With Guillermo del Toro at this weekends WonderCon convention in Anaheim, California…most fans are anxious to see more of his upcoming monster vs robots tentpole. Below is a taste of what’s been revealed. Starting with the cover art for the upcoming Pacific Rim Prequel comic.
Not something we can show, but also revealed during WonderCon was a brand new action packed trailer for Pacific Rim that includes more of the monster on robot action. A couple of the fresh scenes shown off include Kaiju (monster) getting crushed under foot by a Jaeger (robot) and another particularly crowd pleasing which involved one of the giant robots using a hauling ship as a stick to bash in one of the monsters. Needless to say, the fans were impressed.
Also announced (non-Pacific Rim related) was that John Constantine (Hellblazer) will be the main character in the planned DC Comics Dark Universe live action film. The film is a Justice League of sorts, but using the monsters of that world, characters such as the aforementioned John Constantine and other like The Demon Etrigan and Deadman. He also promises that the character will be blonde this time. No word on whether he’ll be british, as well.
