Captain America: Civil War Will Be Funnier Than You’d Expect

If you read Marvel’s original Civil War storyline, you know that the tale is largely a depressing affair. With the government hunting down superhumans who haven’t registered, and with the Marvel heroes divided over the issue, there wasn’t a lot to laugh about. From what we saw in the first Captain America: Civil War trailer, the live action adaptation of the 2006 event also looks like it will be pretty serious, but not to worry, there will plenty of humorous moments as well. Following a special screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier yesterday, directors Joe and Anthony Russo described […]

Suicide Squad stays away from the “R” rating

Because Suicide Squad is so different from other comic book movies, there’s been a lot of speculation about whether or not it could be rated R. Given that villains are at the forefront, we can expect the protagonists to be much fiercer than the average heroes. Plus, director David Ayer’s resume consists mostly of fare for the 17-years-and-older set. However, it’s now official that Warner Bros. is aiming for a PG-13 rating with the 2016 blockbuster. When asked whether there had ever been consideration to go after an R rating forSuicide Squad, producer Charles Roven told Collider that it’s always […]

Pensacon 2015 Auction for Ben Woolf

Pensacon was a great event and on Sunday at the end of the convention, CEO Mike Ensley announced they would be auctioning off a 1 of a kind piece of art. So as my interest peak, I gathered myself right in the front of the group. Wanting to take a look at what was going to be auctioned and getting an assessment on how much it might go for. Artist/Illustrator David Bain (@baincomics) created this wonderful piece and it had only a run of 200 prints. What is even better is that print 3/200 was taken around and signed by EVERY guest […]
