First look–A day for new Marvel supersuits

Paul Bettany Vision

Marvel Studios must have felt like Santa Claus yesterday.

Yesterday Marvel previewed four costumes for characters being pulled from the comic book page to the TV and film: from the superhero side Fantastic Four’s Thing and Netflix’s Daredevil, and from the villainy camp Ant-Man’s Yellowjacket and The Avengers: Age of Ultron’s Vision.

Today Netflix releases its entire first season of Daredevil for convenient binge-watching.  Lawyer Matt Murdoch (played by Charlie Cox) has a new red suit.

Marvel revealed both the new Thing from Fantastic Four played by Jamie Bell and Paul Bettany’s Vision (above, top).  Of all the reveals we’re thinking the cybernetic Vision is pretty striking.

Corey Stoll will play Ant-Man’s nemesis Yellowjacket in Marvel’s Ant-Man opposite Paul Rudd.

Deadpool Ryan Reynolds

Joining the elite team of actors portraying more than one superhero on the screen–Chris Evans (Captain America, Fantastic Four’s Human Torch) and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns, The Flash’s Atom)–Ryan Reynolds was seen this week filming stunt scenes as Marvel’s Deadpool.  Reynolds previously played Green Lantern Hal Jordan in DC’s big-screen Green Lantern.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters May 1, 2015.

Ant-Man will arrive in theaters July 17, 2015.

New Thing

Look for Fantastic Four in theaters August 7, 2015.

Deadpool is scheduled for release February 12, 2016, starring Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin (Gotham, Firefly, Homeland).

And as we mentioned above, check out Daredevil now streaming on Netflix.
