Source: Marvel | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment

“Avengers VS X-Men” Spurs Historic First Major Comic Book AR Initiative Yesterday, at the SXSW Interactive Festival, Marvel Entertainment unveiled Marvel AR, the first major augmented reality app from a comic book company. As part of the recently announced Marvel ReEvolution, which brings the world of print and digital media together for a comics experience like never before, the Marvel AR app powered by Aurasma will be released on April 2 for iOS and Android devices. Fans can first discover the power of this new app in Avengers VS X-Men #1, arriving in comic stores on April 4 and kicking off the comic book event of the year in which the world’s most popular Super Heroes go to war!

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.

The next stop on the time-traveling adventure of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" is 1986, with members of the squad captured and imprisoned in a Russian gulag in the midst of the Cold War. In 15 new images released by The CW, the team does not seem to love the '80s -- especially Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) and Atom (Brandon Routh), both seen in chains.

HOW THE FLASH RAN ACROSS HELICOPTER BLADES

Special Effects supervisor Armen Kevorkian is back talking about some of the visual effects we’ve seen in The Flash. He shows us how they made Weather Wizard fly,Barry Allen jump across helicopter blades and make Tar Pit look really cool. This is also an easy way to show the differences between the visuals of Arrow and The Flash as here we focus on the effects but with Arrow it’s about the practical stunts.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 PM on the CW.

The CW has just released a new trailer for the rest of The Flash season 2. This shows us many snippets including Earth-2 Barry Allen trying to inspire Barry of Earth-1, Jay Garrick using his speed again, Zoom coming through the wall of Harrison Well’s old secret room and a woman red leather, wearing a red domino mask and carrying a gun… oh, and more King Shark. Looks like things are going to be crazy from here on out.

Deadline reports that Fox has ordered an hour-long pilot based on the Warner Bros. Lethal Weapon film series.

Damon Wayans will play Roger Murtaugh, the part originally played by Danny Glover in all four of the Lethal Weapon films from 1987 to 1998. No one has yet been cast as Martin Riggs, the part originated by Mel Gibson.

As in the original film, written by Shane Black and directed by Richard Donner, Murtaugh will be partnered up with a loose cannon detective who might be suicidal. Unlike the backstory of the films, Riggs will be a recent transplant from Texas following the deaths of his wife and child. Murtaugh, meanwhile, will have recently suffered a mild heart attack and will be under orders to avoid too much stress.

Charlie’s Angels feature director McG will direct the pilot.

MARVEL LAUNCHES BLACK PANTHER #1 WITH RETAILER EXCLUSIVE VARIANTS

It started with IDW’s launch of the Godzilla comic. DC Comics recently adopted it for the launch of Dark Knight III. And Image banned it for any of their single issues.

But the retailer exclusive cover, where a store or a show or a subscription box pay for hundreds or thousands of comics with their own store-specific cove has proved rather popular. Initially at least.

Well, Marvel is now launching Black Panther #1 with a series of retailer exclusive variant covers. By Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze, "A Nation Under Our Feet" is a story about dramatic upheaval in Wakanda and the Black Panther’s struggle to do right by his people as their ruler.

And now each retailer can put their logo over a cover of their choice for it.

This is a prestigious moment from Marvel. The last Marvel issue to get the honor was the upcoming C-3PO Special.
