Welcome back to The Rundown, our daily breakdown on comic news stories we missed from the previous day. Have a link to share? Email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
– If you somehow missed the leaked trailer of the Deadpool movie from this year’s Comic Con, you won’t have to wait long to see it the way it’s meant to be seen (ie not filmed on a potato). According to this teaser which features Ryan Reynolds in costume as Deadpool doing his best ‘In A World…’ trailer voice, the full trailer will drop today! Well, he says tomorrow, but the teaser came out yesterday (Monday) meaning the full trailer will drop today (Tuesday).
– As if Legends Of Tomorrow wasn’t cool enough, CBR has reported that CW has cast their Hawkman. Falk Henschel will player Carter Hall and will debut on Arrow and The Flash in their next seasons before spinning off into Legends Of Tomorrow where he will join Ciara Renée as Hawkgirl. Hopefully it’ll look better than the last time the CW tried to do Hawkman
– Variey has reported that, after a lengthy lawsuit over who actually owned the film rights, Warner Bros. is moving ahead with a Dungeons & Dragons film. Not to use the same joke twice, but I just hope it’ll be better than the last attempt.
– In what might be one of the unluckiest film productions I’ve seen in a long time, the Hollywood Reporter are reporting that the remake of The Crow will likely be put on hold as the production company, Relativity Media, has filed for bankruptcy. Will this film ever get made? Science doesn’t know.
– At first this was going to be a hype segment, then I watched the trailer for the Guardians Of The Galaxy animated trailer which is trying to cash in on the movie’s success so hard it even copies the trailer. This is amazingly, hilariously terrible and I’m so sad Boomb Tube is no longer a thing.
– Ever wanted to reread Marvel’s “Civil War”, but without all the gorgeous Steve McNiven art and just the overbloated and misguided political metaphors? Well, you’re in luck because Bleeding Cool has a preview of the prose novel adaptation of the comic and it’s just as bland as you’re expecting it to be. Does anyone even read these novels? Can anyone explain to me why they exist?
