Best Cosplay Ever (This Week): Boston Comic Con 2015

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

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.

The comics, sci-fi, gaming and fantasy communities’ talents for homemade disguises, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics are definitely on display this weekend at Boston Comic Con, and we were there to check out the show as well as capture some of the stellar cosplay on display.

But we can all breathe a sigh of relief as the writers of the new reboot have confirmed that we will not have to endure a retelling of how Peter Parker became the web-slinging hero.

Well that was fast — though not entirely surprising. Captain America: Civil War has been filming for a few months now, and various set photos have confirmed that the film is basically Avengers 2.5, featuring just about every major player in the MCU. One of those characters will be our new Spider-Man, Tom Holland, who is set to make a cameo in the film ahead of his solo Spidey movie.

‘Spider-Man’ Director Jon Watts Says Rebooted Peter Parker Is ‘Grounded, Relatable’

Spider-Man 3 Spidey

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige previously discussed the tone of the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, comparing it to the classic teen films of John Hughes. That’s a pretty high bar to set for the franchise, but an admirable aspiration all the same. It’s a challenge that director Jon Watts seems capable of taking on, and while we don’t know too much just yet about his plans, Watts has opened the door just a crack to give us a peek at what he has in store for Spidey.

‘Spider-Man’ Writers Want to Make New Reboot the Funniest Superhero Film

Spider Man reboot funny
ABC

Comic book fans know that Spider-Man has always been something of a wise-ass, cracking a lot of jokes while on his way to defeating Doctor Octopus or Mysterio. The laughs in the cinematic versions of Spider-Man have varied. The three Sam Raimi film captured the tone of the books, but were mostly light on laughs (emo Peter Parker notwithstanding). The two Amazing Spider-Man movies captured some of Spidey’s goofiness (remember when Spider-Man pulled Rhino’s pants down?), but tried to balance that with a humorless plot. The new Spider-Man reboot is still a few years off, but the writers of the film are at least talking a good game about making Spider-Man’s humor crucial to the plot.

It’s still a bit strange that we’re getting a third Spider-Man franchise already — the second reboot in three years, and the second reboot since Sam Raimi kicked off the franchise with 2002's Spider-Man. Following Marvel and Sony’s highly-anticipated deal to collaborate on the new reboot of the character, Raimi himself is weighing in with his thoughts on the deal and his faith in the future of Spidey.

Spider-Man and Judge Dredd Sign Up With ThreeA’s Bravest Warriors

ThreeA Judge Dredd

ThreeA has long been crafting original figures and collectibles based on the art and designs of co-founder Ashley Wood, but in recent years, the company has expanded its reach with a variety of licenses in comics, animation and films. That essence of Wood's aesthetic is still ever present though, and his influence still informs the design sense for many of ThreeA's upcoming pieces.

At San Diego Comic-Con this year, the company went all out with a major presentation of its upcoming slate. Normally included as a small part of IDW's booth, ThreeA's installation this year was set up like an art show, and showed off a great deal of promising figures in a range of scales and sizes. With figures from Frederator and 2000 AD, as well as Marvel, it appears the company is finally ready to make a big splash in the market beyond its original works.

It's been 18 years (that's right, 18 years) since Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness first teamed up on Deadpool back in 1997. A lot (and I mean a lot) of Deadpool comics have been published since then, but for many fans who read that original run, Kelly and McGuinness are still the definitive Deadpool team.

Those fans can now officially rejoice: Marvel announced at San Diego Comic-Con on Sunday that Kelly and McGuinness are teaming up again to pair Deadpool with another Marvel favorite, Spider-Man, in this fall's Spider-Man/Deadpool.

‘Amazing Spider-Man 3’ Would Have Included Venom, Brought Characters Back From the Dead

Before Marvel and Sony reached their highly-anticipated agreement to combine forces for a Spider-Man reboot, there was a lot of confusion about where the web-slinger was headed. We saw some of that in the e-mails following the Sony hack, accompanied by rumors about potential character returns and various spinoff plans. Now that director Marc Webb and the cast have moved on, they’ve begun to clarify what a third Amazing Spider-Man film would have been like.
