Thank the universe that we live in a world where all Super Bowl ads show up online almost immediately, so that I don’t have to watch the Super Bowl to get my fix of Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel teaser spots.
Both are pretty good!
Captain Marvel comes out at the beginning of March and Avengers: Endgame comes out at the end of April. I like how the Endgame trailers aren’t revealing too much about the plot. Everybody gets together, there are some dire warnings and concerns, but we have no clue yet what’s actually going to happen. I like that.
Also, I think I’ve asked this before, but is anybody seeing the Captain Marvel trailers in front of movies? I go to the movies a lot, especially superhero movies, but I haven’t seen the Captain Marvel trailers play in front of anything. Not Aquaman. Not Into the Spider-Verse. What is going on? Why is nobody playing that trailer?
Holy guacamole, it’s another big week for comics! Not only were there a bunch of my favorite titles already, like Squirrel Girl and Go Go Power Rangers, but there were also a couple of brand new comics I wanted to try out, like Captain Marvel and Young Justice! So be prepared for plenty of reviews!
Comic Book of the Week goes to the final issue of Iceman, where writer Sina Grace goes all out in his second grand finale!
Meanwhile, I continue to fail at catching up to Jason Aaron’s Thor comic. I have a digital stack just waiting for me to read, but I can’t seem to bring myself to do it. I want to get caught up on Thor! I really do! But I’ve also got random YouTube to watch…
Comic Reviews: Captain Marvel #1, Go Go Power Rangers #16, The Green Lantern #3, Iceman #5, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #40, Uncanny X-Men #9, X-23 #8 and Young Justice #1.
A new Captain Marvel trailer hit the airwaves last night as part of some sports synergy thing. It’s not a full-on new trailer, but it’s packed full of new footage and some nifty new banter. Sounds like a good way to start a Tuesday to me.
Tickets are also now on sale if that’s your thing. I don’t normally buy movie tickets in advance because my local theater rarely sells out…but they do with Marvel movies these days. I had to watch Infinity War in the overflow theater. Not fun.
So perhaps I’ll buy my Marvel tickets early this year and get to the theater way ahead of everybody else, then claim the big, comfy, reclining theater seat that I want. Sounds like a plan! Captain Marvel comes out on March 8!
A new trailer for Captain Marvel graced the world last night, and it’s pretty great. Though honestly, I haven’t seen much of the first trailer. They didn’t even play it before Ralph Breaks the Internet in my theater.
This trailer’s got some great humor, some incredible action and a solid look at everything Captain Marvel might be. I’m down for all of it!
And I hope it gets played in more theaters! We’ve got a Spider-Man animated movie coming up, after all. And Aquaman!
At long last, our first proper look at the upcoming Captain Marvel movie is here, and it looks pretty awesome! It’s more of a teaser trailer than anything else, but the characters are established and the special effects look slick!
This is a good teaser trailer, as far as I’m concerned. Captain Marvel the character looks great in action, and the special effects of her powers look awesome, and the young Nick Fury totally plays. Here’s hoping for the best!
Also, how weird must it be for the general public that Marvel Studios is making a movie about a character named “Captain Marvel”? Obviously, comic nerds like we know the character’s long history, but the average movie goer who just enjoys the movies? “Marvel” itself is a recognizable name brand at this point. Do they think she was named after the movie studio?
Captain Marvel comes out on March 8.
