New The Matrix Resurrections Trailer

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Warner Bros. just released a new trailer for The Matrix Resurrections. I’m cautiously optimistic. The trailers have been intriguing, but we’ve been burned so many times before by shitty movies with great trailers. The Matrix is a classic and I’m a big advocate for The Matrix Reloaded. I’d even goi as far to say that I love The Matrix Reloaded. Not to mention The Animatrix which is pretty fucking metal. There’s potential here, that’s for sure. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the filmmakers can tap into the power of The One and pull another sci-fi masterpiece out of their ass. Crazier things have happened…

MORE NEWS FROM SDCC 2019

The ARROWVERSE & Crisis On Infinite Earths –

DC’s Arrowverse panels had a lot of cool details and trailers from the upcoming seasons of each show. Perhaps more excitingly, we got some more info on their EPIC crossover: Crisis On Infinite Earths…

Considering this crossover will be dealing with The Multiverse and Parallel Realities, it comes as no surprise that we will be seeing different versions of characters we already know, but in different roles. In addition to hearing that Burt Ward will be making a cameo as Robin from another reality, we also learned that Brandon Routh who plays Ray Palmer on Legends Of Tomorrow will be taking on an exciting new role in the crossover. Routh famously played Superman in Bryan Singer’s 2006 Superman Returns, in the crossover he’ll also be playing Superman once again for Crisis On Infinite Earths, but not just any Superman, Kingdom Come Superman! It hasn’t been confirmed if Ray AKA The Atom and this version of Superman will actually meet face to face, but that would be pretty damn cool.

Routh is wearing a T-Shirt with the Kingdom Come Superman symbol

Kingdom Come is a classic Justice League story written by Mark Waid with art by Alex Ross, about the twilight of the classic DC heroes and the new, violent generation of meta-humans who are trying to replace them. Featuring this older, world weary version of Superman into the crossover is very exciting. It’s also been confirmed that Tyler Hoechlin will be returning as Clark Kent/Superman and Jon Cryer will be returning as Lex Luthor.

We also got what may be our first look at THE BIG BAD of Crisis On Infinite Earths, The Anti-Monitor with this concept art that popped up during Comic-Con…

We also got these pictures of new looks for Diggle and Laurel on Arrow.

Finally, here’s a better look at Supergirl’s cool new uniform from her upcoming season…

SDCC 2019!!! Continuing Coverage….

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

As this year’s San Diego Comic-Con continues, breaking news, trailers, announcements, and other cool reveals keep on blowing minds of fans everywhere! But it can be a pain in the ass trying to find all the SDCC news. So keep it HERE at World’s Best Media, where you can find all of the up to the minuet info, you want the most! We’ll be updating this page all weekend with the breaking news and content that can’t be missed from SDCC 2019!

WOW. We got some killer stuff today! At the Marvel Studios panel, Kevin Feige did not disappoint. He rolled out the next 2 years of Marvel’s PHASE 4 slate, which will consist of 10 projects. They include both theatrical releases and projects to be released on Disney +. Plus, Feige offers up some tantalizing hints on MCU projects coming after the slate of shows and films. It’s all pretty exciting, so I’m going to break it down for you right here…

MARVEL STUDIOS PHASE 4 (The Next 2 Years)

The EternalsRelease date 11/6/20

Dir. – Chloe Zhao

Staring – Angelina Jolie as Thena , Richard Madden as Ikaris. The cast also includes Selma Hayek.

The story of the film, broadly speaking, follows The Eternals, a race of aliens imbued with power and immortality by The Celestials (some of the most powerful beings in the existence of The Marvel Universe). The Eternals are charged with protecting Earth and humanity from The Deviants, an evil, monstrous mirror race of The Eternals. To use a poor analogy. Think of The Eternals and Angels and The Deviants as Demons.

