The Russo Brothers are set to appear in "The Game Awards"; Avengers 4 Trailer to be shown then?

It looks like hype and anticipation for the next Avengers movie will skyrocket again next week if The Russo Brothers have anything to reveal about it, as Joe and Anthony Russo have been confirmed as livestream guests for this year's "The Game Awards" - as confirmed by host and mastermind Geoff Keighley on his official Twitter page! The Russos have been quite busy doing final production work on the as of yet untitled Avengers sequel, even going as far as to not say anything regarding the mysterious MCU film during a Q&A segment following a special screening of "Avengers: Infinity War" in Archlight Cinemas (which you an read about in detail from Superherohype here).

Having The Russos appear in "The Game Awards" - one of the last major events and one highlighting the best and latest video games out there - only furthers the chances that the very first "Avengers 4" trailer will appear there. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige did reassure fans that the first trailer "would come out before the end of 2018", so this is one of those spots before the year ends. Let's hope it happens when The Game Awards broadcasts on December 6 at 8:30pm EST/ 5:30 PST.

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige pens tribute to Stan Lee

The passing of Stan Lee has been hard to many fans of the Marvel Comics' writer and legend, and even more so for those he has inspired to bring some of his greatest creations to life in the big screen. In a fitting tribute to "The Man" that was featured in Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige has written a farewell letter describing his final meeting with Stan.

 “I went to his house to see him, and he reminisced about the cameos,” Feige writes of his last meeting with Lee. We were talking about what was coming up, always looking to the future. Did he know that his time was running out? I don’t know. In hindsight, he was slightly more wistful than I’d seen him before. He talked about the past more than I had ever heard him talk about the past. So maybe on some level, he knew."

Remembering Stan Lee - the legend who co-created Spider-Man and other Marvel heroes passes away

It's hard to imagine a world without Stan Lee. The man, famously known for helping bring to life and writing characters such as The Amazing Spider-Man, The X-Men, Fantastic Four, and The Avengers has left an everlasting mark in the world of popculture, and his iconic visage has been seen in all forms of media - whether it be a picture of him standing proud and jolly alongside one of his creations, or acting in a cameo role in one of Marvel's big blockbuster films.

Sadly on November 12, the world said goodbye to this icon and real-life hero - who passed away at 95 and left a lot of fans across the world sad and in deep mourning.

Whether you met him in person or saw him through different interviews conducted through the years, Stan definitely had that presence and character that made you feel awed at the things he did, as well as feeling at ease whenever he went into his storytelling mode phase. He was an entertainer, and gave a lot of people the ability to look beyond real world problems through the pages of comics - where his characters told stories that people could relate to despite having these impossible abilities that many dared to dream and only hoped to have in life. Over six decades since he created these heroes and left his mark in the comic industry and beyond, Stan has truly become a key figure we will always remember. We're all "True Believers" thanks to his contributions, and many generations of readers will always be indebted to his works for being AMAZING.

As a tribute, Marvel - the company he helped build up to what it is now, released a loving tribute that looks at "The Man" and his legacy to fans and colleagues worldwide.

Marvel Remembers the Legacy of Stan Lee

Rest in Peace, and Thank You Stan Lee.

Castlevania Season 2: Bloody Tears were literally shed for this Netflix masterpiece

It's been almost two weeks since Netflix and producer Adi Shankar unleashed the second season of their animated series adaptation of "Castlevania" - the beloved action adventure series that sees players take on the role of Vampire Hunters traversing through Dracula's namesake castle and facing the Lord of Darkness himself. This show is nothing short of PERFECTION - premiering on July 2017 on the streaming service with four episodes - before eventually getting an expanded eight episode run this year with the sophomore season.

