It seems that the rumors are true, and Batman V. Superman will indeed feature yet another retelling of the death of Thomas and Martha Wayne. It's hard to imagine where this is going to fit in a movie that already features Wonder Woman and Superman at the very least, but it is a pretty iconic scene, and I suppose necesary to some degree if you're going to be setting up a new version of Batman.
With a new Batman on the scene, it was only a matter of time before DC and WB found a new movie Joker. While it seems unlikely that he'll have anything more than a brief cameo (if that) in 2016's Batman V. Superman, it sounds like Warner Bros. has already started casting for the role, and Harley Quinn might not be very far behind.
We got all of the announcements from the big Marvel event earlier that went down earlier week, but what didn't arrive online were the two new videos they showed. Luckily for us (albeit probably frustrating for Marvel), both of them were discretely filmed and leaked online. The first one, a teaser for Avengers: Infinity War, hit the web yesterday, and now we've got a pretty decent look at the second: a full scene from Age of Ultron that succinctly sets the stage for Civil War.
Yesterday, Marvel broke the internet when they announced all of their films from now up to 2019. Nine films were presented, including newbies like Doctor Strange and Black Panther, and the ridiculously exciting prospect of Avengers: Infinity War, a movie that will presumably be so packed with awesome, it needs to be split into two parts.
Yesterday was a massive day for Marvel news, but we've got two more video clips this morning to finish things off. First up is the Infinity War teaser that Marvel showed at yesterday's press conference. Aside from Thanos and his new accessory, it has no new footage, but it is really cool.
Today, Marvel dropped some huge bombshells in regards to their Phase Three plans. One of the biggest announcements was the long-rumored title of the third Thor film: Ragnarok. Thor hasn't always been the most popular comic book character though, so even though this is also the title of one of his most epic stories, I haven't seen it discussed all that much.
Oh man, I'm dying. Someone went and synched the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer with Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On, and it works so well, I have to believe it was considered for the actual trailer music at some point.
There are many mysteries in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, but one in particular has been on a lot of fans' minds. It's the scene where all of the Avengers are gathered together in their casual-wear (presumably in Avengers Tower). There's Hawkeye, Tony Stark, Rhodey, Maria Hill, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Bruce Banner, and... wait, who the heck is that?
The Age of Ultron trailer was supposed to debut during next week's episode of Agents of SHIELD, but instead, it leaked online earlier today. In response, Marvel reacted in the possible given a bad situation (for them that is), and uploaded an HD version to their YouTube channel.
If you missed out on the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer at Comic-Con, it'll be arriving much sooner than a lot of us expected it to. We previously heard that it would arrive attached to Interstellar in November, and while that might still be true, it'll actually be viewable next week when it debuts on TV.
