What a big week this has been for MARVEL at San Diego Comic-Con. After unleashing numerous looks at new series' coming to Netflix, and with Hasbro serving-up the first look at new action figures that include the first-ever toy likeness of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, the folks at MARVEL Studios have set free a new trailer for the latest entry into the ever-growing MARVEL Cinematic Universe, right along side a brand-new poster. Get a fresh look at MARVEL's DOCTOR STRANGE below! Indeed, things are gonna geting weird strange, and the whole family is gonna want to see this one in theaters this November, because the impossibilities are endless...
Power. Grace. Wisdom. Wonder. We have waited far too long for a WONDER WOMAN movie, but next year that wait comes to an end. Just-unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con, the first trailer for Warner Bros.' WONDER WOMAN is stellar - it quite literally gave me goosebumps... twice. If you've seen BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, you may recall the groovy music that signaled Wonder Woman's official entry into the DC Extended Universe, and that theme is here. From director Patty Jenkins, WONDER WOMAN starring Gal Gadot, blazes into theaters on June 2, 2017. Take a look at the trailer below!
The MARVEL Gods were shining upon San Diego Comic-Con last night, bringing forth so much goodness it could barely be contained. From the new Hasbro action figures featuring DOCTOR STRANGE and SPIDER-MAN to the first trailer for the Netflix Original Series, MARVEL's LUKE CAGE, it looked like a big night... but then it became a HUGE night. Also released were the first trailers for MARVEL's IRON FIST and MARVEL's THE DEFENDERS - a New York superhero team-up that features characters from all of the Netflix/MARVEL collaborations coming together as a team. Let's look at that one first - a teaser set to NIRVANA's "Come As You Are."
I've been singing the praises of the Netflix Original Series, VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER ever since I went behind the scenes at DreamWorks Animation back in early May. While it was pretty obvious from the get-go (Playmates Toys' new action figures won't be out until 2017), it's now 100% official that the second season of VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER will be hitting Netflix later this fall. At San Diego Comic-Con International this afternoon, executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery and writer Tim Hedrick made it official, while joined by surprise guest Steven Yeun (THE WALKING DEAD), who voices Keith the pilot of the red lion.
I'm completely digging this. With a soundtrack of Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" setting the tone, the trailer for the Netflix Original Series, MARVEL's LUKE CAGE is here, and Mike Colter is busting bad guys (and abusing cars) in the process. Spun-off of MARVEL's JESSICA JONES and eventually followed by MARVEL's IRON FIST (he's in this trailer), the small-screen connection to the MARVEL Cinematic Universe continues to build. Check out the trailer below (not kid-friendly!), and look for all episodes to begin streaming exclusively on Netflix, September 30, 2016.
When you think of Hot Wheels, you might not automatically think about the real-world physics and planning that goes into each car. Things get even more complicated when the project is a collaboration between icons, and that's been the case when it comes to Mattel and Lucasfilm working together on several lines of diecast vehicles with roots in a galaxy far, far away. After a massive success with the Hot Wheels STAR WARS Character Cars (see my checklist here) and Starships, now comes the launch of CARSHIPS (just-launched checklist here!) at Comic-Con International (SDCC). With a stellar Trench Run Exclusive being offered at SDCC, the Hot Wheels team is back in force, with a full-size, drivaeble 1:1 X-Wing Fighter Carship on display. This ride is inspired by the X-Wing Fighters of the classic STAR WARS Saga, but paired with a dragster to form a functional race car that can actually perform in real-life, while the Hot Wheels 1:64-scale version is one of the fastest Hot Wheels cars to date, able to "fly" down the Orange Track! Check out the new vehicle in action below, along with a behind-the-scenes video and gallery showcasing the build.
