Official Character Poster Of ” The Vision” From “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”
Just minutes after the last Marvel Mash-Up article came out, Disney and Marvel released the official character poster for “The Vision” in “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” and he looks fantastic! Trust me on this one, I hear he steals the movie, just like Hulk did to the original “Avengers: Movie.”
“The Incredible Hulk” Graces The Cover Of Rolling Stone Magazine
The Hulk is on this months issue of Rolling Stone mostly to promote “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” but it really looks like he is ready for a solo movie. I’ve been watching some interviews with Joss Whedon and Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and they both seem to hint that a solo movie for the Hulk is in the works.
Ruffalo was asked by IGN about the future of the Hulk:
Mark Ruffalo: “I think there’s a lot of places to go with him [Hulk].”
Scarlett Johansson: “Like where?”
Ruffalo: “Well he’s going to space. Yeah, I mean there’s some talk of maybe Planet Hulk.”
Here is a synopsis of the Planet Hulk comic book series:
The Illuminati (a group consisting of Tony Stark, Reed Richards, Black Bolt, Namor, and Dr. Stephen Strange) meet to discuss the recent destruction of Hulk and how to deal with him. The decision to deposit Hulk on a peaceful uninhabited planet is interrupted by a wormhole, placing the savage Hulk on the violent planet Sakaar.
The green skinned warrior quickly bonds with others like him in a gladiator arena, as well as creates an enemy of Red King. Through his conflicts and troubles Hulk unites a planet by killing the tyrant king, while finding a kindred spirit and falls in love with the warrior Caiera. Hulk, the savior of the people, is crowned king with Caiera as his queen. The peace does not last for the green goliath however, but instead leads to the destruction of Sakaar and the terribly destructive World War Hulk.
That would be great if the went with a movie adapation of “Planet Hulk.” If that is the case, it would probably be 5% Bruce Banner and 95% Hulk in the movie.
Marvel Releases Covers For The “Star Wars” Movie Adaptions
Marvel has revealed the covers for all three of the “Star Wars” Original Trilogy comic book adaptions drawn by artist Adi Granov.
These issues are actually reprints of the original “Star Wars” comic book series that was released back in 1977. Marvel added a nice touch be retouching all of the panels and they look really nice.
“Spider-Man” In The Marvel Cinematic Universe Update
Kevin Feige, the heard of Marvel Entertainment, recently spoke with Collider and revealed some new information, as well as confirmed previous speculation, about the new “Spider-Man” who will make his debut in “Captain America: Civil War”:
- Spider-Man will be Peter Parker, not Miles Morales, who is currently the Ultimate Spider-Man in the comics.
- No origin story. Feige said, “There is a young kid [already] running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU, you just don’t know it yet.”
- Spider-Man will get a new costume. It will be classic Spider-Man but not a costume we have ever seen before on screen.
- Peter will be 15-16 years old and he will be a high school student.
Personally, I would love for Spider-Man’s costume to be inspired by Todd Mcfarlane’s version, which was inspired by the very earliest versions of Spider-Man in the comics. Todd added really big bug eyes to the costume and brought back the webbing under his armpits. He also brought us those crazy detailed webs from his web shooters. Always loved this version:
“Captain Marvel” Was Originally Going To Be In” Avengers: Age Of Ultron” But Her Scene Was Cut And Replaced By “Scarlet Witch” And Her New Costume
Kevin Feige explains just how close it was that Captain Marvel was going to appear in “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” and he explains why her scene was cut:
There were drafts that maybe people somehow got their hands on and read early on that included some characters – maybe others, but certainly one, which is why it’s dangerous to read scripts early on, and talk about them early on…
[Captain Marvel] was in a draft. But to me, it would have done that character a disservice, to meet her fully formed, in a costume and part of the Avengers already when 99% of the audience would go, ‘Who is that?’ It’s just not the way we’ve done it before.
Thanos is the good ‘Who’s that,’ because he’s clearly a bad guy, for comic fans he represents a specific storyline, you can get the buzz started from fans to non-fans with that cameo – as opposed to a title character, who deserves their own story. Even Black Widow you don’t meet in the last two seconds of Iron Man 2 wearing her costume – you evolve that going forward.
The way we reveal Scarlet Witch [in costume] at the end of the movie? Those were Captain Marvel plate shots. Joss said, ‘We’ll cast her later!’ And I said, ‘Yeah Joss, we’ll cast her later.’ [Whispers to an invisible associate who isn’t Joss] ‘We’re not putting her in there!’
Finally Joss was like ‘Let’s use those plates to let Scarlet Witch fly into frame, give her a big entrance?’ And that makes sense – she’s come to their side, and she deserves the cool intro, which will feed into another movie we start shooting in a few weeks.
