Damian Wayne! Motherfucker was dope as fuck, slapping around foes with Daddy, and flaunting his superior genes. Then they killed his ass off. However, it looks like he is going to be coming back from the grave. Like every other comic character. Ever.
With Captain White Guy: White Guys Fight Over The World 2 dropping today, Sony is eager to remind the comic book fandom they have their own super-powered white dude coming to save the day this summer. Droppin’ a fucking extended TV spot for the Amazing Spider-Man 2. It’s aiight. I’m ready! Ready to dig into this flick.
Cinematic comic book universes for all! All the universes! All the characters! ‘Cause when something is hot in Hollywood, you do the obvious. Wring the concept of all its energy, novelty, and excitement. Sony knows how Hollywood works. Sony has their hands obviously on the meat grinder.

What a weird and welcome development coming down the pipe. The RZA is following-up his first stab at directing by adapting Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s new comic book, Happy!.

I love me some Jessica Biel. Don’t get me wrong. It’s just that it’s going to take more than her to get me stoked for The Logan Guy.
Let us not postulate any longer! There is no need. This is the official timeline of the Marvel Movie universe. Complete in typical sexy infographical form for us to digest.
James Badge Dale has held it down on a lot of works, but I liked him the most in the ill-fated Rubicon. Since AMC nixed it, while perpetuating slop like Walking Dead, and Kevin Smith’s Fat Zany Adventure, I’ve been rooting for everyone involved in the submarined television show, especially the lead. Casting him in Iron Man 3 is a particularly delicious development, for this really drawn out reason.
