New ‘Batman v Superman’ Photos Revealed

We now have some new images from Batman v Superman!

Empire Online released three never before seen images from the film as part of a special exclusive. Check them out below!

It seems that Lex Luther (Jesse Eisenberg) is ready to show off his skills on the b-ball court. He may want to change out of those super fashionable (and super hipster) clothes first, though. Also, what kind of indoor basketball court has Adirondack chairs?

We get another shot of mecha Batman (Ben Affleck) and his bat signal, which we previously saw in the Comic-Con trailer for Batman v Superman. Nothing new here.

Perhaps the most telling image is of Superman (Henry Cavill) standing in the ruins of a building.

Based on the architecture there’s a good possibility that this might in fact be the ruins of Wayne Manor. Can Superman be affected by asbestos, I wonder?

All will be revealed when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.

What do you think of the photos? Let us know in the comments below!

‘Once Upon a Time’s Newest Princess Aims True at San Diego Comic Con

I was at Comic Con San Diego for the great 2013 Once Upon a Time panel in Ballroom 20, and it was quite a time to be alive. Once Upon a Time: Wonderland was in the works and we were treated to a 10 minute cut. Good Morning Storybrooke premiered and has since become a Youtube guilty pleasure for many Oncers. And Ariel stole Grumpy’s dinglehopper and our hearts with her brief, but thrilling, sneak peak!

And as much as I squeed, furiously clapped, jumped up and down in my seat, and made grabby hands at the stage and screens, I probably would have passed out if they had played this for me:

On a side note, I love that OUAT’s music can be so magical yet so stressful at the same time. *chills* Not only does Amy Manson walk with the comfortable stride of of her animated counterpart…

http://38.media.tumblr.com/fd90fcc293dc4ca0d8fd2ec87ac98f83/tumblr_inline_mj8jth7toN1qz4rgp.gif
…but she also possesses all her sharpness of skill, too!

http://24.media.tumblr.com/bc193743802ce5ecbbca7e3cff66eb08/tumblr_n55p3xoF181tx3qdao4_400.gif
And even more importantly, our new Merida-in-the-flesh looks ready to take on the whole sorted forest!

Now here’s the thing about Merida: the movie was called Brave, not Free Spirit or Merida the Adventurer, but Brave.

Brave can be quiet. Brave can be small. Brave can be stalwart and steadfast. Brave can be graceful and clever. Brave is something anybody can be, but they have to choose to be it. And if you look at who the heroes are in OUAT, you see that those who earn the title “brave” chose to be bold, chose to put others ahead of themselves, chose to embrace who they really are and the strengths and sacrifices that go along with that acceptance. If there was ever a mascot for Season 5, Merida will be it!

There is speculation as to what other role she’ll play in the upcoming season.

With Emma becoming the Dark Swan and the Apprentice’s dying admonition to find Merlin, it’s quite possible that Merida may have her own hand to lend in the search for history and folklore’s greatest magician of all time. Or perhaps she runs afoul of the new Dark One when Emma makes her way to the Enchanted Forest, as teased in ABC’s other promo video here.

Some of Amy Mason’s more recent geeky roles include Alice Guppy from Torchwood (2008), Daisy from Being Human (2010), and Medea in Atlantis (2014). But devotees will remember her fondly as Jodie Hatfield from 2007’s Pumpkinhead 4: Blood Feud.

What do you think of our first look at Merida? Do you think Amy Mason is a good choice for our new princess? What do you think Merida’s role will be in Season 5?

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 Trailer is Here!

The Walking Dead season 6 trailer is here and it’s absolutely INSANE!

The Ricktatorship looks like its back in full force, but for how long? Based on the conversations occurring within the trailer, it seems certain that the Alexandrians are going to vote to kick Rick off the island very soon.

Morgan’s do-good philosophy is in deep conflict with Rick’s own philosophy of giving-no-shits, so season 6 will probably build up to an inevitable battle between the once amicable pair. Plus there’s going to be a ton of walkers fucking shit up.. but you already knew that, didn’t you?

