By opening this app and scanning select Marvel products featuring the Marvel AR logo, you’ll unlock exclusive content starring the world’s most popular super heroes -- including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Hulk and many others! Go behind the scenes of your favorite comics, see new footage, hear from creators, get caught up on past events and more!

“It’s time to join the Marvel ReEvolution, as we bring the worlds of print and digital media together for an unprecedented fan experience,” said Peter Phillips, senior vice president and general manager, Marvel Digital Media Group. “Avengers VS X-Men is the biggest story we’ve ever told and teaming with Aurasma allows us to bring our fans a deeper experience when they purchase select Marvel comics and other Marvel products. Just wait till you see what we’ve planned!”



Marvel partnered with Aurasma, the world’s leading augmented reality platform, to create a mobile experience designed to empower fans to discover a new world of content that brings their favorite Super Heroes to life through tablets and mobile devices. Aurasma's cutting-edge image recognition technology enables the Marvel AR app to recognize images in new Marvel comic books, promotional posters and other merchandise, seamlessly augmenting the images with interactive virtual content such as videos, animations and more.

“Marvel is no stranger to digital media and is once again making history, this time by using Aurasma’s transformative technology to bridge the physical world with the virtual,” said, David Stone, Aurasma's director of client services. “What better way to excite and engage fans than to give them the power to interact with all of their favorite characters in a new way?”

Aurasma's free platform unlocks a whole new dimension for partners to creatively enhance the real world. In this case, comic books will reach new depths by unleashing coveted and fan-pleasing content like director and editor commentary and other special features, only accessible through the Marvel AR app.

The Marvel AR companion app, powered by Aurasma, will be available for free in April at the Apple App Store and Android Market.

STX Entertainment Motion Picture Group chairman Adam Fogelson announced the deal today which calls for Sandler to write, produce and star.

Fogelson, who worked with Chris Meledandri’s Illumination Entertainment on blockbusters including Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, Minions, The Lorax and more said in a statement: “As we continue to grow our company, the family arena is of critical importance to STX Entertainment and we are tremendously excited to have Adam Sandler and Happy Madison developing projects with us for the global animation market.

Oren Aviv, STX president and chief content officer, who has overseen marketing on a number of Walt Disney and Pixar animated films added, “When we launched our new animation division, we said we would continue to seek out meaningful partnerships with long-term potential at our studio. Teaming with Adam Sandler and Happy Madison is exactly the kind of quality relationship that further defines STX as a home for the world’s best storytellers.”
AMC'S "PREACHER" DEBUTS TO MODEST RATINGS
05/24/16 @ 7:15 pm EST
Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment




Last Sunday evening, "Preacher" debuted onAMC to modest ratings. Deadline reports the premiere pulled in 2.4 million total viewers with 1.1m in the key 18-49 demographic.

In comparison to the network's debut of "Into The Badlands," which scored 6.39m viewers in the same time slot in November, "Preacher" got off to a soft start. The premiere faced some heavy competition in its time slot, as it aired during the Billboard Music Awards and the NBA and NHL playoffs as well as a new episode of "Game of Thrones."

Nevertheless, "Preacher" was the second-best scripted series debut of 2016 with its 0.9 key demo results; it falls just behind FX's "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" premiere.

Airing prior to "Preacher," "Fear the Walking Dead" saw 4.4m total viewers with 2.41m in the key demographic. This 1.9 demo rating continues to be an average showing for the series, on par with the previous five episodes of the series.

Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's acclaimed comic, "Preacher" stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Jesse's ex-girlfriend Tulip, Gilgun as his vampire friend Cassidy, Colletti as Arseface and Lucy Griffiths as Emily, a character created for the TV show.

Developed for television by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin, "Preacher" airs Sundays at 9 pm EST on AMC.

CAPASR2016001-int3-1-fd22b

This week sees the release of the gorgeous-looking Captain America #1 by Nick Spencerand Jesus Saiz.

And it will utterly change the history and very nature of Captain America. This was probably the big announcement originally planned by Marvel for yesterday in the wake of DC Universe Rebirth spoilers but it’s looking like it’s now been held back.

So what is it?

Well, it’s not the kiss with Sharon Carter, who notices how much older than Steve she now looks. Not even the liberal-left wing jibe on how unemployment is driving Hydra recruitment.

Because this is the issue in which we get Nick Spencer’s The Anatomy Lesson moment.

The Anatomy Lesson being the second issue of Swamp Thing by Alan Mooreand Steve Bissette where it is revealed that Swamp Thing was never Alec Holland, just the memory of him, preserved in vegetable matter.

Everything you knew was wrong. (Via Bleeding Cool)

SUPERMAN DIES AT MIDNIGHT, AS 2016 CLAIMS ANOTHER (SPOILERS)

Superman-1

You know that moment that everyone cried foul when they discovered that the Ultimate Spider-Man, Peter Parker, would die at the end if the mini-series called The Death Of Ultimate Spider-Man?

Yes, well.

Expect that to happen in Superman #52 at the end of the storyline entitled The Final Days Of Superman that precedes all the Superman Rebirth issues, the solicitations of which have all been talking about Superman having died.

Because, yes, in Superman #52, available at certain stores (and ComiXology) from midnight today and everywhere else on Wednesday at normal opening times, Superman dies. It’s been a rough 2016 hasn’t it?

