Meet The Saviors of San Fransokyo In Big Hero Six

When the city of San Fransokyo is in danger, a group of youngsters comes together to take down evil, science-style, in the Disney/Marvel animated film Big Hero 6 (in theaters Nov. 7). Directors Don Hall and Chris Williams provide the rundown on this new superhero team.

Hiro Hamada

Hiro Hamada (voiced by Ryan Potter)

Like the 18-year-old playing him, Hiro is a half-Japanese, half-Caucasian kid with energy to spare. Luckily for his hometown, though, Hiro is also a super-genius who turns his nurse robot, Baymax, into a formidable, action-movie presence when a threat arises. And while he doesn’t have any actual superpowers per se, Hiro dons a flight suit with a red circle on the glove that magnetically connects to the back of Baymax, and they can act as a tag team in battle, Hall says. “They’re symbiotic in that way.”

Baymax

Baymax (Scott Adsit)

Because the character was so special to the filmmakers, they cast a wide net to find the right performer. Adsit, a comedian and former star of 30 Rock, brings both comedy and humanity to Baymax, who evolves from a passive robot into a figure ready for a fight. Adsit has such sharp timing, Williams says, that “there are moments when there’s real emotion that seems to poke through without breaking the rules of Baymax being a robot.”

Fred

Fred (T.J. Miller)

Miller, a scholar of storytelling and comedy, melds humor and nerdiness for Fred, a big sci-fi and comic-book geek, Hall says. Fred’s really into monster movies, and he inhabits a huge, tentacled “Fredzilla” creature suit — piloted from one of its three eyes — that’s designed to be an homage to Godzillaand other Japanese kaiju movies of old. It can do some amazing things, too, Hall says. “He can jump really high, and he breathes wicked fire out of that mouth.”

Go Go

Go Go Tomago (Jamie Chung)

Hall wanted a woman of few words for the group, and Go Go is a laconic Clint Eastwood type and industrial-engineering student who’s pretty tough from the get-go. “The rest of the team are pretty hapless initially,” he says. “She’s the only one who can take care of herself.” She has also developed a bike with magnetic-levitation technology, which Hiro incorporates into her supersuit. “She can roll around on these mag-lev discs, and they can detach on a whim and become blades she can throw.”

Honey

Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez)

A chemistry student, Honey is the glue that holds the group together because of her empathetic, sweet personality and positive attitude. While that — and her girlie duds — doesn’t exactly scream superhero material, she goes through one of the sharpest evolutions of the bunch, Williams says. Plus, Rodriguez herself is smart and was into science and robotics in school, Hall adds. “She brings some of that goofy, slightly geeky but joyful thing to the character.”

Wasabi

Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.)

This poor guy doesn’t know what to do when first faced with battling evil, though he does have really cool plasma-induced lasers that come out of his arms. “When those things turn on, they can cut through anything,” Hall says. The conservative dude is the most cautious about his do-gooder role. “He’s this huge guy, but his whole thing is precision and rules, and by the end of the movie, he moves away from that and embraces the chaos of what being a superhero is all about.”

Marvel Announces New Female Thor

Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, Thor, written by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder, Original Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).

 This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new Thor: God of Thunder. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name Thor. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?

“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”

Series writer Jason Aaron emphasizes, “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is Thor. This is the Thor of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”

Thor is the latest in the ever-growing and long list of female-centric titles that continues to invite new readers into the Marvel Universe. This female Thor is the 8th title to feature a lead female protagonist and aims to speak directly to an audience that long was not the target for Super Hero comic books in America: women and girls.

Marvel & Stephen King Unveil A First Look At The Next Chapter In The Dark Tower Epic

Marvel, in collaboration with Stephen King, is excited to release a first look at color art of the newest chapter in the Dark Tower series – Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner # 1. Beginning in September 2014, New York Times Best-Selling writers Peter David & Robin Furth along with critically acclaimed artist Piotr Kowalski and colorist Nick Filardi bring the action from Mid-World to our world as the epic series returns!

Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner marks another milestone for the graphic fiction sensation that’s captivated fans worldwide as the saga moves to the second volume of King’s magnum opus. And as the action shifts from the dusty plains of Mid-World to the mean streets of New York City – old and new fans alike will experience the rich and vibrant world of The Dark Tower in new and interesting ways.

