Even more Spidey pics, showing WHITE lenses!!


Spiderman maskThe site Perez Hilton has grab another new picture of the new Spider-man suit from the filming in LA the other night.  This photo seems to contradict what was seen in the latest, in that the lenses are clearly white (thank god!) along with a clear shot of the foot, which no longer looks like he’s wearing shoes, but has some type of metal brace  or something that appears to come around from the heal and the arch of the foot.  Unsure if this is for the stunt suit or if this is part of the actual suit we will see.   And what’s going on with the “boots”?  Looks like there might be a web pattern on the front part, but to me the calf looks somewhat strange.  Also not feeling the lines going down the legs in the blue portions.  Just feels like unneeded extra to me.

Hopefully after all these leaked photos and video’s Sony will soon release another shot of the suit, showing the full redesigned suit to end all speculation.

Corruption of the young…with Wonder Woman #600


So my 8 year old has currently been asking questions regarding collecting.  She wants to collect something, she’s wanting to make something her own.  Basically she’s trying to find who she is and develop her own identity, but currently has trouble letting go of the desire to make everyone around her happy with her.  Well the other day, she just randomly starting sorting through some of my old comic books I have up stairs.  Now first off, you have to understand I used to be a HUGE comic geek back in the day, I mean huge!  Was a heavy collector of all things Spider-man, well before the movies, and I had a great collection too, unfortunately I really don’t have any of it left, through circumstances I’m not proud of at all.  Anyway, she started asking question, like how long did I buy them, where did I buy them, etc. and actually sat down and started reading an issue of JLA.

Well today, I did something that gave me a small spark of pride, and a large chunk of questioning motives.  Fortunately my job takes me many places throughout the state, and when coming home, I was able to pass what used to be my main stop for all things comics back in the day in Somerset, Ky.  The store is Collector’s Comics, and fortunately for myself, the place was still there.  Well I walked in with the determination to find 2-3 comics that would give a good range of what my 8 year old might or might not enjoy reading and/or collecting.  A task that I found was not as smooth and easy as I had hoped, as I found out, and explained to the man working the store, its not that easy to shop for comics for someone else!!

So after much browsing and fighting the urge to buy a large group of books for myself,perez600 I came away with 3, those being Tiny Titans, the current Supergirl (#54 I believe) and the recently released Wonder Woman #600.  I had already read WW through a different means, so I knew the issue, not only being a starting point for a story for her, but also gave her a few separate stories she could read and get a feel for how comics are.

Where this will lead, I have no clue as she hasn’t sat down to read any yet, but already has one of my unused bags and boards to place her WW #600 in once she’s completed with it, and she already plans on going through my books and pulling ones she’d like to look at.  So either I will soon have what will be an avid comic fan (and my new excuse for running to the local store on Weds) or this will be a phase that burns out as quickly as it was ignited.  Only time will tell, so we can only sit back and wait (and read the news headlines coming in from SDCC)

Thor Movie: Odin and Loki appear


Thanks to a set visit from Entertainment Tonight, I’ve grabbed screen captures of two more characters revealed.  Anthony Hopkins and the one-eyed Odin, along with what looks to possibly be Loki in what looks to be a big hall, likely part of Asgard.  Take a look and see what you think!

Thor’s costume revealed; with very little thunder


In keeping with the theme of random news on the Thor movie, today hot on the heels of the Captain America concepts came the release of an image depicting Thor’s “look” for the movie.  First two things I notice are A.)  No helmet and B.) The lower half of his body, the pants and boots suck horribly and if you take into consideration he is a Norse God, well I guess even Thor has to go “Hollywood.”  Take a look and make your own evaluations.  After reading comments online, my favorite is that is looks like they ripped off a bunch of gas caps off of an Audi.
