Recently at the Toy Soul Convention in Hong Kong, Hot Toys revealed their premium collectible figures for the upcoming movie “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”.

First Look At Marvel’s “Star Wars: Princess Leia #1”


StarWars.com got their hands on an exclusive preview of the upcoming Marvel Comic, “Star Wars: Pricess Leia #1.” The story takes place right after the movie, “Star Wars: A New Hope” and deals with Leia coming to terms with the destruction of her home planet, Alderaan, by the Death Star in A New Hope. Star Wars: Princess Leia will go on sale in March 2015.


Peter Jackson Will Not Do A Comic Book Movie


Can we get this in writing? Recently while being interviewed by Movie Fone, Peter Jackson was asked about the idea of doing a comic book movie. His response was, “I don’t really like the Hollywood blockbuster bandwagon that exists right now. The industry and the advent of all the technology, has kind of lost its way. It’s become very franchise driven and superhero driven. I’ve never read a comic book in my life so I’m immediately at a disadvantage and I have no interest in that.”

Editorial: The views, opinions and positions expressed by the author do not necessarily reflect the views, opinions or positions of WDW News Today. Now that I got that out of the way, talk about the pot calling the kettle black. First off, I love The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy but the Hobbit Trilogy was a mess. I really don’t want to see Peter Jackson make a superhero movie split into 3 parts where only one movie is needed, I don’t need to see real actors in makeup replaced with awful looking CGI and I don’t need to see unnecessary made up characters have more screen time than the actually character that the book and the movie are based on. The movie was called The Hobbit and he was reduced to a supporting character.

Vin Diesel Teases Again That He Will Be In “Marvel’s Inhumans”


For months Vin Diesel has been teasing that he will be a character in the upcoming Marvel movie, “Inhumans”. Diesel was at it again when he posted the above photo on his Facebook page.


Most people feel the obvious choice that Diesel will play is the Inhumans leader, Black Bolt. What’s interesting is that in Guardians Of The Galaxy, he only uses his voice for the character Groot and if he is cast as Black Bolt in Inhumans, that character does not speak.

Marvel’s Inhumans will be released on November 2nd, 2018.

Sideshow Collectible Corner


The Iron Man Mark XLIII collectible figure is another beautifully designed premium figure designed by Hot Toys and available for sale exclusively at Sideshow Collectibles.  This will be the exact same suit that Iron Man wears in “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”. Iron Man Mark XLIII is priced at $344.99 and expected to ship in August 2015.


That’s it for this week!
