Hero Blend #30: Why An Aquaman Movie Is An Important Risk For DC
Even the most die-hard of fans can probably understand why Aquaman has become a bit of a pop culture punchline. On a completely surface level, having powers that largely concern bodies of water seems a bit limiting (especially when so much of the main action is happening on land), and conversing with animals – particularly fish – can be seen as being kind of silly. In spite of these “issues,” however, Aquaman remains an original Justice League member and has been a mainstay of DC Comics going back to 1941.

Hero Blend #29: DC Comics Just Changed The Future Of Comic Book Movies
Marvel Studios certainly has a jump start on the DC when it comes to building a cinematic universe, having been establishing itself as a brand since 2008, but don’t count the home of Batman and Superman out. In addition to having the big blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice scheduled to hit theaters in 2016, they have huge active plans for the entire rest of the decade. And this week we got a very limited peak into exactly what they have in the works.

Hero Blend #27: What To Expect From Marvel, DC And Fox At San Diego Comic-Con 2014
In the world of comic book movies, there is perhaps no bigger event in the world than San Diego Comic-Con. Every year, the major studios arrive in the coastal Southern California city to present previews of their biggest genre and fan-driven projects – and perhaps the most anticipated ones are the big blockbuster superhero films coming out over the next few years.

Hero Blend #26: What Female Thor And The New Captain America Mean For The Marvel Cinematic Universe
While the first 25 episodes of Hero Blend focused solely largely on superhero adaptations both at the movies and on television, this week we’re going back to the source. Marvel has made two huge announcements about a couple of their biggest characters, and it has sent a shockwave through the entire comic book-appreciating world.

Hero Blend #25: 10 Things You Don't Know About Guardians Of The Galaxy
Movies centering on Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and Hulk were risky but necessary ventures when Marvel Studios was first starting out, as those heroes don’t have quite the same pop culture name recognition as heroes like Spider-Man or the Fantastic Four. As we’ve been saying for a few years now, however, the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy is in its own category within this department.

Hero Blend #24: What Should Marvel Studios Do With Hulk?
As successful as Marvel Studios has become building their own huge big screen franchise with heroes like Iron Man, Captain America and Thor, the future of the Hulk remains a big question mark. Released in 2008, The Incredible Hulk has, to date, been the biggest box office disappointment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and as a result is the only movie thus far that doesn’t have either an existing sequel or in active production.

Hero Blend #23: What Doctor Strange And Thanos Mean For Marvel Studios' Future
When it comes to the goings-on at Marvel Studios, nobody knows more than President Kevin Feige. One of the original architects of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he’s the one pulling the strings of just about every move the company makes. His authority makes it so that when he speaks, geeks listen – and this week he spoke A LOT.

Hero Blend #22: The Future Of The DC Cinematic Universe
DC Comics has long had distinct advantage over Marvel where big screen adaptations are concerned. While the latter sold off the movie rights to many of its most popular characters years ago – including Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four – the former made a partnership with Warner Bros. pictures years ago that kept all of the company’s characters under one roof. Only now, however, does it appear that DC is finally taking advantage of this fact.

Hero Blend #21: Marvel Studios' Ant-Man Finds Direction
With Edgar Wright no longer involved, Ant-Man is now being written by Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) and directed by Peyton Reed (Bring It On, Down With Love). Clearly these are not two names that the average person immediately thinks of when they are discussion potential comic book movie directors, and as a result the decision has been surrounded by quite a bit of controversy.

Hero Blend #20: Ant-Man's Director Is Out, Doctor Strange's Director Is In
The past couple of weeks has been filled with all kinds of director drama for the folks over at Marvel Studios. It all began when an unauthorized rewrite drove Edgar Wright away from the director’s chair for Ant-Man. The drama stirred up all kinds of conversations, but the story that has persisted the longest is the weirdly futile attempts to find Wright’s replacement.

 Hero Blend #19: Introducing Marvel Studios' Daredevil
Marvel Studios has a long-established history of playing their cards close to the chest, and certainly one of their most secretive projects has been the upcoming series Daredevil, which will be the first in a collection of shows that will eventually be coming to Netflix. Slowly but surely, however, details have emerged about the project… and this week we were gifted with some huge developments.

Hero Blend #18: X-Men: Days Of Future Past Reviewed (Spoilers Edition!)
Our spoiler-free review of Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past went online a full 10 days ago, with our very own Sean O’Connell giving the movie four and a half stars out of five, praising both the film’s engaging story and exciting action sequences. But now that screenings have officially begun in the United States it’s time to dive into the nitty-gritty.

Hero Blend #17: Batman Vs. Superman Reveals Its New Dark Knight
Given that this is the first time we’ve talked about a costume reveal on Hero Blend, I decided to go for a special co-host. Rather than having one of my fellow reporter friends on, this week I am joined by Tony D’Amato, a professional storyboard artist and big Batman fan. We had a great chat about both the new Batsuit and the Batmobile, so enjoy the episode posted inside!

Hero Blend #16: A First Look Into The Dark, Dirty World Of Gotham
Next week we will see the season finales of both the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the second season of Arrow, but rather than discussing endings, this week we are talking about beginnings. This fall we expect to be seeing the debut of a number of new comic book television shows, and this past Monday we got our first real look at one of the biggest ones: Gotham.
