One of the big questions during Captain America: Civil War was “Where was The Wasp?” I mean, Ant-Man showed up, and we know she got her suit at the end of Ant-Man, yet she was nowhere to be found during the big rumble. The answer, of course, turns out to be simple.
Scott just didn’t ask her to come with.
It looks like Ant-Man and the Wasp will be dealing with the fallout from Scott’s decision to join Captain America in that whole thing, though who knows what effect the events of Infinity War will have on the plot in general. Also, it still bugs me how young Paul Rudd looks — like every single day. The guy is ten years older than me, but I look like I could play his dad. It’s so annoying.
Disney’s adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s novel A Wrinkle in Time is coming to theaters pretty soon, and the studio has released a UK trailer for the film. Honestly I’m not sure what to say about the film at this point beyond “It looks gorgeous…”
So, uh — it looks gorgeous.
This trailer has a little more emotional force behind it moreso than the wonder filled US trailer, but it’s still just a stunning thing to look at. I have pretty high hopes for this movie, so I’m crossing my fingers that Disney won’t let us down.
A Wrinkle in Time comes to theaters March 9, 2018.
Ash vs. Evil Dead has become over the last few years the pinnacle of the franchise it continues. I mean, it’s just so good at capturing the spirit of the second film, and the third season (premiering next month on STARZ) looks to be no different.
The new trailer for the upcoming season hits all the highlights — Ruby is evil again, Pablo’s powers are growing, Kelly gets possessed again… and oh yeah, Ash has a daughter. It has most of us pretty hyped, and if you’re a fan of the series you should be too.
Season 3 of Ash vs. Evil Dead premieres February 25th.
A new trailer has dropped for the Tomb Raider film reboot, and it’s looking very, very Tomb Raider-y. This time around it’s all about the relationship between Alicia Vikander’s Lara Croft and her father.
The entire thing looks pretty neat, and gives hope that we may have finally uncovered the mythical “good video game adaptation film.” Of course, I know I’ve said that before and been wrong, so who knows anymore.
In any case, Tomb Raider comes to theaters March 16th.
So things are a bit of a mess here at Nerd & Tie right now, but while we’re getting the paper back in stacks, we’re trying to catch up on some of the news items we’ve missed. One of them is that Netflix has released a new trailer for their adaptation of Altered Carbon.
The show looks like it’s going to be pretty faithful to the book (albeit with a couple of notable changes), and is starting to look really, really good. Frankly it’ll be nice to have a decent cyberpunk series to sink my teeth into.
Look, we all know the refrain — the Teen Titans animated series was super good, and the show that replaced it, Teen Titans GO!, is dumb. I mean, sure they were made for completely different age groups, but fans of the former sure do like to complain about the latter. I mean, fans have to occasionally remind themselves that sometimes there are shows not aimed at them. I mean, sometimes it’s okay for a show to be aimed at eight year olds, y’know?
Anywho, a Teen Titans GO! movie is totally a thing that’s happening, and it actually looks like it’ll be amusing. Just remind yourself – if you’re unhappy that it’s not the other version of Teen Titans, this just isn’t made for you and you don’t have to go see it.
Teen Titans GO! to the Movies hits theaters July 27, 2018
Krypton, the show about Superman’s grandpappy on a doomed planet, is probably the wonkiest idea for a television series in a while — and now it has a trailer. In it we see a very Smallville-esque Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El, Shaun Sipos as Adam Strange in a hoodie, and a giant alien space-thing. And while it’s not the worst looking thing out there, I have a hard time caring too much about the series.
Honestly, it’s hard to get excited for a show where if the good guys win they all end up dying anyway.
The final trailer before its worldwide release has come out for Godzilla: Monster Planet, and it has us pretty damned hyped. I mean, it’s full of J-Pop filled anime-spaceships action firing on kaiju, so — y’know — I’m not sure how it couldn’t. The film has already premiered in Japan, but we’re finally excited to see it for ourselves.
Godzilla: Monster Planet premieres worldwide on Netflix January 17th.
Look, we didn’t like Suicide Squad. Most people who enjoy “good movies” didn’t like it either. With that in mind, it’s kind of bizarre to get excited about Netflix’s Bright, which shares that film’s director and one of its stars. Okay, it probably helps that this movie was written by Max Landis, who is the showrunner of the brilliant television adaptation of Dirk Gently, but still.
We’ve had a handful of trailers for Bright, and the latest continues to look pretty solid. If you don’t recall, it’s a modern set fantasy movie where Will Smith plays a human cop partnered with an Orc (played by Joel Edgerton). It’s pretty different from most things we’ve seen, which is exciting on its own. This is the streaming service’s first attempt at a “blockbuster” movie, so it’ll be fun to see how it turns out
Sony announced back in 2015 that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were directing an animated Spider-Man feature film. Now, over two years later (and a year before its expected release), we have the first trailer.
What we know is that the film will center on a version of Miles Morales, a character best known from the Ultimate Spider-Man comics (who takes over the mantle after the death of that universe’s Peter Parker). The character has since been merged into the mainstream Marvel universe, but this is going to be his first big-screen appearance. The film looks like it’s going to play with the multi-verse a bit, so it should be pretty interesting.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes out in December of 2018.
