Fantastic Marvel animated tribute video featuring all your favorite heroes' logos!

Marvel Studios currently uses flipping comic book pages as its logo at the beginning of its movies but vimeo user "BlackMeal" has created something that could replace it with ease (from the fans at least). This fantastic video serves as a fantastic animated tribute to the Marvel franchise and has many of their big characters or character logos represented in it. The only hold back for Marvel to use something like this as their new animated logo is that they do not own the movie rights to all of the characters represented which is a real shame. Take a look at the video and let me know what you think.



The superheroes and superhero groups featured in this great animated piece are Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine, X-Men, Cyclops, Hulk, Mr. Fantastic, Fantastic Four, Invisible Woman, The Human Torch, The Thing, Iron Man, and Thor.

The game looks incredible, it looks fun, and fans will surely love it. Vignocchi says that it will appeal to young kids as well as adults who love Disney which is great. The one thing that is the catch here is all the money you will inevitably end up spending on new playsets and characters.

Game of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen as a Disney character!

If Disney were ever to take a shot at making a Game of Thrones animated story, which is unfortunately unlikely, the character of Daenerys Targaryen may look a little like this. Photoshopped from a picture of Rapunzel, this picture of Daenerys along with her dragon Pascal is absolutely adorable! What do you think?

The first full length international trailer has been released for The Wolverine and fans' jaws will drop after they have watched it. It is truly incredible and now we see why James Mangold told fans that this will be like no other X-Men film they have ever seen.

Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before." Find out what happens when Wolverine is pushed to his limit and his immortality is put on the line. Are you as excited for this film as I am?

Jurassic Park: Really Clever Girl! [video]

Image
One of the most iconic quotes from the Jurassic Park film is where the character Muldoon gets attacked by a velociraptor and says "Clever girl...". Now we know that velociraptors were incredibly smart but they could have been smarter than we'll ever be able to figure out. So the folks over at Animation Domination High Def (ADHD) created this great animated short to show us just how clever velociraptors really are. The result is hilarious and scary at the same time!



A special thank you goes out to my girlfriend, Jackie, for sharing this video with me!

Doctor Who mini episode - The Battle of Demons Run: 2 Days Later! [video]

Image
With the release of a fun new mini episode, the BBC has answered one of Doctor Who's unanswered questions. During the Battle of Demon's Run (from the Season 6 episode "A Good Man Goes To War"), we see the Sontaran nurse, Strax, killed in glorious action. However, when the 2012 Christmas Special, "The Snowmen", came around we saw Strax alive and well with Madame Vastra and Jenny. How was he still alive? And what was he doing in London in the late 1800s?

This 3 minute mini episode is titled "The Battle of Demon's Run: 2 Days Later" and shows us how Strax survived and how he ends up staying with Madame Vastra and Jenny. The comedic delivery of this trio while on screen is fantastic and I hope to see more of them in the future!

First movie poster for Ender's Game has been released!

Image
The first poster for the sci-fi film adaptation Ender's Game has officially been released and it gives fans a lot to be excited about. Taking the role of the genius character Ender is actor Asa Butterfield (Hugo) and that is exactly who this poster focuses on.

"In the poster you see the figure of Ender from behind. He’s decked out in his full spacesuit with his laser pistol at his side (his helmet has a dragon insignia for his team, “Dragon Army”). At his feet is the message, “Warning: Null G Beyond This Point,” meaning there will be no gravity once he steps into the Battle Room. Inside you see his fellow competitors blasting at each other, with most grabbing onto the immobile “stars” (the blocks with the triangles on them) for support. And the transparent walls of the room give you a view of the Earth as the Battle School orbits above." What do you think of the first poster? Are you excited for this film?

New trailer for World War Z! [video]

Image
After the first trailer for World War Z, fans new it would be different than the book. But after this newest trailer fans will know that is will be nothing like the book. It's safer to watch this trailer as it's own stand alone zombie movie. If you do that maybe you'll be interested in it. The zombies in this movie are unlike any fans have seen before. Extremely fast runners, as in every one is a world record breaking runner, and attacking in massive hordes of thousands, the human population is screwed. Enjoy the newest trailer for World War Z.
