MY THOUGHTS ON.. “THE MOUSE AND THE FOX”

As reported yesterday by CNBC, Disney and 21st Century Fox are very close to nearing a deal worth approximately $60 billion dollars. 

For those not fully in the know, or with passing knowledge of the situation. Its not Disney taking over Fox as a studio. But! What this means, is that many of 20th/21st Century Fox’s properties are up for sale. 

Us Comic Book/Movie Fans quickly jump to Fantastic 4 and The X-Men 

Joining in the MCU.

But it goes much deeper then that.

STAR WARS: THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY

Including the original ’77, ’80 and ’83 theatrical cuts..

Versions only belonging to 20th Century Fox. Even after Disney’s acquisition of LucasFilm, the original versions of the trilogy belonged to Fox and Fox alone. 

This deal also includes films like PLANET OF THE APES, The ALIEN Movies, and several other established franchises and Classics. 

Also the bulk of Fox’s Television Division, like The Simpson’s, M.A.S.H, The FX and FXX channel and a 30% share of HULU is included. 

This deal would greatly change the landscape of Films and Television. So much content under a single umbrella is almost unheard of.

Gaining these titles would also help Disney and there upcoming streaming service and give them so much material to use. 

The question some people ask is. Will there even be a 20th Century Fox Company after this deal is done?! 

I think there will be! This would not be the first time Disney absorbed a film studio. The only difference is that this is a major, huge studio. But, I believe Disney, would just have a Disney and Fox appointed team of exacutives to run 20th or 21st Century Fox film studio and let them do what they’ve been doing all these years.. Make Movies. Produce Content. Only that Disney would be making the real profit. 

In regards to X-men and F4…

The deal is done already.. We just dont know it yet.

Hollywood moves at.. An incredible speed. They are litterally 5 years ahead of us.

Kevin Feige, in an interview, stated that after AVENGERS 4(aka Infinity Gauntlet) They have 20 more films in the planning stages as we speak. 20 MORE Films! 

I’d bet my bottom dollar that Fantastic Four is in that slate of films. They’ve been leaving clues all over the place for the F4 to come in to the MCU.

I also wouldnt be surprised if Disney/Marvel left X-Men under the FOX banner. Wouldnt be surpised if they didnt either. But in this case. I think Kevin and Bob (Iger) would be satisfied with X-men under their Fox Division, only that they would have more control over what would happen in that universe. So, its a win/win situation. 

Reports say that a final announcement of a done deal wont come until early next week. But im sure the deal is done. They just have to cross some T’s dot some I’s and make the necessary arrangements of whose going to be in charge and who amd what is going to go where. In the report, it is also said that Fox chairman Rupert Murdoch’s Youngest son, will be going over to Disney to oversee the Fox Studios end of the division. While Dad and older brothers will retain control of the News and other material Murdoch and his comapny will still own outside of the entertainment stuff. Like Fox News and other Media, both television and print. 

So.. Its done. F4, X-men, Star Wars, Apes, its all in the House of Mouse now. Its only a matter of time for conformation to be announced. 

So, thats just my view on this whole thing..

It’d be fucked up i say all this, and next Monday’s Headline.. “FOX/DISNEY DEAL A NO GO!” .. wont i feel like a dick on that day.. 

Until next time folks… Peace Out!

Soon my friend… SOON!

TOP 5 LIST! “WHO IS GOING TO DIE IN “AVENGERS:INFINITY WAR” AND WHY!”

Greetings! If your just joining me just after reading my “Avengers:Infinity War” Trailer Review. You probably came for the answeres as to why i said what i said at the end of that review… 

If your just hear just because, because.. Well then… Thank You! 

Ok, im gonn a make this quick…

1. SPIDER-MAN:

“But Marvel just got him back!” you must be saying.. True! But who’s to say Marvel wont do the whole switch-aroo right then and there? “Oh! You thought we wanted Parker? Oh hell no.. We’re gonna do Morales for Homecoming 2. Why do you think we only had Tom sign a 3 picture deal?” is what marvel could be saying… 

But, in actuality.. In the leaked SDCC version of the trailer, A piece is shown with Spidey, maskless, teary eyed, looking at Tony and saying “Im sorry Tony.” 