As this tale of urban crime opens, you’ll meet Eddie Dean as an innocent child who grows into a troubled young man gifted with the ability to open doors to other worlds. Can he survive family tragedy, a haunting addiction, and the deadly forces that conspire to stop him from challenging the Man in Black? Eddie faces trials and tribulations at every turn – and the badlands of Mid-World can’t hold a candle to the dangers of Brooklyn in the 1960s! Witness the story of a young man on the path to an unlikely destiny and the most important journey of his life.

“The artistic team of Piotr Kowalski and Nick Filardi will take you on a bone-chilling visual journey into the depths of one man’s soul,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “Crafted to satisfy even the most experienced constant reader, but also created to be completely accessible for new readers, this series delivers all the drama, pathos, humor, and horror you’ve come to expect from master storyteller Stephen King.”

 A bold new chapter begins as the landmark series makes its historic return to comic shops this September in Stephen King’s Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner # 1on sale September 3, 2014.

Captain America # 25 Asks – Who Is The New Captain America?

This October, bear witness to the next exciting phase of the Marvel Universe, as the torch is passed and a new hero will rise. Today, Marvel is proud to officially unveil the cover to Captain America #25 – the extra sized issue from chart-topping writer Rick Remender and the epic finale to The Tomorrow Soldier arc. Remender and artist Carlos Pacheco will have fans on the edge of their seat and have the whole comic industry asking – ‘Who is the All-New Captain America’?

Steve Rogers is a frail, broken man. Drained of the Super Soldier serum by a fearsome new enemy, he can no longer wield the shield as Captain America. The mind willing, but the body unable – the Sentinel of Liberty must choose his successor. But who will carry the mantle?

“The choice he has before him as to who he’s going to select as his replacement seems very simple at this point – it’s a short list – but we’re revealing a number of characters in #23 who’ve been gone for a while, that decision gets a little trickier,” says Remender in an interview with Marvel.com.

Elaborating on the new Captain America, Remender said “It offers up a lot of new drama as well as getting to tell Captain America stories with an entirely different character, a character I have a real affinity for and like to write. I think fans will dig what we’ve got coming up.”

The Red Skull and Zola have joined forces and the invasion by Dimension Z has begun. In the shadow of the coming storm, a new Captain America will rise – but who will pick up the shield and fill the void Steve Rogers left behind? Find out when history is made this October in the super-soldier-sized Captain America # 25.

Guardians of The Galaxy opens in theaters on August 1, 2014.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

Marvel Reveals The Cover For Stephen King’s The Prisoner # 1

Marvel, in collaboration with Stephen King, is proud to announce the new chapter in the Dark Tower series – The Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner. Beginning in September 2014, New York Times Best-Selling writers Peter David & Robin Furth along with critically acclaimed artist Piotr Kowalski bring the action from Mid-World to our world as the epic series returns!

The Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner marks another milestone for the graphic fiction sensation that’s captivated fans worldwide as the saga moves to the second volume of King’s magnum opus. And as the action shifts from the dusty plains of Mid-World to the mean streets of New York City – old and new fans alike will experience the rich and vibrant world of The Dark Tower in new and interesting ways.

As this tale of urban crime opens, you’ll meet Eddie Dean as an innocent child who grows into a troubled young man gifted with the ability to open doors to other worlds.

Eddie faces trials and tribulations at every turn – and the badlands of Mid-World can’t hold a candle to the dangers of Brooklyn in the 1960s! Witness the story of a young man on the path to an unlikely destiny and the most important journey of his life.

“To borrow some successful branding, this is the ‘All-New Marvel NOW’ version of The Dark Tower. As we now travel from The Gunslinger to The Drawing of The Three, we are refocusing our spotlight to explore the histories and events that led to the formation of the Ka-Tet that aided the gunslinger Roland Deschain on his quest to defeat the Man in Black and the Crimson King,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “But instead of encountering Eddie Dean later in his life, as you do in the novel, we zoom back to 1964 and meet him as a toddler, so while we are adapting the second novel, we’re weaving together events in a new way that will hopefully surprise and entertain everyone who has already read the book. We’re ‘assembling the Avengers’ of the Dark Tower universe, but Robin Furth, Peter David, and Piotr Kowalski are doing so in a way that you’ve never imagined.

A bold new chapter begins as the landmark series makes its historic return to comic shops on September 17, 2014 in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner # 1.
