This is it: Every movie in the Marvel Studios line of superhero films has been leading up to Avengers: Infinity War, and the House of Ideas has finally dropped the first trailer promoting its ultimate achievement. If this movie tanks, all 18 films Marvel has put on the screen over the past 10 years will have been for nothing.
But from the looks of this trailer, AIW will not tank. In fact, it looks like the biggest, baddest superhero movie ever. It looks positively epic!
Not only do we get to see Peter Parker’s Spidey Sense make its franchise debut, we get a bearded Captain America, a blonde Black Widow, Thanos without his helmet, Doctor Strange, Loki wielding the Cosmic Cube… I mean, the Tesseract, the cool Black Panther — and those A-holes, the Guardians of the Galaxy!
STARGATE: ORIGINS is still some months away from its debut, but the first official set photos have been released, and Nerdist has shared the exclusive images with fans.
The 10-episode digital-only series will be a prequel to the 1994 theatrical film, the three TV series and handful of direct-to-DVD movies. Ellie Gall stars as Catherine Langford, the daughter of Professor Langford, played by Connor Trinneer (STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE). They are joined by new characters Beal (Philp Alexander) and Wasif (Shvan Aladdin). Also seen in the photos is series director Mercedes Bryce Morgan.
Reboots, relaunches and reimaginings are all the rage at Marvel and DC, each of which seems to change the origins, powers and even universes of its superheroes on a near-monthly basis. And now, DC Comics brings us something a little… different. Yes, it’s a reimagining of their core Trinity — Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman — but it’s going to be Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman as you’ve never seen them before.
Meet Milkman Man, Father Bruce and Wonder Wife, the Wholesome Trinity, courtesy of five one-shot issues from DC’s Young Animal imprint, beginning in January. In “Milk Wars,” DC’s regular Justice League and Doom Patrol take on strange doppelgangers created by RetCo, an interdimensional corporation that repackages reality by rewriting it as stories” for its clients.
Milkman Man is an even more upright, uptight version of Superman. Father Bruce has dedicated his life to orphans, while Wonder Wife is a Stepford Wives’ nightmare of a stereotypical 1950s housewife.
“Milk Wars,” which will last only about a month, kicks off with JLA/Doom Patrol Special #1, by Steve Orlando, Gerard Way, ACO, Magdalene Visaggio and Sonny Liew, which will be released on Jan. 31, 2018.
Thanks to the annual charity appeal Children in Need, the producers of DOCTOR WHO have in years past given fans advance looks at several Christmas Specials, and this year was no different. Today gave us a peek at “Twice Upon a Time,” the final story of Peter Capaldi‘s absolutely stellar run as the 12th Doctor and prelude to Jodie Whittaker‘s debut as the 13th.
In this unique regeneration story, the current Doctor encounters the First Doctor, as played by the brilliant David Bradley, who does an uncanny job of recreating the character as played by the wonderful original actor, William Hartnell, who sadly passed away in 1975.
In this all-too-brief snippet, the First Doctor realizes he’s talking to his future self… well, one them, at least:
Alert the Fashion Police! The 13th Doctor has a costume — and it will give her sixth persona’s notorious eyesore a run for its sartorial money!
Now, unlike Colin Baker‘s deliberately offensive multicolored suit, Jodie Whittaker‘s ensemble is not designed to assault the senses and offend the sensibilities — but it will take some getting used to. On the plus side, the newest Doctor’s threads do pay tribute to many of her previous selves and their… uh, questionable tastes.
It appears the newly regenerated Time Lady will be in a nostalgic mood, because the outfit she eventually puts together clearly pays tribute to just about all of her previous selves.
Let’s start with the T-shirt. While reminiscent of the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), its brown tint and colored-stripe pattern it immediately call to mind the endless scarf worn by Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor.
