Joe Quesada has dropped a new poster for Netflix’s Defenders series. I’m, I guess, I’m not really feeling it. But I hope those excited for the series dig it.
Add Namor to the multitude of potential characters showing up in Infinity War. One of Marvel’s own Czars of Content has confirmed the character’s rights are under the control of Marvel Studios.
Lots of restructuring going around in Marvel Studios this week. First it was announced that Kevin Feige more/less seized complete control of Marvel Studios from Isaac Perlmutter. Perlmutter being known for, you know, saying women don’t enjoy superhero flicks or need action figures. So I was like, okay, cool. And now comes news that Marvel Studios’ “Creative Committee” is being disbanded. Initial thoughts? I don’t really fucking care. At this point (seven years in), I’m willing to accept whatever Shepherd Feige has in mind for the MCU. He’s earned enough goodwill to buy my good faith thrice over, especially if reports of the “Creative Committee” was more a source of frustration for the minds behind than MCU than anything else. TL;DR – I trust Feige, let him have the MCU.
Well, shoot. I had completely forgotten that Marvel bought Miracleman. Can’t blame myself, since pretty much nothing has happened since they made purchase. However, that shit ends up! Or…in a couple of months.The Company That Loves The Word NOW! is going to begin reprinting the classic tales starting in 2014. After they finish the long-awaited game of catch-up, things get a bit crazier. Neil Gaiman is going to finally get to conclude his arc which has been sitting around for a hot minute.
Back in the day when he wasn’t running what feels like the entire goddamn Marvel Enterprise, Joe Quesada was an artist. A damn fine one, too. His work on Daredevil during the Kevin Smith run was some of my favorite artwork during those early teen years of mine. Throughout the years as he has inherited more and more responsibility, Dude Quesada’s artwork has taken a back seat. Riffing on a segment that’s part of Disney XD’s Marvel Universe programming block called “Master Class”, Quesada shows us how to draw the Hulk, while also showing off his radical skills.
At SXSW, Marvel unveiled its “ReEvolution” initiative. Brief aside: who the fuck is naming things at Marvel right now? They all sound like B-SIDES of all the already awful Final Fantasy descriptors. Anyways. Moving along. The most striking part of this new movement is the announcement of a digital-only line of comics. Welcome to the future?
Marvel COO and former artist (shots fired!) Joe Quesada has spouted off about all the DC ‘New 52’ and Avengers vs. X-Men comparisons. If you’ve half a brain, it’s pretty much the noise you were expecting.
Say what you will about his tenure as E-i-C, I dig Joe Quesada. The dude elevated the fucking game way back in the early 2000s. His run on Daredevil with Kevin Smith, his creation of Marvel Knights, his hand in the Ultimate line. He helped draw in huge names, ramped up a rivalry with DC which benefited both stables, and more. He’s been up and down since then, but the dude behind a renaissance (in my opinion) of the Marvel line deserves some credit.
In a new interview with Comic Book Resources, the new Chief Creative Officer of Marvel dropped some interesting thoughts. He spouted off about bringing Marvel creators more prominently into the movie and television projects.
Hit the jump for the deets.
