Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has the difficult task of succeeding the much appreciated Black Panther, but also of continuing this Wakandesque epic without the main actor Chadwick Boseman, who unfortunately died in 2020 of colon cancer. The new trailer unveiled at Comic-Con takes the time to pay tribute to the late T’Challa in the first part, before moving on to more action sequences. Finally we see a Black Panther, sporting new armor, claws out. However, we still don’t know who is taking over. The trailer also took the opportunity to tease us with the new IronHeart series, introducing the main character of the series: Riri Williams, played by Dominique Thorne.

Games Unveiled in Montreal at the San Diego Comic-Con, a trailer shows Barbara Gordon more heroic than ever.

According to Warner Bros. The Montreal Games, the character overcame her paralysis through physical training, an element that sparked controversy around Batgirl.

House of the Dragon
A month before the release of the first episode of HBO Max, MyCanal and OCS, the spin-off of Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon, took the opportunity to show us an extended version of the first trailer. It reveals more about the main plot, which takes place 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and describes the decline of the Targaryen family, after centuries of dominance by the 7 Crowns. This is the adaptation of George RR Martin’s book “Fire and Blood”. This title is also the motto of the dragon family, and it seems to show well on the stage, because every scene in the trailer has fire, whether it’s candles or on the battlefield. All that’s missing is blood, which is definitely in the game, given the source material. See you next August 21 to discover the first episode.
