Begun the Secret Wars have!

Secret Wars #1

After it became apparent that DC’s Convergence is one of the most phoned in “events” in comic book history I became a bit apprehensive for the start of Secret Wars. Thankfully I should learn not to doubt the talent of Jonathan Hickman, Esad Ribic and Co. who have blown me away with the opening issue of Secret Wars.

Secret Wars is something builds on what has been happening with Marvel’s line of characters over the past few years. It is also an event that respects its readers and their knowledge of the Marvel Universe’s history. It is not just an excuse to throw character at each other to try and make drama. There is depth and complexity to the big explosions and endless fighting.

But first, a warning before we go any further: THERE BE SPOILERS AHEAD!

Marvel’s Phase 1 & 2 – A Look Back

This video is basically 5 minutes of Marvel saying, “Hey look at how awesome we are at making Comic Book Movies!” But it is five very good minutes of Marvel showing how much they have achieved with their films over the past six years and that they are only just getting started.

Fair warning though at the end there is a mild spoiler for something that happens in Guardians of the Galaxy so if you haven’t watched it yet (and why haven’t you watched Guardians yet?!) stay clear until you do.

New Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer!

If you are a frequent visitor to this site you will see that I am very excited for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie from Marvel Studios. (Some might say overly excited but they can flark off!) Not only is Guardians yet another comic book I love being given the big screen treatment but it is also a turning point for the grand experiment that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Perhaps Marvel’s biggest gamble since the original plan to use a few movies to build to the Avengers (aka. The Best Film Ever Made) Guardians is based on a set of characters that not many people know of. Even for those that do know of them, even less of them have read the source material.

Guardians of the Galaxy Character Profiles and Poster!

guardians-of-the-galaxy-poster

 

Not content to let us all recover from the first trailer Marvel have released the first poster for Guardians of the Galaxy along with a bunch of very quick character profiles.

The poster emphasises Marvel’s past successes as a way to garner interest and the character profiles intercut footage from the trailer with behind the scenes clips and interviews. It is all fairly standard but helps give a taste for those not versed in who this ragtag group of heroes are.

Most importantly though is that we get to see a snippet of Bradley Cooper giving his voice to Rocket Raccoon. One thing we do not get however is Vin Diesel saying, “I am Groot” which makes me sad…

It’s finally here! The Guardians of the Galaxy are here and in a big way and it is about damn time!

This trailer gives us a perfect taste of what is to come in the final film. It has got that cool grimy sci-fi look that I like, explosions (lots of explosions), a diverse set of characters and aliens, 80s music and of course, raccoons. It is gonna be awesome!
