Nickelodeon shared a small clip from The Legend of Korra season 2 at a recent press event promoting their upcoming animated projects.

At a press event held yesterday, the kids television network Nickelodeon shared news for The Legend of Korra season 2 and several other current and upcoming animated shows. Along with information for Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles and programs in production, the network revealed a short clip from The Legend of Korra season 2.

Nickelodeon did not reveal the air date for the hotly anticipated Legend of Korra season 2 at the event, announcing only that the show would return “later this year.” The freshly debuted scene is the first animation released for The Legend of Korra season 2 since San Diego Comic Con. Unfortunately, the clip is not made available for distribution to the general public.

However, IGN’s representative at the event did share a summary of the sequence shared with the press. The scene involved a battle between Korra and a spirit, “initially just seen as dark tentacles, surrounded by a purple energy.” The creature rises from the ground and attacks Korra and Tenzin as Korra asks the spirit, “Why are you so angry? What have we done to offend you?”

Then, IGN reports, the spirit “begins moving down the hill, utlimately crashing through a fence into a carnival being held.” Korra attacks the octopus-like creature “begins to get the upper hand, but she is suddenly grabbed by one of its tentacles, and smashed down into the ground.”

According to Nickelodeon’s Rich Magallanes, the scene is indicative of the a major plot point of The Legend of Korra season 2: the boundaries of Spirit World are weakening, leading spirits to leave their realm and seep into the human world. (This is not unexpected, as the season will be titled “Book 2: Spirits.”) Along the same lines, an animatic shown at last year’s Comic Con also features Korra involved in a scrap with another creepy spirit. There is no way of knowing whether or not the two fights are directly connected, but you can check out our glimpse at that intense fight scene at 3:33 in the video below:

Nickelodeon noted that the scene previewed for the press was still incomplete, though IGN’s reporter noted how impressive the sequence was. It is heartening to know that, though the wait may be (very) long, it looks like the finished product of The Legend of Korra season 2 will be worth all of our anticipation.

WB debuted a new trailer for Wonder Woman on Saturday morning at San Diego Comic-Con.

Gal Gadot and the cast of Wonder Woman introduced the new trailer, which offers a massive new look at the first female-led super hero movie (during this new wave of super hero madness, anyway). Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor and Gadot’s Diana Prince seem to have some great chemistry. And unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman gets up to a lot of ass-kicking in the three minute preview. Perhaps one of the coolest moments is when she fends off a lot of fire power, and one of the funniest moments comes at the end, when Diana equates Steve’s secretary to a slave. Watch below:

The movie is directed by Patty Jenkins, who has clearly done an amazing job bringing Wonder Woman to life with Gadot.

A new poster for Wonder Woman was also released, finally revealing her (colorful!) costume:

Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017. The film’s synopsis reads:

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

The film adaptation of Wicked is currently in production and Stephen Schwartz revealed at Comic Con that the film will feature plenty of new songs!

Warm up those vocal pipes and get your best “Defying Gravity” cape dry cleaned, the Wicked film is gearing up for production at long last! The Broadway hit, currently in its 13th year, has had audiences clamoring for a filmed production since Idina Menzel Kristin Chenoweth brought Elphba and Glinda to life. Now, that dream is becoming a reality, but probably not with the original cast.

At the CW3PR’s 8th Annual Behind-The-Music: Crime, Death and Resurrection Panel at Comic Con, Stephen Schwartz the man behind the music of Wicked appeared to announce that the film will feature songs both old and new. The “old” of course includes songs from the stage production such as “Defying Gravity,” “Popular,” and most likely, “One Fine Day.” But it also includes songs that were written and cut from the production before its Broadway opening.

Winnie Holzman will be writing the screenplay as she also wrote the book to the stage show based on Gregory Maguire’s novel. Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) is attached to direct.

You can watch Schwartz’s announcement from the panel below!

Now its time to start some casting speculations! It is my hope that the casting director sticks with strong Broadway talent to carry the roles. The musical has enough of a following to garner a strong viewership, but it also wouldn’t hurt to throw Menzel and Chenoweth in for a cameo or two!

Wicked is expected to hit theaters in December 2019.

U! S! A! U! S! A! A new Fantastic Beasts poster debuting at San Diego Comic-Con has American pride peppered into the design, giving us a hint at the film’s plot.

The film’s official social media channels unveiled Fantastic Beasts’ SDCC poster on Friday morning, just a day before the movie hosts a panel at the conference with the cast and crew. Presumably these posters will be handed out on the show floor, and/or at the Fantastic Beasts event.

There’s a lot to unpack in this poster, which features Newt and a brightly lit “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” sign.

Newt is looking over his shoulder in the middle, holding a wand in one hand and a suitcase (with a beast trying to get out!) in the other. Supporting characters Graves, Jacob, Queenie, and Tina appear in the wings. Also here: Our very first looks at two female characters. We believe the one in the bottom left is Mary Lou, played by Samantha Morton. The guy on the right is Credence played by Ezra Miller.

So what’s with the American flags? They’re not only to remind fans that the movie is set in New York — We believe they’re teasing an election of some sort. The last Fantastic Beasts trailer briefly depicted a political event (See a screenshot below). We’re guessing an election will be taking place over the course of the movie with possible ramifications for the well-being of the North American Wizarding World.

Fantastic Beasts opens this November. Return to Hypable on Saturday to check out our coverage of everything that happens during the movie’s panel!
