Highlighting The Best of This Week's Geek Culture News.
1. Captain America:The Winter Soldier Trailer Debuts- Chris Evans returns as "The First Avenger" with some pretty awesome new duds, (compliments of S.H.I.E.L.D) in the "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" sequel. Three things that matter here: The Falcon, The Winter Soldier and Cap'n A serving good o'l fashion ass kickings. Can't wait! Check out the trailer below.
2.Madame LaLaurie's Reaction to Modern TV & Obama- Kathy Bates takes home of the prize for this week's episode of AHS Coven. As we all know, this show can be disturbing and jarring, so leave it to Madame LaLaurie (a New Orleans socialite and serial killer known to torture slaves, reanimated by Jessica Lange's, Fiona Goode) to be the comedic relief. I still can't stop giggling. "That magic box lies. Somebody in there--they just said that, that a negro is the President of the United States." Priceless.
3.Teaser for X-Men Days of Future Past Trailer Debuts- As I said on my FB and Twitter feeds, Marvel is truly spoiling us fan boys and gals today. The teaser made its debut on Instagram limiting it to a 6 second preview. And I must say, those 6 seconds were the highlight of my day. The official trailer debuts online Tuesday, October 28th. #Mybodyisready Check out the teaser here.
4. Batman:Arkham Origins Hits Stores This Week- The heavily anticipated prequel to Batman: Arkham City features a younger, less refined Bruce in the lineup. While it's predecessor is considered a gamer's classic, the new Bat-game has some awesome new perks like a multi-player mode, and yet another great ensemble cast featuring the likes of Deathstroke, Killer Croc and Black Mask! Batman: Arkham Origins hits stores october 25th.
5.Benedict Cumberbatch Shows Us What Dragons Are Made Of- The release of Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will surely be upon us at any moment. Thanks to Flickr user Tolkiennerd, anxious fans got an inside look at stills of Benedict Cumberbatch in the middle of a motion-captured performance as the fire-breathing dragon, Smaug. Aside from the obvious hilarity of these pics, they can described in O\one word. Intense. Looks like Sherlock (aka Cumby) is gonna bring it. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December, 13th.