The Flacon and The Winter Soldier Release Date – Fall 2020 on Disney +

Starring – Anthony Makie as The Falcon/Captain America, Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier, and Daniel Bruhl returning as Baron Helmut Zemo ( This time he WILL be getting the classic Baron Zemo mask!)

As expected, this series will see Anthony Mackie don his really cool Captain America uniform which is a combination of The Falcon in Captain America’s classic look. So it seems like this series will be about Sam Wilson adjusting to this great weight on his shoulders and Bucky Barnes being with him along the way, like he was with Steve Rogers. All the while having to deal with Baron Zemo not much more than that is known at this time. But I can’t wait for this one, I think it’s going to be really cool.

Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings – Release Date 2/12/2021

Dir. Denton Daniel Cretton

Starring – Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, Tony Leung as The REAL Mandarin

Not much is know about the story at this time. Shang-Chi is the greatest martial artist in the world. He’s a hero and adventurer. In the comics his father was the criminal mastermind Fu Manchu. I can see for racial reasons why Marvel wouldn’t want to use that character. So I strongly suspect that The Mandarin will be Shang-Chi’s father in this movie. A lot of the character drama from Shang-Chi’s story comes from the pain he feels being a hero who wants to do the right thing, when his father is one of the greatest villains in the world. Despite the fact that The Mandarin was smoke and mirrors in Iron Man 3, it’s been strongly suggested that a “real” Mandarin is out there. For several years, Marvel would release fun short films as an extra feature on the Blu-Rays for their movies. The last one Marvel produced was on the Blu-Ray for Thor: The Dark World and called “All Hail The King”. In that short film, it’s revealed that Aldrich Killian co-opted much of his bullshit Mandarin story from some real sources and it turns out that The Mandarin is a very real, very dangerous guy, who is very pissed that his name had been dragged through the mud in Iron Man 3. The film ends with one of The TRUE Mandarin’s disciples, breaking Trevor Slattery (played by Ben Kingsley) out of prison, the actor who played the fake Mandarin for Aldrich Killian, so he can face justice at the hands of the real Mandarin. So, we’ve known for a while that the real Mandarin was out there and it was only a matter of time before we see him somewhere in The MCU. This is the perfect project to use him in. It’s also worth pointing out that the terrorist group who originally kidnapped Tony Stark in the very first Iron Man movie was called The Ten Rings.

WandaVision – Release Date Spring 2021 on Disney +

Starring – Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Teyonah Paris as adult Monica Rambeau (the daughter of Carol’s best friend in Captain Marvel)

For some reason people seem to be down on this project, but I think it has the potential to be something special. Kevin Feige he himself has said that this series is very strange. One of the more interesting things about Wanda maxim off is her exponentially growing power and her increased mental stability. Panel confirmed that this series takes place after endgame. Which makes me wonder, have a wonders abilities progressed to the point where she can resurrect vision, as she eventually has the power to do in the comics at great cost.

LOKI – Release Date Spring 2021 Disney +

Starring – Tom Hiddleston as Loki

As we saw in endgame, low-key managed to get away with the space stone. Apparently this show will be a trip through history and Loki is very long life. I’ve heard it described is almost something like quantum leap. It appears that it will involve low-key mixing it up at important historical events with famous historical figures. Which sounds like a whole Lotta fucking fun. I am in.

Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness – Release Date 5/7/2021

Dir. Scott Derrickson

Starring – Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff

OK, this is the movie I’ve been fucking waiting for. According to director Scott Derrickson, this will be Marvel’s first “scary movie“. Which is about as close as you can get to saying you’re going to do a horror movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you don’t think that’s awesome, there’s something fucking wrong with you. Doctor Strange was a great origin movie and in Infinity War and Endgame, we got to see a lot of cool shit from Doctor Strange and what he’s capable of. I can’t wait to see how his powers have progressed. It’s important to note that this director knows how to do a really creepy, disquieting, fucked up movie. Hopefully Marvel will let him embrace that. It’s also really interesting to see Scarlet Witch in this movie, though not completely surprising, because in the comics it’s been suggested multiple times that her powers are magic-based. Maybe she will turn to Doctor Strange after something that happened in WandaVision? Who knows. But I can’t wait for this one! The more Doctor Strange the better!

