THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Collider has a description of the teaser trailer rumored to be attached to prints of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2.” Since the whole thing is pretty much a spoiler, I’ll leave the description behind the link. I will mention this, though: Gordon possibly says “Humor me” to someone who might be Bruce Wayne.
Release date: July 20th, 2012
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER
Meanwhile, director Joe Johnston tells Comic Book Movie that he’d be interested in coming back for the sequel. “I would be interested if the story is as unique as ‘Captain America.’ That’s a tall order, but if Markus and McFeely are writing it there’s a very good chance it will be great,” he says. “There are other interesting characters in the Marvel universe, for instance, the Winter Soldier, aka Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes.”
Starring Chris Evans, release date: July 22nd, 2011

DVDS IN THE MAIL
So it seems I must make a choice. I started using Netflix because they offered something no one else does: “Doctor Who” DVD rental. With the new change in policy, should I keep my access to disks for the occasional classic “Who” release? Perhaps I should go streaming only. Decisions, decisions. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya, bracing for the future threat of the streaming video world.
