Tonight on Attack of the Show, Jaimie Alexander sits down with Kevin Pereira for the inside scoop on Thor where she plays Sif, the goddess of war. (That's like female version of Kratos, right?) Watch as she shares stories about being a comic book geek and her love for pizza. Adam Sessler also takes a Game Break to discuss the Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Beta with its different levels and maps, while we check out the new Green Lantern trailer on The Feed! See you tonight!
The first episode of web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy has hit.
What started as a bizarre one-shot trailer with gruesome, pseudo-realistic imagery has evolved into this 10 episode action-packed web series. "Evolved" in the sense that (at least in this first entry,) it has slightly toned-down the grotesque, over-the-top aspects of that trailer from last year and comes out of the gate with more of a solid, realistic action style. As a result, while it still deviates heavily from the style of the iconic fighting game franchise, it simultaneously has more of the feel for the game's mythology.
Check out the first episode just below.
In honor of the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, which recently concluded, we present to you the nerdiest rap song of all time. If you like comics (especially Marvel Comics), you're going to totally geek out over Furthermore's Melted Vinyl!
It seems that the marketing juggernaut of The Beatles has hit a rare unfortunate snag. The plans for a 3D remake of their classic 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine have essentially been trashed. With the man behind Back to the Future, Robert Zemeckis as producer, 16 Beatles songs, and cutting edge 3D tech, the film had been in planning stages well before Avatar-mania of late 2009. So, is this a sign that The Beatles' popularity may be slipping? Think again! Oddly enough, the blame for this debacle can be firmly placed on the horrific box-office performance last weekend of animated feature Mars Needs Moms. -- Say wha?
If you're an avid reader of the Avengers comics, then you might have noticed something a little off about the screenshots for the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC, Captain America's shield is wrong. While it's true that Cap has had a couple of different versions of his shield throughout the years, the one he's wielding in the screenshots above is semi-apocryphal.
In the current 616 continuity, the mighty super soldier has conceded the moniker of Captain America to his former partner, Bucky and has taken over as Head of National Security. Now, going by his given name, Steve Rogers, he wears the uniform shown above while on active duty, but uses a force field replica of his famous circular shield in combat (it's used often in Secret Avengers), not the kite style shield in the screenshots. That shield was first introduced back in 1941 (Captain America Comics #1) and was later given as a peace offering to the fictional African nation of Wakanda.
Tonight, Attack of the Show geeks it up with Mayim Bialik from The Big Bang Theory where we get to know her character as Amy Fowler a little better and her chances of geek love on the show. Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey also bring you an exclusive sneak peek at I Am Number Four, the sci-fi movie starring Alex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant and Teresa Palmer. Plus, Chris Hardwick reviews the HTC Inspire 4G on Gadget Pr0n. Check it out tonight at 7PM!
The folks behind the Spider-Man reboot wanted to let you know to stop calling it "The Spider-Man Reboot." The title for Marc Webb's new take on the Spider-Man franchise has officially been revealed by Sony and Columbia Pictures -- The Amazing Spider-Man. Additionally, an all-new high-res pic (see it in full below) was released with the announcement depicting Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man completely decked-out in his Spidey-suit, mask and all. Despite a more modern approach to the costume, it certainly does appear that Webb is going down more of a comic-faithful route. Starting with a title that has a deep tradition in Spider-Man lore, the casting of Emma Stone as the Wall-Crawler's first real love in Gwen Stacy, we now see another purist element in this film -- web-shooters! What should we now make of the appropriately-named director's foray into Spidey's world?
