Thor Claims Win Over Hulk in Ragnarok Trailer

Marvel has released a new trailer for Thor: Ragnarok.

The trailer starts off with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) telling Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) about how things have been since they last saw each other.

He then fills him in on how Hela (Cate Blanchett) has taken over Asgard and tells him that they fought, but that Thor won easily. Banner says, “That doesn’t seem right.” to which Thor says, “Well, it’s true.”

We then see Hela reveling in how she has destroyed Asgard, “And it will be reborn in my image”.

Thor continues telling Banner that he needs to stop Hel, in order to prevent Ragnarok, “So I’m putting together a team, like the old days.”

During the end of that, we see Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and then Hulk, followed by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in chains, “Surprise, this is going to be such fun.” he tells Thor.

A shot of Thor and Loki side by side with some form of energy guns promises that both will be moving from their traditional weapons.

Several action shots include Hulk facing off against a giant wolf and a glimpse of Skurge (Karl Urban).

Hela states, “I’m not a queen or a monster, I’m the goddess of death. What were you the god of again?”

This is followed by Thor going crazy lighting level, including some very electric looking eyes.

Another scene shows Thor and Hulk discussing how they’re the same, with Hulk saying, “Hulk like raging fire, Thor like smoldering fire.”

It cuts from there to end with Hulk fighting something that can only be described as Balarog.

Thor: Ragnarok is set for release on November 3.

Justice League Trailer Shows Heroes Coming Together To Face Steppenwolf

Warner Brothers has released a full trailer for Justice League.

The trailer starts with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) stopping some sort of heist.

We then see several shots including a Superman memorial, The Daily Planet with a headline that reads “World Without Hope”, and Commissioner Gordon (J. K. Simmons) turning on the bat signal, while we hear reporters discussing the death of Superman (Henry Cavill) and that Batman (Ben Affleck) has not been seen since.

Cut to Diana Prince telling Bruce Wayne that, “They say the age of heroes will never come again.” He responds, “It has to.”

Diana says, “Something is coming” while we witness Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds) crash into the Amazon’s island, and Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) and her warriors face off against the intruder.

Aquaman (Jason Momoa) is seen, then Diana again, followed by a shot of Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Bruce Wayne staring at a hologram of what appears to be Superman, and Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) using a finger to push through some glass. Another shot of Steppenwolf, this time, with him smashing his weapon into the ground, causing fiery damage. During those shots, Steppenwolf talks about how there is no one to protect Earth and that “this world will fall, like all of the others.”

Alfred (Jeremy Irons) says, “One misses the days when one’s biggest concerns were exploding-windup penguins.”

Aquaman says, “This is crazy. Honestly, I think we’re all going to die.”

Wonder Woman tells the others, “Don’t engage alone, we’ll do this together.”

The Flash worrying that he’s never actually done battle, “I just push some people and run away.”

We see Cyborg taking over the Batmobile, “Relax, Alfred, I’ll take it from here.”

Lots of action shots, while Bruce Wayne says, “Superman was a beacon to the world. He didn’t just save people, he made them see the best parts of themselves.” Alfred says, “I don’t recognize this world.” Bruce responds, “We don’t have to recognize it, we just have to save it.” During all the action shots we get a glimpse of the Steppenwolf’s soldiers, who appear to be some sort of winged aliens.

Commissioner Gordon asks the assembled heroes, “How many of you are there?” Batman replies, “Not enough.” Gordon turns to ask something else, but all of them, except Flash, are gone, and he says, “O wow! They just, they really just vanish. That’s rude.” And then he too disappears.

In the last shot, Alfred is in the bat cave when something makes a drink shake. He looks up and says, “You said you’d come. Now let’s hope you aren’t too late.” We can’t see who he is talking to, but the way he emphasizes the word “hope” makes it feel like he could only be talking to someone who wears the symbol of hope on their chest.

Justice League comes to theaters on November 17.

Netflix Releases New Trailer For The Defenders

On Friday night, Netflix released a new trailer for their upcoming Marvel show, The Defenders.

