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.

Big Hero 6 cartoon news is great! Not exactly the style I like but I hope the story will be interesting.

The Infinity Gauntlet looks... not very menacing but it's just a prop piece with no CGI so I guess it will do. There was some concept-art where it looked real real good so I hope they'd made it look less silly in the actual movie %)
Also, is that empowered Thane instead of Supergiant in this version of the Black Order?

I'm mildly interested in The Gifted, Lorna seems badass, but the story... well, it will be either very boring and predictable, or semi-boring and predictable, I'm afraid. Hope they prove me wrong!

That's just Thanos off his throne in the center, Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight on his right, Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian (Black Dwarf having gotten a clever rename because I guess that's not a name you can take seriously in a live-action context) on his left.

(No Supergiant makes sense. If you're gonna drop a member of the Order to keep the cast trim, it's better the one that doesn't really have any moments you can adapt in the MCU.

I wonder if the remit for the Order's original creation was just " give us things we can use in the movies " - we're apparently getting Strange vs. Ebony Maw, after all..)

Ah, I see now.
Black Dwarf should be honored to be renamed after entire Black Order :D
I don't expect for them to play any role of importance, but Maw vs. Strange would be nice! And maybe some tiny bits of reasoning as to why they follow Thanos.

I did search for 'spoiler' tag in the comments setting but there's none? Or is there?
(Though, I am a huge spoiler-hater myself but that's just, erm, okay, these characters will be in the movie, is it important? It's not about the plot... Eeeeh, sorry.)
