Comic-Con: Ant-Man Logo and Test Footage shown!!

A big surprise at Marvel's Hall H panel for Iron Man 3 was the appearance of director Edgar Wright taking the stage to talk about Ant-Man! He came out and talked about the film and said he had some test footage of it and was joking that the attendees wouldn't want to see blue screens and wires. He than presented some test footage!

The footage opened with Ant-Man in a room somewhere sitting on an air conditioner vent that ended up leading to a hallway that is being guarded by some kind of agents (likely Shield). The costume is of Ant-Man is clearing a mixture of the silver age with modern day one. You see him running down the hallway and morphed into normal size and startled the guards, then went down to ant size again to punch one in the face. He kicked both the guards butts and ended the scene with that.

Wright says he has no casting announcements yet, but that should change in near future! fingers crossed for Nathan Fillion.

Here is the logo for Ant-Man

Comic-Con: Titles Announced for Thor 2 and Captain America 2!!

Along with the previous news of Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel gave us official titles for two of the other upcoming films we have known about for a long time!

Thor sequel will be titled Thor: The Dark World! Also, they announced that Zachary Levi is taking over the role of Thandrel. This is pretty big news that we all knew was rumored and now proven. The title does sound pretty cool with a pretty sweet title card.

Next up was Captain America: The Winter Soldier! The title received great applause from Hall H today because fans of the comics will recognize the title because its a big story arc where Bucky Barnes comes back for a big role. Lets hope this film will be awesome as it sounds!

Comic-Con: Godzilla Panel and Poster

A very special surprise at Warner Bros. Hall H panel today was the very awesome trailer shown for Godzilla reboot! Directed by Gareth Edwards the reboot will be pay great homage to the original Japanese films.

The trailer that was shown at SDCC included footage of a city that was demolished and we see a giant monster body in the wreckage of the city. Then we hear the classic Godzilla scream while watching something big coming out of smoke and we see from behind its Godzilla's back all scaly. Then a shot of his face! Many say the face looks like the classic Zilla but with more meat to it.

The trailer is actually just test footage, but I hear it is quite amazing!! Gareth knows what he is doing and I can't wait to see where this film will go.

Godzilla will reach land in 2014

here is the SDCC poster released today during the panel

Comic-Con: Man of Steel Panel Recap!

After that spectacular first look at Pacific Rim we were blessed with first look at footage or anything of Zack Snyder's Superman reboot film Man of Steel! Snyder is no stranger to Comic-Con or Hall H with previous films Watchmen and Sucker Punch. We were finally blessed with a trailer of Man of Steel and  new poster (below).

The trailer that was shown started with a few shots around a farm and a young Clark Kent walking towards the woods with a bag. We hear a voice over with Clark Kent, Jor-El (Russell Crowe), Pa Kent (Kevin Costner) saying something about how people will be afraid of what they don't understand.

Next comes a few quick shots of Lois Lane kissing Superman, Jor-El, and a brief look at General Zod! (Snyder still won't admit he is the main villain). Then some more shots of Clark as a kid wearing a red towel. Then a scene where he is saving a school bus that crashed. Cut's to Clark seeing the ship in the barn and even meeting Jor-El in the Fortress of Solitude. A very quick shot at The Daily Planet in an elevator. The most sought after footage of Superman flying and going through the clouds.

The best news is to expect the trailer to be released before The Dark Knight Rises on Friday!!!

Man of Steel flies into theaters on June 14, 2013

Here is the SDCC poster!

Comic-Con: FIrst Footage of Pacific Rim Screened!

The Mega 3 hour Warner Bros. panel in Hall H today is full of amazing surprises today starting the panel off with Guillmero del Toro's (GDT) baby Pacific Rim! The room was transformed into the command center with all the screens showing footage. Then we learned a lot about how the movie was being made with no motion capture because robots don't move like humans. Then the film uses a lot of practical effects.

The first clip is shown! It's basically the trailer but has the robots battling on different terrains. Than a giant monster attacking a bridge and so much more carnage! this movie is gonna be amazing and original! I can't wait to get a official trailer for the film in future.

GDT said that after Comic-Con the press for Pacific Rim will go in "radio-silence mode" for the rest of year. That blows considering everyone (including me) would love to see a trailer for this film in near future. Hey, we always might get bootleg versions still hmm!!

Pacific Rim battles into theaters on July 12, 2013

Until a trailer pops up, here is the Pacific Rim Comic-Con poster released earlier this week

Comic Con: First Look at Iron Man 3 Armor!!

Comic-Con has been in full swing for a few days now and so much information and announcements are bound to happen each day that it's been a little hard to keep up. Especially when my internet is out most of time during the worst week of all time! So I will try to get as many post in as possible and do a recap of day's biggest announcements. Bare with me on this endeavor. 

The Marvel Booth has the yearly display of the Iron Man Armor and today they surprised us with a new display of armor from Iron Man 3! The armor is a different look than what we are used too with changing the red with slight bit of gold into a mostly gold with some red in it. I can't say I'm the biggest fan of it, but it's not horrible. Check it out for yourself. 

Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3, 2013
