Trailer and Poster for 2 Guns released!

A lot of comic book adaptations come and go, with a few worthy of a good cast and story. 2 Guns is looking to be one of those movies coming out soon. The fantastic duo cast of Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, with the great story will for sure make this a must see.

For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down.

When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Trench and Stigman are suddenly disavowed by their superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.

2 Guns shoots into theaters on August 2nd

Ant-Man Test Footage Leaked Online!

Last year at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, director Edgar Wright showed some apparently awesome test footage (it is, I can vouch for it now), and we who couldn't attend didn't get a chance to see it. That is changed now! Yesterday the footage was leaked online after they screened it again over in the UK at "The Best of BUG" event. I don't know what that is exactly,but that is besides the point of the story. The big thing is someone videotaped the footage and posted it online for us all to see. Disney has made it very clear they don't want it online by taking it down everywhere by today….well almost everywhere that is. I have found a link that works!! (for now).

Video is after jump. Make sure to check out it is awesome!

Top 10 Best Comic Book Cartoon TV Shows of All-Time

We all love our cartoons when we are young and even older and even older. The ones that tend to stick with us even after we get "too old" for Saturday morning cartoons are superhero themed ones. Particularly ones based off of comic books. So I have complied a list of what I consider the beset tv shows based off comic books. The range is big and a few are highly predictable, but they are all truly great for separate reasons.

The Batman (2004-2008)

The Batman is a series that I despised when I first saw it because 1. It wasn’t Batman The Animated Series 2. It wasn’t in the DC Animated Universe. After watching the first episode, I was instantly hooked! Who Knew? This show changed the way animated cartoons were done in the DC/WB area of animation and it brought to screen great villains and great redone legendary villains like The Penguin and The Joker and Heroes. They were just fun and the younger Bruce Wayne was great with adding Robin and Batgirl than doing Justice League in final season. Bringing back some DC Animated Universe (DCAU) Favs to voice their characters again. Gave me a soft spot for this series. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles aka TMNT (2003-2009)

Don’t get me wrong, I love the original 80s version for what it is..but...the series in TMNT fan eyes is lackluster and too childish. Than came the 2003 series and it was way different and more adult. Still not as adult as comic, but it gave us funny one-liners and great action with a cool shredder. The series had cool seasons and even went into the future. It just covered so much of the turtles world.The best part was the series finale/tv film that combined all the different series into one great tv movie. TMNT does have a new series that is growing on me nicely, it gets the humor spot on. 

Spider-Man: The Animated Series (1994-1998)

Here is the longest running series based on Spider-Man and 2nd longest Marvel series period. Fox Kids had the best superhero programming in the 90s with this, X-Men, Batman, and others. I was glued to that channel. Spider-Man has had more tv series since way back in the 70s, but this 90s modern take on him was the absolute best. It gave us Peter Parker during his college years working at the Daily Bugle. The animation was superb and the dialogue was actually really great with the inner-monologue of Spider-Man himself, just like the comic books. We got to see the classic spidey villains like Kingpin, Green Goblin, Lizard, Doc Ock, and Venom. Although, my favorite part was we got to see The Punisher make his appreance a few times along with Blade, Doc Strange and even Captain America. There was even a great crossover with X-Men. What else could you ask for in an amazing Spider-Man series. (see what I did there). 

Teen Titans (2003-2006)

The animation alone is drastically different then almost every other DC cartoon, and that is a great thing! The anime animation style was able to bring the emotion and humor out of the characters that made the show memorable. We finally got to see Robin and the team take main stage and Cyborg is just hilarious. Don’t think the show was all fun and games, it did get pretty serious in a lot episodes, with Ron Perlman as Slade. The characters were well thought out and presented perfect for the age group they were made for, but they did impress the older group with the humor. You have to love this show. 

Batman Beyond (1999-2001)

Batman in the future. Period. Also, takes place after Batman:TAS, which makes it even more awesome! Batman Beyond took the Timmverse into a big new direction with going into the future so far we actually get to see an old (very old) Bruce Wayne, still being voiced by Kevin Conroy. Bruce hangs up the cowl in the first episode and we meet the new Batman, Terry McGinnis. This new batman still has all the humor and will to do the job, but we get a brand new suit that is awesome (and capeless) and new gadgets. Bruce became an Alfred role, while Barbara Gordon is chief, and Robin is a tech guy. Pretty cool to see where they all ended up going.We also get some awesome new villains in Gotham and return of some old ones. This series was a Timmverse high that ended too soon in my opinion, it was even green-lit for a 4th season, but Justice League deterred that. I hope one day we see more of this world and it’s heroes/villains in animation or film. 

Do you have an idea what they top 5 shows will be? Well come on and see if you know what it is.

