Earlier today, we reported the rumor that not only has Captain Marvel been cast, but she’ll be making her first appearance in the already superhero-heavy Avengers: Age of Ultron. Having major superheroes make cameos or debut in other films from their respective studios has become the norm, so it’s hardly surprising to hear that X-Men: Apocalypse — which is said to primarily focus on the First Class cast — will feature a few cameos from other X-Men…including one pretty exciting mutant in particular.

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.
Aatmaja Pandya is a cartoonist who specializes in doing minicomics and zines as well as webcomics. Some of her past projects include The Bell Blues, Baker’s Dozen, and Travelogue, which is the webcomic she's currently working on.
Bro, do you like surprises, bro? Then you'll love the just-released Hawkguy figure from Diamond's Marvel Select line. Partly because of the David Aja-inspired interpretation, but mostly because of the inclusion of Lucky aka Pizza Dog.
Some gloriously wacky ideas have come out of Marvel's plans for Secret Wars, from an Arkon series set in a fantasy world to a dinosaur vs biplanes story, but one of the ideas we're most excited about --- especially since we saw the preview pages --- is Ghost Racers, Felipe Smith and Juan Gedeon's tale of various Ghost Riders competing on a hellish racetrack for a chance to save their souls.
To add to our excitement, Marvel has given us an exclusive look at Gedeon's designs for the riders and their rides, including Carter Slade's centaur mode, Johnny Blaze's stuntman costume, and an electrified Zero Cochrane, aka Ghost Rider 2099. The sketches also include a new version of Zadkiel, the archangel charged with overseeing the Spirits of Vengeance that power the Ghost Riders.
Yesterday, Karla Pacheco and Steve LeCouilliard launched a brand new comic called Dreadful Sirens based on real female pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read, which their website promises will be updated weekly at DreadfulSirens.com. It is pretty darn NSFW (even the website before you get to the comics is NSFW) but also pretty great. Dreadful Sirens is a webcomic in that it is on the web, but you have a few options to view it, including reading or downloading through Gumroad and their pay-what-you-like option. This way you can get great, entertaining, apparently misandrist comics for a price you can afford!
We heard rumors a while back that Captain Marvel would make her big screen debut in Avengers 2 before getting her own solo film in a few years, but then heard this was no longer the case. Now, according to a source who has been right about this kind of stuff before, Marvel has secretly cast their Carol Danvers and has plans to introduce her very soon.
Cartoonist and all-round Comics Legend Gilbert Hernandez announced a new single-issue project with Fantagraphics on his twitter account this week, in the form of the black and white anthology Blubber. The Love and Rockets co-creator described the project as "not for the squeamish," and demonstrated his point by sharing the below page of.... a penguin farting through the air before having painful diarrhea.
All-New All-Different Avengers is one of two Marvel Free Comic Book Day titles, alongside Secret Wars #0, and while the latter sets the stage for Marvel's multiversal summer event, the former is our first look at what the new Marvel Universe will look like after Secret Wars --- so of course, Marvel is only telling us so much. The publisher has now revealed a cover for the Free Comic Book Day All-New All-Different Avengers comic, but most of the cover remains in silhouette.
Still, that won't stop us from wildly speculating (and maybe even making some informed guesses).
One of the harsh realities of life is that all things must end, even the current spate of Marvel Studios films. One day, the actors will move on (Robert Downey Jr. already has one foot out the door) and the movie Avengers roster of the early-to-mid 2010s will morph into something else.
But what if you didn't want them to? What if your fandom reached such great heights that you wished that the movie Avengers of today could be with you forever, and you could immortalize them in the walls, bookcases, kitchen cabinets and bed frames of your home Someone in Singapore apparently did just that, with the help of Absolook Interior Designs. For that one fan, it will be 2012 to 2015 for a lifetime (or until she or he trades out the decor for The Inhumans or Justice League 2 in 2019).
