CHECK OUT COMIC VINE’S REVIEW OF FLASH GORDON

THE Comic Vine Review by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero

If you ever seen Flash Gordon in animated, live-action or printed form, you will be in for a treat. If you're not familiar with the characters, get ready to meet them for the first time.

Whether you've read any of Flash Gordon's old exploits or watched the 80s movie or various animated attempts, the idea is known to pretty much everyone. Flash Gordon is a normal human who has been placed in a situation to save Earth from invaders.

The Good
Dynamite has revived several franchises over the years and many have been with great success. While I was never a true die-hard Flash Gordon fan, I became more than familiar with the characters due to the different portrayals over the years. I've enjoyed the different revivals Dynamite has taken with old properties and thought I'd give this series a shot, mainly due to Francesco Francavilla's involvement with the variant covers. I was more than pleasantly surprised.

The first wise decision was to keep this grounded in the original time period of 1934. The issue captures the feeling of what a Flash Gordon story should be like. The art is amazing. Daniel Indro is a name you should take note of. He gives that painted feel full of detail yet still remains true to the pulp-feel of the time period. Check out the first five pages below.For the full review visit Comic Vine!

The promo for Assassin’s Creed is kicking into high gear as we get an extended look at a carriage chase scene in the past. The look of the movie continues to be interesting but whether or not it’s going to be the first great video game adaptation is still very much in the air.

Assassin’s Creed is directed by Justin Kurzel and stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. It opens worldwide in December 21, 2016.

A new clip for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has appeared online during a twitter Q&A with the cast. The clips shows us that Jyn (Felicity Jones) and Cassian (Diego Luna) do not exactly trust each other in the beginning and also shows us the kind of humor K-2SO (Alan Tuduyk) is going to bring. Note: there is a bit of an overlay with the cast during the beginning of the clip.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Alan Tudyk, Ben Mendelsohn, and Forest Whitaker. It opens December 16th, 2016.

andrew_sachs

It has just been revealed that a week and a half ago, on 23rd November, comedy actor Andrew Sachs best known for his role as Manuel in BBC sitcom Fawlty Towers, died.

As Manuel, he played a slapstick comic foil toJohn Cleese‘s Basil Fawlty, and was generally the receiver of comedy violence – a few times actual violence, such as being hit hard on the head by Cleese’s saucepan, and suffering second-degree acid burns when his character was set on fire. But the role did give him a level of permanent fame, both in Britain and around the world.

Later, he took roles in Britain two biggest soap operas Coronation Street and Eastenders. He played roles in Big Finish’s Doctor Who audio dramas. Indeed he was a regular voice actor for children’s animation, shows like The Troubleshooter and That Peter Kay Thingand was a regular actor on BBC Radio 4 dramas. He played The Book in the recent stage adaptation of Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy, played Tooley in the radio adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s Neverwhere and played Tolliver Groat in the Discworld drama Going Postal.

He was diagnosed with vascular dementia four years ago, and after a bout of pneumonia earlier this year, he moved into a home for retired actors.

DF News' condolences to his family, friends and many fans.

SIGOURNEY WEAVER TALKS ABOUT HER VILLAINESS ROLE IN ‘MARVEL’S THE DEFENDERS’

One of the big reveals at New York Comic Con 2016 was that legendary actor Sigourney Weaver would be playing the villain in the Netflix series Marvel’s The Defenders. The room exploded when this announcement was made but there haven’t been any hints as to who Weaver will be playing. Marvel has already proven that they are willing to gender swap roles in the Netflix series like they did with Carrie-Ann Moss’ character Jeri Hogarth so she could play almost anyone. In an interview with Variety Weaver was asked about the role and she, predictably, couldn’t say anything of note.

“I can’t say much, because they might kill me,” Weaver joked. “I think everyone I work for might kill me if I tell you anything. But I have the most delicious character. She’s really smart, and she’s very in charge.”

The adjective ‘delicious’ means that Weaver is likely enjoying this role and that we’re going to enjoy it as well.

Marvel’s The Defenders stars Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Finn Jones, and Sigourney Weaver. It is set to premiere in 2017.

