General – What if some of our favorite movie characters looked like the early concept art versions? I think we would probably hear/say “WTF?” so many times that we’d go crazy. If the early concept art doesn’t make us crazy in the first place. The good thing about movies is that they go draft after draft till […]
Anime & Comics – If ever there would be a time where aspiring to be a groupie would actually become culturally acceptable, my guess is it’s when it would involve superhero rock stars. They already have the talent and skill to do extraordinary things. It’s pretty logical that these extra ‘extras’ would make damn fine musicians. Super artist Andrés Moncayo designed […]
Cool Stuff & Geekery – The sequel to 2010’s Thor film was, in a lot of people’s eyes, superior to that first film. With Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, returning to their roles, Thor: The Dark World had a crazy ending that saw Thor and Odin teaming up to battle Malekith the Accursed and had our favorite Thunder God […]
Anime & Comics – Newsarama have posted a wonderful dissection of Comichron’s report of comics sales figures for May 2013, and highlighted how comics sales in issues are up a whole 22% on a decade ago, and double the dollar value for the same period, way out-stripping the rate of inflation! Recession? What recession?

Features – Let’s hear it for the movies of 2012! Talented pumpkin carvers are commemorating their favorite movies of the year in jack o’ lantern form. And here they are.
General – Don’t get me wrong. Just like many other viewers, I was mesmerized by Thor. The movie may have had its fair share of criticism, but there is no doubt that the Norse god draws eyes like honey draws bees. Nothing more needs to be said. Until you see this blanket which puts together the brothers […]
Games – Gamers seem to have strong feelings about the upcoming MMO, Marvel Heroes. Let’s see if those feelings are strengthened or changed based on this very first look at the game in action. Plus: a complete list of all playable Marvel heroes that we know about so far.
General – Coolness! Visual effects house Method Studios created the “main-on-end” title sequence that plays immediately after The Avengers ends (but right before the much-discussed prologue). And they’ve posted their work online, in its entirety, so you can truly appreciate their painstaking attention to detail. (Note: this post contains no spoilers.)
Features – This morning I sat down to work and thought to myself, “What do I want to write about today?” Only one thing is on my mind, and it’s drowning out all other thoughts: The Avengers! Just can’t get that brilliant movie out of my head. If you’re craving more Avengers goodness like me, here are […]
Features – Happy Halloween from ForeverGeek! Here are some of our favorite jack-o-lanterns carved and put on display by geeks like you — all from 2011.
General – Marvel dropped the Avengers teaser trailer on us yesterday, and it’s looking awesome. But it goes by way too fast for my taste, so I took fifty high-res screengrabs to really get the full effect. Magnanimous guy that I am, I’m sharing them with you. You’re welcome.
Games – Based on this leaked in-game footage, it looks like a studio owned by THQ was hip-deep in development on a video game tie-in to next summer’s The Avengers movie. But the game has been seemingly canceled since THQ shuttered the studio last month. Sad news made all the sadder once you watch the awesomeness on […]
General – Marvel’s Disney-fied empire just keeps on growing. The latest frontier in their quest for global domination? The kitchen, courtesy of high-end cookware maker Williams-Sonoma.
Features – So we’re going to see The Avengers next year, and as can be expected, we are bound to see all sorts of promos and gimmicks related to the movie. As early as now, Hot Toys has announced something that will delight any toy collector. Even I, who cannot be called one, am rather excited about […]
General – By now, countless people have seen Thor. While the official release is still May the 6th in the US, other parts of the world have already been queuing up over the weekend to see the much awaited movie. Sad to say, I was not one of them. Don’t get me wrong – I very much […]
Features – Next summer is truly the summer of the superhero. DC is launching its Green Lantern franchise with Ryan Reynolds, while Marvel ups the ante with not one but two big-budget hero movies: Captain America and Thor. The first trailer for Thor is here, and it’s pretty darn amazing looking. Chris Hemsworth looks the part, and […]
Games – Mass Effect 3. Elder Scrolls 5. Forza 4. Uncharted 3. Prototype 2. Resistance 3. Batman: Arkham City. SSX. And a certain Guillermo del Toro game… Spike’s Video Game Awards aired over the weekend, and while few gamers or industry insiders consider the awards themselves to be all that prestigious, the industry does always take the […]
Anime & Comics – So this week Tom DeFalco has returned to one of his old creations with Thunderstrike, and for me this is a return to some of the older more innocent style comics. Well, as much as one can perceive from a first issue. It’s nice to see Kevin Masterson again even if he has turned into […]
Anime & Comics – Well, I was half right, we could see the end of the The Thanos Imperative coming, or at least the defeat of Lord Mar-Vell and the Many-Angled Ones. Still, it was not disappointing in the slightest, I don’t want to offer any spoilers, but Thanos is up there in the uber-villain stakes again. My appetite […]
