Warner Bros Animation has recently released its extended TV spot trailer that shows never-before-seen footage that may shed light to the ‘real score’ between Batman and Joker. It may likewise offer an explanation for the reason behind the Joker’s longstanding personal grudge. Well, as they use to say, ‘hell hath no fury like a villain scorned’. Okay, okay, I know it’s a feeble attempt at humor, but let’s be honest, seeing Joker putting on a puppy face like that after receiving from Batman the most painful 4-word sentence that he has ever heard in his entire life (“There is no us”!) – simply priceless!
A couple of days ago, we shared with you one of the LEGO Star Wars ‘Easter eggs’ that was cleverly revealed during the release of the first official trailer of Disney and Marvel’s next big film, Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Marvel has just revealed its first official trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming and Disney was clever enough to throw in some Easter eggs that LEGO and Star Wars fans (like us) will surely not miss out.

In case you missed it, here’s the official trailer.
I usually don’t include a LEGO Ideas project in my need-to-write list unless it has earned that 10K thumbs up from LEGO fans, but this rendition of the Warner Bros. animated film The Iron Giant deserves a special mention. Though the film itself did not find a warm welcome from the general audience when it debuted on the big screen in 1999, it won several awards under the science fiction genre including the BAFTA Children’s Award and has become a beloved animated classic over time. Set in post-war US during the early 1950s, it tells of a story of a gigantic, mysterious alien who crash landed on Earth and befriends a young boy. The film currently got a theatrical and Blu-ray re-release, which included a new documentary about Brad Bird’s making of the film.
