Alright, let’s get it out of the way: Spider-Man: Homecoming is the best live-action Spider-Man film there is. It’s funny, it’s smart, it’s age appropriate, it’s well shot, it’s well acted, and it’s damn fun to watch. It’s hard not to compare Tom Holland’s Spider-Man to the two who have gone before. But where Tobey...

Watching Deadpool a few weeks ago, I thought to myself: “How much more can Marvel turn into a movie?” The answer is: probably a lot more. As everyone’s heard by now, Deadpool is set for a sequel, possibly featuring Cable. The X-Men are probably getting a few more films, with McAvoy and Fassbender as leads....

Deadpool came out this past week. It’s a movie that’s been in development hell for the past decade, only given the green light after leaked test footage featuring Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool at his best somehow made its way onto the internet. And the rest became cinematic history. Deadline.com reported that at the end of...

I’ve made no secrets of the fact that I vastly prefer Marvel – both in print and onscreen – to DC. The little DC I do read is limited to anything Gail Simone has done (Birds of Prey, Batgirl, Wonder Woman) and anything that genuinely looks interesting (Birds of Prey, Batgirl, Wonder Woman). Yeah, I...

Supanova Pop Culture Expo is always a fantastic expo, and 2014’s Sydney edition was no exception. With a killer roster of celebrity guests including the godfather of Marvel, Stan Lee, Kingslayer Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the main cast of webseries Star Trek Continues (including names such as Vic Mignogna, Chuck Huber and Grant Imahara), John Barrowman of Torchwood and Doctor Who fame,...

I’m not a completionist or “real” comic book collector by any definition of the word. I don’t buy every variant, or original #1s, or even every single issue on the series (collected series are cheaper). But when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), I like watching it all. Yes to trailers, yes to one-shots, yes to after-credits scenes and...

For those that perhaps don’t read a lot of Marvel, things can be a little confusing. Take Spider-Man. There’s Superior Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Sensational Spider-Man…what? Basically, the Marvel Universe (or Earth-616) is one of a multiverse which includes the Ultimate universe. In Ultimate Comics Cataclysm #0.1, the problem is not in the...

I am a giant geek. There, I admitted it. I like sci-fi and I like fantasy, I like comic books and I loved Thor 2: The Dark World. This film opens with narration that felt positively Lord of the Rings-esque: Dark Elves led by Malekith the Kursed, orc-like creatures and Asgardians battle it out to...

You gotta love some galactic-sized business, and that’s what Infinity is about. This six-parter includes characters as humble as Captain America and as big as the beings on the Galactic Council for a limited series of cosmic proportions. Infinity #3 is smack bang in the middle of this series, and things look incredibly dire. The Builders...

Well I’ve been coveting this book since I realised it existed. Spider-Men, pretty obviously, is a comic book about more than one Spider-Man. Peter Parker is the first to be introduced in this book, along with his usual snark and some self-aware monologuing. Boom, bang, some criminals taken care of and some police evaded. It’s...
