DC23 EXPO Announcement Recap!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

This weekend, running from August 23 to 25th, is Disney’s D23 expo. It’s a massive annual event put on by Disney, where they make announcements regarding their upcoming projects. Considering that Disney owns Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, The Simpsons and hell of a lot more, fans were expecting some big news. Particularly, Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney +. In some ways D23 is kind of like Comic-Con. With all of the spectacular, aforementioned properties that fall under Disney’s umbrella, D23 is a huge event for genre entertainment. This is something fans, as well as writers who cover this type news online (like  myself), look forward to every year. Disney often uses this time to make unexpected and surprising announcements and this year they certainly didn’t disappoint!

MARVEL:

MOVIES

BLACK WIDOW (Opens in theatres 5/1/2020)

New First Look Poster!

  In addition to the cool new poster for the film, Marvel also debuted the first footage from their upcoming Black Widow solo movie (which unfortunately has not been leaked online… yet) The footage shows is an action sequence with Natasha fighting Yelena Belova (a character who’s also held the mantle of Black Widow). Like Natasha, Yelena was a product of Russia’s Red Room program, turning young women into super spies. But unlike Natasha, she never found any kind of redemption and became the living weapon her masters wanted her to be. It was also confirmed that David Harbour will be playing Red Guardian in this film, essentially Russia’s version of Captain America. Natasha will also have to contend with the formidable villain, Taskmaster, all the while sporting a cool looking new, white costume. Check out some other cool stuff we have posted below, like this concept art featuring Natasha squaring off against Taskmamster, photos of her new, white uniform on display…

THE ETERNALS (Opens 11/6/2020)

  Of all the Marvel movies that have been announced for so far for Phase 4 this is the one think has the potential to be very cool and unique. The Eternals are a race of immortal superhuman beings created by cosmic, godlike beings called The Celestials. The Eternals protect humanity from their evil counterparts, The Deviants. The Eternals are actually the beings that humanity based the Greek gods upon. Because of their in mortality, they’re still around today. Many of whom live among regular people. The cast includes Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, and Selma Hayek.

A few days ago it was revealed that Kit Harington a.k.a. Jon Snow from Game of Thrones was joining the MCU in an undiscloosed role. Now we know exactly who he’s playing and what film he’s appearing in: Harington will be playing Dean Whitman a.k.a. The Black Knight in The Eternals.

The Black Knight

The Black Knight is a long time Avenger who’s a direct descendant of one King Arthur’s Knights of the Roundtable. He fights with a sword called The Ebony Blade forged by Merlin himself. When he doesn’t have The Ebony Blade have he basically just uses a lightsaber (seriously). He’s an expert fighter on par with Hawkeye or Black Widow and will occasionally have enhanced strength, speed, and agility, depending on the story you’re reading. He’s actually a pretty cool Avenger. You can check out the awesome concept art by BossLogic of Harrington as The Black Knight below.

Kit Harrington as Dane Whitman, The Black Knight

He’s most often linked to The Eternals through the character Sersi played by Gemma Chan. Sersi and Whitman have been a couple at various points in their comic book history.

BLACK PANTHER 2 (Opens 5/6/2022)

  We all knew it was coming, but it’s still nice to have a release date. Kevin Feige briefly brought returning Black Panther director Ryan Coogler out on stage to announce the film’s official release date May 6th 2022.

No details on plot yet, but a lot of fans, myself included, want to see T’Challa go up against Namor The King of Atlantis. Imagine it: A war between two super advanced countries that most of the word didn’t even know existed with the monarchs of each nation being super powered badasses. It would be fucking sick! I honestly think there’s a good chance that we’ll see some version of that concept for Black Panther 2. Below I have some pictures depicting Namor and T’Challa’s rivalry and an awesome concept art poster from artist BossLogic 

TV SERIES

THE FALCON and The WINTER SOLDIER (Fall 2020 on DISNEY+)

   There’s not that much new info on The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, but their were a few interesting tidbits. Kevin Feige brought two actors onstage. First, Emily VanCamp, to confirm that she’s returning as Sharon Carter AKA Agent 13 was (Peggy Carter’s niece). Then he introduced Wyatt Russell, who’s playing John Walker AKA U.S. Agent. In the comics U.S. Agent was conceived as a replacement for Captain America when he was presumed dead, but still frozen in the ice. I’m pretty sure he eventually goes crazy because pretty much anyone whose tried to duplicate Dr. Erskine’s super soldier formula has had things go sideways on them, usually to horrific results.

