Civil War II Is Ruining Captain Marvel

Civil War II has Marvel’s superheroes fighting each other again; this time, it’s over whether it’s better to try and stop evil when you have foreknowledge in advance. Captain Marvel is leading the charge on predictive justice and it’s a stance that’s making the heroine almost totally unlikable.


A Comic Artist Finds Reality Is Not What It Seems In Live-Action/Animation Hybrid Zoom

Video: A comic-book artist draws her dream man, a hotshot film director, who comes alive in animated form as he’s shooting his new movie, an artsy drama about a novelist whose latest project is about a comic-book artist. All three stories intertwine and reality collapses in on itsel in Zoom.

The laughter I heard the most was the excited cackle that came up when he discussed his new plans for his signature creation.


Chadwick Boseman Explains Why The Black Panther Is Not The Magical Negro Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Chadwick Boseman thought he already had a sense of how significant the Black Panther is to the fans who love him. But it wasn’t until Saturday afternoon, while he was on stage at the Marvel Studios panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, that he got hit with the full weight of the love and enthusiasm surrounding T’Challa. Those same fans are trying to help Boseman embody the role in the best way possible.


Arrow Is Adding One Of DC's Weirdest Vigilantes For Season Five

Ragman is coming to Arrow. Yes, Ragman! The CW/DC universe’s propensity for getting delightfully all-in on as much DC Comics history they can get their hands on is well known, but even then, this is a surprise.

Fun fact about the recently announced, 4m tall statue of the Brooklyn’s favourite (fictional son): It’s not actually in Brooklyn at the moment.
