Hey there, Evil Geeks! This week on Transmissions From the Evil Lair, Arthur Harkness, Biff Tannen, Big Evil, C-Mart, and Martian Luthor Kang thoroughly dissect Marvel’s non-reboot, reboot of Marvel’s legendary but somewhat muddy continuity.
Hey there Evil Geeks, we’re still several months away from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Marvel is already ramping up to the 2 part mega-crossover event Avengers: Infinity War. Those films are still years away, but if you’ve been paying close attention to the Marvel Cinematic U, you’ve noticed that there’s been someone looming ominously in the background the whole time. Who is this mystery power player, pulling the strings behind the scenes?

A couple days ago Biff Tannen posted an awesome cover of Black Window by superstar artist Phil Noto. I’ve always been a fan of Noto’s and really like long and lean features that he gives to his characters, it kind of reminds me of high-fashion illustrations. Anyway, it got me remembering that Marvel announced at NYCC this year that Noto would be providing a slew of retro-looking variant covers designed by Noto himself for February and this week we’ve been privy to a whole bunch of them. Check these babies out and sound off in the comments with your thoughts!

Hello Marvel Zombies!
All I gotta say is that in the past week MARVEL HAS BEEN KILLING IT! Seriously, this week has been insane with what the company has in store for us for the next five years… now that’s some serious planning! I’ll always be a DC Fanboy at heart, but man! They’ve got all sorts of awesome in store for us and I can hardly contain my excitement…and it includes Ultron, Black Panther, Stephen Strange, the Infinity War and more, so let’s get started!!!
All the craziness started a week ago when Robert Downey Jr revealed that he was in for another Marvel movie, but rather than another solo Iron Man movie he’s starring in Captain America 3, which has officially been titled Captain America: Civil War! Marvel’s Kevin Feige was quoted saying that the film will have a “global superhuman registration with a specific inciting incident.” It’s too early to say what exactly will happen with this movie, but Civil War was huge for Marvel in the comic world because it brought on the death of Captain America and set the stage for Bucky to take over in the role. Who knows what the MCU has in store, but Chris Evans has signed up for 6 movies and this one will make 5 for him (his cameo in Thor didn’t count,) so who knows! Maybe film will reflect art and Evans’ Cap will die only to be brought back again in a future film?
Thats right Evil Geeks, today I am hailing Hydra because thanks to a leak the world got to see the trailer to Avengers Age of Ultron about a week earlier that expected so Marvel released the real one online. All I can say is “Is it May yet?”
Seriously, this movie looks insane based on just the little over 2 minutes that we’ve seen. James Spader’s voice for Ultron is so creepy that it gives you chills. The action is incredible and it just feels like the stakes are much higher this time. Check it out for yourself! Read the rest of this entry
