Hello, I’m Will. I’m new here. Today I will be talking about one of my favorite comic books, Spirits of Vengeance #13. Not because it’s exceptionally good or popular, but because it left an impression on little 11 year old me. So considering it is one of a handful of issues I’ve kept from back then I think it’s pretty freaking awesome. I won’t be talking about the writer (Howard Mackie) or the artist (Adam Kubert). Not because they aren’t important (they’re both superbly talented individuals), but because I want to focus on this specific issue and my recollection of being the 11 year old boy that read it for the first time.

Sony Pictures Animation has officially confirmed today that their upcoming animated “Spider-Man” movie will focus on fan-favorite character, Miles Morales!

Created by Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli, the character has some of the same powers as the original Spider-Man but is also capable of briefly turning invisible and even a venom sting that can paralyze his foes.

“21 Jump Street” and “The LEGO Movie” filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller are set to write the script and produce the film which will be directed by Bob Persichetti (“The Little Prince”) and Peter Ramsey (“Rise of the Guardians”).

The animated “Spider-Man” film hits cinemas on December 21st 2018.

In this episode AJ and Anthony get into some deep discussion regarding the latest news.

Also, the guys review Underworld: Blood Wars.

Constant Readers,

Before I begin, I feel I owe you guys an explanation for my absence. Real life has thrown a number of curveballs my way. I began my college career in August as a 40-year-old freshman. I learned that I hate Algebra and don’t quite see the point of it in day-to-day life. I do not care what ‘X’ is, nor do I wonder where he went. (He could be in Calcutta for all I care.) Needless to say, I dropped that class. I also took Freshman Composition, where I really excelled and finished with an ‘A’. This pleased me to no end. I am already registered for Spring and am mostly ready to go, waiting on a few supplies to arrive in my mailbox. Continue reading

The comic universe created by artist Rob Liefeld is headed to the big screen.


Producer Graham King, Chinese outfit Fundamental Films and writer-producer Akiva Goldsman are partnering to create a film franchise out of the comic creations.

King and Fundamental have secured the film rights to Liefeld’s Extreme Universe, which King and Goldsman will develop. The duo plan to set up a writers’ room to brainstorm, which Goldsman, who has shepherded similar processes for the Transformers and Hasbro film universes, will oversee. Continue reading

Take On Me

We all remember our first don’t we?  The first time we see them on screen.  The first time we hang their poster on the wall.  The first time we watch another movie just because they are in it.  Our first celebrity crush.  Well, she was mine.

I first “met” Carrie Fisher in the iconic role of Princess Leia in Star Wars when it came out in 1977.  I was only 4 at the time but I knew then that we had something special.  The way she lit up the screen was magical for me.

I followed her on to some of the other films she was in.  Always looking out for that smile and twinkle in her eye.  I was surprised by her cameos and even more impressed by her writing.  And when she made her big comeback, there was no one more excited than me.

It now saddens me that she has passed.  She had managed to work her way into the lives of millions of fans throughout the world.  We will miss you Carrie.  We will miss your candor and honesty.  But most of all, we will miss your smile.

Carrie Fisher is survived by her mother, Debbie Reynolds and daughter, Billie Lourd.  We here at Forbidden Panel send them and her friends and family and her millions of fans our condolences.
