Awesome New Captain Marvel Trailer for Today!

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!



The First Captain Marvel Trailer is Damn Cool!

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.


Speaking of Movie Superheroes, Here’s Captain Marvel!

The first official look at Captain Marvel has arrived, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly! And actor Brie Larson looks pretty darn awesome on the magazine cover!

I like the look! Captain Marvel looks great! The EW article talks about the plot of the movie, with Carol Danvers fighting aliens both in space and back on Earth. Nick Fury and Coulson will guest star, and I’m kind of excited for more Ronan the Accuser. I think it’d be neat to see him doing something else beyond his psychotic zealot role in the first Guardians of the Galaxy.

Here’s a link to a couple of official pictures from the film, showing off the Skrulls and a couple more surprise characters! At least one surprise character, for sure.

Hooray, Captain Marvel!


Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/21/17

In my efforts to avoid the dark days that have befallen America, I’d like to focus on comic books today! It’s what I do every Saturday, but we could really, really use some heroic superheroes right now. Fortunately for us, we’ve got a nice smattering of comics.

Some are really good, like Nightwing, U.S. Avengers and more, while others are just OK, like Harley Quinn, Iron Man and a new Captain Marvel debut. And some are just a ton of fun, like this week’s Comic Book of the Week, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #11!

Check out the Power Rangers trapped in an alternate, dark reality!


Black Ranger means business

Meanwhile, The Clone Conspiracy finally gets good as writer Dan Slott delivers some actually, worthwhile character-based drama. Any Spider-Man story can instantly be made better by focusing on Otto and Anna Maria. Though this is also the issue where Ben Reilly goes full villain, so there’s that, too.

Comic Reviews: Harley Quinn #12, Invincible Iron Man #3, Mighty Captain Marvel #1, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #11, Mosaic #4, Nightwing #13 and U.S. Avengers #2.

Brie Larson is Captain Marvel!

The casting announcement we’ve all been waiting for was finally announced at Comic-Con Saturday night: Captain Marvel will be played by actor Brie Larson! Her movie won’t come out until 20-freakin’-19, but it’s still pretty cool to finally have the role cast. Hopefully we’ll see her cameo in an upcoming flick, like the first Infinity War movie.

The resemblance is uncanny!

Unfortunately, I don’t know very much about Brie Larson. I’ve never seen Room, so I only really know her from her small role in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which was a fine role, but probably doesn’t show off her acting chops very much. Still, I love Captain Marvel, so here’s to finally knowing this solid casting.

Now they just need to cast Ms. Marvel

Here’s hoping 2019 will get here soon rather than later…though I’ll be freakin’ 35-years-old by then. Jeez louise…
