Pencil, Paper, Scissors… Paper Cut Illustrations by John Ed De Vera

Six days after Marvel Comics mastermind Stan Lee departed for the great unknown, in November 2018, multidisciplinary designer John Ed De Vera created the legend’s portrait, made up of tiny pieces of paper glued together one on top of the other, in an incredibly vivid 3D collage. This was the artist’s tribute to the iconic superhero creator, a way to say ‘thank you’ and immortalize him through the...

‘Dawn of the Dead’ at 15: Zack Snyder’s Best Film is the One With Zombies, Not Superheroes

As it pertains to comic book movies, the name Zack Snyder can be a rather contentious one. Snyder’s filmography reads like a wish list of Hollywood adaptations that a reader of Wizard: The Guide to Comics could have only meekly fantasized about back in the 1990s. 300, Watchmen, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Justice League. If you fired up Doctor Doom’s time platform and traveled to a convention floor in the past, carrying an envelope with only those five titles credited to the same direct...

‘Captain Marvel’ Favorite Goose the Cat Gets the Purrfect Funko POP Figures

Captain Marvel is only in its second weekend at the box office (which added considerably more cash to the movie’s haul), but it’s already a certified hit. Even though Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn are the stars, there’s one breakout character that fans can’t get enough of, and they’re not human. It’s Goose the cat, and the little feline is getting a pair of new Funko POP figures that fans of Captain Marvel are going to love. But if you want to see them, beware of spoilers. ...

'Bohemian Rhapsody' director Bryan Singer has reportedly been fired from 'Red Sonja' following allegations of child sexual abuse

Bryan Singer has been fired from directing "Red Sonja," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Bryan Singer Out as Red Sonja Director

Bryan Singer out as Red Sonja director The Hollywood Reporter brings word that director Bryan Singer is no longer attached to the Red Sonja movie that’s in-development at Millennium Films. According to the trade, Singer was dropped from the project, not because of reports of him sexually assaulting underaged boys, but because the production company couldn’t secure a distributor in the US with Singer involved.

Marvel’s Secret Invasion Could Still Happen, Assures Kevin Feige

The Skrulls are some of the most famous villains in Marvel Comics, and it all lead to an epic comic book crossover storyline called “Secret Invasion” that ran through a self-titled eight issue limited series and several tie-in books from April through December 2008. With the introduction of the Skrulls in 2019’s Captain Marvel, it was no surprise that fans expected the film to plant the seeds for an eventual Secret Invasion movie. But while evidence points to the contrary, Marvel studios chief ...

Stan Lee Cameo Confirmed for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’

Captain Marvel isn’t just special because it’s the first female-led superhero movie from Marvel Studios. And it’s not just special because the huge box office haul from last weekend is making sad little fanboys cry while holding their blankies. It has a very touching opening tribute to Stan Lee, the legendary Marvel Comics creator who sadly passed away last year. However, the Stan Lee cameo in Captain Marvel won’t be the last time we get to see the comic book icon on the big screen. ET Online...

How ‘Captain Marvel’ Credits Scenes Set Up the Future and Fill in the Past of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Captain Marvel is in theaters this weekend, and it’s the last Marvel Studios movie before Avengers: Endgame arrives late next month.

How Stan Lee’s ‘Captain Marvel’ Cameo Changed After the Comic Legend’s Death

Last fall, we lost Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee when the creator of some of the world’s most famous superheroes passed away at age 95. But that wasn’t the last we’d see of Lee, because he had already shot cameos for some upcoming Marvel Studios productions, including this weekend’s Captain Marvel. However, that film’s scene featuring the comic legend’s cameo changed a little bit once Lee passed away, and it made the scene a little more touching.

‘Captain Marvel’ and the Bizarre Comic Book History of Carol Danvers

Most big-screen superheroes tend to take a form resembling their original comics. Batman has always been a caped crusader, Superman has always leapt tall buildings in a single bound, and Spider-Man has always been a dorky webslinger. Even Marvel Studios has delivered comic-accurate versions of characters like Captain America and Iron Man, whose movie origins can be traced back to their comic book debuts. Captain Marvel however, has a long, complicated and at times bizarre history. Carol Danv...

We’ve already highlighted a ton of the cool movie and TV-inspired toys and collectibles that were revealed at the 2019 New York Toy Fair last weekend.
