Guardians of the Galaxy comic hints at Star Wars crossover

The comic book "Guardians of Infinity" is the newest in a line of releases made possible in part due to the success and popularity of the Guardians of the Galaxy film release. In the first of these comics, the team - including Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot - are exploring a mysterious facility, the contents of which are unknown to them.

Deadpool’s tiniest Easter Egg

Film producer Aditya Sood revealed a tidbit of a connection between two of the movies he's worked on very recently: The Martian and Deadpool. At a press event for the home format release (DVD, Blu-ray, digital) of The Martian, Sood was asked about the long-awaited Marvel Comics title Deadpool. What were the differences between getting a little-known book (pre-big-publisher) turned into a major motion picture, and Deadpool, a film that's been notorious in its pre-production time - years and years and years on deck or below it? Sood answered indirectly.

X-Men Apocalypse full trailer spills ALL the details

No, true believers, this film will not feature our most favorite of Marvel Comics villains. It will have no Onslaught - but if we weren't wise to the fact that this wasn't, we might think it was. What you're about to witness is a trailer that might change your mind about X-Men Apocalypse if you'd felt sour to the idea before. Not just because the main bad guy is a Power Ranger villain. He wasn't just made by Rita Repulsa.

Google’s Play Books gives comics a kick in the cape

Though Google has had digital editions of comic books from every major publisher for quite a while, the reading experience hasn't changed a whole lot since Google's "Play Books" app's comic experience was first launched.

Watch Deadpool spend Halloween trolling a bunch of kids

As the role of Deadpool was made for Ryan Reynolds and the suit was cut for him specifically, the actor takes many opportunities to wear it. To wear the skin of the comic book character, figuratively. Or literally, we don't really know, but we're guessing. In the video you're about to see, "How Deadpool Spent Halloween," you're going to see Deadpool speaking with a bunch of kids dressed up like the X-Men, and subsequently swearing at them several times.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 casting calls for beautiful women and odd men

NASA-funded research enacts Wolverine-style healing

NASA-funded research enacts Wolverine-style healing

Researchers have created a material compound that, when ripped, punctured, or damaged in any way, is able to heal itself in a very short span of time. While we're not quite sure on if this technology has any applicability to human or mutant skin, like that of the Marvel Comics character Wolverine, it certainly appears to work in the field. What we're looking at here is what researchers suggest is a "terminator"-style material. We're thinking it's a bit more like our favorite quick-healing Canadian.
