Hot Toys Reveals Their AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Captain America Action Figure

hot-toys-reveals-their-avengers-infinity-war-captain-america-action-figure

Here it is! Hot Toys has revealed their 1/6th scale collectible action figure for Captain America from Avengers: Infinity War. I actually own every version of Captain America that Hot Toys has made from each of the films that he has appeared in. So, it looks like I’ll have to drop some money on this bad boy to complete my collection. After all… Captain America could very well die in this movie. It’s just something that most fans are expecting to happen.

This new figure gives us a close-up and detailed look at Caps suit, which as you can tell has been through a lot. As you can see, it’s really worn out. It makes me wonder… how do superheroes like Captain America clean their suits!? Do they take the time to clean them? Do they take it to the dry cleaners? Do they never clean it and just let it soak in the stinky sweat of battle? I’ll be dwelling on this for awhile.

Hot Toys Reveals Their Incredibly Cool AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Iron Spider Action Figure

Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum Like The Idea of a SMALLVILLE: THE ANIMATED SEIRES

Smallville was such an amazing series and it helped pave that way for the DC series’ that we are currently enjoying on The CW. It was kinda sad when Smallville came to an end seven years ago and since then fans have wondered if we ever might see some kind of revival.

Well, last weekend at Awesome-Con, there was a Smallville panel with stars Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum. During the Q&A a fan got up and asked if Smallville could ever be brought back in live-action or animated form that could stream on the DC streaming service. Tom Welling was totally open to the idea of an animated series, saying:

Stephen Amell Says BLACK LIGHTNING Will Probably Join The Arrow-Verse

The CW’s top brass has been adamant about the fact that Black Lightning may not crossover with the rest of the Arrow-verse, although Stephen Amell doesn’t buy it. The Arrow star commented on the show’s success at AwesomeCon (via ComicBook) and told fans in attendance he believed a crossover is coming sooner or later:

“Everyone pretends like we’re not going to eventually cross over with Black Lightning but we’re probably gonna cross over with Black Lightning, because that’s just the way that the world works. . . . Yeah, I would love to. I think that anything you can do to expand the universe and to build out what we’ve built on our show would be great. So, I’m glad that show’s doing well, I hope that it has a very successful run, and I would love to be a small part of it in some way shape, or form.”

Yeah, I tend to agree with Amell especially given the show’s success. Even if the Black Lightning crew is sticking their heads in the ground and refusing a collaboration, The CW is going to mix it into the bunch. I don’t necessarily think that’s a bad thing, personally, as I think it would be weirder not to include Black Lightning in the next crossover event. I’m sure some people feel differently, so share your thoughts in the comments below.

The Film Adaptation of RED SONJA Moves Forward with the Writer of THOR and X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

After the success of Wonder Woman, Millennium Films was excited about moving forward with their feature film adaptation of Robert E. Howard‘s Red Sonja. The production company has now hired screenwriter Ashley Edward Miller to write the screenplay. Miller has worked on projects such as Thor, X-Men: First Class, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and the upcoming remake of Big Trouble in Little China.

Red Sonja made her comic debut in Marvel’s Conan the Barbarian #23 back in 1975 from writer Roy Thomas and artist Barry Windsor-Smith. She was loosely based on Red Sonya of Rogatino in Robert E. Howard‘s 1934 short story “The Shadow of the Vulture.”

Woody Harrelson is Reportedly Playing Carnage in The VENOM Movie

When Woody Harrelson was cast in Venom, there was speculation among fans that maybe he could end up playing Carnage in the film. Well, according to a new report from Bleeding Cool, he actually will be playing Carnage. The entertainment news site has been hit or miss with their movie scoop intel, so even though they say they can confirm it, we are going to treat it as a rumor for now.

However, if Woody Harrelson is playing Carnage that would be awesome! He is a great actor, who has played some wicked cool villains, and I’m sure he would do some great things with bringing the character to life on the big screen.

29749431_10155395085777344_6483223635455489555_o.jpg

Hot Toys has unleashed their Avengers: Infinity War collectible action figure and this thing is big! He stands so much taller than the other Avengers Hot Toys action figures! On top of that, as you can see, he has all of the Infinity Stones! If this is any indication of what happens in the film, the MCU and most of the characters that fill it are screwed. As you know, once the infinity gauntlet is locked and loaded with the stones, all it will take is a snap of his fingers to destroy half of the universe.

