    Posted Monday, December 9th, 2013 11:00 am GMT -4

    Things are really rolling with ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ (still not the official title).  Hot on the heels of the announcement that Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman and with Variety reporting that The Flash will make an appearance, comes even more news.  Reportedly Callan Mulvey (’300: Rise of an Empire’, ‘Zero Dark Thirty’) […]

    Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting’s winning partnership continues here in the second installment of their tough-as-nails spy thriller, set in early seventies London.  The lead character, Velvet Templeton has been framed as a murderer of her fellow spies and must go on the run.  Luckily, she’s secured a special stealth suit that allows her to […]

  • ‘Avengers Arena’ Writer Discusses His Heroes’ Next Step In ‘Avengers Undercover’

    Posted Sunday, December 8th, 2013 05:00 pm GMT -4

    Last week, one of the most talked about comics of 2013 came to an end as Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker’s teen hero death match series, ‘Avengers Arena’, arrived at it’s final issue. With their time on Murder World over, the survivors certainly have a lot on their minds, including the terrible things that Arcade […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Earth 2′ #18

    Posted Sunday, December 8th, 2013 03:00 pm GMT -4

    All hell has broken loose as Superman, who was believed to be dead, returns in the thrall of Darkseid.  While what remains of the World Army attempts to pull itself together, The Flash tries to distract the newly evil Man of Steel.  But… I mean it’s Superman.  On top of that, it’s kind of a […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ #9

    Posted Sunday, December 8th, 2013 11:30 am GMT -4

    Another week means another ‘Infinity’ tie-in and yet another issue that they don’t tell us what happened with Star-Lord and Thanos in the Cancerverse or how they got back. Sorry true believers, but my faith in this series is starting to wane as the great mystery keeps being teased without letting us know. I’ll give […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘The Fearless Defenders’ #12

    Posted Sunday, December 8th, 2013 11:00 am GMT -4

    I can’t believe it’s over so soon!  ‘The Fearless Defenders’ started off a little rocky, but the creators, writer Cullen Bunn and artist Will Sliney, eventually found their footing and this book has been pretty consistently great in the past few months. Here the team finally, officially comes together.  Misty points out that Valkyrie was […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘X-Men Legacy’ #21

    Posted Saturday, December 7th, 2013 09:00 pm GMT -4

    This might be the first issue in months where ‘X-Men Legacy’ wasn’t my favorite book of the month. Don’t worry, though, fellow fans of Xavier’s Legacy – the series was still my second favorite. Even with the return of the art, it couldn’t top my favorite this week. Honestly it’s only fallen to second place because of […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Superior Spider-Man Team-Up’ #7

    Posted Saturday, December 7th, 2013 05:00 pm GMT -4

    Over the course of ‘Superior Spider-Man Team-Up’ and from prior comics Doc Ock has been collecting his old partners in crime and trapping them. Why has he been imprisoning his old crew? Well, he wants to get the gang back together! Though instead of having the Sinister Six, Spidey wants to bring forth his own […]

  • Comic Review: ‘Trillium’ #5

    Posted Saturday, December 7th, 2013 01:00 pm GMT -4

    Last issue ended with the blowing up the temple, and it lands us in a topsy-turvey new world. And when I say topsy-turvey, I really do mean it. Half of the comic is upside down. So, for those of you who haven’t read it, let me give you a quick little bit of advice so […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Iron Man’ #19

    Posted Saturday, December 7th, 2013 09:00 am GMT -4

    I generally like it when there are new takes on classic characters as long as they remain true to the characters. While the current run of ‘Iron Man’ had Tony once again partially on the run from his problems in order to “get a new perspective”, it still felt like classic Tony. Only, it felt […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Amazing X-Men’ #2

    Posted Friday, December 6th, 2013 06:00 pm GMT -4

    In the famous tradition of not being able to keep their characters dead, the first issue of ‘Amazing X-Men‘ reintroduced Nightcrawler to our mutants! Well, he’s not exactly back to life quite yet (and there are no promises that he will return to the land of the living from this event) but we have been […]

  • ‘The Flash’ Casting Call Sheet Reveals One Not-Too-Surprising Cast Member

    Grant Gustin has made his debut as Barry Allen on ‘Arrow’ in the episode entitled ‘The Scientist’.  He will also appear in next week’s mid-season finale before segueing into a pilot for a new series starring his alter ego, ‘The Flash’.  Work is moving forward on this pilot and the latest casting call sheet reveals […]

  • Ben Affleck Regrets ‘Daredevil’ (Don’t We All?)

    Posted Friday, December 6th, 2013 03:00 pm GMT -4

    Well… Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman in ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ wasn’t exactly embraced by the internet.  The actor’s depiction of Daredevil in the disappointing 2003 comic book adaptation certainly factored into this judgement.  To his credit, Affleck is owning up to the negative film calling it “the only movie I actually regret.”  (REALLY?!  The only […]

  • Comic Review: ‘Star Trek: Khan’ #3

    Posted Friday, December 6th, 2013 11:00 am GMT -4

    We have arrived at issue #3, and let’s just say that my problems from the first two issues have not been resolved, but seeing as I have gone through them at length (see here and here), we’ll just continue on our merry way. The comic starts with Spock interrupting Khan’s story (is he a lawyer […]

  • What DC Hero Does Henry Cavill Want Brought Into The Cinematic Universe? The Answer May Surprise You!

    Posted Friday, December 6th, 2013 10:00 am GMT -4

    Now that Wonder Woman has been confirmed as appearing in ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ with rumors still swirling loudly that both The Flash and Nightwing will also appear in this movie, what about the rest of the DC Universe?  There were possibly vague references to both Green Lantern (or more specifically Star Sapphire) and Aquaman in […]
