The New LEGO Daily Bugle is a Menace to My Wallet!

Be still my geeky heart, LEGO debuted a gigantic Daily Bugle set yesterday! This thing is a beast, with like a dozen mini-figures, multiple settings and just so much going on that the picture I’m posting does not do it justice!

Leap it in a single bound!

Go to the official LEGO site and zoom in on some of these pictures, people. This is a thing of beauty!

Of course, this massive LEGO set is also going to set a person back $300. Will I pay that much for this giant LEGO dreamscape? Maybe…I haven’t decided yet. It comes out on June 1, so I have time to mull it over. The biggest problem is that I don’t have anywhere to display it. I’ve already got LEGO models on the floor in my little apartment because I don’t have table or shelf space anymore.

But this is still beautiful! There’s a bunch of heroes, including Spider-Ham, Daredevil and Miles Morales, and a ton of villains, including most of the original Sinister Six, like Sandman, Doctor Octopus and the likes of both Venom and Carnage. They even through in some anti-heroes like Punisher, Blade and Black Cat! How neat! Plus civilians like J. Jonah Jameson and Robbie Robertson. There’s a Robbie Robertson LEGO!

Behold the fire escape!

A LEGO Marvel set this size opens up a lot of potential going forward. Marvel hasn’t done too great with LEGO in recently years…largely because Marvel doesn’t have a lot of vehicles, and they were staying away from the likes of the X-Men and Fantastic Four for a while for stupid reasons. But perhaps we’ll get a Baxter Building one of these days? I’m holding out for an X-Mansion for damn sure. There’s so much potential for good X-Men LEGO!

Here’s hoping my wallet can survive the experience!

How Does Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Look This Damn Good?

There’s a new trailer for the upcoming animated Spider-Man movie, and it looks even more phenomenal than before!

That’s comedian John Mulaney as Spider-Ham, and he kills it! And Nic Cage as Spider-Man Noir! And just look at that trailer! I was skeptical about this whole thing back when it was first announced — because Spidey is in very good live action hands these days, and we don’t need a saturated market — but this looks funny and heartwarming!

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes out in December!

How About Some Marvel Cartoons?

I dunno you guys, I haven’t been getting the proper amount of sleep this week. I am beat! And I don’t know what else to post today. So how about an official collection of all the Marvel Rising: Initiation cartoons? I dunno, they’re pretty fun. And it’s got awesome animated cartoon Squirrel Girl teaming up with awesome animated cartoon Kamala Khan! That’s pretty darn cool!

Though the funniest thing is how badly Marvel wants to change the name of Spider-Gwen to Ghost Spider. It’s insane. How does that name even work? Just because her Spider-Girl outfit is white? I thought these people were professional writers?

Holy Guacamole! Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Trailer Astounds!

At this point in the superhero movie landscape, I think it’s safe to be completely skeptical of anything SONY might be doing on their own for Spider-Man. But the teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse looked amazing, and now the full-length trailer looks just as spectacular!

The hype is real. Here’s hoping SONY can pull it off! They even make the alternate reality Miles Morales stuff make some sense!

The animation also looks superb! And the comedy quite funny. This movie looks damn good!

The film debuts in December.

Of Course Emma Stone Should Play Spider-Gwen

Though she’s probably too old for that new kid they hired to play Spider-Man, Emma Stone is the obvious choice for fan favorite character Spider-Gwen. And not just because she was the best Gwen Stacy on the big screen (Remember that there have been two?).

Major props to Vulture Studios and New York Magazine for putting this video together. It’s well-edited, looks pretty nifty and really shows deft of craft. Plus Emma Stone is pretty awesome, so giving her more attention is always a plus!
