#Trending In The World Of Comics: (Fantastic Trailer, Ghostbusters Reboot, Casting Decisions, & More!)

In #Trending I’ll highlight and offer my opinions on any comic-related news that occurred during the week. This will included news about comic books, comic-related movies, TV shows, video games, etc. including sharing any hot trailers that were released. Let’s begin:




Fantastic Four trailer hits!

Following a costume reveal,
the debut trailer for the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot has arrived. Check it out in all its glory below:

It’s pretty clear there’s a much darker, contemporary tone here. It seems a little like Interstellar with superpowers to me.

Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are our new Ghostbusters for the upcoming remake of the 1984 classic. The movie is said to be of a scarier tone that won’t be following any continuity from the original. The film is set to be out on July 22, 2016.

When I first saw the movie as a kid, I fell in love with it immediately. Pretty psyched for this, even though it will have nothing to do with the originals. My only issue is wondering if a scarier tone will detract from the comedy.



1) Bryne back for Apocalypse + Possible Fantastic Four crossover?Rose Byrne will be returning to play Moira MacTaggert in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Writer/Producer Simon Kinberg has also hinted of a possible crossover with Fox’s other hero franchise, the Fantastic Four, saying “If we wanted to find a way to connect them to the X-Men, we could.”

2) Marvel Casting NewsDoctor Who star, David Tennant, is joining the Marvel roster as the Purple Man in the upcoming Netflix series Marvel’s A.K.A Jessica JonesTransformers actress Rachael Taylor will be joining him as one of Marvel’s oldest female characters, Patsy Walker/Hellcat

3) DC Casting NewsMehcad Brooks has been cast as James Olsen in CBS’s Supergirl.

  1. You know, I feel strangely ambivalent about the new Ghostbusters. It’s good they’re making a major blockbuster-grade film with an all-women lead cast, sure, but I also feel like I enjoyed Ghostbusters enough thirty years ago I don’t much care whether I do it again.

    • I would have rather seen them do a mixed cast with maybe two male, two female. I’m not a big fan of the actresses cast either especially Melissa McCarthy. Her brand of humor does nothing for me…
