  1. Following a wrap on production in November of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniaon, a crew member by the name of Ace Ruele posted an image of himself wearing a shirt that was given as gift to members of the film crew. The shirt depicts Ant-Man's helmet with a big hole in it with a refection of Kang the Conqueror in the upper right corner. Jonathan Majors who first appeared at the end of Loki season 1 on Disney+ is expected to play the role of Kang and be the main bad guy in the upcoming movie which will see Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly return for the lead roles. Though Majors was seen in the Loki series, he was never shown in the Kang outfit or even officially confirmed as being Kang. We did however get to see a statue from a splintered Universe that looked very much like the time traveler. Ruel has since deleted his image from Twitter, but of course not before it spread all over social media.

  7. As you probably know Hasbro has been working towards diminishing the plastic used in their action figure packaging for environmental reasons. This is something we've already started to see with their new Fortnite line which has noticeably less in the way of clear plastic windows on the boxes to see the figure inside. One of the biggest concerns from collectors with this move by Hasbro to reduce the plastic is, not knowing for sure if the intended figure they bought will actually be inside the package when they get home from the store and open it. You see an-all-to common practice in the world of action figures has sadly become what is known as figure swapping. This is when someone takes the new figure out of the packaging and replaces it with something else, usually an older figure no one wants. Sometimes swappers will change the figures right there in the store or they will buy it, take it home, carefully remove the figure from the package and then put an old figure back in. They then take the figure back to the store and return it, counting on the fact the person working the customer service desk isn't familiar enough with the actual product to notice that the figure in the package isn't the actual figure that was originally purchased. Well now it looks like Hasbro may be working on a way to make it more difficult for people to remove the original figure from the packaging with some type of new locking mechanism. Thanks to this patent filed by Hasbro on file at the World Intellectual Property Organization, we can see it looks like they are working on a PACKAGE WITH PRODUCT LOCKING ASSEMBLY. See diagrams below for an idea on how it will work. Here is the official description for it: A package can include a product display panel to which a product is to be secured, the product display panel comprising an opening for receiving a product locking assembly. The product locking assembly can include a locking element having a peg and an extended portion extending from the peg, and the extended portion comprising first and second spaced apart projections, and a receiving element disposed in or attached to the product, the receiving element comprising an aperture having a first end and an inwardly disposed second end. The locking element is adapted to fit through the opening and be inserted into the receiving element to a first position such that product display panel is secured to the product and the first projection extends past the second end of the aperture of the receiving element to prevent the locking element from being removed from the aperture, and the locking element being further adapted to be further inserted into the aperture after removal of the product display panel from the product to a second position such that the second projection extends past the second end of the aperture of the receiving element. It's not clear to me if this is something that would actually be able to totally stop swappers from stealing figures, especially for those who take them home and then return them. I say this mainly because I assume what ever material those straps will be made of would still be something that could be cut with scissors or such. If when the figure is returned, the person working the customer service desk thoroughly inspected the product and noticed the locking mechanism had been tampered with, then you might have something. I just don't know if that would actually happen. My experience when you return something to places like Target or Walmart is, the person just takes the item and tosses it in a basket without hardly looking at it and then processes your return. At the very least though it does sound like this will at least make things harder for the swappers to switch out the figures.
  8. Sony producer Amy Pascal told Fandango in a recent interview that actor Tom Holland will return for another trilogy of Spider-Man movies that will continue to be set in the MCU. “This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel — this is not the last Spider-Man movie. We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel, it just isn’t part of… we’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies,” No Way Home which hits theaters on December 17 is the third movie in the first Holland triology of films which began with Homecoming and Far From Home. In other words the next Spider-Man movie likely won't have the word Home in the title. Advance Ticket sales opened for No Way Home at midnight last night and fans actually bogged down a number of the ticket sales websites such as AMC purchasing tickets for the movie. I think it's a safe assumption that No Way Home will be the biggest box office grossing movie to open since the pandemic began. The only thing that looks to stand in Spidey's way now is the latest COVID variant named Omicron which news broke about this past Thanksgiving holiday weekend. While cases of the Omicron variant have yet to be reported in the US, many experts seem to think that its only a matter of time before that happens. Initial reports indicate the Covid Omicron variant is more contagious than the previous Delta Variant and its possible that it might even have some effect on those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID. With so little is known about the Omicron variant at this time, it's hard to say how it will actually impact things like people willing or able to go to movie theaters by the middle of next month, but I am sure it's something studios will be watching carefully.

  11. Sony has released a third poster for the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home movie which opens in theaters on December 17. This one features Spider-Man, MJ, Doctor Strange, Electro, Green Goblin and Doc Ock. For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero's identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.

  12. Listings for the upcoming Thor: Love And Thunder Marvel Legends wave have surfaced online via Preternia. While these have not been confirmed by Hasbro as of yet and should be considered RUMOR until they do, I have seen these listings before: Necro - 5010993964352 Cracked - 5010993964369 Pew Pew - 5010993964338 Visor - 5010993964345 Helm - 5010993964383 Biceps - 5010993964390 Sabaton - 5010993964376 Obviously these listings are using code names, so by themselves they don't really tell us much. I think we all knew a Thor wave would be coming. The wave will have 7 figures in it and a Build-A-Figure. I don't know if this will be a solid movie wave or a mix with comic based ones. I can tell you that at least three of the regular figures in the wave will be movie based. If you have followed the Love And Thunder movie rumors for what characters will be appearing in that movie then you can probably guess which ones they will be. There could be more movie figures, but I have not seen the names of all the actual figures in the wave yet nor do I know what the Build-A-Figure will be. The wave was originally slated to be released in April 2022, but with the movie getting pushed to a July 8, 2022 release, I don't know if that will delay the release of the figures any or not. Hasbro has previously stated that they were able to adjust the release of movie waves with the latest movie release dates so the gap between the two wouldn't be that large like we saw with Black Widow and Shang-Chi. The next movie wave to go up for pre-order should be the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness wave which I have previously told you should have comic versions of D'Spayre and Sleepwalker. That wave we will likely see officially revealed next month.
  13. Shown below are the new Hawkeye Disney+ Series Kate Bishop with Buddy and Hawkeye POP! Vinyl figures from Funko. You can pre-order these now from our sponsor Entertainment Earth.
