For fans who just can’t wait for the Tuesday release of Iron Man 3′s official trailer, you’re in luck. With the release of a 17 second teaser for the film, fanatics now have something to salivate over. But make sure you keep your eyes open at all times. If you blink, you might just miss some crucial details.
While Hellboy may not be a superhero who exists in real life, the man who played him on the big screen is awesome enough to take the time and give a little boy named Zachary the best day ever!
Ron Perlman, who starred in ”Hellboy” and “Hellboy 2″, reprised the role of the red-horned superhero for the Make-A-Wish foundation by getting into costume.
But according to Spectral Motion, the special effects company behind the “Hellboy” look, Zachary didn’t just want to meet his favourite superhero. He also wanted to become Hellboy himself!
So with the help of make-up artists, this super-lucky fan’s dreams were fulfilled.
What a lovely and sweet thing for Ron Perlman to do. In this fickle world, it’s nice to see celebrities performing gestures like these for the fans.
We get a better look at The Lizard in the third trailer for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man.” Not only is Peter Parker (played by Andrew Garfield) fighting small crimes like robberies but he’s got 500 cops to dodge. Oh yea, and then there’s The Lizard.
This is exactly the type of high-action trailer that gets me riled up for the release on June 13. However I agree with some fans that Marvel reveals too many of the movie’s “golden moments.” When an unthreatening robber pulls out a small knife, Peter keels over and says: “You found my weakness. It’s small knives!” Sure it’s hilarious, but the line would have gotten a huge laugh in the theatre — if we hadn’t seen it already.
Other than that the film joins The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers as a superhero movie I’m actually excited to see this summer — especially after the disappointing bombs we’ve seen lately.
Watch the trailer here:
Although cutie Chris Evans has said yes to play Captain America, Emily says she is not interested to play Peggy, Captain America’s love.
This story was reported by PerezHilton however there has been no reason offered by Blunt why she turned down the role.
Sources say that Keira Knightley and Alice Eve are next on Marvel’s list.
Well, this certainly was an interesting week…almost finishing my review on The METROID PRIME TRILOGY, played Arkham Asylum and unlocked tons of achievements and I saw Kanye act like a total douche on TV.
What else is new?? OH how about the MARVEL buyout?? It’s sad eh? But maybe that’s a plus for Marvel, imagine a good CG marvel movie made by Pixar?? Truth be told a lot of us aren’t sure yet since Disney just has this creepy vibe to it. Read more…
Marvel VS Capcom 2, successor to one of the greatest fighting games ever released, is now available on the PS3 over the PlayStation Network or any GameStop location.
It goes for $19.99, and if you get the retail box, not only do you get the download code for the game, but also a month’s subscription to the Marvel online digital comic library. But, there’s only 15,000 copies of the retail box, so don’t wait!
Pretty sweet deal… now where the hell do I find a GameStop?’
That’s right folks, if you’re anything like me (and I guess it’s ok to assume that you are not… or else the world would be a very strange place) than you’re stoked for Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 to finally make it’s way back onto our consoles and our hearts.
Available for download NOW on Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 MS points (later on PSN), Marvel Vs. Capcom has stood the test of time and is back for another round on this generation of consoles (as long as it’s PS3 and Xbox 360). With MvC2 players can now battle online as one of 56 Marvel or Capcom fighters utilizing unblockable attacks, infinite combos, and other frustrating maneuvers that everyone online seems to be able to do except for me.
Want to see who would win in a fight between Wolverine and Ken? Perhaps Spiderman Vs. Megaman? Ohhh how about M. Bison pitted against Magneto? (I don’t know about you but it feels like the Marvel characters would ususually be the ones to come out on top). Forget Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe, this is the real deal here.
The greatest Super Hero action/RPG of all time is back with the world’s largest army of heroes and villains in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, the highly anticipated sequel to 2006’s award-winning Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. Incorporating elements of the acclaimed Marvel Civil War storyline, players must choose their side and team up to battle or interact with returning favorites and all-new characters, including Spider-Man, Wolverine, Hulk, Iron Man, Deadpool, Venom, Green Goblin, Iron Fist and Captain America, whose powers can be combined to unleash astonishing new attacks. Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 engages players in co-operative multiplayer through graphically rich and destructive real-world environments, and allows players to strengthen their ultimate Super Hero dream teams by teaming up to unleash astonishing fusions of super-powers.
Check out some photos from the game.
