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.
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.
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.
Now that Avengers: Age of Ultron is out in the world, it’s time for Marvel to buckle down and start really promoting Ant-Man. With the new superhero making his debut in just a couple of months, now’s about the time for the studio to start flooding the media with new images, TV spots and featurettes. Today brings three new images from the upcoming film, featuring the tiny versions of the titular hero and his nemesis, Yellowjacket.
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.
Fans of Marvel’s Agent Carter were rightly ecstatic to learn that Peggy’s solo adventures would return for a second season in 2016, but there may yet be more reason to celebrate. Series star Hayley Atwell claims that Season 2 will have an expanded episode order from the first, also teasing new details of Agent Carter’s L.A. life.
The second wave of Hot Toys' Avengers: Age of Ultron Cosbaby figures was announced this week, this time giving some love to the under-appreciated true stars of the film, Vision and Black Widow. Seven more figures will join the line, which already includes the likes of Thor, Captain America and Ultron, all of which are rendered in adorable chibi fashion.
A new international trailer for Fantastic Four has arrived online, giving us another proper introduction to the team and another good look at the villainous Dr. Doom, who — you had to admit — looks much better than the version from the previous Fantastic Four movies.
