      During the first season of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, Jamie Alexander reprised her role as Lady Sif from ‘Thor’ and ‘Thor: The Dark World’ in one of the best episodes of the series to date that saw the mighty Asgardian warrior team up with Agent Coulson and his team to track down the sorceress Lorelei.

    If you were under the impression that the legend of Harry Potter was over, then you are sorely mistaken. Though the books may be finished and the movies have all wrapped, we’re constantly learning more the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling. Not only is there a new film called ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to […]

    Back when Marvel Studios announced their epic Phase Three schedule at the El Capitan Theatre, among the surprises were a few unexpected films like ‘Captain Marvel’, ‘Inhumans’, and ‘Captain America: Civil War’. But a few long-rumored projects were revealed as well including Scott Derrickson’s ‘Doctor Strange’ and ‘Black Panther’. The event even saw the introduction […]

    There are a few things in life that you never think you’ll see. As a wrestling fan, I never thought that I’d see the Ultimate Warrior reconcile with Vince McMahon and enter the WWE Hall of Fame. ‘Star Wars’ fans probably didn’t think they’d see  another movie after the prequels, let alone a whole other […]

    Professional wrestlers have always been considered by some people to be real life superheroes. With their larger than life personalities, brightly colored costumes, and tremendous feats of strength – it’s not really a farfetched idea to buy into. And fans come in all ages, shapes, sizes, and walks of life. But recently a certain fan […]

  • Brian Michael Bendis Re-Signs Exclusively With Marvel & Leaves ‘X-Men’

    For as long as I can remember, Brian Michael Bendis has been one of the most hard-working people in comics. After two of the longest runs in American comic book history on ‘Avengers’ and ‘Ultimate Spider-Man,’ the legendary writer moved on to be the franchise player for ‘X-Men’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ in 2012.

    Before Ryan Reynolds slips back into the Marvel Universe as the Merc with a Mouth in ‘Deadpool,’ he takes on a whole different sort of killer in ‘The Voices.’ From ‘Persepolis’ and ‘Chicken With Plums’ director Marjane Satrapi, this Sundance Film Festival darling follows a bathtub factory worker from a small town named Jerry that […]

    After a brief teaser was released earlier this week, True Believers were able to lay their eyes on the first trailer for Marvel Studios and Netflix’s ‘Daredevil.’ Debuting in April, the Man Without Fear will star in the first of five series on the popular streaming service featuring the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  • Movie Review: ‘Seventh Son’

    When I was younger, I remember live action medieval fantasy films being much awesome. Of course back then I was watching ‘The Dark Crystal,’ ‘Labyrinth,’ ‘The Neverending Story,’ and ‘The Princess Bride’ for the first time, but movies that actually came out during my childhood like ‘Lord of the Rings,’ the first few Harry Potter […]

  • TV Review: ‘Agent Carter: The Iron Ceiling’

    Posted Thursday, February 5th, 2015 02:19 pm GMT -4
    by

    After starting off strong, I felt like ‘Agent Carter’ was progressing much slower than a limited series should. Since we only get eight episodes, one would assume that Leviathan would be more present in the proceedings, but that just wasn’t the case. However, with all the criticism that I’ve had for the show so far, […]

  • Will We See ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Characters In ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’?

    Posted Thursday, February 5th, 2015 12:28 pm GMT -4
    by

    Back in 2013, writer and director Joss Whedon revealed that Phil Coulson probably wouldn’t appear in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ because at the time he already had “too much movie.” With everything that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are set to endure while facing the raging robot played by James Spader, that’s quite understandable. Plus, we’ll be […]

    Fans have been demanding a Black Widow movie starring Scarlett Johansson since the character made her first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though that film may not be in the cards at the moment, Natasha Romanoff has certainly made her presence felt in ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’ Plus, we’ve been assured […]

    After it’s release in late 2013, ‘Frozen’ became a bona fide hit that racked up awards, spawned theme park attractions, and provided songs that have probably not left your head since you first heard them a million plays ago. But the one thing that we have yet to see is a sequel. Sure, there have been […]

    Earlier this week, ‘Jurassic World’ launched a pretty epic viral marketing website featuring “live” park cams and a ton more, but they weren’t the only ones to launch a new site following an ad shown during last Sunday’s Super Bowl. Walt Disney Pictures has done the same thing for ‘Tomorrowland’ and their site has some […]

    Last month, we learned that Marvel Studios’ Creative Research Director Will Corona Pilgrim would be penning a prelude comic series for ‘Ant-Man’ prior to the film’s release later this year. This adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would find Dr. Hank Pym suiting up in his size-shifting superhero suit and teaming with Peggy Carter during […]
