Review: BIG HERO 6

Image
Back in 2014, Walt Disney Animation Studios was hot off their 2013 mega-hit Frozen, a film so huge that it is still fresh inside our heads today. So there was a lot of curiosity surrounding the next film from the famed animated studio entitled Big Hero 6. The film is loosely based around a little-known Marvel comic that debuted in 1998, but not even massive Marvel comics fan were that familiar with the characters.

Sometimes taking a lot of liberties with your source material can go south extremely fast, but often times it can benefit big time. That's the case with Big Hero 6. The film follows 14-year-old child prodigy Hiro Hamada (voiced by Titans star Ryan Potter) who after suffering a personal tragedy befriends his older brother's nursing robot called Baymax (voiced by 30 Rock's Scott Adsit) and attempts to turn the cute marshmallow-like robot into a crime-fighting hero. The two, along with Hiro's friends, team up and decide to become a team of superheroes.

Retrospective: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN

Image
Spider-Man is one of the most popular characters in all of fiction. He’s the mascot of Marvel and a part of the big three superheroes, alongside both Batman and Superman. So, like Superman and Batman, he had an amazing, no spectacular animated series. We’ve talked about Batman: The Animated Series and touched on Superman: The Animated Series so now let's focus on our favorite teen hero. We’ll be taking a look back at the Spectacular Spider-Man.

Spectacular focus on Peter Parker’s life in high school. He’s been Spider-Man for about six months at the start of the first episode. He’s not in his prime yet, but he’s also not a rookie. Voiced by the talented Josh Keaton, Peter needs to help his aunt pay her bills, intern at Dr. Conner’s lab, and deal with high school love drama all while being your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. The show is classic Spidey. It has a balance of humor and action that works perfectly with the character. It takes story beats from the comics and makes it i…

PLASTIC MAN Movie Enters Development (Again) at Warner Bros.

Image
Back in the 1990s, Warner Bros. began to develop a movie starring DC superhero Plastic Man. The project was revived a decade later, with a planned film starring Keanu Reeves and directed by the Wachowskis. Obviously, that never happened. But it looks like Patrick "Eel" O'Brian is being given another shot.

A Plastic Man movie is now in development at WB and DC Films. It is being written by up-and-coming scribe Amanda Idoko, who was hired by the studio after searching for half a year. No director is hired yet. While plot details are being kept under wraps, the film will reportedly stay true to the comedic tone of the comics. This move comes as DC is shifting towards an overall lighter tone to its movies.

While Plastic Man has appeared in various animated movies and shows over the years, this will mark the character's live action debut. DC has recently put a lot of movies into development, and it's unclear how many of them will actually be made in the near future. …

Review: MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN (PS4)

Image
Marvel's Spider-Man was our most anticipated game of the year. We’ve professed our love for the Batman Arkham series many times, and our passion for Spider-Man even more. So, what if I told you that Marvel's Spider-Man was the perfect marriage between the two? Let’s talk some Spider-Man.

Insomniac took Spider-Man in a slightly different direction than we’ve seen lately. We have Peter Parker who is in his prime; a 23-year-old college graduate, who’s long past taking selfies for the newspaper. This Peter has been Spidey for almost 10 years, he’s good at, which makes for fantastic gameplay. Swinging is like a dream. Combat takes some getting used to, you’ll die a lot, but once you learn how to use focus and Spidey sense, you’ll be good. Making Spider-Man older means we skip the learning curb and go straight into the action, and boy does it have action.

The story is relatively simple. Peter’s big bads break out of the Raft, while two new baddies emerge out of the shadows. He has t…

FEATURE: 10 Characters We Want to See on The CW's BATWOMAN

Image
Batwoman is the latest major DC hero to join The CW's Arrowverse. After her debut in the "Elseworlds" crossover event, Ruby Rose's Kate Kane is expected to return in her own solo series. Not much is known about the potential show, except that it would follow Batwoman's adventures in Gotham.
Every Arrowverse show has featured plenty of iconic DC heroes, and it is only natural for Batwoman to follow suit. Here, we list 10 characters that we hope to see in the spinoff series.
Anarky
Lonnie Machin was a recurring villain on Arrow's fourth season, originally a henchman for Damien Darhk and later an enemy of both him and Green Arrow. We last saw Machin in the season five premiere, where he was beaten by Green Arrow and imprisoned. It would be cool to see him return, but how about on another series? Having him pop up on Batwoman would be neat, as it would add another Arrowverse connection. Not to mention, Anarky is better known as a Batman villain, so having him tra…

Black Panther has been nominated for the Best Motion Picture - Drama award. This is the first superhero movie in history to ever get a nod in that category.

New MEN IN BLACK Movie Gets a Title and Logo

Image
Sony is heading to Brazil Comic-Con (CCXP) to promote upcoming movies on Saturday. Among them is the new Men in Black, which stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson as two new MIB agents. Now, the film has an official title and logo.

First spotted by Collider on CCXP and later confirmed by Sony, the new movie is titled Men in Black International. The film's social media pages have launched, and they include a shiny new logo.


Men in Black International is said to be a global adventure taking our agents around the world, so the subtitle makes sense. This also makes it the first movie to have a subtitle and not a number in the title, setting it even further apart from the original trilogy.

Stay tuned for more news as we have it. Men in Black International hits theaters on June 14th, 2019.
