Incoming bold statement: the original Guardians of the Galaxy team is better than the modern one. I’m talking about the 1960s team here, I think they are better in a lot of ways. The stakes always felt much higher in the 1960s arc, because the Galaxy was in rough shape. The original team tackled more dystopian and dark problems, while the modern team has a more comical approach to things. Which is fine, I love the modern team, but a dark and depressing Guardians team is an awesome read every time. With all of that being said, I was kind of nervous when I heard they were re-launching the old team. Then I read Dan Abnett’s story, and all nervousness was forgotten.

Guardians_3000_1_Preview_4

It’s good. Like really good. Definitely in the top three of the best comics I have read this year. It’s a compelling story that makes you ask a lot of hard questions, and keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole issue. NOW is the time to jump on board this series, the characters are fresh and exciting, the plot is easy to follow and thrilling, and it features one of the most vicious enemies in the Marvel universe. The modern Guardians may be lovable, but Guardians 3000 are badass. And that’s a huge understatement. I’m not saying give up on Modern Guardians, but in my humble opinion the Guardians 3000 are one of the best super teams out there. Pick up this issue now before you get 4 or 5 issues behind and can’t catch up! And lets hope Abnett keeps up the great work.

With the Avengers: Age of Ultron filming all wrapped up, the cast get asked about the anticipated sequel each time they go on a talk show or have an interview. Both Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner have opened up about their excitement for the film. During an interview on The Morning Show of Australia Thor star talked about wrapping up filming and on his plans after including his Marvel contract:

“We just shot the last Avengers, finished a couple months ago. It’s exciting if not more than the first one was to see all those characters come back together.”

“At some stage, yeah. I still got three more in my contract that I need to finish off, but I love playing the character. So, I’m not in any hurry to finish doing that. It’s nice to be able to fit different things in between.”

thorttdw

Marvel’s famous archer, Hawkeye aka Jeremy Renner is a bit more detailed in why he’s excited for the film and actually says that Hawkeye and HULK will have bigger roles in the film more than in the first film, which is no surprise as Hawkeye get’s brain washed into being a bad guy for most of the first film.

He also touches on the subject of a potential solo movie for Hawkeye saying that he isn’t fussed about a solo movie and is happy to appear as the character in the other Marvel movies but that he has signed on for doing a movie after Avengers 3 if they decide to do one:

“I’m happy to be the ensemble. I’m not scratching or clawing to do a solo movie by any means, I think he’s a utility guy that can bounce around into other people’s universes a little bit, especially like Cap 3.”

“I think most actors will sign on to do, like… Captain America 1-3 and then The Avengers 1-3, and then you’re done. For me, I signed on to The Avengers 1-3 and then Hawkeye, in case they want to do a Hawkeye spin-off.”

eatest92

There is a rumour that Hawkeye will appear in Captain America 3 and have a more prominent role in Captain America 3, kind of like how Black Widow helped Cap out in the Winter Soldier. He honestly says he hasn’t spoken to Marvel about it but that he knows it starts next spring:

“Oh, that’s a rumor all right. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I know it’s going to start shooting in March. I haven’t had any official conversations about doing it or not.”

If he is in the film it should be a big role as the third Captain America film is meant to change the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Let’s talk about Gotham.

There will be critics and fans alike that, after watching, will declare some extreme opinion, for or against, at the wrap up of the pilot or, now, second episode. For this writer, a resounding, “That was okay,” is the best I can muster. The show leaves you feeling played. There are so many moments where the writers and producers seem to be going, “How about that, huh? What did you think of that? Yeah, we did that for you.” I feel like someone is trying to gear me into thinking this show is cooler than it actually is or, at least, has been so far.

Interestingly, most of the detractors I’ve read have said they didn’t care for Benjamin McKenzie as Jim Gordon, but Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock is perfect. I would agree to a point. McKenzie as Gordon feels a little out of his element. Where the actor’s ability and the script begin or end is up for debate, but whatever you decide, the end result is the same because his character is also out of his element. He’s the rookie, the jaded soldier who wants to do right to make up for past wrongs. Gordon comes off a bit like he’s trying too hard, but with Bullock’s cynical position rooted firmly in the gray area of Gotham morality, it somehow works. This partnership and its glaring parallels to movies like L.A. Confidential will serve the show well. The worry, however, is that rather than making a comic book television program or a gritty cop drama they will try to do both and, walking that tight rope will leave the show as smashed to pieces in the center ring as Dick Grayson’s parents. Ouch. I went there.

gotham chronicle

We’re two episodes in and, so far, it feels like a cop drama occassionally wearing comic baddie Halloween masks. Most troublesome of all, so far, was the completely unnecessary name dropping of “Ivy” at a random suspect’s apartment door. I hear the producers again going, “Eh? Get it? Because Poison Ivy.” Next in line, and certainly a more ongoing concern, is the idea of Selena Kyle not only being “Cat,” with near-fully realized Catwoman abilities, but her presence in the shadow of Bruce’s life from the outset.

