Hey guys, Jana here,


We’ve seen comic book movies take our favorite actors and turn them into gods, well not all of them, but it’s always exciting to see who is next to take up the mantle thrown down by Marvel and is capable of living up to the inked character they embody. ‘Captain America: Civil War‘ has just tapped Freeman for an unknown part in the sequel. and hits theaters May 6, 2016.

Check Out The Trailer For Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 13th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,


Marvel and Disney have the goose that lays golden eggs with their collaborations on comic movies, no one can deny the success of ‘The Avengers‘ or ‘Captain America‘, not to mention ‘Iron Man‘ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. So it was a safe gamble to move forward with the lesser known ‘Ant-Man‘, and the fan excitement for the film shows it was a good choice.

Hey guys, Jana here,




Marvel made an announcement today, actually several announcements, about the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ve all been hearing rumors about upcoming projects but nothing has been verified until today. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige took the stage to lay out a timeline for their next few films.

In the category of we-all-knew-it-would-happen-eventually Marvel is paving the way for an epic battle between Captain America and Iron Man with ‘Captain America: Civil War‘. Chris Evans and Robert Downey, Jr will reprise their previous roles and Chadwick Boseman will make his first appearance as the Black Panther. Cap’s Civil War hits big screens on May 6, 2016.

Film Review: ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 3rd, 2014

Fernando M., Here….


Marvel’s next adventure for beloved comic book icon ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘ is ambitious; a triumph in many respects, but perhaps falls just shy of reaching its full potential as a standalone film.

Hi, Bryan Here….


Marvel Studios has not let up one bit with prepping new films for more characters in their universe.  We do know that we will be getting a treasure trove of new superhero films over the next few years, which will lead up to ‘The Avengers 2‘ in 2015, which Marvel is calling Phase Two.  I guess Phase One started with the first ‘Iron Man‘ and ended with ‘The Avengers‘.

Hi, Bryan Here….

If you were looking forward to the Marvel’s Cinematic Universe Phase One Superhero Blu-Ray Set, then you might not like this post.  German luggage company Rimowa BhmbH has just filed a lawsuit against Marvel for copyright infringement on the replica S.H.I.E.L.D briefcase that wil house all the bluray films.  The set was supposed to be released in a couple of weeks.  Now, it is indefinitely on hold.  Wow.  How big of an asshole is that German luggage company?

Hi, Bryan Here….

We all know that since Marvel’s first film, ‘Iron Man’ in 2008 was all a marketing ploy for ‘The Avengers’.  Now that the ‘Avengers’ has been in theaters for several weeks now and that the bluray for ‘The Avengers’ has been announced already, we have all wanted to know if there was going to be an all out ultimate edition of all the Marvel films in one set.  Well that day has come.Marvel has announced the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase One box set.  It’s called Avengers Assembled which consists of 10 discs of all Marvel films from ‘Iron Man’ thru ‘The Avengers’.

‘Captain America 2’ Set For April 2014!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 5th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Marvel announced today that the sequel to ‘Captain America’ will be released on April 4th, 2014.  This is an interesting move by Marvel since it will be airing in the spring rather than the summer when all the other big movies will be out.  Marvel hasn’t done this since 2004 with their ‘Punisher’ film.  But maybe with the success from ‘Hunger Games’ and ’21 Jump Street’.

Hi Bryan Here….

Yes, Disney has just set two release dates for unknown Marvel Comics films.  Both of which are in 2014.  So we know there will be an ‘Iron Man 3’ film, and sequels to both ‘Thor’ and ‘Captain America’.  Also there will be an ‘Ant-Man’ film made by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead/Scott Pilgrim) and Joe Cornish who did the amazing ‘Attack The Block’ film.  Could it be possible that Joss Whedon will be working back to back on an ‘Avengers’ sequel?

