Everyone's favorite pin-up queen and icon of femininity, Bettie Page, continues her classified adventures this April with a new series from Dynamite Entertainment and a deluxe set of Bettie cards for collectors!
'FALCON AND WINTER SOLDIER' POSTER TEASES SAM'S NEW CAP-INSPIRED SUIT08/25/19 @ 7:24 pm EST
Welcome to Bettie Page: Unbound aka the Crisis on Infinite Betties! The Lovecraftian Great Old One Yog-Sothoth has established himself as an inter-dimensional archnemesis for everyone's favorite super model/spy (see the fan favorite Bettie Page Halloween Special!). The monstrous being is opening a dimensional gate to kick off an invasion of Earth, collapsing reality itself in the process. Bettie takes the initiative, as always, to run right into the eye of the storm. Suddenly she finds herself a barbarian queen in the ancient past and will stumble into other multiversal freaky Friday situations. Every Bettie Page issue to this point has been leading to this epic climax.
David Avallone (Elvira, Doc Savage: Ring of Fire) brings the whole gang back for this exciting new chapter. Joining their ingenious writer ringleader are artist Julius Ohta (Sherlock Holmes: Vanishing Man), colorist Ellie Wright (Sherlock Holmes: Vanishing Man) and letterer Taylor Esposito (Batman, Aquaman, Elvira). The team cannot wait to continue uncovering Bettie's secret sagas for fans.
On the cover art front, Bettie is "unbound" from the attitudes of her time and free to express herself in a way she would surely enjoy - cosplay! The Queen of Curves dons a certain Dynamite flagship hero's iconic chainmail armor for a main cover by John Royle (Project Superpowers, G.I. Joe). Fans of Bettie and other Dynamite heroines can look out for a Vampirella variant and possibly more... Scott Chantler (Northwest Passage) returns with his cute take on Bettie's timeless appeal as well. David Williams (Justice League of America) and Julius Ohta round out the options. Of course no Bettie Page comic book is complete without photo variants highlighting her incomparable looks and charm.
Avallone will not shut up about the new series, so without further ado, here is what he had to say, "I never imagined going quite this 'big' with Bettie… but this 'Crisis' idea sounded like so much fun, I really wanted to write it. Having passed that hurdle, my first question was… do I get to keep my amazing team? And the answer, thankfully, was yes."
Proceeding to gush over his team, Avallone said, "Julius Ohta is a dream collaborator: he has a true gift for likeness (his Bettie IS Bettie), a great sense of pace and drama, and he shares my obsession with period detail, costumes, props, settings, etc. On top of all that, the art itself is, objectively, beautiful to look at. Colorist Ellie Wright is relatively new, but I think her work on Bettie so far demonstrates world-class talent and if she’s this good so early in her career I can’t even imagine how astonishing she’ll be down the road. Taylor Esposito is – to quote Warren Ellis just the other day – 'one of the best letterers of his generation' – and I couldn’t agree more. Who am I to argue with Warren?"
“Bettie Page will not be bound by the human constructs of time and space. Not even a little! She’s going to get out there and give it 110% and make sure there is a multiverse safe for you and me," said editor Kevin Ketner in a far more concise manner.
The Bettie Page legacy is coming up on 70 years of inspiring and appealing to men and women alike. The perfect way to celebrate in addition to the new comic series is the Bettie Page Ultra-Premium Deluxe Trading Cards. Bettie's timeless All-American sensuality and playfulness is captured expertly by top of the line artists included in this set including Joseph Michael Linsner, David Williams, John Royle, Scott Chantler and more! Also included are some of the most iconic photographs of the beauty legend. Dynamite will also be bringing in the hottest sketch card artists for one-of-a-kind exclusive pieces. Every individual foil pack includes 2 Base Cards, 2 Sketch Cards, 1 special black & white card, 1 puzzle card, and 1 autographed card.
Bettie Page Unbound #1 and the Bettie Page Ultra-Premium Deluxe Trading Cards will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ February 2019 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in April 2019. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies with their local comic book retailers. It will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more!

