Marvel releases the logo for the Daredevil series on Netflix!

Image
Marvel and Netflix have revealed the brand new logo for their upcoming series Daredevil! The logo is classic and simple and I think that was the best route to take. Great job.
"“Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.  Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus,” “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) and Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods,” “Lost,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” in addition to writing the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil”), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”)." Will you be watching Daredevil when it premieres on Netflix?

Everything Wrong With Godzilla (2014) in 16 minutes! [video]

Not every film can be perfect and that feat is even harder when making a monster movie. When Gareth Edwards took on the challenge of making the ultimate monster movie, Godzilla, fans knew there would be hiccups (although we all hoped there wouldn't be). Cinema Sins has just released their "Everything Wrong With" video for Godzilla and they were able to find enough things for a 16 minute video.
"Godzilla (2014) was a much better film than the last Godzilla we got, (1998), but it's still full of sins, beginning with its misleading title."

Star Wars Rebels looks to bring back the awe of lightsabers! [video]

After waiting a long time the Star Wars Rebels premiere is tonight (9pm ET on the Disney Channel)! Taking place in between the prequel trilogy and the original trilogy this show will be setting up events in Episodes IV, V, and VI.

A new, and amazing, video has been released that shares some really cool information. First, this show will have an original trilogy feel to it which is fantastic! Second, the show will be looking to capture the original awe that the Jedi and lightsabers brought to the original films. Watch as CG supervisor Joel Aron takes us through the creation process of making the lightsabers look like those seen in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. From referencing scenes to get the thickness, vibration, and brightness of the lightsaber effects perfectly in tune to what we saw in Episode IV this video shows all the hard work that the Star Wars Rebels team went to.

I am so excited for this show!

Pikachu as Thor and Link as Captain America? Love it! Watch the video to find out what Nintendo heroes (and villains) step into the world of Marvel.
"Nintendo's mightiest heroes must assemble to defeat the galaxy's puniest god, and recapture the legendary power of ... the NESeract!" Enjoy!

Cool! Check out this interview clip from 1983 where Mark Hamill addresses the possibility of playing Luke Skywalker in Star Wars - Episode VII. Mark describes the role as an Obi-Wan type character handing Excalibur down to the next generation. Back in 1983 George Lucas estimated that this role would surface around 2011.

Hilarious super-cut shows that X-Men's Professor X is actually a wimp. [video]

Even though Professor Charles Xavier is one of the strongest and smartest mutant mankind as ever known it seems as though when the pressure is on that he is a complete wimp. That's what this hilarious video from Screen Junkies aims to prove anyway. Watch as a young Charles Xavier looks into the mind of Wolverine and sees his future self and all the times that he has been less than "extraordinary". Using clips from X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men (the animated series), and a few choice Patrick Stewart clips, this video will definitely make every X-Men fan laugh. 
"The '90s X-Men cartoon was one of the best things ever, but people always seem to forget one thing - Professor X was a total wuss." Enjoy!

She even had a moment to recreate an iconic image between her and the third Doctor with Peter Capaldi who is playing the twelfth Doctor. This recreated image is simply brilliant.