Hi Bryan Here…

Marvel only made 100 of these posters which is a vintage look at Captain America: The First Avenger.  It even has Captain America himself punching out Hitler which is from the the first Captain America comic book.  Plus it has some great looks at all the characters and the Howling Commandos.  These posters were given out to the cast and crew of the film in which five of them were given away as prizes at the Hero Complex Film Festival.  So I don’t think any of us will be seeing these in person anytime soon, but maybe at some point, someone will be selling these on ebay.  Enjoy.

Marvel Comics Will Get the Tron Treatment…

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 20th, 2010

Since Disney bought Marvel all those months ago, it is only right that Marvel will get to use the Disney brand of Tron in their comics.

Just like last Halloween, a lot of Marvel titles had alternate variant covers featuring Zombies.  Such as the cover for an Amazing Spider-Man issue would have Spidey as a zombie on the front cover.  You can see what those look like and purchase them HERE.

Well in anticipation for the upcoming release of the Tron sequel, “Tron: Legacy” Marvel is using their new ownership to riddle their titles and covers with Tron-Esque artwork.  And they look BADASS.

Here is a list of what they will be:

• AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #651 TRON Variant, featuring Spider-Man

• AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant. featuring Spider-Woman

• AVENGERS ACADEMY #7 TRON Variant, featuring Quicksilver

• CAPTAIN AMERICA #612 TRON Variant, featuring Captain America

• INCREDIBLE HULKS #618 TRON Variant, featuring Ghost Rider

• INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #33 TRON Variant, featuring Iron Man

• NEW AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant, featuring Ms. Marvel

• SECRET AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant, featuring Moon Knight

• THOR #617 TRON Variant, featuring Thor

• WOLVERINE #4 TRON Variant, featuring Wolverine

These all will be released from November through December.  Be sure to check the Boomstick Comics Store by clicking HERE to purchase these variant covers.

Below are what the covers will look like.

Since the first Iron Man film, Jon Favreau and Marvel have gone to great lengths to show us glimpses of some of our favorite superheroes in subtle ways throughout the Marvel hero films.

Now when we all pick up our copy of Iron Man 2 on bluray/dvd, take a close look and see if you see the references to Captain America, Thor, and Black Panther.

Specifically the scene featuring Tony Stark and Nick Fury discussing the Avengers Initiative, the background of which was littered with an assortment of footage, maps and images hinting at other Marvel properties.

[The first is] from “The Incredible Hulk”, which means Iron Man 2 took place before “The Incredible Hulk.” If you look you see the the crater on the other monitor, that’s the “Thor” thing. That’s where the hammer was recovered. This is just a geek heaven here.

And if you think that anything on this monitors is not something we at Marvel didn’t talk about for hours – you are crazy! See, there is a map up there, so… if you look at those maps, each one of those locations corresponds to something in the Marvel Universe. I’m not supposed to say that.

And if you look on each one, and I know what they mean, but I’m not gonna say it, but I’m gonna say this: Two of them relate to “The First Avenger: Captain America,” one of them relates to “Thor.” The one in Africa relates to Black Panther.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ 4K UHD Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 13th, 2019

The culmination of everything we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the first Iron Man movie in 2008 is here with Avengers: Endgame. Back in 2008, a few people had a big idea for us comic book fans. That idea started with Iron Man, where at the end of the film, Samuel L. Jackson showed up and wanted to get a team together. That team would be the Avengers, that would go on to team up everyone’s favorite superheroes, including Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, The Wasp, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Scarlett Witch, Vision, The Winter Soldier, and a few others. Spread over the course of ten years, these filmmakers and Marvel Studio execs have crafted an intense storyline that has continued over the last decade with rich and iconic characters that have had their own movies to shine, along with teaming up here and there to take on bigger threats.

Spider-Man: Far From Home – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 2nd, 2019

Spider-Man: Far From Home shows that if this is the direction they plan to go after Avengers: Endgame, then be prepared for another 10 years of Marvel dominance. The ease with which this film picks up after the events of Endgame while propelling a single character forward was actually unexpected to me. Maybe I was dumb for doubting Marvel, but I didn’t think that Far From Home would be better than 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it was.
