Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk Motion Comic Movie Available September 10th

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.

Marvel Knights: Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk can be ordered through Amazon at a discounted price of $10.96.

Synopsis
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.

Special Bonus Content:
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.”

Leinil Francis Yu Off Hulk; No Plans For Original Guardians of the Galaxy

[[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.

Hulk and Iron Man Hulkbuster Armor Featured in Post Avengers Movie Video Game

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:2880:]]

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.

Review: Super Crooks #1

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 — 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 — 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!

Mark Millar: “Is the Big Two about to become the Big Three?”

supercrooks“Is the Big Two about to become the Big Three?”
 
That’s the question Mark Millar poses during his Millarworld Editorial in the pages of Kick-Ass 2 #6. And with the lineup he’s bringing to Millarworld in 2012 — he damn well has a shot!
 
According to Mr. Millar, 2012 will see some HUGE books coming out, but we’ll have to wait a little bit to get them in our hands. Patience is a virtue after all, and it will be well worth it!
 
March is when we will see not only one new series come out of the Millarworld stable — but two! First will be Supercrooks, with art by fan favorite Leinil Francis Yu. Shipping almost simultaneously will be The Secret Service, drawn by comic legend — Dave Gibbons! This book was also co-conceived by the Kick-Ass film director, Matthew Vaughn! Then in April, we will finally see the long awaited Hit-Girl series, by Kick-Ass veteran artist John Romita Jr! 
 
Around the end of summer, Millar will launch an as yet to be named book that he is calling, “a vast superhero epic, something as wide in scope as the Lord of the Rings, for a superhero audience!” Nothing can make that sound more exciting, unless you factor in that superstar artist Frank Quitely will be doing the art chores! 
 
hit-girl 2And finally in November, fans will get to see one of the most insane, brutal and disturbingly cunning books back on the shelves, as Steve McNiven draws the coolest killers around in the pages of — Nemesis 2!
 
All these artistic legends led by the crazy intelligence of one Mark Millar? Is there any doubt that the Big Two might actually have to look over their shoulder in 2012? And remember boys, the toys in the Millarworld aren’t as precious as yours! Anything goes, and it usually does, which is exactly what fans want! And I will be the first in line to get the most exciting and original books on the shelves today — Millarworld books!
 
If that wasn’t enough for you, you can travel across the pond and go to Millar’s own Kapow Comic Convention! Tickets are on sale now for this London based event that takes place on May 19th and 20th. Be sure to visit www.kapowcomicconvention.com for all the insane details!
