Warner Bros. brought its DC heroes together this weekend with the release of the DC Extended Universe blockbuster Justice League, and while it managed to edge out Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad in terms of critical reaction, it certainly hasn’t been no Wonder Woman, with the film scoring a 46 on Metacritic and 40% on Rotten Tomatoes (once Rt decided to release its rating, that is). Our reviewers seemed a little more positive

Marvel Announces Lego Black Panther Movie “Trouble in Wakanda”

It is already well-known in media circles that ‘Black Panther’, a superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character. Is set for release on February 16, 2018. Avid Marvel fans and movie enthusiasts are also aware of this and are awaiting the release date with anticipation. What fewer people know is that this is not the only ‘Black Panther’ movie planned for release next year. Cort Lane, Marvel’s Vice President of animation, made a big announcement at the New York Comic Con. He wanted to let everyone know that Lego is currently working on an animated version of this character

Marvel's Black Panther is Getting His Own Lego Movie

Over the weekend, during New York Comic Con, it was announced by Marvel's VP of Animation Cort Lane that Marvel Animation would be teaming up with the Lego Group to make an animated Black Panther Lego Movie. The movie will be called Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda.

There are no other details than that, but I seriously doubt it will be up to the level of what Warner Bros. is doing with their Lego movies. This will probably just end up being a silly direct-to-Blu-ray/digital release.

Marvel Animation really isn't doing anything impressive with their projects these days, which is why I'm not expecting much. But, it might be something that will be fun for the kids to watch and it will certainly help them learn more about the character and who he is. 

Anyone looking forward to seeing a Black Panther Lego movie?

Jill Scott cast as DC villain Lady Eve in Black Lightning

The CW’s new superhero show Black Lightning has added Grammy Award-winning singer and actress Jill Scott to its cast in the role of the DC villain Lady Eve.

Deadline reports that the show’s incarnation of the character “will be the bridge between Tobias Whale (Marvin “Krondon” Jones III) and a secret group of corrupt leaders. Always a consummate professional, Lady Eve presents herself in Freeland as the owner of a funeral parlor, but quickly becomes an adversary to Black Lightning.”

Scott’s previous credits include Why Did I Get Married, Steel Magnolias, and guest turns on Fringe and Being Mary Jane, while she also lent her voice to Storm in Bet’s 2010 Black Panther animated series.

Martha Thomases: TV or Not TV?

  • Comicmix
As I was watching the 2017 Emmy Awards last Sunday, I thought about how much the television industry has changed. It’s a cliché to say that this is the Golden Age of Television, but, in many ways, that is true.

However, that is not what I want to talk about.

Women and people of color won an unusually high percentage of awards. I mean, women always win in the “Best Actress” categories, but there were women (and people of color) (and queer people) winning in the writing and directing categories as well. This didn’t go unnoticed. To quote from Master of None writer Lena Waithe’s acceptance speech “And last, but certainly not least, my L.G.B.T.Q.I.A. family. I see each and every one of you. The things that make us different, those are our superpowers. Every day, when you walk out the door

Marvel Promises To Reveal Steve Rogers’ Secret In Secret Empire #9

Now that we’re past the halfway point when it comes to Marvel’s currently unfolding major crossover event, Secret Empire, we fully expect Nick Spencer and company to kick things into high gear. And, for your own safety, it’s recommended that you not take a drink any time the word “secret” is used by either us or the publisher from here on out.

As you know by now, the limited series was granted an extension by one issue not long ago, forcing many readers to question how this book is being paced. Well, according to Marvel themselves, Steve Rogers’ secret – whatever it may be – will be revealed within the pages of Secret Empire #9 later this summer. Needless to say, that gives the creative team plenty of time to explore the fallout in the finale.

In fact, let’s read their teaser before proceeding any further:

Luke Cage Season 2 to Include Nighthawk and Bushmaster

Marvel has just announced two new roles in the Luke Cage Netflix Series. Moreover, they are they got a couple of solid actors to play them.

Mustafa Shakir (The Night Of) has been cast as Bushmaster aka John McIver. He is described as "a natural leader, brimming with charisma, whose mission is focused on Harlem and vengeance." The other role Nighthawk, will be played by Gabrielle Dennis (Rosewood).

Tilda Johnson a.k.a. Nighthawk a.k.a. Nightshade is described as "a brilliant holistic doctor with a complicated history in Harlem where, as much as she tries to say far from trouble, it seems to always find her."

This is very interesting, especially considering Marvel's Black Panther movie also has Tilda Johnson in it and they have a different actress playing her. That actress is Nabiyah Be. Two different actresses playing the same role in the same universe? This, in a way,

Marvel’s Luke Cage adds two new cast members for season 2

Two new faces will be coming to Harlem in season two of Luke Cage, with Marvel and Netflix announcing that Mustafa Sahkir (The Night Of) and Gabrielle Dennis (Rosewood) have been cast in the upcoming season.

Shakir will portray John McIver (a.k.a. Bushmaster), who is described as “a natural leader, brimming with charisma, whose mission is focused on Harlem and vengeance.”

Dennis, meanwhile, will portray Tilda Johnson (a.k.a. Nightshade/Nighthawk), “a brilliant, holistic doctor with a complicated history in Harlem where, as much as she tries to stay far from trouble, it seems to always find her.”

