Not at San Diego Comic Con? Getting bored waiting for updates about your favorite comics, movies, and television shows? Well, it is time to thank Marvel Comics who have released Deadpool: The Gauntlet Infinite Comic #1 & #2 online to read for free (that’s right, my favorite price: free).

Deadpool must deliver a package for the vampire, but what happens that left Deadpool a changed mutant?

Also for free to read online this week are the first two issues for Infinite Comics titles Iron Man: Fatal Frontier and Wolverine: Japan’s Most Wanted. Check out all six issues online here.

Hot off the heels of Iron Man and Scarlett Witch San Diego Comic Con teaser posters comes a teaser poster of Black Widow in her new costume. The poster also features glimpses of Thor’s hammer, Hulk’s fist, and Hawkeye’s arrows. I can’t wait to see what all of the images look like when put together!

Black Widow Avengers2

With the first day of the San Diego Comic Con here, expect a lot of movie, television, and comic book news. There is no doubt that Avengers: Age of Ultron will have a big presence at the Marvel Studios panel on Saturday July 26th at 5:30pm pst. Marvel’s television panel will be on Friday at 3pm pst and will feature Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter.

Joel McHale and Chevy Chase in Community

I am honestly shocked and a little lost for words- in a good way. With all of the possible companies that could have swooped in to save Community, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or even a traditional cable channel like USA or TNT, I never in a middle years thought that it would be Yahoo to save the day. That is right, the search engine and email website, the one that seems like it has been dying for the past decade showed up when all hope had been lost and will bring us one step closer to #SixSeasonsAndAMovie.

Not much is known about the deal. We do know that the cast and creator Dan Harmon will return for 13 new episodes that will air exclusively on Yahoo Screen in the fall. Screen is the new streaming offshoot of Yahoo that works similar to Hulu, with shows airing online with commercial breaks. Yahoo Screen had previously announced two new original programs, Other Space from Paul Feig and Sin City Saints from Bryan Gordon and Mike Tollin. Both of these shows will have 8 episode seasons, with all of the episodes being released on the same day (the same model that Netflix uses). It is unknown if they will do the same for the new season of Community.

Excited that Community is returning? What are you hoping for in the new season? With the show moving online, they can pretty much do anything they want.

We are very excited about our latest giveaway! A big thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment for providing My Hollywood Dream with a copy of The LEGO Movie on Blu-Ray to give to one of our awesome readers! First, lets take a look at the movie’s official description and then check out the “EVERYTHING IS AWESOME” GIF creator in The LEGO Movie App.

The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (Taken) voices the president’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.

Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Emmy nominee for 30 Rock), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, 30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC’s Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate, obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.

We are very happy to present two exclusive images from the superhero dramedy I Was A Teenage Superhero Sidekick from writer/director J Hanna. The movie focuses on Larry (Barrett Mitchell), the once heroic Kid Dynamic- sidekick for the mighty Dynamic Man, as he adjusts to live outside of the superhero business. From the official description we can tell that things are not going very well.

Kid Dynamic, sidekick to Dynamic Man, quits the whole superhero racket and struggles with the transition…with finding himself. His hippy-dippy headshrinker, who insists on outdoor yoga classes during psychoanalysis, helps him find the courage to go for the simpler life he yearns for. What he comes to understand is that life isn’t so simple, with or without the cape.

The first still image features Barrett Mitchell as the former Kid Dynamic as he deals with some of his “issues”.

This second still image gives us a look at other heroes that populate the world of I Was a Teenage Superhero Sidekick, with art by Vanessa SinYing Fung.

You can find more information on the movie over on it’s official Facebook page and can get even more details on the movie, it’s cast and crew over on IMDB. The movie stars Barrett Mitchell, Emily Sandifer, Milena Mortati, Andre Antwan, Rashawn E. Vaughn, Eryn Joslyn, and Bill Ferris as Dynamic Man, and was produced by J Hanna and Kathy McCurdy.

High Maintenance - Web Series

Sure, High Maintenance is not a big budget series, like House of Cards, or a revival of an awesome show that was canceled too soon, like Arrested Development, but I give Vimeo big props for jumping into the original content fray.  For those of you unfamiliar with Vimeo, it is a site just like YouTube where users can upload videos and make them available to the world (or keep them private). It is widely used by media professionals and filmmakers, who want to be able to showcase their work and reels, without the baggage that YouTube comes with.

High Maintenance was created in 2013 the husband and wife team of Ben Sinclair and Katja Blichfeld, and produced by Janky Clown Productions. The series has aired 13 episodes (which are still available to watch for free on Vimeo). The series focuses on a “nameless cannabis delivery guy delivers his much-needed medication to stressed-out New Yorkers.” Vimeo has given the greenlight to 6 new episodes that will be available exclusively on Vimeo On Demand. Unlike Netflix and Amazon, which offer a single price for all of their content, Vimeo On Demand will allow viewers to just pay for the particular episodes that they want to watch. Actual pricing has not been revealed yet, but it will be tricky to compete with the Netflix and Amazon models.

Have you watched High Maintenance? Excited to get a new season? Are you willing to pay to watch a web series?
