Robert Redford is Up for a Role in Captain America: Winter Soldier

Comics

Robert Redford is in negotations to play a high ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in the Captain America sequel. While no names immediately come to mind he could play an established character or a new one much like Clark Gregg’s, Agent Coulsen. Marvel has no problem getting the big name actors attached.

Comics, Left Field

Iron Man Monster Truck

Marvel has its own Monster Trucks now. An Iron Man, Captain America and Spider-man truck have been jumping and crushing at shows this last year and it was announced that they would take part in the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam competing against the likes of Monster Truck legends like Gravedigger and El Diablo. DC actually has their own Batman and Superman trucks so maybe maybe there will a Marvel vs. DC battle on the field of honor.

Check out where these Marvel trucks will be doing their thing in the listings below.

Zen Studios Releases Marvel’s ‘Civil War’ Themed Pinball Table

Comics, Games, Music

Zen Studios has released its newest Marvel themed table for Pinball FX2 today. It’s the best Pinball sim game you could ever hope for and they keep dishing out the high quality tables. This newest one is based on the Civil War storyline that pit hero versus hero against each other over differing opinions and views. Fight for the side you believe in utilizing little metal spheres and your talent of striking them to various locations using skill and occassional randomness.

Zen Studios were nice enough to make the soundtrack for this table available for FREE as well. Head to the bottom of this page to download the tracks for yourself and enjoy the sound of comic book pinball conflict whenever you feel like it.

Brian’s Comic Book Picks for November 21st

Captain America #1

This will be the 7th volume of Captain America. He is one of Marvel’s oldest characters (pun intended) and this new beginning for Cap plays up that fact a bit. It’s Cap’s birthday and he is 90 years old…well kind of. This new Cap book throws the man into a new world, very different from anything he has known before. While he has been a man out of time for a long time he is now a man very much out of his element as well. We see the return of a familiar face to Cap books and with it a new direction for Cap as he is a man on the run in a world where he sticks out a red white and blue sore thumb. Marvel is building a more cohesive universe to run parallel with its films but it seems to be taking some chances at the same time with its familiar characters. It’s a little strange that Marvel is going this route with the character but I’m down for the experiment. Captain America in Dimension Z.

Marvel Phase One Box Set Information

Comics, Movies/TV

Marvel’s Phase One movie collection was set to come out the same time Avengers did back in September. Due to a ridiculous lawsuit regarding the packaging it had to be pushed back. I personally think this new date will help sales a bit but regardless it will finally be coming out on April 2nd of next year. This collection will include: Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America and the Avengers along with multiple bonus discs all on Blu Ray. As an added bonus a number of teaser items will be included for Marvel’s Phase 2 which includes sequels to Iron Man, Thor and Captain America along with The Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers 2. Lots of goodies in a packed collection.
