Hollywood Daze: Spider-Man Homecoming

There is a brief update on this post at the bottom.

Today Sony released the cast list for the upcoming Spider-Man Homecoming film. With it came a few spoilers and the confirmation of a few characters entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This post will be filled with spoilers.

The only real casting to keep note of is the change of name for Donald Glover’s character. Glover is now listed as playing Aaron Davis – Aaron Davis is the Prowler in the Marvel Universe. This is an interesting choice and it leads into what I am sure Sony is trying to accomplish with the new Spider-Man trilogy.

Aaron Davis first appears as the Prowler in Amazing Spider-Man #78. If you haven’t been reading Spider-Man in the last 20 years you might think this is just Marvel changing another character for the films – changing him from white to black – however, a black Aaron Davis appears as the Prowler in the Spider-Man Ultimate Universe.  The Ultimate Universe Prowler first appears in Ultimate Spider-Man Volume 2 #1.

How does this lead into the Spider-Man trilogy? In the ultimate universe, Aaron Davis has a nephew, Miles Morales. Donald Glover is not a low profile actor, that with the history of Aaron Davis’s character – one can only assume that Miles Morales will eventually show up in one of the three planned Spider-Man films. One can also assume that Sony is planning spin off films for Miles Morales in the new Sony/ Marvel universe.

Now is the time to be buying Miles Morales key issues. Miles first appears in Ultimate Comics: Fallout #4.

Kevin Fiege has confirmed that Miles Morales exists in the Spider-Man Homecoming universe. Read the full interview here

Week in Review

Two weeks have gone by without a new post, which means I have a lot to talk about in the next few days.

Screen shot 2016-04-14 at 1.19.43 AM

This week sees the release of Marvels new Moon Knight series. Written by Jeff Lemire, the first issue is already seeing rave reviews. This book has a few variants but the one to look for is the 1 in 25 – Marco Rudy Variant. This book has been selling for $15 to $20 in presales but has been trending upwards today with peak sales of $30. This is a book to be looking for.

Another book to be on the hunt for is Spider-Man / Deadpool #1. Into four printings (fourth printing not yet released) – these books are on fire! Spider-Man / Deadpool #1 first print has been selling for upwards of $30! with an average sale price of $15 to $20. Meanwhile, the second and third prints have been selling around double cover at $8, with the third print hitting upwards of $15. All three printings have color variations with the third print having added dialogue.

A book that I was tipped off about on the CGC Boards is Sheriff of Babylon #1. This Vertigo mini-series seems to be selling for upwards of $20 with an average price of $15. This book like Spider-Man / Deadpool #1 has a very high likelihood of being at your local comic book store.

Next Post – THE BOYS

Week in Review: Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #5

This week saw the introduction of the a new spider-man character. In Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #5 we saw the introduction of a A Mary-Jane Iron-Man, code named “MOM”.

mom-600x872

Already this book’s variants have jumped in price. With the 1:200 black and white variants selling for up to $350! This character is already drawing comparisons to Spider-Gwen the Gwen Stacy Iron Man. Considering both Edge of Spider-Verse #2 (First Spider-Gwen) and Amazing Spider-Man #4 (First Silk) current values this book has legs. Right now the Joe Quesada Colour and Sketch variant covers seem to be the books to look for. (There are four different Quesada Variants)

Screen shot 2015-09-10 at 12.14.43 AM As Pointed out by Bleedingcool, this isn’t the first time Mary Jane has put on an Iron-Man Suit. Mary Jane first put on the suit in Marvel Knights Spider-Man #20 – a book that has virtually disappeared off the online marketplace. This book has potential to sell for $20 – and is still findable at your Local Comic Book Store.

HUH?! Spider-Man joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe Announcement

Don’t you love how mainstream comics have become that the Wall Street Journal starts breaking stories? (I talked about this when it was just information from Hacked e-mails but.. ) Yesterday it was announced by the Wall Street Journal that Sony and Disney have come to an agreement that would allow Spider-Man to join films outside of Sony’s Hands, announcing Spider-Man will appear in the upcoming Captain America Civil War film.
This means the Captain America film might be more true to the Civil War books than originally thought, perhaps Captain America really will die at the end of the film?

A few important things to think about.

