Mondo Unveils Fantastic Four Line

Mondo is excited to announce their official license for Marvel’s First Family: The Fantastic Four. For the first time ever, and available at MondoShop.com beginning March 5, the pop culture shop unveils products across categories for the popular comic characters. 

Created by the legendary Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, these “heroes with hang-ups” and their iconic cast of supporting characters represent a beloved corner of the Marvel Universe and are truly near and dear to Mondo’s comic-loving hearts. More than any other of Marvel’s Silver Age heroes, the Fantastic Four transcends traditional costumed heroics, instead focusing on stories about a tight knit family of adventurers.

   

The new collection begins with a pair of limited edition posters, each of which will also have an even more limited variant. “Fantastic Four: Galactus,” from artist Killian Eng, features the planet-eating cosmic entity that’s not exactly a villain but also in no way a hero. The $50 full-color print will be available in an edition of 225.

The $60 black-and-white variant will feature an edition of only 100. Both posters measure 24×36.

The other pair of posters, titled “Fantastic Four: Silver Surfer,” comes from artist Dániel Taylor. As the title suggests, these posters focus on the Silver Surfer, a frequent player in Fantastic Four stories who was first introduced in the comics as a herald of Galactus. The blue-tinted $50 version of Taylor’s print will be available in an edition of 175.

The $75 variant, which splashes in some purple alongside the blue, will be available in an edition of 100.

These posters should ship sometime in May.

In addition to posters, there are a handful of other offerings for the First Family. Mondo is happy to finally be able to meet the amazing demand for Tom Whalen’s longstanding Marvel enamel pin series with all-new pins featuring brilliant scientist: Mr. Fantastic, the world’s most powerful woman: The Invisible Woman, her hot-headed brother: The Human Torch, and everyone’s favorite cantankerous pilot: The Thing! To stand alongside them is a gorgeous, polished metal Silver Surger pin, against the Lifebringer, Galactus, in a tastefully oversized pin. Finally, every good hero needs a great villain, and there truly is none greater than Doctor Doom!

And last but not least, Mondo is excited to announce an additional Marvel inspired vinyl slipmats with a new Fantastic Four slipmat! Designed by Bruce Yan, this slipmat features the team’s iconic ‘4’ logo on Side A, and the infamous Doctor Doom on Side B.

This First WandaVision Photo Previews Elizabeth Olsen & Paul Bettany’s 1950s Look

During the recent Marvel Studios panel at the 2019 CCXP, Marvel’s chief creative officer Kevin Feige has debuted the first image from Disney+’s highly-anticipated MCU series WandaVision, featuring Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany’s Vision as a happy 1950s’ couple. The series is scheduled to be release in the Spring of 2021.

Set in the 1950s, WandaVision will follow the story of Olson and Paul Bettany’s superhero characters Scarlet Witch and Vision from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It will also star Teyonah Parris as the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, a character who first made her appearance in this year’s Captain Marvel. The series is expected to be the first show that Marvel Studios is producing for Disney+ with Jac Schaeffer (Captain Marvel) serving as the its producer, showrunner and writer.

Scarlet Witch and Vision were last seen in last summer’s blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, though the duo parted on rather depressing terms. Scarlet Witch attempted, nay, destroyed the infinity stone inside Vision’s head, thus killing the man she loved. Except Thanos used the time stone in his gauntlet to undo her actions, which brought Vision back to life … but then he died again when Thanos removed the stone from his head and completed his quest to collect all the infinity stones. The infamous snap heard ’round the universe then effectively turned Scarlet Witch to ash.

Disney‘s streaming service is the exclusive home in the U.S. for subscription-video-on-demand viewing of the newest live action and animated series and movies from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel and Fox. The service is ad-free, supported solely by subscription fees, and is available on gaming consoles, smart TV’s, and connected streaming devices.

After Lunella accidentally brings Devil Dinosaur into present-day New York City via a time vortex, the duo works together to protect the city’s Lower East Side from danger.

 The news was announced today by Laurence Fishburne during Disney Television Animation’s panel at Disney’s D23 Expo. Fishburne said, “As an avid comic book fan, I am thrilled to be involved with ‘Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.’ Disney Channel is the perfect platform to explore this pint-sized female African American superhero and I can’t wait for their audience to enjoy the lighthearted adventures of Lunella and Devil Dinosaur.”

Black Panther starred Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Academy Award nominee Angela Bassett, with Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis. Ryan Coogler directed the film and is on board to return for the sequel.