Sam Wilson as Captain America battling U.S. Agent

What I like about the casts and these characters is that this really feels like Captain America 4. When Captain America was killed in the comics, the book continued with characters like The Falcon, Bucky, and Agent 13 continuing Cap’s mission. Villains like Baron Zemo (who’s returning for this series) and USAgent played prominent roles. Steve Rogers may have been gone, but these were some of the best Captain America stories ever. If the show is taking inspiration from the comics, then the series is heading in the right direction. Below, you can see a leaked for photo of a promo poster for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, with Sam and Bucky both sporting new looks.

WANDAVISION  (Spring 2021 on Disney+)

   We still know very little about the upcoming WandaVison series on Disney+. All we’ve really heard, is that the show is a “mix between a sitcom and a superhero action epic”. Which, on the surface, seems like a weird direction for them to go in. Well, I think the series is going to be even weirder than Marvel has led us to believe. First take a look at this promo poster released for the series:

After seeing this poster for the show, I think I have a pretty good idea of what’s going on. Anyone who’s been paying attention to Scarlett Witch over the last several movies, probably noticed that with each subsequent film, she gets more and more powerful. Hell, in Endgame she nearly ripped Thanos apart on her own. She probably would’ve killed him if he didn’t order his ship to start fire bombing the battle sight. In the comics, as Wanda’s power grows, her mental and emotional state begins to deteriorate. We know that this series takes place after Endgame and Vision was seemingly killed in Infinity War. I think the image of an almost 1950s “perfect family” sitcom we see in the poster, is a new life conjured into existence by Wanda. Her powers eventually get to a point she can manipulate reality itself. So what if she resurrected The Vision and decided she wanted to have a perfect suburban life with him, straight out of a cheesy old sitcom?  The image also brings to mind the recent miniseries ,The Vision, by writer Tom King. In that story, Vision also heads to suburbia in an attempts to start a family of his own, meaning a wife, a son, and a daughter who are all androids just like himself. All I’ll say is is that things start to go very bad, very quickly for The Vision Family. I should also mention that this was one of the best comics Marvel has published in the 21st century. I wouldn’t be surprised if the series draws at least partially on the tragic stories in Wanda and Vision’s past. I have a feeling this series is going to be a lot darker than people expect. Which would make sense because apparently the events of this series lead right up into Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness co-starring Elizabeth Olsen. That film has been described as Marvel’s first horror movie. Also joining the cast are some other familiar faces, Randall Park who played Agent Woo in Ant-Man and The Wasp and Kat Denning who played Darcy in the first 2 Thor movies will both be joining the show. If I had to bet, I’d say that they are wacky neighbors or something, that are part of whatever twisted family situation is going on with Wanda and Vision. I could be completely wrong, but if I’m right this could be a very exciting and interesting way for the show to go.

WHAT IF? (Release Date N/A)

   What If? Is the first animated project made for the MCU, with a great line up of actors from The MCU returning to play their characters from the big screen. However, that doesn’t mean they’ll necessarily be playing the same version of character we know from the films. As Kevin Feige said at D23, What If ? Is “Based on a comic books series that we’ve loved for years They take a storyline that you know and change one element; and see how things could get different. Out of the 23 films that you know we’re going to make one little difference and a see how things change.” Each episode will be bookended by The Watcher (voiced by Jeffery Wright) as if he‘s presenting a What If? scenario. How seemingly small changes can have massive consequences.  The Watcher, part of an ancient race of beings whose sole purpose is to bear witness, but never interfere, great change throughout the Universe. Uatu will gaze into The Multiverse and show the vast changes that can occur in a Universe if one event is changed. Some of the stories that teased in WHAT IF? were Marvel Zombies and what if Peggy Carter became Captain America. You can see a leaked image of Peggy as Captain America below.