And in this trailer we see a shot of.. 

Yeeeeaaaaghhhhh….. Pete aint walking away from this one.. Not only that..

It would explain why Tony looks like this

At the start of the Trailer.. So.. Yea!

2. VISION:

Soon as the Android gets a girlfirend.. He’s gonna die! 

Come on.. He has the mind gem! His days are numbered.. 

Should he, by some miracle, survive getting the stone pulled from his head.. He’s gonna be useless! That is where most of his powers come from, isn’t it? Granted, they never specified..  But it’s the most logical thing. 

3. CAPTAIN AMERICA: 

Beared Cap. The Nomad. For a deeper impact, Cap would be the most logical choice to be the one to fall. My theory.. 

It’ll be on the Battlefield..

On the front line.. Most likely being the last line of defence against Thanos. Putting himself between him and the Soul Stone.

4. THOR: 

This one is more of a guess. Based on the special trailers released prior to this one.. There was a shot of Thanos holding Thors head in his hand, like, in a tight grip. And Thor was screaming in pain. 

On the other hand. That moment can be in conjunction with this moment..

Perhaps, it’s wjat prompts Loki to hand over the Tesserect, in exchange for Thor’s life… Costing Loki his own life in the process..

SURPRISE ENTRY! 

5. LOKI:

He had. One job. 

Bring Thanos the Tesserect after conquering earth with the Chituari Army. Remember? 

“You will have your war, asgardian. But if you fail. If the Tesserect is kept from us. There will be no hole. No barren moon. No crevase, were He cannot find you! You think you know pain?.. He will make you beg, for something as sweet as pain..”

                                                     – The Other

So.. That just may come back to bite Loki in the ass..

Well! Those are my picks. Are they valid? What do you think? Leave a Comment. Leave a Like. Follow for more thought provoking articles like these.

Until next time folks… Peace out.

“AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR” TRAILER REVIEW!

We are a week removed from the premiere of The “AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR” Trailer.

Now, I said i was gonna post the trailer immediately after it’s drop online.. But… I just had to let it marinate all over me, all week long. 

So lets get in to it..

My God.. That was so worth the fucking wait all these long months. Granted, not the exact same as the D23 or SDCC versions. But! Epic on its own! So much was going on in this. 

LOOK! LOOK AT HIM!! 

In all his bald headed glory! Lots of folks seem pissed about that.. Dont know why tho? I mean.. Even CGI characters have the right to change their clothes. Right? 

I loved the music in this trailer. Beautiful. Really set the tone of this movie and where its going to go.

People are going to die.

Tony and Thanos are going to be the main characters i think. This is gonna be a Tony centric Avengers film.. Maybe. At least thats what it look like to me. 

The Soul Infinity Stone is in Wakanda. That should explain the massive battle. 

I really want/hope/need a scene where Thor and or the Guardians Explain the Infinity Stones to Tony and the Rest of the Avengers. Like.. Ik thats super geeky. But I still get chills from The Collector explaining the stones in the first Guardians. So, i need that moment in this movie. 

Vision is gonna learn how to look human and get some punany before he dies. So thats good for him.. Can some body explain why he has Chris Evans’ haircut? 

I LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! This trailer.. Im gonna go watch this 30 more times..

Until next time folks.. Peace out! 

OH! Vision, Spider-Man, and Captain America… And… Maybe… Thor… Are goona Die! Bye

“IT’S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!- AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR TRAILER APPROACHES”

As i write this, it is 1:00 am on tge east coast. Im sitting at work doing the over night shift, and i am eagerly awaiting the sun to rise and for the AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR trailer to finally drop.. FINALLY! 

The trailer will premiere later this morning on ABC’s GMA (Good Morning America) ABC being a disney company, so that makes sense. 

