Thor 2: The Dark World – Trailer

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.

The first Thor was bad ass, and everyone who isn’t familiar with Thor’s story got introduced to him and the mythical Asgard. Now they take a step further with this Epic battle, that it seems that even Thor can’t win. This movie looks to be an Epic sequel, I love that Marvel keeps taking these movies to the next level to impress their anxious fans.

Review: The Avengers

Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. brings together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki and his army.

This was it, the one movie that brought them all together, every super hero to form the original Avengers. The long awaited movie was very much worth the wait, and Samuel L. Jackson played Nick Fury perfectly, a hard ass with a tough attitude. The story depicted depicted a threat in front of them they did not expect or know how to handle, but they came together as a team to face it, and the best part is the trailers gave nothing away. I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone, but one of the best parts for me is that they didn’t over do it with any specific character, and they had a lot of them, you have seen their movies so you know who these guys are, and even if you haven’t read the comics the story comes across perfectly. 142 minutes of pure joy, the action was nonstop from the beginning, I loved the S.H.I.E.L.D super fortress, there were a lot of tense moments and the comedic parts were played out perfectly which I loved. If you have seen the movie, you should definitely watch it.

The Avengers – Assemble

This has been a very good year for Marvel, and all their movies have been building up the different characters and the stories. And now The Avengers will soon be upon us, with that they have released the concept art of The Avengers. I’m not sure what or how the story line is going to go, all I know is that I am excited to see it, its been developing for a long time now and a lot of talent has gone into it.

Below you will find the individual concept art banners for The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) alongside Agent Coulson and Agent Maria Hill.

YoungJustice

Recently there have been a lot of good animated shows coming out. I have been a huge fan of the Justice League and follow it throughout the seasons and Justice League Unlimited, Im still hoping that they come up with another show of the Justice League. Because of the success of that show on Cartoon Network they have started to make high quality and somewhat mature animated shows, which both the young and old can relate to (I still I’m young). Whats good now is that the producers of these shows don’t think crappy animation and simple stories can satisfy kids, they know to be successful they have to engage them and produce quality shows. Below are some of the good shows I’m following, some are more serious then the others, and they are all different kinds of animation but great shows!

TheAvengersEMH

  • Young Justice (New DC Show, Fantastic)
  • Transformers Prime (A few episodes of CGI Animated Transformers)
  • Sym-Bionic Titan (Awesome Show)
  • Star Wars Clone Wars Season 3 (Can never get enough of Star Wars, I hope this show never ends!)
  • Iron Man: Armored Adventures (A Young Tony Stark is Interesting)
  • The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (Kicking Ass!)

Marvel iPad App

Marvel has turned out to be one of my favorite applications on the iPad, I have always had a love for comics but as I grew up I lost track of all the different Universes, plots and lists of new comics that kept coming up. With the emergence of the iPad they have provided the perfect platform for Comics, I find myself reading for hours and hours these days and I’m enjoying every moment of it, I feel like the Geek in me couldn’t be happier. I read the comics and keep going to the next issue of the series, everything is very organized and you can keep buying the next one. I passed by the Kinokonaya Book Store in Dubai and saw a few Marvel Comics and I really wish they would be released soon on the iPad, and I kept flipping through a few of the comics that were on the table. The best part is that you can go through the categories and view each series on its own making it easier to select the comics you want, and of course the sample is perfect so you get a slight feel of the comic before purchasing.

My Favorite Comics:

  • Hulk
  • Mighty Avengers
  • New Avengers
  • New X-Men
  • World War Hulk
  • X-23: Target X
  • X-Men: Age of Apocalypse

What Its Lacking:

  • More Comics, I seriously want all the comics that Marvel has to offer
  • I want the comics in higher resolution so when it goes screen to screen its crystal clear
  • The Comics are a bit over priced and add up very quickly, I think they should be charged between 50c to 99c, not the $2.00 for each comic, people would buy more at higher volume
  • A way to manage your comics off the iPad so when your done with it you can get rid of it instead of just deleting it. I just bought it, why would I delete it even if I need the space, feels like I’m throwing the comic in the trash, I would rather store it some where like I used to

Even with all these points I think that its a fantastic Application and a huge stepping stone to bring comics back to what it was. The iPad has revolutionized the way people interact with online activity and reading comics is being brought back in a way that takes advantage of all the features of the iPad making it easier and more fun to read.
