“ICYMI: FIRST LOOK AT MARVEL’S “BLACK PANTHER” AND NEW POSTER!”

Greetings! Ladies and Gentelnerds,

Early yesterday afternoon Marvel and Marvel Studios released the first official poster (and official release date) for next years…

Feb 16, 2018 The King Takes his throne.

With the drop of the poster, word was put out that a teaser trailer would drop later that night.

So, during some sporting event of non importance.. This!.. Awesome tease for the film was released… In Case You Missed It.. Here you go..

Wakanda looks beautiful. And just by looking at most of the promotional concept art of the film, 

And looking at the trailer.. This is going to be a beautiful looking movie. I think Black Panther is going to leave a lasting mark on the MCU.

Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER, starring Chadwick Boesman opens next year, Feb 16. 

I for one am so fucking hyped!! This was an excellent teaser! What did you folks think? Leave a comment below!

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!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEW: Marvel’s “GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2”

Hello there ladies and gentelnerds! Long time no see. I gots lots of catching up to do seeing as to that I’ve been pretty ghost.. So why dont we start with a brand new edition of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!” todays movie?.. 

“GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol 2”

THE STORY: Its been a few months since the first film and the gang are Guardians for Hire. After a job for an alien race known as The Sovereign and their leader Ayiasha.

goes sideways, The team find themselves on the run. With a little help from the Mysterious EGO, claiming to be Star Lords father. The team discovers just what it actually means to be Family! And that its not only blood that can bind people together.

The story in itself, honestly? Isn’t the strongest thing about the movie. Its what happens within the story that propels everything forward. Yondu’s story had much more going on, yet was not the main focus. The Father-Son story between Ego and Peter was.. I dont want to say forced, but it was rushed at some points and it wasn’t very strong. Kurt and Chris were excellent and did a great job with what they were given. It just wasn’t the strongest part of the film. The backbone and heart of the movie was the characters. You can tell it was the characters that James Gunn cared for and has a tremendous amount of respect for. So the main plot suffered for that fact just a bit.

THE CAST:

Fantastic! Wonderful! A true treat. Everyone was on point. Batista was a delight. They gave him so much more to work with and he ran with it. Micheal Rooker’s Yondu 

has become probably my favorite character of the film, only second to of course..

BABY GROOT! My god he was so damn adorable. He stole my heart and every scene he appeared in. 

Sylvester Stallone’s cameo (possible spoiler alert!) as… 

Starhawk, was, surprisingly delightful. He could have easily mailed in a performance.. But he didn’t. He acted. He put his heart into it, and i really appreciate it! I would love to see him continue apperaing in the Cosmic MCU. 

Kurt Russel’s EGO

 was really cool. He played the role as true to character as they could make him. I really cant go too much further in to Ego without spoiling anything. But, Kurt was great. 

Ayiasha of The Sovereign.. 

Too much to say that would border on being a spoiler. But she was very interesting. And i wonder if we will ever see her again. I would be interested in her return.

THE POSITIVES:

The Cast. Baby Groot. Yondu. The Cameos. Oh god! That Stan Lee cameo was fucking epic! I honestly can’t go in to it here.. But oh yeah… I will be digging deep in to that scene. The comedy was top tier. Dave Batista’s Drax was a comedic highlight. The deep cosmic cuts. The 5 or 4 after credits scenes were the best.

THE NEGATIVES: A surprisingly weak plot. The 2nd and 3rd acts was poorly rushed. The soundtrack, Awesome Mix Vol.2 isnt as strong (at least for me) as Vol.1. Non of the tracks stuck with me as much as the first ones did. But that could just be me. The movie would have benefited more from a longer run time.

OVERALL: Another Marvel Studios Masterwork. I cant say its better then the first film, but it can stand shoulder to shoulder with the first film. Its great. In comparison with other Marvel sequels, IE: Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3 and Avengers 2. Its better then all of those. Its a strong sequel. Not as strong as Winter Soldier, but its a great sequel. A Must See for everyone!! 

I score “GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2” 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟💫 8 and 1/2 stars. 

What did you folks think of GOTG2? Hit me up! Comment below, leave a like and a follow. Thx for reading folks.

Until next time.. Peace Out!

THIS JUST IN! Get Ready To Ragna-Rock And Roll With Our First Offical Tease Of “THOR: RAGNAROK”

TGIMM! Thank God It’s Marvel Monday!

Earlier this afternoon (eastern satndard time) Marvel Studios and Disney released our first official teaser trailer for the upcoming “THOR:RAGNAROK” and a new Movie Poster 

in case you missed it, or haven’t seen it yet.. Here you go, 


Oh My God! How epic was that?! 

Hela! She looks absolutely badass! 

Gladiator Hulk looks straight out of the comics! (side note: The cgi doesnt look 100%. Could just be me.. It looks 85-90%. But this is the first teaser and the movie doesnt come out for another, 6-7 Months. Plenty of time to clean it up) 

Im stoked. So fucking hyped for this movie. I want it now! 

Thor: Ragnarok opens Novemeber 3, 2017. 

ICYMI: “JOSS WEADON Possibly directing DCEU BATGIRL Film”

Revealed a couple of days ago, Joss Weadon and the folks at DC/WB are in talks for the acclaimed director to Direct, write and produce a stand alone BATGIRL film.

