Reel Comic Heroes - Trailer Talk 008

What the hell happened? That is what we'd like to know in regards to our 'The Evil Dead' episode. Everything was going just fine... until we hit record. Basically, our mic failed. Normally when we record via Skype, we stop and listen to the first few minutes to make sure everything is recording normally. We forgot that step this time. What resulted is an un-listenable episode. 

Rather than re-record the entire review, we decided to recap what happened as well as cover the newest trailers for Alien: Covenant, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, and the teaser for Deadpool 2.

As this is being typed, our mic is en route back to the manufacturer for replacement. 

We would love to know what you think of The Evil Dead. Please send your thoughts to reelcomicheroes@gmail.com.

Reel Comic Heroes 023 - Captain America (1979)

Steve Rogers is a hero in every sense of the word. He fights for the little guys, because he was the little guy. Steve Rogers grew up with an inherent sense of justice and bravery. He is as noble as he is strong. Regardless of being bombarded with vita rays enhancing him with strength and speed, he will never stop defending the values he holds so dear. He is truly the Sentinel of Liberty.

This is not a movie about Steve Rogers. The man at the center of this movie may hold the title of Captain America, but little else.

If you've seen the 1979 TV movie Captain America, or its follow-up Captain America II: Death Too Soon, please email us and let us know what you thought. We'd love to share your opinions on an upcoming episode.

Reel Comic Heroes will return with Ridley Scott's Alien.

This Week's Geek - October 9, 2015

Greetings, Citizens! This week is shaping up pretty well with some tasty tidbits being dropped from both Marvel and DC. 

First off, Marvel Studios has updated their Phase 3 slate of films. They've announced a sequel to this summer's Ant-Man. In 2018 we will get to see Ant-Man and the Wasp. I really like the simplicity of the name and am really glad they didn't go with something like: "Ant-Man 2: Rise of the Wasp", or something in that vein. Evangeline Lilly was very charming in Ant-Man, and (spoilers) I love that teaser of her taking up the mantle of The Wasp. Ant-Man and the Wasp will arrive in three short years on July 6, 2018.

With the announcement of the Ant-Man/Wasp picture, Marvel also moved some other projects around to accomodate. Black Panter will be moving up to February 16, 2018, and Captain Marvel will be pushed back to March 8, 2019.

The Marvel announcement didn't end there. Also revealed were three more dates for untitled films, all in 2020. These three films could be standalone hero films, or sequels to previous movies, but either way we'll stay tuned.

 

DC/Warner Bros. have released some new costume images and concept art (below) of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  It feels like we're weeks, if not days away from getting a final trailer for the movie. The movie has received a rating (PG-13) which means there's a final cut of the film. So now all we have to do is wait.

 

The last thing I want to share is the final trailer for the new James Bond film Spectre. I really like the direction the series has gone with Daniel Craig. Casino Royale is one of my favorite Bond films. Quantum of Solace, while not the best, is best viewed as a back-to-back sequel to Casino Royale, as it opens moments after the previous film ends. Skyfall is a beautiful film with a lot of great elements. I think one of my favorite aspects to Skyfall is that instead of getting bigger and bigger, the action and drama get smaller and more personal as the film closes. Anyways, I'm really excited about Spectre, and like The Force Awakens, I've kept myself fairly closed off to information in regards to them both. The trailers and official images are about all I've looked at so far, and I really want to keep myself in the dark as to the direction these new films are headed.

This Week's Geek - September 26, 2015

Happy Batman Day everybody. Get out there and pick up a Batman comic book or watch a Batman movie. 

This week I wanted to start off with talking about one of my favorite character in all of comics; Spider-Man. Peter Parker is a very tragic character who will do everything he can to help people. I read an article this week over at GeekNation.com in which  confirmed the age of our next on-screen version of Peter Parker/Spider-Man played by Tom Holland. Just like in the comics, he will be starting off very young at 15 years old. I think this is great. The next Spider-Man film, directed by Jon Watts, won't be here until 2017, but we will see the character on screen in the massive Captain America: Civil War movie in 2016. Spider-Man was a huge part of the Civil War epic comic book story and I'm thrilled that Marvel and Sony worked things out in time for this movie.

Over at the Fox side of Marvel movies, Hugh Jackman said that he thought Tom Hardy would be an excellent replacement to take up the claws as Wolverine. Wolverine will be in the next X-Men: Apocalypse movie in 2016, and will appear in his third and final solo Wolverine movie in 2017. I like Tom Hardy well enough and think he could make a decent Wolverine. But, here's how I would handle Wolverine. Instead of recasting and continuing the Wolverine character that we know and have seen so many times already, why not turn Wolverine into a legacy character in the third and final solo film. Introduce Laura Kinney, aka X 23. They've already established that William Stryker was doing other experiments before and after Wolverine. They introduced Lady Deathstrike in X2. By introducing a cloned version of Wolverine you can get some great conflict and fights throughout the movie and by the end of the film establish a quasi father/daughter relationship between Logan and Laura. At the end of the film they could kill off Logan after passing on the mantle of the Wolverine to Laura. This would allow future X-Men movies to still have a Wolverine character and at the same time add a strong female character to the team. Anyways, that's how I would like to see the Wolverine character being handled rather than recasting another guy to play Wolverine yet again.

