Not content with two 1 minute spots, DC then released the final full trailer for BvS a few days later – which went down a storm in the Flickering Myth writers room.Superman’s grumpy face.
X-Men: Apocalypse’s, however, was about as lacklustre as the first trailer from last December. Other honourable mentions go to 10 Cloverfield Lane, Jason Bourne, Independence Day: Resurgence and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. But the top SuperHeroBowl spot goes to…
Captain America: Civil War. At just 40 seconds long, Steve Rogers and Friends managed to nab the week’s best teaser.Sorry…did we say ‘friends’?
In other Marvel news, James Gunn has revealed the logo for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and that the movie won’t feature Thanos or tie into Avengers: Infinity War. And over on Asgard, a major character is rumoured to be getting their own personal Ragnarok.It’s exactly the same as the old logo, with ‘Vol. 2’ written on it.
Moving over to a galaxy from quite a while ago and considerably further away, Star Wars: Episode VIII has officially started filming! Which begs the question, what has Mark Hamill been doing on an island off the coast of Ireland since October? He was spotted checking into a hotel on-location a few months ago. That guy is method.Mark…you want Episode VIII now…
Especially if he’s been hanging out with a Force ghost version of Ewan McGregor. The Scottish actor is rumoured to be in talks to reprise his Obi-Wan Kenobi role for Episode VIII.“Is that a lightsaber or are you just excited about potentially returning?”
Finally, it’s time for the SENSELESS, POST-MILLENIAL ACTION SECTION! Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will “definitely” return for Bad Boys 3; Charlize Theron is wanted for Fast 8’s main villain role; Paramount have set release dates for Transformers 5 and 6 and a Bumblebee spin-off movie; and xXx: The Return of Xander Cage has officially started production, unveiling a synopsis that promises “a bad-ass attitude”.
So put on your best flame-effect Hawaiin shirt and chuck Ramnstein on the 1st Gen iPod. It’s time to party like it’s 2004.
May the Movies be with you.
