GAME OF THRONES EXPERT SWORDSMAN JOINS CAST OF STAR WARS: EPISODE VII09/02/14 @ 3:20 pm EST
Marvel Entertainment and ABC Studios are proud to announce Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Season, an all-new hardcover graphic novel inspired by the popular “Castle”
television series. This 112 page hardcover, based the titular novel from noted author Richard Castle, hits comic shops, the Marvel Comics app
, Nook Bookstore and everywhere books are sold on October 17th, 2012.
Private Investigator Derrick Storm is hired to bug the hotel suite of an African head of state, but this routine mission quickly spirals out of control when Storm overhears a woman’s terrifying scream on the wire. Plagued by the victim’s helpless cry, Storm—despite an ominous warning—investigates the truth. Soon he’ll discover an international conspiracy reaching further than he ever imagined…and perhaps the truth about Clara Strike, a CIA Agent the world thinks is dead.
“As a comic book fan, I couldn’t be more excited about Brian and Kelly Sue bringing Derrick Storm to life once again in Storm Season” said Richard Castle. “Storm is a character near and dear to my heart, so I wouldn’t trust him with many people, but he is in some incredibly capable hands with this team.”
This is the second “Castle” original graphic novel to be released through a collaborative effort between Marvel, ABC Studios and the producers of “Castle.” In 2011, Castle: Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm dominated sales charts and garner worldwide acclaim.
“Marvel has done an amazing job of bringing Derrick Storm to a new audience and we’re thrilled to keep the magic going with this next graphic novel.” said Andrew W. Marlowe, “Castle” creator/executive producer. “Fans can look forward to another fantastic adventure, filled with page-turning excitement. Storm Season is Richard Castle at his finest.”
Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Storm reunites the lauded writing duo of Brian Michael Bendis & Kelly Sue DeConnick (Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm) for their second Castle story. They’re joined by rising star artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor), whose dynamic interior artwork brings the world of Derrick Storm to life like never before. This original graphic comes wrapped in a stunning cover by acclaimed artist Dustin Weaver (S.H.I.E.L.D.).
“The Derrick Storm novels are full of action, intrigue and compelling characters—it’s no surprise that our graphic novel adaptations have taken the literary world by storm!” said Axel Alonso, Marvel Entertainment Editor in Chief. “Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Season will be one of the most exciting graphic novels you read all year, whether you’re a longtime fan of Richard Castle or new to his exciting stories.”

STAN GOLDBERG DIES, AGED 8209/01/14 @ 6:55 pm EST
Thanks to the sharp ears of CBR, and by way of Bleeding Cool, we could have absolute confirmation of new Doctor Strange and Black Panther movies coming from Marvel Studios.
Or it may have been the slip of tongue from a guy who once ID’d Bruce Banner, whom he created, as BOB Banner. (That is where the moniker Robert Bruce Banner later came from, BTW.)
At Fan Expo Canada, Stan “The Man” Lee was quoted as saying:
“We haven’t made a Black Widow movie but she’s been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward. And the chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and the Black Panther and there are others I am not allowed to talk about.”
So the Black Panther is a movie he IS allowed to talk about? Ant-Man is of course in production now with Peyton Reed directing and Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly starring. And the rumor mill on Doctor Strange has been turning fast with casting talk from Jack Huston to Joaquin Phoenix and of course Scott Derrickson is attached to direct.
So does this mean that Black Panther is moving forward as well? Or perhaps this time for Stan Lee it was more than ‘Nuff Said?

WOLVERINE, WONDER WOMAN TOPS AT MARVEL, DC PANELS08/31/14 @ 11:56 pm EST
The first panel of the day at Fan Expo Canada was that of Walking Dead, moderated by Richard Ouzounian, resident theatre critic at The Toronto Star.
As recounted by the Huffington Post, Fan Expo pulled out all the stops by bringing five cast members from the show (three living and two deceased) all together on one stage. Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) made up the living characters, while Merle (Michael Rooker) and the evil Governor (David Morrissey) were brought back from the dead for the panel.
As the five spoke to their positively rabid fanbase, it became clear that while "The Walking Dead" is an emotional roller-coaster for the viewer, it's even more emotionally and physically taxing for the cast and crew. Gurira, an experienced playwright and theatrical actress, compared the experience and the emotional headspace she must put herself in, to a war zone.
“It felt to me like a war zone. It felt very real that way and very visceral,” she said. “One of the plays I researched was about war, so I'd gone to a war zone area and it really felt similar to what the show had managed to make very tangible, which is that idea that when everything is gone and all the structures we're used to go away, who do you become?
“Thankfully, we haven't experienced that for a long time on this soil … The thing I love about this show is that it asks the question that a war zone asks of you, which is: where's your humanity going to fall when all those things go away? Will you become The Governor or will you become someone who transforms so beautifully like Daryl?”

It’s always interesting, Bleeding Cool observes, to see the different panel styles of Marvel and DC at Fan Expo. Whereas DC has an itinerary, a power point, audience prizes and a short Q&A session at the end, Marvel does their panels entirely as open Q&A’s with no prepared presentation.
This year’s Marvel panel included: Adam Kubert, Mahmud Asrar, Ryan Stegman, Greg Pak, C.B. Cebulski, Charles Soule and Janine Schafer.
Soule spent a lot of time talking about Death of Wolverine and what will follow for the character and the Marvel Universe.
“The idea is not to bring him back,” Soule reiterated. “This isn’t one of those stories where he’s back in two weeks. The point is to tell an awesome ending story for Wolverine. I’m not gonna say he will never be brought back. I will say for sure that I’m very involved in all the Wolverine related discussions at Marvel right now and the thing we have not talked about at all is how to bring him back and I’m involved in discussions for stuff out into 2016 at this point.”
The plans beyond Death of Wolverine are going to be a direct sequel in the fall, which will be five issues, called Weapon X Project, which Soule is writing. The second DC panel of the weekend at Fan Expo revolved around the New 52 as a whole, with Larry Ganem moderating and panelists Jeff Lemire, Brian Azzarello, Greg Pak and David Finch.
The panel opened by teasing the last few issues of Azzarello’s Wonder Woman run with some previously released images. Azzarello promised, “There’s a revelation that’s never been touched on in her origin in the next issue [of Wonder Woman in October].”
While discussing Wonder Woman’s latest injury, he said of course she survives but “some of the other characters don’t survive.”
Azzarello has been writing Wonder Woman for three years now and said it was always planned that she would be the God of War by the end of his story. He also isn’t done yet with making an impact on Diana’s story as he teased a “real big reveal in 34. Then Secret Origin has a huge reveal.”
No clues on what any of those might be.
