Why 2015 could be the greatest year ever for geeky movies

November 12th, 2013 · 1 Comment

It’s a bold prediction, I know, but I’m fairly certain that there’s never been a year of geek-friendly movies quite like 2015 is shaping up to be. That’s the argument I make in this week’s column for Movies.com, titled appropriately “Will 2015 Be the Geekiest Movie Year of All Time?” So, what evidence do I […]

September 10th, 2013 · 1 Comment

The first issue of The Avengers was published 50 years ago today, and in honor of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ inaugural team-up, I wrote up a list of lesser-known facts about The Avengers for the readers of Mental Floss.

Even my “Adapt This” column gets the Avengers treatment…

May 10th, 2012 · No Comments

It feels like I’ve done nothing but write about “The Avengers” this week, and I’m sure it feels like you’ve read nothing but stories about “The Avengers” here, too. But such is life on my side of things, true believers. (Yes, I’ve got Stan Lee-isms on my brain right now, for obvious reasons…) And so […]

Remembering the post-credits scenes of Marvel movies past…

May 9th, 2012 · No Comments

With all of the fuss over the post-credits scene in “The Avengers” and what it means for the scope of the franchise, I got thinking about Marvel movies past and all of the great post-credits scenes those movies featured.
