Reviewing the Seven Biggest Comic-Con Trailers

24 July 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We all love movie trailers. Some of us get to the theater early so we can catch all the trailers. We review trailers. Studios even make trailers for trailers. (And we review those, too.) Trailers get people excited. That’s their job, if they’re done correctly. Comic-Con has unveiled a bunch of trailers over the past few days. Cinelinx is taking a second look at seven trailers for some of the most anticipated upcoming movies.

 Justice League: What’s immediately obvious from the trailer is that the tone of this film will be very different from the earlier Snyderverse films. When the WB opened the set to critics several weeks back, everyone present said that they were encouraged by the humorous scenes being filmed featuring the Flash. This trailer seems to back up those claims, focusing on the interactions of the team members. The thread of the trailer »

As part of its Comic-Con panel yesterday, Marvel showcased next year’s Sony co-production Spider-Man: Homecoming [watch the panel here], showing off the first footage from the film [read a description here], as well as debuting a piece of concept art featuring the web-slinger battling The Vulture [see here].

Now, to follow that up, we have the first official synopsis: it’s brief, and it gives nothing away…

The Marvel Studios Comic-Con panel confirmed that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be going up against The Vulture in next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and while we don’t yet know who’ll be playing the villain (although Michael Keaton is surely the strong favourite), we have got a piece of concept art giving us our first look at the character…

Never-before-seen footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming was screened to the crowd attending the Marvel Studios San Diego Comic-Con panel in Hall H, and, as has been assumed for weeks, it reportedly confirms that The Vulture will indeed be one of the film’s villains.

Captain America: The First Avenger Turns 5: All the Ways Chris Evans Has Changed Since His Superhero Debut

22 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Picture this: It's the year 2011, and Chris Evans is not an international superstar and widely agreed-upon hunk of the moment, but a kind-of-known actor and mildly-agreed-upon hunk. We speak, of course, of that mythical time before his very first Captain America. That original installment—or, to be more specific, the reboot—Captain America: The First Avenger premiered exactly five years ago today. And while that may not seem like a whole lot of time (because it isn't a whole lot of time), so much has changed for Chris Evans. And conversely, Chris Evans has changed a whole lot in the eyes of the world.  Back when he first readied himself to don the blue-and-white suit, »

First Look At Bronze Statue To Celebrate Seventy Five Years Of Captain America

20 July 2016 8:28 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

This year sees Captain America reach the 75 years milestone, and to celebrate Marvel has commissioned an awesome 13 foot bronze statue based on the McU version of the Star Spangled Avenger, complete with the quote “I’m just a kid of Brooklyn” from Captain America: The First Avenger (in the original Joe Kirby and Joe Simon comic Steve Rogers was born on the Lower East Side). Entertainment Weekly has our first look at the special anniversary gift, which will be unveiled at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, where fans can take their picture with it and buy their own miniature replicas. After making its debut at geek mecca, bronze Cap will travel East across the country before settling down for a short time in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. In September, it will move to the borough’s Barclay’s Centre, then heading to Sunset Park in October. »

It’s Time To Meet The Suicide Squad

19 July 2016 6:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems as though we’ve been talking about Suicide Squad for a very long time, and for good reason. Having DC supervillains forcibly banded together to work for the government under threat of death by explosive implant is a brilliant concept. In the source material, the original Suicide Squad first appeared in The Brave And The Bold #25 in 1959, and has popped up in various media numerous times over the years.

Now, however, the third film in the burgeoning DC Extended Universe is among the most highly anticipated of the year – thanks to early images of the cast and, in particular, of actor Jared Leto as a very different kind of Joker. But, it’s not just the stellar casting and stunning production design that makes Suicide Squad such an exciting film prospect. It’s also the very fact of who these characters are.

Dark Matter Season 2 Episode 3 Review: I've Seen the Other Side of You

15 July 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

If any of you were ever wondering what Two, Three, or Four were like before the amnesia, Dark Matter Season 2 Episode 3 hopefully answered some of your questions.

While the technical reasons that resulted in their reverse-amnesia didn't really make sense to me, I did appreciate this window into their pasts. Plus, it gave Five a real chance to shine.

Curiously, one of the first things that happened after the rather chilling cold open was Three walking in on Two attempting to drown her sorrows over the death of One.

Three: Those nanites of yours, they keep you from gettin' drunk, too?

Two: Yeah, I think they might.

Three: Well, guess there's a downside to everything, right?

Permalink: Well, guess there's a downside to everything, right? Added: July 15, 2016

This particular exchange is extremely reminiscent of the one between Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger after Steve's »

Sony’s Tom Rothman talks Spider-Man: Homecoming, new set photos revealed

12 July 2016 4:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As production continues on Spider-Man: Homecoming, IGN caught up with Sony chief Tom Rothman during the premiere of Ghostbusters, and managed to get a few words about the upcoming superhero reboot.

“We’re really, really fortunate on this because Marvel and Kevin Feige have really embraced the character, and nobody knows it as well as Marvel,” said Rothman. “It is another crown jewel of Sony’s for sure. [The title] is relevant to the story because it takes place in high school and there is a scene — that I guess I can give a little thing — at a homecoming dance. I’ve actually seen the dailies of it because we already did the high school shooting of it in the first couple weeks. It’s fantastic! But it’s also a homecoming to Marvel. And a homecoming to the cinematic universe that Spider-Man belongs in. So it’s a pretty unprecedented deal between two studios, »

Chinese Twitter account teases Warcraft sequel

11 July 2016 4:39 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Warcraft failed miserably at the U.S. box office, grossing just $24 million, the Duncan Jones-directed fantasy epic has performed rather well in China, helping to propel the film to a solid $430 million worldwide and making it the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time.

Universal and Legendary had franchise hopes for the movie (hence the Warcraft: The Beginning title in some markets), and it seems that the international box office may just help that to become a reality.

On the official Chinese Twitter account, a message has been posted which reads: “Warcraft’s theatrical run is coming to an end. But the chapter of a new decade has just begun. It’s a starting point, not an end point. We don’t say goodbye now because we’ll meet you again.”

Emily S. Whitten: Awesome Con Round-Up & A Look Ahead

10 July 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Con season has well and truly slid into gear now; with Awesome Con kicking things off a few weeks ago and Sdcc and NerdHQ fast approaching. Of course, con season is really year-round these days; but for me, it starts with Awesome Con and ends with New York Comic Con.

This year’s Awesome Con was, as usual, a great start to the season for me. What I like about the con is that despite only being four years old, it’s managed to integrate various fun aspects of different flavors of cons into a fairly seamless whole – meaning that if you aren’t there for one particular facet of the offerings, there are plenty of others to experience. Here were some of the highlights for me:

Awesome Con has consistently done well in getting big names to a young con. This year’s lineup included everyone »

When Sony and Marvel Studios first announced their joint custody of the Spider-man character, many believed it would just be a one-and-done project, with Sony grabbing the web-slinger back as soon as his good name was McU-rebooted.

But things changed.

Sony have now revealed they are looking to develop an entire Spider-Verse within the McU under Marvel’s creative guidance. This could signal the next phase in expanded universe continuities, ushering in the next phase of comic book storytelling…
