I want to watch an entire documentary on the making of a Rick and Morty episode. Until that happens, there’s a tounge-in-cheek teaser trailer for season 3 of the show embedded above to help fill that longing.
Showing off scenes from the second episode of Rick and Morty titled Wasteland, both the episode and the trailer’s behind-the-scenes style clearly riff on last year’s blockbuster success, Mad Max: Fury Road. But you don’t need to read my description of it; just watch the video.
The Defenders is set to hit Netflix in its entirety on August 18. The show unites the heroes from all four of the streaming giant’s Marvel shows, namely Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.
They will be joined by a variety of other characters from the individual Netflix shows, including Daredevil‘s Elektra (Elodie Young), Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), Jessica Jones‘s Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss), and Luke Cage‘s Misty Knight, played by Simone Missick.
Trekkies and newcomers to the series just got a more in-depth look at the latest entry into the Star Trek series. Star Trek: Discovery is coming on CBS All Access in September, and a substantial trailer was released at a Comic-Con showing more of the crew and the Klingons. You check out the trailer above.
“The story that’s fascinating for me now is not from the captain’s perspective,” he said, via Polygon. “We’ve seen six series from the captain’s point of view and we wanted to do something different.” Fuller also said he was committed to diversity in casting, and choosing a female lead character was an important move for him.
“Star Trek started with a wonderful diversity in its cast,” he said. “Infinite diversity in infinite combinations, as Spock would say. We are absolutely continuing that tradition. We’ll probably have some more aliens than usual in our cast, too.” The show also stars Michelle Yeoh, Jason Isaacs, Chris Obi, and Doug Jones.
Star Trek: Discovery’s release date had been delayed in the past, but the show will now premiere September 24 on CBS in the US and CraveTV in Canada. Outside of the two countries, Netflix will stream the show. For more news and features from Comic-Con 2017 check out GameSpot’s full coverage.
Marvel’s jam-packed Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con had plenty of exciting announcements, including new trailers for both Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther, but there was also some significant casting news for another upcoming Marvel film, Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Michelle Pfeiffer, who memorably played Catwoman in the ’90s film Batman Returns, is shifting to another comic cinematic universe, and has been cast at Janet van Dyne in the upcoming Ant-Man sequel. In the comics world, Janet van Dyne was the original Wasp, a founding member of the Avengers and wife to Hank Pym (who was the original Ant-Man).
In the 2015 Ant-Man film, Hank Pym was played by Michael Douglas, and was shown as the original Ant-Man before Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) was “chosen” to wear the shrinking suit. Janet appeared as the Wasp in the film (although with her mask on) through a flashback that showed her disappearing into the subatomic quantum realm after a failed mission. At the end of the film, Hank’s daughter, Hope van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lilly), was given the original Wasp suit, and it’s clearly hinted that she would take on the mantle of the superhero in the film’s sequel.
Pfeiffer wasn’t the only new cast member revealed for Ant-Man and the Wasp. The Matrix’s Laurence Fishburne was announced to play the role of Bill Foster, who in the comics was known as Black Goliath/Giant Man. Hannah John-Kamen was also confirmed as character named Ghost, while Fresh Off The Boat’s Randall Park will play Agent Jimmy Woo.
We still haven’t seen much of Captain Marvel, but today Marvel gave us a few more details about the movie. At San Diego Comic-Con, the company announced that it’ll take place in the 1990s, and Captain Marvel will be facing off against a classic foe: Skrulls.
We now know that Captain Marvel will act as a prequel to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, taking place during the ’90s. We don’t have any other information on the setting, but we’re guessing that there’ll be a lot of throwback references for fans who grew up during the decade.
Perhaps the biggest reveal, though, was that she’ll be battling the Skrulls, a species of extraterrestrial shapeshifters. The Skrulls were revealed in a couple pieces of concept art that Marvel showed at its panel today; you can see it above, courtesy of Adam Hlavac. Interestingly, Skrulls have traditionally shown up in Fantastic Four comics, and so their movie rights are co-owned by Fox and Marvel.
In addition, Marvel announced that Samuel L. Jackson will once again be playing Nick Fury. And, since it’s set in the 1990s, Fury has both eyes.
Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson (Kong: Skull Island) and is set for release on March 8, 2019.
Black Panther was the final event at Marvel’s big San Diego Comic-Con panel tonight, and to cap it off the company released a new poster for the film. Although we don’t yet get to see any of the footage Marvel showed at the panel, the poster is still pretty cool.
It shows the superhero standing atop a massive stone panther. In the background, a variety of ships fly toward a city that appears a little worse for wear. Fires burn among the skyscrapers, while a smoke cloud hangs over the whole metropolis. Check it out:
Marvel gave Hall H attendees a great show, revealing a scene and a trailer. According to attendees–and a handheld video shared by Fandango–the reveals were exciting enough to spark a standing ovation.
Although there’s no new footage for the public to see, you can watch Black Panther‘s first trailer here. The movie is directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed). Chadwick Boseman plays the superhero, and its cast includes Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. It hits theaters on February 16, 2018.
The poster looks like a psychedelic rock album. It’s pretty trippy, if we’re being honest, showing the characters superimposed on top of one another. The Hulk looms over them all, a grimace on his face and a helmet on his head. Check it out:
It’s a striking image, to be sure, one that we could definitely see hanging on a 1970s dorm-room wall between Pink Floyd and Grateful Dead album covers. There’s a lot going on in it, which fits with the new, action-packed trailer that features everything from the Hulk fighting a wolf (presumably Fenris Wolf) to Loki and Thor teaming up.
