We tried this a couple of months back, and though I didn't think it proved popular enough to be a very regular feature, this being the weekend of D23 (The major Disney Expo) there are a few movie and TV related bits of comic book news that might be of interest.

First up, the opening titles for the Big Hero 6 cartoon have been released

I think I'm going to like this.

Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet

We've had our first glimpse of what the Infinity Gauntlet will look like in the movie


Some new characters for the bad guys were revealed too. In case people want to avoid spoilers, I'll link, but not post to the images. Here they are, if you want to see them

The Tick (2017) trailer is also out.

The Gifted

Something which seems to have slipped into the schedules almost unnoticed with the kerfuffle over "Inhumans", is the new Fox series, "The Gifted", which features several X-Men chartacters and is set in the X-Men universe.

The brief character trailers have been compiled here but the poster has requested no embedding, so if you want to see them, go to the link.

Slightly odd choice of established characters perhaps (Polaris, Thunderbird and Blink?) and new ones Eclipse, and the name Strucker is asking for trouble (A little too close to Von Strucker, unless it's going to turn out that the kids have an Auntie and Uncle who go by the name Fenris or something) but I like the idea of Sentinel Services (Which does sound like the way such a program would be intorduced rather than "Let's cut straight to the forty-foot tall murder-bots".

And so we're not totally based on US products, the final trailer from Luc Besson's "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" based on the French bande dessineé series "Valerian and Laureline" by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières.

Sign me up for a gauntlet when those come available in stores. If they don't then Disney clearly doesn't recognize an instant sell, which I find doubtful.

Also, you know, the character on the background there kinda spoils it, if you want to keep the villains unspoilered.

I may be mistaken, but i think this is the biggest amount of (named) villain characters in an MCU movie so far? as in, not just glorified minions but actual villain characters from the comics.

Hmm. Let's see. Thor had Laufey and Loki (not counting the Destroyer).

Iron Man 2 had Whiplash and Justin Hammer.

Yeah... not thinking of any of the top of my head with more than two, unless you *really* fall on one side or the other for Civil War.

Well ... Winter Soldier had Alexander Pierce, Crossbones, Batroc, Zola, and the WS himself, although they didn't all play major roles in the plot.
