Wonder Woman costume details

Just as eager as the world is to see what our precious warrior Wonder Woman will be rocking in the Man of Steel sequel? The details give us some insight on what it will resemble!

"It's a thrilling and slightly scary prospect, of course," Wilkinson says. "It's so important to get her right. She really deserves to be presented on screen in her full glory."
Wilkinson goes on to say that he's looking at "the history of how the character's been presented on the big screen and the small screen and in comic books and graphic novels; we process it all, and then we kind of put that aside and work out what is right for our film, for the cinematic universe... And we try and create a Wonder Woman that's relevant for today's audiences."
Have any theroeis? Thinking her new 52 outfit is the inspiration? Or a modern upgrade her way comes?

X-Men Days of Future Past Mobile Game Announced

Marvel has announced along with Glitchsoft to bring the classic X-men storylines to our phones... if it's a card or puzzle game it's safe to say we riot? The kind of game is still a mystery but we do know some core details.

VP of Games Production at Marvel TQ Jefferson said of the project, "GlitchSoft came to us with a pedigree of rock-solid game development, strong production values, and a passion for the Uncanny X-Men franchise that was impossible to ignore."

Days of Future past is a story line set in a dystopian future where mutants are interned in camps due to anti-mutant hysteria among the general population and takes place in Earth-811 reality in the Marvel Multiverse.
Glitchsoft's site for the game promises "Uncanny X-Men enthusiasts will be able to experience Marvel’s 1981 landmark Days of Future Past comic book story arc in an immersive and story-driven game."
Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past will be available for iOS and Android devices in May 2014 in conjunction with the Days of Future Past film.

Rocket Raccoon Solo Comic

Our favorite Marvel cuddly bad ass (Not Squirrel Girl) is going to be shining in his own comic book series this coming July, one month before the summer blockbuster hits theatres.

 "I think it's going to have a connection to that nostalgic feeling for 'Looney Tunes,' that old animated flavor where everything wasn't squeaky clean, you know? Daffy Duck would get his bill blasted off with double barrel shotguns... That's what I grew up watching, and being able to play around with that in this hyper-superhero intergalactic universe will be a lot of fun."

As the issue #1 cover suggests, Rocket's buddy and awesome talking tree friend / muscle Groot will also play a role in the book. In fact, at one point the series was billed as "Rocket Raccoon and Groot." "I felt that it would be a disservice to that character if we naturally focused on Rocket all the time, and had [Groot] as a side thing, but with his name in the title," said Young. "But you can't have one without the other, so he's not going anywhere. He's not going to be on every page, but he's definitely going to play big roles in all the stories I have in mind. He's definitely going to be his buddy throughout all the stories."
Can't wait for this book, i'm a huge fan of the series as a whole but to give Groot and Rocket a story of there own is amazing and should be hilarious.
