The First Trailer For The Lego Batman Movie Is The Funniest You’ll See From Comic-Con

1 hour ago

After premiering in Hall H earlier today, Warner Bros. has finally released the first trailer for The Lego Batman Movie.

As expected, humour is very much the name of the game here, and this is definitely the most enjoyable and funny trailer to come out of the San Diego based event this year. While there are lots of jokes aimed comic book fans, the pint-sized Caped Crusader’s antics are great to watch regardless of how well you know of his adventures in the source material.

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The Lego Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – Lego Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure: The Lego Batman Movie. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, »

Logos For Each Member Of The Justice League Officially Revealed

1 hour ago

See Full Gallery Here

It’s fair to say that most fans expected something Justice League related at Comic-Con today, especially as the cast of the movie were all spotted arriving in San Diego yesterday! However, it’s never easy to predict what will happen, and the actors appearing on stage to answer a few questions could have easily been all Warner Bros. delivered instead of that amazing trailer.

Now, following that footage and group photo are six logos for each member of this superhero team.

That obviously includes Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller), and it’s fair to say that these are quite a bit better than the ones which were featured on Lex Luthor’s computer in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice back in March!

Black Panther Adds The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira As Lead Characters Are Revealed

2 hours ago

Black Panther doesn’t start shooting until early next year, but Marvel Studios doesn’t let something like that stop them from blowing the minds of comic book fans! During their Hall H panel earlier today, the studio revealed a key casting addition to the movie and announced who is playing who.

Captain America: Civil War star Chadwick Boseman appeared on stage alongside Black Panther director Ryan Coogler before Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige proceeded to bring out Michael B. Jordan (Creed), who will play Erik Killmonger; Lupita Nyong’o (The Jungle Book), taking the role of Nakia; and Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) as Okoye.

Killmonger is a classic Black Panther villain, while Okoye is thought to be the leader of T’Challa’s security force. Who exactly Nakia is remains to be seen, but a love interest seems likely.

That’s one hell of a cast, and more »

Peter Parker Battles The Vulture In New Spider-Man: Homecoming Concept Art

2 hours ago

Those lucky enough to be in Hall H today were treated to some early footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, and while there are no plans to release that online, Marvel Studios were at least kind enough to share a pretty spectacular piece of concept art for the highly anticipated reboot.

As you can see below, it features the iconic wall-crawler going toe to toe with The Vulture in an aerial battle. Some interesting changes have been made to the villain as his wings are much larger, he’s wearing a mask, and his feet (and body) are encased in an exoskeleton which is clearly going to make him more dangerous than ever before.

It’s certainly an upgrade on his quite silly comic book look anyway, but the fact that he’s wearing a mask obviously means we have no idea who’s under there. Rumours point to it being Michael Keaton, »

It’s Finally Official; Brie Larson Will Play Captain Marvel

2 hours ago

There have been rumours and speculation about who will play Captain Marvel for years now, though it eventually became clear that this was a role Marvel Studios would cast when they were good and ready. However, we never even got to see a shortlist because when the trades finally weighed in, it was made clear that Brie Larson was the frontrunner.

It’s not hard to see why Kevin Feige and company would be interested in her though. Fresh off an Oscar win for Room earlier this year, Larson will soon be seen in Kong: Skull Island (the first trailer for which can be seen by clicking here), a blockbuster which promises to raise her profile in a major way.

Well, at Comic-Con today, it was finally made official; the actress will indeed suit up as Captain Marvel. There’s no word on when that will be – previous reports have »

Human: Fall Flat Review

2 hours ago

Lately, it seems like more and more games are purposefully implementing fiddly controls as a central gameplay mechanic. Naturally, they need more than awkward movement to draw players in, so Octodad: The Dadliest Catch included an amusing story, Gang Beasts brought madcap fighting and Human: Fall Flat is about lead character Bob dealing with his recurring dreams of falling.

Before hitting play, I popped into the customization menu to give the 3D model of Bob a splash of color. I was able to be as artistic as I’d like here, and there’s even an option to use a webcam picture (for those wishing to see their face plastered across Bob’s whole person). A few splodges of paint later and I was rather attached to the little guy, ready to start his adventure.

Things kicked off with Bob freewheeling through the sky before unceremoniously landing on a floating world. »

Astonishing Trailers For New Seasons Of The Flash And Arrow Arrive

3 hours ago

Although The CW has given birth to its own veritable superhero universe, we must not forget that at the center are The Flash and Arrow. Trailers for both shows’ upcoming seasons premiered today at San Diego Comic-Con and featured a surprising amount of new footage, as opposed to being mere sizzle reels.

