the iron fist teaser

This is the teaser trailer for Marvel/Netflix's new Iron Fist series.  It was unveiled at this years San Diego Comic Con.  This is the last member to round off the Defenders street level hero team that Marvel has been putting together over the past few years on Netflix.  The full team includes: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and the Immortal Iron Fist

the luke cage trailer

Been loving Marvel's street level hero series on Netflix.  This includes both amazing seasons of Daredevil and the surprise hit, Jessica Jones.  After only getting a taste of the unbreakable-skinned hero (originally called "Power Man") in the Jessica Jones series, we now have our first look at the latest series for Luke Cage.  It comes out September 30th and features a 90s hip-hop score!

the best of e3: spiderman ps4

this was probably more of a surprise to me, rather than deserving of a "best of E3" title.  this comes partly due to the fact that we haven't seen any major Marvel game releases recently, and what we have seen in the past few years has been mediocre at best.  seeing Marvel partner with a studio like Insomniac (Ratchet & Clank, the Resistance series, Sunset Overdrive), tells me they are finally starting to approach their character properties in gaming with a higher regard to who publishes them.  i'm also kind of surprised at this game coming exclusively to PS4, sorry xbox and wii u owners.

the best of E3: resident evil 7

many will argue and say that this not a "best of E3" reveal, while also complaining at how non-Resident Evil it is.  i was particularly intrigued all the way through the reveal and was only surprised by the Resident Evil logo appearing at the end.  it looks like a truly haunting survival horror experience, even after i played the teaser demo (free to download for PS+ members now on PSN), i was still feeling chills.  so i'm really looking forward to it.  it's too early to tell how it ties into the previous installments, hopefully they can find a clever way to execute that.

the get down

a new series coming to Netflix this year to keep an eye on..

told through the lives and music of a ragtag crew of South Bronx teens, The Get Down is a mythic saga of the transformation of 1970s New York City. 

the martian

Mars has been highly considered by many to be the "first Earth" in our solar system.  it took only one monumental moment, billions and billions of years ago, when something destroyed Mars surface and atmosphere, preventing it from sustaining life.  that's of course not to say, that there was no trace of life before or after this cataclysmic event..

today, scientists and astronauts are delving deeper and getting even closer to cracking the mystery of Mars, adamantly seeking an understanding of what caused it's planetary deconstruction.  I believe they are hoping it will unlock new ways to help prevent a similar fate here on Earth, should it arise while our species reside here.

in Ridley Scott's new film, The Martian, releasing in October, we find a solitary astronaut fighting to sustain his life on the inhospitable surface of Mars.  while i do particularly love this director for his science fiction oriented films, i'm actually hoping for a more realistic approach on this one. 

the little engine that could

i'm really looking forward to seeing Ant-man this weekend!  i'm not the biggest fan of his character, not sure that anyone really is (the Hank Pym version in the comics is a bit of an ass).  nonetheless, it's shaping up to be Marvel's tiny, heartfelt, little engine that could.
