It wasn’t farfetched to suggest Bryant had the closest thing to superpowers on the court – which is why in 2010 Marvel and ESPN collaborated reimagining the Lakers legend as some of Marvel’s greatest characters. On Sunday, Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, as well as seven other passengers lost their lives in a helicopter crash in Calabasas. The news was both shocking and incredibly…

That could be changing, however, as We Got This Covered reports this week that “Marvel is currently planning an R-rated Blade movie,” with Snipes expected to be involved. Mind you, this one is a rumor at this time, but…

Venom movie reviews: Critics slam Tom Hardy Marvel movie

It looks like Tom Hardy’s antihero epic Venom is a shot of cinematic poison. Movie critics have unleashed a series of scathing reviews for the first entry in Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters, suggesting perhaps the best antidote for its toxic nature is to avoid the film’s pointed fangs altogether. “Venom feels like a second-tier Marvel player prematurely called up to the bigs,” writes EW’s Chris Nashawaty. “It’s noncommittally mediocre and, as a result, forgettable. It just sort of sits there, beating you numb, unsure of whether it wants to…

Armie Hammer calls out Marvel Entertainment exec for Trump financial contributions

Armie Hammer has called out a top Marvel executive for his large financial contributions to President Donald Trump. On Friday, the actor tweeted that former CEO and current chairman of Marvel Entertainment, Isaac Perlmutter, is one of Trump’s largest donors. His finger-pointing comes on the heels of backlash following reports that SoulCycle and Equinox billionaire chairman, Stephen Ross, is hosting a major fundraiser for Trump this weekend in the Hamptons. But other social media users are wondering if Hammer’s allusion to boycott Marvel over its head honcho’s Trump support is more about sour grapes. “Hey, while everyone seems to…
