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:
Farewell Christopher Lee
This week, the world mourns the loss of an iconic actor. Sir Christopher Lee passed away at the age of 93, following respiratory problems and heart failure in a London Hospital. A war veteran, heavy metal singer and an amazing actor, Lee was a legend on and off the screen. His most iconic roles range from Dracula to Count Dooku to Saruman. His final film, Angels in Notting Hill has yet to be released.
Official BvS synoposis
The official synopsis for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has been released: “Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.”
Jon Bernthal has been cast to play the Punisher in the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil. Jeph Loeb had this to say: “Jon Bernthal brings an unmatched intensity to every role he takes on, with a potent blend of power, motivation and vulnerability that will connect with audiences. Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”
