There was so much information pouring out of SDCC14 this year that it was hard to keep up with even the big announcements let alone all the smaller sometimes much cooler things that people who attended the convention saw. In the next couple of days we’ll be picking up the pieces and bringing you some of those items that might have flown below your SDCC14 radar. First up is all those Marvel-ous props from Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. (more…)
We’re finally getting closer to a full trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Although physically battered and emotionally exhausted by her latest trip into The Hunger Games Arena, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is back in action and ready or not, has to be the face of the rebellion against District One. Hopefully the first full trailer will hit the Internet sometime early next week. Until then, you’ll have to scratch that Hunger Games itch with this teaser. (more…)
If it’s one thing that SDCC has been rife with, it’s footage from upcoming movies and television shows. One show that didn’t get left out is CW’s upcoming Flash series. They let loose with a promo spot that, while it has little to do with the actual plot of the series, is still a bit of fun none-the-less. Scroll on to check it out. (more…)
George Miller’s Justice League fell apart and he’s spent the majority of the last three decades working on dramas and kids films (to much acclaim, I might add), so when it was announced that he would return to the Max Max franchise that had sat rotting in the dessert since 1985, a little bit of doubt crept in. Could Miller re-find the magic after so much time away from the dessert wasteland? Could he sell Mad Max to a new audience that has grown accustomed to violent post-apocalyptic tales and would the old audience reject a continuation of the franchise without Mel Gibson?
After watching the official teaser trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road (embedded below), some of those questions are still without an answer (and new ones are posed, like might this be over the top?), but with regard to those worries about Miller, one thing is clear: never doubt a genius. (more…)
It’s an event that’s forever been in the making, doubly so since it was announced before last San Diego Comic Con, but Fox previewed the inevitable Simpsons/Family Guy crossover today at the event otherwise known as “Nerd Fest 2014.” Call it a cheap ploy for ratings, call it the last grasp of two once-great animated franchises, or call it the entertainment event of fall, but “The Simpsons Guy” is coming, and it’s the hour-long opening of season 13 of Family Guy. If you can’t wait though, a preview clip has been posted to the interwebs. (more…)
Love him or hate him, Mike Tyson is an American icon that has wormed his way into our culture and will likely stay there for centuries to come. This time around, he’ll be playing himself. Or rather he’ll be voicing himself on a new Adult Swim cartoon entitled Mike Tyson Mysteries. It’s basically like a bastard combination of Scooby Doo, The Venture Brothers and… well, just watch the trailer that they unveiled at SDCC for yourself and you’ll see. (more…)
Celebrities don’t always walk the San Diego Comic Con convention floor (for obvious reasons), but when they do, they do so incognito. Trotting around the exhibit floor in disguise, passing unsuspicious fans, some of which even ask to take a photo and being none the wiser. Can you imagine taking some goofy thumbs-up photo with what you thought was a fan like you in cosplay, only to find out later you stood mere inches from greatness. Missing the chance to engage and inquire with a celebrity whose work you’ve loved and been inspired by? Blasted! Either way you’re certainly left with a story to tell.
For SDCC 2014, we reveal Comic Con’s biggest celebrities who dared to dance amongst fans cunningly disguised by a mask. (more…)
Despite their own history with Star Wars, many fans bristled when it was revealed that Marvel Comics would take over the Star Wars comic book license from Dark Horse Comics. Debuting its first Star Wars book back in 1986, Dark Horse had solidified its brand and enhanced the Star Wars expanded universe over the course of almost three decades, but in the end, they suffered from one fatal flaw — they weren’t a part of the Disney family — and now we’re at a point where Star Wars fans have been waiting for some time to know what happens with the baton is passed.
Thanks to the Cup O’ Joe Marvel Comics panel at San Diego Comic Con today, we have a good idea and it seems that Star Wars is about to be put into the care of some very capable hands. (more…)
