Get your hands on these damn dirty Apes! Beginning an all-new series that takes place before the original 1968 Planet of the Apes movie in the continuity of the first five films! Ape society has reached a new golden age. But there are ripples of dissent in both the ape and human ranks. Tensions will rise and soon all will be caught in chaos! And amidst all this uncertainty, what is the fate of…The Lawgiver? Written by award-winning novelist Daryl Gregory!
PHILADELPHIA – A new look and a new suit are in store for Ultimate Spider-Man, but the fate of Peter Parker — the awkward teenager who catches thieves like flies — is still a mystery.
Marvel Comics said Monday that Parker is taking off the Spidey costume for good as part of its “Death of Spider-Man” story in its Ultimate Comics imprint, but it has offered scant clues as to what ultimate fate may befall the high schooler who was bitten by a radioactive spider.
One thing is for certain: The iconic red-and-blue spider suit is history, replaced by a sleek, streamlined black outfit with a deep red spider on the chest and cobwebs on the shoulders and head.
Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso said that while Parker’s fate is still uncertain — “Let’s just say that Peter acts like the hero he is, and pays a price for it,” he said — there will be someone new slinging webs across Manhattan this summer after the current story arc written by Brian Michael Bendis with Mark Millar wraps up in “Ultimate Spider-Man” No. 160.
As for who that person may be, Alonso won’t say.
“We’re confident that once readers get to know the person who wears the new Spider-Man, they are going to fall in love,” he told The Associated Press. “This is a whole new voyage of self-discovery for the 21st century.”
Spider-Man fans need not worry because the Ultimate imprint is separate from Marvel’s bigger universe and whatever fate befalls Parker won’t count in the pages of the other series, including “Amazing Spider-Man.”
Hopefully these striking long-exposure shots from one of SILENT HILL: REVELATION’s sets will have as much pop on screen.
SlashFilm brought attention to the images, which come from photographer Sara Collaton, shot late one evening in an amusement park/carnival set that will apparently see a good deal of screen time in the upcoming sequel. Achieved with long exposure, Collaton really captured some gorgeous and ultimately spooky images. Note: While there are no spoilers, the set could be something really stunning and atmospheric in the film, so if you’d like not to be privy, be warned.
Currently shooting in Toronto, SILENT HILL: REVELATION’s synopsis reads, “For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever.” The film stars Malcolm McDowell, Carrie-Anne Moss, Adelaide Clemens, Kit Harington and original SILENT HILL returnees Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean and Deborah Kara Unger.
Personally I think it makes Ryan Reynolds head look way to big. But that’s just me.
