I don’t like how Marvel is building hype for their upcoming “Death of Wolverine” storyline. Like, I remember when Supe’s was killed by Doomsday, we legit thought he was never coming back. And when Cap was killed during the CivilWar, it was a shock that a fellow hero did it. Even with Peter Parker, they brought in a new Spiderman!
All things we weren’t expecting, even if in the back of our minds we knew we’d see them again somehow. But spending months telling readers to “get ready” for Logan’s death is…just…weird…
COMICBOOK MOVIE EDITION:
1. JGL IN JLA [io9.com]
You know how movie rumors go, but it seems that enough credible sources are getting behind this story to make it legit…
Joseph Gordon Levitt (who played Robin in The Dark Knight Rises) will be the new Batman in DC’s upcoming Justice League movie!!!
This makes sense, with Chris Nolan moving from Bats to the Superman remake. Let the tie-in’s begin!
2. XMEN4 UPDATE [Twitter]
Bryan Singer is the new director of the X-Men franchise (the original, not the parallel ‘First Class’ series…) and tweeted today that Ian Mckellen and Patrick Stewart have signed on to reprise their roles as Magneto and Prof X. Even more exciting is that they’ve chosen to go the direction of “Days of Future Past” one of the most iconic comicbook storylines ever!
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS?
Is DC taking the Marvel route with their movies a good thing? Is continuing on with two X-Men movie franchises a smart move?

5. PREMIUM RUSH

Read it [here]
4. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
I started the summer loathing the idea ofanotherreboot, but found myself seeing this movie twice, a pleasant surprise!
I was looking forward to this movie for well over a year, planned a whole mini-road trip with friends for opening night, and saw it 2 more times in theaters after that!
2. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
It’s the friggin end to the legendary Nolan trilogy…
1. THE AVENGERS
This takes the top spot solely for it’s ability to allow me the pleasure of escaping reality for a few moments to fall back into my childhood. I saw it multiple times, played the stupid game on Fbook, read the fanfiction, and am very excited for the upcoming TV show, and ran Marvel movie marathons in celebration before and after it’s release.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER MOVIE OF 2012?
