    We previously reported that Fox had ordered a show called ‘Gotham’ straight-to-series, bypassing the pilot process.  The show would focus on Lt. James Gordon of the Gotham City police department as he solves crimes in the twisted, corrupt metropolis and, possibly, his ascension to eventually become commissioner, should the show last that long. Now comes word that the first […]

    The full trailer for the highly anticipated ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ will premiere on December 5th, but in the meantime, you can check out three teasers for the movie.  These trailers are obviously meant for the Spanish speaking market, as the text is all in that language, but there’s no dialogue, so there’s not much […]

    Last week, we saw the end the epic crossover event from Jonathan Hickman called ‘Infinity’, which (as clichéd as this sounds) changed the face of the Marvel Universe as we know it. Many things happened as a result of Thanos’ invasion of Earth during that story, but one of the biggest things had to be […]

    We already knew that ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ featured two major villains, Electro (Jaime Foxx) and The Rhino (Paul Giamatti).  Then days ago, a leaked storyboard indicated that another villain would make at least a brief appearance.  (SPOILERS!)  But could yet ANOTHER villain also pop up?!  Is there even enough time for Spider-Man to make […]

    We enter this issue of ‘Wolverine and the X-Men’ with Wolverine welcoming some new students to the class right after ‘Battle of the Atom’ is letting off.

    About a year ago, a brand new book called ‘Avengers Arena’ from Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker that sounded like Marvel’s version of ‘The Hunger Games’/’Battle Royale’ debuted to mix feelings. But as the book progressed and the audience explored Murder World, fans began to rally behind it despite the promise of all our favorite […]

    When Disney acquired Lucasfilm and Marvel Comics, fans speculated that it was merely time before the super studio integrated elements from these franchises into its theme parks, namely Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, and Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.  (I have a friend who was secretly working on a stand-alone Marvel theme park, which was […]

    “All Out War” carries on here, after Holly “threw herself on a grenade” taking Rick’s place in driving their truck through Negan’s fence, allowing the “roamers” in.  Negan mistakenly takes Holly for Andrea, despite her protests, but she remains tough despite his interrogation.  But her mission proved successful as Negan and his followers soon find […]

    ‘Wolverine And The X-Men’ is a book that follows both Logan and the students in his class. In this ‘Infinity’ tie-in the focus is on one student. Most of the rest of his class were involved with the pretty underwhelming ‘Infinity: The Hunt’ event. Who else does that leave? Well a certain student who is […]

  • Accoding To Alan Moore, Adults Who Like Superhero Movies Are “Emotionally Subnormal”

    Posted Saturday, November 30th, 2013 01:00 pm GMT -4

    For a creator whose work has often involved superheroes in the past, Alan Moore seems to be pretty opinionated on adults who enjoy the genre. In the 80s he was responsible for three of the most well known superhero tales of all time including ‘The Killing Joke‘, ‘Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow’, and […]
