Jessica Jones Season 3 Villain: Who is Gregory Sallinger

Gavin Jasper Jun 14, 2019

Jessica Jones Season 3 puts our hard-drinking hero up against a disturbed new villain, and Gregory Sallinger has roots in Marvel Comics.

The release of Jessica Jones Season 3 is pretty monumental because this is the end of the line for the long-running Netflix/Marvel relationship. When you add it all up, it’s the 13th season of The Defenders corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and between that and the actual movie part of the McU trying to get ready for the likes of the Eternals and Shang-Chi, well, we’re a long way from the A-list Marvel characters. For her final season, Jessica Jones’ big villain is Jeremy Bobb (Russian Doll) playing Gregory Salinger, who appears to be a garden-variety serial killer, but who Marvel fans will recognize as Foolkiller.

Foolkiller was never in any Marvel cartoon. I’m fairly certain he has never made a video game appearance.

James Gunn’s Final Guardians Of The Galaxy Easter Egg May’ve Been Revealed

Almost half a decade on, the first Guardians of the Galaxy continues to draw the scrutiny of the internet, as fans seek to discover the last remaining Easter Egg. And in a new piece from Giant Box of Comics, the case is made that director James Gunn may have hidden a key Marvel character right before our eyes.

You might recall the post-credits scene of the 2014 flick, which introduces us to Howard the Duck. This cigar-smoking fowl first made his comic book debut in a 1973 issue of Adventure into Fear, a horror series that served as a vehicle for the swamp monster named Man-Thing.

With that in mind, you may want to pause the below video around the 3-second mark. On the left of the shot, as part of Taneleer Tivan’s collection, you’ll notice a plant-like design that Giant Box of Comics has argued bears a resemblance to the Man-Thing himself.

Goosebumps Author R.L. Stein Will Write Four Supernatural Graphic Novels For Boom! Studios

The creator of GoosebumpsR.L. Stein, is jumping into comics again, this time with Boom! Studios. He recently wrote a five-issue Man-Thing miniseries for Marvel Comics that turned out great! So, it's awesome to hear that we've got more comics coming from him. 

According to Publishers Weekly, Stine signed a world rights deal with the comic publisher, in which Stein will write four graphic novels under Boom!'s KaBoom! imprint. Those projects are described as a supernatural middle-grade series. The first of these horror comics will be released in the fall of 2019.

Unfortunately, we don't have any details on the stories that these graphic novels will tell, but as a fan of Stein and his work, I'm looking forward to seeing what he ends up creating.

Marvel Studios Horror Movies

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said the Disney-owned, billion dollar 'Marvel Cinematic Universe' may branch off into a 'horror movie' genre division, that could include vampire hunter "Blade", the swamp creature "Man-Thing", as well as a huge catalogue of Marvel horror titles and characters that stretch back to the 1950's:

"'Horror' can mean a lot of things," said Feige.

"Did you mean a movie like 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'...

"...or 'Hostel' or a 'Friday the 13th' or a 'Poltergeist'?

"'Poltergeist' is a little bit more my wheelhouse.

"That's such a great movie and it scared the heck out of me...

"...but it’s really fun."

Marvel Boss Teases Possible McU Horror Movies

Over the weekend, Marvel assembled those who helped bring Avengers: Infinity War to life to promote the upcoming superhero blockbuster, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige offering a hint at what's to come in Marvel Phase 4 and beyond, including movies set within the horror genre. While all of the McU movies have centered around Marvel Comics characters, the stories themselves are often rooted in much different genres, with Feige revealing in a new interview that he would like to examine the horror genre. Here's what he had to say, when asked about the possibility of a Marvel Cinematic Universe horror movie, especially now that Marvel has got the rights back to characters like Blade and Man-Thing.

"I like both of those characters that you named, and I think, again, horror can mean a lot of things. Horror, did you mean a movie like Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Hostel or a

A Marvel Cinematic Universe horror movie is “possible” says Kevin Feige

Kevin Feige hasn’t ruled out the possibility of making Marvel Cinematic Universe horror movies.

The McU has an incredible array of stories and characters in its collection at this point, and some of the films have certainly started to offer new and interesting vibes to keep the winning formula fresh.

