Here are a few videos from this past week’s Onyxcon III, held in Atlanta, Ga that I shot for Blacksuperhero.com.
Who is this talking? Who are they talking to? Find out this Friday!
Because some things you thought you knew, you really didn’t know…
This is old-hat by now, I’m just posting it for the random Google hits it’ll pick up 5 months from now :). At the end of the day, I think this move represents the ultimate (pun partly intended) embodiment of what the Ultimate universe was originally supposed to be about. It might be 11 years overdue and the publicity stunt feel to it rubs me the wrong way (I don’t think it’s actually a publicity stunt, I just think Marvel is exploiting it as such to it’s full potential) but no matter what, I applaud them.
Revealed in Marvel Comics’ Ultimate Fallout Issue 4, out Wednesday, the new Spider-Man in the Ultimate universe is a half-black, half-Hispanic teen named Miles Morales. He takes over the gig held by Peter Parker, who was killed in Ultimate Spider-Man Issue 160 in June.
In his first appearance, he simply breaks up a fight. But readers will learn the true origin of Morales and how he became the new Spider-Man when Ultimate Spider-Man relaunches in September with a new No. 1 issue.
“The theme is the same: With great power comes great responsibility,” says writer Brian Michael Bendis. “He’s going to learn that. Then he has to figure out what that means.”
A while back I made an attempt at casting a Stealth movie and with the passage of time, I figure a return might be in order. Only thing is, this time instead of casting one actor for each individual role, I’m going to offer up some different options and encourage you readers out there to let me know what you think! First up (obviously 🙂 ) is the star of the show, Stealth himself and his his alter-ego Allen White. The actor for this role needs to fit three important criteria- be young enough to realistically portray a teenager, have an athletic look and be a pretty good actor. With that in mind, here are three possibilities with some brief commentary, let me know what you think!
Tristan Wilds has spent the last three years starring on UPN’s 90210 revival and before that played on HBO’s The Wire so he’s got a good track record and again, could be ready for stardom with just one big role. Could that role be in a Stealth movie? Would Tristan make a good Allen/Stealth?
Chris Warren Jr from MTV’s RJ Berger and some Disney teen movie series that seems to have been pretty popular a few years back is the son of two actors so he’s got good genes and could need just one big role to blow him up into stardom. Could a Stealth movie be that one big role? Does Chris have what it takes to play Allen White/Stealth?
Everybody might hate Chris but starring in the UPN show put Tyler James Williams on the map as a potential future star. Could a Stealth movie be an avenue towards that stardom? Would Tyler make a good Allen/Stealth?
