Pour ce qui est des pollens de cyprès, de peuplier, de charme, de saule et de frêne, le risque sera nul à faible.Il est conseillé aux personnes allergiques de bien suivre leur traitement afin de réduire les risques de conjonctivites, de rhumes et d’asthme.Le 30 avril 2010 à 16:27 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgEurope : bien plus de poisson consommé que ne peuvent en produire les mersEurope – Une récente étude réalisée par la New Economics Foundation (NEF) et l’association OCEAN2012 révèle que les Européens consomment plus de poisson que ne peuvent en produire les mers d’Europe, épuisant beaucoup trop vite les réserves halieutiques.D’après ce rapport, les Européens consomment en effet en 189 jours les réserves prévues pour une année. “L’Union européenne est dotée des lieux de pêche les plus vastes et parmi les plus riches de la planète mais, d’une part, elle n’a pas réussi à les gérer de manière responsable et d’autre part, elle exporte désormais ses excédents dans d’autres parties du monde”, souligne Aniol Esteban, économiste de la NEF et d’OCEAN2012. La première est un groupe de réflexion et d’action sur les politiques environnementales, tandis qu’OCEAN2012 est une alliance d’organisations visant à transformer la politique européenne de la pêche.Selon l’étude menée par ces deux organismes, l’Europe devient importatrice de poissons dès le 9 juillet, date avancée au 20 juin dans le cas de la France. Pour offrir à l’Europe une meilleure autosuffisance, la NEF préconise de réduire la capacité de pêche, d’améliorer la collecte des informations, la transparence et la communication, et de donner la priorité aux avis scientifiques pour déterminer les quotas de captures. “Restaurer nos écosystèmes marins,  adapter la consommation de poisson aux ressources disponibles, voilà des mesures qui s’imposent pour enrayer cette tendance néfaste” conclut M. Esteban.Le 18 juillet 2010 à 11:03 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Méditerranée  augmentation significative du niveau de la mer

