Disney Planning TV Channels Centered Around Marvel and ‘Star Wars’

Lucasfilm

Acquiring Lucasfilm and Marvel were just two minor steps in Disney’s grand plan to eventually own everything you love and control your life as Entertainment Overlord Supreme of the Planet Earth. But to be fair, they are a benevolent god. A caring god. A god that wants to make its riches available to you, should you want to indulge yourself. So prepare thyself: TV channels based entire on Marvel and Star Wars content may be coming.

Just last month, Brad Bird revealed that he is finally (finally!) working on a screenplay for a sequel to Pixar’s The Incredibles — of all the Pixar properties, fans have wanted a sequel to this one the most. And now we’re finally getting one. It may still be a while, given Pixar’s production time, but Bird has confirmed that the sequel to his animated superhero hit is very likely his next project.

The House of Mouse has finally done it: Disney Infinity 3.0 will unite Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters under one roof for some massive adventures.

Disney has confirmed with Game Informer that Star Wars is coming to Disney Infinity 3.0, adding our favorite faces from a galaxy far, far away to the series. Avalanche Software will be making figures and in-game adventures spanning both the original and prequel trilogies. The studio will also be signing on other developers to work on Disney Infinity 3.0's various toy packs and multi-console releases. For example, the DmC: Devil May Cry team at Ninja Theory will be making the Twilight of the Republic playset, which will star Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka in a story set between Episodes II and III. Able to interact with this set will be the Darth Maul, Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi figures (each sold separately).

Toy Review: Sideshow Collectibles Hoth Luke Skywalker and Han Solo

Sideshow Collectibles Hoth Luke Skywalker Hoth Han Solo

Living in the Northeast can sometimes make you feel like you're stuck on the planet Hoth for months at a time. It's probably appropriate then that during this particularly frigid winter Sideshow Collectibles released new Star Wars sixth-scale figures for Luke Skywalker and Han Solo based on their appearances in the early moments of Empire Strikes Back.

Bundled up and ready to hunker down for the deep freeze, Han and Luke aren't just the latest characters to join Sideshow's continually expanding Star Wars line, they just might be the best the company's produced yet.

The True, Shocking Messages Found In Store-Bought Valentines Featuring Spider-Man, The Avengers, Big Hero 6, Adventure Time And More

Avengers

Over the years, we here at ComicsAlliance have brought you definitive rankings of the various comics-related valentines parents can buy for their kids at their local pharmacies and big-box stores. We sure have had a lot of fun cracking jokes about mass murderer General Zod wishing kids an enjoyable day and Spider-Man's flying motorcycle.

When Editor-in-Chief Andrew Wheeler threw a twenty in my face and told me, "You've got the valentines beat this year, Wilson," I thought that's what I'd be doing. Cranking out a few yuks about some cheap novelties. Little did I know that I would be taking a trip...down the rabbit hole.

Push Comics Forward: Talking About The Future With Boom EIC Matt Gagnon

boom featured image

Boom Studios has a reputation in the comics industry for publishing an increasingly diverse group of books and creators. This commitment to diversity in genre and people is reflected in an all-new initiative the publisher announced today in Previews with a letter from founder Ross Richie. While 2015 is the 10th anniversary of Boom, the publisher wants to talk about what's next rather than what's come before. They call this discussion of the future Push Comics Forward and they don't want it to be only about Boom.

Push Comics Forward is Boom's way of focusing on the ongoing conversation about diversity and the future of the industry. To learn more about this initiative and what to expect from Boom for the next ten years and beyond, we spoke with Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon.

‘Uncle Scrooge’ Comic Is Returning This April From IDW, With Scrooge Possibly Punching Out A Robot

Scrooge00

If there's one thing I think we can all agree on, it's that comics have been suffering from a distinct lack of Uncle Scrooge lately. He is, after all, officially ranked at #3 on ComicsAlliance's definitive but sadly unpublished list of the greatest comic book characters of all time, but while reprints of his more famous adventures have been making their way back to shelves recently, he hasn't had a monthly book in almost four years.

Fortunately, that's a problem that's soon to be remedied: Starting in April, IDW will be publishing a new monthly Uncle Scrooge comic as part of a new line of Disney books, kicking off the return of the whole line with Donald Duck in May, Mickey Mouse in April, and the long-running Walt Disney's Comics And Stories in June.

Bizarro Back Issues: Donald Duck and the Tear-Harvesting Christmas Witch (1948)

duck10

Last week, I mentioned that Lost in the Andes, Fantagraphics' amazing new book Donald Duck stories by Carl Barks, had one of the weirdest Christmas stories I've ever read. And for me, that's saying something: Christmas comics are one of the few things I go out of my way to collect regardless of who the creators are and who puts them out. I love the darn things, and over the years, I've read hundreds of 'em, going back through my favorites every year.

And even with all that, The Golden Christmas Tree might just take the fruitcake. After alll, most of the other Christmas stories I've read don't involve a harvest of tears or someone turning into a woodchipper.
