A new, and quite wonderful new trailer for Wonder Woman, a new look at Guardians vol.2, Ghost in the Shell and interviews about Thor Ragnarok and Logan!

New Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 Footage

Guardians of the Galaxy is coming to our planet very soon, so it is a good time to get another new glimpse at the film, featuring the coolest team in the MCU! Check it out above and find out who is the best pilot in the galaxy and how big Drax' turds really are. Yupp.

Ghost in the Shell Footage

A new look at the upcoming Ghost in the Shell movie, starring Scarlett Johansson as cyborg warrior Major has been released online and you can check it out above!

Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, “GHOST IN THE SHELL” follows the Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.

New Full Wonder Woman Trailer

WB and DC Comics released another look at the Wonder Woman movie, that will star Gal Gadot as the most well know female superhero ever! Check out the trailer above! To be honest, I haven't watched it to remain as unspoiled as I can be (as I am a HUGE DC nerd), but I have heard it is one of the coolest trailers in a while and doesn't really spoil anything major, so it should be a save look! Can't wait for this one, people!

Thor Ragnarok Interview

Thor Ragnarok Interview

Thor Ragnarok released a first image with the thunder god's new look last week, which you can see above. He looks rather different, which the whole production seems to be as well. Director Taika Waititi is best known for his comedic genius in movies like What We Do In The Shadows and TV series Flight of the Conchords, so a lot of fans are curious if the third Thor movie will be a straight up comedy. Waititi talked about that now in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly:

"It’s not really a comedy. There are some really great moments we’re going to have in the film. Knowing that it was Bruce Banner and Thor on kind of a road trip journey, that lends itself to a tone because those guys are both really funny. I was like you gotta exploit Chris’ comic abilities. He’s so good and underutilized in that department. He’s legitimately one of the funniest things in this film."

"Big Trouble in Little China was one of those films where Jack Burton is a buffoon but he’s lovable and you’re with him the entire way. I thought Thor has got to be the one you want to be with in every scene."

Waititi also talked briefly about the inclusion of Hulk in the movie and how the character will work in Thor's world:

"He’s much more of a character than the green rage machine you’ve seen in the Avengers movies. He’s got a swagger. He’s like a god."

I am a huge fan of the first Thor films (flawed as they might be) and also of director Waititi, so I really hope this turns out to be the case of "two different tastes that go great together". I am very excited to find out!

Why Was Caliban In Logan And X-Men Apocalypse?

Why Was Caliban In Logan And X-Men Apocalypse?

James Mangold superhoer masterpiece Logan has been in theatres a few weeks now and broke all our hearts with its relentlessness and brave storytelling choices. While most people still talk about X-23, Logan or Xavier, the inclusion of lesser known mutant Caliban (played to perfection by Stephen Merchant) into the movie has been a head scratcher for some fans, who have seen the same character just recently, played by another actor in Bryan Singer's X-Men Apocalypse. Logan director James Mangold now talked a little bit about that in an interview with Nerdist.

“It’s a funny, messy story of how so often these things are not as coordinated as everyone thinks. I actually had written him into our movie, and they didn’t know [he was] in Apocalypse, and then they kind of wrote it in their movie, and they cast someone in their movie and I had not seen it and was working away on mine.”

I actually like that the character is in both films, because seeing caliban working with the good guys in Logan, after being a straight up villain in Apocalypse, which was set 40 years earlier, made a lot of sense for me and his whole role a lot deeper. To me this was a happy accident that actually worked out well.
