You may not know who Julian Glover is off hand but there’s a good chance you’ve seen something with him in it. The 83-year-old English actor has had an illustrious career, co-starring in such films as The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Troy, Dr. Who, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, co-starred as the villain in 007 For Your Eyes Only and most recently, was seen quite a bit in the smash hit HBO show, Game of Thrones. Talk about a portfolio. I got front row seats to hear the thespian talk about his craft, his experiences, influences and more at Montreal Comiccon.
A surprise treat awaited fans at the Xbox corner at this year’s Montreal Comiccon and that was a hands-on demo for the upcoming game from Square Enix/Crystal Dynamic, Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I got to play the game for around thirty minutes and got a first-hand reaction to combat, puzzles and the tone of the latest entry in the franchise.
Part of the fun of any Comiccon is taking in all the sights and sounds and that includes the plethora of local artists who set up shop to show off their impressive artwork inspired by the films, shows and comics they’ve consumed over the years. One such artist is local boy Chris Moore, who specializes in drawing realistic and comic book inspired portraits of superheroes. While at Comiccon, Chris was kind enough to share his time with me to give me an interview about how he got started, what inspired him and where he’s going.

Sony had a heavy presence at this year’s Montreal Comiccon and nothing was as anticipated as the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man game from Insomniac Games. The studio most recently worked on Sunset Overdrive on the Xbox and now they’re looking to bring your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man to the PlayStation this September.
The Halo franchise is one of the most popular video game series ever made. It’s single-handedly responsible for launching the original Xbox and has since gone on to have five sequels, including the upcoming Halo Infinite, spinoff games like Halo Wars and Halo Reach. While gamers mainly play a Halo game for its competitive and game-changing multiplayer modes, for many its the story that keeps drawing them in.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Jared Leto would star in a film about Morbius the Living Vampire, the sometimes villain, sometimes anti-hero character from the Spider-Man comics.

The news came just days after it was revealed that Sony was also considering going ahead with a Silk spinoff, another character from the Spider-Man roster and who actually has already appeared in the MCU with Spider-Man: Homecoming in a way. With Venom on the horizon and word of a potential Silver Sable and Black Cat film in the works, one has to wonder if all these Spider-Man related films can work in a universe without Spider-Man?
Disney’s is going full steam ahead on its live action remakes. We’ve seen hits like The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast in recent years and have The Lion King, Aladdin and Tim Burton’s Dumbo on the horizon. But as the remakes continue, it’s clear that Disney is clearly focusing the greatest hits from its catalog. And while that’s likely the best move financially, as more people will likely go see something they enjoy already, I think Disney should go deep into the vault and pull The Black Cauldron from out of the darkness.

News just broke out that HBO has officially ordered a Game of Thrones prequel pilot episode set thousands of years before the events of the main series and books. The fantasy epic hasn’t even come to a conclusion yet, with the final eight season due sometime in 2019, but HBO knows a good thing when they see it and want to ensure subscriptions stay up after the show is complete. So naturally, they want to continue to explore the history of Westeros and all it’s complicated families.
There’s a good chance you’re only a fan of the big screen versions of Spider-Man. Also known as Peter Parker, the character has been played by no less than three actors in fourteen years. But Sony recently dropped a full trailer for their next Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse film and behold, the hero isn’t Peter Parker! But just who is he?
