Cool Stuff: Marvel Superheros ‘Got Milk’ Commercial

Posted 3 years ago by Television

I vaguely remember seeing this commercial back in the day, but it’s interesting to see now that we’re actually used to having The Avengers in live action on film. The costumes in this Got Milk commercial are straight out of the comics, and are pretty interesting. That Hulk actually looks kind of awesome! I know they wouldn’t have been able to use that for a movie very well, but it looks really cool. And that Spidey costume doesn’t look bad at all.

Iron Man on the other hand looks a little derpy.

I don't plan on seeing this movie, but some of these LEGO sets actually look pretty cool.

LEGO negotiating Simpsons license with Fox [News] | The Brothers Brick | LEGO Blog
Wait, what? I've always thought LEGO sets based on The Simpsons would be amazing, but I never thought it would be possible due to the more…adult tone of the show. I don't think the minifigures would looke that great overall (Homer especially) but you have to admit, Marge's hair piece would be pretty sweet.

Introducing Marvel Phase 2 Character Guides

Posted 4 years ago by Movies

Marvel Phase 2

Even though I’ve been hooked on comics lately, I still only consider myself a casual comic book fan. When I was fifteen or so, I read a lot of graphic novels and religiously bought new issues of Wizard Magazine, but I didn’t make it to comic book shops often enough (or have the money) to keep up with ongoing stories. When you take into account the decades and decades of history most of the major superheroes have now, not to mention all the reboots and parallel timelines it can be overwhelming to get into a new character.

Being way more of a movie buff than a comic one, I am a huge fan of what Marvel has done with their Cinematic Universe. Iron Man was a big surprise, and although The Incredible Hulk was just alright and Iron Man 2 was a disappointment, the shared universe really picked up steam when Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers all came out within a year of each other.

With Phase 2 of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe kicking off in a few months with Iron Man 3, I’ve been wanting to prepare and learn about all the new characters that will be on screen. With Phase 1, I knew the backstories of all the characters but this time around things are getting a little more obscure.

Phase 2 Character Guides

So, I decided to do some research on the main new characters in Phase 2 and share it with you all, as well as open it up for discussion. I’m sure there are plenty of comic book nerds out there who can point us in the right direction as far as what we should read before seeing the new movies. These won’t be histories or biographies. Think of them more like bibliographies. A collection of stuff I’ve found that should help better understand the characters.

So, throughout the next few months we will be looking at different characters from the next batch of Marvel movies, which are:

Shirt of the Day: Vote Rogers & Stark 2012

2012 Rogers Stark

Geeky shirts are everywhere these days. I don’t post as many on the site as I used to, but every once in a while I can’t resist. That’s definitely the case with this political-inspired shirt over at Redbubble. I’m sure a lot more people my age would get behind an election if the two running mates were Avengers.

I’ve never bought anything from Redbubble (mainly because the prices seem so high) so I can’t vouch for quality, but this shirt is pretty awesome and I may pick it up.
