Disney has released two new posters for Big Hero 6, the film based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name. It’s Disney’s first animated Marvel adaptation. Both posters show the big robot Baymax, and really highlight his nature as a cute and probably very powerful robot. He looks a bit like the offspring of Wall-E‘s Eve and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man — at least when he’s out of his armor. When he’s armored up, Baymax looks more like a super-intimidating samurai. See the two new Big Hero 6 posters below. Read More »

2014 has already seen the premieres of two Marvel adaptations, with a third on the way this weekend and a fourth arriving later this summer. Today, we have a new look at yet another one, which premieres this fall. But this one’s a little different from all the others.
Big Hero 6 isn’t a live-action CG spectacle, but an animated movie — the first animated Marvel feature film from Disney, in fact. Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, it centers on a young robotics prodigy who builds his own superhero team to try and save his futuristic hometown of San Fransokyo. The first Big Hero 6 trailer has finally arrived, and you can see it after the jump.

You guys, Disney Animation is making a Marvel movie. It’s something fans have been dreaming about for decades and Thursday May 22, we finally get our first full glimpse. It’s called Big Hero 6 and no, it’s not as big as Spider-Man, Captain America or Wolverine, but it has that exact same sense of wonder, just with a more grounded family center.
Loosely based on the comic of the same name (and not in anyway connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe by the way), Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams. It stars a young boy named Hiro and his puffy, friendly robot named Baymax. Together, the pair recruit a series of regular people to become superheroes and save the world. Check out some photos here.
You’ll see more of that Thursday when the first Big Hero 6 trailer is released. But, for now, check out the Big Hero 6 poster and a trailer tease. The film opens November 7. Read More »

The first big Marvel movie from Disney Animation centers on a young robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada who forms his own superhero team to save his hometown of San Fransokyo.
One of the key members of that team is Baymax, a robot who’s also Hiro’s BFF and protector. The new Big Hero 6 images show how Hiro turns Baymax from a big, soft blob into a “meched-out super robot.” Check ‘em out after the jump.
