The best for last? I’m not sure you can say that since these posters are pretty much all the same, but I must admit, Marvel Studios has certainly laid out an interesting way to release all these various images. Once again, a new character poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron has been released today, and once again it came from the Twitter feed of the cast member in question. I’m not sure if Captain America has a Twitter account, but actor Chris Evans certainly does and he merrily posted the lastest image from the movie in his feed today. So how concerned does Captain America look about the Ultron invasion? Let’s take a look. (more…)

This week’s episode of Marvel’s Agent Carter finds Peggy facing the heat from the SSR inside their interrogation room. They want all the details on her involvement with Howard Stark, the Russians, Leviathan, and the murder of Agent Krasminski. Of course what they get are more questions than answers – it’ll take more than a few harsh words from Sousa and Thompson to crack this Howling Commando.  What the SSR doesn’t realize that is that Dr. Ivchenko is the pulling the strings with Captain Dooley and his ‘Black Widow’ operative Dottie, and is about the burn the SSR house down from the inside out!

Captain America: The First Avenger

We all know how far people will go when it comes to making sure their Cosplay outfits are up to scratch. With a myriad conventions becoming worldwide institutions and attracting bigger crowds every year such as San Diego Comic Con, the photographs of some of these outfits are sublime. Moreover, in recent years there have been outfits that have been the result of much blood, sweat and tears, such as the vast array of superhero outfits like Xenomorphs, Predators, Mech Suits and Iron Man replicas that provide us all with something to marvel at (did you see what I did there?). As it stands, most people know just how far to take it but there are always a minority of individuals’ out there that like to take things that little bit further, toying with the translucent lines of societal norms. Which brings us to this absolutely insane Redskull cosplay (more…)

Chris and Chris

Alright, Marvel, you already have our money – now, two of your biggest stars have stolen our hearts with their off-screen “rivalry”.  In case you haven’t been paying attention to the Twitterverse, a couple of weeks back, Captain America and Star-Lord (or, Chris Evans and Chris Pratt, if your prefer those monikers) decided to bet on the Big Game.  Now, the final pass has been thrown (and caught, albeit by the other team), and it is time to settle on that bet and, of course, the Two Chrises (I see a reality show in their somewhere) have decided to settle the bet in the best way possible.

The backbone of any successful movie franchise is composed of great writers. Without a decent script to play with, the directors and producers have nothing to turn into cinematic gold (or a giant pile of crap…). Two names that are quickly becoming important in the Marvel camp are the writers of the first Captain America flick, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. In addition to The First Avenger, Markus and McFeely also penned the scripts for The Winter Soldier, Thor 2 and are currently involved in both a writing and production capacity for the new Agent Carter show. Despite all that (and working on the third Captain America movie), McFeely managed to take some time out to talk about all-things Marvel. Scroll on to hear what he had to say about Civil War and the changes it may or may not bring to Marvel’s universe. (more…)

We all know that some of the worst movie spoilers end up coming from the very toys that movie ‘s producers are hoping will sell like crazy. This time around, while we are seeing the new and improved Avengers Age of Utron uniforms, there’s nothing that we haven’t seen in the trailer. It’s just a much closer look.

Hot Toys recently revealed its incredible new line of Avengers: Age of Ultron figures at the Toy Soul Convention in Hong Kong. These toys might set you back a pretty penny, but the detail is beyond incredible verging on incredi-balls. Yes, I went there, you might not agree, but once you’ve laid your eyes on these your collector’s soul is going to start beating very fast. (more…)

ruffalo-hulk

After Mark Ruffalo‘s superb performance playing the Hulk in Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers (2012), his incarnation as the green-monster-with-anger-issues became a fan favorite; leading to the ultimate question “When will Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) be getting his own film.” Thusly, when Marvel Studios started rolling out Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor standalone movies, the Hulks absence from Marvel‘s release schedules became more apparent. Mark Ruffalo has appeased fans slightly by promising that the Hulk has a much bigger role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but will this suffice? It actually turns out there is a reason the Hulk has not been included in Marvel’s scheduling for a solo outing in the Cinematic Universe, and although you may be disappointed at first, it’s actually a really cool reason. We will leave you to judge for yourselves. (more…)

Will Marvel introduce their new Dr Strange, a.k.a Benedict Cumberbatch, in a post-credit Easter-egg role in a similar vein to the epic post-credit scene in Captain America: Winter Soldier? Now that  Benedict Cumberbatch has officially signed on to play the role of Doctor Strange, the latest rumors surrounding January’s pickup shots for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron, is that those shots will include a cameo of Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange.