first_imgMéditerranée : augmentation significative du niveau de la mer L’augmentation du niveau de la mer Méditerranée a doublé ces dix dernières années. Cette constatation vient d’être révélée dans une étude menée par l’Institut Espagnol d’Océanographie (IEO).Les mesures de 1948 à 2008 le confirment : la mer Méditerranée a augmenté de 15 à 20 centimètres au cours du XXe siècle. Pour en arriver à une telle conclusion, l’IEO s’est lancé dans une vaste étude, exposée par le site notre-planete.info. Les chercheurs se sont principalement basés sur les relevés océaniques et atmosphériques auxquels ils ont appliqué un modèle d’analyse des oscillations périodiques. Les résultats montrent que l’augmentation du niveau de la mer, de trois millimètres par an, représente depuis le début des années 2000 une accélération significative. Si cet accroissement se poursuit sur le même rythme, la mer devrait avoir augmenté de 35 centimètres de plus au cours du XXIe siècle. Selon les scientifiques, les paramètres agissant sur le niveau de la mer sont : la pression atmosphérique, l’augmentation de la quantité d’eau provoquée par la fonte des glaces, et la dilatation de l’eau due à son réchauffement. Ces deux derniers paramètres sont directement liés au réchauffement climatique dont il est pour le moment, difficile de prédire l’évolution. Toutefois les experts sont formels quant aux conséquences que pourrait avoir une nouvelle augmentation d’une vingtaine de centimètres qui affecterait de façon considérable les nombreuses îles et zones côtières densément peuplées. De plus, le réchauffement de l’eau pourrait également influer sur les caractéristiques physico-chimiques de la mer et modifier sensiblement les écosystèmes aquatiques.Le 1 avril 2011 à 12:54 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Après la mise en cause des laboratoires Servier et des instances du gouvernement, certaines victimes du Mediator souhaitent porter plainte contre leur médecin traitant si ce dernier ne veut pas leur fournir leur dossier médical. Car le fameux dossier constitue une pièce maîtresse afin de prouver qu’elles ont bien pris le médicament incriminé depuis plusieurs mois déjà. Ainsi, si l’on en croit France Soir, la première plainte contre un médecin traitant pourrait être déposée dès la semaine prochaine dans le Var. À lire aussiAntihistaminique : qu’est-ce que c’est ? A quoi ça sert ?Le dossier médical est une pièce cruciale dans l’affaire du Mediator, car pour pouvoir être indemnisées, les victimes ont besoin de prouver qu’elles ont bel et bien pris le médicament de Servier, que cela soit comme antidiabétique ou comme coupe-faim. De son côté, l’avocate des victimes, Me Christine Ravaz, a déclaré sur Europe 1 : “Le patient a le droit d’obtenir la communication intégrale de son dossier. Est-ce que les médecins cherchent à se couvrir de leurs responsabilités ? Le Mediator était uniquement autorisé pour les diabétiques de type 2, mais des médecins l’ont souvent prescrit comme coupe-faim, sans indiquer sur l’ordonnance que la prescription était hors autorisation de mise sur le marché”. Et l’avocate de préciser qu’elle a également saisi Xavier Bertrand, ministre de la Santé. En ce qui concerne l’UFC-Que Choisir, en charge également du dossier Mediator, son responsable juridique, Nicolas Godefroy, a fait savoir au micro de la radio qu’il souhaitait “engager la responsabilité de Servier” mais pas forcément des médecins généralistes.Le 18 avril 2011 à 13:18 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgLes baleines franches de retour en Nouvelle-Zélande Publiant leurs résultats dans Marine Ecology Progress Series, des biologistes néo-zélandais et américains ont confirmé l’origine subantarctique des rares baleines franches qui fréquentent à nouveau, depuis quelques années, les côtes de la grande île : un sanctuaire que les cétacés, décimés par la chasse, avaient oublié, et redécouvrent aujourd’hui.”Nous avons utilisé le profilage ADN afin de confirmer que 7 baleines migrent maintenant entre les îles subantarctiques et l’île sud de la Nouvelle-Zélande. Ce sont probablement les tous premiers pionniers. Les baies protégées de la Nouvelle Zélande sont d’excellents lieux de reproduction, et je soupçonne que nous pourrons bientôt voir d’autres baleines suivre ces pionniers et recoloniser leur ancien habitat”, dit  Scott Baker, de l’Institut sur les mammifères marins à l’Université de l’Oregon.À lire aussiUn village de Nouvelle-Zélande veut bannir les chats pour protéger sa fauneDécimées par les baleiniers depuis le début du XIXe siècle, les baleines franches australes avaient oublié, ‘faute de combattants’, ces  baies néo-zélandaises, havres de paix pour hiverner et pouponner, dont l’emplacement se transmettait ‘de mère en fille’ parmi les populations de cétacés passant l’été autour des îles subantarctiques situées loin au sud.”Cette ‘fidélité maternelle’ a contribué à la vulnérabilité de ces populations locales, qui ont rapidement été chassées jusqu’à leur extinction”, déclare Emma Carroll, auteur principal de l’étude, dans laquelle les auteurs concluent : “Cette fidélité au lieu de mise bas peut être considérée comme un type de mémoire culturelle, et il semble que cette mémoire (…) peut être perdue avec [la disparition] des baleines qui habitaient autrefois ces régions”.Le 3 juillet 2011 à 19:14 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Une peine infligée suite à la marée noire provoquée par la fuite d’un puits de la firme au large de Rio le 9 novembre dernier. Chevron devra s’acquitter d’une amende de 28 millions de dollars que vient de lui infliger l’Institut brésilien de l’environnement (Ibama) suite à la marée noire engendrée par la fuite d’un puits en cours de perforation dans le champ de Frade, à 370 kilomètres au large des côtes de l’Etat de Rio. Cette condamnation a été annoncée lundi par le secrétaire à l’Environnement de l’Etat de Rio de Janeiro, Carlos Minc, rapporte l’AFP. Ce dernier a en outre indiqué son intention de saisir la justice pour obtenir des indemnités supplémentaires. À lire aussiUn lion retrouve la liberté après avoir vécu en cage pendant 13 ans (Vidéo)Au total, Chevron pourrait écoper d’amendes atteignant 100 millions de reais, soit 56 millions de dollars, a précisé M.

