Feeling a little overwhelmed by the vast movie slates announced by Sony, Marvel and WB? So are we, but here’s a chart helpfully put together by our own Tireless Torsten Adair and edited by the Beat that shows 58 superhero, comic book, cartoon, Star Wars and Harry POtter movies between now and the next US Census.
The 56 Superhero, comic book, cartoon and Star Warsmovies coming to you from now until 2020 [UPDATED]
Marvel Studios is holding a press conference at 2 pm edt/11pdt today and you can follow along at the Marvel live blog, or Twitter or smokesignals, or whatever method you prefer.
While most guess it could be about the ‘Batch being cast as Doctor Strange, it could also be about other mystery slots in the movie schedule, or it could be the Age of Ultron trailer that was supposed to officially debut tonight, or about Katee Sackhoff starring as lady Captain Marvel in Avengers 3.
Here’s a new movie about cartoonists and comic book making: Comic Book Artists: The Next Generation, which spotlights creators Raid Studios in Toronto, including Ramon Perez, Francis Manapul, Kalman Andrasofsky and Marcus Antony To. Some promising up and comers named Stan Lee and Jim Lee also appear—I believe they are unrelated. It’s a nice look at the artist’s studio and the collegial spirit that evolves from it.

With this week’s epochal news that the Marvel Cinematic UNiverse will be adapting the Civil War event storyline, many are wondering…why? Few of the superheroes introduced in the MCU even have secret identities—which were the crux of the kerfuffle between Iron Man and Captain America. Some just think it’s a bad idea on other terms.
Noelle Stevenson, of Lumberjanes and Nimona fame, is one of the sharpest commentators on Twitter, with incisive character analysis delivered in short 140-character bursts. Her thoughts on Avengers characterization are below.
WHOA. It turns out that Civil War tease Marvel sent out was just the prelude to the real blockbuster news: Robert Downey Jr. will play a major role in Captain America 3 which will feature the Civil War storyline.
A film has been made about Seth, the single named Autuer of Clyde Fans, It’s A Good Life If You Don’t Weaken, Palookaville, and countless illustrations. It’s called Seth’s Dominion, it’s directed by Luc Chamberland and it is described as “a hybrid documentary/animation film exploring the life of master cartoonist Seth.”
Given that Seth is a perfectionist, you’d expect no less of a film about him, so to no one’s surprise the film has won the Grand Prize for Best Animated Feature at this year’s Ottawa International Animation Festival.
Rob Liefeld was right! The co-creator of Deadpool has been hinting about a movie for the “merc with a mouth” for years, and he’s finally been vindicated, as Fox has announced a Deadpool movie for February 12, 2016. While Ryan Reynolds—who portrayed Deadpool in Wolverine: Origins—hasn’t been signed yet, given his decade long opsession with […]

Is Matter Eater Lad coming to the movies? WB is rumored to be developing a Legion Of Superheroes movie
A report at Latino Review suggests that the Legion of Superheroes, DC’s long running cult comics about a futuristic group of space faring 31st century teenagers, created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino, is being developed for a film at Warner Brothers: According to sources, Warners is quietly sending out the DC comic book […]
Here’s a scene you might not see in the upcoming Superman vs. Batman film. Amy Adams and Henry Cavill accepted the ALS Ice Bucket challenge in full wardrobe on the set of the Man of Steel sequel. Adams challenged all the siblings names she could remember. I don’t want to ruin the end for you, but I […]
Well it wasn’t really enormous, but it is bigger than an ant. Yet it does not show star Paul Rudd as Ant-Man but rather as brooding hoodie man. A white man in a hoodie. Safe as houses. Anyway, according to an UNUSUALLY excited press release from Disney, Ant-Man just went into production with Peyton Reed […]
When Marvel and WB both picked May 6, 2916 as a release date—Marvel aggressively moving Captain America 3 to the same date as the long expected Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice—we all knew someone would blink. And it was WB. They have just announced that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will move up […]
That's a wrap on #FantasticFour!

Turns out it’s […]
Well, given LUCY triumphing over HERCULES at the box office—Scarlett Johansson is now a bigger action star than The Rock—you’d think Marvel or DC would finally fish or cut bait, shit or get off the pot, stop hemming and hawing, pull the trigger…