Hawkeye– Release Date Fall 2021 on Disney +

Starring – Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye

This looks like it may be more of a limited series than some of the other shows on Disney +, but it will apparently focus on Clint Barton training a new protégé, a girl named Kate Bishop, making her first MCU appearance. In the comic books, after years of training with Clint Barton and other superheroes, Kate is viewed more as a hero in her own right, rather than simply being Clint’s sidekick. In fact, both Cling and Kate both go by. I know it can be confusing, but hey that’s those crazy comics for, ya! The series will also explore Clint’s time as Ronin in the wake of Thanos’ decimation. This show looks like it’s heavily borrowing from the fantastic Hawkeye comic book run by writer Matt Fraction and Artist David Aja.

Thor: Love and Thunder – Release Date 11/5/2021

Dir. Taika Waititi

Starrring – Chris Hemsworth as Thor/Odinson, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Thor

So I love the direction they’re going in with this new movie. First of all, I was thrilled another Thor film was being made, and they were bringing back the same director: Taika Waititi, who gave us the fantastic Thor: Ragnarok. But it also seems like the story will be largely taking it’s cues from the recent and ongoing Thor comic book run by writer Jason Aaron. Which is a good thing, because it’s probably one of the best Thor stories that I’ve ever read.

In that story, due to a complicated series of events, Thor is no longer worthy of wielding his mighty hammer; Mijonir. Meanwhile, Jane Foster has been fighting her own battles, against the cancer that has ravaged her body. In this story, a Parliament of World’s is formed. Like a U.N. for The Ten Realms, set up to keep the peace throughout the realms and it’s people. Jane is the representative from Midgard, so even though she and Thor are no longer dating, she spends quite a bit of time in new Asgard and has made some wonderful new friends in the process. The Parliament meets on New Asgard (a shadow of Asgard’s glory days) which resides on Earth’s Moon. As a sidenote, at this point Asgard has taken up residence on an area near what they called the “Blue Area” of the moon. It’s the only place on the moon that perfectly simulates Earth’s pressure, gravity, temperature , and most importantly, you can breathe there.

So, while on a walk through the blue area of the moon, contemplating her depressing situation, Jane Foster comes across Mijonir and attempts to lift Thor’s legendary hammer (after Thor has spent months attempting to lift it unsuccessfully) and as the inscription says, “whosoever holds this hammer, should they be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor“ At which point Jane’s shocked to see herself turned into a beautiful, god-like, female version of Thor. She is unrecognizable as Jane Foster. Now I can already hear some of the assholes on the Internet complaining that a woman will be, in a way, playing Thor. First of all, in the comics, this is one of the best Thor stories they have done in years. A great story is simply a great story. Also, this isn’t just a story about Jane Foster. It’s also is a very profound story about Asgard and Thor himself.

So for you idiots thinking Thor is going to get kicked to the wayside because of some bullshit liberal agenda…relax. The movies going to be great. I am really thrilled to see Marvel is taking some interesting chances with their with their projects. I have a few guesses, but I can’t wait to see who the villain will be in this movie. Gorr The God Butcher, perhaps? We can only hope!

Black Widow – Release Date 5/1/2020

Dir. Cate Shortland

Starring – Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Rachel Weiss and David Harbour appearing in unknown rolls

This movie will be a prequel taking place before Captain America: Civil War. It will feature such classic Marvel bad guys as Taskmaster, who I’m very excited to see. Natasha also faces off against the “evil Black Widow”, Yelena, another product of The Red Room Program. This woman is Natasha if Hawkeye never showed her a better way to live and became here friend. Yelena is a vicious, manipulative killer, a mirror image of what Natasha could have become. This will be the next Marvel movie we have to look forward to. I think this is a long time coming. Black Widow is more than capable of carrying her own film. It will be really cool to see how they incorporate this into some other events in a MCU history.