Le secrétaire à l’Environnement a également menacé Chevron de “ne plus avoir le droit de participer à des appels d’offre pendant cinq ans”. De son côté, le ministre de l’Energie Edison Lobao s’est engagé à agir “avec le maximum de rigueur dans l’analyse de ce qui s’est passé et des mesures à prendre” alors que le pays est sur le point de lancer l’exploitation de très grands gisements récemment découverts en eaux très profondes au large du Brésil.L’équivalent de 2.400 barils de pétrole dans les eaux Chevron, qui a mis quatre jours à colmater la fuite, a admis son entière responsabilité dans la marée noire. “L’important est que la source qui alimentait la fissure a été stoppée en quatre jours alors que notre base de soutien est à 370 kilomètres des côtes”, a déclaré le directeur de Chevron au Brésil, George Buck. Désormais, a-t-il précisé, “moins de 20 barils de pétrole résiduel”, remontent chaque jour à la surface. Au total, a estimé M. Buck, l’équivalent de 2.400 barils ont fui. Mais l’Agence nationale du pétrole (ANP) estime que la quantité de pétrole déversée dans la mer est en réalité deux à trois fois supérieure.Le 22 novembre 2011 à 13:16 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgUne nouvelle étude de la CNIL sur le lien entre Smartphone et vie privéeL’étude, commandée à Médiamétrie, a sondé 2.315 français, utilisateurs de smartphone, pour connaître leurs habitudes liées à celui-ci. Les questions portaient essentiellement sur leurs données personnelles, la protection de celles-ci…Voici ce qu’il en ressort. – Le smartphone est un terminal universel qui s’adapte aux usages de chacun. 22% des utilisateurs y stockent des photos (tout en pensant que c’est gênant de le faire), les 15-17 ans accèdent à leurs réseaux sociaux et autres loisirs, les 25-49 ans apprécient l’aspect “multitâche” et enfin, les 50 ans et plus aiment l’aspect communicatif.- Le smartphone indispensable 24h/24, 7jrs/7 : 7 utilisateurs sur 10 ne l’éteignent jamais. 1/4 le font uniquement pour dormir.- Le smartphone ou comment stocker des informations personnelles en masse: plus de 80% y stockent des données personnelles comme des contacts, des coordonnées et des fichiers multimédias (photos, vidéos…). De même, 40% des utilisateurs y stockent des données confidentielles comme des codes bancaires ou encore des codes d’accès aux immeubles.- Le smartphone est peu protégé, et donc, son contenu l’est encore moins. 65% des possesseurs le savent, mais 30% n’ont aucun code de protection actif. – Les utilisations de données personnelles sont mal connues: 51% des utilisateurs pensent que les données du smartphone ne sont pas enregistrées ni cédées sans leur accord…- La géolocalisation, un atout important. 65% des parents souhaiteraient géolocaliser leurs enfants. 55% des utilisateurs ont déjà utilisé un service de géolocalisation.Selon l’étude, il semblerait que les 15-17 ans protègent mieux leur smartphone en moyenne par rapport aux autres tranches d’âges d’utilisateurs. Pour sensibiliser les possesseurs de smartphone, la CNIL, en plus de son étude intéressante, propose 10 conseils pour la sécurité et la maitrise de son téléphone (comme noter le numéro IMEI du terminal pour pouvoir le bloquer en cas de vol ou encore installer un antivirus quand cela est possible…). Chacun de nous peut se retrouver un peu dans ces sondages. Par les temps qui courrent, mieux vaut être prudent, donc n’hésitez pas à jeter un coup d’œil sur les autres conseils de la CNIL, à cette adresse.

first_imgWindows 8 : la bêta devient une version d’essaiLa prochaine version préliminaire de Windows 8 est prévue pour fin février. Mais pas avec le nom sous lequel elle était attendue. À priori, Windows 8 Bêta deviendra Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Il est difficile de savoir si ce changement de nom aura un réel impact. Et impossible de déterminer si “Consumer Preview” désigne une version préliminaire destinée au grand public, ou bien si c’est seulement son nouveau nom. C’est Janelle Poole, directrice des relations publiques pour le grand public chez Microsoft, qui a vendu la mèche en première en précisant que “nous avançons étape par étape, donc nous parlons maintenant de la prochaine étape qui est la consumer preview prévue pour fin février”.Mais la newsletter de Windows du 24 janvier confirme “la sortie de la Consumer Preview de Windows 8 à la fin du mois de février”. Tout porte à croire que le comportement de Microsoft pour Windows 8 devrait différer de celui de Windows 7. En effet, apparemment, la Consumer Preview sera pratiquement identique à la version finale, sauf qu’elle ne sera pas commerciale. La firme de Redmond ne recueillera donc pas les retours utilisateurs comme pour Windows 7. Windows 8 inaugure l’interface Metro et le Windows Store. Elle reste prévue pour la fin du mois de février.

