The Epix channel is turning into quite a cool little entertainment platform. This weekend, April 27 – 29, you can watch Thor and Captain America for free – as long as you sign up for a 14-day trial and catch the world premiere of a brand new documentary “The Stan Lee Story” about Stan “The Man” Lee (creator of the majority of Marvel’s characters) – who did give me permission to still his famous Excelsior! The documentary premiered April 27th, but I’m sure you can catch a replay. You can get Epix on your local cable systems, on the web and they have an app available for Xbox 360 (not sure about PS3.) Hurry and register to catch your free viewing of Captain America and Thor. It still amazes me that one man created all of these amazing characters. Here is a taste of the great one’s new documentary.
Stan Lee on Captain America
Captain America #1, the first issue of an all new ongoing series premiering in July from two of the comic industry’s most acclaimed creators—writer Ed Brubaker (Death of Captain America) and artist Steve McNiven (Civil War)!
Steve Rogers is back as Captain America but when a mysterious figure from his past returns with the Sentinel of Liberty in his crosshairs, deadly secrets will surface—and send shockwaves through the lives of everyone Steve holds dear. An all-new, high octane Captain America series begins here, just in time for the First Avenger’s highly anticipated feature film from Marvel Studios.
I’m in Las Vegas this week attending The Official Convention of The National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO), also known as CinemaCon. This is a week when Hollywood comes together with Theater owners to pat each other on the back and say “Job well done…” We also get a glance at what new technology and concepts will be making it to our local Cinemas in the next year. The exhibit floor opens today. Last night Paramount Pictures brought the stars out for a two-hour presentation of new footage from some of the hot upcoming releases. Due to embargo rules I can’t talk about much of what I saw. The two “watch” phrases of the night were “it’s a rough cut,” and “thank you Celine for letting us use the house that you built for the week…”
Every week the fine folks at Marvel send over a bunch of images of their hot upcoming books. Starting this week, I’m going to group all the images into this one handy feature called Marvel Weekly. In this first installment we have the cover of Spider-man’s Fear Itself Poster, the first five pages of Captain America 615.1 and a couple of Secret Avengers Covers. Enjoy!
