With San Diego Comic-Con going on, millions of fans have gathered to see new footage, get autographs, see costumes, meet actors, and actresses. All the new exciting stuff spreads across the Internet and excites millions more. So what can you be excited about? I'm here to tell you.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe...
Ryan Reynolds and the rest of the cast of the Deadpool movie have been at Comic-Con promoting their upcoming movie. It is rumored a trailer is set to release next month. For now we'll just have to live with the test footage and set photos. Here's a link to the test footage - http://youtu.be/BOuzWlOp3Yc
[X-Men: Apocalypse](tag:1194267) and Wolverine
Hugh Jackman has been at Comic-Con promoting The Wolverine 2, which sadly will be his last appearance as Wolverine unless he makes a cameo in Deapool or X-Men: Apocalypse. Can you blame him though? He's been playing the role since 2000 in the first X-Men movie. Although he's iconic and we'll all miss him, he deserves his break. In addition, the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse have been at Comic-Con. And just in case you didn't know, this includes Channing Tatum who is playing our favorite ragin' cajun, Gambit.
In the DC Cinematic Universe...
Not much is known, but a Green Lantern Corps movie was announced. It's been told that Chris Pine has been in the talks to play Hal Jordan, although he's also been in the talks to play Steve Trevor in the Wonder Woman movie coming soon. So who knows?
The upcoming coming Suicide Squad has released its first trailer. We see footage of Ben Affleck's Batman on the hood of the Joker's car in a chase scene also featuring Harley Quinn. There's glimpses of Will Smith's Deadshot in action, as well as Killer Croc and Jared Leto's Joker. Here's a link to the trailer-
The Flash has gotten tons of news. An action figure line for Arrow and The Flash was released. Flash fans can now add Heat Wave and the a Reverse Flash to their collection(The Flash and Captain Cold already being released now). The Future Flash costume with the white emblem seen in the Finale episode of season one is on display with Captain Cold's outfit. The cast of The Flash has been sighted at Comic-Con. The Flash himself, Grant Gustin, met Supergirl, Melissa Benoist.
Although it's not the first time, the two are Glee veterans.
In addition, Wally West was announced to appear in season two. Jay Garrick will appear and will be played by Teddy Sears.
And Shantel VanSanten will be playing Patty Spivot.
For those of you who aren't familiar with these characters: Jay Garrick was the Golden Age Flash, also known as the very first incarnation of the Flash. Barry Allen is the second and met Jay in an alternate dimension. Wally West who was announced is the third Flash. He is Iris' nephew and sidekick to Barry up until he replaced him after Barry died in Infinite Crisis. Patty Spivot is the current love interest of the Flash in the New 52 comics. She is a fellow police scientist at the CCPD. In other Flash news, a teaser trailer was released and teases the big villian of season two, Zoom.
He is hard to see in the teaser, but here's a glimpse-
Looks somewhat blue leaving some to believe he's a combination of two villians, Cobalt Blue and Zoom. Zoom is mainly a Wally West Flash villian and Cobalt Blue, in a short story, is Barry's long lost brother who was believed to be his stillborn twin. He becomes angry when he finds out the truth and wants revenge. But who knows if they'll go this route? Here's a better look at Zoom in the comics and the teaser- http://youtu.be/Q3tnEM9K4TU
Arrow has one of the coolest and greatest news-a new costume reveal for season 2. I am in love with this costume. It resembles the New 52 Green Arrow. Here it is-
Plus his action figure line with Flash's includes-Unmasked Dark Archer/Malcolm Meryln, a new Arrow(not the new suit), and Black Canary(Katie Cassidy, who rules). For those who don't know, Diggle, Felecity, and Arsenal were released a little ways back.
[Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870)
Probably the most anticipated superhero movie ever finally got a full length trailer. It features a look at Henry Cavill as Clark Kent(which I love)-
A look at Superman meeting with the government-
Bruce Wayne was in Metropolis during Zod VS Superman in Man of Steel-
Bruce Wayne feeling guilty-
Batman coming out of retirement-
Alfred's words of wisdom-
The dead body of General Zod-
A vandalized Robin suit with graffiti and bullet holes inferring the Joker killed Robin and Batman was so upset he retired(after sending Joker to prison). Robin suit is believed to be Jason Todd's given the comic where this happened, A Death in the Family, although it questions the existence of Dick Grayson/Nightwing/The 1st Robin-
The Murder of the Wayne's-
Batman V Superman-
Check it out for yourself-
I hope you found out something and it put a huge smile on your face. Great week for superhero fans. Thank you for your time. :)
