Guardians of the Galaxy is rapidly becoming my most anticipated film of the year (and will probably take the top slot once Godzilla is released). Everything about it just seems so refreshing and new compared to the rest of the Marvel universe, and after seeing the tone and expectations change quite a bit in Captain America: The Winter Soldier I think it’s safe to say that Guardians will deliver on the promised originality. Everything we’ve seen so far as well seems to reaffirm it, such as these new photos shot during production of the film. Hit the jump to check them out.
The Captain America movies have both had stellar marketing campaigns so far, and while these three character posters for Captain America: The Winter Soldier aren’t the most artistic anyone has ever seen they still look quite nice. Hit the jump to see the new international posters.
Hot on the heels of Joss Whedon’s confirmation that he’ll be returning to write and direct The Avengers 2, Variety is now reporting that Warner Bros. has approached Ben Affleck to helm Justice League. Hit the jump for all the details.
I’d like to take a minute to relay a personal message to Warner Bros. I know you guys are rushing to get Justice League done already. You’re doing the wrong thing. If I’m more excited about CG artist Daniel Araya’s imaginary, for-fun Pixar-styled Justice League production stills than your actual in-development feature, something is wrong. Slow it down, and take the time to do it well.
That being said, these are some seriously awesome CG concepts by Araya, and they do a wonderful job of showing what could have been in Pixar decided to do a Justice League feature. Hit the jump to check it out.
With the immense success of The Avengers for Marvel, it was only a matter of time until DC and Warner Bros. got their acts together and made some serious attempts at building a film universe. They’ve already (kind of) started with Green Lantern, which sort of fizzled at the box office and really didn’t hint at a larger universe. Looks like DC and Warner Bros. are game to try again, though. We’ve already known a Flash movie was in the works and today we have some comments from Warner Bros. about the state of the Wonder Woman and Justice League films. Hit the jump to read on.
I love it when a fan film comes along that is so damn good it makes you forget that the majority of them are worthless piles of garbage. This film, directed by Olan Rogers, starts up with a message Dr. Light recorded 100 years ago then gets into a pretty cool fight sequence between X and Protoman. Check it out above.
After watching this, it’s become abundantly clear that I really should be ashamed to have been so proud of my awesome bunny shadow puppet as a child. This Spanish-language adaptation was done by Oscar Andrés Rodríguez and a bunch of his classmates and is exactly as disturbing as you’d expect it to be. Enjoy.
