RBS' Cosplay Closet - Heroes Con 2014! [video]

Distractotron recently attended Heroes Con 2014 in Charlotte, NC and had the privilege of shooting some wonderful cosplayers and cosplays while there. Distractotron always does a great job with their coverage and videos and this is no exception. All the classic staples of a convention make their appearance in this video but I really have to hand it off to Prince Robot IV from Saga. It was perfectly done and the thing that made this stand out is that it was a working TV! Wow. There is also a really impressive Spawn cosplay which is great because you don't see him done too much anymore. You also get to see a great Wonder Woman from Katie George, aka Katie Cosplays.

Sit back and enjoy the cosplays of Heroes Con! Let me know which really stood out for you and which was your favorite!

Everything you need to know about Marvel's Ant-Man! [video]

With Ant-Man currently in production it's a good idea to take a look at the character before you go see the film so that you are not going in to the film clueless.

This fantastic video will walk you through everything that you need to know in order to get ready for the upcoming film. Find out exactly who this character is, what his powers are, and much more. The great thing about this video though is that while is shares a lot of important information it does so in a way that is quite humorous.

Boromir vs. Brienne - A brilliant The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones mash-up! [video]

Take a look at this impressive mash-up video that combines the hit movie The Lord of the Rings with the hit show Game of Thrones! Creator Austin Saltz did an amazing job with this video.

The resulting split together fight scene is quite entertaining and fans of both franchises will love it. Enjoy!

Big names are revealed for cameos in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy!

Image
A number of cameos have been revealed for the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy and the list is quite fun!

Being reported by Stitch Kingdom, the list of cameos goes beyond just Stan Lee and Nathan Fillion. If you do not want to know the cameos this would be the time to stop reading.

*Possible spoilers ahead.*

Starting the list of cameos is Stan Lee who will be a "Xandarian Ladies' Man." Next up is Nathan Fillion who will be done up as a "Monsterous inamte". (I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for him as I did not recognize him in the prison scenes during the 17 minute IMAX sneak peek.) A surprise cameo of sorts comes in the form of musician Rob Zombie's voice as the "Ravager Navigator Voice". Director James Gunn is even getting into the fun with a cameo of his own as one of the "Maskless Sakaaran". A particularly fun "cameo" will be Fred the dog who will be playing the character Cosmo! Cosmo is a Russian space dog w…

Marvel announces that Iron Man will return with a new suit and a new book titled "Superior Iron Man"!

Image
It appears that Marvel is really looking to shake things up in Marvel NOW. They have revealed that Iron Man, aka Tony Stark, is getting an all new suit and a new comic book titled Superior Iron Man which will be released later this fall.

Tony Stark will be moving from New York City to San Francisco and will don an all silver Iron Man suit. Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso informed Entertainment Weekly that , "The newly-transformed Superior Iron Man has very ambitious plans for the city that some of its residents embrace, but not all," and that, "The Genius Bar costume is there for a reason." You can see in the photo below of the new Avengers Initiative that the new Iron Man suit sort of looks like it was inspired by Apple products.

Fans will likely notice the addition of "Superior" in the title of the comic that is reminiscent of Superior Spider-Man but Alonso assures fans that nothing like what happened in that story (Doctor Octopus taking over Peter Par…

Marvel announces that The Falcon will take over as Captain America!

Image
On the heels of announcing that Thor would now be a woman, Marvel has made another big announcement but this time on The Colbert Report.

Creative Officer Joe Quesada appeared on the show and revealed to the world that Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, would be taking over as Captain America.

The character of Steve Rogers recently lost his powers in his comic book written by Rick Remender so getting a new Captain America was inevitable. Having The Falcon take the role is a great choice and makes perfect sense. Movie audiences will recognize the character from Captain America: The Winter Soldier where actor Anthony Mackie played The Falcon.

Comic book fans will also realize that this isn't the first time that the name Captain America has gone to a new character. Recently, Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier, took over as Captain America when Steve Rogers was thought to be dead. It's also important to note that this is not the first black Captain America either. A character by the name…

Everything Wrong With Fantastic Four! [video]

Cinema Sins released a new "Everything Wrong With" video today and they finally took aim at Fantastic Four! You would think a movie about Marvel's first family would come out amazing but unfortunately you would be wrong. Cinema Sins points out a lot of great moments of this film and it took them 16 minutes to point out everything that was wrong in the film.
"Before Spider-Man 3, Green Lantern, or most of the modern "bad" superhero films... there was Fantastic Four. And its badness still holds up well to this day. We went looking for sins, and yeah... it took a while. "

Brilliant Doctor Who 50th Anniversary LEGO Tribute! [video]

A dedicated Doctor Who fan has created a brilliant LEGO stop motion video tribute to the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary episode! This fan recreated the entire episode in five and a half minutes using LEGO figures and sets and it is a lot of fun to watch! There are a lot of little details in the video as well that really make it stand out, like the Seventh Doctor's LEGO legs being slightly shorter than the other Doctors' so that he is shorter at the end when they are all standing together. Nice touch. Enjoy!

