'X-MEN: APOCALYPSE' SET PIC07/28/15 @ 7:21 am EST
Today, he’s the world’s greatest super hero. But long before he swung from rooftops as the Amazing Spider-Man, he was just a spider-powered teenager who knew that “with great power must also come great responsibility.” Today, Marvel is pleased to announce SPIDEY #1
– a brand-new ongoing series launching as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel! Follow the adventures of teenaged Peter Parker in a new series set within continuity from rising star writer Robbie Thompson (TV’s Supernatural, Silk)
and blockbuster Marvel Young Gun artist Nick Bradshaw (Wolverine and the X-Men
,Guardians of the Galaxy
“Everyone remembers their FIRST Spider-Man comic,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “SPIDEY aims to be perfect as someone’s first Spider-Man comic, or their one thousandth. We’re not looking to re-tell stories here. What Robbie [Thompson] and Nick [Bradshaw] have put together is an exciting new take on Spider-Man at his arguably most iconic incarnation, and will feel fresh to new and old fans alike.”
Class is in session as two of the hottest creators in comics take Peter back to school for a classic and iconic take on the Spider-Man mythology. Familiar faces and new characters populate Peter Parker’s world as he balances his double life as a high school student and the high-flying, web-swinging new hero Spider-Man!
“Out of the 700+ issues of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN” shares Spider-Man Editor Nick Lowe, “Peter Parker was only in high school for thirty issues! Stan and Steve covered a lot, but there’s a lot of the high school and early super hero experience still on the table.”
Iconic villains, a classic supporting cast, the ol’ Parker Luck and more are back! Don’t miss one moment of these bombastic new adventures as Thompson and Bradshaw create a legend of their own when SPIDEY #1
comes to comic shops later this year!
SPIDEY #1 Written by ROBBIE THOMPSON

CARA DELEVINGNE PLAYS TWO ROLES IN ONE FOR SUICIDE SQUAD07/27/15 @ 11:14 pm EST
Director Bryan Singer posted another X-men: Apocalypse
promotional photo on his Instagram today, and it’s a big one.
Singer posted a picture of himself from the set looking up at a giant statue of the Egyptian god Anubis, along with the statement, "This takes me back to #raidersofthelostark #notallgreenscreen #xmen #xmenapocalypse." The location likely has to do with Apocalypse’s ancient Egyptian history, and the blue coloring on the statue is similar to Apocalypse’s own look for the film. The picture itself is reminiscent of the Sentinel photo Singer tweeted for X-Men: Days of Future Past
The20th Century Fox promotional machine has already released multiple character pictures.

The first collected edition of Marvel Comics' Star Wars
series will sell between 225,000 and 250,000 copies in its first printing, ComicBook.com has learned exclusively.
That's about five times the average first volume trade collection of Marvel series, which average between 30,000 and 50,000 sales. That also means that Star Wars
is retaining roughly the same number of readers from peridocals to trades, with sales of the first trade translating to roughly 20-25% of the sales of the series' first issue.
When the series launched, Star Wars
#1 sold over a million copies, becoming the top-selling single-issue comic book of the last twenty years. Star Wars
also became the first-ever million-selling periodical comic book sold exclusively through direct market channels without the aid of newsstands.
Since January, Marvel Comics has confirmed for us that Star Wars
comics have moved more than 5 million units in the direct market.
Of course, the trade paperback will be available outside of the direct market, opening up the best-selling series to the bookstore market for the first time.
“When Star Wars #1 was released at the beginning of the year we were thrilled at the reception and the record-setting sales numbers. Once again, Star Wars continues to skyrocket the Marvel name even higher with the anticipated pre-order print-run between 200K and 250K units for Star Wars Vol 1 TPB," said David Gabriel, SVP Print, Sales and Marketing. "This is an unheard of number, but given the success that we’ve had with Star Wars since January, including the insurmountable 5MM units across all the Star Wars’ series, second prints and overprints, we don’t see any issue in reaching such a number of printed copies of this highly anticipated collected edition.”
The series, which takes place between the events of Star Wars
and The Empire Strikes Back
and features all of the major characters from the film, launched in January. It is written by Jason Aaron, with artwork by John Cassaday. While Marvel handled the official adaptations of the original Star Wars
trilogy and had a successful Star Wars
series around the time of their theatrical release, 2015 will be the first time in decades that the publisher has handled the Star Wars
