– Not that the look of it is all that surprising, but Ryan Reynolds took to social media on Friday to show off the official costume for the upcoming Deadpool film. Kudos to Reynolds for putting together a costume reveal that feels true to the character. The logo and official synopsis also got released over the weekend.
– For over a year now, we’ve been hearing about the upcoming spin-off to The Walking Dead, but we haven’t known what it is going to be called. Well, here it is, folks: Fear the Walking Dead. Well, that’s a disappointment.
– We really have no idea what Marvel will look like post-“Secret Wars,” but Axel Alonso revealed one such piece of information: the X-books will feature something of a new shared universe, set off by a ‘catastrophic event’ and featuring an entirely new team. These could all just be buzz words, but I have to say that the idea sounds like it could be quite fun.
– After the shocking latest issue of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” IDW has decided to lock up Kevin Eastman to an exclusive deal. Congrats, Kevin!
– Two long awaited Wonder Woman books now have release dates: Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette’s “Wonder Woman: Earth One” will drop November 10, while September 8 will see the release of Jill Thompson’s “Wonder Woman: The Very Selfish Princess.”
– IDW used ECCC to announce a ton of books, such as “Godzill in Hell,” “Ghostbusters: Get Real,” “The Shrinking Man,” and more. Check out the full spate here.
– Not to be outdone, Dark Horse also announced ten new books due out this summer – check them out here.
– Valiant is launching a new online video series that deals with the early days of their heroes; “Valiant Origins” starts with Bloodshot.
– Howard Stark is getting his original actor back: John Slattery is reprising the role, officially, in Ant-Man.
– And, finally, in the category of “I didn’t know that such a market existed,” Marvel and Five Four are launching a new men’s fashion line.
