Wolverine's LOGAN Trailer Looks Unlike Any Superhero Movie We've Seen



  1. Nick Sepe says:

    I’ll watch anything with Kevin Pereira … Amazing!

  2. Kyle Cotton says:

    That Ant-man trailer was better than that pointless Star Wars teaser.
    At least we have a general idea about the film rather than, “Oh look Millineum Falcon, See you in half a year.”

  4. Danny G says:

    Nerdist needs more Kevin! 

  5. Justin says:

    I dunno. Maybe it’s the fanboy in me but … After seeing the NYCC footage of “Daredevil” I’m so crazy pumped for that show it’s insane. DiNofrio is going to be incredible. As for “Ant-Man”, my hopes are … there … not extremely high … but … there. Not a whole lot of people had any hope for “Guardians” either, and not only was it almost universally beloved, it was also the biggest money maker of 2014. Plus – I love the idea of Paul Rudd as a superhero. 

  6. Dgonz says:

    Need more Kevin on nerdist!!!!

  7. Joe says:

    Yeah the trailer gave me the impression that this may be the first of the Marvel phase movies that lands with a thud.  However, I’ll be happy to be proven wrong.

  8. Nick says:

    The Ant-Man trailer reminds me of the first teaser trailer for Green Lantern… ’nuff said.

  9. Nick says:

    Came for Kevin

    Let him host something…

  11. Patrick says:

    Im totally waiting to judge till the next one comes out … if i learned anything from watching quicksilver in the x-men trailer there may be more to this character

  12. Reuben says:

    OK .. So first of ALL .. Ant-Man is not a phase 2 ender -__- but a phase 3 beginner .. Get your facts straight dude.. your sources seem to be sources of BS.. and 2nd of ALL.. That trailer freakin ROCKED everyone s socks off!! check that too, after you completely diss my comment k ?

  13. Paul A. says:

  15. William says:

  16. mikedudez says:

    im looking forward to the uncensored anime with no more sunlight in front of my precious boobs and butts.

  17. Mark Warren says:

    I see your point about the trailer.  I was blinded about the fact that I’m finally seeing footage for the film to put that in context and compare it to the other trailers.  Also, it is so good to see you Kevin!  I’ve missed your smarmy face!  It’s like seeing an old friend…that I’ve never met…and have no clue that we were ever friends….yeah, so, uh, it’s good seeing you!

  18. Sam says:

    I need more KP in my life.  Thanks for doing this Kevin

    Hey, there doesn’t appear to be a video link to this Nerdist News on this page. (And if it’s fixed later and this comment is still here…well, then I’ll just look stupid in the future.)

  21. kerrell says:

    I could care less about Ant-man. But it’s always great to see Kevin,it’s almost like AOTS was never gone.
