“Iron Man” Promo Art From “Captain America: Civil War”



Heroichollywood was able to get his hands on some leaked promo art of Iron Man from the upcoming movie, “Captain America: Civil War.” This looks very similar to the armor that was in “Age Of Ultron” but there are some slight differences. The chest plate that holds the arc reactor is different as is the helmet.

“X-Men” And “Fantastic Four” Characters Removed From Marvel’s “Secret Wars” Merchandise


Well, it’s not all merchandise but this definitely raises a red flag. Marvel t-shirts being sold at Walmart show that the X-Men and Fantastic Four characters, whose movie rights are owned by Fox, are no longer seen as part of the group. This t-shirts display classic comic book covers from the series, “Secret Wars.” In the above image you can see that members of the X-Men and Fantastic Four are replaced with Thor, Dr. Strange, Black Panther, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Black Bolt (Inhumans). It’s interesting that She-Hulk is in both images because she could have easily been removed. Does this meant that Marvel has plans for She-Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or possibly part of a Netflix series?


This above image shows another classic Secret Wars cover on a t-shirt but again all of the members of the Fantastic Four are removed. The She-Hulk is right next to the Thing and again could have easily been removed but she wasn’t. The Human Torch was removed but his flame still remains. In the left hand corner you can see the Thing being replaced with Wonder Man, Mr. Fantastic is just gone, Wolverine is replaced by Captain America and Storm is replaced by Hawkeye.

Cross is the former protege of Pym, and the man who has taken over his business and plans to use the Ant-Man tech for military purposes.

Scott Derrickson, the director of the upcoming movie “Doctor Strange,” has confirmed that the character “Death” will make her first person in “Doctor Strange” before we see her in “Avengers: Infinity War.”


So why is Death such a significant character? In the comic book series, Infinity Gauntlet, Mistress Death is upset that the balance between life and death has recently not been in her favor. Her solution is to give her ardent follower, Thanos, a chance at rebirth setting him forth with a mission of killing half the life in the universe. Thanos hopes that accomplishing this task given to him by Death that he will earn Death’s affection. He also battles some of Marvel’s greatest heroes as a way to impress Death.