In January, DC Comics is publishing theKamandi Challenge, where 40 different creators in 20 different teams tell their own Kamandi stories, picking up after each other, creating an exquisite corpse between them.

Well, DC Comics don’t want you to forget the original. Which is why they are collectingKamandi, The Last Boy On Earth #1-#40, all of Jack Kirby‘s issues, into an omnibus volume to come out alongside the new stories, in July next year.

Jack Kirby’s Kamandi Omnibus Hardcover – July 25, 2017:

In what is considered the series’ greatest tale, Kamandi is forced to compete with the leader of a gorilla clan for the ultimate prize: Superman’s costume!

aquaman

Aquaman finally has a release date. The Warner Bros superhero pic starring Jason Momoa and directed by James Wan will hit theaters October 5, 2018 in both 3D and Imax.

Aquaman made his cinematic debut earlier this year via a short cameo in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The character will next be seen in a major role in the Zack Snyder-directed follow up Justice League, which sees the major heroes of the DC Universe united to face off against DC Villain Steppenwolf.

The Aquaman stand-alone film stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman — aka Arthur Curry, king of Atlantis — alongside Amber Heard as Mera, Queen of Atlantis in the comics and likely to fill the same role here.

Currently, the pic is the only one to stake out the release date.
'THE WOODS' TV SERIES BASED ON BOOM! COMIC IN WORKS AT SYFY WITH BRAD PEYTON

Syfy has put in development The Woods, an hourlong sci-fi drama based on Boom! Studios’ flagship graphic novel series, with San Andreas helmer Brad Peyton producing and set to direct.

Written by Michael Armbruster based on the comic by James Tynion IV and illustrator Michael Dialynas, the thriller is a co-production between Boom! Studios and Peyton’s ASAP Entertainment. It is set in Wisconsin where an entire high school campus — including the 300 students, teachers, parents and workers who happened to be there at the time – vanishes without a trace and reappears in the middle of the thick woods on the moon of a distant planet. Now their normal lives have suddenly and dramatically changed as they must survive the eerie and dangerous environment while desperately trying to find a way to get back home.

In addition to directing, Peyton will executive produce alongside his producing partner, Jeff Fierson. Also executive producing are Armbruster and Boom!’s Ross Richie and Stephen Christy. Josh Levy from Boom! will co-executive produce. Universal Cable Productions, where the project was set up a year ago, is the studio.

“We’ve always seen this title as having the potential to be a stand-out sci-fi property, and there’s no better team to do that with than with Boom! and the teams at UCP/Syfy,” said Peyton and Fierson.

BOOM

The Woods, currently on Issue 27 of a planned 36-issue run, is one of the longest-running series for Boom! The comic recently was named a 2016 Best Graphic Novel for Young Adults by YALSA.
MARVEL TOPS DC WITH CRITICS CHOICE NOMINATIONS

DC vs Marvel Header

While both of DC's film offerings this year were incredibly successful at the box office this year, the films were anything but beloved by the critics. It makes sense then that Marvel Studios took the top honors with ease in this year's Critics Choice Awards nominations.

Doctor Strange alone was nominated more than the DC's film offerings combined, with nominations in Best Hair and Makeup, Best Visual Effects, Best Action Movie, Best Actor In An Action Movie (Benedict Cumberbatch), Best Actress In An Action Movie (Tilda Swinton), and Best Sci-Fi Horror Movie (via EW). Deadpool and Captain America: Civil War also made contributions, though, with Deadpool being nominated for Best Action Movie, Best Actor In An Action Movie (Ryan Reynolds), Best Comedy, and Best Actor In A Comedy (Ryan Reynolds).

Captain America: Civil War added three nominations for Best Action Movie, Best Actor In An Action Movie (Chris Evans), and Best Actress In An Action Movie (Scarlett Johansson).

DC had a rather dismal showing, and honestly, if it weren't for the stellar performances from their female cast, they wouldn't even have made the list at all. Both nominations were in the Best Actress In An Action Movie category, where Gal Gadot was nominated for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Margot Robbie was nominated for her turn as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Both are well deserved, but DC and Warner Bros. can't have been pleased that either film was left out of every other category.
