Marvel x East Continental Gems
Unveiled at Comicon 2022 in San Diego, these magical stones (valued at $25M US) were showcased in a custom Infinity Gauntlet display. The reception from fans and collectors was extremely exciting. No one was expecting to see these magical objects in reality. But that’s exactly what comic book fans got. By all accounts it was one of the convention’s highlights.
The most valuable Marvel collectable series in history.
As an old school Creative Director, Marvel storylines and folklore are programmed into my DNA. The opportunity to participate in this project with two incredible brands like this is a dream come true. Together, they have built a bridge between fantasy and reality.Adam Jarvis

The Walt Disney Company revealed a massive slate of new projects from Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, National Geographic, Hulu, FX and more on its platform Disney Plus as well. While other large entertainment brands are fumbling to adapt, Disney drops a long list of movies all of us would like to see right now. This creates something that most content providers struggle with – anticipation.
Here are some of the upcoming movies in development that were announced at Disney’s end-of-year investor day.
Marvel‘s Spider-Man Miles Morales Superstar Shoes
Pay homage to a hero in Marvel‘s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Superstar shoes. In collaboration with Marvel, PlayStation, and Insomniac Games, these adidas Superstars take inspiration from the game itself. Miles wears them in the game, and now you can, too. Featuring a black and red design that gives a nod to the iconic suit of Spider-Man and Miles Morales himself. Spider web graphics and PlayStation details bring the story to life.
User Interfaces are the texture of this film
Although, I did feel that the bad language did little to advance the plot, The Avengers sequel was pretty awesome. My two kids and I thought it was great.
The stunning technology sequences in this movie were the real star for me. And if there’s an Academy Award for user interface design, then expect to see the team at Territory in tuxedos. Wow.
All systems go.
Swearing neither enhances the dialogue nor propels the story
This weekend, I took my kids to see Avengers – Age of Ultron. Although I knew that the violence and scary scenes might be a little much for a six year old, I allowed my nostalgic love for comics to rule.
The first word of dialogue was “Shit!”
It set the tone for a running gag that was peppered with phrases like “kick your ass” and “son of a bitch“. It seamed as though the only other person who objected was Captain America.
But truth be told – it really bothered me. My nine year old daughter and I talked about it at length at bedtime. It bothered her too.
