In case it isn’t plainly obvious by the subject matter of 99.9% of my posts, I feed the needs of my inner child on a daily basis. The trailer announcing the upcoming Justice League VS Teen Titans movie, is akin to sitting down at an all-you-can-eat buffet. It didn’t just blow my mind, but the noggin holding it together. I’m especially pumped at the fact that the story line revolves around Raven and Trigun. I’ve always LOVED all that ish. I’ll be over here fangirl’ing till it arrives. Until then:
Is it wrong that I just wanna be the meat in their superhero sandwich? Le sigh…. oh I should probably talk about this.
Thank whichever guy recorded the teaser trailer to Batman VS Superman : Dawn of Justice, because this? IS AWESOME! Warner Bros is probably LIVID given the leak of this trailer as I don’t believe it was supposed to show up until a smidge later. I actually feel for them now that the Supercat is out of the Bag. Imagine all this work you put into making a truly awesome and engaging trailer, and it explodes all over social media in the worst quality possible.
That being said? YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!
I recommend watching this trailer ASAP as it’s already getting yanked from interwebs. You can do so on VidMe, HERE. I did however, take the liberty of grabbing some screenshots of the last part of the encounter when Bats and Supes square off and you just KNOW they’re about to throw down. I imagine kryptonite-lined batarangs will be flying everywhere.
“Do you bleed?”
** FANGIRL SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL **
EDIT: Zack Snyder and his awesome team JUST released the official and SUPER CLEAR teaser trailer.
There’s some thing wrong with the state of the world when the ability to succeed and make money in life seems mutually exclusive with the ability to pay for an education worth tens of thousands of dollars. If you end up getting a high paying job that goes up to a six figure salary (or if you’re very lucky, exceeds that) then paying off your student debts won’t be a challenge or seemingly endless journey. How many of these bachelor’s/master’s degree carrying “smarties” are that fortunate, though? You can’t tell me that all the thousands of college educated individuals land that kind of vocation out the gate. Or even several jobs after their first one.
I don’t know. Maybe I’m being cynical. I certainly don’t advocate not wanting an education or pursuing whatever steps one deems necessary in order to attain your goals and dreams. I just hate that there seems to be this premeditated path of success everyone must follow with very little divergence, lest they find themselves resigning to work they just happen to be good at, in order to pay the bills.
You know what I wanted to be when I grew up (besides being a super hero, of course)? Continue reading
There are brief moments in comic book movie history that make me squeal like a little Japanese School Girl; the primary manifestation of the aforementioned shriek would probably have to be the first time I witnessed just the teaser trailer for the X-Men movie. The high pitched noise I made in the theater wasn’t even diminished by the unfortunate bangs they gave Halle Berry as Storm. I mean, really. Come on guys. WTF?
But I digress.
Fast forward to the present and one image alone was able to draw out the fan girl in me and THAT moment was seeing Jason Momoa presented as the new Aquaman by Zack Snyder. Allow me to take a moment to gaze upon the sheer awesomeness of that image:
Jason Momoa | Aquaman
It’s like all my geeky, nerdy (albeit homoerotic) fantasies wrapped up in one delicious image. Granted, he doesn’t look exactly the way most people know Aquaman to be but that’s not to say that Zack Snyder’s vision of the character doesn’t pay homage to certain characteristics the King of the Seven Seas possesses. Besides, do we really want Aquaman to don a scale-ridden yellow unitard with green leggings?
Although, I DO need to give a nod to a more subtle tweaking of his classic costume like the two below. It’s totes adorbz and the artists’ renderings make the part of me that yearns to be a comic-penciler giddy and my palms kind of sweaty.
In any event and regardless of what people think of the new duds the fishy fisherman wears, this is a welcome addition to the DC Comic Universe; if for no other reason than how it clearly preempts the introduction of the Justice League.
I think it best to close this little post with additional images of the gorgeous example of man that is Jason Momoa. You’re welcome.
