Don’t know if this is old or not. Don’t care. It’s probably from something I read years ago. Chalk up my memory loss to caffeination and heavy medication. Found it on our boy Benjamin Santiago‘s Tumblr, and figured I would flip it over here. ‘Cause it is Rafael fucking Grampá.
Pretty outstanding video by one of my favorite artists hanging in the Marvel game, right here. Paolo Rivera has shared with the world a video of him rocking out the cover to Daredevil #22. Particularly awesome is how the video lets you see how the artist uses his own poses for reference when drawing the characters. I knew he did such a thing, but it is entertaining to all of a sudden see a picture of Rivera juxtaposed with the Webbed One.
This is some outrageously fantastically swell endeavoring, right here. Artist Butcher Billy has taken old school Marvel artwork and interjected it into movies from the House of Ideas. The results are disjointed bliss.

It’s not hard to see why Peter Parker is one of the most popular characters in all of comics-lore.
Would you be shocked if you found out that a comic book franchise is aiming to be a trilogy? I hope not.

But seriously: this film is worth admission alone because this time, they hired a fucking casting director. Gone is the triumvirate of shit that Tobey, Kirsten and Franco brought to the table.
Director Marc Webb gone and killed it. You will fall in love with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in this film. They’re just glowing with chemistry and love and presence. Garfield takes a half hour or so to get there, but Stone is just a magnet for attention in every scene, and never in a presumptuous or overbearing way. They work, and they work very well as the leads in this re-take on Spider-Man’s origin.
To be perfectly clear: I don’t expect this to mean anything, I just find the speculation fun.
The Spider-Man and Avengers movie universes could collide, and goddamn I say no.
I ain’t excited for Spider-Man but I do enjoy Andrew Garfield. And Emma Stone? Goodness me, yes. Here is a clip of the two of them belting out some nonsensical jam about the Spider-Parker with an adorableness that I suspect won’t be found in the film. Haters gon’ hate. I’m a hater.
Well, it’s happening. The Ultimate and 616 universes are somehow interacting, an event that Joe Quesada once said would only happen when Marvel was out of ideas. Which you know, makes it seem like perfect sense that its happening now.
