The Secret to 'Con Man' Breaking Down Boundaries for Digital Content: Love

9 July 2015 8:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For anyone unfamiliar with Comic-Con, know that Hall H is the main stage, where the headliners present. Its official capacity reaches 6,500 people, and some folks wait outside for 24-plus hours for a day's worth of access to insider gossip on blockbuster properties. Read More: Watch: 'Firefly' Duo Alan Tudyk & Nathan Fillion Campaign (Adorably) for New Indie Series So yeah, it was a big deal when the 2015 schedule came out and revealed that on Thursday afternoon, for the first time, Hall H would feature a panel devoted to a web series. Of course, the reason for handing over Hall H to a web series is that said web series is currently one of the most successful crowdfunding stories of all time and was able to fill the stage with nearly 20 members of the cast and crew, who represented a murderer's row of some of television's most popular science fiction shows. »

First Con Man Trailer Unveils Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk’s Web Series

9 July 2015 6:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There couldn’t be a more perfect trailer to debut at San Diego Comic-Con than that of Con Man, a new web series from Firefly shipmates Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk. The two launched a crazy successful Indiegogo campaign earlier this year, which has now manifested ($3.2 million dollars later) in what looks like a truly awesome series. If you aren’t up to speed, here’s the official synopsis. You can also check out the brand new trailer below: Con Man is a lighthearted take on the personalities, luminaries, comic book stores, and characters they have run into during their years in the sci-fi community and convention circuit, while telling the story of a guy learning to love and embrace his fans. Con Man centers around the post-show life of Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk), the pilot and co-star of Spectrum, a sci-fi series which was cancelled before it’s time »

Comics to Read Before You Die #23: Astonishing X-Men Vol 1

In the latest edition of Comics to Read Before You Die, Jessie Robertson looks at Astonishing X-Men Vol 1…

Published 2004

Written by Joss Whedon

Illustrated by John Cassaday

Joss Whedon. That name now carries a certain power, respect and gravitas with it. Once the cult director of prematurely killed fan favorite space western Firefly, and the man who turned the cheesy (albeit very entertaining) Buffy the Vampire Slayer into another cult hit because of its wit, characters, supernatural, babes and dialogue TV blockbuster for the WB, now he’s the colossally successful film director, having the first 2 (of many more) Avengers motion pictures behind him. Did you know he wrote some comics too? This book was his most famous venture in that medium. Let’s set the stage:

After a successful run by Grant Morrison on X-Men, Whedon took over and left much of the same team in tact, including Scott Summers and Emma Frost, »

Halo 5: Guardians – Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris revealed

12 June 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With E3 just around the corner, Microsoft and 343 Studios have really begun rolling out information leading up to their Halo 5: Guardians panel. Halo 5 is easily one of 2015’s most anticipated titles and that anticipation will only grow thanks to the information Game Informer has published.

We’ve known for some time Halo 5 would see the Master Chief going Awol for reasons unknown and tracked by Spartan Jameson Locke, a character introduced in the web series Halo: Nightfall. Game Informer has exclusively revealed that John-117 will not be alone in his mysterious quest, but will be joined by his old Spartan IIs, Blue Team.

This is great news for hardcore Halo fans. Blue Team consists of Fred-104, Linda-058 and Kelly-087, all of whom were introduced in the Halo book Halo: Fall of Reach, released in 2001 around the same time as the very first Halo game. Fall of Reach acted as »

Comic Book Review – The Disciples #1

9 June 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras reviews The Disciples #1…

Dagmar, Rick, and Jules, intrepid private eyes/bounty hunters, have been hired by a high ranking Senator to retrieve his teenage daughter who’s run off to join a mysterious religious cult.

This is no ordinary cult though. In the near future of “The Disciples,” the ultra-wealthy have become true masters of the universe by colonizing moons throughout the solar system. Billionaire industrialist McCauley Richmond is one such colonist: he’s built a new society on Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter, where his flock of cultists can have the religious freedom to worship him.

But when the team reaches Ganymede in their Starship Venture, they discover something has gone horribly wrong…

This ghost story in space reunites comics’ king of the macabre Steve Niles with his longtime collaborator Christopher Mitten, whose stylish mix of grit and flow matches Steve’s sharp characterizations and taste for screams. »

Arrow Deserves More Praise For Its Geektastic Guest Star List

17 May 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ever since The CW's Arrow first premiered back in October 2012, the show has been dealing out weekly superhero fisticuffs like no one's business.  It's a superhero show that's laid the groundwork for The Flash and the upcoming CBS superhero show, Supergirl.  While there are a lot of things Arrow does right, one aspect of the show that does not receive enough praise is its penchant for having guest stars from other fan-favorite, sci-fi and geek TV shows.  To date, we've had Spartacus' Crixus (Manu Bennett), X2's Lady Deathstrike (Kelly Hu), Street Fighter's Ryu (Byron Mann) and Firefly's River Tam (Summer Glau) to name but a few.   As the wait for Arrow season 4 begins, we're going to shine the spotlight on all the geektastic guest stars the showrunners manage to cram into Arrow each season.  Lets start where it all began, with Arrow season 1.

'Star Wars' Boba Fett Movie Wants Director Joss Whedon?

8 May 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron is in theaters, the director is essentially parting ways with Marvel, with the filmmaker recently expressing his desire to start writing his own new material. While he doesn't have any confirmed projects in the works, a new report claims that Disney and LucasFilm are courting him to direct one of the Star Wars Anthology movies. Gareth Edwards is directing the first spinoff, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, which starts production this summer and hits theaters next December, but it's possible that Joss Whedon could be courted for the Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett Movie, which Josh Trank recently backed out of.

