DCC2017: Cosplay photography spotlight from Denver Comic Con

DCC2017 Denver Comic Con Cosplay

Denver Comic Con 2017 Cosplay Kicked Ass

Denver Comic Con 2017 (#DCC2017) came and went last weekend, and with it hordes of fans fit and fashioned costumes from all corners of the pop culture spectrum. For a convention that’s overcome its growing pains, and hurdled last-minute celebrity guest cancellations year after year, DCC 2017 was a rousing success. It had been five years since I’d walked the halls of the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver for the annual event, and 2017 was the first time I was fortunate enough to attend as media, so memories of comic con were hazy going in at best. Camera in hand, heavy bag slung over my shoulder (which I ditched after Day 1), I hit the floor last Friday determined to shoot awesome cosplayers, establish my bearings for the long weekend ahead, and make the most of Denver Comic con as both media and maniac. I’m convinced that’s what every single one of you crazy cosplay enthusiasts and comic con attendees were (especially after watching the entry line shuffle through each day)–maniacs of the highest order! I put together a fun DCC 2017 time lapse video as proof.

Whether you attended this year’s Denver Comic Con and are looking for photos of yourself or weren’t able to attend and want to vicariously live the experience through kick ass cosplay photos, you’ll enjoy the cosplay photography spotlight gallery shot by Midroad Movie Review during the 2017 convention! Check it out after the jump.

BLACK PANTHER teaser trailer drops us into Wakanda with its new king

First Black Panther teaser is the trailer you’ve been waiting for

Black Panther was arguably one of the more intriguing and exciting characters in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, so fans of the growing franchise were salivating for a Black Panther solo movie as soon as they got their first glimpse. A brand new “teaser” trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie made waves around the web the other day, and it’s easy to understand why. With five-second teasers flooding the scene, Black Panther’s almost-two-minute trailer is more a first trailer than a teaser. Sink your claws in, get a good look at a few characters, and keep your eyes peeled for more Black Panther marketing material to come as the movie ramps up for an early release next year.

Watch the first Black Panther trailer, read a plot synopsis, and check out the movie’s first poster after the jump.

First THOR: RAGNAROK trailer sees Mjolnir broken, Asgard destroyed, and Thor in trouble

It’s Thor vs. Hulk in the first Thor: Ragnarok trailer

The first Thor: Ragnarok trailer debuts this morning to kick off our week with a strange, exciting, funny peek at the upcoming Marvel movie. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, myself included, have been curious to pull back the curtain on director Taika Waititi‘s Planet Hulk-inspired entry into the expanding franchise, and the first trailer proves to be worth the wait. Not only does it tip viewers off balance from the get-go, but it then proceeds to hit all the off notes in all the right ways. What’s going on here? Why’s it all feel so whacky and welcome? While the trailer is short and sweet, it hints at a movie that’s full of life and color, which is a staple of Waititi’s work (What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople). November can’t come soon enough.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING trailers remind us Peter Parker is still a kid

First Spider-Man: Homecoming trailers swing in and look promising

The first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel’s highly anticipated Spider-Man standalone film, finally swung in last night courtesy of Jimmy Kimell Live! The tone is less bombastic than previous Marvel ensembles, which is to be expected, but there’s a nice hint of coming of age and an unwritten Birdman joke in there somewhere. Personally, I’m not frothing at the mouth like some fans, but the movie looks like it could be the (third) rebirth of Spider-Man that finally sticks. Who knows what kind of witchcraft and deals with the devil went on behind closed doors for Marvel to finally get their hands on the property. Regardless of the behind-the-scenes canoodling, filmgoers are grateful.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 second full-length trailer shoots for humor

Baby Groot and Drax steal the show in new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is shaping up to be one of the most enjoyable Marvel movies to hit the big screen, which is saying a lot given the nature of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in general. A brand new full-length trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just dropped, and it does a great job of reminding us why we love the film’s two alien oddballs (Drax and Groot). Humor is the name of the game in this new trailer, with eye-popping action backgrounding some laugh-out-loud moments, and I personally can’t wait for this movie to hit theaters next May. It just looks like so much fun.

Can’t get enough Guardians of the Galaxy? Watch the brand new trailer for the film after the jump.
