Yule log videos have become a cherished holiday tradition for many over the past few years, with some TV networks airing this crackling fireplace log on a loop all throughout Christmas Day. This year, Marvel is getting in the holiday spirit, by releasing a whopping 10 hours of Yule log videos, which take fans into the homes of some of Marvel Comics' most popular superheroes. While none of the heroes themselves are featured in these videos, die-hard fans will certainly notice a number of intricate references to each hero.
These videos debuted on Marvel Entertainment's YouTube today, which takes fans inside Captain America's Brooklyn apartment, Captain Marvel's New Jersey home, Thor's Asgard home, Iron Man's Manhattan apartment and the Guardians of the Galaxy's spaceship. There are actually two videos for each of these heroes, one which features a wider shot of each hero's living room, and another which offers a close-up view of the fireplace itself. Each of these videos runs just over one hour in length, so if you're getting ready for a long day with your relatives, you'll have plenty of Marvel Yule Log videos to play in the background.
The Captain America video features Cap's original World War II shield resting on the fireplace mantle, while his new vibranium shield rests against a chair. In the close-up video, we can also see that the picture frame on the end table features Cap's true love, Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). Captain Marvel's wide-frame video is interesting as well, since we never see anyone enter the frame, but there are ambient conversations that can be heard throughout the hour-long video. In the close-up video, we can see an Avengers comic book laying on the couch. This is the first video of any kind we've seen associated with Brie Larson's character, and could be considered a first look.
Thor's video features a number of Asgard symbols seen throughout the mighty warrior's home, which also features which looks like the full hide of a white wolf laying on the floor. The close-up video features miniature versions of Thor's mystical hammer, Mjolnir, and his mask, with the fireplace itself offset by two golden ram statues. Thor is clearly living a more luxurious life than his heroic counterparts, but that is to be expected, since he is Asgardian royalty. The next hero is living in the lap of luxury as well, with a glimpse inside Iron Man's luxury apartment.
Tony Stark's Manhattan apartment features a large self-portrait hanging over the fireplace, with four different Iron Man masks resting on the mantle. The up close video offers a better look at the Iron Man masks, along with a close-up look at what seems to be a pizza box with the Avengers logo on it. The final video takes us aboard the Guardians of the Galaxy's spaceship Milano, with a glowing orange ball representing "fire" on this ship. We don't get to see much in the dimly-lit wide frame video, but the close up video shows that Baby Groot is hanging out by the fire. Take a look at all of these Marvel videos below, to get in the holiday spirit with your favorite heroes.
