“MY THOUGHTS ON.. SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017: What I’m Looking For From The Big Show!”

Wasabi! Ladies and Gentelnerds! Well, Sand Diego Comic Con International 2017 has begun and is in full swing. Already, so far, we’ve gotten some cool new clips and trailers from various properties. As i write this, we are.. Entering day 3. 

Lots of great stuff has come out. Trailers and sneek peeks at stuff like,

THE DEFENDERS:

DEATH NOTE:

THE WALKING DEAD:

PACIFIC RIM 2:

THE INHUMANS:

BRIGHT:

KINGSMAN 2:

And so much more! 

BUT!! It’s now Saturday. Day 3! 

DC/WB and MARVEL STUDIOS are set to have thier presentations at the famed Hall H. So since a lot of things have already dropped before i cpuld finish this article. Im going to focus on just those two.

DC/WB:

It’s been reported that DC/WB has 2 special movie announcements set for thier Hall H Presentation. They did recently let out that SHAZAM is set to go in front of cameras by January or February of next year. And the director of Lights Out and Annabelle 2 is the director of Shazam.  If they are smart, that would not be one of those films they announce. Otherwise it would be a total waste of thier time.
My hope is that those 2 secret films are BATGIRL with an official release and shoot day and also announce thier Lead Actress for Barbra Gordon. Joss Weadon should be the one to make the announcement. And the second film should be, MAN OF STEEL 2! Its being rumored to be ready to go, but we will see. 

There are of course other things to come out of that panel. New Justice League trailer. Possible AQUAMAN footage. Casting Announcements could come as well. And perhaps news of Wonder Woman 2?! 

I’m excited for this panel!

MARVEL STUDIOS:

INFINITY WAR TRAILER!!!!

Just release it already! Geez! 

Also more news and updates for upcoming Marvel Projects. Captain Marvel’s Director, maybe? Some concept art could be cool. More Black Panther and Thor 3 footage could be dropped at the panel as well. More casting news. And lastly.. Perhaps.. The title for Avengers 4 could be dropped at the panel as well. 

Lot’s of things to look forward to tomorrow/today. I/ We’ve been waiting a long time for this day. I pray Marvel comes through. 

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!

“ICYMI: FIRST LOOK AT MARVEL’S “BLACK PANTHER” AND NEW POSTER!”

Greetings! Ladies and Gentelnerds,

Early yesterday afternoon Marvel and Marvel Studios released the first official poster (and official release date) for next years…

Feb 16, 2018 The King Takes his throne.

With the drop of the poster, word was put out that a teaser trailer would drop later that night.

So, during some sporting event of non importance.. This!.. Awesome tease for the film was released… In Case You Missed It.. Here you go..

Wakanda looks beautiful. And just by looking at most of the promotional concept art of the film, 

And looking at the trailer.. This is going to be a beautiful looking movie. I think Black Panther is going to leave a lasting mark on the MCU.

Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER, starring Chadwick Boesman opens next year, Feb 16. 

I for one am so fucking hyped!! This was an excellent teaser! What did you folks think? Leave a comment below!

Until next time folks.. Peace out!

“THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF “DC vs MARVEL” 1996-2016!”

Greetings Ladies and Gentelnerds! It’s come to my attention that this past April-May marked the 20th anniversary of the epic collaboration between the big two,

“MARVEL vs DC”!

image

A four part miniseries event that was truly epic in its day.

image

Although it was not the first time the companies produced something together,

image image image image image

And it wasn’t the last..

image

But.. 1996’s meeting between the two companies was actually pretty historic. This was probably the first time they decided to say, ‘Screw it! Lets see who’s the best!’ And they left the decision up to Us, The Fans!

We were asked to vote on the deciding battles, Who would win in battles between..

Superman/Hulk

image

Batman/Captain America

image

Spiderman/SuperBoy

image

Storm/Wonder Woman

image

And Wolverine/ Lobo

image

The winner would decide which company was on top! But it wasn’t just that.. The fact that WE were involved was awesome! It was a fanboys/girls dream.. Our favorite characters were all together for the first time ever! They even Joined together as one company for a moment..

THE AMALGAM UNIVERSE!

image

They story also featured some truly classic moments.. Like,

THOR vs SHAZAM!

image

Wonder Woman being the first woman to ever to be deemed worthy..

image

Silver Surfer defeated Green Lantern

image

Superman punches Hulk into the Grand Canyon..

image

Wolverine and Gambit jacked the BatMobile..

image

And lets not forget..

