The Flash Movie Will Be Called Flashpoint

The Flash solo movie has a name, and it’s Flashpoint. Warner Bros. unveiled the title today at San Diego Comic-Con, and it’s of big significance to fans of the series.

Flashpoint is a reference to the 2011 Flash crossover comic series that put Barry Allen, The Flash, in a very different universe than the original storyline. Barry travels back in time to prevent his mother’s murder, and in doing so changes the DC universe timeline and many of the key heroes and villains in it. Warner Bros. isn’t revealing any more details on the plot of the film, but the name certainly may give a hint.

The Flash film has experienced many production setbacks. Last year, the film lost its director Seth Grahame-Smith due to “creative differences.” His replacement, Rick Famuyiwa, quit several months later, also due to “creative differences.” Warner Bros. then hired Joby Harold to rewrite the entire script, according to Variety. The studio is reportedly eyeing Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future) and Matthew Vaughn (Snatch, Kingsman) as “top choices” for director.

There’s no word as to when Flashpoint will release, but follow GameSpot Universe for any updates on the film as soon as they come out. For the latest news from Comic-Con, follow GameSpot’s full coverage.

Watch Thor: Ragnarok’s Awesome New Trailer Here

Marvel’s Comic-Con 2017 panel is happening now, and the company just showed off the latest trailer for Thor: Ragnarok.

You can check out the action-packed trailer above; it’s a pretty awesome look at the film. We even catch a glimpse of Loki and Thor cooperating to stave off waves of enemies.

The video also shows the Hulk wrestling with a massive wolf. The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) will feature prominently in the film, as Thor (Chris Hemsworth) must battle him in a gladiatorial fight. But in spite of this, Ruffalo has said in the past that he expects the film to be a “buddy movie” between Thor and Hulk.

Earlier at SDCC, we were able to get a good look at some of Thor: Ragnarok‘s new, high-end collectibles, and you can see them here. In addition, you can check out the film’s first trailer here. Be sure to keep an eye on GameSpot, because we’ll be reporting on all the Marvel news coming out of SDCC.

Thor: Ragnarok is due to be released on November 3, 2017.

Westworld Season 2 Trailer Debuts At Comic-Con

HBO’s hit show Westworld‘s second season is many months away, but we’re getting a first a look at what’s in store in the dark sci-fi saga. Today, a new trailer premiered at Comic-Con in San Diego and you can check it out above.

The series’ creators said the second season will be much more ambitious than the first, with more drama and higher stakes. “We always knew that we wanted the stakes and the scope to increase dramatically and that means the scale of production increases as well,” said writer and creator Jonathan Nolan last month (via Gamesradar). “We have an amazingly talented group of writers, directors, and crew coming back and gearing up for what I think and what I hope will prove to be a season twice as ambitious as the first one.”

In an interview with Variety, Nolan also spoke in detail about Season 1, and how Season 2 will go deeper in answering some of the big questions in Westworld. You can read more of his comments here and, for those who are worried about Season 1 spoilers, you will have to click before anything is revealed that could possibly spoil the plot for you.

We don’t exactly when to expect Westworld Season 2, but we know production is now underway and, after today’s announcement, we know it’s coming in 2018. For more breaking news from Comic-Con, check out GameSpot’s full coverage.

Gotham Season 4’s Brutal First Trailer Shows Bruce Wayne Killing Someone

Fox’s Batman prequel show Gotham got renewed for a fourth season earlier this year, and today we got a first look at what’s in store for James Gordon and Bruce Wayne. From the trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con, it appears that Season 4 will continue showing the brutality of Gotham City, as well as bring Bruce Wayne and Ra’s al Ghul together.

The long video starts with a Season 3 highlight reel and moves into clips from Season 4. We see Bruce Wayne actually having to kill someone–in spite of his well-known oath to never take a life. Check it out above.

At the very end of the video, the haunting, modified tones of the villain Scarecrow are heard. It seems that Scarecrow will play a role in Gotham. It also revealed Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf) is joining the cast as Sofia Falcone.

The new season premieres on Thursday, September 28 at 8 PM ET on Fox.

Watch Stranger Things Season 2’s First Trailer Here

Stranger Things was extremely popular when it was first released on Netflix last year, becoming one of 2016’s most acclaimed shows. Today, we finally got a good look at its upcoming second season.

At San Diego Comic-Con, the first trailer for Stranger Things Season 2 was shown off, and it gives us a glimpse at what we can expect. Things have changed in Hawkins, Indiana, since the events of the first season. “Nothing’s going to go back to the way that it was,” the narrator of the trailer states.

Not surprisingly, the trailer is equal parts spooky, suspenseful, and straight out of the 1980s. And, of course, any trailer called “Thriller” has to feature some tunes from Michael Jackson. You can see the video above.

“It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab,” the video’s description reads. “Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.”

A first teaser was screened during the Super Bowl in January, which you can see here. Stranger Things Season 2 hits Netflix in October. Earlier this year, actor David Harbour–who plays Jim Hopper–said that the new season will be “fun, dark, and complex.”

See Thor: Ragnarok’s Ultra-Detailed Collectibles Here

Revealed at Comic-Con were the newest additions to the Hot Toy Line, based on the likenesses of the heroes and villains in Ragnarok. There are two versions of Thor, one with him wrapped in chains–which we saw early on in the first trailer–and one from the scene where he is about to fight Hulk. Doctor Strange gets the Hot Toys treatment, as the character will also be featured in the third Thor film. In addition, Loki, Hela, and Valkyrie will be available as well.

However, the one figure that literally stood above the rest was Hulk, which towered over the other figures in the line. We caught a glimpse of this Gladiator Hulk during the first trailer for Ragnarok. The look of the character is based on the critically acclaimed comic Planet Hulk by writer Greg Pak and artists Carlo Pagulayan.

Hot Toys are highly-detailed figures that look incredibly realistic and use the actor’s likeness from the films they’re based on. Of course, with that much time and effort put into the craftsmanship of the toy, it comes at a high price. On average, each of the Hot Toys costs around $200.

Thor: Ragnarok will be released on November 3, and while these figures aren’t available for preorder yet, many more Hot Toys are available on the company’s website. Interested in seeing more? Check out the best products–including Hot Toys–from Sideshow’s booth at the con.
