Rise of the Planet of the Apes by JC Richard - Mondo Prints Comic Con 2016

Last week we wrote about some of the Mondo prints that would be available at San Diego Comic Con International 2016, and we even shared with you how you could get your own Mondo Star Wars prints without being on the exhibit floor. But as always, Mondo surprises its fans throughout the convention with new onside releases. I thought I’d share with you some of this incredible art, even though many of these are likely sold out at this point (b ut don’t lose all hope, Mondo often saves variants for online release later). Hit the jump to check out the previously uncovered Mondo prints from Comic Con 2016.

Superhero Movie Easter Eggs

Even though the phrase “superhero fatigue” is getting thrown around a lot, and some people have expressed their distaste for the popular genre of films in general, the box office numbers and fanbases are enough to prove that concept wrong. We’re living in a golden age of superhero movies, and while not all of them are outstanding, they’ve never been better or more beloved by general audiences then they are now.

But that doesn’t mean there still aren’t references in comic book movies that are only made for the most hardcore fans to understand. See if you picked up on some of these more obscure superhero movie Easter eggs in films like Superman: The Movie, Spider-Man 2, The Dark Knight and more. Read More »

The Avengers Group

One of the many reasons people continue to show up in droves to Marvel movies is they want to see what happens next. With each subsequent film, short or TV show, one cohesive story continues to unfold. It’s serial moviemaking.

That means, hypothetically, if you wanted to watch the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as one movie, you could. They were conceived as a single story all linking together, so why not edit them into one huge movie? You can and that’s exactly what some Marvel fans have done. However, while that’s cool on its own, they’ve gone one step further. They’ve created a video letting people know how to make their own edit of Phase One in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as one, chronological movie. Check out the how to Marvel Phase One Timeline video below. Read More »

Like all the other Marvel movies before it, this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy is jam-packed with Easter Eggs. An “easter egg” is a hidden visual or audio cue that doesn’t add to a story, and isn’t necessary to see on first watch, but adds to repeat viewings by winking to the fans. Marvel is great at this, stuffing their films with Easter Eggs both very obvious and rather subtle, making all of their movies crazy rewatchable.

The problem with most of these Marvel Easter Eggs is they go by so fast, you often can’t see them until the films hit Blu-ray. That’s why this new video from MTV, Every Marvel Easter Egg Explained In One Video, only goes through last year’s Thor: The Dark World. Even so, it’s still an awesome watch and surely includes some things even the most hard-core fans might have missed. Read More »

The Avengers - Thor and Captain America (header)

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters today, which means it’s a day to celebrate the achievements of Marvel Studios. We’re in the middle of a comic book storytelling renaissance, folks, and Marvel is at the head of it. The way they have weaved all these characters and movies together into one huge story is truly remarkable. It’s something we talk about every day, but step back a second and look really think about it. It’s movie history.

As the case with most things, history isn’t without its detractors, such as the team at CinemaSins. Once again they’ve gone ahead and nitpicked their way to millions of YouTube views with their patented “Everything Wrong With” series. Two of the latest videos, not coincidentally released close to The Winter Soldier, are Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor: The Dark World. Watch “Everything Wrong With Thor The Dark World” and “Everything Wrong With Captain America: The First Avenger” below. Read More »
