  1. Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – The Many Masks of Moon Knight!

    Moon Knight is a cool character who, sadly, has often suffered from strange decisions and some creators not knowing what to do with him. Throughout it all, he's remained Marc Spector, a former mercenary who became a vigilante cloaked in silver because he absolutely wants the bad guys to see him coming. Recently, writer Warren Ellis and artists Declan Shelvey and Jordie Bellaire have reinvented the character for the new ongoing Moon Knight series. I highly recommend it for fans old and new. But before we chat any further about the new series, let's delve into the history of this lunar avenger of the night who had to die before he could live as a hero.

  2. Twitter Remembers Margaret Thatcher

    Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died at the age of 87 due to complications from a stroke. Her name quickly shot up to one of the top trending topics on Twitter, because Twitter loves talking about a notable death. Thatcher was nothing if not a controversial figure in Britain, and while many supporters are mourning her passing, plenty of folks are on the verge of celebration, while others are just using her passing to crack jokes. Here's a brief sampling of Twitter's reaction to the former PM's passing.

    Great Moments in Advertising

    Get More: MTV Shows

    Comic writer and novelist Warren Ellis has a lengthy list of credits to his name. Transmetropolitan, FreakAngels, Crooked Little Vein, Fell, and The Authority to name a few. Next on his agenda is a new book title Gun Machine about a detective who finds a room full of guns from unsolved murders, the perpetrator of which, may be working for some very old Manhattan gods. If that wasn't enough to intrigue you, check out this trailer narrated by Wil Wheaton, illustrated by Ben Templesmith, and directed by Jim Batt (who you may remember from the Molly Crabapple illustrated video for Kim Boekbinder). Gun Machine is out now from Mulholland Books. (via MTV Geek) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  4. The Saga of Neil Gaiman’s Hat Shows Twitter In Miniature

    the internet is serious business

    What began with a candid admission of ones own human limitations becomes a harrowing sci-fi narrative featuring Wesley Crusher up against the terrifying foe of Warrellis, the all consuming force from outside space-time that birthed entropy into our universe. And then somebody made a novelty twitter account for it. Previously in Neil Gaiman

  5. Iron Man 3 Casting News: Jessica Chastain and Guy Pearce Join This Behemoth Marvel Movie

    Excelsior!

    We have some casting announcements for Iron Man 3, and yes, everyone is going to be in this movie. Yup. All of the actors are getting roles in Iron Man 3, and all of the actors who were in the second movie are back for the third one. It is shaping up to be the most partytime awesome crowd in a Marvel movie, ever: because now, Jessica Chastain and Guy Pearce have signed on. Surely there will also be room for Ben Stiller so he can meet his six-movies-per-year quota.

  6. Joss Whedon And Warren Ellis Join For A Non-Sing-Along Web Series

    And Fansplosions Abound

    It was announced last year that Joss Whedon and Warren Ellis would be teaming up for a web series. There was a slight hiccup in the plans of course, Whedon was asked to direct The Avengers (which, from what we've seen so far, seems like a good move). With months of production and post-production still left to go on the Marvel series, Whedon wants to make sure we know he hasn't forgetting about the web series with the comic scribe.

  8. Helen Mirren Says She’s Ready for Another RED

    million dollar lady

    Dame Helen Mirren has confirmed her involvement in the sequel to RED, the 2010 sleeper hit of an action movie based on Warren Ellis' comic that turned this awesome woman in her 60s into a serious action star (National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets notwithstanding). The sequel, which was announced back in January, doesn't have anyone else officially on board at the moment, but if Mirren is on board, then everyone else is just going to look like a huge bummer if they turn it down.

  9. Red 2 Is Looking For A Director

    Cautiously Optimistic

    So they found a director for Die Hard 5, which according to the Mohs scale of mineral hardness puts this particular death alongside cobalt, obsidian, and tooth enamel. It's John Moore, in case anyone was interested. We're much more interested in another related-only-by-the-serendipity-of-Bruce-Willis tidbit of news: that Die Hard 5 is trying to get off the ground and finished before Summit Entertainment makes good on the roughly $120 million in profits it made on last summer's Red and puts its sequel into production. Why are we interested? Could it be getting to watch Dame Helen Mirren wielding some more giant guns? Well...

  10. How The DCnU Is Succeeding In At Least One Respect

    i'll just leave this here

    The New DC comics stuff looks so much like stuff I would never read that it oddly fills me with hope that they are targetting the core audience they want. If a 43-year old man looks at most of this promo stuff and goes meh, then that’s very probably a good sign for them. Best of luck to Dan D, Jim L et all for the imminent relaunch. -- Warren Ellis, whose style of backhand has won him many a match of compliment tennis. (Warren Ellis via The Beat.)
