Everybody! Get ready — Marvel has announced their movie lineup for the next six years. And it looks positively awesome. Although we can’t help but mention the fact that a little over a week ago, DC made a similar announcement, making this an amusing sort of comic-book titans catch-up game. Well, hey. We’ve all got to make a living, right? And when keeping up with the Joneses means staying on the toes of a major entertainment franchise… okay, now we digress. We’ll let this gif explain it all:
But anyways, back to what’s important — the Marvel Cinematic Universe announced 15 titles that will be released in the next six years. Whew! These will include Captain America: Civil War (May 2016), Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (May 2017 — new date), Thor: Ragnarok (July 2017), Black Panther (November 2017), Avengers: Infinity War Part I (May 2018), Captain Marvel (July 2018), Inhumans (November 2018) and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 (May 2019).
Would it be irrational to pre-pop the unlimited bags of popcorn we’ll inevitably consume during all of these movies?
(Psst — you can also check out Newsarama’s nifty, chronologically ordered list of all the superhero films coming out from now until 2020 here. Awesome.)
The second wave of 2013 Marvel figures has arrived! Grab ’em all and you can build the Guardians of the Galaxy’s ROCKET RACCOON. Of course, the actual collection is an interesting one too, featuring Scarlet Spider, Black Panther and then two versions of Hawkeye, Wrecker OR Bulldozer and three iterations of Jean Grey. Order one of the variant figures and you get a random!
If you prefer, of course, you can also order them as a complete set, with random variants!

Black Panther is back in development at Marvel Studios.
The company has hired Mark Bailey, who hails from the documentary film world, to pen a take on the character, the king of a resource-rich fictional African country who becomes a super hero. Marvel’s Kevin Feige is producing.
The Black Panther first appeared in the pages of the Fantastic Four comic in 1966 and is considered the first black hero in mainstream comics. A movie version was in development at Columbia in the early 1990s with Wesley Snipes on board to star in an Indiana Jones-style adventure.
Snipes remained attached to Panther even when the property transferred to Artisan Entertainment, best known for making The Blair Witch Project. At the time it had several Marvel films in development.
Marvel reacquired the rights to Panther in 2005 when it absorbed a host of character licenses from Lionsgate, which bought Artisan in 2003.
On a certain level, Bailey is an odd choice to write an a Black Panther movie. The scribe’s credits include stints as a writer or story editor on hard-hitting HBO documentaries such as Pandemic: Facing AIDS and Ghost of Abu Ghraib. His most recent project, being developed by Chockstone Productions, is a feature adaptation of the non-fiction book The Last of the Tribe: The Epic Quest to Save a Lone Man in the Amazon, to which Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) is attached to direct.
But going against the grain has been a long-standing tradition for Marvel when developing its characters (remember the puzzlement by watchful fans when Alvin Sargent, the writer of Ordinary People, was tapped to write a Spider-Man movie?) and Bailey, repped by CAA, brings realism and grittiness to the project.
Shipping in the 4th quarter of 2010, check out the new the new Black Panther statue from Sideshow.
The Wakanda leader T’Challa stands poised to strike on a rock, spear at the ready as his golden eyes glare out at any potential foe. Standing at a whopping 18 inches, the figure features some incredibly detailed sculpting, real fabric details and a wired cape for poseability. More than that, it also boasts a switchable unmasked head and an open hand should the spear prove too imposing!
The statue is the work of Marvel and Sideshow artists and designers Tony Cipriano, Don Rutherford, Anthony Mestas, Tim Hanson, Seth Rinaldi, Mike Allen and The Sideshow Collectibles Design and Development Team. Given the incredible textures on this piece, they’ve really outdone themselves. Even among a line of beautiful pieces, I would say that this Black Panther still stands out.
It’s a great piece for anyone seeking a stunning rendering of a character who is too rarely given his dues.
