I'm a huge Marvel Comics fan! I love everything Marvel. From Games, to Movies, to cartoons and beyond! But I'll try not to narrow my blogging focus in just Marvel related stories. (But honestly.. The majority will be Marvel Stories) Because, in fact. Being the nerd/geek that I am. I love all things in the medium. DC, Anime, Games, Comics, TV, Movies. You name it... If its in the realm of Geekdom.. I'm there! You'll be able to find me on various social media sites. Facebook, twitter and Instagram. More soon to come.

NETFLIX and CHILL: ‘GoodBye DISNEY, Hello MILLARWORLD!(?)’

Sooo.. As we all have heard and well know by now. Disney has decided to pull its massive disney D!€Ω, out of Netflix and go solo with its own streaming app, at the very end of 2018. 

That means. All Disney products, Pixar, Disney Animation, ABC productions, ESPN Programing (ie: 30 for 30), Movies (live action and animated) Disney Channel Shows, everything and anything associated with that freaking Mouse is leaving Netflix and being streamed exclusively on their new (as of yet un-named) App. 

Now, what does this mean for the “Netflix Exclusive” Marvel Shows? 

Well… Although Marvel is under the Disney Banner, The contract Netflix has with Marvel and those exclusive shows lasts just a bit longer then the end of 2018.. Probably another year or so more. However, at this moment (to public knowledge) Netlfix is currently speaking with Disney on extending the contract for Marvel Brand titles, and Star Wars Titles. 

(Which makes sense, seeing that those could be the most viewed programming at the moment.) 

So for the time being, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, The Defenders, The Punisher are still going to be available on Netflix for the forseeable future. IF! No extension is granted to Netflix by disney for these properties.. Be prepared to see them slowly bleed away to the Disney App.

IN OTHER NEWZ! 

Prior to Disney’s announcement to part ways with Netflix. Netflix itself, reported thier very first outside acquisition. MILLARWORLD Publication. 

Mark Millar’s Comic Publication 

which includes the titles WANTED,

 KINGSMEN, 

KICK-ASS,

 SUPERIOR, 

EMPRESS,

 NEMESIS 

and many more.

That means, We can expect brand new original content coming To Netflix in the coming months and years. Based off of these many titles. On the flipside of that coin though..

WANTED, KINGSMEN and (probably) KICKASS are still licensed by other studios and companies.. So until those licenses run out or Netflix makes a deal for them.. We wont be seeing those exact titles anytine soon. BUT! Nemesis is one title i have been most interested in seeing come to life. Its like, What If Batman, took all those skills, all that money, and all that intelligence and became the foremost badass super criminal/terrorist the world has ever known. So, i am looking forward to that. 

That being said, it’s not all bad that Disney is leaving in another year and a half from now. Im sure both companies can still find away to do successful business together. Millarworld is a very nice and exciting consultation prize. Millar has crafted a series of wonderfully written masterworks. Very suitable for live action translations. I am very certain, that everything will turn out for the Best for everyone involved.

But! What do YOU folks think?! leave a comment. A LIKE. Subscribe/Follow! And thx so much for reading!

Until next time folks… Peace Out!

“MY THOUGHTS ON.. Marvel And Fox’s ‘Secret’ Relationship”

Greetings ladies and gentelnerds! 

When it was announced that Josh Brolin was cast as CABLE for “DEADPOOL 2”. The news, understandably, confused many fans. How can this actor be in two places at once?

Simple answer, its two completely different characters! But if we look a little deeper..

Like most companies/movie studios, or hell even sports teams. If you are signed in to a ‘Contract’. That means they own you. You cant go or do anything anywhere else that resembles what you do for them. IE: the no Compete Clause. 

Josh Brolin and many other Marvel Studios Stars are under that same No Compete Clause in thier contracts.. Meaning, No Marvel Studios employee can star or participate in other comic book properties outside of Marvel Studios. So, How is it that Marvel allowed Josh to head on over to Fox, whilst still under contract? And no its not because its another “Marvel” film.. It may have the Marvel Banner, but its not in the same house.

