As promised, it's a big week for news coming from Marvel Studios' CAPTAIN MARVEL, and the latest piece of the growing puzzle is the unveiling of Hasbro's spring 2019 product line. Inspired by the forthcoming film starring Academy Award-winner Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Hasbro's new toy line invites kids to live-out the action, missions, and adventures of CAPTAIN MARVEL with dolls, role play items, and more. Check out the full lineup below, including the collector-focused Marvel Legends line...
This coming March, audiences will finally get to experience one of the most buzzed-about new superhero films in years when Marvel Studios’ CAPTAIN MARVEL arrives in theaters. Following a massive year that saw the release of Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and the recent Ant-Man and the Wasp, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will enter 2019 by going backward on the timeline for an adventure set in the early 1990s - an era left previously-unexplored in the MCU. With the stakes high, the arrival of Academy Award-winner Brie Larson as Carol Danvers signals the formal debut of what Marvel Chief Kevin Feige has famously noted as being a hero with powers that “are off the charts." While there's many secrets yet to be revealed about Captain Marvel and how the film connects to the forthcoming Avengers 4, there's one secret that I've been keeping that can now be revealed... I spent time on the set of CAPTAIN MARVEL.
It was back in September that audiences first got a look at Marvel Studios' CAPTAIN MARVEL, and as we enter the all-important 3-month ramp-up to release, the second full trailer has been released! Fresh from its debut on ESPN's Monday Night Football, feast your eyes upon a fresh look at CAPTAIN MARVEL - in theaters on March 8, 2019. And stay tuned for more Marvel-ous news and features in the days ahead!
As the end of 2018 draws near, we're just three months out from the theatrical launch of Marvel Studios' CAPTAIN MARVEL - a film with a lot riding on it when it comes to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course that also means a bunch of new toys and collectibles, and the folks at Funko are right out in front with the announcement of a full range of Pop! Vinyl Figures, Pocket Pop! Keychains, Pens and Dorbz. As always, it's the core Pop! Vinyls that will be the most sought-after, and for Captain Marvel that's gonna me a lot of running around for completists. From a consumer standpoint, I'm not a big fan of exclusives, though retailers use them to draw the crowds. For Captain Marvel, that means keeping an eye out at mass retailers, specialty shops like Entertainment Earth and hunting down variants at GameStop, FYE, Walmart, Target, Boxlunch and Hot Topic to collect them all!
It's time to take things back to a different era... one that holds a particular place of fondness for me: the mid-1990s. For the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), we're spinning things back to move things forward. As teased at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, when Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) realizes that something is very much awry thanks to the impact of Thanos' snap, he pulls out a device to contact Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) aka Captain Marvel. Where she's been all these years is a mystery, but at some point in the 90s she found herself super-powered and in the midst of a war between two alien forces - the Skrulls and the Kree. Along for the ride, a pre-eye patch Nick Fury. It's been said that Danvers is in fact the most powerful hero in the MCU, and on March 8, 2019 we'll get the full story when Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel arrives in theaters, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Now, fresh from its debut on ABC's Good Morning America, here's your first-look at the first trailer!
As audiences eagerly await next year's release of Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel, she's coming to animated form in MARVEL RISING: Secret Warriors, which makes it's debut on Sunday, September 30th at 10PM ET/PT simultaneously on Disney Channel and Disney XD. She's a supporting player here, as Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors follows super-powered teens Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno join forces as an unlikely, but formidable crew of aspiring heroes. When a threat no one could have expected bears down on the Marvel Universe, this ragtag, untrained band of teens have no choice but to rise together and prove to the world that sometimes the difference between a “hero” and “misfit” is just in the name. Today comes the full trailer, which made its debut on Marvel HQ and can be seen below!
