Nintendo reveals new, jaw dropping Zelda U footage at The Game Awards!

Image
Well, I don't think anybody saw this coming! Tonight at The Game Awards, Nintendo showed off the world premiere of some jaw dropping new footage of the upcoming title for The Legend of Zelda for the Wii U.

The footage looks absolutely amazing and better than anything we have seen before. They are fully pushing the Wii U hardware to the limits and I love it!

Eiji Aonuma played the game while he and Shigeru Miyamoto talked about the game and its features. First off Hyrule is now massive. They showed the map on the gamepad and it is absolutely huge. This is clearly the biggest Hyrule to date and now players can mark things on the map as places to travel to which is cool.

Another element that we saw was the sail cloth that debuted in Skyward Sword. One element that has returned that has me extremely excited is the return of Epona! In this new title mounted combat has been greatly improved! Epona will now continue running to a destination freely moving out of the way of trees and rock…

Aquaman takes the opportunity of having an atentive audience and speaks about his fellow Justice League teammates in this funny Upright Citizens Brigade sketch.

Watch as he rips into everyone except Wonder Woman. She's really nice. No reason to make fun of her.

Benedict Cumberbatch is cast to play Marvel's Doctor Strange!

Image
It's official! Actor Benedict Cumberbatch officially joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Marvel's Doctor Strange film as the title character!

The character of Stephen Strange was a neurosurgeon who gets into a terrible car accident and loses mobility in his hands which ends his career. As a means to getting his skills back he dives into the mystical arts and discovers a world that he never expected. This discovery leads him down the path to become a Sorcerer Supreme and the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. The character of Doctor Strange was co-created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1963.

Marvel has been in talks with Cumberbatch since October.
"“Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character.”"
The film is being directed by Scott Derrickson and is set to be released on …

Ryan Reynolds confirmed to be Deadpool in the new film!

Image
Fox recently announced, to many fans' excitement, that they will be releasing a Deadpool film in 2016. The character was first introduced in X-Men Origins: Wolverine but failed to live up to fan expectation. Actor Ryan Reynolds succeeded as the character Wade Wilson with his quick wit but the actual character of Deadpool was less than satisfying. This had nothing to do with Reynolds however.

It appears now that Ryan Reynolds will be getting a second chance to play the "merc with a mouth" as Deadline confirmed that Fox was in final talks with Reynolds to play the title character in their Deadpool film. This news along with Reynolds' earlier tweet (seen below) confirms that the actor will be back to play Deadpool and this is amazing news!

The film will be directed by Tim Miller with a script written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The film is scheduled to start production this March with a release scheduled for February 2016.

Watch the first trailer for Terminator Genisys!

After yesterday's short 15 second teaser, the first full length trailer for Terminator: Genisys has been released! I am pleasantly surprised at how good this film looks and it looks like it could bring the original Terminator fans back to the franchise. (Let's hope it does because this is a planned trilogy.) Emilia Clarke is an absolute badass as Sarah Connor and I cannot wait to see her portrayal of the character and it's really cool to see a T-1000 (liquid metal Terminator) back in the films! (Though this could be my love for Game of Thrones and Terminator 2 coming out.) This trailer looks cool but I hope that this alternated past we see brings forward a lot of new story elements not seen in the previous films. Watch the full trailer below and let me know if you are excited for this films release.

Terminator Genisys will be in theaters on July 1, 2015.

Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams says she'd love to play Ellie in the The Last of Us film adaptation!

Image
Earlier this year fans found out that Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams was in talks to take the role of Ellie in a film adaptation of the hit video game The Last of Us. Director Sam Raimi is attached with Neil Druckmann, writer for the The Last of Us video game, attached to write the screenplay. Now Williams is coming forward and stating that it looks like it could actually happen.

Williams was not familiar with the game but when fans on twitter, including Ellie voice actress Ashley Johnson, fan casted her for the role. This sparked Williams' interest and she got her new American agent to work to set up a meeting for her.

""And when I got my American agent and he said, ‘If there’s anything you want to do, let us know’ — America’s got such that can-do attitude. That was the first time I came to him with anything. So he said he’d set us up for a meeting next time I’m in America. And they did. So I had a meeting with [producer] Sam Raimi and [game director] Neil Druckm…

Read the official synopsis for the The Fantastic Four reboot film!

Image
The reboot for TheFantastic Four from director Josh Trank has been getting a lot of heat from fans concerning some of the news of changes that would be made in the film. We'll have to wait and see how these changes unfold in the film and how they will play out but fans should at least give it a chance.

