I have to say, I was really happy with this 6 minute look at the new Supergirl series! She seem strong yet a little bumbling, as is the Super way;). It also seems as if it is going to be kid friendly so you can just imagine how happy that makes all the Nerdlings too!  The biggest surprise was Calista Flockhart being in the cast as her boss! I was also a little surprised to Jeremy Jordan too. I must have just missed that announcement.

What did you think of the first look? Do you think this will be a hit or miss?

 

1 Month Until Daredevil and a New Trailer

It is only 1 month until the Daredevil series premieres on Netflix! They released a new Daredevil trailer on the Netflix Youtube channel. It seems to expand out Daredevil’s origin story with mentions of training and not just seeing him be blind as a child. What I am not clear on is if Kingpin is a party to Matt Murdock’s decision to become Daredevil. Or is this going to be very flashback based like Arrow (I hope not)?

We also got a real exposure to Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin! It is kind of weird, just because I am used to him with hair. I am sure he will do a good job.

Can’t wait for the launch on April 10, 2015 on Netflix!!!!

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron Trailer

Avengers2544857f3d01b7
The 2nd Age of Ultron trailer has hit the interwebs! I am really interested to see how The Vision and the Scarlet Witch’s story lines will compare to the comic books.

I am also curious who the scruffy man is. He reminds me of Wolverine (not Hugh Jackman but the character;) but we know that can’t be. And he doesn’t look like Paul Bettany to me so he can’t be The Vision. Hmm… I haven’t researched at all yet so I may report back;).

So what do you think? Are you excited or already disappointed because of the changes to the stories we already know? I am excited and looking for to this premiere and the Daredevil show that will premiere in April. Big spring for Marvel!

I do believe that Marvel will soon run the world;). So can we get Iron Man to pop over to France to deal with things;)?

A Commitment for a SuperGirl Series

There has been a commitment announced for a SuperGirl series announced today. CBS has given a series commitment for the series that has been in development by Adler and Berlanti.

Between this, the possible Titans series over on TNT, Arrow’s success and the soon to be debuted Flash things are looking good for the comic book tv world! I also really love the idea of a strong female character taking the lead as the hero.

So what do you think? Do you think this or the Titans will ever actually see the light of the tv screen? Do you think these or the new Flash have a hope of making it for a whole season or more?

Let me know in the comments!

Marvel, Netflix and Star Wars News!!!

There is great geek entertainment news out today!

First off, we have a release date for Star Wars Episode VII! It will be released December 18, 2015. Everything else in the press release, while fabulous, was pretty much known information. John Williams will be doing the music. J.J. Abrams will be directing and there is an over all slate of people with great geek cred behind the movie.

Marvel
Then came what I consider the really big news of the day! The Marvel and Netflix deal!!!!! Marvel TV is going to do 4 live action series exclusively for Netflix and they are going to lead to a miniseries that brings all 4 together in the miniseries called The Defender! They are going to have a series for Daredevil first and then Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist keeping everything very Hell’s Kitchen focused.

There is talk of multiple years of programming but the initial commitment is fabulous on its own. Netflix has committed to carrying 13 episodes of all 4 series and then The Defender mini series.

This is so very fabulous!!!

New Iron Man 3 Trailer!!

Ok, I am not as deep into the back story on Iron Man so I don’t see this and know everything…. I am not clear who the villain is but I am sure that NerdDad will be as soon as he sees this;). I am thinking War Machine paired with someone else but I am not sure at all.

I did see some stills where I saw the big stuffed bunny on the big explosion. I just want to say… Men in movies tend to go out and buy some sort of over sized stuffed animal when they find out they are going to be a dad. I don’t know but wonder if this a possibility. Paired with needing to protect the most important things? Just musing;).

Coulson Lives

Coulson will be in the new S.H.I.E.L.D. tv series series!!!! Joss Whedon said he was the first person to be cast and that he couldn’t imagine the show without Coulson! I am stoked! So the question is…. Was it already planned for Phil Coulson to be in the television series when he was killed in The Avengers or was it the public demands?

Either way it is going to be awesome!!!

Friday Fun: The X-Men 3 That Should Have Been

Time for a little Friday Fun with X-Men-3:The Last Standing Ovation Trailer!

More Avengers with Joss!!!

It is official!!! Joss Whedon is going to be writing and directing Marvel’s The Avengers 2. Woot! In addition to that he is also going to develop a live action series for tv!!!! He is also going to have a hand in the rest of the Marvel universe.

In addition to “Marvel’s The Avengers 2,” Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014; and “Ant-Man.”

I am so excited!!! By the way, I really do believe that this just became final. Whedon said at the Firefly panel at Comic Con that he wasn’t signed on yet.

**Update: The release date for The Avengers sequel is May 1, 2015***
