Avengers 4 Teaser is here!

Hot off the presses, title revealed at the end:

It seems oddly subdued for our enormous expectations (Ant Man is at the front door?? What a twist!), but eh, this is just the opening salvo. We’re in the endgame now! By the way, was it just me, or did anyone else need closed captioning for Tony’s mumbling? Mumbler!

A Wish List For the Expanding World of Marvel Gaming

by Hunter Audley

With a mandate to produce better video games in the immediate future, Marvel is expanding its entertainment reach once more. And this time, it’s doing so in an area in which it’s really struggled to date. Some will inevitably point to old X-Men arcades, app experiences, or even LEGO gaming adventures as evidence that Marvel has always been somewhat busy in gaming, but has the quality really met expectations? Is there a Marvel game that goes toe-to-toe with the Arkham Asylum series of DC-related games?

Casting the rebooted Superman and Batman movies!

This fan-casting piece was taking agonizingly long to finish, and I realized why: I was trying so hard to do write-ups for each entry, and realized that there’s really not too much to say about why you want a certain actor to play a comic book character. They just feel right in your gut. And so, with the news that Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are out as Batty and Supey, and DC is moving in another direction, I present MY choices for who should play each, and their respective supporting casts, in live-action reboots! One note- I have actually had (most of) these choices in the back of my mind since roughly 2010 or so, so many picks are dated. Some actors, indeed, are dead. But everyone actually could pretty much STILL play the roles a decade later, so I’m just presenting my cast as is, since some actors were selected to go with others. Here, then, without comment, are the brand new definitive Superman and Batman movie casts! Oh admit it, most of them are the spitting image of the drawings! Even the dead guys!

Stan Lee on his very last legs, true believers

https://www.thedailybeast.com/stan-lee-would-like-to-set-the-record-straight-will-anyone-let-him

Needed a voice box to talk?? Holy God, this article was worse than I imagined. I think this might really be it for Stan. Daughter sounds vile, this piece- specifically written to clear up the allegations against HER- sound more than just a little like Stan’s coerced defenses of Keya Morgan. “Say what you want about me, but leave my dear, sweet, kind and totally-not-greedy daughter JC out of it!” It’s plain weird that he actually says in the article that JC couldn’t wait until he died to get his money and he just wants her to be happy and spend it all now. Like, is this something you want the public to know? They even took Stan’s picture with his wig falling off! Please, leave The Man alone! I keep saying let him rest peacefully, but I don’t know if that’s possible in his current environment. Now I’m just hoping poor Stan’s end is quick and painless, which it truly feels awful to say. “I hope my daughter loves me.” Ugh. Stan don’t know what’s up, he called JC by his wife’s name. They’re wheeling him around now like it’s “Weekend at Stanley’s,” it’s shameful. Let him keep his dignity, if you must take his money and all else. Please.
