Mondo Celebrates the Spider-Verse Tomorrow

Mondo:

Tomorrow we have an amazing collection celebrating the world’s favorite web-head and the extended “Spider-Verse!” All of the product below will be available on Thursday (12/13) at a random time via mondotees.com!

Two posters – one for Miles Morales, one for the Spidergeddon event, three really cool record slip mats, and perhaps most importantly: a Spider-Ham pin.

Of note, these are not related to the Into the Spider-Verse movie…but I think I’ve seen Bottleneck Gallery teasing something there

The Full Cast of STAR WARS: THE MANDALORIAN Revealed

StarWars.com:

Lucasfilm is pleased to announce the cast of the first-ever Star Wars live-action series — The Mandalorian.

Pedro Pascal (Narcos) has been cast in the title role as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy. He is joined by Gina Carano (Deadpool), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), and Nick Nolte (Affliction).

Absolutely rules. Werner Herzog is going to be a deliriously great addition to the Star Wars mythos.

Zdarsky and Bagley to Team Up on SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY

AIPT:

In 1962, the world watched as teenager Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider…allowing him to become the Amazing Spider-Man! It’s been fifty-seven years since the AMAZING FANTASY #15, the story that brought everyone’s favorite wall-crawler into the Marvel Universe and jumpstarted some of the most adventurous super hero stories ever — but what if Spider-Man had aged at the same rate as our world?

Join acclaimed writer Chip Zdarsky (Peter Parker Spectacular Spider-Man, Marvel 2-In-One) and superstar Spider-Man artist Mark Bagley (Amazing Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man) for SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY – a tale encompassing the entire history of Spider-Man from beginning to end, set against the key events of each decade! As the series kicks off in March, the year is 1966, and Peter Parker must determine where his power and responsibility truly lies as the nation becomes embroiled in the Vietnam War.

This sounds really cool.

Based on Zdarsky’s run on Peter Parker: Spectacular Spider-Man, Bagley being arguably the Spider-Man artist, and the prestige format of the series, I expect something truly special.

Pixar’s Next Original Feature, ONWARD, Set for March 2020

No idea on the plot or anything, but that’s a great cast!

EDIT: Hey! Thanks to ComingSoon, here’s a vague log line:

Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney•Pixar’s Onward introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.

ULTRAMAN is Getting An American Reboot

The Hollywood Reporter:

The Japanese superhero Ultraman is getting the reboot treatment outside its country of origin.

U.S. transmedia producer Starlight Runner Entertainment has been tapped by Tokyo-based Tsuburaya Productions to build out the Ultraman mythology for the digital age outside of Japan, to include a possible live action streaming TV series. The original live action Ultra Q and Ultraman series that launched in 1966 featured a high-tech police force and their silver superhero Ultraman battling to save the Earth from invading aliens and giant monsters.

Not sure if this will turn out OK…
