Latest ‘Endgame’ Teaser Shows The Remaining Avengers Readying Themselves For The Final Fight (Trailer)

Did you see that latest trailer for the follow-up to “Avengers: Infinity Wars”… that “Endgame” joint? It came on during the Super Bowl. I am ready for this movie to jump off, after “Captain Marvel,” of course.

Harley Quinn Will ‘See You Soon’ Enough… In A New DC Movie In 2020 (Teaser Trailer)

Hard to argue against Margot Robbie being the breakout star of the all-star cast in the DC Universe’s flick “Suicide Squad.” Ready for an argument yet to come? How well will she hold up as the front-and-center star of her own DCU ‘chapter’ of sorts? Discuss.

This is the teasiest of teasers for “Birds of Prey” (due out in 2020).

Check out the official Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) trailer starring Margot Robbie!

It’s Summer, And Spider-Man Is “Far From Home” (Trailer)

Okay, watching this trailer should leave you with [at least] two takeaways: (1) Just when you don’t expect it, Nick Fury will come through, AND (2) Nick Fury came through, Peter… which is… Why. You. NEVER. Leave. Your. Spidey. Suit. At. Home!!

(Acceptable alternate takeaway: Auntie is super cute. Looks like she could make Happy reeeeally HAPPY. Haha!)

Young Justice, Season 3 Tease: Batman, Black Lightning, And Green Arrow Quit The Justice League (Video)

United Nations Secretary-General Lex Luthor???? Duuuuude!!!

And… and that was Black Lightning in there?? And did you SEE Green Arrow right there shoulder-to-shoulder with Batman in the clip (on even keel, finally acknowledging what the Arrowverse on The CW has done to SAVE the DC franchise at least in some way)?? Okay, DC Universe, NOW you are on the right track!

I have got some cartoon watching and RE-watching to do!

Whew! That’s a LOT of resignations. Gonna leave a mark, or hole, in the League. Who’s going to shoulder the load going forward? Who’s gonna take the weight? #YoungJustice #Outsiders

DC’s “Young Justice” Series Continues With Season 3… Finally (Trailer)

Don’t know how deep y’all go into the whole DC cartoon thing, but Cartoon Network had a good thing going with “Young Justice” (then dropped it). The series focused on the young’ns in the Justice League. You’d get dashes of Batman, Green Lantern corpsmen (plural, because Hal Jordan and John Stewart were on there) and others… but most of the time was spent on the likes of Nightwing, Aqualad, Artemis, and Connor Kent.

Sidebar: We REALLY don’t get enough Connor Kent in the DCU storylines. Hopefully, the coming “Titans” and “Young Justice” eps handle that problem.

Anyway, here’s a trailer for the long-awaited return of “Young Justice”. Out now on DC’s streaming service.

Actor/Director/Producer Kevin Smith Reviews ‘Aquaman’ (Video)

Aquaman is gonna make a billion dollars… go back in time and tell somebody that.

I know that’s right, Kevin. Who would have thunk it? Aquaman was the ‘joke’ hero back in the day, but now he’s the box office bank buster. Watch the clip above for a true comic/movie head’s insight.

DC Universe’s “Doom Patrol” Series Premieres February 15, 2019 (Trailer)

Wooowww! Ohhhhh, so that’s how they are doing it! See, DC Universe’s series “Titans” has everyone I remember on the ‘Teen Titans’ I remember from the comics I read… except Cyborg. I was thinking, “Since Cyborg was part of the ‘Justice League’ on the big screen he cannot just show up on a streaming series.”

Oh yes, he can. Plus, ‘Doom Patrol’ was an episode in “Titans” season 1. Bet your pockets there will be a crossover that puts Cy down with the ‘Titans’ at least temporarily. DOPE!

Watch the first teaser trailer for DC Universe’s “Doom Patrol,” starring Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor/Negative Man, Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele/Robotman, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg, and Timothy Dalton as Dr. Niles Caulder/The Chief.

New casting for ‘The Chief’ huh? Interesting.

“Aquaman” Debuted As The #1 Movie (Video)

Have you seen the latest DC movie “Aquaman” yet? Looks like DC is hitting the come-from-behind trail hard with this one. Here’s the last teaser for the movie that took the top spot this past weekend (according to Variety, see their take on the flick after the jump).

Loving the way they got the archnemesis Black Manta’s look just right (e.g. like we remember from back in the day, but modernized a just a touch).

