If anybody knows a thing or two about fun and empowering comic book movies, it’s Rachel Talalay. In 1995’s Tank Girl, Talalay introduced the world to the comics’ bizarre world of armored vehicles and mutated kangaroos, and Tank Girl would quickly become a cult classic. You can hardly go to any kind of comic or movie convention without seeing a handful of Tank Girl cosplayers these days, and the film has even earned its fair share of critical reevaluation over the past few years. If Talalay were to make a movie like Tank Girl today, odds are good that fans would flock to its unique vision and punk girl-power vibe. So Hollywood, when Talalay says she’s got a good idea for another superhero movie, maybe you should take her at her word?
Who is the greatest Avenger of all time? You probably have your personal favorites. You probably also have a pretty good idea who the popular favorites might be. We wanted to know for sure, so to mark the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron we conducted a giant-size poll to give you the chance to choose between more than 100 Avengers members, and rank them from least to best. Now the results are in. And we think there are a few surprises.
It appears that Marvel Comics has realized that women read comic books too, so they've decided to take a hint from '50 Shades of Grey' and get all romantic with two new novels featuring the love lives of She-Hulk and 'X-Men's Rogue. Seriously? Seriously.
