Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) reboot is a box office hit, so much so that a second movie is already slated to launch sometime in 2016. While many fans still have issue with the way the turtles look, trust us when we say things could have been a lot worse.
Anthony Francisco, a conceptual illustrator who recently worked on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Paramount’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation, was one of the artists in the running to design the new TMNT. As the renders below show, he completely discarded the funny and whimsical appearance of the classic turtles for an overly serious and, albeit, creepy look. As talented as he is, we are glad he didn’t get the gig. Let us know if you agree.
First Justice League Trailer is Entertaining, Heavy on Humor
Warner Bros. dropped a lot of great content at San Diego Comic Con, including an impressive first trailer for Wonder Woman and a teaser for the Justice League movie.
In the case of the Justice League trailer, it makes a very good impression. It’s heavy on humor between some of the world’s greatest superheroes but a little light on action, indicating a tonal difference between Justice League and Batman v Superman.
We also get a our first looks at The Flash and Cyborg in action — let us know what you think about their design…
I gotta say, after watching the trailer, I am much more optimistic about Justice League. Let’s just hope the finished movie is as entertaining.
Justice League: Part 1 is scheduled to hit theaters on November 17, 2017. It is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Mamoa, J.K. Simmons, Amber Heard, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher.
First Wonder Woman Trailer More Than Impresses
At San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros. revealed the first trailer for the Wonder Woman movie, giving comic book fans their first taste of what actress Gal Gadot’s powerful heroine will bring to the DC cinematic universe.
That’s right, after many false starts, a live-action Wonder Woman film is on its way and it looks better than we could have imagined…
What do you think?
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Lucy Davis, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, and Saïd Taghmaoui. It releases in theaters on June 23, 2017.

Second Doctor Strange Trailer Even Trippier Than First
Doctor Strange, one of my most anticipated movies of 2016, has received a second trailer, and it’s even trippier than the first one.
Revealed at San Diego Comic Con, the new trailer sheds more light on Stephen Strange’s journey from a mere surgeon to a powerful sorcerer on a mission to save the world.
Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) are the main highlights, but we also get an extended look at the movie’s main bad guy, Kaecilius, who is played by Mads Mikkelsen.
See all three of them in action in the trippy trailer…
I will be interesting to discover how Dr. Strange’s adventure impact the rest of the MCU. We suspect Marvel will use it to tie together the supernatural and downright fantasy elements (e.g. Guardians of the Galaxy) to the slightly more grounded, sci-fi events of The Avengers‘ world.
The Dr. Strange movie releases on October 28, 2016, in Europe and on November 4, 2016, in North America. What do you hope to see?
