Shazam gets 3 DC Nation short films; Courage, Stamina, and Wisdom! [video]

DC Nation has put out three marvelous new animated shorts featuring the hero Shazam! The three shorts are each named after a power of Shazam, courage, stamina, and wisdom, and I would bet that fans could expect his three other powers to be turned into shorts as well; power, speed, and strength. These shorts are a lot of fun and light hearted and every DC fan out there will enjoy them.

Game of Thrones - 1960's / Saul Bass style theme song and title sequence! [video]

Musical covers of TV theme songs will never get old for me. There are just so many variations that could be done! Take this new cover for the hit HBO show Game of Thrones for example. This 1960's / Saul Bass influenced theme and title sequence are amazing!
"Since I love Saul Bass, the 60's and HBO's Game of Thrones, I made an alternative title sequence. Here is the result. Enjoy!" Enjoy and remember ... Winter is coming.

The team is back in the new poster for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!

Image
Marvel has just released a new poster for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 that sets a more serious tone. I like how the team is an actual part of the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo here and I really love that the whole team is present but Agent Ward is facing the opposite direction than the rest of the team. It'll be interesting to see where his character goes in this new season.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will premiere on Tuesday, September 23 at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC!

Vic Mignogna continues the original Star Trek series in his new web series "Star Trek Continues"! [video]

The original Star Trek series started a franchise that has been continually building its fan base since 1966. The original series started with a narrated oath from Captain Kirk which said,
"Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before." 
Sadly, the original show only last for three seasons and therefore never fully got to explore it's five year mission. This is where voice actor, and Star Trek superfan, Vic Mignogna comes in. Vic Mignogna is best known for his voice acting work on Full Metal Alchemist, Bleach, Naruto, and many other anime shows and films but he has been a life long fan of the Star Trek franchise. He has brought the original series back with a new web series titled "Star Trek Continues" that will look to explore and finish those last two unknown years from the original series.

Marvel and ABC have released the first 2 minutes of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 premiere and fans get a lot from just 2 minutes!

Image
Rumors for the Deadpool film have been in abundance for quite some time but it seems that Fox has decided to put all those rumors to rest.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Deadpool film is officially happening! Fox officially announced today that the film Deadpool will hit theaters on February 12, 2016! Director Tim Miller is set to direct the film and although nothing is on paper for actor Ryan Reynolds just yet it seems like it's only a matter of time before he signs on.

A few weeks ago test footage leaked for the film that sparked a hugely positive fan reaction. Ryan Reynolds wore a motion capture suit for the test footage and was pleasantly surprised at how positive fans took to it. In an interview he stated,
"The movie has been in a state of limbo for a while. There was such an overpowering reaction to the footage, you sort of feel like, 'Oh, so we weren't crazy for our reasons for loving this character, for loving this role.' It's interesting to see the power of …

Dan Aykroyd discusses how the Ghostbusters films may be expanded to a much larger Ghostbusters universe!

Image
There have been a lot of rumors circulating recently about the pending Ghostbusters 3 film but now it seems that things may be getting even bigger than we thought.

Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd spoke about some ideas that have been bouncing around at Sony. According to the actor Sony is possibly looking to much more than just a sequel to the 1980's classic film. While discussing these plans, Aykroyd compared them to the Marvel Universe and the scope of how those films are being run. This is apparently where Sony wants to take the Ghostbusters brand.
"It’s beyond just another sequel, a prequel, another TV show. I'm thinking what does the whole brand mean to Sony?" he said. "What does Pixar and Star Wars mean to Disney? What does Marvel mean to Fox?"  He added that the focus must be "not just another movie or another TV show, but what’s the totality of it? The whole mythology from the beginning of their lives, the end of their lives. Ghostbusters at nine…