Castlevania: Season 2 | Official Trailer

Developed originally as a film beginning as early as 2007, Castlevania lingered on in developmental hell until 2015 - when it was resurrected and eventually began new life as a planned animated adult television series. Warren Ellis served as the writer of the series - adapting concepts and themes largely based from Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, but telling a wholly original story the fleshed out the adventures of Treveor Belmont, Sypha, Alucard, and of course Dracula and his army. The first season served as a slow introduction that built up the plot and narrative of Dracula's mission of vengeance after his wife Lisa is burned in the stake - which eventually sets up his inevitable confrontation with the Vampire Hunters and his estranged son - who honors his mother's wish to leave humanity unharmed by her husband's fury. Season 2 successfully expands the story and tuned up the band - introducing new characters and story arcs while maintaining the main plot - with Episode 7 serving as the "main course" that fans of the series have waited for. You just have to see it to believe it.

With Season 2 currently streaming and offering some good ol' Vampire Killer goodness to fans, Castlevania has proven itself to be one heck of a video game adaptation - possibly even THE BEST ONE made to date. Season 3 has been confirmed and is expected to come around within the next year or so. We'll just have to wait and see where the adventure to defeat the forces of evil takes us next. Catch this now on Netflix.

The Walking Dead: "What Comes After" is Rick's final episode in the series, AMC announces trilogy of films to continue his story

It's the end of an era for fans of "The Walking Dead", as Andrew Lincoln ended his tenure in the series as series' lead character Rick Grimes with this past Sunday's episode "What Comes After" - which also marked the last episode of Lauren Cohan/ Maggie Greene and Pollyanna McIntosh/ Anne for this season. It was both bittersweet and sad to see "Officer Friendly" exit the series - but Lincoln himself announced that he was going to focus more on family life and decided to depart the series that helped make him a household name on a high note.

However if you watched the episode, you'd realize that wouldn't be the true last appearance of Lincoln as Grimes. Perhaps in a move that will be easier than handling a TV Series schedule, a trilogy of "Rick Grimes" films have been announced by AMC according to a report by Deadline, signifying "The End of the Beginning" according to Lincoln himself in the "Talking Dead" episode after his final TV Series appearance. What happens next is anyone's guess... But it's clear now we haven't seen the last of Rick.

The Walking Dead currently airs its ninth season on AMC.

Now time-skipping to a point after the events of "All-Out War" - the communities of Alexandria, The Sanctuary, The Kingdom, and The Hilltop struggle to co-exist and survive under the leadership of Rick and his allies - but it's easier said than done as the SDCC' 18 trailer shows that there are inner conflicts and demons that still need to be confronted by the survivors, as well as a new threat besides the living dead.

Happy 10th Anniversary, The Dark Knight!

On this week 10 years ago, the long awaited sequel to Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins" was released and forever changed the landscape of superhero films as a genre in Hollywood (alongside the release of the very first Marvel Cinematic Universe film in "Iron Man" on May of the same year). The aptly titled movie called "The Dark Knight" became more than just another Batman movie and follow-up - it was considered "The Godfather" of superhero movies and dared to challenge the perception of the Caped Crusader and his world by grounding them into a very realistic tale where a man working outside the law as a vigilante is challenged by an agent of chaos.

Christian Bale of course returned as Batman - more experienced and savvy in his role as Gotham's protector following his victory against the League of Shadows. He partners with his steadfast cop friend Lt. James Gordon and new ally in District Attorney Harvey Dent in trying to eliminate crime and the mob from every corner of the city. Unfortunately it's the unpredictable arrival of a crazed criminal mastermind known as "The Joker" - played by the late Heath Ledger - that backs everyone in Gotham to a wall, pushing Batman to his very limits and challenging his fight against injustice by threatening everything he loves and has worked for.

Of course the impact of The Dark Knight in pop culture and movies cannot be overstated. It changed how films of its type are perceived and considered for the Academy Awards - with Ledger's Joker winning posthumously a "Best Supporting Actor" award that is well deserved. It is indeed the film that we needed and deserved, and it also helped popularize the use of IMAX cameras in filming - which is why it is being brought back (according to Variety) to celebrate a decade of the superhero film's mark in film history.

Happy Anniversary, The Dark Knight!
