Nice!  I must admit to being a DC comics guy - but Marvel has been hitting them out of the park with their movies - here's hoping that DC can do the same - not because I like Batman / Superman and the rest more than Marvel's lineup (I do) but because I am a comic book movie junkie and the more the better (assuming they are actually good)...Looking forward to the Marvel Special - bring it on!!!

Marvel has every reason to showboat with a TV special like this; no DC movies in 2014 or 2015 while we get 6 Marvel based CBMs during that time frame. Marvel releases a trailer for GOTG and what do we get from DC/WB? A lackluster photo of the Suicide Squad from Arrow. All Marvel has to do is not suck because DC/WB is barely putting up a fight. That could change but right now I'm not buying the alien wrecking ball version of Superman, Batfleck and an anorexic looking Wonder Woman.

Why only 720p I wonder? I guess becuase you usually can't tell the difference between 720 and 1080 most of the time.

Wiseguy 2/28/2014 8:32:21 AM

I bet this'll be the big Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver reveal

I agree Wiseguy.

There is no doubt Whedon and company wants to release a first look at Quicksilver before we see that abomination in X-men DoFP.

Have you noticed every time Disney/Marvel releases a trailer/teaser, one or two days after, Fox/Singer release a picture/teaser of X-men DoFP?


ElBaz13 2/28/2014 12:04:14 PM

The only thing DC is #1 at right now is the number of years they have been publishing comics. Marvel will never beat that.

 @Elbaz along with a first look at QS and SW maybe a first look or at least some concept images of the Vision and or Ultron.
