You cannot afford this life sized Hulkbuster statue

If you've got a spare several thousands dollars lying around and believe you haven't shown off your Marvel fandom hard enough, I've got the solution you've been looking for. Beast Kingdom is selling a 300 cm (around 9-10 feet...

Newest Dead Rising: Watchtower trailer is pretty fun, actually

Starring the John Tucker Must Die kid, the AllState guy, and Rob Riggle as the best f**king Frank West possible, Dead Rising: Watchtower looks surprisingly good. With this trailer elaborating on the bits we got from the firs...

SNL proves Thor is the best Avenger

The first Avengers was a ground breaking comic book film in two ways. First, it capitalized on several years of buildup, and secondly, it was the first one to show the aftermath of the big battle. But will Avengers: Age of U...

Disney's live action Beauty and the Beast gets its Gaston and Beast

Live action Beauty and the Beast stories are a dime a dozen. Disney hopes you'll forget about all those other ones and support their latest live action take on one of their animated stories. Bill Condon (Chicago, Twilight: Br...

AMC and Regal are having a 29 hour Marvel movie marathon

As someone who covers films like these every day, I wonder how hard these are to track for someone else. If someone were trying to jump into Marvel films now, would they be able to just watch Avengers: Age of Ultron and still...

Here's a bunch of neat posters for The Peanuts Movie

The more I see of The Peanuts Movie, the more I fall in love with it. Everything just feels right. It's got a cast of unknown kids, looks fabulous, and I'll probably buy a few of these posters. I just dig that stark yellow. Check all the posters in the gallery below, and one parody one aping The Grand Budapest Hotel. The Peanuts Movie opens November 6th.

New Fantastic Four images are...pretty ordinary

I don't have a lot to say about the new Fantastic Four pictures from Empire. They exist, they're boring, whatever. I'd like to take this time, instead, to make a formal apology to Josh Trank and the rest of the cast and crew ...

Flix for Short: Power/Rangers, a super gritty MMPR fan film

Last year, around the time Saban and Lionsgate announced they were working on a new Power Rangers movie, I wrote up a few ways to do it properly. One of those suggestions is to keep the grimdark stuff as far away as possible...

One of the weirdest films coming out of Warner Bros and DC's upcoming film slate is definitely the supervillain team up film, Suicide Squad. Normally I'd make some joke about a bland white guy replacing a bland white guy...

4 Spider-Man villains we PROBABLY won't see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe photo
4 Spider-Man villains we PROBABLY won't see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
by Sean Walsh

Sony and Marvel deciding to share Spider-Man is beyond awesome. It's something I've always dreamed of, ever since Marvel Studios started making movies.

Now, one can presume that most if not all of Spidey's supporting cast and villains come along with this deal. He has some great villains, but for every Green Goblin (and there's like five), there's a Cardiac. There's plenty of Z-list bad guys in Spider-Man's rogues' galley, but in a world where Blizzard of all people appears not once but twice on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., maybe some of these goons will get their time in the sun.

That being said, let's take a look at four characters that are probably too ridiculous to make the cut.

Now here's a trailer our Matthew Razak, Bond aficionado and baby daddy, will definitely get a kick out of. When Guy Ritchie's attached to a project, such as The Man from U.N.C.L.E. adaptation of a 1960s spy TV show, you know...

Review: Fifty Shades of Grey photo
Review: Fifty Shades of Grey
by Nick Valdez

I should start this review by being as frank as possible. I'm not really sure who this review is for. With Fifty Shades of Grey, you'll fall into either one of two camps. You're either planning to see it (or have already seen it) regardless of what I'm going to say for the next couple of paragraphs, or you're going to avoid the film altogether thanks to the esoteric nature of its erotic subject matter. 

But for those of you who have fallen to the wayside and are a bit curious thanks to the shape this pop culture juggernaut has taken, don't follow up on that feeling. Because if you're willing to sit through this two hour slog without heeding my warning, you're also "fifty shades of f**ked up."

5 Reasons Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bad idea photo
5 Reasons Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bad idea
by Nick Valdez

Yesterday I wrote up a list of five reasons why Spider-Man joining the MCU was a good idea, and while I stand by my points, I couldn't shake the feeling in the back of my head. Cold and cynical as I am, it felt weird just accepting this hype train head on. You see, for as many reasons thinking it'd be a good idea, there are a strangely equal amount of reasons why it'd be a bad one. 

As more of the Sony/Marvel deal has been clarified with Sony indeed retaining majority creative control, and the two companies deciding to recast the titular character, I figured I should also go through five reasons why Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bad idea.