Catwoman is an important character, one of the greats, but the issue with this kind of prequel storytelling is time. To start Selena off this young, this connected to Bruce Wayne, and follow this trend through the implied twenty-five-plus years of young Bruce’s approach to Batman, it is impossible for this young criminal not to learn Bruce’s secret before he has even developed. Moreover, it is impossible for her to not somehow be responsible for helping to create him. Which leads to the problem of episode two.

Gotham-Episode-1.03-The-Balloonman-Promotional-Photos-7_FULL

Selena “Cat” Kyle is held captive with a number of other homeless youths and manages to slip away, violently attack one of her captors and very nearly free all of her peers before Gordon arrives in the nick of time. My first thought: so Bruce isn’t Batman yet, therefore Selena Kyle will do the job for him. A crimefighting, teenage Catwoman is cool, in theory, but it diminishes the achievement and the originality of Batman. If there is going to be some kind of fighting, sneaking, elusive street level hero from the time of Bruce Wayne’s childhood, how is he going to strike fear and intimidation into the hearts of criminals twenty years after this idea became old news? It’s a mistake.

On the topic of people knowing Bruce’s secret too early, and possibly helping to develop it, having Jim Gordon as a mentor character for young Bruce is equally thin ice. If this guy is going to be visiting and counseling the young Wayne heir every week, how is he going to ever be surprised or unaware that Bruce Wayne is the Dark Knight? He’d have to be the worst detective, the worst friend even, to not see this coming.

Which leads us to yet another problem. We’re two episodes in, as I said, and we have already seen Bruce attempting to defeat fear by standing on a ledge like the bat that he will someday become, and defeat pain by putting his hand in a flame. The obvious conclusion is that Bruce already has a plan, that he is already developing into Batman in spite of the fact that it’s only been a week since his parents died. Again, the time issue arises. If he’s this far along in episode two, where will he be by season 2? He’s going to be running around in a domino mask and black tights like a wannabe Robin before we know it and well on his way to donning the cowl before the show or the character’s history are ready.

gotham-2

It’s disappointing to say, but two of the most interesting prospects for Gotham have already been missed and, apart from the occasional flashback, it’s too late. This could have been a show about Thomas Wayne and his wife before they died. We could have gotten to know them, their work, their achievements, failures, corruptibility and importance to the city. This show was our chance to watch, in real time, the story of their influence over the future and potential of Gotham City, all while seeing their fate ahead of them even when Bruce, Jim, the crime bosses, and the Waynes themselves could not. The season finale of season one could have been their deaths, not the season premiere.

Similarly, this was also our chance to get to know a young, untarnished Bruce. We could have seen his talents, his potential, and even his child aspirations for the future before his life is transmuted by a gun. This was an opportunity to see him innocent, with a keen mind and talent for athletics or reasoning, and how he would take those innocent powers and sharpen them into weapons. Instead, the writers gave us the same old tired origin story and some cheap character cameos.

As for what the show gets right. The guy playing the Penguin is incredibly creepy and appears to be on a path toward serial killing and building an underworld empire. Despite the initial irritation of tossing in a young Penguin, this actor and his storyline has the potential to carry the show. Edward Nygma, aka The Riddler, working for the Gotham City Police Department is an interesting take on future storylines where The Riddler works with the police to solve crimes and is also a bit of a shout out to the premise of “Hannibal” where we see a young villain working for the law even as he is breaking it, or in Edward’s case, will very soon. The potential to fall in love with this character, to get to know his more sensitive side and to enjoy his presence as both comic relief and thought-provoking sidekick, could all serve to deepen the emotion of his inevitable collapse into insanity and betrayal. Falcone is chilling. The presence of the violent crimes division as the only decent police in Gotham is inspired, making the good guys antagonists for Gordon and Bullock while also existing as a sign of things to come for Jim Gordon’s future career as the head of that division years later (if you’ve read Batman: Year One) all bring a depth and friction to the cop drama side of the story. And, perhaps best of all, this cockney, in your face approach to Alfred Pennyworth is just plain cool.

robin-lord-taylor-gotham-villains-teaser-fox

Add it all up and, as I said, you get a resounding, “This was okay.” But we should all keep watching. It takes a little while to work out the kinks and figure out what a show is all about. I have hope balancing out my disappointment and I do know that, no matter what, it’s a well cast drama and the main character, as the title decries, is the city itself. And who doesn’t love Gotham?

