Panther Set to Pounce

Marvel seems to be moving forward with a Black Panther movie. At least, they’ve gone so far as to hire a screenwriter. Granted, that’s probably the cheapest of the investments Marvel will have to make, unless they try to low-ball … Continue reading

There’ve been a couple of articles out about Edgar Wright and an Ant-Man movie. First off, good choice for a director. Second off, for all the Ant-Man haters, piss off. If Hank Pym is the problem, make it Scott Lang … Continue reading
