First TV spot for iZombie

 http://www.geeksofdoom.com/GoD/img/2015/01/izombie-cw-rose-mciver.jpg

Below is the first tv spot promo for iZombie!

In this clip Liz (Basically Gwen from the comics) gets a job, makes some freinds, and eats some brains.....Mmmmm




Official Description:

Published on Jan 30, 2015
From executive producer Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars”). Rose McIver (“Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon A Time”) stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out… until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv has devised a way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains – she’s taken a job in the Seattle coroner’s office. In this appropriately dead-end job, she can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue. Liv remains resigned to an eternity without hope or purpose, until she realizes that with every brain she consumes, she retains a portion of that person’s memories, and she begins to experience visions from the point of view of the murder victims. It’s not the same as being alive again, but at least she can find purpose in her undead existence by helping to solve the murders of those who are indeed fully dead.

Starring: Rose McIver, Molly Hagan, Malcolm Goodwin, and Elise Gatian.

Premieres Tuesday, March 17 at 9 on CW.

Uncanny Avengers # 1 2015 Preview

New release photo shows the upcoming Uncanny Avengers team.



There are some interesting changes headed for the team.

I think this roster looks pretty interesting.  What do you think?

Marvel Funko! Collector Corps Box Service






Funko is starting a very cool new service called Marvel Collector Corps where they will send out collector boxes for $25 each.   Each box will contain what Funko will assess to be around $50 of value.  The collector boxes have become a popular way of getting a fun and exciting surprise.  This one really stands out to me because Funko already has great Marvel based items.

The boxes will come out every other month.  So if you sign for an annual subscription you will get 6 boxes a year.

You can sign up for the service at:
www.collectorcorps.com.

The boxes will be based around events happening in Marvel cinematic and comics universes.   When Age of Ultron comes out there will be items based on, and same for Antman.

The First Box!  AGE OF ULTRON!
Marvel Collector Corps
The First box will ship in April and it will based largely around Avengers: Age of Ultron.  It will include an exclusive 6" Iron Man Hulkbuster Pop figure, a T-Shirt, and two premium accessories.  This Hulkbuster figure will only be available through this service.


Founders Program:
 Marvel Collector Corps
Those that sign up for the Founders Program will recieve a six box subscription and will recieve an exclusive Founder Statue at the 12 month anniversary of their first box shipment.  Provided their membership does not lapse.  If you really like Funko Pop figures this is the way to go!

Lego Set Peek- The SHIELD Helicarrier

Holy Wowza this thing is amazing!



I think the best desription of this set is Epic or Mammoth or Huge.  This set include the giant SHIELD heli-carrier.  As if that were not impressive enough it also includes little Quin Jets that can land aboard it.

The Helicarrier is expected to retail for around $350 dollars usd.

http://cnet1.cbsistatic.com/hub/i/r/2015/01/29/4d53338d-ed87-4d6d-be94-adbd00ee904c/resize/770x578/5d4bbad16c13d5ef5eabd26a5f23a526/legoheli.png

Scale:
One thing to keep in mind is scale.  Lego was not able make the Helicarrier be at the scale of their normal mini-figures.  They seemed to decide that the mini-figure scale would have made it TOO big.  They then went about making the set at their micro-figure scale.  Micro-figures are about half the size  of the normal Lego mini-figures.  The set provides a group of Micro-figures as well as some Mini-Figures of the main characters.

Buildables
Well first and foremost this set includes a massive Helicarrier that even has  a detailed interior.  2 Jets, and 2 Quinjets can be constructed for landing and taking off from the carrier.  The set also looks like it includes little ground vehicles like forklifts and gas trucks.

The set also includes a little SHIELD podium for the Mini-Figures to stand on.

Inside the Helicarrier there is also rooms to lace your Microfigs

Here is a closer look at how they built the Quinjets


http://jaysbrickblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/LEGO-76042-SHIELD-Helicarrier-Micro-Quinjet-1024x809.jpg

Mini-Figures
The set includes five mini-figures:
Maria Hill, Nick Fury, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye.  While the set does provide these guys keep in mind they are going to look a bit too big against most of the stuff in the set.  Which is the set includes a bunch of micro-figures (See below).

Micro- Figures
The Micro-Figures are a bit smaller than their mini cousins and appear to be at the perfect scale for this set.
It looks like the Micro-Figures will be Iron Man, Captain America, Hawkeye, Nick Fury and a group of SHIELD agents (I think 8 of them)

http://www.bricksandbloks.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/2015-LEGO-Black-Manta-Deep-Sea-Strike-76027-LEGO-2015-DC-Sets.jpg

It is expected to retail for around $40.

