'Ant-Man' Press Copies went out and here are SOME of the reviews!



The first round of Ant-Man's press copies went out and here are some of the reviews. There's also a link to a (very) spoiler-y article about what is in the TWO end credit scenes.

New Ghostbusters costumes revealed


If you haven't been reading it already, you should check out IDW's various Ghostbusters comics. They're true to the spirit (no pun intended) of the original movie, and a lot of fun. In fact, they just started a miniseries that sees the live-action Ghostbusters meet their cartoon counterparts. Come on in and we'll help you find some fun things to read.

Never give up - everybody gets rejected sometimes!

Today he's one of the heads of DC Comics. But back in the '80s? Not so much:


Man, I'd love to see the pages he submitted to get that rejection!

James Gunn Reveals 'Guardians' 2 Title


So, we all already know that there's going to be a Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but we hadn't yet heard of a title. James Gunn, the director, revealed on Twitter that the title for the second Guardians movie will be Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. 

If you saw the first movie it should be clear that the title is a play on the movie's soundtrack title: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 and it's assumed the sequel's soundtrack will be volume two, though that is yet to be confirmed.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled for release May 5, 2017, so you all have plenty of time to speculate!

Ladies and gentlemen, your new Spider-Man is...


...Tom Holland! Someone you've never heard of! That's okay, though: you'd never heard of half the actors in X-Men before that opened, either, and it turned out pretty well.

So now we just play the waiting game, twiddling our thumbs until 2017 to see how he does. (The official announcement neither confirms nor denies that Peter will appear in Captain America: Civil War.)
