2014 will hopefully be another awesome year for geeks and for blogging. Here is a list of various things that I look forward to in coming year, however it will not feature the movies that are coming out next year because that is another post entirely. These picks are things that I am looking forward to like television, news on 2015 movies, video games, and other things in general that I am excited about. Also the list is in no particular order.
Star Wars: Episode VII News and Teaser Trailer
Without a doubt, any news regarding Star Wars: Episode VII is the thing that I most excited for in 2014. Eventually, Abrams and crew have to cast the movie at some point. The waiting for more details is getting absurd! At least we know that the movie will be released in December of 2015.
Sherlock Season 3
After almost two years of waiting and Sherlock season three is almost here! If you live in the UK, you have probably already seen the first episode, but we Americans still have to wait a little while longer. Even though I have tried to avoid as many spoilers as possible, I but I really hope that something that happened in season two is explained in detail in the first episode.
The New Doctor
Coulson's Secret on Agents of SHIELD
After an unexpected twist in the Agents of SHIELD mid-season finale, we might actually discover how Coulson survived his encounter with the "Asgardian Mussolini." Considering that Centipede wants him, it would seem likely that he is not an LMD (robot) as we have previous speculated. Maybe he was brought back partially with science and partially with magic.
The Walking Dead Returns
After becoming a fan of the Walking Dead television series last year, I am eagerly awaiting the second half of season four. Most likely, I will try and review each episode as it airs similarly to how I review Agents of SHIELD weekly. Hopefully there will be enough people interested to make the reviews worth writing.
Attack on Titan's English Dub
Before any sub fans go ballistic and start screaming that I should just watch the sub, I have a very good reasoning behind waiting. My brother is not a fan of anime at all. I have tried to get him to watch Sword Art Online, which he liked for a short time and then stopped watching, but Attack on Titan seems like the type of series that we will both enjoy, and he will only watch dubs. Other than that reason, Funimation almost always makes excellent dubs, and considering that Attack on Titan is the most popular modern anime right now, I doubt that they will deliver something low quality.
Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer
With Avengers: Age of Ultron being released in the summer of next year, one would think a trailer, or at least a teaser, will be released before the year's end. In all likelihood, a teaser could be attached in front of Guardians of the Galaxy. Aside from Star Wars: Episode VII, Age of Ultron is easily my most anticipated film of next year.
Halo 5 and the Xbox One
With the recent release of the next generation of consoles, Halo 5 was announced, which makes me excited to see what happens next in the series. Other than Mass Effect, the Halo series is my favorite video game franchise, and considering the ending of Halo 4, I have to know what happens next in the story. Additionally, I am hoping for a slight price cut of the absurdly overpriced Xbox One during the Holiday season later this year, which is when I will most likely buy the console.
Man of Steel/Batman vs. Superman Trailer
Since the announcement that Wonder Woman will make appearance in the Man of Steel sequel, aka "Half-a**ed Attempt at a Justice League Movie," my expectations for the movie, whatever it will be named, are uncertain. In the near future, I hope to have a full post discussing the future of the DC cinematic universe and how poorly Warner Brothers and DC are handling it at this point. Despite this, let's hope that the trailer will suppress our doubts when it is released later next year.
Mass Effect 4 News
Despite the infamous ending of Mass Effect 3, I still love the franchise and it is my all-time video game franchise. A few images of Mass Effect 4 have been released and they suggest a possible prequel, which would seem like the best idea considering what happened at the end of Mass Effect 3. According to sources, news on the game is likely to be released in the coming months.
