Sdcc: Idw announces Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four Artist’s Edition

22 July 2016 6:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Idw has announced the upcoming release of Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four Artist’s Edition, which will collect multiple stories from Kirby’s run on Fantastic Four, all captured directly from the original artwork.

“These issues of Fantastic Four represent Jack Kirby operating at the top of his game, which is about as high a compliment as I can pay a comic book,” said noted comics historian and Kirby biographer Mark Evanier. “As a reader, I felt like the fifth member of the Fantastic Four—and that was in the small format with the bad printing. When I get the Idw book, I will probably want to move into it and live there.”

“Kirby’s inventive story-telling set the bar that Marvel has honored for decades,” added David Gabriel, Svp Sales & Marketing, Marvel Comics. “We couldn’t be prouder to see this fantastic work made available in this new prestige »

Fantasia 2016: Rupture is a Solid Sci-Fi Thriller [Review]

18 July 2016 6:10 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Indie writer-director Steven Shainberg has never been one to stick to a single genre, hopping from crime thriller (1998's Hit Me) to kinky dark comedy (2002's criminally under-appreciated Secretary) to biographical drama (2006's Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus). Now, ten years after his last feature, Shainberg tries his hand at science fiction/horror with Rupture, a solid abduction thriller starring Noomi Rapace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Michael Chiklis (Fantastic Four), and Peter Stormare (Fantasia Festival favorite Bad Milo).

Rapace plays single mother Renee Morgan, whose teenaged son is prone to emotional and angry outbursts. As the audience watches them prepare for their day, we notice that, oddly, some of what we’re [Continued ...] »

In the wake of DC Entertainment introducing 'Aquaman' in "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada has confirmed that screen rights to Marvel Comics' "Namor the Sub-Mariner", the first Atlantean comic book anti-hero, are back with Marvel Studios:

"Yes," confirmed Marvel's Kevin Feige about Marvel controlling screen rights to Namor, "but it’s slightly more complicated than that."

"There are older contracts that still involve other parties that means we need to work things out before we move forward on it.

Here's What a Stan Lee Biopic Starring Bryan Cranston Looks Like

5 July 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

How cool would this be? One enterprising fan has made a theatrical one-sheet poster for the fictional biopic movie Stan Lee. And they've cast Heisenberg in the lead role. Yes, this awesome images features everyone's favorite Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston as the one and only Stan 'The Man' Lee, founder of Marvel. Though the movie isn't in-development as far as we know, it might just get a green light after everyone gets a load of this. The epic tagline reads as such.

"The best way to rule the universe is to create it. Bryan Cranston is Stan Lee. April 2017."

Of course, don't get your hopes up. There's definitely no Stan Lee biopic planned for next spring. But it does beg the question, who would release such a movie? Would it be an official Marvel Studios release? Would a rival company tackle the man's legacy? Or would it be an »

Comic Book Reviews: Marvel Round Up

2 July 2016 6:31 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

No DC Comics reviews for me this week as it seems Rebirth is taking a break (unless you need to go pick up those 2nd printings!-and you should!) So I will focus a little more on Marvel. Rumbles in the rumor community are suggesting Another reboot coming Marvel’s way real soon which promises to change the landscape of the Marvel Universe again! I’m guessing it will be the fallout from this terrible Civil War going on. Remember if there’s a book you want to have checked out, let me know and I will review it!

Rogue AI Runs Amok In Thrilling New Trailer For Luke Scott Sci-Fi Morgan

27 June 2016 8:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Any science fiction fan worth their salt will tell you that Ridley Scott, director of such classics as Alien and Blade Runner, is right up there with the most important filmmakers in sci-fi history, expanding the genre in new and perplexing directions.

Imagine our excitement, then, when we heard that Scott’s son Luke is poised to make his own directorial debut later this year with Morgan, a thought-provoking and genuinely creepy sci-fi thriller that involves shady human experiments, scientists playing God and, in true genre fashion, artificial intelligence gone rogue.

In this instance, that title role will be played by Anya Taylor-Joy of The Witch fame. Created in a remote, high-tech lab, Morgan represents the biggest breakthrough in artificial intelligence in years, and is enough to keep Swedish philosopher and author Nick Bostrom up at night. 20th Century Fox is handling distribution while Ridley Scott is attached in a producing role. »

Marvel mystery solved. Stan Lee reveals favorite superhero movie

13 June 2016 2:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

He’s the mind behind some of Marvel’s most beloved characters. He’s created such famed superheroes as Iron Man, the Hulk, Spider-Man, and the Fantastic Four. But with so many of these comic book heroes getting their turn on the big screen, one must wonder which of these Marvel flicks is Stan Lee’s favorite. Now we have an answer. During a recent Q&A on his Facebook page, Lee was asked which film adaptation he liked best. “I think my favorite comic book movie was the first one that was such a hit, the first Spider-Man," Lee said. It’s hard to argue with Lee here. The film, which starred Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst scored 89 percent “Fresh” on RottenTomatoes.com with reviews like Richard Roeper’s, who called it an “energetic romp.” From a financial standpoint it was a huge hit too. The movie made an inflation-adjusted $1.1 billion and spawned two follow ups with Maguire in the title role as well as two more with Andrew Garfield as the webbed wonder. The next round of Spider-Man movies, this time starring Tom Holland as the title character, starting with Spider-Man: Homecoming, is slated for a July 2017 release. »

