Marvel’s New Iron Man Is A Black Woman

1

There’s a new Iron Man. Well, Iron Man for now. She’s still working on the name. The events at the end of the comic book event series Civil War II will result in Tony Stark stepping out of the Iron Man suit and a new character, Riri Williams, taking over, Marvel tells TIME. (Note: Tony’s departure doesn’t mean you know the end to Civil War II yet.)

Riri is a science genius who enrolls in MIT at the age of 15. She comes to the attention of Tony when she builds her own Iron Man suit in her dorm. Creator and Iron Man writer Brian Michael Bendis spoke exclusively to TIME about the creation of Riri Williams with book artist Stefano Caselli and Marvel’s increasingly diverse cast of characters.

Grey Matter Art To Release Iron Man Print By Gabz On September 2, 2015

Grey Matter Art, under license from Marvel Studios is proud to present a New Officially Licensed, Limited Edition Screen Print for the Classic Super-Hero Action Film, “Iron Man.” This is the second poster Grey Matter Art has produced for “Iron Man” and has chosen to work with the very talented artist, Grzegorz Domaradzki (Gabz). There are 3 separate editions for this poster, a Regular & Variant Edition, as well as a Gold Foil Edition. The subtle use of gold foil is used very selectively and really lends itself well to this poster. Below are details regarding the poster and release date.

Here is what the artist had to say about the project:

“When growing up I was a huge comic book fan, reading everything comics related I could get my hands on (which, in Eastern Europe wasn’t as easy as one might think). I used to copy my favourite artists and draw my own stories. Back in the day working for comic giant such as Marvel seemed like an impossible dream, so as soon as I heard the GMA guys are getting the license for Marvel films, I had a number of titles I wanted to tackle. I was thrilled and excited to work on Jon Favreau’s: Iron Man, by far my favorite and best Marvel film (next to The Guardians of the Galaxy). I enjoy it greatly every time I see it. I wanted the composition to reflect the conflict between good and evil by dividing the canvas into two parts. Since I was always drawn towards villains in those type of movies I decided to build the composition around Obadiah’s sinister headshot (one cannot really dislike The Dude). It wouldn’t be a complete Iron Man poster without Tony Stark, Pepper Potts and Iron Man’s classic pose. I hope the fans of the movie will appreciate it. I know for sure I had a blast doing it and I’m very happy with cleverly used foil this time around.”

This poster will be released on Wednesday, September 2nd on the Grey Matter Art website shop page at a random time between 1:00-2:00 PM (EST) at www.greymatterart.com

SWL203101

Disney announced a line-up of new attractions and entertainment coming to its theme parks around the world during the D23 Expo 2015 in Anaheim, Calif.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek gave 7,500 lucky fans a behind-the-scenes look at what’s to come.  He was joined by Imagineers working on these projects as well as legendary filmmakers James Cameron and Jon Landau who shared new details about Pandora – The World of Avatar including the names of the land and E-ticket attraction – Avatar Flight of Passage.  Fans also got a chance to see Marvel legend Stan Lee in a cameo appearance where he posed as an unsuspecting fan during Iron Man’s dramatic entrance.

Among the many announcements Chapek shared were new and enhanced Star Wars experiences coming later this year to the Florida and California theme parks, plans for a new Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and more details on Pandora—The World of Avatar, which is already under construction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Chapek also shared that Soarin’ Around the World will make its U.S. film debut at Epcot and Disney California Adventure taking guests to new places around the world.  Additionally, fans got a preview of exclusive video of the first Marvel attraction planned for Disney parks, coming to Hong Kong Disneyland in 2016.

“From Disneyland’s 60th anniversary celebration to the anticipation of Shanghai Disney Resort, we’re in the midst of unprecedented growth and expansion around the globe,” said Chapek. “With these new announcements, we continue our legacy in creating innovative attractions, worldwide entertainment, and magical lands that take our guests into the worlds of stories they love.”

