White Coffee Corporation has announced it will be releasing single-serve Marvel-branded coffee and hot chocolate to be available later this year in retail outlets nationwide. In addition, the products will be available at the upcoming New York Comic-Con.
While nothing from the Marvel Cinematic Universe was shared at this weekend’s ‘Marvel Unlimited+’ members only panel at New Jersey’s first Atlantic City Boardwalk Con, footage from upcoming animated series was shared with the attending audience. Among the footage was an extended clip from the upcoming Disney XD animated series, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ — or to be more precise, one of the shorts that will lead into the series. The shorts will actually help establish the Guardians for the viewing audience with origin stories and the like.
October 1939 saw the debut of ‘Marvel Comics,’ only that was the title of the comic book series, not the publication company itself. Decades before Marvel became Marvel, it began as Timely Publications and shortly thereafter — for a time — Timely Comics. It would further re-brand itself as Atlas Comics in the 1950s and transition into Marvel Comics in the 1960s. And the rest — as they say — is history.
For the Marvel fan that has almost everything, Beast Kingdom will offer life-size sculpts of the Hulkbuster from Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is now available for pre-order from Entertainment Earth, although the 9 3/4 foor tall statue — which clocks in at a whopping 1500 pounds — is equally as heavy on the wallet, costing a mere $18,000 plus the custom shipping (not to mention the required lift for ‘installation’). For all that moolah, it’s worth noting that it also lights up. The official description is as follows:
Walt Disney Studios Japan’s movie trailers have always managed to deviate from the ‘norm.’ They tend to feature different footage — often including spoilers, which would be considered taboo in other countries — and are edited to create an emotional story, rather than just splashy glimpses of various, unrelated scenes. Perhaps never has this been demonstrated more in this trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron which touches upon just every moment in the film that had audiences gasping. To put it mildly, if you have not seen the film yet, we do not advise you watch the trailer below. Unless you are a diehard Hawkeye fan that is.

The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats.

With just under a week before the domestic theatrical release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015), Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios have provided us with several dozen high resolution stills. While some have been previously released and some are from the official press kit (and even shared by us via Twitter), all of them are just full of awesomeness. You can find the new stills embedded in our gallery below.
Yesterday, Marvel released details for the upcoming original motion picture soundtrack for Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015) which will be available to own digitally on April 28 and on physical CD on May 19 (now available for pre-order).
In all, 28 tracks from the score were release (listed below). And while one track isn’t actually in the film (Danny Elfman’s ‘Heroes’), we were greeted with another surprise when a copy of the soundtrack landed on our virtual doorstep: a 29th track. It’s scored by Elfman and its overly complicated title is: ‘New Avengers – Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and it clocks in at 3:09, making it one of the longest tracks on the score. We have reached out to Hollywood Records for clarification and will update with additional information as it becomes available to us.
After their whirlwind publicity tour throughout Hollywood, not to mention the star studded world premiere last night at the Dolby Theatre, the Avengers are making their way to the Big Apple for an appearance on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America,’ on Friday, April 24, 2015.
Earlier this evening, Marvel Unlimited sent out an email to its Unlimited Plus members offering the first fifteen to respond the opportunity for them and their guests to attend the event as ‘VIP Super Fans.’ While those slots are most likely filled by now, Marvel notes that the event will be open to all fans (and presumably anyone who wishes to attend ‘Good Morning America’) and confirms it will be held outside in Times Square, just outside GMA’s Studios.
