Uhhh. That movie was anything but fantastic, yet, even so Miles Teller (played Reed Richards) is eager to take another crack at the story with the rest of his team. In a recent interview, Teller said the following on the matter:

“I loved the cast, I loved the characters. I think it’s such an interesting dynamic. I love how much they really need to rely on each other. This Avengers thing, they’ve kind of created their own Fantastic Four in a way, Marvel’s first family. Their powers can’t just exist on their own, you need Thor to do this, the Hulk to do his thing. So yeah, absolutely, I would do another one.”

The guy who has plans to sue Warner Bros. with his brother (who happens to be a lawyer) kicks off his fiery, inspired rant with just the kind of intro you'd expect...

My brother (who is a lawyer) and I are going to sue WB and DC for false advertising, misleading visual images and gaining a profit from us and millions others due to these acts. Our case has been accepted. We begin 11.08.16

And then he dives deep into all his reasoning for this madness...

"Movie Trailers are like food menus, they give you a preview of what your gonna get. If you look at a McDonald's menu and you choose to get your favourite burger, presented/showcased in a nice picture with pickles, chicken, mild cheese(you're favourite, in-fact...that's the only reason you're getting this burger...because you love mild cheese). So you use your hard worked money to pay for this burger, you get the burger, but only to find out that...this isn't the burger you ordered. Yes it has pickles and chicken...but...it doesn't have mild cheese...it has regular cheese.

Suicide Squad trailers showcased several SPECIFIC Joker scenes that I had to pay for the whole movie just so that I can go watch those SPECIFIC SCENES that WB/DC had advertised in their trailers and TV spots. These scenes are: When Joker banged his head on his car window, when Joker says, ''let me show you my toys'', when Joker punchs the roof of his car, when Joker drops a bomb with his face all messed up and says, ''BYE BYE!''. Non of these scenes were in the movie. I drove 300 miles to London to go watch these specific scenes they had explicitly advertised in their TV ads...and they didn't show them to me. Adding to this, they were also 2 specific Katana scenes they advertised that were also the reason I wanted to go watch the movie. These scenes were: Katana's eyes going black, and a slow motion shot of her and her sword taking souls...in a smokey kind of style. These scenes were advertised several times in the 1st trailer and many TV ads...but they didn't show it to me in the movie. I wasted alot of money paying and travelling to go watch this movie because of these specific scenes they had advertised to me and all of us saying, ''hey, check out our preview! this will all be in our movie, come watch it on the 5th!!''. All lies. I told the theatre about this unjust act and said I didn't get what I came here to see...can I have my money back. They laughed at me and kicked me out. So I'm now taking this to court. I want my refund, the trauma of being embarrassed as I was being kicked out and people laughing at me for wanting my refund, and also the 160 pounds of fuel money I used to drive to London from Scotland.

If you advertise something...give me what you have advertised. Period. This is becoming a habbit with movie studios, showing epic scenes in trailers...but their never shown in the movies. It's unjust.

I just want to say, join me if you feel the same way. Let's stop this nonsense of false bullshitery...and don't let them bribe you with their ''deluxe premium special directors gold extended edition supreme cut'' nonsense. You should get what they advertised as their first theatre showing and what you have paid for based on what they have showed you in their advertisements.

Our court process will begin on 11/08/16 this week."


Why so litigious, bruh?....



Alriiighty then...just wait for Jared Leto to lash out at this ridiculousness somehow.

Even though Edgar Wright had an unfortunate splitting of ways with Marvel and left Ant-Man early, due to creative differences, he can't seem to help noticing how many actors he's worked with have gone on to star in Marvel movies-- examples being Chris Evans in Captain America and Brie Larson announced for Captain Marvel.

Wright took to Twitter to express his most recent support of Anna Kendrick for the role of Marvel's Squirrel Girl:

We've all been waiting in eager anticipation for Suicide Squad to drop (comes out this Friday); and now that the reviews are finally rolling in...let's just say it ain't pretty--we're talking like mid-30%-not-pretty on Rotten Tomatoes.

