If you’re familiar with the huge number of different parallel universes in the Marvel Comics multiverse, then you might have some cause for celebration in regards to the PS4 Spider Man universe. That universe will be included in the Marvel comic canon, making it part of the many Spider-Man universes. Much like many other Marvel superheroes, there are multiple Spider-Man in multiple different universes across a whole multiverse. This was even the focus of a Spider-Man comic series, which included a wide variety of Spider-Men from other universes, including a cowboy Spider-Man (who has a horse who can also sling web and also wears a mask), a Spider-Man Speed Buggy, Spider-Ham (a spider who was bitten by a radioactive pig (yes you read that right)), and even the memetic 1960’s cartoon version of Spider-Man. It’s likely that the PS4 Spider Man universe won’t have anything too outlandish in it, but it being made a part of the Marvel comic book canon means that … [Read more...] about The PS4 Spider Man Universe Will Be Included In Marvel Comic Book Canon

In the first Avengers movie, Thor smash-lands on top of a plane, golden locks billowing majestically in the wind after a flash of electricity (“Scared of a little lightning?” riffs Captain America. “I’m not overly fond of what follows,” replies Loki), and makes the crowd go wild. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again pulls off the same trick. The minute Cher’s Ruby Sheridan steps off her private helicopter, the audience gasps. When she makes her full appearance in a white pantsuit, silver-framed sunglasses and platinum blonde wig, completely uninvited (“That’s the best kind of party,” she teases), it screams. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again swaps fight sequences for musical choreography, but the deliverables are the same: a message teamwork and idealism, the plot-riffing gags, the explosions (in the case of Mamma Mia 2, fireworks), and plenty of ridiculous costumes. There’s little separating the MCU, a billion-dollar comic-book … [Read more...] about Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again deserves a never-ending, comic-book-like franchise
A wise uncle once said, “With great power comes great responsibility.” A wise Polygon employee once said, “With great time on your hands, comes great responsibility to pore over Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every available streaming movie platform to remind people what’s worth their time.” Fair enough.

One of the few PS4 exclusives featured at E3 2018 with a 2018 release date includes Insomniac Games' Spider-Man. The highly-anticipated upcoming game stars one of Marvel's most iconic characters ever. It would have only existed in video game form. However, thanks to comic book logic and corporate synergy, Insomniac Games' take on the wall-crawler will officially join Marvel comic book canon soon. Marvel Comics has been teasing a new mysterious Spider-Man since the comic book publisher revealed a new comic book crossover storyline dubbed Spidergeddon. It will be a spiritual sequel to another Spider-Man crossover featuring Spider-Men from many different universes and worlds. As unveiled exclusively by Polygon, the new mysterious silhouetted Spider-Man has been revealed to be the Spider-Man from Insomniac Games' upcoming title.

This first trailer for Netflix’s The Magic Order is deceptive. Despite the look of it, which mixes animation and sound effects along with images, The Magic Order is not something you’ll find on Netflix’s app. It’s a comic written by Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Wolverine: Old Man Logan, Ultimate X-Men) and drawn by Olivier Coipel (X-Men, Avengers, Thor). It’ll be out on the shelves of your local shop, or available on a comics reading app. So how did Netflix get into the business of making comics? Well, it goes back to August 2017, when the streaming giant acquired Millar’s comics publishing company, Millarworld. Through Millarworld, Millar has published Kick-Ass, Wanted and Kingsman, all original comics series distributed by other larger publishers and adapted for feature films. In February 2018, Netflix and Millarworld announced that The Magic Order would be the companies’ first collaboration. “Magic meets the mob,” is how … [Read more...] about Watch a magical trailer for Netflix’s very first … comic book?
