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."
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!
In my recent travels, I discovered that I was a little behind on my PopTaters news... that my friends at PPW Toys had slipped out early details on some new characters to join their ever-growing assortment of pop culture-infused Mr. Potato Head dolls, each crafted under license from Hasbro. With the success of their MARVEL line, which recently added some new members of THE AVENGERS, PPW Toys is unleashing Black Panther (hot off CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR), and the first-ever Benedict Cumberbatch PopTater: DOCTOR STRANGE! Ahead of the November 4 release of the next chapter in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe, this strange addition to the PopTaters collection will hit retail in August. Check it out below, and pre-order now through Entertainment Earth!
The time has come... MARVEL's CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is thrilling audiences worldwide as the MARVEL Cinematic Universe enters a new Phase and heads toward the inevitable coming of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. When it comes to the current battle, audiences are divided between #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan, and while generally I prefer Tony Stark as both a character and a hero, when it comes to the issue at hand in CIVIL WAR, I have to join Steve Rogers' crew... if I were a superhero, I'd want the Government to stay out of my business... much like real life. So with that in mind, THE ROCK FATHER Magazine is celebrating all-things Cap with this Hot Wheels Captain America 75th Anniversary Set - a special collection of eight vehicles released as a Walmart-exclusive. I've got one up for grabs, and they could be yours!
The time has come for MARVEL Studios' CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, and if the buzz is a true indicator - the on-screen debut of Tom Holland as Spider-Man alongside The Avengers is the payoff that fans have waited decades for. Today comes a related surprise courtesy of my friends at Entertainment Earth who are sharing with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine a First Reveal of Hasbro's Captain America Civil War Marvel Legends Spider-Man, Captain America, and Iron Man Set. It contains the first-ever figure of Holland's Spider-Man, and you can get it FIRST if you act fast enough!
