***This article discusses the mid-credits scene of Avengers, and if you haven’t seen it yet and have managed to avoid spoilers, well, that’s impressive and we don’t want to ruin it for you.**
Nearly a year ago, reports surfaced that Marvel Studios was looking at Guardians of the Galaxy as a potential future movie property. Though it excited fans, it also seemed like ultimately a long shot — it’s a relatively unknown commodity to all except hardcore comic book fans, and one that has only existed since 2008 (since it’s the present-day cosmic team that’s in development, not the 31st century superheroes that have been around sicne 1969). Plus, the last superhero/sci-fi movie was Green Lantern, a major financial and critical disappointment.
Following a few recent developments and the continually escalating success of Avengers, it seems like a Guardians of the Galaxy movie might just happen, potentially as soon as 2014.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige himself mentioned it as a possibility last month at the Avengers press junket, expressing his fondness for the property and listing it among Inhumans, Doctor Strange and the long in-the-works Ant-Man as non-sequel films being considered. Continue reading

After the Sorceress awakens He-Man to his true purpose, he embarks on a quest to restore the rest of the gang. (Including, we hope, Snout Spout.) Continue reading

***Spoiler warning! Last chance to head out before the major Ultimate Fallout #4 reveal of the new Ultimate Spider-Man’s identity!***
The Ultimate Universe has a new Spider-Man, and it’s a character that readers have never seen before: Miles Morales, a half-black, half-Hispanic teen.
The news first broke just after midnight Tuesday on USA Today, and caps months of speculation following Marvel’s announcement in April that someone other than Peter Parker would be taking on the role of Spider-Man in the publisher’s Ultimate Universe. Continue reading
To the comic book industry, it’s certainly surprising that a major publisher like DC Entertainment would relaunch 52 titles with revised continuity and new #1s.
And for long-time collectors of Uncanny X-Men, it’s shocking to think the comic will start over with a new #1 in November.
But the idea of relaunching comics isn’t exactly a new one.
Over the years, it’s become fairly common to “start over” a comic’s numbering. Some titles start over every few years. Just ask a comic shop for Captain America #1 and you’ll get the answer, “Which one?”

If adventure has a name, it is Indiana Jones. The archaeologist hero of movies, television and video games has been protecting the artifacts of ancient civilizations from criminals and the forces of evil for over thirty years. Now fact and fiction collide in Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology, a touring exhibition that combines the popular hero’s exploits with real world artifacts to inspire another generation to explore and protect the past. Newsarama asked Kyra Bowling, the Exhibits Manager for Lucasfilm, if Indiana Jones really does belong in a museum.
After decades of legal battles, remake rumors and other obstacles, “The Six Million Dollar Man” is finally, FINALLY, out on DVD for a new generation to enjoy. It’s about time, says the Bionic Man himself. Newsarama has a great interview with the man himself Lee Majors. Enjoy.