Build-ables:
The set features 3 fairly sizable build-able structures:  Black Manta's sting ray looking submarine, the Bat sub, and a temple of Alantis where Robin is chained.  One cool feature is that when the Trident on the Alantis temple is triggered the chains to Robin are released and he is freed.  You can shoot Aquaman at the Trident using the super jumper component that comes with the set.

Inbetween a mini and a build-able structure is a robotic shark that features glow in the dark torpedoes.


Minis:

This set features the minis of Aquaman, Robin, Batman and Black Manta.   I think the design of Black Manta is very cool.  Its interesting to look and see how his head was created.

The Robin mini is also pretty neat in that one of his faces features scuba gear that other more of his traditional mask.

Lego Set Peek - Gorilla Grodd goes Bananas

 http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/lego/images/7/7d/Screen_Shot_2014-09-29_at_10.07.36_AM.png/revision/latest?cb=20140929161235

Lego Set Peek - Gorilla Grodd goes Bananas

I have feeling that after kids see Gorilla Grodd on the Flash TV show they may really want this Lego set.  It includes two of the best Flash villains Captain Cold who has been awesome on the show, and my personal favorite Gorilla Grodd!

http://www.bricksandbloks.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/2015-LEGO-DC-Gorilla-Grodd-Goes-Bananas-76026-Set1.jpg

On top of the Flash and his villains you get Batman and Wonder Woman.  Batman shows up in a giant Bat Mech Robot and Wonder Woman has her Invisible Jet.  The invisible jet looks especially sleek to me.

The three buildables are the Batman Mech, the Invisible Jet and the Banana cart.  The Invisible jet looks especially cool though not quite invisible.

Mini-Figures:

Who is Gorilla Grodd? 

Gorilla Grodd is coming to the Flash

 http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/0/77/192668-170255-gorilla-grodd.jpg

The Flash has turned out to be one of the better Super Hero shows on TV.   What I really like about it is that it is giving comic book fans exactly what they want.  A good hero, amazing actors, great drama who gets to battle his super villains each week.  This week even bigger, Gorilla sized news dropped.

Gorilla Grodd is Coming!
The showrunners are saying that one of Flash's main villains Gorilla Grodd will show up at the end of Season 1.

Grodd has been hinted at since episode 1 so I have been hoping he would show up.  I  am a HUGE Gorillia Grodd fan, Why?  I have no idea but I love that giant smart Gorilla with an Ape sized passion.  :)

Here is a tweet from Andrew Kreisberg on seeing Grodd:

If that is to believed then Grodd will not only show up, but also look good doing it.

Gorilla Grodd Easter Eggs so far:

In Starlabs there was a cage with the name Gorilla Grodd on it.  The bars are bent and twisted after the accident indicating that he escaped.



https://nyoobserver.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/grodd.png?w=635&h=435


In another clip from the episode Plastique we see the mysterious, time traveling baddie, Doctor Wells talking to Grodd (pre accident)  He knows that Grodd will become a super bad boy in the future.

In the same episode Wells talks about experiments that were less than humane done for General Eiling to create a form of mind control.  These experiments very likely involved Grodd in ape form.  Grodd's main power is mind control.  This may also explain some of Grodd's motivation at becoming a super baddie.  He will be very angry at being experimented on and potentially go after Doctor Wells for revenge.

Silk #1 Preview

 



Silk is getting her own series check out the preview below.

One thing that really stands out to me is the art.   The art is fun and colorful and has a Saturday morning cartoons vibe.  I think this series will be a lot of fun.  I do worry that Spider-Gwen and Silk will cannibalize each others sales though.

Who will Edward James Olmos play on Agents of SHIELD

 

Who will Edward James Olmos play on Agents of SHIELD?

Edward James Olmos has been confirmed to be a character in Agents of SHIELD's remaining 2nd season.  Who will he be?

Answer:  Robert Gonzales

He will play a character called Robert Gonzales.   Nobody knows exactly who this character will be but everyone assumes he will be a big deal.  Olmos is considered to be a dramatic heavy hitter, so I expect the character will be important.

Some Comic Ideas:

Vincent Gonzales:
There is a Vin Gonzales who is Peter Parker's roomate for awhile.  He is police detective trying to bring down Spider-Man.  He later revealed to an acolyte of sorts of the original Green Goblin, Norman Osborn.
I don't see Vincent Gonzales having anything to do with the Robert Gonzales character that Olmos is playing.

Ennilux Capo:
One thought I have is that they seem to be going toward learning more about Inhumans.  What if Robert Gonzales is the human name of Ennilux Capo the leader of the Inhuman Ennilux Corporation.
This would fit with the idea that the eyeless man in the last episode is the Inhuman Reader who is working for the Ennilux Corporation.

I believe many of the characters from the new series Inhuman could be used by the show.  Watch out for them to appear in some capacity.