As we can see, The Flash will find itself in a much different place in its third season. According to Comic Book Resources, a year has passed since Barry Allen has started to live in the new timeline: he’s happy to have his parents back among the living, but those once closest to him are in somewhat different roles. Expect him to not get along with Joe West very well and to see Cisco Ramon as a man of affluence, who is, not surprisingly, a bit of a jerk.

Expect To See The Legion Of Doom On DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Season 2

4 hours ago

Saturday tends to be the day San Diego Comic-Con seems to bear the most fruit when it comes to news, and several tidbits that will excite comic book fans happen to pertain to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. It’s not a major leap of the imagination that a show focusing on a superhero team would see the arrival of not only another superhero team, but a club comprised of villains, but it’s still exciting to hear about nonetheless.

Let’s discuss villains first because, let’s be honest, news involving the bad guys is always nice to hear. It’s been confirmed that the Legion of Doom will factor into the show’s second season, but don’t expect to see a traditional lineup comprised of the likes of Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Scarecrow, Solomon Grundy and others.

Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim explained how they arrived at the decision »

Marvel Shows Of New Doctor Strange Trailer At Comic-Con

4 hours ago

This evening at Comic-Con, Marvel took to Hall H to show off a new trailer for their upcoming phase 3 film, Doctor Strange. Diving headfirst into the mystical side of the studio’s cinematic universe, the footage here focuses heavily on the more cosmic elements that will be at play in the film, showing us the titular hero learning about his new powers and trying to harness them.

It all looks very Inception-esque, and even the dramatic score playing over the trailer calls back to Christopher Nolan’s 2010 film. However, there still seems to be enough here to make this a complete game changer for comic book movies, one that will no doubt have great ramifications for the McU moving forward.

In addition to the magical/alternate realms stuff, the footage also gives us a few new looks at Mads Mikkelsen’s villain and »

Power Rangers Scribe Max Landis Writing Pepé Le Pew For Warner Bros.

5 hours ago

Amidst all the superhero trailers rolling out of Comic-Con today, you’d be forgiven for not being able to focus on anything else. That’d be a shame, though, as a ton of other exciting news has been emerging from San Diego this weekend, such as the fact that Power Rangers scribe Max Landis will be penning an animated Pepé Le Pew movie for Warner Bros.

Details are scarce at the moment, but apparently the scribe pitched the idea to the studio a while back and they immediately got on board. That’s not surprising, either, as Landis is a high in demand screenwriter and Pepé Le Pew is a Looney Tunes character with a lot of history, dating all the way back to 1945.

For those unfamiliar with him, though, Deadline describes Le Pew as such:

The character Pepe Le Pew is known for strolling around Paris in the springtime »

Things Get A Little Crazy In The First Trailer For Marvel And FX’s Legion

6 hours ago

It’s been a big day for superhero movie trailers from DC, but Marvel has now countered that with the first preview of upcoming FX TV series Legion. To say it looks unique would be an understatement, and while this trippy teaser doesn’t exactly make it clear what we should expect in terms of the story, it definitely promises a pretty fun time.

Set to debut in early 2017, Legion focuses on a troubled young man who may be more than human. It introduces the story of David Haller, who since he was a teenager, has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 & 2 Are Headed To Current-Gen Consoles Next Week

6 hours ago

In the wake of leaks earlier this month, Marvel has confirmed that they will be bringing Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. News of the re-release was confirmed by the company earlier today.

Originally released for last-gen consoles in 2006 and 2009, respectively, the two entries in the franchise will be bundled together as the Marvel Ultimate Alliance Bundle. It won’t be released on store shelves though and will only be made available digitally for the price of $59.99. For those that only want one of the games, you can grab either of them for $39.99.

Developed by Raven Software, the original Marvel Ultimate Alliance pitted Marvel’s greatest heroes against Dr. Doom and the Masters of Evil. Players can choose from more than 22 different characters, and build teams of up to four heroes at a time. Bonuses are doled out for building teams based »

Charlie Hunnam Stars In The Action-Packed First Trailer For King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

6 hours ago

After finding success with the Sherlock Holmes movies, the disappointing box office performance of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. must have come as a surprise to both Warner Bros. and Guy Ritchie. However, the filmmaker is now looking to launch a very different sort of franchise with King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.

The first trailer was revealed at Comic-Con earlier today, and it definitely looks like Ritchie will be bringing his trademark style to the movie, which has been envisioned as being the first chapter in a series which could run for as many as six instalments as it delves into the classic story like never before.

In King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, when the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern, Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. »

New York Is Thrown Into Chaos In Comic-Con Trailer For Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

7 hours ago

After showing it off to those lucky enough to be in Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con, Warner Bros. has released the brand new trailer for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. This one really puts an emphasis on both the action and magical creatures in the movie, though we also get a much better look at the villain (at least it seems that way) played by Colin Farrell.

