[RUMOR] Are ‘Gambit’, ‘X-Force’, ‘Multiple Man’ Films Dead?

Strap on that snorkel, we’re diving deep into the rumor waters for this one. The future of the Marvel properties that Fox holds the film rights to is very much up in the air with the looming Disney purchase. The pushback of release dates for both Dark Phoenix (twice) and New Mutants (also twice) was the spark of […]

Improbable Previews: It’s Time for Our Bi-Monthly ResurrXion in Multiple Man #1

Every so often (but seemingly less so since we started this column), comic book publishers accidentally send out unlettered previews, showing us what the characters are doing but not what they’re saying. What a boner! In Improbable Previews, we correct this mistake by putting the words back in, using our best guess at what they are […]

The Revolving Door Of Death Spins Faster In Astonishing X-Men

Death in comics is pretty much a universally impermanent concept. But a death usually lasts a good while before the character comes back, with a couple exceptions. Well, Marvel’s X-Men editor Mark Paniccia has thrown out a teaser that another character who died very recently may be back sooner rather than later. Nothing in the […]
