Final Stranger Things 2 Trailer

Netflix has posted the final trailer for Stranger Things Season 2, and it is quite possibly one of the best trailers we’ve seen all year. With more clues about what to expect from the new, supposedly scarier season, and plenty of new footage.

Details on the second season have been incredibly scarce, but we won’t have to wait much longer. Stranger Things Season 2 hits on Netflix on October 27th.

First Trailer for The New Mutants

20th Century Fox has unveiled the first official trailer for Josh Boone’s surprising The New Mutants, marking the first horror foray for a Marvel film. The first trailer looks terrifying, and very much like a more cliche horror film at this point, with mention of mutants, but what appears to be few connections.

The New Mutants hits theaters on April 13th, 2018 in regular theaters, and IMAX. Said to be based on the fan-favorite Demon Bear Saga from the comic books.

Another shocking piece of news this afternoon as Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has tapped Marvel’s Runaways and Rememory scribe Mike Vukadinovich to re-write the screenplay for Beetlejuice 2.

Currently, Tim Burton and Michael Keaton are working together on Disney’s live-action adaptation of Dumbo, but both are said to be excited at the prospect of working together again, as attempts to get the project off the ground have been on and off for several years.

Gambit Releasing February 2019

20th Century Fox has shocked us all this afternoon with news that Gambit, starring Channing Tatum now has an official release date of February 14th, 2019, making it a perfect Valentine’s Day release, and totally not an attempt to replicate the success of Deadpool.

In the long awaited adaptation, Channing Tatum will play the titular cajun, with rumors that Lea Seydoux has been tapped as the female lead in the film. Recent rumors have director Gore Verbinski circling the director’s chair.

First New Mutants Trailer Tomorrow

FOX and director Josh Boone have announced that tomorrow at 12:01am PST, the first teaser trailer for the upcoming New Mutants film will be online. The film is expected to follow closely to the Demon Bear Saga from the comics, but aside from that, very little is known.

Boone has teased in the past that New Mutants will be more akin to a horror movie, than a traditional action piece that we’ve come to expect from comic book movies. What do you hope to see with the film?

New Doomsday Clock Trailer

DC Comics has shared a new trailer for the upcoming Doomsday Clock comic book event, written by Geoff Johns with art by Gary Frank. The first of the forthcoming 12-issue series. Doomsday Clock #1 hits shelves November 22, 2017 and the solicitation for the first issue offers only this cryptic description:  “You are not prepared for what lies ahead within these pages, good readers.”

The event mashes together the Universes of DC and Watchmen, revealing the mysterious Doctor Manhattan to be the true architect behind DC Rebirth, and The New 52.

FLASH
Honestly, this issue was a bit bland and didn’t do much in the way of furthering any sort of story aside from his relationship with Wally, and lack of relationship with his co-worker Kristen. However, the end is where things kicked into gear. Meena has finally revealed herself, in a black costume no less, to Barry. Suddenly, I’m interested in The Flash again.
DC
Tim Drake’s escape from Mr. Oz’ prison was a bit more anti-climactic than I expected it to be. He just hacked the computer and then left. The meat here is definitely all of the reveals about Tim’s future, or at least one possibility of it. And the possible introduction of Connor, now? Oh, man… things are really starting to heat up across the DC Universe as little by little, the status quo is both destroyed, and rebuilt, over and over again.

MM
The story, and the trap slowly begins to take shape in this issue, and just as the first two, it’s trippy and paranoid as all hell. What this team is doing with this character is incredible, and the trip that they’re taking us all on has been immensely gratifying. I only hope they’re able to close the trap well enough.
AC
Jor-El, or Mr. Oz as it were, is certainly playing dirty in this psychological war of sorts with Superman. His motivations are still so clouded, I’m just not sure what his end-game is. Does he want to save Superman, and Jonathan, or does he want to destroy them on some crazy death-world? On top of that, how does Mr. Oz connect to Doctor Manhattan’s plans with Doomsday Clock? Still so many questions.

