NEW TWITTER TOURNAMENT ANNOUNCEMENT!

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! 😝😝😂

BLACK MANTA

RAIDEN

And to a lot of folks surprise and my delight!

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!

How do you folks feel about the new fighter pack coming up? What are you hyped about it?

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

INTRODUCING NEW BLOG SEGMENT: “WHAT?!”

Greetings ladies and gentelnerds and welcome to a Brand New Blog Segment! 

“WHAT?!” Is the Blog Segment in which i just ask the Question.. WHAT?! in regards to a certain bit of news that may be in the atmosphere. 

Today’s Topic?..


Its been reported, Today? Was it? Anyway, these days bleed together for me.. I have no idea what day it is now.. Anywhoo!

DC and WB announced that a slate of DC Comics centric films outside the current DCEU Universe..


One of the first films in that line up.. 

A Joker Origin Film! 


Produced by the legendary Martin Scorsese, 

and directed by “The Hangover” director Todd Phillips

Its supposed to be set in the 1980’s and is to be made to look like a Taxi Driver toned film.


The only upside I see in this..

No Jared Leto

Although he is still set to appear in both Suicide Squad 2 and Gotham City Sirens.

This could be a massive success, or It could be the dumbest fucking thing for WB to try to do so soon.

Really WB? An Elseworlds set of films?!


You’ve barely been able to set up your current DCEU Universe properly!

4 films in, and the only current success you have is “WONDER WOMAN”

(I do realize i have yet done a movie review for the film.. Thats coming soon..)

Im still going go hold a wait and see mentality.. But seriously…


Until next time folks.. Peace out!

“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!

“NEWZ FLASH!: Catching Up On The Past Few Weeks Worth Of Geek News!”

Like I stated awhile back. I’ve been pretty ghost these past few weeks, so i will now attempt to give my unique view on all the shit i missed. Welcome, To The “NEWZ FLASH!”

(In no particular Order.. and keep in mind, im going based on pure memory..)

FIRST LOOK AT “THE INHUMANS” 

Marvel Studios’ long awaited attempt at bringing the ‘Real’ Inhumans to the Big Screen. We finally got our first look at the assembled cast in costume as The Royal Family. Lots of folks talked shit about it. “Bootleg X-men and “Too much leather” and “Where’s Madusa’s Hair?” are just to name a few of the comments that i saw. In my opinion. This looks fucking awesome! Madusa’s hair is obviously going to be CGI enhanced. Every one looks awesome. My only, only peev… The Attachment on Black Bolts head.. Where is it? Was that only apart if his mask? I thought that was actually apart of his head.. Maybe we will see it apart of the Royal Crown? Hope so.

MARVEL AND SONY’S SPIDEY DEAL:

Turns out the deal between Marvel and Sony Pictures has an experation date. It was revealed (to manys surprise) by a Sony Exec, that the deal would only last up to “Spider-Man 2”  Leaving many to try and calculate just how long Tom and co. Will be involved with the series. Tom is signed for a 5 picture deal (if i am not mistaken) With Civil War and the upcoming Homecoming counting for two. There is still Avengers 3&4, thats four films down, and many assuming he will appear in other marvel films later, Captain Marvel being a possiblity. That makes five and “Homecoming 2” could make six movies right there.  Now, with as much money as Sony Pictures looks to make over all these films, (even if its a small, small percentage. Moat of the money comes from their own spidey produced projects) It would be spectacularly Stupid (see what i did there?) for them to not get back to the table with Marvel and extend the deal. Which would be the most logical thing that will happen, once this initial deal is completed. 

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, NO LONGER TWO PARTER: 

Marvel Studio’s Announced that The Avemgers: Infinity War will no longer be a 2 part film, although they will still film both parts around the same time. Most likely to cut costs out of the already reported 1 billion dollar budget (If rumors are to be believed). The second part will also carry a different name. Many assuming that THE INFINITY GAUNTLET will be the name of the final film. My theory?.. Infinity war cpuld very well be pushed back to be the final film and Gauntlet would be the first one. Of course i based this on the fact that, Fiege and The Russo bros. Made it known that Thanos is the main character of the film. While our heroes would be the “side characters” persay.
BATMAN SOLO FILM RELEASE DATE..

*CRICKETS* *CRICKETS* *CRICKETS*

DEADPOOL GETS ANIMATED:

Deadpool is looking to break the 4th wall now on the small screen with an animated series scheduled for sometime next year for FXX and to be produced by Donald Glover and others.. No word as of yet on who would voice the merc with the mouth. My vote is for Nolan North. Thats a fucking no brainer right there.

TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT.. STILL LOOKS LIKE SHIT!

Not actual news.. Just humble opinion.

WONDER WOMAN:

Please God Let This Be The One!!! Again.. Not news. Just humble opinion.

Im currently racking my brain trying to remember old news. But im coming up dry.

So here’s the latest one that dropped i think yesterday..

JOSS WHEDON’S BATGIRL COULD BE ON THE FAST TRACK: 

DC/WB is really feeling itself with the positive reviews and high hopes coming out of Wonder Woman. That some are reporting that the big wigs over there are looking forward to Batgirl being the next female lead hero flick to come out, instead of David Ayers’ Githam City Sirens. Which is still in the pipeline, but never the less, Batgirl could be next in line. So… Yay!

That’s all i got folks.. Hit me up with your thoughts and let me know what i missed, maybe I’ll add it in another “Newz Flash” also, let me know if you enjoyed this format of news. 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!