Aquaman cheated against Namor!

image

So many classic moments!

But comics were different 20 years ago.. The characters were very different back then.. So.. That got me thinking!

20 years later.. IF! Marvel and DC could  find it in their heart of hearts, to give us fans another Epic Comic Crossover Event!

I present to You, “DC vs MARVEL 2!”

im not gonna pitch a whole storyline.. But here’s the characters of Today’s comics I think could fill the roster of the sequel!..

image image image image image image image image image image

Thats just a few that came to mind..

What do you folks think? What are some battles would you put into a DC vs Marvel 2 Event!?

If you haven’t yet read the classic DC vs Marvel event. In honor of its 20th birthday.. You should go out, find it, and enjoy!

Thx for reading.. And seriously.. Tell me your dream matches for a sequel to DC vs Marvel!

So, Until next time folks… Peace Out!

“HOW MARVEL SHOULD INTRODUCE, CAPTAIN MARVEL!”

Wasabi! Ladies and Gentelnerds.. And welcome back to the Marvel Inc Blog. Today I wish to talk about the subject of

image

(Note: I believe that is the old release date for the film. I believe, it’s been pushed back to a later date.)

To be more precise, I want to discuss my thoughts on “HOW MARVEL SHOULD INTRODUCE, CAPTAIN MARVEL!”

Awhile back, I had  stated that I felt Carol Danvers should be introduced on TV First, on “AGENTS OF SHIELD”. I felt that with their focus being on The Kree and Inhumans during their most recent run. It would have served a better vehicle to introduce a future movie franchise such as ‘Captain Marvel’

But, Things change.

Right now, Academy Award Winner BRIE LARSON is Marvel Studios Front runner for the role

image image

I for one am not arguing with her talent or her looks. I’m excited for this casting. I have not seen “THE ROOM”, which is the film that got her the Oscar. I believe she played Amy Shummer’s Sister in “TRAIN WRECK” if I’m not mistaken. But Marvel has not been wrong with its casting as of yet.. (Well.. At least not in the lead character department) and I trust they have their Carol Danvers. (Assuming Contract Negotiations go well of course)

That being said.. Here’s some ideas I have…

image

GOTG 2 is a very strong possibility. If in fact Marvel goes for a Carol Danvers cameo in this highly anticipated sequel to 2014’s smash hit, Heres some suggestions. Lets start with the least likeliest thing to happen. 1, Shes an old childhood friend of Peter Quill (Cris Pratt) and shows up in a Flashback sequence. Either as a mention or a full onscreen presence. 2. She’s a Human captive of an alien race and the Guardians free her during the events o the main plot. Which could help bring the Guardians to Earth. 3. She’s The Nova Corps newest Recruit..

image

This one has been strongly suggested on most news sites, since Brie Larson’s Pre-Casting, and some mumbling that she could be brought into GOTG Vol2! However.. I’m not a fan of this one. Because it completely strips away everything that is Carol/Captain Marvel. Although the films can’t always be comic book accurate when it comes to some things.. It would be, on the other hand, be wrong for such a change to occur to this character.

However.. Mixing it with option 2 could work. Being a human captive of an alien race could stand for experimentation. Giving her fantastic abilities! Joining forces with the Nova Corp to help her gain control and understanding of her new powers would be feasible. It is strange though how much the Nova Corp symbol, resembles the Symbol on Captain Marvels chest..

image

Which could lead one to assume that Marvel has been planting those seeds for some time now.. Of course though.. It is highly more likely another representation of the Star on Nova’s Helmet,

image

And nothing more..

Next up, we have..

image

Staying more true to the comics with this one.. Carol Danvers is a former Air Force Pilot turned U.S Government Liason to Wakanda.. Actually secretly there to locate fugitive (SPOILERS.. 3.. 2… 1…) Winter Soldier, after the events of “Civil War”. We don’t get the Captain Marvel Transformation in this movie.. But we do get a badass intro to the Character of Carol Danvers in to the MCU.  Which could then lead to…

image

“INFINITY WAR Part 1” Why? Because Captain Marvel’s solo film follows directly after this one.. So it would be safe to assume she somehow gets her powers during the events of IW part 1, which then bleeds into her mastering her powers in her own movie.. Then coming back to kick major ass in IW part 2.

I for one am inclined to go with the Black Panther introduction of Carol Danvers, then the Captain Marvel persona coming out of Infinity War 1 and into her own movie.

