In honor of the awesomness that was Marvel’s The Defenders. I have been inspired to start a new Twitter Tournament called..

#DefendersTeamTournament 

The rules are as Follows! 

*You assemble your own team of “Defenders” thay can consist of marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse and Valiant Characters! 

* No mega power characters. They must be street level heroes. Much like the actual defenders.

*Not a major requirement. But each team memeber must represent a key role. IE: A daredevil type, a Luke Cage type, A Jessica Jones type and a Iron Fist Type. But its not mandatory. Have fun with building your team.

*Doubles will be allowed. (So be prepared to see a lot of Batmans and Daredevils..)

* Winners are determined by Favs or RT’s. Team with most votes wins! Poll system will not be used for this tournament.

*Players must submit thier teams to me. Via DM (direct message) and must send me Pics of your characters.

That should cover it. Any questions? You know where to find me.. 

BTW: here’s MY team.. See you in the tournament arena bitches! 😝😝😂

ICYMI! Here’s the awesome reveal trailer!


I. Really. Really want this fucking game now! Just for Hellboy! 

I wanted it before that.. But Hellboy?! I want this game Now!

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“IT’S ALIVE!!: ‘HELLBOY’ Set To Return With R-Rated Reboot!”

A couple of days ago, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola announced on his social media that his baby boy, Hellboy will return to theaters with a R-Rated Reboot with a new cast, crew and writing staff. Further driving in the final nail in the coffin of Del Toro’s Run on the character along with (at this point) the one true Hellboy Ron Perlman

This news comes months after Del Toro himself made this announcment..

So, the Perlman Hellboy sails off in to the sunset. (That sucks!) But! Animation should STILL be an option for all associated with the original films. 

Now, according to Mignola and Collider News, Mignola is among the writers behind the reboot. Directing will be “The Descent” Director, Neil Marshall. Even bigger news is the man who will be trying to fill the very large and impressive shoes of Ron Perlman, 

David Harbour from “Stranger Things” and many other projects.

Looking at a side by side of the two

David is 6’2. He has a good built. He is still relatively young enough to bulk up and can go the distance of multiple films. He kinda has the chin. He is a really good actor. So.. He’s no Ron Perlman… But i can dig this casting. 

The working title is “HELLBOY: RISE OF THE BLOOD WITCH” or something like that.. Again, it is a working title and no official announcment has been made. 

Lastly, the fact that the Studio and everyone involved is approaching this with a R-Rated treatment, makes this project very intriguing for me. 

Allow me to explain.

Way back when.. I had a Hellboy game for the PlayStation, 

Not the most beautiful looking game. But! The story was pretty damn dark and spooky. Very gruesome and intense. Every aspect of the game was pretty darn spooky. Lets just say i did not play this game with the light off. (I was a kid! So sue me) Pure gamers will probably get on my ass about the lousy graphics and controls, but this isnt about the gameplay itself. Im referring to the enviroment the game presented. It was fucking dark! Del Toro’s Hellboy was very light in comparison. Not as dark and twisted. This R-Rated reboot could give Hellboy a chance to really let loose and be the character Mignola had created in the first place. 

So, im hyped. Im happy Horn Head is getting another chance to grace the big screen, lets hope they do it justice and do it right. And most importantly, Make It Fun! 

What do you folks think? Are you excited for a new interpretation of Hellboy? Hit me up!

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“R.I.P: HELLBOY 3!”

It is, with a heavy heart.. That I must report. It’s official, official, Official! 
As reported by Guillermo del Toro, via Twitter..

HELLBOY 3, is officially, 100% dead!

This.. Sucks! Its not a surprise, but this sucks.

Del Toro has been going back and forth with Universal Studios for some time now, about getting Hellboy 3 greenlit. Unfortunately (as far as what has been reported and is known) Del Toro wanted too much money for the third film of the franchise.

Approximately 2oo+ million. And Toro was not looking to budge on that request. And we can not blame Universal and the other studios that could have been involved. (Heres a little history lesson) 

HELLBOY (2004) 

HELLBOY 2: THE GOLDEN ARMY (2008)

Both films.. Which I love dearly, and can watch multiple times, has not given the studio a successful financial return. Each grossing less then what they cost. Granted, DVD sales helped later on.. But Box Office Gross would have helped a lot more. We can also look at it from Toro’s POV. He has helped Universal make lots of money with his most recent works. PASIFIC RIM comes to mind. So he’s intitled to ask for some good amount of money to make his vision for the final film come to life. 

Now, perhaps Del Toro brought his asking price down (maybe) Which would have been a smart movie. However.. Its been.. 9 long years since HB2. Perhaps.. Just perhaps.. If Universal is still interested with the Property. They probably feel like they can ReBoot! They have the advantage of time to help them move away from what came before. Which seems like a more reasonable choice on their behalf..

Although, personally.. I would have loved to have seen the continuation of HB & Liz 

Probably my favorite love story in all of cinema. I would have liked to see what wpuld have happened at the very end. Would it have been a happy ending? I hope so. 

Maybe Mike Mignola and Del Toro can take the final story to the Comic Book Page?! Or perhaps and Animated Film. CGI the damn thing. Im sure that would be cheaper then a live action film. And Ron Perlman wouldnt have to do too much under the make up and stuff.. (not that he did his own stunts or anything. But you get what i mean) 

I wouldnt mind a ReBoot for Hellboy. It’s long over due. The BPRD has a massive universe in Dark Horse Comics. Mike has told so many stories. Maybe Universal should consider a small Hellboy Movie Universe. (HMU copyright and restricted by Me!)  However.. Before they do that.. Somehow, someway.. Give me HB3. Finish the story, and then.. Start from scratch. 

Those are just my thoughts and feelings on the situation. How do you folks feel? Hit me up! Comment below, follow/subscribe. Thx for reading.

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

NEW TWITTER TOURNAMENT: “THE SKWAD UP TOURNAMENT!”


I was bored one day and asked my twitter followers a simple question, and put it to a vote.. 

(TBH: I really do appreciate everyone who voted. All 10 of you. But what cracked me up was the one vote for No. I appreciate the honesty, whether it was to be funny, sarcastic or whatever. But it actually made me laugh. So thx for that!)

The idea came to me pretty quickly, so say hello to the, First Annual “SKWAD UP TOURNAMENT!” 

Clearly inspired by the recent surprise hit, “SUICIDE SQUAD” its a very simple tournament. 
RULES AND REGULATIONS: 

The Tournament will be open to 10 players. Each player will form a “Skwad”, if you will. Or Team, of 5 comic book villains. They can be from Marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse, or Manga. Mix and Match, stay in house. Whatever you want! Make a team of Power Houses or a team of Intellectual Masterminds. It’s purely up to you. This Tournament will be the first tournament that will not be reliant on Fav and RT as votes. Instead, winners will be based on the polling system.. HOWEVER!! If i can not attach pics of your teams along with the poll system… Then I will have to go back to the former voting system of FAV and RT. Just so you know.. 

Please allow me to further explain the 10 player system real quick. The 10 players will be split into two groups of 5. The fifth team will be the WildCards. Those Two teams will face off and the winner will face the winner of the main tournament. That winner.. Will be the Skwad Up Tournament Champion! Hope that makes sense..

In closing.. Hope you folks would like to join in on, whatever fun this tournament coukd be. Hope you liked this blog.. If you did.. Hit the LIKE! button.. And while your at it.. FOLLOW/SUBSCRIBE.. Thank You!

See you on the battle field!.. Peace!