Here’s what it really is.. Marvel and Fox have a secret, backdoor relationship. 

In this relationship. “I’ll give you this, if you give me that.” 

Fox ownes everything and anything that falls under FANTASTIC FOUR, or X-MEN. 


Not including those that are Co-owned by Marvel and Fox. Like, RONIN THE ACCUSER, 

QUICKSILVER, and SCARLET WITCH

 just to name a known few. 

However! As we all know, EGO the living planet was a character that belonged to Fox. Yet he appeared in Marvel’s GUARDIANS Vol. 2.? Thats because..

Marvel and James Gunn approached Fox for Ego. Now, Fox being the opportunist said sure.. If you let us change Nega Sonic Teenage Warheads 

powers and design  for this little movie we are doing called, DEADPOOL. 

Marvel said.. “Deal!”

So, Who’s to say, this hasn’t happened more then once before.

James Gunn has stated his interest in using the Skrulls. If im not mistaken.. I think it was for Guardians 1. But the Skrulls belong to Fox. So he went with the Sakaarens! 

Here’s the interesting part. Marvel recently announced that The Skrulls, will be the villains of CAPTAIN MARVEL! 



So.. Was the Josh Brolin deal the key component of Marvel getting the Skrulls? 


Or was it, or is it, something else? 

We can only wait and see. But this secret relationship between Marvel and Fox looks to be a benefit for not only the companies. But for the fans as well. 

I for one cant wait to see what other trades and deals come out from these two.. 

Hopefully.. Its something good, and something soon.. *cough* SILVER SURFER!! *cough* *cough*

Until next time folks.. Peace out!

“WHY NOW, COULD BE THE TIME FOR A ‘CONEHEADS 2’!”

To this day ‘CONEHEADS’ is one of my most favorite SNL sketches turned Movie out of the several that we have had. (‘Night at The Ruxberry’ being another absolute fav)

I cant recall if any actual talks of a sequel have ever happened. But Now would be a great opprotunity for Dan Aykroyd and Co. To take advantage. 

“How would a ConeHeads 2 go?” You ask.. HERE’S HOW!

Beldar (Aykroyd) and Family are flourishing. Things have been going great. But, In this new day and age Beldar finds himself still struggling to fit in with Earth and its modern times. Add his new found role as a Grandfather to his millennial Grandkids, things get tougher. 
Start the film in 2016, right at the offset of the presidential election.. Beldar votes for Trump (que puns and jokes there) and boom..

Trump is elected and immigration is of course his first agenda. 

I would have Alec Baldwin play Trump in this, because, lets face it.. He’s awesome!

And it would be hilarious. Someone Trump hires finds out that Beldar and his family are not legal immagrints and that their records were falsified back in ’93. Also include that the Emporor of the coneheads discovers that Beldar deceived them and a full scale invasion ensues. 

The rest writes itself. With the current political and social climate of today. A Coneheads 2 could take on those issues in a clever and hilarious way. It doesnt have to be preachy or anything.. But it could lighten things up a bit! Poke a little fun at america at its current state.

With Chris Farley long gone. (Sadley) 

I would cast Josh Gad 

As the husband to Connie Conehead. 

Bring back a lot of the original cast. Including Sinbad and David Spade, and keep the budget to a 10 to 15 million.. Heck! It can go straight to Netflix if they want to. That would be just as cool. And they could have a massive comedy hit!

Anywho.. Thats just my thoughts on the matter.. 

HEY! Mr. Aykroyd.. Get started on this PLEASE!! 

Until Next time folks.. Peace Out!

“ICYMI: FIRST LOOKS AT “DEADPOOL 2’s” DOMINO & CABLE!” (bare with me, im trying to catch up)

Okie dokie, ladies and gentelnerds.. This will be short and sweet..

Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds showed the world our first looks at Zazie Beets and Josh Brolin as Domino and Cable (respectively)

ZAZIE BEETS as DOMINO

Not exactly comic accurate to say the least..

