The major box set can be viewed in the gallery below!RELATED: Zack Snyder Unveils Deleted Joker Scene From Snyder Cut Epilogue“The filmmaking story behind Zack Snyder’s return to his DC Comics juggernaut is well known at this point, but not enough time has been spent on the journey of the film’s once-shelved score,” Mo Shafeek, Mondo Creative Director of Music, said in a statement. “The incredible composer behind one of last decade’s biggest filmmaking triumphs (Mad Max: Fury Road), Tom Holkenborg joined the sadly far-too-large club of composers across filmmaking history to have their blockbuster scores replaced.

    The Falcon and THE WINTERTIME Soldier Ep. 4: Clues, Takeaways & Predictions

    The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Ep. 4: Clues, Takeaways & PredictionsAfter delivering an exciting cliffhanger for fans last week with the return of Dora Milaje member Ayo, Disney+’s latest Marvel Cinematic Universe series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is back with its fourth episode and the stakes are getting higher for the titular duo as the clock is ticking for them to bring Karli and the Flag Smashers down.RELATED: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Ep. 3: Clues, Takeaways & PredictionsClues: Bucky’s Deprogramming, Flag Smasher’s New Plans and Sam & Karli are BondingOn the heels of seeing Ayo appear in the last episode, this week opens with a flashback to Bucky’s time in Wakanda shortly before the events of Infinity War, in which he and Ayo are seen to be working together to assist in his deprogramming, reciting the code words to see if they activate The Winter Soldier but it fails, with a tearful Bucky grateful. In the present, he explains his actions to the Dora Milaje soldier, who agrees to give the White Wolf eight hours to use Zemo to find Karli before they come for him.In the meantime, we see Karli and the Flag Smashers camped out in an isolated area of a forest listening to the news that the Global Repatriation Council is drafting new legislation to reinstate border regulations in response to her attack on the Lithuanian storage depot that killed numerous people.Sam, Bucky and Zemo head to the refugee camp in Latvia in search of information about Donya Modani and Karli’s connection to her, though are mostly turned away by those in the area, except for Zemo, who is able to bribe the children with candy to learn of the location of Donya’s funeral. In an attempt to keep leverage over Sam and Bucky, he refuses to tell them its location but instead lead them there, with Sam reaching out to Sharon to ask for help. She offers to utilize satellites she has access to, though warns that the Power Broker is very irate that Dr. Wilfred Nagel is dead and they need to bring in Karli and the super serum in fast.Before heading to the funeral and delivering her eulogy for Mama Donya, Karli acquires the remaining vials of the super soldier serum from its hiding place, a secret compartment part of the tomb for the grandfather of one of the Flag Smashers.As they head to meet the child who will lead them to the memorial, Sam, Bucky and Zemo are interrupted by Walker and Hoskins, the latter of who wants to go in fast and catch Karli off guard and arrest her, though Sam argues that with his past as a counselor for veterans, he should go in alone and talk to her about revising her approach to her cause. While Walker gives pushback, Hoskins agrees and they head to the area, with all but Sam hanging back and watching over a handcuffed Zemo.While chatting about her methods and Sam slowly breaking through to Karli, an impatient Walker interrupts and attempts to arrest her, leading to a pursuit in which Zemo seemingly escapes as well, though he’s caught up to Karli and shoots and wounds her and destroys nearly all the super soldier serum until he is knocked out by Walker, who finds the last vial intact and pockets it.Frustrated at Sam’s betrayal of her trust, Karli devises a plan to separate him and Bucky and kill the new Captain America in retaliation for the destruction of the vials.Back at Zemo’s hideout, where he toys with Sam’s mind over whether he’d take the serum and the need to eliminate the existence of all super soldiers, Walker and Hoskins storm in and order the titular duo turn Zemo over to their custody. Before Sam and Walker can throw fists, they are interrupted by the Dora Milaje and Walker’s personality pushes him and Hoskins to fight the group, requiring Sam and Bucky to step in and help before they can be killed. However, Zemo escapes (properly) in the commotion, Bucky is disarmed (literally) by Ayo and Walker is left distraught he was beaten by a group without super soldier serum in them.Seemingly swayed by her talk with Sam, Karli reaches out to his sister Sarah to set up a meeting between them, though threatens her and her kids should Sam not adhere to her instructions. Arriving at Karli’s meeting, she downplays the threat as simply wanting to ensure he knew she was serious and asks he join her in her cause, but before he can decide, he receives a call from Sharon noting Walker’s location as walking into a trap, with Bucky and Sam taking off to save him and Hoskins.Meanwhile, Walker and Hoskins make their way through an abandoned building and are separated, with Hoskins being captured and tied up and a distressed Walker making an off-camera decision to take the serum. As Sam and Bucky