Comic-Con means toys: Not just the ones you line up a zillion hours for to get at the convention, but all the toys you discover that are on their way to threaten your savings account over the next few months. We’ve seen badass generals, giant robots, and even shapely butts so far, but now it’s Marvel’s turn!
FX’s Legion: An exuberant reminder of how fun superhero shows can be.
If you want to see a superhero movie, go see Captain America. If you want to see a Western, go see The Magnificent Seven. If you want to see a road movie, go see Mad Max: Fury Road. If you want to see a superhero Western road movie that’s also set in the future, go see Logan. The cars themselves are worth it, and…
A while back, I attended a Fox press event where they showed the first act of Logan, the third and likely final solo outing of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. For me, who was not sold on giving this character another movie, the 40 minutes I saw more than proved this movie’s worth.
Hasbro’s excellent six-inch Marvel Legends line has relatively X-Men free since 2014's paltry Toys’R’Us exclusive Jubilee series. Now Marvel’s mutant heroes return with eight figures and the parts to build the Juggernaut, bitch. Sorry, reflex.
Most discussion about superhero video games revolves around the same few boring superheroes. People want to be Superman. They want to be Wolverine. They want to be Batman. Everyone wants to be the most popular and least interesting superheroes in comic books. Enough, I say! There’s only one superhero we absolutely…
Joel Furtado is an artist and animator from Canada who has worked on games like Halo 4, Star Wars Kinect and the Need for Speed series.
I’ve given them time to ship out multiple story arcs, find their footing and sketch out whatever themes and big ideas they’re aiming for. But there’s no denying it any more: The X-Men line just isn’t exciting nowadays.
Between Days of Future Past and Apocalypse, Evan Peters’ Quicksilver has swiftly established himself as a cornerstone of the X-Men movie universe. YouTuber Ez pays tribute to the speedster by recreating his latest heroic music video in Fallout 4.
A lot of cosplayers use coloured contact lenses to help them match the appearance of their favourite characters, but that use has a downside: when something goes wrong, it’s going wrong somewhere that’s both sensitive and pretty darn important for the cosplayer.
I never thought I would say this, but I miss the hell out of licensed games.
X-Men: Apocalypse is coming out in about a month, and the X-Men are my favorite superheroes, so let’s talk X-Men video games.
There are over 25 X-Men games, and I haven’t even played all of them, so ranking them would be a massive undertaking. Instead, let’s remember some of the good, bad, and in between moments in the…
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.
A brand new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer was released this morning. Most surprising of all was the enormous quanity of new footage it contained, including the appearance of a new-old villain in a not insignificant way. Here’s what we’ve gleaned from our painstaking frame-by-frame analysis.
Damn, Tony. That’s harsh.
Unless some other series winds up pulling off something unexpected, E Is for Extinction is going to wind up my favorite Secret Wars tie-in book. And that’s because the X-Men-in- twilight story has nothing to do with Dr. Doom or any crossover nonsense. It’s all about the right way for old superheroes to die.
Forget Days of Future Past. Sending Wolverine’s consciousness back to the 1970s may have erased the calamity of X3: X-Men United, but that’s small potatoes compared to how Deadpool may have altered the trajectory of the future of Fox’s X-Men movie universe—and a lot of other superhero movies, too.
If you think it’s tough being the scarred, wise-cracking Deadpool in the world of superheroes and villains, you haven’t heard what writers Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and the film’s other creators had to go through to make his movie a reality.
