wonder_woman_stamps

She can fly, has superhuman strength and wields a pair of indestructible bracelets forged from Zeus’ shield. And now, she can carry your postage across the country for only 47 cents. The U.S. Postal Service is celebrating the 75th anniversary of DC Comics’ iconic heroine Wonder Woman with a set of commemorative stamps, part of its non-denominational Forever series.

The stamps debuted at Comic Con in San Diego this weekend and feature four different images of Wonder Woman from her Gold Age, Silver Age, Bronze Age and Modern incarnations. This isn’t Wonder Woman’s first “stamping ovation,” according to the Postal Service. She received panes in 2006 and 1988, alongside Batman, Superman, Supergirl and other luminaries of the DC universe.

Brie Larson Is Captain Marvel

cogouhbviaadpbs-jpg-large

Marvel Studios officially confirmed at their San Diego Comic-Con panel that Brie Larson (Room, Short Term 12, Kong: Skull Island) will star as Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, in their upcoming feature film!

In the regular Marvel Comics continuity, Carol Danvers made her first appearance in 1968’s “Marvel Super-Heroes” #13. A Security Chief in the US air force, Danvers would later be transformed  into the superhero Ms. Marvel following an explosion involving Kree technology. More recently, Danvers took on the identity of Captain Marvel after being “promoted” to the moniker of the former Kree superhero.

Little is known regarding Marvel’s specific plans for Captain Marvel outside of the fact that the film will feature the Danvers version of the character. It was confirmed last year that a Captain Marvel cameo was, at one point, part of the script for Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explained that the decision was ultimately made not to rush her appearance. It was also recently reported that Captain Marvel will make her debut in Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War, which is set to begin production in November. The first part of Infinity War is scheduled to hit the big screen May 4, 2018 with the second half following on May 3, 2019. Between those two films will be Captain Marvel, which arrives March 8, 2019.

Brie Larson is no stranger to comic book adaptations. She played Envy Adams in Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs the World.

Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) are scripting Captain Marvel, which does not yet have a director attached.
