About three years ago, two members of the Fantastic Four went missing, and were presumed dead. Sue Storm-Richards and Reed Richards sacrificed themselves and Ben Grimm and Johnny Storm were left wondering if they were still alive. Fantastic Four #1 came out this week and while it didn’t have the exact moment we were all waiting for, we know it is coming. This comic book made me cry from the moment I opened it up (more on that in a minute) and I highly recommend picking it up. We get two fantastic (no pun intended) stories, and I can’t wait for more!
Welcome to my pull list for new comic book day (8/8/18). This week there are a LOT of comic books that I need, want, OK need. Don’t miss out on my live chats over on YouTube to find out what I am loving and not loving. This is something I do weekly, on Wednesdays (AKA new comic book day) at 1pm EST. We usually also get super off topic and talk about random things. It is a good time, I promise! I look forward to seeing you there.
Avengers: Infinity War was released this week on digital, and is coming home to DVD and Blu-ray on August 14th. I have said it many times before but one of my favorite things about purchasing a film like this is the bonus features. Deleted scenes, gag reels, and commentary really give you a feel for the movie that you didn’t have before. So when I was sent Infinity War, before even watching the movie again, I tackled the bonus features. Now I am going to tell you if they are worth the watch.
Avengers: Infinity War Bonus Features + Win A MARVELous Prize Pack from GameStop! | #InfinityWar #Avengers
Avengers: Infinity War is now out on digital (eek!) and comes home on blu-ray August 14th. One of my favorite things about a movie’s home release is all the bonus features that we get. From gag reels, to deleted scenes, to commentary – there are so many amazing things we can learn about our favorite films. When I first saw the list of bonus features that would be a part of the Avengers: Infinity war home release, I was floored. Each and every one sounded more exciting and amazing than the last. It looks like we will really get to dive in to Thanos’ background. But for me, the director commentary is where it is at.
Since so many people have asked me what comic books I pick up every week, I decided to put out my weekly pull list. Of course, I will still be discussing these over on YouTube every new comic book day at 1pm EST, so don’t miss those fun live chats. You guys should KNOW I am a Marvel girl, so I will be letting you know the comic books I am picking up from Marvel, but I will be sure to mention other notable releases, even if I don’t plan to get them myself.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger hooked me from the first few minutes, and I haven’t looked back since. You probably know I am a huge Marvel comics fan, but some heroes I have never known much about are Cloak and Dagger. I love when they pop in to help save the day in crossover events – but I have never checked out their stand alone comics. From what I do know, their origin differs from what we see in this show, but Freeform is killing it with their interpretation. The season finale airs next week (August 2nd), and if you haven’t watched the show yet, get ready to binge all 9 episodes.
You don’t have to look any further than my right arm to know that I’m a huge fan of Guardians of the Galaxy. I’ve been a fan of the comic books since I was a little girl, and I was skeptical about how it would be adapted for theaters. I was thrilled to see the version that James Gunn brought to the big screen in 2014. During the filming of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, I was lucky enough to visit the set and interview Gunn for the first time. I interviewed him again during Vol. 2’s press junket. During each encounter, I was impressed by his vision, his talent, and his kindness.
Ant-Man and The Wasp Director Peyton Reed Dishes on the Future of the MCU & More! | #AntManAndTheWaspEvent
One of my favorite things about my job is getting to talk to directors and producers about all the behind the scenes and planning of films. Things like that really interest me so when I met with Director Peyton Reed about Ant-Man and The Wasp, the morning after seeing the movie, I was so excited and anxious. I wanted to know every little detail and everything that went through his head because this movie is everything. The first thing we talked about was the mid and post credit scenes (read more about that here), and then we moved on to this hilarious movie!
WARNING: THIS ARTICLE IS FILLED WITH SPOILERS FROM ANT-MAN AND THE WASP! If you have not seen it and do not want any spoilers, please come back after you have seen the movie. Now that Ant-Man and The Wasp has been out for a week, let’s discuss it. This movie was brilliant, if you ask me. Filled with humor, exactly what I would want in an Ant-Man movie. But honestly, the girls take center stage in this one and kick some serious butt. And then, well, read on to see how Marvel built me back up after Infinity War with much needed humor, only to rip out a tiny piece of my soul during the mid-credit scene.
In the Marvel Comics Ghost is a man, not a woman. So when I first saw that Hannah John-Kamen would portray Ghost in Ant-Man and The Wasp, I was really intrigued. I could not wait to see what Marvel was up to. Well, color me impressed because she killed it as Ghost. The story, her background, I loved it all! After watching the movie the night before, I was really eager to chat with Hannah about how incredible she was on screen, and how it felt to take that villain, if you can call her that, to a whole new level.
