SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD appeared in Ballroom 20 at Comic-Con last Friday, and though they didn’t reveal much about the next season, they did leave the audience with a present: a blooper reel from season one. Watch Coulson, May, Skye, and everyone else flub lines, deal with set malfunctions, and more in the funny gags.

Watch the blooper reel after the break.

Lucy-Lawless

Pardon me while I hyperventilate, but news has broken that the Marvel Universe is gaining a warrior princess. Yep, TV Guide is reporting that Lucy Lawless will be joining Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD but there are no details yet on how many episodes she will appear in or who she’ll be playing.

It’s so amazing to know that she’ll be part of the MCU because that could lead to some really awesome things down the road.

I hope she gets to beat people up and fling a weapon at someone. Maybe have a really cool battlecry.

Not that I’m basing my ideas on anyone. Nooooo.

custom lego 1

LEGO makes Marvel minifigs, but they aren’t good enough for builder autorazr. He wants to make the blocky versions of superheroes and villains as accurate as possible, and to that end he’s designed a ton of minifigs. His gallery features characters like Kraven the Hunter (pictured above), the Runaways, and Hobgoblin with different accessories and in various costumes – he’s already made more than 100 Marvel minifigs. I’m drooling.

See more of his cool work after the break.

SDCC-2014-LEGO-Rocket-Raccoons-Warbird-Sit-Exclusive-e1405536957335

Well, I have some good news and bad news for all of the Rocket Raccoon fans out there. It looks like this year’s exclusive San Diego Comic-Con LEGO Marvel set is a take on Rocket Raccoon’s Warbird, and yes, it comes with a mini-fig Rocket. It’s going to be a limited SDCC 2014 release, and the Rocket minifig comes with an extra special maroon outfit (instead of the orange outfit he wears in the movie).

Here’s the bad news: the set is a limited exclusive, and it’s going to cost $39.99 for a set that only contains 145 pieces. But the worst part is that if you can’t attend SDCC, folks online are already charging up to $180 for this set on eBay. So, you’re going to have to spend some dough to get this LEGO space raccoon.

Check out a close up of Rocket Raccoon after the break…

If you’re allergic to any and all Guardians of the Galaxy spoilers, please stop reading now.

The folks over at Stitch Kingdom have received a full credited cast list for the upcoming Marvel film. The information reveals Stan Lee, Rob Zombie, James Gunn, and Nathan Fillion will have appearances:

Stan Lee will have his customary cameo, this time as the ‘Xandarian Ladies’ Man;’ browncoat favorite Nathan Fillion will be dolled up as ‘Monstrous Inmate;’ musician Rob Zombie lends his voice as the ‘Ravager Navigator Voice;’ and writer/director James Gunn himself will appear in the film as one of the ‘Maskless Sakaaran.’

The credits also show that they’ll be more animals than just Rocket Raccoon. Cosmo will be in the film (played by actor Fred the dog), and Howard the Duck could appear. Or not. The end titles have a credit for Howard the Duck co-creators Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik. Stitch Kingdom guesses the character might be referenced as part of Peter Quill’s childhood.

marvel women

Yesterday, we unveiled a list of some DC Comics women who we believe have potential that should really be explored. Now we’re looking at ladies of the Marvel Comics universe. Obviously, there are already some powerful female superheroes such as Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and several members of the Avengers and X-teams. But there are still other women, good and evil, who seem to be stuck on the sidelines and really shouldn’t be.

Check out the list after the break…

thor woman

You read that right. Marvel revealed the news today on ABC’s The View (we can discuss that marketing choice another time) that Thor will be a woman. As series writer Jason Aaron said in the press release, “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”

Marvel also released new art to give us a look at the new Thor and I gotta say, she looks bad ass.

Head after the break to read the full press release and see additional art.

Tired of visiting those boring, run-of-the-mill tourist destinations on Earth? Well, then you should probably check out Galaxy Getaways, It’s Marvel’s new travel agency that takes adventurers deep into space to visit the locales featured in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy.

You can visit Xandar, Morag and Knowhere, and the Galaxy Getaways’ site features maps and recommendations regarding what to do and where to eat at each of the destinations (for instance, you can visit Gluborg’s, which was the first restaurant in the whole galaxy to receive five stars!)

However, if you can’t quite afford to fly off world, not to worry, you can just wait until August 1st when Guardians comes out and check out all those locales from the comfort of your favorite movie theater. I don’t know about you, but I’m saving up to go and visit Gluborg’s–I can’t wait to stuff myself silly on interstellar appetizers. Yum!

Watch the Galaxy Getaways promo after the break…

Mash-ups are everywhere and you know there are days you look at a video and assume it’s nothing special.

Well, that’s not the case here. YouTuber Ross Thompson created a new trailer for Star Wars using the Guardian’s Of The Galaxy trailer as a template and it is brilliant.

It’s good, I promise. Watch it after the break…

The rumors have been flying about Nathan Fillion possibly making a Guardians Of The Galaxy cameo for a while now—some of which even speculate that Fillion would play Nova Prime aka Richard Rider.

Well, we have good news and possibly bummer news. James Gunn went on record that, yes, our favorite captain will have a small cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy but he officially put the kibosh on the Nova Prime rumor.

You can see his tweets after the break.
