Dragonball Fighter Z Adds Trunks

dbz

Dragonball Fighter Z is getting a lot of attention since its reveal at E3, and for good reason. It’s been a while since Arc System Works has been in the news so frequently, but it’s a welcome sight with their incredible engine that seems tailor-made for a title such as this.

Even simple things like adding Future Trunks (that’s not simple, that’s awesome) makes headlines. On top of that, we also have confirmation that Dragonball Fighter Z is receiving a beta for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, before the game’s release in 2018.

Superman: Red Son Movie in Development?

redson

It looks like Warner Bros. might be a little more invested in these DC Entertainment films than we thought, as they’re also rumored to be interested in developing Elseworlds films, as well. Superman: Red Son is an alternate-universe tale in which Superman lands is Russia, and not Smallville. Taken in by the Kremlin, he becomes a symbol of fascism in a world-ruling government.

The rumor comes from Mark Millar himself, creator of Red Son, as well as Den of Geek, who claims to have sources within WB that are supposedly seeing a lot of interest in adapting the graphic novel. It’s a rumor, for sure, but the prospect of seeing Red Son in live-action, especially in today’s turbulent times, would be a geek dream come true.

New Death Note Character Poster for Ryuk

dn

Netflix has released the first of what I assume will be a few more character posters for the upcoming live-action English adaptation of the famed manga, Death Note. The first poster shows Ryuk, the shinigami that drops his Death Note to keep himself occupied out of boredom.

Written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who finds a supernatural notebook, realizing if the owner writes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Becoming infatuated with his newfound godlike-status, he sets off on a murderous spree to rid the world of crime and tyranny. Netflix is directed by Adam Wingard, and hits August 25th. Hit the jump to check out the new poster in full.

New Inhumans Poster & Premiere Date Revealed

Inhumans will premiere its first two-episodes in an IMAX limited engagement for two weeks on September 1st, and now we have our television premiere date, as well: September 29th, at 9PM EST.

DC Movie Output Rumored to Increase Dramatically

dc

Warner Bros.’ DC Entertainment film output has been spotty, at best. The films have been successful from a financial standpoint, but critically they’ve generally been flops, and many have been fraught with delays and mishaps. Now, with the success of Wonder Woman, things finally seem to be on track once again.

Aquaman is currently filming, and Warner is expected to increase their output of DC Entertainment films dramatically. The Flash, Black Adam, Shazam, Cyborg, Gotham City Sirens, and Suicide Squad 2 are all in the works, so we should expect some pretty big announcements soon.

A lot of people have been asking me ‘What’s the next movie in 2018?’ I know for a fact that DC is trying to get three to four movies made a year going forward. If I were you, I’d make sure I’d be inside Hall H this summer.

Ice Kirby Figure Revealed

Good Smile Company has revealed some fantastic news today, with the addition of a new Ice Kirby Nendoroid coming later this year. On top of that, they’re re-releasing the coveted classic Kirby Nendoroid, as well. The new Ice Kirby is a re-paint of the classic pink and includes an ice crown, ice breath, and ice effects for skating, as well as Kirby abilities like the umbrella for Parasol, the bandana for Fighter, and stars for the Star Bullet ability, which is apparently what it’s called when he spits out a star.

Good Smile also revealed that those who pre-order Ice Kirby through, them will also receive an Invincible Candy accessory. Ice Kirby will retail for roughly $43, while classic Kirby will retail for $40. Pre-orders for both will be open until August 10, and they are expected to be released this December. Hit the jump for pictures of the adorable figures.

Dragonball Runs Planned for September

Be prepared to despair, and throw a fit, and be very disappointed with the world. While North America is getting a Collector’s Edition of Metroid: Samus Returns, Europe will be enjoying the spoils of this newly announced Legacy Edition.

The version of the game includes the game, soundtrack, art-book, collector coin, morphball keychain, and a retro-inspired steelbook. Look at that steelbook! I would spend at least $80 on this edition. Metroid: Samus Returns releases on September 17.

New Comic Books: June 21

NEWCOMICS

This week was immensely short on new comics, but it made up for it with two fantastic titles that were both satisfying, heartbreaking, and shocking. One from each major publisher this week ensures it’s a pretty even race, and for once, I’m recommending a Marvel title for the week.

THOR

My book of the week is Mighty Thor #20, which sees the representatives of the Congress of Worlds, head to the land of dwarves, where light elf refugees have made home. This issue focuses heavily on Volstagg, for good reason. After a Muspelheim attack on the refugees leaves the team separated, Volstagg attempts to rescue some children, but gets lost. They get attacked, and before his very eyes, the flames of Muspelheim turn the kids to ash. The others find him, naked, and bathed in the only thing that can quell Muspelhaim flame: Fire Goblin blood. At the end of the issue, the Ultimate Mjolnir is shown, calling out to Volstagg, as he grabs it, and becomes the War Thor! Volstagg is the War Thor! I’m not sure why none of us saw this coming, but man, it was satisfying to see Volstagg get his due.

SUPERMAN

Another satisfying book this week, with the Manchester Black and the Elite arc coming to a close. Superboy defeats Black, and sends his consciousness into a cow, which is fantastic. Not only that, but we see Jon fly, and everything seems to actually work itself into a happy ending. Overall, this was a great throwback arc for the big blue boy scout, and I hope to see more like it in the future.