Dominic Cooper briefly appeared as Howard Stark Toney Starks farther in Captain America: The First Avenger, as well as appearing in the Marvel One-Shot “Agent Carter,” but now Cooper is to return in the upcoming “Agent Carter” TV series. Marvel didn’t give any further detail about Coopers involvement just that he would in some way be involved.

We do know however that he will reteam with Hayley Atwell, who played Peggy Carter in the Captain America blockbuster, set in the 1940s.

The plot will vaguely follow the format that Peggy Carter had been dealt a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America.

Also starring in the TV series are Chad Michael Murray as SSR Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as SSR Agent Daniel Sousa, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, and Shea Whigham as SSR Chief Roger Dooley

Agents of SHIELD S2E02 “Heavy is the Head”

After last week’s high impact episode, this week sees a bit of a slow-down in pace as the core themes of the season are sown. The unknown artefact from last week proves to be the focal point, and obtaining it back from Creel and Hydra is a priority. Creel himself is not in a good way, having discovered that his absorbing powers have taken some aspects of the device, which he cannot control as well as before. Elsewhere Fitz is still trying to prove he can be useful again, but struggles to fit in, whilst Coulson starts to show some angst at being confined to a desk as the new Director of SHIELD.

Whilst there is a slowdown pace wise, the lack of action doesn’t necessarily mean lack of story, and quite a few elements get pushed along this week. An adversary from last season, Raina (played by the always excellent Ruth Negga), crops up again, but could the enemy of your enemy really be your friend? In addition Nick Blood is coming into his own as new member of the team Lance Hunter, who was introduced to comics in Captain Britain Weekly issue 19 back in 1977. This ex-SAS operative adds an almost belligerent attitude to authority that was missing in amongst Coulson’s team, which Coulson uses in this episode in order to manipulate events. Also starting to shine is Adrian Pasdar as General Talbot, a character who was a villain hunting The Hulk in the comics, but here is tracking and monitoring the activities of the ex-SHIELD team. Hopefully the character will become more than just a generic foil for the group, comically hunting them down only to be conned into helping them, and in this episode in particular we get to understand a bit more of why he continues to hunt Coulson down even though he sees they are doing good.



The episode does slightly suffer from bringing back some of the snarky attitude that sometimes plagued season one, especially with Coulson. In the films Coulson was witty, but never in a seemingly forced manner. Here, as with some of last year, it is as though he has rehearsed snarky put-downs ready to draw on when the moment comes. Last week saw Coulson as a much more straight laced character, and I hope they move more toward that portrayal than him throwing out quips every few minutes. However, once again the highlights of the episode relate to Iain De Caestecker as Fitz, and Elizabeth Henstridge as Simmons. The pair could be quite weak and annoying last year, but have both grown as actors, and have one of the strongest role twists in the show (cautious about dropping spoilers for those who haven’t watched last week’s yet).

Epsiode 2 may not be as dynamic as the first one was, but as a plot builder episode it does the trick well, and the tease for the next episode looks like it is set to be a belter.

Game Review: IRON MAN 2
Released 2010
By Brad Stokes

“Two Heroes, Two Suits, One Mission” so the tag line states; I liked the fact that you can choose to suit up as Iron Man or War Machine when playing this game.

Released in 2010 to strike whilst the Iron man 2 film was hot, the game version does not follow the storyline of the film. Instead, under the watchful eyes of Nick fury and Natasha Romanov of S.H.I.E.L.D. your main aim is to defeat the 20 foot tall Crimson Dynamo operated by the Russian Separatist Leader, General Valentin Shatalov as well as the tall as a skyscraper Ultimo built from stolen Stark technology.

In fact most of the enemies are robots which are quite easy to defeat unlike the bosses and leaders who seem to be more tricky to dispose of.

