Sam Jackson getting ready to do cameos; More pics from Captain America; Marvel regain top spot in January sales, overall sales down
Sam Jackson was on Jimmy Fallon last night and said that he will be filming his cameos for Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger as early as next month. He also said that he will be doing screen tests with five actresses this Friday for his "assistant" in the upcoming Avenger movie directed by Joss Whedon. Who is it? Well, the first name that came to my mind is Maria Hill, but it could be Sharon Carter (Agent 13) or Linda Danvers (Ms. Marvel). We shall see...
First off...Hydra goons
In December, Marvel had 32.28% of the market share of the number of comics shipped in that month to comic stores, while DC surged ahead with 33.07% for the first time in decades. In January, Marvel jumped up to 42.37% while DC slipped to 31.80%.
Overall, January 2011 sold over 20% less comics and graphic novels than in January 2010.
