MTV Movie Awards: 'Captain America: Civil War' and 'Suicide Squad' Debut New Previews


Amid the wild shenanigans during the 25th MTV Movie Awards, two highly anticipated comic book movies premiered new previews. The first was an exciting wall-to-wall action clip from Marvel's 'Captain America: Civil War.' The other was Warner Bros' new trailer for 'Suicide Squad' with new footage and if you're skittish don't worry it looked like fun.Take a look.


Chris Evans aka Captain America himself was in attendance to introduce the new clip. It features Cap, The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olson) infiltrating an enemy stronghold and wiping out each baddie with flair. Crossbones looks especially formidable with some impressive armor in a brief appearance. Looks like critics from the early screening were spot-on about the epic action in 'Captain America: Civil War' coming to theaters on May 5, 2016.


A secret government agency recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency.

Set to Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me" and Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz" the new 'Suicide Squad' trailer asks the question, “What if Superman had decided to fly down...grab the President out of the Oval office? Who would have stopped him?” To which Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) offers up a "team of bad people who...can do some good."

The trailer is made up of mostly new footage with more Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Deadshot (Will Smith), Diablo ( Jay Hernandez, Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) and plenty of Joker (Jared Leto). There's also another glimpse of Batman. 

With reports of reshoots recently to supposedly "lighten the mood" this teaser shows plenty of good-natured dialogue between the team. Skeptics who have complained about the dark and unpleasant tone of 'Batman V Superman' and are weary about 'Suicide Squad' probably don't have anything to worry about. So far it looks "fun" aplenty. 

'Suicide Squad' hits theaters August 5, 2016.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

REVIEW: 'Death or Glory' #2 by Rick Remender and Bengal

After a raucous debut, 'Death and Glory' takes a weird turn. Like a really weird turn. Imagine David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino had a baby and out came out issue two of this new series from Rick Remender and Bengal. The question is is that a good or bad thing?


DEATH OR GLORY #2  
Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Bengal Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: June 6, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
With a botched heist job, a bullet in her side, and all her money gone, Glory wrestles with what to do next. The cargo her ex-husband was trafficking wasn't drugs but people and after putting them all safely on a bus to Arizona, she's broke and being attended to by one of the Brazilians that stayed behind. Her scheme was pretty straight-forward - rob the money that the dirty sheriff was going to transport and use it for her dad's surgery. Easy peasy. Then it all went to hell as the sheriff recognized her, she dropped the money, and now no one is happy, not the sheri…

Wanted: Tall, Physical, Twenty-something Woman for 'Man of Steel 2'

Is Love in the Air for Batman?
I love the smell of new Batman/Superman movie rumors in the morning. The latest comes from El Mayimbe at Latino Review that presumes that Batman is getting a love interest based on the casting breakdown being circulated to talent agencies for the Man of Steel sequel. 
They’re looking for someone in their late 20s and are open to all ethnicities... But wait there is more. They’re not only looking for a good actress (like duh), but they’re being very specific and looking for an actress who is both tall and possesses physicality. Interesting. Tall. Physicality. Ben Affleck is after all 6’4″ and it would look awkward if they pair him up with someone who is 5’2″. When I think of tall actresses, I think of amazons like Charlize Theron who is 5’10″ and current it girl of the moment Adrianne Palicki who is 5’11″. It's difficult to say for what role this is for but certainly sounds like it'll involve action so it could be a girlfriend who also happens to b…