In the announcement it was made clear that Andrew Garfield (and Tobey Mcguire) will not be appearing as Spider-Man in Captan America and that it will be a “new version of the web-slinger”. What does this mean? Well it could mean that they are finding a new actor for spider-man, or it could mean that THIS spider-man, to appear in Captain America 3, will be a totally different Spider-Man than seen before, perhaps a black Spider-man?

Right now three books to look for,

Ultimate Fallout #4 – Miles Morales becomes Spider-Man. This book is important because if they use a black spider-man this is his first appearance as spider-man. This could be a burn and turn situation where you do not hold onto this book. If its revealed spider-man is white, this book will lose all value. (there is a second print and a 1:25 variant that seem to be doing stupid things online)

$_12
Amazing Spider-Man #532 – Spider-Man joins the Civil War battle. This is going to be an important book black, white, or alien spider-man.

AmazingSpider-Man532

(As pointed out by the guys over at Comicbookinvest) Avengers #316 – Spider-Man joins the Avengers, and indicated on the CGC label as such.

unnamed
All three of these books are quickly disappearing from online marketplaces, which means its only a matter of time before these disappear from your local comic book store. Don’t be left in the cold.

WORD?!?! News from NYCC 3

tumblr_ncb6euUazU1qhuujro1_r1_500

It was announced this weekend that based on recent popularity, Marvel are planning on making a new Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman series. Probably coming out after January – as no new images were provided. This means you have a few months to look for these three books before they jump even higher in value.

Edge of Spider-Verse #2 First appearance – Hitting $15+

$_12-1

Edge of Spider-verse #2 1:25 Variant Cover – Hitting $40

Hawkeye vs Deadpool #NN alleged first appearance -selling for cover or below cover

Marvel has a large fan-base, so even though print runs are higher than most indie books, these three books have long term potential based on how Marvel treats the “Spider-Gwen” character

WORD?!?!: Squirrel Girl and Booster Gold

This week was pretty big for the rumours mill.

Hinted at a few months ago DC has been prepping up Booster Gold for something big, even with well today an article came out that said at a recent Q and A, Geoff Johns, Chief Creative officer at DC, said that it was very possible that Booster Gold would be appearing in the upcoming Flash TV-Series. (With Firestorm also already announced for the show, this is looking like a super-hero high school scenario) – This could be DC testing the character out before trying to develop something through the DC universe films – we already know that DC put Booster Gold Easter Eggs in the recent Batman Film so if Booster Gold appears on TV, its only a matter of time before he appears on the big screen. Booster Gold did appear in the Smallville tv series, however it wasn’t a very detailed role and Smallville sucked after season 1, anyone who thinks I’m wrong is lying to themselves.

This book has been trending upwards in the past few months – Its only going to go higher, Booster Gold #1 VOL.1 1986

Booster Gold #1 (First app.)Another book that has been trending upwards recently- With near mint sales on ebay ranking the $40 range – The first appearance of Squirrel Girl, Marvel Super Heroes Winter Special #NN 1991, Previously highlighted

Marvel Winter Special 1991 (first squirel girl)
Today Marvel announced an ongoing series titles the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. A few months ago it was also reported that Marvel had taken out the trade mark for the rights to the name Squirrel Girl – which makes me think the comic series is just the first step in Marvel’s new disney-influenced kids oriented publications and the first step in making money off of the Squirrel Girl property.
Wouldn’t she look cute next to Rocket Racoon? No. Because she is dating another character who has also been getting a lot of articles written about him.

penance1Yes. Balls.

Speedball. No, not the act of mixing Heroin with Cocaine in a syringe and getting high, Speedball the terrible character created by Steve Ditko that no one cares about… until now. Speedball has been rumoured to be appearing in the Shield Tv-Show, “announced”
via an actor’s twitter account – so its really just the rumour mill. However, Speedball will be appearing in the Squirrel Girl series – so it would be pretty smart to listen to Bleedingcool for once and pick up some of his first appearances, The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #22.

Coming Up:
-Five Ghosts confirmed for TV-Series – no longer rumour mill
-Why is Battle Pope so undervalued?
Read this about Ex Machina – Good spec

Word?!: Ultimate Spider-Man #152

This book has been picked up in the J Scott Campbell craze. I only saw it now, and I’m really surprised at the price it’s been fetching. 
$15 to $25 – for a run where most of the issues sell for $1 – $3. 
I can only chalk this up to being one thing; bizarre

Ultimate Spider-Man #152 Selling for $15 to $25+
