When we asked our staff to vote on the best comic book movie adaptations, we were afraid the results would consist only of superhero films. While there are many superhero movies listed below, it is great to see a bulk of non-Hollywood films appearing on the list as well. We set out to compile a list of 50 movies but as it were, we ended up with 5 ties, and so the list consists 55 films instead. Let us know if you think we missed something. Enjoy!
Spielberg’s first venture into animation is one of his best. Taking notes from the classic Raiders of the Lost Ark playbook, Spielberg crafted another spirited, thrilling, and always entertaining adventure. The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most pleasurable, family-friendly experiences, that boils down to one grand treasure hunt. There’s much to admire on-screen, but it is the spectacular »
Take another look @ leaked set images from the Berlin, Germany set of Marvel Studios' "Captain America: Civil War", featuring stunt work with 'Black Panther', 'The Winter Soldier' 'Captain America' and a whole lot more:

But why are these old friends fighting? And why have the other Avengers chosen the sides they have? Here's everything you need to know about the opposing sides of the Civil War.
Everything we know about Captain America: Civil War
The opening of the film will see the Avengers torn apart after an "international incident" leads the Us government to create strict new rules to control superheroes (Mark Millar and Steve McNiven's 2006 Civil War comic dubbed it the Superhero Registration Act).
Tony Stark throws his support behind the act, but who else agrees with his position?
Her relationships in the film version of the Avengers makes Black Widow's decision to support Stark a »
There has been an awakening in the force. Only it's not at LucasFilm. This time it's at Marvel. After what is being described as years of frustration, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige is finally being freed from the Emperor like vice-grip of penny-pinching Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac "Ike" Perlmutter, who is clearly being made to look like an old school villain in the press. Marvel Studios will now report directly to Disney chief Alan Horn in a company wide shake-up that promises to bring big changes to the McU. But is it for the better?
Kevin Feige is himself responsible for pulling off this reorganization of the film company side of Marvel. Kevin Feige is credited as being the architect who transitioned Marvel from a failing comic book giant into a movie powerhouse, which sold to Disney for $4 billion in 2009. He is said to have expressed his displeasure with working »
"Marvel Studios is taking the next logical step in its integration with The Walt Disney Studios, joining Pixar and Lucasfilm in centralising many of its film-related functions in Burbank, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and co-president Louis D'Esposito continuing to lead the Marvel Studios team reporting to Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn," said a Disney spokesperson.
Marvel Entertainment will continue to oversee Marvel's TV properties.
The next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Captain America: Civil War, which centres on the Marvel universe being divided when government agencies try to rein in the Avengers.
Since the release of Iron Man in 2008, Marvel Studios has operated under Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac "Ike" Perlmutter. However, after what The Hollywood Reporter's sources describe as "several years of frustration," Kevin Feige will now report directly to Disney boss Alan Horn. This is no rumour either, as a Disney spokesperson confirmed the behind the scenes shift in a statement earlier today. "Marvel Studios is taking the next logical step in its integration with The Walt Disney Studios, joining Pixar and Lucasfilm in centralizing many of its film-related functions in Burbank, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and co-president Louis D’Esposito continuing to lead the Marvel Studios team reporting to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn." Tales of just how frugal Perlmutter is are legendary, and as the Marvel Cinematic Universe gets bigger and bigger, it could be that Feige has finally had enough of those kinds of restrictions. »
Last week, promo art from Captain America: Civil War showed how the teams will be split down the middle. What the art didn't show was Spider-Man, and his allegiance to either Steve Rogers or Tony Stark. The comic book had him siding with Iron Man first, but he later defected to the side of America's first Avenger. A new rumor hints that the first part of this is true, while also positioning the idea that Stark plays an important role in the creation and myth that is Spider-Man. But is it true?
In the comic books upon which Captain America: Civil War is based, the billionaire industrialist Tony Stark gave teenage wall-crawler Peter Parker a set of armor dubbed The Iron Spider suit. It was an indestructible costume used in battle against the opposing superheroes. There are various reports that Peter Parker will be donning two very different, distinct suits »
Of all the potential partnerships and bromances bubbling beneath the surface of Joe and Anthony Russo’s Captain America: Civil War, the one that has caught our attention and refuses to let go is that between Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Tom Holland’s new webslinger on the block, Spider-Man.
From the leaked trailer over the weekend and even the original still that appeared to showcase Holland in an early version of the suit, it seems a safe bet that the pair will cross paths in a big way. But in what capacity?
More News From The Web
Latino Review has the latest (wholly unofficial) rumor on Spidey and his anticipated debut in Civil War, with the outlet claiming to have sources close to production that know of Holland’s new-fangled suit and how it plays into the grand scheme of things in next year’s superhero blockbuster. »

