The Hulk trying to hold Thor's hammer? What sort of tomfoolery is this, Marvel Comics? Well, we'll all find out in April, when Mark Waid and Walt Simonson will team up for a project that apparently involves some smashing: Read More...

Marvel and DC Comics might still dominate the market share, but Image's "The Walking Dead" was the #1 title on both the comic book and graphic novel charts for comics retailers in 2012. According to Diamond, "WD" #100 beat Uncanny Avengers #1, Avengers #1, several issues of "Avengers Vs. X-Men," and "Amazing Spider-Man" #700 on their top ten list of best-selling comics for the year. On the graphic novel side, multiple volumes of the zombie title beat out "Batman: Earth One" and the first "New 52" Batman collected harcover edition. Read More...

Hollywood's go-to guy for superhero movies (at least as it pertains to the rumors dancing feverishly around fan's heads) Joseph Gordon-Levitt is out of the running for the lead in "Guardians of the Galaxy," MTV Splashpage reports...and is a "GO" for "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For."

According to Deadline, by accepting the role of "Johnny" in the "Sin City" sequel -- a new character specifically created for the movie -- Gordon-Levitt has basically passed on that of Star-Lord in "G0G." Read More...

The giant monster movie "Pacific Rim" will spawn some impressive toys and other collectibles, according to its director Guillermo del Toro. He recently confirmed on his message board that he would be working with companies NECA and Sideshow Collectibles on a whole variety of swag based on the eagerly-anticipated movie:

"NECA is doing toys and a ton of apparel / accessories. SIDESHOW is doing a couple of diorama statues and there are two downloadable games in progress. This plus the comics and book novelization and a few etc Read More...

Marvel Comics has just released a teaser for a possible new series, miniseries or Event written by Dan Slott and illustrated by Humberto Ramos called "Fired." Spider-Man is featured in the foreground while a not-so-happy Wolverine, Captain America, Spider-Woman, Thor, and Black Widow are in the background; perhaps the latter have just received their pinkslips.

Of course, this teaser comes off the major "Dying Wish" storyline that saw Peter Parker die and Spider-Man being "replaced" by Doctor Octopus. What further shenanigans can we expect? I guess we'll have to check it out in April, True Believers! Read More...

Look out, Adult Swim -- Fox has their own lineup of  "edgy" animated comedies. No, not the "Family Guy" stuff. The key word, as found in their press release, is "Alternative."

As of July 27, Fox will add a second "Animation Domination" late-night schedule on Saturday, featuring cartoons like "Axe Cop" (based on the cult Dark Horse comic book series) and "High School USA" by "Community" alum Dino Stamatopoulos. Dubbed "Animation Domination High-Def," the network described the initiative as follows: Read More...

While mergers between entertainment giants can be very fun to speculate about among fans -- rumors of intriguing crossovers and much awaited new movies -- they can also be a bit nerve-wracking on the personnel end. That's because when you smush several companies together, you often get what is called "redundancy" -- many people with the same job, now all under the same corporate umbrella.

This is not to say that recent rumors about Disney possibly tightening the belt on its bright red pair of pantaloons means anything on the comic book side of things. But how does the Internet meme go? I'm not saying it's aliens, but... Read More...

As a big fan of "The Office," I was pretty psyched a few years back about the news that John Krasinski was testing for the role of Captain America. Of course, that role eventually went to Chris Evans, and...well, I'm not complaining about that.

That said, reading in MTV Splashpage about Krasinski's name being "looked at" by Marvel Studios for the role of Star-Lord in the upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy" -- my old hopes were rekindled. Star-Lord is not exactly Captain America, but it would be nice to bring "The Office" star into the Marvel fold. Read More...

Malmey Studios is working on what might be the ultimate Aquaman costume, with the look and feel of a movie-quality outfit. Jeremey and Mallie from the studio are making a design that incorporates what they like from a number of classic and new designs:

The "Community" saga will continue...maybe.

I'll take a "maybe."

The NBC sitcom could go on for a fifth season, NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said at the winter Television Critics Association  press tour recently:

"Yes, absolutely. I'm always hopeful for a show to continue. We co-own it and I'd love nothing more than to see it continue." Read More...

Comic book writer and novelist Peter David has penned it all: from "The Incredible Hulk," to "Young Justice," "X-Factor," "Aquaman," and countless other titles.

Since he's given so much to us fans, now's the time to give a little bit back to him and his family when they're in need.

David suffered a stroke last week and, while valiantly pushing forward to recover, still has a long road to go. While David has medical insurance, his wife Kathleen points out that with something as serious as a stroke, there are a lot of other costs incurred:

"Even though we have health insurance we have co-pays and the like. And since this stroke fell at the end of the year, we have all the new co-pays to deal with (I can honestly see those of you who have had to deal with this nodding your heads). And there are things that the insurance company just won’t cover (more head nodding). So we are at the beginning of what is going to be a very expensive year even though we are only 4 days in."

Can you imagine "Harry Potter" creator J.K. Rowling penning a Doctor Who story? What a great meeting of fandoms that would be!

Well, it might happen -- at least, it's in the realm of possibility.

The site Hypable posits that Rowling might be among the “well-known children’s authors” to write a short "estory" in celebration of the Doctor's 50th anniversary this year. This supposition is based on a recent press release from the BBC announcing the project: Read More...

1980s-fave supeheroine Amethyst gets an anime-style makeover in this new short from DC Nation, debuting this Saturday morning on Cartoon Network at 10 AM EST/PST. Read More...

I thought that in commemoration of acclaimed fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien's birthday, it'd be fun to take a look at some of the Internet memes based on him and his creations. (Also, I communicate largely by Internet memes alone, though you've probably never heard of it.)

First let's look at memes based directly on Tolkien. The most popular in this category is:

He's cute; he's tough. He has dreamy eyes and a good bit of muscle-tone. He's roguish. And above all else, ladies and gentlemen — Joseph Gordon-Levitt can ACT!

But I still found it surprising that JGL is quite possibly being considered for the role of Star-Lord in Marvel's 2014 "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie.

MTV Splashpage, quoting Deadline, seems to indicate that this particular rumor may have a hair (one thin hair, mind you) more credibility than all the talk about Gordon-Levitt playing Batman. At the very least, the source cited says that JGL "is in the mix" for the role. Read More...