What do you think is going to happen in season 6? Weigh in below!

SDCC Day 1 Recap!

Hunger Games cast bids their farewell to the franchise

The Hunger Games franchise is coming to an end with Mockingjay Pt. 2, and sadly so are the Comic-Con appearances.

The cast and producers were at the convention for their panel, eagerly answering questions from fans in the audience.

Producer Nina Jacobson has some choice words for their end of the franhise. “The end is emotional for all of us,” Jacobson said. “We want to deliver the emotion and the politics of it, all the things that [author] Suzanne [Collins] wanted to say. But we don’t want to say good bye to each other. We all wish there were seven or eight books, not just three. It’s a very emotional conclusion. It’s emotional for us, but it will be emotional for the fans.”

One fan asked Jennifer Lawrence what is similar about her and her famous character, Katniss Everdeen, to which she responded in a very candid fashion “Nothing about us is similar. She’s brave and I’m an actress.”

Check out a few clips from the panel below! More are available on the franchise’s official Instagram page.

Stand with the Mockingjay! #SDCC welcomes #JenniferLawrence! #MockingjaySDCC

William Shatner addresses Star Trek 3 rumors

Will William Shatner appear in Star Trek 3? The actor was recently asked this question by a fan at Comic-Con, but according to Shatner our guess is as good as his!

The Star Trek alum told the audience a story about how he was contacted by J.J. Abrams way back in 2008 in regards to secretly appearing in his 2009 adaptation. This news was leaked by a reporter at an airport, who Shatner swears he didn’t tell. The incident, according to Shatner, seemed have rubbed Abrams the wrong way.

We didn’t get a solid yes or no from Shatner, and considering how Abrams was apparently interested in having him appear (at least at one point in time), his appearance in Star Trek 3 is still a very real possibility!

Revamped Flash costume revealed

Warner Bros. TV brought an entire showcase of hero costumes to Comic-Con this year, but the Flash costume in particular seemed a little different. Season one’s Flash has a costume with a red and gold emblem on the chest, but the costume shown at Comic-Con sports a white and gold emblem. What does this mean, exactly? Well, the most obvious answer is that the Flash’s costume will get a minor face lift for season 2!

This photo comes thanks to Aaron Couch over at The Hollywood Reporter.

Batman v Superman cast will hit the con floor for a surprise autograph session

Well, I guess it’s not a surprise anymore! Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill will be part of the Warner Bros. panel Saturday at Hall H, but Deadline is reporting that they’ll also be heading over to the DC Entertainment booth to sign autographs while they’re in town.

But as to when they’ll show up, that’s not for sure. They could either show up Friday night or on July 11 after their Hall H appearance. Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) will possibly show up as well, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

Transformers animated series coming to Machinima

Hasbro has partnered with the online gamer and video platform Machinima to produce a new animated series based on its Transformers: Combiner Wars line, The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reports.

Combiner Wars has groups of Transformers interlock to form one giant robot, known as a Combiner. Among the new robots are Superion and Menasor. They held the fate of the Transformers’ home world, Cybertron, in their hands.

Teen Wolf renewed for season 6

MTV announced today at Comic-Con that Teen Wolf will be renewed for season 6. A mid season trailer was also released during the event today.

Frank Miller’s Dark Knight III to Feature Additional 16-Page Mini-Comics

We don’t know much about the plot of  The Dark Knight III: The Master Race (which will launch this fall) but we do know one thing to expect: more! DC Entertainment has confirmed that in addition to the core 32-page comic book, each issue of Frank Miller’s eight-issue series will include an additional 16-page mini-comic illustrated by a variety of guest artists.

Halle Berry confirms that she would be up for a Storm standalone movie

Wolverine got his own, so why not Storm? When the actress was asked if she would be down for a Storm movie away from the X-Men franchise, she responded by saying “absolutely.” This doesn’t mean one is in the works, but with the help of her fans it very well could be. She urged her fans to speak up and spread the word!

