GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 Trailer Recreated in LEGO

I've been surprised by the lack of constant teaser trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2. I feel like the typical Marvel movie has about three to four trailers in the time it took one trailer to hit the web! While we wait for that next bit of footage to salivate over, take a look at this wonderful recreation of the trailer using LEGO! Hats off to Huxley Berg Studios for an amazing job, and thanks to Slashfilm for the heads up! 

Here’s a New Promo for That Gritty ARCHIE Reboot RIVERDALE

Archie is running in his underwear, checked out by Veronica, and slammed into a vending machine by Reggie in the latest promo for the upcoming series Riverdale. Yes, this is a gritty reboot of the beloved Archie comics you've undoubtedly read at some point in your life. Greg Berlanti is producing this one (as is the CW way), and things look just as dramatic as every other show currently on the station's primetime lineup.

We'll all find out whether or not this show turns out to be legitimate or some hilariously bad joke come January 26th. 

Guy Proposes Mid Mannequin Challenge, Blue Ranger Remains Dedicated to Staying Still

A man is getting married, and the Blue Ranger from Power Rangers stands tall in this hilarious Mannequin Challenge circulating the web! I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more of these in the coming weeks as the trend reaches its climax, but this is the first really geeky one I've seen! Mind you, there's nothing incredibly geeky, save this guy cosplaying the Blue Ranger who's immensely dedicated to the challenge!

As you'll notice, by about the 40-second mark literally everyone has broken the challenge while the guy is having a hell of a time getting the ring out of his pocket...save the Blue Ranger center frame. Futures are being made, and this guy is only concerned with how long he can keep his arms at an awkward angle.

He breaks after she says yes, but imagine what would've happened if she had said no! Would he still be there today posing? We can only imagine. See the amazing posture and a proposal below. 

New POWER RANGERS Photo Gives Us a Full Body Shot of Rita Repulsa

new-power-rangers-photo-shows-off-rite-repulsa

We've got a new photo from the upcoming Power Rangers movie to share with you giving us our best look yet at Elizabeth Banks as the film’s villain, Rita Repulsa. This is a full body shot of the character with her magical staff that gives her the power to enlarge other beings. 

Out of everything that I've seen from the film so far, I like her costume the best. Maybe they'll do a Marvel crossover in which Loki and Rita team up. It looks like they'd make a great team. 

I'm curious to see how this movie turns out, but I'm not really that excited for it. Did you happen to see those ridiculous Zord and Megazord designs? If not, check them out here.

The Power Rangers cast includes Dacre Montgomery as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G as Trini the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin as Zack the Black Ranger, Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, Bryan Cranston as Zordon, and Bill Hader as the voice of Alpha 5.

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

The movie is being directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac), and it comes out on March 24, 2017.

Creepy Rear Window Stickers Will Freak Out Aggressive High Beam Users

When it comes to driving speed, I'm in the middle of that pack. I'm often passing people from the left lane, and I move to the right when I'm not passing someone. But on rare occasion someone will hit me with their high beams because I'm not going 20mph over the speed limit like they are and not changing lanes fast enough. I'm sure we've all had the annoyance of these speed demons. Instead of the highly dangerous "brake check" or just letting your foot off the gas, you could do something far more creepy, like these reflective ghost faced decals.

First warning, I haven't not been able to find another source for these stickers other than a Chinese website. That said, they cost around $3-$18 (plus shipping). I would love to see the look on someone's face reacting to these ghost faces looking back at them. The decals are somewhat visible in daylight so you might also creep people out in parking lots too.

Original Anime Writer for POKEMON Wanted the Series to End With It All Being Ash’s Imagination

If Takeshi Shudo had his way, the Pokemon anime would've ended with Ash as a delusional old man! Comicbook reports that Shudo, who wrote the first three seasons of the series and three movies, planned to have Ash reflecting on his childhood as an old man and wondering whether Pokemon really exist or not. The series would then close out with Ash wandering into the woods searching for Pokemon, presumably to die. 

WHAT THE HELL, SHUDO?! 

I suppose I shouldn't speak ill of the dead, as Shudo passed away last year, but that's quite a bonkers and ridiculously dark direction for a series that has been pretty happy all the way through. It would also directly conflict with every Pokemon game in existence or perhaps be an incredibly symbolic statement on mental illness...I can't decide which. 

Obviously, Nintendo had other plans as Shudo was taken away from the series not too long after pitching a "Pokemon Revolution" movie that would reach its climax in Ash and Pikachu having a showdown to decide the fate of Pokemon and human kind.

Good to know the series won't be straying from its lighthearted nature anytime soon!  

Is This the Big Easter Egg Waiting to Be Discovered in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY?

I recently received an email from a GT reader named Matt, pointing out what he thinks is a big undiscovered Easter egg in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Could this be the big Easter egg teased by Gunn? I have no idea, but it looks like that Matt could be on to something. The email came along with the following image:

is-this-the-big-easter-egg-waiting-to-be-discovered-in-guardians-of-the-galaxy

The image features a screenshot of the hologram body scan of Peter Quill/Star-Lord from the film next to an image of the Marvel character known as Legacy, a.k.a. Genis-Vell, a.k.a. Captain Marvel. As you can see there’s a fascinating resemblance between the two images. I know that this doesn’t really follow the storyline laid out in the comic books, but Marvel Studios and Gunn could be switching some things up for the future storyline for Star-Lord, which could be really interesting. 

Will Peter Quill find himself in possession of the extraterrestrial golden bracelets known as the Nega-Bands? Will he eventually slam his wrists together with them, causing his atoms to trade places with an alien Kree type character? In the comic books, Rick Jones is the character that gets the Nega-Bands and slams his wrists together with them. This causes his atoms to trade places with those of Kree Captain Mar-Vel. Will Marvel change up this storyline to fit in with Peter Quill in the MCU?

This could be nothing, but who knows, maybe this could actually be something! If it is, will Gunn even confirm it? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. What do you all think?! Is this a stretch of the imagination or do you think Matt is on to something here?
