NO ONE could have predicted the meteoric popularity of Marvel films before Robert Downey Jr. stepped into the Iron Man suit back in 2008. Now, 10 years, and a few billion dollars later, we have the clarity of hindsight to appreciate, not only that film but ALL the Marvel movies that have come since then.
To celebrate 10 marvelous years of movies, Marvel has released a bevy of posters highlighting some of the reasons why their films are so popular, their characters. Marvel has proven that is you put compelling characters into a rich story line, the sky is the limit. Here’s a look at all the posters.
Crazy good right? Is it just us or did Star Lord and Scarlet Witch get their jackets from the same galactic retailer? Anyhow, Marvel is giving fans a chance to win a private screening of “Ant-Man and the Wasp” for you and 100 of your closest friends. (And there is no purchase necessary!)

Let’s face it, there are bullies and opinionated people everywhere, even in a galaxy far, far away. However, when people single out, and continually attack someone on social media, well, that is NEVER acceptable.
Star Wars fans around the globe have been coming to the side of actress Kelly Marie Tran after she has been on the defense against this type of social media harassment. Director Rian Johnson and Mark Hamill have gotten involved and shown their undying support of this lovely actress.
Now the art community is joining in with a new fan art campaign called “Fan Art For Rose.” Simply click the hash tag #fanartforrose on Twitter or Instagram and you can see all kinds of art dedicated to her character, “Rose Tico,” in “The Last Jedi.” Here is a look at just SOME of our favorites.

Kelly, please know that there are more folks on your side, who support you and can’t wait to see what you do next, than against you… Just remember…
“This is how we win. Not fighting what we hate. Saving what we love.”

Sony has a big year planned with Spider-Man related releases but after seeing the new trailer for “Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse,” we are on the fence with which one we are more pumped to see. (The other movie being “Venom” with Tom Hardy.)
This time out we get a look at teenager Mile Morales as he discovers he isn’t the ONLY one with spider-like abilities. The film looks unlike ANY other comic book themed movie we have ever seen.
“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind “The Lego Movie” and “21 Jump Street,” bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.”
The movie touts an impressive voice cast including: Shameik Moore, as the voice of Spider-Man/Miles Morales, Jake Johnson as Miles’ mentor Peter Parker, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, Mahershala Ali as Miles’ uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles’ father Jefferson, Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, and Lily Tomlin as Peter Park’s Aunt May.
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse” slings into theaters this Christmas and we can’t WAIT!

Patrick Nagel has one of the most identifiable, minimalist art styles ever and even though he passed away in 1984 at the young age of 38, his work still inspires many today. It was his work for Playboy and the cover of Duran Duran’s 1981 album cover, “Rio,” that catapulted him into the mainstream. If you were around in the 80’s it’s a guarantee you’ve seen his work.
Now, Darkstar Skateboards is offering limited edition skate decks and apparel with this prolific artist’s work featured on them.
Each of the four, limited edition decks bears the name of one of Darkstar’s elite skateboarders, Ryan Decenzo, Greg Lutzka, Ke’chaud Johnson, and Dave Bachinsky

From AT-AT Walkers and the Millenium Falcon to Yoda, Jabba The Hut and Greedo, Richard Wilkinson has given the Star Wars Universe a whole new spin with his new poster series.
As the title suggests, Richard has incorporated fictional insects featuring characteristics from vehicles and characters from a galaxy far, far away. This set of images, which are available to purchase HERE, are part of a book he has in the works called “Arthropoda Iconicus Volume 1,” which will explore other pop culture icons.
Picking a favorite is difficult, to say the least, given that we love them ALL, but given his unique interpretation of the franchise we love so dearly, we can’t WAIT to see what he comes up with next.