This latest figure is awesome and I would love to get my hands on one! It’s probably not going to be cheap, though.

“Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.” – Thanos

In less than a month, fans will witness the Avengers assemble again in Marvel Studios Avengers: Infinity War, who are brought face to face with the cunning, intelligent, and fierce warlord, Thanos, a ruthless cosmic threat consumed with saving the universe from itself. To stop him, the Avengers must join forces to bring down this villain who will stop at nothing to collect the six Infinity Stones.

Hot Toys has dedicated its great effort to create the latest Avengers: Infinity War collectibles based on the most up-to-date details, and today Hot Toys is ecstatic to officially introduce the highly movie accurate 1/6th scale Thanos collectible figure that Marvels fans eagerly sought after!

The spectacular 1/6th scale Thanos collectible figure is meticulously crafted with impressive likeness based on the main appearance of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. The collectible figure features two newly developed and sophisticatedly crafted interchangeable head sculpts inspired by Thano’s serious and angry expressions respectively. It also comes with two styles of LED light up metallic gold-colored Infinity Gauntlets with all six Infinity Stones and weathering effect, an additional interchangeable non-articulated left arm with great muscle details for Thanos’ iconic and intimidating clenched fist pose, a newly sculpted and tailored armored costume with intricate details, and a specially designed figure base and backdrop.

This astonishingly detailed collectible figure of the mighty Marvel Cinematic Universe super villain will surely put a smile on your face when you add him to your incredible Marvel collection!

Director Matt Reeves Offers a Brief But Optimistic Update on THE BATMAN

Matt Reeves has been deep into the development of The Batman for Warner Bros. and after a fan recently asked how it was coming along, the director offered a brief but enthusiastic response.

Elijah Pierson @elijahPierson

I’m sure people ask you all the time about The Batman, who will be in it, what it’s about, etc. But I bet no one asks HOW it is going on The Batman. So, how is it going on The Batman?

Matt Reeves

? @mattreevesLA

Really, really well, thanks! I could not be more excited! ?

The last we heard from Reeves, he said, “I am outlining, I have the story worked out and I am outlining.” It was then revealed later that the studio was looking to start shooting the film in 2019, which means we won’t see the next Batman movie in theaters until 2020 or 2021.

As we’ve previously reported, he’s looking to do a dark noir-style film that will focus on the detective side of the Dark Knight, which I’m excited about seeing! If all goes well, Reeves has an idea for a story arc that would span over the course of a trilogy of films.

It was recently reported that Fox pushed the release dates back for X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants. We won’t be seeing these films released until 2019. Thanks to Collider, we now know the reason for the delay and that reason is because of some reshoots that need to happen.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix was originally scheduled to be released on November 2, 2018 and was moved to February 14, 2019. The New Mutants moved from February 2019 to August 2, 2019. This is the second time that the release date was pushed for that movie. It was originally set for an April 2018 release before being pushed to February.

Marvel Comics is Bringing Back FANTASTIC FOUR!

marvel-comics-is-bringing-back-the-fantastic-four2

In 2015 Marvel Comics brought an end to Fantastic Four, which was one of its longest continuous comic series ever. It was a big surprise, but it happened around the time when Fox was going to release that terrible Fantastic Four film. I heard rumors that the reason Marvel canceled the comic series was to stick it to Fox because they were going through some tense times. But regardless of what the reason was, Marvel brought it to an end.

Marvel Comics has now revealed that they are officially bringing Fantastic Four back in a new ongoing series! I guess now that Disney is buying Fox, they feel it’s okay to bring Marvel’s first family back together. If we ever do see a new Fantastic Four movie, it’s going to come from Marvel Studios next time. It only makes sense that they’d want a Fantastic Four comic to help in their marketing efforts.

The comic will be written by Dan Slott, with art by Sara Pichelli. The new Fantastic Four book will bring Reed and Sue back to Earth, reuniting the team for the first time since Secret Wars. Fantastic Four #1 launches this August.
