Ok, I didn't go to Comic Con in San Diego....someday! It's on my bucket list. But HUGE thank you to all the streaming sites who made Comic Con possible for those who had to sit at home. A lot to cover plus a few new things that happened during the week! So as the Joker says.....
Click the Superhero name to see the trailer (if you haven't by now...WHY?!) Along with them are some thoughts.
Aquaman – Thank Triton and the Ocean Gods we got this one. About time!
Shazam! – I was surprised this was released and damn it I’m thrilled.
Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald – meh, it’s the same trailer as before just with difference scenes. Ok…Nicolas Flamel appears, which was cool, but that was it!
Godzilla: King of the Monsters – not a huge fan of the franchise but the trailer was really great to watch!
DC Television Universe (aka The Superhero Shows on CW )- Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Legends, and Black Lightning all ready for bigger seasons as their trailers showed. One thing that was noticed was they didn’t really announce villains like they have in the past. A new approach to build suspense?
DC Universes' Titans - Released early but looking back, smart on DC and Warner Brothers end because the quote of Comic Con was....F-Batman!
Doctor Who! - This looks fun! First female doctor in the shows history. Looks like her color of choice for the sonic screw driver is yellow. Wonder if that is significant?
And probably one of the most exciting things to be announced. STAR WARS: CLONE WARS IS BACK!
The Best Interview From Comic Con Goes To...Kevin Smith!
He sat down with MTV to discuss a few things from his heart attack to directing a superhero film. It's a long one so grab a slice of pizza, a cold one, and relax!
R.I.P. TO THE D.C.E.U.
According to multiple sources, the DC Extended Universe has been renamed “The Worlds of DC” to better reflect its image in this vast movie world we live in. Some say this isn't true, but at Comic Con the signs were everywhere. Love it, hate it, or believe it, DC needed a fresh reboot of its own to separate itself from Marvel.
On a side note...the intro is actually freaking cool!
BATMAN ON BLU RAY!
It's happening! Pre-order Batman: The Animated Series on Blu Ray! The set will also include Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. It’s due out in October, go to Amazon now and pre-order!
It's Time For Daddy Issues
Robert De Niro is being groomed for the Joker film. Who is he going to portray? His father? His body guard? Or one of the goons that hires The Joker before the accident. Right now it looks like it's going to be his father. Hope it's not going to be disturbing like what The Dark Knight's Joker made his father out to be! See the full story here!
STUDIO WARS: The Shareholder Deal
Disney is basically 20th Century Fox's new mommy and daddy now. The board at 21st Century Fox approved the deal. Deadpool can now take on Thanos in the next Avengers film is he so chooses. Story here!
Game of Thrones…Is…Back?
Not until early 2019. JUST TELL US THE DATE DAMN IT! First the speculation was every episode was going to be two hours long. According to IGN guess that’s not so true anymore. Why?! WHY!
Also; the prequel series is in the works! Latest news from Superherohype.com is it'll start in 2019 (the production that is...not the show)
Holy Harry! A 6 THOUSAND piece Harry Potter Lego set is coming. Block off some weekend because you are going to be busy! Read the news here!
