Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Comic-Con Teaser Will Be Con-Exclusive

If you did not attend the San Diego Comic-Con this year but kept yourself updated through other people’s updates on social media, chances are you’ve managed to catch a clip or two of the Batman v. Superman teaser that was shown to the attendees, and chances are that clip is already gone now after being taken down by the copyright holders or the hosting provider. Turns out you’ll most likely never see that clip again.

Reason: Warner Bros. President of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Sue Kroll, has stated that the clip will never be officially released online, as it is meant only for fans dedicated enough to attend the Comic-Con:

New Preview Clip and Gallery from Marvel’s Iron Man & Captain America: Heroes United

The last Heroes United, which had Iron Man teaming up with Hulk ended well, but the two heroes had a little bit of friction along the way. Most would chalk it up to the Hulk being highly unstable, but we’re not that quick to absolve Stark of all the blame. He can be obtuse sometimes. And with the new installment of the Heroes United series of films, we might get to see if Stark is really completely free of faults, as there’s no way a conflict will be instigated by his next partner: Mr. Captain America himself, Steve Rogers.

In Marvel’s Iron Man & Captain America: Heroes United, Iron Man and Captain America will have to join forces in order to combat the compounded threat of the Red Skull, Taskmaster and an army of Hydra Brutes. The film will feature the voices of Adrian Pasdar and Roger Craig voicing Iron Man and Captain America, respectively. Clancy Brown will also be featured, lending his voice to the villainous Taskmaster.

You can check out a bunch of images, as well as a preview clip below:

Disney XD Orders Season Two of Avengers Assemble and Agents of S.M.A.S.H.

Avengers Assemble was originally greeted by fans with mild distrust, owing to the fact that the series it replaced – Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – was considered as the best animated take on Marvel’s premiere superteam so far. However, Avengers Assemble soon proved that it’s a worthwhile replacement, one that can be considered better by many fans. Disney XD further proves this as they have recently ordered season two of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, along with another season of the new gamma-and-humor-infused series Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.

Japanese Government to Strengthen Anti-Piracy Campaign

Japan has always been very strict with regard to protecting the copyrights of manga and anime properties, but so far their efforts to pursue pirates were limited to individuals or sites that are operating from within their country.

That’s all going to change soon as the Japanese government, with the help of 15 major anime production outfits and manga publishers, will start a huge online anti-piracy campaign that will result in over 580 foreign sites being sent a takedown notice for manga and anime content that are hosted without the copyright holders’ permission.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Features Legend of Zelda-Themed Gear

As if you didn’t have enough reasons to get Monster Hunter 4 once it comes out for the West, Capcom has just released a new footage showing off the characters wearing a very recognizable set of gear: Link’s signature green tunic, the Master Sword, and his bow (I don’t know what it’s officially called – Link’s Bow, perhaps?)

The Legend of Zelda was already introduced to Monster Hunter 4 in Japan last year, but it Capcom did not confirm its inclusion in the Western release at the time. This means this new video is less an introduction of the special Zelda-themed gear but more of a confirmation that yes, it’s making its way to the NA release of Monster Hunter 4.
