The day has finally come, some 14ish years in the making! I’ll be heading to see The Incredibles 2 after work! Can’t wait for this hugely anticipated sequel! Honestly, I hope it’s great!
I still remember seeing the original Incredibles in theaters. Great film! One of Pixar’s best, but you already knew that. I mostly just wanted to celebrate The Incredibles 2 on this nice Friday, and Honest Trailers is always good for a post!
We live in a dark world of comic book cancellations and abandonment. Many a wonderful little series has met the chopping block, cutting them short before they had a chance to thrive. Rare is the instance where we get nice things…but here we are! The Unstoppable Wasp, by writer Jeremy Whitley, is coming back!
From the sound of it, Whitley is picking up right where he left off with Nadia van Dyne and the Agents of G.I.R.L.!
How cool is this?! I loved Unstoppable Wasp! It was adorable, adorkable, very friendly and colorful, and Nadia is a really fun and charming lead character. I haven’t read much else with her in it, but Whitley’s Nadia is such a heartfelt character. She wasn’t just your average superhero. She was a bit off-kilter, but 100% heroic and confident. It was painful to lose this comic the first time.
But The Unstoppable Wasp is coming back in October! Art will be by Gurihiru, who I am not familiar with, but all this preview art looks pretty awesome, and perfect for the series. In the meantime, I’ll have to grab those Unstoppable Wasp tpbs on my Amazon wishlist and remind myself where things left off.
(Also, after I’d written up this article and prepared it to post, Marvel also announced that Sina Grace’s Iceman comic was coming back, too! That’s another comic I loved that was cancelled too soon! But I’m too lazy to rewrite this entire post to include both comics, so I’m just adding this addendum. No disrespect for Sina Grace or Iceman.)
The Incredibles 2 comes out this weekend and I am very, very excited! The first movie is one of my all-time favorite Disney movies and the sequel is long in coming. Me being the pop culture friendly blogger I am, I knew I needed to make a list that would coincide with the movie. How about famous comic book families? Just like the Incredibles!
Yeah, nah, that list would be comprised of the Fantastic Four and all the other famous comic book families that everybody already knows.
I could make a list full of characters and superhero families that everybody already knows, but where is the fun in that? I want some deeper cuts! Then Marvel announced the new Asgardians of the Galaxy comic, which features a character I barely knew about, but is a son taking up his father’s legacy. Boom! There’s my idea! Dash and Violet in The Incredibles are picking up their parents’ superhero legacy, so how about a list of comic book characters who also take up their parents’ superhero legacy? And lets have even more fun by adding the wrinkle of making them smaller, more obscure characters!
Any website in the world will tell you all about how the Flash’s kids also became super speedsters, or about Peter Parker’s various spider-kids. But here, I’m going to tell you all about the minor, forgotten legacy characters who nonetheless exist and are pretty awesome in their own right!
This list probably isn’t going to light up any search engines, but it’s my blog and I want to have dorky comic book fun! Join me after the jump!
Despite the pretty crummy last bunch of seasons of the Netflix Defenders show, I will never not be excited that a new season is coming. I’m that much of a Marvel fan. So yeah, I’m excited for Luke Cage season 2.
The trailer looks neat. I’m not super excited and I don’t anticipate much of anything, but you best believe I’m gonna watch the heck out of this season!
The show comes out on June 22.
A bunch more video game trailers came out of E3 this weekend, and I’m the sort of guy to share them all on a lazy Tuesday!
Like, how about Fallout 76?
Looks like fun! I’m always down for a new Fallout game. Word has it this is going to be some kind of multiplayer survival game. Not sure how that will change things with the normally single player series, but we’ll see. I’ll probably be down either way.
Then we got a trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, which will take place in Ancient Greece.
I love me some Ancient Greece…but really only the mythology. And I doubt the new assassin is going to fight the chimera or ride Pegasus. He’s probably just going to fight Templars, like normal.
Still, I very much enjoyed Assassin’s Creed: Origins, so I’ll probably give this one a shot as well.
There was also another trailer for Beyond Good and Evil 2!
Since I did go ahead and buy that Playstation 4, this game is on my radar again. I still don’t think it has anything to do with the original Beyond Good and Evil, but whatever. They can make any game they want and tangentially connect it to any previous game they want as far as I can. Just make it good!
Man, there were so many trailers I don’t have the time or energy to share them all. These are just the games I’m most interested in that I saw. There’s also a Resident Evil 2 remake, some new footage from that upcoming Spider-Man game, and there was even footage of The Last of Us 2 — though I didn’t watch that, because I have yet to play the first The Last of Us. It’s sitting on my desk right now, right next to my new Playstation 4. I’m building myself up for it.
