The Biggest Superhero Films That Didn't Happen, Part 2
Comic Books, Film
In addition to being fun for comic fans of all ages, LEGO playsets have earned a reputation for spoiling minor plot points about the films they tie-in with over the past year. The “Avengers: Age of Ultron” sets, “Ant-Man” sets and “Captain America: Civil War” sets all leaked information, ranging from the mundane to the giant (literally, in “Civil War’s” case). Knowing that, Ryan Reynolds recently took major issue with a few of “Deadpool’s” LEGO sets — kinda.
“Cute” isn’t a word typically associated with Marvel’s disfigured Merc With a Mouth, but there’s little denying it applies to Hot Toys’ new Deadpool Cosbaby.
The Hong Kong toymaker has followed the reveal of its 1/6th-scale Deadpool action figure with the first official look at this 3.75-inch bobblehead collectible, which comes complete with its own katana.
Legendary artist George Perez brings together Marvel’s Merc With a Mouth and DC’s own mercenary/assassin for a commission sketch that literally merges Deadpool with Deathstroke. Seriously, they split the body right down the middle.
“With the Deadpool movie coming out and with its connection to the Deathstroke character, this seemed like a nice piece to put up,” wrote Perez, who created Deathstroke with Marv Wolfman. “Truthfully, I wasn’t particularly aware of the connection between these two characters until the person who commissioned this piece pointed it out to me. I hope you all enjoy this unusual merging.”
Not content with merely breaking the fourth wall, Marvel’s Merc With a Mouth is now digging deep into our closets in an expanded line of Deadpool clothing from WeLoveFine.
The apparel company, which already had more Deadpool T-shirts than you can shake a chimichanga at, is gearing up for the release of the Ryan Reynolds film by unveiling even more items, like a stylish side-zip jacket (above), an aloha shirt, a varsity jacket (because why not?) and, yes, a “Yay, Tacos!” tee.
Although the marketing for the upcoming Deadpool effort has gotten imaginative, this burglary in Florida probably isn’t part of Fox’s campaign.
The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is on the hunt for two men dressed as the Marvel antihero who broke into a gas station in Cocoa, Florida, early Jan. 7 and removed an ATM. However, as the images below show, these were Mercs with Mouths, not with a brains.
Based on the design from the upcoming film starring Ryan Reynolds, the figure boasts 30 points of articulation, a meticulously tailored costume with weathering effects, a new head sculpt with five interchangeable eye pieces (each with a different expression), 12 interchangeable palms, the antihero’s signature pistols and katanas (plus a dagger and two shurikens), and a display stand.
Deadpool’s race through a massive warehouse atop a pint-sized chimichanga truck, doing doughnuts as he goes, ends about as well as can be expected in this cute animated teaser for Marvel Collector Corps.
It’s the perfect promo for the Deadpool-focused February box, perfectly timed to coincide with the release of the eagerly awaited Ryan Reynolds movie.
Toy Soul 2015 is proving to be a treat for collectors, even if they aren’t in Hong Kong. Following the first look at 1/6th-scale figures from Deadpool and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Hot Toys has premiered the prototypes for its line of Captain America: Civil War collectibles.
No sooner did Hot Toys announce its new Deadpool 1/6th-scale action figure, based on the upcoming film, than the first images of the collectible surfaced from Toy Soul 2015, which just kicked off in Hong Kong.
Although no additional information accompanies the images, they do allow fans to scrutinize the details and at least some of the accessories — a pistol, belt, sword and scabbard for starters — and dream a little. And maybe salivate.
Although the beats aren’t as much sick as they are headache-inducing, this Deadpool vs. Boba Fett edition of “Epic Rap Battles of History” delivers some good lines, some ranging from funny to borderline devastating.
If only Peter Parker’s painful-to-watch dance scene had instead been a dance-off against Deadpool, Spider-Man 3 might’ve been an entirely different movie. There still would’ve been too many villains, and it still would’ve starred Tobey Maguire, but, hey, you can’t win them all.
Famed Deadpool cosplayer D-Piddy, the subject of a new profile, battles Spider-Man the best way he knows how — with dance! — in this video that sees them go toe to toe, and hip to hip, on a Los Angeles rooftop. At least until things get uncomfortable …
More than six months after it first teased the statue, Kotobukiya has official revealed the next addition to its Marvel Bishoujo line: Lady Deadpool.
Arriving in February, Earth-3010’s version of the Merc with a Mouth stands 9.5 inches tall comes complete with two interchangeable heads (one with the mask and one without, revealing the face of Wanda Wilson beneath) and two interchangeable hands (one holding the mask).
Welcome to Store Tour, ROBOT 6’s weekly exploration of comics shops, and the people who run them. Each Sunday we feature a different store, and also get to know the person behind the register.
This week’s store is Star Comics, located at 2014 34th St. in Lubbock, Texas. We spoke with owner Robert Mora.
One is a moral man who grapples with inner darkness, and outer zombies, between shouts of “Carl!” The other is an unstable mercenary who toys with the fourth wall, and his opponents, between cries of “Chimichanga!” A confrontation between the two was probably inevitable because … well, why not.
That’s probably giving a little too much thought to this video mashup, which pits Rick Grimes against Deadpool using footage from AMC’s The Walking Dead and the red-band trailer for the Ryan Reynolds film (so, yeah, “NSFW” and all of that).
For its latest Comic-Con International exclusive, Gentle Giant imagined what it might’ve been like had Deadpool been around in 1984 for Marvel’s original Secret Wars. And then it thought even bigger.
The new addition to the company’s line of retro-style Secret Wars jumbo figures, the wise-crackin’ Merc With a Mouth stands 12 inches tall. Made from vinyl and ABS plastic, the figure features five points of articulation — hey, it’s based on the old Mattel seris — and comes equipped with a gun.
