From the blog of Eric Trautmann:

I was recently asked to provide a "commentary track" for Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist #1, which is now available in its entirety on Comic Book Resources.

Basically, it's just some annotations—where I got some of the ideas, why I made some of the choices I made, and so on.

It is also a great way to check it out, if you've been on the fence.

Here's the link; and if you are enjoying the series, please pass on the link as far and wide as possible.

FANTASTIC FOUR TO END WITH A BANG, NOT A SECRET WARS CROSSOVER

Saying good-bye to the World's Greatest Comic Magazine and Marvel's First Family (Source: Bleeding Cool):

The Fantastic Fourever arc sees Marvel’s long-running Fantastc Four comic book come to a close. Last summer, Marvel employees got in touch to tell Bleeding Cool that the series was being cancelled as a direct result of CEO Ike Perlmutter‘s irritation with Fox Studios, their Fantastic Four movie and their attitude towards working with Marvel. As a result, we were informed that Fantastic Four posters were taken down from the offices, Fantastic Four licenses were withdrawn from licensors, and that the Fantastic Four comic was to be cancelled for the duration of the promotion and release of the Fantastic Four movie. It was hoped that Bleeding Cool’s report might embarrass the publisher in to changing tack, but it was not to be.

And on Wednesday we get that final issue, issue 645, just before the Secret Wars crossover. But it seems to eschew getting involved with that at all – because though this as well timed with other books doing similar, this decision has noting to do with that event.So we get a celebration of Fantastic Four history, Psycho Man, the Frightful Four, Namor, the future Foundation, Salem’s Seven and a bad guy who has been around in the background since the very beginning.. editor Mark Paniccia writes a farewell note of sadness, and draws his own comic book strip The Ultimate Nullifier. And three back up stories, each giving a focus of goodbyes and cleaning up for Human Torch, Invisible Woman, the Thing and Mister Fantastic. And a promise that this is just the end… for now.

So where now the Four? Human Torch joins the Inhumans, Susan Storm is in SHIELD, Mister Fantastic is heavily involved in the Secret Wars stories as writer Jonathan Hickman draws in some of the plots he has laid out in his Fantastic Four run and New Avengers.

avengers hot topic her universe

Who says superheroes can’t be stylish? Eschewing spandex and body armor for a more flattering look, geek girl apparel company Her Universe and Disney Consumer Products have partnered for a new line of clothes inspired by the heroes of “Marvel’s Avengers” (and the villainous Loki). The fashion line will be available mid-May exclusively at Hot Topic stores and HotTopic.com, with an online pre-sale already under way ahead of “Avengers: Age of Ultron’s” May 1 release.

The “Avengers” line features items designed by winners of the first-ever Her Universe “Geek Couture” Fashion Show held at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, where attendees Amy Beth Christenson and Andrew MacLaine took top honors for their original creations. As part of the prize, they won the opportunity to design an exclusive fashion collection with Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein for Hot Topic.

“It’s been such a pleasure to work with Amy and Andrew to create this line from their initial sketches to the final product sold in Hot Topic stores,” said Eckstein. “Geek fashion is a trend that’s here to stay. Fangirls are making a statement in the fashion community, and this new Avengers collection is addressing their demand for more fashion-forward designs.”

“It’s exciting to see Marvel’s female fanbase grow with the second installation of our collaboration with Her Universe, inspired by one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2015, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’” said Paul Gitter, senior VP of licensing for Marvel at Disney Consumer Products. “This collection brings awareness of the emerging fangirl trend into mainstream fashion by uniting stylish designs with iconic characters to create a strong statement at retail.”

The six-piece collection includes dresses and jackets inspired by Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow and Loki.

“Witnessing two talented designers who truly understand the fans and fan culture win a competition at Comic-Con 2014, and then seeing their spin on “Avengers” turn into real product at Hot Topic makes what we all do feel genuinely authentic — and so much fun,” said Cindy Levitt, senior VP of merchandising and marketing at Hot Topic.

The new line is the latest in an expansive merchandise plan for “Age of Ultron,” which also includes150 products for Target and campaigns with Acura, Dr. Pepper, Visa, Wyndham hotels, Harley-Davidson, Land O’Frost lunchmeats, Farmers Insurance and Hershey. Along with typical kid-friendly fare including action figures, playsets and other toys from partners like Hasbro, Lego, Hot Wheels and Funko, the “Avengers” tie-ins will also spread to the food and packaged goods categories, including Sage Fruit, Conagra granola bars, Crunchpak and Chobani.