And when you consider the more recent backlash over the Batman v Superman fiasco, the DC fans of the world are pretty dang irritated -- claiming these 'critics' are mere Marvel fanboys paid off by Marvel. 

Some of the more inspired DC fans have officially declared war on Rotten Tomatoes with a Change.org petition to remove the site from the internet altogether. See some of their reasoning below:

It's been eight years since Heath Ledger died from a lethal drug overdose. Heath Ledger's father recently sat down for an interview to discuss his son's truly tragic death.


“The last conversation Kate had with him was this discussion about his medications and she warned him, ‘‘You can’t mix drugs that you don’t know anything about’,” Ledger’s father Kim told news.com.au.

“He said ‘Katie, Katie, I’ll be fine’. Well, that’s a cavalier boy’s answer. It just put his whole system to sleep I guess,” Mr. Ledger said.

Heath's father went on to say that his son wasn't addicted to opioids--he just made the mistake of mixing the wrong drugs. And that Heath's chaotic work schedule had begun to take its toll on the actor.



“There is pressure on everybody, especially young people, to perform and to keep going. He was a young guy that travelled all the time for work. Even as a two-year-old, he hardly ever slept. He was trying to work and travel and do everything in a short space of time.”

RIP Heath Ledger you were a fiercely talented young man, taken from us all too soon.

Rumors surrounding the potential revival of 'The Tick' show have been running amok since 2014. 'The Tick' was created by Ben Edlund in 1986 as a mascot for the New England Comics comic book store chain. 



In 1988 the 'satirical' character was even given his own comic book series, which eventually went on to lead to an animated TV series on Fox in '94. 

Check out some photos that Amazon just released for the long awaited revival below!

Yes, Marvel's baddest villain's getting his own comic series folks. Writer Jeff Lemire, and artist Mike Deodato are set to chronicle Thanos' ongoing exploits in a new series that's launching as part of Marvel NOW.



It looks as if we'll be following Thanos for the long haul, as he attempts to regain his throne as Marvel's most feared 'n vile villain.



As for Thanos' mission in the new comic series, here's what writer Jeff Lemire had to say:

The loathing runs very deep here, guys. Just last week, Marvel released this year’s Spider-Gwen Annual, an 'alternate-reality series' that portrays a black female Captain America as a hero. The villain's known by everyone as the Mental Organism Designed as America’s King, or more crisply, “M.O.D.A.A.K.”

M.O.D.A.A.K. wails incessantly about 'foreign filth' and how he wants to squeeze 'n crush America in his allmighty powerful hands...

Readers have already been quick to note the glaring similarities between the comic's villain and Donald Trump himself:


@topbunkwanter




@sarcasticIwt

Judging by Latour's Twitter feed, which touts a marked dedication to a hatred targeted at Trump, you've gotta think the talented Marvel artist really was inspired enough out of a passionate hatred to create a villain that exists solely to make fun of Trump.

TIME reports that the relaunch of Invincible Iron Man features a new, albeit unexpected addition to the Marvel family -- Riri Williams, a 15-year-old who will be taking on the role of Iron Man. 

Her story takes off when she enrolls at MIT (happens to be one badass scientific genius), and builds an Iron Man suit in her dorm. Following the events in Captain America Civil War II, Tony Stark steps down as Iron Man, and Riri Williams steps up to take his place.

Creator, Brian Michael Bendis said the following about the new character during his interview with TIME, “it just seemed that sort of violence inspiring a young hero to rise up and act, and using her science acumen, her natural born abilities that are still raw but so ahead of where even Tony Stark was at that age, was very exciting to me.”

The new Invincible Iron Man makes its debut this fall.

The statue will be inscribed with the words ‘I’m just a kid from Brooklyn’, a line of dialogue from ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’.

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Captain America, Marvel just announced plans to unveil an enormous bronze statue of Captain America at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Cheers, Cap'n.
