The Swedish version of long-running comic strip "The Phantom" could be backing a woman to become the next full-time incarnation of the eponymous hero.
And here I thought Jared Leto trying to go 'method' for Joker by sending in used and abused condoms and anal beads, was as bad 'n sick 'n twisted as it'd ever get; but nah, turns out actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje had something up his sleeve. Akinnuoye-Agbaje says, “I did a lot of research on cannibalistic habits from back to the Mayans and the Aztecs, right up to modern-day cannibals.”
He says he'd also watch a video of a Japanese cannibal, Issei Sagawa, who killed and ate a Dutch woman. He kept it on his phone so he could play it every day...uh. Can't even, right now. Can't even.
“As sick as it sounds, the moment I start to play that video, I’m in the form of Croc, because it’s really important for this creature to be thirsty for flesh, even when he’s around The Squad.”
Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5th. Check out the trailer below:
Yes, Marvel's baddest villain's getting his own comic series folks. Writer Jeff Lemire, and artist Mike Deodato are set to chronicle Thanos' ongoing exploits in a new series that's launching as part of Marvel NOW.
It looks as if we'll be following Thanos for the long haul, as he attempts to regain his throne as Marvel's most feared 'n vile villain.
As for Thanos' mission in the new comic series, here's what writer Jeff Lemire had to say:
The loathing runs very deep here, guys. Just last week, Marvel released this year’s Spider-Gwen Annual, an 'alternate-reality series' that portrays a black female Captain America as a hero. The villain's known by everyone as the Mental Organism Designed as America’s King, or more crisply, “M.O.D.A.A.K.”
M.O.D.A.A.K. wails incessantly about 'foreign filth' and how he wants to squeeze 'n crush America in his allmighty powerful hands...
Readers have already been quick to note the glaring similarities between the comic's villain and Donald Trump himself:
Judging by Latour's Twitter feed, which touts a marked dedication to a hatred targeted at Trump, you've gotta think the talented Marvel artist really was inspired enough out of a passionate hatred to create a villain that exists solely to make fun of Trump.
Alright, SPOILERS revealed in the paragraph below. Only keep reading if you want to know!
Last month many of us were left shellshocked, as jaws dropped to the floor and we learned Captain America had been a Hydra sleeper agent since he was a boy in Captain America: Steve Rogers #1.
Thing is, in spite of what Rogers might recall from his childhood, everything is not as it originally seemed. Indeed, from the creative team of writer Nick Spencer and artist Jesus Saiz, we learn in Captain America: Steve Rogers #2 that Steve's 'memories of indoctrination' were implanted by Kobic, the sentient cube that became a girl. And the buck don't stop there...it turns out Kobic had been under the influence of Red Skull for months.
There's a new villain on The Walking Dead, and he's been on the horizon for quite some time.
Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan will play Negan, the infamous bad guy in the comic book series that terrorizes Rick Grimes and his gang. The character is the leader of a group known as The Saviors that uses violence to control other communities.
As you can see from the panel below, Negan is a super nice guy who is totally reasonable.
Negan also does a not very nice thing to Glenn Rhee in the comic books with his baseball bat "Lucille." But since Glenn is currently chilling under a dumpster, there's no reason to believe that story line will actually happen on the show.
Showrunner Scott M. Gimple told THR that bringing Negan to the show will create some exciting challenges.
"There's a particular story in that arc that I'm very excited for. But because we know where we're going, we have some opportunities to play around with it and put some things in that will lead up to [Negan and Alexandria] in different ways yet fulfill the story Robert told to the Nth degree by utilizing some slightly different approaches. Lineups and timelines and the whole nine yards."
Morgan will appear on the season finale of TWD as a guest star and then be promoted to regular cast member for season 7.
Fictional Family Tree of the Day: Joe Stone wraps up his trilogy of comic book family trees with a confusing look at the ties that bind the Avengers.
I tried to squeeze as many of the Avengers characters on there as I could, but basically just ran out of room towards the end. Hope you like it!