arrive, they find Walker successfully fighting back against Dovich, clearly now powered-up, and attempt to aid him in his fight against the Flag Smashers to save Hoskins. However, he arrives mid-fight to save Walker from a knife attack by Karli and is subsequently killed when she delivers a devastating punch to his chest that sends him into a nearby pillar.Realizing what she’s done, Karli and the Flag Smashers flee the scene, though a vengeance-fueled Walker chases after the Flag Smasher whose grandfather’s grave was used to hide the remaining serum. Cornering him at a nearby statue, Walker beats the Smasher to death with his shield in front of a horrified crowd, looking out at them with a now bloody shield as the episode ends.Takeaways: Walker is a Super-Powered Killer, Zemo’s in the Wind and The Power Broker’s PissedWell what an ending, eh? From the moment the character was confirmed to be in the series and introduced in the final moments of the pilot, fans have been waiting with bated breath for when the ball would drop and Walker would show his darker side and the time is finally here as we not only got an insight into his crumbling mental psyche and impatient approach to conducting his mission, but the extremes he’s willing to go to, including taking the super soldier serum without a second thought and murdering a Flag Smasher for revenge. Given the rampage the titular duo incurred while visiting Madripoor in the last episode, it’s no surprise the Power Broker is a little upset, but this week seemingly confirmed that the person Sharon was talking to as she drove away from Sam and Bucky was the leader of the island, leaving one to continue to wonder how loyal she’ll be to him if he decides to turn on Sam and Bucky. Much like Walker’s heel turn, audiences have been on the edge of their seats waiting for Zemo to reveal some grand evil plan or to bail on Sam and Bucky and after a few fake-outs in this and last week’s episodes, the villain is now officially in the wind and his motives and future are very unclear. One lighter note found in this week’s episode could be seen in the light bond built between Sam and Karli as he attempted to reason with her on multiple occasions to change her course instead of strictly attempting to arrest or fight her, which could hold weight for the two’s interactions in the final two episodes.RELATED: CS Interview: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Star Erin KellymanPredictions: Civil War Fight Recreation, Sam Will Break Through to Karli and Walker’s Going to JailGiven how many times Bucky has floated the idea to Sam and Walker’s latest dark action with the item, all signs are pointing to the titular heroes having to come to blows with the new Captain America in order to take the iconic vibranium shield from him for one of them to take up the mantle. But with Walker now becoming super-powered, we could very well see a recreation of the emotional fight from the finale of Civil War, only with Falcon and Winter Soldier facing off against Cap instead of Cap and Winter Soldier versus Iron Man.There is seven years, 14 films and a television series between Sam’s introduction in The Winter Soldier which makes it very understandable that some viewers may have forgotten that, prior to his time as an Avenger, he was a counselor for soldiers with PTSD at the VA and therefore is versed enough in conversational tactics to break through to someone such as Karli and bring her to the brighter side of things. With his own displacement from The Blip and struggles at home, he can build that proper emotional connection to her and her cause and if this episode’s initial meeting between the two pointed to anything, it’s that Sam knows she’s just as scared as she is committed and neither wants her dead or arrested, just on a more morally-clear path, and with Walker, the Power Broker and Zemo all a part of the story, there’s plenty of other villains to shift Sam and Bucky’s focus to in order to allow Karli a shot at redemption.A big point that Civil War introduced into the larger MCU that has carried over into Ant-Man and The Wasp and this show in particular is that not even heroes are exempt from the law, especially if their actions don’t result in a successful mission, and with Walker straight up murdering the Flag Smasher at the end of this episode for multiple cameras to see, there’s no way he doesn’t go to prison at the end of all this. Even if the big fight between the titular duo and Walker does happen as predicted, they won’t go so far as to kill him and the mildly-shady GRC will not likely support him if he’s defeated by the two, which will leave the US government no other choice but to lock him up for his horrific actions.It’s kind of hard, for the time being, to predict how things will go for Zemo in the remaining episodes of the series given that Marvel is very much a fan of leaving villain threads open for future projects, case in point Loki’s disappearance in Avengers: Endgame leading into the forthcoming Disney+ series. While both father and son Zemo’s in the comics have ties to various supervillain groups, the problem is none of the members of these groups have been introduced in the MCU as of yet and Helmut’s general motivation for his turn to villainy is different enough from the comics that it’s hard to try and determine where he would go next. Maybe back to Madripoor to overthrow the Power Broker….

