For all those who’ve said that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a far too male dominated landscape...well, you’re right. But, it looks like Marvel is at least trying to work on that and has made one big, exciting step forward in the right direction. Oscar-winning actor Tilda Swinton is in talks to star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange as The Ancient One, a role originally written for a male.

Iron Man’s New Suit Marks a Big Occasion for Hot Toys Movie Masterpieces

For years, Hot Toys has been releasing licensed figures as part of its Movie Masterpieces line. Anticipation for what the 300th figure in the long-running collection would be started peaking earlier this year as the number of new announcements drew us ever-closer to the magical tricentennial collectible.

If you've been following the company's release slate for the past seven years, you'd know Hot Toys has a certain affinity for Iron Man. As such, it came as little surprise to learn that Hot Toys MMS 300 would be yet again another Iron Man figure. Hey, at least it's an all-new design this time.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases For May 27, 2015

BestComics_0527

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

Last time Deadpool and Wolverine got together on the big screen, things didn’t turn out so great. The less said about that, the better. But the new Deadpool solo movie looks like it’s finally going to do the character justice, and if Ryan Reynolds gets his way, we’ll also get a little added bonus to help make up for that whole X-Men Origins: Wolverine thing. Oh, sorry, I said we weren’t going to talk about that.

The latest photo posted to Bryan Singer’s Instagram account doesn’t show you a whole lot, but it does tell you quite a bit. Not only will we be seeing Apocalypse in the next X-Men outing, but we’ll be getting another new character from the comic books as well — one who hasn’t appeared in any previous X-Men film: Caliban.

Channing Tatum Says ‘Gambit’ Will Be an Unconventional Origin Story

Yes, Channing Tatum is still planning to make that Gambit movie. He just needs a finished screenplay. And a director. And an angle that helps us forget that Gambit is one of the lamest X-Men to ever achieve inexplicable popularity. (Note: This is not the position of the editor of ComicsAlliance. Gambit is awesome.) Casting the intensely likable and charismatic Tatum goes a long away toward achieving that last goal, and in a new interview, the Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street star revealed that the first draft of the script has been turned in ... and that the movie will be an origin story, albeit one that won’t play by the normal superhero movie rules.

Samsung’s Iron Man Galaxy S6 Edge is Almost as Limited as One of Tony’s Suits

After not so subtly teasing a special variant edition of its new Galaxy S6 Edge for the past week, Samsung has formally unveiled the Iron Man edition of the new smartphone. As part of a brand partnership with Marvel, Samsung has already released a handful of Avengers themed goods like phone cases for the Galaxy S6 and a wireless charger that looks like Captain America's shield. All of those goods however, pale in comparison to a phone designed to put Iron Man right in your pocket. Sort of.

‘Wolverine: Top Secret’ Takes That Lovable Grump To The Prom

animated wolverine

In 1994, X-Men: The Animated Series was still going strong, and X-Men comics were buoyant. Things were going pretty poorly for Wolverine on both counts; season three of the cartoon began with his delicate ex returning as Lady Deathstrike and moved quickly into the Phoenix Saga, whilst March brought the wedding of Scott and Jean into the pages of X-Men. That poor sad gravelly muscle beast! Marvel took pity on him, I suppose, and farmed out publication of Francine Hughes’ Wolverine: Top Secret. It’s a novel. It’s for young readers. The first chapter is called Chapter 1: The Prom.
