“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!

“DAY 2 OF DISNEY’S D23 FAN EXPO” (Five days later)

Okay.. Im late with this article, because  I’ve been sooo… How do you say? PISSED! At what came out of D23 day 2.. Or should i say, What didn’t come out of Day 2! I’m gonna try and make this quick

So, basicly Marvel Studios had it’s time to shine at Day 2 of D23. Releasing two new official posters for “AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR”

Nerdgasmic!, am i right?

They also unvailed the 4 mystery characters set to appear in the film. 

And No! It was not the Fantastic Four. 

As mostly every logical fan predicted, it was in fact THE BLACK ORDER!

Or as they are being called, “THE CHILDREN OF THANOS” meaning that in the MCU they are the siblings of Gamora and Nebula.

Corvus Glave

Proxima Midnight

Ebony Maw

And Black Dwarf

But prior to that unveiling, Kevin Fiege took the stage to introduce Thanos himself, James Brolin and most of the cast. Along with one of the directors Joe Russo (Anthony Russo most likely still filming the rest of the film) 
Joe Russo then went on to show a nice little 10th anniversary retrospective video celebrating the upcoming anniversary… Then, at the tail end of that footage… 

A Fucking Trailer followed! A fucking trailer! That, according to those who saw it, it was fucking epic! 

“Why do you sound so angry about that?” you ask?…

THEY HAVEN’T RELEASED IT!! To this day… July 20th, 2017 as i write this right now! NOTHING! NOT EVEN A SINGLE TEASE! When asked if Marvel would drop it online, Joe Russo said, “Very Soon.”

We’ve (I’ve) been waiting all these damn days!!

(Those who have seen Spider-Man: Homecoming will get the reference)

*Deep Breath*

Ok.. It’s thursday as i said, as i write this. And SDCC Is set to kick off in a few hours (West Coast Time) I immediately jumped to google and looked up the SDCC line up. 

Best bet.. The Avengers:Infinity War trailer should drop just after Marvel Studios’ presentation in Hall H on Saturday, just around… 5:30- 7:00 pm Western time.. Thats like…

2.. Carry the 1.. ÷ by 5.. × 18… Subtract 6… Hmm… I think roughly 8Pm eastern standard time… So! Those of us over here… Have a bit of a wait.. Unless.. Maybe 8am? Shit.. Fuck this time zone shit. We’ll get it some time saturday afternoon or later. Either way, we still gotta wait. Fuck!!

Oh yea.. They also showed stuff from the live action Lion King and some other neat stuff… yay… 😕

Thats all the time i got folks.. Gotta work on another article. So, until next time.. Peace Out!

MY THOUGHTS ON: “THE ‘HAN SOLO’ MOVIE DRAMA”

Wasabi ladies and gentelnerds. Bare with me as i try to catch up on a lot of shit that ive missed..

So! As some of you may have heard, Phil Lord and Chris Miller 

The minds behind the Lego Movie were the directors of the, as of yet to be titled, STAR WARS: Anthology “HAN SOLO” Film. 

Everything seemed to be flowing along fine..

The cast was set. The script ready to go. And filming was going along smoothly. Or so we thought. With just two and a half months left to completion with principal photography ( in which the bulk of the movie is filmed and put together.) Kathleen Kennedy, the force in charge of the empire, 

Announced that Lord and Miller would no longer be the directors of the film. 

“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways. A new director will be announced soon.” 

 Lord & Miller also released a statement, 

“We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew.”

According to many unnamed sources. The Creative Differences was indeed the issue. Especially with EP Lawrence Casden. The man that co-produced and co-wrote every STAR WARS film since “Empire Strikes Back”. Reports state that Lord & Miller clashed with the higer ups since day one. Casden not approving of thier loosy goosey style of directing and heavy improve on most of the script (which Casden Also Co-wrote.) 

