Watch the new Fantastic Four trailer re-cut using footage from the original 2005 film.

Image
When fans finally got to see the trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot reactions were extremely mixed. The original 2005 film may not have been a smash hit (in theaters or with fans) but fans at least appreciated that it stayed true to the comics for the most part. As a compromise, The Screen Watchers Guild have created a new re-cut trailer that uses footage from the 2005 film with the audio track and style of the 2015 film. It's interesting seeing these two trailers mashed together but it's a fun watch. Enjoy!

Image
Marvel Comics made a big announcement today when they announced the creation of a new superhero team that will take center stage during the upcoming "Secret Wars" storyline. The Avengers will no longer be around and it looks like the team taking their spot will be known as A-Force. The great thing about this new team is that A-Force will be made up entirely of female superheroes! The new comic will be co-written by G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel) and Marguerite Bennett (Angela), along with art from Jorge Molina.

This new team looks like it will be led by She-Hulk, and will include members such as Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru, Jean Grey, Vampira, Elektra, and a new hero named Singularity that is cosmically powered.

Discussing this new team, co-writer G. Willow Wilson stated,
"“We've purposefully assembled a team composed of different characters from disparate parts of the Marvel U, with very different power sets, identities and ideologies.” And there came a day, a day u…

1993 letter reveals George R. R. Martin's original ideas for A Song of Ice and Fire (aka Game of Thrones)!

Image
A letter has surfaced from George R.R. Martin to his publisher that gives fans an interesting look at what he was originally planning for his Song of Ice and Fire book series that would later be turned into the HBO show Game of Thrones.

This 1993 letter reveals a much different story than what fans ended up with and it is fascinating to see what Martin originally wanted to do.

The original concept had the series set as a trilogy and had Tyrion Lannister, Jon Snow, Arya Stark, Bran Stark, and Daenerys Targaryen as the only characters to survive.

Take a look at these plot points reported by The Wrap:

"Ed and Catelyn Stark still die: The Starks still don’t end well. Ed Stark dies at the hands of Joffrey Baratheon, and Catelyn flees North with her children Arya and Bran. Catelyn still meets her demise – like on Season 3 of the HBO series – but by the hands of The Others. Her son, Robb, will die in the battlefield against the Lannisters but not before killing the despicable Joffrey. Ar…

Nintendo and Netflix are looking to create a live action The Legend of Zelda series!

Image
Nintendo fans have great reason to be excited today! It is being reported that Nintendo is currently in the development stage along with Netflix to bring one of their most popular video game franchises to the streaming service with an all new live action show; The Legend of Zelda!

As it stands right now, things are in the very early stages and are looking around for writers. The current word is that the The Legend of Zelda show will resemble shows and films such as Game of Thrones or The Lord of the Rings with a more family tone to it.

Like the games the series will be, "about an ordinary boy named Link who must rescue a princess named Zelda and save a fantasy world called Hyrule". At the moment information on the series is extremely limited and Nintendo and Netflix have not yet commented on the matter.

This would be a huge move for the gaming company. Although some fans may turn their heads at the idea of the game becoming a show, and thus having the hero, Link, talk (whic…

It looks like the Game of Thrones show will finish before the books. Find out why!

As sad as it may be to realize it is currently looking like the Game of Thrones HBO series could reach the end of the story before George R.R. Martin finishes the books! I'll let the video below explain the details but this is crushing news for fans of the books.

Animated trailer for Power Rangers: Origins is everything fans could have wanted for the Power Rangers!

Take a look at this trailer for an animated Power Rangers film titled Power Rangers: Origins! From what I can tell this animated feature film was canceled before release which is a real shame because this trailer looks amazing!! I will say to watch this quick however because video of this trailer seem to be getting taken down pretty quick which is odd if this actually is an old project. That aside, the action is great and if really has a Big Hero 6 vibe to it which is cool. Let me know if you would have watched this had it been released. Enjoy!

See the first photo of Brandon Routh wearing the Atom suit for the CW's Arrow!

Image
Brandon Routh's character, Ray Palmer, on the CW show Arrow has been working pretty hard to create a suit to allow him to protect his city but until now we have not seen much of it. Fans of the comics know that Ray Palmer eventually becomes the Atom.

Today, the CW and Warner Bros. have released the first official photo of Brandon Routh posing in the Atom suit! IGN is reporting that for the moment this will be simply a suit of armor and will not yet allow Palmer to change his size at will like in the comics.

Look for an appearance of the Atom on Arrow's 15th episode airing on February 25, 2015 as well as the episode "All-Star Team-Up" on The Flash!

I am not yet sure how I feel about the design of the suit but it isn't terrible. It has an interesting look and they worked the "A" onto the chest in a very clever way given the design of the suit. How do you feel about the suit? Are you ready to see the Atom get into some action?

Characters for the upcoming Teen Titans show "The Titans" are revealed!

Image
It was recently reported that TNT would be bringing the DC Comics team the Teen Titans to the small screen with their very own show.

This new show is in the process of casting its stars and will be titled The Titans. Until this point fans could only take a guess at which characters would make it into the show and which would be left out. However, Nerdist has now revealed which characters will make it onto the team for the pilot episode according to a script they have read.

The Titans will consist of:
"Nightwing  Dick Grayson is actually Robin in this iteration (at least at the start), but has left working alongside the Batman. Now a young adult, he is working as a detective in Boston. This is strikingly similar to the original Nightwing solo comic from the early ’90s from writer Chuck Dixon, in which Dick Grayson became a police officer in Gotham’s neighboring city of Bludhaven. The character of Dick Grayson, either as Robin or Nightwing, is one of the most iconic in all of comics…

Superman's new suit is revealed; take a look at the new design!

Image
When DC Comics launched the "New 52" Superman received a new suit that looked great and had a lot of positive feedback from fans. It seems however that DC wasn't done changing him just yet. With the promise of new powers, friends, and enemies in Superman #38 also comes a whole new costume for the Man of Steel. The cover of issue #39 gives away what the new suit will look like and it keeps the overall look while still making some big changes.

This new suit is more streamlined and has gotten rid of the v-neck for a higher straight neck. Another very noticeable change is that Superman now has finger-less gloves and a redesigned belt with a yellow circle in the middle, and new boots. This new look comes from John Romita Jr..

What do you think of this new suit? Are you a fan or are there things that bother you?
