News : FORTINE THEMED MARVEL COMIC COMING SOON

Marvel and Epic Games are teaming up once more, but instead of Marvel characters coming to Fortnite, Fortnite is again venturing into comics. The pair announced this week the release of Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War, a new mini-series which is scheduled to release at some point in June. As we’ve seen from past comic collaborations, those who pick up the five issues planned for the series will be ab le to score some in-game Fortnite items as well.

The cover for the comic seen in part below with the full version in the linked post shows several familiar characters. Marvel said Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man and Shuri are all confirmed to make appearances in the series which centers around a fragment of the Zero Point artifact in the Fortnite lore that’s been launched into the Marvel universe and must now be recovered. As expected, we’ll see plenty of Fortnite characters make their own appearances in the comic.

Marvel writer Christos Gage will be working alongside Donald Mustard, the chief creative officer of Epic Games, on the mini-series with Sergio Davíla announced as the artist. It’ll be penciled by Sergio Davila with the cover by Leinil Francis Yu, according to Marvel’s announcement.

“At its heart, the series is an adventure story, with characters from both universes coming together to go on a treasure hunt into the deepest, darkest depths of the Marvel Universe,” said Marvel Comics editor Alanna Smith on the collaboration. “Donald Mustard and Christos Gage have such a deep love for both Fortnite and Marvel, and Sergio Davíla is turning in some absolutely unreal pages. Having the amazing Leinil Francis Yu on main covers and a killer lineup of Marvel artists on variants has been a real gift as well. This is going to be the ultimate team-up, where the best of both Fortnite and Marvel are represented.”

To get the Fortnite cosmetic mentioned in the announcement, you’ll have to be a Marvel Unlimited subscriber and will have to read through all five issues as they’re released. Those issues will be available through the subscription service once the final print issue is out. Alternatively, you can simply purchase the first printings of the book when it hits shelves in physical locations to get the cosmetic items for free. We don’t yet know what those cosmetics look like, but they’ll be available in the Item Shop at some point as well for those who just want to buy them that way.

Prior to this comic’s announcement, Marvel and Epic Games teamed up previously with the release of Fortnite x Marvel – Nexus War: Thor. DC Comics has also worked with Epic Games with the release of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point, a series darker than many Fortnite players probably expected and one that perfectly set up a sequel.

News : ANT-MAN 3 IN CINEMAS 2023

Heading into Phase 5 of the MCU, one of the most important films of Marvel Studios’ Multiversal narrative is Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. True to its name, this Ant-Man threequel is confirmed to not only revisit the Quantum Realm but also be the first MCU film to feature Kang the Conqueror. Even though Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania isn’t set to release until February 17, 2023, Marvel Studios released a Quantumania trailer exclusively to D23 Expo attendees, confirming just who from the MCU has a part in this upcoming threequel.

In the D23 trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, audiences get an idea of Scott Lang’s post-Endgame life, as well as what the now-teenage Cassie Lang was up to during the Blip. Apparently, Cassie developed an interest in the Quantum Realm during those five years; and now, she’s developed a machine that acts as a sort of two-way radio with the Quantum Realm. In fact, she’s learned how to send a signal to the realm. Janet’s warning to Cassie turns out to be too little, too late as the Lang and van Dyne family end up in the Quantum Realm before coming face to face with the MCU’s next big bad, Kang the Conqueror.

While the Ant-Man 3 trailer begins by showing more of what fans have come to expect from the franchise, that all changes once the cast ends up in the Quantum Realm. The tone grows progressively darker; and by the time Scott meets Kang, it’s clear that this threequel provides the stakes prior Ant-Man films have never had. If there’s one complaint to be had with the footage, it’s Cassie’s creation of the device that can contact the Quantum Realm.

Until now, young Cassie never showed much interest in science. While it’s true that she’s a teenager now, her being the reason why they all end up in the Quantum Realm just seems convenient.

Hopefully, that part of the plot will be better executed in the film; but if not, Ant-Man 3 still has a ton to offer and looks to be integral to the MCU moving forward. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania debuts in theaters on February 17, 2023.

News : JAMIE LEE CURTIS TO EXIT HALLOWEEN FRANCHISE

Jamie Lee Curtis is getting ready to take her final turn as iconic final girl Laurie Strode. Curtis, who has played Laurie for almost 50 years since John Carpenter’s 1978 “Halloween,” leads upcoming Universal Pictures’ “Halloween Ends,” co-written and directed by David Gordon Green. The final installment in the re-quel trilogy, “Halloween Ends” is set years after the events of Green’s “Halloween” in 2018 and 2021’s extra bloody “Halloween Kills,” following the aftermath of the death of Laurie’s daughter, played by Judy Greer.

“Halloween Ends” premieres in theaters and on Peacock October 14. While “Kills” saw a shocking death and touched on political conversations like #MeToo, police distrust, and mob mentalities, “Ends” marks a different kind of death: Curtis’ last turn as Strode. Director Green co-wrote the script with Paul Brad Logan, Chris Bernier, and Danny McBride. Green formerly hinted that “Halloween Ends” will be “a much more intimate movie” than his previous installments, 2018’s “Halloween” and 2021’s “Halloween Kills.”

“There’s not a lot of games in it, there’s not a lot of wittiness and retro joy,” Green said. “It’s kind of a coming-of-age film, and it’s a very different tone. And that’s what excited me about it, is to have the three chapters that I’ve been involved in be very different from each other. They are all there to honor Carpenter, but aren’t necessary just emulating him.” Kyle Richards, Andi Matichak, and James Jude Courtney, who plays serial killer Michael Myers, will reprise their respective roles for the franchise ender.

Lead star Curtis called the film “deeply emotional and cathartic,” especially with parting ways with her character Laurie. “I mean, when you call her a final girl — I never really understood how important that name was until I made this last movie. And now I really understand it. And I think you’ll be very happy,” Curtis told Salon about the franchise ender.

“Halloween Ends” wrapped filming in February 2022, with Curtis calling the final day of production “bittersweet” in an Instagram post. “I’ve made great friends and have collaborated with wonderful artists on these three movies and today my part in the film has been completed and with it the END for me of this trilogy,” Curtis continued. “I love this crew and cast and I will miss you all. We can’t wait for the fans to see the movie.” Curtis exits Haddonfield forever in the 13th entry in the “Halloween” franchise. “It’s all because of the fans who have always supported me and more importantly, Laurie,” Curtis continued, before thanking production companies Blumhouse, Trancas, Miramax, Rough House Pictures, and Universal Pictures.
