Star Trek Into Darkness: Debut Trailer Hits With Vengeance

The long-awaited debut trailer for sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness has hit the status quo of the future with an explosive, albeit eloquently-spoken fury that could rip Starfleet to its very core.

Clocking in at little over a minute, the brief teaser is a colossal cavalcade of crushing carnage mixed with shots of shocked faces.

We also get a peek into the mindset of the extremely irate villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch who wants to make it perfectly clear that our world is anything but safe once he brings his one man tour de force of demolition to a futuristic town near you.

Check it out below, as well as a (slightly) extended Japanese version which may have given us a critical clue.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation: New Poster Touts 3D Conversion

The promotional effort behind sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation has released a new poster, likely in an effort to remind potential audiences that the film still exists.

Of course, Retaliation was initially set for release back on June 29 before Paramount Pictures would make a risky (and costly) choice to nix those plans, opting to shelf the film for nearly a year for a complete 3D conversion and possible tweaks to the film itself.

Well, after several months off the radar, it appears that the Retaliation hype machine has reactivated as its announced March 29, 2013 release date looms closer. (Although, the poster says March 27.)

Check out the full poster below and decide if knowing is still half the battle.

The Dark Knight Rises DVD/Blu-ray has hit store shelves today, giving all of us Bane's permission to BUY the dramatic denouement to Christopher Nolan's Batman films.

With that occasion as the backdrop, the folks at Screen Junkies have once again provided their own dissection of the film that, while carrying its epic Nolan-esque moments, does contain some plot holes as nebulously explicable as Bane's voice.

While the famous tagline for the 1978 Superman movie with Christopher Reeve said, "You will believe a man can fly," we could similarly say of his fellow DC Comics hero that "You will believe a man can heal a broken back in two months while stuck in a dirty old prison with nothing but a rope and a Rocky training montage."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Jamie Foxx Confirms Talks For Electro

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 seems to be moving along steadily, but has it already found its villain? Possibly.

It seems that rumors from last month about actor/singer, Jamie Foxx being in line for the role of villain, Electro were not just rumors after all. Foxx himself confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that he has been in talks with director, Marc Webb about playing Spider-Man's spark-shooting criminal conduit.

If this is true, then, much like Rhys Ifans' The Lizard, the debut of Electro will continue the current franchise's strategy of venturing into new live action territory when it comes to Spidey's rogues gallery.

What could Jamie Fox's potential role as Electro bring to this sequel?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Gets New Harry Osborn

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director, Marc Webb has announced via tweet that he has cast the wall-crawling sequel's new Harry Osborn: Dane DeHaan.

Absent from the first film, the character of Harry Osborn, previously played by James Franco in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, is Peter Parker's best friend. Unfortunately, beneath his happy extroverted surface, lies a tortured young man who is barely clinging to life in the shadow of his renowned industrialist father, Norman Osborn. (Who will be the alter-ego of the glider-gallivanting, pumpkin-bomb-popping Green Goblin at some point.)

The 25 year-old DeHaan is best known for this year's faux-vérité "kids with super-powers" film, Chronicle, as well as roles on HBO TV series such as True Blood and In Treatment.

Now, he fills a critical role in the new Spider-Man mythos as the wayward buddy of Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker; a character whose life consists of conflicts of interest and, in a famously controversial Comics Code-defying moment in history, a drug habit.

Could this mean that the ominous Norman Osborn, who is only mentioned in The Amazing Spider-Man will finally surface in the sequel? We'll find out when it sticks to theater walls on May 2, 2014.

Justice League Movie Has Its Villain?

Does the upcoming Justice League feature film already have a villain lined up? Well, according to a report, the answer would be affirmative.

The folks at LatinoReview have learned that when Warner Bros. wrangles the heroes of the DC Comics universe together to hit the big screen in Avengers-like epicness, they will be tangling with none other than the durable, detestable despot, Darkseid.

While it is hardly a report containing much substance, Darkseid has always been the clear front-runner when it comes to the choice of villains who are powerful enough, recognizable enough, and carry the kind of gravitas necessary to be the main antagonist in an effort against the main lineup of DC Comics superheroes, headlined by Superman himself. (Plus, Tom Hiddleston was busy with The Avengers 2.)

What could this mean for DC's mega-team movie movement?

Wonder Woman TV Series Plot Details

Baxter

Posted November 30, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

Wonder Woman TV Series Plot Details

Plot details have emerged about The CW's upcoming Wonder Woman TV series, tentatively titled, Amazon.

When the news hit a few months back that the network would be taking yet another crack at DC Comics' bikini-clad, lasso-lobbing luminary, it was immediately made clear that it would be going in a completely different direction from the TV pilot headed by David E. Kelley which was completely scrapped last year.

This version appears more interested in chronicling the early life of the heroine, similar to what Smallville did for Superman. However, a rather lengthy summary of the show's plot has emerged, revealing that the show's direction is even more different than we thought. It seems that the would-be Wonder Woman will be portrayed as a young immigrant whose life has been filled with war, who must now cope with something she cannot comprehend: Life in the good 'ole US-of-A.

Check out the plot summary for the yet-to-be-completed script below!

X-Men: Days Of Future To Add Wolverine?

It appears that the new X-Men cast could be getting a bit of adamantium-aligned backup.

Hugh Jackman is reportedly in talks to appear as Wolverine in the upcoming prequel-sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past for what would be (after next summer's The Wolverine,) his sixth time in the X-Men film franchise. (The seventh if you count his cameo in X-Men: First Class.)

Only a few days after learning that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart would be returning in the film to reprise their roles, respectively as Magneto and Professor Charles Xavier, it should hardly come as a huge shock that Fox would be working on ways to wrangle in the franchise's most popular and iconic character.

What will this mean for Days of Future Past?

Gabe and Tycho, the creative force behind the PAX Conventions as well as their site, say "we can continue working for advertisers but if we can, we’d rather work for you," hence the non-traditional revenue model.
