deadpool variant

The new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comic was unveiled yesterday and Clark Gregg showed off both the main cover (which has a monkey) and this Deadpool variant with the comment that “Even Deadpool does some carving.”

If only the Deadpool film rights weren’t owned by Fox!

Still, it’s a killer variant and the main cover is pretty cool too. You can check it out after the break.

Marvel brought along the cast of Daredevil to New York Comic Con over the weekend, and they got to talk a bit about the show. They also debuted some of the first official photos of Charlie Cox as Daredevil (they also showed off some Con-only footage too).

In the pic above you can see Charlie as lawyer Matt Murdock. After the break, you can check out a pic of him in his first-gen costume.

Check out some more pictures and details about the show after the break…

GotG animated series

The popular Guardians of the Galaxy is coming to Disney XD as an animated series in 2015. Yeah, I’m excited. Marvel brought a teaser to New York Comic Con in the form of test footage, and it features lots of Rocket Raccoon shooting things. It’s only a few seconds of animation, but I’m already looking forward to seeing more.

Watch the tease after the break.

Dancing Groot toy

We’ve seen a few different official dancing baby Groot toys from Guardians of the Galaxy, but the catch? None of them actually danced until now. Thankfully, Marvel has teamed up with KIDdesigns to make a little Groot that moves and grooves to a version of Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back.” The price is set at a very reasonable $14.99, and yes, dancing baby Groot will be available in December. Just in time for Christmas.

See dancing Groot in action after the break.

Marvel is officially bringing back Squirrel Girl in her very own comic titled Unbeatable Squirrel Girl which will debut this January. The comic will be written by Ryan North who writes the webcomic Dinosaur Comics and has also written many of the Adventure Time comics. Artwork will be by Erica Henderson whose work is shown above and after the break.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the story of Squirrel Girl will begin as she enters college, and if these images are any hint, it looks like it’s going to be a fun, wacky series.

See another picture by Henderson after the break and a variant cover by Art Adams.

Calm down and don’t fret because The Wiivengers are here to save the day. YouTuber James Farr has created a version of The Avengers starring heroes from the Nintendo universe. Link is a great Captain America (I want to see that cosplayed!), Pikachu is Thor, Mario is Iron Man – you get the idea. They have to stop Loki from ruining everything, and the animation is cute and fun.

Watch the mash-up after the break.

7inch Baby Groot Product Shot

Marvel’s teamed up with Dragon Models to get another Baby Groot toy on the market. We’ve seen the cute Funko POP! version, but this seven inch tall pre-assembled model kit is a more screen accurate version of the tiny dancing tree creature. They used official 3D character scans to get everything just right. The bad news that this Baby Groot doesn’t dance, but the good is that the toy is available for pre-order and will ship in November.

Everything’s coming up Deadpool these days and that’s just fine with me, especially when it means we get things like this Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure from Sideshow Collectibles.

This fully articulated figure comes with all sorts of swappable stuff, knives, guns, and even Big Boomin’ Balls. But, my favorite feature is the optional plug-in Word Bubbles, complete with a sheet of “Explicit Thoughts and Witty Words”.

Head after the break to see pictures and a full description.

Now that the Deadpool movie has been greenlit, it’s time to start the rampant speculation on all sorts of things.

In this case, it’s the question of whether or not Deadpool will get a PG-13 rating or if it will get the R rating that many fans would expect.

The rumor originated with this comment from the Schmoes Know podcast:

“I heard from the director [Tim Miller] that they finally figured out the script, and it was right before this was announced, that they figured out, and you guys are all going to hate this, that they figured out how to make it PG-13 and therefore not lose its soul – that’s a quote – of the script so they can make it.”

Keep in mind that a PG-13 rating allows for quite a bit of violence these days, so it might still be possible to make a Deadpool movie that won’t “lose it’s soul”. And, let’s be honest, it’s highly unlikely that Marvel would ever risk limiting the audience with an R rating. However, I have a feeling that the fan world must have spoken its mind on the news and rather loudly, because Deadpool writer/producer Rhett Reese weighed in on Twitter.

Check it out after the break.

You might think all of the movies featuring Marvel characters have their own, unique endings. You’d be wrong. Sure, the characters and locations may change, but in many cases, the same thing happens every single time.
