"The Black Panther lives!" Disney has unveiled a new 90-second TV trailer for Marvel's Black Panther, to promote tickets being on sale (buy them here) and build some buzz with a month left until this hits theaters. This looks so badass, it's one of my most anticipated of the entire year. Directed by Ryan Coogler (of Fruitvale Station, Creed), the story follows King T'Challa, once again played by Chadwick Boseman, who must defend his African nation of Wakanda from threats inside and out. The superb cast includes Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis as Klaw, Florence Kasumba, John Kani, and Sterling K. Brown. Love all the footage, I'm so ready to watch this and see how it all plays out. Let loose the Panther, Marvel!
"Even though he's the head a tribe, he's a hell of a lot more than that." Marvel Studios + Disney have just released a featurette video for Ryan Coogler's upcoming Black Panther movie, which hits theaters next month. This video focuses on Black Panther's comic book origins, featuring appearances by Kevin Feige and Stan Lee talking about the character, along with a few behind-the-scenes shots. Directed by Ryan Coogler (of Fruitvale Station, Creed), the story follows King T'Challa, once again played by Chadwick Boseman, who goes back to his African nation of Wakanda after the events of Civil War. The ensemble cast includes Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis as Klaw, Florence Kasumba, John Kani, Winston Duke, and Sterling K. Brown. This is probably the first big movie of 2018 that I am actually very excited to see.
"Do you want my body - on yours - forever? Well let's make those dreams come true." 20th Century Fox has released a new teaser trailer for Deadpool 2, this one straight from the halls of the Brazil Comic Con in Sao Paulo. The teaser basically just has Deadpool, as played by Ryan Reynolds, sitting in a chair talking about tattoos and Brazil and all kinds of funny stuff. This is the third teaser on top of the first two amusing teasers, the most recent being the wacky Bob Ross tribute (with a bit of real footage). The full cast includes Morena Baccarin, Josh Brolin, Brianna Hildebrand, T.J. Miller, Eddie Marsan, Zazie Beetz, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, Julian Dennison, and Stefan Kapicic. While I am looking forward to a full trailer, these teasers are pretty brilliant and they're good enough to hold me over for now. Do you agree?
It's time. Are you ready for this? Disney + Marvel have finally revealed the first official trailer for the Russo Brothers' most epic team-up movie yet - Avengers: Infinity War. Hitting theaters at the beginning of next summer, this unprecedented comic book movie brings together every single Marvel superhero we've seen so far - including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Panther, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, Pepper Potts, and so many others. This movie stars (everyone you know): Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Olsen, Tessa Thompson, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Josh Brolin, Sebastian Stan, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Dave Bautista, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Paul Bettany. This is our first official look at Infinity War and it's an emotional tease for this epic showdown. Take a look and let us know your first impression.
"I'm glad you could join me today." 20th Century Fox has debuted a hilarious new teaser trailer for the Deadpool sequel, currently known as just Deadpool 2, once again starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth. They're marketing for this sequel is as good as the first so far, and as things ramp up it only seems to be getting even better. This latest brilliant teaser is an example of that, an amusing mockery of Bob Ross that still delivers. Somewhere around the 1:40 mark, actual footage kicks in from the movie. The film's full cast includes Morena Baccarin, Josh Brolin, Brianna Hildebrand, T.J. Miller, Eddie Marsan, Zazie Beetz, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, Julian Dennison, and Stefan Kapicic. So this looks a bit darker and more thrilling than the first Deadpool, I'm fine with that. I'm sure there'll still be plenty of jokes.
Created by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby, Thor first appeared in 1962's comic Journey Into Mystery #83, a sci-fi anthology published by Marvel Comics. Based on the Norse deity of the same name, Thor is the God of Thunder and possesses Mjolnir, an enchanted hammer. A year later, Thor was included in The Avengers #1 as a founding member of the team, and the character has since appeared in every subsequent volume of the series. As a result, Thor has become one of Marvel's most popular and enduring superheroes, featured in countless comics, animated series, video games, and live-action films. Played by Chris Hemsworth, Thor has appeared in five Marvel Cinematic Universe movies - including Thor, The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and a cameo at the end of Doctor Strange. His latest cinematic outing, Thor: Ragnarok, looks to set a new standard for not just the Thor series, but the rest of the MCU as well.
