There’s an all new number one Black Widow coming your way in January, and Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek, for your enjoyment.
It’s been too long since we’ve seen Francesco Francavilla on the pages of Major Spoilers. We’re fixing that today with his cover to Marvel: Captain America and Black Widow, a five issue mini-series written by Cullen Bunn.
Or – “I Really Dislike The Term ‘Starktech.’ “
For a while, while Bendis was writing Avengers (or perhaps Dark Avengers), the storyline included technology created by Tony Stark, Victor Von Doom and (I believe) Justin Hammer, colloquially known as “Starktech,” “Doomtech,” and “Hammertech.” You’d think that in a world where EVERYONE is a multi-disciplinary sooper-geeeenius, that they’d have some more creative names. What does this have to do with our Major Spoilers review of Black Widow’s story bridging her two movie experiences? I don’t know. But we’re OFF!
Hot Toys is the Hong Kong based company that produces some of the best looking action figures around. You’ve seen what they can do with Captain America, and Stallone from The Expendables, and now the company is teasing its line of 1/6th scale action figures based on The Avengers. Hot Toys posted this teaser image for an upcoming Black Widow figure, that I think will be a best seller. I think you can figure out why.
Or – “I Apologize, But I Must Refuse To Call Her ‘Scar Jo’ On Principle…”
I arrived at work last week to find that Deon, the owner of Gate Keep Comics and Hobbies, had purchased another longbox of comics on Saturday buying day. But instead of the usual quarter-bin fare, he had somewhere procured a complete run of Amazing Spider-Man from #39 all the way through #250. I’ve spent a lot of time grading and bagging these books, and among the surprises in the box was this issue, which may be of interest to fans of the upcoming Avengers movie. I had often wondered how the Black Widow went from frumpy love interest to butt-kicking leather clad dynamo, but I had NO idea that it took place in Spider-Man’s book!
The international trailer for The Avengers has appeared online, and it feature a lot of Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow.
Gene Gonzales doesn’t like to sit idle. Today’s sketch of Black Widow was done during his lunch break.
Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Fear Itself: Black Widow #1 by Cullen Bunn and Peter Nguyen.
Marvel released another teaser image, and information about yet another tie-in issue to the Fear Itself event. This time Black Widow is getting in on the act.
We’ve featured Patrick Boivin many a time at Major Spoilers, his Iron Man vs. Bruce Lee bit was priceless, and today he brings more awesome as he features Black Widow taking on all comers.
Here’s Art Appreciation Moment of the Day regular Gene Gonzales offering up his take on the Black Widow.
