The Flash has primarily made use of time-travel to visit the past, but with Savitar’s murder of Iris looming, a trip to the future is in order. As such, next month’s “Once and Future Flash” may finally introduce us to the 2024 Barry, complete with a much more comic-looking costume.
The deal between Marvel and Sony that allowed Peter Parker to join up with the Avengers is actually kind of extraordinary. More often than not — all the time, really — studios jealously hold tight to their superhero properties, often, as with Fantastic Four, making movies just so they can keep the rights. But Spider-Man allowed two studios to co-parent a character, allowing and other Avengers to ping-pong between movie universes, appearing in both. But that deal seems like it may be up in the air after whatever follows Spider-Man: Homecoming.
With VR an up-and-coming storytelling medium, all the big studios want in on the action. Gone are the days of 4-D pirate adventures with seats that spit water into your face. The people don’t want to be in the movie anymore, they want to be the movie. The latest studio to get into the biz is Warner Bros., inking a deal with IMAX’s new VR component for virtual reality experiences based around the Justice League.
We’ve still one more episode to conclude Season 1 of Noah Hawley’s FX Legion, though the series took a major step toward comic continuity with the reveal of its Shadow-y big bad. Now, Hawley reveals the potential for Season 2 to skew even more X-mentioning, perhaps even introducing Charles Xavier himself.
Because Marvel and DC seem to have gotten wind of the majority of our culture’s at best toleration of and at worst boredom with the current cookie-cutter state of superhero movies, both studios have been looking to bring in some new talent. Many of the upcoming films on Marvel’s slate will be directed by folks who only recently made their indie debuts. Now it looks like the studios are looking for fresh takes on the material in some more unexpected places. Like Aaron Sorkin, for instance.
Pretty much the the two things we definitely, absolutely know about Black Panther is that Black Panther will be in it, and it’ll feature a pretty grand-scale car chase scene in the middle of Busan, South Korea. They’ve been filming the car chase for the past week, which is why we’ve been hearing so much about it, and today Korea’s branch of the Walt Disney Company has released a first look image of the scene.
For not having had a whole lot of collectibles over the past few years, it certainly shaping up to be a good 2017 for Kamala Khan. The most current Ms. Marvel has been a fan-favorite since her debut, but only now are companies beginning to capitalize on a fanbase eager for ways to show their affections towards the teen hero.
Kotobukiya's upcoming Bishoujo Ms. Marvel sets the bar fairly high for the rest of the competition, capturing Kamala's attitude and style without compromising her character.
Lenore, the "cute little dead girl" who starred in a bunch of hilariously gory and humorously horrific indie comics by Roman Dirge back in the '90s and early 2000s, has clawed her way out of the ground and back into print in The Bloody Best of Lenore, a new hardcover collection from Titan Comics to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the character.
Steven Universe is one of the most exciting animated shows of the last many years, but I probably don't need to tell you that, because you almost certainly watch it. It's great for kids, it has an extremely diverse cast, there's queer representation, and it consistently delivers messages about the importance of compassion and positivity in the face of conflict and despair. It may be exactly the show the world needs right now, so thank the cartoon gods that we have it. In order to celebrate the show, we've picked out the ten very best episodes from the more-than 120 episodes that have aired so far!
After announcing Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series in December, Telltale Games has been very secretive about when and where the spacefaring adventures of Marvel's reluctant heroes would arrive. With nothing but a vague hint that we'd be able to hang with the gang in 2017, many of us eagerly awaited the next details on the developer's first Marvel Comics video game.
Well wonder no more, true believers. Telltale's Guardians are arriving in just a few short weeks this April.