It isn’t the first time of course. Probably won’t be the last. Hell, even in the New 52, he was meant to have died once at the hands of Doomsday. And, thanks to the Superman of the Pre-52 who managed to make the leap over to the New 52 from Convergence and hide out, they’ve already got a spare.

Oh, and yes, he dies in Wonder Woman’s arms. So that’s nice.

Okay, Lois Lane, you’ve got a headline to write, I think! You’ve written it many times before… but no sign yet of your Superwoman….

A TRIP INSIDE THE WARCRAFT WAR ROOM WITH ROB KAZINSKY

Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Rob Kazinsky, a huge Warcraft fan and the actor playing Orgrim, takes us on a tour of the Warcraft War Room. He explains that this is basically poetic license, as in the game players get their armor and weapons from vendors, from chests or taking them off of dead bad guys. But then again you also don’t play as a soldier for the Alliance or the Horde, your more of a freelancer. So something like this was needed in the film

Warcraft opens June 10th.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE AFTER THE CREDITS SCENE REVEALED

00012687rrr

SPOILERS ahead for X-Men: Apocalypse.

It seems that, like X-Men: Days of Future Past before it, X-Men: Apocalypse will feature a post-credits coda that teases a major villain for an upcoming X-Men film.

It isn't clear whether the scene teases the villain of the as-yet-untitled sequel to The Wolverine -- a real possibility, since it involves the Weapon X project -- or something a little further off, like Gambit or the next X-Men team movie.

What it does is establish that there's someone from the "Essex Corporation" who has a vial of Wolverine's blood. Who's that?

Well, it likely has ties to Nathaniel Essex, the villain known as Mister Sinister. There's also speculation over at Screen Crush that the scene could imply somebody is looking to create a Wolverine of their own -- something that could lead to the creation of X-23.

GOTHAM SEASON 3 VILLAINS TO INCLUDE MAD HATTER, TALON, SOLOMON GRUNDY, AND MORE
05/24/16 @ 9:44 am EST
Source: Comicbook | Categories: Gotham | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Solomon Grundy

With a major cliffhanger wrapping up season two last night, not all Gotham fans may be thinking of which supervillains are coming down the pipeline next.

That's what executive producer John Stephens has to worry about, though -- and in an interview, he revealed that in the wake of Hugo Strange's experiments, we'll be seeing a number of familiar faces popping up in the third season of Fox's hit Batman origin series.

Among those slated for inclusion are The Mad Hatter, Talon, and Solomon Grundy, Stephens said.

"We'll be seeing Mad Hatter in Season 3. We'll be seeing the Tweedle Brothers, too, if we're going to bring the Hatter in. In line with the Court of Owls, we'll be seeing Talon. And, we should be seeing Solomon Grundy," Stephens told CBR.

The Mad Hatter, of course, has been teased a few times already this season. Talon is a memebr of the Court of Owls and a pretty obvious choice for where to go next after their recent introduction.

Solomon Grundy is a bit of a surprise, though. The character was teased but never fully realized in the second season of Arrow. While he was killed, many fans have hoped that he would return in some form (since that's part of Grundy's schtick). Coming to Gotham makes a kind of sense -- he's squared off with Batman quite a few times in the comics -- but at the same time, with such a robust rogues gallery, anytime Batman borrows from somebody else it's going to be a little bit of a head-scratcher.

Gotham will be back in the fall, airing Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
THOR: RAGNOROK'S MARK RUFFALO PROMISES MORE HULK

While doing press for Now You See Me 2, Mark Ruffalo was asked about his next Marvel film, Thor: Ragnarok, which had its official cast announced by the studio several days ago.

"I think it'll be smashing. You'll see a lot more Hulk in this one," Ruffalo said of Hulk's return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His Now You See Me 2 co-star Woody Harrelson then cut in, asking, "Does The Hulk get Hulk-ier?" To which Ruffalo replied, "The Hulk gets Hulk-ier. The Hulk Hulks out. Hulk-ier and bigger."

Entertainment Tonight's Lauren Zima then brought up Cate Blanchett, who has now been confirmed to be playing the Asgardian Goddess of Death, Hela. Which is not a surprise to Ruffalo, as he kind of let that cat out of the bag back in January.

"She plays the worst of the worst. So evil," Ruffalo teased. "She is going to kill us. It's such a great part she gets to play."

Ruffalo concluded the interview by describing the film as "an intergalactic buddy road movie with Banner and Thor."

DISNEY RELEASES NEW LOOK AT PETE'S DRAGON

petesdragon

Walt Disney Pictures has released (via Empire) a new image of Pete's fuzzy dragon, Elliott.

Elliott from the 1977 film was a cartoon dragon with lime green skin, a goofy-grin, tiny pink wings, and a mop of pink colored hair. For the upcoming reboot, as you can see in the image above, Elliott underwent a dramatic makeover.

So, why the fur? “When I went to pitch the movie to Disney, I said ‘I want him to be a furry dragon’. Pete is supposed to be cuddling up with the dragon, so let’s make him furry,” director David Lowery told Empire. “I wanted him to feel not like aGame Of Thrones or Harry Potter dragon.”

“A lot of [Elliott] is a dog, because people relate to dogs, but I’m a big cat person,” he added. “There’s a seagull in there, and a tiger. Ultimately, it comes down to trying to make a 20 foot tall pet.”
