What a way to wake up this morning – seeing Twitter ablaze with links to the trailer for the Dr. Strange film! I’ve been looking forward to this since it was a announced as I’ve always been a fan of these slightly offbeat comics, where the focus is on other realities, rather than heroes knocking […]

An epic post from Comic Book Resources, outlining all the various teams the X-Men (and spin-offs) have constituted since the 60s. I’m not that old, but I remember from number 3 onwards. Such happy memories of hours spent reading x-books (even when they were so god-awful back in the 90s) and trying to figure out […]

I know what you’re thinking. Another Spider-Man relaunch? Just how complicated can a Spider-Man story get? He swings between buildings and delivers snappy one-liners while smacking the bejaysus out of costumed criminals.  Before you get too cynical and wonder why the need for a new #1 issue, let me explain that this is more fundamental […]

So, Ant-Man was excellent. Like a cross between Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers. Fun, action-packed and exciting. Deep and meaningful cinema it is not. But do you go to see a Marvel flick to explore the meaning of life, or to watch the characters you grew up reading about, up on a big screen, […]

After two distinctly average attempts to put the Fantastic Four on the big screen, they’re back for one more try. And this trailer indicates they’re not going for the shiny shiny happy tone of the last couple – it has a pretty dark tone to it. Hard to tell at this point – with such […]

Oooh. Marvel have released a sneak peek of the new Agent Carter show that starts January. The same Agent Carter as featured in the Captain America films, who helped to found S.H.I.E.L.D. All set in the post-war era, this looks sweet. Just a few weeks until it airs in the US. Hope it doesn’t take […]

I really quite like this theory/rumour/potential spoiler. If you haven’t seen the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., look away now. Could they be about to introduce some Inhumans into the story? I hope so. I had Skye marked as either a) Jessica Drew, b) Bobbie Morse or c) Carol Danvers from the end of the […]

Two nights ago, I finished what is now my favourite book of the year (so far!): Michael Chabon’s “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay”. I read his “The Yiddish Policemen’s Union” earlier this year and loved every page. “…Kavalier and Clay” was even better. Set before the USA decided to join in the fun […]

Marvel just announced a whole heap of magnificent superhero movies, all the way up to 2019. If that sentence doesn’t fill you with glee, keep on walking and find a blog about trainspotting or something. I caught the end of the liveblog, but in just a few minutes, they announced the following: Captain America: Civil […]
