Doctor Strange Teaser Trailer is Here!

Doctor-Strange-Logo-LightYesterday Marvel blessed us with our first real look at Doctor Strange. With all the hype over Captain America: Civil War, many forget that this movie could be a real eye-catcher with Benedict Cumberbatch in the leading role as Stephen Strange. But that’s enough for now. Just check out the trailer (and some cool new posters) if you haven’t already.

Though the PR train hasn’t hit full steam yet, some argue it doesn’t need to. Marvel may be a big enough name to carry this movie through at this point. No doubt they’re banking on that being a good thing for this film.Doctor-Strange-posters Doctor Strange isn’t exactly what you’d call a household name. Let’s hope that changes a bit after the Sorcerer Supreme comes to theaters on November 4, 2016.

vixen-header_uxmy.640

If you haven’t heard, The CW is expanding their superhero universe with a ton of new characters and shows; one of which is an animated short web series based on DC’s Vixen character.

As one of the CW Seed original series, Vixen follows a young Mari McCabe (Megalyn Echikunwoke) as she tries to learn more about her family’s history as her mystical totem necklace is the only link she has. Now it is only a five-minute weekly digital short so there’s not much else to say (yet). If you need a small fix over the next couple of months before The Flash and Arrow make their return, hit the link here and take a peek a Vixen… I mean it’s only five minutes, you can spare that… right?

Kamen Rider Ghost! Suit Design, Revealed!

Gandtheriders

Ever since news broke out about the confirmation of the Kamen Rider Brand’s next installment, Kamen Rider Ghost back in late April, fans have been itching to see the first reveal of the 17th Heisei Hero.  I dare say that it was well worth the wait!

Official first design art of the Kamen Rider Ghost suit, and concept art for the Ghost Rider System, scanned from a Japanese toy catalog.

With the utilization of his unique tool for transformation, the Ghost Driver and “Ghost Eyecon”, this Rider brings a sleek design to the table.  Along with the famous, modern bug eyes, he sports a black and orange color scheme– very fitting for the month of October.   As the art demonstrates, when the Ghost Eyecon is activated, a hooded ghost will appear and cloak the user of the Rider System, completing the change by adding the matching hooded jacket, which is a very nice touch.

Kamen Rider Ghost is scheduled to premier October 4th, but here is a chance we may see him sooner.  It is rumored that Ghost will make a traditional Neo-Heisei cameo appearance in the new Summer Movie, Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future.  Let’s hope it’s true, because I’m excited to see a demo of this new Rider’s abilities.  The next we expect is the reveal of the actor to play the role of the civilian.

What do you think of the design of the new Kamen Rider Ghost?  Let us know your thoughts! HENSHIN!
