While tooling around the Net this morning I learned that the teaser trailer for the upcoming Marvel Studios film “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” has been leaked and with this being the case, they added it to their own YouTube.com channel for all to enjoy. As a lifelong geek for things that are comic book related I just had to toss this post together for you to check it out.
Premise: In Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Avengers must work together to defeat Ultron, a technological enemy bent on human extinction. – That’s pretty much all we need to describe the goings on in this film since the trailers have shown it to be loaded with action and super heroic feats. That is all I need at least. Check out the main cast for this one. Continue reading The Trailer for “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” Has Leaked! Check It Out!→
I had initially planned on putting up a broadcast per interesting news item but the stuff that came flying at my mailbox from the Marvel Comics side this week was just too fast for that and as many readers have seen, there had been several tour announcements to dish out. That said I lumped all three of these interesting and somewhat major happenings in the Marvel Universe into one post. I hope you will forgive me for taking the easy way out this time around 🙂 Let’s get down to business.
1. Thor Gets In Touch With His Feminine Side & Becomes A Woman: On the Tuesday episode of “The View” Marvel made the announcement that Thor would become a female in a move to attract more people to the franchise. Writer Jason Aaron was quoted as saying “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”
Back in March I put up a post that showcased some incredible Hasbro action figures for the new film “Captain America The Winter Soldier” which you can check out HERE. Now that the film has been out for a month I figured let me post the images of the lines wave two of figures to be complete. There’s three additional figures to add to your collection so lets get right down to business shall we.
First up we have a new Black Widow so all your Scarlett Johansson fans will be super happy to add this kick ass heroine to the ranks of your own personal Avengers. As before I am using the press provided images and they gave us the free standing figure and one in the packaging.
Now I realize that I used this to open up the broadcast post about the first Captain America film when it came out but its such a good song that I just had to do it again, here we go 🙂
“When Captain America throws his mighty shield! All those who chose to oppose his shield must yield! If he’s led to a fight and a duel is due then the red and the white and the blue will come through when Captain America throws his mighty shield!!!!!”
Okay, that is out of my system now for the most part but how cool is it that the second film featuring Cap is opening up today as a part of the continued efforts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Pretty damn cool in my book. The poster is pretty dramatic as well, check it out….
In addition to the previously mentioned “Guardians Of The Galaxy” film, Marvel Studios is releasing the second film starring that patriotic Avenger with “Captain America The Winter Soldier” and the trailer for this one looks like gangbusters in terms of excitement. The film comes out next month and this posting showcases some of the awesome and detailed action figures that will be coming out care of Hasbro Toys as they continue the Marvel Legends Infinite Series. As before I’ll keep it brief and let the photos do the talking and then offer up my thoughts at the close about this line.
These figures were a part of the Hasbro Toys revealed at the 2014 Toy Fair at their show room offsite. We did not go to the showroom so instead have used the press provided images for this particular line. This time around we have the packaging images as well and figured that some of you might like to see that. The first wave of six figures for this series is very interesting since its quite laden with Marvel Comics villainy. Starting off we have one of the Soldiers of A.I.M. (that’s Advanced Idea Mechanics for those who don’t know). They’re a nasty group of scientists that plagues many of Marvel Comics heroes. You’ll notice also that this is a “Build A Figure” series and many figures include a piece of a larger figure that you can assemble when you have them all. In this case its a Mandroid which is a S.H.I.E.L.D. issue armor that was designed by Tony Stark (Iron Man).
