All New Captain America #1 Stephen Colbert Variant

All New Captain America #1 Stephen Colbert Variant

As originally announced on “The Colbert Report” on July 16th, 2014, Sam Wilson aka “The Falcon” is taking over the role of Captain America, after Steve Rogers was drained of the Super Soldier Serum that gave him his strength, speed and endurance, leaving him unable to wield the shield.

And sadly for Stephen Colbert, despite having Captain American’s shield hanging on the wall of “The Colbert Report” set, he was not chosen to become the new Captain America. Instead, Marvel commissioned one of their artists, Kris Anka, to design an image of Stephen as Falcon to be used as a variant cover for the “All New Captain” to be released on November 12th, 2014.

FedEx CEO Fred Smith was ostensibly the main man at the Ad Council’s annual fundraising dinner on Wednesday night, but it can be hard even for the winner of a public service award to compete with The Man Who’s Succeeding David Letterman.

Yes, Stephen Colbert, in his waning days as host of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report and just months away from taking the reins of CBS’s The Late Show, shined in his role as emcee of the event, which drew some 1,400 ad executives to the Waldorf Astoria in New York and raised a record $3.5 million.

‘The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore’ to Premiere on January 19, 2015

Larry Wilmore’s Comedy Central show won’t be titled The Minority Report, instead it will take a cue from one of the channel’s flagship shows.

The new series was retitled “The Nightly Show” and will premiere on January 19, according to The New York Times.

Wilmore, a former correspondent on The Daily Show, was named in May the host of the forthcoming 11:30 pm show, which will take the place of The Colbert Report. When the comedian’s show was first announced, the original title was The Minority Report With Larry Wilmore.

In an interview with the Times, Wilmore said that name change was to avoid “brand confusion.”

“It was never intended to be a show only about minorities,” Wilmore told the newspaper. “It’s a show about underdogs, and that happens in a lot of different forms, whether it’s race, gender, or whatever.”