But Zazie Looks beautiful! I really dig this new, fresh look to the character. She looks bad ass and i cant wait to see her in action. Only 1 gripe.. Just 1.. Seriously couldnt go with the Black Spot on the eye? Seriously? I mean.. Eh! But whateves.. Im sure it will work on the screen. 

JOSH BROLIN as CABLE

Holy.. Fuck! 

Thats pretty damn accurate! Nice job 20th century Fox.. Not bad at all! 

Great casting on both ends. Great costuming. Deadpool 2 is already shaping out to be More awesome then the first!

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

SPECIAL EDITION: “MY THOUGHTS ON.. SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017” Prt. 3

Ok folks.. Im thinking this will be the final installment in this special edition “My Thoughts On.. Sand Diego Comic Con 2017”

In this article, we’re gonna take a look at “AVENGERS:INFINITY WAR”

Well… What can be said about the Infinity War presentation?.. Not much honestly. They showed the same trailer from D23 at Comic Con. Still no official release from Marvel or Marvel Studios. Although a leaked camera phone quality version is available online. Its not bad.. But, WTF Marvel?! Whats the hold up?! 

Besides that. As I am slowly writing this article, News was announced that Brolin’s Thanos will return for the as of yet “Untitled” Avengers 4. 

Some folks still believe that perhaps Infinity War will be a one and done thing. But i honestly believe that Avengers 4, will be ‘Infinity Gauntlet’.

[SPECULATION MODE: ACTIVATED]

Infinity ‘WAR’ will be most likely the “War” for the Stones themselves. In the teaser trailer that was leaked. Thanos (spoilers) only possesses The Tesserect (space stone) Allowing him to travel from point A to point B. Im pretty sure they show a devestated Collectors vault, which Means he may also have The Ether (reality Stone). I believe there was probably a shot of a wrecked Nova Corp. So perhaps the power stone will be in play as well.. 

This whole film will be the formation of the Gauntlet.. The battle for the stones. 

By the end of it all.. Thanos will raise his completed Gauntlet and.. Then..

“To Be Continued..”

Thats how Infinity War will end. At least thats how it should end.

Well.. I think that will just about do it for this special series.. Thank you all for reading.. Please leave a like, follow, comment. 

Until next time folks… Peace Out!

SPECIAL EDITION: “MY THOUGHTS ON.. SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017” Prt.2

Hello, Ladies and Gentelnerds and welcome to Prt. 2 of my special edition segment of “My Thoughts On..” Todays Topic? 

TODD MCFARLANE IS DIRECTING THE SPAWN REBOOT!…( Finally!)

Now.. When i had first heard word of this.. My eyes went straight up Undertaker on me

Like.. “Really?! He’s STILL talking about doing a reboot? And he wants to direct it?! IF it does happen, its gonna be like what…a 5 hour movie?” I had very little faith in the report when i first heard it. Very little faith in Todd’s ability as a director. I just saw it as another Comic Con of him saying “Im gonna do it. Its gonna be great. I have a 500 page script ready to go. Its gonna be great!” the same thing he has been saying for many years now..

BUT! Then i dug a little deeper in to the story. Turns out, Jason Blum 

founder and creator of BlumHouse Productions

The studio behind such films as..

And much more recent and highly acclaimed films such as..

WHIPLASH

SPLIT

GET OUT

Has joined with McFarlane to produce a R-Rated, modestly budgeted reboot of SPAWN! 

The last time Spawn was seen on the big screen was (as of now) 20 years ago with Micheal Jai White in the starring role 

With John Leguizamo co starring as The Clown/Violator 

It was.. 1996-97.. I recently rewatched it on Netflix. The CGI, does not hold up at all! 

Not in the slightest. The acting is.. C-grade at best. The action, is so-so. I was a kid when this came out and it will always hold a place in my heart. But it is time for an upgrade. 

Spawn did have a very successful run on HBO with 3 seasons of an Animated Series.

