New comics 20/03/14

Hey everybody so this is my first new comics video, im still working out a few kinks and the format that I will do them in but for now its a free for all for the ages. Feel free to discuss new stuff with me either here in the comments or in the comments on youtube, and dont forget to like and subscribe thanks for watching!


Over saturation

With the steady stream of clips and photos that the Amazing Spider-man two has been pumping out its got me thinking Is this all just too much. I myself was excited for the first trailer and definetly enjoyed my first view of the new film but as expected the trailers didnt stop there, with photos and clips and trailer apon trailer I gave up I stoped viewing them it was just too much. This over saturation of the content has really turned me off this film and thats a big deal I am a massive Spider-man fan he is my favourite Superhero but this constant stream of marketing content has really turned me off, let alone the fact that the film is pushing the idea of the three present villains which as we all know is an over saturation and something that has been a failure before.  thankfully director Mark Webb has commented that Rhino only appears in the film for a very short period, giving me a bit of a confidence boost. But really the marketing tactic of constantly pushing all three villains is in my opinion the wrong strategy there should have been a strong focus on Electro who plays the central villain and only lightly touch on the others. I know I have not seen the film yet but I think this strategy would have put long term fans minds at ease. Im still looking forward to the film but this marketing strategy has definetly lowered my expectations.

Gotham Logo and Synopsis

So Gotham has a logo and a synopsis which I have posted below. It looks like a very interesting show I just hope the emphasis on the relationship between bruce and Gordon isnt too strong as that is gonna be a hard relationship to portray and might get a tad repetative, either way Im excited to see how the show pans out.

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?

Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), “Gotham” follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.

Growing up in Gotham City’s surrounding suburbs, James Gordon (Ben McKenzie, “Southland,” “The O.C.”) romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney. Now, two weeks into his new job as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancée, Barbara Kean (Erin Richards, Open Grave, “Breaking In”), Gordon is living his dream – even as he hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid.

Brave, honest and ready to prove himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue, “Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”), as the two stumble upon the city’s highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes’ hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, Bruce (David Mazouz, “Touch”), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy’s profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer.

As he navigates the often-underhanded politics of Gotham’s criminal justice system, Gordon will confront imposing gang boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith, The Matrix films, “HawthoRNe,” Collateral), and many of the characters who will become some of fiction’s most renowned, enduring villains, including a teenaged Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman (acting newcomer Camren Bicondova) and Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor, “The Walking Dead,” Another Earth).

Although the crime drama will follow Gordon’s turbulent and singular rise through the Gotham City police department, led by Police Captain Sarah Essen (Zabryna Guevara, “Burn Notice”), it also will focus on the unlikely friendship Gordon forms with the young heir to the Wayne fortune, who is being raised by his unflappable butler, Alfred (Sean Pertwee, “Camelot,” “Elementary”). It is a friendship that will last them all of their lives, playing a crucial role in helping the young boy eventually become the crusader he’s destined to be.

Guardians Poster

guardians of the galaxy poster

So the Guardians have a new poster and its a little different to the other marketing materials currently released for the film but hey theres nothing wrong with a bit of change, whilst I think it doesnt hold the as well as the line up photo does I think this poster does its job to show the team off as a team in uniform and jeez you cant not love the tag line ‘You’re Welcome’ bringing the attitude of the Guardians for everyone to see.

New Guardians Photos

So we have three new stills from the Guardians fo the Galaxy movie to tide us over until the trailer is released Feburary 18th American time I dunno its Feb 18th here and nothing yet so I guess for me its more like Feb 19th, but anyways this movie jeez this movie is gonna be big I dont wana get over excited but I am.
