Blizzard fans get ready to geek out. Warcraft, the movie based on the World of Warcraft video games, will be shown off for the first time at Comic-Con San Diego, Legendary has announced.
A July 11 panel hosted by Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick will feature footage and present cast members from Warcraft, Crimson Peak and Krampus.
Warcraft from director Duncan Jones is set to launch June 10, 2016 and stars Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell and Rob Kazinsky.
Crimson Peak is a gothic horror from Guillermo del Toro, whilst Krampus is a horror comedy from Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty.
In addition fans should look out for a host of show floor activities, including photo opportunities with Warcraft props.
A new image of Dominic in Preacher was uploaded online so I’ve added it to the gallery. I’ve also found an image for Miss You Already.
Finally! The terrific Agent Carter starring Hayley Atwell has been snapped up by FOX in the UK and starts in July…
Hayley Atwell recently intimated on Twitter that a deal to bring Agent Carter to the UK was on the horizon, and here it is: FOX has acquired the rights to air the Marvel show on these shores.
The first eight-episode season of Agent Carter, which went down a storm in the US after airing in Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s mid-season gap earlier this year, comes to FOX in the UK in July.
The news comes after months of UK Marvel fans waiting for legitimate means to see the 1940s-set spy thriller. Despite being the home of its sister show, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Channel 4 told Den Of Geek last year that it had no plans to pick up the period off-shoot. Would Channel 5 step in, as it did for Gotham? Or Amazon Prime Instant Video, as it did for Constantine? Or even Netflix, home to Daredevil and the forthcoming Defenders series? Not so. FOX has beaten them all to it.

Ambitious British actor Dominic Cooper loves the growing number of meaty TV roles on offer, including his own Marvel Comics character
When TV SOAP accidentally called Marvel’s Agent Carter, the relatively new US ABC action series, ‘Agent Cooped’ by mistake during our interview, London-born actor Dominic Cooper responds quickly, “l love that you think it’s ‘Agent Cooper’. That’s very good. It should be called Agent Cooper.”
Such is the sharp humour of the actor who — flying to Los Angeles and suffering from jetlag while promoting the show — can still keep TV SOAP on its toes.
Cooper is rapidly collecting an impressive list of interesting film and TV characters to add to his filmography, playing the spicy role of one of Peter Saarsgard and Cary Mulligan’s dubious friends in the Oscar-nominated An Education; Marilyn Monroe’s famed photographer Milton Greene in My Weekend with Marilyn; a jaded rock star in the Australian film Tamara Drewe, and the very famous Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, in last year’s BBC miniseries, Fleming.
