If your like me you are no doubt waiting for Venom and Avengers Infinity War this summer. Well Diamond Select just unveiled some new statues to go along with these films as part of their ever growing Marvel Line.
The first as you can see is everyone's favorite Symbiote Venom aka Eddie Brock, is a journalist who exposes the identity of a serial killer only for the real killer to be caught by Spider-Man, thus he accused the wrong man. Disgraced and suicidal, he comes into contact with an alien Symbiote, rejected by Peter Parker. The Symbiote bonds with him and they become Venom, together seeking out revenge against their mutual enemy. Though he repeatedly comes into conflict with Spider-Man, he also attempts to operate as a hero, albeit a violent one, seeking to save those he deems "innocent"
Starring Tom Hardy Venom is set to hit theatres this October and with an R rating it should prove to be a hit with fans of the comics and tell horror community as well.
This piece is absolutely stunning as it captures the Symbiote bonding with Brock. The detail looks incredible.
Not to be outdone by Venom Diamond Select has also made his Arch enemy Carnage into a statue as well.
Cletus Kasady was a serial killer. He was then captured and sent to Ryker's Island prison for 11 murders—though he bragged about killing a dozen more where he shared a cell with Eddie Brock, the host of the alien symbiote that turns into the supervillain Venom. When Brock's symbiote soon returned to be bonded again, allowing Venom to escape prison, the symbiote unknowingly left its offspring in the cell; due to its alien mindset, the symbiote felt no emotional attachment to its offspring, regarding it as insignificant, and thus never communicated its existence to Brock via their telepathic link. The new symbiote then bonded with Kasady, transforming him into Carnage.He escaped prison,and began a series of murders, and at the scene of each crime, wrote "Carnage" on the walls with his own blood.
Rumors are flying that Carnage will pop up after the credits in the Venom and speculation is that Woody Harrelson will be playing him.
The statue is top notch. I love the detail in it as well as the left hand being an ax, showing the power of the Symbiote.
Thanos was born on Saturn's moon Titan, and is the child of Eternals Mentor and Sui-San. Thanos carries the Deviants gene, and as such shares the physical appearance of the Eternals' cousin race. At birth, his mother was shocked by his appearance and attempted to kill him. During his school years, Thanos was a pacifist and would only play with his brother Eros (Starfox) and pets. By adolescence, Thanos had become fascinated with nihilism and death, worshipping and eventually falling in love with the physical embodiment of death, Mistress Death. As an adult, Thanos augmented his physical strength and powers mystically and artificially. He also attempted to create a new life for himself by starting a family. He is visited again by Mistress Death, for whom he murders his family.
Thanos as we also know is after the Infinity Stones and in the upcoming Avengers movie he is here to get them. 10 years in the making Infinity War looks to shatter box office records.
Game Stop will be selling this Thanos Statue Exclusively. The fact that he is standing on top of a mountain of skulls further adds to the evil look.
Well I don't yet have a release date I can tell you these look to be priced at 50.00 I will post more information as I get it.
