Possible Spoilers for Game Of Thrones Season 5 and Star Wars : The Force Awakens.
Why am I making an Otis Redding reference? Well it’s because I haven’t posted much besides Rebirth and The stuff about that one movie that I don’t wanna talk about and that movie is exactly the reason for the title of this article. I’m tired of being upset and instead I’m willing to look to the future on things I’m excited/happy about.
So I decided to start this article with Game Of Thrones. Season 6 premieres on April 24th and I just cannot wait for it. Having read the five books that are out, this season is particularly exciting to me because the show is now passing the books and everything in the new season is going to be brand new for everyone. I’m ready for them to reveal that Jon isn’t a Stark…but a Targaryen and just finally affirm all of our fan theories. Here’s a clip of Liam Cunningham(Davos Seaworth) on Conan with a clip from the new season.
Next up is Rogue One : A Star Wars Story.
I Love this trailer. A big complaint of the Star Wars Universe is that everything revolves around the Skywalker Family. Which, yes, most it does but I still think it’s a stupid complaint because the Skywalkers are awesome. This film; however, has no skywalker in sight. All new characters except for Mon Mothma and maybe a few of the generals. Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker and Donnie Yen all look awesome and I can’t wait to see the beginning of the Death Star and the Beginning of the Rebellion.
Just to clarify : No, I don’t think Rey’s Mother is Jyn Erso(Jones’ Character) I just want to go ahead and clear that up.
Captain America : Civil War just looks better and better the more I see of it. Hearing that Spider-Man has about 30 minutes of Screen Time kind of worries me on one hand because I’m worried that he’ll overshadow everything but I’m also really excited to see him in it. I still think it’s going to be the best movie of the year.
Also I love the announcement that there will be a few Avengers in Spider-Man’s new movie. This shared universe is something I used to dream of, now it’s real.
The first clip is the new footage that was shown at the MTV Movies Awards. I know it’s not the best video but it was the best I could find on YouTube.
This new T.V. Spot doesn’t show any new footage but it uses the entire MCU as a lead-up to Civil War. If it doesn’t give you chills then I don’t know what’s wrong with you.
And my final little note but one that is incredibly important to me is “Comic Book Women” is a wonderful organization that is led by Mairghread Scott. They’re working to promote Women in every form of the Comic profession, whether it’s a Writer, Artist, Editor, Retailer or anything else. I think it is great that we have advanced so far through the years that we’re finally bringing women to the forefront of this industry just like women like Gail Simone and Ann Nocenti did when there were almost no other female writers in comics.
I, as Editor-in-chief fully support this organization especially because The Fandom Correspondents was originally the idea of my sister, Admin Raven.
Overall, there are many wonderful things happening out there for fans right and I only touched on a few. It’s an amazing time to be a Fandom Correspondent and I’m happy to be one.
