‘Batman Returns’ Is Better Than You Think. Seriously.

In just a few hours time, ‘Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ debuts in theaters worldwide. Which has ModCon02 thinking about ‘Batman Returns’ – his favorite big screen version of the perennial comic book hero. I may have mentioned this before, but Batman was always my favorite super hero. I don’t remember when this realization […]

He’ll One-Punch His Way Into Your Heart

I admit, upon hearing the premise of Onepunch – the world’s-strongest-man-turned hero (who is possibly depressed over how boring his fights are since he’s too strong) – I was ready to give it a pass. But Onepunch made itself hard to ignore. Saitama – Onepunch Man himself – was all over my Tumblr dashboard punching […]

Michael Colter recently confirmed that ‘Luke Cage’ – the latest Marvel Comics/Netflix collaboration – will arrive for our binge-watching pleasure on September 30th. A mainstay of Marvel Comics’ roster since 1972, Luke Cage (are they still gonna call him ‘Hero For Hire’? I’m betting no, but…) made his screen debut as a supporting character on […]

Right now, Twitter is ablaze with people choosing #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan for the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie. But the truth is – your allegience should run deeper than just which superhero you prefer. Civil War promises to challenge our real-life philosophies – and we’ll be forced to side with authoritarianism or liberty as […]

Will J K Simmons Be Back for the Spider-Man Reboot?

With Captain America: Civil War ready to hit cinemas in May, everybody’s talking about the new Spider-Man, Tom Holland (not Andrew Garfield. The new, new Spider-Man.) But, more loudly, people are talking about whether or not J K Simmons will be back to play Spidey’s outspoken boss, J. Jonah Jameson. Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies were […]

Deadpool Hits a Perfect Balance

With a guerrilla marketing campaign of emojis and social media selfies, it was clear from the get-go that Deadpool wasn’t going to be just-another-superhero-movie – but just how perfectly it straddled the genre was impressive.     11 years ago, Ryan Reynolds nearly did the impossible and killed Deadpool. The beloved, forth-wall-breaking comic-book character was brought to life in X-Men […]

Oscars 88 is looming comrades! The 88th annual Academy Awards come to ABC on February 28th and, well… there’s been some frank and open discussions about What It All Means. For better or worse, here’s my 2 cents worth. As always, I will note that all opinions expressed herein are my own and not the […]

‘Jessica Jones’ – Yes, It Really IS That Good.

Believe the hype. Netflix’s take on Marvel Comics’ troubled Superhero-turned Private Investigator Jessica Jones is as good as everyone is saying it is. In fact, this is exactly the kind of treatment of comic book characters and stylings that comic fans have been saying they want for years. There isn’t one element of this show […]