Comment la structure des poissons a donné naissance aux hanches des quadrupèdes

On

first_imgComment la structure des poissons a donné naissance aux hanches des quadrupèdesPubliant ses travaux dans la revue Evolution and Development, une équipe australo-suédoise a mis en évidence, dans la structure osseuse de certains poissons, des éléments clés ayant pu conduire, en peu d’étapes évolutives, aux prémices des hanches des tétrapodes.  Les tétrapodes (les animaux quadrupèdes) sont apparus voici environ 395 millions d’années et ont pu faire leurs premiers pas sur terre grâce à des hanches fortes connectées à la colonne vertébrale par un os iliaque. Des caractéristiques qui n’étaient pas présentes chez leurs ancêtres poissons… Mais celles-ci auraient pu apparaître plus ‘facilement’ qu’on ne le pensait jusqu’à présent.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?C’est du moins ce que suggère une étude réalisée par le Dr Catherine Boisvert, de l’Institut australien de médecine régénérative de l’Université Monash, le Pr Jean Joss de l’Université Macquarie (Australie) et le Pr Per Ahlberg de l’Université d’Uppsala (Suède). Pour en arriver là, ces chercheurs ont comparé le développement de la hanche – os et muscles – du dipneuste d’Australie (Neoceratodus forsteri), un poisson doté d’un poumon primitif, et de l’Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum), un amphibien doté d’une queue. “Beaucoup de muscles considérés comme ‘nouveaux’ chez les tétrapodes ont évolué à partir de muscles existant déjà chez le dipneuste. Nous avons également trouvé les indices d’une voie nouvelle et plus simple par laquelle les structures squelettiques auraient [également] évolué”, a observé le Dr Boisvert. Les scientifiques ont constaté que les ischions (partie de l’os iliaque) auraient évolué par l’extension du pubis, déjà existant.Le raccordement à la colonne vertébrale aurait lui, évolué à partir d’un processus iliaque déjà présent chez le poisson. “La transition de l’océan à [l’environnement] terrestre a été un événement majeur dans l’évolution des animaux terrestres, y compris les humains, et [acquérir] une hanche modifiée a été une étape essentielle. Notre recherche montre que ce qui semblait au départ un grand changement de morphologie pourrait s’être fait avec relativement peu d’étapes de développement”, conclut ainsi le Dr Boisvert.Le 18 mai 2013 à 19:40 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

NYCC Monster Hunter World is the Monster Hunter Game Ive Always Wanted

On

first_img During NYCC, I got to play Monster Hunter World. The game won me over after Capcom announced it at this year’s E3, so I was very excited to play this demo. I was put in a group with other players who were clearly series veterans. Even though I have next to no Monster Hunter experience, I held my own fairly well. Most importantly, I had a ton of fun tracking down and slaying giant beasts. If an admitted Monster Hunter skeptic such as myself is impressed by this game, I’m sure it’ll open the doors to other new fans.I started the demo at a base camp where I chose my equipment. For this first hunt, I went with a sword and shield. After familiarizing myself with my inventory and the game’s controls, I followed my teammates out of camp to begin the hunt. I tracked the monster by interacting with portions of the environment the beast had visited. A glowing green light led me to where I needed to go.Eventually, we found the monster and began our attack. Things were going great until the beast suddenly ran away. We gave chase and ended up in the creature’s lair. This all felt like a trap. My instincts were proven correct when a giant Anjanath ambushed the party. This new, T-Rex-like monster was a far cry from the sluggish, over-sized iguana we were originally hunting. What began as a leisurely hunt soon became a battle for survival against a truly fearsome foe.The scenario I found myself in speaks to Monster Hunter World’s dynamic nature. Unlike previous games, situations can change dramatically. Players must adapt in order to face whatever obstacles stand in their way. Conversely, players can take advantage of the game’s seemingly random nature. For example, we used hidden vines to momentarily immobilize the Anjanath. The game encourages users to mind their surroundings to discover what they can use to ensure a successful hunt.After dispatching the Anjanath, we had to face off against one of the series’ signature monsters, Rathalos. For those who don’t know, Rathalos is a giant, fire-breathing dragon who uses its spiky tail as a club. Its physical attacks were formidable, but the fact it could stun the group with its cries made it even more dangerous. Needless to say, this monster was not a joke.Rathatlos was difficult to hit since it could fly. For this battle, I had a longsword. While it has great reach, it requires extra time to swing and land a hit. This made hitting our flying quarry tricky. After a while, I had a good rhythm going and was able to land strikes fairly consistently. However, Rathalos soon tired of our shenanigans and flew off to parts unknown. We gave chase (and battled another Anjanath along the way) but our time was up, and the demo came to a somewhat anti-climactic close.While searching for monsters to slay, I made sure to check out the sights. Monster Hunter World’s stylized, detailed graphics make it a stunning looking game. Everything from the environments, characters, weather effects, day/night cycle, and monsters, are all visually impressive. All of this isn’t purely for show either, as the world informs you of places you can use to aid in hunts or hidden locations. It was clear how much work went into designing the game’s world.Due to the subpar presentation and cumbersome control scheme, I could never get into Monster Hunter. Monster Hunter World, on the other hand, is everything I ever wanted to see from the series. Even from the demo I played, the game’s depth was evident. The series has always been a hit in Japan but is barely known in the West. I believe Monster Hunter World has the potential to turn the franchise into a worldwide hit.Expect Monster Hunter World to drop on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 26.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Happy Birthday Margaret Peggy Carter

