Hey, I’m On Vacation

Hello blast-o-rama readers!

I will be on vacation from July 13th-21st, heading to beautiful Bethany Beach, Delaware.

In turn, your normal updates of this site probably won’t happen. But I know me, and at the very least, I’ll probably be sharing links (and brief thoughts) over on Twitter.

At the least, I will be back on Monday, July 23rd. Be good, nerds.

The Long-Rumored BLACK WIDOW Movie Now Has A Director

Hollywood Reporter:

Marvel Studios’ Black Widow standalone movie has its director.

Cate Shortland, the Australian director perhaps best known for the Nazi drama Lore, has signed on to direct Black Widow, Marvel’s action-adventure project that will star Scarlett Johansson.

I wonder how well this would’ve fared prior to the Ghost in the Shell/Rub ’n Tug backlash on ScarJo?

Either way – please be based on the Mark Waid/Chris Samnee run. K thx bye.

Marvel Unveils Their Exclusive Line of SDCC 2018 Merch


As usual, those attending San Diego Comic-Con next week will want to make sure to pay a visit to the Marvel booth, which will be packed with plenty to see and do. That includes the chance to get ahold of a ton of exclusive Marvel merchandise, such as comic book variants, t-shirts, pins, and more!

I can’t front – were I attending San Diego, between shirts, pins, cool caps, etc. – I’d be dropping a lot of cash at the Marvel booth.

The World of BLADE RUNNER Coming To Comics and Graphic Novels

EW can exclusively reveal that Alcon Media Group and London-based Titan Publishing are partnering in a new co-publishing venture which will initially focus on the Blade Runner universe. Alcon, along with Sony Pictures, produced last year’s Blade Runner 2049, a sequel to director Ridley Scott’s 1982 science fiction film Blade Runner. That latter movie starred Harrison Ford as the titular character, who tracks rogue synthetic humans. Ford returned for the sequel, which costarred Ryan Gosling. Titan is known for publishing movie and TV tie-in books, including an array of Doctor Who titles and novels set in the Marvel and DC universes.

Very cool. Surprised this hasn’t happened sooner!
