Spider-Man: No Way Home (Trailer)

Spider-Man: No Way Home (Trailer)

The latest trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home reveals a bit too much plot for our taste, but also gives us glimpses of several familiar villains from Peter’s multiverse. In addition to Doc Ock, expect appearances from Green Goblin, Sandman, Electro, and more. The jury’s still out if we’ll get Toby Maguire or Andrew Garfield, though.

The Comic Book History of Shang-Chi

The Comic Book History of Shang-Chi

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings introduces the first new hero to Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But Shang-Chi has appeared in comic books since 1973. Alamo Drafthouse offers a retrospective on the character to give us a bit of background on the martial arts master before heading to the theater.

A-Train: Faster

A-Train: Faster

(Flashing Lights) When you’re faster than the speed of light, you occasionally run into people and turn them into a pile of goo. The Boys’ literal and figurative speed freak A-Train just dropped his own official music video, courtesy of Vought International, with Aimée Proal lending her powerhouse pop vocals.

Invincible Honest Trailer

Invincible Honest Trailer

(Gore) We were glued to our screen for every minute of Invincible season one. Robert Kirkman’s animated series has great characters, amazing action, visceral violence, and packs an emotional punch. Still, Screen Junkies managed to find a few things to poke fun at, especially the protagonist’s tendency to over-apologize.

Honest DCEU Trailer

Honest DCEU Trailer

To celebrate their 400th Honest Trailer, Screen Junkies takes on not one or two movies, but the entire DC Extended Universe – a series of questionably dark and brooding superhero movies that started with 2013’s Man of Steel. Despite their many flaws, we still keep coming back for more.

Jupiter’s Legacy (Trailer)

From Mark Millar, creator of Kingsman and Kick-Ass comes a Netflix series about the changing of the guard between the first generation of superheroes and their children.

Wu-Tang Clan’s Legion of Doom

Wu-Tang Clan’s Legion of Doom

MyloTheCat chopped up old Super Friends cartoons and made the Legion of Doom rap Wu-Tang Clan’s Uzi (Pinky Ring). Stars Sinestro as U-God, The Riddler as Raekwon, Scarecrow as Ghostface Killah, Lex Luthor as The RZA, Captain Cold as Method Man, Bizarro as Inspectah Deck, Black Manta as Masta Killa, and Brainiac as the GZA.

Superman on a Bicycle

Superman on a Bicycle

Riding a bicycle usually involves sitting down. Sure there’s the occasional standing pedal for extra power, but lying face down is definitely not a normal position. That’s not the case for rider Michael Guerra who shows how this daredevil position can dramatically reduce wind resistance, speeding him past other cyclists.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (Trailer 2)

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (Trailer 2)

Director Zack Snyder is finally releasing the Justice League he wanted to make. This trailer sees Batman rallying his fellow metahumans after a premonition of a terrifying threat to Earth, and teases new footage, including more screen time for Cyborg, baddie Darkseid, and the return of Joker. Premieres on HBO Max 3.18.2021.

Sculpting Homelander

Sculpting Homelander

If you watch The Boys, you know that Homelander is a serious egomaniac. So we imagine that he’d be thrilled that artist Dr. Garuda decided to make this picture-perfect clay sculpture to show off his Aryan good looks, all-American costume, and killer red eyes. Though Homie would prefer a towering 30-foot-tall sculpture of himself.

The History of The Joker

The History of The Joker

From his earliest comic book days to incarnations brought to life by Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Hamill, and Adam West, The Joker is one of the greatest supervillains in history. Warner Bros. interviewed filmmakers, authors, and actors to talk about what makes The Clown Prince of Crime tick.

Honest Trailer: The Boys

Honest Trailer: The Boys

(PG-13: Gore) With its over-the-top violence and incredibly questionable morality, the Amazon Prime series The Boys is definitely not for everyone. We enjoyed the wild ride for its first season, and are looking forward to seeing what’s next. Of course, Screen Junkies has a thing or two to say before season two kicks off.

Aquaman Trident Super Soaker

Aquaman Trident Super Soaker

The Hacksmith continues to build out his collection of superhero-inspired gadgets with a version of Aquaman’s trident that blasts streams of water from its three tips. He starts out with a small prototype, then scales up to a much more powerful full-size version. We’d like to see this connected to a larger water tank.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (Trailer)

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (Trailer)

After fan demand, HBO Max will be rolling out The Snyder Cut of Justice League in 2021. The four-ish hour version restores Snyder’s original vision, adding characters left on the cutting room floor, and giving more time and importance to others. Some $25 million is being spent to complete the effects, score, and editing of new footage.

The Suicide Squad: First Look

The Suicide Squad: First Look

After the trainwreck that was David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, DC attempts to hit the reset switch by putting Guardians of the Galaxy writer/director James Gunn at the helm. This time, our ragtag crew of antiheroes works their evil version or good, or is it good version of evil in an action-packed 1970s war movie. Time for roll call.

The Batman (Teaser)

The Batman (Teaser)

We no have our first really good look at Robert Pattinson’s take on Batman. With director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Dawn of/War for the Planet of the Apes) at the helm, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Andy Serkis as Alfred, we’re as stoked as ever for this new incarnation of The Dark Knight.

The Boys Season 2 (Trailer)
