Fox Studios has picked up Mark Millar and Leinil Francis Yu’s Superior comic book for the big screen.
Marvel Knights is releasing a motion comic movie based on the Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk graphic novel series by Damon Lindelof and Leinil Francis Yu.
Below you can check out the box art which is based on the comic book as well.
Dr. Bruce Banner (a.k.a. the Hulk) has been presumed dead since his execution, following his murderous rampage through Manhattan as the Hulk. But when reports start cropping up of an unidentified creature appearing around the globe, Nick Fury begins to get worried. Not because Banner can turn from man to unstoppable monster in seconds, but because Banner’s existence is the one secret that can bring down Fury. So Fury turns to the only man he can trust: Wolverine. And he’s only too glad to take care of Banner–by any means necessary.

A retrospective interview with legendary artist Leinil Francis Yu and Marvel Knights Animation’s Supervising Producer Kalia Cheng gives fans an exclusive look into the making of “Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk.”
[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6138:]]I seem to recall that when the Marvel NOW! titles were announced, EIC Axel Alonso was taking digs at DC Comics for their creative changes, stating something to the effect that the Marvel Now! creators were on for the long haul.
Well, with his most recent column over at CBR, Axel Alonso is asked about the future of Leinil Francis Yu on the Indestructible Hulk.
Alonso doesn’t specifically state Yu is off Hulk, just that “Leinil will be back…on a top-secret project.”
The Indestructible Hulk #1 debuted at around 115,000, with its February #4 issue down to 56,000.
Interestingly enough, when Alonso announced a new artist coming on board Guardians of the Galaxy for an “arc,” Alonso didn’t state what issue McNiven was getting replaced at, but we’re assuming #4 as the same artist is doing the cover. It wasn’t stated if McNiven was coming back.
In related news, a fan asked about the original Guardians of the Galaxy returning and the fact that DnA included them in their 2008 run, which brought him/her back to comics after a 10+ year hiatus.
Seems at this time there are no plans for that.
“I don’t know that we can help you with the ‘want more now’ part, UGF, but we’re all fans of that that classic team,” Alonso responded. “At the moment, we’re focused on the modern-day team, but who knows what could happen in the future?”
Interesting response as Alonso told me personally at the 2011 NYCC that they were fans of Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy — and we know how that turned out.
In addition to the Marvel Heroes MMO that is coming out soon, Marvel is also launching a new mobile video game.
Judging from the following trailer, it is set after the events of The Avengers movie and sees Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D recruiting the Hulk to take on some big baddies.
However, the “World Council” is all up in a tizzy with the use of the Hulk, with Nick Fury telling them they have a backup plan just in case Hulk wants to smash too much.
It’s the Iron Man Hulkbuster armor!
Interestingly enough, the new upcoming Marvel Now! Marvel Comics comic book, Indestructible Hulk, by Mark Waid and Leinil Francis Yu, sees the big Green Goliath team up with S.H.I.E.L.D. as well.
The game looks to be in development with a title and release date to be announced soon.
As previously expected from the Marvel NOW! teaser, we now have confirmation that Mark Waid and Leinil Francis Yu are on the new Indestructible Hulk. Check out the cover to the first issue: [[wysiwyg_imageupload:2511:]]
Marvel released another Marvel NOW! teaser this time featuring “Indestructible.” We’ve heard rumors of this team before and now it looks to be confirmed with Mark Waid and Leinil Francis Yu on the new Marvel NOW! Incredible Hulk. (via CBR) [[wysiwyg_imageupload:2451:]]
Mark Millar not only assaults us this week with the wrap up of Kick-Ass 2, he literally punches us in the face with his brand new villain-centric book â€” Supercrooks!
Supercrooks, is the tale of Johnny Bolt and his crew of unlucky criminals who are sick and tired of being taken down by heroes. While other cadres of villains seem to have set themselves up quite nicely over the years, forming a hierarchy, Johnny is constantly getting the shake down. When their mentor crosses the wrong people, Johnny and his ex-fiancee decide there is only one thing they can do to save him, hit the score of their lives where there are no super heroes to mess up their plans â€” in Spain!
Mark Millar is constantly bringing something fresh to the genre while nodding to aspects that came before. Johnny and his crew are reminiscent of the Flash’s Rogues Gallery, and Gladiator is Captain America if he actually had balls! Not that these characters can be confined into such tight comparisons, they are quite unique unto themselves! I love how frail and pathetic Johnny and his cohorts seem to be compared to the other characters in the book. It makes them think harder, trying to out guile the hierarchy that seems to run all aspects of their world. It gives them an underdog feel that makes you root for them, and yet, you can’t help but want to see them fail miserably just so their faces get smashed yet again!
That’s exactly what you can expect from a Millar book, a cunning story with a razors edge that will draw you in and then kick you in the balls! It is pure cerebral viciousness at its finest! You won’t find another book on the racks today that will make you think, cringe, applaud and scream “Holy $#!%!” quite like Supercrooks will! Well, except for Kick-Ass that is!
Check out an announcement trailer for Mark Millar’s prequel to Supercrooks that can be found in the March issue of CLiNT! Magazine.
Millar and Leinil Francis Yu are the creators behind Supercrooks, which sees a bunch of villains leave for Spain to perform one last big heist.
After all, why stay where the actual heroes are there to stop them?!
