Spider-Man: No Way Home’s Trailer is Pretty Good as a 1960s Cartoon

Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer Remixed with 1967 Spidey Show

It’s debatable as to whether or not the ‘67 cartoon, was actually any good. As the first animated go at the hero, voiced by the late Paul Soles, it’s primarily lived on through many, many memes that you’ve seen on social media recently. Its three-season run had some episodes were absurd as hell at best and a total snooze at worst. It makes trailers like this one fascinating glimpses into history that may inspire younger viewers to check the show out and see how the hero has evolved in animation…y’know, assuming the show ever actually comes to Disney+.

Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into theaters on December 17.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Game Credits the Hell Out of Its In-Game Costumes

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Game: Skins and Costumes

Does it make the game an automatic hit, obviously not. But hey, isn’t it nice of them to do that instead of just providing an in-game description and then just stopping there, as many recent superhero games tend to do?

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy releases next week on October 26 for PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC.

The Batman: Caped Crusader Takes the Dark Knight to His Noir Roots

Batman Caped Crusader: Bruce Timm New Cartoon First Look

When the show was announced back in May, the three co-executive producers issued a joint statement: “We are beyond excited to be working together to bring this character back, to tell engrossing new stories in Gotham City. The series will be thrilling, cinematic, and evocative of Batman’s noir roots, while diving deeper into the psychology of these iconic characters. We cannot wait to share this new world.”

Right now, Batman: Caped Crusader is scheduled to air on both HBO Max and Cartoon Network, so it’s presumably going to be at least somewhat kid-friendly—however, the producers stressed repeatedly how much of a psychological dram the show is going to be, so who knows? We’ll fine out in 2022, presumably.

Shazam: Fury of the Gods Looks Like It Might Be Worth the Wait

Shazam Fury of the Gods Behind-the-Scenes Video: Helen Mirren

In addition, Fury of the Gods is adding mythological creatures and monsters to the mix, as well as a trip to the Realm of the Gods, which certainly looks like Olympus in the concept art seen in the behind-the-scenes video—although, again, if Solomon shows up in the movie “Realm” certainly feels more inclusive.

Happily, just about everybody from the original Shazam movie returned for the sequel; the extended Batson family includes Asher Ashmore as Billy, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña, and Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, along with their Shazam-ed counterparts (in the same order!) Zachary Levi, Adam Brody, Meagan Good, Ross Butler, D.J. Cortona, and Grace Fulton (doing double-duty as her superheroic self). Likewise, Marta Milans and Cooper Andrews return as their foster parents Rosa and Victor Vásquez, and Djimon Hounsou as the wizard Shazam.

Shazam: Fury of the Gods is currently set for release on June 2, 2023. That’s quite a while off, but as DC Fandome is abundantly showing, there’ll be plenty of things to watch between now and then.

The Batman’s Explosive New Trailer Looks Behind Bruce Wayne’s Furious Mask

The Batman New Trailer Released at DC Fandome 2021: Pattinson, Kravitz

Contrasting all the anger Bruce gets to unleash, we’ve got some moments of intimacy between him and Selina as she attempts to probe what kind of man sits behind the Batman’s angry mask. Additionally, we get proper good glimpses of Paul Dano as the Riddler (and his penchant for question marks in the silliest of places), Andy Serkis as Alfred, and even a few more good looks at Jeffrey Wright’s Commissioner Gordon, too. But for all our glimpses, above all the focus here is on that aforementioned explosive anger, as Bruce turns his new persona as the Dark Knight into a petrifying unstoppable force—whether it’s a spray of bullets (or six) or attempts to turn his new ride into scrap. Nothing, it seems, is going to stop this Batman… other than perhaps his own fury.

No doubt we’ll learn more as to what makes this latest Batman tick as we get closer to The Batman’s release date, March 4, 2022. Dead parents? I bet it’s dead parents.

Harley Quinn’s Season 3 ‘Eat, Bang, Kill Tour’ Is Coming… Eventually

Harley Quinn Season 3 Animated Teaser Released

There are a couple of different ways to interpret the significance of Harley and Ivy’s “eat, bang, kill tour,” but from the way Jim Gordon talks about the part, it seems as if they’re going to set out on a chaotic crime spree that’ll put Gotham’s other villains to shame. While most everything about the teaser points to Harley Quinn’s third season being a return to its familiar antics, what’s going to be particularly exciting to see is how the show handles new characters like Amanda Waller who feels like a perfect fit for the show’s tone and sensibilities. There’s no word yet on when specifically to expect it, but Harley Quinn’s third season will hit HBO Max at some point in 2022.

Our First Look at DC’s Naomi Is Ripped Right From the Comics

DC’s Naomi First Look at DC Fandome Features Superman

In DC’s Naomi #1 from writers Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker, and artist Jamal Campbell, Naomi’s one of the many locals who rushes to catch a glimpse of Superman as he makes his first appearance in Port Oswego ever, and the new clip seems more or less ripped from the source material. After Naomi receives a text message alerting to her Superman’s presence, she rushes to ditch her class and to see the blue blur in action. But where comics Naomi’s able to get a good look at the cape, the CW’s take on the character only makes it so far out of her school before she passes out for some reason.

What Naomi doesn’t know as her story begins is that she, much like Superman was as a child, is no ordinary adoptee, but rather a powerful hero in-in-the-making with a very important destiny. Because Superman factors so largely into Naomi’s origins, it’s going to be interesting to see whether the CW’s Naomi pulls its resident live-action Superman, Tyler Hoechlin, into the new series for at least one significant cameo to help kick it off, and if other big-named supers might also meet her in the future after the series premieres.

Young Justice: Phantoms Looks Like a Crisis on Animated Youths

Young Justice Phantoms Trailer, Episode Premiere DC Fandome 2021

Each season of Young Justice carries a subtitle with a double meaning, and Phantoms is no different. The trailer shows Beast Boy and Artemis (Stephanie Lemelin) at odds with their tragic pasts, and it wouldn’t be surprising if other characters are similarly going through it as well. We’re sure to find out when the season starts…today? Yes! The first two episodes are available right now on HBO Max, with a new episode every Thursday beginning on October 21. That’s a pretty sweet drop, and the season’s sure to be a lot of well-animated (and sometimes convoluted for its own good) fun.

But what about that poster revealed earlier this month, showing multiple earths arranged in a multiverse-like fashion? That’ll surely play out over the rest of the season, but the imagery wouldn’t exist for no reason. Given the show’s tendency to remix old and new comics concepts, it’ll be interesting to see how they potentially handle the larger cosmic mythology that’s been going through it in the comics over the last couple of years.

Titans is Returning for a Fourth Season of Superhero Trauma

Titans Renewed for Season 4 at DC Fandome 2021

That’s just the A-plot of the season, of course. The other season long story has seen Starfire (Anna Diop) try to make nice with her sister Blackfire (Damaris Lewis), and for a while it seemed to work! Blackfire was a Titan and had a boy toy in Superboy (Joshua Orpin), but it wasn’t to last before Blackfire went and absorbed her sister’s powers… which their parents originally transferred from Blackfire into Kory? Either way, Kory’s got blue light powers now, and Blackfire planned to return to Tamaran and become their queen. Except Superboy up and wrecked her ship, so she’s stranded on Earth. Wild!

Titans’ season three finale airs Thursday, October 21. Season four will presumably drop next year on HBO Max.
