John Ostrander: Heroes For Hire Redux

2 hours ago | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Boy, do I have Christmas gift ideas for you! Volume 5 of the Suicide Squad reprints, Apokolips Now, goes on sale December 27 (okay, it just misses Christmas). The extended blu-ray for the movie goes on sale December 13. And Marvel is releasing the first of two volumes gathering my Heroes For Hire work on December 20. You’re right, we want all your monies.

Today I want to talk about H4H. It was a team book whose members included Iron Fist, Luke Cage, White Tiger, Black Knight, Ant-Man, Jim Hammond (a.k.a. the Original Human Torch) plus assorted guest stars rotating in and out such as Hulk, She-Hulk, Hercules and, eventually, Deadpool – who shows up in Volume 2 out in late January.

It’s not hard to understand why Marvel is re-issuing the stories in a Tpb. Luke Cage is on Netflix and Iron Fist soon will be, they’ll both then appear in The Defenders, »

Holy Crap! You Must Hear About This Spider-man: Homecoming Clip!

2 December 2016 9:54 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Earlier this week I mused that Sony and Marvel Studios are so confident that the Spider-Man property is a money-printing machine that they can just relax and do a "less is more" promotional campaign for his next film. Now that he was so successfully reintroduced in Captain America: Civil War, and now that fans everywhere know that he's part of a shared world that includes The Avengers, they could just coast on by without revealing much and the movie would still make a mint when Spider-Man: Homecoming comes out next July.

But it sounds like Sony/Marvel aren't going to be content to rest on their laurels after all...

At the Ccxp event taking place in Brazil, Sony just screened a clip from Spider-Man: Homecoming that's apparently going to be part of the trailer that's going to be attached to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Aquaman Gets Working Title, Is Set To Have A Whale Of A Good Time

1 December 2016 5:25 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Image via Warner Bros.

For those who don’t know what a working title for a film is, it is a name given to a film in pre-production and sometimes even into the stages of the final cut. The reasons for them are usually for either accounting or managerial purposes, and more often than not, they have little to do with the actual film. In the past, there have been a few of these titles that have accidentally or intentionally mislead the viewer. Some of the best ones are Group Hug (The Avengers), Spaceman from Pluto (Back to the Future), and my favorite, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Blade Runner).

Arthur Curry, or Aquaman, has fallen prey to the lack of imagination with working movie titles and according to Production Weekly (via Comicbook.com), the film is called Ahab.  

As stated above, not every film has a working title indicative of the actual movie, »

30 November 2016 2:50 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lady Gaga could not have been more excited for her big Victoria's Secret Fashion Show performance.

Et's Kevin Frazier caught up with the 30-year-old singer backstage, where she opened up about how she prepared for her runway performance versus taking the stage to sing the national anthem at last year's Super Bowl.

"I treat the show the same. You know every show is important, every show you want to give everything you can to the audience," she shared. "It's something that kind of never leaves you, whether it's a bar and it's small or it's Madison Square Garden or it's the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Grand Palais, or it's the Super Bowl halftime show."

Proof Winter Soldier Becomes Captain America in Infinity War?

29 November 2016 2:29 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Captain America: Civil War is the highest grossing movie of 2016 and rounded out one of the best trilogies in modern cinema. Unfortunately, Chris Evans can't play Captain America forever, but Marvel may have a plan in place, which Sebastian Stan might be teasing us with. Is Bucky going to be taking over for Steve Rogers as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point?

The actor recently made a post to his Instagram which featured him holding an Captain America shield on his back. The shield was made for him by Casey McBroom who works for a company named Shield Labs, who makes "cool stuff for cooler people." Here is what Sebastian Stan had to say about the picture in his post.

"Excuse me...where's the restroom?" A big thank you and shout out to Casey McBroom@shield_labs for making this for me. Will come in handy. »

Arrow season 5: how the show got its groove back

Caroline Preece Nov 28, 2016

Arrow season 5 has been getting everything right lately, just in time for its 100th episode...

Warning: contains spoilers for Arrow season 5 episodes 1 to 7.

Any show's 100th episode is a tricky thing to get right but, for Arrow - the series that began what is now affectionately called the 'Berlanti-verse' - it's a mountainous task.

But here we are, five seasons and 99-episodes deep into a show whose only model for success at the time of its pilot was the recently-departed Smallville. From the start, it had more in common with the then-successful Nolan Dark Knight movies, and less with your Lois And Clarks of the world, »

‘Moana’ Tops Thanksgiving Box Office, ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Bombs, ‘Allied’ and ‘Bad Santa 2’ Stumble

27 November 2016 7:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney’s “Moana” sailed to the top of the Thanksgiving box office, earning a mighty $81.1 million over the five-day holiday period and $55.5 million for the weekend.

Its success builds on the studio’s hot streak. Disney has released five of the year’s ten highest grossing films, is the leader in terms of market share, and is poised to set a new record for annual grosses. Its hits include “Captain America: Civil War,”  “Zootopia,” “Doctor Strange,” “Finding Dory,” “The Jungle Book,” and now “Moana,” with “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” waiting in the wings.

Disney distribution chief Dave Hollis said that the success of “Moana” and others like it justified the company’s decision to make fewer films, while taking bigger bets. Part of that strategy involved shelling out billions of dollars to buy Pixar, Marvel, and LucasFilm, the brands behind “Toy Story,” “The Avengers,” and “Star Wars.”

Iron Man was always qualified to become an Avenger. It was just in his makeup. It was who he was. Tony Stark, on the other hand, it’s never been as cut and dry. Which is why this is an Iron Man Statue and not one of Mr. Stark.

Depicting the now instantly recognizable armor and standing at 15.75” tall, this 1:5 scale statue features light up hands and chest and is crafted out of resin. The Sideshow Exclusive variation includes the classic Iron Man portrait as a swap-out option.

I told you Class was full of helpful messages for its young audience. This week’s episode ended with the implicit reminder that, when shagging an almost total stranger in a cabinet, it’s a good idea to use protection unless you want to be left with a souvenir.

‘Jungle Book,’ ‘Rogue One,’ ‘Doctor Strange’ Lead Visual Effects Oscar Race

25 November 2016 10:08 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Members of the Academy’s visual effects branch will have their work cut out for them in narrowing this year’s wide-ranging field of big-screen spectacles down to 10 semi-finalists for the bakeoff stage in a few weeks, let alone settling on five nominees to fill out the Oscar ballot.

At least two films are all but locked for recognition, and one of them we can probably feel safe in calling sight-unseen: “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” No one will get a look at the film until the Dec. 10 Hollywood premiere, but the mega franchise’s history in this category is difficult to ignore; the only “Star Wars” film to be dismissed by the visual effects branch was “Revenge of the Sith” in 2005, when the whole enterprise had become rather stale (despite, naturally, showing no signs of weakness at the box office). Not only that, but visual effects play into »

Avengers and X-Men Crossover Movie Is Impossible Says Kevin Feige

22 November 2016 10:37 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

No matter how much time goes by or how many great things Marvel Studios seems to accomplish, it'll never quite be enough. That's because fans are still holding out hope that someday, somehow, Fox will make a deal that allows for the X-Men and/or Fantastic Four to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe and crossover with The Avengers. Don't get your hopes up, because Kevin Feige just shut that down. At least for a very long time.

The Marvel Studios President recently did an interview with Variety and as is often the case, the possibility of a deal with Fox came up. Kevin Feige sounded less than optimistic about it. In fact, he pretty much ruled it out entirely for the foreseeable future. Here is what he had to say.

"It's an impossibility at this juncture. We certainly have enough films to keep us busy for a number of lifetimes. »
