“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!

“BREAKING NEWZ!!: Marvel Studios Offers First Look At ‘AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR'”

Mere Hours ago, Marvel gave the world its first beautiful glimpse into “AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR” 

Lets take a moment and (pun intended) ‘Marvel’ at what is currently in the works.. 

OHHHHHHHH!!! That my friends is the sound of a grown man.. Moistening his undergarments to an unimaginable depth..

SorryNotSorry

Now, very quickly. What stands out to me, was that we got, was our first look at certain possible concept art work of THANOS, and how he could be appearing in the film..

At the start, we got this nice shot of a set they shot on from Day One

My guess being a possible off planet location. Or a crash site for the Milano? 

Three cast members giving us their quick thoughts on the journy they are looking forward to on this film..

Clearly from the same set. Also! want to point out.. RDJ is wearing his IRON MAN mocap suit. Pratt in his STARLORD gear.. And Mr. Holland.. In a down jacket?! We are getting a new Spidey Suit.. My hope is for the Black Costume. But most likely.. Maybe the Iron Spider Suit. Meaning hes in a special Mocap suit that shows off the design that the suit will look like. 

But honestly.. Just seeing these three guys together on the same screen was oh-so Nerdgasmic! 

NOW! Probably the BIGGEST concept Art Work that was shown, was of Rocket Racoon side by side with THOR!..

EPIC!!! 

BUT!.. Anyone else notice something funny about this pic? Anyone? Lets take a closer look..

Still dont see it?.. Lets zoom in just a bit closer shall we..

THAT! My friends.. is NOT Mjlnor! So, possible Spoiler Alert!  Thor will Not get Mjlnor Back by the end of ‘RAGNOROK’ Now, thats just pure speculation on my part. And if im not mistaken, i think his loss of Mjlnor in Ragnorok is a plot point in the movie itself. I think that was announced in an official synopsis for Thor:Ragnorok awhile back. But!.. Just judging from this pic.. I dont think he hets it back. I think Thor is gonna be wielding an Axe in Infinity War. 

So.. What are you folks thinking? Has this nice little inside look into Infinity War increased your Hype for this movie? What did you get out of this video package? Hit me up! Comment Below! Subscribe and Follow! 

Thx for reading folks, Until next time.. Peace Out!

“A NEW HOPE… FOR THE STAR WARS MOVIE UNIVERSE”

After watching the first installment in the ‘Star Wars Story’ films, “ROUGE ONE”, and seeing how fantastic it was. I find myself very excited for the non saga films. 

For those of you who may not know what i mean by ‘non saga’. It is a term used for the SW movies that are not following the main Episode timeline. IE: Return of The Jedi, Force Awakens, and The as of yet untitled Episode 8 due out next year. Those are the saga centric SW films, and movies like Rouge One are not.. There is, however another phrase or word used for those movies.. But it escapes me at the moment.. Its not extended universe.. Ah shit! I cant think of it right now. But for now ill just refer to them as Non Saga Films or (NSF). 

I believe there is a total of  three NSF in the pipeline. Rouge One being the first. Most of them are just Rumord projects like… 
THE BOBA FETT MOVIE 

OBI WAN KENOBI (possible trilogy)

And there is one film that has been made official.. 

THE HAN SOLO (Adventures?) 

Telling the story of a young Han Solo. How he met Chewbacca and how he got The Millenium Falcon from Lando. A cast has already been settled. Most notable, we have a Han, a Lando, a female lead and Khalessi herself Emily Clarke has recently joined the lineup in an unspecified role.. We may even get some Jabba The Hut action in there as well. So all signs are pointing to success for that movie. 

What i Do want to discuss here, very quickly, is.. How Promising the future looks for the NSF, thanks to Rouge One. 

If the other films are half as good and inovative as Rouge One is.. Then i think we can look forward to a whole lot of great movies in the coming future. 

This is indeed new territory for Star Wars and Lucasfilm. Providing new and original content on a yearly or bi-yearly basis. Disney, on the other hand is used to this. Pixar and Marvel Studios being prime examples. Which leaves Lucasfilm in good hands. Especially, in the hands of Kathleen Kennedy. (The Kevin Fiege of the Star Wars universe) She has been behind Star Wars since Empire Strikes Back?!? (if im not mistaken… FACT CHECK BREAK…. Please Stand By:…

NOPE! Shes been involved since Force Awakens. And thats not a Bad start. HOWEVER! She has been involved with MANY movies of our childhood. From E.T to GOONIES, INDIANA JONES, and JURASSIC PARK just to name a few. Seriously. Look up her IMDB page.. Like a trip down memory lane. 

OH!! And the Non Saga Films are called ANTHOLOGY FILMS! anthology… Could not remember that before. 

