Marvel-ous!

Check out the first photos of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel! Reports are saying the costume’s color palate is supposedly inspired by the original Mar-Vell Kree costume. No doubt Carol Danvers will end up in her better know red, gold and blue before it’s all over. What do you think?

Nintendo Drops Cool Cardboard Add-ons

Last night, Nintendo showed one of the most innovative, fun, creative, and cost-effective toys ever made for video games. The Nintendo Labo is a series of Do-It-Yourself cardboard creations that can be used with the Nintendo Switch for a whole new experience, and is set to release April 20, 2018. Some of these cool, interactive “Toy-Cons” include a 13 key piano

A fishing rod

A motorbike

A house

And whatever this thing is

The starting Variety Kit includes “two Toy-Con RC cars, a Toy-Con fishing rod, a Toy-Con house, a Toy-Con motorbike, and a Toy-Con piano.” And will be priced at about $70.

The Robot Kit is an entirely different beast. It includes parts that you can use to “build an interactive robot suit with a visor, backpack, and straps for your hands and feet,which you can then wear to assume control of a giant in-game robot.”

The Robot Kit is set to be a little more expensive than the Variety Kit, at $80.

Each Kit comes with game cartridges for the Nintendo Switch.

Is this the future of Nintendo? Is this the future of gaming? Inexpensive-to-manufacture add-ons. Will you buy these Toy-Con Kits when they come out? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below and on all of our social media.

Bendis’ Marvelous Move To DC

It was reported today the flagship writer for Marvel Comics Brian Michael Bendis has signed to DC Comics. This is a huge acquisition for DC Comics and president/CCO Geoff Johns. Bendis is known for writing beloved storylines for Ultimate Spiderman, Daredevil, X-Men(including the well known House of M story), Secret War, New Avengers, Secret Invasion, Old Man Logan, The Age of Ultron series, and many more.

This brings an extra level of excitement for DC fans, as we await his assigned comic series, while Marvel fans are anxious for someone to fill the huge hole in the roster left by Bendis.
