Deadpool 2 Short Film “No Good Deed” Now Playing with Logan!!!

Now playing with Logan in theaters is a short film featuring Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool.  Entitled “No Good Deed”, the film isn’t so much a Deadpool 2 trailer (for which we are still awaiting an official release date) as it is Deadpool 1.5 “As Close to a Film with Wolverine As I Can Get My Character to Be In”.  Also FYI, remember we’re dealing with Deadpool here and consider this slathered in a giant red band.

Trailer Time: Logan Trailer #1 (2017) *Jackman Pops the Claws One Last Time*

Logan, the third Wolverine solo film, will be the ninth and final appearance by Hugh Jackman as the most popular X-Man.  No one, not even Chris Reeve as Superman or Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark has completely and totally owned a superhero like Jackman has from the very first seconds we saw him cage fighting in X-Men.  Seventeen years later, his journey with the character will end, we’ll see the heir to Logan’s mantle, and also bid goodbye to Patrick Stewart as Professor Xavier.  This doesn’t feel like a super hero movie (and I mean that in the best way), it feels like an old gunslinger’s last hurrah, and set to Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt” (one of my three favorite songs), I got a little misty.  No one will ever fill Hugh’s shoes, even though one day they’ll cast another person as Logan, he has a choke hold on this role forever.

How Tall is Your Favorite DC Character? Fantastic Comic Art!!!

DC Height Comparison
From DC and Costume Collection, comes this great piece showing exactly how tall the members of the DCU are.  From Robin to Swamp Thing, you can figure out exactly where you rank.  I am Aquaman.  This leaves me somehow feeling less cool than we did the Marvel one and I ended up in the company of Nick Fury and The Punisher.  But…..hey…..trident!  How exactly did they determine the heights?  I’m so glad you asked….and I will be lazy and let them tell you: Continue reading How Tall is Your Favorite DC Character?

Trailer Time: X-Men Apocalypse Trailer #3 (2016) *Wolverine’s A Comin’ Too!*

I have a bad feeling about this film.  Three trailers, all feel kind of on the same level of impressive as Independence Day: Resurgence, but these movies are supposed to have plot.  This trailer gives away two major spoilers in that Quicksilver reveals he’s figured out he’s Magneto’s son and a certain clawed mutant answers the question of whether or not he’s joining the fray.  I don’t know, it just seems like a lot of explosions and not much character focus at all.  Hopefully, I’m wrong.  Jennifer Lawrence is clearly owning this film, and she and James McAvoy have said they want to do more.  FOX is already rumored to be ramping up for X-Men: Dark Phoenix to follow this.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

Psylocke, Olivia Munn, X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse also stars Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Lucas Till as Havok and newcomers Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Ben Hardy as Angel, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Lana Condor as Jubilee, and Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27th, 2016.
