Well, here's a twist. One place where you're almost sure not to find any patented daddy issues in the tokusatsu subgenre this year is the upcoming Hero Mama League, a wholly unexpected crossover event that gathers three heroines from Super Sentai television history, for a story about these superpowered ladies balancing their lives as world-saving badasses and the everyday challenges of being a mother. Yeah. This is happening. It comes to us via the Toei Tokusatsu Fan Club app, complimenting Toei Company's recent efforts to keep the spirit alive for the countless heroes running around their seemingly limitless multiverse of demons, aliens, and super-ninjas, righting wrongs long after their original shows leave the airwaves. As we gear up for the next entry into the new ongoing Space Sq...

What a time to be a Power Rangers fan. A certain number of years ago, the thought of more seasons of the show would have seemed farfetched, let alone the release of a feature-length film, a live streaming show, an addictive mobile game, and a successful line of ongoing comics to add on top of that. There's a lot to be thankful for in 2018, and the hits, it seems, just keep on coming. Now, as we rev up for the launch of the Power Rangers: Shattered Grid comic event, the main writer of the BOOM! Studios publication brings to us this live-action teaser short, starring none other than original Green Ranger Jason David Frank from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (and, like, fifty other seasons) as the villainous Lord Drakkon. Kyle Higgins has been putting in work these past couple years with B...

Another day, another crossover event in the land of cool guys who rarely look at explosions as their enemies pun all the way to fiery doom. This time, it's Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger who steps up to bat. The series about a crew of space-faring heroes fighting against the unscrupulous Jark Matter only recently ended its year-long run on television, but that's not stopping them from tearing it up with the best of them in the seemingly unending cycle of Toei Company's team-up extravaganzas. Interestingly enough, some members on this particular team already have some experience with their latest companions in intergalactic day-saving. It's Space Sheriff Gavan! And he's bringing his disparate team of tokusatsu randoms from the newly-created Space Squad along for the party, in the new Uchuu Sentai...

No Ranger is safe. Or so they tell us in the promos for the upcoming Power Rangers: Shattered Grid, the first mega-crossover event from the stellar comic book series published by BOOM! Studios. Based on the exploits of the Teenagers With Attitude from Angel Grove High and their many successors in the long-running superhero franchise, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Go Go Power Rangers have been showing us how it's done in the pages of their two ongoing comic series, outmatching the current TV series in quality at every turn. With Shattered Grid, the two share the grand canvas of this massive story that seeks to gather up Rangers from all over the television continuity for a crossover the likes of which fans have never seen. A trailer has been released featuring the voice of Green Ranger...

The Power Rangers comic book saga rolls on with BOOM! Studios' first major event, Power Rangers: Shattered Grid. In which, the beloved books in the series all link up as the villainous Lord Drakkon, ever the sore loser, means to do some damage to the multicolored heroes that defeated him once before. This time, it'll take more than the teenage saviors of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to send him packing. To that end, the ongoing series is recruiting an army of heroes from across the decades-spanning television franchise, many of whom longtime fans have been dying to see since the comic came into being. A breakdown of upcoming issues, along with some exceedingly dope artwork, awaits below. BOOM! sounded the alarm on the crossover extravaganza, putting together heroes from seasons that e...

Infini-T Force takes the next step in its continuing adventures, reintroducing a beloved character from the Science Ninja Team Gatchaman series, whose awesomeness can clearly only be contained by the sheer enormity of a movie theater screen. Tatsunoko Productions' television crossover event, combining the universes of four of their classic animated hero series into a single narrative, Infini-T Force has summoned up the lead characters of Gatchaman, Hurricane Polimar, Tekkaman, and Casshan, dropping them into a unified battle against evil, but until now, few of their former allies have been allowed more than a passing mention. Joe the Condor makes his triumphant return in 3D animated glory with the upcoming Infini-T Force: Farewell Gatchaman, My Friend. And with a title as ominous as t...

Kamen Rider tops the Japanese box office again, with this final phase of the Heisei Era putting a cap on the current chapter of their long-running superhero franchise. Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders came in at #1 on the charts last week, surpassing the success of last year's annual winter crossover event, proving the lone masked heroes (when brought together so as not to be quite so lone anymore) still have what it takes to capture an audience. As previously mentioned, the film gathers the title heroes from several past incarnations of the long and storied Rider saga, returning a number of lead stars (and multiple supporting actors) to our screens for one last hurrah (for now). Among them were Fukushi Sato as Gentaro aka high school student...

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...
