A week ago, I wrote a post about what the roster of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 were up to in 2016. The most common thing written in the comments was: “what about Spider-Man?” Consider this a follow up.
12 years ago, Max Landis wasn’t a Hollywood screenwriter yet. He was just another guy writing fan-fiction about C-list Spidey villain The Shocker. Yeah, the guy who wears a quilted unitard.
The original wall-crawler is a little salty about Miles’ costume, though. Because even he has to admit that it’s cooler.
Deadpool wasn’t always a comics (and movie, and video game) superstar. The Merc with a Mouth started out much smaller, as a supporting character in one of the many X-Men comic books. We talked to the people who created and shaped him, to find out how Deadpool conquered the universe.
Marvel’s putting out two comics with teenage Spider-Men in lead roles. Spidey features a young Peter Parker at the start of his crime-fighting career; Spider-Man serves to introduce Miles Morales into the newly revamped Marvel Universe. I was afraid that one book would be a carbon copy of the other but, thankfully,…
Between the glut of appearances following the debut of Spider-Man’s nemesis in the late ‘80s and his mediocre appearance in 2007's Spider-Man 3, Venom was all but dead to me. But now he’s Venom: Space Knight, and I can’t get enough.
There are lots of Spider-people in the Marvel Universe right now. But only two of them call themselves Spider-Man. One, of course, is the newly-rich Peter Parker, originator of the wall-crawler identity. The other is an alternate-reality successor to the Spider-mantle named Miles Morales. This week, we see Miles play…
In our current age of mega-Marvel machinations and decade-long transmedia story arcs, it’s easy to forget what it was like before the Avengers assembled. Way back at the turn of the century, we got a pair of films that in many ways paved the way for the Marvel Cinematic Universe we know and love today.
There are lots of Spider-people in Marvel Comics nowadays but only one of them has the distinction of being the parallel universe version of Peter Parker’s long-dead girlfriend. Making an alt-Gwen into a superhero is a good twist but it’s not the sole reason that readers should check out her adventures.
We all know Spider-Man, right? He’s a guy from Queens named Peter Parker, who got bitten by a radioactive spider and became CEO of a multimillion dollar company. He owns a car that can drive upside down, too. Yep, good ol’ Spidey.
Next month, Marvel is introducing a whole new line up of comics—and a whole new universe to go with them. Don’t know your Earth-616 from your Earth-65? What the hell is with this Secret Wars thing? Will your favorite hero still have a comic? Will they even be the same person? Here’s everything you need to know going…
Whether we are talking about a distant planet in a galaxy far far away or uncanny living creatures that are half-men and half-spiders, Mother Nature is ruthless and its rules apply the same everywhere. Make sure you don’t miss the twist at the end of this short because it’s so damn good.
You can’t say the name “Mary Jane Watson” without immediately thinking about Spider-Man. Peter Parker’s favorite redhead originally appeared in the webslinger’s comics more than fifty years ago and has primarily been used in Spidey storylines since then. But she’s leaving webshooters behind... for Stark-brand power…
Let’s hope Annie May doesn’t have the ol’ Parker luck like her famous, web-slinging father.
There have been hundreds of movies based on comic-books, going back to the earliest days of both media. And that cinematic flood has come with a certain amount of “holy crap, what was that” moments. Here are the 50 most shudder-inducing comic-book-movie moments... according to you. Check out our new video, created in…
Now that Ant-Man is in theaters, it’s time to fully discuss some of the bigger spoilers in the film. These involve Avengers, upcoming Marvel characters, new movies, past movies and more. Some you noticed, some maybe you didn’t, but we got the head of the studio, Kevin Feige, and director Peyton Reed to explain their…
Thus far, 2016 is the year of the superhero. Deadpool and Batman v. Superman both shattered the box office, proving that audiences can’t get enough of costumes and powers. But what’s the best superhero movie of all time? And what’s the worst? Here’s our ranking of all 109 superhero movies to date.
Forget Harrison Ford! We know who the real stars at Comic-Con are: the cosplayers. Every year, they show up and rock our worlds with their incredible creativity, design skills and deep appreciation for fan lore. Here’s a video roundup of the absolute best cosplay we saw at SDCC 2015.
Whoa. We’ve been getting dribs and drabs of reveals for Marvel’s upcoming universal reboot over the past week, but it looks like the jackpot has just hit: Comics retailers across the world have received previews for 45(!) of Marvel’s new series, and it sounds like it’s a whole lot of crazy.
