“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!

“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!

BREAKING NEWZZZ! (?) Maybe?! “DEADPOOL 2 has a CABLE?”

Has Josh Brolin just confirmed he has been cast as CABLE?! I literally just spotted this on my Instagram Feed.. I might be a little late with this news.. But wow! 

Haven’t heard anything yet to the contrary. He could be trolling thr fans maybe.. But wow! How cool is this?! 

He’s not only THANOS The Mad Titan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 

But now, He joins the Marvel/Fox X-Universe as CABLE!

In my research before posting this.. 

IT IS OFFICIAL! 

JOSH BROLIN is our CABLE in DEADPOOL 2!

I am loving this news. what do you folks think?!

MY THOUGHTS ON.. “The Future Of Logan and X23!” (WARNING: Logan Movie Spoilers Ahead)


Logan is dead.. There.. I said it! 
Someone asked me (@anarchyanthon on twitter) Would I want to see a follow up to Logan, that followed Laura (x23)? 

I said.. “I wasnt sure” I had just seen the movie and the wounds were still freash. Now, i am a few days removed and i can honestly say.. “No!” 

Whats done is done. LOGAN ended perfectly. It would be a shame to try and follow such a fitting conclusion to Wolverine’s story. 

Thats not to say Fox should be done with X23. Not at all. They should be done with this version of her though. This version of X23 has served her purpose. 

Dafne Keen was perfect. She played the part beautifully. But i think we can step away for now.

Fox, should let us deal with the events of Logan. Rest. Regroup. And within the next 5 years, maybe.. Just maybe.. We will be ready for a fully grown, full fledged Laura Kinney, X23 aka The All New Wolverine! 

Back in the day, i posted a possible way they could introduce her and Daken (Wolverines son) in to the X-Men Universe.. You can check it out here ๐Ÿ‘‡

โ€œTHE WOLVERINE LEGACY: WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN IN THE NEXT X-MEN SERIES!โ€ (APOCALYPSE SPOILERS POSSIBLEโ€ฆ – http://wp.me/p5F7r8-tv
which weirdly enough.. We kinda got Daken in ‘Logan’ (Spoiler Alert!) The bad guys create another clone, X24 which looks just like Logan, but full of berserker rage! A mindless killer.

The bonus ending of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ featured Essex Corp. Mr. Sinister’s company. The scene that showed a mysterious individual taking Wolverine’s blood  from Alkaline Lake. Non of that played into ‘Logan’. No Essex Corp. No, Mr. Sinister. Nothing. Perhaps they will hold on to that pay off in a future movie? I think that would be best. Unless they completley scrap that idea. Then that would be yet another dumb ass decision by Fox. 

Hugh.. Is done. Wolverine.. Is, for now.. Gone. In a few years. We move on to X23, have Wolverine as just a faceless figure who hangs around in hushed voices and fond memories. He’s out there. But we dont have him on screen for a while. Lets focus on X23. 

Those are just my thoughts. Let me know what you think. Hit me up, comment below. Please like and follow the blog. Thx for reading folks.

Until next time.. Peace out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!: “LOGAN”(No Spoilers)

Greetings and salutations, Ladies and Gentelnerds! And welcome to another addition of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!”

Today’s Movie (if it isnt obvious..) 

“LOGAN” 

THE STORY: 

James Howlett (aka: Logan) has been serving out his years as a Limo Driver for hire down in the southwest. His days as an X-Man long gone and far in the past. After a mysterious event took out the X-Men, all that is left, is him and a sickly and aged Professor Xavier. Mutants are all but extenict. Logans quiet life is turned upside down when a young girl with the same powers as his, shows up

with a band of secret government soldiers, known as “The Revers” on her tail. 

Logan reluctantly comes to the girls aid. Only to discover her shocking history and what it means for his future.

Very, very.. VERY loosely based on the hit graphic novel “Old Man Logan” 

By Mark Millar and Steve Mcniven. The only similaritys are Logan, it takes place in the future and theres a road trip.. Literally.. Thats all that has this film resembeling the comic. But you know what.. It does not matter.

“LOGAN” is a beautiful movie. It transcends beyond a comic book film. Its a movie about a man coming to grips with himself. Past, Present and Future. After so many years of physical and mental abuse, from himself and outside forces, Logan learns what it means.. To be human. To feel, Happy.. To feel Love. The story, is short for the films 2 hr run time. But it is very simple and to the point. James Mangold directed a masterpiece of a film. He also wrote the story and co-wrote the screenplay. Which was brilliant. 

THE CAST: 

First and foremost.. Dafne Keen, stole the Mother Fucking Show! 

Her X-23 was probably the best part of the movie. Besides Hugh Jackman, She was.. Phenomenal. She literally stole every frame she was in. As i did some research as i began to write this review. It turns out, this is the young ladys very first film debut.. And what a debut! She had a previous role on a tv series called “Refugees”. But Logan is her first feature film and she Rocked it.

It sucks that this is Hugh Jackmans final turn as Wolverine. But he really brought his A game for this.. And thats saying something. Cause everytime he puts on those claws, he is on point. Every Time. But, somehow.. This felt different. His performance was.. Heavier, of you will. He reall capped it all off pefectly and i Hate to see him go. I really do. 

Patrick Stewart’s Xavier is as always, wonderful and yet.. Extremely differnt. I’ve never heard Xavier drop so many F bombs in my entire life. And im happy i got to experience it. This also being Stewarts last go around as Xavier.. It was a beautiful, yet heartbreaking send off for him and the character. 