It's worth noting that this rumor originated at the Get Your Geek On Podcast, where the host admitted to creating this rumor as a joke, to see how quickly a story like this would spread across the Internet. However, various »

Joss Whedon Being Courted For Star Wars?

8 May 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After distancing himself from the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Avengers: Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon may be heading to a galaxy far, far away if Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy and others at Disney have their way. That’s the gist of a new rumor report from Latino Review, which boils its circumspect, rambling story down into this: “Joss Whedon’s circling Star Wars. They are courting him. He is very tired, but – hey! – it’s Star Wars.”

The site’s writer says that when he dug into rumors that Whedon might be wanted for a Star Wars movie, “No One wanted to comment beyond saying that something was happening.” He goes on to say that the Lucasfilm Story Group, Kennedy and Disney have watched him handle the McU with admiration, and they think he’s more than equipped to handle expanding the Star Wars universe for them.

Q&A: Age of Ultron's Joss Whedon on Avengers newcomers, the Hulkbuster, and controlled chaos

7 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The big question before 2012’s The Avengers hit theatres was, how could such an enormous cast of superheroes — each capable of headlining his or her own franchise — come together to create a coherent and watchable movie?

The answer? Great writing and directing, both provided by Joss Whedon (TV’s "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Firefly"). The film was a huge hit with critics and fans and became the third highest-grossing release in history after Avatar and Titanic.

Now, three years later, Whedon is back with the follow-up, Avengers: Age of Ultron, a story that takes the first film’s unwieldy cast — including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) — and only adds to it with three new super-powered characters, Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), the Vision (Paul Bettany) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).

Oh yeah, then »

See ‘Serenity’ on the big screen with Grimm Up North

5 May 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

On the advent of the 10th anniversary of  Serenity, and the release of Whedons sequel to the 3rd biggest film of all time – The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Grimm Up North bring Serenity back to the big screen at Odeon Printworks on May 12th.

For those unfamiliar with the tale of Serenity, the film follows on from the critically acclaimed 2002 TV show Firefly. Upon first airing the show garnered a small but passionate fandom, who had latched onto the show’s captivating ensemble cast, fleshed out universe,  and the unique blend of intergalactic travel & western film iconography. However, Fox TV did not see the show’s potential and killed the series after 12 episodes. In the following years millions of people discovered and fell in love with Firefly, mourning its premature cancellation, so passionately that in 2004 Universal Pictures agreed to finance Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers 1&2) to wrap »

Joss Whedon is off the grid: Avengers director quits Twitter amidst Black Widow backlash

4 May 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon is officially off the grid, having quit Twitter today (May 4).

The filmmaker signed off from the social media service with two final messages to his 1.15 million followers.

Avengers: Age of Ultron takes $187m in massive opening weekend

"Now I may me down to sleep I pray the lord my soul to keep If I should die before I wake 'kay," he initially wrote in reference to the Avengers sequel finally being released.

A final tweet read: "Thank you to all the people who've been so kind and funny and inspiring up in here."

Whedon has been criticised by some Avengers fans and critics for using Scarlett Johansson's international spy Black Widow in a typical 'damsel in distress' role in a few key scenes late in Age of Ultron.

The filmmaker did not directly address the Black Widow backlash on Twitter before leaving the micro-blogging website. »

Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron

1 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The day is finally here, and fans assemble for the follow-up to Marvel's 2012 Joss Whedon-directed hit movie The Avengers. This week's new release, Avengers: Age of Ultron, was also written and directed by Whedon, creator of hit TV franchises Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly.

Marvel continues to tie events in its film franchise to its TV series Agents of Shield, which provides a plausible reason for the group of superheroes to reunite in search of Loki's sceptre. The sceptre has fallen into dangerous hands in the wake of Shield's collapse, as witnessed in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Agents of Shield. The recapture of that artifact leads to the creation of Ultron, a new and deadly cybernetic enemy bent on the team's destruction.

James Spader voices Ultron, and it's hard not to like the villain perhaps more than the heroes with his matter-of-fact quips and insults, »

Martha Thomases Reviews Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron

1 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Lucky for me, it was the “friends and family” screening of Avengers: Age of Ulton.

First of all, I was lucky because I got to go. I was lucky to hear Joe Quesada introduce the film, not only because he was amusing but he was gracious enough to thank the event planners before he thanked the Hollywood bosses. Trust me, as someone who has worked events for more than 20 years, it’s unusual when someone says “Thank you.” He also thanked all the people who worked on the books, the source material for the movies.

And I was lucky because of the audience. The people in Manhattan’s Ziegfeld Theater on Tuesday were Marvel (and Disney) employees, freelancers, and their plus-ones. It was the kind of audience that cheered the coming attractions (Ant-Man), of course. They cheered the created-by credits. They cheered Stan Lee. From their cheers, I could »

Film Review: Mixed Bag of Marvel Tricks in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

30 April 2015 6:14 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Whew. There is so much going on in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” that you practically need a program to keep up with the players. This mixed bag has overwrought comic book action, head shaking plot points, and the usual Marvel angst that includes some riveting scenes.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Joss Whedon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) is the writer and director on this chapter, and adds layer upon layer to the copious amount of superheroes. Relying on the insight that the audience is fully invested in the Avengers – Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow – Whedon piles on some new super faces and a prickly villain named Ultron. The story is comic book epic, but depends on the audience to keep up with it, while throwing in the usual titanic battle sequences. These confrontations are vast in scale, sometimes reducing the heroes to acrobatic CGI cartoon figures. »
