‘Cloak & Dagger’ Trailer: Teen-Friendly Show With A Marvel Superhero Hook
eelyajekiM   |  

Cloak & Dagger

Marvel Entertainment’s TV series aren’t exactly quality television. They’re pure escapism. The best way to describe these shows is cheesy, substandard, but somehow hypnotic and fun. That’s all before the fatigue starts to set in. That being said, it’s hard to deny the success of these shows with their being renewed for new seasons.

But now they are ready to dive into young adult territory with Cloak & Dagger. The new show will center on two teenage runaways who discover they have a mysterious connection to each other that allows them to access their superhuman powers. A trailer for the new show has been released, and you can check it out below.

DVD Review: Marvel Knights: Wolverine Origin
Waerloga69   |  

Wolverine OriginMarvel Knights: Wolverine Origin
DVD
Based on the comic written by Paul Jenkins
Screenplay adapted by Joe Quesada, Paul Jenkins and Bill Jemas
Original Art by Andy Kubert and Richard Isanove
Directed by Carl Upsdell
Shout! Factory
Rated R | 66 Minutes
Release Date: July 9, 2013

Many of you may not of heard of this new comic format. It’s referred to as a motion comic. Essentially it’s a comic or graphic novel that is adapted to film by basically dissecting each panel and moving pieces of it to create the illusion of action. It is probably pretty painstaking work since we don’t see too much of it. Marvel Knights: Wolverine Origin is the first of these I have seen from Marvel, though I do own one from another comic company.

Being referred to as “the greatest story never told” is a tough bill, but ever since being introduced in 1975, Wolverine has been one of the most enigmatic comic characters around. Whereas other heroes had their backstories filled in fairly well, poor Logan’s has long remained a mystery. Until Paul Jenkins wrote the graphic novel Wolverine Origin and revealed the past for all to see, that is. I must admit, I remember reading the story back in 2009 and pretty much liking it. There were still some obvious gaps that I figured were there to create places to add in new stories later. Remembering all of this I went into the viewing of this motion comic with a pretty open mind.

DVD Review: Iron Man: Rise Of The Technovore

Iron Man: Rise Of The TechnovoreIron Man: Rise Of The Technovore
Blu-ray | DVD | Instant Video
Directed by Hiroshi Hamazaki
Starring Norman Reedus, Matthew Mercer, Eric Bauza
Marvel Entertainment/Sony Pictures/Madhouse Studios
Release Date: April 16, 2013

Suffice to say that I am an Iron Man fan. Got the iconic character tattooed to my back years ago (along with a couple dozen others) and I buy almost as much Shellhead merchandise as I do Caped Crusader stuff. So yeah, I asked to review Iron Man: Rise Of The Technovore as soon as it was offered up. I did, after all, pretty much like the Marvel Anime: Iron Man- The Complete Series that I reviewed here a while back. So I naturally thought it would be a fun watch. And it’s totally like I jinx myself every time I think like that, because “fun” didn’t even get near this mess.

To be honest, Iron Man: ROTT was well animated, there was nothing with which I could find a complaint (other than words not syncing with lip movements). And it wasn’t the voice actors that made me unhappy as they were okay for the most part, though the trademark Tony Stark glibness wasn’t really to be found here. No, I’m going to just have to say it was because the main story made almost no sense. Honestly, it was ridiculous at the very least and the iconic characters were not represented well at all.

More Iron Man Anime On The Way With ‘Iron Man: Rise of Technovore’
Culturesmash   |  

Iron Man Anime Banner

Love it or hate it, there’s more anime coming to the Marvel universe as Marvel and Sony Pictures Entertainment have announced Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, a feature-length film slated for release on DVD in Spring 2013. The story will be written by Brandon Auman, who previously worked on Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Iron Man Armored Adventures. The film is produced by Madhouse.

Iron Man: Rise of Technovore focuses on a confrontation between Iron Man and Ezekiel Stane, who develops new bio-technology that apparently outclasses the Iron Man armor. After Stane commits a terrorist attack and sets Tony up to take the fall, Iron Man must evade S.H.I.E.L.D. and find a way to clear his name.

DVD Review: Marvel Anime: Iron Man – Complete Series

Iron Man: The Animated Series (Anime)Marvel Anime: Iron Man – Complete Series
DVD
Directed by Yuzo Sato
Written by Warren Ellis
Marvel Entertainment/Sony Pictures
Release Date: April 24, 2012

Okay, a little honesty here. I thought I had written this like eight weeks ago, but when I went to go link to it, I realized that it must have been one of the reviews I had on my tablet when my it died. So here is my very late review of this two-disc Marvel Anime: Iron Man – Complete Series. It was quite different from other Iron Man cartoons I have seen in the past.

The series itself is very typical of Japanese anime. If you are a fan of this style, then you know what I mean when I say it is very much eye candy. The characters are very animated (no pun intended), almost to the point of ridiculousness at times, actually. But again, this is common for anime. Not that I hate it or anything, but I don’t really like the style. I grew up watching Starblazers and G-Force, so the amalgamated stylings of “Japanimation” are not unknown to me. There just seems to be a certain slickness to it that sets modern anime apart from other cartoon styles.

Hi-Res Captain America & Thor Images
Tom Cheredar   |  

Captain America: The First AvengerMarvel Entertainment Studios just released some high resolution images from their next two big budget films: Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger.

The image of a very angry Thor, played by actor Chris Hemsworth, is now large enough for all you creative fanboy types to cut up into desktop wallpapers and such.

The two photo stills of Captain America (Chris Evans) follow suit, showing off the character’s costume in detail.

I’m still kind of peeved that there are wings painted on the side of Cap’s helmet instead of the actual tiny wings that he has in the comic books. I’ll reserve further judgment for the comment section.

Check out the images here below.