This bods well for the future of the DC (sigh) ‘Extended’ Universe. Joss is a master behind the camera. A skilled storyteller. He knows, i mean, KNOWS how to translate strong female characters on the screen. 
Buffy: The Vampire Slayer being a prime example.

And other characters that appeared in the Buffy Spin off ANGEL. And the Series FIREFLY,

And its follow up film SERENITY. 

Lets not also forgot his amazing controbutions to the MCU. 

The man knows what he is doing. If WB is smart, they will let the man do what he can do and only interject when its absolutely necessary. 

But! Keep in mind folks.. Although sites like IMDB has him listed as working on Batgirl.. Nothing is final! 

Niether WB/DC nor Wedon himself has confirmed or denied such talks. Although we know those talks are happening. However, we dont have a confirmed word from anyone that He IS doing it. 

So, fingers crossed and a deal can be made. And lets hope Joss can work his magic for the DCEU and bring Batgirl to life! 

What are your thoughts folks? Is Joss your man for the job? Comment below. Plz leave a like, and a follow! 

Until next time.. Peace Out!

NETFLIX AND CHILL: Binge Watching ‘Marvel’s: IRON FIST’ (Season 1 Review) 

Greetings Ladies and Gentelnerds! Welcome to a new instalment of “Netflix and Chill” After a very long wait, we finally got our Last Defender. 

Marvel/Netflix launched “IRON FIST” This week and I’ve just completed my 3 day bingefest. (I do have a job so.. Thats how i binge. 3 episode’s a night got it done.) 

THE STORY: After being thought long dead, Danny Rand returns to his Home in New York and his Buisness, ‘Rand Enterprise’. Now a skilled master of Kung Fu and the Newly minted Iron Fist, Danny must battle the evil Hand that infiltrated his families company from the inside. 

The Story is not, oddly enough, the strongest thing about this show. Yet, somehow, everyone made it work. The characters and the actors that portrayed them, made it all work. Most of the Subplots helped make things a little more interesting. For example, While Danny was trying to sue for the rights to his company, Colleen’s cage fighting story was more intresting and intriguing. The storytelling had its ups and downs. Not completely solid. But there are several moments that keep you glued in for the next episode. 

THE CAST: A great cast! Seriously. The cast was great. Everyone played thier parts peefectly. Characters such as Ward and Joy Mechum could have easily been a pair of Karen Page’s. Characters that could have easily been annoying and uninteresting, But the actors made them work and i actually gave a crap about them. Jennifer Hendwick’s Colleen Wing was a saving grace for most of the episodes. Rosario Dawson’s Claire aka Night Nurse.. Pointless. But, whatever! She was necessary in the fact that they needed to tie everything together. But overall, a great and solod cast.

THE POSITIVES: 

Unlike the other Netflix shows, Iron Fist’s story is very linear and straight forward. It doesnt take a break for any actual unnecessary plot detours. The subplots tie in with the main story nicely. Again, The Colleen Wing character was a huge bright spot for the show. The action was great and well choreographed. Finn Jones was a great Danny Rand. 

THE NEGATIVES: 

The actual ‘Iron Fist’ is way too under utilised. When you calim to be as skilled as Danny Does, You should be smart enough to use the fist any and at all times. (Mental Note: This version of Danny Rand is still a noob at the whole, Being an ‘Iron Fist’ thing, that one can let the show slide for the way the character behaves and fights.) Speaking of the Iron Fist, he should have been able to use more then the one hand. Granted, he himself claims he had not completed his training with the Iron Fist. So he is still unaware of all that he can do with it. But its something that they should have included in the story. The Fights, as well choreographed as they were, The editing did not help. At this point.. Daredevil seems like a more capable fighter then Danny Rand. The directing and editing of the fights took too much away from what was going on. I feel, personally, The people behind Iron Fist should have contacted or used the same fight choreographers of Daredevil season 2 in combination with their own team, to put together much better Fights. They put too much time and focus on the “I am Danny Rand” part of the story. That ‘Mystery’ could have been solved in a lot less episodes. They put too much time into that. Not giving us a better look in to Danny’s life in Kunn’ Lun with Proper flashbacks was a missed opprotunity. Claire Temple.. Two too many episodes. No offence, i understand her importance to the Defenders, but she was there for too long in my opinion.

(THEORY: Claire will be to THE DEFENDERS, what Agent Coulson was to THE AVENGERS. Thats right! Im calling it from now. That one thread that tied all the Netflix shows and the Defenders together. Will die and that will be the catalyst that really unites the Defenders together.. There.. I said it!) 

Final Negative. Iron Fist suffers as the others did.. A somewhat weak end. Non of the shows have had a strong close to the end of thier season like Daredevil season 1 did. DD season 2, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist all suffer from weak to unimpressive finishes. Despite having such a great run.

OVERALL: Marvel/Netflix do it again. Solid performances and a solid, straight forward storyline and great action helps Iron Fist push it to being one of the best shows in the lot. Nothing will ever top DD seasons 1&2. But Iron Fist comes pretty close. I give MARVEL’S IRON FIST season 1 a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟💫 71/2 out of 10. A Must Binge!  

Have you folks completed your viewing of Iron Fist? What are your thoughts?

Until Next time folks.. Peace out!