On

first_img James Gunn Once Again Directing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’Dark Phoenix Trailer Released & More Marvel Movie News Stay on target No woman in Marvel compares to the one, the only Margaret “Peggy” Carter. Forever the force to be recognized with, we know so little about this Virginian bombshell, but we also know so much about her. As confusing as that is to say, think about it for a second and compare her to other SHIELD against Today, we’re celebrating the birthday of one of our first American heroes, Peggy Carter.Born Margaret “Peggy” Carter, she was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and has seen and lived so many lives on and off the field. Peggy’s first appearance was in Tales of Suspense #75, but then later had a more prominent part next to Captain America as his love interest in a flashback. However, it wasn’t until Captain America #162, where we got our first full view, and Peggy was her own person. The issue also featured Sharon Carter, who was Peggy’s sister in this issue, but later retconned from sister to aunt. Strange, I know. There’s little known about Peggy before she joined the French Resistance. Our girl was born in Richmond, Virginia and joined the Resistance as a teenager. She rose to the ranks as a skilled fighter and then became an agent because of her detail-oriented mind, honed fighting skills, absolute wit and fierce loyalty.Peggy is someone who should be greatly admired. She’s gone into the battlefield with bravery and courage. Never backing down even when the odds were against her, and coming through the other side with missions and stories that are astounding. She’s had amnesia and watched her loved ones, including Captain America, die but she’s always soldered on. Peggy’s stories inspired her niece to follow in her footsteps and join SHIELD. Peggy is not only a champion of the battlefield but also a stealer of hearts. (I’m cheesy, let me live.). She’s had a lifelong love with Captain America. It’s a fantastic and charming love story between them fueled by mutual respect, admiration, and honor.Throughout Peggy’s run in comics, she’s been known as Agent 13 and Mademoiselle. She’s also associated with SHIELD, Avengers Support Crew, OSS, Secret Empire and, of course, the French Resistance. Peggy’s an expert markswoman with proficiency in high powered weapons and has highly advanced combat training.If you’re thinking of reading anything about Peggy Carter, please read it all. However, if you need some help, let me get you started! To start from the beginning, you’ll want to start with Tales of Suspense #75, Captain America #162, Captain America #175, Captain America #184, Captain America #351, Captain America and The First Thirteen (2011), Original S.I.N (2015) and if you’re into Peggy Carter actually being Captain America (if you’re not, we can’t be friends), then may I introduce you to the best comic you’ll read Exiles!Peggy’s always been a force to be reckoned with. She’s also been a force in both television and film. The stunningly brilliant Hayley Atwell shook the world with her portrayal as the war hero in Captain America: The First Avenger. She can also be seen in The Winter Soldier, Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Civil War and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Hayley Atwell has also portrayed the character in the gone too soon series Agent Carter, where she plays the title character on some badass adventures during the post-war. Hayley has brought a light and brightness to the role that made Peggy Carter her. You can’t think of Hayley Atwell without thinking of Peggy Carter.Sadly, Peggy’s tragic death onscreen may not allow us to see her anymore. If she is, it may only be in flashbacks and specific scenes. Even though she has passed in the comics, Exiles has brought her back in a suit we all know and love. Peggy Carter has lived a life above and beyond what the call of duty stands for. She’s been a loyal soldier, fierce friend, and overall badass. Happy Birthday Peggy Carter and R.I.P.