Lead Actor, Alden Ehnerich (dont know if I’ve spelt that right) voiced some concerns over the directors to other Producers on set. Saying he wasnt very sure of the “Ace Ventura” style of characterization of Han Solo. Stating further that some of the “slap stick” style of direction wasnt making him comfortable with the character. Word spread to Kennedy and Casden. And one may assume after a long meeting. Kennedy gave them the axe. 

Luckily, things seem to be of mutual agreement and thier doesn’t seem to be hard feelings. So Lucasfilm/Disney coukd veey well team with Miller & Lord in the future. So thats a good thing.

It didn’t take long for Kennedy to announce thier replacment. Non other then long time Firend of all involved, including Lucas himself, 

Good ol’ Ron Howard gets behind the camera of his very first Star Wars film. Granted, its under wierd circumstances. But, at least He’s doing it. 

The challange for Howard tho, how much of the film would he have to re shoot later in Pick-Ups. ( The time after production and during post production, where the cast and crew get together for a few more months to re shoot scenes that didnt turn out good the first time, or didnt have the time to shoot, or for adding new scenes to add or replace old ones.) That could be a daunting task if the bulk of the film needs to be redone. Which could cost the studio money and push back the films release date. 

Its all rather amazing to hear and see all thats happened so far. Lucasfilm is notorious for keeping all behind the scenes stuff under very close wrap. So its amazing that we know this much. 

I remain very hopeful for The Han Solo movie. Ron Howard is a tremendous talent behind the camera. The cast is clearly a solid cast. STAR WARS, LucasFilm, and Disney has not fucked up as of yet. So i give them the benefit of the doubt and remain sure that they can turn this whole ship right back on course.

What do you folks think? Are you worried about the Han Solo Film? Let me know what you think!

Untik next time folks.. Peace Out!

ATTENTION! “OVERWATCH” ENTHUSIASTS AND PLAYERS: EXCITING OPPORTUNITY AHEAD!

Greetings and salutations Ladies and gentelnerds. This is a public service announcement..

“HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED A VIDEO GAME COMPETITION ONLINE SOMEWHERE AND SEE THESE TEAMS  WALK AWAY WITH BIG CHECKS FOR PLAYING A GAME, AND FIGURE.. ‘HEY! I CAN DO THAT SHIT!'”

Well.. Your in luck! Such an opprotunity is smacking you in the face right now!

My twitter buddy and all around cool guy @Geometrick1598 is opening up a one of a kind opprotunity to fellow “OVERWATCH” Players.. Here it is in his own words.. 

“I’m looking for anyone one who wants to be part of a new and fresh team. Submerge Overwatch. PS4 players. Players who really have that dream and passion to improve, and become a pro player. Be part of a team where we would all help each other reach great heights. Players who aren’t toxic and decide to leave the team after one loss. I need for everyone to be positive and always looking for ways to better themselves. Losing only leads to victory. My goal is to have a team that can compete in online tournements, win ladder games, and hopefully one day be in a big prize pool tournament and win.”

BREAKING NEWZ!!: “SONY ANNOUNCES MAJOR STAR FOR “VENOM” SOLO FILM!”

As you may have already heard. Sony has cast Venom for their stand alone film, scheduled for an October 2018 release.

As reported by COLLIDER NEWS’ John Campea (video link at the end of this article) Sony Pictures has cast TOM HARDY as Eddie Brock aka VENOM! 

This is fucking HUGE for me right now. First talk of a stand alone Venom film with out any connection to Spider-Man was a pretty big “Fuck No!” from me. Then i thought about it further after hearing of the Black Cat/ Silver Sable film, i figured.. “Ok, Maybe.. But do it right..” 

NOW.. Your telling me that you got Tom Fucking Hardy as Eddie Brock Venom?.. “FUCK YEAH BITCH!! Lets do this.” 

Granted.. This does not fully guarantee that this is going to be the greatest movie ever. They still have that hurdle of making this story work with out Spider-Man. Best of luck to them. But this right here, is a fantastic move on their part.
