GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Although Marvel had no official announcements for its upcoming film slate at New York Comic Con this year (the publisher did show some exclusive footage during its Marvel Unlimited Plus members panel over the weekend), “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor Lee Pace spoke with Click Online about his character Ronan the Accuser and his experience bringing the character to life.
“He’s a fucking psycho!” Pace told Click Online. “He’s a real monster. I’ve had the best time playing this character. I’m glad it’s all on film and I never thought I could be so nuts in it!”
The production wrapped shooting over the weekend, so it’s likely some kind of official trailer will drop in the coming months.

Cudlitz followed-up the panel announcement via Twitter, with the first image of him as Eugene.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
Ain’t It Cool News has confirmed that “X-Men: Days of Future Past” was shot in 48fps (the same as Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” that came under a bit of critical fire) and will be released in the same high frame rate. Singer previously revealed that he shot Quicksilver’s scenes at 3600fps, and it’ll be interesting to see how that particular technique gels with the 48fps release.

World’s Finest has posted a report that Bruce Timm and Darwyn Cooke will reunite on a “Batman Beyond” animated short for DC Nation, set to debut in 2014 to time with the 75th anniversary of Batman. Cooke will lead both design and storyboarding — it’s a nice nod considering he animated the main titles for the original show.
The official “Star Wars” YouTube channel has released the original theatrical trailer for “A New Hope” from 1976.
HIDDLESTON AS WILSON AS LOKI
Tom Hiddleston did an impersonation of Owen Wilson playing Loki, and it was decently spot-on. Whether or not the impersonation was accurate, it’s certainly funny to watch.
