Black Lightning (First Look Series Trailer)

If you remember the B-rate “Black Vulcan” hero from the old, old Superfriends cartoon that used to come on in, like, the 1970s and 1980s… Don’t worry, this is NOT that. Not much cheese being teased in this DC series trailer. At all! Way to go DC. Looks like you folks are learning what Marvel / Netflix has to teach you about making small screen storytelling. Now, if the TV folks (esp. the producers of The Flash and Arrow) could pass some notes to the DC movie makers. Shot.

In fact, I wil go ahead as say it before you do: This trailer for DC’s newest forthcoming hero series – “Black Lightning” – looks and feels a LOT like some LukeCage-meets-Daredevil ‘ish. No shot, just saying.

(Oh, on that shot at DC movies, the first two ‘Superman’ movies were good (RIP Christopher Reeve), Michael Keaton ‘Batman’ vs. Jack Nicholson ‘Joker’ was groundbreaking, and ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy was dope. Respect due. Just that recent ‘Superman vs. Batman’ and ‘Suicide Squad’… at best, on a scale of wack to dope, they score a solid meeeehhh. Solid, but meh).

Marvel’s The Defenders (Series Trailer)

The full official trailer for “The Defenders” is here, and it is teasing a Netflix team-up series that is more badazz than any of the hero’s that comprise the team! Is that possible? Watch the trailer all the way down to that hallway fight where Luke, Jessica, Fist and Daredevil are kicking much azz and giving no damns about their names… Then YOU decide for yourself!

Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together. The Netflix original series will launch globally on August 18, 2017.
– Netflix

Not saying I don’t care what you think, but if you don’t think Marvel’s “The Defenders” is gonna be worthy, WE DON’T CARE! So.. haters can go binge ‘Scandal’ reruns or something.

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger (Series Trailer)

Good move for Marvel for 2018: Push further into TV. DC is doing it… very well… on The CW (Supergirl, The Flash, Legends Of Tomorrow, Arrow) and Fox (Gotham). Five shows to Marvel’s one-and-a-half (Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. with Legion counting as a ‘half’ for now).

And this trailer for Marvel’s “Cloak & Dagger” – set to debut on Freeform (formerly ABC Family). DOPE!

(Plus, Marvel is already RULING all on Netflix. Maaaan!)

Thor: Ragnarok (Teaser Trailer)

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
– Cinelinx

Rock’em sock’em on an intergalactic other-worldly level! But how in the Asgard did Hulk go from (literally) flying off into the sunset on the last Avengers movie to going the f**k off in the super-powered gladiator arena fighting Thor? No answers… yet. But an action packed teaser for the next Thor chapter… YES!

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.
– KinoCheck International

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).

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.
