Why Can’t The Movies Get Storm Right?

Despite Storm’s status as a heavy-hitter in the X-Men comics, she's a B-lister in the movies. What did the movie makers fail to understand about the character?

‘Batman vs. Superman’ Rumor Control: No, Michael Shannon’s Zod Does Not Have Flipper Hands

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

A few weeks ago Michael Shannon got the internet buzzing when he made comments during an interview about his involvement in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It involved General Zod (whose corpse appears briefly in the trailers), flipper-hands and a hilarious story about a port-a-potty. Michael Shannon would now like you to know that he was joking.

She Is The One! Best ‘Sailor Moon’ Fan Art Ever

Feature

I’ve done a number of these “Best Art Ever” galleries now, and I can say, without hesitation, that this one was the hardest to put together by far. By far. Not because it was difficult scrounging up enough cool art to fill a gallery, but because there was enough amazing art to fill a hundred galleries! I swear, there are people on DeviantArt who draw nothing but Sailor Moon. People who have page after page of fantastic fanart dedicated to ol’ Meatball Head and her friends and enemies. It’s ludicrous how many great takes and redesigns and re-imaginings there are out there, and I know there were probably so, so, so many that I never even saw.

‘Flash’ Season 2 Casts ‘Candyman’ Tony Todd as Mystery Big Bad ‘Zoom’

Flash Season 2 Zoom Tony Todd
The CW / Warner Bros.

We knew as far back as Comic-Con 2015 that The Flash would face off against “Zoom” in Season 2, though even among comic fans, the name didn’t provide the clearest picture of Barry’s new big bad. Now, we at least have a voice in Candyman legend Tony Todd, as well as a few new details on the Venom-like “speed demon.”

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Quakes, Blows Up The Bus in Season 2 VFX Reel

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 FX Reel
Marvel / ABC

Though perhaps not the all-out spectacle of its cinematic forebears, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. burns through quite a bit of CGI, particularly in its second season. Season 3's Secret Warriors will undoubtedly bring even more powers into the mix, so take a look at Season 2's VFX reel, including Skye’s Quake-ing powers and some serious spectacle to The Bus’ destruction.

Exclusive: Archaia Announces ‘Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons’

StorytellerDragons_feat2

Jim Henson's The Storyteller is in contention for the title of greatest TV show ever made --- it's basically between that, The Wire, Deadwood, and The Great British Bake-Off. Originally running for just one season of nine episodes in the late 1980s, the show combined European folklore, Jim Henson's muppetry, and respected British character actors like John Hurt, Jonathan Pryce, Sean Bean, Brenda Blethyn, and Jennifer Saunders, to spin standalone traditional tales that, watched once, would stay with you forever.

Archaia first revived the brand in 2011 as part of its Jim Henson line, with some of the best up-and-coming creators spinning their own takes on classic folktales in comics form. More amazing creators stepped up to conjure occult yarns for 2014's The Storyteller: Witches, and now ComicsAlliance can exclusively reveal the next installment in Archaia's Storyteller series: The Storyteller: Dragons.

Here’s What the ‘Iron Man’ Movie Logo Almost Looked Like

imlogo

Every time you see a logo for anything, whether it be on a soda can or a movie poster, you are looking at the result of a lot of hard work. Specifically, you’re looking at a design that was reached over time, with a designer and a company going back and forth until they reach a final goal. Any official movie logo is only one of dozens that was created. For those who like to see how this particular portion of the movie sausage is made, a new interview with artist Fede Ponce should prove enlightening … especially when you see how many of his ideas for the Iron Man logo didn’t make the final cut.

Ranger Station Episode 3: Teamwork

Ranger Station Episode 3: Teamwork

With almost 800 episodes over the course of 22 years, the Power Rangers television show is arguably the single most successful live-action superhero franchise of all time, and certainly one of the strangest. Adapted from Japan's long-running Super Sentai series, created by manga legend Shotaro Ishinomori, the Power Rangers combined the giant robots and monsters of their Japanese counterpart with a completely different set of secret identities and problems, and became a pop cultural phenomenon. That's why we're looking back with an in-depth guide to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, including its source material, Kyuoryu Sentai Zyuranger, in ComicsAlliance's Ranger Station!

This week, the Rangers get their weapons and we have an exclusive as we hear directly from a rather surprising actor who appeared in this actual episode!
