Deadpool has finally begun filming after over 8 years in development. It's been a long time for Ryan Reynolds and fans of the merc with a mouth, but to help thank you for your support (and help getting this movie made), Reynolds has tweeted out the first look at his new costume in the film.
To commemorate the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron in Asia, Hot Toys will be traveling to eight different cities with its "Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron Exhibition." The tour will show off some life-size recreations of the stars and heroes of the film, all crafted by Hot Toys' artists, as well as offering an exclusive Iron Man figure at each stop.
Jubilee is one of the more wildly divisive characters from X-Men — you either love or loathe her to pieces. Throughout five X-Men films and a few spinoffs, Jubilee has never really been featured, although she did put in some very minor appearances in the first few films. That’s all changing now as director Bryan Singer has cast newcomer Lana Condor as Jubilee for X-Men: Apocalypse.
ComicsAlliance folks are big fans of Joe Kelly and J.M. Ken Niimura's 2008 graphic novel I Kill Giants, with its feisty lead character and manga-style art --- and the lovely deluxe fifth anniversary edition that came out just last year. Thus, it's exciting to hear that the movie adaptation directed by Anders Walter has locked in funding from Treehouse Pictures. Given how many steps it takes to get a comics movie from optioned to actual reality, this means we're that much more likely to actually see an I Kill Giants movie.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron reveals just keep coming from Hot Toys. Today, the company revealed the all-new Hawkeye sixth-scale figure, which comes with a fresh head sculpt. Too bad Jeremy Renner doesn't look too happy about it.
This isn’t exactly surprising news, since it’s been speculated for some time now that Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy might be making X-Men: Apocalypse their last outing with the franchise. Lawrence and Fassbender in particular are in increasingly high demand (and they aren’t particularly cheap, either), so it makes sense that either or both of them wouldn’t want to remain tied to the franchise for much longer. Lawrence has confirmed as much in a new interview, putting the speculation to rest once and for all.
For a long time it seemed like the Deadpool movie could never happen. The character's first appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine completely mis-read Deadpool's appeal despite the seemingly perfect casing of Ryan Reynolds. When Reynolds made his DC with the Green Lantern movie for Warner Bros., it seemed unlikely that Deadpool would ever get back in track.
The canny decision to leak some test footage back in July of last year for a Deadpool movie treatment that relies heavily on CGI to embrace the character's Looney Tunes cartoonishness caused enough of a stir that Deadpool was suddenly alive again, with Reynolds still attached to star. Now we have evidence from the cast that the movie has entered into production, which means it is really, actually happening.
Avengers 2 doesn't open for another few weeks, but deep inside Marvel headquarters they've already begun turning their attention to the next big movie: Captain America: Civil War. Frequently referred to as Avengers 2.5 because of the sheer amount of superheroes packed into this one film — Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Falcon, Black Panther, Spider-Man and Hawkeye are all confirmed to star — the third Captain America movie might be the biggest superhero film yet. As Marvel gets ready to begin filming, a casting call has given us our first look at the film's plot.
Though she was hinted at during Toy Soul late last year, Hot Toys officially revealed the Avengers: Age of Ultron Black Widow figure today. With a new 'do, uniform, weapons and more, Black Widow has never looked better. Well, except in her Captain America: The Winter Solider form, which had the exact same head sculpt.
Have you had your fill of Avengers: Age of Ultron collectibles yet? No? Good, because Hot Toys has even more coming to satisfy your chibi-loving needs. The new Avengers: Age of Ultron Cosbaby figures will cute-ify the action heroes and big, bad villains of the upcoming movie, but even the anime influence can't make Ultron adorable. It's unpossible.
