Marvel Taps R.L. Stine For Man-Thing

Acclaimed writer R.L. Stine has been tapped to write a new Man-Thing limited series for Marvel.

The horror writer, known for the young adult series Goosebumps, will pen the new tale, which will be heavily inspired by the Tales From the Crypt comics of the 1950s. Tyler Crook will provide covers and German Peralta will handle the interior art.

Each issue will also include a short story from Stine, each drawn by a guest artist.

Man-Thing first debuted in 1971, and Stine's version will feature a very unique ability.

“He can talk and he’s very sarcastic,” said Stine. “I’m going to do a lot of action and a lot of great violence and make it creepy, but I’m going to make it funny at the same time."

Sounds really good to us!

In the first story from the 73-year-old Stine, Man-Thing heads to Burbank, California wondering why he is not starring in a major motion picture.

Come to think of it, we're wondering the same thing!

Look for Man-Thing #1 to arrive on newsstands in March of 2017.

Gypsy Is Coming To The Flash In 2017

As we await the return of the DC TV Universe slate, new information for one of those shows has come to light! During a recent edition of CW Fan Feast, Carlos Valdes, who plays Cisco Ramon on The Flash, has revealed that Justice League Detroit member Gypsy is coming to the show!

“There’s going to be a new visitor to our world named Gypsy. DC Comics fans will be familiar with Gypsy. She is going to be coming in our world and Vibe will definitely get to learn some new skills as part of getting to know her. So I’m excited to see how that plays out.”

In the pages of DC Comics Gypsy is Cynthia Reynolds, a meta-human with the ability to cast illusions. She is able to turn invisible and can even blend into backgrounds. She has fought against the forces of injustice as a member of the Birds Of Prey, Justice League Detroit and Justice League Task Force.

It will be interesting to see how this new DC TV heroine will compare to her comic counterpart. Additionally, given Valdes' comments above, it sounds as though she may come from an alternate earth other than our own.

The Flash Season 3 returns with new episodes on January 24, 2017.

Hit The Gas With The New Fast 8 Trailer Teaser

Universal Pictures has released an action-packed trailer teaser for the eighth chapter of the hugely successful Fast And Furious franchise! The full trailer arrives on Sunday, but until then, check out this high octane tease featuring plenty of explosive footage...

On the heels of 2015’s Furious 7, one of the fastest movies to reach $1 billion worldwide in box-office history and the sixth-biggest global title of all time, comes the newest chapter in one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time: The Fate of the Furious.

Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.

From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family.

For The Fate of the Furious, Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell. In addition to Theron, the series welcomes newcomers Scott Eastwood and Oscar® winner Helen Mirren. The film is directed by F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and produced by returning producers Neal H. Moritz, Michael Fottrell and Diesel.
