Marvel Reveals Plans For “Phase 2″ @ SDCC

In case you haven’t heard already, the Marvel Studios panel laid out plans for phase 2 of their long-reaching Cinematic Universe. The titles for the previously announced Thor and Captain America sequels were welcome additions after the highly original Iron Man 3. Thor The Dark World and Captain America The Winter Soldier were certainly not the biggest news though as Kevin Feige confirmed the rumours of a Guardians Of The Galaxy movie and even brought the first piece of concept art from the movie to give fans an idea of the design direction for the space focused film.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Concept Art

If LEGO continues to make sets based on the MCU, these films could offer a lot of new material and Guardians alone has the potential for great space sets and very unique minifigs (Rocket Raccoon!). Most interestingly though, may have been Edgar Wright’s inclusion in the panel, cementing the long in development Ant Man movie. Wright screened a test FX reel for the fans and while no formal announcement of release date or casting were made, I’m glad to see this movie is still on track and possibly included in the phase leading to the Avengers sequel. You can read more on Marvel.com and just about every other comic based site which are now frothing at the mouth, like ComicBookMovie.com who managed to get some shots of the newest suit in Tony Stark’s closet. I’ve stuck Iron Man at the end of this post because I’m just not a fan of this look, I’m much more interested in the Iron Patriot suit and some other plot rumours floating around about the other films. *cough* Falcon *cough*

This new suit can be sumed up in the best comment I’ve seen thus far: “Too much mustard.”

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.

Exclusive Fig Is Black Suit Spider-man

SDCC 2012 Exclusive Black Suit Spider-man

Ace has gotten confirmation of what many Spidey fans already assumed by looking at the above SDCC Exclusive, that it is not Venom, but instead the Black Suited Spider-man first introduced in 1984’s Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars. Badge scanning for these exclusive figs ends at noon, so if you’re planning on hitting up the booth GET THERE FAST! It being a variant Spidey suit makes it even more desirable in my book, but fret not Venom fans as the word at the booth is Spidey’s symbiote nemesis will be revealed today as part of next years Marvel line-up. Stay tuned for more updates as Ace will be uploading more pictures soon.

LEGO The Hobbit Sets Teased

Update: Hi-res image found in our flickr account.

79003 Minifigures

The Hollywood Reporter has the first scoop on LEGO’s upcoming The Hobbit sets. The only image so far (above) reveals Gandalf, Dwalin, Bombur, Bofur, Bilbo and Balin. Gandalf appears to be a repeat of the minifig featured in 9469 Gandalf Arrives and the dwarf Balin gets a whole new look from his rather pale first appearance in 9473 The Mines of Moria. The article suggests LEGO will be revealing more during SDCC later this week, so stay tuned!
