Full Trailer for Marvel's Badass 'Hit-Monkey' Animated Series on Hulu

Hit-Monkey Trailer

"Time to get bloody… Two dudes, two fates." Hulu has launched a full trailer for the new animated Hulu series called Hit-Monkey, another fairly unknown Marvel character getting his own show. It was initially conceived as part of a shared universe connecting to The Offenders, then it was decided it would be better as a stand-alone series. The teaser arrived a month ago, but this full trailer kicks WAYYY more ass than that first look. Doesn't even matter if he's an "obscure" character, I'm down for this. Marvel's Hit-Monkey series tells the tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin named Bryce (voiced by Jason Sudeikis), as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo underworld. The voice cast includes Olivia Munn, George Takei, Ally Maki, and Nobi Nakanishi. Uh yeah, this looks awesome! The animation looks good and the story seems fun, even though it's crazy dark and kinda weird. Bring it on.

New Making Of Featurette for Chloé Zhao's 'Eternals' Marvel Movie

Eternals Featurette

"It's not the typical place, it's not the typical shots, it's not the typical cast." Marvel Studios has debuted a brief new "making of" featurette for their fall movie Eternals, directed by Oscar-winner Chloe Zhao. We already featured the full trailer for Eternals just a few months ago, but with tickets on sale starting today, they're ramping up the marketing. This movie introduces us to a set of celestial superheroes - the saga of the "Eternals", a race of immortal beings who once lived on Earth and shaped its history and civilizations. They reunite again to protect humanity from their evil counterparts, the Deviants (Loki, anyone?). Eternals stars Angelina Jolie as Thena, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Gemma Chan as Sersi, plus Kit Harington and Barry Keoghan. This does look pretty dang good, I must say. Read an interview with Chloe Zhao on Fandango and book your tickets for opening week.

Badass First Look at Marvel's 'Hit-Monkey' Animated Series on Hulu

Hit-Monkey Trailer

"It's time to put an end to this monkey business." Hulu has revealed a first look teaser for a new animated series on Hulu called Hit-Monkey, another fairly unknown Marvel character getting his own show. It was initially conceived as part of a shared universe connecting to The Offenders, then it was decided it would be better as a stand-alone series. Hulu also recently debuted the M.O.D.O.K. animated series based on another obscure Marvel character. Marvel's Hit-Monkey series tells the tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin named Bryce (voiced by Jason Sudeikis), as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo underworld. The voice cast includes Olivia Munn, George Takei, Ally Maki, and Nobi Nakanishi. This actually looks damn good - at first glance it seems like a mashup between John Wick and Archer, but with a hitman monkey. As wacky as this all seems, I'm quite curious to give it a watch.

Official Trailer for Marvel's 'Hawkeye' Series with Renner & Steinfeld

Hawkeye Trailer

"When I wore this suit, I made a whole lot of enemies." Marvel has unveiled the first official trailer for the Hawkeye series, continuing with acclaimed TV shows connected to the MCU following "WandaVision" and "Loki" earlier this year. This one takes place in "post-blip New York City", following the former Avenger Clint Barton. His goal is to get back to his family for Christmas. But only with the help of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer with dreams of becoming a super hero. The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton's past threatens to derail far more than the festive spirit. Jeremy Renner returns to co-star with Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, and a fun cast including Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d'Arcy James, plus newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez. Along with the most adorable Golden Retriever, of course, who is playing "Lucky" from the comics. I really dig the holiday vibe of this, Marvel definitely knows how to craft an entertaining show that everyone be watching this fall.

"I've just been thinking about… how to fix all of this." And here we go! Sony Pictures has finally revealed the first official trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland after Homecoming and Far From Home. We have been waiting a very long time to see this trailer, with an opening currently scheduled for December in just a few months from now. Holland returns again as Peter Parker / Spidey, this time teaming up with Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange to undo his identity reveal, following the events of Far From Home and the "Loki" TV series on Disney+. And following the Into the Spider-Verse animated movie, which was first to open the doors to the Spidey Multiverse concept. The cast includes Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, J. B. Smoove, Martin Starr, J.K. Simmons, and rumors of appearances by former villains Jamie Foxx, Willem Dafoe, and Alfred Molina (who is in this trailer!). This is one exciting teaser, yowza. Tons of footage and introductions and tons going on in here.

"So this is what the end of the world looks… at least we have front row seats." Marvel Studios + Disney have revealed an epic full official trailer for their next big Marvel Studios movie due out later this year titled Eternals. This looks MASSIVE. Whoa.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage Trailer

"All I ever wanted in this world… is carnage." Who's hungry - it's time to meet the vicious red symbiote! Sony Pictures has released the second official trailer for the Marvel sequel titled Venom: Let There Be Carnage, aka just Venom 2. The first trailer for this dropped at the beginning of the summer, but with more VFX finished now we can get a much better look at Carnage vs Venom in this new trailer. Directed by Andy Serkis, this new sequel introduces us to the other fan-favorite villain. Woody Harrelson co-stars as Cletus Kasady, the serial killer who also becomes the host of an alien symbiote. Tom Hardy is back as Venom / Eddie Brock, along with Michelle Williams, Naomie Harris, Reid Scott, Stephen Graham, and Peggy Lu as Mrs. Chen. This looks way, way better than the first movie - fully embracing the absurdity of the alternate personality aspect of Venom + Eddie, along with the brutality of Carnage. Take a look below.

Review: Marvel's 'Black Widow' Spins a Web of Espionage & Intrigue

Black Widow Review

Co-created by Stan Lee, Don Rico & Don Heck, Black Widow made her first appearance in 1964's Tales of Suspense #52, published by Marvel Comics. Introduced as an antagonist for Iron Man, Natasha Romanova was a Russian spy who later defected to the United States, becoming an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a member of the Avengers. In 2010, the character (renamed Natasha Romanoff) made her film debut in John Favreau's Iron Man 2, played by Scarlett Johansson. She has since appeared in six Marvel movies, including 2019's Avengers: Endgame, in which she sacrificed herself so Hawkeye could retrieve the Soul Stone, saving her best friend — and all humankind — from the genocidal warlord Thanos. Now, Natasha is getting her own standalone adventure, a prequel exploring the fan-favorite character's origins in surprising & exciting ways.
