I was never a huge He-Man or She-Ra fan, folks. I was actually a teenager when the cartoons were coming out. I was quite familiar with the Mattel toys, though. My youngest brother, Michael, possessed any number of the action figures and accessories prior to the airing of the cartoons. So while some folks are consumed with nostalgia for this franchise, I am not one of them. I do, however, acknowledge the impact it had on fans. That and Castle Grayskull was kind of badass.

But anyway, we are here to discuss He-Man and She-Ra: A Complete Guide to the Classic Animated Adventures so keep on reading for the skinny on this amazing book!

Whenever a hero decides to pass the torch to another hero or just decide to live the rest of their lives as their alter-ego, it’s a pretty big thing. But what happens when there is no one to pick up the shield in your absence. That is going to be the big question going into the Marvel Cinematic Universe post-Captain America: Civil War as one of the most prominent members of the Avengers will no longer be recognized by the patriotic moniker.

Civil War directors Anthony and Joe Russo recently revealed the fate of Steve Rogers’ status as a hero, and what it may mean for the future of MCU. More on the story below, oh, and of course, spoilers below if you haven’t already seen it.

Doug Liman To Direct ‘Justice League Dark’; Will No Longer Direct ‘Gambit’
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Justice League Dark

Despite the mounting issues that Warner Bros.’ DCEU has, there are still many other projects to look forward to. Aside from the typical Wonder Woman, The Flash, Justice League, and standalone Batman film, there is also the long-gestating Justice League Dark. Yes, that project is still very much alive, and after spending some time in the development process the studio has found its director in Doug Liman.

If that sounds a bit strange to you, it is because it is. Liman was the director for Gambit, but given that film’s troubled production history, the Edge of Tomorrow director has moved on over to work on this dark supernatural DCEU film. More on the story below.

Interview: ‘Gotham’ Cinematographer Crescenzo Notarile
Olympus Athens   |  @   |  

Crescenzo Notarile Reflection Gotham

One of the most striking things about FOX’s hit series Gotham is how the scene settings are their own characters, enhancing the darkness of the story. Cinematographer Crescenzo Notarile embraced us in that darkness last season, and we certainly embraced him back. Fans are not the only ones to notice. Notarile is nominated for a Creative Arts Emmy in Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series for Episode 19’s “Azrael,” completely belonging in the stellar company of such shows as House of Cards, Homeland, and Game of Thrones.

I was lucky enough to speak to Notarile about the nomination, working with directors and actors, and some of our mutually favorite cast members.

Check out the interview and gorgeous image gallery here below.

eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Captain Marvel

At San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige revealed that Brie Larson was confirmed to play the title role of Captain Marvel. At the time, the film, written by Meg LaFavue and Nicole Perlman, didn’t have a director, but there was a sense that the origins film would be a “reinvention” in order to avoid any comparisons to Green Lantern. Now it looks like Marvel is closing in on a director.

According to new reports, they have set their sights on Niki Caro (Whale Rider, MacFarland, USA), Lesli Linka Glatter (TV’s Mad Men), and Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World). Check more on the story below.

Kingsway West #1
Written by Greg Pak
Art by Mirko Colak
Colors by Wil Quintana
Letters by Simon Bowland
Cover by Mirko Colak and Wil Quintana
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: August 24, 2016
Cover Price: $3.99

I’m a long time fan of westerns. I grew up watching The Lone Ranger, Rawhide, Gunsmoke, and the like. The concept of man living so close to nature and constantly at odds with both his environment and other humans appealed to me for some reason. Later, my attention turned to fantasy novels and role-playing games but the love of a good story set in the Old West was always there. So when someone comes along and mixes the two, I’m always down for a good a read. Kingsway West #1 is most definitely trying its best to find a place in my heart.

Read on and I’ll tell you why!