Last week, we showed you two previews for Avengers: Age of Ultron's release on 3D Digital and Digital HD September 8 and on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Sd and VOD October 2. While those previews showcased new characters Vision (Paul Bettany) and Ultron (James Spader), today we have yet another featurette, which features the superhero siblings Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Both of the stars reveal how they worked with director Joss Whedon to develop their incredible super powers.
We also get plenty of behind-the-scenes footage with Joss Whedon, executive producer Victoria Alonso, and visual effects supervisor Christopher Townsend showcasing how they came up with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver's powers, while Elizabeth Olsen reveals she even worked with a dancer, to get the right movements down to portray Scarlet Witch.

Black Widow can punch explosions.
Fantastic…Bore. Fantastic…Fourth Worst Movie Ever Made. Fantastic…4%. Or, as some have taken to calling it, just ‘Four’.
It was the fail story of the Summer, with Twentieth Century Fox’s tentpole superhero blockbuster bombing so hard at the box office, it took out a five-mile stretch of Odeons in the Greater Bexleyheath area. In the September edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, Oli Davis, Rebecca Perfect, Luke Owen and Kat Kourbeti discuss the problems with the movie, the practice of entrusting $100million+ franchises with young, independent filmmakers (think Gareth Edwards on Godzilla and Colin Treverrow on Jurassic World), and who is really to blame for the movie’s failure – Fantastic Four’s director Josh Trank, or the studio that allegedly hamstrung his production?
Fantastic Four also gets to be the first film receiving the Best Bad Reviews treatment – our new series that »

Earlier in the week, we shared The Iron Giant re-release trailer as Warner Bros. and Fathom Events announced the animated classic is heading back to theaters this September, prior to the release of The Iron Giant: Signature Edition Blu-ray. Now, we have word that a sequel may be in the works. And these words comes directly from The Iron Giant himself. Yes, Vin Diesel thinks we're getting an Iron Giant 2 announcement soon. He shared this on his Facebook page while promoting the return of this sci-fi adventure.
"I have been very lucky to have played so many interesting characters... one of the first and one of my favorites is... the Iron Giant. P.s. Don't be surprised when you hear WB announce the sequel."

Early this week, we saw new promo art that revealed the Captain America: Civil War teams, giving us an idea of who sides with Steve Rogers and who sides with Tony Stark. We get to see those teams taking shape in a group of Gifs and images leaked from the epic D23 trailer that premiered in Anaheim 2 weekends ago. The images aren't the greatest quality. But they offer everyone who wasn't in attendance an idea of what they missed.
In Captain America: Civil War, the superheroes of the world are turn apart by the Sokovia Accords. This so-called Superhero Registration Act demands that all humans (and some non-humans) with super powers identify themselves and be held responsible for their actions. Steve Rogers is against this act, and with him goes Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Agent Sharon Carter, The Winter Soldier and The Falcon. Siding with Tony Stark are War Machine, Black Widow, »
Disney and Marvel done a great job of keeping the Captain America: Civil War footage from D23 offline, but it seems that may be about to change as a batch of images from the footage have sufaced online, and you can check them out here courtesy of Twitter…

While video game adaptions rarely work, this doesn’t stop from Hollywood from trying, but the tide may turn with the Michael Fassbender donning the hood for next years Assassin’s Creed and a possible Tom Hardy starring Splinter Cell on the horizon.
