ICYMI: Marvel is Taking Over the Cinematic World!

If you weren’t sure before, you can definitely be certain now, Marvel is getting the full Disney treatment. At yesterday’s #MarvelEvent they announced dates and updates for several new releases, so here’s a quick recap of the movies you should be planning your life around for the next 4 years:


They’ve announced the casting, so I can finally let myself believe that this movie is really happening. Chadwick Boseman (Jackie Robinson + James Brown actor) is assuming the title with the movie to be released November 3, 2017. Luckily for us we don’t have to wait until then to see him as he’ll be making an appearance in the next Captain America well before that. Speaking of which…Captain America: Civil War releases May 6, 2016!

Have You Noticed NY Comic Con is just like Fashion Week!?

New York Comic Con has come and gone! *Someone cue the Back to Reality by En Vogue* Over this past weekend, while trekking to and from the Jacob Javits center, there was one thought that kept popping into my head: this is like Fashion Week for geeks! Now before you go calling Anna Wintour on me, let me explain. I realize there aren’t too many of us that look forward to (and lose their minds at) both events so let me give you my personal breakdown:

1. There’s new product unveilings: Where Comic Con lacks in runways it more than makes up for in panels where industry leaders announce upcoming product releases and updates. Take for instance the Streetfighter’s 25th Anniversary panel, where Yoshinori Ono announced his plan to revive the beloved 90’s classic, Darkstalkers, for a possible release in Spring ’13 entitled Darkstalkers Resurrection! (Seriously when the trailer for the new Darkstalkers came on we all, including me, lost our minds!) Not to mention Marvel’s announcement of Agent Coulson‘s return to S.H.I.E.L.D. in the upcoming ABC show of the same name (no word on how they’ll explain his return from the dead) + the (re)launch of a slew of comic titles including Secret Avengers, Young Avengers and the (obviously) Hunger Games inspired Avengers Arena.

Can NOT wait for 2013!

Marvel Comics Shows Its Support for Gay Marriage!

Truth be told my comic book attention has been mainly on the Avengers vs. Xmen series as of late, but a different series just recaptured my attention with it’s newest issue. As if I wasn’t already a proud Marvel girl, my loyalty was only reaffirmed yesterday when my stepfather came home with this:

Avengers VS. X-Men is Here!!

Today is a happy day ya’ll! See I bought a new Avengers comic a few weeks ago and found a nice surprise in the back page ad:


For those of you who don’t know I grew up an X-Men fan, and now that the Avengers are coming out (and on my birthday no less) it’s only fitting that I read this series too. So with today being the release of the series- it was pushed back a tad-it’s a happy day for all!

*Just had a Lightbulb idea as I was writing this: This series should totally be developed into a movie!*

Got an extra treat for myself at the comic book store: the ever elusive Yoda for my Star Wars collection and Iron Man for my desk😀


I Released My Inner Geek!

You would think as much as I’ve loved comics books, cartoons and video games my entire life that I would’ve been to comic con before. Sadly though, I haven’t before last weekend and I inadvertently turned my experience into a 3-day love affair with the place! I missed the Avengers panel😦 but I did meet a few celebs, took a ton of great pics and got some cool takeaways including a plethora of branded t-shirts.

Coolest poster ever
