Entertainment Weekly got a nice teaser. What do you think?

Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott talks to CBR about some recent deaths in the pages of the book. He also talks about the Spider-Verse. The interview kind of goes off the rails towards the end and CBR Executive Producer  Jonah Weiland jokingly says, “This is the worst interview I’ve ever done.”

ultspiderman100 I’m going to interview legendary Spider-Man artist Mark Bagley at the Tulsa Wizard World Comic Con. I’ve got the interview lined up for mark-bagley-fantastic-four-joins-the-wizard-world-comic-con-tour-2Sunday, November 9th. I’ll take message board questions from the Crawlspace fans. Please be short and concise with your questions. Here is the thread where you can ask them. Please get them in a couple days before November 9th so I can print them out and take them on my trip. This will be a video interview and I’ll also cut the audio and make a podcast out of it. Mark is also doing a commission for me of an upside down kiss with Spidey and Mary Jane. I can’t wait to see it.

So what is going on in this picture? 1972CreemStanLeeSpideyMastMarvel_zps53cc4377

BPConceptArtHey Crawlspacers. This is George, signed in at home on Marvel. com and following the special live press event coverage going down at the El Capitan theater in L.A. today.

Dan Slott may have hinted earlier that it is Spider-related. We’ll see!

UPDATE: 2:12 EST – Marvel Studios’ Kevin Fiege takes the stage. Introduces the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which has already debuted this week.

UPDATE: 2:15 EST – Joss Whedon is present with Fiege. EDIT: Apparently Whedon is via satellite from the UK.

UPDATE : 2:17 EST – Fiege wants to talk about Marvel Phase 3.
Captain America 3 will be released May 6, 2016 (Serpent Society related?)
Doctor Strange released on November 4, 2016

UPDATE: 2:20 EST – Watching ComingSoon.Net as well.
Guardians of the Galaxy will be released May 5, 2017 (video comment from director James Gunn)
Thor: Ragnarok coming July 28, 2017 (picks up immediately where Age of Ultron left off, with both Hemsworth & Hiddleston aboard)

And… BLACK PANTHER coming November 3, 2017!

May 4, 2018 (Skipping for now!)

CAPTAIN MARVEL (Carol Danvers!!) gets a movie july 6th, 2018!

INHUMANS, November 2, 2018!

Fiege is going back to the skipped May 4th, 2018 movie… shows a clip, Nick Fury, Avengers, Soul Gems (Apparently one is in Loki’s staff)… according to Coming Soon’s blogger Silas Lesnick they’re showing live-action footage of an Infinity Gauntlet, held by Thanos.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, Part One in 2018, Part Two in 2019.

Fiege & Whedon now showing an Age of Ultron scene (with no special effects).

They then reveal that the Captain America 3: Serpent Society title wasn’t real and that it is (as has been rumored) Captain America 3: Civil War.

Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. show up. Announce that Chadwick Boseman has been cast as Black Panther. He joins them on stage.

Black Panther concept art inserted at right. Black Panther gets an Easter Egg in Age of Ultron and will show up in full costume in Captain America 3. T’Challa will play a big part in Civil War.

Captain Marvel writer & director news coming soon. Casting will take much longer.

Fiege says Civil War movie will be “very different” than the comics. Also that it will deal with global superhero registration and will have a flashpoint event. Hulk & Black Widow will be in all Avengers movies; no plans for another standalone Hulk movie or a Widow standalone movie yet. Age of Ultron may possibly have Easter Eggs for the Inhumans as well, which we will find out more about very soon.

UPDATE: 2:53 EST – Someone asks Fiege about Spider-Man. He says it’s either “not true at all” or “something not ready to be announced yet.”

And that’s it. Below, nifty new logos!

–George Berryman!

Marvel is holding a press conference at 2pm eastern time. Amazing Spider-Man writer seems to have the scoop about the announcement. Many have speculated that it will be announced that Benedict Cumberbach will be officially confirmed as Doctor Strange in an upcoming Marvel movie. However, Slott hints that it’s Spider-Man related. Could Disney have bought the Spider-Man rights back from Sony? What do you think it’s about? 

So what is Stan saying to Spidey? 1970sMarvelStanLeeSpideySpider-ManAmazingMastJLMast_zps371e3480

The Ultimate Universe is ending next summer… again? Yes, it seems the many Universal Incursions that have plagued Jonathan Hickman’s run on Avengers is leading to an all-new, Secret Wars. Where the various universes of Marvel Comics will go to war with each other and maybe only one will survive. So, it wasn’t too surprising to see the Ultimate Universe might be finally, finally meeting its end. There is just one problem… most people believe the Ultimate Universe ended a while ago. How is that possible?

