Winter Is Coming In The New Captain America Trailer

Marvel has a lot hanging on their box office this year. With RDJ getting too expensive to sustain further solo Iron Man films (phew), they need to be able to create new possible mini franchises like Guardians Of The Galaxy and prove that the other Avengers can maintain profitable film series as well and not end up as one offs if at all possible. Thor: The Dark World proved to be a successful follow up with critics liking it less, while still for the most part liking it, while the general audience liked it more. It slipped into last place for the top ten grossing films of 2013 bookended by IM3 in the top spot.

It’s all on Cap now. The studio is optimistic having already signed The Winter Soldier’s directors on for the third film and hiring screenwriters for a third Thor outing. Some others in the know have had high praise of what they’ve seen of the film as well. Ed Brubaker, creator of the Winter Soldier and one of the best writers to ever work on Captain America, has had nothing but praise for it saying he was “blown away” by the script a few months back.

I’m hopeful audiences will continue to embrace the MCU’s take on these characters (Falcon aaaaaand Batroc?! Boom!) and are ready for a bit of cloak & dagger mixed in with their big screen comic book heroes. I for one can not wait.

Review: 76004 Spider-man: Spider Cycle Chase

76004 Overview

I’ve said before that I’m no real fan of the Ultimate Spider-man cartoon, but I’m a huge Spider-man fan in general. Seeing last year’s Spidey set got me quite excited, but in the end it failed to impress me and was a real disappointment. 2013 promised two new Spider-man sets in the first half and this one in particular caught my eye the right off, but I’ve been hurt before. I needed a set to come along and make me feel again.

Preferably one with Nick Fury.

Sneak Peak @ Next Years LEGO Super Hero Lineup

Next Years DC Super Heroes RevealedNext Years DC Super Heroes Revealed 2

I hope these pics will satisfy some of the comic fans out there who’ve been wishing certain figs would pop up asap!
First up on the DC side we have Mister Freeze, Aquaman, a white suited Batman, Bane, Commissioner Gordon with a SWAT flack jacket, hooded Robin, Scarecrow, Arkham jumpsuit Joker, Penguin and what I believe is Harley Quinn in a nurse disquise. I believe these may or may not be based at least in part on the popular Arkham Asylum/City games that I have not had the pleasure to play, though Gordon and Bane to look like they may be based on their movie counterparts.

Next up on the Marvel side we have Spider-man, Nick Fury (Finally!), Venom, Nova, J. Jonah Jameson, Victor Von Doom and I have no idea who the red winged guy is. Human Fly? A new character from the Ultimate Spider-man cartoon? Hopefully Ace can shed some light on him if no one else can.

Seems like a nice line up to me and I’m betting there will be some others who will pop up sooner or later. Check back tonight as Ace hopes to have some more pics of these figures as an update.

Update: Well, that was fast! Ace has secured official pics of all these figs and more and apparently that red winged guy is Beetle. Guess he got an update since his purple suited days in Web Of Spider-man.

The Fast and the Fury-ous

It looks like _Tiler is switching gears. Instead of a classic hot rod ispired Batmobile, he’s gone over to Marvel and built a slick motorcycle for his custom Nick Fury. The bike is neat, but I’ll admit my desire for an official Fury figure is what prompted me to post this. This Fury is simple and well based on the one from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As much as I love the classic comic Nick Fury this one has certainly grown on me in the last few years and I can’t wait for LEGO to hurry up and give us something other than a sneak peak at this master spy.

Review: The Avengers

The Avengers Review

Marvel has been building up to this point since Nick Fury made his first appearance at the end of Iron Man in 2008. There have been ups and downs in the outings of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, but for the most part they’ve been strong offerings with any blemishes (I’m looking at you Iron Man 2) being forgivable when you look at the the franchise as a whole. To say I’ve been excited about this movie would be an understatement, but even more than the characters individual films this one has a lot to prove. So does it live up to the hype, the legacy and this long time comic fans expectations? The short answer is…

Avengers Poster LEGO-ized

Avengers PosterLEGO Avengers Poster

Once again LEGO has chosen to hand out it’s exclusive media to a non-LEGO site and MTV.com posted this LEGO-ized Avengers poster this afternoon. It’s funny because when the original poster was released I thought it looked like a bad photoshop job compared to some excellent fan creations, but in LEGO form it looks great and I really hope they put out that Nick Fury fig soon.

The Avengers Trailer Now Online!

You may or may not have noticed by now, but I really love super heroes so you can bet I’ve been anxiously waiting for this trailer to arrive. It’s just a teaser, but it’s great to see all the effort Marvel has put in to this massive undertaking finally pay off.

Thanks to Walter Boy for the heads up.
