Alien and Predator Little Golden Books!

Artist Joey Spiotto, also known as JO3BOT online, has created two new, fun book covers for his "Little Golden Books" series and this time he is taking fans back to the 1980s. The two new covers are for Alien and Predator and are titled "Facehugs For Everyone!" and "The Hungry Little Hunter" respectively. It's always fun to see what adaptations Spiotto will come up with and these two are absolutely great!

Image
More big news has surface about the Avengers sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron! Latino Review, who is known for their inside sources and amazing news scoops, has reported that the character of Ms. Marvel will indeed show up in the film! However, it is still unknown as to who will play the part. "Oh yeah, Ms. Marvel is the last piece of major casting left in the movie. Yeah, Ms. Marvel. Now, I’m not going to spoil HOW she is in it, but she is in there kids. The question now is who is going to play her? " Are you happy about the addition of Ms. Marvel into the Marvel cinematic universe? Who would you want to see cast as her? Source: Latino Review

Actor Paul Bettany cast as The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron!

Image
The newest member to join the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron has just been announced and fans should be very happy at both the casting and the character. Actor Paul Bettany, also known as the voice of JARVIS in Iron-Man, has just been cast as The Vision!

Vision is an android who was created by Ultron to help him destroy humanity but eventually rebels against him and joins the Avengers. Vision is also the love interest of Scarlet Witch.  "This cinematic incarnation will apparently be physically based on the Vision’s later pale-white appearance (per a later incarnation of the character), rather than the traditional orange-red skin tone version, according to the Daily Mail’s reports about the makeup being used on Bettany. Whether or not this choice of appearance will result in a personality likewise based on the all-white Vision — who lacked human emotion — remains to be seen." The addition of Vision will really create some fun and interesting story points and I love that he is …

Nintendo and SEGA announce Sonic Boom video game and TV series and give the sonic gang a new look! [video]

Image
Nintendo and SEGA have just unveiled some pretty big news for Sonic the Hedgehog fans! A new Sonic game and TV series have just been revealed and they are both titled Sonic Boom. SEGA wanted to create a new Sonic title to be specific for Western audiences and to go along with that idea they gave the Sonic gang (Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy) a new updated look.

I actually really like these updated looks and although fans seem to be against the new look of Knuckles, I like him as well. Knuckles needed a little bit more of a distinction between himself and Sonic and this accomplishes that perfectly.

Below you can watch the trailer for the Sonic Boom video game being released for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.




And the trailer for the Sonic Boom television series to air on Cartoon Network.



I have to admit that the last few Sonic titles haven't excited me too much but I really like the visual look that Sonic Boom has and am excited to see how the game and show progress. What do you think…

Details about Lex Luthor and Bruce Wayne are revealed for the Batman vs Superman film!

Image
When Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Batman vs Superman" film fans were wildly split on the casting. One of the big factors that has been unknown that could help fans decided if they really like this casting or not is the type of character that Luthor will be in the film.

Thanks to Latino Review, we can now take a look at some huge details for Lex Luthor as well as Bruce Wayne and see the kind of characters they'll be in the film. (*These details are of course subject to possible change.)

*Spoilers beyond this point.* "For starters, let’s get this out of the way immediately: Lex Luthor is BALD. His head is shaven to be exact. But that is not all. He has another physical trait. You see, Lex Luthor is also into body art and has a detailed sleeve tattoo of the Metropolis skyline on his right arm. Lex is also the richest man on the planet who became a self made billionaire at 18. Lex is currently the CEO of Lexcorp who is one part tech genius, one …

Stormtroopers and a Jedi Knight battle in darkness lit only by the glow of blasters and a lightsaber! [video]

Star Wars fan films are always pretty fun to watch and this short fan film is no exception. Watch as a squad of stormtroopers attempt to take out a Jedi Knight on their own. The great thing about this battle is that it takes place in complete darkness so the only light given is the light from the stormtroopers' blasters and the lightsaber of the Jedi. It makes for a very cool effect and has a great look. Enjoy!

Marc Webb announces that B.J. Novak will play Alistair Smythe in The Amazing Spider-Man 2!

Image
The release for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is soon approaching and director Marc Webb has just revealed another big comic character that will be in the film! Actor B.J. Novak (The Office) will be portraying Alistair Smythe.

This is a very interesting character to bring into an older packed film but it could be a lot of fun to see what the entrance of this character could mean to the storyline for the future of the franchise. At the moment it is unknown how large a role Novak will have in the film and whether the appearance of Alistair Smythe will just be a fun little Easter Egg for fans or if we could actually see him turn into the Ultimate Spider-Slayer along with his Spider-Man hunting robots, the Spider-Slayers in the next film. Right now there are so many characters being teased and introduced for the next film and the film's eventual spin-offs that its reasonable to suspect that at some point we will get to see the Ultimate Spider-Slayer.
