“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.. 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!

“SO, IS IT A RE_REBOOT OR A RE-RE-REBOOT?!: MAKING SENSE OF THE FUTURE OF THE X-MEN MOVIES!”

Can anyone actually make sense of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men Franchise? Not sure.. But I’ll give it a shot. Lets take a look at it, step by step. 

Everything was hunky-dory at the start,

X-MEN: in the Pre-Marvel Studios Era. This was the best we could ever hope for. And it was indeed really good. Things were really looking up. 

X2:X-MEN UNITED: It started out great. But there was a certain point where things started to shift in the other direction. 

X-MEN: THE LAST STAND: Well.. We all know what this shit was.. Although it was a fun ride.. It still sucked.. Again, we didnt know any better. 

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE: It was right around here, we realized Fox didnt give a rats shitty stinking ass about continuity! Nor quality for that matter..

Not long after that, The Mighty Marvel Machine was full steam ahead and The Avengers was on its way.. Fox (and several other companies) took notice. So they decided to Reboot the Franchise, or at least, Revive it..

X-MEN FIRST CLASS: They really did UP the quality factor for this one. Although, continuity still didnt mean a damn thing at all. But! It was still a breath of new life in to the weakening Franchise. 

With Continuty still being a major critique toward the series.. Fox said, “Hey! We just Rebooted this.. Lets Re-Reboot it again.. But call it a Re-Start, or a Re-Furbish.

DAYS OF FUTURE PAST: Was to be a merging of the First Franchise with the Second and ‘restart’ it from there, with an all new ‘Time Line’ and New ‘Continuity’.. And they did a fantastic job. Even the Returning Bryan Singer directed the hell out of it.. 

Then came.. 

APOCALYPSE: Was not complete shit like The Last Stand.. But it had some pretty serious problems. Still, even with a New Time Line to work with.. They still made really bad continuity Errors! 

Now lets fast forward to several months later.. FOX’s biggest non X-Film/X-Film was DEADPOOL. And of course they want to milk that cow for all its worth. But they also see how fans have been reacting to all the other X-Movies. They know there is still money in this franchise. 

With LOGAN coming to theaters in March of Next year.


And this being Hugh Jackmans last go as Wolverine. Fox is taking a step back and looking at what they have.. A bankable property that despreatly needs to establish a firm footing in this POST MCU World. 

Recently FOX has announced a pause on any actual ‘X-Men’ films, except for the in development spin off NEW MUTANTS. Gambit is off the table. DP2 should be ready to go in front of the cameras by January. But FOX is currently looking at a whole RE-RE- REBOOT of the entire X-Universe that they have. 

Bryan Singer says he is Done.. For good. 
FOX has also announced that Simon Kinberg is slated to be the one spearheading the future of the X-Universe.

This, being the guy who thought THIS..

Was a Great Idea! 

Kinberg has been attached to the FXU (‘Fox Xmen Universe’.. Im coining that phrase.. TM and Shit!) since The Last Stand, boasting a Writing credit on that movie. He’s been all over things ever since.. And personally.. I dont think hes the guy for the job. 

The X-Men and FOX, need to completely wipe the slate clean. If they are indeed interested in making a Real Bankable Film Franchise for not nust thier pockets, but for the fans as well.. They need to start afresh. Get rid of everyone that was involved with the past. 

Bring in New vision and a New prospective to the Franchise. Also, they need to find someone who knows these characters and respects them..

The X-Men was and still is, about Us! The outcasts and downtrodden. Though the world wishes to present that we are all in harmony and shit.. But we havent been so divided in so long.. The X-Men represented that. A community of individuals struggling to find thier place in the world, while the world shuns and rejects them. Fears them. The X-Men struggle to protect those who cant protect themselves. The X-Men is about a team, a Family. A community. Not one man or 2 friends constantly at odds. Thats where Fox fucked up. They didnt give a shit about any of that. 

The Marvel Fan in me Screams, just give it back to Marvel! But Marvel has its plate full as it is.. If Fox can not get it together on their own.. They NEED to cut a deal with Marvel.. (More on that in another Blog at another time..) 

So as of Right now.. We could be expecting another Re-Boot of the whole show.. Lets see what happens after LOGAN and DP2.

Thats all i got on this situation. Please leave a comment. Follow/Subscribe. And all that good stuff..

So, until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“THE ‘DEADPOOL 2’ DIRECTOR DEBACLE!(A LOOK AT THE CURRENT STATE OF DP2!)”

As many of you are aware. Tim Miller, director of 2016’s biggest superhero movie hit DEADPOOL, will not be returning to helm the production of DEADPOOL 2! 

According to reports and other Nerd News Sources. Tim Miller and Ryan Reynolds could not come to an agreement over what direction to take the sequel. 

Miller: Wanting to take advantage of the success of the first film and plan for a higher budget film. With a larger budget, He wanted to take the film down a more slightly serious road and make the story more grand. 

Reynolds: Felt that a Larger scale, more serious film for Deadpool, wouldnt be a Deadpool movie. 

Unable to come to an agreement. The two men decided to part ways. 

Another divide between the two, that could have been the final nail in the coffin. Was the supposed casting of CABLE 

Kyle Chandler, of Friday Night Lights fame, Was Millers choice for the character. Reynolds, DP 1 Writers AND Fox Studios themselves were not on board with this decision. And so.. That was The End!

[Personal Note: Not an expert on Kyle Chandliers acting career.. But, i think his style of drama could be an interesting mix with Ryan’s Deadpool.. But thats just me.] 

Many names are now floating around in the rumorshpere and News Sites on who could possibly replace Miller in the Directors chair. Names such as, Quentin Tarintino, Michael Vaughn, and Edger Wright and Drew Goodard just to name a few. 

Most recently, rumor has it that Reynolds and 20th Century Fox are looking at a short list of Directors, with JOHN WICK Co-director David Leitch being at the top of the list. Nothing has been finalized at the present time.

Many would also suggest that Ryan Reynolds be the one to direct the sequel, since he is so entrenched with the character. To that i say, Not a bad idea.. But not a good one either. I’ll tell you why..
Reynolds has not directed anything as of yet. So he doesnt have much experiance in that department. Also, being a director is an all encompassing job. The Director is there from start to finish. Thier pressence has to be in everything, from editing to set design to wardrobe. A responsibility that would prove veey challenging for a first time director, like Reynolds, who is also the Full Time Producer of the film and the Star of the movie itself. It would be extremely fun to see Ryan Reynolds have a seat in the directors chair on a Deadpool film, but its too much too soon. Even for him. Starring, Producing and Directing is a tall order to fill.

Thats the current state of Deadpool 2. Once further information drops, I’ll try and bring you folks as up to date as i possible can.

So, Until next time folks.. Peace Out!
