Featuring John Cenastone (John Cena), Rey Mysteriopal (Rey Mysterio), The Undertaker, Mr. McMagma (Vince McMahon Including all-star appearances from The Boulder Twins (Brie and Nikki Bella) Marble Henry (Mark Henry) and Daniel Bry-Rock (Daniel Bryan), and of course The Flintstone Family

So You Want To be A SuperHero? Go To THE MARVEL EXPERIENCE !!!

Build as “The World’s First Hyper-Reality Tour”, THE MARVEL EXPERIENCE has arrived in Fair Lawn Park by the Cotton Bowl in Dallas from January 15th thru February 1st.

Is this just for kids? NO … Everything here can be done by the adults and if you are a geek you will love it …

The Experience will take 2 to 3 hours to cover everything. That of course depends on the crowds and how long you want to spend in the Training Center and the S.H.I.E.L.D. shop at the end…

The experience covers over three acres. You are Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D in training and help the Marvel Super-Heroes in defeating the forces of The Red Skull, Modok, Madam Hydra, The Super Adaptoid and his Adaptoid Army.

After getting your S.H.I.E.L.D., you get a briefing from Nick Fury about a new threat that has occurred. But before you can help, you need to get some training :-)

You enter the training center where you can take part in various exercises such as:

– Costume Customizer
– Adaptoid Excavation Site
– Hulk Out
– Mark 47 Flight Training
– The Spider-Man Climbing Wall
– The Avengers Encounter where you get to stand next to your favorite Avengers in Virtual Reality
– The Black Widow Agility Maze

One of cool things in that area are the replicas of many of the superhero (and super villain) items like Cap’s Shield, Thor’s Hammer. Iron Man Masks, The Falcon’s Wings, Green Goblin Pumpkin Bombs and more.

The Energy Cafe and your only chance to use the Restrooms are located in this area. NOTE: if you’re not absolutely hungry, dont buy food from the Energy Cafe. It was average at best and of course expensive.

You can stay in the Training Center for as long as you want which is great so you can take your time but once you leave this area you cant go back and the events that follow are time based.

Leaving the Training Center you visit the Transfer Dome where you learn more about the origins of the three main villains: The Red Skull, Modok, and Madam Hydra, and do a training mission exercise.

You then enter the Simularium. This is cutting edge 360 degree 3D dome and it lives up to the hype. The visuals here are amazing, definitely state of the art.

Before you enter the Transport Hanger, you get a safety video from your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man in only the way that Spider-Man does.

Finally you take flight to the S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier in a motion ride for the final showdown with the ultimate enemy but we wont tell you who that is. However you do have to help defeat it ;-)

Of course after everything is over you have to exist through the S.H.I.E.L.D. shop….

So go out the THE MARVEL EXPERIENCE. It’s definitely different, definitely fun, and you will enjoy it.

EXCELSIOR !!!

Take a Look at the Batman Vs. Robin Exclusive Trailer

Here is a first look at the new animated movie, Batman vs. Robin.

This trailer was released by DC and Warner Bros. It gives us our first look the 23rd DC Universe Original Movie. This one was inspired by the graphic novel Batman: The Court of the Owls.

Batman vs. Robin is set to premiere at WonderCon, held April 3-April 5 in Anaheim.

Batman Vs. Robin is being directed by Jay Oliva starring the voice talents of: Jason O’Mara (Batman), Stuart Allen (Robin/Damian Wayne), Sean Maher (Nightwing) and David McCallum (Alfred), Jeremy Sisto (Talon), “Weird Al” Yankovic (The Dollmaker), Grey Griffin (Samantha), Robin Atkin Downes (Grandmaster) and Peter Onorati (Draco).

 

Zachary Levi Will Star in HEROES REBORN Miniseries for NBC

NBC announced a sequel miniseries to Heroes called Heroes Reborn almost a year ago, but the reaction from fans was pretty mixed. Most people agree that the first season of Heroes was pretty solid, but then the quality of the storytelling began to dramatically decline. Some blame this on the writers’ strike and some blame this on bad writing in general, but Heroes never really regained its footing after that first season. Heroes Reborn was supposed to have a digital series rolled out in 2014 that introduced the new characters we’d be seeing in the upcoming show, but when that never happened, I assumed the network had scrapped plans for this miniseries altogether. But that’s apparently not the case.

TVLine reports that Chuck star Zachary Levi will lead the cast of the new show, and although he’s said to be playing a “key” role, specific details about his character remain secret for now. Here’s what Levi had to say:

“There are a few franchises I’ve always wanted to be a part of, and Heroes is one of them. Chuck gave me the opportunity to wield some fun powers, but an entire world with superpowers is a world I’ve always wanted to explore.

“I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with Tim [Kring], and the awesome team around him, in bringing this to life. Moreover, to be working with NBC again is such a reward in itself, as my bonds and relationships there are deep.”

Levi is likable and he seems like a good guy, but I must admit I’m sort of bummed that he’s returning to TV for this. I don’t have a lot of faith that Tim Kring will be able to pull off the concept of resurrecting this show, largely because the TV landscape has changed so much since Heroes first debuted in 2006. We’re practically in another era of television right now, and the idea of dropping an old show back into the cultural zeitgeist didn’t exactly pan out for Arrested Development, and that was far more beloved than Heroes.

