Some pics of the new Spiderman suit.

July 14, 2011

Greetings Marvel Maniacs,

I just saw Transformers 3 last night and the best part for me was the 3D trailer for Captain America. So, how many more sleeps? Other than that,I found some interesting pictures of the new Spiderman suit and the new Peter Parker on! I think the new suit looks good, and I like the old school Spidey Web-Shooters they’re using for the movie. I have faith that the Spidey stories will be redeemed after the mess that was left of Sam Raimi’s Spiderman. Remember emo Peter with the black suit? and the dance scene? Urgg, so bad! Anyways, I’m excited to see how movie turns out, however, my expectations are low.

Random Marvel Thoughts 2011…. so far.

January 19, 2011

Hello fellow comic book and Marvel lovers,

I hope 2011 has been good too you.. so far that is. I’ve haven’t posted anything on Mostly Marvel in a while, so I figured it was time.

1. Andrew Garfield as Spiderman. Hmmm, interesting choice to play everyone’s favorite wall-crawler. At first I thought this was a lame decision, but after viewing the latest picture of him in the suit, I think he may be better than Tobey Maguire. I haven’t seen The Social Network yet; however, his performance, from what I’ve heard, was great. I’ll hold any further comments until I see some more pics or videos of the yet to be named new Spidey flick. Here’s a pic if you haven’t seen it yet.

2. Thor, Captain America, and X-Men First Class.  I’m really looking forward to seeing all these movies this coming summer. Fox released a picture today of the new X-Men movie. Hard to tell from the picture, but I like that they are finally giving the mutants some costumes, instead of black Matrix leather. Click the link below to view the pic.

  3. The Marvel world of comics. I must admit I’ve limited the amount of comics I’m reading and buying in the last few months. That’s probably why I haven’t posted as much if anything. So right now I’m reading: Amazing Spidey (which has been great), Secret Warriors ( I just want this book to end), Shield (an interesting story and genre than the regular Marvel superhero stuff), Nemesis ( just ended: I loved the art, violence, and freshness of this book), Wolverine ( Goes to hell, great stuff! Logan atones for all his previous sins), and Superior (another Miller gem, and great art by Yu).

After the Siege storyline and crossovers, I began to get tired of some titles, plus it’s really expensive to read so many titles in a month. I stopped reading Thor, Hulk, Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Deadpool, and some others. It’s not like they weren’t great books, well some of them at least, but I think I was tired of all the tie-ins, and stories. 

So, that’s my random Marvel thoughts for the month of January 2011. I hope you enjoyed this post, and keep on reading. Until they make a Dazzler movie.. make mine Marvel!

Issue of the Month- Amazing Spiderman # 238

November 30, 2010

With the return of Hobgoblin in this week’s issue of Amazing Spiderman, the debut of the Hobgoblin is bound to generate some new interest. Amazing Spiderman # 238 was released in March 1983, and is a classic spidey book. Drawn by both John Romita Sr and Romita Jr, and scripted by Roger Stern, this book is only going to increase in value. Currently, you can find this book in the range of $50-100 depending on the condition and grade of the book, however, with Hobby making his return to the pages of the Amazing Spiderman this month you can expect an increase in value in the coming months. Get it now and enjoy!

A Weekly Review and Rant

July 27, 2010

Okay, some new developments have come down the Marvel pipeline in the past few days, so I felt it was time for a new entry! Here’s my thoughts on all things Marvel for the week.

1. The Avengers cast. So, they fired Ed Norton and officially hired Mark Ruffalo to play Bruce Banner/Hulk for The Avengers flick. I’m thinking Norton got screwed out of a potential blockbuster, as well as some sweet bragging rights about playing The Hulk for The Avengers movie. Oh well, I’m sure Ruffalo will do a great job, but I don’t really care about who they get at this point.In addition, with Marvel Studios trying to build a universe it doesn’t seem right to keep replacing The Hulk with various actors. Dear Marvel Studios, pick your actors and stay with them! Anyways, check out this picture courtesy of, click the link below to view, It’s going to be epic!

