Review: Avengers – Endless Wartime

Review: Avengers – Endless Wartime

When it comes to comics, especially Marvel comics, I’ve usually focused on the Transformers line, with occasional forays into X-Men in the 90’s. Most of my knowledge about anything related to the Avengers comes from the recent movies (*waves madly* Hi, Mr. Hiddleston! You’re awesome!), and when I wanted to try to jump into Avengers comics, something by Warren Ellis seemed like the best place to start. I’ve read Ellis’s Transmetropolitan several times through, I’ve heard lots of rave reviews of Iron Man: Extremis, the man is a god of comic book writing, so I thought the recent Avengers:Endless Wartime would be a great introduction.

The final verdict? It was okay.

Ed Norton’s Agent Responds to Hulk Snub

Ed Norton’s Agent Responds to Hulk Snub

By now you probably know that Edward Norton will not reprise his role as The Hulk in the upcoming Avengers movie directed by Joss Whedon. So what’s the reason for this? Kevin Feige, president of Marvel, recently gave an “it’s not me, it’s you” reason for snubbing Edward Norton out of the Bruce Banner role. Here is the statement released by Feige.

“We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers. Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H, Chris E, Sam, Scarlett, and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks.”

Ouch. So it seems Feige and Marvel think that Norton can’t be a team player. Norton and his side couldn’t stay quiet for long. Norton’s agent, Ben Swardstrom, recently released a statement firing back at Feige calling his remarks “misleading” and “mean spiritied.” Move past the break for Swardstrom’s official statement.

Planet Hulk Review

Posted by: |

What do you do with a monster that’s impossible to control, so dangerous that not even Iron Man and the members of S.H.I.E.L.D. can stop him? Exile him to another planet. And what do you do if you’re the one being exiled? Well if you’re the Hulk, you bust open the ship in transit and crash land on a different planet altogether. These are the opening scenes of the recently released animated DVD Planet Hulk.

The original plan was to send Hulk away to a deserted planet full of vegetation and game and with no intelligent life forms. He can’t hurt anyone there and no one can hurt him. Needless to say, Hulk is not happy with this, and like I said, destroys the ship in transit and crash lands on a planet named Sakaar.

Upon landing he is captured and thrown into gladiator games where he must kill or be killed. If he can be triumphant in three games, then he wins his freedom.  All of this is done for the enjoyment of the Red King, who rules all, and the inhabitants of Sakaar. While fighting in the games, he befriends his fellow captives and works together with them to get through the first couple games.
