Week in Review (12/1/13 – 12/7/12)

So this week was really active in the world of superhero and action movies. Being the site we are, we kinda should probably recap some of the news for you.


The Amazing Spiderman 2 Trailer (12/5/13):

We all knew the trailer was coming. Now that it’s here, wow…what a doozie!! We have the big reveal of the New Green Goblin and the mech suit Rhino. I’m liking what I’m seeing so far from these characters, but I still need some closer looks of them. Lot’s of great action shots are all throughout this trailer. The fight between Jaime Foxx’s Electro and Spiderman looks like it’s going to be epic. Plus there’s some cool Sinister Six easter eggs. Check it out below. Director Marc Webb and the cast even did a recap of the Amazing Spiderman 2 trailer.


Wonder Woman Casting (12/4/13):

There have been rumors about this character for the past few weeks, but now its official. According to Variety, Gal Gadot has been cast as the first big screen Wonder Woman in the sequel to this past summer’s Man of Steel Film. They also speculate that other Justice league members may make appearances as well. The movie will be released July 15th 2015.

X-Men: Apocalypse (12/5/13):

In the midst of all the week’s trailers and casting news, Brian Singer tweeted the following:

That can only mean one thing. They are finally planning on doing a film using Apocalypse as the villian. Personally this is something I’ve always wanted to see, but with such an emphasis on realism, I didn’t think it would ever happen. I guess the time is finally here. Fans of the X-Men will remember the iconic Age of Apocalypse storyline from the comics. Also, in all the animated incarnations of the x-men they did (or planned to do) big things wight he character. This is a great time to be an X-Men fan.


New 300: Rise of an Empire Trailer (12/4/13):

Given that Zach Snyder is not directing, I’m not amped for this film, but they dropped the newest trailer this week. No red flags yet, so let’s keep our fingers crossed. View the trailer below.
