Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One Collection back on sale, release date confirmed

Posted by John Kilhefner Categories: Home Entertainment, Movies,

It's been a long time coming for patiently waiting Marvel fans, but the 10-disc Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled Blu-ray collection set is finally slated for release on April 2nd. The collection had previously been delayed by lawsuit, leaving Amazon to pacify pre-orderers with free copies of The Avengers.

Originally, the collection was to come with a S.H.I.E.L.D. briefcase, but that has since been scrapped due to the aforementioned licensing issue. It will, however, come with a suitcase featuring a glowing Tesseract on the inside. Also, thanks to the delay, the collection will have a few new extras, such as an early Iron Man 3 preview and the second phase of films. But with extra content comes extra financial responsibility, as the price is now $219 at retail--but you can preorder it for $197.10 on Amazon, saving yourself 10%.

How To Write Comics The Fingeroth Way!

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Marvel Comics,

Danny FingerothHey, while you’re sitting on your butt Wednesday nights playing on the computer, you could be learning how to write comic books.

My good friend, Danny Fingeroth, is opening up his brain again and letting all the how-to out with his 5-part online course called Writing Comics And Graphic Novels. As a former Marvel editor - and one I hold in high regard - and comic book writer - ditto - it doesn’t get much better than this in the learning department. He's now the Sr. VP of Education at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York.

Kickstarter: A Geek’s Journal 1976

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

Geek's JournalI’m a geek and I certainly was in high school.

My life was full of comics, television, and all the usual school stuff. Unfortunately, I didn’t write any of my life down at the time. But I know a guy who did: Steven Thompson, the creator of the popular pop-culture blog Booksteve’s Library, wrote it all down in 1976 and kept it up.

He recently discovered his old diary and posted it on the internet, one entry per day along with modern commentary as the author looked back on his teenaged life.

It’s a funny, fascinating look at one fan’s life, as he tries to get something going with girls, hangs out with friends, goes to concerts, buys records and comics, watches television and masturbates (yep, he goes there).

Kristen Stewart For Akira Role?

Kristen StewartKristen Stewart has been approached to take on the main female role in the reimagining of Akira.

The live-action adaptation of the iconic magna comic is set to start shooting in March following a script rewrite by Steve Kloves, and bosses have offered the Twilight: Saga beauty the part of Kei, a young medium who becomes the love interest for the main character, teen biker gang member Kaneda.

The original story - focusing on Kaneda and his friend Tetsuo (who has yet to be cast) - was set in post-nuclear war Tokyo in 2019, while the new movie is expected to take place in New York. Andrew Garfield, James McAvoy and Kristen's boyfriend and Twilight: Saga co-star Robert Pattinson have all been approached for the role of Tetsuo - who is saved from a medical experiment by his friend.

Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production company is working on the $300 million project for Warner Brothers with Allen and Albert Hughes directing. The intention is to make two films, each covering three books in the six-part series. An animated version of Akira has already been made, released in Japan in 1988.
