Star Wars: Dark Disciple Review

Aside from the six main feature films from George Lucas, the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars was the only material to make the cut when Disney and Lucasfilm decided to officially decree what was considered canon, and confirmed that the Expanded Universe was not included. As a big fan of that show, it was a huge relief to know that those episodes and the many great stories they told were all locked in as part of Star Wars mythology and could reverberate in the future. Still, it was clear the focus moving forward would no longer be on The Clone Wars era, as the show itself was cancelled prematurely. While Episode VII will obviously take place many years after the original trilogy, much of the new canon material we’ve gotten in the lead-up is taking place in the era between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. (whoops, sorry, A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, minus Rebels and the Kanan comic).

Samsung bracing itself for another profit drop after miscalculated Galaxy S6/Edge demand

Galaxy s6 edge

Samsung just can’t catch a break.

Although Korean investors thought the flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones would turn Samsung’s fortunes around, the financial freefall continued when the South Korean conglomerate said Tuesday it expected to report a decline in revenue and profits when its second-quarter results go public later this month.

As the Wall Street Journal noted today, the unfortunate development marks Samsung’s seventh straight quarterly profit decline. A source attributed worse than expected results to seemingly lackluster sales of Samsung’s latest flagship handsets and a gross miscalculation in demand for the Galaxy S6 versus the Galaxy S6 Edge….

After years of waiting it looks like our torment could finally be drawing to a close – sources are reporting the Warcraft movie trailer will officially debut at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the panel on Saturday July 11 will see the movie get its “big public unveiling”, which many are taking to mean we’ll finally be able to see director Duncan Jones vision in all its glory.

Thus far, only a select few have been lucky enough to get a glimpse of the Warcraft movie. Back in July 2013 at SDCC’s Legendary Pictures panel, a brief sizzle reel was shown to those in the hall. It’s never been released to the wider world, however.

Brainiac Will Harrass Superman in Future Movie

One of Superman’s archvillains, Brainiac, is slated for a future Superman movie.

Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder admitted as much in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“I remember talking about, ‘What’s the next villain?'” said Snyder. “‘We can’t do another alien invasion.’ Brainiac was definitely down the road.”

Snyder also mentioned that another Superman villain was considered for Batman v Superman.

“Metallo, I think, was going to be the main bad guy of this

movie.”

ComicBookMovie.com reports that the decision to drop Metallo (AKA John Corben) was made after the Dark Knight was added to the Man of Steel sequel.
