The Final “Avengers: Infinity War Trailer” Is Out, But….

Unless you live under a rock, or ya know…had other responsibilities, you’ve probably heard and/or seen the new Avengers: Infinity War trailer that dropped today.

As if there were any doubt, it looks amazing. For all it’s wonderful inclusions, I’d like to know what you all think!

An even better question (please leave your answer in the comments below) is, what character would you like to see introduced in this movie that has not yet been in a MCU film?

My vote? Well, I’m going to cheat here because it’s less of a singular character and more of a group. How much would you all freak out if, say, in the post credits sequence, a certain ship materializes out of a certain negative zone with a certain family of Four…. OR…better yet, a slow zoom to Thor, laying unconscious on the ground, as we close in on his face, what looks like a rocky hand pinches his nose and leans in over his face, Thor comes to, flailing then as lucidity comes and his vision starts to correct, he says softly, “Korg? What has happened to you?” to which our ORANGE rocky friend replies, “Korg? That’s the last time I try mouth-ta-mouth resuscitation with a guy that calls himself a thunder god…” The camera zooms back out as we see the rest of the FANTASTIC FOUR come into view!!!



Franchise Wars

With the release of the Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropping earlier this week, and the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi due out in a few days, nerd-dom is at its highest of levels right now. And while I cannot wait to see The Last Jedi in theaters on opening day, I’ve come to realize that I am more excited for Avengers than I am for Star Wars.

To some, this may seem sacrilegious. The franchises aren’t even in the same category or genre. How can they even be compared?

Can He Swing From A Thread? SPOILERS

fb_banner___captain_america__civil_war_by_whitefeatheredcrow-d8lme83……I can’t stop smiling.

I am more than thankful right now for the infamous Sony leaks that ultimately lead to them conceding to Marvel and lending them the rights to everyone’s favorite webhead. Regardless, I have been nervous as all heck since the announcement that Continue reading


NEW! “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” Is Here!

catws bannerToday Marvel Studios has released the first trailer for the upcoming Captain America sequel, The Winter Soldier.

For those “in the know” the Winter Soldier in the comics was one of the most exciting story lines of the franchise and the character remains one of the most prominent and complex characters to come out of the series.  For those who don’t know the character, I’ll save the spoilers this time around. The one thing I will say is, so far, this movie looks rather different in tone from what we’ve experienced thus far and I’m excited!!

The Winter Soldier first appeared in 2005 during Captain America Vol.5 Issue #1 during the start of the 5-part “Out of Time” story arc.  To say anything more would be to spoil the fun of the character’s reveal, so I’ll just leave you with this exciting new trailer. Keep a look out for a glimpse at the Falcon with full wing spread!!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier premieres in theaters on April 4th, 2014


‘Avengers Assemble’ trailer has just dropped!


Here’s the trailer for the new Avengers cartoon on Disney XD. I liked the previous series, kind of sad they cancelled it. The design and appearance here doesn’t seem too different, but I’m not sure I like it as much, the odd, off proportions look a little too “kiddy”(?), like they’ve drawn action figures rather than comic book characters, then again, I didn’t think I’d like the previous cartoon either! I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see! What do you think?

Comic Book Covers 11/28/2012

There’s a bunch of stuff happening in comics this week.  On the Marvel side we have another new Marvel NOW! book in Hickman’s FF #1.  We also see the end of Brian Michael Bendis’ many years long run on the Avengers with New Avengers #34.  Sad to see him go, but it’s in great hands with Hickman.  For DC we get the first part of the big Aquaman / Justice League crossover: “Throne of Atlantis”.  It may be hard to believe but with Geoff Johns at the helm Aquaman has been fantastic.  Before Watchman also returns this week with Ozymandias and Silk Spectre.  Lots of great covers this week, here’s a few of them.

Batman Incorporated #5

Comic Book Covers 10/24/2012

This week in comics saw the “final” issues of quite a few Marvel books including Captain America, Fantastic Four, and Invincible Iron Man.  The final is in quotes because the books will be back next month with new creators as #1 issues.  This did lead to some nice variants being released though, especially the two collage ones on this list.  Continue reading

A few of my favorites from the 09/12/2012 week.

Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #0

Cover by Alberto Ponticelli

To be quite honest, I didn’t think any DC books would be making this list this month, because I’m not such a fan of the 0 issue cover styles.  They’re all essentially the same, just the main character jumping out at you.  It doesn’t really give the artist too much to work with.  This one I really liked though, it’s an awesome shot of Frank getting ready to mess someone’s day up really badly.

X-Men Legacy #273

Cover by Mark Brooks

This cover is so good, it’s essentially Rogue riding Battle Cat.  That’s really all the explanation needed for it being up here.

Captain America & Black Widow #636

Cover by Francesco Francavilla

Francesco Francavilla kicks butts.  His work on Black Panther: Man Without Fear was one of the main draws for that book.  Combine that with the fact that Captain America is my favorite hero and this one makes the list.
