I’ll admit that I’ve been on the fence about X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but this new trailer has rekindled a spark of hope.

I LOVE the moment between Mystique and Wolverine. It seems like we’re going to get some real interaction between the characters with our dose of insane action and cool special effects.

Check it out after the break and enjoy.

winter soldier cap

Marvel hides plenty of easter eggs in their films whether it be names referenced in conversations or nods to other characters. For example, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Black Widow wears a tiny arrow necklace – presumably because she’s in a relationship with Hawkeye. That’s just one of many treasures, and YouTube user MrSundayMovies has rounded up several more in a video recap.

It gets a little ridiculous towards the end, but it’s definitely worth watching. And obviously, there are spoilers for the film so don’t watch it if you haven’t seen the movie yet.

Watch the video after the break.

guardians-of-the-galaxy-top

Before we gaze upon full body photos of the Guardians of the Galaxy team, can we just take a moment to appreciate how awesome it is that a movie starring a weapon-wielding raccoon and a talking tree is getting made? Even though we’ve seen a trailer, it still feels like Marvel is playing a trick.

If so, they’re investing a whole lot of money into it. They’ve just released a series of high quality images showing off the team on white backgrounds. They’re begging to be Photoshopped, and I shall eagerly keep an eye on the internet for the inevitable Rocket Raccoon memes.

Check out the rest of the team after the break.

papercraft elsa

As much as I love buying prints and posters, I’m always on the lookout for different kinds of art to put on my walls. I like variety, and these incredible papercraft designs by The Paper Pony blew me away! The Etsy shop features intricate paper art inside shadowboxes, and they are highly detailed and so very, very pretty. I especially love the use of different textures. Their work features characters from Frozen, Game of Thrones (Daenerys and her dragons!), Doctor Who, Legend of Zelda, and many others. You can even commission a design if you don’t see your favorite franchise represented in their shop.

Each piece is made by hand so there will be slight variations – which I think makes this art even cooler. Turnaround time is 3-4 weeks.

Check out more beautiful papercraft shadowboxes after the break.

black widow  hot toys 1

Hot Toys is known for their ability to create impressive sculpted 1/6th scale figures that look exactly like characters we’ve seen on screen. I’m pretty sure they use magic, and they’ve definitely performed some sort of spell with their new Black Widow figure. This version of the character is from the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier and looks exactly like Scarlet Johansson. Like, to a disturbing degree.

She apparently has a newly developed head sculpt with real fabric hair. As you’ll be able to see in the photos, every detail of her uniform looks perfect (that belt!), and she comes with replaceable hands and accessories. I want to put her on my nightstand to keep me safe while I sleep.

More photos of the premium figure after the break.

Of course, we have yet to see a Black Widow movie from Marvel—just sayin’. Whether Elektra should count is up to you.

IRON-MAN-3-Barack-Obama-Poster

President Obama recently announced a new military initiative that should be of interest to us all. Specifically, he said “We’re building Iron Man”.

Sure, he tried to downplay it after he said it. I’m sure it just slipped out and then he had to cover, but we have a theory that there’s more going on here than the President may be suggesting.

Head after the break for the evidence.

Got 15 seconds? Then you have time to check out a sneak peek of the Guardians of the Galaxy. The full trailer will air tonight on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, but this snippet is enough to make you do a Muppet-like flail and to ensure you’ll be paying attention later. You get a glimpse of Groot and Rocket Raccoon and the Star-Lord’s ship and all the things – even the first look at Karen Gillan as Nebula.

Watch and drool after the break.

star wars and marvel

As I was scrolling through Twitter last night, I noticed a wonderful conversation: @StarWars and @Marvel were having an entertaining back and forth. Because that’s the kind of world we live in now. It all began with Star Wars opening up the door with a #AskStarWars Twitter event. Marvel went right for the obvious and asked if they could borrow some lightsabers. Star Wars agreed but only if they could borrow Mjölnir.

That sparked some of the geekiest banter Twitter has seen this side of the galaxy far, far away. Applause for the folks running those acccounts.

See more of the tweets after the break.

ant-man_01

When Paul Rudd was announced for Ant-Man, many people wondered who he’s be playing. Hank Pym or Scott Lang?

We have our answer. Michael Douglas is joining the cast as Hank Pym, which means Rudd will be Scott Lang.

Here’s part of the statement from Marvel.com:

“With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves,” said Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige on the company’s website, Marvel.com. “We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn’t be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life.”

So, now we know. What do you think?
