The newest trailer for Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: Far From Home is now online and it contains quite a few major spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, which has now passed Titanic as the #2 largest movie of all time with $2.18 billion. After joining his friends on a European vacation, Peter Parker is thrust into a larger-than-life adventure alongside Nick Fury. It’s tough to get into anything deeper without going into spoiler territory, so watch the trailer at your own risk!
Starring a returning Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio, and Zendaya as “MJ.” The film co-stars Jacob Batalon as Ned, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill. Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters on July 2nd.
Conveniently answering the question that many of us had after yesterday’s reveal of a live-action Ghost Rider series for Hulu, Marvel Entertainment has confirmed that Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate) will reprise the role of Robbie Reyes, aka Ghost Rider, that he debuted in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. However, while Luna will be reprising the role, his Reyes will have no connection to the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. version of Reyes.
Ghost Rider, also known as Robbie Reyes, is consumed by hellfire and supernaturally bound to a demon. He lives on the Texas/Mexico border and when he unleashes the Rider, Robbie brings vengeance for the innocents he encounters, but struggles to control the power he wields

Laying the groundwork for much of the remainder of the year, DC Comics has some lofty plans as many of their biggest stories come to a head over the course of 2019. The truth of Leviathan and their rise to power has been fantastic, and it’s only going to get better from here. Then there’s Perpetua and the fall of the Source Wall, as Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom continue to hatch the craziest plan I have ever seen. It’s going to be a great year!
That was a wildly beautiful issue as the realization of where they were set in. When Hal realized the truth he instantly leapt into action, not letting anything to the entity inside his Power Ring. The entity that he loves and cares for so much. It was a beautiful way of showing just how important his position in the Green Lantern Corps is to him. Just how much it’s changed his life.
Oh man, this is ramping up so hard. Darksied is a member of this Universe’s Legion of Doom! Batman is given the choice to kill Superman to save the Multiverse, and he does it. Or does he? What’s interesting is that the World Forger mentioned the fact that both Batman and Superman have Fifth Dimension Imps… assigned to them. That’s a strange thought, and is interesting to think about.
This just exploded into a much larger story. The Gemworld battle is interesting, but the flashback to Tim Drake learning part of the truth… about the New 52, and Rebirth, and the lost 10 years of their lives. That’s what this is all about! Slowly but surely it’s all coming back! The memories, characters, and status quo from before! Man, this slow burn has been great, with more heroes slowly learning. But I’ve noticed that it’s always the sidekicks. Wally West, and now Tim Drake. It’s interesting.
After several months of being trapped in the basement of Arkham Asylum, subdued and injected with the most potent fear toxin on the planet, Batman has broken free and he is pissed. After laying absolute waste to a number of villains, even laughing while beating them down, he sends a message to Bane. He’s coming back with an army, and it should be so awesome to see this all play out.
It seems pretty random to me that DC would be releasing a zombie book in the summer. Albeit one based on the Anti-Life Equation, which is pretty genius. It’s not the most original idea (Marvel Zombies, anybody?) but it has the potential to be pretty fun if it’s done right. I just really hope that it’s done right.
By far, the largest and most epic of anything we’ve seen from War of the Realms up to this point, which is saying quite a bit. The Avengers were split into teams, with each one being given a particular task. Captain America and his team are tracking down Thor on Jotunheim, while Lady Freyja and her team secure the Black Bifrost. Then there’s Captain Marvel’s team whose job it is to just kick as much ass as possible. This is moving quick, and it’s awesome.
Beyond reason, The Punisher is the breakout character in the War of the Realms with his insight to war being valuable beyond belief to helping secure key points across the realms, and stop Malekith. This was yet another example of just that, and it was awesome.
Despite the upcoming launch of Disney+, it would seem that Marvel has not foregone the rest of the streaming world. Marvel Television has announced two new series, set to stream on Hulu. Both Ghost Rider, and Hellstrom, will be making their way to the service, with Runaways confirmed for a third season.
