Here’s the latest trailer for “Justice League” from Comic-Con.

The film stars Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (the Flash), and Ray Fisher (Cyborg).

The San Diego Comic-Con has become a destination for comic and film lovers.

Huge films from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” to “Justice League” will be showing off footage, costumes and more.

But the most interesting conflict has little to do with those films.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the San Diego Comic-Con could be headed to trial against the organizers of the Salt Lake Comic-Con over whether Comic-Con should be trademark protected.

This could have huge ramifications as major cities from New York to Las Vegas to Portland have started hosting these conventions.

Big things are coming

This blog is back and in a big way. Look for a podcast and coverage from the Las Vegas Comic Con a few weeks ago, including an interview with Veronica Taylor, voice of Ash from Pokémon, and from the Rose City Comic Con in September. Also, look for movie reviews and thoughts on movie and video game news.

 

Here’s the latest trailer for the highly anticipated “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.

The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour HOffman, Jena Malone, Donald Sutherland, Stanley Tucci, Jeffrey Wright and more.

Francis Lawrence is directing.

Ahead of its Comic-Con panel, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” has a short little teaser featuring Electro. Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti and more, the sequel is directed by Marc Webb.

There will be no “Star Wars” news or panel of any kind from Comic-Con. Disney did confirm, however, that “Star Wars Episode VII” will have a “presence” at D23, which happens Aug. 9-11. People are expecting casting announcements, including the much rumored return of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher as Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. No concrete details have been released but the J.J. Abrams directed film will begin production in early 2014 so news has to come soon.

This is exciting news! Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter in “Captain America”) shared some great news with Fairfax. We know that she is making a cameo in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, but now news that Comic Con could have a little good news for fans: “So “Marvel have made sure that as part of Comi-Con [sic] there will be a little kind of snapshot as to what Peggy’s actually really capable of, which was finished here and which was great fun. Hopefully, it will lead to other things,” Atwell said.

Am I the only one that, if handled properly, a cameo of a much older Peggy Carter getting that one dance before she dies with Captain America, who is still looking the same, be incredibly emotional?

“Ant Man” gets release date

Director Edgar Wright has been teasing this for a while. His Comic-Con footage wowed fans. Now, Marvel is officially announcing “Ant Man” will hit theaters in November of 2015. That’s a little long. And, it’s AFTER “The Avengers” 2″. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Joss Whedon have Ant Man come into contact with Iron Man, Thor and company during that film.

Peter Jackson (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy) screened footage of “The Hobbit” at Comic-Con. There, he was asked if there would be more than two Hobbit films. The current plan is to have two: “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and “The Hobbit: There and Back Again”. Two is enough right? Here’s what Jackson had to say:

“That’s a discussion we’re having, yeah,” Jackson said. “We have certainly been talking to the studio about some of the material we can’t film, and we’ve been asking them so we can do a bit more filming next year. Which, I don’t know what would come of that, whether it’d be extended editions or whatnot. But those discussions are ongoing.

“I’d like to shoot a bunch more material that we [couldn’t] shoot. There’s so much good stuff in the appendices (at the end of The Return of the King) that we haven’t been able to squeeze into these movies,” Jackson said.

Well…the first Hobbit film is reportedly to be north of two and a half hours. So, strap yourselves in. Looks like Jackson is pushing for the three hour benchmark once again.
