"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Comic Books, Film
There’s no need to worry that Daredevil action figure will look lonely on your shelf, because the Man Without Fear is about to get a visit from Frank Castle.
The third Marvel entry in Mezco Toyz’s One:12 Collective series, The Punisher comes ready for a fight. Heck, from the looks of him, he’s been through several already.
If there’s one thing Team Cap and Team Iron Man can unite on, it’s these appetizing “Captain America: Civil War”-themed ramen dishes from a restaurant in Japan.
Marvel teamed up with Tokyo’s Ippudo restaurant chain to offer specially-crafted “Civil War” ramen this weekend — as part of a course meal for 4,500 yen ($42 USD) — that serves up individual Team Cap and Team Iron man-inspired dishes, in addition to stamped seaweed, a Super-Soldier Serum Soda, crunchy “Winter Noodles,” a Captain America panna cotta and an exclusive Marvel/Ippudo t-shirt.
One of the breakout stars of Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is swinging into Funko’s Pop! line — and he’s bringing Hawkeye with him.
Oh, and he’s carrying you-know-who’s shield.
#TeamCap and #TeamIronMan just drafted their worst recruits.
In a sketch that honors the Merry Marvel manner of Not Brand Ecch, comedy stars Tony Hale and Adam Pally play a pair of committed Civil War re-enactors hellbent on breathing life into the conflict between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark through a dramatic re-staging of events. The epic, 13-minute send-up eschews fandom at its silliest, delusion at its finest, passions at their strongest, and uniforms at their saggiest.
Forget Team Cap. If this is the kind of swag Stark Industries employees get, we’re Team Iron Man all the way.
It’s the Marvel Stark Industries Messenger Backpack, aka Mark XBody Armor, and it’s without a doubt the coolest piece of superhero-inspired gear since that Captain America Shield Backpack (sorry again, Cap).
Located in Disneytown, just outside the new Shanghai Disneyland, the company’s first anchor store in Asia measures more than 10,700 square feet, and stretches across two floors. Within that space are large-scale models of Disney, Marvel and Pixar characters (it is Disneyland, after all), an enormous dragon, and the 12 Chinese zodiac signs.
A new video lets you (literally) see things from Iron Man’s point-of-view in “Captain America: Civil War.”
Created by Danny Shepherd of ismahawk, a short film titled “First Person: Iron Man” takes a “Hardcore Henry” approach to “Captain America: Civil War” by presenting a completely first-person version of the film
The designers at Valentino must have an appreciation for superheroes, or at least their aesthetic. After first introducing a capsule collection inspired by Wonder Woman, the Italian fashion house has partnered with DC Comics and Marvel for a trio of sneakers based on Batman, Superman and Spider-Man.
While you may not wear your allegiance on your sleeve, you can wear it on your lapel with these retro-style Captain America: Civil War enamel pins from Mondo.
Inspired by the corner boxes on the covers of classic Marvel comics, these 1-inch pins by designer Tom Whalen are available as either an individual Captain America and Iron Man ($10 each), or as two sets of four: “Team Cap,” featuring Captain America, Falcon, Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch, or “Team Iron Man,” featuring Iron Man, War Machine, Vision and Black Panther ($35 each).
Ever since Spider-Man’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe via his shield-stealing scene in that “Captain America: Civil War” teaser, everyone has been talking about Spidey’s new suit.
Civil War breaks out as The Avengers argue over which toppings to put on their pizza in this Pizza Hut ad spot.
At this point, nearly every comic fan owns at least one piece of clothing featuring the work of legendary artists like Jack Kirby or José Luis García-López. But finding apparel that matches the aesthetic of modern comics has been harder to come by.
This week, Marvel and short-run t-shirt site WeLoveFine.com took a step towards rectifying that by starting off a new weekly series of shirts based on modern Marvel cover art. Each Wednesday (natch), the site will post a new series of cover print shirts for purchase at $15 each. The current crop includes Andre Aruajo’s cover to Spidey #5, David Lopez’s Ms. Marvel #6 and a bevy of others.
Check them out on the WeLoveFine.com shop while they last.
If you still have space in your home (and money in your bank account) after buying that life-size Batman, life-size Harley Quinn and life-size Slimer, then a.) wow, nice house, and b.) hold onto that job, because NECA is about to release a life-size Deadpool foam replica.
Unfortunately, there are no final-product images available, but we do have concept art and details, courtesy of BigBadToyStore. Based on Marvel’s Merc with a Mouth (alas, not Ryan Reynolds), this 6-foot replica is made of hand-painted foam rubber and latex.
What better way to celebrate Arbor Day than with a tribute to the greatest of all tree-like aliens (Flora colossus), Groot?
Before anyone grouses about spoilers, remember that LEGO let this very large cat out of the bag months ago with its Captain America: Civil War “Super Hero Airport Battle” set. Hot Toys is merely casting a giant-size spotlight on it.
Yes, it’s a Civil War Cosbaby collectible set that features both a 9-inch Giant Man figure — the largest Cosbaby yet — and a 1.5-inch miniature running Ant-Man. Those are in addition to the regular-size Ant-Man, and its variant. Clearly, Hot Toys likes Ant-Man!
