The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: Discovering The Infinity!
Greetings, fellow fangirls and fanboys! The week we had our last news from San Diego Comic-Con, and the latest offerings of two geeky franchises get their official names. Also, first looks, teasers and clips! Here’s how the week started:
Habemus Captain Marvel! Congrats, Academy Award winner Brie Larson~ Also, Marvel are really into retro logos for their new phase, right?
And the most unnecessary retro of them all is the Thor: Ragnarok logo! Although having Hulk as a gladiator is quite 80s kitsch. Yep, we are getting Planet Hulk elements in Thor: Ragnarok, that was also totally confirmed during the Marvel Studio panel at SDCC.
Lucky bastards at Hall H at SDCC got to watch the very first footage of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Vulture was there for a little bit. Also, girls at Peter Parker’s highschool play “Fuck Marry Kill” with Marvel superheroes. And that’s totally realistic, guys! So yep, this is totally a high school movie with a superhero trying to find a date for homecoming.
Here’s the trailer of FX’s Legion, and it looks amazing, even if Dan Stevens lacks Legion’s iconic hairdo… Also, it was done by the same guys who did FX’s Fargo, and that’s a great show. So, what’s about? Well, in comics, Legion is an incredibly powerful mutant and the son of Charles Xavier, although I am not sure if that relation will be mentioned in the series. Here’s a synopsis:
Legion follows David Haller, a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and visions might be real.
Also, here’s the SDCC trailer of the second part of Vikings Season 4. And it’s that a new love interest for Katheryn Winnick’s Lagertha Lothbrok I see?
The Star Trek 50th anniversary panel happened at SDCC, and more details emerged on Bryan Fuller’s new Star Trek TV show for CBS. First, it is called Star Trek: Discovery! And we already have a first look at the ship and the official logo… and it is glorious! Also, yep, we are getting 13 episodes for the first season, and it will be one story that stretches across the whole thing. Star Trek: Discovery will be part of the Prime, or main timeline–unlike the newest movies. What we don’t know is exactly when Star Trek: Discovery will take place in the Prime timeline.
Another new stuff we got to watch? Sherlock series 4 trailer! Yep, there was a Sherlock panel at SDCC. Also, damn Toby Jones as Culverton Smith is so freaking creepy. And dammit Moriarty, stay dead please! BTW, here’s an appropriate trailer breakdown.
DC and Warner Bros. regaled us great moments at SDCC, not only we had great trailers from Wonder Woman and Justice League, they gave us 8 new Suicide Squad clips, showing lots of new footage, highlighting all the members in all their glory. You can see them here!
