Ghost Rider

Two more live-action series based on Marvel characters have been announced. One is Ghost Rider, which obviously follows the popular character once played by Nicolas Cage in a pair of movies. But unlike the Cage movies, which followed the Johnny Blaze version of the title character, the TV series will follow the Robbie Reyes version of the character.

The other series is Helstrom based on the comic characters Daimon Hellstrom, also known as Son of Satan and Hellstorm, and his sister Satana, who will be called Ana on the show.

Ride with Norman Reedus

While it’s not really news, The Walking Dead and The Boondock Saints star Norman Reedus is grabbing some headlines for saying’s he’d be down for taking on a role that actually makes lots of sense for him: Johnny Blaze, better known as Ghost Rider. See what Reedus had to say below.

Reedus’s Walking Dead character, Daryl Dixon, often navigates the zombie apocalypse on a bike, and the actor even has a new reality series on AMC starting soon called Ride with Norman Reedus in which he, quite simply, travels around on a bike with friends in different locations (see a preview of the show below). So starring in a new Ghost Rider could be a perfect match.

Social Blend Podcast

Social BlendThe Social Blend podcast is back, and this week with a bit of a Geeks of Doom tang to it. Fellow Geeks of Doom contributor, and Associate Editor Hunter Camp aka MK2Fac3 joins us on the podcast this week – and we focus a lot on the latest details on Watchmen, Superman: The Man of Steel, Game of Thrones, and more.

Our first geek diversion in the show is looking at the new trailer for Iron Sky, which leads us into a whirlwind discussion of some of the work by Zack Snyder, including Sucker Punch and more. We debate the merits (or lack thereof) of the Before Watchmen prequel comic series from DC Comics.

Also we take a look at the latest news for Doctor Who Series 7, and the recent legal blues surrounding Ghost Rider.

Outside of our geek culture concentration, we also discuss some other news on the latest Social Blend, including Rick Santorum and the current Election news; and the recent passing of Whitney Houston.

Charitable Gift Ideas For Valentines Day

Today is Valentine’s Day and I, for one, really enjoy this holiday. I feel that any day that celebrates love is a good day. But, I know there are many people out there who hate it, including those who scream about “corporate greed!” and feel it’s a holiday created by greeting card companies to guilt men into spending their hard-earned cash on overpriced cards, chocolates, flowers, and jewelry. Well, I can’t argue with you there, as it is a big cash-in day for many industries (you Capitalists should love that).

So, for those of you who don’t want to give your money to corporate fat-cats or go along with the obligatory overpriced flowers and candy routine, then here’s some last-minute charitable gifts you can give — because let’s face it, if you’ve been going on all year about how Valentine’s Day sucks, then most likely haven’t gotten your sweetie a gift yet. But hey, just because you’re a non-conformist who hates sappy holidays doesn’t mean you can’t show the love, too, and not just for your partner, but for anyone in your life you care about. And, wouldn’t giving to charity on Valentine’s Day be a nice finger in the face to materialism? Yeah, go for it!

Here’s our list of 5 Charitable Last-Minute Gift Ideas For Valentine’s Day.

Ghost Rider Co-Creator Loses Lawsuit; Ordered To Pay Marvel $17K

Ghost Rider by Gary Friedrich

Gary Friedrich, co-creator of the Marvel Comics character Ghost Rider, was ordered to pay the publishing company $17,000 this week in a counter-suit resulting from an intellectual property claim against the publisher.

This is a really messy case, that no matter how you look at it it’s going to be terrible and ugly, but before we get into all of that, here’s a little backstory on the case. Some of this information is cloudy, but it seems like the counter-suit has been won by Marvel, but they’re offering to drop that lawsuit if Friedrich settles to new arrangements made by the publishing company. Not everything is clear, and as of writing this article, I don’t have access to the court documents and all the information needed, but the details are truly irrelevant if you take the rest of the situation into consideration.

Talk about some busted buzz building.

For all intents and purposes, the premiere of Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance at this year’s Butt-Numb-A-Thon was supposed to get the geek oriented film in front of those who would almost blindly love it. However, it did anything but that.

But now, in the face of all that, we get a new trailer for the film, which doesn’t look as awful as those reviews would have one think. Watch the trailer here below.

Marvel Entertainment

It has been a bad couple of days if you are a low-selling Marvel comic, as the company put the axe to a couple of series, while two others were brought to their planned conclusion. Word came down Tuesday that Marvel was canceling X-23, the story of the young, female clone of Wolverine, as written by Marjorie Liu. That same day, word came down that Jason Aaron’s PunisherMax would be coming to an end, with the rumor originally being that the series was canceled with issue #22. However, Aaron revealed via Twitter that the series was coming to the ending he had planned for the book, and that it was just coming to an end, not actually canceled.

Then on Wednesday, we found out two more series would be coming to an end, with the cancellation of Rob William’s Ghost Rider, and the ending of Black Panther: The Deadliest Man Alive (formerly BP: The Man Without Fear, and even more formerly Daredevil: The Man Without Fear). Again, many assumed Black Panther had been canceled, however, regular artist Francesco Francavilla said, also via twitter, that the series hadn’t been canceled, it was just coming to an end.

Geeks of Doom vs. New York Comic Con 2011

Despite being a sequel to one of the worst films to come out of the recent golden age of comic book films, Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance has a ton going for it. Be it the creative team of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank) being behind the camera, or Nicolas Cage, Cirian Hinds, and Idris Elba being in front of it, this film has all the makings of an impressive step up.

And at this the 2011 New York Comic-Con this weekend, those in attendance at the film’s panel got to see not only on some great, if not all that new, footage, but also a really great panel featuring the two aforementioned filmmakers.

Watch Now: ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’ Teaser Trailer

BAADASSSSS!   |  
space

The first trailer for the upcoming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance has been released. You can check it out here below this article.

The film marks the first time star Nicolas Cage has played the iconic Marvel Comics hero since 2007’s Ghost Rider, Mark Steven Johnson’s much-derided and reviled cinematic adaptation of the character that overcame near-universal derision to become a modest box office hit. This time around Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the deranged masterminds of the Crank series as well as Gamer (and the screenwriters of last year’s atrocious Jonah Hex movie, but that film underwent so many rewrites and reshoots prior to its release that it’s doubtful much of their original script even made it into the final product), are assuming directing duties. Television writers Scott M. Gimple and Seth Hoffman (House, Flash Forward) make their feature screenwriting debut based on an original story by David S. Goyer (Blade, Batman Begins) that is rumored to have been taken from an unproduced script Goyer wrote for the first Ghost Rider film.

It’s not rare for a filmmaker to somehow find work even after failing to make a critically adored film. Mark Steven Johnson is that very filmmaker. Best known for helming films like Daredevil and of course, the masterpiece known as Ghost Rider, Johnson is the poster boy for directors making the film world a lot less interesting.

And now, according to Heat Vision, he’s got a brand new project.The outlet reports that Johnson will helm the new thriller, Autobahn, for Inferno Entertainment. The script is penned by Greg Russo, and follows the story of “a washed-up ex-Formula One driver who wakes up trapped inside a BMW on the side of the Autobahn, Germany’s famed high-speed roadway, which has no general speed limit. He answers a phone ringing in the glove box, only to be told that he has 90 minutes to deliver the bomb-rigged car to a target or his wife and daughter will be killed.”
