Yesterday, TheWrap reported that 20th Century Fox will no longer showcase its upcoming movie releases at Hall H at San-Diego Comic-Con this year. The main reason being that they feel as though they cannot prevent fans from recording what is exclusive video and sharing it on the Internet. I have to say I can’t be mad at 20th Century Fox for making this decision if TheWrap insider is to be believed. I always felt that exclusive SDCC movie footage should only be for those attending that panel. Those of usRead More

Each of the teasers are puzzle pieces that showcase some Marvel characters within them.

I’m certain another piece will come out later today or Saturday. I can honestly say I have no clue as to whatRead More

Finally, we have the official trailer for the upcoming DVD/Blu-Ray of Batman: The Killing Joke. For those who don’t know, this film is based off the elseworld story known as Batman: The Killing Joke. Fans love for this story made parts of it canon. Personally, I don’t like the Killing Joke for what it did to Barbara Gordon but at the same time we were able to get Barbara as Oracle. Which went for at least 20 years, maybe more? Correct me in the comments if I’m wrong. Enough backstory,Read More

Coming at you with a clip from the upcoming Captain American Civil War movie. We get to see Iron Man’s team attempting to take on Bucky Barnes himself in what looks like a fantastic fight scene. I have to say the clip stops right as T’Challa is about to give Bucky the biggest L of 2016. One of the things I love about the Russo brothers is that they have a sense of fight choreography in which everyone seems capable of fighting. Check it out down below. Like always commentRead More
