John Wick Comic Book Cover Banner

John Wick is rapidly expanding from the cult action movie that first splashed onto the scene in 2014. First John Wick: Chapter 2 introduced a sprawling international network of assassins whose world is infinitely more complex than we could have dreamed.

Then a TV show was announced which is set to explore that world, with star Keanu Reeves set to make a cameo. Now, a comic book series will be released in September exploring the origins of the great, mythic John Wick himself, written by acclaimed Planet Hulk writer Greg Pak and drawn with stylish gusto by Giovanni Valletta.

Batman Mask of the Phantasm Blu-ray

Following the release of Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989 and the sequel Batman Returns in 1992, Warner Bros. Pictures tried their hand at bringing the animated version of The Dark Knight to theaters with Batman: Mask of the Phantasm on Christmas Day in 1993.

As a continuation of Batman: The Animated Series, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year like Batman Returns, the animated film didn’t spark much interest at the box office, pulling in only $5.6 million in its entire domestic run. Still, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm has become a favorite among Batman fans, especially with all the love that they have for the animated series that inspired it.

For years, fans have wanted to get their hands on Batman: Mask of the Phantasm in high definition, but it hadn’t been made available. That will change later this year though as Warner Archive has just announced the animated movie will be releases on Blu-ray this summer.

Spider-Man Homecoming Credits Scene

It’s a foregone conclusion that a Marvel Studios movie is going to have some kind of scene that happens during or after the credits. Sometimes it’s even both, as in the case of Guardians of the Galaxy, and this summer’s sequel to the cosmic Marvel movie even upped the ante by having a record five scenes scattered throughout the credits. Now it appears Marvel’s summer collaboration with Sony Pictures will follow suit.

At Sydney’s Supanova Comic-Con, director Jon Watts appeared via Skype and said there would be at least one Spider-Man: Homecoming credits scene “worth sticking around for,” but it seems like there may be more than one for audiences to see. Find out more below. Read More »

The roster for Avengers: Infinity War seems to get bigger with every news item that comes out of the Marvel film set, but it seems like we can’t even fathom how large it actually is.

Infinity War star and Black Widow herself, Scarlett Johansson, gave us confirmation of just how many characters are actually in the penultimate Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, which has been 10 years and 15 films in the making. Hint: There are a lot.

Sphero Spider-Man

Ever since Sphero made a splash with the interactive BB-8 droid toy that arrived before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters, they’ve become a household name in cool, albeit pricey, electronic toys. Just recently they unveiled their interactive Lightning McQueen remote controlled car, and now they have a Spider-Man: Homecoming inspired gizmo too.

The Sphero Spider-Man toy is an interactive little gadget that talks to you and reacts to your voice commands. You can ask Spidey to tell you a joke, ask trivia questions, give you the time, guard your room, wake you up and more. Beyond those basic capabilities, Spidey will also go on missions, play games, tell stories and do other things that will change how he interacts with you as time goes on.

Deadpool 2 Set Photo

It looks production is underway on Deadpool 2, at least if Ryan Reynolds‘ recent post on Twitter is to be believed.

Over the weekend, the actor who spent roughly a decade trying to get the R-rated comic book comedy off the ground posted a new photo of himself donning the signature red suit worn by the Merc with a Mouth, but it’s the location where this photo was taken that should be exciting for fans of both Deadpool and the X-Men.

Check out the Deadpool 2 set photo below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

Spider-Man Spin-Off Marvel Universe - Spider-Man Homecoming

Following the unprecedented collaboration between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios to share Spider-Man, allowing the webslinger to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe with The Avengers, fans were surprised that there were spin-offs being developed featuring ancillary characters like Venom and a team-up movie featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat, especially when Kevin Feige confirmed they wouldn’t be tied to the MCU.

The development of these Spider-Man spin-offs seem counter-intuitive considering how successful Spider-Man: Homecoming looks to be this summer, currently tracking between $90 million and $108 million for an opening weekend. However, according to producer Amy Pascal, just because these movies featuring Spider-Man characters aren’t connected to the MCU doesn’t mean Tom Holland can’t pop up in them as the friendly neighborhood wallcrawler.
