It’s about goddamn time. Jack Kirby is finally getting creator credit inside Marvel titles. This is following last month’s nebulous, somewhat undefined announcement that Kirby’s family has settled with Marvel.
BEEN A FUCKING MINUTE, EH? I’ve been ruining this site with so much Marvel Movie Coverage that I almost went a week without talking about my other site-ruining obsession. Star Wars. Well don’t celebrate yet, Non-Existent Readers. ‘Cause we got ourselves some Episode VII non-news.
Here’s a glorious bit of cosplay. Wonder Woman straight emergin’ from battle. Bloodied, bruised, but ready for another goddamn round. ‘Cause she’s Wonder Woman.
Blizzard has come out and said that World of Warcraft is going to be around in 2024. At first it seems sort of ludicrous to think of a ten year-old MMO being around for its twentieth anniversary. But then you consider that a) Blizzard doesn’t have an MMO to replace it, and b) the player population of the title is still fucking enormous a decade into its existence.
Welcome to another edition of View From The Space-Ship. Your unfortunate opportunity to view the world through the eyes of an over-caffeinated, bi-polar subversive educator whose friends who are too talented, wife is too brilliant, and life is probably too good for him. Per usual I invite you to share your own views of the world.
Last week Hydra leaked the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer that was supposed to shown during this week’s Agents of SHIELD. Not to be deterred by the bad guys, Marvel announced they would reveal even more footage during AoS. Or maybe it’s not to be deterred from trying to draw eyes to the dying show. (Listen, I like the show. But the numbers ain’t great.) Either way — here’s the extended trailer they dropped.
Electronic (Dark, Satanic) Arts has announced that Star Wars Battlefront ain’t dropping until late next year. Which isn’t surprising to any dick-lord who remembers that Episode VII ain’t arriving until December of 2015. So like, you know. Synergy. Cross-medium mutual-product masturbation. Or something. I don’t know. It’s late, and the thirteen Monsters in my bloodstream are beginning to bid adieu.
Key & Peele is like, my favorite fucking thing going lately. Completely obsessed with their absurd humor, funny wigs, and cultural insight. However, when I think of them, I definitely don’t think “writing and directing horror flicks.” But that’s exactly what Jordan Peele is doing.
Here’s a leak of the Avengers: Infinity War teaser trailer that Marvel dropped today. Total bootleg quality shit. Ain’t supposed to be seen. I ain’t supposed to show post it, I suppose. But. Yeah hey whatever. ‘Cause when you have like thirteen visitors on your site you don’t really sweat hosting this kind of stuff. #YOLOFINITY
The Lego Movie was goddamn fantastic. And while there are myriad reasons for the movie kicking ass, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are objectively 75% of those reasons. So the idea that they’re returning to write and produce the second one has me (once again improbably) excited for the flick.
