Doomsday Clock #1 Review

3 hours ago

This review is free of major spoilers.

Even though Dark Nights: Metal is currently unfolding, DC has decided to make a bold move by launching yet another event series in the form of Doomsday Clock. Sure, “event fatigue” is a very real thing, but when you factor in that the latest project coming to us by way of the all-star team-up that is Geoff Johns and Gary Frank, and that the last year and a half of Rebirth storytelling have led up to this, well, then I’ll most definitely welcome such a 12-issue series with open arms.

Oh yeah, there’s also the Watchmen factor.

That’s right, not only is Doomsday Clock blooming from the seeds planted in last year’s DC Universe: Rebirth one-shot, but it simultaneously serves as a sequel to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ immortal classic. Granted, some of you out there will call this sacrilege, »

8 Interesting Ways That Justice League Sets Up Future Dceu Movies

7 hours ago

Much was made in the run-up to Justice League that it would echo recent comics and offer something of a rebirth for the DC Extended Universe, moving the franchise away from the dour tones of Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and morphing it into a brighter, more optimistic future.

But what could the future of the Dceu consist of? Well, Justice League bears a lot of that on its back. By the end of the film, all six Leaguers have been moved into new positions on the board which could be picked up in later outings. Likewise, elements of much wider mythologies such as the New Gods mythos and the Green Lantern Corps are only briefly touched on here, ready to be picked up later down the road.

Granted, Justice League hasn’t been the barnstorming success that Warner Bros. were hoping for, and its »

Watch: Rick Looks To Make A Deal In Promo For Next Week’s Walking Dead

8 hours ago

The latest installment of The Walking Dead aired tonight and continued Rick and his allies’ all-out war against the Saviors.

Season 8, episode 6 was titled “Big Scary U” and finally reintroduced Negan, after we last saw him and Father Gabriel trapped in a shed surrounded by a horde of walkers back in the season premiere. Meanwhile, with the big bad currently out of action, the Saviours had to learn to function without their leader around to guide them and Gregory’s treachery was further explored as we got to see his underhanded alliance with Simon.

All in all, this was another great hour of television for the show, and the plot of season 8 is continuing to move along nicely, leaving us excited to see where things go from here. Speaking of which, we now have the first promo and sneak peek for next week’s installment, titled “The King, the Widow, »

New Avengers: Infinity War Promo Art Features Cap, Black Widow And Falcon

9 hours ago

As anticipation continues to mount for the very first Avengers: Infinity War trailer, which will apparently be here before the year’s end, fans are understandably eager for just about anything from the film that they can get their hands on. Unfortunately though, there hasn’t been much. At least, not in the way of official material. But what we have seen a bit of is promo art.

In fact, that’s exactly what we’ve got for you today, as a new piece has surfaced that shows off some of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in all their glory. Seen in the gallery below are Captain America, Black Widow and Falcon, with the first two sporting their new looks for the film. Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, meanwhile, appears mostly the same as the last time we saw him, but fans will no doubt appreciate getting a glimpse of the trio regardless. »

Disney Debuts Magical New Trailer For A Wrinkle In Time

9 hours ago

As expected, Disney has debuted a magical new trailer for their upcoming sci-fi/fantasy movie A Wrinkle In Time, which promises a grand, bold and visually stunning adventure, full of spectacle, wonder and fun for the whole family.

For those unfamiliar with the pic, A Wrinkle in Time stars a mighty impressive cast that includes Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Pena and Zach Galifianakis. The film is led by young actress Storm Reid (12 Years A Slave) though and directed by Ava DuVernay, who made history with Selma for being the first African-American woman to helm a movie with a budget of $100 million.

The upcoming blockbuster is based off the classic young adult novel of the same name written by Madeleine L’Engle, which was previously turned into a made-for-television film back in 2003. This is its first big screen adaptation, though, and if you’re curious to know more, »

Paul Rudd Shows Off His New Costume For Ant-Man And The Wasp

11 hours ago

Hope Van Dyne won’t be the only one sporting a revamped suit in Ant-Man and the Wasp, as a new video from HBO has brought us closer to Scott Lang’s new duds as they’ll appear in the 2018 sequel.

Production on Peyton Reed’s pint-sized actioner continues apace ahead of that all-important release date – July 6th for those keeping tabs – and over the weekend, HBO uploaded the above video from Night Of Too Many Stars that features Rudd in his new costume, giving us our best look at it yet. Retaining the same black/red color scheme as its predecessor, this is a much cleaner super-suit for Scott Lang, who gears up “alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.”

Those breadcrumbs will seemingly lead our miniature heroes on a quest to find Janet van Dyne, the original Wasp who slipped into »

Thor: Ragnarok Storms Past $700 Million Worldwide

11 hours ago

The good news just keeps coming for Marvel’s God of Thunder.

Buoyed by stellar reviews, not to mention that overly impressive debut overseas, Thor: Ragnarok is now well on its way to box office stardom. While initial forecasts claimed Taika Waititi’s threequel would open to $100 million on home turf, the pic far exceeded that and continues to impress, as we’re now learning that the film’s grand total has already soared past $700 million, with the current number sitting at $738 million.

It’ll only continue to climb higher, too, as not only is Thor: Ragnarok still pulling in strong numbers even several weeks after release, but Justice League has proven to be no match for it, opening with only $96 million on this side of the pond. So far, Waititi’s first effort for Marvel has had a spectacular debut by anyone’s standards, but the fact that the »