Pick & Pull: March 13, 2013 - Batman, Batman and Robin, Wolverine + More

It's finally here folks, Sorry for the late post but here are this weeks Pick & Pulls. They are actually very Batman related because of the recent events that have shaken the family. We get a comic book that is all silent for a special bird boy that passed away. *sniff* and a brand new series of a mutant favorite.


Batman and Robin #18 - This issue is very interesting because we are going to give Robin a moment of silence, well a whole issue. Ya thats right a whole comic with no dialogue I believe. Can't miss this!

Batman #18 - This series has become my favorite comic in recent history with Scott Snyder taking the Bat into a fantastic world and depth I haven't seen in years. This issue will also deal with Batmans loss of his son.

Wolverine #1 - Here isn't something Batman related, but equally awesome in every way. A new series about Wolverine that is rumored to be pretty awesome. So this is much check out!

Sledgehammer 44 #1 - This is a Hellboy character kicking some butt in world war II era and basically is a twisted version of Iron Man. Pretty awesome I know.

Hoax Hunters #8 - This series is kind of just filling my void of supernatural investigators until The X-Files makes it's return this summer. I am so excited. Oh ya this series is still pretty awesome and check out if you like stuff like that.

That Veronica Mars Movie is Up to the Fans with Kickstarter!

Veronica Mars was a tv series on UPN that last only 3 seasons before ending in 2007. The series has a pretty big cult following and has only grown over the past 6 years of it being gone. How do they fix that? They will finally make a movie based on the series bringing everyone back! The only thing is it will only be done if the fans fund it though Kickstarter.

Series creator Rob Thomas has finally figured out that fans are the people who can make this thing happen and the Kickstarter is asking for 2 million dollars to finance a low-budget movie and Warner Bros. has agreed to pay for marketing and release cost for a first quarter 2014 release. Pretty sweet huh? I think so.

The incentives range from a personalized voicemail from cast to a speaking role in film! There are many more of them so check them out on the official page at Veronica Mars Kickstarter and make a donation.

It looks like all the publicity this thing is getting is working great! The project has only been live for not even a day and has passed the 1 Million mark! Holy bejeepers! Keep the money coming fans and we can get a pretty sweet movie out of this thing.

Once again here is the official Kickstarter page

Veronica Mars Movie Kickstarter 

Teen Titans Go! Premieres this April!

Cartoon Network is really trying to fill the void of DC Nation quick, since Young Justice just ended its run *sad face tears*. The press release today announced the Teen Titans Go! series will air a little sooner than I though, on April 23 at 7:30pm (ET/PT) and be rebroadcast on the DC Nation block on Saturday morning. 

Why am I going through all the specifics? You could just read the full press release below with an image of the animation-style they chose. I will say I'm not a fan of it, but I understand it is marketed towards little kids, not 20 yr old fanboys of Young Justice…pshh thats not me I swear..I'm lying its me. 

Press Release: The Teen Titans are returning to Cartoon Network with all-new comedic adventures, and this time they’re giving viewers a look at what life is really like as a teen superhero… once the cape comes off. The half-hour animated series, Teen Titans Go! premieres on Tuesday, April 23, at 7:30pm (ET/PT) and will be rebroadcast during the DC Nation block on Saturday mornings at 10:30am (ET/PT) beginning April 27.

The character-driven comedy series focuses on the funny that happens in between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. The comedic mayhem of the animated series is punctuated by pranks and the occasional need to fight crime, but it will also deal with the everyday issues of adolescence. With epic staring contests to decide who does the laundry, a series of quests and battles to construct the perfect sandwich or fighting crime in Jump City, one thing is for sure, these Titans will always be ready for an adventure inside the house and out.  

The principal voice cast from the original Teen Titans series, based on DC Comics characters, will reprise their roles in Teen Titans Go!, with Scott Menville as the voice of Robin, the slightly power-mad perfectionist and leader of the Teen Titans. Hynden Walch voices Starfire, an alien struggling to fit in; Tara Strong voices Raven, the sardonic, deadpan demon girl; Greg Cipes returns as the slightly dim but always loveable loafer, Beast Boy; and Khary Payton provides the voice of Cyborg, a laidback kid who is half teen, half robot.

The fan-favorite theme song from the original Teen Titans will also be making its return to television, with an updated remix from Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys.

Teen Titans Go! joins a strong Tuesday night block of programming on Cartoon Network which also includes Johnny Test (7:00pm ET/PT) and The Looney Tunes Show (8:00pm ET/PT). Teen Titans Go! can be seen again on Saturday mornings during the DC Nation block alongside Beware The Batman, which will premiere this summer. Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice Invasion will end their run on March 16. 

Teen Titans Go! is produced by Warner Bros. Animation with Sam Register (MAD, Teen Titans, Batman: The Brave and The Bold) serving as executive producer with Michael Jelenic (ThunderCats) and Aaron Horvath (MAD) as producers.