Did you know Gale Ann Herd, Executive Producer of The Walking Dead, was a producer of the Terminator movies since 1984?… Wait.. Im getting off subject.

Anyhoo.. Rouge One, Han Solo, and maybe Obi Wan, are literal trial runs with this Extended Star Wars ‘Anthology’ Universe. And I for one, am supee hyped.. But may i say.. Forget about Boba Fett.. GIVE US A DARTH VADER MOVIE!! 

If you’ve seen Rouge One.. You understand WHY we need and deserve a Darth Vader stand alone movie! 

I think I’ve droned on long enough.. 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“WHY 20TH CENTURY FOX, NEEDS TO CUT A DEAL WITH MARVEL STUDIOS!”

Yes.. I said NEEDS TO! This may come as a shock to some of you, ‘Loyal Readers’ as to that i was against The Marvel/Sony Spider-Man deal. I felt that, after the train wreck that was AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Marvel should have let Spidey die at Sony and then when the contract expired, Spidey would just end up back at Marvel with no cost at all. 
When the Sony/Marvel deal was announced I had the feeling that Marvel was helping Sony keep something that rightfully belonged to Them. It was upsetting… THEN, CIVIL WAR happened.. 

And I’ve grown up since then. Or at least, I’ve grown some sense. 
So now 20TH Century Fox is up shits creek with thier X-Men property and are currently considering a full series Reboot. Gut, fanboy instinct is to say, Give Them Back To Marvel! But.. The grown up, more knowledgeable fanboy says..

Marvel has a whole lot on its plate. Phase 3 is nearing its end and Phase 4 is still up in the air at this point. FOX, is not looking to part ways with a franchise thats garnered them so many millions of dollars over the years. They already lost STAR WARS. I dont think they want to give up on this property. 

That being said.. If, indeed, Fox wants to hold on to The X-Men and its characters. They should. No. They Need, to consider a deal with Marvel Studios, to help them right thier ship and get on track. Whether its a trade of characters or property’s (ala Fantastic Four and related Characters *COUGH* silver surfer and galactus*COUGH COUGH*) 

In order to insure a more bankable franchise. 

FOX Needs to find someone who can guide the X-UNIVERSE in the right direction. Kevin Fiege is clearly the right choice. But he too has a lot on his plate.. And i firmly believe that Simon Kinberg 

IS NOT the man for the job! 
Perhaps, once Feige feels that Sony is going in the right direction and can handle the Universe that Marvel has brought Spider-Man into, on its own. Then maybe he can help Fox guide the X-Men later on down the line. 

What Fox lacks in its X-Universe, is stability and continuity. Each movie is practically a stand alone film. 

IF Fox were to strike a deal with Marvel Studios in order to make a more profitable X-Men Franchise for them and a more satisfying experiance for the fans. It would be the best thing they could do. 
With yet another Franchise Reboot looming in the future.. Only time will tell what is in store for us and The X-MEN.

What do you folks think? Would it be wise for Fox to strike a similar deal with Marvel Studios like Sony, in order to save The X-Men? Please leave a comment below. Follow/Subscribe. 

So, until next time folks… Peace Out!

“TOP 10 TIMES, MARVEL/DC FILMS GOT IT WRONG: PART 1!!”

Hey there folks! It’s time for another Top 10 List! This one is gonna be a two parter, in which we look at..

“TOP 10 TIMES MARVEL/DC FILMS GOT IT WRONG!” Part 1!

In this part we tackle, MARVEL FILMS.. (Note: Not just Marvel Studios Proper, but also Marvel/Fox, Marvel/Sony, Marvel/Universal, and Marvel/Lionsgate) Now lets get started..

10: IDRIS ELBA as HEIMDELL(THOR Series)

image

Idris Elba is by far the most talented actor of the past decade.. AND he’s British! And the best role Marvel could give him was, Heimdell?!? He could have been Blade, Luke Cage,  or at least an important Cast member of the upcoming Black Panther movie.  I love Heimdell and Idris’s performance.. But his talents are a bit waisted in the character.

9. BLADE: TRINITY

image

A disappointing finale to a badass trilogy. Blade: Trinity had all the right things going for it. The cast, the story, and it followed such a great Sequel in Blade 2. But the presentation fell a little flat, and the ending was.. Bleh!

8. GALACTUS CLOUD (FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER)

image

The. Fucking. Cloud!! Who’s fucking bright idea was that?! Dumb fucks! The Two most popular Cosmic Characters in all of comics, and you make one second Fidel to Dr. Doom and the other a giant fucking gas cloud in space! Give Surfer and Galactus back to Marvel!!

7. ANG LEE’s HULK:

image

Our very first Hulk movie with a true Giant Green monster.. And it’s a.. Uhm..Independant Drama? Or something like that.. The tone of the film was way off for a movie about a Green Rage Monster. It will always hold a place in my heart, but it was so very wrong. Everything  from Plot, characterization, direction.. It was bad.

