Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Last week’s biggest news, and frankly the biggest news of 2015 so far, was that Spider-Man is coming back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ll see him in at least one Marvel movie (probably Captain America: Civil War) before a 2017 Sony reboot that ties in to the MCU. All week fans were debating what this meant for superhero movies, who should play the role, and what it might look like.
That last question has now kind of been answered thanks to ScreenCrush. They took footage from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and carefully edited it with The Avengers. The result is a glimpse of what The Avengers might have looked like if Spider-Man was involved. Watch the Spider-Man Avengers below. Read More »
They say opposites attract, and in art, the idea of mixing “cute” and “violent” helps prove the saying. 100% Soft, a California based artist, has a very distinct, very “cute” style where all the characters are small, sweet and cherubic. He’s had many pieces in lots of different shows but this week, he’s having his first solo show and the work is absolutely incredible.
The show is called Mass Hysteria and it’s a collection of art featuring massive gatherings and action scenes from your favorite movies, TV and music. It opens at 7 p.m. February 6 at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles.
Some examples of this “Mass Hysteria” is the end of The Avengers, the Crazy 88 in Kill Bill, the hallway in Oldboy, the finale of Raiders of the Lost Ark and many other mass gatherings in pop culture, all viewed through that cute little filter. The results are just beautiful and gory and awesome. In a phrase: mind-blowing. Check out a small sample of the 30 + images in the Mass Hysteria art show below. Read More »

One of the many reasons people continue to show up in droves to Marvel movies is they want to see what happens next. With each subsequent film, short or TV show, one cohesive story continues to unfold. It’s serial moviemaking.
That means, hypothetically, if you wanted to watch the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as one movie, you could. They were conceived as a single story all linking together, so why not edit them into one huge movie? You can and that’s exactly what some Marvel fans have done. However, while that’s cool on its own, they’ve gone one step further. They’ve created a video letting people know how to make their own edit of Phase One in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as one, chronological movie. Check out the how to Marvel Phase One Timeline video below. Read More »
