Ant-Man fist bumps Michael Douglas at the New York Stock Exchange

antmanMD

Proving once again that we live in a fascinating world full of nearly infinite possibilities, here is a photograph of Michael Douglas, the Oscar-winning star of the 1987 classic “Wall Street,” fist-bumping Marvel superhero Ant-Man inside the New York Stock Exchange building earlier today.

Of course, it was promotion for Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man,” opening this Friday, with Douglas ringing the NYSE Closing Bell. In the film, Michael Douglas plays long-running Marvel character Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man of comic book lore. Paul Rudd stars as Scott Lang, Marvel Comics’ subsequent Ant-Man — though unfortunately, it likely wasn’t Rudd inside the costume at the NYSE; perhaps the one thing that could make that photo even more improbable. Fingers crossed that in 2016, we’ll get Doctor Strange high-fiving Tilda Swinton inside the United Nations Headquarters.

The home of the Grand Slam Slugger, the Grand Slamwich and Moons Over My Hammy has partnered with 20th Century Fox to promote the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot with not only new dishes inspired by the film, but also a sweepstakes.

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is the 8-bit game we all want

cap-8bit

As fun as it is to watch 8-Bit Cinema’s reimagining of Captain America: The Winter Soldier as a classic side-scrolling action game, it’s probably for the best that it’s not really. Because, seriously, if there were an actual old-school adventure-spy game like this, in which you could play as Captain America, Black Widow, Nick Fury or the Falcon, we’d never get anything else done.

Hydra knows I fed enough quarters into Elevator Action when I was a kid …

Tron2

A fully functional “Tron: Legacy” light cycle has sold for $77,000 to an undisclosed buyer on RM Sotheby‘s website. Though a posting on the light cycle has circulated the internet since March, it officially went up for auction on May 2.

With a “96 volt, direct-drive electric motor with lithium batteries and a computer-controlled throttle, rebound and compression damping with spring-preload front suspension and rigid rear suspension, and front and rear hydraulic brakes,” the light cycle is “a fully functioning motorcycle that can be ridden, as it is powered by a direct-drive electric motor that has lithium batteries, which is mated to a computer-controlled digital electronic transmission. This custom ‘Tron’ tribute boasts a very low seat height of 28.5 inches, making it easy to ride even at low speeds.”

Cup of the Day | Avengers: Age of Flagon

Cup o' Ultron

There’s been a lot of Avengers: Age of Ultron promotional material, but there may not be anything quite as distinctive and as capable of holding large amounts of beverages as this Australian souvenir cup, shared by on Instagram by Tim Dillon, Marvel Studios’ executive director of marketing.

Shaped like the iconic Avengers “A,” it’s perfect for grabbing with two hands as you excitedly slurp down Coke Zero while Earth’s Mightiest Heroes attempt to fend off Ultron’s minions.

How much does it cost to be Iron Man? You can’t afford it

stark

If you had dreams of being a superhero, you better aim to be bitten by a radioactive spider, exposed to gamma radiation or recruited by a secret government program, because there’s no way you can afford to become Iron Man.

A new video from Super Comic Fun Time uses some pretty solid real-world prices, ranging from Bill Gates’ house to Japan’s K computer to the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit, to arrive at a price for living like Tony Stark — clothes, Stark Tower, multiple Iron Man suits, the works.

‘Fantastic Four’ trailer gets animated, with 100% more HERBIE

fantastic-four-animated2

The new trailer for director Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot featured humor, Doom, the Baxter Building and Marvel’s First Family using its powers, but it suffered from a serious lack of H.E.R.B.I.E. However, that regrettable oversight has been remedied in this fan-produced parody, which pairs the soundtrack from the trailer with footage from the Fantastic Four’s assorted (and also mostly regrettable) animated series.

Clearly, the absence of both a robot sidekick and scenes of The Thing kicking sand at a foe indicate Fox has no idea what it’s doing with the property.

Watch ‘Man at Arms’ forge Loki’s staff with glorious purpose

loki-staff

Nearly a year and a half after Man at Arms took up Thor’s hammer, Man at Arms: Recharged sets out to recreate Loki’s staff (aka the Chitauri scepter) from Marvel’s The Avengers.

It’s a labor-intensive process — would we expect anything less? — that yields impressive results, even if the staff doesn’t quite match the one from the Marvel Studios film.

Marvel recruits Italian soccer stars for ‘Age of Ultron’ promo spot

ultron-soccer

Never let it be said that Disney and Marvel Studios don’t know their market. To help promote the release this week of Avengers: Age of Ultron in Italy, they enlist a quartet of soccer stars.

For the promo spot Juventus Football Club’s Andrea Pirlo gets a boost from some custom Stark technology, Arturo Vidal sports an eye patch (and, apparently, moves) like Nick Fury, and Claudio Marchisio slings Captain America’s shield to block Giorgio Chiellini’s kick.

‘Age of Ultron’ trailer is even better with Spider-Man added

spide-avengers-still

The shot in the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer of the entire team leaping into action was so incredible that CBR’s Brett White wrote that the entire teaser “could have just been two minutes of this one moment on a loop and it would have still been a wild success.” (Naturally, a fan gave him exactly what he asked for.) But now someone has found a way to make that moment even more epic … by inserting Spider-Man.

The GIF is downright hypnotizing.
