With MARVEL's CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR coming home on Digital HD, DVD and Blu-ray, it's time to take a look at one of the more recent toys to spawn from the film - the MARVEL Legends 3-Pack featuring Captain America, Iron Man and Spider-man. Crafted by Hasbro and sent to us for review by my allies at Entertainment Earth, this set marks the world action figure debut of Tom Holland's Spider-man, a character that finally entered the MARVEL Cinematic Universe this year, soon to be seen in next summer's SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING. Take a look at the video below for a hands-on look at this set, right here in the Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ™.
"A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Marvel Studios' CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING" - That's the early synopsis given for the first SPIDER-MAN film to officially be a part of the MARVEL Cinematic Universe in a collaboration between MARVEL Studios and SONY. Tonight at San Diego Comic-Con, the film's villain was revealed to be The Vulture, with concept art posted by the team at MARVEL.com. Additionally, some additional credits confirm that Tony Stark (if not Iron Man) will be making an appearance when the film swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
What a big week this has been for MARVEL at San Diego Comic-Con. After unleashing numerous looks at new series' coming to Netflix, and with Hasbro serving-up the first look at new action figures that include the first-ever toy likeness of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, the folks at MARVEL Studios have set free a new trailer for the latest entry into the ever-growing MARVEL Cinematic Universe, right along side a brand-new poster. Get a fresh look at MARVEL's DOCTOR STRANGE below! Indeed, things are gonna geting weird strange, and the whole family is gonna want to see this one in theaters this November, because the impossibilities are endless...
The MARVEL Gods were shining upon San Diego Comic-Con last night, bringing forth so much goodness it could barely be contained. From the new Hasbro action figures featuring DOCTOR STRANGE and SPIDER-MAN to the first trailer for the Netflix Original Series, MARVEL's LUKE CAGE, it looked like a big night... but then it became a HUGE night. Also released were the first trailers for MARVEL's IRON FIST and MARVEL's THE DEFENDERS - a New York superhero team-up that features characters from all of the Netflix/MARVEL collaborations coming together as a team. Let's look at that one first - a teaser set to NIRVANA's "Come As You Are."
I'm completely digging this. With a soundtrack of Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" setting the tone, the trailer for the Netflix Original Series, MARVEL's LUKE CAGE is here, and Mike Colter is busting bad guys (and abusing cars) in the process. Spun-off of MARVEL's JESSICA JONES and eventually followed by MARVEL's IRON FIST (he's in this trailer), the small-screen connection to the MARVEL Cinematic Universe continues to build. Check out the trailer below (not kid-friendly!), and look for all episodes to begin streaming exclusively on Netflix, September 30, 2016.
One of these days I will get to SDCC (likely when I have a personal project to promote again), but in the meantime my friends that are there keep sending me the latest news and official pictures to share with those of you, who like myself, are thousands of miles away. One of the most-anticipated reveals of today comes from the folks at Hasbro, who continue to expand their fantastic line of MARVEL Legends figures. While I've got fresh pics of the latest SPIDER-MAN assortment, of particular interest today is the upcoming DOCTOR STRANGE assortment, which pairs both comic and movie-style figures into one collection. Here's your official look at the first-ever figures of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Karl Mordo!
