New concept art for Star Wars: The Force Awakens shows off a new TIE fighter!

Image
We have already seen that the X-Wing will be getting an upgrade in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens but thanks to a new piece of concept art found be Indie Revolver it appears that the TIE fighter will be as well!

This redesign of the TIE fighter has several noticeable changes which include a new paint job, what looks like a larger cockpit with more windows, engines on the sides attached to the wings, and larger wings as well. The very interesting thing to note in this piece of art is that there area pair of red cloaked Imperial Guards standing outside of the ship. In the previous films, the only time that we saw these guards was when they were protecting the emperor. Could this be a new emperor's ship? Could the old emperor still be alive or have a clone? Could this ship belong to the villain Kylo Ren?

Who do you think this new ship belongs to and who do you think the Imperial Guards are protecting?

Fan recreates the Avengers: Infinity War trailer in high definition!

During a recent press event, Marvel released the titles and dates for their upcoming Phase 3 films which included Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2. As though the announcement all the Phase 3 films was not enough, Marvel shared a trailer for Infinity War. This trailer eventually leaked but one dedicated Marvel fan has recreated the trailer in high definition for others to enjoy.
"Here's my attempt at recreating the leaked trailer of Avengers - Infinity War in full high definition. I know I'm pretty late into the part but its only by the time I finished this that I realized others had already done it. Being a Marvel fan, I nevertheless, had to complete this.  I thought of using the exact same sound from the event to keep the reverb feel of the dialogues and of course, the crowd reaction. This was also because doing the sound seemed a bit difficult for me (I'm a newbie you see)  Some shots were also replaced with shots I saw as the best / closest substitutes. This is …

Behind the Magic: The Visual Effects of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a smash hit at the box office and one of the many reason that it did so well was the film's stunning visual effects. Here is a wonderful video that highlights how these effects were made and shows you the layering of effects that created one incredible film.
"We are proud to present a sampling of of ILM’s visual effects work for Marvel's blockbuster hit, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo.   This reel represents a small sampling of the nearly 900 visual effects shots ILM contributed to the film created by an international crew of 300+.  The bulk of ILM's work appears in the film's third act and consists of the helicarrier's massive underwater hanger, their ensuing battle, and the helicarriers themselves inside and out, sprawling digital Washington D.C. and Rosslyn environments including the Triskelion building complex on Roosevelt Island, highly detailed …

The big reveal of the new lightsaber in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer had mixed reactions from fans but one positive thing to come out of it was hilarious videos like this. YouTube channel "happyhour" has created a really fun animated video that shows off some of the various lightsabers that have been created in the years between Episode VI and Episode VII. Although some of the new sabers may look cool, their practicality may be lacking.

YouTube channel "The Comic Archive" have created two very interesting videos that shows fans how to create one giant omnibus video for the entire Marvel cinematic universe. If you are dedicated enough and have all of the necessary films, TV shows, and shorts, then you can watch the entire Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Marvel cinematic universe in chronological order.
Here is the message that was attached to the Phase 1 video.
"Over the fall I decided to put together a supercut of all the Marvel movies, putting all the scenes in correct story order. I like to call it the Marvel Movie Omnibus. Here you'll find instructions on how to make your own cut for Phase 1 (everything up through the Avengers)." The attached videos will walk you through how to edit the footage into a giant film and why select footage was placed where. This seems like it could be a lot of work but I hope a copy of these video find their way online. It would make for a fantastic marathon day.

"Somebody Call The Doctor" - A Doctor Who rock video by Kat Robichaud and The Darling Misfits.

Check out this fun video from singer and YouTuber Kat Robichaud that centers around the hit sci-fi show Doctor Who. Her video is titled "Somebody Call The Doctor" and features an original song being performed by Kat Robichaud and The Darling Misfits.

This rock video and song are a lot of fun and its fun to see the various Doctor Who cosplayers running around but to paraphrase a line from the song, this video is a bit of a sensory overload. That is however just my opinion.

Enjoy!

Agent Carter featurette has Hayley Atwell talking about Peggy going under cover.

Actress Hayley Atwell is featured in a new Marvel featurette for her show Agent Carter where she discusses her character going under cover.

""She has an intelligence about her and a skill set that's very impressive," says Atwell, "and yet we get to see the emotional and psychological cost of her character, of someone who's having to live a double life.""

In this great fan film trailer Christopher Nolan's Batman is put up against the CW's Arrow! The two franchises are grounded in a more realistic reality and share quite a few similarities but who would come out victorious if Christian Bale's Batman and Stephen Amell's Arrow went toe to toe?