At the “Headquarters” you are able to choose your suit and arm it the way you want, to suit what mission you will be undertaking.

Not all suits are available the whole time but will become available when missions are completed and high scores are achieved.

95b2c169508c35f4154724153a39a31e

As for the graphics, I think they are poor even by 2010 standards, I think Sega focused more on the storylines and missions than graphical quality.

Also I think they made a big mistake in having this game rated a 16 because Iron Man appeals to a younger audience who I think would have been disappointed at not being able to buy it.
I didn’t find the game too violent and think it should have been rated a 12 to grab another slice of the market pie.

I like the way the creators steered away from the film storyline to tell their own version to create the element of surprise throughout the game.

Not brilliant but not bad either.

As we approach the back end of 2014, a year which has given us some highlights such as Guardians of the Galaxy and some low-points such as Transformers 4, we tend to see another build up of ‘event’ films, and one or two smaller releases of note tucked in between. For fans of comics, sci-fi, and action in general, here are a few to look ahead to in the coming months.

teenage_mutant_ninja_turtles_ver15_xlgFirst up, like or loathe the idea, but there is no denying that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are going to make an impact on October 17th when they finally hit the UK screens. Adapted from the famous comic book, this new updated origin of the characters tweaks the history a little, but still looks set to pack out with the action, humour, and adventure that the series has been known for. Anyone worried that this will be the lowest point in the franchise’s history cannot have seen Turtles In Time. Whilst reviews in the US were not strong, audience responses have been more positive, so maybe it is one of those films where you need to find out for yourself.

If that all seems a little bit too much, then on the same date we see the live action adaptation of the Japanese manga Kuroshitsuji, or Black Butler, released. The tale tells of a boy who uses an enslaved demon butler to exact revenge on those who wronged him and his family, and looks to deliver visual style and anime-inspired action in the same manner that live action adaptations of properties such as Wicked City and Crying Freeman did so well. Any fans of manga or anime should check their local cinemas to see if they will be showing this one.

7Du30vMIn November we get to see what Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has been up to for the past couple of years as his sci-fi project Interstellar blasts off on 7th November. As with usual Nolan films, the secrecy around the plot details is impossible to break through, but what we do know is that the film sees Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and long time Nolan collaborator Michael Caine in a tale about space travel and wormholes. Nolan is a director that many have come to love and trust to deliver great films, and with him filming elements of the film in IMAX format, then you know it is going to look amazing. Could this be the film to top the box office takings of Guardians?

On Monday 17th November, Cineworld in Sheffield will have an exclusive screening of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service at 7pm. This special showing of one of the best Bond films, and the only one which saw George Lazenby in the role, sees Bond take on Blofeld whilst falling for Diana RIgg (who wouldn’t?), and is one of the underappreciated outings for 007 which definitely deserves to be revisited.

Fans of action, and in particular that involving tournaments where teenagers are set against each other, will be glad to know that the Hunger Games franchise is ramping up to the end-game as Mockingjay Part 1 releases on 21st November.

hr_The_Hobbit-_The_Battle_of_the_Five_Armies_3But for many, the high point of this end of the year is surely The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, which is released on 12th December in 2D, 3D and IMAX formats, and also in that HFR (High Frame Rate) format that you either love or hate. This final chapter in the tale of Bilbo and the band of Dwarves will tell what Smaug the dragon did next, and once that’s out the way still have around 2 hours of film to finish off. However, unlike Lord of the Rings which spent almost half the film with false endings, this time the back end of the film will focus on the Battle of Five Armies of the title. Fans of the book will know what to expect, but for those who don’t know the source, get ready for some shocks, surprises, and lots of action.

So, there we have the end of 2014. Keep an eye out for reviews of some of these films in the coming months, and then get ready to get excited for 2015 because that is set to be a HUGE year for films.

We’ve been working hard over the past few weeks to improve The Vault – our comic valuation and online store – and you can now check out its spangly new look here.

We’ve had a great response to The Vault so far, including enquiries about a couple of comic collections that have really piqued our interest. If you have a rare comic or a whole collection you’d like valuing, get in touch today.

The Vault ShopBut the biggest improvements have been to our comic store. We’ve made it easier to navigate and buy some great collectable comics – with items to suit all tastes and budgets. We’re adding new items from our vast collection everyday, so keep checking back, or drop us a line if there’s something specific you’re after.

Plus, we now ship worldwide.

We want to make The Vault the best place to buy comics online.