MS. MARVEL (Release Date N/A)

   Marvel made announcements about 3 additional shows coming to Disney+. The first being Ms. Marvel. Ms. Marvel aka Kamala Khan is a modern day Spider-Man in many ways. In fact, I think if MARVEL knew that their deal with Sony was going to fall apart as badly as it did, I think they may have saved Ms. Marvel for the big screen. There are big Spider-Man size shoes to fill in The MCU and she could be the perfect character to do it. She has a lot of the same qualities that people love about Spider-Man. She’s just a kid, a young girl in high school, trying to figure her life out. She’s not rich, she comes from a blue collar family. She’s a Pakistani-American Muslim living in Jersey City, protecting her neighborhood and beyond from any threat. She grew up idolizing the heroes of the Marvel Universe, especially Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel AKA the original Ms. Marvel. But since Carol has gone by Captain Marvel for years now, Kamala (with Carol’s blessing) became the new Ms. Marvel.

Like Spider-Man she’s trying to protect her friends and family while also following her destiny as a superhero. She also has a really cool power set, that we haven’t really seen yet. Kamala is an Inhuman whose powers are kind of like a combination of Reed Richards and Ant-Man/Giant Man. She calls one of her powers “embiggening “, it allows her to do things like make her hands into enormous fists and punch a whole bunch of bad guy across a room, she can grow 50 feet tall, she can also shrink and stretch her body in ways that even Reed Richards can’t. I was really hoping to get this character sooner rather than later. I think she is a fantastic superhero and she’s the perfect character in to include into the MCU now that, sadly, Spider-Man is gone.

SHE-HULK (Release Date N/A)

The next show announced by Marvel premiering on Disney+ is She-Hulk. This is a character fans have wanted to see on screen for a long time.

She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner. When an accident almost killed her, she needed a blood transfusion and her cousin Bruce happened to be the only person who could donate. As a result she basically turns into a female version of The Hulk in Endgame. She’s still a green, super powered, powerhouse, but she doesn’t transform back-and-forth, her proportions are much more human, and she retains her intelligence at all times. She’s also a very talented lawyer. They could make it a superhero courtroom drama, maybe? There’ve been some great comics with She-Hulk, so this has the possibility to be a really good show. Let’s hope Mark Ruffalo is up for making an appearance as her more famous cousin.

MOON KNIGHT (Release Date N/A)

The last Marvel show announced was Moon Knight. Moon Knight is often described as Marvel’s Batman. But I see him more as a combination of Daredevil and The Punisher. This character has a super weird backstory that I don’t completely understand, which should show you just how weird this is, if even I don’t get it.

Most of the time, Moon Knight is former mercenary Marc Spector, who after being cursed/gifted by the Egyptian god Khonshu (because, sure why not?) becomes a brutal vigilante stalking the streets of New York. The only problem is Marc Spector has disassociative identity disorder, or multiple personalities. He’s bat shit crazy and violent as hell. This will definitely be a grittier show more in the vein of the stuff we’ve seen from Marvel on Netflix. However it will be interesting to see if they use a Moon Knights mental health problems to say something meaningful and interesting about the mental health issues that people struggle with every day.

Check back here later, when I’ll be giving a summary of all of the Star Wars news from D23!

 Lastly, I wanted to include a few picture of the DISNEY+ interface when it launche. By now means a comprehensive look, it’ll give you a better idea of what to expect.

  Check back here at World’s Best Media for any new D23 developments. I’ll be updating this page as The Expo continues. One last thing, which D23 presentation or announcement has you most excited? Which is the biggest draw for you: Marvel or DC? Do you plan on signing up for Disney + when it launches on November 12th? Or pare you going to wait a little while for more content to be added?

PODCAST: AVENGERS:ENDGAME Review (SPOILERS)!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Holy Fuck! Avengers: Endgame is finally here! I wanna say right up front that there will be absolutely NO SPOILERS in this article. However, we go into FULL SPOILERS in our deep dive review of Avengers: Endgame on this episode of The World’s Best Podcast! My Marvel Movie companion, Paul Sr. and I had a chance to see the movie a few days early, but we wanted to wait until at least some of our listeners had a chance to see the film, before we posted this SPOILER-RIFFIC review.

