Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Star Wars D23
The program teased it. We all expected it. But as the smoke cleared on the 2013 D23 Expo, there was not a single shred of Star Wars Episode VII news. Its absence left fans questioning not only Disney’s motives in using their new acquisition, Lucasfilm, to sell the event but also asking what the state of Star Wars Episode VII actually is.

The consensus seems to be director J.J. Abrams, executive producer and Lucasfilm CEO Kathleen Kennedy, screenwriter Michael Arndt and producers Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are simply not ready to reveal anything about Star Wars Episode VII. What’s troubling though is Disney did reveal images, concept art and more for films that’ll be out after well Episode VII. Plus, with the D23 Expo only happening every other year, the film will be out months before the next Expo. Those factors meant major disappoint for fans both at the convention and beyond.

So what does that all mean? Are Abrams and crew simply too busy to worry about marketing a film that hasn’t begun production yet, or are things not progressing in the manner everyone expected? Read More »

Something weird header

A few days before D23 kicked off this past weekend, Marvel and Disney hinted at the announcement of a new mystery project. Attendees were urged to “ask for something WEIRD” at the Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Pavilion, which launched a whole bunch of theorizing about what that something might be.

Now that the expo’s come and gone… well, we still don’t know that much more about the secretive endeavor, actually. Apparently, Disney prefers to take its sweet time doling out the details on this one. But we do have confirmation that it’s a comic book, and we have a first peek at some artwork for it. Hit the jump to check it out.

Hiddleston Hopkins D23

The D23 Expo has come and gone but the content just keeps on flowing. Marvel has posted videos of their presentations from the Live Action event, featuring cast members from Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as some discussion of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Unfortunately for people who weren’t in the room, the actual footage from the movies isn’t included. But you can get a good sense of how Marvel is selling their upcoming films to the Disney audience, and see stars like Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie along the way.
