Cover Page of Promotional Newspaper

One month after its premiere opening, Spider-Man: No Way Home is sitting comfortably as the #8 Highest Grossing Movie of all time. During premiere weekend, promotional movie newspapers at a real-life pop-up Daily Bugle stands were sold in New York City. Game & Comic acquired one of these newspapers to share the fun-filled articles inside.

This week Season One of Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D will premiere on Netflix. The show revolves around the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division or the secretive government agency introduced in The Avengers to investigate superhuman phenomena from Thor to Captain America.

Joss Whedon is the series executive producer. The show has been on the rise with popularity since it’s debut (currently on season two).

Last year, Netflix and Disney signed a multiyear deal where Marvel will develop four original live action series by 2015. The series will be based on four of Marvel’s fan favorite street-hero characters like Daredevil, then Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage.

S.H.I.E.L.D will streaming on Netflix November 20th.

Deadpool is known for sass and wit– so for Marvel’s 75th anniversary its pretty in his character to photobomb the iconic covers in marvel’s history. 


After the slew of celebrity ASL Ice Bucket Challenge videos this week, Guardians of the Galaxy actor Vin Diesel took the “Ice Bucket Challenge” attention to redirect to another vital cause. The actor called for fans to “plant a tree for Groot”.


Marvel's Current Deadpool (#1) Comic Series

Marvel’s Current Deadpool (#1) Comic Series

Marvel’s most infamous anti-hero is one step closer to starring in his own feature film! (more…)

Comic readers are well exposed to the many adaptations, replacements and evolution of favored superheros. Now the future of Captain America or at least Steve Rogers is changing again. Over the weekend, Marvel posted on Tumblr “Who will be Marvel comic’s new #Captain America?…” after the tragedy in Captain America #21. Beware, spoilers ensue.


Marvel released details of the fall event series where two best sellers, Avengers and X-men, will join up again (after Uncanny Avengers) against a common super villain.

The upgraded villain of the series is Red Skull, as known from Captain America, and his telepathic powers gained from parts of Professor Xavier’s brain… Ah, the perfect mixture of the two groups.


Coming up this summer– the showdown between Hulk and Iron Man. Four issues of Original Sin #3.1-3.4, co written by Hulk writer Mark Waid and Iron Man writer Kieron Gillen, deal with the revelation that Stark potentially designed the gamma bomb…. you know, the one that turned Bruce Banner into the Hulk.There’s some thirty plus years of Banner’s personal guilt trips gone down the drain.