Before things wrapped up, Kevin Feige had one more surprise for the crowd. After listing all of these projects, he brought out, the fantastic actor, Mahershala Ali, and announced Ali will be playing Blade in an upcoming movie, introduce The Day Walker to the MCU. No release date has been announced . That is pretty fucking cool nonetheless. Ali is a fantastic actor. He’s perfect for this role. There have been rumblings of Blade in the MCU for a few years now ( even some suggesting Wesley Snipes would return ) so it’s going to be really exciting to see what they do with the character.

Feige wrapped things up by explaining this is what they have in production that will be hitting theatres and screens over the next 2 years. Two years is a lot shorter than any of the previous phases of the MCU, which makes me think that this is just the first half of Phase 4 and more announcements will be made along the way. However, he closed things out by saying Guardians Vol.3, Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, and (FUCK YES) The Fantastic Four!!! will be coming soon after these projects. He had to drive the crowd wild by mentioning one more thing coming soon, one word:“Mutants.” So that was the Marvel Studios presentation this year. It certainly did not disappoint.

NYCC 2018! Trailers Galore!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

This weekend was the New York Comic-Con. Probably the second largest Comic-Con in the world after the San Diego Comic-Con. Much like SDCC, this Con premiered some very cool trailers. Though there were a few interesting movie trailers, most of the big trailers for NYCC were for shows on TV or streaming services. Below I’ve rounded up all of my favorites so you don’t have to go looking yourself! It’s your best stop for all the coolest trailers! Enjoy!

Good Omens (Amazon Prime)

A3100705-80EB-4950-9EEC-814DBE5EB911

This one caught me by surprise and is probably my favorite trailer of the Con. Good Omens was a fantasy/comedy novel written by Neil Gaiman (American Gods, The Sandman) and Terry Pratchett and published in 1990. For years people have tried turning the novel into a movie, most notably director Terry Gilliam. Television being what it is now, where it’s able to bring big screen production values, casting, and talent to long form story telling, Amazon Prime seems perfect for Good Omens. With a cast that includes Michael Sheen, David Tennant, and Jon Hamm, Good Omens has just become one of my most anticipated television projects in 2019.

 

American Gods Season 2 (Starz)

264B4730-B147-402E-B200-1346A2399A96

Speaking of Neil Gaiman, we also got our first look at Season 2 of American Gods. Season 1 was pretty damn great, but by no means perfect. I’m a little concerned about some behind the scenes issues the show has had. They changed Showrunners between seasons, for example.  However, a lot of shows go through growing pains and this trailer looks like they’ve kicked things up a notch for Season 2. I definitely recommend checking out Season 1 if you haven’t already.

 

 

Daredevil Season 3 (Netflix)

E3094FB5-FB0E-4725-AC18-AB61CD779D9A

Now we’re talking! We have two trailers here. There have already been a few trailers for Daredevil Season 3, but this is the first real story trailer we’ve seen for this season. It looks to be largely borrowing from the graphic novels “Born Again” and “Guardian Devil”. However, the Showrunner has said that the season is its own unique tale while still borrowing elements from those classic stories.

29764610-8523-4061-B23C-29BB7A5DEA38

This is a quick character trailer focusing on Bullseye! I’ve been waiting since Season 1 for them to introduce this villain. Bullseye is probably Matt Murdock’s greatest rival besides Wilson Fisk. I can’t wait to see The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen face off against the Assassin Who Never Misses. October 19th can’t come soon enough.

