Avengers Infinity War: Day One Documentary.


ne2lg0p3c84v53_1_b

To the closer followers of Marvel, and the mechanics behind their super hero films, Christmas came early last night when Marvel released a short “documentary” about Avengers Infinity War.  The video is quite informative, and gives the laymen some news they will be excited about, and the comic book connoisseur some things to be excited about.  (Why doesn’t Thor have his Hammer, and are Tony’s new suits automated, or is building them for himself.)  Regardless of how deep movie goers get into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the video below provides a very interesting look into the 3rd Avengers installment.

Marvel & D.C… Not So Different After All?

Marvel and DC have had some similar characters cross the pages of their legendary comics, but some of those similarities were never apparent until we saw Darren Rawlings collections of Marvel, and DC characters “hanging out”.  Check the method.  The similarities are uncanny.

Thanos Gets His Own Comic.


Thanos’ cameo at the end of “Marvel’s The Avengers” was tragically brief, but it’s the start of some beautiful things for the purple-skinned death-worshiper. It’s currently rumored that he’ll have a major role to play in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie, and will appear again in the subsequent “Avengers” sequel. But if that’s far too long for you to wait for your next Thanos fix, never fear: he’s getting his own comic book to help pass the time!

“Hell Yeah” writer Joe Keatinge and “Thor” artist Richard Elson are teaming together for “Thanos: Son of Titan,” a five-issue Marvel Comics miniseries launching in October. According to Keatinge, “Son of Titan” is all about “how Thanos came to be” — the perfect entry point for folks who aren’t already familiar with Thanos’ history at Marvel.

“I don’t go Forrest Gump on it, but aspects of the Marvel Universe have been born that directly turn Thanos into who he is,” Keatinge told USA Today’s Brian Truitt. “He ends up at the point where he’s worshiping Death and destroying universes. How do you get to that head space where you’re like, ‘This is what I want to do with the rest of my life?'”

As for what makes Thanos special, “Son of Titan” editor Stephen Wacker said: “He’s just an evil guy. He wants to rule over things. He wants power. It’s just so over the top and operatic — it’s as if Shakespeare wrote an opera.”
