I just got done reading The Uncanny Avengers #1, one of the most hyped comics books in quite some time. Marvel has even reported over 300,000 issues already sold. So was it as amazing as everyone hoped? I think so. Now granted this is issue #1 only, but in the aftermath of AVX which I will admit I didn’t read it all ( hey comic books are expensive and to be honest I can’t afford to read all the tiles I’d like to every week for 4 bucks a pop) this issue is a fantastic start to something that could be really awesome. It’s first off beautifully drawn by John Cassaday, while reading it, it brought back great memories of Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-men run second Remender does a great job with grabbing you in with some heartfelt story telling in the wake of Professor X’s death.
What we have here in issue one is basically Captain America asking Havok to lead a special Avengers team, Wolverine telling the world they failed Chuck Xavier and his dream, an attack by Avalanche on the city in the name of mutant revenge on humans and lastly Rogue confronting The Scarlet Witch at Xavier’s grave. I thought it was a great scene in where we get to really understand where both of these characters are coming from dealing with the recent “death”.
Lastly we get a new(?) gang of villains who attack. We have ‘The Goat Faced Girl” who’s creepy enough along with, an insect man, a water controlling octopus woman, a winged demon woman and a snapping turtle man guy. So yeah not sure what I think about these dudes yet…we’ll see. Finally we get a look at the “major villain” which is really not much of a surprise but steals something for him self which will be important I’d imagine to the X-men. A really impressive first issue overall, with wonderful artwork and an exciting story coming together it will be interesting to see how long The Avengers remain Uncanny…..
Check out this brand new trailer for the upcoming Captain America movie that was released today! So far it’s still looking to me as this one is set to be the best Marvel movie yet! Still however no hint of the Invaders who are rumored to be fighting along side Cap as well-I’ve got my fingers crossed though still. Also no images of Bucky in uniform-they better not flake! Anyway check it out-it’s looking damn good..
Hey folks there’s a pic of Bucky floating around from the upcoming Cap movie and well it looks kinda like a terrible photo! But at least it confirms that Cap’s rad side kick is definitely in the movie! I for one would have loved to have seen the black eye mask- in fact if he doesn’t wear the damn eye mask I’m gonna blow a gasket right there in the theater!! Bucky is not only one of the coolest characters ever but he also becomes the Winter Soldier-who totally kicks ass and then becomes Captain America himself!! So they better not fuck this up!! Now all I need is some confirmation on the Invaders-visual proof-and if Union Jack ain’t part of the team I’m gonna have a serious hemi!!!
Ok first off sorry if it suddenly seems as if I have been slackin’ on the blogging lately! I have been working like crazy ever since I got back from my cross country road trip! So anyway I just found out about this today so pardon me if for some reason this is old news to you. It seems that there has been a new villain announced for the new upcoming Captain America movie, Arnim Zola!!!
I will say this is fantastic news as I wasn’t sure if it’d only be the Red Skull cap was up against. So today I find out that little guy Toby Jones (Infamous, Harry Potter) will be portraying the legenday villain! Continue reading
I have been saying for quite a while here that I’ve been hoping for some real concrete news on the Captain America movie and finally some has arrived! This is what I have heard so far. First, as we all guessed it’s been confirmed, according to Ain’t it Cool News that The Red Skull will indeed be the villain (duh) and I assume Hitler will be chumming around with him too. Secondly they’re supposedly they are going to make Cap’s costume a bit more like it was in the earlier days I’m guessing like something between the The Ultimates 40’s Cap and current days non Bucky Cap.
Third and most exciting of the news is that Captain America will be joined on the big screen by The Invaders!! Continue reading