There was a time where DC was all intense and dark, and Marvel was light and silly. Yet, over the years, Marvel got serious. And it was great. But a large part of me missed the silliness (and let's face it, we could all use a little silliness right now, if only for a couple of hours to escape the shitshow happening outside!). With Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok, that silliness is back by the space-ship load. Waititi sets the tone early and it's evident that, for that time you spend in the cinema, all will be well. Big, bold moments are set up and immediately torn down with a witty one-liner that takes the legs out from under you and, despite some pretty twisted content, you're never really worried because you know you're in very safe hands.
"My son, it is your time. You get to decide what kind of King you are going to be." Disney has revealed the full-length official trailer for Marvel's Black Panther movie, directed by the talented filmmaker Ryan Coogler (of Fruitvale Station, Creed), and it looks awesome. The story follows King T'Challa, once again played by Chadwick Boseman, who goes back to his African nation of Wakanda after the events of Civil War. There he encounters new enemies that want to challenge his seat on the throne, and destroy Wakanda. The outstanding ensemble cast includes Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Florence Kasumba, John Kani, Winston Duke, and Sterling K. Brown. This looks damn good. Yes it looks like another Marvel movie, but I dig the Coogler's style and boldness, seems a bit more unique than others. Check it out.
"The way that I've approached this is to rebuild it in a new way." With a few months left to go, Marvel has released a new behind-the-scenes preview for Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok, the latest Thor movie continuing the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This featurette shows us some making-of footage in addition to some interviews and clips from the movie. We've already seen two previous trailers, and an international one teasing a cameo, which should be enough to get you ready for this. Chris Hemsworth is back as Thor, with a kick ass cast: Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, plus all of the others from Asgard including Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, and Jaimie Alexander. Totally adore Taika Waititi so much, the best. Have fun.
"I sense a great change in your future." Disney has revealed a new international (Japanese) trailer for Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok, and while it features lots of footage we have seen before, there's a few new moments with some familiar faces from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (hint, hint). This trailer doesn't even try to hide it - it just starts out with Doctor Strange right away. There's also a few other teases in this, so fire it up to get a closer look. Chris Hemsworth is back as Thor, with a kick ass cast: Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, plus all of the others from Asgard including Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, and Jaimie Alexander. I'm still so, so excited for this. I'm just ready to watch already! Bring on Taika Waititi's Ragnarok mayhem.
"So much has happened since I last saw you! I lost my hammer…" Indeed, so much has happened! Let's find out! Disney + Marvel have revealed the new full-length trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, the next sequel in the Thor series, at Comic-Con today during their Hall H presentation. It looks like hiring Taika Waititi to direct this is one of the best decisions Marvel has ever made, as this looks seriously badass and entertaining in 100 different ways. Chris Hemsworth is back as Thor, with a seriously kick ass cast: Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, plus all of the others from Asgard before including Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, and Jaimie Alexander. I'm insanely excited for this, it looks so frickin' good, even all the sci-fi stuff looks like it works perfectly. I'm so there opening night. Between this and Black Panther, Marvel is lookin' really good.
Spider-Man finally swung home. Back in February of 2015, I wrote about why Spider-Man swinging back to Marvel Studios would be a good thing for the famed webslinger. Now, two years later, we have Spider-Man: Homecoming, the sixth Spider-Man film that actually feels like the first. The film, which stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Michael Keaton as The Vulture, is exhilarating, extremely well-made and most excitingly of all, refreshing. It shows how you properly reboot a character like Spider-Man, cementing Kevin Fiege and Marvel Studios as creative powerhouses who truly care about these characters. Let's take a look at why Homecoming was the perfect Spidey reboot - and what's in store for him after this.
