The Bendis Tapes Part 1 A Hard Days Moon Knight
Download The MP3 Here On the opening salvo to this season’s Bendis Tapes, we start with a closer look at the new Moon Knight series beginning in May. After a mixed reaction to last week's Marvel press conference, Bendis addresses the initial concerns old time Marc Spector fans have, with the idea that his 3 multiple personalities have doubled to include Steve Rogers, Spider-Man and Wolverine. We talk about Takio the all ages graphic novel from Brian and his Powers co-collaborator Mike Oeming On the Marvel movie front, Bendis gives a non detail disclosing thumbs up to the Thor film, and more importantly describes the environment of the meetings with Thor director Kenneth Branaugh. You’ll also hear behind the scenes details of the last Marvel retreat, which was the first led by new Editor-In-Chief, Axel Alonso. We also get updates on the many TV projects Bendis has in the works. You’ll hear about Powers at FX, AKA Jessica Jones at ABC, and Ultimate Spider-Man at Disney XD. Finally, we begin to answer question posted at Brian’s Jinxworld message board, which cover big picture topics like the various ways Brian thinks social media has improved the comics fandom -creator relationship.
