Captain America is Coming Back! Let the Real Coverage Begin!

I know it isn’t news but extended trailers are always nice! I am really intrigued to see just how pivotal The Falcon and Black Widow are going to be. And will that lead to their own movies?

And of course I am not the only one thinking and talking about Captain America;). Surf & Sunshine is talking about what she learned about the Shield in her interview with the property master!

What great (and insightful) coverage have you found out there?

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!!!

James Spader in Avengers: Age of Ultron

avengers2

There is some big Avengers news!!! The big bad has been announced. It is going to Ultron! And he is going to be played by the infamous James Spader.

I am so excited!!! I think Spader is perfect for the roll! It has been proven in his cold and calculating roll in Boston Legal and the Practice, not to mention the previews in the Blacklist. He does that odd, cold and calculating thing really and I think that is going to pair with Joss Whedon’s Avengers fabulously!!

Joss Whedon did an interview with Entertainment Weekly on how his Ultron will differ from the comic book version. A big thing I see is that Whedon is going to do what he does best and humanize Ultron by exploring his pain. This could be awesome!

I can’t wait!!! How about you? Do you think Spader is great casting or a flop?

New Thor: The Dark World Trailer is Out!!!

There is a new Thor: The Dark World trailer out and I think it looks good. I really haven’t figured out much of the plot yet but I am very intrigued. It looks beautiful and I am sure it is going to be fabulous!!!

Robert Downey Jr. & Avengers News

Robert Downey Jr. & Avengers News

Since the release of Iron Man 3, we have all been waiting with bated breath to see who was going to be returning for Avengers 2 (and other future Marvel movies). We now know that Robert Downey Jr. will be back! He has signed up not only for Joss Whedon’s Avengers 2 but also Avengers 3!!! And this isn’t rumor but actually from Marvel!

I had heard that Robert Downey Jr. wouldn’t be returning unless all the other stars received more money. I am under the assumption that he held strong to this demand so I am interested to see if this means more of the original will be in Avengers 2!

I also wasn’t aware that Avengers 3 was firmly happening so yay!!!

In other Robert Downey Jr. news: It appears that he has a $12 million marketing deal with HTC. I have say, I would watch that commercial!

The Avengers: Buffy Style

You all know that I love Joss Whendon and The Avengers and Buffy. But what would the intro to The Avengers have looked like if Whedon had done it Buffy Style;). I find the work on this piece amazing! And yes, I usually post music on Monday but the theme counts as music. Right?

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!!!
