Pretty damn cool.

Eek...I just lost faith a bit.

Looks like yet another example of the source material outshining the adaption by about 1,000%.

I'll still give it a chance, but that was fairly disappointing.

I expected a glorified violent action movie though, so in a sense it just looks like a cool action movie, this will probably be like The Punisher just with kids doing it instead, hopefully it has a better plot than the Punisher though :-P

What did you expect from this, though?

It looks awesome.

Maybe this will atone for Wanted sucking so much fucking ass. :P

So the movie is nearly done before the first arc has even finished? Its not a bad comic at all but it's slow as fuck coming out.

^dayuum, that's violent as hell. This looks like it'll be good though.

I had zero interest in this when I read all of the upcoming news about it on Coming Soon.net, however this trailer looked pretty fun. I mean yeah it's violence for violence sake, but it seems pretty damn funny. I had no idea what this was all about, before when I heard people discussing it I was really expecting something like Superbad with superheroes...which would have blown pretty hard

When I finally got the months-and-months delayed 7th issue of the series recently I noticed a print ad for the movie adaptation comic and saw that it was illustrated by John Romita, jr.

Since he illustrates the regular series too I figured that was the principal cause of the even-longer-than-usual delay between issues.

Not so!

Well, no entirely, at least.

Apparently he's been held up from working on his pencils because he's been intimately involved with producing the animated sequences in the movie!!!


Just thought I'd share.

Oh, and if anyone can track down a working (and hopefully better) video of the trailer I'd LOVE to show j_absi. He's not a big enough fan of anything but cosmetics to actually spend his own money but he's always thrilled whenever I bring the latest issue over for him to read so I'm sure he'd love to see the trailer.

Issue fucking 7 was THE BOMB, btw.

Non-stop fan-service awesomeness front-to-back in a series that already delivers that every single time anyway.

It just gets more and more KICK-ASS!!!
