If you know anything about me, you’d know that I was a fan of Wizard Magazine, if not that it was an actual magazine stuffed with fun articles about comics and comics related topics. It was a genuine magazine publication devoted to the stuff I loved.
Wizard had letters page, top 10 lists, interviews, previews of upcoming comics and of course this cool column that I always looked forward to: Casting Call, where they would cast actors into completely fabricated comic book adapted movies.
This was when comic book movies were just beginning to emerge in abundance, so this was pretty imaginative and we never really thought that any of the movies would be made...but here we are with 2 or 3 major comic book films coming out every summer!
So you can imagine how happy I am to be a full-fledged comic book columnist and sort of get the chance to keep what Wizard started right here in The Bleed every week!
So, the big Marvel Studios news from Marvel’s Big Shot Mega-Producer Kevin Feige this week was that the rights that 20th Century Fox had to produce Daredevil movies have expired and the rights go back to Marvel, to do with as they please.
