Kevin Feige is the madman/genius that made Marvel’s Cinematic Universe/Phase 1/Avengers franchise from the Marvel Comics to the theatrical screens. He provided his advice to Warner Bros regarding their efforts for a similar/parallel Justice League film series. “I’m sure they have smart people over there who have a plan and know what they’re doing. Man …

This is the second of our “Lost Podcasts.” Erik Burnham and I both worked in video stores so as often happens, while gearing up to record a discussion about something else, we just get talking about movies…and it turns into a whole ‘nother podcast! Lost Podcast 2: More Chatting About Movies [ 17:49 | 6.13 …
from Fred Hembeck Being the semi-literate Beatles fan that I am, upon learning that the central character (and murder victim) of 1932′s “The Phantom of Crestwood” was named Jenny Wren, I immediately assumed Paul McCartney must’ve been up late one night watching the tube when he was inspired to write a similarly named tune for …

I love this quote: “Caesar will always look computer generated in the same way Roger Rabbit will always be a cartoon, but his face expresses more genuine human emotion than James Franco ever will.” via It’s Uncanny, This Valley: The Ups And Downs Of Cinematic CGI InHumanity
I think it’s pretty clear to everyone that Green Lantern tried to do too much and pack in too much exposition. But just in case you haven’t heard it enough: Why Iron Man Succeeded Where Green Lantern Failed.
It’s funny. As soon as I saw two criminals mule-kicking the door of a house in broad daylight, I knew it was a movie from England. But if they’re speaking English, why aren’t they talking? Usually, when a trailer is wordless, it’s because it’s foreign and they’re angling to lure in the unsuspecting without telling …
Cracked.com had a photo contest urging people to make pulpy, b-movie posters for classic A-List movies. You have to see the Fargo one.
7 Examples of Misguided Superhero Casting – Holytaco. I don’t care what anyone says. Winchester from M.A.S.H. was certainly the right voice for J’onn J’onzz, and while he may be out of shape, he was going to be a shadowy advisor to the League. It’s not a terrible idea.
SHOCKER! Disney Halts ‘The Lone Ranger’ With Johnny Depp And Gore Verbinski – Deadline.com. Disney allegedly halted production of “The Lone Ranger” because of the $200 million price tag. *sputter* $200 million??? Two hundred million DOLLARS to make a western where two guys ride on horses firing guns at other guys on horses? Guys, you …
The Complete Guide to Stan “The Man” Lee’s Marvel Movie Cameos.
Worth it just to see the Batmobile! No time for part two of Elongated Man tonight. And yes, I’m trying to redesign the site to look more comic booky.
It’s only two photos. I don’t care. I’m excited it’s happening.
I didn’t really say anything about Hector Hammond. Frankly, I feel he was totally wasted. The film’s attempt to make him some sort of avatar…nothing less than the Silver Surfer to Parallax’s big-ugly-planet-sized-cloud-that-we’ll-call-Galactus…really doesn’t work. Hector could have been a villain for the entire movie; as it is, we have this whole Daddy didn’t love …
Is Emerald Knights an amazing movie that I will watch many, many times? No. First off, I always remind myself that this is an amazing age that I live in, where more and more of the comic book characters I loved as a kid are being turned into movies and TV shows and cartoons than …
Amazon package arrived today. Guess what’s inside? The animated Legion of Super-Heroes Vol. 1-3, which is now packaged together for $17 instead of sold individually for $15 each. (I don’t know why they won’t do season sets anymore. Obviously, they want to shake us down for more cash per individual disk, but I’m not buying …
“Heroes Are Made In America” THAT’s what needs to be on the posters! Isn’t it strange how during all the pre-production press, director Joe Johnston is out there talking about how it’s not going to be flag-waving and jingoistic (what, is the guy allergic to selling tickets?), but once it’s time to promote it in …
