It wouldn’t be San Diego Comic-Con without Marvel doing a Hall H panel to showcase what lies ahead. As Phase 3 is winding down, it’s time to bring out the heavy hitters. Marvel already had a panel for Thor: Ragnarok where they unveiled the latest trailer for the movie. Secondly, there was a panel for Captain Marvel where they revealed that the film will take place in the 1990s with not only a two eyed Nick Fury, but also the Skrulls will make their MCU debut (“Secret Wars” for Phase 4’s conclusion: fingers crossed). Finally, they had a panel for Ant-Man and the Wasp where they revealed that Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne will be joining as Janet Van Dyne and Dr. Bill Foster (does this mean that we’re getting Black Goliath?!?). But of course, everyone is hyped for the heavy hitters: Black Panther and of course, Infinity War.

Promising a departure from the previous Thor films, Thor: Ragnarok promises to be a “buddy cop” action movie with heart and humor. We’ve already seen the first trailer and thanks to Led Zepplin, was an incredibly awesome. You couldn’t help but scream out “Yes” along with Thor Odinson as he ran into The Hulk in his full-on “Planet Hulk” attire.  The third Thor film is already off to a good start.

This being Comic-Con, and Thor: Ragnarok being on everyone’s radar, it makes perfect sense that the official trailer (the first one was a teaser trailer after all) today at Marvel’s Hall H panel. Boy did they not disappoint! (more…)

It’s been months since there’s been any substantial news regarding Captain Marvel, the first female solo film outta Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. But today, as one might have assumed they would, Marvel gave a little something something during their panel at San Diego Comic Con. And by a little something, we’re talking an unexpected (and legally confounding) alien race, as well an interesting timeline in the MCU.  (more…)

Ben Affleck Says He’s Not Going Anywhere RE: Batman

There were a lot of people looking forward to the goodies that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment were bringing to San Diego Comic Con in the form of news clips, trailers and announcements, but a cloud was cast over the festivities, and it was one the Bat-signal almost couldn’t break through. News reports yesterday indicated that Ben Affleck might be hanging up his cape and cowl at the end of Justice League after three appearances as the Dark Knight. It’s a good thing then that Affleck was on hand at Comic Con to refute this latest rumour mongering.  (more…)

Try not to get giddy. For people concerned about the rumblings: extensive reshoots, Joss Whedon stepping up for Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck leaving the franchise, prepare for a bit if cold water to refocus you on the idea that maybe everything’s going to turn out alright, at least so far as Justice League is concerned. At San Diego Comic Con, a few moments ago, a new, four-minute trailer for the film was screened, and you might actually be hard pressed to find any trace of the doom and gloom of previous entries in the DC Extended Universe(more…)

It’s hard to think go a more cinematic novel primed for a visual feast of a movie than Ready Player One. Ernest Cline‘s ode to gaming, nostalgia and possibly every pop culture reference from the 1980s has long been anticipated, and with none other than Steven Spielberg directing this is easily one of the biggest movies coming down the pipe in the next year. More than than, a legion of fans of Cline’s novel are eager to make sure that no one screws up the transfer, not even a master like Spielberg. So you tell us, has Spielberg screwed it up? (more…)

Warner Bros. Animation has revealed today at San Diego Comic Con their plans for three upcoming films to take place in the DC Animated Universe and one of them will be a two-parter! The first to come out of the studio will be a Batman film followed by a new rendition of the Death and Rebirth of Superman (split into two films). Fans may recall that DC Animated and Warner Bros. already tackled the Death of Superman in their 2007 adaptation, Superman: Doomsday, but left a lot out given the 75-minute limitation of the medium. Now, that story will be told in its entirety as two separate films.
