Unless you live under a rock, or ya know…had other responsibilities, you’ve probably heard and/or seen the new Avengers: Infinity War trailer that dropped today.
As if there were any doubt, it looks amazing. For all it’s wonderful inclusions, I’d like to know what you all think!
An even better question (please leave your answer in the comments below) is, what character would you like to see introduced in this movie that has not yet been in a MCU film?
My vote? Well, I’m going to cheat here because it’s less of a singular character and more of a group. How much would you all freak out if, say, in the post credits sequence, a certain ship materializes out of a certain negative zone with a certain family of Four…. OR…better yet, a slow zoom to Thor, laying unconscious on the ground, as we close in on his face, what looks like a rocky hand pinches his nose and leans in over his face, Thor comes to, flailing then as lucidity comes and his vision starts to correct, he says softly, “Korg? What has happened to you?” to which our ORANGE rocky friend replies, “Korg? That’s the last time I try mouth-ta-mouth resuscitation with a guy that calls himself a thunder god…” The camera zooms back out as we see the rest of the FANTASTIC FOUR come into view!!!
Here’s the trailer for the new Avengers cartoon on Disney XD. I liked the previous series, kind of sad they cancelled it. The design and appearance here doesn’t seem too different, but I’m not sure I like it as much, the odd, off proportions look a little too “kiddy”(?), like they’ve drawn action figures rather than comic book characters, then again, I didn’t think I’d like the previous cartoon either! I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see! What do you think?

Over the past month, I have gotten caught up on almost all the Marvel Now! line. I must say, oddly, that Matt Fraction’s two series, Hawkeye and FF (art by Mike & Laura Allred!!), are my favorites. They are what Continue reading Review: Marvel NOW! – Hawkeye→
One of Marvel NOW’s most anticipated books releases this week, Avengers #1 by Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena. I must say that I’m super excited for this book. Hickman quickly made Fantastic Four one of my favorite books, so it’ll be great to see what he can do with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. From DC we see the Rotworld story continue with both Animal Man and Swamp Thing releasing their 15th issues. Now for some covers.
Here are my favorite covers from the current week of comics.
The Mighty Thor #19
Cover by Alan Davis
Not everyone likes him, but I’m kind of a sucker for Alan Davis art. I especially like the way that he draws Thor, and this cover is another great rendition.
Hawkeye #2 Cover by David Aja
I love David Aja’s work, and his covers during his run on Immortal Iron Fist remain some of my favorite. I was pumped to learn that he would be working with Matt Fraction again, this time on Hawkeye. As this cover shows, he doesn’t disappoint.
Variant Cover by Skottie Young
It’s Skottie Young, and for me personally that’s really all that’s necessary for this cover to be on the list. It’s a variant cover celebrating Spidey’s 50th Anniversary, and it’s fantastic.
I know, we’re all well aware that the Avengers comes out in a couple weeks, with some theaters doing a full “Avengers Day” package showing of all the films leading up to it. I’d kind of like at least one theater showing all the vintage live action films. Maybe they could, and maybe it could lead up to this.
Wow…just…wow. This is brilliant and I *kinda* wish it were real. I would have loved to see this as a kid!! Although I know it’s a bit obscure even for those in my age range, I LOVE the idea of Paul Lynde as “Loki” hahaha! And Kudos go to the creators of this for the very witty “Hawkeye” dual reference.
(FYI, I am well aware that some of the clips here are from the 80’s, but hey, I didn’t make the video!! Regardless, it still feels right with that date. I just feel this needs saying. I know how finicky “we” can be.)
AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!! TONY, PUT YOUR DAMNED HELMET ON!! YOU’RE GONNA GET HURT!!! YOU TOO CAP! YOU WERE IN THE WAR!!! YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER!
Marvel release this new “Avengers” poster. Whereas I’m VERY excited to see this movie, and it does look like it’s going to be a wild ride, I just can’t stand the posters they’ve released. It all looks too cartoony, photoshopped, hokey, ect.
Seriously, the Iron Man movies have made enough money and the character’s marketing itself spans a wide enough scope that the character in full suit is recognizable. I don’t need to see RDJ’s mug in this poster. It ruins the whole thing for me. I mean, it’s not going to stop me from throwing down my, what is it now $15 for a movie? But, with all the amazing artists marvel has under their belt, can’t we just get one, really amazing poster for this film? Is that too much to ask?
