What is a Retcon?

Retcon means Retroactive Continuity.

A retcon is the alteration of facts or history stated in a piece of fiction. It can either be additional information or even an extreme change of information. Retcons commonly happen in comic books due the long history of characters especially those of mainstream brands. Retcons also happen on fictional materials that are episodic in nature, like Television shows, film sequels, video games, and even novels that are part of a series. In the case of comic books, issues are what we call the episodes.

Why Retcon? And… what’s with the Double N?

Well, retcons happen very frequently lately especially now that some comic brands rewrote the history of their universe after a major crossover event. Take for example DC, who solved most of their continuity issues with their latest effort called, Infinite Crisis. Also, most people don’t really know what’s going on with comic books right now, so everything they thought they knew about their favorite comic book character is now a retcon. Retcons can be good or bad but it really depends on the reader. We at Monthly Retconn neither support or dislike retcons. We just think that they are some things we can look back to and talk about it. The other N? oh, that’s just for kicks. You got a problem with that?

The Prestige Trailer Now Online!
posted by Monthly Retconn

The Presige Trailer Now Online!
Watch it here!


Can't wait for the Batman sequel? Christopher Nolan takes a break from the Dark Knight to make "The Prestige". The film has a great cast including the best comic book movie stars known today. The cast includes the Batman, Christian Bale, our favorite hot-tempered Wolverine, Hugh Jackman and most of all, Bruce Wayne's Loyal servant Alfred, Michael Caine. The film also stars the Top 1 "Best Breast" actress in Hollywood, Scarlett Johansson.

The trailer shows how magic can turn good friends into the greatest of rivals. Hugh Jackman takes the role of the best magician in town until his friend Christian Bale, kind of challenges him to achieving the greatest magic trick ever done. Unluckily for mister Logan, Batman succeeds in performing the most astounding magic trick ever done. Hugh Jackman's character becomes obssessed on finding out how Christian Bale did it but Michael Caine, who seems to be Hugh's counselor, believes Christian uses REAL magic. That means no tricks, but true mysticism. And that seems to be the central point of the film, Bale's true identity.

The trailer looks good so far and is very intruiging considering that fans may not care about it at all since they want their Batman as soon as possible. From the looks of it, the characters seem to look great and we'll get to see Christian Bale as some kind of villain. The performances so far are awesome and inspiring especially Hugh Jackman. The problem is that you can't help but look at Bale as Batman. However, he quite fits the part quite nicely.


The cinematography is wildly clean and wonderful. The music, effects and the sets are truly believable that you'll totally feel like you're in the times when magic tricks were the greatest form of entertainment then.

There's no definite release date yet, but it's coming this year around Fall. Expect it around from August to November, I guess. As for me, I have high hopes for this film as Nolan did a great job with Batman. Let's hope he brings magic to the silverscreen with this one too.