I kinda hate the idea of having to do it over the course of a three movie span.. I would have preferred if they had just went along with a Captain Marvel Movie, way back in late Phase 2.. Or Early Phase 3, where she could have played a role in Civil War. But.. We can’t all have what we want.

However they decide to bring in the awesomeness that IS, CAPTAIN MARVEL..

image

I have the utmost faith that Marvel.. Will do it Right, with Respect, Class and with Justice!

Would really like to hear your thoughts.. How would you like Marvel to bring in Captain Marvel into the MCU? Let me know in the comments section. Please Like and SUBSCRIBE to the blog.. It would be greatly appreciated!

So, Until next time folks… Peace Out!

“WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN IN ‘MARVEL’s BLACK PANTHER!” (With Post “CIVIL WAR”Spoilers)

image

Hey there Ladies and Gentelnerds. Before I start.. Allow me to make something clear. This blog is strictly me speculating (don’t tell speculating nerd I’m doing this..) on what I would like to see happen in the Black Panther film coming 2017, or at least what SHOULD happen in it. ALSO! I will be spoiling events concerning BP that happened in “CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR” so be warned.. SPOILERS AHEAD!!

With the death of his father, King T’Chaka, in CIVIL WAR. T’Challa assumed the Mantle of not only King, but also the Black Panther. Displaying his fighting prowess and his abilities to a certain extent throughout the film. We also got several hints and nods to BP’s background. During an exchange with Cap and Falcon, He explains that the Black Panther has been a protector of Wakanda for Generations. A mantle passed down from warrior to warrior, and since “Bucky” was responsible for his Fathers death.. It is now his time to be The Panther.. (By the end we find that Bucky was framed by Zemo) [Like I said.. SPOILERS!]

image

Basically, Marvel gave us BP’s origin in a matter of minutes stretched out over the course of the film. So, for his standalone outing.. An origin story is out of the question. In fact, the movie can pick up right after the events of Civil War. Here’s how I think certain things should go..

image

Andy Serkis MUST return as Ulysses Klaw.. For those of you who may not recall. He’s Been Black Panthers main enemy through his early comic book run. He was also the guy that had that massive amount of Vibranium that he stole from Wakanda, and Ultron bought from him before chopping his arm off after the deal. But he could be one of Two villains! (Probably! More on that in a moment..)

In Civil War, We got our first taste of the ‘Dora Meljie’

image

A clan of elite woman warriors tasked to protect the royal family of Wakanda. I would LOVE to see Michonne herself, Danai Gurira

image

As either the Leader of the Dora Meljie, or a Love interest, or perhaps close friend/confidant to Chadwick’s T’Challa. (Preferably Both would be great in my book. She has the talent and the skill to carry such a role. Although I would hope she and or her character would not end up another Lady Sif.

SHURI! T’Challa’s little sister, (and one time Black Panther) has to be in this film,

image

And I would like to see, Lupita N’yongo take that role. She has the youth and sheer acting talent to pull off a pretty badass Shuri.

image

Sticking with the Family tree..

image

Sophie Okonedo as The Queen of Wakanda. Something about this actress just screams Royalty to me. She’s beautiful and damn talented. Granted, to play T’Challa’s mom, they would have to age her up abit with make-up or visual effects. But she can really pull it off.

The movie must also show how the (relatively) young T’Challa must coope with being a King of A Nation,

image image

To tie these aspects of Nation, Family and Villains together.. Allow me a moment to go a little radical..

image

Wesley Snipes can be a number of roles in the Black Panther film, in my humble opinion. 1) In a quick flashback, as a young T’Chaka, before T’Challa’s birth. 2) Rival Tribe Leader, Or.. Probably a Uncle.. Jealous of T’Challa’s sudden rise to the throne. (Bare with me on this theory) If you remember in AGE OF ULTRON, Ulysses Klaw  was captured and BRANDED as a thief on the back of his neck.. And yet “somehow” he still manages to get away with a whole payload of Vibranium?!?.. (Sounds fishy to me..) perhaps “Someone” on the inside assisted Klaw with his escape and subsequent payoff of the rare metal. Que Wesley’s character, maybe?!? Yes, the evil Uncle angle is cliche at best. But Wesley is the typenpf actor who could carry it and make it work. Then, once all is said and done, Panther can have the final battle with Klaw at the end.

Lastly.. Don’t change the costume.. It’s perfect as is. If its truly necessary.. Just add a cloak and some gold accents, and that’s enough..