That’s right boys and girls, men and women; My favourite (and quite possibly some of yours as well) arcade fighter Marvel vs. Capcom 2 has finally decided on a solid date to release their awesomeness to the downloadable console world. Only July 29th, 2009 players from AROUND THE WORLD will have the opportunity to pit the Hulk against Ryu, Spiderman against Megaman and pretty much have one of the most out-there battles I can think of pitting… well, Marvel characters vs. Capcom characters… part 2.
As mentioned above, the release date to download Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on Xbox Live Arcade is July 29th globally and will set you back 1,200 MS points. This release is part of Microsoft’s “Summer of Arcade” promotion and I don’t know about you but I plan on getting alot of online play out of this title when it finally lands.
Unfortunately there is still no date for the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for the PlayStation Network, however we are told it is coming soon.
Eminem is poised to release his first new album in four years next Tuesday – so what does the multi-platinum selling rapper do for an encore?
According to NY Daily News, he gets himself in a shootout with the popular super hero, “The Punisher,” in the pages of a new comic book. Eminem reportedly admits that he’s a comic book geek.
“He was way more into ‘Punisher’ than I was,” said the “Eminem/The Punisher” writer Fred Van Lente. “I was brought in because of my knowledge of Eminem not ‘Punisher’.”
The first half of the story is printed in the current issue of XXL Magazine, which features a cover of Eminem sporting ‘The Punisher’s’ skull logo painted on his bare chest. Both chapters are available on the Marvel’s Comics’ Web site (marvel.com/eminem).
“The Incredible Hulk” starring Edward Norton came out on top of the box office with $54.5 million, according to Exhibitor Relations estimates today, reports E! News.
“There were a lot of naysayers out there when we said we were doing this,” said Nikki Rocco, Universal’s president of domestic distribution, “The Hulk smashed those naysayers.” And according to E! News, “The Incredible Hulk” accounted for about one-third of all ticket sales for the weekend’s top movies.
But did “The Incredible Hulk” make more money its opening weekend than the 2003 version “Hulk”?
Not quite. Five years ago, “Hulk” opened with stronger numbers by bringing in $62.1 million in its opening weekend.
“Kung Fu Panda” placed second with #34.3 million while M.Night Shyamalan’s latest horror-thriller “The Happening” opened in third place with $30.5 million.
The teenaged superheroes of “Runaways,” a relatively new Marvel Comics saga, are making the leap onto the big screen.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios has teamed up with series co-creator Brian K. Vaughan for the movie adaptation, with Vaughan – who is also a co-producer and writer on ABC’s “Lost” – penning the script.
The comic, which launched in 2002, follows a group of teenagers who run away from their homes after discovering their parents are actually super-villains.
The characters join forces and begin to learn about their parents’ origins, while also discovering their own inherited powers and trying to make up for their parents’ evil deeds.
“Runaways” won critical praise for its honest portrayal of teen issues and received a Harvey Award for best series in 2006.
Marvel is the studio behind the recent silver-screen adaptation of “Iron Man,” which was greeted with commercial and critical success.
“Runaways” isn’t expected to hit theatres for some time, as the studio already has a stack of films in the works through 2011. These include “Iron Man 2″ (April 2010), “The First Avenger: Captain America” (May 2011), “Thor” (June 2010) and “The Avengers” (July 2011).
Marvel also just announced they are developing “Ant-Man” for the big screen.
The people behind “Iron Man” certainly are efficient. A sequel to this weekend’s box office smash already has a release date: April 30, 2010.
Not all of the details are ironed out yet, however. It’s unclear as to what members of the cast will be back and what the plot will be.
“Iron Man” isn’t the only franchise Marvel is excited about. Its film adaptation of “The Avengers” is set for a July 2011 release.
Until they, they have such heavy hitters as “The Incredible Hulk,” Punisher: War Zone,” and”X-Men Origins: Wolverine” to keep the money rolling in.
“Iron Man” has already made more than $200 million worldwide.
Marvel has sharpened up it’s plans for the “Wolverine” movie.
Now with a title – “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” – and a release date – May 1, 2009 – the film will star Hugh Jackman as the brooding mutant.
According to “Variety,” the film’s plot could include a young William Stryker, Sabretooth, Weapon X and perhaps some returning characters. It will be directed by Gavin Hood (“Tsotsi”).
Marvel.com will update fans as soon as further decisions are made.
