Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Teaser Trailer!
Not only is this teaser the second most watched teaser of all time, but it is totally awesome! This is the way teasers should be, show a little bit of the film, let the audience get the vibe. In this case, jawdropping action and the Guardians back and forth dialogue we’ve come to love and expect! Let talk about Starlord, Gamora, Rocket, Drax, Baby Groot and now Mantis!
This bizarre new X-Men related series coming to us from Fargo’s Noah Hawley, starring Dan Stevens as Professor X’s son, David Haller codename Legion, has dropped a brand new trailer. This trailer looks packed with mystery, hospitals and abstract surrealism.
Well, it happened: all four shows crossing over with each other to rally against an alien threat called the Dominators. Let’s talk about each episode, and how Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and the Legends of Tomorrow crew fared in this multi episode character packed showdown.
A sneak preview clip for Spider-Man: Homecoming screened at an event in Brazil called the CCXP. The clip followed Peter Parker speaking with Happy Hogan about Tony Stark leaving him an upgrade. Then we see Spider-Man leap off a building and reveal webbed wings, similar to his original Ditko appearance. Off in Brazil, we see the first promotional image from Thor: Ragnarok of Thor and the Hulk, both in battle armor, ready to fight! Hulk is Planet Hulked out and Thor is finally wearing his helmet, but is brandishing swords instead of Mjolnir! What could this mean?!?

Flashback: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)
When you think of Batman films released in the theaters, lots of people don’t bring this one up. Maybe because it’s animated or they just never saw it. Well, let’s set the record straight. This film is incredible, and it tells one of the best Batman stories ever to make it on screen. Told with framing devices like Citizen Kane, we learn about Bruce Wayne’s lost love, Andrea, and how both of their lives took painful turns when they left each other. Did I mention this has some of the best scenes in any Batman movie, and it’s also got the Joker! Let’s talk Mask of the Phantasm!
