...Vulture?

That's crazy about the Danish artist. That was pretty borderline what he did though, gotta be a bit more sensitive about that kinda stuff. Not saying he deserved an assassination attempt, by any means, though.

 When did Mark Millar use the c-word?

Why San Diego? 
and why were you laughing throughout the whole video Babs? 
 
The Spider-man news are upseting for me but these problems should be a hint for Sony to give the rights of Spider-man back to Marvel for a re-boot 
 
I am not even getting excited for Deadpool after getting excited for X-men Origins Wolvie...

@sora_thekey: You never watched Anchorman?

I had read about the attack on that artist. These kind of nutcases do the religion of Islam no favors. It just perpetuates the stereotypes people have. When doing political cartoons. You have to be very careful what your message is. Often times it's best to be very specific. If you don't put down a caption. It opens it up for others to do it, and that can end badly. 
 
Does it really count as a ripoff if you are combining characters into one personality? Look at some of the Image comics original series. A lot of those were Marvel characters with a different twist. I'm just not sure what the merits are of DC's case. Does DC has a trademark on the freak red smile?
 
What the Spider-man movie does with Vulture is of little concern to me. I'm more interested as to what they are doing with Felicia Harding. The movies have been pretty downhill since the second, but third movie experience was more ruined by this loud mouth woman who was actually yelling at the screen. There was also how badly the movie altered characters.

I don't think we should have to be more sensitive.  People need to be less sensitive and learn to deal with differences of opinion.  Specially when it's about fake stuff like deities.

Millar said it's not a big deal. He removed the cover image himself as a courtesy to DC.

Or rather a courtesy to himself so he doesn't have to deal with a lawsuit :)

In sign language the sign for Mickey Mouse is the same as when you said: "Do you guys have mouse ears"!

So much for security, how did one crazy man get anywhere near him? I had heard words like fortress thrown around when fears first started rising about him being attacked.

As much as I love John Malkovich... I woud rather see one of Spidey's other foes. I love DC so they can file a lawsuit on anyone who gets is their way & Millar wants to make the Superman film, so way to make that happen. Also Anchorman is fantastic, lol. Here is my favorite quote  "It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries... Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good."      
 
Peace, Stay Stellar!

Awesome recap Babs.  I feel like reporting on  the Millar-DC thing was kind of blown out of proportion, but whatever, it's   piqued my intrest!

Hehe...the C word.  Goofy American ideals, eh?  I don't know, I don't have an issue with the word.  It's just another word.  It's kind of like how America has no problem with blood and gunfire on TV, but Janet's tit falls out at the Super Bowl and everyone goes stir crazy over "moral values".  =  / 
 
Nonetheless, great news recap!  Very enthusiastic.  Been loving the video content coming from Comic Vine lately, especially MAIL!  For some reason, there's just something awesome about seeing what exciting stuff comes in the mail.

Anchorman, classic!

i want Spider-Man four to die. relaunch the franchise for the new marvel movie Universe

Posted by greenenvy

Its good to see you  with humor because its cute and you have a good sense. Thanks for the news. Lizard already come on sony and sam.

Edited by Blackestnight

That whole Islamic cartoons thing was distraction media to avoid covering much larger events going on at the time and mask the real reasons for rioting which spread all over France and had nothing to do with the stupid cartoon. The fact that someone attacked that guy and not say Richard Perle or some neocon who fabricated information and worked with spies against the US and lead to a war where now over half a million people have died, just shows the general ignorance of of people and the ability for the press to make something out of nothing and nothing out of something. Not that attacking anyone is a good. but if Richard Perle fell down his steps tomorrow and landed on Dick Cheney I'd probably laugh.
 
Spiderman movies... it's been rough. They could be so much better. They've broken records though so think of it this way. Making it pg-13 allows more ticket sales it also make it need an easier plot and more boyish adventure. But you know what I remember when I was 13 and there was nothing good out. Maybe a censored version of big trouble in little china. 
 
