Marvel has set the new X-Men movie for a July 2014 release date, but nothing is known about what the movie will be about. Ain't It Cool News was alerted to a MPAA name registration by Fox for "Days of Future Past", which could mean they are using that as the basis for the next movie. As the classic story is set in an alternate timeline, they co... more.
The 10 Best Marvel Games Ever
1 CommentsPosted by Jeremy Conrad on May 19, 2012 under Comics, Featured, Gaming, Lists
They've been making games based on Marvel characters for decades now, but like most comic book-based games...there is a lot of crap out there. A lot of it is just cheap tie-ins to make a quick buck from a movie, leaving the gems few and far between. But like with Batman and the DC characters, there are occasionally Marvel games that rise above the rest to become true classics. Not just for being... more.

Comic legend Neil Adams will be returning to X-Men comics later this year with a five-issue mini-series focusing on Wolverine and Magneto. Adams recently finished the amazingly psycho nuts Batman Odyssey, which is perhaps one of the most awesome and completely insane Batman story you'll ever read...so we're definitely looking forward to what he's going to do with Logan and Magneto. Marvel anno... more.
Is There an Avengers Tie-In Game Coming?

Unlike nearly every previous superhero movie, especially the Marvel ones, The Avengers doesn't have a tie-in video game on store shelves. There has been some leaked footage from a cancelled first-person THQ Avengers game online in the past, but aside from that there's nothing out there for people to play while they're recovering from the geekgasm the movie gave them. That may change as UbiSoft ... more.

Everyone doubting Joss Whedon's superhero chops is eating crow today. Despite his ups and downs with television shows over the years, his comic writing has always been top notch. His run on Astonishing X-Men is some of the best superhero team-writing the character experienced since Chris Claremont left the book nearly a decade prior. That knowledge of how to do a superhero team right translate... more.
DC’s 2012 Crossover Begins…
0 CommentsPosted by Jeremy Conrad on April 20, 2012 under Comics, News
When DC did their big New 52 relaunch last year they pronounced that there would be no big company-wide crossover this summer. While Marvel is pitting the Avengers vs X-Men, there's nothing quite that epic happening in the DC Universe this summer. Of course, that doesn't stop them from doing a crossover in the Batman family of books. In the first six months of the new Batman run, Bruce Wayne ha... more.

Ever since he sold Wildstorm in 1998, Jim Lee has been with DC Comics but long time comic readers remember his star-making work with Marvel. Perhaps his most popular run of all time prior to his DC stuff was the amazing launch of X-Men in 1991 and that classic gatefold cover of the whole team. Jeremy Roberts created the above image as a homage to that classic Jim Lee cover and posted it on more.

This summer's sole big comic crossover begins tomorrow night at midnight as many comic shops will be staying open late to sell the first issue, but is it worth lining up for? DC won't be doing a major crossover this summer, so it's up to Bendis and Marvel to deliver epic super hero action. After last summer's Fear Itself, I really wasn't looking forward to any Marvel book anymore. That event w... more.

If there's one thing you can count on with geeks, they really pump money into theaters whenever a big movie comes out. As a result, geek-friendly movies are regularly the highest grossing ones of each year and 2011 was no exception. From the end of Harry Potter, reboots, sequels, and even a couple of really good original movies this year was a surprisingly good year. This list compiles, in or... more.