MCU News Captain Marvel Wraps Frank Grillo Teases More

first_img We just spent the past weekend watching Ant-Man and the Wasp, but there’s another movie on all our minds. Sure, Ant-Man and the Wasp was fun, charming and tied into the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in cool ways. (Not to mention ripping open at least one old wound.) But even if you really loved it, nobody’s pretending it’s the Marvel movie they were looking forward to the most between last May and the next. If it’s not Avengers 4, it’s most likely Captain Marvel. And there’s some good news on that front.Brie Larson shared a photo on her Instagram on Sunday letting everyone know that production has wrapped. All of Captain Marvel has been filmed. It’s really happening! And suddenly next February feels so close and still so far away at the same time. Until then, here’s the photo Larson shared. It’s a cool one. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. James Gunn Once Again Directing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’Dark Phoenix Trailer Released & More Marvel Movie News Stay on target Awww yeah. See, that was the point of the Instagram post in the first place. Grillo is understandably excited that he’s been made into an action figure. For a lot of actors who grew up playing with superhero toys, this is a serious dream come true. Especially when it looks as cool as that one. Imagine the Cap vs. Crossbones battles you could stage on your desk while you put off work. I mean, hypothetically. Not that I would ever do anything like that, of course. HEY HOW ABOUT THOSE HASHTAGS!They’re all pretty normal until you get to the last one. #aven……. He knows exactly what he’s doing. Crossbones hasn’t been in any Avengers movies. Not even Infinity War. Is it possible he comes back for Avengers 4? After most of the superheroes were wiped out, the remaining Avengers are going to need all the help they can get to get them back. If Crossbones survived The Snappening, maybe Captain America will convince him to help out. Or, since he’s a villain, maybe he thinks he can take advantage of the suddenly hero-starved world.Either way, we likely won’t know anything more until we actually see Avengers 4 in theaters May 3, 2019. They really are bringing the entire MCU together in this one, huh? This is going to make Infinity War look like Iron Man.Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy (Photo via 20th Century Fox)And even with all those superheroes the studio has to juggle, there may be more coming in the future. After Comcast made a higher offer to buy 20th Century Fox, Disney countered with a ridiculous $71.3 billion bid. That’s a ton of money, but Disney clearly thinks it’s worth it. Fox’s shareholders will vote later this month on whether to approve the sale. If that happens, both the X-Men and the Fantastic Four will all be the property of Marvel Studios. They’ll be able to join the MCU. As excited as the fans are for that to happen, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige swears he’s not thinking about that at this point.In an interview with the Los Angeles Daily News, Feige said he has no plans to bring either superhero group into the fold. Just yet, at least. “Not until we’re given the word. I have vague dreams and vague ideas. But right now, bringing to life the 10,000-plus characters that Marvel fully controls is what the gameplan is,” Feige said.Interestingly, the paper called Feige’s remarks “not entirely convincing.” Either they’re really reading into his answer, or he did something in the interview to indicate he’s at least thinking about what he’d like to do. It’s possible he’s not allowed to talk about it yet. After all, it’s not a done deal, and nobody at Disney can start talking like it is. Plus, he’s not wrong when he says earlier in the interview that he’s a busy guy. Even after Avengers 4 hits theaters, he’s not done. After that, there’s Spider-Man: Far From Home and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, plus all the movies we don’t know about yet.Even if the deal does go through, it might take a while for the X-Men to start showing up in the MCU. But even though there are no official plans yet, you know Feige’s at least thinking about it. Those vague wishes could become awfully specific if the deal becomes real later this month.Finally, though the next Marvel movie is a long way away, that won’t stop the fans from doing awesome things with the MCU. Someone over at FANDOM recreated the cover of the very first Avengers comic (you know the one) with he actors from the MCU. Its creation was based on something Kevin Feige said about the movie. That every character from the first Avengers cover is on the big screen. Finally, with Ant-Man and The Wasp joining the fight in the next movie, someone could make this. The Captain Marvel slate, no longer needed, signed by the cast and crew of the movie. These always look cool. It’s a reminder just how much collaboration a movie takes. Especially a big superhero production like this one. We also get a nice look at the movie’s logo, which will definitely induce cheers the first time we see it on the big screen. The calendar behind the image is cute too. I love the little drawing beneath it of Captain Marvel in a rocket ship being chased by, presumably, a Skrull. Is that a scene that happens in the movie? Given the character’s origin, it might. The special effects will probably look slightly better than that drawing, though. Only slightly, that thing’s a masterpiece as it is. It also looks like Larson was crossing off the days until she could return home, which is extremely relatable. Even if your job is making Marvel movies, after a while, everyone just wants to sleep in their own bed.The ’90s-set Captain Marvel is only seven months away. In that time, they’ll edit the thing and put in the final special effects. We can bet they’ll use every available minute of those next seven months to do it. Still, this news means we’re not that far away from seeing Carol Danvers, two-eyed Nick Fury and even Phil Coulson on the big screen. Maybe there’ll even be a trailer soon. Please?Elsewhere on Instagram, another Marvel actor is mercilessly teasing fans with hashtags. The most diabolical of teases. You’ll remember Frank Grillo from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. In both movies, he played Crossbones. Though he always looked cool, Crossbones was a minor villain, and the conflict appears to have moved beyond him. What with Thanos destroying half of the universe, you know. Now, Grillo may be hinting at a comeback. But first, let’s look at a cool toy! ‘Finally every character from [Avengers #1] is here on the big screen’ — @Kevfeige pic.twitter.com/H1PX2Wrtfu— FANDOM (@getFANDOM) July 5, 2018Yeah, that looks really cool. Especially the way The Wasp flies up from the bottom of the poster. It makes me wish they had been in the first Avengers. Or that Loki was still alive to be in Avengers 4. (Yes, I’m convinced that he is the one character who is all the way dead for good. I hope I’m wrong.) It’s also funny how the movie versions all have elements of their original costumes… except for Iron Man. He really was much chunkier back in those days. Also, Loki really needs to say “Bah!” more often. The entire MCU could do with more “Bahs.”Oh well, maybe I’ll be proven wrong, and Loki will somehow be not dead in Avengers 4. If only so they can recreate this awesome fan-poster. And make Loki say “Bah!” Is it 2019 yet?last_img read more

