As often happens when basketball players break their noses, the Miami Heat's LeBron James has been playing with a face mask for the past week or so. The one he sported for a bit was a rather intimidating, all-black number some people compared to Batman's mask (it takes some imagination, but you can kind of see it).
James didn't really like that one, though--it was hot and uncomfortable--and his teammates just plain thought it made him look scary. Even the NBA asked him to change it, so he has switched over to a clear one, for now. But James told the Associated Press he's working with artists at Marvel and DC to create "one of the greatest masks of all time," and artist Greg Land is first out of the gate a Captain America-themed design for him.
Good Smile Company's The Amazing Spider-ManFigma won't be its lone Marvel hero for much longer. This past weekend at Wonder Festival in Japan, the toymaker displayed its painted Iron Man and Thor prototypes, along with an unpainted Captain America, assembling three of the biggest stars from The Avengers movie.
Following the April 4 opening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum will have toys at the ready in both 2 and 7" scales. Yeah, there's plenty of Cap to be had, but the most important thing to glean from all this is that there's going to be a Batroc the Leaper minimate.
DC's heroes -- particularly Batman -- were the ones that got the big-screen treatment in this weekend's box office winner, The LEGO Movie, but that isn't stopping fans from bringing a few Marvel movie characters to life, too.
The team of Antonio and Andrea Toscano have lovingly recreated the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier completely in LEGO bricks and minifigures, and it's pretty doggone fantastic. Check out the video (and the original trailer for comparison) after the jump.
Riding the shield-slinging Captain America: The Winter Soldier promotional blitz that kicked off on Sunday, Gameloft has released its first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier: The Official Game. Headed to iOS, Android and Windows 8 mobile devices on April 4 -- the same day the movie opens -- the new game promises "an original blend of combat action and flexible tactical options." The trailer is more straightforward, though, and simply shows Captain America smashing faces.
Marvel has a new gallery of images (set to autoplaying music, you should be warned) that showcase not only Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, but Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as The Falcon, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier himself. In fact, it's probably the best clear look we've gotten at the character. Check out the images (with no autoplaying music) after the jump!
If Tumblr was a person, they'd be flipping their lid right now.
If you caught Thor: The Dark Worldin theaters a few months back, you know there's a scene in which Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, briefly transforms into Chris Evans' Captain America. It's a funny scene.
For filmmaking purposes we're not entirely privy to, other than maybe Hiddleston just wanted to wear a Captain America costume, the scene was originally shot with Loki's actor rather than Steve Rogers'. So get ready, Tumblr. You're about to see some magic.
Funko's 3.75" Pop! Vinyl line will welcome the latest movie incarnation of Marvel's Sentinel of Liberty (and company) this spring with a four-figure set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier figures. Set to arrive in March in anticipation of The First Avenger sequel's April 4 release date, the line will include fresh versions of Cap, Black Widow, and two versions of The Winter Soldier himself.
Fans may be saying farewell to Hasbro's 3.75" Marvel Universe action figure line, but pretty much in name only. This spring the line is reborn Infinite style, with an Avengers subline debuting Marvel Universe compatible versions of The Wasp, "Marvel Now" Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, The Grim Reaper and Hyperion.