“We’re thrilled Hulu will be moving into a new—admittedly chilling—corner of the Marvel Universe with GHOST RIDER and HELLSTROM. Paul and Ingrid are crafting gripping adventures into fear that live in our SPIRITS OF VENGEANCE cornerstone,” said Marvel Television’s Joseph Loeb. Ghost Rider will follow Robbie Reyes, with Ingrid Escajeda serving as showrunner. Hellstrom refers to Daimon and Stana Hellstrom, who both made their debut back in 1973, thanks in part to the popularity of Ghost Rider. Paul Zbyszewski will serve as showrunner, with this being the live-action debuts of those characters. Currently no other details are available for the series yet, but expect to learn more in the future.

With production rumored to begin later this year, the cast of Marvel’s The Eternals continues to grow, this time adding Ma Dong-Seok (Train to Busan) in an undisclosed role, according to The Wrap. A gifted actor, that many in Korea believe to be the country’s answer to The Rock, he should add quite a bit of energy to a film that’s shaping up to be something special.
He joins Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani, all in unannounced roles. The Eternals is directed by Chloe Zhao, from a screenplay by Matt and Ryan Firpo.
The end of “Knightmares” has finally come with the truth behind all of this finally coming to light. An innovation on Scarecrow’s fear toxin has driven Bruce into his own mind, to face his own fears, and only his greatest fear can save him: the truth about himself. Maybe Batman truly isn’t capable of that type of love. The type that drives a relationship forward, allowing two people to give themselves to one another completely. It’s horribly tragic, but maybe it’s true. On top of that, Thomas Wayne really is there, working with Bane and claiming himself the true Batman, but how did he even get there? Still more questions remain.
I’m not sure what it is, but the mysteries in this book have me eating out of the palm of their hands. Naomi’s past is so interesting, even though we know next to nothing. Now, we know that Dee and her Father are warring aliens who decided to just have normal lives on Earth, and we know that there is certainly something different about Naomi herself. The mysterious black box, and what almost looked like a White Lantern logo? It couldn’t have been, given the small differences, but it is certainly inspired by that.
And the award for best retcon of all time goes to Scott Snyder and Justice League. With an effortless flick of his pen, Snyder has merged the entire history of the Crisis on Infinite Earths, and the Anti-Monitor, as well as his motivations and history into the modern age. We now know the true history of Perpetua and her children, and the life they cursed themselves to in order to stop her machinations. That was storytelling at its most masterful.
As expected, even after being eaten by his own Frost Giant Father, Loki still cannot die. Even being digested, quite grotesquely, I might add, in the gullet of Laufey, he just subconsciously will not give up despite his pleas otherwise. Knowing that Loki is indirectly responsible for the creation of the horrible Malekith that started the War of the Realms was quite the revelation. Now, we get to see what Loki does with that information.
That was a jam-packed issue that was full of everything you could possibly ask for. Insane action, revelations and character development galore, and even more insane action. Jane Foster is the All-Mother of Asgard, as Freyja leaves for Jotunheim to find Thor, and Odin falls into the Odinsleep to heal his wounds before leaving for Svartalfehim to destroy the Black Bifrost. This is absolutely fantastic, and easily the best even Marvel has had in some time.
It’s interesting to see the front-row seat that Punisher of all people has taken in this massive war. The anti-hero with the fewest powers taking on these otherworldly creatures of unspeakable horror is impressive, and that’s most likely why that choice was made. With that being said, the usual amount of gore and blood was at play here, and it was jarring in all the right ways given how Thor books usually can be.
This is how you know Marvel is taking the War of the Realms seriously, with these small tie-in stories that show just how many heroes are actually involved in this event. The Daredevil story was obviously the stand-out here, and I’m actually excited to see how the Man Without Fear got a hold of the sword of Heimdall, giving him god-like powers. The Wolverine and Punisher story was also pretty fantastic, but one has to wonder where all of the Avengers are?
