We all know Heimdall, the brave gatekeeper who watches over the universe protecting his people and the famous rainbow bridge. In the comic's however there's a little bit more story to this character and when I read it got me to thinking. I'll give you a short version of his story so we can speculate afterwords.

Heimdall's sister is lady Sif (what? yep!). In the comics they aren't all that close since Heimdall is bound to his duty as gatekeeper and spends most of his time at his post.
The first time Heimdall was defeated was by the fire demon Surtur who destroyed the rainbow bridge. After this incident Heimdall was released of his duty and he spend a lot more time in Asgard. During this time he became close with Amora the enchantress.
Later Odin gave some of his powers to Heimdall so he could rebuild the rainbow bridge and thus his watch continued.
Times later Odin was about to start his Odinsleep and in this time he decided to give most of his powers to Heimdall so he could rule Asgard in his absence.

After handeling one crisis after an other Loki was able to take over Odin's body and banish Heimdall to the dream dimension. It was Amora who'd saved Heimdall but left him again afterwords realizing that his duty towards his people would always stand in their way.

Later after Ragnarok, all the Asgardians soles were locked into mortal bodies and when Thor had rebuild Asgard, Heimdall helped him track down the humans who had an Asgardian sole in them. This so he could return his people.

Now what I'm about to say is just a mere guess but I think Heimdall might play a bigger role in the next Thor franchise. The rainbow bridge being broken has already happened and out of the last Thor movie we could assume that Odin's body might have been taken over by Loki so who knows?

Hey guy's, a lot of Marvel fuzz the last few days. Disney send out a shitload of stuff to talk about, the Spiderman Homecoming trailer, the Guardians of the galaxy vol 2 trailer and also a great deal of new photo's and info on the upcoming movies.
We wrote about it as much as we could and tried to share as much info as possible, thank you for reading it!

Now that the dust has settled we'd like to take the time to talk about SWORD. Something tells me they'll be appearing in the movies soon with al the extraterrestrial action lately.
We all know SHIELD by now. Not only was Marvel able to integrate this organization in almost every MCU film so far, they got there own series as wel! (Agents of SHIELD).

SWORD started out as a sub division of SHIELD and were specialized in extraterrestrial threats. The two worked tight for a long time until the departure of Nick Fury as director. The relations of the two organizations are known to be blurred after his leave.

The director of SWORD is special agent Abigail Brand. They primarily operate from their main hideout which is a space station called 'the peak'. Luckily this one is not known for crashing in the sea every other chapter of it's story like the helicarrier. In the series 'The Avengers: earths mightiest heroes' the main base of SWORD is 'the Damoclies' which is the captured alien space ship of Kang the conqueror.

So basically SWORD is like SHIELD, only difference is that shield deals with earth problems and sword with space ones.
With a new guardians of the galaxy and Thanos coming up we hope the introduce this as well. Erik Salvig refered to sword once in the alternate ending of Thor.

Wing Suit Spidey

If you haven’t read the early Spiderman versions (I’m talking real old, the first versions of Spidey created back in 1962) you probably didn’t know that Spidey originally had the small web wings (kind of like a flying squirrel).

Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield both didn’t have these but we now know that Tom Holland will rock the wings in his new suit! He won’t actually be able to fly (no use for the web shooters that way) but he will be able to glide above New York city.
If you think about it, it’s not a bad feature to have when you’re able to swing around the city. He is already kind of falling every time he lets go of his web and with the wing-suit he can guide his fall.

As we know Spidey will be facing the Volture in his upcoming movie so it might come in handy against a airborne endemie.
We don’t really know if Spidey added the wings himself or if it’s a update that Stark provided.
I like how there is a logical explanation on how Spidey gets his fancy suit. In the older films Peter Parker makes his own suits but I never found that it made much sense since they had limited resources as a normal teenage kid and still made amazing looking suits.
Stark making the suit just looks way more logical.

The Vulture

The Vulture! You guys might have seen this coming. I haven’t written about him before but since we always try to stay up to date on al the media we just had to handle this one.
If you haven’t seen the Spiderman homecoming trailer shame on you! Hurry to our Facebook page and watch it right away. Seriously!

If you have seen it, good fan! One of the most shocking reveals to me was the Vulture. I was quit sure that Shocker would be the main villain and i’d already posted about it (here). Maybe they’ll use two villains or maybe the rumours were just nonsens. It doesn’t really matter since now you’ll get to read about a second classic Spiderman villain.

Adrian Toomes was a former electronics engineer. He designed a suit which allowed him to fly and gave him superhuman strength. He’s a remorseless killer and quit old. It’s clear since he tries to regain youth many times in the comic series. At one point he even steals Peter’s youth leaving Peter Parker old but that (of course) did not last very long.

He teamed up a lot of times with other villains in order to kill the webslinger. He’s been part of almost every version of the sinister six.

When we look at the suit that will be used in the movie we can see it wil be way more mechanical than the comic versions which kind of makes sense since you else have to explain how a man is able to fly with a simple suit made of feathers and fur.
Still they did keep the typical green colour which is nice. All things aside the trailer looks great and i really just can’t wait for this to happen!

Howard the duck

Some of you might have heard of him, Howard the duck! A talking duck born and raised in New Stork city at Duckworld, a world a lot like ours but here the dominant species are ducks and humans do not exist. What most of you probably didn't know is that Howard is a Marvel character.

Howard always was a true disappointment. His parents Dave and Dotti weren't very proud of him. He always made a mess of things and could not keep a job. Nobody at duckworld actually really liked him. One day he runs into a power hungry demon called Thog. Thog was messing with magic in the hope to rule all of reality but instead he teleports Howard to earth.
At first Howard thinks he's still on his own planet since earth and duckworld are much alike but when he sees the whole planet is ruled by hairless monkeys he realizes what happened.

Howard wasn't alone, Thog had teleported other strange beings to earth and they teamed up to defeat the demon. Howard fought along side Korrek the barbarian, Jennifer Cale, Dakimh the enchanter and the man- thing. They did win the fight but howard got teleported again to Cleveland, Ohio.
Here Howard starts building a life and tries to keep a job. He encounters some other heroes like Spiderman and she hulk.
He also fights a lot of strange foe's named Ducktor Doom, Spider Ham, Captain Americana and Grey Panther.

I think Marvel wanted to make some kind of funny spinoff series away from all the superhero seriousness and this is how they came up with Howard the Duck. At the post credits scene in guardians of the galaxy you can see him in the colectors hall of collections and he had his own movie
back in 1986.
