Thoughts after the break:
Can't get enough of The Wolverine? Well, things are starting to heat up as later today we will see the full two minute trailer for the movie and to start off the day I present a couple of movie poster reveals.
First you get your bare chested Logan looking extremely mad.
The second poster is also of a shirtless Hugh Jackman, holding a sword in one hand and claws unsheathed in the other. I actually like this one better as the other version looks a little reminiscent of the "Platoon" movie poster to me.
The Wolverine opens July 26, 2013 in the US. In the meantime you can enjoy the X-men Franchise with this box set

The first look at Marvel's Ant-Man movie makes its way online...and then dissappears. Directed by Edgar Wright, the footage was first shown at San Diego Comic Con and gives a glimpse the superhero adventure film. For about a day the video made the rounds with several entertainment sites reporting it. Now, however, they are pretty much all left with a "video not found" message.
I did get a to check out the video when it was up and while the quality of the video was not the best it did provide a nice look at what could be an incredible movie. I was never an Ant-Man fan, but I was impressed by what I saw. Ant-man will kick off "Phase 3" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2015.

With Iron Man 3 just on the horizon, sexy superhero geek Tanya Tate checks in with a timely video review of the Iron Man vinyl bobblehead figure from Funko. She reviews the "classic" Iron Man figure that we know and love from the comics.
A nice review and Tanya is always fun to listen too. Look for more video reviews on her blog JustaLottaTanya.com.
Cartoon Network has started to run promos for the new DC animated program, Teen Titans Go! Featuring "New Teen Titans" era team consisting of Robin, Raven, Beast Boy, Starfire and Cyborg, this version of the team is going to focus more on off time of the superheroes and the misadventures they find themselves in. I think this is the first series in which DC heroes are played in this Looney Tunes-esque manner.
It looks like fun and I laughed out loud while watching the promo, so I'll give it a watch and see how it comes out. I still have to check out the first series, Teen Titans, which I just found out went 5 seasons? Damn. Where the hell have I been....
Teen Titans Go! is set to launch on April 27, 2013 on Cartoon Network.
How is that for a headline. The latest trailer for Iron Man 3 has been unleashed and it rocks. If you have not seen it yet, you gotta and you can, right here:
How about that closing moment? Marvel is going all out with this first post-Avengers movie and it's working. While it'll be hard for Iron Man 3 to top Avengers, from what is being seen...it'll get damn close.
Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley, Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black.
The trailer for Kick Ass 2 makes its online debut and it's pretty damn exciting. Check this out:
How awesome was that. For a movie that I had not heard much about, the trailer really piqued my interest. I actually dug the first one quite a bit. So, I'm ready to rock when this one drops. This year is going to be pretty solid for superhero movies.
Directed by Jeff Wadlow, Kick Ass 2 stars the returning Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse with Jim Carrey joining the cast. Kick Ass 2 comes out this summer.
Cosplay Queen Tanya Tate of JustaLottaTanya.com shows her love to Marvel's vinyl figure bobbleheads with a video review of The Red Skull.
These POP! figures from Funko have really caught on, there are dozens of characters that span Disney, Marvel, DC as well a sports and entertainment personalities. Fittingly Tanya does a lot of superhero video reviews and in this one she talks about legendary Captain America foe, The Red Skull
Good stuff. An Iron Man 3 wave of figures is out now, so maybe the delectable Miss Tate will be reviewing those soon.
Information on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been steadily coming along. Recently we were treated to a poster reveal which included a slightly different costume. Now, we have a synopsis of what we can expect from the 2014 flick:
In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
Jamie Foxx is interesting. I have a love/hate with the guy. Not the biggest fan but he does do some solid work. Loved him Django Unchained and Collateral. How will he come across as Electro? We'll see. I never thought Electro had much in the way of personality, so this may give Jamie the perfect opportunity to give the character some depth.
