Music fans will know the name of Gerard Way as being a founding member of My Chemical Romance but many might not realize that he has also created an interesting comic book series called “The Umbrella Academy” and now like many other comic book properties is making its way to the small screen with a live action series on the Netflix streaming service. Let’s take a look at the teaser trailer that was only recently released.

The Premise: On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.

Warner Brothers Pictures: “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” Official Trailer 2

Generally speaking, the Christmas holidays always put me in a good spirit but this year I think that the amount of major studio films and trailers are amplifying that tenfold as not only did we recently get the clips for the upcoming Marvel Studios features “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame” and now we have the just unveiled second trailer for “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” which I have been looking forward to since the first, brief trailer that we got during the Comic Con International: San Diego (seen HERE if you are interested). Now, let’s see what the Big G has been up to since that time in July.

Premise: The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species – thought to be mere myths – rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance (thanks Wiki)

The CW Network has been giving us some great DC Comics superhero shows with “Arrow”, “The Flash”, “Supergirl” and “Legends Of Tomorrow”. They also gave us “Black Lightning” not too long ago but that show doesn’t happen in the same universe as the other four do. Now its time for the annual multi-show crossover event and this year The Legends are not taking part in it but we should be fine without them as they deliver “Elseworlds”. Check out the cool poster down below.

It was pretty exciting news to learn that the second trailer for the upcoming Marvel Studio film “Captain Marvel” was going to air this evening and well, outside of the need to determine when it would come to light during the football game……on that I say “Go Sports”, since I don’t follow any of that stuff at all. Now, without any further adieu, here is the latest trailer for Marvel’s “Captain Marvel”…..hold onto your hats!

The Premise: Set in the mid-1990s, Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers, a former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, as she turns into one of the galaxy’s mightiest heroes and joins Starforce, an elite Kree military team, before returning home with new questions about her past and identity when the Earth is caught in the center of an intergalactic conflict between two alien worlds.