The Red Band Trailer and Poster for Kick-Ass 2 Has Arrived!!

Finally, We are given the first trailer for Kick-Ass 2 and its red band!! Thank you Universal for doing a red band first to give us fans what we all were dying to see, foul language and crazy fighting from high school masked crime fighters. Is it just me who wanted to see that? nahhhh 

The trailer is here to prove to us that with a different director it will still have the feel and heart of the first one. Jeff Wadlow is ok in my book so far with how this movie is shaping up. Also, Jim Carrey is very out of character for this movie with a role that makes him almost unrecognizable to most. 

When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.

Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there's only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.

I can not wait to see Kick-Ass 2 on August 16!

Grown Ups 2 Poster Finally Online

The poster for Adam Sandler's sequel film, Grown Ups 2, has snuck its way online today.

The whole original cast including Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Maya Rudolph, Salma Hayek, and Nick Swardson are set to return without Rob Schneider anywhere in sight. Either they thought he wasn't funny or Rob knew something about how bad it could turn out. Smart man Rob.

Lenny (Sandler) having relocated his family back to the small town where he and his friends grew up. This time around, the grown ups are the ones learning lessons from their kids on a day notoriously full of surprises: the last day of school. 

Grown Ups 2 will hit theaters on July 12

Read Over 700 Marvel First Issues Now for Free!

UPDATE: The servers through Marvel's app and website to get the free issues seems to be down most of the day because all of us fans are stocking up on this pretty sweet promotion here, I'm assuming. So keep eyes peeled for when they come back. I just want my comics Marvel! (pretty smart to market this and not be able to give the people the product due to "issues" with server…sure Marvel *wink wink*)

Marvel announced that they will letting over 700 first issues ranging from the beginnings all the way to Marvel Now books, which are very recent. This is a pretty big marketing tool Marvel is taking and pretty smart one too. It will draw old readers back and draw new readers in to the dark side of geek world.

“This is the perfect way to show everyone how much we believe in our material by letting them try the first issues for free, because we’re sure once they start, they won’t stop,” says Marvel SVP – Sales, Digital & Print David Gabriel. “Week in and week out we ask fans to come check out our new releases—both in print and digitally—with the promise that we’ll bring them the best comics made by the best talent and managed by the best editorial team in the industry. Now, existing and news fans [alike] can discover the heroes they know and love and learn about new ones all at the same time.”

There is a great mix of recent comics—such as UNCANNY AVENGERS, ALL-NEW X-MEN, CIVIL WAR, AVENGERS VS. X-MEN—in here alongside classic #1’s—AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, FANTASTIC FOUR, CAPTAIN AMERICA COMICS—so I’m confident in saying that no matter the era or the character you’re going to be very happy.

Also, I know many of you can't read 700 comics within a day. Not everyone can be like Will Hunting (too old of joke?). So Marvel is allowing you to download them all and they will remain on your account that you create through their website at or through their mobile app to read on your own slow paced time.

Christopher Nolan's Interstellar Coming To Theaters on November 7, 2014

Warner Bros. Pictures and Paramount Pictures, together, announced that Christopher Nolan's original film Interstellar will be co-produced and distributed by them. They announced Interstellar will be released in theaters and IMAX on November 7, 2014.

Christopher Nolan recently completed his Dark Knight Trilogy and he was in need of a new project to work on, and here it is. Interstellar is an original idea based on a script by his brother Jonathan Nolan.

The plot is set to revolve around a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding. (mind blown on that one). Anything with Nolan is a must see on my list, but Nolan + Sci-Fi = can't wait to see this!!!

George Lucas Confirms Return of Hamill, Ford, and Fisher for Star Wars

George Lucas seems to not really be that secretive guy he used to be lately. The man has always been one to keep things under wraps until it was due time, but I think "not giving a S@#$" mood has finally set in after he sold Star Wars to Disney. He dropped some big news, I bet Disney was planning on announcing in a big conference or something.

George Lucas stated in a interview that Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher will return for their respective roles in the Star Wars Episode VII.

"We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison—or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation," Lucas said. "So I called them to say, 'Look, this is what's going on.'" He pauses. "Maybe I'm not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them." Then he adds: "I won't say whether the negotiations were successful or not."

More info to come in the future!

Pick & Pull: March 6th, 2013 - Age of Ultron, Superman, Detective Comics, + More

It's that time again fellow brotherhood of Mutants (just kidding we are good kids right? Righhht?). This weeks pick & pull includes a finale to a big arc to a hero, A look at a hero after a big loss in family, and the new age of a villain that has been due to show up sooner or later.


