Hot Toys unveils Life-Sized "Nano Gauntlet" from Avengers: Endgame

In what certainly is a new piece of hardware for Stark Industries that determines the fate of the universe thanks to the power of the Infinity Stones it wields, Hot Toys and Marvel have unveiled in their Facebook page the "Nano Gauntlet", along with some brand new upcoming collectibles based on Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Endgame" - the EPIC and EMOTIONAL conclusion to "The Infinity Saga" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the 22nd film released in the franchise.

As the name suggests, the Nano Gauntlet is the creation of Tony Stark, Professor Hulk, and Rocket Raccoon to house their newly acquired Infinity Stones from the Time Heist they pulled through the events of the film. Made with the same nanotech that powers Tony Stark's new set of Iron Man armors, this is the replacement to the Infinity Gauntlet Thanos once used to decimate half the universe with a Snap... And the heroes seek to undo the damage with their own attempt to bring back the fallen and lost from five years ago. This Life-Sized replica looks absolutely stunning, and will no doubt go along with any collector's arsenal and display of figures and replicas. Check the Hot Toys Facebook page for more pictures and info!

Avengers: Endgame is now playing in theaters worldwide.

In what looks like a timely tease following the release of the brand new trailer for the last Marvel Studios film of Phase 3 and 2019, Sony and Marvel have released via The Ellen Show the very first clip to "Spider-Man: Far From Home" - the new Spider-Man film sequel that sees Tom Holland back as Peter Parker/ Spider-Man. Fresh from the fallout from "Avengers: Endgame" and the impact the ending has had personally on our friendly neighborhood wallcrawler, Peter is recruited by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to undertake a new mission while in Europe - and meets a new mysterious ally from another reality named Quentin Beck, aka Mysterio (played by Jake Gyllenhaal).

Avengers: Endgame: The Russo Brothers reveal "original title"; SiriusXM spoiler-filled interview details movie events

Almost two weeks have passed since the EPIC and EMOTIONAL finale of Marvel Studios' "Infinity Saga" hit with "Avengers: Endgame" - the 22nd film in the long running Marvel Cinematic Universe that picks up where 2018's "Avengers: Infinity War" left off and sees the surviving heroes make a stand to do "Whatever It Takes" to undo the decimation Thanos caused with the power of the Infinity Stones.

According to a report by Superherohype, during an interview with the HappySadConfused podcast, The Russo Brothers revealed that the "original title" going for Endgame turned out to be "Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet" - which is the title of the 1991 Marvel Comics miniseries "The Infinity Gauntlet" - the story that inspired most of Infinity War and Endgame. Obviously it was one of those things to throw off suspicion that one of Doctor Strange's last words "We're in the Endgame now" was a hint at the title.

Then there is this AWESOME Spoiler-Filled Endgame interview with the director brothers by SiriusXM - which you have to watch.

The very first Spider-Man was released 17 years ago today

While the Marvel Cinematic Universe is finally on its Endgame with the release and global domination of "Avengers: Endgame" on the box office, let's remember that before the Marvel Cinematic Universe began and Iron Man was introduced, there were a couple of Marvel Movies that helped pave the way for Marvel Studios to take on the grand ambitious journey - and one of these movies was the very first Spider-Man movie starring Tobey Maguire and directed by Sam Raimi!

Spider-Man Official Trailer (2002)

Yes before Andrew Garfield's turn in "The Amazing Spider-Man" films and of course Tom Holland as the current webslinger in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there was Tobey's Spidey - still a fan favorite and one who starred in the most standalone films alongside co-stars Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson and James Franco as Harry Osborn. Also the big baddie in the Green Goblin is played by the talented Willem Dafoe, and J. Jonah Jameson by J.K. Simmons!

Without these films, we wouldn't be getting the superhero movies we have today, and we have to pay our respects to our friendly neighborhood wallcrawler's first solo adventure! Happy 17 years, Spider-Man!

"I Am Iron Man."

Through those words and the cinematic origin story told by Marvel Studios, a former B-Lister Marvel Comics superhero and founding member of the Avengers turned into a global blockbuster sensation in 2008. A gamble to usher in a cinematic universe with a returning and sober Robert Downey Jr. paid off, as Tony Stark and the Marvel Cinematic Universe was born and the very first "Iron Man" film directed by Jon Favreau was released on this day 11 years ago!