Actor/Director/Producer Kevin Smith Explains Every Movie & TV Version Of Spider-Man Ever (Video)

YES! If you are one of those folks who just go to a Spidey movie just to enjoy a movie… then run into a ‘true believer’ who is deep-deep-DEEP into Spider-Man lore intent on over-talking you and ruining your viewing enjoyment of your Spider-Man experience, Kevin Smith has got your back. He is an action comic media uber-super fan who can (and will, above) give you enough knowledge to fend off that ‘real’ fan. Listen up and make whoever wants to call you a novice BOW DOWN to your fandom.

Kevin Smith takes us through the history of Spider-Man in film and television, from 1978’s “Spider-Man Strikes Back” to 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
– WIRED

…and then some! Plus, if you are a Kevin Smith fan: It is awesome to (1) see him back to full strength and looking great and (2) learn how Spider-Man influenced his career and life in several ways.

Now At Mid-Season, DC Universe’s Series “Titans” Is Really Good. Check Out Its Latest Teaser (Trailer)

Okay, so slide me a late-to-the-party pass. But I am glad I checked this out at all. It did NOT pass the eyeball test for me at first. Robin’s costume is cool, but everyone else had me thinking meehhh…

But this series is actually really good! I think DC Universe is still running it’s free week-long trial. Check it out for yourself. I got the trailer embedded above, but I think you need an entire episode to really get into it.

Hugh Jackman Remembers Stan Lee As ‘A Creative Genius’ (Video)

Man. Marvel’s Stan Lee was the man. Coolest ‘old dude’ ever – neck and neck with Hugh Hefner. Both were forever young, even in their 90s. Rest In Peace to one of the greats. Let’s let ‘Wolverine’ speak on it.

‘The Front Runner’ star Hugh Jackman remembers thinking his portrayal of Wolverine would make him the center of attention on the red carpet at Comic-Con. That was until the paparazzi abandoned him for Stan Lee.

“X-Men: Dark Phoenix” Hits Theaters Valentine’s Day 2019 (Trailer)

Surely comic book version purists were miffed at when the X-Men movie franchise messed with several storylines in the first trilogy (esp. in ‘The Last Stand’… Cain Marko aka Juggernaut is NOT a mutant). But this “Dark Phoenix” might, just might, try to steer in the direction of comic canon.

See, in ‘The Last Stand’ Jean Grey did all she could (with Professor X’s …um …help) to control the Dark Phoenix within. But we had no idea where the Phoenix came from. It was like Jean had a super-powered schizophrenic evil alter ego; one that was just there, that Xavier wouldn’t dare let Jean let out. Which likely left longtime ‘X-men’ readers yelling at the screen: HELLO! Phoenix is a COSMIC entity! Where’s the outer space part of the story!???!

Well, fingers crossed, the trailer above could be letting us know that they are going there. FINALLY! Saw a little bit of a space trip in there, but look and see if you see it, too.

(Plus, the teaser text after the jump. Really promising the good goods!)

So far, the ‘prequel’ and ‘alternate’ storyline movies (‘First Class,’ ‘Days Of Future Past,’ and ‘Apocalypse’) of the franchise have scaled up well as far as ‘popcorn effect’ goes… complex story arcs, conflicted characters, BIG explosions and massive destruction scenes from torn down cityscapes to ripped up ocean floors. And a plethora of X-Men are in play (most everyone but Wolverine, unless you count quick cameos). So whatever they choose to do with them and this story we can trust it’ll be epic, well worth the price of admission.

Of course, we will know that for sure by February of next year!

Comedy: Black Superman Vs. Hispanic Superman (Video)

Who knew that this Superman game got this deep, mane? Well, these two did obviously. Hilarious! They went there from jump (or should I say ‘leap’… as in ‘tall buildings in a single bound’… get it… anybody?).

It’s a head-to-head matchup between Rudy Mancuso & King Bach to see which Man of Steel reigns supreme.

The Strong Black Women Of Marvel’s Luke Cage (Video)

Mm mm mm! Lucky Luke Cage. That’s what they ought to call him in the series. Because in the show’s corner of the Marvel Universe, the women are CHOICE. Like Taster’s Choice. Like strong, sweet, Black coffee…

Yes, Black women are strong, but we also need space to be vulnerable.
Women who lead and love Marvel’s Luke Cage discuss turning their pain into power.
– Strong Black Lead

Oh, go binge Seasons 1 & 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage (on Netflix) if you just missed that whole ‘coffee’ reference. In short, it’s code wording between Luke and the women he is going to ‘blend’ (ha)!
