Jackson picked up the ball today and tweeted out three new Character posters, Nick Fury, Thor, and the Black Widow. All this is leading to something in a few days, what could it be? (more…)

We’ve seen a couple of Alex Luther‘s fan made videos and teaser trailers before. The Marvel Vs. DC Epic Trailer was pretty damn good. This time around he’s pitting Earth’s Mightiest Heroes combined against the incredible power of the Dark Side. That’s right, Emperor Palpatine and his Sith Apprentice Darth Vader are bringing all their powers to bear on Earth. Who can save us? Certainly not some scruffy Nerf Herder like Han Solo. This is a job for the likes of Superman, Iron Man, Batman, Thor, The Green Lantern Corps, and Star Lord. Wait… who the hell is Star Lord? (more…)

As we all know, there are fan films, and then there are FAN FILMS that blow us away. The problem is sifting through all the drak to find that one gem. Today you don’t have to wade through anything, just click and watch the video below. (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…)

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…)

CumberStrange

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.

Marvel has officially announced the casting of German actor Daniel Bruhl for an unspecified role in Captain America: Civil War. The actor – who is probably best known for his ambiguously endearing-but-nasty role as Frederick Zoller in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds – joins a cast that already boasts three superheroes. Captain America: Civil War has an impressive line-up, including Chris Evans’ Cap. America, Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man, newcomer Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier. Unfortunately there is still no word on Frank Grillo’s involvement in the film as Crossbones. (more…)

When it was announced that the third Thor movie, which will be in a theater near you in the summer of 2017, was going to be subtitled Ragnarok, there were a lot of questions about the full meaning of the word in the context of the Thunder God’s next solo adventure. “Ragnarok” literally means “the final destiny of the gods,” which can be taken any number of ways, but that word “final” has some very specific implications. So we’re forced to wonder, is Ragnarok going to be a blood bath? Will it be, in effect, the final Thor solo adventure? We can’t answer that last question, but one of the co-writer’s is definitely pointing to an affirmative on that first question. (more…)

Not sure when this happened, but apparently Thor has a sister. And its Angela. You may know Angela as a Spawn character created by Neil Gaiman, and was one of a number of characters subject to a legal dispute between Gaiman and Spawn creator Todd MacFarlane. Emerging out of legal limbo, Gaiman passed control of Angela’s future to Marvel Comics (along with his stake in Miracleman) and the powerful redhead was quickly integrated into the cosmology of the Marvel U. In Asgard. As Thor’s secret sister. Coming out the recent gender reassignment of Thor in her new eponymously titled comic, her sister is also getting her own book called, Angela: Asgard’s Assassin #1. Some details and artwork follow.