6. DEADPOOL (X-Men Origins: Wolverine)

image

I have no words for this.. This.. Travisty!

5. THE SYMBIOT SAGA (Spider-Man 3)

image

Studio interference can be the blame for this attempt at bringing everyone’s favorite Symbiot, Venom, to the big screen in such a poor fashion. The film was already ment to be focused on Sandman and Spider-Man’s story arc. Eddie Brock and Venom were to be introduced and saved for the possible 4th installment. But the studio wanted Venom now, so by the third act, everything was completley packed and jumbled and out of place.

4. NICOLAS CAGE And GHOST RIDER:

image

I am a huge fan of the Ghost Rider character.. I.. Liked the first GR movie. The Second was.. Ok. I mostly liked the Look of Ghost Rider in the second one. And Nic Cage will always be among my favorite actors. BUT! He should not have been Johnny Blaze. The Story should not have been Johnny Blaze. It should have been about Dan Ketch’s Ghost Rider, in my opinion. The first film was very uneven and for some reason, it tried to be a western style film.. Why?!?

3. THE MANDARIN (Iron Man 3):

image

Why the fuck would ANYONE Agree to let Shane Black turn the Mandarin into a Joke!? Please tell me Kevin Feige was out of the office when that happened.. Cause if he was the one that gave the “OK” Someone needs to check what’s in his cup of coffee.. Because it was Stupid!! The trailers made it look like The Mandrain was our big bad, we were gonna get our childhood iron man villain on the big screen for the first time ever… And he’s some stupid  fucking British guy they hired to portray Mandrain. Bad move Marvel.. Dick Move Marvel!

2. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2:

image

The first one was a waste of time.. For me.. So part 2 didn’t have much going for it. A story that was all over the place. Plot points that were stupid. Over stuffed with crap that didnt need to be in it. Actors had no chemistry. The only good part.. Was Gwen Stacy’s death.. That was the only thing they did right.

1.HOWARD THE DUCK:

image

Nuff said! Seriously.. Nuff said..

Thats it for this part.. Stay Tuned for Part 2! “TOP 10 TIMES MARVEL/DC FILMS GOT IT WRONG!” Where we go after DC FILMS!

“WHO SHOULD BE WB/DC’s ‘KEVIN FEIGE'”

Hey there, ladies and gentelnerds. Welcome back. Today I wanna discuss something that really piqued my interest the moment I heard it..

Not too long ago, I was watching “NERDIST NEWS with Jessica Chobot” and she was discussing the topic of who should really be DC/WB’s DCECU ‘Kevin Feige’ (Check out the video below)

A person(s) who knows how to steer a number of productions and tell a cohesive story, AND can put the right talent behind the right project!

ZACK SNYDER.. Is not that man!

image

David S. Goyer?..

image

FUCK NO!! JUST. NO!!

And Chris Nolan says he’s Done with the Superhero Genre.. (Until they back up that Money Truck in to his driveway) So he’s pretty much out of the question..

SO! Who should WB/DC Chairman/Executive Kevin Tsujihara image

Choose to be his ‘Kevin Feige’?!

Possibly, Someone(s) Who have history with the company?..image

Perhaps, Someone(s) Who Know the material?..image

Maybe, Someone(s) Who have been in the business long enough to know how to organize a story, and know how to properly use Talent!?..

image

Or Perhaps, Someone(s) Who are genuinely TALENTED!?.. image

HMMM.. Who!?.. Who! should be overlooking The DCECU?!.. WHO!!!??

HEY! How about THESE GUYS!? image

BRUCE TIMM and PAUL DINI! If you doubt these guys have what it takes to make the DCECU Phenomenal.. Just hold on a sec while I unzip this bag and…

image image image image image

WAM! BAM! THANK YOU MAME!

Timm and Dini KNOW DC, Inside and out! These shows are just to name a few. This is not including the work they’ve done on the Animated Films, The Games, The Shorts, Hell! Even the comics! They should get the Job based off of their work On JUSTICE LEAGUE/JL UNLIMITED alone! They know how these characters work. They know how they think, how they feel. They know everything about these characters.. The only people that could know more are the people who write the comics!

I’m not saying Timm and Dini can do it on their own. That’s the beauty about these guys.. They know how to work with a team! With Geoff Johns and many others working to make the DCECU, Timm and Dini would be the right Captains to Guide the ship. And Captains are just as good as the crew they have.

SO, GET OFF YOUR ASS! Mr. Tsugihara! And Get Bruce Timm and Paul Dini into those Executive Chairs and watch how they make Magic!

Heres that video I promised.. From NERDIST NEWS! Check it out, and let me know what you Folks think!

So, Until Next Time Folks… Peace Out!
