eomer-2

Of the various Marvel things discussed this past weekend in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con, not much was said or revealed about Thor: Ragnarok. The simple reason is probably that the film just began production in Australia; we know all the cast members and it’s too early for finished film, so they just posted a fun little behind-the-scenes video in the vain of Taika Waititi’s vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows. Still, if you’re starving for Thor news, how about something from the style section. One cast member was required to get a new hairdo to get into character, and he shared the results with fans on your source for breaking news, Twitter. (more…)

Kurt Russell seems to be on our radar quite a bite lately, whether it’s starring in The Hateful Eight, having comics written about old characters of his, or joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Star-Lord’s father, the man is coming back to the public eye in a big way. Speaking of being Star-Lord’s father in Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, it was recently confirmed the actor would be Ego the Living Planet, which came as a surprise to many fans. Now we get to see just a bit of what will be on the screen later next year.  (more…)

If you’re completely unaware of what Mystery Science Theater 3000 is, well, shame on you. The show was created by Joel Hodgson in 1988, premiering on local Minneapolis UHF station, WUCW (then known as KTMA). MST3K’s entire focus was showing low budget, B-grade films in their entirety while three characters (Joel and two robots known as Tom Servo and Crow) mocked the movies relentlessly, their silhouettes taking up the bottom fourth of the screen. It wasn’t until the show moved to Comedy Central, however, that it became a cult success, running for six seasons until 1997. After that it went onto SyFy (well, The Sci-Fi Channel back then), running for three more seasons until 1999. After that second cancellation, he powers-that-be in the show’s creative went on with their lives, many of them moving on to form RiffTrax. Then, in 2015, creator Joel Hodgson started a Kickstarter campaign to revive the show a third time. Needless to say, it was extremely successful. Now, finally, we’re finally getting more details of the revival at Comic-con. (more…)

It’s going to be a long time till we see a new live-action Batman movie; 2020 or 2021 at the earliest, so it’s going to be up to The LEGO Batman Movie to tide us over. No problem because LEGO Batman was easily one of the best parts of The LEGO Movie, but can he stand on his own, in his own movie, in the shadow of Ben Affleck, Christian Bale and all the big screen Batmen who’ve come before. The answer you’re looking for, especially from the looks of this new trailer, is yes. Released at San Diego Comic Con yesterday, here’s the latest look at The LEGO Batman Movie. (more…)

If you’ve been following the upcoming Suicide Squad film, then you know there were a LOT of costume trails and errors to be had to come up with the perfect fit for one Harley Quinn. As we have seen, the ‘Daddy’s Little Monster’ baseball style tee and sequined daisy dukes, took the cake for the look they were trying to portray. Now, Warner Brothers has released behind-the-scenes footage that is over 9-minutes long and it reveals the classic jester costume! Costume designer, Kate Hawley had her own input for fans.  (more…)

Marvel Studios brought the house down at San Diego Comic Con as per usual (except for last year when they skipped). The excitement and anticipation was palpable, well, to the people the anyway. Everyone else had to live vicariously through Twitter and live blogs as Marvel presented for Black Panther, Thor Ragnarok, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Guardians of The Galaxy 2. The latter won the night. After Ravagers – including a fully costumed Michael Rooker as Yondu – took the stage, Marvel Studios showed the first footage for it. Fans went nuts. (more…)

Spidey homecoming

Today has been a bluster of news related to comic book movies, but one of the most anticipated projects from Marvel Studios is definitely Spider-Man: Homecoming; the film will continue the story of Tom Holland‘s take on the world’s most famous wall-crawler (after his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War). Today, in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, more details (some of which have been long rumored) about the film have finally come to light, and and the hype for Spider-Man is absolutely more real than ever.  (more…)

Although Captain Marvel is still without a director, Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and Nicole Perlman (Guardians of The Galaxy), are currently working on the script for her solo film. Marvel has always planned to have an actress lined up in case of an earlier appearance in a film such as the anticipated Avengers: Infinity War Part I.

A while back it was reported, Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson (United States of Tara, Community, Trainwreck) was in negotiations for the lead role. Now, thanks to an unveiling at San Diego Comic Con, it is 100% confirmed that Brie Larson is the one and only Captain Marvel(more…)

Marvel Studios had us scared there for a minute. As the presentation got underway in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con there came rumblings on the internet that those of us stuck at home would have to without seeing any of the goodies. And then a little while ago, the studio dropped a bomb known as the second trailer for Doctor Strange on us and all’s forgiven. If you thought the world of Strange was magically fantastical in trailer number one, you haven’t seen anything yet with trailer number two, which shows Strange in training and offers a look at the extent of the villainy he will face.
