Marvel’s The Defenders – Official Final Trailer

The Defenders.jpg

Holy shit, the time is almost upon us!

Since San Diego Comic Con 2017, we have been getting a lot of activity surrounding Netflix’s upcoming Marvel project “The Defenders”, which is something I have been so stoked for and can’t wait to see this show! The idea of seeing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist all on screen together, as a fan, is going to be something pretty epic and awesome. Ever since I knew that Netflix would be making a series of Marvel shows, straight away I was thinking that The Defenders must be on the table and I’m so glad this is what they’ve been working towards!

Okay here we go, here’s my coverage of London Film and Comic Con 2017 day 2! The first day was pretty epic and I was already buzzing from how brilliant the Friday went, so to say I was pumped for the Saturday would be an understatement!

So let’s jump straight into it shall we?

SATURDAY

I already knew my way around the convention having spent all day there on Friday but when I got to the guest floor to get my VQ tickets, it appeared that some of the guests had moved around to may room for the weekend appearances and that completely threw my shit out of whack! Luckily the bigger guests were all in the same place so I managed to find my bearings pretty quick and then I decided to tackle my first autograph signing of the day.

So it’s been a week now since London Film and Comic Con 2017 and I’m still recovering from the weekend, as it was packed full for me! Had such an amazing time at the con meeting some really epic guests and just had an all around great time across the three day weekend. Essentially this post is going to be a round up of some of my personal favourite moments from the weekend, including meeting guests, talks I attended and the photo ops that I went to. I’m going to be doing coverage of all three days otherwise this will turn into a dissertation just for Comic Con! So first up I’m going to start with my favourite moments from Friday.

Without further ado let’s get to it shall we?

London Film and Comic Con 2017 – Preparation is Key!

LFCC_2017.jpg

Here I am again, finding myself getting ready for another awesome weekend of nerdy greatness! It’s that time of year where London Film and Comic Con 2017 is coming to Olympia for it’s summer show.

This is probably my fourth time attending this convention but it’s the first time that I am properly going all out to meet guests and get photo ops with them, will be top Heroes and Villains Fan Fest? That would be a tough question to answer as I had the time of my life at Heroes and Villains so I’m hoping I enjoy myself at LFCC this year. The event, run by Showmasters, is a convention that is dedicated to film, TV shows and comics as the name of the event entitles. Besides Heroes and Villains, this is the convention I prefer over the likes of MCM as I am more into my film, TV shows and comic books so it’s the perfect event for me as a fan.

San Diego Comic Con 2017 – Arrowverse New Season Trailer Reveals

Image-133.jpg

It’s that time of year again folks…..San Diego Comic Con 2017 is finally upon us!

This is the time of year that is the best time to be a comic book/movie/tv/gaming fan as we get the big reveals for upcoming projects coming out within the next year. I’ve always wanted to attend San Diego but sadly another year has arrived and I find myself watching the coverage from a computer screen, nevertheless I still geek out to all the awesomeness that has been coming out of Comic Con this year! The part I always look forward to is the big reveals for the CW shows, to be more precise the Arrowverse shows in particular. If you didn’t know I am a huge fan of Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl so I was really looking forward to tuning into the panels at San Diego, to see all the stars, producers and writers of the shows give some juicy details for the upcoming new seasons.

So in this post I’m just briefly going to talk about the trailers and what we can expect to see when the shows return in October!

DC Universe Rebirth: Batman Beyond Volume 1: Escaping the Grave Review

Batman-Beyond-Rebirth.jpg

Here we go, my first book review…….well kind of!!

For those of you who don’t read comics, DC comics relaunched their comic series with the DC Universe: Rebirth. This is where it gets confusing, even for me who is a veteran when it comes to reading and understanding comic books. Rebirth is not a reboot as people previously thought, instead it is a continuation of the New 52 which launched back in 2011 which was a reboot of all the character’s individual comic series. So all the things that happened in New 52 is cannon and still happened. To sum up, DC Rebirth launches from the way the New 52 came to an end and it feels like the DC universe is in a version similar to the events of Flashpoint which is pretty cool. It does include continuity from the New 52 but these are stories that haven’t been told for and I think it was a way for the smaller titles to attract more attention.

The Walking Dead: A Telltale Game Series – A New Frontier Episode 2: Ties That Bind Part 2 Review

A New Frontier Episode 2: Ties That Bind Part 2

Welcome back survivors!

I’m carrying on with my review of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Game Series – A New Frontier with episode 2 titled Ties That Bind Part 2, so I’m gonna jump straight into it.

The second episode in A New Frontier picks up pretty much where part 1 of Ties That Bind ended, picking up the pace that was set in the season opener. I did feel like this episode was closely more linked to what I love about The Walking Dead and does a solid job of solidifying the brilliant story plots that Telltale have formulated in their games since the first game. It does a great job of building on the foundation set in the season premiere and also what occurred in the first two seasons of The Walking Dead, one thing for sure is that the ending of this two part episode has really set the scene and is setting up what could be an amazing season for the game. More so than ever with these games, I do feel like the choices I will make throughout the story really will matter and I will have to tread carefully as the plot develops. As a gamer, I like to think strategically and in these games I think my choices will be more important than the previous two games.

Into The Badlands S02 E10 – “Wolf’s Breath, Dragon Fire” Review

bad_210_ap_1209_-0226-rt.jpg

I freaking love Into the Badlands!!!!!!

Whoa….not sure where that little outburst came from, but yeah….Into the Badlands is seriously one of my favourite shows on TV right now! I remember back in 2015 when AMC announced their slate of upcoming shows this was one on the list and when I saw the teaser trailer, I knew I would be jumping straight on this show! I am a massive fans of martial arts and some of my favourite actors/martial artists are Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa and leading man in Into the Badlands Daniel Wu. So when I heard about a martial arts action show set in a post-apocalyptic world it was just something I had to check out.

This year we got a full 10 episode second season for Into the Badlands and holy shit has it been a very consistent and awesome season. I just never get tired of this show as it has everything in it that for me personally, has the makings of a brilliant show! This week’s Season 2 finale titled “Wolf’s Breath, Dragon Fire” is a culmination leading up to Sonny taking on Quinn, the Baron that trained him as a clipper, and saving his son and his love interest Vale from the crazy Baron played by Marton Csokas.

What’s next for The Flash going into Season 4?

flash-season-3-flashpoint-broken.jpg

It’s been almost a month now since The Flash’s Season 3 finale aired and we saw that Barry paid the ultimate price for creating the Flashpoint timeline, as well as the evil speedster Savitar. We saw our hero retreating to the Speed Force, paying for his actions which raises the question, who will protect Central City without the Scarlet Speedster?! With the way Season 3 ended, I began to think that the show may be starting to really draw from the comic books moving forward into next season. It could even result in Wally West stepping up and be the driving force with the absence of Barry Allen.

The Flash S03 E23 – “Finish Line” Review

fla323c_0003.jpg

Dammit Barry, what did you do?!

So it’s been a few weeks now since The Flash’s Season 3 finale aired and I’m still trying to process what happened in the episode. I think that the third season of The Flash has been solid, with the continuing theme of Flashpoint running throughout the course of the season. I do think that these last few episodes in particular have been strong leading up until the finale. It has done a solid job in Barry and Team Flash fighting back against the darkness in the conflict with Savitar, helping us to understand Barry’s new foe and why he is a very understandable and relatable character. “Finish Line” was the dramatic ending we needed for Season 3, which is going to be a massive game-changer leading into the next season of the show.
