Freeform TV Marvel Comics Cloak and Dagger Teaser Trailer
“Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) – two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another.

Freeform TV Marvel Comics New Warriors Lineup Revealed



Via MARVEL, we get a solid lineup of which new Warriors you can expect to see sometime in 2018 as Freeform rolls out Marvel's New Warriors TV show. News had been dropped that Squirrel Girl would be a part of the TV team, but little else was announced, leaked, or even alluded to, leading to hours and hours of FAN SPECULATION!! Would this be a mock reality series mirroring a very popular run of the comic series or a straight up teen super hero action/drama series? Welp...we still don't know the exact tone the show will take, but with these character announcements, we can for some ideas...

Wet Hot American Summer: The Roleplaying Game

Put on your cut-off shorts, wail on your acoustic guitar, and make sure you've got your 20-sided die, because The Devastator, America’s only all-humor press, is launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund an officially licensed role playing game (RPG) based on the classic comedy film WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER.

Approved by WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER co-writer and director David Wain, WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER: FANTASY CAMP is an old school tabletop RPG that allows fans to play as a camper, counselor or staffer, such as Coop, Beth or Gene, and experience one insane day at Camp Firewood. Hump a fridge, end up at a secret pizza party, or save the camp from a renegade piece of Skylab, just like in the original film!

Batman and Harley Quinn Animated Movie Preview

Batman and Harley Quinn Animated Movie Preview
It's that time again! With the arrival of the "Teen Titans: The Judas Contract" animated feature film from Warner Bros. Home Video comes a preview for the next DC Comics straight to video animated release! This time around, old-heads like me get a massive dose of nostalgia with a return to the Batman the Animated Series style of art, complete with the legendary Bruce Timm providing the brains behind the concepts. The film's creators have said this film is more like the "red headed nephew" of Batman the Animated Series and probably shouldn't be so readily shown to kids like we do with the classic cartoon series. I'll remind readers, traditionally, these straight to DVD animated films have a more of an adult tone with violence and allusions toward sexual activity on occasion.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser Trailer is HERE!!

It's TIME!! Ready for those old, familiar chills to return? Say what you will about the folks crafting the new Star Wars films... they sure can cut a trailer!! As expected, this one is gorgeous, solemn, epic in scope, jaw dropping and, on top of all of that positivity, extremely painful, as we've got 8 looooong months to wait til this one reaches theaters. EIGHT MONTHS!!! Agony of the geeks.

Thor: Ragnarok... Where Everything Goes to Hell

Marvel Studios Thor Ragnarok Teaser Trailer
Thor seems to be a tricky subject for Marvel Studios. Being a long time fan of Marvel Comics, in my opinion, they've yet to capture the fun and sense of high adventure that comes with travelling to Asgard and we've absolutely not met even 10% of the creatures and colorful characters that reside there. Director Taika Waititi Looks like he's going to change all that. With glimpses of Hela decimating Asgard, Executioner letting loose with human artillery, The Valkyries taking on Hela, and every shot looking like amazing concept art and/or Jack Kirby's last wish, I have a feeling this is the first Thor movie i'm going to be going completely insane over. CHECK OUT THE TEASER TRAILER!!!
