When we last discussed the upcoming Warner Brothers Pictures release “The Suicide Squad”, it was around the time of the DC Fandome and it was to showcase a number of colorful posters that you can all enjoy by clicking HERE. Now it’s time to share what amounts to being the “Red Band Trailer” which is considered more of an adult nature based on the contents. The code below forces you to watch on YouTube.com itself so we apologize but its beyond our control. I’ll be back with some insight on this at the close so do come back.
It would seem that the DC Fandome is all about reveals and one of the films that the fans are looking forward to in the coming future is “The Suicide Squad”, its a bit of a sequel to the original film and seems to have kept the same name but added a “the” to mark the difference. The film comes care of James Gunn who most of you know from “The Guardians Of The Galaxy” and now its time to see how he does a DC Extended Universe film. Sadly, this universe has been an uneven one but hopes are high for the upcoming “Wonder Woman 1984” film. This post is loaded with poster reveals so let’s begin with the Official Teaser and then past the premise and casting I will share the character ones. Enjoy and I will see you again at the close.
Premise: When a hulking monster emerges from an underground resting place and begins a mindless rampage, the Justice League is quickly called in to stop the colossal force of nature. But it soon becomes apparent that only Superman can stand against the monstrosity that has been nicknamed Doomsday. Battling their way throughout America, the two fight to a standstill as they reach the heart of Metropolis. Going punch for punch, Superman finally ends the threat of Doomsday as he throws one last punch and collapses forever. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to say that the DC Universe animated movies are miles ahead of anything that they have released on the big screen that feature some of our favorite superheroes. Of course as a faithful comics fan to canon, I get a little rant going when too many liberties are taken. This trailer looks great but I did have one qualm as a reader of the original issues as they played out. When Doomsday fought the Justice League, he did so while half secured in the suit you see him in. He only had one arm free and he pretty much wiped out the League. It was a testament to the creatures unbridled power that he could and did beat the Justice League as a whole with one arm tied behind his back. Anyway, that’s just me bitching and moaning. The plot of this one is pretty self-explanatory because in the comics Superman did die. It will be interesting to see this scene played out in an animated film. What do you think of this trailer? Chime in down below.
Marvel Studios’ “Guardians Of The Galaxy” Vol. 2 has been doing gangbusters at the box office and I am thinking that it’s going to surpass the film that preceded it without a doubt. So the reason for this new post about the film is to share a bunch of posters that were omitted from the film despite the initial intent to have them be featured. This is a pretty big deal for fans because they featured “actor” Simon Williams, who many fans know as the superhero Wonder Man. Check out director James Gunn’s brief Facebook mention below the official Theatrical Poster.
“Here are ALL of the Nathan Fillion as Simon Williams/Wonder Man posters cut from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in one place.”
I’ve said for awhile that is was time for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to get more cosmic and what better way to do it than to bring “The Guardians Of The Galaxy” to the big screen in the teams live-action debut. Check out the poster below and then we can discuss a little deeper.
The Premise: I will not even defer to the film’s Wiki entry because their plot reveals too much for me to share in this new broadcast post but essentially the film features a disparate and rag tag group of unlikely heroes from numerous worlds and species. When Thanos dispatches a dangerous henchman Ronan The Accuser to retrieve an artifact that he needs they band together and realize that they can help protect the galaxy from threats of this kind. The trailers have shown that there is a healthy dose of tongue in cheek comedic lines to be found in the film but I am okay with that since Marvel always did have a sense of humor when it was necessary. I don’t think we will be getting slapstick here so don’t worry. I like what I have seen so far and I really enjoyed the original Guardians team that had Starhawk, Charlie – 27, Martinex and Vance Astro so I am hopeful that this does the task that it is supposed to and expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos where so much more cool stuff awaits its fans. Can Captain Marvel or Adam Warlock be far from making appearances or am I dreaming while typing this narrative for you. Only time will tell. Readers might be interested in learning that while the film is only opening up today is the everywhere sense, they have already confirmed that we shall see a sequel. I think I know where “Avengers 3” will be heading. So let’s take a look at the cast and tell me my friends will you see this film? What are your hopes? Please no spoilers if you have somehow been lucky enough to see it somewhere. Continue reading Opening Today: “Guardians Of The Galaxy” (8/1/2014)→
