Comic Book News - 9/13/18 Comic Book News - 9/13/18

For some reason, a lot of comic book news dropped today and, unfortunately, not all of it was good. io9 hasn’t covered it yet, so I’ll try to cover everything:

Iron Fist Season 2 Review and Reaction Thread Iron Fist Season 2 Review and Reaction Thread

Last season, I did an episode by episode review, but since this season was being better received, I decided to just binge-watch it all and review the entire thing at once. And boy am I glad I did.

Go Pick Up Immortal Hulk #5 and Thank Me Later Go Pick Up Immortal Hulk #5 and Thank Me Later

I don’t have time to get into it right now, but trust me. I’ve been curious about where Immortal Hulk was going since it debuted, and I love puny Banner and Hulk enough to go along in good faith. Chapter Five did not disappoint.

Marvel's Marie Severin and Gary Friedrich die Marvel's Marie Severin and Gary Friedrich die

Marvel’s Marie Severin died earlier this week and news is breaking that Gary Friedrich has also passed away.

So What's Going On With the X-Men? So What's Going On With the X-Men?

Marvel recently announced that it was bringing back Uncanny X-Men, starting it off with a ten-part weekly story called “DISASSEMBLED.” But what brought us to here and what have the X-Men been doing up until now?

Iron Fist Season Two Ad Spot Pretty Much Apologizes to Everyone for Season One Iron Fist Season Two Ad Spot Pretty Much Apologizes to Everyone for Season One

How can you promote the second season of the worst Marvel Netflix show after the first season fails so much and falls so short in so many ways? You could shoot and release a video that clearly was shot to address the first season’s shortcomings while also promising that important changes were made so that Iron Fist …

Why Disney Needs to Rehire James Gunn Why Disney Needs to Rehire James Gunn

Right now, there is a petition to rehire James Gunn that has gotten nearly 130,000 signatures. It probably won’t do anything to help, but it definitely should.

The actress playing Squirrel Girl in the MCU is cosplaying Squirrel Girl at SDCC

Milana Vayntrub, the actress playing Squirrel Girl in New Warriors and Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors seems to be such a delight of a person. As she is running around cosplaying Squirrel Girl at SDCC!

The DC Extended Universe is Dead...Long Live the Worlds of DC? The DC Extended Universe is Dead...Long Live the Worlds of DC?

Hey, remember how the whole “DC Extended Universe” thing was never actually official and never used by Warner Brothers? Well, it turns out that they were just waiting to think up a better name and now they have: “the Worlds of DC.”

Some Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. News for You Some Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. News for You

San Diego Comic-Con is kind of like Christmas for geeks and nerds, giving us tidbits and trailers and making us giddily excited for a little bit (except for the moments when we are stuck with complete depression). But even if you aren’t at SDCC, it’s still a time to reveal stuff, like Marvel did today with some Agents…

Some More Comic Related News from SDCC Some More Comic Related News from SDCC

Since io9 is only covering the super important events at SDCC and not many comic-related stuff, I’ve decided to consolidate all of that over here. There have been a lot of interesting announcements for both Marvel and DC over the past two days, so here goes:

The new digital-first Jessica Jones is a treat for fans of both the character and good mysteries The new digital-first Jessica Jones is a treat for fans of both the character and good mysteries

So back in November, I recommended that Kelly Thompson take over writing Jessica Jones when Bendis left. I not only turned out to be right, but Bendis himself asked that Thompson take over the book. Which I’m glad he did, because her first two issues (released on Wednesday as an oversized 40-page digital-first issue)…

"Who Loves You?": Thoughts on Ant-Man and the Wasp "Who Loves You?": Thoughts on Ant-Man and the Wasp

You know how most of the time sequels aren’t quite as good as the first film? Well, that’s not true about Ant-Man and the Wasp — it not only improves on the good things that were in the first film, but includes even more good stuff, stuff we haven’t seen in the MCU before. Let’s get cracking.

Some Other Superhero Weddings That Went Off With or Without Complications Some Other Superhero Weddings That Went Off With or Without Complications

Superhero comics, as we know, are just big soap operas. And there is nothing that soap operas love more than a wedding. In fact, we’ve had two weddings (from both Marvel and DC) in recent weeks that have, well, had their complications: Marvel’s wedding between Kitty Pryde and Piotr Rasputin and DC’s wedding between…

Why I Love the Fantastic Four Why I Love the Fantastic Four

Ever since it became apparent that the Fox-Disney deal was actually, really going to go through and that we might get an actual MCU version of the Fantastic Four, I’ve been excited, anxious, and trepidatious. The Fantastic Four are one of my absolute favorite comic book characters and I’ve been thinking about why I…

Hat Trick Critiques: Cloak & Dagger Hat Trick Critiques: Cloak & Dagger

Cloak & Dagger is the latest Marvel show to be released on “regular TV” (as opposed to online). It’s being marketed for the “young adult” demographic[1]—though I’d argue it’s skewing more towards the “new adult” demographic[1]. I’m at the half-century mark, and I’m going to critique the show

Other Spider-Man Adjacent Movies Sony Can Make Other Spider-Man Adjacent Movies Sony Can Make

Today it was announced that Jared Leto was probably going to portray Morbius in a Morbius, the Living Vampire movie by Sony. Add to this the fact that Sony is also probably making a Silk movie and it’s understood that Sony probably wants to milk the Spider-Verse for all of the Spider-Man adjacent characters it can.…

Hat Trick Critiques: Luke Cage s02 Hat Trick Critiques: Luke Cage s02

Originally, I had intended for Cloak & Dagger to be the first Hat Trick Critique I did. However, I forgot that Season 2 of Luke Cage came out this week. Given my reactions to many other second seasons of shows I liked, I decided that this might be a better ice-breaker.

The Unstoppable Wasp is Coming Back! The Unstoppable Wasp is Coming Back!

One of the best Marvel comics of 2017 was The Unstoppable Wasp by writer Jeremy Whitley and artist Elsa Charrieter (and later Veronica Fish and Ro Stein). It was fun and energetic, telling the story of Nadia, Hank Pym’s daughter from his first wife (the wife who had been kidnapped by Russian spies, so she was…

Hypothetical TV: Darkhawk, Foolkiller, and Omega the Unknown Hypothetical TV: Darkhawk, Foolkiller, and Omega the Unknown

So with today’s premiere of Cloak & Dagger, I’ve been thinking more and more about Marvel television shows and what direction they should go in. Clearly, Netflix has their Defenders shows and Hulu has Runaways and ABC has the sixth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But Marvel TV can do a lot more...and can do different…
