Hey, readers. Sorry about the short drought, I’ve been super busy on the road doing job applications, visits, and interviews. But, I’m back for a quick post about the San Diego Comic Con that just finished up. I just wanted to share some opinions, show off some of the cools things I noticed, and put some stuff you might be interested in into one place.
First off, the trailer for Horns.
This looks like a great movie. I haven’t read the book, but seeing Daniel Radcliff outside Harry Potter is a good thing. He is a legitimately powerful actor and this looks different enough that people won’t scoff at his performance as the same old same old. I definitely have my eye on this one.
Next, Mad Max: Fury Road.
A revival of the Mad Max trilogy staring Mel Gibson, the original writer and director takes up the reins of this post-apocalyptic action franchise. With a huge budget, solid direction, and the main character safely in the hands of the phenomenal star Tom Hardy, this will be a great addition to an already fantastic series.
How about some actual comics news? Here is the panel for Marvel’s Avengers: The Age of Ultron.
A quick review of what’s going on in the video. Josh Brolin is Thanos, the big purple guy at the end of the first Avengers. However, he isn’t the main villain in this one. That goes to Ultron, played by James Spader. Also, we get some classical additions to the Avengers line-up from the comic books. First, Quicksilver, who fans might remember from the recent X-Men: Days of Future Past. These are not in the same continuity, as they are owned by different companies, but Quicksilver has historically been seen more as an Avenger than an X-Man, along side his sister. Speaking of whom, Scarlet Witch is also in the film, along with super cyborg Vision. Marvel keeps upping the ante. Let’s hope they can keep impressing us.
Stay tuned very soon for part 2!
