Those subscribers to the DC Universe streaming and reading service are going to love that a brand new live action series is coming hot off the heels of the intense “Titans” series that only recently completed its first season. I’m talking about The Doom Patrol who were always a bit of a quirky team of misfits since their inception and with their show launching on the service in the coming days we now have a quick trailer for it called “Meet The Doom Patrol”. Take a look.

The Premise: Set after the events of Titans, the Doom Patrol – consisting of Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, Crazy Jane and new recruit Cyborg led by Dr. Niles Caulder – receive a mission to stop the supernatural supervillain known as Mr. Nobody from taking over the world.

Early last month I shared the first two teaser trailers from the upcoming film “Lords Of Chaos”, which is based on the book of the same name by authors Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind – The intense historical read lined out the beginnings of the Black Metal scene in Norway and focuses on bands like Mayhem, Darkthrone and Burzum. If you didn’t see the teasers please click HERE since I’ve also added some promotional art in that post that I am NOT repeating here. The full trailer came online only a couple of weeks ago and was showcased HERE. The film opens today in select theaters so you’re going to want to check your local listings to see any potential viewings near you.

Marvel Studios: “Avengers: Endgame” & “Captain Marvel” Super Bowl LIII Spots

So another Super Bowl is on the books as completed and yes, the New England Patriots bested the Los Angeles Rams for Super Bowl LIII in a very low scoring (and super boring) game, winning 13-3. Truth be told I’m not a sports fan at all but I tuned in sporadically to see what trailers might manifest. Considering that we’ve already recently got updated trailers for “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home”, I was not expecting more than a tease of some kind with newer footage that we might not have seen somewhere else. Across the course of the game, we would get what were listed as “Big Game Spots” for both “Avengers: Endgame” and “Captain Marvel” and with the two clips barely surpassing a minute in length when played back to back, I’ve placed them both into a single post for your enjoyment. I’ve also added the premise for one and listed the cast in our tags as opposed to a rundown since there were too many people to type at this late hour.

The Premise: Nothing has been posted yet about what the premise for “Avengers: Endgame” actually is but its pretty safe to say that our heroes are going to be looking for ways to reverse “the snap” and give Thanos a taste of his own medicine.

Now that the Official Trailer has made sufficient rounds, its time to continue the support of what looks to be a very fun series. If you didn’t see that trailer, please click HERE to bring up that post on a new tab. I’d hate for you to not know what I am talking about after all. Now its time to share a bunch of the promotional posters for the series, and this is something I love to do because its almost the same as the variant cover reveals. Let’s stars with the Official Poster and then onto the ones with the assorted characters. I’ve also added the premise and the casting for good measure so everyone knows who is who. Let’s go.

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.

I’ll repeat myself here with the copy I used for the teaser since this is my share of the longer, more official trailer for the upcoming “The Umbrella Academy” series on Netflix. 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, it’s making its way to the small screen with a live action series on the Netflix streaming service. Let’s take a look at the official trailer that was just released. The series will stream in full on February 15th.
