From the Twitch Live Stage at New York Comic Con 2017, IMDb LIVE host Kevin Smith talks to Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada about the development of the Marvel franchise, his history at Comic Con and more.

When the United States is threatened by psychotic Confederate Arliss Loveless, President Ulysses Grant teams the duo up to bring him to justice. On a hazard-packed train journey from Washington D.C. to Utah, West and Gordon must combine their skills to best Loveless and his diabolical machines. Written by

After post production of the film, Warner Bros. had already given up on the film, considering it the "black sheep of the family". The film / concept, being so bad that nobody on the staff in the Quality Control Department wanted to work on it. Begrudgingly, they did. See more »

I never saw the original TV show, so I can't compare, and I'm willing to concede a comic-Western-meets-James Bond-type show could work, but I know this much; this movie doesn't work. The story drags on too long, the so-called gags are lame, some fine comedic actors are left twisting in the wind(only Branagh held my interest for awhile, and I even got tired of him), and it's hard to believe Barry Sonnenfeld, who made the ADDAMS FAMILY movies and MEN IN BLACK so entertaining(not to mention GET SHORTY) could make a stinker like this. Some nice photography by Michael Ballhaus, but that's it.
