Hot Toys' Sixth-Scale Nick Fury Is One Bad Mother Figure

Given he’s appeared in almost as many films as Gene Hackman has, it was only a matter of time before Hot Toys’ talented artists would give us a figure based on one of Samuel L. Jackson’s characters.

Fantastic Four is The Most Self-Loathing Superhero Movie I’ve Ever Seen

Superhero movies have tried hard to leave behind some of their Silver Age comic-book trappings in the past decade. We’ve seen darker, grimmer versions of Superman and other heroes—but the new Fantastic Four reboot goes beyond darkness, into actual self-loathing.

A Lego Version of the Ant-Man Trailer Is Better Than the Original

A movie about a superhero that shrinks to the size of an ant had all the potential to be corny and awful. But the original trailer for Ant-Man succeeded in convincing everyone that the film would be great, and now there’s a Lego version that’s even more entertaining than the original. » 7/26/15 10:01am 7/26/15 10:01am

Gwyneth Paltrow's Lifelike Pepper Potts Figure Is Silently Judging You

As Hot Toys slowly works its way through the Iron Man universe, it was inevitable that after producing action figures for almost every last armored suit Tony Stark has built, it would eventually get around to turning characters like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts into sixth-scale collectibles. » 7/22/15 7:45pm 7/22/15 7:45pm

Marvel’s latest superhero movie, Ant-Man, is very well made. It has some good action and a few really clever bits. There are some funny parts, along with some not-that-funny parts. This movie pretty much gets the job done. But it’s not particularly memorable, or especially amazing. » 7/17/15 12:10pm 7/17/15 12:10pm

Spider-Man Is The One Hero Who Can Tie All The Marvel Movies Together

We finally have our new, Marvel-Cinematic-Universe-approved Spider-Man.
