The Grand Halls of Asgard!

    Thank Odin! SuperheroHype has shown our grand halls! Also of note, Loki has horns! This is very good. I was a little worried the aesthetic for this movie would be a little more alien than Asgardian, but I have been proven wrong! That set is absolutely gorgeous too,

The Blackest Night Approaches…

It appears to be a week of not-exactly-what-we’d-hoped-for images from upcoming comic films. The latest cover of Entertainment Weekly features the first image of Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern in the upcoming film.  As many of us know, the production chose to portray the GL uniform as having an

Odin or Oh-No?

Marvel gave us our first look at the Asgardian royal family today. It also gave me my first rumble of doubt in this movie. Something about this image screams “uh-oh”. I can’t decide if it’s the silly gold eye patch or the bland, lifeless environment they are in. If those

A New Face Under Spidey’s Mask

The sound of people scratching their heads is deafening.   Relatively unknown actor, Andrew Garfield has been cast as Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the way-too-soon reboot of the money-printing Marvel Comics film franchise.  The most common question to be asked since the announcement has been, “Who?”  Born in LA and raised

Captain America!

io9 has shown us  the concept art for Captain America’s costume and I couldn’t be happier! I was really wondering how they were going to pull this off. Cap’s classic costume is so iconic and yet kind of silly. It looks like they took the Ultimate’s style (which was pretty

Review: Secret Avengers #1

I wasn’t even going to buy this book. The team seemed cool, but I figured one Avengers book would be enough for me. This was all until I read an interview on io9 with Ed Brubaker, the writer for Secret Avengers. In the interview, Brubaker described a pulpy super spy

Review: Thor #610

Thor #610 brings us the fight I have been waiting for since the robot clone of Thor (Ragnarok) first came on the scene in Civil War: Thor vs. Ragnarok. This book is also Kieron Gillen’s final issue before Matt Fraction takes over next month. Gillen really wanted to go out

Review: Invincible Iron Man #26

In Invincible Iron Man #26, Matt Fraction continues to examine Tony Stark while he rebuilds his life, company, and reputation. This is more of a filler issue. Nothing earth shattering happens; there aren’t any great revelations, but it still is a wonderful issue. We get to learn a lot about

Review: Avengers #1

After nearly a decade of turmoil The Avengers are back to normal, mostly.  The big three of Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America are back except Bucky Barnes is now the man behind the shield. Add Spider-Man, Wolverine, Spider-Woman, and Hawkeye and you’ve got a hell of a team. I’m

Back in Bat

Rule #1: No one stays dead in comics. Rule #2: The Hulk always has pants on.  But I’m getting ahead of myself… It wasn’t a huge surprise.  If you had the misfortune of reading Final Crisis, you know that Batman was presumed dead by the inhabitants of the DC universe,
