‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’: Why Star-Lord’s Dad’s Identity Isn’t A Spoiler
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Ego banner

During last Saturday’s portion at the San Diego Comic-Con, all eyes were on Hall H as fans eagerly awaited to see superhero trailers and clips. Marvel certainly delivered, as they always do on the years they attend. One of the biggest surprises came from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which just completed principal photography a few weeks ago. Director James Gunn and the cast were all present to show some footage and a teaser trailer. The director recently confirmed that none of the SDCC exclusive footage would appear online anytime soon.

During the SDCC, the identity of Star-Lord’s father was confirmed, as was the actor who will be playing him. This set off a lot of fans, who felt that this information was “spoiler” for the upcoming sequel, but Gunn has stressed that it’s not. In fact, the character will be a major part of the film from start to finish, and that who he is is not meant to be some kind of shocking plot twist, but rather, it is part of the plot.

Gunn took to his Facebook page to explain the situation, and warn fans that they’d better get used to it, since the character and its actor is going to be all over the marketing material and will be part of all the promotions.

Get Ready! ‘The Rocketeer’ Gender and Race Bent Sequel In The Works
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Disney Plans Reboot Of The Rocketeer

In 2012, Disney announced that they were considering rebooting The Rocketeer. Released back in the 90s, the film was considered a box office flop, but has found a huge cult following since then. Joe Johnston’s film was truly one-of-a-kind, and honestly, looking past the CGI effects, it still olds up pretty well if you watch it today. In fact, you can say that this film helped inspire the Captain America: The First Avenger‘s tones, as both films were period pieces with our protagonists who defended America against the Nazis.

The then-new Disney chief Alan Horn was reportedly more focused on reviving older properties like The Muppets, making The Rocketeer the perfect movie to reboot. And now we are getting word that the studio is finally making progress on the reboot as they have hired Max Winkler and Matt Spicer to pen a “sequel reboot” – they’ll just come up with anything these days – entitled The Rockeeters. In addition to being a “sequel reboot,” the film will also have a “modern-day” twist. According to the same report, the film will be lead by a black female. More on the story below.

Apparel Review: Celebs Clothing’s Captain America Varsity Jacket
Waerloga69   |  @   |  

captain-america-varsity-jacket

You know, I don’t think anyone has ever sent me an article of clothing to review before. But I can’t say that anymore after this, because Celebs Clothing was gracious enough to send me one of their Captain America Varsity Jacket for my very own! How cool is that? I always like receiving gifts (who doesn’t?), but when it’s from someone I’ve never met, that’s particularly awesome!

To be completely honest, they actually sent me a list of different jackets from which to choose. Batman, Deadpool, Suicide Squad, Superman, and more! But I’ve always wanted some Cap merch so I went with the red, white, and blue!

Make sure to check out the pictures here below of the jacket I tried out.

OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY header

If it is December, chances are you will probably be invited to a Christmas Party to celebrate Yule Tides and Season’s Greetings. Of course, at these parties there’s bound to be some egg nog with a little alcoholic kick to it, which leads to some sort of drunken shenanigans, dumping one’s feelings over the office crush, and a nice hangover the next morning.

Now, a new comedy called Office Christmas Party will explore all those regrettable themes. The film stars Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, and Olivia Munn, and since this is a movie, things get seriously out of hand.

Check out the new trailer below.

Why ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ SDCC Footage Won’t Be Released
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 concept art image

More often than not, you will find people begging to see footage from the Saturday Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con, even more so if that footage is from Marvel Studios. Though studios are vigilant when it comes to leaked footage, by the time it is out there, it has already been viewed by the world. Some studios like FOX make the decision not to show up in order to prevent any leaks from happening. But seeing as Marvel owes a bit of gratitude for their success to SDCC, they have to show up. Now they were on hand to show us a tiny bit of footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, and even make an announcement for Black Panther. But much of the audience’s excitement came from Guardians part, which showed us a bit of footage in the form of a clip and teaser trailer.

The teaser trailer will probably be released in the near future, although it may be a bit more polished and have some additional footage by that time. However, the clip of Baby Groot helping Yondu and Rocket escape from their prison cell may not appear online at all until after the actual film is released. Director James Gunn actually explained why you probably won’t see the clip any time soon. Check out the video here below.

Planet of the Apes Header

Planet of the Apes (1968)
Director: Franklin J. Schaffner
Screenwriters: Rod Serling and Michael Wilson
Cast: Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter, Maurice Evans, James Whitmore, James Daly, Linda Harrison
Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 112 minutes
Release Date: April 3rd, 2016

If I told you I was seeing Planet of the Apes in theaters in 2016, you’d assume I was watching the third film in the new series starring Andy Serkis in motion capture technology as Caesar. Thanks to TCM and their Big Screen Classics promotion, the original 1968 classic is back in theaters for only one more day. It premiered on Sunday, July 24th, at several theaters throughout New York City, and I was there with my entire family, including my 5-year daughter.

Spider-Man: Homecoming title card

This past weekend, Marvel Studios hd something extra special to show their fans at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Aside from Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming made a very brief appearance to show Hall H attendees from exclusive footage (see our description of what was shown). Now, it’s very unlikely who were not in attendance will get to see this footage any time soon, but they’ll be able to get the entire film next year.

Here’s what we do know so far about the characters in director Jon Watts‘ Spider-Man film: Tom Holland is Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Zendaya plays Michelle, and the film will have a John Hughes vibe. But as for Tony Revolori, Jacob Batalon, and Laura Harrier, their characters have remained under wraps… until now. Check out who they play, and the connection their characters have to the Spider-Man lore here below.

‘The Flash’ Film Casts ‘Dope’s Kiersey Clemons As Iris West

Kiersey Clemons cast in The Flash

In the past few days, you may have heard about what Warner Bros has planned for the DCEU. That Justice League tease finally gave us a proper introduction to The Flash, played by Ezra Miller. As excited as we are for that team-up film, seeing Miller as Allen was a pure delight and has restored my confidence that the DCEU can stand side-by-side with their Marvel Studio competitors. While the Scarlet Speedster’s solo film, The Flash, which will be directed by Dope‘s Rick Famuyiwa, is still years away from release, we are getting a look at the diverse cast. A new report confirms that there will be a small reunion of sorts as Dope star Kiersey Clemons will play Iris West in the film.

More on the story below.
