New TV Spot for “CAPTAIN AMERICA”

Posted on 01 June 2011 by TH3 No08

The closer this film gets to dropping the more excited I get about seeing it. Captain America is definitely one of the most iconic of the comic book heroes and if Marvel screws this up it may well be the end of all humanity. Or not. This is an interesting new trailer with a bit of back story on our guy and a good look at Red Skull. Exciting stuff…

Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy

THOR : The God of Thunder featurette

Posted on 04 April 2011 by Christian

“Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.’–Mark Twain
With an upcoming movie its good to know your comic book Character – THOR. This feature answers the questions – Who he is? What are his abilities? What are the changes he underwent? Who has portrayed him in Comic Book Movies?

Who is THOR?
THOR is the Asgardian god of thunder who wields a mythical uru hammer, the mighty Mjolnir. He was sent to midgard (earth) by his father, Odin, to learn humility. In his time on midgard, he became one of its greatest hero, fighting in the name of Odin and of Asgard.

THOR is a fictional superhero who first appeared in Marvel Comics Journey into Mystery #83 (August 1962). He was created by editor-plotter Stan Lee, scripter Larry Lieber, and penciller Jack Kirby.Debuting in the Silver Age of Comic Books, the character is based on the THOR of Norse mythology.

What are his powers and abilities?
Note: Due to the nature of comicbooks being an on-going tale, the character’s powers along with his appearance, is in a constant state of flux.

Superhuman Strength: Being the son of Odin and the elder goddess Gaea, THOR is physically the strongest of the Norse gods and one of the most powerful beings in the Universe.

Superhuman Stamina: THOR’s advanced musculature is considerably more efficient than that of a human and most other Asgardians. As a result, his muscles produce practically no fatigue toxins during physical activity compared to those of humans and most other members of his race. He possesses practically inexhaustible stamina. He can exert himself at peak capacity for countless months on end at the very least without tiring at all.

Superhumanly Dense Tissue: THOR’s skin, muscle, and bone tissues have several times the density of the same tissue in the body of a human being, contributing to his superhuman weight.

Self Sustenance: He is capable of surviving in the vacuum of space unaided and does not need air, food, water, or sleep.

Superhuman Longevity: THOR, like all other Asgardians, isn’t immortal. THOR ages at a pace far, far slower than a human being as he is countless eons old; mortals’ life spans are comparable to nothing more than a blink of his immortal eyes.

Superhuman Durability: The tissues of THOR’s body are considerably harder and much more resistant to injury than those of humans. THOR possesses tremendous durability and is practically invulnerable.

Superhuman Speed: THOR’s superhumanly strong legs allow him to run and move at superhuman speeds far greater than the finest human athlete. He is so fast, he is capable of moving at speeds faster than the human eyes can see.

Superhuman Agility: THOR’s agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are far beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.

Superhuman Reflexes: THOR’s reflexes are similarly greatly enhanced and are much more superior to the reflexes of the finest human athlete.

Superhuman Senses: THOR possesses incredible superhuman senses, as he is able to effortlessly see objects as far out as the edge of the Solar System, and hear cries from as far as the other side of the planet.

Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite his astounding resistance to injury, it is possible to injure THOR. In the rare instances that he is injured, his body is capable of repairing damaged tissue with much greater speed and efficiency than the body of a human being and almost all other Asgardians.

Master Combatant: THOR is a superbly skilled warrior trained in the arts of war with over countless years of combat experience. He is one of the most skilled fighters to ever walk the planet.

Master Tactician: For over thousands and thousands of years he has lead Asgard into battle against overwhelming forces with great leadership and employed strategies and tactics from every culture, including forgotten ones.

What are the changes he underwent?

1. First appearance
Since his first appearance Journey into Mystery #83. This costume designed by Jack Kirby is still the main driving force on THOR’s look. Of course the costume has change throughout the decades, but most of the changes derived its look from this classic outfit. Elements of his costume are the winged helmet, the red cape, the metal discs on his upper tunic, and the strapped boots, which pretty much screams Superhero Viking. He has worn this costume since his debut in the 60s and throughout the 80s.

2. Battle armor
In THOR #378 (April 1987), THOR and Tony Stark designed a battle armor that will help hold THOR together after a curse placed on him by Hela made his bones as brittle as glass and unable to heal if damaged. THOR already broke his left arm so he has an armored cast around it. THOR also has to wear a mask and sport beard to cover the scars he has incurred on his face.

3. 1000 years younger
THOR #401 (March 1989), We have a story set in the past where a younger THOR accepts a wager from Loki to travel to Midgard, and join a Viking expedition to the new world. He will not have his power and will be unable to use Mjolnir. If he fails, he will be exiled to Midgard forever and give up all claim to the throne. He wores a more armored costume of his classic look, and he lost the red cape and gained a sword to replace his absent hammer.

4. Back to the Classics
At the tail end of the 80s and in the early days of the 90s THOR is back wearing his classic costume. Though there are times it seems that his upper costume loses the covering on his sides.

Enter the 90s
If you have read my previous articles about characters and their costumes during the 90s then you won’t be surprised as much on the looks that THOR underwent.

5. Godpack
It was during the mid 90s THOR was running around with beings of his peer, the Godpack, and as always when you are among peers there will be peer pressure and THOR has to find a way to fit in, and he got this costume. Metal pants, spiked kneepads, huge shoulder pads, the silver discs are now replaced by yellow octagons and a helmet with a widow’s peak. (Goodtimes) This costume debuted in THOR 475, June 1994

6. Topless
Maybe realizing the ridiculousness of his previous costume, he just said to hell with it I’ll just show my abs. So most of 96 he was running around shirtless.

7. DC Crossover Costume
(THOR then decided

He May Not Be Daredevil, But Robert Pattinson Is Still Interested In Playing A Superhero!

Posted on 21 March 2011 by Christian

After revealing that he has no idea about the rumors Fox are interested in casting him as Daredevil, the actor has now said he would consider playing a superhero, despite protests from “little fanboys”…

Robert Pattinson already has few fans outside of the Twilight crowd, and despite the actor now expanding his acting horizons, the rumor that he was up for the role of Matt Murdock in the new Daredevil proved that that is a genre of film no one is too keen on seeing him enter. Well, his following comments will surely make him even less popular with comic book movie fans.

“I’d love to definitely. I don’t know what superhero you’d do. Is there any left?”

“I shouldn’t even say this stuff, ’cause all the little fanboys will be like, ‘No! I’m gonna shoot him!’”

Robert Pattinson As Daredevil Rumors Surface; Said To Be Similar In Tone To Batman Begins!

Posted on 17 March 2011 by Christian

Apparently, there’s some “talk” that the Twilight actor is being looked at to reteam with David Slade on Daredevil, while new details on the tone and story have also emerged…

“The West Hollywood Resnorter” over at Moviehole has a very interesting piece up about David Slade’s planned Daredevil movie (said to be a continuation, rather than a reboot) but two things in particular caught my eye.. The first, is the revelation that the movie will be similar in tone to Batman Begins, while the mention of a bad guy trying to destroy Daredevil certaintly fits in with the rumor that they’re thinking of basing it on Frank Miller’s “Born Again” series.