Superhero Adaptations You May Not Have Heard Of

10 June 2016 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Superheroes are everywhere these days – I don’t need to bring up Box Office Mojo to show you that the most popular movies of the last five years usually feature characters who’ve leapt from the pages of a comic book! Hell, even “Batman V Superman”, a movie which was universally panned by critics, still managed to make close to a billion dollars solely by virtue of having two of the most popular comic book characters in there! That’s insane, and it doesn’t extend to movies – we’ve got numerous TV shows (the CW alone has five shows based on comic books, and that’s just one channel), animated series, videogames, and of course, more weekly comic books than you could ever hope to read while maintaining a healthy adult life. You might be wondering why we suddenly have such an influx of superhero media, and the short answer is, »

The Shady Truth Behind Fantastic Four's Villain

7 June 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There’s a lot of criticism that's been directed towards last year’s Fantastic Four reboot, and one of the top issues on the list was Victor von Doom, a.k.a. Doctor Doom.  While Toby Kebbell’s performance was satisfactory purely from an acting standpoint, this movie’s version of the famous Marvel villain was an even less faithful interpretation than Julian McMahon’s from the previous series. It’s been 10 months since the movie hit theaters, and now Kebbel has revealed an eye-opening truth about his time as the Fantastic Four’s arch-nemesis: it wasn’t even him in costume for most of the time. While speaking with The Daily Beast about his latest movie, Warcraft, Kebbell informed the publication that not only was the Fantastic Four that folks saw in theaters last year was not director Josh »

Wait, Namor Is Back At Marvel? Get The Details, And Get Excited

3 June 2016 7:07 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It almost feels like Marvel won’t rest until all of its key characters are back under the umbrella of Marvel Studios, available for the picking and able to be placed in one of the company’s Phase Four movies, and beyond. While we celebrated the acquisition of Spider-Man, who made his debut in Captain America: Civil War, there are still properties like the X-Men and the Fantastic Four who live at other studios. We thought that was the case of Namor, the Sub-Mariner, but on that front, we might have been wrong. Keep in mind that the rights to the character of Namor have been unclear for several years now. We have been writing for years on the comments of Marvel President Kevin Feige, who has said that the rights to the character were "complicated," and that "older contracts that still involve other parties& »

8 Ways To Fix The X-Men Franchise After Apocalypse

1 June 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you in any way side with the critics, you’re probably feeling a bit let down by the latest X-Men movie. X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t Fantastic 4 nor Green Lantern bad, but when a superhero franchise has reliably been the strongest one out there (sorry Marvel, X-Men is just that bit deeper and more off-the-wall than you), it’s disappointing to see it take such a step backwards.

It’s not critical or audience opinion that matters to the longevity of the X-Men series, however, but the box office, and already X-Men: Apocalypse is shaping up to be a fairly big-hitter. Not Days of Future Past big, but successful enough that another sequel is already in production as we speak.

Still, if 20th Century Fox want to revive the franchise’s reputation and keep bringing audiences back, the sequel to Apocalypse has to be more warmly-received than its 1980s-set predecessor. »

Stan Lee Reveals Why He’s “Damn Mad” About His Raunchy Deadpool Cameo

30 May 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Stan Lee didn’t create Deadpool (that credit belongs to Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza), but the Marvel Comics creator still made one of his famous cameo appearances in the R-Rated movie earlier this year. Inevitably, it ended up also being rather R-Rated, as it consisted of him being the DJ in the strip club that Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) was working in.

Talking at MegaCon this weekend, the man responsible for dreaming up the likes of The Avengers, Fantastic Four and Spider-Man jokingly revealed that the cameo actually made him “mad,” and here’s why:

“I don’t know if I should tell you the truth about that cameo. It will kill all your fun. I was not in the topless dancing place. I did that in a studio and then they put it into the movie, and I’m damn mad about that! I made them promise on the next one, »

Stan Lee Reveals a Surprising Secret About His Deadpool Cameo

30 May 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many believed Stan Lee would claim his Deadpool cameo to be his favorite. The man, after all, gets to play a DJ surrounded by beautiful exotic dancers at a gentlemen's club. But alas, he's chosen Avengers: Age of Ultron as the one cameo he cherishes the most. And now we may know why. Sure, he claimed to love the fact that gets to say his trademark catchphrase "Excelsior!" in Avengers 2. But there may be another reason why he went with that instead of Deadpool. Over the weekend, the man behind Marvel comics finally revealed a little known secret about his time spent on set of the Ryan Reynolds blockbuster.

As it turns out, Stan Lee wasn't surrounded by buxom topless strippers at all. It just appeared that way through the magic of movies. And he's none too happy about it. Stan the Man recently appeared on the Fandemonium Network Youtube channel, »
