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.

Speaking of superhero cartoons, does anybody know if the Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon is any good?

It's better than the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, although that's not saying much. Overall I'd give it a 6/10

Damn...

I found the portrayal of (MCU!)Yondu extremely disappointing in the comics. The annual in particular was so damn bad. So, I had been hoping I could turn to the cartoon to get my Yondu fix :/

I'm always surprised at how little notice those Marvel cartoons get. The only reason I'm even aware they exist is that I check weekly Marvel comic previews and see their comic book adaptations there. The DC stuff, in comparison, seems to always be making news.

Same. I couldn't find anything about the GotG cartoon even on Tumblr, which normally is all over GotG like cats on catnip.

I would assume it's a matter of quality, DC shows are generally good so maybe Marvel shows get ignored because they are bad. But apparently the Avengers cartoon was good and it still got mostly ignored, so I just don't know.

Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes was good, great even. Avengers Assemble decidedly is not.
