The Ending Of Captain America: Civil War Was Almost Destroyed By The Marvel Creative Committee

Back in 2015, we heard Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige almost walked away from the company due to ongoing disagreements with the Marvel Creative Committee about "Captain America: Civil War." This group situated at the Marvel Entertainment offices in New York consisted of Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter, president Alan Fine, Marvel Comics writer Brian Michael Bendis, Marvel Comics publisher Dan Buckley, and Marvel Entertainment CCO Joe Quesada, and they were constantly meddling in th...

10 Things You Didn't Know About Moon Knight

Can a tweet break the discourse? London's own Sunday Times tried its darnedest in early August, 2021. It postulated that the role of Tony Stark -- a.k.a. Iron Man -- could have been played by any actor in Jon Faverau's "Iron Man" and the picture would have still succeeded. Never mind that box-office mainstay Tom Cruise was attached to Iron Man before Robert Downey Jr., the question has now been raised: Could any actor have donned Shellhead's costume and made Marvel matter again?The answer is com...

The Ending Of Iron Man Was A Last Minute Fix That Wasn't Completed Until Three Weeks Before Release

One of the earliest fan-favorite moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was an 11th-hour addition, delivered with the sweet flavor of deadline desperation.The climax of Jon Favreau's 2008 door-buster "Iron Man," based on the Marvel comics of the same name, entails weapons manufacturer Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) going toe-to-toe with former mentor and business partner Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges). Following an attempted coup in which Stane hired The Ten Rings to assassinate the Stark Indus...

Kraven The Hunter: Everything We Know So Far

Sony's Spider-Man Universe of movies continues to grow and perform well at the box office, with movies like "Venom" and "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" licking up impressive amounts of cash. That burgeoning universe will soon get its first big test with "Morbius," a Jared Leto-starring vampire movie that not a single human on planet Earth is excited about, but after that, Sony is dipping into more interesting territory with a "Kraven the Hunter" movie.

A Sinister Six Movie Should Copy Spider-Man: No Way Home & Bring In Miles

Sony’s upcoming Sinister Six movie should take some inspiration from Spider-Man: No Way Home and introduce a new version of Miles Morales. Sony has had plans for a Sinister Six film since The Amazing Spider-Man film franchise was in progress. The second film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, ended with a clear setup for the villain team, with the Green Goblin (Harry Osborn) and The Gentleman (Gustav Fiers) equipping allies (and possibly members) of Oscorp with advanced weapons and devices. The plans, ...

Iron Man Designed The Rescue Armor With A Huge Difference in Comics

In Avengers: Endgame, the sight of Pepper Potts flying into battle while wearing her very own Iron Man suit drew massive applause from audiences - but many did not yet realize the massive changes Marvel made to the armor from the comics. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has certainly seen many changes from the source material over the years (the most recent is Shang-Chi's Mandarin to the character Wenwu in the film), and some are more drastic than others. But in the original comics, the suit - dub...

The Eternals: Things Only Comic Book Fans Will Know About Kingo

When Pakistani-American actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani appears as Kingo Sunen in director Chloé Zhao's "Eternals," not only will it offer an interesting inversion on the traditional superhero formula, since Kingo is a global celebrity in his civilian identity who seeks to keep his superheroic deeds hidden from the world, but it will also present an intriguing blend of comics-faithful traits and cinematic riffs on the character.In both the comics and the film, Kingo is a big-screen star who h...

Iron Man's Secret Armor Doubles as a Corporate Lawyer

Marvel's Iron Man is one of the smartest characters in the Marvel Universe - and he's also one of the shrewdest businessmen on Earth, so it's no surprise that the genius, billionaire, playboy-philanthropist would quite literally invent a lawyer for himself. As the CEO of Stark Industries, Tony is often beset by legal troubles; lawyers accompanying him everywhere he goes would not be seen as out of the ordinary. In the short story collection Iron Man: Titanium, the tale Railguns, Power Ties and ...

No Time To Die Spoiler Review: Daniel Craig's Final Outing As James Bond Strives For Closure

"No Time to Die" comes 15 years after "Casino Royale," arguably the best James Bond movie. 2006 introduced the world to a rising star named Daniel Craig, who was known for his work in films like "Road to Perdition" and "Layer Cake," but who had yet to really break out and become a household name. Since then, we've been adventuring through the typical franchise peaks and valleys with Craig's Bond, and now, we're here at the end.And it does feel like the end.

While each comes with fifteen cards that they must include in their deck for all games, players select the other 25 to 35 from an ever-growing pool of basic and aspect cards.

Everything We Know About Armor Wars So Far

I know he's had his fair share of success, but at a certain point, I feel like the sheer pop cultural dominance of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to feel like a cruel joke to Terrence Howard. The dude ended up walking away from "Iron Man 2" over a payment dispute, was swiftly replaced by Don Cheadle, and the MCU has never looked back. To add insult to injury, Cheadle is now about to get his own Disney+ series, "Armor Wars," after appearing in seven MCU movies already (one of which went on to ...

11 Things That Make Absolutely No Sense In Loki

Some of these conundrums could be easily explained in Season 2, or in a future Marvel project (looking directly a...

The 15 Best Japanese Horror Movies Of All Time

Japanese horror (or "J-horror") films are their own kind of scary. Whether they're about serial killers or angry ghosts, these films create a different type of fear, one steeped in existential dread about what it means to exist and the loneliness that is inherent to the human condition. It's a special brand of nihilism that's often accompanied by the absurd, creating horror that points at the absurdity of life itself. This tone is what makes these films so hard to adapt to a Western perspective....
