We have an exceptional episode of GeekScholars Movie News this week, as the hosts provide a recap of one the geekiest events of the year–the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con International! Learn all of the exciting developments announced (or confirmed) by Marvel, and what the GeekScholars thought of all the new trailers including footage for: Justice League, Wonder Woman, Kong: Skull Island, and Arthur: Legend of the Sword, among others!
The GeekScholars wrap things up with a review of the fantastic new Star Trek Beyond. Enjoy!
It was that time of year again where all the hotels sell out in San Diego, and the people who got the oh-so-coveted tickets don their best superhero costume and wait in line to get the juiciest tidbits of their favorite show. If you were driving by the San Diego convention center and you saw Spiderman, the Predator, orange hairy thing, and Sailor Moon wannabees all walking alongside people carrying Walking Dead back packs, then you were in the right place. And if you have Kevin Smith broadcasting interviews from a yacht for Comic-Con, you know it’s not just comic books anymore. Hollywood star power is on the way. Welcome to the 49th annual San Diego Comic-Con International convention!
Along with the announcement that Legends of Tomorrow’s encounters with the Justice society of America came the news that Rex ‘Hourman’ Tyler would be joined by Obsidian, Stargirl and Dr. Mid-Nite (the roles are, as yet, uncast).
They will be facing off against a collection of villains from Greg Berlanti’s DCTV Universe: Malcolm Merlyn, Damien Dahrk, Captain cold and Reverse-Flash.
Oh! There was also a first look trailer. Check it out after the break.
Moments ago, FX premiered the first trailer for Legion, the Marvel-inspired series about David Haller – a man who is forced to consider the possibility that he’s not schizophrenic and that the voices in his head are real.
The series was created by Fargo creator Noah Hawley and stars Dan Steves as Haller. Follow the jump to watch the trailer, hot from the Cup O, Joe panel with Marvel COO, Joe Quesda.