One thing we haven’t seen from the franchise, however, is a film in the horror genre. With recent horror hits such as A Quiet Place, Get Out, and It, catching people’s attention at the box office, what are the chances that the McU looks into adding to the genre?

Well, according to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, when speaking to ComicBook.com, an McU horror movie isn’t impossible. Referencing the Marvel characters at their disposal such as Blade and Man-Thing, Feige said:

“I like both of those characters that you named, and I think, again, horror

Kevin Feige Says Playing with the Horror Genre in The Marvel Movies is Possible

Marvel Studios has done a great job so far with their films and we've seen them play with several different kinds of genres over the years. But one genre they haven't really played with yet is the horror genre. We know that Josh Boone is doing that with his New Mutants movie, but will Marvel Studios one day decide to dive into that genre and try something new with it?

While talking to Cb, Kevin Feige says that it's certainly a possibility! When asked if the studio would eventually give it a try with characters like Blade and Man-Thing, he said:

"I like both of those characters that you named, and I think, again, horror can mean a lot of things. Horror, did you mean a movie like Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Hostel or a Friday the 13th or a PoltergeistPoltergeist is a little bit more my wheelhouse, that's

Thor: Ragnarok VFX Lead Wants Beta Ray Bill In The McU

The (Norse) mythology surrounding Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder has been explored a lot over the trilogy of Thor movies we’ve seen so far. One of the most important players conspicuous by their absence, though, is Beta Ray Bill, a fan favourite ally of the Asgardian’s from the comics. That’s unfortunate, too, as audiences would love to see the character on the big screen and, as it turns out, so would at least one important figure behind the scenes of the McU.

While talking with CinemaBlend, Thor: Ragnarok‘s VFX lead Jake Morrison expressed a desire to have Beta Ray Bill brought into the franchise in the future. As a horse-faced alien, the character would likely be created via CGI and Morrison would love to get a chance to work on him. In particular, he’d like to recreate a classic comic book moment.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 Review

There’s one important element that Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 nails with perfection: the tried-and-true Lego experience. Objects explode in brilliant fashion, players gather studs with reckless abandon, and minifigures unlock with enough frequency to completely wear out that dopamine receptor in your brain. Of course, the latest chaotic installment of the Lego Marvel series doesn’t deviate too far from the previously established formula, which means it probably won’t draw new gamers into the fold. Still, it checks all the right boxes and hits most of the necessary marks, giving fans exactly what they crave. That said, don’t expect anything too different from what you’ve played before.

During the game’s opening sequence, which features the Guardians of the Galaxy battling an intergalactic villain known as Kang (who travels around in an enormous sword-shaped spacecraft), I kicked things off with my usual Lego ritual: destroying as

Biggest Thor: Ragnarok Easter Egg Revealed

Biggest Thor: Ragnarok Easter Egg Revealed
Will you be on the hunt for Easter eggs when it comes to watching Thor: Ragnarok on the big screen this November? Well, then, you better keep your eyes open during every single minute of the movie, cause there will be a lot. Right down to an actual Easter egg planted by director Taika Waititi, which is a fun wink and nod to the concept itself. But the real meat here is that Thor 3 finally confirms the presence of fan-favorite characters Beta Ray Bill and Man-Thing, along with a few fun others. Though, they're never actually seen on screen.

According to Marvel big boss Kevin Feige, this particular Easter egg is the biggest one Thor: Ragnarok has to offer. And it's pretty cool. The Easter egg in question is actually revealed in the trailers and TV spots, so you don't have to go looking high and low for it either.

'The Punisher': Everything You Need to Know About Marvel's Vigilante Antihero

'The Punisher': Everything You Need to Know About Marvel's Vigilante Antihero
Black clothes. White skull. Smoking guns. These are the gloriously simple ingredients behind the Punisher, the no-holds-barred antihero who'll soon be starring in one of the fall's most anticipated series. As played by The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal during the second season of Netflix's Daredevil, the gun-toting vigilante stole every scene he was in, making the network's relentless campaign of teases and trailers damn near irresistible. But like every major superhero, he's taken a long strange trip from his comic-book origins to his modern-day multimedia superstardom. Below, you'll find

Man-Thing #2 Review

Man-Thing #2 Gallery 1 of 7

More From The Web Click to zoom

Man-Thing #1, the comic book debut of Goosebumps author R.L. Stine, proved to be a one of a kind book for Marvel. Much less interested in fitting in with the house style, it was largely a homage to the horror comics of decades gone by. This second issue follows on in much the same spirit, with all Stine’s usual black humour and love of pulpy horror. Somehow, though, it ends up being even weirder than the opening issue.

