Legendary comic book creator and artist passes at the age of 90. Steve Ditko, famed artist and comic book creator, has died at the age of 90. A celebrated artist and a pillar of the groundbreaking Marvel Age of Comics of the early 1960's, Ditko was credited with numerous creations and co-creations, most famously Spider-Man . His unique style is credited with pushing the boundaries of comic book art and was perfectly in tune with the psychedelic 60's.  The comic book industry was quick to pay tribute to Ditko. "Steve Ditko was true to his own ideals. He saw things his own way, and he gave us ways of seeing that were unique. Often copied. Never equalled. I know I'm a different person because he was in the world." Neil Gaiman "Spider-Man. Dr. Strange. The Question. The Creeper. Shade the Changing Man. Hawk & Dove. He worked with @Marvel AND...

Ranking All 18 MCU Movies. Which is best?

Top18MCUCover
Top18MCU18
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been Hollywood's most successful movie studio since the release of The Avengers and has revolutionised modern filmmaking. After the recent release of Marvel's Black Panther and with the anticipated release of Avengers Infinity War, I have decided to make a king sized special on the MCU movies, ranking all the movies from 18 right through to number 1!   18. "The Incredible Hulk" (2008)   The main reason The Incredible Hulk is in the dreaded 18 th position on my list is because we can all agree that it was forgettable. It may have a been a decent movie at the time but after the casting change no-one remembers Edward Norton as The Hulk. Will we, however see a Mark Ruffalo Hulk movie? That most definitely won't be forgettable! 17. "Iron Man 2" (2010)   Iron Man 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed...

Which actor played the best Spider-Man?

5942647-4965911914-spide
Iron Man and Holland
One thing is for sure: every Spider-Man movie is guaranteed to be filled with action and excitement. Even so, the acting of the masked hero varies. We now have 3 different actors that have donned the Spidey suit on the big screen. They have all put in great effort, but who is the best? Let's weigh the options.   Tom Holland is a new and fresh face for Peter Parker and Spider-Man. He really connects with the younger audience members. He has the funny factor of Spider-Man, but does he pull off the nerd aspect of Peter Parker? He seems like too much of a cool kid. Let's be honest...if he were in our high school classes, he would be the most popular guy in school. He also seems like a flat-out crony of Iron Man. He'll sometimes be dealing with situations on his own, but he'll usually have Iron...

Raimi's Spider-Man - A Look Back After "Homecoming"

Raimi's Spider-Man - A Look Back After "Homecoming"
c6104b3946b8663eb7e13ad22507c945c8b05553
With the introduction of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the recent box office hit  Homecoming , Geek Genie takes a wistful look back at Sam Raimi's original trilogy of movies in the naughties...starting with  Spider-Man . When a young teenager by the name of Tom Holland appeared in Captain America: Civil War , it was the first time a teenager was depicting a teenage Spider-Man. Toby Maguire, Andrew Garfield and long before him Nicolas Hammond, were all mid to late twenties when they were web spinning so most of fandom were happy that Spider-Man was truly returning to his roots with a physical depiction of Spider-Man more true to the original character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. So how does the Maguire Spider-Man now fit into the cinematic mythos? In terms of continuity, it doesn't exist as Marvel only recently reached an agreement with Sony to...
