Re: It's happening!

They're at the numbers-crunching stage . When the accountants get involved, it's all but official. :) If this happens, the FF/Human Torch stuff would all be under one roof. We're one step closer to *me* getting a live action Invaders movie! (no one except me is talking about (or probably even hopin...

Re: It's happening!

We're getting closer, folks. It may even be announced next week!

Apparently Comcast/Universal has all but dropped out of the negotiations, and I haven't heard/seen anything recently about Sony/MGM. It really does sound like it might happen.

Re: It's happening!

The word on the street is that Fox wants to finalize a deal by the end of the year (the timeline isn't mentioned in the link, but the Wall Street Journal (where it is mentioned) is a paid-subscription site so I won't link to that). Meaning, sometime in the next four weeks. Also, apparently, the hop...

Re: the 'NAM!

Re: Michael If I remember right, there was a letters page editorial (or maybe it was in Marvel Age?) around the time Punisher appeared in the 'Nam that explained it was to boost sales, but they wanted it to be respectful and important to the character without being a cheap stunt. Or something like t...

Re: the 'NAM!

Huh. And yet, Punisher's the 'Nam appearances are noted in all relevant chronologies in that Index, AND in the "Before Punisher #1" piece at the start of the book. How can the 'Nam both "count" and "not count"? Heck, one of those the 'Nam comics explains/straightens out one of the big inconsistencie...

Re: It's happening!

Fingers crossed. :o

Too bad they couldn't get everything ironed out before Hugh Jackman retired as Wolverine. If it does happen, though, I hope they continue to make (R rated) Deadpool movies. :)

Re: INFINITY to ORIGINAL SIN

Yeah, Secret Avengers v2 had some wonky timeframe things going on. Taking #10-11 out of sequence isn't really an option. Unless there's a note in the issue (any given comic, not just SECA2) that says otherwise, comics happen in numerical order. I mean, they're numbered for a reason, right? In super ...

Re: Non-Marvel characters in the Prime Marvel Universe

No idea, but just a week or two ago I finally read Howard Chaykin's 1986 Shadow mini from DC. The Shadow must be in the air!

Re: X-Men: Time Gliders mini-series

My first guess would be, no one's read it and analyzed it for the MCP yet.

Re: Spidey Super Stories

Just glancing that over, it really does sound like those are new stories. Doctor Doom gassing everyone in New York on New Year's Eve so he can kidnap Ronald Reagan? Mad Thinker brainwashing Mr. Fantastic so he can compete in track and field events against Spider-Man? Professor X lecturing the reader...