This morning I watched the newest teaser trailer for Netflix and Marvel's Jessica Jones series. I tried finding an official Netflix or Marvel release, but apparently it was released on the official Spanish Netflix channel. Not sure why neither Marvel or Netflix have shared this teaser, but either way, it's a great teaser, and shows us that like in the comics Jessica Jones has some some serious strength. Also, if you're a Breaking Bad fan, like myself, you will remember another scene featuring Krysten Ritter in a bed.

That's it for This Week's Geek. The next Reel Comics Heroes podcast episode will be covering Batman: The Movie from 1966.

This Week's Geek - September 13, 2015

Hey there, Citizens. I wanted to start this off by thanking everyone who has tuned in and given our show a chance. We've got some really good episodes coming up for everyone to check out soon. Tomorrow we'll release our 4th episode which will cover the classic 007 film: Goldfinger

This week Marvel and Netflix released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming series Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter (link below). I'm slightly familiar with the character of Jessica Jones. I mainly know her from Brian Michael Bendis's run on New Avengers. Before that I know she was featured in her own comic book called Alias. After seeing what Marvel and Netflix were able to do with Daredevil, I have no doubt that this series will also be interesting and a nice introduction for fans of the larger cinematic universe Marvel is constructing. 

The DC camp seemed very quiet this week as far as film went. Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad are close to wrapping up and moving into the post production stages. DC/Warner Bros. did, however, announce that Wonder Woman will begin shooting this November. That will be an exciting film to keep an eye out for. It will be interesting to see what DC does with this character that so many people have been wanting to see on a big screen for years. One other item DC released this week was the first images of their Hawkman and Hawkgirl for the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow series.

In tech news, Apple just held its annual September event where, to no surprise, they revealed details about the next iPhone. But one of the most interesting pieces shown was the new iPad Pro along with the Apple Pencil. I'm not interested in getting either of these for myself necessarily, but I can't wait to start seeing videos pop up online of comic book artists like Rob Liefeld and Jim Lee getting their hands on them and sharing their sketch videos.

That's about all I wanted to share this week. I need to get back to work putting the finishing touches on the next episode: Goldfinger.

This Week's Geek - September 6, 2015

Greetings, Citizens. We're releasing the next episode tomorrow 'From Russia with Love'. But until then, I wanted to share a few things I saw this week that were pretty geekworthy. 

First up, Marvel is releasing a bunch of video featurettes online that have been really cool. I really dig seeing how The Vision came to be. There's a nice mix of CG and live performance for that character. Head over to Marvel's YouTube page to get sucked into that worm hole. It's also nice that Avengers: Age of Ultron is out next week. At least digitally (I've pre-ordered through iTunes). The physical DVD/BluRay's won't be out until early October.

Next we have Star Wars has finally released merchandise for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I've read a lot of articles from people who have scored big (the remote controlled BB-8 seems to be the big hit), and some from people have left stores empty handed. It's nice that there's a lot of excitement for Star Wars merchandise again. But I'm sitting this one out. I've pretty much removed myself from the toy-buying game. When The Phantom Menace came out, I spent all my money on toys. I had the entire line of action figures from the movie. And then they got boxed away. They survived (sort of) a flood in my parents basement, but were pretty much all water-logged. All those 'mint-on-card' figures ended up being dirty plastic on warped cardboard. So I dumped them all on Craigslist and said goodbye. Aside from toys, there's also a new Star Wars book which was released. Star Wars: Aftermath by Chuck Wendig. Aftermath appears to be the first in a trilogy of books which will span the gap from Return of the Jedi to The Force Awakens. 

Lastly, I wanted to let people know about a graphic novel which is coming soon. One of my podcasting-heroes, Alex Robinson, is releasing his next graphic novel titled 'Our Expanding Universe' (available on pre-order over here). Aside from being an award-winning author/graphic novelist Alex is a podcaster and co-host of two of my favorite podcasts: Star Wars Minute and AlphaBeatical. On Star Wars Minute, Alex and Pete the Retailer dedicate one episode to every minute of the Star Wars movies. From opening crawl to closing credits, they provide their thoughts and opinions as well as trivia to every minute of the movies. They've completed the original trilogy, and are preparing to begin 'The Naboo Movie'. Over on AlphaBeatical, Alex, along with co-hosts: Pete the Retailer, El Adam, and John review and rate The Beatles catalog from A to Z, or more accurately; from 12 to Y. If you're a fan of The Beatles and their music like I am, this show is something you definitely want to put into your ears.

That's all I have for this week. Each week I'm going to try to share some cool content, as well as point people in the direction of other podcasts they may enjoy like I do. 

Have a great week, and check us out on the next episode: From Russia with Love.