From the head writer of the 90s Spider-Man cartoon series, John Semper Jr, comes audio recording of the first panel the show was a part of in 1994. It’s an interesting panel, with Stan Lee, Christopher Daniel Barnes (Peter Parker), Sara Ballantine (Mary Jane) and more on the panel.

They discuss things like how last minute the panel was, replacing Gwen with Felicia, future storylines, villains, and more. It’s an interesting look back at history for the iconic show. Be fore-warned, there is a lot of Doctor Who love in this podcast as well, as the episode is framed through the narrative of taking the TARDIS back in time to this panel.

MARVEL PROUDLY ANNOUNCES SPIDER-GWEN!

New Series Focuses on Gwen Stacy who was Bitten by the Radioactive Spider Instead of Peter Parker

 New York, NY—October 17th, 2014 — Revealed at Marvel’s New York Comic Con “Spider-Man” Panel, Marvel Comics is excited to announce the latest addition to the Spider-Man mythos – Spider-Gwen! The new on-going series will focus on Gwen Stacy, who, in an alternate universe, was the one bitten by the radioactive spider giving her spider-powers!

 After a sell-out introductory issue that’s part of the events of the current Spider-Man storyline, “Spider-Verse“, the new series, written by Jason Latour (Edge of Spider-Verse, Wolverine and the X-Men), artist Robbi Rodriguez (Edge of Spider-Verse, All-New X-Men), and colorist Rico Renzi spotlights Marvel’s latest cult-favorite hero as she introduces readers to a whole new world where she is the one true spider-hero!

PeterParkerWeb-ShootersThe answer, as according to a May 10, 2014 article from Matthew Gault at Medium.com, appears to be yes…some day, and some day real soon. Only a real-life Spider-Man won’t happen from someone being bitten by radioactive spider; instead, it may come from research being conducted by the United States Military.

As according to the article, the Pentagon has been working on means for a person to cling to and scale walls without ropes or cables for several years:

Back in 2012, the Air Force formally requested a better way to climb walls. Undergraduates at Utah State University had the winning idea. Their system involves a powerful vacuum attached to suction cups

The setup looks ridiculous and it’s loud—but it works. The Air Force wrote a check for $100,000 for a more compact prototype.

Other developers are working on more elegant solutions.

Scientists applying what’s known as the Van Der Waals force to create clothing that allows human beings to climb vertical surfaces like geckos do. Prof. Kellar Autumn from Lewis & Clark College in Oregon developed a lizard-like synthetic material two years ago. He got the idea while working on wall-scaling robots for the Pentagon.

He’s not the only one. Physicist Nicola Pugno from Turin University in Italy published a paper back in 2007 describing gloves made of carbon nanotubes that help the wearer to stick to surfaces. “We are not very far, in my opinion, from a kind of Spider-Man suit,” Pugno wrote.

There are still others. Using military funding, the University of Massachusetts Amherst is developing Gecksin, its own version of the gecko-inspired material. Engineers at BAE Systems are working on a similar substance.

But if you think this is just limited to wall-crawling, think again. The piece also goes on to state how scientists at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York have already created an experimental “web-fluid” which “gains strength when heated.” Also, the University of Chicago is working on a separate suit which can replicate “spider-sense.”

The suit contains tiny microphones that send and receive ultrasonic signals. If an object gets too close, robotic appendages built into the outfit apply pressure, compelling the wearer to move. [University of Chicago student Victor] Mateevisiti tested the suit by blindfolding participants and arming them with cardboard ninja stars to take down their attackers.

The participants hit their targets—while blindfolded—with 95-percent accuracy.

Also, remember how in The Amazing Spider-Man movie OsCorp had genetically altered spiders in order to mass produce spider-silk?  Well, the article says that’s already happening, too. This includes splicing the DNA from spiders into other organisms, including silkworms, goats, and even tomatoes.

Speaking of OsCorp, remember the Green Goblin healing exoskeleton suit from The Amazing Spider-Man 2? That’s being in development, too:

The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) is the Maserati of military exoskeletons. U.S. Special Operations Command boss Adm. Bill McRaven proposed TALOS a year ago. Along with imparting extra strength, TALOS would assess minor wounds and fractures … and treat them.

Suddenly, comic-book science doesn’t seem so far-fetched anymore.

Thanks to one of our Crawlspace members, Big Al, for notifying me about this fascinating read.
