Happy Thursday, everyone!
Or, as I’m calling it – Happy Guardians of the Galaxy day everyone! Who else is going to the early screening tonight?
Sorry about missing the Daily Blast yesterday, I was under the weather, but today we’ve got a double-sized edition for you.
What’s on the docket? EA’s going subscription-based, Tarantino’s definitely doing a new movie in 2015, an awful Ninja Turtles poster, and a better look at the Deadpool test footage!
Happy Tuesday everyone, and welcome to your second Daily Blast for this final week of July.
It seems the world is still recovering from Comic Con, as the news world was pretty silent, but we’ve got some good stuff for you, including a brand new trailer for the final part of the Hobbit saga.
Read on and enjoy!
Man, what a crazy weekend of news!
But, sadly, some San Diego Comic Con news fell through the cracks here – but don’t worry. To scoop it all up, we have this – your Monday Daily Blast! There’s lots of fun stuff to watch today.
While the spotlight was on forthcoming DC and Marvel based superhero films, arguably the most talked about presentation at Comic Con yesterday was Warner Bros forthcoming Mad Max: Fury Road.
The first film in the Mad Max franchise in nearly 30 years, Mel Gibson has been replaced by Tom Hardy (Inception), and a shortened version of the footage screened for con goers has been officially released.
In a word, this footage is incredibly badass. From insane car racing action to a post-apocalyptic Charlize Theron, Mad Max: Fury Road has something for everyone, and has now become one of my most anticipated films of Summer 2015.
Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters on May 15, 2015.
After 20 years with Dark Horse, the Star Wars comics are returning to Marvel this January…which makes sense, considering they’re both owned by the same mouse now. At SDCC yesterday, during the “Cup O’ Joe” panel, hosted by Marvel head Joe Quesada, Marvel officially announced its first three titles featuring that galaxy far, far away. January 2015 brings the ongoing Star Wars series, written by Jason Aaron (Wolverine & The X-Men) with art by John Cassiday (Astonishing X-Men), the first art from which is above. Feburary 2015 brings an ongoing Darth Vader title, scripted by Kieron Gillen (Young Avengers) and drawn by Salvador Larroca (Invincible Iron Man). Last, but far from least, is a Princess Leia mini-series, arriving in March 2015, with story by Mark Waid (Daredevil) and art by Terry Dodson (Harley Quinn). As you can see – Marvel is going all out with this franchise, and I’m pretty confident that these will not be the only three series to come from the House of Ideas.
