Marvel’s Cosplay Variants Return w New Covers/New Characters

I’ve long admired the skills that so many of the Cosplayers that I’ve encountered at the New York Comic Con and other conventions showcase to the world with their awesome representations of great heroes and villains. Now it seems like the folks over at the House Of Ideas are revisiting their “Cosplay Variant Covers” initiative and giving us “14” new covers and characters. Let’s take a look at the full press release and these awesome images.

The Press Release:
Cosplay is taking over again this fall! Following last year’s wildly successful round of variant covers, Marvel is excited to bring an entirely new wave of MARVEL: COSPLAY VARIANTS to select comics throughout September and October! Featuring new costumes, new cosplayers, and new characters – these mighty Marvel fans are brining your favorite super heroes to life across nearly 15 different titles!

“The response to our first set of COSPLAY VARIANTS was so incredible, we simply had to do a second wave,” says Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor-in-Chief. “And, of course, we were able to find a great crop of cosplayers with some truly fantastic costumes. We’re thrilled to shine a spotlight on an ever-growing community that continues to show love for us and our characters.”

Look for these exciting Marvel: (Cosplay Variant) s coming to these titles later this year:

It’s time to get excited about the superhero film stuff once again because Phase 3 of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe begins here with the opening of “Captain America: Civil War”. After the massive amount of mixed opinion that DC’s Extended Universe found with “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” I can honestly say that I am so looking forward to this live-action adventure. Check out the official poster and the premise along with the main cast and then I will return with some thoughts.

The Premise:
One year after the events of “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, another international incident involving the Avengers resulting in collateral damage occurs, prompting politicians to form a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to call in the team. When Steve Rogers attempts to protect his friend Bucky Barnes from this act, he is brought into conflict with Tony Stark. This results in the fracturing of the Avengers into two opposing factions—one led by Rogers, who wishes to operate without regulation, and the other by Stark, who supports government oversight—while the world is threatened by a new enemy.

The excitement about “Deadpool” is finally showing some signs of slowing down and the buzz is building to a serious momemtum about the very soon to open “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” film but coming up quick on the energy burst meters is the just released second trailer for Marvel’s next offering in the May opening film “Captain America: Civil War”. Check out the second trailer below and then we can chat a little bit.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: SCREAMS!!!!!!! That’s all I have for this. So great to have the Web-Spinner in the proper Marvel Cinematic Universe at long last. I know you are excited as well, especially after that last Spider-Man film that Sony gave us. Let’s cross our fingers for the most positive of growth of this now very encompassing Marvel Universe. Full steam ahead. May cannot get here soon enough for me.

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.

Presenting: “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” Trailer #3

I’m not generally into the practice of putting up trailer after trailer for any of these films that I have been broadcasting about but I just had to share the third released trailer for Marvel Studios “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” and you will see why after watching. Check it out below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m going to hold my excitement back for a second and stress that this is the last trailer I am posting or even watching. One thing I am starting to hate about the revealed trailers is that too much action is showcased and I already know going in that this is going to be an exciting film. You studios do not need to oversell the geek market. We are going to go and we are going to do this repeatedly. Trust me on this one. So in this trailer we see just how much of a thorn in the side to the Avengers that Ultron is going to be and I am very curious as to how both the Witch and Quicksilver are following him around. There is a lot of combative interaction with our heroes so I speculate some enchantments that bring that up and when it all closes up we get The Vision. The VISION!!!! You don’t know how awesome that is to see happening for me as a longtime fan of The Avengers comics mythology. He is such a great character and I think this will up the ante to our heroes favor after some incredible pitfalls. May 1st cannot come fast enough.
