Spierman 4 Mary Jane Will Be Back

It is official, Sony executive Todd Black spoke to the New York Post and confirmed that Kristen Dunst is signed on to return as Mary Jane in Spiderman 4.  For better or worse, Dunst will be returning. While I don’t think that she was the best original choice for the role, I am happy to see that the cast is staying constant in Raimi’s Spiderman universe. Nothing is more distracting for me as a viewer than having roles recast in film sequels. By the time I accept them in the role, the film is over and they have already been recast in the next one.

We’ve speculated about possible Spiderman 4 villains in the past, but now we have something to work with (well, not much actually).  Black told the Post, “We’re just coming up with who the villain’s going to be now. We’ll be shooting in New York again. Trust me, people will appreciate who we pick, because it’ll be a big part of New York.” What would be cooler than seeing the Vulture flying around and terrorizing New York City? Sure, that quote can apply to ANY Spiderman villain (Black knows that Spidy has been located in NY for his entire history, right?), but no one else would give the filmmakers a chance to show it in such a beautiful/soring way. I get chills just thinking about it.

What about you, who do you think Spiderman will be facing off against?

Marvel Superhero Creator, Avatar Creator

Wow, I’m not sure what it is, but I seem to be in a Marvel Comics mood this weekend with articles. All morning, I’ve been obsessed with both the Marvel Superhero Squad and making heroes with their Superhero Creator. Sure, the creator is very limited in its options, but it is still fun to mix and match and make your own variations on existing Marvel characters. MHD-Man above was made with the creator (added the logo in photoshop). Click out the link above to make your own Marvel style superhero.

Uncanny X-Men 510 Preview

To be honest, I gave up the X-Men comics for a while.  Don’t get me wrong, the 12 issue “Messiah Complex” crossover was awesome, but I felt like the line of X-Books couldn’t keep of the quality afterwards. I dropped the three core titles (has Ellis’ Astonishing X-Men had more than two issues?), Young X-Men, and X-Force, but keep following X-Factor (one of the best ongoings on the market) and Cable.

Recently, the X-Men ditched the mansion in Westchester (they could only keep rebuilding it so many times), and now moved to the Graymalkin Facility, a fortress like complex, in San Fransisco, where they were welcomed with open arms. They are working on their PR and trying to be proactive, instead of just defensive, for a change. Along with the move came new enemies, including the Hellfire Cult, and some familiar ones, including the Sisterhood run by an ultra powerful reincarnated Madelyn Pryor.

In the new issue, #510, the Sisterhood makes their move and attacks Graymalkin. What do they want? Will everyone survive? I’m not sure, but for the first time in a while, I’m interested to see what will happen to my favorite mutants. The issue came out last week and can currently be bought in stores and on news stands.

Chris Hemsworth is Thor

Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that Chris Hemsworth has been cast in Marvel Studios’ upcoming big screen Thor movie.  The 25 year old Australian actor can currently be seen in the Star Trek reboot as the heroic Captain George Kirk. While he doesn’t have much screen time in Trek, he makes the best of what he was given with a powerful presence and a very memorable sequence.

Will he make a good Thor? I honestly have no idea. I’ve never seen his Australian TV series Home and Away, and Trek was his first big feature. Thor is a larger than life superhero (who also happens to be a God). Kenneth Branagh is directing the film for Marvel with an expected release date of May 20th, 2011.

ItsJustSomeRandomGuy’s latest “Hi, I’m a Marvel… and I’m a DC” spoof features Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine chatting it up with the Watchmen. I LOVE this series and this one hits the nail on the head. This is Deadpool!

Better late than never?  Happy Monday!

Fantastic Four Cartoon, Marvel ComicsFantastic Four: World’s Greatest Heroes was an animated series that had a lot of potential, but was ultimately a let down due to an ever changing timeslot and the network airing the episodes out of order.

Twenty-six episodes of the series were made and showcases the team facing off with such villains as Namor, Puppet Master, Impossible Man, and Doctor Doom, and teaming up with other heroes such as the Hulk. Iron Man, Ant-Man, and She-Hulk. All of the episodes are currently up on Marvel’s site and can be watched online.
