Superman Teaser

I have to admit that I got goosebumps when I saw the Superman teaser before The Dark Knight Rises the other day. Visually it looks like a Malick film (which should be interesting) and unlike the “bright” atmosphere that the last Superman and Green Lantern films had. It seems to be more in the vein of the Batman movies by Nolan. The cast is really solid. Zach Snyder is a very good director and he’s working with Christopher Nolan on this one… can’t  beat that.

If this tone and cinematography is what DC Comics has planned for their Justice League of America movie (rumored to be 2015) then it could be unbelievable.

Here’s the teaser (the voice-over is done by Kevin Costner who plays his human father who raises him):


Marvel Comics – Next Phase of Movies

The next set of movies coming out for Marvel looks solid.

First we have Iron Man 3:

It’s shaping up to be much better than Iron Man 2. The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley)  is confirmed to be the villain. That’s all I needed to hear. He is such a great actor and The Mandarin is Iron Man’s best villain period.

Next comes Thor: The Dark World

The Dark World is rumored to be referring to the realm of the Dark Elves. Does this mean that Thor will be up against Malekith the Accursed in addition to Wormwood, Bitterhand and Grendell? That would be awesome. Sign me up.

Next is Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The Winter Soldier refers to the return of Bucky Barnes (his body was also preserved by the cold) as a programmed Soviet assassin. The movie will also feature The Falcon played by Anthony Mackie (great casting). I’m interested how The Falcon will look and be brought “up to date”.

Last but not least is The Guardians of the Galaxy

Really looking forward to this one. It’s said to have the most recent roster of characters: Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Star Lord, Rocket Raccoon (who will no doubt be the fan favorite) and Gamora. Hopefully Adam Warlock will make an appearance with Thanos being involved in the main story. Here is the concept art for the cast:

This will all culminate with The Avengers 2. Will Thanos (possibly from The Guardinas movie) be the main enemy? Here’s hoping to that. Maybe an Infinity Gauntlet storyline? Awesome…

New Thor Trailer

Here is the second full length trailer for the upcoming Thor movie. I’m a little more impressed with this one. Some really nice stylistic shots (especially at 1:33 – the falling hammer toward the camera and at 1:57 where you see the shadows of Loki and Thor in the blast) with some better shots of Odin and Loki. Now I’m hoping that the new full length trailer for Captain America comes out soon…

Meet Captain America!

Chris Evans - Captain America


Chris Evans (Fantastic Four and Push) will play Captain America in the movie Captain America – The First Avenger coming out next year. He has signed on for 9 movies. Probably 3 Cap movies, 3 Avenger movies and some cameos in other Marvel movies. I think it was a good choice overall. He is a solid actor. One needs to keep in mind that he won’t play the kind of character that Johnny Storm was in the FF movie. Johnny Storm was always joking around and was a ladies man. Steve Rogers (Cap) is all about business and will step up to anyone, including Thor himself. I absolutely cannot wait for the trifecta of Marvel movies coming out in the next couple years: Thor, Captain America and culminating with The Avengers. I think they will be epic. There’s no other word for it.
