Producer Bryan Singer has revealed the next X-Men movie will be “Days of Future Past,” but will this movie go beyond adaptation and try to fix the long-suffering franchise from its own worst mistakes?
One of the things everyone seems to agree on regarding The Dark Knight Rises is Joseph Gordon Levitt’s rookie cop John Blake. Blake has the best arc in the movie– and possibly Nolan’s entire trilogy– and his conclusion offers the most fascinating part of the ending of this series.
In light of the tragic shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, CO– which left over a dozen people dead and three dozen more injured or hospitalized– people are already looking for motives… and unfortunately that likely means the latest round of blaming a comic book for the actions of one mentally unstable person, which is the last thing anyone needs in this time of sadness.
Each year Comic Con grows and spreads to the streets, way past the walls of the Convention Center. Some companies went all-in with some great interactive campaigns which kept fans engaged throughout the city. Here’s a few of my favorites.
Anthony Bourdain was at Comic Con to promote his new Vertigo graphic novel Get Jiro! and in true gonzo fashion, I turned a chance encounter with the No Reservations star turned into a quick interview. Check it out…
It looks like the cosmic cat is out of the bag– Latino Review is reporting Marvel Studios will announce Guardians of the Galaxy as their next big movie at Comic Con. Guardians is expected to be released in 2014, and will tie in directly to The Avengers 2. But who will the Guardians be? Here’s our best guesses…
The Avengers movie was obviously a smash hit, breaking box office records and living up to the potential we all hoped for. The finest toys released for the movie were without a doubt Hasbro’s Legends Series Avengers, which captured the on-screen looks of the super hero team perfectly. Sadly, the assortment is exclusive to Wal-Mart, notoriously the most difficult retailer at which to find exclusives, but in spite of the difficult hunt the toys have been selling out astonishingly quickly. Which is exactly why Hasbro needs to hurry up and make more of them as soon as possible.
Like many Star Wars fans these days, I have a kind of conflicted relationship with the Galaxy Far, Far Away. But recently, things have changed and I’m kind of back into Star Wars… the toys, at least. So I wanted to write about it…
The buzz had been building for years about the Return of Marvel Legends, although the sales of the first two waves of figures came as a surprise to everyone, including Hasbro. Now the company finds themselves in an interesting spot where demand is very high… but they need to think smart if they’re going to keep this line going as strong as we all hope.
In the last two weeks, Warner Bros has released over a dozen new posters and promo banners for The Dark Knight Rises, and they really run the gamut from bad to awesome. Just for fun, we’re ranking the posters in order from the worst to the best… check it out and let us know if you agree!
When NBC announced the best show on their network, Community, was being picked up for a short fourth season, there was much rejoicing… but now it looks like we may have been a little pre-emptive in that celebration. Community will be coming back in the Fall, but showrunner/ show creator/ overall genius Dan Harmon has been removed as showrunner by Sony.
