Cool Video: The new upcoming “Tomb Raider” RPG game looks pretty cool, can’t wait!!!

There’s a new Tomb Raider game coming out but the new game is a re-invention. It won’t be like the earlier games. The game series is re-booting, and they will be turned into Role Playing Games. They will also have free roam. At first, I was skeptical of the Tomb Raider re-invention but after seeing the gameplay footage here in this video, I think I’m pretty much sold and will get it. I’m a very big Tomb Raider fan. I love Lara Croft. The games are so much fun.

Yes, San Diego Comic Con is happening right now as I type this, so I will be posting a lot of SDCC stuff, like I do every year in my blogs. Enjoy, the gameplay footage taken at SDCC.

Report: “Man of Steel” footage will be shown by Zack Snyder at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, possible teaser trailer too???

Over the years at San Diego Comic Con, both Superman and Batman has never made appearances to do some marketing for the yearly film conventions. Well this year, Superman will finally be at SDCC, while Batman continues to not want anything to do with it. Look like Zack Snyder got the permission by Christopher Nolan and WB’s to do it. Yes, Snyder will be there to show footage from the film, “Man of Steel“. Will the teaser trailer be revealed as well?

At the Superman, “Man of Steel” panel at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo, they showed the Superman, Jor-El, and Faora costumes out on display. See the pics, here.

I’m not sure why Warner Bros. is still NOT letting us see what Michael Shannon looks like as General Zod, yet? Maybe they’re saving that for SDCC. Hope so. I’m dying to see what the new General Zod looks like.

I’m still praying that “Man of Steel” will be a really good movie. I know Zack Snyder is not everyone’s favorite director, and I know he’s controversial with his “slo mo” scenes, but I truly believe he has what it takes to make an amazing Superman movie. I’m hoping “Man of Steel” will be an action packed ride, it probably will be from the looks of things. I’ve seen some of the Behind the scenes photos that were leaked to the web.

Can’t wait to see a trailer. The trailer should be out later this summer. Hopefully it’ll be a good teaser, and not just the S symbol on the screen.

Report: Never before seen deleted scene of “Lost – Season 1” revealed at San Diego Comic Con!!!

San Diego Comic Con is happening this week, and at the “LOST” panel, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse crashed the panel in full on geek out style. They revealed a deleted scene from “LOST – Season 1”. The scene shows Dr. Jack Shephard and John Locke having a heated argument about the hatch while Jacob and the man in black looks on.

See the deleted footage, here.

I’m all done watching “LOST” on Netflix, by the way. Finished, Season 6, the last season, a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t get around to writing a review of it yet, but will soon. Fantastic show though. Wish it could have lasted a few more seasons.

Report: Did Judd Apatow write a sequel to “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”???

Pee Wee Herman, the man himself made an appearance at San Diego Comic Con this week. During his panel, he revealed some plot points of Judd Apatow’s script for the new upcoming Pee Wee movie. Pee Wee announced that the movie is similar to “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”. The new film will be a new adventure and it will be a road movie.

Does this mean his famous bike will return?

More on it, here.

Well, I’m glad the new film will be similar to “Big Adventure”. I think he just hinted that it could be a sequel to that movie. It’ll be great if Dottie, Francis, and Mickey came back played by the same actors. A “Big Adventure” reunion movie would be great!

I’m a huge fan of the Pee Wee character. I’m not ashamed of it. I don’t care how many people thinks it’s weird.

Thought: Why no Batman/Superman news announced @ SDCC???

Well, SDCC has sadly came to a close. The exciting and fun convention is now over. Do you want to know what’s even more sad? Christopher Nolan or the Warner Brothers team never came to reveal big Superman/Batman news. 😦 Just like everyone else, I too was looking forward to some big announcements on Superman/Batman. It never happened. Keep in mind, that the SDCC from the past never did anything on “Batman: Begins” and “The Dark Knight” as well, so go figure. So why don’t Christopher Nolan ever bring his Batman or Superman work to Comic Con to celebrate with fans?

Does it have to do with ego? Does it have to do with money? Maybe a little bit of both, ha! There are better reasons why Warner Bros. will not bring Superman/Batman to SDCC.

One of the reasons, Batman and Superman are both iconic and legendary characters. All the stuff that you see at SDCC, the movies being celebrated there are not as huge as Batman and Superman are. The reason for Batman and Superman not being there is because, the two characters would overshadow all the other stuff being celebrated. Another reason for no Batman and Superman is because, it’s too expecting and too exciting. WB’s don’t want to reveal Batman/Superman stuff there ’cause it would get the whole convention all excited. The SDCC is the wrong place for it because it’s too early. Everyone wants to know about the new Batman and Superman flicks. If things were revealed this early, then it would ruin the excitement. They feel it’s better to leave things unpredictable.

I mean, think about it. When the Dark Knight came out, Heath Ledger was revealed to play the Joker shortly after the SDCC around that time. That news shocked the whole world. Imagine if they announced Heath Ledger playing the Joker at SDCC that yaar. Can you see how it would screw things up? Warner Bros. wants to reveal news on both films when ever everyone is not expecting it. That’s how you make a surprise. Announcing it at SDCC it would ruin that surprise ’cause everyone would be expecting it.

These are some reasons why Warner Bros. is forcing us to wait longer for Batman and Superman news. I’m sure they already picked a villain for both films already, they are keeping quiet about them until the time is right. They want it to be huge. It’s a marketing plan. It’s all about marketing. It wouldn’t be good business if Batman and Superman took over the SDCC conventions.

Just be patience everyone, a villain for both Batman and Superman will be revealed when ever everyone is not expecting it. I’m sure we will know more about both films later this summer, hopefully in August.

BREAKING NEWS: Harrison Ford shows at San Diego Comic Con early today!!!!

Wow! Is this year’s San Diego Comic Con CRAZY or what??? First Angelina Jolie appears on Friday. Saturday, we get the guys from the Expendables and that includes Bruce Willis.

And who’s the next big legend to make his debut at SDCC? Yes, Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford, who is now a happily married man! Harrison is at SDCC to promote “Cowboys & Aliens” with Jon Favreau and Daniel Craig.

I wonder when Christopher Nolan will show up at SDCC??? He hasn’t shown up yet. If he did, it would have been all over the news. Maybe Chris Nolan will show up at SDCC on the last day to give Batman & Superman news? We all hope Chris would show up, maybe he will tomorrow. I’m positive he will, he would dissapoint fans if he decided not to show at all.