After coming face to face with himself on the streets of Burbank, Man-Thing is teleported away back to his swamp in the Everglades. But with vulture, bat and snake attacks coming from all around, and a reunion with his lost love Lily-Ann Millard, something is very amiss. Could it be that the whole of reality is threatened and that

Goosebumps Author R.L. Stine Takes on Marvel's Man-Thing Comic

Goosebumps Author R.L. Stine Takes on Marvel's Man-Thing Comic
It may be hard for many to believe, but even after writing hundreds of books over the course of several decades, R.L. Stine has never written a comic book. Until now, that is. For the last month or so, the 73-year-old Goosebumps author has been teasing fans that his first ever comic book is coming and that it will be for Marvel. Now it has been confirmed that he will be writing a brand new, five-issue Man-Thing series.

New York Times got the confirmation about the new Man-Thing series, which will be available in March of next year. R.L. Stine talked with them a bit about his first comic book, saying that he originally wanted to get into comics as an artist before becoming a writer, and that this is something of a realized dream for him. Here is what he had to say about it.

R.L. Stine’s Marvel Project Revealed to be Man-thing Comic Book Series

  • DailyDead
Fear Street and Goosebumps author R.L. Stine is stepping outside of Shadyside and into the swamp to bring fear to the pages of Marvel Comics in a new Man-Thing comic book series.

Initially mentioned this past Halloween as a secretive project for Marvel, The New York Times and EW reported today that Stine's Man-Thing comic book series will consist of five issues and feature artwork by German Peralta and other talented artists.

According to Marvel (via EW), the new Man-Thing series will follow the titular monster as he goes up against “an ancient and mysterious danger” while outside the familiar confines of his swamp.

Regarding the tone of the series, Stine told The New York Times what readers can expect from his take on the creature that was created by Stan Lee, Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway, and Gray Morrow back in 1971:

Michael Davis From The Edge: All You Need Is Love

My mom died thinking she threw away a copy of Superman number one from 1938.

Yes, I do indeed realize just how lame that must sound, and it would be if I gave a flying fish about that book with regards to my mother. I don’t but it’s important to the story I’m trying to write and just so I’m crystal clear, I’d happily burn the last copy left on Earth to spend just a minute more with my mother.

It was Superman number two she tossed out, and you can read the whole story entitled A Comic Book Tale on ComicMix.

I told her it was number one while trying to make the point that she should never throw out another comic book of mine, ever, and she never did. I have been keeping that my secret weapon for when I needed a real ‘gotcha’ to use on my mom.

'Daredevil' bosses: getting Punisher & Elektra 'a pretty big Christmas morning'

  • Hitfix
Usually, when a TV show is on its third set of showrunners before its second season has begun, it's the sign of major creative trouble. With Netflix's Daredevil — which almost everyone (myself included) really liked last year — it's been a sign that the previous showrunners were too in-demand to stick around for very long. Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods, The Martian) started out as the man in charge, but left early in the first season to work on the (since-canceled) Spider-Man spin-off movie The Sinister Six. Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight came in to steer the ship for the rest of season 1, but didn't want to stick around long term, given other opportunities (one of which turned out to be directing Pacific Rim 2). So now Daredevil has turned to a pair of writers who worked on the first season — Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, American Horror Story) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy,

13 Ways In Which Movies Break The Fourth Wall

Back in July 2014, some helpful individual leaked the first Deadpool test footage online. Everybody was highly offended and indignant about this flagrant violation of the film world’s integrity – which of course meant that everyone watched it immediately, and Deadpool’s path to superstardom began.

At Comic-Con this year, Ryan Reynolds (who plays the wise-cracking, psychotic mercenary) was able to take advantage of the footage-leak situation in order to give an, er, “appropriately worded shout-out” to whoever the culprit was, before taking pity on the fans and playing the first full-length trailer, twice. There was absolutely no doubt that, what all these events combined, the star of Comic-Con this year was Deadpool.
