The latest Daredevil motion poster is more revealing than you think. It shows all the major characters and there are quite a few background details to inspect. Little big things like Avengers Tower, and a reflection that reveals Daredevil’s red suit, or at least a different suit than the black ninja-esque one we’ve seen. Check out the motion poster below and see if you can spot all the small details. (more…)

In Honor of Women’s History Month (although I didn’t quite know it was Women’s History Month), Nintendo is highlighting some of everyone’s favorite female characters such as Samus Aran, Rosalina and Toadette.  Paving the way for diverse and interesting female protagonists in video games, Nintendo has picked a few of their popular leading ladies that merit this recognition for the month that honors outstanding women.

In a series of images invoking the World War II-era Rosie the Riveter posters, Nintendo calls our attention to seven leading Nintendo ladies. Tetra, Toadette, Bayonetta, Rosalina, Lucina, Samus and even Bombette each remind women that “We can do it!” (more…)

Silicon Valley star T.J. Miller is known for playing mouthy smart alec characters. He’s like the out of shape ginger version of Ryan Reynolds. Who, incidentally, will co-star against in FOX’s upcoming Deadpool movie. It will be interesting to see how these two jive talking jerks play off each other.

Now we know Reynolds is playing the films titular anti-hero, but what roll is T.J. Miller being pegged for? A recent Tweet from Miller leads us to believe he’s something of a weasel. (more…)

The first all-character poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron featured so many characters that it might has well have been a layout for “Where’s Waldo?”. In the time since, the Marvel marketing machine has been releasing individual posters for each of the characters in the star studded super sequel. Last leaving off with Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver, there’s really no human left to put their mug on a poster. Keyword there being “human”.

Marvel Studios has released a new character poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron featuring the villain from the film, in all his robot glory. (more…)
