From “Luke Cage” Villain Back To Big Screen Bad Guy: Mahershala Ali Features In “Alita: Battle Angel” (Trailer)

You didn’t think Mahershala Ali was done when Alfre Woodard’s character deaded ‘Copperhead’ in season 1 of Netflix’s Marvel series “Luke Cage”, did you? Nah man, Robert Rodriguez still has work for the brother; work that will debut in theaters December 21, 2018.

From visionary filmmakers James Cameron (AVATAR) and Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY), comes ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.

The End Of “Avengers: Infinity War” Explained (Video)

WARNING: Do NOT watch if you have not seen ‘Infinity War’ and do not want it spoiled!

Okay, Marvel usually licenses properties in 3’s, but there is a lot of grain and grist in the rumor mill saying there will be an ‘Avengers 4’… and bits & pieces viewers got by the movie’s end actually make that make sense.

Whoa. You’ve just come out of Avengers: Infinity War. You’ve cheered at all the fights. Laughed at all the jokes. You’ve been shaken, speechless and sobbing. You’ve made an appointment for therapy for tomorrow. Don’t worry…we’re all right there with you. There’s only one cure for the post-Infinity War blues, and that’s diving straight into the ending and trying to figure out what the hell just happened — and what the hell is going to happen next. Strap in, put your helmet on, and prepare your haunches, people. Here’s the ending of Avengers: Infinity War explained. And of course, gigantic, earth-shattering spoilers ahead. Last chance to turn back…

An Extended First Look At ‘The Death Of Superman’ Animated Movie (Trailer)

I remember buying my brother TWO copies of the ‘Death Of Superman’ bound volume comic when it came out decades ago. Not because I was thinking “collectors’ item… ka-CHING!” Nah, it was because I knew we’d be wearing that thang out reading it; and it was prudent to keep one ‘in the clip’ as a backup.

Epic story. Supes went out the one way he was supposed to… not withering from waves from a green glowing space rock… but from defending the earth, his home (Metropolis) from Doomsday… and falling dead on the battlefield with HONOR. The Super Scout and The Monster BEAT THE F**K OUT OF EACH OTHER!! A fight to the death!

And now DC is doing a movie about it… again. Remembering that they kind of screwed the Krypto with the Doomsday angle in the bloated Batman Vs. Superman movie they did, I’m just saying, “DC, do NOT screw this up!!”

Marvel Releases The Latest “Avengers: Infinity War” Teaser (Trailer)

HOOOOOLY SHEEEIT!!! Let’s go. Let’s. F**king. GOOOOOOO!

The latest trailer for “Avengers: Infinity War” though… Everything!! And EVERYONE in the Marvel Comics Universe throwing in in what looks like the ‘war to end all wars’ in the MCU.

SYFY Set To Tell The Story Of ‘The House Of El’ On “Krypton” (Trailer)

Okay, I’ll be there for this. Not an avid fan of SYFY series, but the channel has put out a couple of gems. Hope this one is good.

The legacy of the House of El is no longer safe. Brainiac is coming. Rao help us all.
Krypton premieres 3.21 on SYFY.

In particular, I want to see how the ‘House Of El’ will play out. Jor-El – father of Kal-El (aka Superman) – and most of the El ancestry is not known to us; which is good because that means there is a greatly-reduced chance of making fanboys and purists upset.

And there has been talk of the Kryptonian deity Rao on The CW series “Supergirl.” I’m interested in that story angle, too. Seeing as how Superman is pretty much a ‘god’ on Earth… what does a god’s god and religion ‘look like’ in this canon?

Of course, there is Brainiac. If they f**k that story arc up there will be consequences and repercussions!

Donald Glover Goes Where Only Billy Dee Williams Has Gone Before In This New “Star Wars” Story (Trailer)

Memorial Day release date. Doooope! Wonder why someone did not think of this before. Well, they probably did; which is why we get this movie gem in a few short months. “Solo” is a Star Wars Story that folks loyal to the canon NEED in their lives. Han Solo has been, at best, an ancillary character in the stories told as part of the SW franchise thus far. Why not put him front and center in a flick.

What’s great about this is that all the folks involved are likely attached for love of the story. Gotta imagine back when Harrison Ford was Han, he had no idea just how big these stories that happened long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away could get. But bet good money that Donald Glover (playing Lando Calrissian) knows.

We are NOT in ‘Atlanta’ anymore. Definitely. Ha! Enjoy the trailer.
