What’s New? || Geek News

Happy Thursday people, if you were looking for some news that’s less Kim Kardashian and more Steve Rogers then you have certainly come to the right place.

Game Of Thrones Trailer Released

It feels like we’ve been here before but don’t worry, this is a different and much better trailer. First, I have to say that this is a red band trailer so… well, I mean if you watch Game Of Thrones it really shouldn’t be an issue for you but if you have impressionable young people in the vicinity, maybe don’t press play immediately. I am so excited for this season: season 5 picked up a lot of steam towards the end and it doesn’t look like they’re slowing down going into season 6.

MTV Movie Award Nominations Released

The MTV Movie awards are everything that the Oscars are not. They celebrate blockbusters and no matter how ridiculous they may be, they tend to be more reflective of the general viewing public than any other award show. With that said: you can check out this year’s nominees here.

Captain America: Civil War Will Be The Longest Marvel Movie To Date

This week AMC Theaters released Captain America: Civil War‘s run time and it comes in at a whopping 2 hours and 27 minutes, making it the longest Marvel film to date. It still manages to be fours minutes shorter than the upcoming Batman v Superman film but people are complaining. Honestly, at this point I’m glad that it’s so long – there are so many characters involved that without a long run time, everything would be rushed and there’s no way that it would be as good.

New Ghostbusters Trailer

The Ghostbusters international trailer was released yesterday and I honestly liked it (more than the first one) but I feel like I’m very alone in this stance: once again the Youtube video is mainly dislikes. Chris Hemsworth makes an appearance in this trailer and maybe it’s not the funniest trailer ever but it’s a reboot. They’re trying to placate original fans and bring in new ones. It’s a tricky balancing act.

First Supergirl/The Flash Crossover Episode Image

On March 28 the TV series, Supergirl and The Flash, are doing a crossover episode and I’m so excited. The first image from the episode has been released and it’s a recreation of a Superman/The Flash comic. It’s awesome, I’m incredibly happy. Look for yourself.

That’s all today – I’ll be back with news on Sunday but come back tonight for an Allegiant review. As usual:

Who do you want to win at the MTV Movie Awards? Do you hate the increasing run time of superhero movies? How hyped are you for this Supergirl/The Flash crossover? Let me know in the comments.
