Did I tell you guys that after the apocalypse happened, magic returned to Earth? Yeah, it's pretty wild! One day I was stopping in a town on my mail route and then this guy told me to pick a card and put it back in the deck without him seeing. And he still knew what it was! It was crazy!

Yesterday, Marvel announced a partnership with Netflix that will allow them to conquer television the same way they've conquered movies and comics.

The Argument For and Against Kicking Werewolves in the Testicles

So it’s almost Halloween for you guys? Cool. I kind of remember Halloween. Here in post-apocalyptic America, you know what we call the day when people dress up in weird costumes and then track down happy, innocent families and demand some kind of “treat” by threatening them?

How long before Marvel makes its own Daredevil movie?

We've known since last fall that Marvel was going to be getting the movie rights to Daredevil back — last October, there were widespread reports that Marvel was willing to extend Fox's option for a Daredevil film, in exchange for getting to use Galactus in a Marvel movie.

7 Superheroes Who Should Get Their Own Arrow-style TV Shows

It's still a little weird to say out loud, but The CW's Green Arrow show Arrow is good. Like, really good. Like, a perfect match of superheroics, accessibility and non-superheroic drama for mass audiences, and with no need for budget-busting special effects.

Kick-Ass writer Mark Millar will help plan all the X-Men and Fantastic …

Fox hasn't always done the best job making use of its Marvel Comics film properties — they appear to have just lost the rights to Daredevil, and their Fantastic Four films aren't considered classics. So it's probably good news that they've hired Mark MIllar, who's done so much to reshape how Marvel's characters are… » 9/27/12 5:05pm 9/27/12 5:05pm
