Avengers Infinity War: Day One Documentary.


ne2lg0p3c84v53_1_b

To the closer followers of Marvel, and the mechanics behind their super hero films, Christmas came early last night when Marvel released a short “documentary” about Avengers Infinity War.  The video is quite informative, and gives the laymen some news they will be excited about, and the comic book connoisseur some things to be excited about.  (Why doesn’t Thor have his Hammer, and are Tony’s new suits automated, or is building them for himself.)  Regardless of how deep movie goers get into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the video below provides a very interesting look into the 3rd Avengers installment.

Marvel vs. Capcom IS BACK.


screen-shot-2016-12-03-at-12-24-19-pm

Earlier this afternoon, at the Playstation Experience, Marvel Entertainment & Capcom officially announced the long-awaited fourth chapter in their long-running Marvel vs. Capcom fighting game series, titled Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.  The ‘Marvel vs. Capcom’ series has led to MANY a dorm room scuffle in my day, but I’m glad that 10 years after the last outting, the franchise has returned.

The game is still in development at the moment, but it is expected to be available worldwide on the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC late 2017. Details on the lineup of playable characters and storyline weren’t provided, but the brief teaser provides a look at Captain Marvel & Iron Man facing off with Ryu and Mega Man X. We also catch a look at a mysterious figure – that looks a lot like Ultron – sitting in the dark.

What Happens When You Give Dr. Doom An Ironman Suit?


im-vs-dd-1600

Love or hate the direction Marvel are taking their comics in, there’s no denying that the idea of Victor Von Doom suiting up as the new Iron Man is at least somewhat intriguing. The fate of Tony Stark following the events of Civil War II remains a mystery, but with Riri Williams in one suit and Doom in another, chances are that he could go the same was as Captain America at the end of Civil War.  Time will tell on that front, but below you’ll find Alex Maleev’s designs for the Infamous Iron Man. He’ll be providing the artwork in the series for writer Brian Michael Bendis, and there’s no denying that the villain looks pretty cool here. It’s an interesting mashup of the classic Iron Man look and Doctor Doom’s well known armour, and Victor will no doubt be packing some very cool new firepower as well…

The Road To ‘Civil War’.


Captain+America-+Civil+War

The American Civil War… just kidding.  This has nothing to do with any of that.  I had the incredible opportunity to see Captain America: Civil War today, and I will not spoil anything.  However before I hit the secret Disney/Marvel screening, I took a look at a YouTube playlist of all the current Marvel Cinematic Universe trailers (which you can find here), and in the process, I stumbled across a video from the amazing editors at ‘MCU Exchange’ titled “Road To Civil War”.  This is a wonderfully put together 7 minute video that shows the progression of the MCU up until Captain America: Civil War.  Check out the complete wrap up below. Civil War hits theaters on Thursday May 5th in the U.S.

When Trailers SPOIL Movies…

Everyone loves exciting movie trailers before a film, and with movie previews being released onto the internet before they even hit theaters, people are watching them with a frenzied frequency.  But what happens when trailers reveal TOO much about a film?  Mr. Sunday Movies, (1 half of the Weekly Planet podcast, of which I am a massive fan) delves into how over revealing plot information can destroy the way people walk into a film, and furthermore, 6 disastrous examples of when a trailer has put too much on display about a film.

If Marvel Comic Heroes Were Rappers (Vol. 1).

Marvel Comics, has been knocking pretty much anything they do out of the park over recent years, be it movies, comic re-telling, and now marketing.  It would be a bit difficult to conceive of Marvel heroes crossing into the rap game, but Axel Alonso, editor in chief of Marvel, and his team of artists conceived of variant covers in order to generate buzz for over fifty No.1 issues that Marvel started releasing last month.  These cover take popular and iconic hip hop covers, and give them a Marvel twist.  Check the method, and NOTE: The collection is so vast, we had to split this up into two posts.

Tony Stark Gives His Armor Away To A One Armed Boy.


ironman-armor-final-big

The real Tony Stark AKA Robert Downey Jr. in conjunction with EnablingTheFuture delivered a real bionic prosthesis to a young fan, Alex, who was born without most of his right arm. The project, led by Albert Manero, aims to make low-cost 3D-printed arms for the disabled and Alex’s looks so much like a real Iron Man arm that even Stark was jealous.  It’s wonderful to see these sorts of things happen. 3D printing has long been derided as a gimmick but with these and other similar projects popping up and gaining traction we’re looking at an era where everyone, not just prosthetic experts, can help people who are disabled or disadvantaged. That Manero and Microsoft got Robert Downey Jr. to show up to this unveiling was icing on the feel-good cake. Previous EnablingTheFuture projects included a Storm Trooper arm presented by Vader himself and a kid who can now play guitar thanks to these designs. We’ve come a long way from being able to print highly-detailed 3D rabbits.
