It felt like this was a week where studios with comic book properties decided to reveal character from said properties. I’m not complaining, after all, it is the week DareDevil came out and the first showing of Avengers, so other studios took that chance to get themselves a little buzz.
5. Justice League Cast Reveal
Coming in at number 5 is a cast picture without anyone actually in costume, which is cool, but it doesn’t beat the rest of the reveals this week. However it does have Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, AKA Adibisi, AKA the man who I hope will end up winning the Game of Thrones, then tipping his crown to the side. He will be playing Killer Croc, and if he channels some of that Beware the Batman Killer Croc, then we’re in for a treat. This picture also made everyone ask where is Jared Leto, which is the first time that has happened.
4. Jared Leto as The Joker
And here he is taking the picture and channelling the classic Killing Joke cover. Yeah so his hair is gone, which is a shame, because it looked mad soft, but it is what it is. I’m cautious about this film, however I am looking forward to it, probably a bit more than Batman vs Superman, feel like with this one they can let loose a little bit.
3. DareDevil costume
I’ve written before about how i don’t actually hate Affleck’s DareDevil film, but this series looks like it takes it to another level (I haven’t had a chance to start it yet.) But part of me feels like this costume doesn’t actually suit him, I’m sure it looks better on screen but in this image, just not feeling it.
2. The Thing
Despite the lack of eyebrows, The Thing looks really good. I have this weird feeling, and it’s probably completely wrong, that this has a chance to exceed expectations, which isn’t too hard considering expectations for it are so low. I didn’t hate the trailer, it had an epic sci fi feel, while I would prefer a more light hearted take on the characters, you can’t write off something based just on the trailer, well you can, that’s kind of the point of trailers, but yeah, I’ll check it out.
Along with positive reviews for his part in Age of Ultron, this week has been a week of Vision. Marvel has kind of kept him under wraps until very recently, but we got a proper look at him this week, and what a look it is. Taking enough of the comics without looking too cartoony, this shot Vision and the hype around the first responses saying he is the person to look out for has me really excited, which I obviously already was, because it’s Avengers.