In what is sure to be fantastic news for fans, LucasFilm head, Kathleen Kennedy, confirmed that the studio is working on a project based on the massive video game and subsequent tie-in, Knights of the Old Republic. Beginning life as a video game in 2003, KOTOR has since gone on to inspire countless novels and comic books. This will mark its first foray into live-action territory.
Unfortunately, Kennedy remained tight-lipped on further details, so we’re unsure if the property will be a film, or television series, though it’s certain it will debut on Disney+ in the future.
This is it. The final trailer for Avengers: Endgame has been released. With the film 10 days away, Marvel Studios opted to celebrate the long and incredible journey to get to this point. Marvel Studios has changed the landscape of cinema and pop culture forever with its 22-film journey, with no signs of slowing down in the future.
The trailer is light on new footage, but heavy on hype, with any fan that wasn’t yet excited (how?) sure to be after watching this montage. Avengers: Endgame tickets are on sale now, but moving fast, with the film releasing in theaters on April 26th.
The final piece of the puzzle from Star Wars Celebration in Chicago was the full unveiling of the upcoming Star Wars live-action series, the first ever created, titled The Mandalorian. Pedro Pascal (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) will star as a lone Mandalorian in the outer reaches of the galaxy, joined by Gina Carano (Deadpool) who plays Cara Dune, a former Rebel Shock Trooper, having trouble re-integrating herself into society, and Carl Weathers (Predator) as Greef, a man who heads a guild of bounty hunters that hires The Mandalorian for a specific job.
The Mandalorian is executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer. The live-action series will debut exclusively on Disney+ on November 12. Hit the jump to check out the first official photos from the series.
The Star Wars Celebration kept pumping out the announcements this past weekend, with the reveal of a new upcoming addition to the Star Wars video game universe, with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The game features an all-new character, Cal Kestis (played by Gotham’s Cameron Monaghan), a young Padawan who somehow managed to survive Order 66.
Players will meet Cal on Bracca, a brand-new Star Wars planet and one of several new locations introduced in the game. Cal is hiding from the Empire in plain sight but is forced to go on the run when he exposes his Force powers. Along the way, Cal will make new friends, like his mysterious companion Cere, as well as run into some familiar faces, all while being accompanied by his faithful droid BD-1. Cal’s flight from the Empire is made even more dangerous as he is being pursued by the Second Sister, one of the Empire’s elite Inquisitors, who seeks to hunt Cal down and extinguish this surviving Jedi. Assisting the Second Sister are the terrifying Purge Troopers, special Imperial forces trained to seek out Jedi and aid the Inquisitors in their dastardly work.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be released this year on November 15, 2019, for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
The Star Wars Celebration continues to keep on giving, as LucasFilm and Oculus have unveiled the first Star Wars VR Series, Vader Immortal. The game sees the player as a smuggler who is kidnapped by Vader’s forces and said to be a force user that he has been searching for. The one who can help him track down the “Bright Star.”
The series is in canon, and set between the events of Episode III and Episode IV, with the voice talents of Maya Rudolph as ZOE3, and Scott Lawrence as Darth Vader. The game will be out later this year, for the Oculus Rift.
After the lackluster box office performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story, it was only a matter of time until we got word of this, but Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that after the release Star Wars: Episode IX later this year, the series will be on hiatus. “We have not announced any specific plans for movies thereafter,” said Iger. “There are movies in development, but we have not announced them…We will take a pause, some time, and reset…Because the Skywalker saga comes to an end with this ninth movie. There will be other Stars Wars movies, but there will be a bit of a hiatus.”
While there are still new Star Wars movies in development from director Rian Johnson, and Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, they have not been officially announced, and have no timetable. The franchise will still be represented, however, with The Mandalorian releasing on Disney+ on November 12th, and Cassian Andor in 2021 on the streaming service.