Rotten Tomatoes has posted an official synopsis from the studio.
"THE FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy. (C) Fox" Although the origin story has clearly been changed this film still has potential to be good and fans should understand that not every adaptation can be 100% true to the comics. As long as the core conc…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice villains confirmed.

Image
*Possible spoilers ahead.

Fans having been eager to know who the villains of the upcoming Zack Snyder film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be since the films announcement and it appears that they have just been confirmed.

Badass Digest is confirming that the Superman villain Doomsday will be a villain in the film while a secondary villain will be KGBeast (a villain from the Batman franchise), who in this film will be working for Lex Luthor.

Badass Digest states,
"Yes! Lex Luthor has many agents making his dark agenda a reality, an agenda that includes keeping an eye on all metahumans, mainly a woman who walks the streets today but who is seen in pictures from the 1800s. A wonder woman, you might say. At any rate, one of Luthor's agents has a name, and that name is Anatoli Knyazev. Hardcore fans will recognize that as the name of the KGBeast, a Batman villain introduced in 1988's classic Ten Nights of the Beast storyline. In that story the Beast, an enhanced agent…

Stephen Colbert discusses Star Wars: The Force Awakens and defends the new Sith lightsaber!

Stephen Colbert is a known geek and he has never tried to hide it. Last night when he returned to his show The Colbert Report he spoke about the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer and what he loved about it. Most notably however is his defense of the new Sith lightsaber. He discusses how the saber is actually practical and why it makes sense. His explanation makes sense and seeing how into it he gets is really funny. (But don't we all get that way discussing things we are passionate about? Especially the new Star Wars trailer!) Enjoy!

The cast of the Suicide Squad film has been confirmed!

Image
Fans have been theorizing about who could be starring in the upcoming Suicide Squad film but all the theories can now end as the cast has officially been confirmed!

Margot Robbie will star as Harley Quinn along side Jared Leto as the Joker. Will Smith will be Deadshot, Australian actor Jai Courtney will play Captain Boomerang, Tom Hardy is set to play Rick Flagg, and Cara Delevingne is Enchantress.

This is an interesting casting and an interesting line-up of villains for the Suicide Squad. I didn't expect Will Smith to pop up in this film and I am not sure how he'll be. His past few films have been kind of "meh" for me. I can the addition of the Joker in the film but I am also assuming that he'll be a big role and a member of the team which I am actually not in favor of. To my memory Joker has never been a member of the squad in the comics and it'll feel weird to have him be in the film. We'll just have to wait and see. I'm excited to see how a  major…

The 90s show ReBoot is coming back to television with the new series ReBoot: The Guardian Code!

Image
In a surprise move it appears that the 1994-2001 Canadian CGI animated television show ReBoot is coming back!

Rainmaker Entertainment has announced that they have plans for a new series titled ReBoot: The Guardian Code.

The original 1994 show was set in a 3D world inside of a computer mainframe and therefore had many comparisons to the Tron films. Orginally airing in Canada on YTV it was later picked up by ABC here in the US and aired until 2001. There is still no word on what this new series will be about but I now that there will be a lot of excited people to see this piece of the 90's return.

Are you excited to see ReBoot coming back to television? 

A big thank you goes out to my friend Kaitlyn for the tip on this new series!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer gets a J.J. Abrams edit with more lens flare!

One particular fan thought that the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn't have enough lens flare for J.J. Abrams' standards so they took it upon themselves to add some. Watch the newly edited trailer now complete with classic J.J. Abrams lens flare.
"Poor JJ Abrams, he gets a lot of stick for his use of lens flare. I noticed there wasn't that much in the new Star Wars Trailer so I figured I'd bring up to JJ's spec." Enjoy!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer narrator is revealed!

Image
Since the release of the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens fans have been trying to figure out who the man behind the narrating voice is. Many speculated that it could be English actor Benedict Cumberbatch. Though the voice sounded similar to Cumberbatch I was never sold on this theory.

All the speculation can now come to an end however as it was confirmed this morning who the voice belonged to. On Good Morning America it was confirmed that the narrator for the teaser trailer was actor Andy Serkis.

Serkis' role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still unknown but it is being rumored that he may have two separate roles in the film. Given Serkis' amazing motion capture work this is completely plausible.

Did you guess that it could be Andy Serkis narrating the teaser trailer?
