Hey there readers there’s a new Spider-Man in town, and well, while you might already know him, he is in a brand new place and a part of a bigger universe. Check out the press release that I recently received about the upcoming mini-series “Spider-Men II”.
The Press Release:
THIS IS IT, TRUE BELIEVERS! The moment five years in the making is finally here! The first time Peter Parker and Miles Morales met ended with a question — WHO IS THE MILES MORALES OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE?! Now that the Miles you know and love is with Peter in the Marvel Universe, you’re finally going to get that answer to who the OTHER Miles Morales is! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg as Brian Michael Bendis (Defenders, Spider-Man) and Sara Pichelli (Spider-Man) bring you the next heart-stopping adventure for both Peter Parker and Miles Morales with Marvel Comics’ SPIDER-MEN II!
Speaking with Marvel.com, Bendis spoke towards Peter and Miles both holding onto the Spider-Man title in the Marvel Universe, “One of my favorite things about a shared universe, is that on top of what you’re writing for the characters, other things are happening to the characters, like now Miles is in the new universe, and now he’s a part of the Champions, and half of [Civil War II] was people fighting over his head, so things have changed in his life, and his relationship to the Marvel Universe is completely different than it was in the first series and that’s exciting.” Continue reading Marvel Comics Gives A First Look @ “Spider-Men II” #1→
As we get to the close of this media year of 2015, I’m happy to share the recently released image of actor Benedict Cumberbatch as “Doctor Strange” who we are seeing in costume for the very first time thanks to the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly magazine. Check it out.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to say that I like the look quite a bit as he has the necessary side gray hair and the amulet. Perhaps his collar could have been a little higher but I will not complain about it. I was also rather happy with the casting of Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange since he has “that look” of the character. I also have a lot of hopes for this film and that its able to pull off the special effects that bring to mind the classic Steve Ditko era stuff. There is a full feature in the issue as well but I only had the cover image to show you here in this posting. I need to snag a copy when I hit the shops as it also features looks inside “Batman V Superman” and (shudder) “Ghostbusters”. This magazine has been really good at showcasing some of these upcoming super-hero films when they are not talking about Kardashian this or Housewives that and have even given us some first glimpses at “X-Men: Apocalypse” and “Captain America: Civil War” over the last few months. What do you folks think of the visual here and if you have already read the article let me know in the comments if it was all to your liking. Until next time.
