“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!

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!

“MY THOUGHTS ON.. THE DCEU: IS IT DESTINED TO FAIL?!”

Greetings, ladies and gentelnerds and welcome. 
Today I wish to discuss a question that was brought to me by a friend on twitter (@marvelzombiek) Back when i asked for ideas for my 200th blog. (clearly i saved it for a later blog and i think it comes at a good time too.) 

He asked, “Is The DCEU Doomed To Fail?” and I’ve been contemplating on that for awhile now. At first, i would have said, ‘No.’ But.. I’m not so sure about that now.

 A lot has happened, so allow me a moment to go down some details.

BVS: Dawn Of Justice: 

Was supposed to be the official kick-off of the Warner Bros. Pictures DC centered “Cinematic Universe” (I honestly hate the ‘Extended Universe’ Tag) after the successful, but criticly scrutinized ‘MAN OF STEEL’. Things didnt go according to plan. In, what looked like, an attempt to play catch up with Marvel Studios. WB shoveled in so much plot into a dull plotted movie. It was embarrassing to watch as a fan. They hoped to set up an entire universe with 1 single film. Big mistake. The film was about 2 and a half hours long and they shoved about 3 movies worth of material in to it. (for further thoughts on BvS, check out these past blogs,  https://themarvelincblog.wordpress.com/2016/04/03/what-went-wrong-with-batman-v-supermandawn-of-justice/  and https://themarvelincblog.wordpress.com/2016/04/24/how-dcwb-should-have-set-up-the-dcecu/

SUICIDE SQUAD: 

An improvment over BvS and a big risk for WB.  But still lacked a cohesive plot and suffered from poor editing. Although a much more financial success. But still got rammed up the ass without vasiline by the critics and most fans. 
THE FLASH: 

Is having the absouloute worst luck. The film has lost 3 directors. 2 screenwriters. Is currently on a full page 1 rewrite of the script and has no director at all. Its amazing the shit this project is going through.
NOW: 

Wonder Woman is still dropping in June of this year followed by 

Justice League in November. Those two films are probably WB’s last grasp at making this Movie Universe have continued life. I hope and Pray, WW is going to be awesome. I cant be anymore excited. Justice League.. Is yet another Zack Snyder directed film.. Fingers crossed is all i have to say about that.
Furthermore.. As I am putting this article together.. So much more has come to light from WB and the DCEU. 

BATFLECK:

Has decided not to direct the upcoming Solo batman film. One that he himself has co-written and is executive producing. Its also being reported that He is looking to negotiate out of his contract with WB and no longer be the Bat. So lets see What happens with that.
SUICIDE SQUAD 2: 

WB is looking for a director for the sequal, now that David Ayer has decided to turn his attention to 

Gotham City Sirens (IF that even still happens) On that short list of Directors they are courting, Mel Gibson is one of those people.. (More on that in a later blog.)
Look. It is not DC’s fault. It’s Warner Bros. Fault. For soooo many years.. Decades even. They have sat on the thier DC property as if it was nothing but a small cash cow that they can dip into every couple of years or so, once in a blue moon. Superman and Batman being their get rich quick guys. “Put 40-50 mil into this movie. Get 200+ back in return.” They dont give a flying fuck about anything else..

Until they saw the potential of Billions these “Comic Book Movies” could make, once Marvel studios started doing their thing. 

WB executive: “Hey Disney’s making billions over these picture book movies. Lets buy the rights to some of these things and do the same.”

WB lower executive: “Hey, we own a bunch of these things already!”

“WB Executive: “Since when?!”

WB lower exec: “the 1960’s” 

WB Exce: “Really? Well then.. Get to it! Just do what they’re doing” 

It’s sad really. Warner Bros. Is a fantastic film company. They crank out awesome movies, every year.. But they care about money. They care about awards. They care about profit. If it makes them money, and gets them Oscars and increases revenues.. To hell with everything else. WB’s doesnt care about building a universe. Or what it takes to do that. 

The mistakes they’ve made have been because everything they have done thus far has been in reaction to something else.

Marvel phase 1- Man of Steel

Marvel phase 2- BvS

Guatdians of the galaxy- Suicide Squad

Fans loved Wonder Woman in BvS- make a WW movie.

Fans liked Harley Quinn- give her a stand alone movie.

Batman was awesome in BvS- Push back certain release dates and work in a Batman movie.

All reactionary. They didnt plan any of this ahead of time. Cause they dont really care. As long, as it makes money. 

WB despreatly needs to find the right people to run this show.. And make DC Studios a reality. Do what disney does. “Oh, you need x amount of money for this? Ok. Have fun!” and let DC do what it CAN do best. 

Dont be like Marvel. Marvel has always been known for interconnectivity with its stories for many years. Its what they do best. DC.. Has always been about character and Story. Not universe’s and connectivity. It was always about the stories that made their books stand out from Marvel.

Thats what thier movies needed to do. Have their franchises establish themseleves and then later, if the story was right.. Bring them all together. 

That opportunity has gone and passed. As much as i would like them to just go back to the drawing board.. Its probably too late.. 

“Is the DCEU doomed to fail?”..

Maybe.. Maybe not. Its gonna be a hard road ahead for us fans.. But in order for The DCEU to survive and be successful.. WB needs to.. Backs The Fuck Off!! And find someone or a group of people that can set it all together before its too late.

Look, thats all i got folks.. I hope things work out. But thats my answer. I cant say its doomed or destined to fail.. But as long as WB is involved.. It just might Need to, in order for something to change for the better.

Let me know what you folks think. 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!
