hot toys little groot

We still can’t get enough of Baby Groot, especially when the Baby Groot in question is this adorable (and super accurate) version by Hot Toys.

While this version doesn’t actually dance, it is a fantastic replica. The 1/4 Scale Little Groot Collectible features 3 interchangeable head sculpts, movable arms, and a moveable body.

Head after the break to see more of this super cute collectible.

Thanks to the Sony leaks, we know that Sony and Marvel attempted to work out a deal to bring Spider-Man back to the MCU for various projects including Captain America: Civil War. Unfortunately, hose negotiations broke down—but all may not be lost. Latino Review is reporting that the deal is very much alive in the wake of the hack (and the poor performance of recent Spider-Man films on Sony’s watch).

According to Kel over at Latino Review:

IF the Marvel/Sony deal were to go forward, Andrew Garfield would no longer be Peter Parker and any baggage from existing films, Raimi or Webb, would be non-canonical, Marvel doesn’t want any part of those films. The idea is that the Spider-Man romance movie has been played out over five installments, so any new Spider-Man films would focus on the difficulties of being a teenager and a superhero with a romance side-story, not the film’s focus. Marvel also thinks that the origin story is well-trodden territory, so any Spider-Man movies under this deal would begin with Peter Parker already leading a dual life. Spider-Man making his debut in Captain America: Civil War is still a distinct possibility and would serve as the character’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But as of now Spider-Man will NOT be in Civil War. I was told that they have a script nailed down.

So, if the deal works out and Spider-Man goes back to Marvel, we basically hit the ground running with a lead actor. He’s already got the double life and he’s already dating Mary Jane – both of which allow for more time for Spider-Man to just be Spider-Man.

Granted nothing may come of this, but the fact is that Sony doesn’t have much leverage left. It makes sense for them to profit while Marvel does the heavy lifting to get the character back on track.

What do you think?

Pretty much everyone loved Guardians of the Galaxy, including the folks at Honest Trailers, but they still find plenty to pick on (*cough* Space Avengers *cough*). It doesn’t matter though because Marvel owns us and we’ll see whatever they slap their logo on.

Star_Wars_1_Cassaday_cov-690x1024

Marvel Comics’ return to the Star Wars universe begins on January 14th 2015. The license to publish Star Wars comics was in the hands of Dark Horse Comics but that changed once Disney (Marvel’s parent company) purchased Lucasfilm.

I expected the launch of Marvel’s Star Wars series to be big, but it could be huge. ComicBook.com reports that Star Wars #1 will sell over a million copies when it hits shelves on January 15th. If their information is true, that would make Star Wars #1 the best selling comic in the last 20 years by a wide margin. The Force is with Marvel.

Yesterday was National Cat Day (yeah, apparently it’s a thing), and Marvel showed their love for felines everywhere by sharing some delightful superheroes-as-cats art. The style of the illustrations by Jenny Parks is similar to the Doctor Mew portraits she did earlier this year. They feature Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Iron Man.

More meowtastic cat superhero art after the break.