 

 

The Boys (Amazon Prime)

52CA42AF-5564-4A38-820B-06AC90A926EE

E1D47601-162E-424C-AFA9-BB2F6DF274D9

The Boys is based on a comic book by writer Garth Ennis (the creator of Preacher) and artist Darick Robertson. It’s an extremely fucked up, but fantastic story about a group of CIA black ops psychos who “deal” with out of control superheroes. And when is say “deal” I mean brutally fucking kill. The cast is certainly good and it looks like Amazon Prime is really upping their game.

 

Aquaman

994ECC96-029C-4F3D-A691-2552E3C7F910

Finally, we have an extended look at Aquaman. I think this looks fantastic and I hope they knock it out of the park. I LOVE Black Manta’s costume and Aquaman’s more classic look that we see in the comics. James Wan is a spectacular and versatile director. This definitely has the potential to be something truly unique in the genre. Aquaman opens on 12/21.

 

Thanks for reading and watching!

COMIC-CON 2018 Final Coverage! UPDATED

 

Arrow season 7 Trailer

Years ago there was a script for a Green Arrow movie called Supermax that involved Green Arrow being arrested, framed for murder, and being sent to a Supermax prison. There would be cameos from big DC villains like Lex Luthor and The Joker,  but the story would involve Oliver Queen having to team up with some of the DC’s B- list villains to escape and clear his name. The way Arrow ended season six made me think they may use story elements from this canceled film. After seeing characters like Bronze Tiger and Brick locked up in the same prison with Oliver, I think at least part of the season will go in that direction. Take a little look:

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 4:

Right now Legends of Tomorrow is probably my favorite of the Arrowverse DC shows. It’s a lot of fun, it has great characters. The big draw for me this year is John Constantine is finally becoming a series regular on one of these shows. I think Constantine fits in perfectly with the rest of the Legends, especially after his excellent appearances in season 3. Check out the season 4 trailer below:

The Flash season 5:

There was a time when The Flash was by far one of my favorite shows on television, but sadly those days are long behind us. The show has a lot to make up for after what is without a doubt it’s worst season last year. But the trailer for season five has promise and I’m very curious to see who that villain is at the end.

Supernatural season 14

C’mon guys, did you really think I wasn’t going to included something from Supernatural throughout my Comic-Con coverage? I love this show!

 

The Batman Who Laughs miniseries by Scott Snyder & Jock

A3208501-2100-4717-8D54-2AECAEEA3745

Acclaimed DC Comics writer Scott Snyder and artist Jock will be bringing us a new miniseries that brings Snyder back to his horror roots! This November they’ll be putting out a new story following one of the breakout characters from Dark Nights: Metal, The Batman Who Laughs. That’s a very winning writer, artist, character combo, so I know I’ll be reading.

DC Comics has announced that legendary writer Grant Morrison will be taking over the Green Lantern book with artist Liam Sharp. The book will star Hal Jordan and focus on the idea of Hal Jordan as a “Space Cop”, with the story being like a space/sci-fi police procedural as opposed to the universe ending space epics of Geoff Johns’ run. DC has release some art from the new series which you can check out below.

The animated series Star War: The Clone Wars has always had a big fan base. So many were dissapointed when the show was cancelled before the story could be finished. But today Disney/Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: The Clone Wars is returning! Some of the series most believed characters are returning with it. Check out the trailer here!

UPDATE:

Spider-Man for PS4 Story Trailer

Sony has released a trailer for their highly anticipated PS4 game, Spider-Man and it is AMAZING.  Spider-Man comes out on PS4 on 9/7/18. Take a look…

UPDATED:

The Walking Dead Season 9 Trailer

I have a love hate relationship with The Walking Dead. When the series started, I thought it was one of the best shows on TV, but signs of trouble started as early as season 2. As of last season I swore I’d never watch the show again. The show’s terrible writing constantly resorts to cheap tricks to keep the audience invested, lazy filler writing, and unnecessarily drawn out storylines. I have a theory that with any given season of The Walking Dead, all you really need to watch are the season premiere, the mid-season finale, the mid-season premiere, and the season finale. Everything else is filler. Having said all that, I think this is an intriguing trailer and we’ll have to see if I give in and watch the new season which premiers on October 10th. It’s also notable that this is Andrew Lincoln’s last season as Rick, the shows main character, so it may be intersting to see how this plays out on TV. Especially when Rick is alive and well in the comics. Check out the trailer below:

