It’s CBC time!
Jim has all the scoop on the new Captain America film and a little more on the Flash series sneak peak tthat we talked about earlier. It’s amazing how many properties are getting turned into series and films these days.
Crazy I tell you! I am super stoked for the new Captain America film though. I think it’s going to be awesome.
Check out this weeks CBC after the jump!
Hello Comic Book fans and welcome back to this weeks Comic Book Crossover where we take a look at this weeks hot new publications and how these stories are transitioning from their original four-color medium to Television and Movies.
First things first with less than a month until Captain America: The Winter Soldier is released Fandango has posted a 4-minute clip. Go check it out, the scene is really well done and an excellent way to get the fans excited for the movie. That along with the new individual posters and the toys at the local stores and we could be seeing an Avengers level event that will keep everyone talking about the next Marvel installment well into the summer.
Even my wife says she’s looking forward to the new movie, although there is a chance she’s lying just to keep me happy.
Next up we have the first picture of the Flash for the new CW TV show The Flash. I love the look and I LOVE the tease. This is a really fun way to not give to much away but keep the fans interested and talking about the potential of this new show. I’m really looking forward to a well orchestrated night next fall where the CW owns the comic book community. I’m guessing Wednesday’s would be the best day since that’s also known as new comic book day. For those that don’t know new books come out on Wednesday. What a good way to build up excitement from their core demo while interweaving a fun and exciting universe that doesn’t consist of vampires.
Now on to this weeks haul, yes I spent way to much money this week and no the wife has no idea. What could i do, this week had some awesome new books. It’s my addiction. We have 3 new series starting this week that make up my picks of the week. Magneto #1, what can i say? The Master of Magnetism is one of the biggest of the bads and for those that love a fun intriguing story along with a free digital download how can you not pick this issue up.
Up next is Moon Knight #1 which also comes with a free digital download. This series is being written by Warren Ellis. This guy is one of the greats and in his hands he can turn a third rate hero into a top notch read. If you’re a fan of Batman but wish he was just a bit more psychotic then this is your book.
Lastly we have Starlight #1 written by the incredible Mark Millar. For those not in the know Mark Millar created Marvel’s Ultimates which is a more current version of the Avengers. His original stories are what guided the marvel Movie Universe, he’s also the guy that created Kick-Ass and Wanted which were both turned into hit movies.
Well this week we have Starlight #1 and along with its subtle nod to Flash Gordon it’s a fun read that could be the next Millar property to make its may to the silver screen. If you loved the Flash Gordon of the ’80’s then you could look at this story as what happens after Flash and Dale get back to Earth. Pick it up, you can’t go wrong.
That’s it for me, have a good week.
