In honor of Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday, actor Evangeline Lilly shared the first picture of her in costume as the Wasp for the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp sequel! She looks pretty great!
I like the costume, though I think it could use a bit more color. Ant-Man is probably my favorite movie superhero costume, and its red coloring really helps it to stand out. Wasp is just black with some tiny bits of color and piping. The costume could use a touch more pizzazz, you know what I’m saying?
Still, looks great! Can’t wait for Ant-Man and the Wasp!
Surprise! The first teaser trailer for Thor 3: Ragnarok was released online today, and it’s utterly delightful!
Funny, charming, full of character and adventure; this movie looks phenomenal! Love Thor, love the Hulk, love the looks at Loki and Hela — though Jeff Goldblum looks ridiculous.
Also, at 1:05 in the trailer, I’m pretty sure that’s the Executioner with a pair of machine guns. And I’m pretty sure that means we’re getting Gjallerbru. So holy heck, you guys!
Thor: Ragnarok looks amazing!
Hear me out on this one. I’m not a toy critic. This isn’t a review. I’m just a guy who likes giggling at the weird details of the world. And the Detroit Steel LEGO set definitely counts. I’ve been obsessing about this toy since it was first announced, and since I had the day off from work on Monday, I decided to go out and pick it up at Walmart. Wasn’t too expensive, and it actually adds to the collection of LEGO superhero mech-suits I’ve been putting together.
So it’s a fine LEGO set. No complaints. Fun to build. Nice to have.
But the devil is in the details. I would love to know the thought process that went into putting this LEGO set together and picking out all the individual elements. None of them go together, either in comic, film or television. It’s a weird mishmash of ideas. How does that get designed?
Granted, none of this matters and I’m only poking at air. Who cares that the new LEGO set doesn’t hold up to rigorous comic book scrutiny? I can almost guarantee this article will not have any significant bearing on your day. There are probably a million better things I could be doing with my day and/or life.
But I can promise that this will be the greatest, most intense critique of the LEGO Detroit Steel Strikes! playset that you’re ever going to read! Join me after the jump!
By the time you’re reading this, I’ll be manning my own table at the Fingerlakes Comic-Con in my hometown of Auburn, NY! It’s a 3-day event and I’ll be there all three days promoting my own comic, Gamer Girl & Vixen! There will be some big GG&V news coming soon, but for now, I’m spreading the good word at a hopefully awesome convention!
As for the rest of comics this week, it was another good one! We’ve got Harley Quinn, we’ve got U.S.Avengers and we’ve got Power Rangers, among others! Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Patsy Walker a.k.a. Hellcat! Because it’s just adorable and funny, that’s why.
This week in comics I read but didn’t review, I’m taking a slight break from The Mighty Thor. It was still a fun issue — because Jason Aaron is great on the title — but it further solidifies my belief that this Asgard/Shi’ar War is a weird waste of time. We’ll get back to Mighty Thor when that wraps up. And I really enjoyed the new issue of Nightwing, until writer Tim Seeley teased a possible fridging! I’m going to give Seeley the benefit of the doubt and see what the next issue holds, but for now, he’s on notice!
Comic Reviews: Harley Quinn #14, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #12, Patsy Walker a.k.a. Hellcat #15, U.S.Avengers #3 and The Wild Storm #1.
Why make more Thor movies when we can just have comedy shorts? The first one was genius, and a second one is going to be part of the Doctor Strange DVD release this month! Here’s a brief tease/clip!
Hilarious! I want more and more of these for the entire build-up for Thor: Ragnarok. But they may raise the hype too much for the actual release.
