Mouse Guard graphic novels set to be adapted to a live action film.


It appears that the Eisner-award winning graphic novel series Mouse Guard will be adapted into a live action film and as a reader of the comic this is exciting news. Mouse Guard comes from writer and illustrator David Petersen The film will be produced by Matt Reeves (director of Cloverfield and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and will be written by Gary Whitta (a writer from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).

Comic synopsis:
"In the world of Mouse Guard, mice struggle to live safely and prosper amongst harsh conditions and a host of predators. Thus the Mouse Guard was formed: more than just soldiers, they are guides for common mice looking to journey without confrontation from one village to another. They see to their duty with fearless dedication so that they may not simply exist, but truly live."
I am very excited about this. The film is set to use the same motion capture technology from Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the new The Jungle Book films to bring the characters to life. At the moment there is no set release date but this is one medieval era film that I will not miss.

Captain America: Civil War concept art shows Ant-Man/Giant Man fighting Captain America.


Artist Andy Park has released an extremely cool piece of concept art for Captain America: Civil War that shows that Ant-Man was at one point in the film's production on Team Iron Man (instead of Team Captain America like in the finished product). The piece shows Giant Man (aka Ant-Man's larger form) fighting Captain America. It would have been interesting to see this played out on the big screen but I have to say that I was very happy with the result that we got.

Marvel Comics announces the new Iron Man will be named "Ironheart".


Marvel Comics recently revealed that Tony Stark would be stepping down as Iron Man and making way for a 15 year old African American MIT student named Riri Williams. She is an admirer of his and has re-purposed one of his suits to be her own in her dorm room.

Today it was announced that Riri's "hero name" will officially be Ironheart. The transition of characters will start in Invincible Iron Man #1. Writer Brian Michael Bendis went into detail about how the new name was created by stating,

"“Iron Woman seemed old fashioned to some,” he says. “Iron Maiden looked like a legal nightmare. And Ironheart, coined by Joe Quesada, after I told him my planned story for Riri, speaks not only to the soul of the character but to the Iron Man franchise as a whole. Tony first put on the armor to save his heart. Riri puts it on for different reasons altogether but still heart-related. When people see her story, you’ll be amazed at how simple and brilliant Joe’s suggestion was.”"

Fan trailer for "Kenobi: A Star Wars Story" will make you hope Disney takes notice.


Now that Disney and Lucasfilm are in full swing with the stand alone Star Wars films, fans are anxiously awaiting a film on Obi-Wan Kenobi. A great time to explore in Kenobi's life would be the gap between Episodes III and IV where he was in exile on Tatooine and secretly watching over Luke Skywalker.

Using footage of actor Ewan McGregor from his film The Last Days in the Dessert as well as various Star Wars footage, one dedicated fan, Rich Williamson, has created a brilliant trailer for a film based on Ob-Wan. Titled "Kenobi: A Star Wars Story", this is definitely a fun trailer and a film that I would love to see.
