New York Comic Con has come and gone, and while there wasn’t any particularly huge news to come out of the convention, there was still plenty of cool stuff to see. Some Pepsi Perfect bottles were handed out to Marty McFly cosplayers, but there were plenty more dressed up fans as a new music video illustrates.
The folks at Sneaky Zebra have put together a slick but simple little music video that shows off some of the best NYCC cosplay, but in a much more stylish way than snapping a photo and throwing it in a gallery. Just watch the first minute, and once you get to that shot of Rick Sanchez (of the incredible Rick and Morty) with the Meseeks, you’ll want to watch the whole thing. Read More »

More often than not, the actors and actresses who bring your favorite comic book characters to life on the big screen are fans just like you. They grew up idolizing certain superheroes, and it’s a dream for them to be playing them, just as it is for you to see them become as real as they can on film. However, they can’t enjoy fandom the way we can without being swamped by other fans who want to take pictures with them and want their autograph.
But plenty of stars have found an awesome workaround that helps them fit in with the masses of fans, even at a place that’s overrun with the most rabid of them: cosplay. Many an actor and actress have worn costumes in order to walk the showfloor at Comic-Con without being mobbed by fans, and Jared Leto and Mark Ruffalo have just joined their ranks. Read More »

The new Outcast trailer has answers for all of your burning questions. What show will Cinemax add to its line-up to actually make you tune in when The Knick isn’t airing? When will The Walking Dead mastermind Robert Kirkman take advantage of his TV clout and bring another series based on his work to the small screen? Where did that kid from Almost Famous go? The short answers: “Outcast,” “just about right now,” and “right here and ready to battle demons on weekly basis for your amusement.”
And with those pressing queries out of the way, you can watch the new Outcast trailer for yourself after the jump.

Mr. Robot was one of my favorite television shows of this year. From the series’ surprise twists and turns, to the interesting framing and composition, to the almost up-to-the-minute commentary on our modern world, to the refreshingly accurate look at computer systems and hacking. Sure it didn’t always hit a home run, and I think a lot of us saw that last twist coming a mile away, but it did so many things right. I’m excited to the see where the story goes in the second season, especially now that “the cat is out of the bag”.
Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail and some of the cast appeared at New York Comic Con over the weekend, and revealed some information on the second season. We also take a look at some of the previous quotes from Mr. Esmail and cast, as well as some rumors (including when we might expect to see the second season premiere). Hit the jump to find out what was revealed.

Thanks to trailers and official stills and concept art, we know exactly what the stars of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice look like. The mystery is long gone.
Or is it? This well-timed new featurette, coinciding with New York Comic-Con, gives us an extended look at the Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman costumes via a conversation with costume designer Michael Wilkinson. It turns out that there are still things to discover in these colorful duds, should you care to take a closer look.

New York Comic-Con has come and gone, bringing with it big movie news, TV news and lots and lots of collectibles. And while some booths chose to reveal their collectibles in advance, one that didn’t was the crew at Mondo. They preferred to keep their first trip to New York a well-kept secret until the convention opened on Thursday. Once that happened though, fans realized it was worth the wait as the famous poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse had brought posters from the Lord of the Rings, The Iron Giant, Shaun of the Dead, Kill Bill, Friday the 13th and more. That’s the good news. The better news is that not everything sold out so they’ll likely be online soon.
