It reveals the star-studded cast (which includes Mads Mikkelsen, previously reported only as being in talks) and the crew (which is made up almost entirely of Marvel vets). It also gives us the first official Doctor Strange synopsis. Get all the latest officially confirmed Doctor Strange details after the jump.  Read More »

thor 3 australia

The very title of Thor: Ragnarok promises doom, death, and destruction. But Chris Hemsworth hopes there’s some room for levity in there as well. In a recent interview, the Marvel actor suggested the next Thor movie could stand to inject some more “smart wit” and “unexpected humor” a la Guardians of the Galaxy. And it kind of seems like Marvel agrees, seeing as they’ve hired What We Do in the ShadowsTaika Waititi to direct.  Read More »

jessica jones vs alias

Jessica Jones, Marvel Studios‘ second outing into the world of streaming television, is a triumph. More consistently paced than Daredevil and more confidently produced than Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it’s easily the best small-screen Marvel story yet. Not bad for a character the average non-geek knows nothing about.

Although she has since become a major player in the larger Marvel comic book universe, the character of Jessica Jones originated in the pages of Alias, a wonderful 28-issue series from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos. The basic template is the same: Jessica was a superhero, bad stuff happened, and now she’s private investigator. Alias was a Marvel “Max” title, an offshoot that publishes frequently non-canonical stories starring Marvel characters for adult readers, but it has been absorbed into the larger Marvel world. The events of the series are now canon, by and large, and Jessica Jones is one of the best and most vital new Marvel characters of the past two decades.

While Jessica Jones borrows the set-up from Alias, much changed on the road to Netflix. The comic’s climactic arc became the show’s first season. Characters were radically changed, while others were dropped altogether. The differences between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Marvel comics universe demanded modifications in tone and story. In the interest of pure, geeky curiosity, I spent the week before the premiere of Jessica Jones revisiting Alias, and the weekend of its release watching all 13 episodes for one reason only: to compare the two, and see where they connect and diverge.

‘Agent Carter’ Season 2 Teaser: Peggy Heads West

Agent Carter

After spending much of Agent Carter Season 1 adjusting to life after World War II — and after Steve Rogers — Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) is off to a fresh start in the first teaser for Season 2. The next run of episodes sends her across the country to glamorous Hollywood, where she’ll tangle with new foes and, by the looks of it, a new love. But she’s got some old friends in tow as well, including (much to his chagrin) Edwin Jarvis, played by James D’Arcy. Watch the first Agent Carter Season 2 teaser after the jump. Read More »
