I think it's safe to say that Spider-Man has been through some pretty weird stuff in his time, right? I mean, that's a fifty-year saga that started with a radioactive spider-bite that gave him limited psychic powers and super-strength that he immediately used to try to find fame as a professional wrestler, and the fine folks over at Marvel Comics have somehow managed to top that for weirdness time and time again. Heck, right now, Spider-Man comics are in the midst of a supervillainous Freaky Friday story that has been running for over a year. That should tell you something.
But for my money, the absolute craziest and most hilarious Spider-Man story in years isn't the one you'll find in the comic shops on Wednesday. It's the one that's happening right now in TheAmazing Spider-Man newspaper strip, by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber, Alex Saviuk and Joe Sinnott.
Following last week's absolutely unforgettable, star-studded and perhaps even scandalous100-episode spectacular, ComicsAlliance begins a new era of the best and longest running podcast covering comic book entertainment news.
Recorded on Friday, this episode features Senior Editors Andy Khouri and Caleb Goellner alongside writers Chris Sims and Andrew Wheeler for a deep and intense discussion of the most crucial topics affecting the comic book industry. Specifically, who was cast in another Fantastic Four movie; what people think about another superhero movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, that they never thought they'd like anyway; the 30th anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; and why RoboCop Vs. Terminator is awesome.
The trailer for the new Godzilla movie is a really tense little film on its own, offering up only glimpses of the titular monster while Bryan Cranston and various other humans -- such as Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen who are playing Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver and Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, respectively, in Avengers: Age of Ultron -- lose their collective minds. It's gripping.
While it mostly consists of familiar trailer footage until about the 1:30 mark, Sony's new The Amazing Spider-Man 2 does deliver on its 3-minute "Rise of Electro" title thereafter. You can see a very blue Jamie Foxx tear up Times Square after the jump.
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 animatedseries. This week, we finally tackle one of the cornerstones of the X-Men as we enter the Dark Phoenix saga!
Marvel Studios has released the first one-sheet poster for Guardians of the Galaxy, invoking imagery of the pulp sci-fi era with a shot of the titular heroes set against a painted otherworldly vista. The accompanying tagline speaks to the film's tone, which the poster and trailer both indicate walks the line between pure adventure and absurd comedy, while the rest of the text tells the observer, "Hey, we know you've no f***ing idea who these characters are, but we made these other movies you like so just trust us."
The likely cast of next year's rebooted Fantastic Four movie from 20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank was revealed to the world last night, causing the comics internet to crack in half this morning. (It cracks in half all the time, of course. I think it may actually come in two parts.)
Miles Teller is our Reed Richards. Kate Mara is our Sue Storm. Michael B. Jordan is our Johnny Storm. Jamie Bell is our Ben Grimm. It's a weird and controversial cast -- but do fans have cause for concern?
In a daring move, Sony Pictures has opted to release new information about one of the villains in TheAmazing Spider-Man 2 rather than announce that a new one will be appearing. The bad guy in the spotlight? The Green Goblin, who appears unmasked in a new still the studio released to Total Film.
Though his identity may not be much of a surprise to comics fans, it does buck comic book tradition a bit. See for yourself who it is (if you don't mind the spoiler) after the jump.