Geekgirl World will be reporting all the events from SDCC all this week. Make sure to check our front page to get the latest and greatest news!

Get a Virtual Reality Headset for Free at Comic-Con from Syfy… Sort Of.

Syfy will be giving away free virtual reality headsets during Comic-Con this week!

And before I get your hopes up too high, I should note that they will be of the Cardboard kind!

The network is bringing 13,000 DIY Cardboard virtual reality headsets to Comic-Con in San Diego this week to promote The Expanse –  a space drama that will premiere on Syfy in December, Variety reports.

This will mark the first time that a TV network has used Google’s Cardboard VR headset to promote an upcoming TV series. 

The Cardboard VR Headset was created by Google as a cheap and affordable way to get the virtual reality experience at home. It is made out of (you guessed it) cardboard and includes a viewer and a slot to place your smartphone in. When used with certified apps, your phone will act as a virtual reality machine.

It’s kind of like those old school red view finders mostly all of us had as a kid, but surprisingly not as complicated.

Attendees of the convention can pick up their Cardboard headset at the Expanse Café in the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown San Diego. Once assembled, you can then download Syfy’s “Expanse” app (which is available on iOS and Android). The app will allow you to explore one of the spaceships featured in the show.

The app also will be compatible with other Cardboard VR headsets (which really isn’t surprising considering it’s just, um, cardboard).

Will you be picking up a Cardboard VR headset at SDCC? let us know in the comments below!

Her Universe Returns to SDCC with New Styles, Events

Geek girl fashion company Her Universe announced today that it will be returning to San Diego Comic-Con International once again with their large variety of fangirl styles!

Her Universe will be debuting several new designs at the event and will offer its most popular clothing and accessories from Star Wars, Marvel, Star Trek, Studio Ghibli and Nerdist.

“We are excited to bring our Her Universe boutique back to San Diego Comic Con,” said Ashley Eckstein, founder of Her Universe. “Elevating our product like it’s never been before; we have an assortment of casual and dressy options to beautifully express your fandom and Flaunt Your World!”

The Star Wars Her Universe boutique will be located in the Lucasfilm Pavilion (#2913Q). A second Her Universe boutique will also be available (#1317), this time filled with fangirl fashions from Marvel, Star Trek, Studio Ghibli and more.

One of the most notable, and perhaps functional, items for sale will be the Ultimate Convention Hoodie, the perfect choice for anyone who is planning on bringing home plenty of goods from Comic-Con.

Her Universe describes the hoodie as follows:

Designed by Chris Hardwick, con-goers don’t have time for disorganized hoodies and backpacks, so Her Universe has streamlined them into the Ultimate Convention Hoodie. This new version of this popular Nerdist hoodie has additional features including plenty of pockets for all your swag and gear – front pockets, sleeve pockets, a pocket big enough for a water bottle, two pockets for poster tubes, and one for comic books! This is uni-sex fit and is available for men and women.

In addition to the boutiques, Her Universe will be producing the second annual “geek couture” Her Universe Fashion Show with partner Hot Topic.  The event offers two winners the opportunity to design a fashion collection with Her Universe for Hot Topic. It will be held July 9th, 6pm, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego.

Her Universe and Hot Topic will also be presenting a special screening of Spirited Away after the fashion show, hosted by Ashley Eckstein, on Thursday, July 9th at 9pm at the Horton Grand Theatre in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. Entry to the screening requires a ticket, with drawings for entry tickets at the Horton Grand Theatre being held on Thursday, July 9th at 9am in the Autograph Area of Comic-Con.

The ever so busy Ashley Eckstein will also be taking part in two panels during the convention on Friday, July 10th:

1:00pm – “The Business of Geek Fashion” in room 14A

3:00pm – BBC/”How Comic Books Took Over Hollywood” in room 25ABC

Whew… it seems like there’s A LOT of Her Universe to be had in San Diego during this year’s Comic-Con!
