It’s already been widely reported that Avengers: Age of Ultron will feature an origin story for Ultron that’s different from the original Marvel comics, in which Hank Pym (aka Ant-Man) was responsible for the creation of the super-villain. If you were curious about why Ant-Man won’t be in the upcoming Avengers sequel at all, director Joss Whedon has some answers.
From Wally West and Linda Park, to Harley Quinn and Mistah J, we're asking you to vote on comics' most famous couples so we can determine the best (and worst) romantic partnerships that comics have to offer. If you think the couple is star-crossed and meant to be, vote 'True Love.' If you think they've got unstable chemistry and can only end badly, vote 'Bad Romance.'
In today's polls, we're looking at matched pairs. Hawkfolk. Acrobats. Size-shifting bug-themed heroes. When it comes to love, is it always opposites that attract, or is the secret to a lasting relationship the shared ability to breathe underwater? Fun fact: This is what Carrie Bradshaw would sound like if she lived in the Marvel or DC universe. Let's try another; If you want to build a future together, does it help to share a history of murdering people for the Russians?
If there was one takeaway from Toy Fair 2015, it's that you can never have too many Batman collectibles. So it's a good thing that Diamond Select is breaking out the big guns, and bringing a variety of Batman busts and collectibles based on the 1966 television series and the beloved animated series.
You can't go to a retailer these days without running across at least one of the many different toy lines Hasbro's released based on Marvel's various characters and properties. We're not complaining. If anything, we want more. Lucky for us, Hasbro's Toy Fair 2015 offerings had just what we were looking for--more Avengers, more Legends, and most of all, more Misty Knight.
If you're looking for a diverse line of toys that not only spans a variety of licenses and genres, but also puts your brain to the test, Lego's Toy Fair 2015 offerings might be of interest to you. From Marvel and DC to Scooby-Doo and Star Wars, this year's line-up offers incredible do-it-yourself creations for fans of all ages, even those meddling kids.
Seems like you can't check the internet these days without a new monthly mystery box subscription being announced. From geeky flavored subscriptions like Loot Crate and Nerdblock, to lifestyle selections like Birchbox and The Gentleman's Box, there's something for everyone.
Typically filled with a random assortment of goodies based around a theme, these boxes have offered subscribers a way to try new things without spending too much cash. However, we've rarely seen a single brand put out a box based solely on its own goods. That's where Funko's and Marvel's new Collector Corps hopes to stand out.
Following suit with many of Marvel's other major movie properties, Ant-Man will soon be available in action figure form.
This week sees Nick Spencer, Ramon Rosanas, Jordan Boyd and Travis Lanham launch a new book over at Marvel in the shape of Ant-Man. Featuring the Scott Lang version of the size-changing hero, the series is pitched as being about a C-List Avenger trying to turn around his post-Avengers career and get a new job, so he can provide for his daughter, Cassie. He has an upset ex-wife, a crappy apartment, a criminal past, and no hopes – and that's how the series begins.
With this first issue of the new series - which is on sale now - Spencer takes the jokey tone of his Superior Foes of Spider-Man series and downplays things significantly. While Foes was about villains trying to keep a criminal career going, here we have a hero trying to keep a heroic career going. Or, well, any career at all. It's a familiar concept for anybody reading Marvel at the moment, as most of their solo books are about the very same idea, played out in different ways.
It’s here. It’s finally here. The first trailer for Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ arrived during tonight’s two-hour ‘Agent Carter’ premiere. If for some strange reason you didn’t tune in to see Peggy Carter’s television debut (what’s your excuse?), the trailer has arrived online for your viewing pleasure. Following Marvel’s clever tiny teaser marketing, you’ll be pleased to watch Paul Rudd’s heroics in this regular-sized trailer.
If you’re going to make a movie called ‘Ant-Man’ about a superhero with the power to shrink down to tiny proportions and talk to insects, you better have a sense of humor about it. And that they do. Marvel has released the first ‘Ant-Man’ poster and you might want to get our your magnifying glasses for this one.
