The interwebs can be a dark and tumultuous place, but every once in a while, you can find something to make you smile. Case in point: This little diddy from Youtuber Juan Ignacio Monzon, who provides a marvelous mash-up of two heroes who bear the same name (and a bit more). I'm speaking, of course, of Spider-Man. The classic Marvel Comics superhero brought to life (for, like, the fifth time) in 2017's blockbuster film Spider-Man: Homecoming, starring Tom Holland as the titular high school crimefighter. He comes to us years after another version of the red-and-blue hero swung onto our screens: the 1978 television series Spider-Man (or Supaidaman, if you prefer), starring Todo Shinji as an entirely different alter-ego to the one Marvel readers were used to at the time. Following a landm...

Ah, hell. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry decided to drop trailers for their mega-blockbuster these past two weeks. Must be another Star Wars December. This time, it's Ernest Cline's heavyweight pop culture champion Ready Player One, the bestselling book given life via the man who helped generate a large part of the very fan fervor his sci-fi adventure sought to invoke - famed director Steven Spielberg. And with this second extended look at the film, we have a ton of new iconic characters, images, and music cues to add to the growing pile that has nerds of all ages adjusting in their seats. Among these totemic titans is the anime super-robot tearing up the skies in a battle for the Oasis. No, it's not Voltron, like so many have misidentified him as. And no, it's not the Iron Giant, though he ...

Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War promises to be the largest collection of iconic, larger-than-life heroes the landscape of live-action cinema has ever seen. But what if things had been just a little bit different? What if the world needed saving not by the cape-flapping, shield-tossing likes of the Avengers, but by some other Disney icons? We all know their names. We hear their footsteps and tremble. Straight out of the vault, they've begun their march toward victory against the terror of Thanos and his horde of deadly minions. It's the Walt Disney cartoons! And they're here to do some avenging. For the five people left alive who haven't seen it, the Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropped last week and quickly broke records on streaming giant Youtube for the most views in the sh...

The Power Rangers brand is having something of a silent renaissance of late. While the television series has gone on for years, almost invisible to most adults yet never off the airwaves with new episodes for more than a single year since the franchise's start in the early 90s, the Rangers have branched out considerably to other entertainment mediums, often with strong results. The Teenagers With Attitude, and the many young adults that launched from their footsteps in the years after Angel Grove was a mere glimmer in their visors' display panel, dominated the attention of many curious watchers this year, whether it be on our phones with games like Power Rangers Legacy Wars, or on the big screen with the franchise's first feature-length movie in decades. There's also Power Rangers Hyp...

The Ultraman franchise continues flying to new heights this season, as Tsuburaya Productions announces the arrival of the first animated title for the long-running superhero brand since 1980. We recently discussed possibilities for the mysterious countdown leading up to this announcement, courtesy of the eponymous manga series published in the pages of Shogakukan's Monthly Hero magazine, guessing (among other things) that there could be an anime adaptation of the popular comic in our future. And now, we have the first official teaser video to confirm it. Beginning in 1966, the giant monster-fighting Ultraman wowed audiences with its live-action special effects wizardry and imaginative action, giving birth to a lineage that endures to this day, where dozens of new entries into the saga...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to crack in two, as the first official trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has just dropped, and with it, a cavalcade of exciting revelations. The nineteenth feature film in the expansive interconnected comic book landscape that is the MCU promises their biggest adventure yet, and it's all hands on deck as the heroes from every corner of this colorful universe are showing up to lend a hand. After this (and the next Avengers film, which serves as a direct follow-up to Infinity War), Marvel Studios claims the world they've built up in the years since 2008's humble hit Iron Man will be changed forever. I'll believe that when I see it, but until then, we can feast our eyes on one of the biggest collection of superheroes ever brought to the big screen....

As the Ultraman Geed television series soars closer to its final episode, its young star Tatsuomi Hamada has already found his next big gig in the new Mob Psycho 100. This live-action adaptation of the eponymous manga and anime sees title character Mob forced to unleash his considerable psychic powers, to what may be disastrous effects on the fragile world around him. A glimpse into that world, which already appears to be crumbling under the weight of some pretty immense psionic energy, can be found in this newly-released poster. As previously reported, Tatsuomi is joined by his series director from Ultraman Geed, Sakamoto Koichi, whose list of credits in the world of live-action special effects is as long as Geed's finisher beam, including such illustrious titles as Power Rangers, Su...