'MARVEL'S HERO PROJECT' HEADING TO DISNEY+ ON NOVEMBER 1208/25/19 @ 6:51 pm EST
Tom Holland opened up about Spider-Man’s future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following news that Disney and Sony have failed to reach a deal on new films, Entertainment Weekly
Holland stopped by EW’s studio backstage at Disney’s D23 Expo where he addressed the news that Disney has no new plans to include Spider-Man in future MCU films.
“Basically, we’ve made five great movies,” Holland told EW. “It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige also spoke to EW about his reaction to the Spider-Man news. He served as producer on Holland’s two solo films and will not produce any future films for Sony.
“I’m feeling about Spider-Man gratitude and joy,” Feige said. “We got to make five films within the MCU with Spider-Man: two standalone films and three with the Avengers. It was a dream that I never thought would happen. It was never meant to last forever. We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”

In life, it doesn’t take wearing a suit of iron, carrying a mythical hammer or swinging from spider webs to be a real hero. Sometimes the person who can make a positive difference in the world is the person who simply sees a problem and has the passion to find a creative solution. The first of its kind for Marvel Entertainment, the 20-episode series shares the remarkable, positive change several young heroes are making in their own communities across the country. These inspiring kids have dedicated their lives to selfless acts of bravery and kindness, and now, Marvel celebrates them as the true Super Heroes they are by welcoming them into Marvel's Hero Project.

Doing great work, and not letting their age be a deterrent," said series executive producer Sana Amanat. During the panel, the producers all agreed that these stories were important to share on a platform like Disney+ because these individuals embodied the spirit of our Marvel characters in that we can all overcome challenges to do good in the world. Stephen Wacker added, "Taking the story of a normal kid who is living their life and now having them face these hurdles. That’s what we do. We find out what all these kids’ powers are.” These special kids that were highlighted to prove that heroes and inspirations are everywhere around us, and you don't have to have any special powers to become a hero yourself.
The series will tackle subjects such as Hailey who helps loved ones with Alzheimer's make connections through puzzles to a young boy who grows an urban garden to feed the hungry despite his own family's financial hardships. Sarah Amos, series producer shared on the panel, "Anyone can watch this show and feel like they can go out and do something. It helps families talk about difficult issues."
Before wrapping up the panel, the creatives behind the series revealed that not only will each young Hero will receive their very own personalized comic book starring them. Steve Wacker explained, "Marvel Comics is the heart of what we do, and to see yourself on one of those covers is truly one of the coolest surprise for these kids." And viewers can expect some very special guests surprising them as well. Sana Amanat added about the kids featured on the show, "They are truly Marvel Super Heroes now, and they deserve to be."
Marvel’s Hero Project is produced by Marvel New Media in partnership with Maggievision Productions.

Geeks WorldWideD23: 'BLACK MIRROR' STAR WYATT RUSSELL WILL PLAY U.S. AGENT IN 'FALCON & THE WINTER SOLDIER'08/25/19 @ 5:49 pm EST
is reporting that Marvel’s classic shape-shifting anti-hero Werewolf by Night, aka Jack Russell, will soon make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The site's sources weren’t clear on where Werewolf will first appear, but the freshly-announced Disney+ Moon Knight
series is a possibility since Moon Knight made his comics debut in Werewolf by Night
#32 and they have had strong ties ever since.
Werewolf also has major connections to Blade and Dracula, and with the former due to get his own solo MCU film soon, it wouldn’t be shocking to see him show up there.
GWW also reports a spin-off for Werewolf is a possibility, but whether as a TV series or film is unknown.

MCU Exchange‘MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.’ UNLEASHES FINAL SEASON TRAILER08/25/19 @ 5:42 pm EST
reports that Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes will soon face a threat unlike any other in their upcoming Disney+ series The Falcon & the Winter Soldier
in the form of John Walker aka the U.S. Agent. Black Mirror
star and Kurt Russell‘s son Wyatt Russell will play the not-so-evil version of Captain America.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of U.S. Agent possibly appearing in the MCU. Just a few weeks back, a leak surfaced online saying that the character would appear in this very show.
This confirmation gives us an indication of just what the story might be. In the wake of Cap’s relinquishing of the shield and mantle formerly owned by the government, the powers that be are likely not too happy that they weren’t consulted on the matter. Their response? To create another Cap in their image.

reports that forthcoming Disney+ series Loki
has found its director.
The series will see Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki, the God of Mischief and baby brother of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), after he escaped from the Battle of New York in Avengers: Endgame
Director Kate Herron finally revealed in a tweet that she would be directing Loki.
“Secret is out! So happy to say I’m directing #Loki for@MarvelStudios,” Herron wrote. “It’s a privilege to continue his story, working with the superb @twhiddleston & @michaelwaldron. Also sorry to pals who guessed this was the secret job and I lied to your faces. Think Loki would approve though.”
Herron skimped on providing any other details about her involvement with the show, but that’s pretty much par for the course.
