THOR PRIVATE SCREENING
Thor Screening

On May 6, 2011, the wait for the release of Marvel Studios’ next film is finally over, as Thor unleashes the Odinson’s power on the silver screen for all to see. Marvel Comics’ Norse God of Thunder, Thor, comes to movie theaters this summer in this long-awaited film adaptation directed by acclaimed direct Kenneth Branagh (Henry V) and starring Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, and Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin.

The anticipation for the God of Thunder’s movie has been building steadily for months, beginning with a teaser at the end of Iron Man 2 and then building with the release of subsequent promos – including the attachment of the first trailer to The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and other popular films, a Super Bowl ad spot, and the more recent unveilings of the newest trailer and TV spot.

Vol 4.16

909-563-8751

It must be nice to be the movie-version of Thor. I mean, it’s hard enough being the god of thunder – keeping up with all of the storms around the world and bringing down the thunder when it’s necessary, PLUS paying attention to all of your worshipers and answering prayers and whatnot. BUT AT LEAST he doesn’t have to deal with all of the junk going on in FEAR ITSELF.
In fact, movie Thor gets thrown out of Asgard, home of the gods, BUT can now do whatever he wants! No more answering prayers. No more full-time thunder watch. Just hang out. Eat a burger. Go to a comic shop.
Lucky.
I’d be movie Thor any day. 

And don’t even get me started on movie Green Lantern and comic Green Lantern. Life sucks to be a comic book superhero.
At least they get cool costumes, eh?

Until next week…
Onward and Upward!

Been Better Comics


 

PHILADELPHIA – A new look and a new suit are in store for Ultimate Spider-Man, but the fate of Peter Parker — the awkward teenager who catches thieves like flies — is still a mystery.

Marvel Comics said Monday that Parker is taking off the Spidey costume for good as part of its “Death of Spider-Man” story in its Ultimate Comics imprint, but it has offered scant clues as to what ultimate fate may befall the high schooler who was bitten by a radioactive spider.

One thing is for certain: The iconic red-and-blue spider suit is history, replaced by a sleek, streamlined black outfit with a deep red spider on the chest and cobwebs on the shoulders and head.

Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso said that while Parker’s fate is still uncertain — “Let’s just say that Peter acts like the hero he is, and pays a price for it,” he said — there will be someone new slinging webs across Manhattan this summer after the current story arc written by Brian Michael Bendis with Mark Millar wraps up in “Ultimate Spider-Man” No. 160.

As for who that person may be, Alonso won’t say.

“We’re confident that once readers get to know the person who wears the new Spider-Man, they are going to fall in love,” he told The Associated Press. “This is a whole new voyage of self-discovery for the 21st century.”

Spider-Man fans need not worry because the Ultimate imprint is separate from Marvel’s bigger universe and whatever fate befalls Parker won’t count in the pages of the other series, including “Amazing Spider-Man.”

 

From Fangoria

Hopefully these striking long-exposure shots from one of SILENT HILL: REVELATION’s sets will have as much pop on screen.

SlashFilm brought attention to the images, which come from photographer Sara Collaton, shot late one evening in an amusement park/carnival set that will apparently see a good deal of screen time in the upcoming sequel. Achieved with long exposure, Collaton really captured some gorgeous and ultimately spooky images. Note: While there are no spoilers, the set could be something really stunning and atmospheric in the film, so if you’d like not to be privy, be warned.

Currently shooting in Toronto, SILENT HILL: REVELATION’s synopsis reads, “For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever.” The film stars Malcolm McDowell, Carrie-Anne Moss, Adelaide Clemens, Kit Harington and original SILENT HILL returnees Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean and Deborah Kara Unger.

For more of Collaton’s work, head over to her Flickr and Twitter, and for more creepy carnivals, check out this video documenting an abandoned Six Flags in New Orleans.

Personally I think it makes Ryan Reynolds head look way to big.  But that’s just me.

The premiere issue of an unforgettable new sci-fi epic that asks the question: what makes us human?

Enter the future where pollution, poverty, and armed conflict have been obliterated. Only off-world on the terraformed moons of distant planets does war still exist. Corporations command more power than governments and when they go to war, they use their own military force — armies composed of bio-engineered clones. For generations, these clones have not questioned why they live and die while their makers risk nothing. But now, one of their own will stand up against injustice, sparking a revolution that will change the entire galaxy, igniting INSURRECTION!
