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.

The New Doctor Who Teaser Teases Little

The new season of Doctor Who, starring Jodi Whittaker, arrives sometime this Fall. And the people at the BBC realized that the World Cup final would be a great place to debut the first real teaser for the new season! Unfortunately, the teaser doesn’t show much.

I suppose that’s fine for just being a teaser. We’re teased the Doctor doing stuff, we’re teased her smile, and we see her companions. Perhaps I’m just too eager for actual footage of Whittaker as the Doctor. And I can’t imagine I’m alone.

Still, like most fans, I’ll probably take whatever I can get.

Check Out Jodie Whittaker’s New Doctor Who Duds!

The Doctor Who outfit is a very important part of the character, not least of which because it’s going to be cosplayed like nobody’s business! So we’ve all been eagerly awaiting the fashion choices of the first female Doctor, as played by Jodie Whittaker!

Well here we go!

Doctor Thirteen Wardrobe

I don’t like it.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea of a female Doctor and Jodie Whittaker in the role. But suspenders over a T-shirt? With those high-waisted pants? Eehhhhhh. I’ve seen some people online mention that it looks like the sort of outfit a 2,000-year-old man with bad fashion sense who suddenly finds himself having to dress as a woman would put together, and I suppose that makes sense. But it could have been more stylish.

I dig the long coat, though.

Of course, I loved Peter Capaldi’s initial look, with the suit, the red insides and the Doc Martens, only for his Doctor who rarely ever wear that outfit. I never liked his weird dotted casual shirt.

So here’s hoping the 13th Doctor gets some options going forward!

Only Leigh Gets the New Doctor Just Right

Official Friend-of-the-Site Only Leigh is back with a fun little cartoon addressing the craziness of a female Doctor head-on! As usually, it’s funny and just plain fun.

If it needs to be repeated, I’m a huge fan of the choice of Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor. I think it’s great that the show is going with a female Doctor and I’m very much looking forward to her seasons.

Unfortunately, we’ve probably got an entire year of waiting before the new Doctor Who season starts. That Christmas special is not going to have enough Jodie, I bet.

My Thoughts on the New Doctor!

This is going to be a super spoiler for Doctor Who, so if you don’t want the Doctor’s new actor to be revealed, don’t watch the clip below and don’t read any further. They announced the new actor today to follow Peter Capaldi in this year’s Christmas special. You can watch the announcement video right here!

The 13th Doctor will be played by Jodie Whittaker, making her the first female incarnation of the Doctor in the show’s history. This isn’t too far-fetched. It has been clearly established that when Time Lords regenerate, they can change sex and race and pretty much everything else. Plus, a very vocal fanbase has been clamoring for a minority Doctor.

Personally, I am very pleased with this choice and excited for the new seasons. Whittaker was great in Attack the Block and everything else I’ve seen her in. I’m sure she’ll be great as the Doctor.

I wonder if they’ll give her a male companion!
