Marvel Will Auction Netflix Shows Props and Costumes

If you didn’t know, Marvel’s shows on Netflix are discontinued. Though this is a sad truth, something quite unique is coming out of it. If you have some spare change lying around, you could actually own something straight from the Marvel shows on Netflix. Marvel is actually auctioning off several pieces from iconic shows such as Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist. 

 

 

One of the most expensive items that will be available, which is the first iteration of Matt Murdock’s Daredevil costume, starts at $10,000. It is estimated to bring in around $30,000 to $50,000. The tank where Luke Cage was experimented on starts at $6,000, and has estimates to bring in between $12,000 and $15,000. Several versions of Daredevil’s costume, like the Red First Iteration costume, is going for $30,000 to $50,000. Luke Cage’s Protection Costume will start from $2,500 to $3,500.

Though the items named above are not very affordable, there are actually a plethora of much cheaper ones you can get a hold of. Elektra Natchios’ robe starts at only $250, and Murdock’s cassette recorder, starts at even lower $150, so it is very possible to get your hands on one of those.

Marvel ended their Netflix shows last year, which included Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and The Punisher.

The auction is running from August 12th to the 13th. If you want to bid, you can register here.

3 Absolutely Ridiculous Comic Book Characters You’ve Never Heard Of

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article about three of my personal favorite comic book characters who I felt deserve more recognition. This got me intrigued, so I continued to research the world of obscure comic book characters from diverse universes. Not far into my research, I came across three characters I would have never believed actually existed. Their eccentricity had me deeply baffled, yet I was so riveted that I had to dig deeper. These are three absolutely ridiculous comic book characters you probably don’t know, but need to check out.

 

 

Eye-Scream

Eye-Scream is a mutant gifted with an unusual ability: to turn into ice cream. He was often ridiculed by other mutants and humans for his laughable power. Eye Scream made a decision to destroy the X-men, as their powers made his look pointless and stupid. Unfortunately, the X-men, with help from Obnoxio the clown, completely froze him. He was never seen again.

 

Matter-Eater Lad

A member of the Legion of Super Heroes in the 30th and 31st centuries from the DC universe, this guy can eat anything. His natural biology allows him to consume literally any form of matter. In fact, everyone from his home planet, Bismoll, has this ability. When the natives of Bismoll found that microbes had made all their food inedible, the population evolved their capability to eat all matter as a survival mechanism. Though this seems quite useless, it has made Matter Eater Lad an unstoppable force at times.

 

 

Arm-Fall-Off-Boy

Another DC universe character from the 30th century, Arm-Fall-Off-Boy has the ability to detach his own limbs, which he can then use as weapons. His background information is relatively unknown. In fact, Matter-Eater Lad claims he gained his powers through carelessness while holding the anti-gravity metal Element 152, but that’s it. From the planet Lallor, he is one of the most famous Legion of Super Heroes reject due to just how ridiculous his powers are.

The Amazing Spider-Man #13 is one of Spider-Man’s earliest stories, featuring the first appearance and debut of Mysterio. We learn in this story that Mysterio has no superpowers but instead an array of colorful gadgets and magic tricks that he uses to pass off as a superhero. Within the story, he courts public approval, finding fame as J. Jonah Jameson supports Mysterio as a crimefighter and Mysterio goes after Spider-Man to become the top dog in town. This is a must-read for seeing the debut of Mysterio, even if the story is very dated and clunky to modern eyes. But it’s a classic that shouldn’t be overlooked.

 

5. ‘Aliens and illusions!’

But it’s all revealed to be a scheme by Mysterio, whose been using his illusion abilities to craft the threat. Ultimately, it ends on a classic confrontation and showcasing how Mysterio isn’t so goofy when he wants to be serious, despite his hideous outfit.

It’s up to Spider-Man and his friend Carlie Cooper to solve the mystery, leading to a twist you’ll have to read to see for yourself!

Marvel wants to call of the dibs on Keanu Reeves’s next film credits. Everyone on the internet may want to claim ownership of the beloved Keanu, who has become a true man of the people, but none more than Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige.

 

 

“We talk to him for almost every film we make,” Feige told ComicBook.com. “We talk to Keanu Reeves about, I don’t know when, if, or ever he’ll join the MCU, but we very much want to figure out the right way to do it.”

Marvel still has yet to announce its official slate of new films, as well. Huffpost reports that Reeves is rumored to star in The Eternals alongside Angelina Jolie, but Feige won’t be making any confirmations about future films until Spider-Man: Far From Home premieres.

 

I will say all of the post Comic-Con, post Spider-Man: Far From Home stuff. … Here’s an exclusive. We’re gonna keep making movies. We’re gonna still keep making movies after these two. And we will talk about them soon after Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out.

 

After the still devastating loss of Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame, we the people are in dire need of some amazing casting news. However, Reeves is still very busy with his most recent projects. He is currently promoting Toy Story 4, and is set to star in another John Wick film as the hit action series continues to gain popularity.

Reeves did recently express interest in playing Wolverine though.

 

 

During a puppy-playing interview that BuzzFeed hosted, Reeves was asked by fans which Marvel or DC superhero he would want to play in the future.

“I don’t know,” said Reeves. “When I was a kid, I always wanted to play Wolverine. So Wolverine.”

Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine concluded with grace (and a lot of blood) in Logan. X-Men is now owned by Disney and Marvel. The stars are aligned. The Keanussance rages. Give Keanu his adamantium claws, please.