Young Justice: Outsider Trailer

I was a massive fan of this show, so i was ecstatic when it was announced that the series would be returning for a 3rd season. This is one of the big ones for me and I love what I’ve seen so far…

Iron Fist: Season 2 Teaser

Iron Fist was definitely off to a rocky start in it’s first season, but his character is on the upswing. He improved in The Defenders and we got by far the best version of the character yet when he teamed up with his old buddy Luke in Luke Cage Season 2. I wish this was Season 3 of Daredevil though. Because Iron Fist Season 2 premiers September 7th, it’s unlikely we’ll see a 4th Marvel Netflix show before the end of the year. However, with Typhoid Mary (played by Alice Eve), Davos AKA The Steel Serpent, and the show moving forward with Daughters of The Dragon, I’m cautiously optimistic that Season 2 could be the Iron Fist series we’ve all been waiting for.

Below is some cool artwork that accompanied the Season 2 announcement …

UPDATED:

Batman: Three Jokers

Famed DC Comics creator Geoff Johns has two big comic book projects that received some attention at one of Comic-Con’s DC Comics panels. First, is the announcement of Batman: Three Jokers. This is a project that was first teased a few years ago during the Justice League story arc The Darseid War in which Batman cryptically found out that there were in fact “three Jokers“. There’s been a lot of speculation as to what that means exactly, but apparently the book will focus on how The Joker (or Jokers?) has affected the lives of Barbara Gordon, Jason Todd, and Bruce Wayne specifically. There’s no official release date but the three issue miniseries will be drawn by Jason Fabok and debut later this year. This project has me nervous for a few reasons. First and foremost being, that under no circumstances should there be a DEFINITIVE Joker origin. By all means, hint and tease possibilities. Stories like The Killing Joke, Mask of The Phantasm, and Endgame have all alluded to POSSIBLE  origins and backgrounds, but nothing definitive. One of the coolest aspects of The Joker is that we have no fucking idea who he is. Outside of rumors or maybes it needs to stay that way. My other cause for concern, surprisingly is Geoff Johns himself. He’s easily one of my favorite and the best writers in the history of comics. But as he says himself, this is his first crack at writing a solo Batman story in continuity (his only other solo Batman work is Batman: Earth One).  Despite his undeniable genius at writing almost any other DC character, I often find myself disliking his portrayal of Batman. When he’s written Batman in team books or events, I feel he often writes the character in ways that ring false. He’s completely unlike every other character John’s has taken a crack at and I feel Batman’s the one DC character John’s doesn’t really understand. I don’t want a writer, even one as indisputably brilliant as Geoff Johns, who seems to lack a fundamental understanding of The Dark Knight, writing one of the most important Batman stories ever told. Hopefully I’m proven woefully wrong.792513D5-B6DA-4B41-9E3F-D0093928D574

Next we have a much lighter book, Geoff  Johns is returning to SHAZAM! this November. Dale Eaglesham is set to draw the monthly series

UPDATED (7/21):

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

I enjoyed the first Fantastic Beasts movie, but I hated the reveal of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald (especially when they already had Colin Farrell which would have been an infinitely better choice). I will say it looks like Depp he’s doing something that I thought was impossible… reigning it in. He seems to be giving a much more subdued performance here and from the trailer I’m intrigued. I love the idea that this war in the wizard world made Dumbledore the famous wizard that he is. Plus, a world war of wizards during our World War II just sounds like a cool fucking story. I don’t want to forget to say Jude Law is perfectly cast as young Dumbledore. So despite my issues I’ll definitely be checking this one out. I have the trailer right here :
