Though the excitement about films is pretty much relegated to the Friday opening of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, it was cool to see the Official Teaser Trailer for the 2018 animated film “Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse” which comes care of Sony Pictures animation division. Check out yon teaser below and then I’ll add in some editorial thoughts.
The Premise: In the “classic Spider-Man mold”, Miles Morales must juggle his high school life with his status as a superhero, as he is introduced to the “Spider-Verse” where there can be more than just one Spider-Man.
Back in 2016, the world of Geekdom saw the return of Agents Mulder and Scully in “The X-Files” Season 10. There were only six episodes to the season and they left us with a bit of a cliffhanger. Now, the time has come to reveal the trailer for the 2018 returning show for its eleventh season. Check out the trailer that was unveiled at this years NY Comic Con. I’ll follow it with some light premise and cast before closing it up with editorial.
I’m keeping with all of the season premieres that are focused on the comic book properties and point out that “Riverdale” will be airing this evening on The CW Network with its second season premiere. Check out the dramatic poster along with some brief premise and casting.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that I never thought I would find this show interesting but it actually is. Knowing the sugar coated fashion of the old Archie Comics as I did, I never expected a gritty, dark and often mysterious show about these characters in a real life setting would work but it did. I gave it a shot by running the DVR on a few episodes and found myself tuning in each and every week. On the comics side, there are more gritty and serious Archie Comics on the stands. Some of them use a bit of an “Elseworlds” premise and have him fending off zombies and the like and believe it or not, the character was even killed off in his own title in one of these potential futures. Amazing. Oh yeah and he’s met both The Ramones and KISS which I got a kick out of. “Riverdale” was even a part of this years “Free Comic Book Day” and recapped the first episode of the series on the printed page. If you’ve found any interest in these characters I say give the show a run through as its rather unique. That’s all I have to say about it. If you’ve watched it and enjoyed it, let me know down in the comments section below.
