Back in November 2019, Marvel Entertainment announced at the Tokyo Comic Con, that they would be collaborating with Tsuburaya Productions. The panel featured both, Marvel's editor-in-chief C.B. Cebulski and Tsuburaya Production's CEO Takayuki Tsukagoshi, as they announced the collaboration would be adapting the Ultra Series to comics. The comics intended would not necessarily adapt the various series/ films, but work to expand the productions and overarching lore.   Now, fast forward to yesterday at C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo). There at their panel, Marvel Entertainment announced the creative team behind their first "Ultra" title. Titled, "The Rise of Ultraman," the comic will revisit the original Ultraman from 1967. In the series, it will re-introduce the worl...

If you're one of the five people left that doesn't yet know the greatness that is Black Panther, Marvel Studios' latest entry in their indomitable Cinematic Universe, don't worry. Even the original Kamen Rider gives it his stamp of approval. Game respects game, apparently. The first of a long legacy of superheroes in the Land of the Rising Sun, actor and martial artist Fujioka Hiroshi battled the forces of evil in 1971 as the avenging cyborg hero Kamen Rider Ichigo, and once he had made Japan safe from villainous hands (for a while anyway) he set out on a quest to free the rest of the world from the tightening grip of super-terrorism. Which brings him, seemingly, on his quest to find the mysterious land of Wakanda. No foolin! Fujioka actually states that he went on a quest to find Black ...

In case word hasn't traveled to your neck of the interwebs just yet, there's somehow a Detective Pikachu movie getting made. What's more amazing is that this flick, based on the popular video game and anime series Pokemon, in which "pocket monsters" battle it out for sport, is starring Ryan Reynolds. As Pikachu. The cartoon rodent-looking thing that generally doesn't say anything but repetitive variations on the syllables of his own name. Even after weeks of information slowly dripping out of the tap on this production, we're still asking if there's any way this could be a really expensive mix-up. Are we getting punk'd? Is getting punk'd still a thing? This question and many others need answering as we countdown to the release on this alleged movie. Ryan Reynolds has been acting his p...

It's Hammer Time. Bringing the Joe Kelly graphic novel to life in splendid form, I Kill Giants summons up a gaggle of monsters ready to ransack the small town young Barbara Thorson (as in "Son of Thor") calls home. Not if she has anything to say about it. A coming-of-age tale set against the imaginative backdrop of monsters and magic, from Danish Academy Award-winning filmmaker Anders Walter, crafting this tale from a script penned by the comic series' original writer Joe Kelly. Any dedicated comic book fan is likely to have come across Kelly's words at some point in their time as readers, as his fingerprints are all over the scene. From Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, X-Men, and Deadpool over at Marvel, to Superman's Action Comics, Wonder Woman, and Justice League of America. If it flies...

Power Rangers Dino Thunder fans have something new to sonic scream about as actress Emma Lahana, best known to Power Rangers nerds as the high school rocker chick turned Yellow Ranger Kira Ford, has just landed a role on the upcoming Marvel series Cloak & Dagger. Disney's newly-branded cable television channel Freeform is set to launch this young adult-oriented superhero series based on the comic book of the same name. The singer/actress took to Twitter herself to relay the news, though we have yet to learn whether or not she'll be suiting up as another costumed heroine. Couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of the @Marvel universe! I can’t give you guys the details of my character just yet ;) but I hope you love her as much as I do. Cloak & Dagger follows the story of two te

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...

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 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....

Well, that was fast. It seems like it was just yesterday that I was whining about how I'll have to spend the next year with the costumes from Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, wondering if maybe the franchise was finally about to lose me. Fast-forwarding to the end of that particular race, my thoughts on both Ex-Aid and the Kamen Rider franchise have gone through a transformation about as drastic as any costumed do-gooder. If only every show we watched had this speedy a turnaround. In Kamen Rider Build, our new story commences in what appears almost to be the beginnings of a kind of post-apocalypse. A nation divided into three distinct sectors after a startling event in the aftermath of a fateful Mars exploration mission that brought back the mysterious Pandora Box, an item speculated to hold gr...
