Meet Baby Mystique in a New X-Men Trailer

Another character based trailer has arrived for Mystique. Not quite as interesting as the previous 3, but some insight into why Mystique isn't all blued up yet.

First Class X-Men Clips

Banshee really likes fish, Havok can't aim, and Beast has hands on his feet. All this and more in these surprisingly insightful and engrossing X-Men character based trailers.




5 Awesome Tidbits in the New Green Lantern Trailer

In addition to everything Kilowog related (sucker punch, MCD voice, and boomer ring blast) there were 5 other reasons to get ridiculously excited by the newest Green Lantern trailer.

1) Hint at the Sinestro Corps logo (anyone up for a sequel).

Along with Hal v Sinestro, I would love to see me some Arkillo v Kilowog on the big screen!

2) Sword Constructs!

3) Flamethrower Construct!

4) A decent look at a nasty Parallax

The movie Parallax looks much better as a smoke monster than a giant yellow bug.

5) The Guardians of Oa!

These dudes look sufficiently creepy.

Green Lanterns Second Trailer Hits the Web

This new trailer boasts a few new constructs (swords and a flamethrower), the smurfs, and a speaking part by the Master of Poozers himself, Kilowog. Oh yeah, and its awesome.

Still not sure about ol Carol though, but hey, whatcha gonna do?

Quest for the 2011 Superhero Box Office Crown - Bold Predictions

Its May! The summer movie season in upon us beginning this Friday May 6th with the opening of Thor. X-Men: First Class opens in a month on June 3rd followed in just two more weeks by Green Lantern on June 17th. Although the Transformers aren't strictly superheroes, I have included them here. Transformers: Dark of the Moon opens in less than two months on July 1st. Captain America will close out the season on July 22nd.

Its time to lock in my predictions for the domestic box office earnings of these films which I will be updating throughout the summer.

Thor - $240

Not as accessible as Iron Man, but pretty much two full weeks without major competition should pay big dividends. With nearly $100 million in the bank already from the International market, Thor looks to do just fine.

X-Men: First Class - $175

I am thinking audiences may be X-Mened out. This movie does look pretty good, but with an all new cast and no Wolverine, people may be confused.

Green Lantern - $275

This is the one I am really pulling for. Assuming this movie is good, a sequel has potential to be even more incredible. So, my outlook is hopeful and biased. Unfortunately, GL is parked in the middle of the most summer competition and so it better make its green quickly.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon - $350

Surely the quality of Transformers 2 will have an impact, but the trailer for this is pretty ridiculous, in a good way. The 4th of July has also been friendly to the disguised robots and will probably be again.

Captain America: The First Avenger - $165

I love the guy, I really do, but of the five movies listed here, this one gets me the least excited. Partly, that's because I really don't have much to go on at this point. By the end of July, geeks are going to be broke so Captain America will have to settle for sloppy seconds.

To recap, even if my dollars are off, I expect the final order to be:
Transformers for the win
Green Lantern to place
Thor to show
X-Men to survive
Captain America to lick his wounds

Teeny Tiny Peek at Green Lantern Animated Series

Its really hard to draw too many conclusions from this clip. It came from Cartoon Network promo reel featuring all sorts of upcoming shows from more Scooby to Looney Toones, to Green Lantern. From what I understand, this is not fully rendered animation, but still, it really doesn't look great to me. I want so much for this to be an awesome show. And if a DC series had to be done in the computer animation style, GL is the perfect choice, but why does a series have to be computer animated? Maybe I am just getting old, but I hope this isn't the wave of the future. Look at Young Justice. It looks fantastic and is one of the best animated series I have ever watched. It has set the bar high and I hope that come Green Lanterns debut, it has risen to the challenge.

Smallville is Doomed When a Certain Legion Comes to Town

&<span class=

Thanks to Kryptonsite for this nice screen capture from the final two episodes of Smallville. The picture shows members of the Legion of Doom plotting around a table including Solomon Grundy, Dark Archer, Roulette, Black Manta, Captain Cold, and Metallo. Its awesome to see Black Manta in particular in live action. The dude deserves his own spin-off. Oh, and of course thats Toyman on the monitor.
