Here’s what Cahoon had to say … ASSIGNMENT X: You’ve worked with Julie Taymor before on THE LION KING musical, what […]Read On »

It’s taken some time, but the title of SPIDER-MAN 4 aka the SPIDER-MAN reboot movie is finally here and it is … THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. That’s not surprising, considering the title is also shared with one of the longest running SPIDER-MAN comic book series. Also released is a photo of Garfield in full costume  – hopefully to quell fears that the behind-the-scenes footage of the Spidey-costume will look better when properly lit (it does). THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN opens July 3, 2012 and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field. […]Read On »

BLACK PANTHER DVD | &copy Marvel/Shout! Factory

Since he was a child, writer-director Reginald Hudlin (HOUSE PARTY, BOOMERANG) has been a fan of Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER comic book. In fact, for the last two decades, he’s been attached in one way or another to aborted feature film adaptations of the character. In 2005, he rebooted the character in Marvel’s comic book pages (with legendary artist John Romita, Jr.) which was subsequently turned into a six-episode animated series based on the first comic arc “Who Is Black Panther?” With Shout! Factory releasing the DVD this week that compiles all six episodes (with special features), BLACK PANTHER is back. […]Read On »
