We're reached that weird point of the year here at Rock Father HQ where the Back-to-School season is about to hit full swing, but it feels like summer never really got to hit its stride. For us it's probably because we had The Rock Daughters™ in summer programs all the way through June (no break between the end of school and the start of those), but even if we hadn't - is summer really ever long enough? For many, August will bring that long-awaited road trip, or perhaps another type of sunny vacation to give the too-short season a send-off. Speaking of a "sunny vacation," that's just what Peppa Pig is taking with her family in her latest DVD release, appropriately-titled, PEPPA PIG: SUNNY VACATION! Out August 2 through 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, the new collection features the 4-part "Sunny Vacation" special, plus 8 additional fun-packed Peppisodes. After thinking of the true renaissance that Peppa Pig is currently enjoying and what big fans the girls are (we have the toys from Jazwares, the Softee-Dough from Cra-Z-Art, t-shirts for each girl and the "Muddy Puddles" song is sung often), perhaps we should give Peppa and her family a "sunny vacation" (or a sunny "holiday," as they'd say in Peppa's UK homeland) right here? And, it would give me a fine excuse for a little #Toyography and a chance to give all of you at home a chance to win PEPPA PIG: SUNNY VACATION on DVD!

"A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Marvel Studios' CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING" - That's the early synopsis given for the first SPIDER-MAN film to officially be a part of the MARVEL Cinematic Universe in a collaboration between MARVEL Studios and SONY.  Tonight at San Diego Comic-Con, the film's villain was revealed to be The Vulture, with concept art posted by the team at MARVEL.com. Additionally, some additional credits confirm that Tony Stark (if not Iron Man) will be making an appearance when the film swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.

While word is that fans at San Diego Comic-Con just got their first look at GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol. 2, I'm told we won't be seeing that footage online just yet. Those who are eager for something from GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY can check out the video below, in which Joe Rohde of Disney Imagineering details plans for Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!, a new immersive experience coming to Disney's California Adventure theme park in 2017. Aside from that, we've got a look at the new logos and cast announcements for some upcoming entries into the MARVEL Cinematic Universe, including GOTG2, BLACK PANTHER (Starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira), THOR: RAGNAROK and CAPTAIN MARVEL (Brie Larson as Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers), in addition to a behind-the-scenes featurette on Black Panther from the upcoming CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR in-home release.

We just found out that the Robin costume is red, yellow and green for a very scary reason... it was once an alternate Batman costume known as "Reggae Man." Since this writer can't stand the music of Bob Marley, you can understand my terror at this revelation, but what else I can tell you is that February 2017 will bring forth a Batman movie that you can actually take your little ones to see (especially if the SUICIDE SQUAD promo has them all excited to see Harley Quinn and The Joker) - THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE! After a handful of teaser trailers, a proper look at the film has arrived thanks to the in-progress San Diego Comic-Con, and the good folks at Warner Bros. have placed it online for non-attendees like you and me to enjoy. Check it out!

Get a fresh look at MARVEL's DOCTOR STRANGE below! Indeed, things are gonna geting weird strange, and the whole family is gonna want to see this one in theaters this November, because the impossibilities are endless...
