More SDCC Trailers Give Us Doctor Who and a Really Bad Ninja Turtles

I am just one man, blogging, while also at my day job. There’s a very good chance I won’t get to everything that comes out this weekend from San Diego Comic-Con. But I can post a new trailer like anybody’s business! And these are a bunch that arrived last night!

First up, a proper teaser trailer for the new season of Doctor Who, starring Jodie Whittaker. I like this much better than the quickie we got earlier in the week. We get some actual Doctor in this one, some real personality.

Next up is a story trailer for the Spider-Man game coming to Playstation 4 on Sept. 7. Now that I actually own a Playtation 4, I’m actually very excited about this game. So any new look at what we’re going to get is exciting.

Even if it still runs the risk of being a bad game. We’ll see.

Another trailer we got is a look at the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I quite enjoyed that cartoon, and I guess enough fans did as well that Disney is bringing it back for another batch of brand new episodes!

Anything that gives us more Ahsoka Tano is good news to me! Even if the ultimate Ahsoka/Darth Vader showdown already exists.

Finally, we got another look at that new Ninja Turtles cartoon, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This first look also provides a couple minutes of actual episode. And I can honestly say I won’t be having anything to do with this show. It looks terrible.

That’s not to say I’m one of those bitter fans complaining about how this new show is killing my childhood. Not at all. I’m simply recognizing that this show is not meant for me, and therefore I won’t take part. The animation, the comedy, the entire style of the show is just not for me. But I wish everybody involved the best of luck and I hope their take on the Turtles is successful.

Be sure to keep returning to my blog today as I dutifully attempt to upload all of the trailers and news that I either can or care about.



SDCC Kicks Off With Scary Dark Titans Trailer!

I am very excited for live action Robin on the new TV show Titans. So I’m also very excited to see this thing for myself. Well the first trailer has arrived to kick off San Diego Comic-Con, and it’s dark and brutal as all hell!

It’s like…how do we go for the complete opposite of Teen Titans Go! on every conceivable level? I think it’s a bold choice, and not one I’m very confident that DC can pull off.

But hey, it’s a serious, live action Robin, so you better believe I’m going to give it a chance! This sort of thing only comes around once in a generation! Hopefully DC doesn’t screw it up like they did with Chris O’Donnell.

Also in SDCC news from DC Comics, Grant Morrison is coming back to write a police procedural Green Lantern comic, and I near about blew my lid! That is, like, everything I could possibly want from Green Lantern comics. I’m really excited about this one!


Robin and Red Hood All But Confirmed for Batman: Arkham Knight

There’s no official confirmation as of yet, but based on a myriad of clues that have leaked online – or are on display right now at San Diego Comic-Con – we can almost be guaranteed that Robin and Red Hood will both be appearing in next year’s Batman: Arkham Knight! Red Hood will actually be playable too, according to information about a leaked DLC from Gamestop.

First clue is this video made of pictures from a toy booth at Comic-Con, showing off a Red Hood action figure and a Robin prototype figure. Robin, as Tim Drake, appeared in Arkham City, and was the star of his own follow-up DLC. So he’s a pretty major character. And I was hoping he’d be back in Arkham Knight. So that’s awesome.

Red Hood is probably Jason Todd. He’s got a pretty cool costume in the game.

If you don’t believe that video – or don’t have the time or energy to watch it, then check out these pictures.

Boom, Robin!

Believe my joy

And what was that about the Red Hood being a Gamestop exclusive? Boom! Eat that!

Curse you, Gamestop!

Neither of these is an official announcement, sure, but c’mon! Look at that evidence! This game just gets better and better. Now I just need to buy a better graphics card so I can get the PC version…which wouldn’t allow me to play the Red Hood DLC. Life is unfair.

Pinch Me, I’m in Love with the Ant-Man Movie Design!

We’d seen the test footage. We’ve read the comics. But for the very first time, Marvel has officially revealed the movie costume for Ant-Man! Behold this concept art unveiled at the San Diego Comic-Con!

I love it. I’m in love with it. It’s perfect! It’s everything I could ever want from an Ant-Man costume. I’m shaking, it’s that damn good. The mechanical look, the color scheme, the athletic design; this is gorgeous! I want this poster for my wall!

I can’t wait to see what kind of Ant-Man news they have at Comic-Con. I think I’m back to being more excited about Ant-Man┬áthan Avengers 2.

I Came, I Saw, I Conquered Boston Comic-Con!

I have returned to the blogowaves a champion, having successfully conquered the monstrous event known as Boston Comic-Con 2013!

If you’re just tuning in, I went to the Boston Comic-Con last weekend, my first visit to Beantown’s comic book convention. I’ve been going to conventions for a few years now, and Boston is my third locale after Baltimore and New York. I haven’t been to San Diego yet, mostly because I live in New York and am mostly broke all the time. It’s not cheap to fly out to California just to be stuck in a massive, unwavering crowd of comic book fans. Just sayin’.

I had an awesome trip. The Boston Comic-Con was smaller than New York, but was still a ton of fun. There were thousands of fans, many many costumes, and more geeky merchandise than I could buy in a lifetime. And seriously, I’d buy it all if I could. I’m that kind of insane. You can also read about the many reasons I love going to comic book conventions on a previous List of Six. They’re just so much fun!

Join me after the jump to hear my tale of Comic-Connery, and check out my awesome, homemade cosplay costume!