Fans get their first look at Ultron from Avengers: Age of Ultron on the cover of Entertainment Weekly!

Image
The newest issue of Entertainment Weekly will feature a cover devoted to the upcoming Marvel film Avengers: Age of Ultron. The best part about this new cover is that it gives fans the first official look at the film's villain, Ultron! Standing with Ultron on the cover is Iron Man and Captain America. Looking at the characters, Tony Stark's Iron Man suit looks like ... well an Iron Man suit. There are some color differences but not a lot to get me excited here. Then you have a good look at Captain America's new suit which looks like a hybrid of his past suits (WWII, Avengers, and the Stealth suit from The Winter Soldier). Finally, you have Ultron standing in the back. Unfortunately, we do not get a full body view of Ultron but he still looks absolutely amazing! From this look I can tell that he will be terrifying during his big scenes! I cannot wait!

Avengers: Age of Ultron will be in theaters on May 1, 2015.

New Disney Infinity 2.0 trailer confirms Tinkerbell and Stitch figures! [video]

Image
Rumors had been circulating about new character announcements for the video game Disney Infinity 2.0 and it turns out that they were true! There was a new trailer released today by Disney that revealed two new character figures for the new game; Tinkerbell and Stitch! These two characters were among the most requested characters from Disney fans and the developers heard the fans loud and clear.

These new figures will be released sometime this fall and will be able to be used in the Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Boxonly. This could be really cool since the Toy Box is said to be getting a huge overhaul and players will be able to create new environments a lot easier this time around.

I like the bases of these figures as well. You can see in the above photo that Tinkerbell is standing on a leaf while Stitch is standing on sand. It is also being reported that Tinkerbell will have the flight ability and healing pixie dust and Stitch will have a super jump and a blaster gun.

You get to see a lot …

Everything wrong with Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix! [video]

Cinema Sins has returned with their comedic sights set on Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix. This particular "Everything Wrong With" is a long one at 18 minutes but I highly recommend sitting through it since it is absolutely hilarious.
"Today we return to the Harry Potter franchise... something many of you have been rudely clamoring for us to do. In the 5th Potter film, we see continued Hogwarts ineptitude, some teenage hormones, a bad teacher, and magic somehow gets even more confusing." Enjoy!

Original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films get a recut modern trailer! [video]

1990 saw the release of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film with the sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze in 1991. With the newest Turtle film set to be coming out in a few weeks lets take a look at what the original films would be like with a recut, modern trailer. This new trailer uses the music from the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer and definitely makes you want to rewatch the original films. The first two films were pure genius (though that cannot be said for the third film released in 1993 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III) and are definitely worth revisiting once in a while. Enjoy the modern trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles below!

Warner Bros. Animation has released the opening scene from their upcoming animated DC film Batman: Assault on Arkham. The scene features the Riddler (voiced by Matthew Gray Gubler) speaking to Amanda Waller and giving her various riddles to solve. DC animated film are usually pretty good and I would be surprised if this one was not.

Photos of Jurassic World's visitor guide finds its way online!

Image
Filming has been underway for Colin Treverrow's Jurassic World and it seems that another piece of the film has found its way to the internet. Extras on the film's set were given a Visitor's Guide for the park and photos of the guide's contents have been revealed!

The guide offers a lot of fun info about the park and the attractions that it will have for its visitors. This of course may enter spoiler territory so if you do not want to see any movie information I suggest that you look away now.


The guide reveals that comedian Jimmy Fallon may have a cameo in the film as the host of an instructional video in the Gyrosphere located at the park. The guide then reveals the full list of attractions that the park has to offer. I know that if this park were real I would start saving to go right away. Yes, things can eventually go horribly wrong and always do, but I love dinosaurs and this park sounds like an incredible amount of fun.

New trailer for Super Smash Bros. reveals Lucina, Robin, and Captain Falcon as playable characters! [video]

A new trailer debuted this morning for Super Smash Bros. and it appears that this was the trailer that everyone was waiting for! There are two different fan groups that fell in love with this trailer. The first group are fans of the Fire Emblem franchise and the second are fans of the F-Zero franchise (or more specifically the character announced).

This new trailer introduced three new fighters to the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game; Lucina (Fire Emblem: Awakening), Robin (Fire Emblem: Awakening), and Captain Falcon (F-Zero). Robin offers players a chance to play as a male or a female version of the character which is pretty cool and adds to the female characters in the game.
