It’s Never Too Early For A Kingsman 2 Teaser Poster

kingsman_2_poster

After being one of the surprise hits of last year, it wasn’t a big surprise when a sequel for Kingsman: The Secret Service was announced.  It was based on the (arguably superior) graphic novel The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons…which does not have a sequel.  So it looks like Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be an original story by director Matthew Vaughn, but I’m sure Millar will have some input.

The poster above also teases a pretty big resurrection planned for the sequel.  If you have seen the movie you will know exactly what it refers too.  If not, what is wrong with you?  Don’t you like great movies?

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theatres in June of 2017.

Jimmy Recommends: Chrononauts

gabbing-geek-jimmy-recommends-2

I may or may not have a friend who is working on a super secret project with writer Mark Millar.  He may or may not have asked me to familiarize myself with Millarworld for reference.  So this past weekend I checked out a book called Chrononauts from Image Comics.  And so should you.  I’ll break down why after the cut.

Wolverine 3 Is Old Man Logan?

Yes, that is a Venom symbiote over a dinosaur.

Hugh Jackman is going to play Wolverine one last time.  At the San Diego Comic Con over the weekend, he suggested his final go-around with the character may be based off the “Old Man Logan” storyline.

That…would be a great send-off for the character actually.  Too bad they can’t make a particularly faithful adaptation.

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars Part Nine (Old Man Logan Edition)

old_man_logan_Wolverine_66

Old Man Logan was a popular storyline that ran through the regular Wolverine title (and one Giant Size) for eight issues back in 2008/2009.  Written by Mark Millar with art by Steve McNiven it is set fifty years in the future where supervillians have won the day and Logan is long since retired.  I won’t spoil anything here, but it is well worth hunting down in trade format.

The story has proven to be so popular it has caught the eye of Doom who made it a domain on Battleworld.  There are even rumors of it being the basis for Wolverine 3.  I’m skeptical of that, but it would help to explain how ageless Wolverine has aged so much since the 2000 release of the first X-Men movie.

After the break we’ll look at Old Man Logan #1 and #2.  Or as Ryan likes to call them, #1 and #1.5.  We’ll get into that…

Also, if you are like me and haven’t read all of Johnathon Hickman’s Avengers run leading up to Secret Wars, be sure to take Tom’s Road To Secret Wars course at gabbinggeekuniversity.com.  The reading materials are online here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six and Part Seven.

And that course is a prerequisite to the other parts of this series: Part One, Part Two, Part Three,Part Four, Part Five, Part Six, Part Seven, Part Eight

I have a reputation on Gabbing Geek as a guy who doesn’t like comic books.  This knock is generally well deserved.  I don’t like much anymore.  But there is a certain kind of comic that even to this day will cause me to get dressed, get in the car, head to the comic shop, and buy a comic sit in my underwear, fire up the ol’ tablet, click Comixology on my browser, and download a digital file.  What are these amazing tales you ask?
