Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is a show I bailed on because I just wasn’t feeling it early on, and my DVR episodes were piling up. I gave the show a second chance, which I guess you’re going to have to read the rest of the review below to find out what I thought. bum bum bummmmm.
Ok, is it August 1st already? I need to see Guardians of the Galaxy already! I’m really hoping this movie is as cool and awesome as the trailers have been for it. The graphics look amazing, the dialogue is funny and the characters seem really likeable…plus it’s Marvel! I haven’t read the comics but if I like the movie, I might have to! Here’s the extended movie trailer:
Besides Captain America: The Winter Soldier being released on September 9th, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will be out on Blu-Ray and DVD as well. Hey look, a show on ABC that’s going to be on Blu-Ray! I started out watching SHIELD but midway through lost interest but heard it got better after that. I’ll probably give it another shot when this is released in September. Details about the Blu-Ray/DVD are below.
The new X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer premiered this morning, and I’m really, really hoping this movie isn’t going to suck. The trailers we have seen doesn’t look like it will but you never know, trailers can be deceiving. You get more of an idea with the plot with the trailer, plus lots of quick glimpses of the characters in the movie (in’s a lot of them!). The one thing I’m kind of iffy on is the design of the Sentinels. Didn’t even know it was them until the end. I’m definitely excited for this movie and one of the few movies I care about this Summer so I just hope it doesn’t suck.
Ok, The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer was pretty freakin’ cool! I’m officially on board with this now. I don’t know anything about the comics but this looks hilarious and awesome! The trailer premiered last night during Jimmy Kimmel Live and the trailer has plenty of things to like about it. Plus the graphics look great in it as well. I mean, did you see how well they CGIed muscles on Chris Pratt.
The sequel to Thor, Thor: The Dark World, will be released on 3D Combo Pack, Single-Disc Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand February 25th and will be available on Digital 3D and Digital HD on February 4th! The bonus features include an exclusive first look at Captain America: The Winter Soldier, never-before-seen extended and deleted scenes and some more stuff.
The teaser trailer for Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier has premiered online. That is, if you didn’t watch the teaser of the teaser of the teaser trailer the other day. The movie looks great and looks darker than the original. It also features Black Widow, Nick Fury, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Plus, Robert Redford is starring in this making this movie ten times better already! Can’t wait!
With the exponential success of the “Phase 1” or “Thank god people like our comic book movies and we’re no longer bankrupt and now we have Disney money to throw around” of the Marvel Comics movie plan, the next group of sequels and new titles starting with Iron Man 3 will kick off “Phase 2” and eventually lead towards Avengers 2 which should be the biggest movie in the entire known universe. It will be bigger than Space Jam…quote me on that. While Marvel’s plans aren’t exactly known it’s said that “Phase 2” will be more cosmic…and I don’t mean in a hippy stoner kind of way. Thor 2 or Thor: The Dark World to us comic geeks obviously has a cosmic feel to it since it takes place in Asgardian space and obviously Guardians of the Galaxy will take place out there somewhere in the galaxy possibly leading towards an Avengers 2 battle with the Mad Titan Thanos…who was born on Saturn’s moon Titan. Cosmic enough for ya?

Out of all of the solo Marvel characters out there, Deadpool was the merc with a mouth with enough smarts and balls to hold High Moon Studios (the developer of the game) hostage long enough for them to make a video game in his honor. Was a katana to the throat too much pressure for High Moon Studios to make the game that Deadpool wanted or were his dick and fart jokes motivation enough for High Moon to make the perfect game that DP wanted?
I never got a chance to see Iron Man 3 in theaters, and at this point why even bother seeing a movie unless it’s the first week. Movies come out so quickly to Blu-Ray, DVD and on-demand there’s really no need for it. I’m kind of happy about that since people in theaters are annoying and ticket prices are pricey (well at least after 12pm). Iron Man 3 made a ton of money and it looked like a lot of fun. Based on the reviews from friends, it sounds like it was better than the second movie, which isn’t saying much since that was quite mediocre. Anywhoooo, the movie will be out September 3rd on HD Digital/HD Digital 3D (whatever that is) and then the Blu-Ray/DVD will be out on September 23rd via Marvel.

“Some destinies are chosen. Fight alongside or against the X-Men based on the choices you make.” That’s the tagline on the box of X-Men Destiny. For the first time that I can recall in comic book video games you can take to the street and go up against the X-Men as the Brotherhood. Of course, I sided with the X-men but just having the opportunity to choose your side and thus your destiny is a unique selling point for this game.
