DCUO Trailer

Sony’s new DC Universe Online multiplayer game will finally be released in November. I’ve often thought that a CGI superhero film would be the way to truly capture the grandeur of the comics, as it sells the fantasy much more easily. A live action adaptation means studios are more inclined to forego spandex in favour of more realistic leather costumes, but a CGI film would ┬ámake that redundant. A look at the new trailer below and you’ll know what I mean. Epic battles, drama and costumed characters fighting each other without holding back. Awesome stuff. Watch the trailer all the way to the end so it makes more sense.

All About The Avengers

That was the focus of events at Comic Con today, apart from an incident in which someone was stabbed in the eye with a pen earlier during the day. Samuel L. Jackson introduced the now official cast of the Avengers film, including new members Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) as archer Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo (Shutter Island) as Bruce Banner, and fan fave director Joss Whedon. Also below is the new logo for the 2012 film, as well as the Destroyer suit of armour seen on the Con floor that will be seen in next year’s Thor film.
