I’ve seen the rumors circulating around the web that Iron Man 3 director, Shane Black, is eying Doc Savage as his next film, and I’m not sure how to feel about that.
In the late 1960s and early 70s, few actors stood as tall in their heroic roles as Ron Ely.
From television’s Tarzan to the big screen’s Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze, Ely’s 6-foot-4-inch muscular frame made the scenery cower when he stepped before a camera.
The 74-year-old actor stands just as tall today, commanding audiences with his tales of those golden days of pulp fiction on film. Warner Archive Collection has brought Ely’s best-loved roles back into the spotlight, making the classic titles available on DVD and through its new live-streaming service, Warner Archive Instant.
I have a lot of action figures – a whole room full of figures still carded, loose in boxes, and in various poses around the Nerd Room of Doom, but come 2013, they will all bow before the might that is Doc Savage.
Fans of the classic pulp character Doc Savage will want to get on this before this statue sells out. Electric Tiki and Sideshow Collectibles have teamed for a giant polystone collector’s statue that stands 12-inches high.
DC’s First Wave mini-series is over, but that doesn’t mean the company can’t go back to the well to see what is going on with Batman, Doc Savage, and The Avenger.
DC Comics has announced that J.G. Jones has been tapped to write the next Doc Savage arc that kicks off in Doc Savage #13.
The first part of J.G.’s globe-trotting adventure kicks off in the Egyptian wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and spans all the way to Cairo, which gives him the perfect excuse to give us this painting of DOC SAVAGE fighting a mummy.
I really hope Jones nails the character and feel of Doc and crew, because I’m just on the verge of dropping the series.
The latest installment of First Wave arrives today from DC Comics, and we’ve got a sneak peek to give you a hint of things to come.
No, DC Entertainment hasn’t cancelled the First Wave series (yet) as the long awaited third issue arrives with a gun toting Dark Knight featured as the character of the month.
Doc Savage is making a comeback, and over the next couple of years we’re going to see him not only in comic books, but in a movie that has been in the works for a while. Before official casting is announced, we thought we’d cast our net far and wide and pick our own actors to fill the major roles.
The Man of Bronze, The Fabulous Five, and Cousin Pat! Only this combination of heroes can take on the Lord of Lightning in the latest installment of Doc Savage from DC Comics.
My fascination with Doc Savage never wanes, and Gene Gonzales makes sure the character remains in my radar with this wonderful sketch of Doc with a more time period-appropriate hair cut.
(With apologies to Bunim/Murray) This is the story of eleven characters…picked to live in a new universe… work together and have their adventures penned… to find out what happens… when characters stop living in their own universe… and start something completely different in… First Wave.
DCâ€™s Blackest Night and Marvelâ€™s Siege may be the big events everyone is waiting for, but for this comic fan, the one series Iâ€™ve been waiting months for has been First Wave and the return of pulp and golden age heroes to the pages of comics.Â While I enjoyed the Batman/Doc Savage Special, which served as an introduction to this whole new world, there were some troubling spots.Â Now, four months later, readers finally get a peek at this brave new world.Â Does it have the same problems as before, or has DC truly created a new universe that works?
