An FDA agent solves crimes by receiving psychic impressions from ingesting flesh, including from humans. Sounds like a bad horror movie, right? Instead, it's a fantastic, unique and innovative comic series full of as much humor as it is with weird, creepy cannibalism.

CHEW is written by John Layman and illustrated by Rob Guillory, and has gone for over 40 issues so far, and the trade paperbacks have landed on the New York Times Bestseller charts and won two Eisner Awards.

Now, the popular series is getting the animated treatment for a feature mini-series to be released digitally and on DVD. And even cooler than the feature itself is who's starring in it doing the voice acting: Steven Yeun and Felicia Day!

Steven Yeun, who plays Glenn on AMC's The Walking Dead, is no stranger to voice acting, having worked on The Legend of Korra as Wan. It's an interesting choice considering he's on a show about flesh-eating zombies and now he's voicing the FDA agent, Tony Chu, who eats flesh.

Felicia Day, who has appeared on various shows like Eureka, Supernatural and her own web show, The Guild, will voice Amelia Mintz, the other lead character in the series.

Layman wrote the script for the CHEW anmiated feature mini-series, which will be directed by Jeff Krelitz (Peter Panzerfaust, Torchwood: Web of Lies). Voiceover work has already begun. No word on a release date yet.

Final X-Men: Days of Future Past Trailer

8:00 AM, Wednesday, April 16th, 2014 - Posted by Brant Fowler

X-Men: Days of Future Past has had a slow build since we first started hearing about it. The first trailer was very solemn and, in my opinion, poorly cut. It didn't give much to go on or much to cling on to.

Following that, though, we got the ingenius viral website for the film, which had all these cool things to tie into the story of the film. It was a really clever addition and subtly kept the interest going.

Then the second trailer was released, and finally we saw the excitement of the film.

Now, with just over a month from the release date, we get the final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, which gives us new footage, including our first real look at Quicksilver. Personally, after these last two trailers, I am finally amped up to see this film. Check out the new trailer below and let us know in the comments or on Facebook what you think.

Agent Maria Hill Returns to Agents of SHIELD

5:00 PM, Thursday, April 10th, 2014 - Posted by John Wilson

Cobie Smulders is to reprise her role as Maria Hill in Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.

It has been confirmed that the 32-year-old actress, who appeared in the pilot of the sci-fi series, will star in episode 20 of the first season, 'Nothing Personal', airing in the US on April 29.

According to TVLine, Smulders' character will team up with Agent Coulson.

The former How I Met Your Mother actress has starred as Maria Hill in both The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Meanwhile, although the ABC series is yet to be officially renewed, executive producer Jeph Loeb has said that he is hoping for "100 more" episodes.

Co-exec Jeff Bell has also confirmed that the events of movie The Winter Soldier will continue to impact the TV series.

Maria Hill is a tough as nails but has a tender heart type character in the comics and Cobie Smulders definately had tough in spades in her appearances in the Marvel world so far, I hope that we get to see the heart of gold part of the character as she goes on.

Captain America The Winter Soldier Sets New April Opening Record

12:00 PM, Monday, April 7th, 2014 - Posted by John Wilson

The strong March box office showed a lot of potential for another big blockbuster in April, and sure enough, with Marvel Studios offering their first April release, the sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier proceeded to set a new April opening record for the month, besting the previous opening record held by 2011's Fast Five. Opening in 3,938 North American theaters, the sequel, starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan and Robert Redford, took in $37 million on Friday (including $10.2 million in Thursday previews), dropped a bit on Saturday to $34.6 million and is estimated to make $24.5 million on Sunday for a first three-day total of $96.2 million. Besides setting a new April opening record, that's the fifth-highest opening for a Marvel Studios movie and seventh-biggest opening for a movie based on a Marvel Comics character.

On top of that, "The Winter Soldier" has grossed $303 million worldwide in just ten days, having already surpassed the previous movie's international gross with over $200 million overseas. $9.6 million of Cap's opening weekend take was delivered from 346 domestic IMAX screens, which made up 16 of the top 20 locations, with another $6.5 million grossed on 278 international IMAX screens for a $19.4 million global IMAX total so far.

Why I haven't personally seen it yet, nothing but positive accounts have come from all my comic friends who have seen it, including the account that it is "better than the first". Marvel continues to set the bar very high, so I hope that it lives up to expectations.
