New Trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp

On our last podcast, Episode 17, we talked about the latest photo from this film and now we get to see a whole new trailer!

Marvel has released the trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp online. We get to see these two working together in their superhero suits and how they interact with each other. It looks like Hank Pym, Hope van Dyne, and Scott Lang are on the run after the events of Captain America: Civil War and are being chased by federal agencies. Hope’s mother, who was thought to be lost, is being played by Michelle Pfeiffer and will make an appearance in the film. This looks like it will be a good follow up to Ant-Man and I’m looking forward to seeing it!

More on the Silmarillion

For those that listened to our first Middle Earth Saga podcast episode where we talked about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, you heard us talking about the Silmarillion and it’s historical value with Middle Earth. The Silmarillion is the history of the Middle Earth and is a very complex creation by JRR Tolkien.

If you haven’t heard of this book or perhaps have heard of it, but don’t know much about it – TOR.com has put out a good series of blog posts about what it is and provides some basic summaries of the stories included in the book.

So if you’re wanting to know more, give it a read or if you want to go straight to the source, check out the links to buy the Silmarillion on Amazon.

Welcome to the Silmarillion Primer: An Introduction

 


The Avengers Re-Watch #3 – The Incredible Hulk

Listen in on this third episode of our Marvel Avengers Re-Watch as we discuss The Incredible Hulk. We debate whether Bruce Banner and The Hulk are two different beings or two halves of a whole. Which Hulk is the better Hulk? The Hulk from this film or the Avenger’s Hulk? We talk about why Abomination is stronger than The Hulk and what makes them different.

Final Episodes of Star Wars Rebels Are Coming Soon

The last half of the last season of Star Wars Rebels start Feb 19th, 2018! Lucasfilm has released this trailer for these last few episodes. We get the above mural with Father, Daughter, and Son from the Mortis trilogy of The Clone Wars, and then Darth Sidious makes an appearance! The trailer has lots of action, mystery, and hints at closure on some long running storylines. I can’t wait!

 

 

Justice League Release Date on Home Video Announced!

The Digital Copy and Blu Ray for Justice League is coming soon! Digital copy release is February 13th, and the Blu Ray/DVD release date is March 13th (no word on VHS yet…). I’m looking forward to the deleted scenes to hopefully enhance this movie to help it reach the potential it had before studio execs got involved to trim it down to 2 hours. I’m thinking it will be more Suicide Squad than Dawn of Justice, but anything to enhance the story is something I’ll be happy about whether it’s only 10 mins or hopefully 30 mins.

 

I’ll be getting the Target exclusive DigiBook edition (see above) to match the previous DC Movie DigiBook releases I’ve purchased in the past. The Best Buy exclusive steelbook version looks pretty sweet too. Interesting enough, Target has it listed on their website as Justice League part 1 (at least at the time of this post) which is probably an error, but I sure hope there’s some amazing surprise and that’s a leak. But, probably not.
