Comic-Con: 'Captain Marvel' Will Battle Skrulls In The '90s


There wasn't any footage of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel in the opening segments of Marvel's epic panel today at Comic-Con. But there was a ton of concept art, and a couple of key story points that we didn't know.

The first big one is that Captain Marvel will actually be a period piece set in the '90s. Kevin Feige broke the news, adding that this means everything takes place long before Tony Stark ever dons the Iron Man armor. It also means Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, who was confirmed to return, will have both of his eyes. I wonder if we'll see just how he lost it?

Maybe Fury loses his eye in a Skrull attack, because the alien shapeshifters will be the villains of the film. I think most of us thought the Skrulls would be covered as part of the Fantastic Four, thus under 20th Century Fox's control. But perhaps they are among the many characters with no clear ownership, sorta like Quicksilver.

Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden will direct Captain Marvel to hit theaters on March 8th 2019.


Comic-Con: Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne Join 'Ant-Man And The Wasp' As Two Key Heroes


Guess who's coming back to the world of superheroes? Michelle Pfeiffer, who played Catwoman years ago in Batman Returns, is now part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and she's joining as the original Wasp, Janet Van Dyne.


The Marvel panel began with a funny scene with Paul Rudd and Michael Pena recapping, in their own unique way (Robert Downey Jr. is always shown as Charlie Chaplin, Nick Fury is the David Hasselhoff version), the entire history of the MCU. And at the end, we see that they're actually talking to somebody, and it's Michelle Pfeiffer, who is then confirmed as Janet Van Dyne, the former wife of Michael Douglas' Henry Pym, the original Ant-man.


Marvel then confirmed that Laurence Fishburne will be playing Bill Foster aka Giant-Man/Black Goliath, who in the comics is a scientist on the par with Pym. He also would use the Pym Particles to become a superhero, but unfortunately died in the Civil War storyline. Fishburne currently plays Perry White in the DCEU, and will be seen in Justice League, so he's a popular guy with Marvel and DC right now.

Randall Park was also officially cast as Agent Jimmy Woo, Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, and Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch.

Ant-Man and The Wasp opens July 6th 2018.

Comic-Con: ‘Thor Ragnarok’ Official Trailer



I wasn’t a huge fan of the first two Thor films.  After all, Thor is a hard character from the comics to completely get right.  he does often talk is "this" and "thine" fashion throughout the comic.  Nevertheless, Chris Hemsworth has done a great job as the titular character in his solo films and the character completely shines in the Avengers films as well.  The third Thor film, Thor: Ragnarok directed by Taika Waititi, promises to be a “buddy cop” movie with The Hulk.  Cate Blanchett stars as Hela, the Goddess of Death who wants to destroy Asgard as well.  The first trailer was beyond awesome, featuring Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" just to get you excited.  Everything about the third movie promises to be a step in the right direction.

Today at San Diego Comic-Con during Marvel’s Hall H panel, the second trailer for Thor: Ragnarok was released:



One thing that’s surprising is how well they are getting the Hulk.  Not only is he now completely talking (I wonder how long until we get Grey Hulk (complete with all of Bruce Banner’s intelligence) in a future MCU movie.  Hela looks great.  Valkyrie looks great.  It looks like Thor doesn’t need his hammer to be the God of Thunder.  

Comic-Con: ‘The Flash’ Season 4 Trailer



When we last left The Flash, Barry had pretty much saved the day and stopped Savitar.  Unfortunately, the Speed Force still required a prisoner.  With Jay Garrick having already paid his penance, a new prisoner was needed.  Barry volunteered to go away to keep Central City safe.  Wally is due to step in and become the new Flash (if they follow the comics).  That doesn’t mean that the endless supply of evil metahumans won’t keep being evil metahumans.

Today at Comic-Con, the CW revealed a teaser for the upcoming season of The Flash:



Hopefully, they will let Wally be The Flash for a little while.  After all, in the comics, he was the scarlet speedster for quite some time.  Meanwhile, Team Flash needs to both move on from losing Barry (especially Iris) and at the same time, they have to keep Central City safe.  At the same time, if they can save him from the Speed Force (and not destroy the city at the same time), they will try to bring Barry back.

Comic Con: 'Star Trek: Discovery' Trailer Hints At Klingon War


Most know of Star Trek series and most have a favorite iteration. Whether it be the originial, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager or Enterprise everyone that is a fan holds one series or another close to their heart. Well now, there is another for fans to go crazy over featuring a new ship and a new crew but still embracing the same ideology of the originial series.

 

Star Trek: Discovery follows the Starfleet as they embark on their mission to search for new worlds, new lifeforms and a Starfleet officer on a personal mission of self-discovery.


The series is set to premier in the US on CBS All Access on September 24th following a broadcast premier on the CBS Television Network.'

