Masters of the Universe Mini Comic Hardcover Collection coming from Dark Horse

It’s a like dream come true.  As a kid, first getting into Masters of the Universe, it was the mini comics that hooked me first.  A savage, barbarian He-Man beating the snot out of various creatures seemed much cooler than a purple-clad in a bowl-cut chanting at his magic sword.

There will be plenty of Adam’s adventures, too, but this upcoming hardcover mini-comic collection will take all of those vintage mini comics from all vintage eras of Masters of the Universe and She-Ra, and put them in the palm of your hand for the first time.

It doesn’t appear as if the new Masters of the Universe Classics mini comics will be included, but hopefully that’s possible down the road.

New Daredevil TV spot with Karen Page, Stick, and Wilson Fisk

A mixture of old footage and new footage, but at this point, with less than 2 weeks until its debut, I will grasp and cling to every millisecond of new footage I can get.

Coulson confronts Mack on Agents of SHIELD “One Door Closes”

Last week was a somewhat slow episode of Agents of SHIELD, but it doesn’t feel like that’s going to be an issue this time around.  While there isn’t a whole lot of action in this clip from the next episode, “One Door Closes” there’s plenty of tension, and you have to think things are going to come to a head…

Michael Bay and Akiva Goldsman working together to expand Transformers film universe

Hrmm.

I’m a diehard 80s kid, and an even more diehard toy fan. In actuality, the Transformers films, if done correctly, should fall right in my sweet spot.

I’ll argue that the first film was actually pretty fun. I enjoyed it thoroughly in 2007 when I was lucky enough to see the premier with some great friends at Botcon that year. But they’ve gone consistently downhill since then, which is almost unfathomable because Revenge of the Fallen was absolutely horrific, and somehow, some way, Age of Extinction ended up being worse. I think it broke some laws of physics somewhere.

So when Deadline reports that Michael Bay and Akiva Goldsman are putting their heads together to expand the Transformers cinematic universe into more developed sequels and spin offs, I can only say..

Hrrm.

So far, one might argue, Bay has failed to produce a single coherent Transformers film. Now, somehow he’s expected to help develop multiples at once? Yeah, let’s see how that works out for them.

And I know the question tingling on everyone’s tongue… could this, at some point, wrap into the G.I. Joe film universe somehow?

Honestly, I don’t know. It certainly doesn’t seem like it, but if Hasbro is investing time and money into further building upon their film world, one would think A Real American Hero might benefit from some of that attention.

Guess we’ll see…

Meet Quicksilver and the Scarlett Witch from Avengers: Age of Ultron

Thanks to Marvel Studios and the wonders of the Avengers initiative, people everywhere now consider Iron Man, Thor, and Loki household names. However, two new additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch are relative unknowns.

A featurette on YouTube today hopes to change that, focusing on the ‘Super Siblings’ of the Avengers sequel. Check it out below.

Meanwhile, over on Buzzfeed.com, a long form article outlining the history of the two characters, plus a look at their role in the film can help shed some light on these two characters as well.

Deadpool… how YOU doin’?

Yes that is the official costume. Life is good.

Hot Toys Mark VII Stealth Iron Man

It amazes me at just how deep down the Iron Man rabbit hole Hot Toys manages to go, and I imagine they find folks only too eager to drop down there with them. Those high end collectors bank rolling full “Halls of Armor” with $200+ 1:6 scale figures are a community of folks I’m sure I’ll never mix with, but I can’t argue how gorgeous the toys are.

The Mark VII Stealth Iron Man is from the first Avengers film and looks striking in this new dark paint scheme. Check out the newly revealed images below. Pre-Order information sure to follow.

Daredevil set visit reveals some gory new details about the Netflix series

If you’re eagerly consuming every small morsel of Daredevil news like I am, this article will feel like a nice sit-down meal in a fancy restaurant.

Shortlist.com visited the set of Daredevil and unleashed a long article outlining some back story for the series, and even reveals some little tasty tidbits of what we can expect.

For instance, while we’re all aware of how gritty and real world the series is, I’m not sure any of us foresaw Daredevil pushing a criminal from a rooftop or The Kingpin decapitating someone with a car door…sounds like this series is down and dirty, and I for one can’t wait to check it out.