Geeksplainer SpiderGwen

On

first_img Sony Pictures CEO Says ‘Door Is Closed’ for Now on Spider-Man SplitMarvel Censors Criticism of America From Marvel Comics #1000 We love ourselves some Spiders here at Geek. The Marvel Universe plays with so many different ideas for the vast and ever-changing Spider-verse that it’s become an epic lineup of its own. With Spider-Man (Peter Parker) leading the pack, spiders like Silk (Cindy Moon), Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew), Spider-Man (Miles Morales) and others (Spider-Ham) aren’t too far behind. However, if there’s one Spider we HAVE to talk about (and who may be the best of all, don’t @ me) that stands in an alternative universe, we have to look at the one and only Gwen Stacy aka Spider-Gwen.Before, she was the first love of Peter Parker’s life, with a tragic death in Amazing Spider-Man #121 (1973) that seemed to push his character into the main he is today. There wasn’t a lot to be known about Gwen Stacy in her regular verse since she was a very low-key yet important part of Peter’s life. Now, Gwen Stacy can’t stay dead for very long. She’s one fascinating character to play around with and talk about because she’s everything that is the opposite of Parker. Today, we’ll be looking a little more into one of our favorite spiders with a limited history behind her. Let’s dive in with some Spider-Gwen 101.Gwen Stacy weaved her way into the comics with the help of Dan Slott but executed by the brilliant masterminds writer Jason Latour and artist Robbie Rodriguez. Marvel’s Spider-Man editor Nick Lowe brought in Latour and Rodriguez on to create this insanely cool world for her. Stacy’s first appearance happened in Edge of Spider-Verse #2. In this, we move to Earth-65, where instead of Peter Parker getting bitten by the radioactive spider, Gwen takes that bite like a champion. She then beings the journey of the Spider-Woman. She tries to balance out her powers while protecting her normal life in the best way she knows how.For Earth-65, think of Earth-616 and flip it upside down. In this timeline, Gwen is a drummer with the band The Mary Janes, lead by Mary Jane Watson. Gwen’s dad Captain Stacy is a bit over an overbearing father as well as being the police captain. Peter’s journey in this alternative universe is very different. Peter and Gwen are friends, but he finds himself getting bullied at school. He doesn’t want to feel that hopeless anymore, so he transforms himself into The Lizard. The Lizard becomes one of Spider-Woman’s first casualties and like all things never meant to be, he dies. You think this is a lot? This is just the beginning of what happens to our favorite girl.After Edge of Spider-Verse’s success with this new reincarnation of Gwen as Spider-Woman, her stories and popularity soured into the mainstream of the Spider-Verse. In fact, after the events of Edge, she becomes an important and recurring part in the Spider-Verse storylines. She receives a Spider-Totem that’s able to cross and travel into other Spider-worlds. Gwen would be back in her universe soon enough and nuzzled in her own series with Latour and Rodriguez, taking that origin journey and spinning it into gold. Spider-Gwen’s run would have her fighting classic Spider-villains like Vulture. It would have her up against alternative versions of our favorite characters such as Cheif Frank Castle and Matt Murdock (Kingpin). She’s also been infused and served time being Venom-fied in her run as well.Of course, with great storylines, comes great powers and personality. Gwen’s so different from her original character portrayal that this brand over Gwen completely overthrows what she was before. (Never forget though.) One thing I forever admire about Gwen in Latour and Rodriguez’s run is how vulnerable she is. She’s a gritty version of her former self. Gwen is sarcastic and bold, which makes her prime uncharted and extremely exciting territory to create from.However, Gwen, at the point of her conception, was still learning and figuring her shit out. Gwen’s no doubt has made a TONS of mistakes. She picks herself back up and learns from them the best way she knows how. She takes after the many incarnations of the Spiders we’ve come to know and love in that regard. Sure, this may come at the cost of always becoming unmasked every once in a while, but Gwen stands to be a trooper. She makes a notable appearance in whatever Earth-U she’s apart of. Also, Gwen’s a music nerd and struck up an adorable romance with Miles Morales. A girl after my own heart.Her powers mirror that of Peter Parker but with some things that are uniquely different. She’s supplied with unlimited shooters formed by the moisture in the air gifted to her by Janet Van Dyne. She also isn’t a highly skilled fighter, leaning most of what she knows from Kung-Fu movies as everyone should. Gwen also has a great handle on being agile and using her body to her advantage. She’s also skilled at problem-solving that varies from her dad being a detective.There are so many comics that have come out in the past few years that chronicle the life and times of Spider-Gwen. Latour and Rodriguez have wholly given her so much uncharted territory that it’s hard to stop once you start. If you’re looking to get into Spider-Gwen, here are some comics that come highly recommended to give you the boost into her world.No doubt you have to read her debut into the world with Edge of Spider-Verse #2. After Edge of Spider-Verse, head into the broader world of Spider-Gwen Vol. 1: Greater Power. Sadly, the ending of Spider-Gwen has already come, but what better time to start binging the whole series. You’ll also want to pick up Spider-Women where Spider-Gwen teams up with Silk and Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew) and Spider-Man/Spider-Gwen: Sitting In A Tree, because you want to read the cutest romance in the world right? That’s what I thought.Spider-Gwen is a highlight within gameplay for Marvel Heroes as a team up, and later, playable character in the game voiced by Ashley Johnson. She also appears in other games like Avengers Alliance, Marvel Future Fight and Contest of Champions. In animation, she’s seen in the Ultimate Spider-Man VS. The Sinister 6 show voiced Dove Cameron. Cameron also returns to voice Gwen in the upcoming film Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, starring Captain Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Inferno, Patriot and America Chavez. You can catch it on Disney XD on Sunday, September 30th at 10 pm. You can see Gwen on the bigger this holiday season alongside Miles Morales and Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The equally adorable Hailee Steinfeld will voice the character as she swings into that Spider-Verse this holiday season, December 14th.Since her incarnation, Stacy has come into her own with a resurrection that only a Marvel character could dream of in this comic age. She’s gained such a badass reputation that keeps her in the running of being one of the best Marvel creations. She keeps inspiring with her biting humor, learned movie Kung-Fu and agility that puts every other Spider to shame. So, now you know all about Spider-Gwen! You guys better get started reading those books before December 14th.See our complete review of the new Spidey game. Catch all the tips and tricks too. Read up on the fab Silk aka Cindy Moon.

