First Official Pics of Jamie Foxx as Electro and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been one of those always open with the fans kind of movies with stuff always being released on twitter by director Marc Webb and cast. Know we get something official from twitter! We get a first look at Jamie Foxx as Electro and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn. Busy last couple of days I would say!

Director Marc Webb tweeted "Day 52. My name is Max.". So that means this lucky fellow is Maxwell Dillion a.k.a. Electro. Love the yarn on the head. 

Dane DeHaan (what is it with everyone involved in this film having double letters in their name?!?!) tweeted "Ladies & Gentleman, FanBoys & FanGirls of all ages: I give you The #Amazing Harry Osborn."

More info to follow! I love how this film is shaping up, but the character of Max is different approach than expected but I can roll with it. Just as long as it doesn't go into Jim Carrey Riddler territory. Please

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 spins its web in theaters on May 2, 2014

First Poster for Thor: The Dark World Online!

Marvel Studios will have yet another big year. They have Iron Man 3 coming out in just weeks and Thor: The Dark World in November. We haven't seen much of anything for Thor so we are due for something good. We now have a nice little poster for the film that features Thor (Chris Hemsworth) himself.

The sequel takes place in the aftermath of Thor and Marvel's The Avengers, following Thor as he fights to restore order across the cosmos when an ancient race, led by the vengeful Malekith, returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Thor: The Dark World strikes theaters on November 8th

Full Cast of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Announced + New Image!

DC Animated Films have always been very fan orientated when it comes to getting the best animation style closets to the source material. Also, they have been stellar with voice acting with bringing back fan favorites and great new talent. Check out this full cast and you will see some perfect casting with some new people showing up in roles.

TV Guide announced the full cast of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox earlier. The full cast includes fan favorites Kevin Conroy as Batman, Dana Delany as Lois Lane, and Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern, Ron Perlman as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke. That gave me a nerdgasm. Also, joining the cast are Justin Chambers and Kevin McKidd as The Flash and Batman (Thomas Wayne version). Cyborg will be voiced by Michael B. Jordan (not the b-ball player mind you that) than the cool Cary Elwes as Aquaman, Vanessa Marshall as Wonder Woman, and Sam Daly as Superman. Wow thats a huge all-star cast! I can't wait for his!

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox hits video on July 30th

Man of Steel Viral Marketing Takes Off with General Zod Wanting Superman's Surrender

Man of Steel has always had a slight presence on the web since the beginning but the viral stuff has been pretty background until last couple of days. The viral kicked it into overdrive and went all out with multiple websites and times. We finally got the video that it all led up to and it's pretty awesome, I have to say. Michael Shannon as General Zod is going to be perfect.

The video is Zod telling the people of Earth, we have been keeping one of his citizens and he wants the dude back. Well, is Superman going to go back without a fight? I don't think so. Check out the eerie video of Zod giving Superman 24 hours to surrender. Also, the new trailer is rumored to be online soon.

Man of Steel flies into theaters on June 14th

Check it out after the jump!

Rumor: Warner Bros. Wants Sons of Anarchy Star Charlie Hunnam as The Flash in Justice League Film

Warner Bros. has rumors just like Marvel. Theres are just a little more out there at the moment. Rumors are spreading that WB is already banking on Man of Steel being a hit and are doing some rough stuff with the Justice League movie like sketches and such. Well some of those sketches of the flash are reportedly looking pretty darn similar to up and coming Sons of Anarchy and Pacific Rim actor Charlie Hunnam. Crazy I know.

The rumors have been spreading and it is likely that the artist doing the sketches is a huge fan of Jax Teller or is WB looking at the actor to take the fastest man alive mantle too. Only time will tell, but keep an eye out on this one in future.

First Trailer for Elysium is Amazing!

TriStar has released the first trailer for District 9 directors new film Elysium on Yahoo and I must say I'm geeking out like any other sci-fi fan out there. Neil Blomkamp knows his expertise is sci-fi and he has another film up his sleeve that is star powered (Matt Damon, Jodie Foster) and full of so much awesomeness.

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium's Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

Here is the trailer for Elysium that hits theaters on August 9th

Rumor: Blank Panther May Show Up in 'Avengers 2' and Morris Chestnut is The Guy

Rumors over at the Marvel camp just keep coming and coming every single week it seems. Some have plausibility while others are straight out of left field. This weeks rumor is not that bad of idea when you think about it. The rumor is actor Morris Chestnut will be Black Panther at the end of The Avengers 2. I like the idea and actually fits very nicely into the universe to introduce some of the other countries heroes we never get to see. He is perfect of the role.

The actor, Morris Chestnut, tweeted earlier ""It's time to get familiar with the Black Panther character!". The tweet was than deleted. He felt he needed to keep from Marvel suing him for all his worth and children's names.

 He added "Not final,"  "#BlackPanther may be in #avengers2 first. RT @jamaal91604133: @Morris_Chestnut Can't wait to see this movie. #BlackPanther"

Guess what then happened. You guessed it. It was deleted also. Marvel has stuck to their usual no commenting on rumors and said zip. We shall be left in dark for a while by the looks of it.

What do you think? Joke or real?

Spider-Man 4 Storyboards + Venom Art Hit the Web!

What if Spider-Man 4 was made and released instead of the reboot The Amazing Spider-Man? We may never know, but that is a perfect example of what we wonder how Spidey would have turned out differently. So all those people saying "There was going to be a Spider-Man 4?!", yes there was, and it was hyped to fix all the wrong number 3 did to the character and series.