 It so rare for movies to live up to the hype, but Endgame manages to surpass expectations. One of the many things fans love about comics, especially from DC and MARVEL, is the interconnected universes. You could be reading a Spider-Man comic and the X-Men or Iron Man or Daredevil would pop up. That was the ingredient that had been missing from superhero movies when the “Superhero Boom” began with movies like Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Singer’s X-Men

It seems so obvious, but it was still brilliant. I remember seeing Iron Man for the first time and being blown away that SHIELD was in the movie. It seems so small now, in retrospect, but that little addition made it feel like the Marvel Universe (It was also the first appearance of fan favorite character, Agent Phil Coulson). Then of course there’s the immortal post credits scene from the first Iron Man film, when Tony meets Nick Fury which I’ve posted here below:

The beginning…

Building off the incredible success of Iron Man and then creating 22 films that make this beautiful tapestry of a story, is mind blowing. The fact that out of the 22 films released so far, there have been so few missteps is astonishing. Even their weakest movies, and there’s only 3 or 4 like Thor: The Dark World, are pretty good or not bad at their worst. Everything else is more less gold.

The Russo Brothers, who’ve directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and now Avengers: Endgame, absolutely stuck the landing with this movie, it’s a must see. The films directed by The Russo Brothers, Joe and Anthony, aired the 4 best films in The MCU. Who would’ve thought that guys who worked on TV shows like Community would go on to tell some of the most epic stories of our generation? For the record, I loved Community.

The Infinity Stones…

I think the real hero in all of this is Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios. He was not only a massive fan of the source material, but he’d seen what mistakes other Marvel superhero films had made in the past and learned from them. So when it was time for Marvel Studios to start producing their own films, he knew what he was doing and he got the right people involved to work with them. Another huge kudos goes out to Casting Director Sarah Finn, who’s worked on almost all of the films, if not all of them. With maybe one or two exceptions out of literally hundreds, each character was a flawlessly cast. We owe a lot to her work as the reason these films came out so well.

Revelations From New Avengers: Endgame Posters & A Video On The Upcoming Film!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

  As Avengers: Endgame fast approaches, Marvel has released character posters for many of the major players in the MCU. What’s interesting about these new posters is that they confirm the death or survival of some characters whose status was left somewhat ambiguous after Avengers: Infinity War. Each poster has the tagline “Avenge The Fallen”, with the surviving characters in color and characters who were killed in “The Snap” or “The Decimation” in black and white. 

We can now definitively confirm that Valkyrie, Wong, Pepper Potts, and Happy Hogan survived The Decimation to live another day. While Shuri, sadly and surprisingly, was a victim of Thanos’ Universal genocide. 

  Marvel also released this interesting video where the head of Marvel Studios Kevin Fiege and the cast discuss Avengers: Endgame. It’s definitely worth a watch, so check it out here:

I guess we’ll see how everything shakes out as the 11 year Infinity Saga comes to a close on April 26.

The Past, Present, & Future Of The MCU…

Hi Everyone,

Paul here…

 

 After seeing Captain Marvel last week and  with Avengers: Endgame only a little more than a month away, I thought  this would be a good time to reflect on the current state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After Phase 4 officially begins with the Spider-Man: Far From Home, this is the most in the dark we’ve been about where the MCU is heading. There are some this I know I’d LOVE to see…

If there’s one image that perfectly captures of my excitement at the prospect of finally seeing X-Men and Fantastic Four in the MCU, it’s this:


Doctor Doom himself using his Iron Man-like technology and his mastery of the mystic arts to take on The Anti-God, The Devourer of Worlds…. GALACTUS!

I’ve always been more into the idea of Fantastic Four characters becoming part of the MCU than the X-Men. As you can see above, the character I’m really hoping will pop up is Victor Von Doom.

Usually before each new Phase of Marvel movies, they’ll host a big event where they unveil their upcoming films. However, due to the secrecy surrounding Avengers: Endgame, all we know are the release dates for the next several years of films, we just don’t know what movies they are. We can speculate, though.

