FUNKO Pop figures have grown explosively over the past few years capturing all of your favorite characters in cute stylized formats. The Dark Tower film is no exception to this and we have gotten two new POP’s featured in the likeness of Idris Elba’s Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey’s Man in Black. But wait…what’s that The Man in Black is holding?
It looks like a small crystal ball, of which there can only be 13 options for what this item might be. The Bends of the Rainbow, or Merlyn’s Rainbow, are 13 colored crystal balls that hold immense power and allow the users to communicate with each other. These Bends are prolific beginning in book four of The Dark Tower, The Wizard and the Glass, and re-appear a few times throughout the story, but were never present in the first book.
We know full well that this movie is not a direct adaptation of the book, and King on twitter has released posters calling this outing of our characters the “Last Time Round” and has put the Horn of Eld back in the hands of our trust Gunslinger. Now we know that The Man in Black also has some toys he can use. Do you think this is truly a Bend of the Rainbow? Let us know below!
