

7 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

How ‘Smurfs,’ ‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘Ghost in the Shell’ and more are keeping their brands alive after live-action disappointments.

As the live-action Hollywood version of Ghost in the Shell looks to lose $60m after audiences ignored it at the box office last weekend, Japanese publisher Kodansha and anime studio Production I.G. have announced a new animated project based on Masamune Shirow’s classic manga with Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki on board as co-directors.

There are no other details, not even clarification on whether the plan is for a new anime series or feature, and this is something that has been teased since before the new movie’s release, but the timing of the greenlight announcement comes across as damage control, reminding fans that Ghost in the Shell will live on as a property more properly once again.

It’s also interesting that this is happening as the animated feature Smurfs: The Lost Village opens in theaters. Sony »

Michael Davis: Not The American Dream

5 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

When I was eight years old, I was racing my new Tonka toy truck up and down the concrete sidewalk on my block. I was doing so by bending over and pushing the truck as fast as I could with both hands.

The truck slipped out of my hand, and my momentum carried me quite a bit before I came to a stop.

I was fortunate my clothing protected most of me. Unfortunately, most of me did not include my face. My head skidded face down. As a result, the sidewalk tore much of the skin off my face.

My mother had just learned to drive and wasn’t very good at it.

I didn’t help I was screaming and crying as was my sister. She was screaming and crying not so much because my face looked like it had been through a meat grinder but because my mother was screaming and crying. »

15 Different Versions of Spider-Man’s Venom

24 March 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Venom is hands down one of the coolest characters in the Spider-Man comics (and movie) if not one of the slicker characters in the entire comic book universe.  But did you know that the origins of Venom are female in nature, not male? Originally, Venom was supposed to be a woman. Back when David Michelinie was first coming up with the concept which he would later flesh out with Todd McFarlane’s art, he wanted Venom to be female villain.  According the Screenrant: The backstory that Michelinie developed was a tragic one: this woman, as it turns out, is pregnant with

Black Cat And Silver Sable Movie Being Written At Sony By Chris Yost

22 March 2017 7:26 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We are months away from Sony's highly anticipated reboot of the Spider-Man franchise when Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters July 7th, 2017. Last week we were all surprised to hear that another character from the Spiderverse, Venom was going to get his own film presumably to be released in October of 2018. Today we yet another development for two more characters from the Spiderverse that are going to get their own film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony is  in development for another film that will feature the female characters Black Cat and Sable. The script is being worked on by Chris Yost, who is no stranger to comic book films as he has just finished working on the upcoming Marvel film Thor: Ragnarok. Apparently this has been in the works for a while now, only being known as a "secret female spin off project". The film will be produced by Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal, »

Spider-Man Spin-Off Silver Sable and Black Cat Is Happening

22 March 2017 6:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Sony Pictures handed out a 2018 release date for their new Venom spin-off that will expand the studio's Spider-Man universe, although it will not be connected to Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The studio has brought on screenwriter Christopher Yost to write the script, building on a previous script that was originally worked on by Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy.

Life Team Embraces Venom Fan Theory, Is It True?

20 March 2017 11:22 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, an eagle-eyed Reddit user noticed that a trailer for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Life, which hits theaters on March 24, recycled a brief shot from Spider-Man 3. This lead other users on Reddit to concoct a theory that Life may actually be a secret prequel to the Venom spin-off. That the alien creature featured in Life is the symbiote that eventually becomes Venom. While this theory is far-fetched, since there are no confirmed ties between Life and the Marvel Comics universe, the team behind Life have taken a surprise stance on this idea. Now the writers and their director refuse to deny this outlandish rumor.

ComicBook.com attended a recent press event where Life writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who also wrote the R-rated superhero blockbuster Deadpool, were asked about this theory. Paul Wernick claimed that "We are tied to Venom!" Rhett Reese pointed out that, while the »

Critical Thinking: Iron Fist and the broad strokes of whitewashing

8 March 2017 2:10 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on Marvel’s Iron Fist and the broad strokes of whitewashing…

Diversity is one of those troubling topics of conversation that always places you on the precipice of wedging your creps firmly in your soft palate. Especially when you’re white, since conventional logic tells me that the only opinion I should have on any topic involving diversity is “Yes, diversity is great”. And of course, it is. Who hates diversity? I mean, other than bigots, racists, religious fundamentalists, and 86.8% of the Trump administration?

I understand the value of diversity. People seeing themselves represented in movies, television, comic books, and literature is important. I’ve laughed at people when they’ve made idiotic complaints online, like the furor over Michael B Jordan playing Johnny Storm in Fox’s legendarily tragic Fantastic Four reboot. Or the deep-fried lunacy over Tilda Swinton being cast as the Ancient One in Doctor Strange. »

Gargoyles: revisiting an underappreciated Disney series

22 January 2017 8:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Baldwin Jan 30, 2017

Disney's Gargoyles was filled to the brim with creativity, mythology and great characterisation...

To get a sense of why Disney series Gargoyles stands as one of the more ambitious animated serials to have come out of the 90s, a good place to start is the episode Avalon Part 2. The second in a three part narrative taken from the show’s elongated second season, it begins with one iteration of the villainous Archmage, voiced with glorious ham by David Warner, asking a doppelganger whether he’s certain he knows what to do. To which the doppelganger replies “I should… I watched you do it.”

Said exchange doesn’t make much sense until the end of the episode, when the lines are repeated to an audience now fully informed, who have just seen two versions of the same character travel between »

Best Comic Book Movies from the 1990s

14 January 2017 1:14 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Believe it or not, there were some truly great 90s comic book movies. For many of us, that particular decade doesn't feel like it was all that long ago, but it is a time that is getting further and further away in the rearview mirror. There is a lot of nostalgia for things made during that period be it toys, games, music and yes, movies. The thing is, not everything holds up as well as we would like it to and the 90s specifically had not yet cracked the code on comic book movies.

Long before Marvel would launch the Marvel Cinematic Universe and lay out a template that virtually every studio in Hollywood is trying to emulate, comic book movies were just something that studios would try. In the 90s it was a completely, seemingly random thing. Sure, some movies were made based on books from the big two, »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan Inexplicably Removed From Sale

4 January 2017 10:19 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Platinum Games’ hack and slash game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan, has been removed from digital sale without so much as a word from publisher Activision. As spotted by NeoGAF users (via VideoGamer), the budget title has disappeared from Steam, the Xbox Games Store and Sony’s PlayStation Store, raising questions as to what’s happened.

Games being removed from digital sale isn’t a rare occurrence – publishers have done so in the past due to the expiration of licenses – but considering the relative newness of Mutants In Manhattan, one can only wonder what’s going on at Activision HQ.

Released back in May last year, Platinum’s Tmnt is just one of a collection of licensed titles developed by the studio, with Transformers Devastation and The Legend of Korra counted among them. With Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel both having disappeared too, it very much looks »
