  • SDCC: Aquaman nets a Christmas release…

    It’s been a long-standing joke that Aquaman seemed to be the runt of the comics litter – or more accurately the tiddler in the sea of superheroes. The simplistic and bright orange costume and his ability to talk to the creatures of the sea were often played as a...
  • SDCC: Will Shyamalan’s ‘Glass’ save or shatter?

    M. Night Shyamalan burst onto the scene with 1999’s superb The Sixth Sense, still considered a classic slice of cinema.  Much was predicted for the writer / director but his 2000 follow-up, Unbreakable – also featuring Bruce Willis, now alongside Samuel L. Jackson – was not quite what was...
