Mazinger Z: INFINITY Headed to US Theaters

It’s been a good year for fans of Go Nagai, and his work. Devilman Crybaby released to much critical acclaim, and now Mazinger Z: INFINITY is headed to US theaters for a special limited release on February 11th and 12th.

The film takes place 12 years after Koji has taken down Dr. Hell, so it’ll be interesting how well it plays for newcomers to the series, as Mazinger has been largely absent from the anime scene for many years. If you’re interested, check out the official site to see if there are any showtimes near you.

Marvel Moving Forward with Black Widow Film

BW

After years of fan requests and outcry, Marvel Studios has announced it’s moving forward with a standalone Black Widow film, starring Scarlett Johannson. While still in the early stages, Variety has revealed that the studio has added screenwriter Jac Schaeffer, who will provide the script for the solo film about the Russian spy-turned-Avenger.

“Marvel President Kevin Feige met with several candidates before tapping Schaeffer,” according to Variety’s sources, “and Marvel execs met with Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a [Black Widow] writer.” This is some of the best news to come out of the Marvel camp in a while, and I’m excited for what’s to come.

Nintendo Releases Surprise Nintendo Direct Mini

Nintendo surprised the world this morning by launching a Nintendo Direct Mini this morning that came with plenty of fantastic surprises. For DLC, Super Mario Odyssey is getting Luigi’s Balloon World and a few new costumes. Pokken Tournament DX is receiving two new Battle Packs.

For new games, though, Nintendo brought out a few surprises. My personal favorite is the shocking re-release of The World Ends With You: Final Remix. They also announced Mario Tennis Aces, PayDay 2, Dark Souls: Remastered, and more. Check out the Direct Mini above for a full look.

New Comic Books: January 10

NEWCOMICS

AC
I’ll always be a fan of a story that involves Booster Gold. Particularly a story where Booster remains the “Greatest Hero No One Has Ever Heard Of.” He’s the hero that has saved the multiverse and the timestream countless times, yet remains a nobody, not only in the world of the comics, but in comics itself. Additionally, it looks as if Zod is taking over the next several issues of many books, with him not only in the next issue of Action Comics, but Green Lantern Corps, as well. Interesting…
WW
Another new villain origin story for Wonder Woman. With her surge in popularity, they’re certainly filling out her rogues gallery in quick fashion. The Silver Swan seems to be an interesting villain with a tragic backstory, but it should be fascinating to see what sort of abilities the nanites in her bloodstream give her. Fingers crossed that she’s another unique addition to the world of Diana Prince, because Wonder Woman could certainly use some more iconic villains aside from Ares, and Cheetah.
FLASH
The fight between Flash and Captain Cold to open the issue was brutal, but they should have stretched it just a bit further. Little by little, things seem to be getting back to the status quo that we all know and love about the Flash. His relationship with Iris, and the hopeful nature of his character, and supporting cast. It’s been a dark last several months for Barry Allen, but it’s good to see his redemption coming to fruition.
MM
I’m not sure what it is, but first there was the charming issue of Batman with Superman, and their pre-marital squabbles. Now, this issue of Mister Miracle shows long-time couple Scott Free and Big Barda discussing their future while effortlessly dispatching much of New Genesis. It was a light-hearted and fun read, while the two New Gods eviscerated their own in an attempt to reach Orion, and it just further solidifed the notion that this book is fantastic.DM
I cannot overstate just now bat-shit crazy Neal Adams has become. He was always known for his over the top story telling, but these days his stories are just getting hard to follow. This book, while completely engaging and most certainly a Deadman story, is bonkers. Things are starting to come together in a way that actually makes sense, which is honestly the scariest part. One last note: the Spectre acting as a sidekick to Deadman in all of this is brilliant.
HJ
Apparently it is a week of restoration for the status quo of classic DC characters, as the Guardians of the Universe have restored themselves to power, dedicating the remainder of their lives to the legacy that they have created in the Green Lantern Corps. It was a pretty amazing moment to see the Guardians in their robes once again, particularly with another old threat, the Darkstars, now looming under the control of the… well, the Controllers.

 

First Teen Titans GO! To The Movies Trailer

Warner Bros. Animation has released the first official trailer for the upcoming animated feature, Teen Titans GO! To The Movies, and it’s clearly going to be a hilarious shakedown of superhero film culture, that is way too meta. After the team jokes that no one wants to see them, they just want to see Wonder Woman, they then follow up with a joke about Aquaman getting a film, as well.

This is definitely going to be one to watch, as it’s quite a surprise for the year. Hopefully it remains a pleasant one.
