Thor: The Dark World Trailer

As I mentioned before on here, Spider-Man was my favorite Marvel character and I would pick up other books randomly.  I never bought a Thor book, but I was aware of him by cross-overs and other guest appearances.  I wasn't expecting much from the first movie, but I liked the story and his introduction to those that may have not known about him.  While the movie wasn't the best from the Phase 1 series, it did establish his role in the universe and I think the Avengers movie made people go back and give his stand alone movie another viewing.

With Thor: The Dark World coming to theaters this fall (November 8, 2013) I think we will see a bigger world than was shown previously and maybe get a better story this time around.  What the trailer below and share your opinions with us.

Man of Steel Trailer

I am a fan of the original Superman movies.  I still remember the tagline of the first movie "You will believe a man can fly!"  I feel that the original movie started off kind of slow, but watching it today, I love the build up to him fulfilling his destiny.  All the movies were great except for part 4 and part 3 was a little annoying.  While many people panned Bryan Singer's take on the classic story, I enjoyed the movie, but felt it did have a few flaws.  Now we have Zach Snyder giving us a new version of Superman, and with Christopher Nolan producing this movie, I think this might be the Superman movie that will put our faith back into the man of steel.

Tears of a Clown

Today while going through names with my wife about what to name our mystery kid, (we are waiting for the delivery date to find out the sex) I started crying.  Now this wasn't a "I stubbed my toe and I think I broke it" cry, this was more of a "I am having a second kid and it's finally hitting me" cry.  Earlier this month I wrote about how I was freaking out about having another child, but tonight something hit me. Something that made me so happy and sad at the same time.
