Thor Love And Thunder trailer

Marvel Gets Metal

Nicholas Dye (Staff Writer/Podcaster)

Just ahead of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Marvel dropped the first trailer for the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. We see Thor ditching his dad bod (almost assuredly with a shred-filled 80d training montage), swashbuckling and wooing ladies, and traversing the universe with his new friends, the Guardians of the Galaxy. We also get our first look at Jane Foster wielding the reforged Mjolnir as a confused Thor looks on. Anyway, enough of that! Here’s the trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder…

Guess Who?…Mephisto!!

Relax Oscar…it’s not really Mephisto

(Nicholas Dye Staff Writer/Podcaster)

Marvel Studios dropped the first trailer for the upcoming Moon Knight series starring Oscar Issac (Star Wars, Dune). We see Isaac’s character, Stephen, struggling with deciphering what’s dream and reality, insomnia, and, due to being chained to the bed, lycanthropy?? While I’m certain he won’t become a werewolf, he definitely will become the vigilante, Moon Knight. Traditionally, Moon Knight is the crime-fighting alter ego…well ONE of “Stephen’s” alter egos. Besides becoming Moon Knight, Stephen also struggles with dissociative identity disorder which is probably why the voice on the other end of the cell phone calls him Marc. Marc Spector is also one of his identities. The departure here is that we don’t know if Moon Knight is a supernatural character or his “transformation” is a byproduct of his mental health issues. Ethan Hawke’s character, Arthur Harrow, says to him “You have chaos in you!” This could refer to Moon Knight’s mental status OR perhaps could harken (or should I say Harkness) to Wandavision and the chaos magic Scarlett Witch possesses. Either way, I’m sure we will be in for a helluva ride when Moon Knight hits Disney+ on March 30th of this year. Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer below…

2021 Comic Con Revolution

Nicholas Dye (Staff Writer/Podcaster)

On December 19, I ventured down to Ontario, California for the 2021 Comic Con Revolution, held annually at the Ontario Convention Center. I was curious to see how they were going to approach Covid protocols and I was greatly impressed with their forward thinking and planning. For those who were vaccinated, a simple check of your vaccination card was required. For those unvaccinated, they required a negative test within 72 hours of attending. Here was the best part…they had a testing facility on site where you could have a rapid test administered for $40. For those of you who would balk at that price, our local hospital charges $100 for rapid tests so I was quite impressed.

Outside of the venue, you were greeted by some of the most iconic vehicles from film and television including KITT from Knight Rider and the DeLorean from Back to the Future. Inside the venue, the badge pick up was run with impeccable efficiency. I was able to pick up my press pass and my daughter’s daily pass in a matter of moments. A QR code was displayed that gave you the entire layout of the convention center as well as autograph alley and the seminar rooms.

Staff was on hand at frequent intervals to direct you and answer any questions you might have. The only comparison I can give this is to that of the Disneyland staff. No convention worker left me without an answer to a question and they seemed as genuinely excited to be back as we were to have them back.

Autograph alley offered several opportunities to meet voice actors from shows like Avatar The Last Airbender and Naruto as well as the original Flash Gordon, Sam J. Jones. Legendary writer Chris Claremont of Uncanny X-Men fame was there and had a massive crowd. The highlight for me was Timothy Zahn. Zahn is the author of The Heir to the Empire saga of Star Wars novels which introduced us the character of Grand Admiral Thrawn. Thrawn has been featured in the animated Rebels show and will be making a live action appearance in the upcoming Ashoka Tano series on Disney+.

We here at NOWHERE CALIFORNIA will be looking forward to attending next year as well and will leave you with these pictures from this year‘s Ontario Comic Con Revolution.

FINALLY A “No Way Home” Trailer..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

It has been said that you can’t go home again and for Peter Parker, the journey home has been rougher then the average person. In “Far From Home”, we left the web slinger watching his world and secret identity being exposed to the world. Now, two years and some corporate entities coming to terms, we have our first look at the next entry in the saga of everyone’s favorite neighborhood Spiderman.

The world has been patiently waiting for our first look at the post “Far From Home” world and it was worth the wait. We get a quick taste of how Peter’s life is upside down and what lengths he is willing to go to fix things, but the problem is the aftermath of this resolution and the effects he is not ready to put into action. In this confusion and deeper dive into the multiverse, we get a peek into the variant worlds of the web slinger and some ghost’s of franchises past are unleashed in this current Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This trailer is the tip of the titanic sized iceberg, we know the casting “rumors” and the road leading to this film’s release, so the “No Way Home” reveals should be unleashed faster and we will be ready.

Spider-Man: No Way Home Hits Theaters December 17,2021



Venom 2 trailer drops!

