Looks like Marvel really is getting serious about its console gaming presence again, and a colloboration with Square-Enix has the potential to be huge. While the long wait is a drag, we’ll have Telltale’s Guardians of teh Galaxy Game, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, and Insomniac’s PS4 Spider-man title (assume it comes out this year) to tide us over until then.
Since All-New Marvel had been announced, many fans feared that the X-men books were being thrown towards the wayside in favor of Disney-approved heroes, and that the Inhumans were taking the place of mutants as the ‘hated and feared’ superpowered minority of the Marvel Universe. Happily, these fears seem to be unfounded. For the past few weeks, Marvel has been hinting at a ‘Resurrexion’ for the X-men books. A teaser went out two weeks ago, and last week, several new books were revealed, each of which being a throwback of sorts to the past. However, they leave some interesting questions in their wake, especially since the creative teams behind each book have yet to be revealed.
Yesterday we got a look at the next installment of Marvel’s space odyssey. Not much was shown beside Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gammorah, Batista as Drax, and cameos by Rocket and Groot. However with Dr. Strange on the way in 2 weeks and the recent Logan trailer, we should have enough to chew on before the film’s May 5th 2017 release date.
Here’s our first look at Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine. While it looks somewhat inspired by the Old Man Logan storyline, it looks like most of its inspiration comes from Clint Eastwood westerns and Mad Max. It’s definitely a different take on the superhero genre and could be fitting for Wolverine’s last hurrah. We also get a glimpse of Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier, Boyd Holbrook as villain Donald Pierce, and a little girl that some believe could be X-23. Check it out and tell us what you think.
At New York Comic Con this past weekend, Marvel Entertainment announced that Ultimate Spider-Man will be ending its run in early January at the end of its fourth season. It’s replacement series New Spider-Man will debut later in 2017. Produced by Robot Chicken’s Kevin Shinick and supervising director Philip Pignotti, New Spider-Man will feature a Spider-Man who has just started out as a superhero. Along with New Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy will get a second season, which features a storyline teaming them with the avengers. Avengers Assemble will also return for an all new season, and will feature cameos by Black Panther, Ms Marvel, and Agent Carter, who will be voiced by Haley Atwell.
By now most of you have made your way through Luke Cage. You won’t have to wait much longer to see his partner and fellow Defender Iron Fist in action, as Marvel’s upcoming Iron Fist Netflix series has a release date, as revealed in this teaser. Of course there isn’t much in it, but we now know how much longer we’ll have to wait to see Danny Rand in the small screen.