In addition to these announcements, Chapek talked about the exciting news announced earlier in the day by Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company Bob Iger for plans to bring Star Wars-themed lands to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando and Disneyland park in Anaheim.  Each 14-acre land will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet with two signature attractions, including a customized secret mission on the Millennium Falcon and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle.

Details on each of the projects include:

Star Wars Enhancements & New Experiences

The reimagining of Disney’s Hollywood Studios will take guests to infinity and beyond, allowing them to step into the worlds of their favorite films, starting with Toy Story Land.  This new 11-acre land will transport guests into the adventurous outdoors of Andy’s backyard.  Guests will think they’ve been shrunk to the size of Woody and Buzz as they are surrounded by oversized toys that Andy has assembled using his vivid imagination.  Using toys like building blocks, plastic buckets and shovels, and game board pieces, Andy has designed the perfect setting for this land, which will include two new attractions for any Disney park and one expanded favorite.

Family-friendly roller coaster – All on the back of Slinky Dog, this coaster will zip and zoom, plunge and coast as it takes guests on a fun, toy-filled adventure throughout the new land.

Alien saucers attraction – The famous little green aliens from the movie will take guests around for a spin in their very own flying saucers.  The music, lighting and sound effects add to the flurry of action, while “The Claw” looms over.

Toy Story Mania! – Guests glide into the Toy Story Midway Games Play Set  and take aim at 3D objects in a variety of fast-paced games, with an expansion that adds a third track to this popular attraction.

After Dark at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Pandora – The World of Avatar

As part of the largest expansion in the park’s history, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will immerse guests into the world of Pandora, and the entire park will transform after dark with new nighttime entertainment experiences, offering guests longer days than ever before to experience this one-of-a-kind theme park.

Rivers of Light – Expected to open next spring, Rivers of Light will be an innovative experience unlike anything ever seen in a Disney park, combining live music, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. “Rivers of Light” will magically come to life on the natural stage of Discovery River, delighting guests and truly capping off a full day of adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Kilimanjaro Safaris – This popular attraction will be extended for a new nighttime adventure next spring, where guests will travel through the African savanna amid the magically extended orange glow of the setting sun and discover two species new to the attraction: African wild dogs and hyenas.

Pandora – The World of Avatar – Disney’s Animal Kingdom guests will journey into the magnificent world of Pandora at this new Avatar-themed land – a world that includes floating mountains, a bioluminescent forest and the winged creatures known as Banshees, giving guests a transformational experience they will never forget.

Avatar Flight of Passage – This E-ticket attraction, the centerpiece of Pandora, allows guests to soar on a Banshee over a vast alien world. The spectacular flying experience will give guests a birds-eye view of the beauty and grandeur of the world of Pandora on an aerial rite of passage.

Next year, guests at Epcot in Florida and Disney California Adventure in California will journey to far-flung lands and fly above some of the world’s most unique natural landscapes and man-made wonders when the new Soarin’ Around the World makes its U.S. debut.

This is what Matt had to say about the project:

“It goes without saying that I love Marvel and I love working on Marvel artwork, so this poster is a dream come true. I have always wanted to do my own take on the first Iron Man film and working on this project with Grey Matter Art has been an absolute blast. I was allowed complete freedom to come up with a composition that I felt best suited the film and the character. I love the classic Iron Man ‘ground pound’ pose and so I wanted to incorporate that into the design, I also feel like it is somewhat a companion piece to my Guardians Of The Galaxy/Star Wars poster.”

Iron Man Character Poster For Avengers: Age of Ultron Debuts

Following the two posters that were released yesterday, Robert Downey Jr. revealed the Iron Man character poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron which you can check out below. The actor also said: “And don’t tell ‘em I told you, but there’s a big announcement coming in 8 days… Shhhhhhh… #getexcited” What do you think the announcement is?

In the May 1, 2015 release, when Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, Paul Bettany and Stellan Skarsgard.
