So I recently checked out the Wonder Woman movie and to my surprise it was pretty damn good, for a modern day superhero movie. I only really say this because the first time we saw Gal Gadot in the role was in the wretched Batman V Superman. Uggh I tried to erase that horror story from my memory.. BUT It seems to me that DC finally did it right and impressively releasing the, waaaaaay long overdue first fully female fronted superhero movie. Let’s face it, this was a big win and now I’m sure Marvel is thinking even more seriously about the future of the female fronted superhero flick. Sure they have Captain Marvel in the wings for 2019 but I’ve read recently that another female director is hoping she can score a job behind making a She-Hulk movie.
Yep Rachel Talalay who’s directed the likes of Tank Girl, Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, episodes of Supergirl, The Flash, Sherlock and most recently Doctor Who has expressed major interest in She-Hulk. She stated: “I have such a strong vision of what She-Hulk should be,” Talalay told Vice. “The difference between She-Hulk and Hulk is that she loved being She-Hulk. She was the Tank Girl of earlier days in terms of being able to say what she wanted, and when she became She-Hulk, it was like an opening of the door to freedom, to be the person that you wish you could be. That you’re stopped from being as a woman. And that’s the version of She-Hulk that I would love to embrace.” Continue reading
Been watching these cool little videos lately called “Avengers Assemble!”. They are pretty damn fun, well done and they’ve got a ton of them up. They take on modern problems like Healthcare, jobs, romance, oil spills, car pooling, don’t ask don’t tell, just to name a few.
They have a lot of different Marvel characters that show up in the episodes and one even stars Stan Lee! Check it out as Ms. Marvel tries to land a job, proving it ain’t easy to find one these days! Make sure to watch after the credits…
oh yeah even superheroes are having a tough time with health care these days!
I was talking with some friends the other night about something I think is really interesting and kinda depressing in the world of comics books. The topic of realism in super hero comic books. I am not talking realism in a way of superhuman beings roaming the earth, having crazy powers and fighting crime. Nope, you see that’s all more than fine with me. I am rather talking about the fact that it seems almost every super hero or super team seems to have a full cast of beautifully sculpted super models in their ranks. Even worse is the fact that almost every artist draws everyones faces the same-I mean most of the time Bruce Banner is drawn with same face as Reed Richards, Captain America or Cyclops! Kind of a cookie cutter “safe” bland drawing of men or women in comic books. See this has been happening since the beginning of comic books and to be quite honest it’s kinda lame.
I personally would LOVE to see a little more depth and realism in my comic books. Why does every woman have to have the same perfect body?? Doesn’t The Invisible Woman ever eat too many donuts when nobody is looking? Continue reading
Well here you have the return of Arnold, well kinda…here’s the first trailer from his new cartoon series which he created with Stan Lee. It’s called the Governator and yeah it looks pretty god damn lame….check this out…
This weeks cover is one of my faves- Hulk number 5 marks the very first of appearance of Tyrannus one of the Hulk’s most under rated villains! This classic cover beautifully drawn by Jack Kirby shows exactly why he is and will forever be known as quite possibly the best comic book artist of all time. It just doesn’t get any better than this folks!
I just came across this cool little cartoon series “The Greatest Fan Film of All Time” today and found it to be QUITE amusing! It has alot of neat appearances by some pretty awesome characters and best of all it’s pretty damn humorous! I love the fact to that they include Vindicator of Alpha flight into the mix too as well as The Toxic Avenger as he get’s drunk with Tony Stark. Check out the Stan Lee appearance too near the end-classic! I just watched the first two episodes and it’s pretty cool. Now I’m gonna check out the last three to see how this turns out. check out the first two here:
