My word, Figma do love their Iron Man variants, don't they? Next up is the turn of the blinged up Mk XXI 'Midas' suit, the sort of ostentatious ridiculous you can only expect from someone like Tony Stark. But ostentatiousness aside, it makes for a pretty figure!
Or at least, five different movies are being made, based on Liu's work. China Film Group Corp. is making three movies based on Liu's books: The Wandering Earth, The Era of the Supernova and Micro Era. Add to that two other Liu Cixin films: The Rural Teacher and a Three-Body Problem movie trilogy.

The next Marvel one-shot, included on the DVD/Blu-ray release of Thor: The Dark World, is of course about Trevor Slattery, the poor actor who pretended to be the diabolical terrorist called the Mandarin.
