Here’s another look at Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers” all assembled and ready for battle in a new promotional tie-in with the comic book universe. I doubt if those are the actual actors getting together in costume on a stage and having their pic snapped. More like a nice Alex Ross-ish comic book cover with the actors’ faces penciled in to reflect the cast of the movie. Either way, it’s still kinda cool to see them all together. The whole thing, of course, is to get some of you non-comic book reading nerds out there to familiarize yourself with the characters’ comic book roots via re-releases of their popular comic book storylines, including their “Ultimate Avengers” version, which, in many ways, the upcoming movie represents more than the traditional Marvel versions. Odd how that worked out… The film, starring Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, »
Comic-Con International has released the full schedule for Sunday July 24th for San Diego Comic-Con 2011. This is the final day of the convention. Sunday is known as Kids day and is usually the slowest of all the days, there are a few surprises though. In all my years of going to Comic-Con I've never been to a panel in Hal H. Usually nothing is happening in Hall H on Sunday, this year there are a few TV programs going on in Hall H such a as Glee, Supernatural, Doctor Who, The Cleveland Show, Sons of Anarchy, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and this year Buffy the Musical will be in the great Hall as well. I've never been to the Buffy Musical event, and I think I finally want to go this year. A couple of other things worth noting are a one on one panel with Nathan Fillion, and Max Brooks talks about zombies. »

Another week, another list of DVDs and Blu-rays out to buy from today – and what a selection of titles: action, drama, award-winners and even some complete drivel. I’ll let you decide which is which!
Red (DVD & Blu-ray) – Frank (Bruce Willis), Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich) and Victoria (Helen Mirren) used to be the CIA’s top agents – but the secrets they know just made them the Agency’s top targets. Now framed for assassination, they must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive. To stop the operation, the team embarks on an impossible, cross-country mission to break into the top-secret CIA headquarters, where they will uncover one of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups in government history. Review.
Creators threw clothing to the wind today as Doug Tennapel contemplated shirtlessness and Brian Michael Bendis made a shocking revelation about his use of pants. Their carefree attitudes were accompanied by sadness, however, in the wake of Activision's "Guitar Hero" cancellation announcement.
Elsewhere, Erik Larsen's convention frustrations, I noted yesterday, continued to grow, and he's now got WonderCon in his crosshairs as well. Today's rundown will let you know why, along with an explanation from Mark Millar about Ultimate Thor's dialect, and a plea for "Glee."

Hey gang! Here's an early look at one of the variant comic book covers for The Death of Spider-Man which begins in the issues of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man and Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates this month. This is the final issue of the story arc. This variant art was done by Ed McGuiness, who’s currently back on the Hulk series. Issue 157 of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man is set to be released in April.
This is apparently going to be a major game changer for the Ultimate Marvel Universe. And why wouldn't it? They are killing off Spider-Man! It will be interesting to see where they take the story from here. If they replace him with some new lame superhero or bring him back to life.
Check out the cover art and tell us what you think!

You can’t keep the King of Wakanda down, especially when he’d make a really, really good big-screen movie. While he’s not nearly as well-known as, say, Spider-Man or Captain America, the Panther’s got real potential. And besides, being obscure didn’t exactly hurt Blade or Ghost Rider. Marvel Studios apparently still thinks a movie version is worthwhile, and has hired screenwriter Mark Bailey, known primarily for gritty documentaries, to pen a script for them. In the comics, the Black Panther is the not-so-secret superhero identity of T’Challa, the King of a fictional African country called Wakanda. The Panther is a member of the Avengers, and has appeared in various incarnations, including the most recent “Ultimate Avengers” direct-to-dvd movie, “Rise of the Panther”. As you may or may not recall, a “Black Panther” movie has been in development at one studio or another over the years, »
