Spider-Gwen Makes Her First Animated Appearance This Weekend

by Peter Paltridgeon August 24, 2016
The length of time between when a Marvel character catches on and when she gets her own TV appearance is shortening rapidly. It wasn’t too long ago that Ms. Marvel appeared animated for the first time on Avengers: Ultron Revolution, and now Spider-Gwen will be swinging into Ultimate Spider-Man.

SDCC 2016: You Can’t Watch This Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Clip

by Peter Paltridgeon July 24, 2016
Marvel and Disney released an exclusive early clip from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 during their panel yesterday. Wanna see it? Well…you can’t.

SDCC 2016: The Flash Borks With History

SDCC 2016: New Doctor Strange Trailer

by Peter Paltridgeon July 23, 2016
A new trailer for Marvel’s Doctor Strange was released this afternoon. This time, it’s more than just trippy scenery: we actually see the man work some magic. In the heat of battle, he quickly makes a topsy-turvy mess of New York City. I hope he knows how to put it back together. Marvel’s Doctor Strange […]

SDCC 2016: Ghost Rider Joins Agents Of SHIELD

by Peter Paltridgeon July 22, 2016
The rumors are true: the guy on the motorcycle with the flaming skull for a head is joining what until today was a fairly grounded-in-science superhero series. Ghost Rider is riding into Coulson’s camp! It would be awesome if this were actually Nicolas Cage, but the Ghost Rider that’s being used in SHIELD is a […]