Talk about tongue tied…

Nicholas Dye (Staff Writer/Podcaster)

It’s finally here! The long awaited trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage has finally hit. I won’t over ramble so you can get to the sweet sweet symbiote action buuuut…there are three things I LOVED about this trailer. First, very little of Woody Harrelson’s Carnage (I hate over reveals!). Second, this is directed by Andy Serkis. If ANYONE knows how a movie with motion capture should flow it’s that guy!! Third, the line at the end of the trailer ONLY IN THEATERS. In our current world I think it’s a bold move and statement to make and I love it. Enough of my gas, check out the trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage, in theaters ONLY on September 24, 2021

Shang-Chi Teaser Trailer

Nicholas Dye (Staff Writer/Podcaster)

About a half an hour ago, we got our first teaser trailer for the upcoming Marvel film, Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) takes center stage and the Kung-Fu action is high. Although details are vague, we get a glimpse of Awkwafina as Katy and what appears to be the REAL Mandarin. Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings opens 9-3-2021 in theaters nationwide. Check out the trailer below.

Spiderman 3 Gets A Name!

Don’t tell Tom, he will squeal.

Nicholas Dye (Staff Writer/Podcaster)

Courtesy of Disney and the MCU, we finally have our title for the upcoming Spiderman 3 starring Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, and Zendaya. The quick video reveal pokes fun at Tom Holland’s notorious ability to spoil things and sees our aforementioned trio outside director Jon Watts’ office leaving in disappointment. The video closes on a close up of a dry erase board with several possible names and the final name, boldly displayed in the center. I would reveal the name but I ain’t no snitch like ol’ Tom Holland. Check out the video below.

Deadpool 3, swearing, and the MCU

So…naughty

Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer

A few hours ago, during an interview released by Collider, Marvel’s Kevin Feige confirmed that Deadpool 3 will be rated ‘R’ and will also launch the Merc with a Mouth into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“It will be rated R and we are working on a script right now, and Ryan’s overseeing a script right now…It will not be [filming] this year. Ryan is a very busy, very successful actor. We’ve got a number of things we’ve already announced that we now have to make, but it’s exciting for it to have begun. Again, a very different type of character in the MCU, and Ryan is a force of nature, which is just awesome to see him bring that character to life.”

Fans can only speculate exactly how Deadpool will be introduced but knowing Reynolds’ dedication to this character and Feige helming it all, it will be nothing short of awesome and hilarious.

A Look From Nowhere At Suicide Squad:Kill The Justice League

The world of pop culture is still feeling the after effects of the DC Fandome and our favorite villainous squad are jumping from the page to the screen to the next generation of video game consoles.

The Nowhere California team will be diving deep into the first images from “The Suicide Squad” movie, but we have to take a look at the next game from the creative minds behind the legendary Arkham City franchise, Rocksteady Studios.

The members of Task Force X have entered the battle damage city limits of Metropolis, they have one mission and one goal. The mission is to eliminate a target and their goal is to get time erased from their prison sentences, but there is one huge problem and that is the target. Harley Quinn (voiced by Tara Strong), Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, and King Shark (voiced by WWE superstar Samoa Joe) have to take down Superman. Will the goal outweigh the mission? Also, from the title of the game, we can only imagine that the team will have a lot more on their plates.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League will not hit stores until 2022, but this first look has given the world something to be excited for and is given me a reason to possibly upgrade my current video game system.

Another Rebirth For The Man Of Steel..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

The DC Animated Universe has set the bench mark with every release and they are ready for another beginning. As “Justice League Dark: Apokolips War” finishes the timeline that began with the 2013 “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox”, Warner Bros. and DC are ready to hit the reset button. It’s time to check out the Man of Steel’s origins… again.

“Superman: Man Of Tomorrow” brings a new slant to one of the great comic book orgin of all-time, but before we dive into the trailer, I feel the need to point out the #MeToo elephant in the room. This story might look a little familiar to the trained eye, as this film is rumored to be loosely based on the comic “Superman:American Alien” and that book was written by a scumbag that I will not waste my breath to name, but through a little research and multiple source checks, that name in question is not linked to this project.

Now, with that out of the way, we return to the positive at hand and take a look at this preview of Kal-El’s younger years. In this film, as the official synopsis puts it…

Daily Planet intern Clark Kent takes learning-on-the-job to new extremes when Lobo and Parasite set their sights on Metropolis.

As the trailer and synopsis shows, we are heading from the farm and Metropolis with Clark Kent (voiced by Darren Criss). He is young and he is learning some new powers, but things are different this time around as Lobo makes a grand entrance into the Superman theatrical mythos.

The Cosmic Bounty Hunter (voiced by The Walking Dead’s Beta, Ryan Hurst) is ready to put Superman to the test and he is not alone, as Parasite is added into the mix. Before you wonder if Superman will be standing alone, he will not and he will get an assist from the legendary Martian Man Hunter.

“Superman: Man of Tomorrow” was written by Tim Sheridan, who co-wrote “Reign of the Supermen”, and directed by Chris Palmer. This production has gathered some big names to bring this world to life and takes the viewers on a familiar journey. This story has been told a few times, but this trailer peaks some interest on the return trip.

Superman: Man of Tomorrow Will Be Released August 2020
