The Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer is EVERYTHING

Marvel Studios Spider-Man Homecoming Trailer Stills
There are areas of the Marvel Universe that have made it to the big screen and yet, never quite captured the full perfection of its comic book counterparts. The X-Men stand as the most glaring abuse with countless films that ignore the core systems that made the comic so popular in favor of explosions, FX gimmicks that never fully pull the trigger and over use of a shirtless Hugh Jackman. Spider-Man has been another pitiable character with countless award winning comics and yet, each film crew seems to understand how to capture part of that magic, but not the whole mindblowing experience. There always seemed to be something missing. Now, we've come to the first trailer for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Spider-Man: Homecoming. I've had very few expectations going in. Peter Parker's debut in Captain America: Civil War was extremely satisfying but we'd not fully seen his world. Now we get a nice, long look...and it's everything I've always wanted.

New Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 Teaser Trailer Brings Tentacle Monsters, Mantis and Baby Groot Funnies

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 Teaser trailer 2 Baby Groot
Where the first teaser trailer gave us warm fuzzies, James Gunn seeks to assure us that Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is not taking itself seriously...at least... 80% of the time. You ready for more A hole action?

This coming May, 2017, welcome back Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and a rambunctious, apparently over stimulated baby Groot as they fight alongside and/or do battle with Mantis, Yondu and the Ravagers, Nebula, Taserface and EGO..the frakking Living Planet. That enough action for one movie? Apparently not. Here's the gang fighting a giant tentacle monster. You're Welcome.

The Last Of Us Part 2 Trailer Will Make You Weep

The Last Of Us Part 2 Trailer
These days, it's not incredibly difficult to create a video game trailer that will bring a crowd to their feet cheering and laughing and celebrating even with a year + to the title's release. Video game fans are vocal and enthusiastic and when they see something they like, they lose their damn minds. On the other hand, it is far more rare to watch a trailer play and know it will cause massive crowds of gamers to fall dead silent. Last Of Us Part 2 did just that today.

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Video Game Trailer LIVES *UPDATED

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Video Game
*Updated with game features at 3pm est
**Updated with Official press Release at 3:39pm est

Rumors of a NEW Marvel vs Capcom game have been rumbling around for quite some time, with questions centered around who Marvel would allow front and center for this epic video game throwdown. Those with fond memories of Wolverine's "Berserker Barrage" could shelve that enthusiasm, along with dreams of the return of Sabretooth, Juggernaut and the rest of the X-Men Universe. Those with visions of Fantastic Four heroes and villains...will face a similar let down, to be sure. Of course all this is not set in stone, but as the FOX/Marvel rift still remains, it seems unlikely anyone not owned (at least in part ...lookin at you Spidey) by Marvel Studios would be left on the bench. Still...HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN SINCE WE GOT AN AWESOME VIDEO GAME WITH MARVEL COMIC BOOK CHARACTERS??!! Welp..it's time. And as expected, it is glorious...

Possible First Advertising Image from Thor: Ragnarok

HOLY DAMN...it is time. Maybe. Possibly. No idea where this came from but it landed squarely in my email box and I've been geeking out over it ever since. It's no surprise to people that have been keeping tabs that Hulk will get his due screen time in the third Thor film, after both were absent from Captain America: Civil War, but people were wondering just how much we might see the two titanic brawlers side-by-side. This new image might shed some light...or just make the lot of you skeptical that this is what we'll get in the last 10 minutes of the film. NON BELIEVERS!!

Barbie: The Gamer Grill

Universal Home Video Barbie Video Game Hero Blu-ray
Barbie has had more jobs than any 100 people may have had in their lifetime. She's been to space, blinded us with science, donned a cape for super-heroics, gone full stealth as a spy and..umm..worked at McDonalds. In recent years, Mattel has been pushing to shatter the misconceptions of Barbie and her opulent lifestyle with marketing geared toward empowering little women to be anything they can dream. Today, we learned about a straight to DVD Barbie movie in which avid gamer Barbie is magically transported into her video game universe. The first part of that statement is something I heartily give massive thumbs up for, as women in gaming are still getting beat up out there, and this should not be the state of things. The second part could provide potential, unintentional hilarity...
