Video: Spreading my arms and taking to the skies like an eagle has always been my biggest fantasy. The closest I've ever come is piloting a two-seater Cessna, which was fun, but nowhere near as exhilarating as Jarno Cordia's latest stunt involving a wingsuit and a pair of jet engines strapped to his ankles.

Part of what makes Spider-Man Spider-Man is his ingenuity. His ability to make things on his own and be an independent superhero. Which is why some fans were concerned when trailers for Spider-Man Homecoming made it seem like Tony Stark did most of the work for him.
When a fancy new toy is revealed, it isn't uncommon to have to wait a few months to actually get your hands on one. But Hot Toys has been testing the resolve of Iron Man fans who pre-ordered the company's towering Hulkbuster figure over two and a half years ago, and will now have to wait just a little while longer for delivery.
I love Spider-Man. He's forever been my favourite superhero, so the thought of a new movie being out in less than a month, under the creative influence of Marvel itself, should have my excitement levels through the roof. But they aren't, and that's mainly because of the presence of a particular billionaire playboy genius.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our roundup of the shiniest toys currently threatening that pile of money you have in your back account. This week we have an incredibly detailed Wolverine figure, Spider-Man: Homecoming's weirdest new Spider-tech made robo-flesh, and some unique DC comics statuettes. Hide your wallets!
Tony Stark can't stop tinkering., That's why anytime Iron Man shows up in a Marvel movie, he's inevitably sporting a new suit of armour (I suppose merchandise might also play a small role.) The upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming certainly won't be an exception, as Tony Stark has a brand new Mark XLVII suit he'll be wearing — and we finally have a good look at it, courtesy of... the merchandise.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our roundup of the most interesting toys we've seen this week. It's a Guardians of the Galaxy blowout as we have life-sized Groots, creepy plush Groots and a fancy cassette player. But wait, there's more — including a very swanky David Bowie figure and a very large Iron Man. Check it out!
Marvel's cinematic universe is all connected... in theory. When it comes to the TV shows, they have to be as vague as they can when they refer to a character or event from the films — while the films ignore them wholesale. Here's a round up of the silliest avoidances from across Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist.
When Civil War chose to lay the groundwork for Spider-Man's costume at the feet of Tony Stark rather than Peter Parker, we all knew it meant there was going to be some techy-upgrades to the classic Spidey Lycra. But new footage from Homecoming gives Peter a new trick up his... well, not-sleeve that's straight out of the Iron Man playbook.
Video: Iron Man's replacement in Marvel's current comics, Riri Williams, was an MIT student before she started flying high as the Invincible Ironheart. So it's pretty damn awesome that a group of her real-life alumni have made their own fan film about the young hero and her life at the university.
Companies like Hot Toys are known for their incredibly realistic action figures, but you can only pack so much detail into a toy that's 30cm tall. So a Chinese company called The Toys Asia has taken the concept of an action figure to a whole new level with a life-size, fully-animated version of Iron Man's armour.
Remember those Samurai-style Star Wars toys? Well, Bandai has also kicked off a Marvel-themed version, and the results are just as awesome.
Here's the weird thing about an already great movie like Captain America: Civil War. It's such a big hit that it doesn't have to be a good Blu-ray. It could be the movie on a disc in a paper slipcover and it would sell like crazy. But thankfully, Marvel decided to pack the release with lots of solid, additional content.
