What happened yesterday? For some reason both Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox revealed images of superheroes in upcoming Marvel tv and movies. Was that coordinated? It certainly dominated the comic book news over rival publisher DC revealing a cast photo for Suicide Squad at a table read. Here’s the five characters we saw yesterday:
Entertainment Weekly had this reveal of Ant-Man battling Yellowjacket. That’s for the Ant-Man movie this Summer that closes out Phase 2 of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. Hit the jump to see 6 more.
Here is the concept art for Archangel in X-Men: Apocalypse. It was announced that Eastenders star Ben Hardy would play Angel/Archangel.
Marvel’s first Netflix tv show, Daredevil, debuted today and yesterday this image of DD in his red suit leaked. I like it.
Here’s what Thing will look like in Fox’s rebooted Fantastic Four movie. It’s good and interesting but the face really could’ve used a bit more work. More of his unique brow would’ve helped, as well as his unique jaw.
We’d seen some leaked images and one short promo, but yesterday was another official promo image for Deadpool. It does the best at capturing the weird, off-color humor of the character.
We’ve seen Deathlok on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. before and he appeared on Tuesday’s episode with a much improved and upgraded appearance. Yesterday there was this official promo image. It makes me wonder if Deathlok could be the rumored spinoff that ABC is developing.
Finally, we have a clear image of Paul Bettany as Vision who will appear in May’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’s an interesting mix of comics accurate (cape, colors) and new ideas (more human appearance including his eyes, suspiciously bright forehead gem).
