Ming-Na Wen goes from S.H.I.E.L.D. agent to time travel agent for Disney XD
AnimationFix: Your regular round-up of the latest animation news, from HitFix reporter Emily Rome Ming-Na Wen is ever-strengthening her family ties to Disney, now aboard the House of Mouse’s upcoming animated series Milo Murphy’s Law. Wen — known for kicking butt both as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Melinda May and as the voice of Mulan — has joined Milo Murphy’s Law as a recurring cast member.

60 Years of Godzilla: A History and Critique of the Greatest Monster Movie Series in Cinema

**Massive spoilers for every Godzilla movie, with the exception of the 2014 reboot, and Mothra follow**

August 6th and 9th, 1945 forever changed the course of history. When the first nuclear bombs were dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, World War II ended, but a new fear was born that dominated the thoughts of all men, women, and children for decades to come. The Cold War, atomic bomb testing, a cartoon turtle telling children to “duck and cover”, and this new technology that had the actual potential to literally end the world changed the perception of what was scary. Art reflects life, so cinema began to capitalize on these fears. Gone were the days of creepy castles, cobwebs, bats, vampires, werewolves, and the other iconic images that ruled genre cinema in film’s earliest decades. Science fiction was larger than ever and giant ants, giant octopi, terror from beyond the stars, and

Saturday Morning Cartoon: Chase ‘Godzilla’ with Two Homages to Kaiju

Judging by the crazy advanced ticket sales for Godzilla, by this point many of you have already seen the movie. Given the ecstatic reviews that it’s been getting I think it’s safe to assume that the bulk of you are all hopped up on kaiju and desperate for more. And, thanks to the rabid fandom that has developed over the years for this particular brand of Japanese monster, there are plenty of cartoon lizards just waiting to be devoured online. Godzilla has starred in two different animated television series. The first was simply titled Godzilla, and was co-produced by Hanna-Barbera and Toho. It aired in both the United States and Japan starting in the fall of 1978. Following a team of scientists as they travel the world on a ship, Godzilla is more of a plot device than a character. In the monster’s stead is Godzooky, his much more reasonably sized cousin. Godzooky

First Look At The Governator In Three Minute Trailer

In recent weeks, news came out that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be returning to the entertainment industry, but not quite the way everyone expected. It appeared that Schwarzenegger would be teaming with Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee to create a new superhero comic and TV series titled The Governator. It was then announced that in addition to the comic book and series, that a 3-D feature film was being put into production. But the question still remains… What can we expect from the project? Well that question has been answered with a trailer: Now, a lot of people will look at this three minute trailer and see many things. But what I see is a throw-back to a style of animation that many children (such as myself) came to know and love in the late nineties with series’ like Godzilla: The Series and Men In Black: The Series. If the final product is anything like this, then
