  1. Netflix have done quite a few Marvel shows now, starting with Daredevil, then Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and now Iron Fist. Has anybody else been keeping up with them? Iron Fist is just out and I've found it okay so far, although apparently critics are slamming it. The main gripe appears to be about 'cultural appropriation', because apparently it's unacceptable for a white American man to learn martial arts... But anyway, I've been enjoying it as I have liked all the Netflix offerings for the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. This is all, of course, leading up to The Defenders which will see the continuity of each individual series link up.
  2. So this show piqued my interest on the X-men relation alone. Watched the first episode last week... and boy, this thing is so TRIPPY. And AWESOME. Like I don't even know what I am watching half of the time. I will look for a trailer or teaser... Here is one. I am sure there are others.
  3. Spider-man swings into the Marvel universe for the first time in his own film! I have to say, Tobey will always be my Spider-Man, but... this one looks pretty darn good!
  4. Can you imagine Luke Skywalker teaming up with the Avengers? Well Stan Lee can. In an interview with Big Issue the creator of many of Marvel's mightiest heroes appeared enthusiastic about the prospect of a crossover between the Star Wars and Marvel franchises. With Disney owning both universes it's not totally impossible, although it does seem an unlikely pairing. "Can you imagine Spider-Man saying 'may the Force be with you?' It may come to that!" Lee says, explaining that if there was a demand for it then the studio would find a way to make it work. Spider-Man recently rejoined his fellow Marvel characters under the Disney banner after previously being solely useable on the silver screen by Sony Pictures, and will appear in the upcoming movie Captain America: Civil War. With the Lucasfilm Story Group keeping a tight leash on the direction of Star Wars canon it's unlikely we will see such a crossover any time soon, although Marvel and Star Wars characters can be found mixing freely in the Disney Infinity video game.
  5. Marvel has revealed Star Wars: Shattered Empire, part of the recently announced Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection.Shattered Empire will explore the period of time between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, and the teaser image released by Marvel suggests that the story will pick up immediately after the Battle of Endor. Keen readers of the former expanded universe will remember that this moment in time was previously covered by Kathy Tyres Truce at Bakura. Nothing about the storyline of Shattered Empire has been revealed as yet, but it is not expected to bear any resemblance to the previous timeline for this era of galactic history. The new comic series will be Marvel's first entry into Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and is scheduled for release in September 2015. Click here to view the article

  7. The new comic series is set immediately after A New Hope and sees Leia finally get the chance to deal with the aftermath of the destruction of Alderaan and being the last Organa. The comic, written by Mark Waid and pencilled by Terry Dodson, sees Leia recruit a female X-wing pilot names Evaan and head out in search citizens of Alderaan who managed to avoid the devastating attack by the Death Star. Waid has stated that even if he hadn't been offered the job of writing this comic it would have been his first choice, as he loved how the character of Leia was set up as in a classic damsel in distress scenario, only to take charge of the situation. "That was so unique at the time, and sadly, it's still a little unique", he said during an interview at San Diego ComicCon last year. You can find out more and see a preview of the comic over at USA Today.

  9. It was only a matter of time before Marvel jumped back into Star Wars after the deal with Dark Horse Comics ended last year, and at Comic Con we have seen the reveal of not one but three new series, which will be the first contributions to Star Wars from Marvel since the 1980s. The first, simply titled Star Wars, seems to follow the heroes of the Rebel Alliance shortly after the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. It will hit shelves in January 2015, written by Jason Aaron, and illustrated by John Cassaday. Star Wars: Darth Vader will also follow the story past A New Hope, but this time focusing on the Dark Lord and his recovery from defeat after the destruction of the first Death Star. It is due out in February 2015, written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Salvador Larroca. Star Wars: Princess Leia is a miniseries following everybody's favourite princess as she laments the destruction of Alderaan and grows as a leader of the Rebellion. Due in March 2015, it will be written by Mark Waid with art by Terry Dodson.

  11. Despite recently announcing lay-offs from Disney Interactive Studios, Disney is reportedly pushing ahead with plans to release Disney Infinity toys for both the Star Wars and Marvel franchises. For those who have not played Disney Infinity, the game requires an "infinity base" connected to your console, on to which you place collectible toys and power "discs" that tell the game what to do, and drops your chosen character in an open world of missions to complete how you want. There are already a multitude of sets to chose from, including Toy Story, Pirates of the Caribbean, Nightmare Before Christmas, and many more. Infinity received mostly positive praise from critics, and has sold more than three million starter packs since it was released last year. The addition of Star Wars and Marvel will undoubtedly provide a hefty sales boost to an already popular product.

  13. In what is perhaps not the most totally unexpected move Disney is to bring Star Wars comics in-house to Marvel, bringing an end to a licencing deal that first started with 1989's Dark Empire. Dark Horse have been given until 2015 to wrap up their current productions before Marvel take control. Marvel themselves are no stranger to Star Wars, having published the first comics for the franchise from 1977 until 1986. Mark Richardson of Dark Horse remains upbeat despite the obvious disappointment of losing the Star Wars comics licence, and stated that they have many other exciting projects in the works. With the reorganisation of the Star Wars expanded universe, and the release of Episode VII and the other sequels in the next few years it is sure to be an interesting time for Marvel's new foray into a galaxy far far away.

  15. This will probably come as no surprise, as we have already been told of Disney's plan to release a new Star Wars movie every year, starting with Star Wars Episode VII and alternating between a Star Wars episode and a spin-off movie. We can also expect to see television series tie-ins and rumour has it that after a recent Marvel deal with Netflix, we could see another new Star Wars show head that way too. What else can we expect from this strategy? With Marvel so far, Disney has introduced characters and threads in stand-alone movies and sequels, then tied all the ends up to form a mega movie a-la Avengers. It seems highly likely that characters and storylines introduced in the Star Wars spin-offs and television shows will find their way into future instalments of the Star Wars saga, and if done correctly it could work well. But as with anything Star Wars, the potential for a fan backlash is always there if things go wrong!
