‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Poster

Superherohype has revealed a new poster for Chris Evans’ upcoming Marvel Studios movie (which has been described as a political thriller in the vein of “Three Days of the Condor,” which is awesome because that’s a great movie and ‘Soldier’ also happens to star Robert Redford, who also starred in ‘Condor.’ In the poster, Cap […]

A Matter Of Continuity : ‘The Avengers’

I think Marvel Studios “The Avengers” is – so far – the best superhero film ever made.  It takes itself seriously enough that it doesn’t come off as silly, yet remembers that this stuff is based on comic books, which were originally geared toward children (though in places like Japan – and to an extent […]

The Winter Soldier Revealed!

Now this is what I call a scoop (which I wish were mine;)!  Courtesy of thefuriousfanboys.com, here’s the first shot that I have seen of the Winter Soldier from Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  I don’t even consider myself a fan of the character, but this looks to be crazy accurate. I assume that that’s […]

Stan Lee Unleashes The ‘Annihilator’

Stan Lee is obviously a talented man.  He’s had a hand in the creation of some of the most enduring characters in the Marvel Universe, like Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, and even some from DC Comics as well. That being the case, why is it that he can’t seem to do anything lasting […]

Every Wonder How Much It Would Cost To Be Batman?

When you were young, at some time you probably imagined yourself to be a superhero.  Maybe one day you’d be Spider-Man, Captain America or maybe the next Superman. Or Wonder Woman, or Storm. Though perhaps Batman was one of your favorites. When you were young, all you needed was maybe a towel to serve as […]

Real-Life ‘Captain America’ Story

This story amazed me when I first found it.  According to Yahoo! News an airplane that had vanished for 60 years has been found on an Alaska glacier.  The plane, a US Air Force Globemaster, similar to the one pictured on the left, disappeared sometime in 1952, with a crew of 52 servicemen. The remains […]

‘The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’

I was watching Netflix, when I saw one of the new additions was “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,” a cartoon that’s, essentially, a twenty-three minute advert for Marvel Studios upcoming ‘Avengers’ movie this May. The show is featured on Disney XD, which is owned by Disney (as is Marvel). I didn’t expect all that much, […]

Captain America Does (Surprisingly) Well Overseas

Edited 8/10 934 I am not surprised that “Captain America: The First Avenger” is doing well in the United States.  It’s a well-done, entertaining film, though it does revolve around a superhero that, in a very real sense, embodies many uniquely American dreams and aspirations, so if it weren’t doing well here, I’d be shocked. […]

Avengers Assembled!

Edited 7/24 1729 Here’s a little something to tide you over till Monday. The Black Widow, Thor, Iron Man, The Hulk, Hawkeye, and Captain America make up The Avengers, and the introduction of what is known as The Marvel Cinematic Universe: An interconnected series of films–”Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Thor” and […]

‘Captain America’ Vs. The World

Edited 7/23 1202 Captain America has pulled in a total of $66 million from Thursday to Friday,  making for the biggest opening for a superhero film this summer, beating “Thor,” “X-Men: First Class,” and “Green Lantern.” Here’s a little clip of a patriotic (and frankly jingoistic) vein to celebrate (though the language is a little […]
