I was an Avengers’ Black Widow apologist before today

Last month I was an Avengers: Age of Ultron apologist for the likes of Black Widow (and to a lesser extent Hawkeye). I saw the press materials without the two of these folks, and I was with the camp that said the Main Men were More Marketable. They are, aren't they? Captian America, Thor, Iron Man, and The Hulk - they're all really recognizable. But to steal a toy from Our Lady Of The Kill - isn't that going too far? Captain America, can't you just let her have this one?

Galaxy S6 Avengers Editions already exist

So you're pumped up about the possibility of a Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge with an Iron Man theme. So you wish you had a red Galaxy S6 with a gold border around it, yes? Imagine your surprise, then, when it's revealed that several of these phones already exist with the theme you do so desire? As it turns out, Samsung is already - really and truly - working with Marvel on an Avengers campaign, and those of you that already have Galaxy devices already have access.

X-Men Days of Future Past: Rogue Cut detailed

X-Men Days of Future Past: Rogue Cut detailed

Through Periscope, of all places, X-Men Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer announced the "Rogue Cut" of his most recent sci-fi film. This version of the movie will include a relatively major sub-plot that includes Rogue, one of the main characters in the first X-Men film. Anna Paquin will be featured in scenes that were filmed and produced to final-feature quality and (originally) cut at the last minute - or due to it being a bit of extraneous information, depending on who you believe, really.

Loki in Avengers Age of Ultron: now you see him, now you don’t

Loki in Avengers Age of Ultron: now you see him, now you don’t

You'll have to wait until the DVD/Blu-ray release to see Loki in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Scenes were filmed, we've found out this week, but in the end, they had to be cut. According to director Joss Whedon, "we did shoot something, but it didn't play." Sometimes you just have too many characters in a movie, apparently. Too many plots and too many pieces of action. Too much plot, and too much madness. Peter Jackson, meanwhile, was unavailable for comment on the situation.

Stan Lee teaches “Cameo School” session with Audi

Stan Lee teaches “Cameo School” session with Audi

Arriving in his very fancy Audi S8, Stan Lee appears prepared to teach a class in making a cameo appearance. Having appeared in basically every Marvel Comics movie released in the past 10 years, Stan Lee is the pro. He's about to teach the class what this means. In this spot you'll find Kevin Smith, Tara Reid, Michael Rooker, Jason Mewes, and Lou Ferrigno - all of whom have made cameo appearances in the past, of their own. They're all rather large comic book fans, as it were.

Apple Watch approaches like a Silver Surfer

Apple Watch approaches like a Silver Surfer

I don't have an Apple Watch around my wrist. Lets get that fact out of the way right this minute, since every other technology blogger in the universe seems - I emphasize SEEMS - to have one today on "launch day." The Apple Watch, like the iPhone and to a slightly lesser extend the iPad, is a herald of something greater. A new community, and a new way of computing. Just like the iPhone, Apple didn't make the first of its kind with the Apple Watch. But, judging SOLELY by the number of apps that've been released at launch for this one new product category, Apple has, once again, summoned the smartwatch.

The Avengers Age of Ultron Spider-Man scene that wasn’t

The Avengers Age of Ultron Spider-Man scene that wasn’t

First of all - there is no post-credits scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron at all. None. There is, however, a very clever hoax being delivered to the web this week courtesy of one serious hoaxer. How exactly they created the sequence you're about to see, we do not know - but it's fairly believable. Especially since this is the quality at which most "post credits sequences" are delivered these days, generally speaking. And it wouldn't make much sense for Marvel to reboot Spider-Man like this AGAIN, would it?

There are a large number of comic book conventions held throughout the year all across the US, and with the events rapidly becoming mainstream popular in recent years, especially San Diego's con every summer, it's not surprising to see new ones spring up.

It's called the Silicon Valley Comic Con, and it's scheduled for March 19-20, 2016.

Avengers: Age of Ultron clip hints why Hulk smash Iron Man

If you thought the revelation of The Vision would be the last we'd see of teasers for Avengers: Age of Ultron, better think again. We still have a week or two (depending on where you live) so there's still plenty of room for teasers and potential spoilers. While this latest snippet isn't exactly an official trailer, it was shown in public at the recent MTV Music Awards for everyone to gawk at and chew on. It does contain potential spoilers about the until now unexplained confrontation between Hulk and Iron Man's Hulkbuster Armor, so be warned.

Marvel confirms Spider-Man reboot will star Peter Parker

Marvel confirms Spider-Man reboot will star Peter Parker

Shortly after the news that Sony was allowing Spider-Man to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), fans began discussing their hopes that the next movie would tell the story of someone other than Peter Parker, like successor Miles Morales for example, becoming the web-slinger. Also, that we not get yet another origin story, following one each with previous lead actors Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Well, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed in a recent interview that we will once again be seeing Peter Parker in the (yet again) rebooted Spider-Man film, along with other details.
