Once again, Hot Toys has produced a figure that is so detailed that it might actually have a soul. Seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if this 1/6th scale Captain America figure from The Avengers: Age Of Ultron came to life during a thunderstorm. From Hot Toys:

The movie-accurate Captain America Collectible Figure is specially crafted based on the image of Chris Evans as Captain America/Steve Rogers in Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a newly painted helmeted head sculpt, a newly painted Steve Rogers head sculpt, finely tailored Captain America suit, magnetic metal Captain America shield with retractable handles, and a specially designed figure stand.

Odds are the figure will be available for pre-order at Sideshow Collectibles in the coming days but, in the meantime, check out more pics after the break…

Hey, now! It looks like Captain… um… Iron Hulk’s gonna save… yeah… Thor… you know what? I give up. I’m not sure who’s coming to save the day. While the latest wave of “Hero Mashers” toys from Hasbro might seem a bit confusing at first, they’re actually pretty cool.

The deal here is that Avengers action figures come apart, which means that you can break them down and build entirely new heroes from all the loose bits! The above pic shows what a total mash-up creation would look like, but after the break you can check out the individual figures.

News of a Captain Marvel movie pretty much had the nerdverse over the moon, but that didn’t stop everyone from asking for a Black Widow movie, too. Comics writer Nathan Edmondson has added to the clamor by writing a 6-page script for the film.

Emondson has been writing the Black Widow series throughout 2014, and when he caught wind of #BlackWidowMovie he decided that the best way to show his support was to write an opener for the non-existent film. The script looks absolutely amazing and you can just imagine Scarlett Johansson on the big screen delivering the lines and kicking butt. Now, to get the film green-lighted. Who do we see about that?

See his tweet and read an excerpt from the script after the break.

Loki

It’s been a busy few weeks for Marvel. The Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer managed to leak ahead of its planned Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debut, Robert Downey, Jr. was confirmed as having a major role in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, and they revealed all the details on their phase three films. Now, actor Idris Elba has dropped more news in an interview in The Telegraph saying:

“I’m in [Avengers 2]… and I’m doing a scene with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston.”

Okay, hold up a second. If he’s doing a scene with Hiddleston then that means we’re getting more Loki despite Joss Whedon and Hiddleston saying flat out that Loki wasn’t going to be in the film.  It could be just a momentary thing, most likely a post-credits scene. Either way, we’re excited.

I’m sure many of you agree that the teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron is both awesome and creepy. However, the minds behind How It Should Have Ended have made it even creepier (and really funny).

One of the grossest feelings in the world is getting into a car that’s been soaking in the sunlight all day. No one likes sitting in an oven, not even for a couple of minutes. ThinkGeek has three sunshade solutions to help keep your vehicle cool, and the designs feature Spider-Man, Batman, and the Avengers. The windshield shades block out UV rays and proclaim your geekiness to passersby so they’re really cool in two senses of the word.

See the other styles after the break.

Loki – Norse god of mischief, lies and evil – is a sympathetic yet clear villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, arranging for people to die and war to erupt just to ruin his brother’s coronation, later robbing people of free will as he attempted planet-wide genocide. But we still love seeing him in action and a large part of the credit goes to Tom Hiddleston, a superb actor and all-around sweet guy. This Friday, Joss Whedon: The Biography will be released and it includes an e-mail exchange between Hiddleston and the director/screenwriter of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. The actor was so overjoyed at Loki’s role in the script for Marvel’s The Avengers that he was compelled to write a thank you letter.

The letters can be read after the break.