In the movie, Eddie Redmayne stars as wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander, under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four Harry Potter outings. The screenplay, meanwhile, was penned by the author of the Harry Potter novels, J.K. Rowling, and her involvement definitely makes this movie feel more exciting than it otherwise might have.

According to the synopsis released by the studio, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed »

Warner Bros. Drops First Trailer For Kong: Skull Island At Comic-Con

9 hours ago

Warner Bros. has debuted the very first trailer for Kong: Skull Island today at Comic-Con. The upcoming reboot of the franchise is particularly exciting as it’s set to become part of a shared universe for the studio’s other monster films, like Godzilla. That won’t happen until much further down the road, but for this particular outing, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts looks to have one hell of an adventure in store for us.

Set in the 1970s, the film will find a group of explorers on an uncharted island where the titular beast resides, and what starts off as a “mission of discovery” ends up resulting in an “explosive war between monster and man.”

As the first footage in the trailer above proves, it definitely looks like Skull Island may venture into a bit of horror as well, with some eerie and chilling, Apocalypse Now-like vibes permeating throughout. »

Suicide Squad Gets An Extended Comic-Con Trailer

9 hours ago

Earlier today at San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. sent the crowd in Hall H into an absolute frenzy. Kicking things off with an unbelievable first trailer for Wonder Woman, the studio soon followed that up with our first look at Justice League. Then, as if all that wasn’t enough, they dropped yet another look at David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, giving us one last glimpse of the movie before it hits theatres in two weeks’ time.

Admittedly, at this point, it seems like we’ve seen almost too much of the film, so coming hot on the heels of the previews for Justice League and Wonder Woman, it is a bit underwhelming. I mean, do we really need yet another trailer for Suicide Squad? Don’t get me wrong, I think the DC Comics adaptation looks absolutely fantastic, but it’s been marketed to death at this point and »

Warner Bros. Releases New Justice League Group Shot And Trailer

10 hours ago

Warner Bros. released the very first trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League today during their San Diego Comic-Con panel. Accompanying the incredible looking footage was an epic new shot of the iconic heroes all assembled together, which can be viewed below.

But let’s circle back to that trailer because…..wow. We were already left mightily impressed by the first preview for Wonder Woman, which dropped just moments before, but this sizzle reel has seriously left our heads spinning. It might be light on action, but it does an excellent job of introducing us to the titular superhero team.

For starters, we’re really digging the lighter tone here, as it’s a very refreshing change of pace from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. We’d heard that Snyder would be injecting more humor into the film and from the footage in the trailer, it’s easy to »

Warner Bros. Releases First Wonder Woman Trailer At Comic-Con

10 hours ago

As expected, Warner Bros. has just released the very first trailer for Wonder Woman during their panel at San Diego Comic-Con, which is currently underway. At nearly 3 minutes in length, it’s an incredible look at the iconic hero’s upcoming solo film and should no doubt put to rest those fears that the Dceu may be in trouble, which stemmed from its shaky start with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, the film is set to dive into the origin story of the character, with the plot taking place during Wwi, where Diana Prince’s life is upended “when an American pilot crash lands and tells of the conflict happening in the outside world, which spurs her into action.”

Speaking in a recent interview about the character, star Gal Gadot had this to say:

“When Patty and I had our creative conversations about the character, »

Train To Busan Review

11 hours ago

Train To Busan is a perfect companion piece to Marc Forster’s World War Z (if you view it as parallel Korean chapter), except Yeon Sang-ho’s off-the-rails zombie ride is infinitely better in every respect. This isn’t just another two-hour South Korean zombie flick. This is an undead Snowpiercer that bastardizes humanity, engages in survivalist action, and establishes a doomsday scenario worth fearing. As an isolated Ktx train hurdles towards its final destination, we’re engulfed in an anarchistic nightmare that plays out inside the sealed silver bullet. Zombies gnash their teeth, patrons run for cover and humanity turns to shit once bodies start reanimating, in what could be one of the best zombie films to hit cinemas since…well…probably the last Korean zombie movie you saw.

As expected, we follow a train full of passengers who find themselves caught amidst a zombie apocalypse (an infection that »

Blindspot Star Joe Dinicol Will Play Ragman in Arrow Season 5

12 hours ago

The past couple of seasons of Arrow have received a mixed reaction from fans, and while it’s not as if the show is on the cusp of cancellation, it’s become clear that it needs to step up in a big way when it returns this October before we completely give up on it. Set to have a big appearance at Comic-Con this weekend, some casting news has leaked out just hours before the show’s panel takes place.

This one definitely points to The CW series getting something of a shake up, as Joe Dinicol (Blindspot) has been cast as relatively obscure character Rory Regan, a.k.a. Ragman. Another vigilante (in a season which looks set to be full of them), this version of the hero is described as follows:

“Fresh from a personal tragedy, Rory hopes to find answers in Star City, where he ultimately crosses »
