The long-awaited trailer for Thor: The Dark World is finally here, offering a look at the main characters in the film, like Malekith (played by Christopher Eccleston.) Thor: The Dark World hits theaters on November 8, 2013.

Just as Marvels “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvels “Thor” and “Marvels The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Check out the trailer after the break!

Scientifically Accurate Spider-Man

Look, Peter Parker may be a wimpy nerd and not so superhero-like, but just be glad that the majority of his spider powers are internal. Scientifically-accurate Spider-Man is an alternate take on what the spiderfication of Mr. Parker could have looked like if were moer true to form. You know, stuff like extra eyes, a bunch of hair, and webbing coming out of a different orifice. Check out the video below for a hilarious look at Scientifically-accurate Spider-Man. Just put the kids to bed first.

Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes

As if we’ve let television series slip out of our thoughts, AMC has consistently

reminded us about

reported on the crew’s production.

Earlier today, the network posted its first image of Andrew Lincoln as the comic book’s troubled hero, Rick Grimes. Although I was really hoping that they’d cast someone who looked a little more like Rick, I must quell such lame fangirl thoughts and put my faith in Frank Darabont and crew (I’m guessing that Lincoln’s acting chops must have compensated for it, though).

Do you think that he’s a believable Rick? Oh and seriously—check out the zombie school video after the jump.

First Look: The Walking Dead Production Begins

The Walking Dead

Nearly a year after Robert Kirkman sealed the deal with Frank Darabont, production has finally begun on The Walking Dead television series. As filming commenced in Atlanta, AMC released photos of the zombies ready to walk on set.

AMC also posted a video of director/writer/producer Frank Darabont talking about his interest in the undead story (in case you were wondering how one goes from directing The Green Mile to researching George Romero films). His best line? “We hope to do for zombies what has done for advertising.”

Second Scott Pilgrim Trailer Released

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Movies, Reviews, Independent

Memorial Day 2010 has been good to fans of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim comic: out now is a second trailer for the film adaptation, directed by Shaun of the Dead‘s Edgar Wright and starring Michael Cera as the eponymous character.

In this trailer, viewers get a better look at Jason Schwartzman’s character, who is the seventh, final boyfriend Pilgrim must defeat to get with Ramona. I love Wright and his editing, but I’m not particularly convinced that the soft-spoken Cera portrays Pilgrim too well. He looks a little too silly in the action scenes…

On a different note, where’s Knives?!

VIDEO: Alan Moore Rocks Out With Retro Spankees

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: DC Comics, Independent

Even though he has a musical history, it’s quite easy to forget with all of the memorable novels and comic books Alan Moore has written. Well, now we’ve got a video to help us not forget!

At a launch party for his latest fanzine, Dodgem Logic, Moore jumped on stage with a band featured on the CD accompanying the magazine, the Retro Spankees. Moore was quick with his literary style in the intro to one of the songs: “This next number, it’s about caring… about people. It’s about caring about people so that you want to… protect them. It’s about caring about people so that you want to protect them by unleashing a storm of malefic evil presences from the pit of Hell against anybody who is distressing you. This is to everybody—it’s called ‘Jonny Fortunate.’”

Check out another performance after the break!
