“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!

SPECIAL EDITION: My Thoughts On.. “SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017” prt. 1

Greetings ladies and Gentelnerds, and welcome to a very special edition of “MY THOUGHTS ON..” that little article i do from time to time expressing my various thoughts and, sometimes, speculations on certain topics.

This series will focus on the news and stories that cane out this past San Diego Comic Con International 2017. Instead of a straight forward review on the event as a whole. I decided to break it up into parts to focus on a single topic at one time.

This first part i want to talk about the freshest thing on my mind at the moment, and that is..

It was a pretty quick presentation by Kevin Fiege, with not much pizzazz put into it. The film is very much in its early stages. But we did get very cool concept art reveals. Such as,

THE SUIT:

With a much clearer look at what Brie Larson would look like in the suit and what the suit would look like. Its very much a piece for piece recreation of the suit Carol Danvers wears in the comics today, without the scarf tied around the waist. It looks like it would be a beautiful thing to see on screen

THE “PLOT”(?)

Honestly. We don’t know a damn thing about the actual plot. But what Fiege DID say, was that Captain Marvel will take place during the 90’s. Well before the events of the first IRON MAN. And co-starring with Larson will be her ‘KONG’ co star, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury

(Speculation mode: activate)

Perhaps we will see just exactly how Fury lost his eye, 

‘Them ain’t no normal scars there broski!’

Also! Since this film will take place in the 90’s. Perhaps we will get a nice cameo of (Now Former) Head of S.H.I.E.L.D (Now Former) Hydra Operative- Donald Pierce?

Played Masterfully by Robert Redford in “CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER”

It would be really cool and would tie in to the rest of the already established universe. What’s also a plus, is that they wont have to use that fancy reverse ageing tech on Sam Jackson, brother hasn’t aged since “The Negotiator”

THE VILLAINS:

The Skrulls!!! 

Hell fucking yeah!!

Probably the most comic to screen accurate translation I’ve ever seen. They look so damn bad ass! 

If we look close at the promotional art released at Comic Con, 

Carol Danvers is going to battle not only Skrulls, but also, 

Kree Sentry’s or Soldiers, if you will. 

Something i found very interesting. 

It would appear that this story would put Carol smack dab in the middle of the Kree/Skrull war! Very exciting amd very interesting. There is still so much to anticipate to come from this movie.. Casting, Directing, plot.. Im so excited. 

(BRAIN FART: what if this movie also introduces us to.. Richard Rider, aka NOVA!? 

As powerful as Captain Marvel Is.. It wouldn’t be a surprise to me if she does get a little help taking on the Kree/Skrull’s.. Its just a thought..)

Many are quick to asssume that this will mean that a Skrull ‘Secret Invasion’ story line will be Avengers 4… My thoughts on that!?… Will have to wait for another time, in another blog.

But thats all i got in me for this one! Thank you so much for reading, please leave a like. Share with your friends, your family, your mail person. Your neighbors, even that wierd guy that sits outside smoking a cigarette as he watches you take out Your trash, and then gives you that weird nod when you notice him. Leave a comment! Do you agree? Do you disagree? Do you have a furry fetish? Either way.. Leave a comment! And above all else… FOLLOW THE DAMN BLOG FOR FUCKS SAKE! 

Thank you so much for reading that extra long outro. Appreciate it.. So, 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!

“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!

“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!