WW
Diana mixed with Apokolips, mixed with Greek mythology makes for a truly engaging story. I’ve always preferred Wonder Woman stories with a touch of mythology, as she’s one of the few heroes you can mix those stories with beautifully, so it’s always a treat. Now I question if Diana finding her twin brother, Jason, is a ruse to lead the enemy there, or truly a reunion for Brother and Sister.
RM
A supernatural and demonic Ragman in the vein of Haunt is honestly exactly what I wanted, and I never even knew it. On top of that, this was a pretty great read, especially for spooky halloween-time, right now. Ragman doesn’t get a lot of love, but he’s a cool character, so it’s fun to see him getting his due here with his own solo series.

METAL
I am so completely and absolutely infatuated with how good Dark Knights: Metal is. This is the most ridiculous, and comprehensive comic book event I have ever seen with Scott Snyder pulling characters from the darkest of holes in the DC Universe. On top of that, Greg Capullo’s artwork has been some of the best of his career, with the world-weary heroes at the Oblivion Bar being so beautifully detailed, and obviously tired from battling an endless horde of evil. This is top-notch story-telling, and I’m so in love with it.
GL
What a tricky issue! There were a lot of interesting twists and turns here, but it’s still not quite explained what could be tricking Hal, if he is indeed being tricked, into thinking that Superman was Parallax. I just to have to also comment on how incredibly charming it was to see Superman and Hal interact with each other. Not even in a situation, just talking with each other, like old friends do. This looks like it will be another great arc for the Green Lantern Corps.

Nintendo Releases Mario Musical Trailer

Don’t get too excited. Nintendo isn’t releasing a musical Mario tour of sorts, but Super Mario Odyssey releases in just over two weeks, and the game’s musical impact has been vital to its success. With that in mind, Nintendo has released a new musical trailer, featuring the game’s theme song, “Jump Up, Super Star!”

Super Mario Odyssey releases on October 27, 2017 for Nintendo Switch.

Gohan Joins Dragon Ball Fighter Z

Bandai Namco has shared an epic, new character introduction trailer for Son Gohan in the highly-anticipated Dragon Ball Fighter Z that shows off new parts of his move-set while in his Cell Games form.

Dragon Ball Fighter Z releases in February 2018, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Tamagotchi Returning to Stores in America

Bandai has announced that the long-awaited return of the iconic pet-raising interactive toys, Tamagotchi, to North America is imminent. On November 5th, the toy will once hit store shelves across the country, retailing for $14.99.

I was never very good at raising Tamagotchi, though I killed it with my DigiVice. That all-white beauty above looks mighty tempting for a measly $14.99. I wonder if that’s how much they retailed for in 1997?

Overwatch 2017 Halloween Event Announced

Blizzard has officially unveiled this year’s Overwatch Halloween Terror event, as expected, and it looks like it’s going to be just as fun as last year. The return of Junkenstein brings back the wonderfully fun Brawl PvE mode, as well as tons of new goodies.

The internet is already freaking out over Widowmaker’s new Dragon skin, as well as Zenyatta’s Cthulhu skin. The event starts today, and ends November 1st!

The Shield Reunites on Raw

WWE has opted to bring back one of its greatest creations, as Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns reunited last night on Monday Night Raw. The group banded together to a raucous ovation to take down Miz, and The Bar, as well as taking down Braun Strowman later in the night.

It’s worth noting that The Shield is so popular, and so transcendent to the WWE Universe, that the crowd was even cheering, and following along with Roman Reigns, arguably the most hated personality in wrestling, today. The group even came out with a new t-shirt, which you can grab here.

Batman: The Animated Series Heads to Blu-Ray

At this weekend’s New York Comic-Con, Warner Bros. has announced that the legendary Batman: The Animated Series is headed to Blu-Ray in late 2018. There are currently no details on the set, but it’s expected to take on many of the same processes of the recent Mask of the Phantasm re-release.

The biggest question remaining will be whether or not the Blu-ray release will follow the strategy of coming out in a series of volumes, or as a complete series box-set.
