Grey Matter Art To Release Thor Print By Matt Ferguson On August 20, 2015

Grey Matter Art, under license from Marvel Studios is proud to present a new officially licensed, limited edition screen print for the super-hero action film, “Thor.” This is the first poster Grey Matter Art has produced for “Thor” and has chosen to work with the very talented artist, Matt Ferguson. This is the second release with Matt, and it is a great companion piece to his previously released “Iron Man” Poster.

Here is what Matt Ferguson had to say about the project:

“Thor is one of the best subjects to make a poster about because it is unique film in the Marvel Universe. I love the cosmic aspect to the setting crossed with a strong fantasy vibe. I tried to get that across in my poster by using the rainbow bridge and Bifrost. I also wanted the composition to fit in with the Iron Man poster I have already produced for Grey Matter Art but give the art a more pulpy sci-fi edge.”

Mike Gregory added:

“Working with Matt again has been such a great experience. This project was so fun to work on and amazing to finally see what he came up with in the end. I really like how this poster and his previous Iron Man work so well together. Matt is a fantastic artist and I am always excited to see what he has coming up.”

This poster will be released on Thursday, August 20th on our website shop page at a random time between 1:00-2:00 PM est. at www.greymatterart.com.

Marvel Announces New Spider-Man Comic Book Series, Spidey

1

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!

Hugh Jackman Reveals Wolverine Teaser Image

Following its debut during 20th Century’s Fox feature film presentation at Comic-Con International, early teaser art for the upcoming Untitled Wolverine Sequel has now officially been released by none other than Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman. The Academy Award nominee tweeted the design along with the request that fans tweet him back with the hashtag #OneLastTime and explain what they want to see from his final big screen appearance as the Marvel Comics character.

“My last time putting on the claws,” Jackman reiterates in his post. “What do you want to see happen? 50 words or less. I’ll read as many as I can.”

Although it’s far from confirmed, Jackman hinted during the panel earlier this month that Mark Millar and Steven McNiven’s popular “Old Man Logan” storyline may very well factor into the new film. To be directed by James Mangold (who, in addition to helming The Wolverine, worked with Jackman on Kate & Leopold), the new film is penned by David James Kelly. It will arrive in theaters March 3, 2017, following the 2016 X-Men universe films Deadpool, X-Men: Apocalypse and Gambit, arriving February 15, May 27 and October 7, respectively.

New Photo of The Dark Knight From Batman v Superman Debuts

Something you may have noticed in the second trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a scene where Batman was wearing what appears to be a soldier disguise. The set photographer for the film, Clay Enos, has revealed a new promo shot of Ben Affleck’s dark knight in that exact outfit.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman.

Directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, the film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to open worldwide on March 25, 2016.

The Arrow) left Starling City with the hopes of beginning a new life. But will Oliver ever truly be able to leave behind his past as the Arrow, and, if so, what becomes of the team he has worked so hard to assemble? Will Diggle, Thea, and Laurel be left to continue Oliver’s crusade without him? And with Malcolm Merlyn having ascended to the top of the League of Assassins as the new Ra’s al Ghul, is anyone really safe? “Arrow” will premiere its fourth season on Wednesday, October 7 at 8:00pm ET/PT.

Batman: The Killing Joke Coming As An Animated Movie

01-cover

Following the release of Justice League: Gods and Monsters, the next DC Entertainment animated feature will be Batman: The Killing Joke.

Due out in 2016, the story will be an adaptation of the controversial and acclaimed original graphic novel by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland. In the comics, The Joker escapes Arkham, shoots and paralyzes Barbara Gordon in order to terrorize her father, Gotham City Police Commissioner Jim Gordon.

There’s no word yet on casting — the film itself was just announced by Bruce Timm at the Comic Con International: San Diego panel for Justice League: Gods and Monsters — but veteran Joker actor Mark Hamill has said in the past that he would un-retire the character for an adaptation of The Killing Joke.

Other animated films announced for 2016 – Batman: Bad Blood featuring Batwoman, and Justice League vs Titans.
