Fan recreates the SDCC Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer in animated form! [video]

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer was never released to the public and from comments made by Warner Bros. it looks like it will never be released. Warner Bros. stated it was only for those in attendance at San Diego Comic Con.

However, thanks to YouTuber "Free Will Revolution" we have this great animated recreation of the trailer seen at the convention. Maybe we'll see this trailer on the eventually DVD/Bluray but for now we will have to settle for fan recreated trailers and this one is pretty great. Enjoy!

Fans have eagerly been waiting for actress Adrianne Palicki to make her debut as Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird, on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and this Tuesday the wait will be over. The episode this Tuesday is titled "A Hen in the Wolf House" and I have a special clip to show you that shows Mockingbird's introduction to the show.

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel at the PaleyFest in New York City where they showed us the episode and we got to meet Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Ming-Na Wen (Agent May), Chloe Bennet (Skye), and Jeph Loeb (Executive Producer & Marvel writer) and get photos and autographs! I won't spoil anything for the episode but I'll say that Marvel fans are going to absolutely love it and there are a few concerns/questions that have popped up recently that are answered. Can't wait to see how everyone reacts to this episode!

Watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this Tuesday at 9pm ET.

Lindsey Stirling rocks the old West in her new steampunk-esque music video!

Violinist Lindsey Stirling has just released a new video for her song "Roundtable Rival" from her new album, Shatter, and it is incredible. This new video is set in the old West and has a bit of a steampunk feel to it. Watch as Lindsey defends her town from the villainous Durango Black as he attempts to rob the National Bank.

The video (although with a different setting) has a bit of a Scott Pilgrim feel to it as the two sides are battling it out with their instruments and using sound waves to attack each other. The song itself is pretty catchy and I would definitely recommend listening to it. (Why else would I be posting it? Ha!) Enjoy!

12 Star Wars fans who the Force wasn't exactly with. [video]

Whenever a Star Wars fan, no matter of their age, gets a toy lightsaber in their hands they all do the same thing; making buzzing noises and start swinging it around. This usually ends in some funny, and sometimes disastrous, results. This funny video from BuzzFeed shows us 12 fans who clearly did not have the Force running though them.
"Toy lightsabers can be more dangerous than real lightsabers."

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back - Uncut! [video]

Created by Casey Pugh, Star Wars: Uncut was widely popular. Now, officially approved by LucasFilm, Pugh has released the new video "The Empire Strikes Back - Uncut"! and it looks to be every bit as good as the original.

If you are unfamiliar with the Star Wars Uncut film project, it was created by Casey Pugh who let fans send in video submissions of their favorite 15 second clip of Star Wars using any means of media they wished. Entries included some amazing animations, children in costumes, stop motion, sock puppets and claymation (to name a few styles). Some fans shot scenes in their garage while wearing paper costumes while others went on location or created animations that are truly impressive. The entire film was shot and every 15 seconds you get a new media style. It made for a truly hilarious and fun experience. If you have not seen "Star Wars Uncut" you can watch it here.

Below you can watch the all new "The Empire Strikes Back - Uncut". This is a fan recreation of the film in its entirety. Enjoy!

LEGO Harry Potter: Umbridge's First Date! [video]

If you have ever been curious as to why Dolores Jane Umbridge from the Harry Potter franchise is such an awful person then the new Brotherhood Workshop video has your answer! The new, and hilarious, LEGO video gives fans a look at Umbridge's "first (and only) date".
"There is little doubt that Dolores Umbridge is the most hated character in the entire Harry Potter series. But why is she so horrible? I propose that Umbridge is the way she is today because her first (and only) date, went about as wrong as conceivably possible."
Enjoy!
