Make Connect 4, not Civil War.
The image above appears to be part of a mocumentary that was put together by Ragnarok director Taika Waititi that delighted attendees at SDCC. It answers the question that so many fans have been asking: What was Thor doing during Civil War?
Well, he got an apartment in Australia with some random dude named Daryl. Hijinks ensued. Word is that the video was hilarious—hopefully it will be released online sometime in the near future.
Marvel has made good on its proposal to create a 13-foot-tall Captain America statue for the character’s 75th anniversary.
As previously reported, the statue is slated to debut at Marvel’s booth during San Diego Comic-Con before being shipped to Brooklyn, where it will be unveiled in Prospect Park on August 10th. After a month on display, the statue will reportedly be moved to the Barclays Center before heading to Sunset Park in October.
As if this isn’t enough, Entertainment Weekly reports that a special 75th anniversary comic will also be released at Comic-Con which depicts Captain America kicking it with the bronze representation.

Forget ballpits, I wanna play in a Tsum Tsum pit!

Over the weekend you may have heard that Anna Kendrick is aware of Squirrel Girl and thinks she could handle the part.
“My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her],” she told Net A Porter. “I don’t know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel!”
Clearly, Anna Kendrick’s brother is a visionary. The majority of the internet appeared to agree with this casting choice despite the fact that the odds of a Squirrel Girl movie actually happening are pretty slim. Then again, the success of Deadpool has proven that wacky can work.
Even if it never happens, fans can get a better idea of what Doreen Green could look like on the big screen thanks to BossLogic’s mockup below. [click to continue…]
So why exactly did artist 4steex draw this fan art series of Marvel characters as owls? You know, I have no idea. But I can tell you this for a fact: “The Owlvengers” are pretty darn adorable. They’re a real (wait for it) hoot, wouldn’t you say? I’ll see myself out.

LEGO artist The Deathly Halliwell crafted his own LEGO-version of the Infinity Gauntlet and we can only hope that he can be trusted with the power. Otherwise, Lego could rain down from the sky to clog throats, destroy our feet and eventually bury us all.
Halliwell also added Thanos to the mix and used LifeLites to recreate the glowing Infinity Gems and add appropriate menace to Thanos’ eyes.
We recently saw an anime spin on Captain America: Civil War and this amazing series by NeoArtCorE is in the same realm only with a more realistic style.
Check out the entire series below (and yes he does take commissions). [click to continue…]
Marvel has released a preview of the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens comic adaptation, and this 6-issue limited series by writer Chuck Wendig (Star Wars: Aftermath) and artist Luke Ross (Hercules) sure is pretty.
The preview gives us a look at a couple pages, the cover by Esad Ribic and different variant covers by Esad Ribic, Joe Quesada, Phil Noto, and John Cassaday. The Quesada variant already has a special place in my heart.
I’m definitely going to put this on my pull list. What about you? Check out more pics after the break…
I’ve never liked the expression “They’ve got too much time on their hands.” It’s often said in a dismissive, snide way about people who have chosen to use their free time to, I don’t know, catalog every Doctor Who story in chronological order, or build extensive detailed replicas of movie props that only appear on screen for a few seconds. It is, at its core, a term that is used to shoot down creative endeavors.
The fact is, we all have the exact same amount of time during our day. We just prioritize different things. Some people collate spreadsheets and walk their dog. Others build customized LEGO versions of each and every Iron Man suit Tony Stark has ever worn.
That’s what LEGO enthusiast Minh Pham has done – he’s built a LEGO laboratory space worthy of Mr. Stark and populated it with insanely detailed variations on the Iron Man suit as they’ve appeared throughout the films, comic books and various TV outings—all custom-made from LEGO minifigs.
It’s an impressive feat, and a superlative use of Pham’s time. Check out more photos below.