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide King K Rool

On

first_img King K. Rool Comes Aboard!Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighter: King K. Rool. ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President‘Undertale’s’ Sans Is Basically a Brand New ‘Sma… Who Are They?When Donkey Kong went from being Mario’s bad guy to the star of his own SNES series Donkey Kong Country, the amazing ape needed a villain of his own. So they went the Mario route and pitted DK against an evil reptile king: the head Kremling King K. Rool. With his bulging bloodshots eyes and smooth golden metal crocodile belly only a mid-90s PC could render, K. Rool straddles the perfect Rare design aesthetic of cartoon cute and computer creepy.Smash HistoryK. Rool showed up as trophies and stickers in past Smash Bros. games. But that was never enough for his surprisingly passionate fan base. I love Donkey Kong lore, but the fact that so many people demanded him Smash Wii U/3DS added K. Rool Mii outfits as a consolation really surprised me. After that though, it didn’t surprise me at all when King K. Rool finally became playable as one of Smash Ultimate’s fan-favorite newcomers, despite how strange that really is.What Looks New in Ultimate?After finally getting some hands-on time with him, it’s nasty how good people can be with K. Rool despite how gross and dumb of a character he is. His jetpack recovery lets him easily escape like a true coward. The multiple different uses of his blunderbuss, shooting a cannonball or sucking something in, makes it very tricky to deal with. And his bloated stomach counter, the thing fetish art lives for, is also super useful for a character who is already very powerful.Our Hopes?King K. Rool in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is already infinitely cooler than the character has ever been. When he runs on all fours while that bop of a “Gangplank Galleon” remix plays it’s just awesome. And it’s even more hype when you realize he’s a promising character. We just hope this doesn’t convince Nintendo that K. Rool needs to start appearing in Donkey Kong games again.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases Dec. 7 for Nintendo Switch. Until we can play more for ourselves, changes we talk about here are mostly speculation. For more thoughts check out our Smash hands-on as well as cool Switch games to play that aren’t Smash Bros., because those definitely exist.View as: One Page Slides1/761. Read Mario’s Guide2.

He continued to provide updates ever since and it didn’t appear both sides would agree on a new deal.His general displeasure with WWE and his current position with the company became public back in April when he told Myles Galloway in an interview that his last three WrestleMania appearances “not been great” and was upset about being part of the Kickoff show in Dallas.Ryback appeared on the fourth season of “Tough Enough” that was part of Smackdown and later was signed to a developmental deal with WWE working in Deep South Wrestling. He would later emerge in Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling until he was brought up in 2010 as part of the first season of WWE NXT on Syfy. After a run with the Nexus group, he would officially re-debut under the Ryback name in 2012 which included a high profile feud with CM Punk that year for the WWE Championship. Ryback had a run as Intercontinental Champion in 2015 and his last high profile feud was with Kalisto over the United States Championship in 2016.You can check out his entire video message below.
