Spider-Man fans received terrific news today as Marvel confirmed that there will be a new Spider-Man 2099 comic coming to shelves this July!

In 1992 Marvel had a successful comic with Spider-Man 2099 as fans loved to take a glimpse into the future of the Marvel Universe. In the year 2099 it was the character of Miguel O'Hara who was web slinging through the futuristic city and capturing the attention of fans.

New clip for How To Train Your Dragon 2! [video]

DreamWorks Animation has just released a fun clip from their upcoming film How to Train Your Dragon 2! The clip is title "Itchy Armpit" and it shows the film's main characters, Hiccup and Toothless, exploring the world while mapping out new locations. The first film was a lot of fun to watch and I can only hope that the second follows in the same footsteps!

Plot Synopsis:
"The thrilling second chapter of the epic HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON trilogy brings us back to the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years after the two have successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island's new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragon…

Official trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is released! [video]

The official trailer for director Jonathon Liebesman and producer Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has made its way to the web! Let's put aside all preconceived notions and rumors and take the trailer for the footage that we see. It looks pretty good. Sure there are differences but you would be a fool to think this would be a carbon copy of the classic 80's cartoon or the comics. There isn't enough shown just yet for me to say whether this film will be amazing or horrible. Right now it's standing on the fence with a possibility for both. However, I do like what I see and I am excited to see more. We unfortunately do not get to see the turtles really fighting in this trailer or get to see Master Splinter but I am sure those elements will be revealed in future trailers.

Plot Summary:
The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The fut…

There has been a lot of mystery and speculation surrounding the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. Photos have popped up and rumors have circulated but thanks to a special trailer event held at CinemaCon 2014, io9 has revealed some big secrets about the film. Take a look at io9's description of the teaser trailer below. 
"Moving on to the actual meat of the trailer, it starts with William Fichtner (who plays Shredder) giving a gravely voice over and a God's-eye view of (what I'm presuming is) New York City at night. "Crime, violence and fear have run rampant. Our great state is being destroyed. People want justice restored.... people want heroes, Ms. O'Neil." Which means he's talking to Megan Fox's character O'Neil. Cut to shots of the sewers and members of the Foot Clan storming the sewers and running about on the streets. Note: The Foot have an interesting new look, the purple hood has been replaced with a shiny (ish) ma…

Set photos from Avengers: Age of Ultron reveal Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Hawkeye, Iron Man, and Ultron!

Image
Filming has officially began for Avengers: Age of Ultron and the first set photos are beginning to roll in. So far the photos look pretty cool but the great thing is who we are seeing in them. Fans can now take a look at Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Iron Man, and Ultron all suited up.

*Spoilers Ahead*

While Hawkeye's suit may be similar to the one seen in The Avengers, you can see that Tony Stark will be wearing an all new suit of armor (since he blew up all his suits at the end of Iron Man 3). More excitedly, fans can now see Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Ultron! Ultron is only seen in partial costume but Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver look great in their outfits. While not the exact outfits from the comics they still remain true in spirit and concept. I for one am really excited to see these characters on the big screen.

Doctor Who set video reveals a possible new villain and Peter Capaldi using his sonic screwdriver! [video]

Filming on the Doctor Who's eighth season has been in full swing for a little while but this newest video from the set offers some new information for the upcoming eighth season.

*Spoilers Ahead*

In this new video, filmed by Ryan Ferrell, you can see that the 12th Doctor played by actor Peter Capaldi will be keeping the sonic screwdriver of the 11th Doctor, Matt Smith. This may be somewhat disappointing news for fans who were hoping to see a new screwdriver for a new Doctor. But who knows, he can still get a new one later on! The other interesting thing seen in this video is what looks like a new villain that could be part robot.

How do you feel about this new "villain"? How do you feel about Peter Capaldi's Doctor using the same screwdriver as Matt Smith's? This wouldn't be the first time we have seen a new Doctor use an old screwdriver (David Tennant's 10th Doctor used the screwdriver that belonged to the 9th Doctor, Christopher Eccleston) but fans may h…

"Oswald Cobblepot/aka The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor – The Walking Dead, Another Earth, Accepted) has the brains of a chess grandmaster and the morals of a jackal. A low-level psychopath for gangster Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), he hides his sadistic lust for power behind an exquisitely polite demeanor."

The Dragons Daughter - A musical tour of Game of Thrones' first season. [video]

Check out this fun music video from YouTuber Melodysheep that takes the viewer through a musical tour of the first season of Game of Thrones. The video is very well made and fun to watch but it is auto-tuned so those who are not into the sound of auto-tune may be not be as accepting of this video. But I think it is well worth watching.

Tony Stark of Winterfell - beautiful art work features an Iron Man / Game of Thrones mash-up!

Image
Fans have been making this comparison, as well as jokes, but this crossover art is among the best that I have seen. It features Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, as a member of House Stark of Winterfell from the book/show Game of Thrones. Created by Deviant Artist Khasis Lieb, this piece is titled "Tony Stark of Winterfell" and is extremely well done. I really like the little Iron Man helmet as the counterweight at the end of the sword's hilt. Great work!

The dwarven company from The Hobbit sings Michael Jackson's "Beat It" during the "Misty Mountains Cold" scene! [video]

YouTuber Auralnautshas created a great Michael Jackson tribute video in which the company of dwarves from The Hobbit sing the classic song "Beat It". The video is surprisingly well done and actually works great. Using the scene in which the dwarves sing "Misty Mountains Cold" from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the voices are dubbed over so that it sounds as though the actual dwarven company is singing "Beat It". The video is short at 1:32 and well worth watching. Enjoy!

First photo of Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth in the upcoming show Gotham!

Image
Recently, fans were able to take their first look at actress Camren Bicondova as the young Selina Kyle for the upcoming show Gotham. Well now fans are being treated to the first look at actor Sean Pertwee as Bruce Wayne's loyal butler, Alfred Pennyworth.
"Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee – Elementary, Camelot) is a tough-as-nails ex-marine from East London who has loyally served the Waynes. Now, in the wake of their tragic deaths, he’s fiercely protective of the young Bruce Wayne." I think they nailed the look and it'll be fun to see how Alfred's military past will play into the show. What do you think of the character's look?
