Superior

When people complain about Mark Millar’s comics being too dark, and about him making all of his superheroes one-dimensional jerks, and about his comics all having too much cynicism and not enough heart, Superior is the comic I put forth as a counter-argument. This modernized re-imagining of the Captain Marvel story is all heart, it’s […]

bayturtles

So here’s Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer. Hold me. “Crime, violence and fear have run rampant,” this trailer for an adaptation of something that used to be a light-hearted kids show about human-sized turtles eating pizza intones.

Spider-Verse

The upcoming Spider storyline “Spider-Verse” features all of the wild and wacky Spider-Men, women, boys, and girls Marvel has created over the years.

Wolverine Is Not Going To Die

Wolverine Dead

Sure, Marvel is teasing that Wolverine is going to die. They’ve got a whole “3 Months To Die” storyline going on, with a teaser image above, and Wolverine will “die” in that.

NBC Releases First Photo of ‘Constantine’

John Constantine

Pretty cool, huh? Looks like it’s going to be about some kind of giant. Like, a really rich giant. That eats castles. Oh, they mean the guy in the trench coat. Not the emperor. Well. I guess in this getup Matt Ryan looks, at least superficially, like John Constantine. He’s way too clean, and that […]
