Director Marc Webb has been Tweeting photos from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 over the past few days. Most of them are fairly innocuous, but one in particular has fans speculating on a fan favorite character. Give it a look below, possible spoilers.
The third issue of Superior Spider-Man turns the tables on Otto Octavius as he must confront an old friend in the body of their greatest enemy. Writer Dan Slott and artist Ryan Stegman remain the creative team for the third straight issue of the new title. The new and supposedly Superior Spider-Man must team up with a doubtful Carlie Cooper in order to bring down one of old cohorts from his Sinister Six days: Adrian Toomes, the Vulture.
It has been a wild ride in the pages of Colder, the limited series from Dark Horse Comics. In the third issue, the crazy train is still chugging along. This five issue series, from writer Paul Tobin and artist Juan Ferreyra is all about insanity. With this issue things slow down a bit, but they do not get any less crazy.
There is something inherently mythic about the American South, something impossible to put a finger on that makes the monsters of myth seem more possible. Acclaimed fantasy author Caitlin R. Kiernan has teamed with artist Steve Lieber to bring one of her characters, Dancy Flammarion, to the comic-book format with Alabaster: Wolves, a five issue limited series from Dark Horse Comics initially published between April and August of 2012. Dancy is a teenaged albino, and she has made it her mission in life to eradicate all monsters, but what she encounters in a small South Carolina town will cause her to question whether or not everything she believes in is a lie, and it also might cost Dancy her life.
The long rumored film adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s Haunted has taken a big step towards production. The Fight Club author recently announced on his Twitter that the film has finally received financing and that further details will be coming soon. More on the film’s plot, as well as a couple of concerns about the adaptation after the jump.
Guardians of the Galaxy has gotten its first major casting announcement. After months of shortlists and speculation, one Chris Pratt has gotten the starring role as Star-Lord, the half-human/half-alien member of the team. Fans might know him from his role as a SEAL Team Six member in Zero Dark Thirty, or from his very unheroic role on Parks and Recreations.
In recent years, vampires have been “prettied up” by Hollywood and young-adult novels, and while that may be all well and good, vampires are traditionally something much darker, and much weirder. Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) and Chuck Hogan (Prince of Thieves) understand this. Their novel The Strain, the first of a trilogy, brings vampirism to New York City and sees a group of people struggling to keep the contagion from spreading. Del Toro and Hogan have teamed with Dark Horse to bring their work to the comic-book format with The Strain, written by David Lapham and drawn by Mike Huddleston.
Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will come back to theaters on July 26 in The Wolverine. The film, not a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, will be set in Japan, a decision based off of Wolverine, a mini-series in the 80’s created by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. That's a lot of Wolverines, but what does it mean for the film? Read on to get some nice story information.
Break Out the Keanu Whoa Faces, The New Release of 'Star Wars Omnibus - Infinites' Is Asking All the Tough Questions
If you'e anything like me, you've probably spent some time in your head, playing through alternate scenarios of your favorite movies. I enjoy asking the tough questions, you know, like what if Leonardo wasn't able to duck that cannonball in Turtles 3? It's fun to imagine how much one little detail could change the entire course of a story. And that's exactly what the Star Wars Omnibus – Infinites collection is doing here.
The first issue of Brian Wood and Carlos D'Anda's Star Wars was a hit. It quickly sold out multiple print runs, and the second issue of the series picks up just where the first issue left off, with Leia assembling her team, Luke honing his piloting abilities, Han and Chewbacca off on a secret mission, and Vader’s Star-Destroyer in the hands of a new enemy. Star Wars is published by Dark Horse Comics, and is set in the time period between the first and second (or the fourth and fifth, depending on whether you are or are not George Lucas) films.