THE POSITIVES: 

Direction. Acting. Story. Cinematography.. Everything was beautifully done. Honestly.. Its near perfection. 

THE NEGATIVES: 

The fact that it is not in any continuity to any of the previous films at all, is not a negative. What, IS a negative for me.. I would have loved to have seen the Continuity it would have sprang from. (if that makes any sense) I wish more of the other movies were within this time frame.

 For a 2hr 17 min film.. I wanted more. It left me wanting more. Not that it doesnt end well.. I just didnt want it to end, i guess? I feel like more could have been added in the begining, middle and end. I feel like, there might have been more material left on the editing floor and i hope we get a longer cut on the DVD release (hopefully).

 There could have been more.. Bonding time for X23 and Logan. Or i would have at least appreciated a little more togetherness. 

A flashback of (SPOILERS) when (Spoiler) reveals (Spoiler) before hes (Spoiler) by (Spoiler) Wow.. Didnt think i could pull that off.. Now! Here’s the trick. If you have seen the film, and can guess what the fuck im talking about. Please feel free to hit me up with the answer and your thoughts.

OVERALL: 

“LOGAN” is in fact, the “The Dark Knight” of the X-Men franchise of Movies (and it only took them 8 movies and 20 some odd years to get it done.) An honest to goodness Masterpiece from start to finish. It grabs you by the neck on a coaster ride of emotions, and doesnt let you go until the very end.. And when its over.. You wish you never stopped. You will laugh. You will cry. You will be happy. You will be sad. And then, when all is said and done, You Will Be Greatful. I give “LOGAN” a score of ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ 9/10 (probably my higest score to date.) You have to see this. 

Thank you all so much for reading and before I go.. I just want to send a message to James Mangold and the People at 20th Century Fox.. Although i know they may never read this.. “Please, Re release Logan around Oscar voting season later this year, in Black and White. Have Hugh Jackman up for best actor, Patrick Stewart best Supporting, Dafne Keen Best Supporting Actress( or best Lead is fine) and Logan for Best Picture and Best screenplay and best cinematography and yourself for Best Director. This Movie.. Truly deserves such recognition. And also.. Thank You! Thank you for such a beautiful and wonderful movie experiance.”

Have you guys seen Logan yet, what did you think? Hit me up. Please leave a like. And pkease follow/subscribe. Thank You.

Until Next Time Folks… Peace Out!

“MY THOUGHTS ON.. FOX’S FUTURE WITH THE X-MEN UNIVERSE”

Greetings, ladies and gentelnerds and welcome to yet another thought provoking article of ‘PBS’ quality proportions… 

So! While WB/DC is trying to get itself together like Humpty Dumpty, and Marvel Studios is full steam ahead into its Phase 4. FOX is trudging ever forward with their X-Men Universe. (Should i even call it that?) 

After the “disappointment” that was ‘X-Men:Apocalypse’ (I personally, enjoyed it and found it entertaining for what it was. Flaws and all.) And many of the actor contracts being done with the completion of that movie. Many believed X-Men’s future would be headed for yet another Reboot. 
However, it appears that would not be the case. Fox is moving forward with the  current X-Men “Continuity” (I use that term very very loosely.) established in ‘Apocalypse’. Meaning many of the young cast members from that film, will be coming back.


Now, that can suggest they will either be coming back for another ‘X-Men’ titled film OR the much talked about “New Mutants” movie. Neither has been confirmed on either matter.

X-FORCE, also is currently in full planning stages. A script and scriptwriter has been established at this point. Cast in characters has not been brought up for discussion as of yet. 

DEADPOOL 2, Is still in development, with a scheduled production date coming this.. Summer? I believe. Even After a little slip up with the whole director situation. Everything seems to be going smoothly. 
And lastly.. Probably the real reason why i wanted to write this article. Fox is currently in talks with long time X-Writer and Producer Simon Kinberg,

to direct the next Upcoming X-Film.. And He himself, has stated that he wants to do, The Dark Phoenix Saga.. 

(Turn away children.. Explosive Rant in t-minus.. 3.2.1..)
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!  Why the fuck cant they leave the damn phoenix saga the fuck alone?! They’ve tried that before, and failed fucking miserably. Its fucking done! Leave it the fuck alone!. There are just too many components needed to tell that story properly and with its proper respect. They’ve fucked the continuty up. They fucked the Phoenix’s actual origin up royally. Not only that.. Kinberg hasnt directed a damn thing.. Ever! Not so much as even a commercial or a DVD extra. He has zero experiance with directing. Now.. Devils advocate.. He has been a producer and writer of these films since X-3: The Last Stand. So hes been in the trenches. He has his tentacles in everything right now. Star Wars, X-Men, lots of things! However.. This is also the same motherfucking dumb piece of shit that gave us.. THIS!..

Thats right folks.. He wrote and produced and (according to some. Not sure if true) Edited/ghost directed, this piece of shit of a.. I dont want to even call it a movie! TRASH!

There’s plenty of other more qualified Directors out there. And more importanly.. There are severel, thousands even, of great X-Men Stories to mine that can be translated for the big screen. For example..

Just to name a few. They seriously need to stop with the Phoenix stuff. Get off her clit for fucks sake! 

Be original or something. FUCK! 

I think im done folks.. Let me knw what you folks think. Hit me up. 

Until, next time folks.. Peace Out!
