Wow, what a week. This years Comic Con has brought us some phenomenal stuff, from the breath-taking BvS:Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad trailers to announcements of The Green Lantern Corps and tons more information on all our favourite masked heroes.
Lets take a look back at the news from Comic Con 2015 and try not to get too excited over the plethora of treats heading our way in the coming years.
Let’s start with DC. Jeez, they are really turning some heads at the moment and the two trailers that landed this week for Suicide Squad and BvS: Dawn of Justice are mind blowing. If you haven’t seen them yet then watch them here. If you have seen them already watch them again and again and again until it finally sinks in how amazing both these films look.
DC definitely stole the show this year. We were given a lot more information on all their coming TV shows including; Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow and The Flash. We were also given a closer look at the updated oufit from Flash season 2 and a very fun panel with the cast.
The last couple of days has seen more casting confirmed for Flash season 2. Screen legend Michael Ironside will be playing Captain Cold’s father, Lewis Snart and WWE star Adam Copeland as Atom Smasher. CW described Copeland’s Atom Smasher as “One of the most powerful enemies we encounter this season, Atom Smasher has come to Central City to kill The Flash. His incredible strength and ability to grow to enormous size makes him more than a match for Flash and the entire S.T.A.R. Labs team will have to come together to find a way to defeat him,”.
Flash isn’t the only one getting a makeover this autumn. Arrow has some new duds too and they are now more reminiscent of his look in the New 52. Along with his new look there are new characters coming to season 4. Damien Darhk, Anarky and another DC hero, Mr Terrific will be appearing next season.
In Marvel news, X-Men Apocalypse images have started to do the rounds and we got our first proper look at the titular character. The images look fantastic and have given us a hint of what kind of aesthetic we can expect.
A leaked trailer of Deadpool surfaced on the web and those of us lucky enough to see it got a very promising snippet of things to come. It had Wade’s smart mouth, gratuitous violence, obscene language and Deadpool even broke the forth wall and spoke to the viewer. This is really shaping up to be the movie the character deserves. The video gets taken down not long after it gets posted, so for now you’ll have to do with the following pictures until Fox release the official trailer.
Marisa Tomei has been cast as Aunt May in the upcoming Spider-Man movie. Oscar winner Tomei will be playing a much younger version of Peter’s Aunt than we have seen before but as Marvel are bringing us a young Peter Parker it would only be fitting.
Tomei won an Oscar for best supporting actress in 1992’s My Cousin Vinny and has been in an eclectic mix of movies over the years. I for one am excited to see where Marvel are taking the web-slinger and with the recent casting announcements it is looking very promising.
The world of comic book movies and TV shows has been rapidly expanding over the last few years and things just seem to be getting started. To keep up-to-date on all the news and trailers check back to MGFN.co.uk where we will be bringing you all the latest comic book movie news.