Age of Ultron #1 - This series has been lingering around just waiting to come out with little bits of it being planted even way back in Avengers Vs X-Men series. We are going to see Ultron evolve and try to take over the earth and destroy humanity as we know it. Pretty exciting I know. The only people that can stop it is just about everyone in the Marvel universe take down this thing in a massive 10 part series.

Detective Comics #18 - Batman will be taking on a huge foe we all know is pretty crazy awesome. The Penguin. Batman just went through a very traumatizing time losing his one and only son and what better way to go rage crazy than take it out on Gotham scum. We will start to see how the death is affecting Bruce on a very personal level in this issue.

Superman #18 - The final issue in the "H'EL On Earth" story arc and it is a doozy. To win the final fight with H'EL, one of the members must make a fatale sacrifice to stop it. Some s@#$ goes down in this issue that will have repercussions.

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight (TB) - This is kind of a extra little thing I added that I think any Batman fan would love. This is the collection of an amazing elseworlds series that has Batman pitted against Jack The Ripper in a crazy battle in Gotham in the 1800s. Sounds cool, thats because it is.

More next week

New Iron Man 3 Trailer is Crazy Awesome!

The newest trailer for Iron Man 3 hit the net and it's pretty epic! The first trailer gave us the feeling of dread and darkness, which is new for the series. Naturally we were wondering if the newest trailer would continue that mood and I have to say its there. I love it!

Shane Black taking over the reigns of the franchise was a fantastic breathe of air because of his great dialogue and sense of humor. You have to love Lethal Weapon or Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. The man has put his action background into overdrive for this film as the trailer shows. I only hope that Stark and Rhodes have a Lethal Weapon partner relationship feel to them.

Check out the insane action driven trailer below

Rumor: Christopher Nolan Overseeing Justice League, Zack Snyder Maybe Directing, and Christian Bale Back as Batman

This has to be one of the biggest rumors that Latino Review has released in a very long time (although they can be very credible). It blows the Marvel 'World War Hulk' Avengers storyline out of the water. Before I go any farther in this rumor…just know it is exactly that and I have trouble believing all of it. Just so many factors I see that go against it.

The rumor is a behemoth, Latino Review reported last night that Chris Nolan has already taken over the DC Universe at Warner Bros and every superhero film in production must go through him first. That is a huge thing to drop but lets move on first. Also, they said that Zack Snyder is going to co-produce, if not maybe direct it with Christian Bale returning as Bruce Wayne/Batman. This whole article just got crazy and your (if your a geek/nerd) mind is going nuts right now.

So lets get in the fine points of this and strip down them (the rumors, people).

Chris Nolan taking on godfather role over DC Universe 

Chris Nolan taking on a huge role in overseeing DC Universe pictures for Warner Bros. is a huge nerdgasm for all fans, but honestly what are the chances of him doing that. Nolan is known for giving us the biggest Batman series with arguably one of the best pictures of the century. He is a huge fan himself, but he doesn't want to always be doing superhero stuff and he's said that before. This man is a highly productive sought after director. How can the man who only works on one film at a time manage a vast catalogue of superheroes leading up to Justice League film. I think chances are slim for him to be a big contributor in the grand scheme, but maybe a guy to help bring the players together and make something happen and put in his 2 cents. I just don't see him in a Kevin Fiege role (only purpose is to manage Marvel films), he is a filmmaker. I give this rumor a plausibility, but not to the full extent of him being greatly involved.

Zack Snyder Producing and Possibility Directing 

Zack Snyder is a huge fan of all things comics and with a two great comic book films under him (300, Watchmen), and with hearing early reviews of Man of Steel being amazing, I can see this man up for the challenge of producing and even directing a Justice League film. He knows a lot about how the mechanics of these types of films work and has a great visual appearance in all of his films. The balance of Justice League resting on the shoulders of Man of Steel, If proven a success, Warner Bros. would be in great thought to get him on board. I think this rumor is very plausible and I can see him wanting to take on the film.

Christian Bale returning as Bruce Wayne aka Batman 

Here is the only really big problem I have with this rumor. Christian Bale is a great Batman, don't get me wrong, but he has said the only way he would come back was if Nolan came up to him with a way to make a fourth film work. Would Justice League be considered the fourth film? Warner Bros. reportedly wants to tie the world into The Dark Knight universe, while cool, would really make the 3 films have no meaning with seeing how Bruce Wayne became something bigger and changed things in Gotham and put up the cowl. Although, I do admit, since Man of Steel is said to be more down to each and in tone of the series, I can see it happening. I think I could adjust to it sooner or later. Still, it doesn't change the fact that Bale would likely only join if Nolan was somewhere on board. So it is true Nolan is overseeing it, Bale couldn't be to far behind the bandwagon. 

Just remember folks, these are all just rumors for now. No matter how crazy they are, you just never know. Latino Review has a pretty good track record with DC, but we all get stuff wrong sometime...
