Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Multimedia concept art is always pretty neat, if only to see how things might've been, and that's especially true for movies based on comics. We're all pretty familiar with how the real Spider-Man (oh you know what I mean) looks, so little twists to his costume that are done for the big screen are always worth looking at, even if they run the gamut between "pretty cool" and "terrifyingly awful."
Fortunately, Jared Krichevsky's concepts for TheAmazing Spider-Man 2 skew a lot closer to the former. He's got art for how the movie might've looked, in a world where, as CA's Caleb Goellner put it, "the Rhino looks like Kamen Rider Kabuto and Miles Morales was the star."
Hot Toys' 1/6 scale Spider-Man figure from The Amazing Spider-Man 2movie looks like he's in for some towering trouble. With the film opening internationally ahead of its May 2 US release date, the Hong Kong-based Hot Toys has posted a look at what appears to be one of the biggest toys its ever done and a mech that could stand toe-to-metal-toe with much of its cinematic Iron Man offerings. That's right, it's the Rhino.
Hasbro's 3.75" Marvel Universe line will welcome scads of new characters featuring numerous new sculpts this Spring. Rhino, Captain America, Mysterio, Elektra, Baron Zemo (now flying solo from last SDCC's Masters of Evil box set), Cloak, Dagger, A-Bomb, a variant Abomination and a Black and White Iron Man will join the growing line...
It's somewhat a tradition, for good or bad, that sequels to superhero movies feature multiple villains, so it should come as no surprise that the upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man may have more than one antagonist...
Digital: If you've been enjoying the new DmC video game, Titan Comics has launched the first of a two-issue series of tie in comics called DmC: Devil May Cry: The Vergil Chronicles on ComiXology that might be up your alley...
It's probably not that uncommon for some comic book fans to fantasize about being Stan Lee, considering he co-created much of the Marvel Universe and had the honor of working with such comic book legends as Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and John Buscema (amongst many, many others) in the process...
