!? The thing just swallowed my post. :O
Agh. I can't write that whole thing again. Short version: Slott has said we'll see brand new corners of the Marvel universe - places not even the Surfer has seen. I wouldn't worry about it not being cosmic enough. It will, however, be fun and adventurous and quirky, so if you guys wanted a grittier take it's probably a pass.
Now please don't eat this post....
Edit: It didn't! Woo.
I can barely breathe, I'm so excited for these new titles. This is probably the most excited I've been since I got back into comics a year-and-some-change ago. Silver Surfer is gonna be *awesome* and will hopefully slot nicely into the hole in my heart left behind by FF, and the pure class coming off of Noto's Black Widow has me trembling. Super excited for the new Punisher book, which I hope can grab some pages from Rucka's rendition of the character and then evolve that - and I'll follow Fraction to the ends of the earth, so when it involves Inhumans and Madureira I'm so on-board I'm basically part of the ship decor.
I'm physically hopping around with happiness that this book "survives" the departure of Matt Fraction. I basically held my breath between the last issue and this one, prepared to scrutinise it for any drop in whimsy and/or delightful dialogue. I haven't read it yet, but this glowing review has me breathing again. :D
He looks older "in action". He's actually one of the actors on Glee that frequently reminds you they're near-30 year olds playing 17 year olds.
Man I love that round bowl design for Mysterio. In fact, I've always sorta loved Mysterio. In a perfect world, Spidey 3 would be Venom-less and a Raimi Spidey 4 would be Mysterio. God dammit, why can't *real life* have alternate worlds you could move to just to see the movies you want. :>
The fact that Wolverine is never able to go full on violence is something I feel harms the character in a sense. I know we can't have gore and the like in a PG-13 movie, but I still feel that it makes Wolverine appear less threatening when he stabs a person only for the to simply fall down, as if they weren't just slashed by three unbreakable claws of steel.
I'm glad to know this continues on from X-Men: The Last Stand as I feel they better explained Wolverine's past (in X2) without fully explaining it, giving you an idea of what lead to the transformation into the man he is today, but still keeping that mystery that surrounded the character for so many years.
Hopefully, this will simply be seen as a continuation of the original X-Men trilogy and not simply a Wolverine movie, giving it the idea that it's part of a bigger world and plays a role in building Fox's X-Universe they're trying to build. And despite the negative points, I still feel that if it's better than the monstrosity of X-Men Origins, I will be happy.
You'll be extra pleased to know that there's apparently gonna be an unrated version when it comes out on Blu Ray.
