In #Trending, Sam will highlight and offer his 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:
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
The highly anticipated trailer for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has hit the net following a leak of the teaser being uploaded. Originally scheduled for a release of the April 20th, the director himself tweeted out the official footage to put an end to filmed footage being put online.
The second trailer for The Force Awakens has be released, showing some new faces and some old.
Not enough Star Wars for you? Ok, get a load of the trailer for the new Star Wars Battlefront, to be released in November.
Still not enough? Here’s a look at the second season of Star Wars Rebels then!
Want more!? Marvel has announced a new comic focusing on Lando Calrissian. The series will look at Lando’s days before he joined the Rebels with his sidekick Lobot beside him. Charles Soule is set to write, with the art by Alex Maleev. Here’s a look at the first cover.
The first full trailer for the MCUs newest addition, Ant-Man. Showing off some cool action and cheeky quips, the film is looking very promising. PS. That last scene really got me!
Fox has revealed a brand new trailer for the upcoming Fantastic Four, giving us a better a new look at the superpowers as well as a more action packed feel to it all. It has definately improved my initial impression towards the film.
Justice League: Gods & Monsters
Bruce Timm has returned with a new DC animated film to be released July 28. The new series follows the League in: “Journey to a divergent reality where the Justice League protects the planet — but answers to no one but themselves. Employing methods of intimidation and fear, this Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman deal brute force in the name of justice. In this alternate universe, Superman was not raised by the Kents in Smallville, the Caped Crusader is not Bruce Wayne, and Wonder Woman is not an Amazon warrior of Themyscira. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely ‘accidents,’ a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League — but is there a more powerful player operating from the shadows? It’s a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law?”
1)Guiness World Record for Most People Dressed as DC Heroes!: Warner Bros. and DC have set a new World Record for the most amount of people dressed up as DC superheroes at once. Kicking off in Australia and finishing up in Los Angeles, the event brought together thousands of fans all around the globe as they celebrated their love for their favourite DC characters.
2)Change of Director: Michelle MacLaren has left Wonder Woman, over ‘creative differences’, leaving the spot for Patty Jenkins to step in. There has been no official word of the details of MacLaren’s departure, however rumour has it that the studio was pushing for a more character driven story rather than the action epic that MacLaren had in mind. On the side of that, Scott Eastwood, has apparently been cast as Steve Trevor and is set to appear in both Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad.
3) Behind the Scenes of Deadpool: Footage from the filming of Deadpool has been put online, showing stunts from the upcoming movie. Also, check out this stunt guy’s sick moves.

7) A Series Regular Not Returning for New Season: WARNING SPOILERS IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE LATEST EPISODE OF ARROW ‘BROKEN ARROW’! If you have, you would know Roy Harper has been written off the show, with Colton Hayne’s contract ending at the end of this season. There is however still potential for the character to return, perhaps even joining the planned spin off.
