Spider-Man Unlimited

by Ryan Rigley

These past few months have been pretty superior for Spider-Man. For those of you who aren't up speed, writer Dan Slott has placed the mind of Doctor Otto Octavius—a.k.a. Doctor Octopus—into Peter Parker's body within the pages of Marvel's "Superior Spider-Man.". Now, as if that weren't exciting enough, Slott will be re-introducing a fan-favorite futuristic character: Miguel O'Hara, a.k.a. Spider-Man 2099.

Making his big comeback in issue #17 of "Superior Spider-Man," Miguel O'Hara had another brush with fame following "Spider-Man 2099's" cancellation way back in 1996. Following the end of Fox's successful—and long-running—"Spider-Man" cartoon, they looked to 2099 for inspiration.

Disney's D23 Expo showed a lot of love for Captain America over the weekend. In addition to the debut of Disney's costumed Captain America, the real Cap—Chris Evans—was on-hand to help show off some new footage from next spring's Marvel movie, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."

The actor spoke with Collider about his relationships in the new film, considering that it's the first film fully devoted to the time-displaced Steve Rogers. Evans revealed that the most prominent relationship in the film is between Captain America and his Avengers teammate, the Black Widow.

"The whole movie is myself and Black Widow, teaming up," Evans said about his on-screen partnership with the returning Scarlett Johansson. "They are a very unlikely duo. It's kind of an odd couple. We've both been working for someone else for a very long time. She is very morally flexible, Cap's a boy scout."

It's taken a while, but it looks like Marvel properties are finally starting to integrate in with Disney's, as was revealed today at the company's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. This integration will first manifest itself as Disney revamps its cruise line, wherein a new interactive experience—Avengers Academy—will now play a prominent role in the endeavor.

The Avengers Academy area will be modeled after the interior of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier seen in "Marvel's the Avengers, complete with the sleek styling and logo'd out tables seen in the film. There, kids will get to "train" to be the next generation of heroes, and get to see and/or use props like Iron Man's armor, Thor's hammer, and Captain America's shield. There are more details, including a look at the Academy itself, in this quick video.

When "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer held a question and answer session at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, he brought the X-Film footage that was screened at San Diego Comic-Con International with him. Now, with the internet being the internet, a low-quality version of that footage has leaked. You can check it out—and if not the video, then at least the description—after the jump.

Of course, I will throw up a spoiler warning for those of you not wanting to know what happens... in the upcoming trailer. Hey, I know everyone's definition of a spoiler is different, so, jump at your own risk!

Coulson

by Brett White

Few characters have taken on a life of their own quite in the same way that Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson has—and even fewer have received as meaningful send-offs as the one the everyman received during last summer's "Marvel's the Avengers." But that wasn't the end of Coulson's story—even if Clark Gregg believed it to be for a few months!

The character will return to the land of the living this fall in ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," where Gregg will team-up with a number of new agents—including those played by Ming-Na Wen and Brett Dalton. MTV News' Josh Horowitz got to interview all three actors during San Diego Comic-Con, where Gregg got to go into detail about how he said goodbye to his character.

MTV News' Josh Horowitz got a chance to talk to "Kick-Ass 2" stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse back at San Diego Comic-Con, where the conversation naturally turned towards another much buzzed about superhero that Taylor-Johnson is rumored to be up for: Quicksilver in "Avengers: Age of Ultron."

And while the actor couldn't really divulge any new information about his involvement—or lack thereof—in the film, he did reveal that his wife, director Sam Taylor-Wood, made a big Quicksilver-themed purchase.

"In fact my wife just went out and she bought the first ever cover—it's like a really old, vintage [comic]. It's the first time where Quicksilver's ever been on the front cover." Aaron, dude, did she buy you "X-Men" #4 from 1964? Did she drop over $3000 on a gift featuring a character you may not even be playing? Wow, that's love, right?

You can see the entire interview with Taylor-Johnson and Mintz-Plasse below!

If you wanted to see that bloody hand-removing Hit-Girl scene from yesterday's Red Band featurette in full context, consider your wish granted. This new clip from "Kick-Ass 2" runs Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) through an undercover mission gone horribly wrong, with Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) coming to the rescue. The clip comes complete with all the blood splatter and rough language you've come to expect.

The fight scene is well choreographed and directed, which means that director Jeff Wadlow could be primed and ready for an even bigger comic book movie ("X-Force" anyone?). Plug in your headphones, make sure no one's looking, and check out the NSFW clip below!

"Kick-Ass 2" hits theaters on August 16th.

Michonne became an instantly iconic character after debuting on the cover of "Walking Dead" #19, with her katana and zombie accompaniment setting her apart from everyone else in Rick's crew. So when the character slashed her way onto the small screen in AMC's "The Walking Dead," fans everywhere wondered how they would bring the character's armless and leashed undead companions to—for lack of a better word—life.

In a featurette included on the series' season 3 DVD and Blu-ray box set—due out on August 27th—executive producer Gale Anne Hurd and executive producer/special effects supervisor Greg Nicotero reveal just how they transformed actors Theshay West and Moses J. Moseley into Danai Gurira's sidekicks. Hint: it involves a few prosthetics, a lot of fake blood, and some stylish blue sleeves. Check out the whole video below!

Bucky

by Brett White

Casual Captain America fans might have been surprised when Sebastian Stan appeared onstage during Marvel's Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, what with his character—Bucky—having famously died in "Captain America: The First Avenger." But, and Stan's public appearance and onset photos proves it, Bucky's back in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"! But how did the character survive that epic fall down a mountainside into an icy river? The clues, Stan told Empire, are in the first film.

"There were actually some clues in the first movie that this was going to happen, believe it or not," said Stan. "I didn't even know about that... There are some clues in some of the scenes, actually in some of the set pieces that the guys put in there that I didn't even know about, particularly in that rescue scene. If you freeze [frame it], you go, 'Oh!' But it's so subtle, I mean, that's one of the great things about it. There's a reason he survives that fall."