2. ONE MOMENT IN TIME. It’s finally here! Hot off the heels of the GRIM HUNT storyline, Spidey swings into ONE MOMENT IN TIME. The first issue, released last week, was great. I loved the way the writers wove in previous storylines into the recent Spidey saga of BRAND NEW DAY. If you’re not reading Spidey right now, then you shouldn’t be reading comics at all. Okay, I know I sound a little bias, but these stories have been great. I can understand some long-time fanboys getting upset about the continuity changes that have come Spidey’s way since BRAND NEW DAY, but seriously get over it!  These changes have kept AMAZING SPIDERMAN fresh after years of dull and predictable stories. If I stopped reading Marvel Comics all together, this would be the only book I would still read, NUFF SAID!

 That about wraps up this rant. So, until they remake the Electra movie… Make Mine Marvel!

It’s Been Too Long! Random Marvel Thoughts of the Month!

July 12, 2010

Dear Mostly Marvel Readers,

I would like to start this post ( holy s$&* a new post!) by saying I suck! I haven’t been around in a while to write anything new, or share my enlightened thoughts about what’s going on in Marvel Comics for the past month. While I’m here now, so let’s enjoy our time together, shall we?

1. A New Spidey is cast- Meh, who cares? Everyone knows this will be Marvel’s version of the Twilight angst. I’m not going to give up completely, but when the director states that this reboot is going to focus more on the characters and less on the effects I begin to wonder if it’s Spideylight 90210. Urggggggg please don’t let that happen Sony!

2. Grim Hunt – This has been epic! I’ve loved almost every story since Brand New Day was introduced to Amazing Spiderman two years ago, and this story has got to be one of the best so far. The return of Kraven, and others has got me reading the book more than once before I hermetically seal each issue. On a side note, One Moment In Time storyline right after this means Spidey has some great stories through the summer!

3. The Thanos Imperative-Great stuff, can’t wait for issue #2.

4. The Avengers Relaunch-Love it, Romita Jr has never drawn better. It’s good to see Kang back, and the new team assembled.

5.The Red Hulk is revealed- Okay, so it was General Ross, that kinda makes sense. However, Red She-Hulk was Betty, WTF!

6. Spidey/Wolverine Team-Up- Great stuff, loved the first issue. Second Issue please.

7. Nemesis Issue 2- Not sure what to think about the second issue of Nemesis. This book has so much promise, however, I didn’t really care all that much about the second issue. Oh well, it still looks great, and oozes with graphic violence. Who doesn’t like that?

8. No Ed Norton back as Banner- Marvel announced recently that Norton would not be returning for the role of Bruce Banner in the new Avengers flick. I must say, bad move Marvel Studios. Norton brings some street cred to the cast of The Avengers, and was much better than the first Banner, Eric Bana. I thought they were trying to keep the continuity of the Marvel Universe in film? I guess if money involved that can change visions. Still, pretty lame Marvel Studios, pretty lame.

Well, I think that about wraps up this rant on Mostly Marvel. So, until they bring back David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury, make mine Marvel!

One Moment In Time- Finally some answers!

May 9, 2010


Finally, it looks like we’re going to get some answers in the upcoming Spiderman storyline, ONE MOMENT IN TIME. When BRAND NEW DAY launched a zillion issues ago, there has been some nagging questions surrounding Spidey in his book. First off, I would like to say that I for one have loved the new spin on our Friendly Neighborhood Spiderman. The stories, writing, and art have been for the most part great. At the time, Amazing Spiderman was becoming dull and predictable, so it wasn’t hard to convince me that it was time for a BRAND NEW DAY. Okay, so flash forward to the upcoming ONE MOMENT IN TIME storyline scheduled for July 2010. Marvel promises some answers to major questions left hanging at the start of BRAND NEW DAY.  Such as, ” What really happened at the wedding of Peter Parker and MJ? ” What does MJ know about Spidey today?” ” How did ONE MORE DAY affect the entire Marvel Universe?” Marvel is promising some major developments for Spidey, and this story will “set up the course of Spiderman’s life for years to come”.  With some storylines left hanging for two years now, ONE MOMENT IN TIME is going to be epic.I’m looking forward to getting some answers.. finally!