In this show, Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones) come together.

We start off with a voice over from new villain Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver).

This continues as we see the previously shown, though not in so much detail, scene of the four defenders fighting their way down a hallway fighting a bunch of people in grey suits.

As Alexandra stops talking, we see that she has been speaking to Elektra (Elodie Yung).

The scene then shifts to the Royal Dragon Chinese Restaurant, where the four find themselves debating what their next move should be if they can even decide to work together.

They discuss how they can’t win against Alexandra and her followers, however, they may have no choice but to fight, as Alexandra is apparently hunting their friends and families.

Stick (Scott Glenn) then appears and tells them that without the four of them, New York will fall to Alexandra.

Various fight scenes, with them working together follow.

The intense mood is broken a little bit when Daredevil tells Luke and Jessica that he’s “glad we found each other”, to which Luke replies, “I’m not hugging you”.

In the final scene, the three of them are in a subway car and Jessica downs a canned beer looks at the two of them and says “It’s been a long week”.

The Defenders is set for release on August 18.

MGM Announces Stargate Origins

MGM has announced a new Stargate series, Stargate: Origins.

In the teaser, that they released, we see scenes from the original movie, when the stargate is found in Giza, Egypt, in 1928.

What if you didn’t know the whole story? Go back to where it all began.

And then it tells us that Origins is coming in 2017, though filming has yet to start so we’ll see if that holds up.

That is all that MGM has officially put out, however, we have also learned that Origins will not be a full series.

It will only be ten episodes, each ten minutes in length, and aired exclusively through the new Stargate Command website.

The site will apparently be housing all previous Stargate content, including the original movie, all ten seasons of SG1, the three SG1 movies, all five Stargate: Atlantis seasons, and the one and a half seasons of Stargate: Universe.

It basically feels like MGM is going to use Origins to test the interest for new Stargate content and then decide whether or not to commit to a new series or movies.

The good news is that it definitely sounds like they’ve ruled against a remake of the movie or anything that will cancel out all of the series.

Marvel’s San Diego Comic Con Trailer For Inhumans

Marvel has released the second trailer for their upcoming ABC show, Inhumans.

In this trailer, we see more of the coup which Maximus (Iwan Rheon) commits in order to start actions against the humans down on Earth.

We get see Medusa (Serinda Swan)’s hair in action as she doesn’t take kindly to Maximus’ coup against her husband, Black Bolt (Anson Mount).

It also shows us a bit of Triton (Mike Moh), who apparently is recruiting a new inhuman, somewhere in a jungle.

That jungle is probably Hawaii, as that is where the Earth side part of the series is filmed and mostly to be set.

Inhumans first two episodes will be released on September 1, in IMAX theaters.

The rest of the show will then be released on ABC on an as of yet unspecified date this fall.

Netflix Releases Stan Lee Ad For Their Marvel Shows

Netflix has released a special ad for their Marvel TV shows.

In it, we see Stan Lee in the back of a taxi driving through Hell’s Kitchen.

As he does so, he catches glimpses of Matt Murdock aka Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Danny Rand aka the Iron Fist (Finn Jones).

The trailer goes beyond what Stan sees, showing us all four of them fighting against thugs and villains, culminating in them coming together as The Defenders.

During this, Stan is telling us what makes the heroes so great, is that they are “still human”.

At the end of the trailer, we see Frank Castle aka The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) who says “I guess I got here just in time”.

The Defenders is set for release on August 18, before each of the four goes back to their own shows, while The Punisher does not yet have an official release date, but is expected in November.

Disney Releases Behind The Scenes Video For Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Disney has released a behind the scenes video for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

In it, we get to see some of the film being made, a glance of the amount of puppetry involved, and some sights of new characters.

It also contains bits of interviews from the movie’s stars.

Some of the interviews discuss how this movie is different from any Star Wars movie before now.

Carrie Fisher’s words hit hard, in the emotional sense, as her talk of family reminds us that this will be the last time we all see our beloved princess.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set for release on December 15.