Doctor Strange 2 directed by Scott Derrickson

Black Panther 2 and Doctor Strange 2 have officially been announced with Ryan Coogler and Scott Derrickson respectively both returning to direct and continue the stories they started in their first films. Marvel still has a lot of release dates announced without movies attached. I’m certain they know exactly what will be released there and are probably working on those movies now, we just won’t know for sure what other characters we’ll see until they’re ready to make an announcement.

Black Panther 2 directed by Ryan Coogler

I’ve always described the MCU is a big TV series with Kevin Fiege as the show runner. So when I saw he put out this video talking about the past, present, and future of Marvel, I thought it was very interesting and I wanted to include it here. You get some nice insight into the thought process behind some of Marvel’s biggest decisions. Check it out:

I think we should expect to see some big announcements in May or June as Marvel begins to roll out thier slate of movies for Phase 4. All we know is that it’s going to be very different than what’s come before, which is very exciting. In the meantime, go check out Captain Marvel and come back here after to listen to our full SPOILER review on The World’s Best Podcast .

PODCAST: Captain Marvel Review!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

5E5D407D-64BD-4C84-B96D-903BC9452818

The MCU’s Phase III has been, so far, Marvel’s best set of films yet. Phase III began with  Captain America: Civil War and will wrap up with this April’s Avengers: Endgame.  All of   Marvel’s movies have been, at the very least, solid & fun at their worst and masterpieces at the best. The current renaissance of Mavel’s flicks has largely been the result of the  creation of Marvel Studios, an independent movie studio that produces and has complete control over creative choices.  Kevin Fiege, the head of Marvel Studios, has bee a huge part of the MCU’s success. Disney bought Marvel a few years ago,  but Marvel Studios still remains independent and free to produce films in anyway they see fit.

C3779BE2-8818-40D6-8A27-61D946975503

Don’t get me wrong there are some great movies here, some of the best in Phases I & II include:

Phase I

Iron Man

Captain America: The First Avenger

Thor

The Avengers

Phase II

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Guadians of The Galaxy

Ant-Man

but they don’t compared to the level of quality and experimentation that we saw in Phase III:

Capain America: Civil War

Doctor Strange

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Thor: Ragnarok

Black Panther

Avengers: Infinity War

Ant-Man & The Wasp

Captain Marvel

That a pretty fucking great set of movies in Phase III which culminates in Endgame.  Phase IV starts with Spider-Man: Far From Home FYI.

92E2E612-CFD8-45CB-97BD-9D2A1582B99D

I’m happy  to say that Phases III has not disappointed us with Captain Marvel. This episode of The World’s Best Podcast is all about Captain Marvel.  We are doing a deep dive review of Captain Marvel with full spoilers, so we were there.

PODCAST: New GAME OF THRONES Trailer & Much More!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

73A46415-CE3D-4ABD-ABD9-86894BEF7B33

  First of all I feel I have to apologize yet again for being a little late in putting out our latest podcast. It’s been a busy month, but we try to get episodes of The World’s Best Podcast on a more or less weekly schedule at a minimum, if not more. So I really appreciate your patience with our unorthodox podcast release schedule over the last few weeks and I want to reassure you that the release schedule will be getting back to normal. As a small consolation, this week will see the release of not one, but TWO pretty great episodes of the Podcast (today’s episode and our Captain Marvel SPOILER-Filled Deep Dive Review)! I am particularly excited about our upcoming Captain Marvel episode! Not only because I am very psyched to see the movie, but some of the concepts and elements that we will see in this film, have the potential to open up so many different interesting possibilities for the MCU! Much in the same way Guardians of The Galaxy and Doctor Strange did.

4ED01082-C6DD-44FD-B59A-085A3B74D76A

   Anyway back to today’s episode! Most excitingly, HBO FINALLY dropped a full trailer for the EPIC final season of Game of Thrones premiering on April 14. I’ve posted the trailer below if you want to check it out (As if you haven’t already watched it a dozen times 😉). Needless to say, we were super excited to talk about it and we needed to do a breakdown of the trailer right away. I really dug it, the trailer was exciting and just substantive enough, without giving too much away. 

