Brie Larson comments on the responsibility of playing Captain Marvel in the MCU.

Image
Over the past few years, Captain Marvel has become an extremely popular Marvel Comics character and with the upcoming release of her own film her popularity is still very much on the rise. Fans are ecstatic to have a female lead Marvel film hit theaters.

While speaking to Total Film, actress Brie Larson, who is set to play Captain Marvel in the film, spoke about the importance of the character and her hope to get her right.
"“I feel a great responsibility. I have so many conversations with fans about the universe and this character in particular. I’m grateful for social media for that, actually — it’s such a great way to connect with people, to understand what it is they love about this character, what it is they hope to see. Where this character’s at in the comic books is such an inspiring space right now. I’m so grateful to be part of it.”" I think Brie is going to do an amazing job in the role and cannot wait for the film's release. This is going to be such an amazin…

Marvel teases a mysterious "Batch-H" image of Hulk / Wolverine character.

Image
Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso teased Marvel fans today with a mysterious image posted to Twitter with the caption "Under Construction".


As you can see the image being teased is a Hulk-like create inside of a tank labeled "Batch-H". The crazy thing is that this Hulk-like creature has the same style claws as Wolverine!

It's been no secret that in Marvel Comics secret government organizations around the world love to experiment with genetics to make the next super soldier for their country but what exactly could "Batch-H" be exactly? Could it be a continuation of the Weapon X program? Could someone have cloned the Hulk and gave him Wolverine's signature claws? What are the claws made of? Are they adamantium like Wolverine's?

There are so many questions that this image raises but we'll have to wait and see what Marvel reveals next. What are your thoughts on this new, mysterious image?

Star Wars' new Chewbacca actor takes a moment to say thank you to fans and Peter Mayhew.

Image
Actor Peter Mayhew has been playing the role of Chewbacca in Star Wars films since 1977 and since his first appearance, Chewbacca has become an iconic character in cinema. This is due to how well Peter Mayhew brought the character to life without a single word. However, when filming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mayhew shared the role of Chewbacca with actor Joonas Suotamo. This was done to help ease the scheduling for Mayhew who was having issues walking due to bad knees which he was having operations on. However, with the Han Solo standalone film shooting Mayhew has officially passed the mantle of Chewbacca on to Suotamo.

In light of officially becoming the new Chewbacca, Suotamo took a moment to say a few words of thanks to his fans, supporters, and most notably, Peter Mayhew.

I'm ecstatic. It's official. And here is my statement to this terrific piece of news https://t.co/a1DPsNDb2Ppic.twitter.com/r4EUZ2r17V — Joonas Suotamo (@JoonasSuotamo) February 21, 2017

Man at Arms: Reforged creates Green Lantern's power ring.

Image
Man at Arms: Reforged is back with a new video and this time around they are forging a different kind of weapon in their shop. This week the team created the Green Lantern power ring from the Green Lantern film. This was the first time that the team forged a piece of jewelry and it was really interesting to see the techniques that they used to create it. The end result had an interesting look but given that most of it was forged from a single piece of jade is extremely cool.

What kind of weapons from film / TV/ video games would you want to see Man at Arms forge?

Emma Watson sings "Belle" in the newest clip for Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

Image
Bonjour! A new clip for Disney's live action Beauty and the Beast has been released and I must say they more I see, the more excited I get for this film! The clip features the scene in which the classic song "Belle" is sung by actress Emma Watson and she does a great job singing it. I still wish a French actress was cast as Belle but I must give credit where it's due and Emma has done a great job. The scene looks like it will be a lot of fun to watch in it's entirety. Enjoy!



Beauty and the Beast will be in theaters on March 17, 2017.

David Thewlis is cast as Ares in Wonder Woman. See what he'll look like in the film!

Image
It was recently revealed that Ares would be the big villain of the upcoming DC film Wonder Woman but now the news that actor David Thewlis (Professor Lupin in the Harry Potter franchise) has been cast in the role is officially released. It is being reported that Ares will be a mixture of both CGI and practical effects in the film.

Below you can see what Ares will look like in the film thanks to his action figure on display at Toy Fair New York.


I love this design and love the comics influence that it has. The skull helmet looks amazing and looks similar to the Injustice helmet. Even though some fans may call out for the Roman style helmet I think the creepy factor to this one gives it the perfect look for the character. 

What do you think about the casting and the design look for Ares?

Wonder Woman will be in theaters on June 2, 2017.

First look at Shocker from Spider-Man: Homecoming revealed at Toy Fair New York!

Image
It has been known for some time that the Spider-Man villain Shocker would be introduced in the upcoming film Spider-Man: Homecoming and that he would be played by actor Bokeem Woodbine. Fans have even gotten small glimpses of Woodbine in the film trailers that have been released. However, it was not known to what extent Shocker would be used or if we would see Shocker in a comic style costume in the film.

That has changed thanks to some promo art revealed at Toy Fair New York this weekend that shows off the Shocker's costume (seen above). Though there are some minor changes to the suit it looks like it is heavily influenced by the comic costume which is great. It also looks like Spidey is about to launch himself with a web catapult which will be a lot of fun to see in the film.

What do you think of Shocker's costume for the upcoming film?

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be in theaters on July 7, 2017.
