Hollywood can't get enough of superhero universes right now.
Marvel's got its Avengers movie universe at Disney. The X-Men and the Fantastic Four are going to have one at 20th Century Fox very soon. DC is in the midst of building one at Warner Bros. And now, Sony is going to build one around Spider-Man, with movies focused on bad guys. Namely, Venom and the Sinister Six.
I didn't hate Spider-Man 3 as much as a lot of people -- maybe because I've been told by at least one drunk dude that I kind of remind them of "That '70sssshow *hic, guyyy" -- but like most comic fans, I definitely don't feel like Venom has gotten his full due in live action. Leave it to Punisher fan film "Dirty Laundry" phenom Adi Shankar, along with Joe Lynch to perhaps unsurprisingly blow all of our minds with their new “Truth in Journalism” short, which follows True Blood's Ryan Kwanten as hardboiled New York City journalist Eddie Brock in a mock French documentary. It's 17:08 of everything you want but will probably never see in any of The Amazing Spider-Man films, plus a brilliant surprise that just might kill you dead.
After achieving a second season on Disney XD, the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series is getting its action figure due from Hasbro with a number of toy lines spanning multiple scales. There's a 3.75" line with "flex and fire" launching features, a core 6" action figure line with more articulated sculpts and in
The first thing you'll likely notice about the new Thunderbolts #1 from writer Daniel Way and artist Steve Dillon is that it is a violent comic. It's also not necessarily the comic you were expecting. It's fair to say that this ver
Future Thunderbolt Flash Thompson is suiting up as Venom in the conflicted hero's first action figure form Diamond Select Toys Marvel Select line. The current Tony Moore-designed symbiote-wearer, along with Marc Silvestri's Savage-style Hulk, both sport new Jean St. Jean action figure s
How can you recreate the massive movie universe of The Avengersmovie when you only have the rights to one comic? If you're Sony Pictures and rumors are to be believed, you decide to spin that one comic out into multiple movies - starting with this summer's TheAmazing Spider-Man and continuing, maybe, with a Venom solo movie.Talking to Hollywood.com, TheAmazing Spider-Man producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach hinted that Sony may be
When I was a kid, I had a paperback called The Very Best of Spider-Man that I read until the binding wore out. Looking back, I might take a slight issue with that title, but it really was a pretty great selection of stories that had a huge impact on making me a fan of the character: "Whatever Happened to Crusher Hogan" is still a favorite to this day, the heartstring-tugging "The Kid Who Collected Spider-Man," and, probably most importantly, "The Final Chapter" from Amazing Spider-Man #33, which still ranks as the single best comic Marvel ever published.
One of the most important themes in superhero comics is "control." Spider-Man works to use his powers responsibly, the X-Men train to master their abilities to protect a world that hates and fears them and Bruce Banner works to help those in need while constantly suppressing the Hulk within
