The Spider-Man and his Amazing Threads Costume timeline...

Very brief it's just so you can get a proper look at this Amazing (I know) Spectacular (yep) costume timeline from Kate Willaert at Halloween Costumes dot com. So cool it even includes the original and now lost costume, no pic of course, but respect for acknowledging that it existed.

Also do not forget that it is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2014 on Saturday...The 3rd of May.

submit to reddit
Yes it’s been ages since I posted on here, but I’ve been even more ill than usual. Hence this brief as a bikini post. Tolkien, Peter Jackson, Benedict Cumberbatch voicing a mighty dragon. Nuff said right?



Synopsis...
“The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.”

ROBOCOP: Samuel L Jackson and Gary Oldman in the first trailer for the all new Robocop...

submit to reddit
Here's the first trailer for the  21st Century Robocop. Given that the original film was a subversive masterpiece of both violent entertainment AND subtext filled social commentary but everything that came afterwards was an abomination, feelings are decidedly mixed about this update.

Synopsis...
"In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice."

there's a good cast, although most people will be unaware of who Joel Kinnaman is (Star of American TV show "The Killing", Petter Weller was hardly a household name before he gave a perfect performance in the original film.
Cast:-Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Samuel L. Jackson

Thor: The Dark World has a much more “Avengers sideways sequel” look; and it is bloody brilliant too...

submit to reddit
Seriously guys the trailer is a Thor, and Loki, fan’s dream. Set on  at least three different planets, including ours (Poor old London!) it looks truly epic. I'm still too poorly to write much else, so I’ll let it speak for itself...

Synopsis...
“Thor: The Dark World' continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel's "Thor" and "Marvel's The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.”

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan SkarsgÄrd, Idris Elba,Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
