Comic-Con is going on this weekend! For the attendees, that means four and a half days of nerding out over a million different works of art in a million different mediums – from Epic Meal Time and Dexter to World of Warcraft and Nickelodeon. Oh, and some comics.
The rest of us… Well, we get to envy the attendees while soaking in the ridiculous amounts of news about our favourite books, movies, comics, shows, YouTube stars, video games and just about everything nerdy under the yellow sun.
Oh, we also get to admire the costumes from afar – the 137 storm troopers, 88 Ramona Flowers, 19 Flashes and the one half-naked Ivy.
But for those of us who can’t go due to lack of money, lack of available vacation time or lack of a desire to deal with a giant crowd of dudes who haven’t showered in a week, a sweet trailer has been released for The Amazing Spider-Man.
And for those of us who like to see clips of a couple movies we’ve already seen combined with a picture we’ve already seen, a largely pointless trailer has been released for The Dark Knight Rises. [Sorry, couldn’t find any trailers that allowed embedding]
And for those of us whose attention span lasts more than two minutes (sorry, ADD-afflicted Appalachians!), Captain America: The First Avenger comes out this weekend. So far, it has received generally favourable reviews.
Or, since most people know what happens, here‘s some trailers and stuff.
