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 …

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:

Now officially an ongoing! The whole fam damily is back! Billy visits a crooked politician. Dust and Fury make sweet bot-love in unsanitary locations. A ghost haunts Molly's visions of Rex.

Writer: Michael Moreci Artist: Hayden Sherman, Jason Wordie Letterer: Jim Campbell Publisher: Vault Comics Release Date: February 6, 2019 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
The second arc of Vault Comics' exceptional space opera "Wasted Space" blasts off in satisfying fashion when the gang crosses the galaxy to have a heart-to-heart with a one-percenter while Legion and the Creator contemplate the usefulness or lack thereof of humanity. It's another stellar chapter from Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, and Jason Wordie. 
'Wasted Space' has carved out a unique place for itself as more than just a sci-fi comic. It's one of the mo…

The Wonderful Women of Dynamite and Archie Join Forces in 'Red Sonja and Vampirella Meet Betty and Veronica'

Dynamite Entertainment announces the most unexpected and exciting crossover of the year...Red Sonja and Vampirella Meet Betty and Veronica!


Dynamite's first ever crossover with Archie Comics could not be any bigger. The flagship Women of Dynamite come face to face with Riverdale's leading ladies to solve a string of paranormal, unsolved murders. When Drakulon and Hyrkania drop off their famous vampire hunter and sword-wielding barbarian into the small, sleepy town something is surely afoot.


Amy Chu (Red Sonja, KISS: The End, Poison Ivy) returns to the fiery-haired She-Devil to write even more of a fish out of water tale than her fan-favorite Worlds Away arc. Joining her on the art side is Maria Laura Sanapo (DC Comics Bombshells, Charmed) who just drew the Vampirella Valentine's Day Special. Together these two women will chronicle the incomparable charm of their four leading ladies.


Both Dynamite and Archie have had great crossovers with the biggest publishers in the indus…
