A couple of months ago, we learned that Paramount, along with producers Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg, hired Akiva Goldsman to head up a new Transformers brain trust, giving Goldsman creative control over the future of the franchise. Goldsman has just put together the writers' room for the upcoming sequels and spinoffs, and it’s…interesting.
According to Deadline, Goldsman has wrangled The Walking Dead creator and Image Comics partner Robert Kirkman, Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Pacific Rim 2 writer Zak Penn and Jeff Pinkner, who’s written for Lost and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. That’s a bit of a mixed bag, but each writer has one thing in common (aside from being your average white dude): they’re all versed in large scale sci-fi.
You undoubtedly remember November 15, 2013, the day when the entire city of San Francisco rallied around Miles “Batkid” Scott, helping to make a little boy’s wish come true for just one day. The story of Miles’ magical, crime-fighting day has been made into a new documentary, Batkid Begins, which not only gives you a proper introduction to Miles and his family, but shows the ways his story touched the lives of people around the world.
We've been under a deluge of comic book movies for what seems like decades. The frequency at which our favorite characters like Spider-Man, Hellboy and the Hulk are appearing on the silver screen has increased tremendously since the early aughts, and so has the desire to take a part of these movies home with us.
Though the prop replica market has definitely seen a drastic increase in volume over the past few years, there's nothing quite like owning a piece of the real thing. We did some digging to see just what kind of comic book film memorabilia was currently setting the internet auction house aflame.
Captain America: Civil War continues to film outdoors in Atlanta, which is currently standing in for the fictional African nation of Wakanda, home to the Black Panther. We brought you a first look at Frank Grillo as Crossbones, the new villain, and today you can get a look at Crossbones and Captain America in a major fight scene, including some video from the set!
It’s been a couple of days since you saw new photos of Jared Leto’s version of Joker, which means you probably just now stopped laughing about it (until we see more pics from Suicide Squad, anyway). But here’s something to interest (and maybe frighten) you: special effects master Rick Baker has created his own rendering of Joker, one that is not only great, but kind of unnerving — you know, the way Joker should look. It’s too bad we might never see this version on the big screen.
So far, the lineup for Captain America: Civil War makes the film seem more like Avengers 2.5 than another installment in the Cap franchise — not that that’s a bad thing. The film features Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Falcon and so many more, including Chadwick Boseman, who will make his first big screen appearance as Black Panther. But how exactly does Marvel’s new hero fit into the upcoming battle between Cap and Iron Man? We might know. Kind of.
As producers, writers and directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are one hell of a team, taking ideas that seemed sort of ridiculous and delivering hugely entertaining and successful franchises…which is why it makes sense that every major studio wants to get in the Lord and Miller business. The duo are attached to develop The Flash solo movie for WB, as well as an animated Spider-Man film for Sony. That’s not news — what is news is Lord’s revelation that both projects will operate a bit independently from their larger franchises.
There have been rumors floating around about Lex Luthor’s role in Batman vs. Superman, but there’s been little confirmation about anything involving Jesse Eisenberg’s take on the character. So far, we pretty only know that this version of Luthor is still bald, thanks to the first official image of Eisenberg in character. That’s it, really. But a new rumor suggests something a little more interesting for Superman’s longtime nemesis.
Mad Max: Fury Road took a lot of people by surprise this weekend with just how good, how exciting, how beautiful, and how progressive it is, but those smart folks at Vertigo Comics seemed to know what was coming. Not only have they commissioned a quartet of prequel comics, starting this week with Nux And Immortan Joe; they also put together an art book full of wonderful tributes to the movie by some of the best artists in comics.
We've scoured the internet to pull together several of these amazing works for your enjoyment, as well as some Mondo Gallery tie-in art and the Tommy Lee Edwards covers to the upcoming comics.

In this episode, Kate recounts a recent journey that may be familiar to many of us, from an initial deep-seated skepticism to a profound kind of love for a one-armed woman with grease on her face.