Interestingly, just last month, actress and singer Nabiyah Be revealed that she is also playing the character of Tilda Johnson in next year’s Black Panther.

“Mustafa’s incredible presence and power ignited us from our first meeting, and Gabrielle brings the charm and smarts to a very complicated role,

Valiant’s Supernatural Superhero Movie Shadowman Finds Its Director

It’s not just Marvel and DC characters who we can look forward to seeing in theatres over the next few years, as independent comics company Valiant Entertainment is also working to get in on the lucrative superhero cinematic universe game. In fact, they’ve just taken another giant step forward today, as Shadowman, one of several projects of theirs that are currently in development, has now found its director.

The Hollywood Reporter is telling us that Reginald Hudlin, who’s set to make his directorial debut on upcoming thriller Marshall, has signed on to helm the movie. The filmmaker will be most well known to comic book fans for his four year stint writing Black Panther for Marvel from 2005 to 2008. Most notably, the hero married X-Men member Storm during Hudlin’s run.

Adam Simon, the showrunner for Salem, is penning a new draft of the script for Shadownman. The

Shadowman movie gets Reginald Hudlin as director

Jim Dandy Jun 14, 2017

Valiant continues their march to the big screen with comics veteran Reginald Hudlin directing Shadowman.

Reginald Hudlin, a veteran of just about everything entertainment related, has been brought in to direct Valiant Comics' Shadowman movie according to a report in The Hollywood Reporter.

Hudlin joins Salem showrunner Adam Simon, brought in to rework a script from J Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5, among other things), on the project. Valiant is working with Sony Pictures to bring their comics universe to the big screen, with Harbinger and Bloodshot movies already on the slate. 

Shadowman is the gateway to Valiant's magical side: Jack Boniface is a New Orleans musician who gains the power to influence the Deadside, a supernatural realm just askance of normal reality. He's currently starring in Valiant Comics' annual summer crossover, Rapture, alongside Ninjak, the Geomancer (the living spirit and guardian of Earth), and Punk Mambo.

Film Review: ‘Cars 3’

Film Review: ‘Cars 3’
Cars,” back in 2006, was the first Pixar movie that was far more beloved by audiences than critics. That meant something, since Pixar had long been a critical darling. The movie struck many reviewers as being less heady and artful, more insistently conventional, than the “Toy Story” films or “Finding Nemo.” And after it was followed up by the critically revered triple whammy of “Ratatouille,” “Wall-e,” and “Up,” “Cars” languished, in reputation, as a “lesser” Pixar movie. Yet it found a deep place in the hearts of kids (and in many adult kids too), and the critics, in my view, were always too down on its shiny and sentimental off-the-beaten-track-of-Americana appeal.

It was clear that the co-director of “Cars,” the founding Pixar guru John Lasseter, felt close to the film and even protective of it, so five years later, when he made “Cars 2,” you can sort of understand why he shot the works.

Marvel have announced that this August, writer Matt Owens (Elektra) will team with artist Denys Cowan (Nighthawk, Captain America/Black Panther: Flags of Our Fathers) to unveil the exciting story of one of the Jedi’s greatest warriors in Star Wars: Jedi of the Republic – Mace Windu #1. Yes, one of the most accomplished and storied members of the Jedi High Council, Mace Windu, whose wisdom and combat prowess are legendary is getting his own book – in which readers will get to see Mace Windu lead his Jedi into battle… and face the ultimate test of leadership!

“No matter how well trained for battle the Jedi are, having to actually put those skills to use is another thing entirely. The preferred tools of the Jedi are diplomacy, harmony, education, peace.

Will Win: “The Crown

Could Win: “This Is Us

A new champion will be crowned, and we’re betting on Netflix royalty. After the 2016 winner, “Mr. Robot,” missed the cut in 2017, the doors were thrown open, as four freshman dramas stepped in for their shot at Best Drama Series. The two HBO entries may split the vote, considering they appeal to an identical demographic, and “This Is Us” feels a bit too sentimental for the dark taste of the HFPA. Though “Stranger Things” has the buzz, Netflix made “The Crown” to bring home the gold. So odds are the network’s weight is behind its prestige period piece.

Happy Hallowe’en, film fans! Yes, I do insist on spelling it with an apostrophe.

Marvel timed the release of Doctor Strange – the most ghoulishly dark of their Cinematic Universe thus far – rather luckily for late October. Originally the film was scheduled for a Summer opening, but Benedict Cumberbatch was playing Hamlet in the West End, and he answered Shakespeare’s timeless existential question – to be, or not to be a Marvel superhero – with a ‘thanks, but no thanks’.

Kevin Feige delayed the entire production and release for a few

The Rumble in the Jungle! Who Wrote Marvel's Black Panther Comic Book Better?

                         For years now I have been on the internet talking comic books and sparing minds with some of the most creative and intelligent people out here, you know very knowledgeable folks whose wisdom stretch way beyond pop culture such as music, film, and movies etc. When we talk Black Panther there are two names that always seem to pop up, Christopher Priest and Reginald Hudlin. Neither one of these guys created The Black Panther or it's fabulous characters such as T'Challa or Ulyesses Klaw, nor are they the first writers of the Bp, hell I'm not even saying they are the best writers of the Bp especially the way the new series is taking off, but today my focus is between these two extraordinary storytellers who have a completely different background but share the same passion for the same character.
