But what will Marvel and Sony’s newly rebooted Spider-Man have when he makes his debut in Captain America: Civil War?

Everyone loves superhero movies…at least right now. But, if there’s one thing 2015 has shown us is that there is success to be had, and lots of it, without them. Universal Pictures is having a record-setting year without a single superhero movie on their roster. It’s true that superhero movies have been incredibly successful, but is that sustainable?

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.

Bow to the Queen: Why Can’t the ‘X-Men’ Movies Capture the Majesty of Storm?

storm-feat

Goddess. Windrider. Queen. Leader. Storm has worn multiple hats during her existence; roles that have aided in her evolution as one of comics’ most significant and abiding heroes. Yet although Storm’s pop cultural significance is great, her characterization has seen glaring inconsistencies from comic book to screen. Fans of the '90s cartoons remember a majestic leader whose long winded monologues became part of her appeal, but fans of the films were subjected to an unimposing and rather useless version of the character.
