Tony and Peter #spidermanhomecoming:

Hi again Geeklings!

Hot on the heels of this past weekend’s big trailer release for DC, Marvel/Sony has decided it won’t be outdone and posted a new trailer for this summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is Spidey’s first solo movie under the Marvel Cinematic Universe banner (coming after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and before Thor: Ragnarok this year).  Check it out!

EEEEEEP!

We first saw this version of Peter Parker in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, and it looks like Peter’s got the being-a-hero bug (is that a thing?  I think that’s a thing.)  But he’ll have his work cut out for him with villain The Vulture, family/school life and a trying-to-be-protective Tony Stark.  Nothing your average teen with spider powers can’t handle, right?  Right?

And speaking of comic books being turned into films, here’s one you may not have heard of.  Just today we got a trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.  This is based on a French Graphic Novel series called Valerion and Laureline (see their French site here).  These two teens are Spatio-Temporal Service agents, and they protect the worlds of the Terran Empire against rogue time travelers and other threats.  Why only Valerian got top billing in this film adaptation I don’t know, but the movie does look pretty cool.  Take a look.

Right?  It’s super pretty.  I’d give it a shot, but what do you guys think?  Any interest at all?  And how stoked (or not) are you for Spider-Man?  Post away.

And, just for fun, one last thing; fan-favorite animated show Gravity Falls had a bit of a reunion this week.  Kristen Schaal, who voices Mabel Pines (and also Louise on Bob’s Burgers), and Jason Ritter, who voices Dipper Pines, came together for an ‘infomercial’ to promote the show’s new book.  And, as any fan would expect, there are plenty of sweaters and conspiracy theories to go around.

You can put a hold on Journal 3 here, sans sweaters or lock boxes.

Thanks guys.  Stay tuned and until next time, End of Line.