“For the first film, we primarily focused on the ‘Avengers’ property and the group shots,” Gitter toldVariety back in March. “Now we’re broadening the line and scope to create skews that focus on the team and the individual characters as well… Strategically, we have each one of the retailers focusing on pulling different marketing levers to market this to their consumer in an organized way.”
GRODD STRIKES IN NEW "THE FLASH" PHOTOS

The CW's hit DC Comics-based series "The Flash" has teased a major appearance from Grodd since the very first episode. Being that Grodd, known in the comics as Gorilla Grodd and created by John Broome and Carmine Infantino, is a super-smart telepathic gorilla, is suggested right from the start that the show wouldn't stray away from comic book-y elements.

More and more of Grodd has been shown as the series has progressed, and next week's episode, "Grodd Lives," looks to finally bring the famous Flash villain to center stage -- and our frineds over at CBR had exclusive new images from the episode, featuring Grodd attacking both The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Detective West (Jesse L. Martin).

WHY THE MARVEL MOVIE GUYS ARE ANNOYED WITH JOSS WHEDON

Joss Whedon has been talking about the confusion he caused by killing off Agent Coulson in The Avengers movie, bringing him back to life in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show, but then keeping him dead for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

We caught up with the writer-director to discuss the new film, and asked if Phil Coulson is indeed still deceased as far as the movies are concerned.

“Yeah he’s dead. The entire television series is just a fever dream. It’s a Jacob’s Ladder moment he’s having at the point of death, but we don’t give that away until after season seven. And there’s a snow globe. Now I’ve given it away. Bollocks!

“It’s a weird little yes and no. As far as I’m concerned in the films, yes he’s dead. In terms of the narrative of these guys [The Avengers] his loss was very important. When I created the television show, it was sort of on the understanding that this can work and we can do it with integrity, but these Avengers movies are for people to see the Avengers movies and nothing else. And it would neither make sense nor be useful to say ‘Oh and by the way remember me? I died!’”

And it sounds like the somewhat confusing decision has caused some consternation within the MCU.

“I think actually the movie people were a little bit cross about the TV show” Whedon revealed. “They were sort of like ‘Well you can have this but not this. And this but not that.’ It’s complicated enough as it is without me adding another layer of complication. We also created a TV show called S.H.I.E.L.D. right before they made a movie where they destroyed S.H.I.E.L.D.. So everybody’s having a GREAT time!”

The Coulson-free Avengers: Age of Ultron is in UK cinemas right now, while it hits US screens on May 1.

MUSICIANS UNION SUES WARNER BROS, MGM AND PARAMOUNT OVER ‘INTERSTELLAR,’ ‘ROBOCOP’ SCORES

visual Effects Oscar Contenders

The American Federation of Musicians has sued Warner Bros., MGM and Paramount for alleged violations of the union’s master contract for recording film scores outside the United States and Canada.

The three studios have each declined to comment.

The suit, filed in federal court in Los Angeles on Friday, seeks a jury trial and alleges that the studios have violated provisions of the 2010 collective bargaining agreement that require that films produced in North America must also be scored in North America.

The lawsuit names “Interstellar,” which was produced by Warner Bros. and Paramount; Warner’s “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”; and MGM’s reboots of “Robocop” and “Carrie” as being in violation of the master contract.

Hans Zimmer scored “Interstellar” and received an Oscar nomination in the category earlier this year.

The union is seeking damages for losses suffered by AFM members and a court order requiring the studios make appropriate contributions to health benefit funds.
DANIEL BRüHL CONFIRMS HE WILL PLAY BARON ZEMO IN CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

bruhl-zemo

German actor Daniel Brühl has confirmed that he will play Baron Zemo in the forthcoming Captain America: Civil War.

In a profile of the actor at The Independent's website, they report that:

Brühl has just been cast in the new Captain America, as the villain, Baron Helmut Zemo – “I thinkI can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison…” – and starts shooting at the end of April. “For the first few days I’ll walk around like a little boy, just amazed by the megalomania of it. It’s such a huge project. We could do 20 films with the budget.”

It's long been suspected that he would play Zemo, a character who has ties to Captain America's past but who has also occasionally been an antihero in his own right as leader of The Thunderbolts. Marvel Studios never confirmed the information, though.

Brühl's The Fifth Estate co-star Benedict Cumberbatch has recently joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well: he'll play Dr. Stephen Strange. Humorously, the film also starred Captain America franchise actor Anthony Mackie as a character named Coulson.

Captain America: Civil War is expected to start shooting soon for a release on May 6, 2016.
