Justice League (Trailer #2)

Haaa! Batman threw out that line from “Kick Ass” on him: His power is that he is ‘rich as sh!t.’

Hey, in pulling together a band of superheroes to defend the Earth against an alien threat, that has gotta help, though. Because… better snacks and stuff, right? But, of course, this coming “Justice League” movie is the next all-in gamble for DC to balance some huge L’s (Green Lantern, and lackluster Batman vs. Superman, looking at y’all). So an epic trailer that hints at a more epic movie-watching experience is a must.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash – it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Okay. This will do. Enjoy the trailer. Salivate while you wait on the November big screen debut.

Marvel’s RiRi Williams Delivers On 3.14 (Pi Day 2017) [Video]

Not all heroes wear capes – but some carry tubes (Pi Day 2017)

They don’t make words for how dope this is. Get excited about higher education; esp. about the prospect of attending one of the United States’ most prestigious – M.I.T. They sent out the admissions decision letters on March 14th, or 3.14 (known as Pi Day, for reasons any who have/had any shot of getting into the pinnacle engineering school understand).

And before you non-nerds push a hand up and out and let out a “pssshhhtt, so what?” Recognize the levels of geek-ohol M.I.T. admissions poured into this years batch of Kool-Aid. Dude, Iron Man, dude! Well actually, they put together a 3-minute vignette featuring a Marvel character, an M.I.T. teen prodigy that built her own super suit and subbed for Iron Man when Tony Stark fell ill that time. The character, RiRi Williams (played by MIT student Ayomide F.), picks up a ‘special delivery’ in the video in her Iron Maiden suit. The special delivery? It’s a tube containing someone’s M.I.T. admission letter. Learn more about the backstory after watching the clip above by following the link below.

Deadpool 2 (Teaser Trailer)

Ryan Reynolds Tweeting and YouTubing about the “Deadpool” sequel is everything. But a Stan Lee cameo… in the trailer… EVERYTHING! “Shut up, Stan Lee!” Hahaa! But wait, see the billboard for the old theater across from the phone booth? “Logan” is playing (talk about timing). And Deadpool cracking a joke shot at Hugh Jackman near the end, while resting on a dead victim (talk about comedic timing).

Hold up. Back up. Dead victim? Wait what??

Yeah, watch this oh-so-wrong-but-just-right “Deadpool 2” teaser… several times for all the ‘Easter eggs’ in it (besides the ones we have already mentioned).

Marvel’s Iron Fist (Trailer)

Netflix is doing the MOST! Next up from its Marvel Universe promgramming: Iron Fist. Nice trailer to whet our appetites for the newest of Marvel’s team of Defenders.

Spider-Man: Homecoming (Trailer)

Oh yes sir, yes ma’am, yes yes y’all. Spidey is in the muh fuh king Marvel [Movie Franchise] Universe now! You saw the latest incarnation of the Marvel mainstay in “Captain America: Civil War” but now we get a look at young Parker web-slinging solo… well, at least in the title role. There is certain to be some cameo caramel (would you like some Iron Man Tony Stark with that?) to go with this popcorn-selling soon-to-be-classic! Peep the trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” above.

(Is…Is that Michael Keaton? Hey, DC. You lost your ‘Batman’ hahaaa!)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (Teaser Trailer)

Baahaaaha! Man, Dave Bautista is acting a fool in these clips. He could end up running away with the lion share of attention (and laughs) in this sure-bet blockbuster. Set for theatrical release late Spring (May) 2017, check out this latest dopest “Guardians of the Galaxy” (Vol. 2) flick.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 (Trailer)

They’re baaaack. I have actually grown to like the zanier movie cousins in the Marvel Universe family – Deadpool (okay, zany AND macabre), Ant-Man, and now this new Guardians Of The Galaxy. Dave Bautista & Chris Pratt are both a fool in this trailer; had me cracking up with over a hug. Baaahahaaa! “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” is due out in the Universe in 2017.

(At the end… aaaaw, look at Li’l Groot Root.)

Logan (Trailer)

Now THIS is how you go out, Hugh Jackman! If this “Logan” movie delivers like its trailer is teasing, the Marvel Universe is in for some of the best Wolverine watching to top off First Quarter 2017. Hope so. Jackman says this will be his last movie playing the iconic X-Men badass. Should be something to remember.

And what’s this? The Professor has brought a new gifted young’un to Logan to protect…and maybe train up? EPIC!

Wonder Woman (Comic-Con Trailer)

The official Comic-Con trailer for “Wonder Woman”, starring Gal Gadot, got dropped on nerds’ heads recently. Kinda reserved about it so far. “Batman vs. Superman” left some room for turning up for DC. But will “Suicide Squad” leave viewers like ‘WOW, great spinoff!’ or ‘Mehhh… rather see the Justice League flick’? Time will tell, but the trailer checks all the boxes for a comic book action hero war period piece that “Captain America: The First Avenger” did. So, can’t hate on DC for not trying hard.

Justice League (Special Comic-Con Trailer)

Stop right there. I’m in!
I need friends.

Agreed, Barry. We all need friends, even Arthur Curry. Haa! Another super-powered trailer tailor-made for Comic-Con. Looks like they are going with the bad azz Aqua-Man for this incarnation of “Justice League.” Big screen, big action. Not sure it ought to be Batman out there doing the ‘recruiting’ but this trailer still manages to tease a movie that looks like it has merit. Take a look.

If you like it, you only have to wait over a year for it to hit theaters in November 2017.

Doctor Strange (Trailer)

Lotta buzz over a lot of trailers dropped off at Comic Con, as is always the case. Don’t let this one slip by you. Marvel is already winning in theaters, but this trailer teases a comic storyline never brought to the big screen. “Doctor Strange” got a mention as a serious threat to Hydra in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but to seriously roll the dice and make a whole film on the Stephen Strange character?

Yeah. Marvel’s doing it… BIG!

Marvel’s Luke Cage (Teaser)

So your hero can take a punch? Our guy Cage… can take a bullet (a bunch of ’em… and a lot of punches)!

After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive who attempts to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But soon he is pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.

Suicide Squad (Final Trailer)

Okay.

So we have had a Blitz Trailer, International Trailer, Official Trailer, and we started with a mf’n Comic-Con Trailer for “Suicide Squad”… Message to DC movie-making powers that be… This better live up to the hype. Two years of “Superman v. Batman” build-up and many thought the movie was meh at best.

Wait ’til “Suicide Squad” though. That’s what we’re all thinking. And we are hoping it will be worth the wait. One final trailer. Come on August!

Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet (Issue #1) [Video]

Watch.

Now, did you get the ‘tingles’ when it was proclaimed that Wakanda is a nation that has NEVER been conquered?? An African nation that has NEVER BEEN CONQUERED! Yeah, that feeling… it’s called PRIDE! Black Panther’s first appearance in Marvel’s cinematic universe – in “Captain America: Civil War” – just happened. But the real happening is going to be the Black Panther movie (and yes, Chadwick Boseman plays the lead; like in the movie). Marvel is not playing with y’all. Too bad we have to wait two years.

But Marvel is serving us T’Challa fiends out here, and catching novices on the Wakandan nation up to speed, with its backstory info-series “Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet.” Issue #1 above.

(This video series features Atlantic columnist Ta-Nehisi Coates, author of the rebooted “Black Panther” comic book series.)