Batman (Deluxe) Mini Co. DC Comics Collectible Figure – $32.00from: Sideshow Inc. Prime 1 Studios “Oh, I never really wanted to be a Lord. It wasn’t what you would call an aspiration. But when life throws you time travels, sometimes you gotta make travel-ade.” Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present the Sengoku Joker (Deluxe Version) from Batman Ninja (Animated Film). From the top creators of Japan, Batman Ninja is a Japanese animated film directed by Junpei Mizusaki (“Opening Animation for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Series”). Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports many of Batman’s worst enemies to feudal Japan – along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family to restore order to the land and return to present-day Gotham City. The Statue is inspired by Takashi Okazaki’s stunning design that he created for Batman Ninja Animation. It is crafted with great attention to detail. We also believe it perfectly captures the atmosphere of feudal Japan and the characteristics of Joker. The words on the flag say Devil King Of The Sixth Heaven (Dairokuten-No-Mao/ 第六天の魔王) which is a Devil King from Buddhism. It is a great companion piece to display next to the Ninja Batman. Make sure to collect these two unique statues! Sengoku Joker (Deluxe Version) DC Comics Statue – $1,499.00from: Sideshow Inc. “Groovy!“ Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio present the 1:3 scale Ash Williams statue from Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn. Ashley Joanna Williams also known as Ash is the anti-hero protagonist of the Evil Dead series, played by Bruce Campbell, and created by director Sam Raimi. Ash is one of the few non-monster characters in the “Horror” genre to have such notoriety. He is most easily recognized based on his final iconic appearance armed with a sawed-off double barrel shotgun and a chainsaw strapped to the stump on his right arm where his hand once was. Capturing the likeness and details of Bruce Campbell, this Museum Masterline 1:3 scale statue of Ash Williams comes with an additional alternate portrait stepping on a trap door with Henrietta trying to escape from the cabin cellar floor. The Exclusive version of Ash Williams includes an extra alternate portrait. Evil Dead fans don’t miss your chance to own Ash with his infamous chainsaw and his sawed-off double barrel shotgun! Ash Williams Evil Dead II Statue – $1,499.00from: Sideshow Inc. PCS Collectibles The Satsui no Hado has long been a cautionary tale in the Street Fighter franchise, a destructive form of Ki that exploits the baser aspects of humanity, corrupting even the purest of souls. Goutetsu taught it to his student Akuma, who embraced it, and Gouken, who recognized it’s risk, refusing to train his own disciples. The more we were warned about it, the more we speculated on what would happen if a character as strong as Ryu forsook his education and let the Satsui consume him. Evil Ryu is our answer, Ryu turned inside out, the surge of murderous intent awakened. He can no longer resist the evil energy within, plunging deeper into darkness with every victory. Purged of all traces of honor and decency, this is a Ryu with a blood thirst and ritualistic belligerence bordering on a feral barbarism. Assuming this anger has made him mindless would be your last mistake, however, as Dark Ryu is perhaps the most calculating and dangerous character in the game. In Story Mode, we’ve seen Ryu flashback to his fateful fight with Sagat, how his “cheap win” still torments him. Eyes literally red with anger, he unleashed a Metsu Shoryuken so devastating it scarred Sagat’s chest. Disfiguring an opponent was anguishing enough, but what truly frightened and shamed Ryu is how much feeling that power excited him. But was it an even more pivotal moment in the franchise than we realize? Sideshow and Pop Culture Shock Collectibles are proud to present their independent 1:4 scale Evil Ryu statue, a unique sculpt created from the actual CG model, and not just a palette swap. This is Ryu stained with the blood of death, Supreme Master of the Fist, brutal and murderous, looking for the one that can defeat him. The fine artists at Pop Culture Shock have perfectly captured his menace and power, perfecting all his signature elements, from his animalistic fangs to his Akuma-like spikey inferno of hair. And of course, no Evil Ryu would be complete without the gaping crater to hell burned into his chest, or that scar on his back that looks ominously like a “Heaven” kanji. This high-quality polystone collectible features Evil Ryu in his DLC Player 2 tailored cloth costume, LEDs in the eyes, chest, and back and a screaming portrait. This collectible also has a certificate of authenticity. Evil Ryu Dark Hado Street Fighter Statue – $269.99from: Sideshow Inc. Pop Culture Shock is proud to present Oro, Street Fighter III‘s residential senjutsu master. A longtime favorite of owner Jerry Macaluso, this bizarre brawler is finally coming to life in life-like detail cast in poly-stone resin. “Oro is such a great character and he’s really underserved in terms of product that’s been made for Street Fighter,” said Mr. Macaluso, “I am glad we can help fix that.”PCS’s team of professional sculptors have outdone themselves with this statue, putting eye-popping attention-to-detail in every crease and fold of the ancient one’s anatomy. A weather-worn garment completes the look of the cave-dwelling legendary fighter. Oro is a hermit of Japanese descent who is over 140 years old, having mastered the secrets of immortality. He lives in a deep cave within the Amazon. Although he may not seem very strong, his lack of attachments has allowed him to exceed his legendary fighting skills beyond those of an ordinary person, though he does seem to have a weakness for cute girls. He attained such extraordinary abilities through the mastery of an extreme fighting style known as senjutsu (仙術?). He sets out on a journey to find a worthy successor of his secrets in order to kill time. Through the use of magic, he sealed one of his arms in order to even the odds in favor of his opponents.
