Dan Abnett To Write A Prose Novel About Rocket Raccoon And Groot, This Is The World We Are Living In Now

Rocket Raccoon And Groot Steal The Galaxy, by Dan Abnett

Ever since the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy hit -- heck, ever since the movie was announced -- the public has been clamoring for more Rocket Raccoon and Groot, the alien warriors who just happen to be a tiny furry cartoon animal and a talking, walking tree, respectively. Now, it seems that excitement over the two characters has hit a fever pitch, with an all-new prose novel by Dan Abnett called Rocket Raccoon and Groot Steal The Galaxy! set to hit bookshelves in July.

One more time, that's a prose novel about Rocket Raccoon and Groot, set to capitalize on the presumed success of the upcoming major, big-budget Guardians of the Galaxy feature film. This is the world we live in now.

‘Indian Spider-Man’ Political Candidate Climbs A Building For Votes, ‘Daily Bugle’ Declares Him Threat And Menace

Gaurav Sharma, The 'Indian Spider-Man'

 

Like many Americans, I often find myself frustrated with our political system. For me, though, it's not really the two-party structure or campaign finance reform, it's that none of our major candidates ever dress up like Spider-Man and climb up buildings to ask for votes directly through a third-floor window. It is, I will admit, a pretty specific problem, but really, aren't all political beliefs?

What's interesting is that this is not a problem at all in India, as evidenced by Gaurav Sharma, an independent candidate running for the South Mumbai Constituency, who did exactly that, scaling a local apartment building in a bid to get voters on his side.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1 Recap, Episode 17: ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD112-12111

Agents of SHIELD has had a lot of chances. It's had guest stars and movie tie-ins. It's had extended hiatuses when it could have re-tooled. It's had heavily pushed event episodes that were meant to reinvigorate the show. But for sixteen episodes the show has failed to catch fire. Now, after the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the show has one more chance to prove itself.

SPOILER WARNING: This recap not only contains spoilers for tonight's Agents of SHIELD, it also contains spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. If you haven't seen the movie and you want to remain unspoiled, do not read on.

Marvel Superheroes Coming To ‘Disney Infinity’ In 2.0 Edition [Video]

Disney Infinity 2 teaser

I don't think I'm blowing anyone's mind here, but I'm pretty sure that if there's one thing superhero fans love, it's collecting tiny little plastic versions of their favorite characters. It is a universal truth of fandom, and apparently, the folks over at Disney Interactive Studios have finally realized this, and they're capitalizing by introducing Marvel superheroes into Disney Infinity 2.0, the seeming sequel to their smash hit video game that uses collectible figurines to unlock maps and other content.

As revealed in the new teaser trailer, Captain America (or at least his Mighty Shield) is leading the charge. Check it out below!

Man At Arms Recreates Blade’s Vampire-Killing Glaive [Video]

Blade's Glaive, by Man At Arms

With the exception of Wesley Snipes, David S. Goyer and Sticky Fingaz from Onyx, I'm willing to bet that I have spent more time thinking about the Blade movie franchise than any man alive. I mean, just that vertical suplex at the end of Blade II alone has taken up a considerable percentage of my thoughts over the past 12 years. And yet, it never occurred to me to request that Man At Arms, the series of videos featuring master swordsmith Tony Swatton re-creating famous pop culture weapons that was last seen building a real-life Pokémon, take a shot at Blade's glaives.

Fortunately for everyone who enjoys seeing fictional weapons stabbing real-life soda bottles, several other people took the initiative on that one, and the result is that the world now has three brand-new razor-sharp vampire killin' weapons. Check out a video to see the process (and some gratuitous stabbing) below!

Drew Goddard Named As Director Of ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Spinoff Movie ‘Sinister Six’

Sinister Six
Marvel Comics

Back in December, Sony Pictures announced that it was going full-force with its Spider-Man franchise, not just with a followup to the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie, but with Venom and Sinister Six movies to boot.

The directors for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Venom were already in place at the time of that announcement (Marc Webb is sticking with the main series and Alex Kurtzman will handle Venom), but Sinister Six's director wasn't yet confirmed. Now, it seems like an almost-done deal that screenwriter Drew Goddard, who directed The Cabin in the Woods and is also writing the new Netflix Daredevil series, will have the job.

New ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Clip Serves Up A Bit More Star-Lord [Video]

Guardians of the Galaxy Star-Lord Clip
Marvel Studios

If you've seen the trailer for the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie, you're likely already familiar with the prominently featured scene in which Chris Pratt's Star-Lord tiptoes up to an ancient-looking artifact with designs on stealing it in a manner reminiscent of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Now, Marvel Studios has released a slightly longer look at that scene in what you might call a clip or what kind of seems like a slightly different trailer cut. Whatever you'd call it, the video awaits your eyes.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Video Game ‘Kingpin’ Trailer Introduces Tons Of Non-Film Foes [Video]

Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game trailer

The release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is just around the corner, and if there's one thing we know about that movie, it's that there are a lot of villains involved. Electro, the Rhino, the Green Goblin, some weird-ass dancing baby -- they're all showing up to give the web-slinger some problems. But is that really enough bad guys?

The producers of the video game tie-in certainly don't think so. As revealed in the latest trailer for the upcoming Activision title, Spider-Man's going to be throwing webs and flying headscissors takedowns at all those foes, plus the Black Cat, Kraven the Hunter and the Kingpin. And as an added bonus, Activision and Beenox have made the Kingpin hilariously huge. Check out the trailer below!

The X-Men Episode Guide 3×18: ‘The Juggernaut Returns’

The X-Men Episode Guide 3x18: The Juggernaut Returns

The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series. This week, the Juggernaut returns and spends the entire episode in bed, much like I wish I was doing.
