Rumor: Drax The Destroyer holding down big role in ‘Avengers 3’
I fucking love the people who Guard the Galaxy movie. And while a lot of what I love about the movie was things I expected, I never anticipated loving Drax as much as I did. So if Marvel wants to stuff him (and frankly *all* the Guardians) into Avengers 3? Yes please.

MARVEL has its MOVIE UNIVERSE planned through f**king 2028.
This is some Jonathan Hickman levels of plotting ahead, right here. Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige (his actual title is Chief Dude of Making Disney Comic Book Billions) recently commented that Marvel has planned seriously ahead for their movie universe. Like, fourteen years ahead. Either Marvel is meticulous as fuck, Feige is just talking shit, or a little of both.

Marvel drops ‘AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON’ concept art, featuring Hulkbuster vs. Hulk throwdown.
Oh yeah! Wait — that Marvel: Assembling The Universes and Shit special was on tonight? On ABC? I didn’t catch it. Forget. Thankfully for my ass, every fucking website is posting the concept art that Marvel revealed during it. There’s some dope stuff within, but I’m pretty sure everyone is just going to be stroking, slapping, or rubbing it to one piece of art in particular. Hulkbuster. Boner. Hulkbuster. Say it again, baby. Hulkboner.
Check out the concept art, yooo.

Korean actress Kim Soo Hyun cast in ‘AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.’

I am not familiar with Kim Soo Hyun, but soon all the fanboys in the world such as myself shall be quite acquainted. The actress has been cast in Avengers 2: Age of James Spade. And more interestingly, Marvel ain’t talking about her role. MUCH INTRIGUE.

New podcast up in your fucking gutsss. With a special fucking guest: Pepsibones Krueger! *Phazer sound, Phazer sound, Phazer sound* Back from his stint in the OMNIVERSE. With The Bones in Tow, the Gang Omega relocated to my compartment of the Space-Ship for this edition, and what occurred is truly the tale of two podcasts. Off the bat we vomit chunks of broken-brain about True Detective, artistic integrity, Her, how much Bateman loves to feel inspired, Ms. Marvel #1 and other bullshit. Then the booze kicks in, and what follows is generally just Pepsibones and myself babbling drunkenly about Avengers Star Wars, and Jeremy Renner’s amazing vascularity. So it’s pretty fucking awesom

It’s Dumpuary for the movies – ya kids know what that is?  Films that otherswise would not be successful get dumped into this month for release in order to ensure some sort of profit.  So, though there can be diamonds found in the rough, most flicks coming out are pure gaaaarbage.  And while I don’t consider this week’s comic book releases to be completely void of merit, some weeks are better than others, ya feel me?  Call it a Weakday, maybe?   So I’m going to do my best to plug some of the more entertaining releases, plus shine a light on some of the cooler trade paperbacks dropping this week.  Hit the jump for all the patronizing pseudo-intellectualism you’ve come to expect from me, plus comics!

A full list of this weeks’s releases can be found HERE but I’m serious this week is pretty stale.

So apparently I caused a commotion on Spaceship OL this morning.  Caff would have you believe I ruined two deck levels, and that a third will need at the very least a scrubdown and new paint job.  Pluto claims I ate his Great American Novel.  The Dude says the munitions locker was ejected into space.  I remember none of this, but I KNOW that I woke up, sobbing, karate chopping two of the ship’s Oxygen Garden Bots, while the crewmembers looked on in horror.

“WHAT – THE – SHIT – MAN?!?!”  Caffeine asked, not politely, if I may say.  The answer came to mind quickly, it was the ONLY thing on my mind.

“The pull list this week.  It’s got hardly anything for me.  I don’t know what to do!”   I received a wall of blank stares, and after a moments hesitation, Caff offered his advice.

“Are you kidding me, bro?  Just look in the archives for some stuff you might have missed.  And get this shit cleaned up.”

That Caff-Pow is a lifesaver.  Hit the jump to see what I found, and for god sakes, if you have any recommendations, please let us know.  I think my sanity depends on it.

All this week’s releases can be found HERE.

Being funny is really difficult. In fact, it’s so difficult that I don’t even try to be funny (and my writing for Omega-Level records this abstention quite nicely). And to prove my dedication to humorlessness even more in this OV piece, I am going to do one of the least funny things a person can do: I will try to discuss some qualities of comedy methodically by submitting my sober thoughts on a comedic modus operandi that’s used today to a overwhelming degree: pop culture referencing. So, please, sit back and wallow in my unfunny criticism on pop culture comedy.

Sherlock Holmes.  Superman.  Optimus Prime.  James Bond.  Jesus of Nazareth.  You just can’t keep a great character dead.  Death and rebirth is a staple of all literature, and this week sees one of the great comic book characters and series find new life.  Step inside and let’s talk about superstar author Neil Gaiman revisiting the work that made him famous, and a few of the other great titles dropping this week.

Also, if I fail to give a shout-out to a book that has you swooning, make mention in the comments below!

It appears that Elizabeth Olsen is going to be in Avengers: Jarvis is Pissed. I suppose when you’re Samuel L. Jackson, you can pretty much just shit on the face of embargoes and secrets and stuff. Right?