B63706B4-4E69-4968-A622-0F97044154E4

    We also discuss the trailers for Dark Phoenix and Hellboy released earlier this week, we touch upon some predictions for Captain Marvel, and sadly we wrap things up on a somber note. With a tribute to the untimely passing this week of beloved actor, Luke Perry. Who was taken from us too soon, passing away at the age of 52. Despite the sad ending, as usual we had a lot of laughs recording this episode and we think you will too! So please enjoy! Listen here or subscribe on Stitcher and iTunes:

FIRST LOOK: Avengers: Endgame!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

582FEAA1-5300-4A52-AB4F-56F473BB455C

As is so often the case, the biggest reveals from the year’s biggest movies come Toy marketing.  Avengers: Endgame is no differentWeirdly this photo is from Orville Redenbacher.  This is the best and clearest picture yet we’ve seen of (some) of the team post “The Snappening” or as it’s officially referred to at Marvel, The Decimation (which is grammatically incorrect, but sounds way cooler).

9B6F96CB-294E-40C8-B6DC-283178F05E19

Note that only the six original Avengers are shown here. The original team from the first film.  We know that Captain Marvel, Rocket, War Machine, Nebula, and Ant-man are all on the team in Avengers: Endgame. But it’s just one piece of promo art, so let’s not lose our goddamn minds. Gamespot.com had this official sysnopsis:

The Avengers will attemp to “undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.”

Oh, really? Thanks for the sysnopsis Marvel! Because I thought The Avengers were going to sit this one out!

Avengers: Endgame opens 4/26/19

Super Bowl 2019 Movie Trailers!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here..

When I watch the Super Bowl every year, my favorite thing is to see all of the cool new trailers that debut during the game. The biggest movies of the upcoming year usually reserve spots to debut teasers and trailers during the game’s commercials.  But if you have no interest in watching the game or you just want one easy place where you can find all of the coolest trailers as soon as they drop, I’ve got you covered. Instead of trying to find them all on YouTube, keep checking back to this page all night. I’ll be updating each new trailer and posting them here, live as they debut!

Enjoy the game and check back here starting at 6:40pm EST…

All right!!!! GAME TIME! Aaaand… here… we… GO!

CAPTAIN MARVEL

This looks awesome! Can’t wait! March 8th!

 

AVENGERS: ENDGAME 

Oh, Fuck Yes. Marvel is BRINGING IT tonight!

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

This looks like an absolute blast! I loved the full trailer they put out earlier this week. Johnson has charisma to spare and Statham’s the man. Not to mention Iris Elba as the super soldier villain! Someone made a great comment on YouTube saying “The next movie will have Hobbs and Shaw fighting Thanos.”

 

Alita: Battle Angel

Meh. I’d watch this, I guess. Maybe. I’ve heard mixed things. I might see it and give a review for the site. We’ll see. I think it looks kind of cool, but it also could be another Ghost In The Shell.

 

Us

This movie looks fucking HORRIFYING, in the best way. I almost shit my pants just watching the trailer! This is from Jordan Peele who gave us the excellent Get Out. I love horror movies, so this is definitely must see for me.

 

The Twilight Zone (New TV Series)

There have been a few attempts to revive this show with varying degrees of success, but  Jordan Peele’s involvement gets my hopes up. CBS ALL ACCESS is really bringing it for this Super Bowl

 

Toy Story 4

I almost missed this one because it technically aired after the game, but I wanted to make sure to include it. I’m a big believer that great stories need great endings and Toy Story 3 is one of the greediest endings to a trilogy of films of all time. So Toy Story 4  better have a damn good reason to justify its existence other than the obvious answer which is: money. Hopefully I’m wrong and it’s just the masterpiece we need to follow up one of the all-time great animated films Toy Story 3. But I doubt it.

 

Well, another Super Bowl comes to an end.  While not the best year for Super Bowl movie trailers, there were a few solid ones in there. Particularly Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. I hope you guys enjoyed my coverage of the movie trailers that played during the game and I hope you come back next year to enjoy some more of the same! Thanks for watching!