Comic-Con: ‘Stranger Things’ Season Two Trailer Takes Us Back To The Upside-Down




Who doesn’t love Stranger Things?  The 1980’s nostalgia fuels sci-fi adventure Netflix released last year was a complete breath of fresh air.  The kids were awesome, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) was arguably one of the first badass female superheroes in our current age of superheroes, and the show did everything completely right.  It’s crazy to imagine that many networks turned down the Duffer Brothers for this show before Netflix gave them a chance.  With little advertising, Stranger Things became a pop culture phenomenon its opening weekend.  Of course, we are going to get a season two.

Everything’s not all better in Hawkins’ Indiana.  Eleven might have gone elsewhere, but Will still has whatever issues he has from his time in the Upside-Down, and it looks like we’ll be exploring that world much more in season two.  At their Hall H panel at Comic-Con, the Stranger Things season two trailer was released.



It looks like Will is the key this season as he now has a connection to the other dimension.  That doesn’t mean that Eleven isn’t going to be there.  Time will tell.  Stranger Things will hit Netflix October 27th, just in time for Halloween.

Comic-Con: "No Lanterns. No Kryptonian"- Watch The New 'Justice League' Trailer Now!


I say this every year, but I don't know how Marvel is going to top Warner Bros.' presentation here at Comic-Con. Simply awesome. And what put it over the top was the latest trailer for Justice League, which has some amazing new footage and reveals I wasn't expecting.

In it, we finally get a look at the villain Steppenwolf, who has the sheer audacity to set foot on the island of Thymiscira, the home of Wonder Woman and the Amazons.  But what's most interesting is what he, or presumably him, says..."No protectors. No Lanterns. No Kryptonian. This world will fall, just like the others."

It's basically our first legit reference to the existence of the Green Lantern Corps in the DCEU. I'm stoked. Are you? Watch the trailer and you will be. Call me crazy but I got hyped just seeing Jeremy Irons as Alfred again.

Justice League opens November 17th.

Comic-Con: 'The Flash' Movie Based On "Flashpoint"; Robin Part Of 'Batgirl' Movie


Who's breathless right now trying to keep up with everything Warner Bros. just dropped on our heads? I am, but they just gave us a huge update on their upcoming slate of DC Universe flicks.

The opening of the Justice League showed flashed all of the upcoming movies. In it were teases for Wonder Woman 2, Suicide Squad 2, Justice League Dark, The Batman, Shazam, Aquaman, Green Lantern Corps, and, surprisingly, The Flash: Flashpoint. It looks as if the The Flash will use the important "Flashpoint" storyline, which was recently used in the CW TV series. In it, Barry Allen caused a rift in the timestream that altered significant events and people, while he was the only one who knew. I'm sure we'll see some things changed for the movie, but it's probably still a long ways off as it doesn't have a director yet.

Also shown was a title card for Joss Whedon's Batgirl, and what some may have missed because of the wide panoramic view covering all of Hall H, is that it also featured Robin in the frame. So Batgirl and Robin both making their official DCEU debuts? Pretty cool, and I can't wait to learn more.

Noticeably missing from the list? Man of Steel 2 and Cyborg. I don't want to read too much into that but it seems Warner Bros. is still figuring things out with some of their characters

Comic Con: 'Ready Player One' Trailer Drops During The WB Panel in Hall H.


For those that don't know and I'm sure there might be a few, Ready Player One was the hugely successful novel from Ernest Cline. The story begins with with 18 year old Wade Watts as he begins his journey for an Easter Egg hidden in the OASIS by its eccentric creator James Halliday. Watts uses the OASIS as an escape from his hellish life in the Stacks, a slum in Columbus Ohio know as such because the entire park is essentially stacked trailers. Halliday has hidden three keys that unlock three gates within the OASIS that once collected will award the winner Halliday's entire fortune. All keys can be revealed by having an extensive knowledge of the 1980's, the decade Halliday grew up in. But while Watts and his companions he gains along the way get closer to the ultimate prize they are tailed relentlessly by the IOI, an organization dead bent on gaining control of Halliday's fortune and the OASIS itself.

The first report of the film had fans in a frenzy, salivating at the thought of seeing their favorite written word come to life on the big screen and who was attached to direct? None other than Steven Spielberg, the creator of many of the properties used in the story. The main issue most had was if the multiple licensed properties used within the story would be able to be included and how much the story would deviate from the original prose?

Well, I'm here to tell you, it looks..PHENOMENAL! With the look and feel of what I'm sure most pictured from Cline's original story and the inclusion of none other than the Iron Giant, I have a feeling the fans will not be disappointed. Directed by Steven Spielberg, Ready Player One will be in theaters March 30th, 2018.
