James Gunn reveals a new character for Guardians of the Galaxy with an on set photo!

Image
Director James Gunn has just released a new photo from the set of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and it introduces fans to a new character! The image shows actor Chris Pratt, who plays Peter Quill, standing next to actress Melia Kreiling in full makeup and costume as Bereet. Bereet made her first comic appearance in Rampaging Hulk #1 (1977, later revealed to be a fictional story created by Bereet), then again in Incredible Hulk #269 (1982, Earth 616). This will be the character's movie debut. Could the appearance of Bereet mean that the rumored fate of the Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron is true? It's really cool that Bereet will be making her big screen debut and it'll be interesting to see how she is used in the film.

Unusual features of Bereet:
"As a Krylorian, Bereet shares the traits of her part-bird part-mammal people. They have feather crests on their heads, two fingers and a thumb on each hand, and two toes on each foot. Their bones are hollow, which accou…

Guardians of the Galaxy 17 minute IMAX sneak peek breakdown!

Image
Last night Marvel teamed up with AMC Theaters to treat fans to an exclusive 17 minute sneak peek of their new film Guardians of the Galaxy on an IMAX 3D screen. I was lucky enough to be able to attend this screening and was very excited to see what the Guardians had in store for Marvel fans. I have to admit, if there was any doubt about how good this film was going to be, it has completely vanished. I walked out of the theater in complete awe. This film is going to be amazing.

There were a lot of questions that needed to be answered about the film in this screening. Would Chris Pratt give a strong performance in his role as Star-Lord? What would Rocket Raccoon and Groot look like on the big screen? How would the chemistry of the Guardians look on screen? Would Dave Bautista deliver a good performance as Drax? All this and more was answered and the results will make everyone happy.

One thing that is abundantly clear is that this is going to be like no other Marvel film we have seen and…

Harry Potter vs Twilight dance battle! [video]

Fandoms collide in this epic dance battle between the cast of Harry Potter and Twilight.  This encounter could have turned into a horrific battle to the death if it wasn't for the intervention of Hagrid who decides the only way to settle the "turf war" between the two groupd is a dance battle. The dance routine is exceptionally well done with a nice song to go along with it. The video get a lot of small details right that really make it stand out like the Harry Potter trio shooting spells from their wands at the 56 second mark and Ron's spell backfiring on him. Hagrid cracked me up the entire video. And there's a fun cameo at the end that will excite fans. Enjoy!

Fan-made footage of a Imperial StarPort in Germany makes you wish Star Wars was real! [video]

Check out this entertaining fan-made "set video" from the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. Shot in Frankfurt, Germany, Frank Wunderlich has turned the Frankfurt Airport into an Imperial StarPort that is filled with Imperial ships and vehicles like TIE Fighters, AT-ATs, AT-STs, and the Lambda-class T-4a shuttle. The video is really cool and well made. Makes me wish I could really visit a StarPort like this! The video came with the following description:
"Looks like the Story of Star Wars plays on Earth too in the next Episode. I took these pictures on my Flight back from the States to Germany at the Frankfurt Airport. Seems like the biggest german airport plays a key role as an imperial starport in the new episode -- there have just been imperial forces at the scene. Maybe the Rebelboys hide in Berlin... :-D" Enjoy!

New Hyrule Warriors trailer focuses on Agitha, the "Princess of Bugs"! [video]

The self proclaimed "Princess of Bugs" has arrived! A new trailer focusing on Agitha as a playable character in the upcoming Hyrule Warriors on the Nintendo Wii U has been released! Agitha was first seen in the game The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and has surprisingly made a comeback for this new The Legend of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors mash-up.

I have to admit that so far I am not deeply impressed with Agitha as a playable character though one or two of her bug moves look pretty cool. So far I'd probably imagine that this will be the character I play least as, if at all.

Hyrule Warriors will hit store shelves in North America on September 26, 2014.
