Movie: Who the hell is Ant-Man?

Over the next few years, in the lead up to The Avengers’ movie, Marvel Studios will introduce a couple of characters to the big screen, who may not necessarily be known to many outside of the comic book reading community. Personally, I’ve been quite taken aback by the idea that few ‘normals’ were aware of […]

Movie: The Incredible Hulk

Jon Favreau, quite rightfully, received a lot of attention both before and after the release of IRON MAN. From the announcement that he would be directing Marvel Studios first major movie release, he stepped forward and assured fans that he would be doing his best to see that the movie under his helm would be […]

Hulk: More Cross Overing?

Something that I’ve harped on about for a while now is the fact that Marvel has taken control over the way that their intellectual property is adapted to film (particularly since the five and a quarter million dollar credit arrangement was secured between Marvel Studios and Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc.), and how this will […]

Avengers?: Iron Man, Fury and the Hulk

Anyone who has spent any length of time follow my inarticulate ramblings here on elroyonline can probably tell you that my biggest issue with movie adaptations of comic-books is the fact that they constantly deviate from the established origin of a character or a landmark event in comic lore. Most recently my focus was on […]

Superheroes: Who’s Fantastic?

While watching Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer the other day it was finally solidified for me why it is that I find that particular team of Superheroes so… well, lame. It’s their powers! With the exception of Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) the others are hardly capable of standing on their own. Now, […]

Movie: S.H.A.Z.A.M

Even for a nerd like me the idea that Captain Marvel was once a more popular comic book hero than Superman is a hard fact to swallow. Especially when you take into account that DC comics (known as National Comics Publications at the time) were eventually able to sue the publishers of Captain Marvel (Fawcett […]

Fun, Yes – Fantastic, No.

So. I’m standing there.. It’s 9:30 am and I’m about to buy a ticket to see Fantastic Four. Why 9:30 am? I’ve got two words for you… “School” and “Holidays” – The fact is, I’m totally expecting this movie to bite. I’m really not “9:30 am” kind of keen to see it, I just don’t […]

Spider-Man 2: The gooder!

I didn’t hold the first Spider-Man movie in as high a regard as it seems everyone else did – Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t dislike it, I just thought that (of the franchise super-hero movies) Spider-man 1 [S1] was a little bit ‘bubble gum’ when compared to the likes of the X-Men. For me […]

Geek-a-paloosa: The collectors edition!

What an awesome time to be alive if you’re a geek! And if you’re not a Geek then there has never been a better time to get on the bandwagon! • I saw Daredevil today – Great stuff (almost). • The Hulk is on it’s way – ‘really looking forward to seeing if they can […]

I’m fanboy

Maybe, just maybe, 2003 is going to be an ‘up turn’ for the movie going idiot, such as myself. While it’s not likely to see the light of day in the next 12 months, probably not even the next 24, it does show some promise…. What am I talking about? Well, believe it or not […]