If the new film is even remotely close to the darkness of the series, then they just may have a real winner.

But what really caught my attention, and actiually made me jump on board with Todd and this Spawn reboot.. Was Todd himself.. 

When the announcement was madeb Todd spoke with Collider  Video and Steve ‘Frosty’ Wientraub. (Video link will be at the end of this article… Dont you DARE skip ahead!.. Im almost finished..)

His thoughts and views on where he wants to take this movie and this story. How he plans to approach it. And his explinations as to why it took so long.. It sold me. He got me on board with this movie. I hope it turns out great. 

HOWEVER! One thing that does concern me.. Todd stated that Sam and Twitch (mainly Sam) would feature heavily in the story. Which makes me wonder, what and how will this effect Kevin Smith’s ‘Sam and Twitch’ BBC Series? 

Will they be completley seperating the two? Will it be connected? Im just curious. 

What also excites me is, If this Spawn is successful. Blumhouse and Image could look in to an extended universe. Wicthblade? 

The Darkness? 

Hell! I want a fucking Haunt movie too!

So, here’s hoping Todd and Blumhouse are successful. Im excited. What do you folks think? Hit me up! 

Heres that video i promised..


Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

SPECIAL EDITION: My Thoughts On.. “SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017” prt. 1

Greetings ladies and Gentelnerds, and welcome to a very special edition of “MY THOUGHTS ON..” that little article i do from time to time expressing my various thoughts and, sometimes, speculations on certain topics.

This series will focus on the news and stories that cane out this past San Diego Comic Con International 2017. Instead of a straight forward review on the event as a whole. I decided to break it up into parts to focus on a single topic at one time.

This first part i want to talk about the freshest thing on my mind at the moment, and that is..

It was a pretty quick presentation by Kevin Fiege, with not much pizzazz put into it. The film is very much in its early stages. But we did get very cool concept art reveals. Such as,

THE SUIT:

With a much clearer look at what Brie Larson would look like in the suit and what the suit would look like. Its very much a piece for piece recreation of the suit Carol Danvers wears in the comics today, without the scarf tied around the waist. It looks like it would be a beautiful thing to see on screen

THE “PLOT”(?)

Honestly. We don’t know a damn thing about the actual plot. But what Fiege DID say, was that Captain Marvel will take place during the 90’s. Well before the events of the first IRON MAN. And co-starring with Larson will be her ‘KONG’ co star, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury

(Speculation mode: activate)

Perhaps we will see just exactly how Fury lost his eye, 

‘Them ain’t no normal scars there broski!’

Also! Since this film will take place in the 90’s. Perhaps we will get a nice cameo of (Now Former) Head of S.H.I.E.L.D (Now Former) Hydra Operative- Donald Pierce?

Played Masterfully by Robert Redford in “CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER”

It would be really cool and would tie in to the rest of the already established universe. What’s also a plus, is that they wont have to use that fancy reverse ageing tech on Sam Jackson, brother hasn’t aged since “The Negotiator”

THE VILLAINS:

The Skrulls!!! 

Hell fucking yeah!!

Probably the most comic to screen accurate translation I’ve ever seen. They look so damn bad ass! 

If we look close at the promotional art released at Comic Con, 

Carol Danvers is going to battle not only Skrulls, but also, 

Kree Sentry’s or Soldiers, if you will. 

Something i found very interesting. 

It would appear that this story would put Carol smack dab in the middle of the Kree/Skrull war! Very exciting amd very interesting. There is still so much to anticipate to come from this movie.. Casting, Directing, plot.. Im so excited. 

(BRAIN FART: what if this movie also introduces us to.. Richard Rider, aka NOVA!? 

As powerful as Captain Marvel Is.. It wouldn’t be a surprise to me if she does get a little help taking on the Kree/Skrull’s.. Its just a thought..)

Many are quick to asssume that this will mean that a Skrull ‘Secret Invasion’ story line will be Avengers 4… My thoughts on that!?… Will have to wait for another time, in another blog.