The film was rushed into production with casting of John Malkovich as Vulture and Anne Hathaway as Black Cat. (just imagine those casting choices and ponder, would she take the role of Catwoman, which she made perfect?) So Many questions!!!!

Storyboardist *is that a word? hmmm* Well, storyboard artist *lets go with that one*  Jefrey Henderson has worked with director Sam Raimi on the film and did the storyboards for it before Sony pulled the web down on the film. He decided now was a good time to share some of them with the fans, but not many because he is afraid Sam will hunt him down for showing them. So he posted these which he felt comfortable enough to do for us. Check them out below with a cool drawing of Venom he did for Spider-Man 3 and a sweet spidey suit!

Check out the Venom and Amazing Spider-Man sketches after the jump!

Comics: Does Batman Get Carrie Kelley as New Robin?!

This month was marketed early as being a WTF moment heavy and than those labels disappeared. I think its safe to say that this book was meant to have one of those labels. I'm sorry if I'm going to spoil what happened to Damian Wayne in Batman Incorporated #8, you are just slow at reading, but he died and Batman needs the other half of the dynamic duo. Speculation has run afar trying to piece who will take up the bird mantle, with guesses ranging from Harper Row (my guess) to a random return of Stephanie Brown (we all wish). Well maybe we found one! and I didn't see it coming at all. 

NY Post did an article on the new Batman and Red Robin #19 and they reveal that the ginger girl in tights on the cover is exactly that! Carrie Kelley! Is she the new robin or is it a dream? Writer Peter Tomasi gives us answers sort of. 

“This is not an alternate-earth Robin, this is simply a girl named Carrie Kelley, who we learn knew Damian, which in turn weaves her into the fabric of the DC Universe for the first time in 25 years. Said writer Peter Tomasi. 

“What you'll find out once you crack the book, is that she's not exactly the ‘new Robin,’ but I don't want to spoil the story and her introduction into Bruce Wayne/Batman's life. In regards to how long she'll be around, let's just say that it's a helluva lot longer than ‘one issue.’ I've got plans for Carrie that play well into the future.”

I know everyone is thinking this is just a dream or a big stunt by DC to get that WTF Moment, but Peter says nope. 

“It's all real,” he said. “It's all in continuity. It's all part of the Batman universe in the here and now. Carrie Kelley has found her way into The New 52 and she's here to stay - in what capacity is anybody's guess - except mine of course.”

What are your thoughts on the introduction of Carrie Kelley into New 52 continuity? She hasn't been in any other universe besides Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns and it's sequel.

Pick & Pull: April 3, 2013 - Age of Ultron, Thanos Rising, Uber + More!

You know the drill fellow nerdisters (thats a world right?). Pick & Pull time is here and this week is very Marvel sided and independent sided. That isn't a bad thing at all. Marvel has some big stuff going down for the next few months and its all here now and its big. Also, we get a pretty decent sized new series. Check them out!


Age of Ultron #4 - Marvel has quite a big story on their hands with this series and its getting more epic every week. This week has some big turns and will likely start some fan fighting!

Thanos Rising #1 - with Ultron being a major book, why not give other publishers another punch with Thanos? He will have a huge part in Marvels future in comics and movies. We know that. Although, do we know that much about him? I think not. So Marvel has this sweet series to get us better aquatinted with the purple guy.

Uber #0 - I don't like how books do a #0, but this series made up with having a oversized issue that is very nice. All you really need to know is you have supersoliders and WWII.

Abe Sapien #1 - We love Hellboy and the whole universe he is in. We all love Abe. Great Idea give him his own ongoing series. Oh wait! They are doing that this week and it will be awesome!

Action Comics #19 - Here is a DC book that was in need of a lot of help. It has a new creative team behind it that hopefully can turn this forgettable series into a greatness and the first issue is shaping up nicely with them.

Will Arnett Cast in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

This reboot/remake/whatever is turning out to have some very odd (maybe bad) casting and story, but this has to be the coolest cast yet that I can agree with. What role is his? well yet another actor can't reveal who his character is. phooey! Well let the internet casting ideas commence now…

Will Arnett has joined the TMNT film as an unspecified character (likely Baxter, maybe Casey, or a better villain). My vote is for the camera man for April. Booya! Seriously though whatever the role I am digging the man being in the film. 

He joins Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo and Noel Fisher as Michelangelo. Oh and Megan Fox as April O'Neil *sneeze* horrible casting *sneeze* Oh sorry for the cold I have. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set for a June 6, 2014 

Legendary Robert Redford Cast as Head Guy of S.H.I.E.L.D. in Captain America: The Winter Solider

Legendary actor/director Robert Redford broke the news last week he was cast in Captain America: The Winter Solider, but we were left in dark on what role. Light has been bestowed upon us straight from the man himself!

In an interview he stated "“Well, the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. The head of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Now, you can't get any more direct than that can you? That leaves the door open to who exactly his character will be. Can he portray an older version of Nick Fury? A new character completely? or an older version of one of Captains allies from WWII? We must know Rob!! Hopefully soon but expect it to start filming shortly.

It will be released on April 4, 2014 starring Chris Evans returning as Captain America/Steve Rodgers, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson, and others.

Paramount Pictures Wants another G.I. Joe Movie in Near Future

Paramount Pictures announced they want to do another sequel in the G.I. Joe franchise after the second film G.I. Joe: Retaliation did exceptionally good at box office opening weekend with the second biggest opening in March with $51 million. Also, it had a smaller budget than the first ill-fated film with $130 million compared to $175 million and it made back it's budget worldwide opening. So of course Paramount wants some more muscles and ninjas in the future. 

So expect the third outing sometime likely between 2015-2017