But these movie producers are in a circle jerk. they're more in love with the graphics and effects than getting a story straight or paying attention to the comic. That emo spiderman was the last straw I physically sank in my chair. I was in Japan to watch the opening day a day before the US. That is how proud Sony is on the work. I was like everyone pissed at how they just tossed venum in there. Two bad guys would have been enough. I know they needed the simbiot to explain why Peter was acting like a Hal Jordan but they could have just taken it to there with the black suit and stopped leaving venum to come another day with his own movie.
 
Oh well. As for who I would like to see? The King Pin. I'd also like to see Spiderman. Not Tobey 5'2 puss.
 
as for copying characters. Yes that's obvious. It's also something both Marvel and DC do to eachother all the time.
Is Aquaman not a Namor ripp off? Is Black Cat not a Catwoman rip off? Lobo a suped up wolverine, Flash quicksilver, plasticman and mr. fantastic. Luther;s suit and Iron mans.  Luther's depowering ray, Ironman's depowering bomb.  Clay face, Sandman, King pin and Black Mask, Blackpanther and Black Panther, Giganta and Giant girl, . even story arcs are copied. so whatever,

Congrats on having the balls to show the cartoon, I don't think any news agencies in the US even showed it in fear of hurting someone's feelings. And wow I can't believe that's what all the fuse was over. Also I heard Thor is taking Spidey 4's release date.

DC aren't sueing Millar its a load of half hearted hash story wrote on miss quotes, here is a quote from the real man as posted when G-Man posted this earlier in the week.  
  

QUICK STATEMENT ON SUPPOSED DC LEGAL MOVE ON NEMESIS AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT...    ...it's nothing and the story has been massively blown out of proportion.

One of my friends at DC legal dropped me an informal email back in December saying that someone in editorial was a bit worried by the Batman and Joker mentions in an interview to promote a creator-owned book. They politely asked if I could avoid using those names as it was creating a bit of grief for them and I agreed, saying that's absolutely fine. Steve and I chatted after, wondering if the cover was a little too much too and we decided to ditch it and do another one. It was entirely our decision and a gesture of goodwill, which the lads at DC appreciated. This has never been anything beyond a couple of friendly, informal emails.

So there you go. But all the online talk is very, very good. I have a hunch this is going to be even bigger than Kick-Ass. Producers are going nuts for it and they haven't even seen anything beyond a few teasers I sent out to friends and nobody's seeing anything else until the massive mainstream promo I have planned on the day the book's released. You think you've seen Millar Whoring? You ain't seen nothing yet, my friends.

MM

Its taken from his own site forums and was put straight up after Bleeding Cool wrote their story.

That's the first time I've seen the controversial cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed.  All I know is that when you're down the pub, you don't talk about football or religion.  Or was that politics & religion.  Anyway, it's always guaranteed to hurt people, whether intentional or not.   
 
Sam Raimi was fighting to have John Malkovich as the Vulture for Spider-Man 3.  The studio insisted on Venom instead, and look at the steaming pile of dog-mess that turned into.  They should just let the man do what he does best, before they ruin another perfectly good comic movie.  In fact, Marvel & Disney should just take it back, and then let Raimi start from scratch :p

I like the bloopers at the end. At least someone didn't type something rude into a teleprompter. Heh.

I'm glad dead pool is getting his own movie.  He was the only character that was worth watching in the wolverine movie.

I don't understand what the issue is with S4. Kraven. Lizard. Done.

 

Really clever, great vid quality. The Vine is moving on up! 
 I didn't want to type this but as a girI just gotta say your hair looks awesome like that Babs.

Deadpool on the way...good to hear!

Posted by Media_Master

Nice Anchorman reverence!
Interesting news to kick off the new year as well.

Posted by Sandbox24

I actually think that's some pretty good casting for the Vulture, but then again it can't be that hard to pick a bald old guy from the cowd.  
 
Not looking forward to the Deadpool movie despite having the writers from Zombieland behind the wheel.  
  
Oh, and how cute did Babs looks when she did the mouse ears?