The only other cast member who’s been confirmed for Heroes Reborn is Jack Coleman, who will reprise his role of Noah Bennett. The show is slated to premiere sometime in 2015. Here’s the synopsis that was released last year; we’ll see if that digital series ever materializes:

The saga behind the 2006 breakout series Heroes will continue as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. This highly anticipated 13-episode miniseries will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities. This series will be preceded by a new digital series that will introduce audiences to the new characters and storylines that will take the Heroes phenomenon to new places.

Flash Appreciation Day Petition – Sign Up Now

Fingers crossed,”Flash Appreciation Day” could soon be added to your calendar. How you ask? Well apparently earlier on this week the Nothing But Comics team submitted a petition to the White House, formally requesting that Obama honers the DC Comics character on February 11, 2015 by officially declaring it “Flash Appreciation Day”.

Now if that is all the information you need then you can click here to sign the petition. They only need 100,000 signatures by February 10, 2015 for it to be considered by the President so spread the word ! If you need more convincing is needed, listen to why  Nothing But Comics came about this task,

flash-118107

“The team wanted to honor this year’s 75th anniversary of several DC Comics characters, one of which was the Flash.  The first version of the Flash character appeared in Flash Comics #1 (January 1940).  Although the first iteration of the character (Jay Garrick, the “Golden Age” Flash) disappeared from comics in 1951, the character was revived in 1956 (Barry Allen, the “Silver Age” Flash) and inspired several other incarnations (Wally West and Bart Allen).  Nothing But Comics! wanted to honor the Flash in all his iterations, and focus public attention on this inspiring superhero.

In discussing how to proceed with this goal, we learned that some Flash fans choose to celebrate “Flash Appreciation Day” on February 11th of each year. This celebration is inspired by the animated Justice League Unlimited episode “Flash and Substance”, which aired on February 11, 2006.  In the episode, the citizens of Central City honor the Flash for his good deeds.  For the Flash’s 75th anniversary, we thought it would be great if we could get symbolic recognition of this unofficial Flash celebration from the U.S. head of state, and submitted our petition.”

This is the full text of the petition:

We petition the Obama Administration to:

Declare February 11, 2015 “Flash Appreciation Day” In Honor Of Comic Book Superhero The Flash

DC Comics superhero the Flash debuted in Flash Comics #1 (January 1940). The character’s legacy is impressive, and the hero’s adventures continue today in comics and on television. The Flash uses his powers of super-speed in the cause of justice, and has provided positive inspiration to his many fans for the past 75 years.

We, the fans of the Flash, ask the President of the United States to declare February 11, 2015 “Flash Appreciation Day” in order to honor the character’s inspirational example and values.

Tom Hardy Leaves Suicide Squad Film, Jake Gyllenhaal Eyed to Replace Him

David Ayer looks to have Gyllenhaal play Rick Flag after Hardy’s departure.

According to TheWrap, Jake Gyllenhaal, most recently the star of Nightcrawler, is being eyed by director David Ayer to replace Tom Hardy as Rick Flag. Recently, Hardy was forced to leave the film due to prior engagements, including Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s The Revenant as well as promoting Warner Bros’ Mad Max: Fury Road. Suicide Squad was expected to start filming this April, and it just doesn’t work with Hardy’s schedule.

Ayer has worked with Gyllenhaal before on the 2012 film End of Watch and has emerged as Ayer’s favorite for the part. As of this time, Warner Brothers has no comment on this and Gyllenhaal’s representative has not responded.

Suicide Squad follows a group of imprisoned super-villains working dangerous missions for a secret government agency in order to get clemency for their past actions. The film will star Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney asBoomerang, Morgot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as The Joker, and Cara Delevigne as Enchantress. Viola Davis is still in negotiations to play Amanda Waller, and Jesse Eisenberg is rumored to appear as Lex Luthor in this film as well.

Suicide Squad is set to release on August 6th, 2016.

Now Aunt May Is Spider-Man. Sorry, Spider-Ma’am.

It was certainly hinted at. They’ve already done it with Ben. But could Marvel be so bold?Yes, yes, they could. That character Spider Ma’am appearing in the Spider-Verse Team-Up is a parallel universe Aunt May.

Hey, she was Galactus’ Twinkie herald?in an old What If? comic. Why not?

Newsarama has the full preview of the final issue…

Official Ant-Man Website Launched

The official website for Marvels Ant-Man has been launched.

Now granted Ant-Mans official page is a little bare, but so was the Avengers: Age of Ultron

site when it first launched. But still this gives all the Ant loves out there a base to keep informed about everything Ant-Man, besides us ofcause. Along with the film’s trailer and its synopsis, the site has a gallery featuring (in my opinion) the Greatest Movie poster EVER !!! Which I have placed below the synopsis.

Oh and a little side not for when you click the link for the page, make sure your speakers are not on full power as it is a little noisy.

Click here for access to the Ant-Man the Website

“The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.”
