Blade Runner 2049 trailer breakdown 46

If we must return to the world of Blade Runner, a journey back with director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) and cinematographer Roger Deakins sounds like a trip worth taking. Based on the trailers, their vision of 2049 Los Angeles is every bit as gorgeous and as bleak as we’d hope. The clip shown at Comic-Con didn’t take Hall H to the streets or skies of LA; it was an exchange between Officer K (Ryan Gosling) and a replicant (Sylvia Hoeks) working with Neander Wallace (Jared Leto).

Below, check out our Blade Runner 2049 Comic-Con reaction.

The Gifted Trailer

While Marvel Studios is preparing to play with their weak-sauce version of mutants in the form of Inhumans over at ABC (which doesn’t look very good at all), it looks like FOX might be the place to go if you’re looking for a better angle on people who just so happen to have superpowers.

The Gifted is a new series written by Matt Nix (Burn Notice), directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men, X-Men: Days of Future Past), both also service as executive producers alongside X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner, X-Men franchise writer Simon Kinberg, as well as Jessica Jones and Daredevil producers Jeff Loeb and Jim Chory. It’s been coined as an X-Men series, but that’s not entirely accurate because, in this series, the X-Men have disappeared for reasons unknown, leaving other mutants to fend for themselves as a government organization hunts them down and prosecutes them for using their powers.

FOX brought The Gifted to San Diego Comic-Con to show off some new footage from the series, and they also debuted a new trailer introducing us to the mutants who will be on the run in this promising new comic book series coming to TV this fall. Read More »

Ben Affleck Leaving Batman

The internet has been awash in rumors that Ben Affleck was getting ready to hang up his cape as the Dark Knight of Gotham City and that Justice League would mark his final appearance as Batman. And even though we’ve heard similar stories through the grapevine, Affleck himself officially shot them down at San Diego Comic-Con today.

Ben Affleck joined other members of the Justice League cast on stage during the Warner Bros. panel and moderator Chris Hardwick (possibly looking to nip some mast Q&A questions in the bud) brought it up. Was Affleck done with The Batman? Would War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves have to find a new Bruce Wayne for the solo movie he’s developing? Read More »

aquaman Comic-Con

The next DC Comics movie from Warner Bros. Pictures may be Justice League, but several of the characters from the superhero squad have yet to get their own feature film. Wonder Wonder made her solo debut with box office that’s still rolling in this summer, but the next solo superhero adventure will takes us to see.

Aquaman will give the king of Atlantis his own movie for the first time in the character’s history. Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) already made his debut as the hero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will get even more screentime in Justice League, but fans are anxious to see how the character fares when he’s on his own. Warner Bros. gave fans a taste of what’s to come next year with a sneak peek at Aquaman, and you can find out more about it below. Read More »

Preacher Comic-Con Panel

AMC’s Preacher is based on one of the most popular (and controversial) comic books of the past few decades, so it’s right at home at Comic-Con.

Game of Thrones Comic-Con Panel

Due to a shifted production schedule, this year’s Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel arrived at a very interesting time. Season 7 of HBO’s fantasy drama (arguably the most popular show in the world) was still airing as members of the series’ cast assembled at the front of Hall H to talk about all things Westeros, a first for the show.

And because there was nothing gigantic to reveal beyond a brisk look at the episodes ahead (teasing the return of a major character), the panel was just an extended riffing session, with the various actors cutting loose, goofing off, and spitballing about various aspects of the show.
