Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Teaser Sneak Peak

This teaser aired during an episode of Gotham, and I’m sorry, but I can’t stop looking at how absurdly fake Batman’s triceps look.

I know that actors in these types of movies traditionally wear muscle suits, but my god that does not look even close to real.

Batman: Bat Blood

It’s probably not a great thing that when I heard that DC Entertainment was releasing a DVD called Batman: Bad Blood the first thing that came to mind was this video by HISHE.

Because in the end it’s all about the Bat Blood.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 Trailer

I like it how as of late DC Entertainment stopped Nolanizing all their comic book properties–at least on television, at any rate.  Not every character is Batman, and it’s good to see that they’re finally embracing the more fantastical aspects of many of them.

It’s a trend that began with The Flash, moved into Arrow, and seems to continue with Supergirl and the upcoming DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

I know who the individual characters are, but little about their particulars, though I think that making Rip Hunter a time-traveling Brit–whether or not he is in the comics–isn’t particularly a good move, especially since there’s a much better known British time traveller on television as of late.

And he’s not part of the DC Universe.

Fifty Shades of Black – Official Trailer 1

I get the sneaking suspicion that most everything funny about Marlon Wayans’s upcoming Fifty Shades of Black is already in the trailer?

I’ll probably never know for certain because I have no intention of paying to see it, though to be fair I expect it to be funnier than Fifty Shades of Gray (faint praise, especially since the latter isn’t a comedy.  I think).

Now You See Me 2 – Official Trailer 1

I actually enjoyed the original Now You See Me, despite that the story made no sense–in the world of the movie magic either really existed, a notion the very same movie spends most of running time debunking, or Mark Ruffalo’s Dylan Rhodes was a serial killer of magicians (a really odd niche to be sure, but if history has taught us anything it’s that serial killers are a particularly fickle bunch).

Though I imagine that if there was anyone that could show them a thing or two about magic it would be Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe).

Directed this time around John M. Chu, who replaces Louis Leterrier, it will hopefully do better than  Jem and the Holograms.

Jessica Jones – Official Trailer 2

For Marvel’s Daredevil I literally watched the entire first series over about a day and a half.  The reason I did so was because i wanted to see if i could, though i was also curious if could stand up to a serious binge-viewing.

And it passed with flying colors.

I’m not terribly familiar with Jessica Jones from the comics, so unlike with Daredevil, I am going in knowing little more than the non-comic reading viewer.

Though the trailers are interesting and show Marvel Television blazing their own trail independent of the movies.

I think that I’m feeling a binge-a-thon coming on.

I also have no idea what’s going on with The Rat, though it’s pretty harrowing.

Warcraft – Official Trailer

Universal and Legendary released their official Warcraft trailer, and it’s a HUGE improvement over the teaser.  That’s the good news; the not-so-good news is that–at least in the trailer–the CGI is looking particularly gamey, as in video gamey.

That’s not to say that it looks bad, but the Orcs don’t look as realistic as Hulk from Avengers: Age Of Ultron, either (and I am aware that orcs aren’t real, but you know what I mean) and live comfortably in the uncanny valley.

What I am also not seeing is it being a huge hit, which I attribute to the timing of the release more than anything else (if this came on the heels of the Lord Of The Rings movies it might be a different story) though I am not sure that Legendary wanting a movie to be an event is the same as the movie actually being an event.

We’ll see.