The Hype Train started early tuesday, was it? No. Monday i believe. (This over night work really fucks with your dates and times.) Anyhoo, it all started with the release of the AVENGERS photo shoot with VANITY FAIR. 

Which got many fans abuzz. Then Mark Ruffalo tweeted this little nugget https://twitter.com/MarkRuffalo/status/935235856553693184 

And then yesterday Ruffalo’s spoiler brother Tom Holland let slip the official poster.. https://twitter.com/Marvel/status/935584276049027074

And then Marvel released this beautiful Fan Appreciation Teaser trailer 

 https://twitter.com/MarvelStudios/status/935555412861919232

It is now.. 1:21 am… T-minus 6-7 hours until myself and the billions of fans around the world Nerdgasm all over themselves.

Make sure you folks have spare underwear handy.

As soon as the trailer drops. Be sure to come on back when i post it here. Thank you. 

HAPPY INFINITY DAY Folks!

NETFLIX and CHILL: ‘GoodBye DISNEY, Hello MILLARWORLD!(?)’

Sooo.. As we all have heard and well know by now. Disney has decided to pull its massive disney D!€Ω, out of Netflix and go solo with its own streaming app, at the very end of 2018. 

That means. All Disney products, Pixar, Disney Animation, ABC productions, ESPN Programing (ie: 30 for 30), Movies (live action and animated) Disney Channel Shows, everything and anything associated with that freaking Mouse is leaving Netflix and being streamed exclusively on their new (as of yet un-named) App. 

Now, what does this mean for the “Netflix Exclusive” Marvel Shows? 

Well… Although Marvel is under the Disney Banner, The contract Netflix has with Marvel and those exclusive shows lasts just a bit longer then the end of 2018.. Probably another year or so more. However, at this moment (to public knowledge) Netlfix is currently speaking with Disney on extending the contract for Marvel Brand titles, and Star Wars Titles. 

(Which makes sense, seeing that those could be the most viewed programming at the moment.) 

So for the time being, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, The Defenders, The Punisher are still going to be available on Netflix for the forseeable future. IF! No extension is granted to Netflix by disney for these properties.. Be prepared to see them slowly bleed away to the Disney App.

IN OTHER NEWZ! 

Prior to Disney’s announcement to part ways with Netflix. Netflix itself, reported thier very first outside acquisition. MILLARWORLD Publication. 

Mark Millar’s Comic Publication 

which includes the titles WANTED,

 KINGSMEN, 

KICK-ASS,

 SUPERIOR, 

EMPRESS,

 NEMESIS 

and many more.

That means, We can expect brand new original content coming To Netflix in the coming months and years. Based off of these many titles. On the flipside of that coin though..

WANTED, KINGSMEN and (probably) KICKASS are still licensed by other studios and companies.. So until those licenses run out or Netflix makes a deal for them.. We wont be seeing those exact titles anytine soon. BUT! Nemesis is one title i have been most interested in seeing come to life. Its like, What If Batman, took all those skills, all that money, and all that intelligence and became the foremost badass super criminal/terrorist the world has ever known. So, i am looking forward to that. 

That being said, it’s not all bad that Disney is leaving in another year and a half from now. Im sure both companies can still find away to do successful business together. Millarworld is a very nice and exciting consultation prize. Millar has crafted a series of wonderfully written masterworks. Very suitable for live action translations. I am very certain, that everything will turn out for the Best for everyone involved.

But! What do YOU folks think?! leave a comment. A LIKE. Subscribe/Follow! And thx so much for reading!

Until next time folks… Peace Out!

SPECIAL EDITION: “MY THOUGHTS ON.. SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017” Prt. 3

Ok folks.. Im thinking this will be the final installment in this special edition “My Thoughts On.. Sand Diego Comic Con 2017”

In this article, we’re gonna take a look at “AVENGERS:INFINITY WAR”

Well… What can be said about the Infinity War presentation?.. Not much honestly. They showed the same trailer from D23 at Comic Con. Still no official release from Marvel or Marvel Studios. Although a leaked camera phone quality version is available online. Its not bad.. But, WTF Marvel?! Whats the hold up?! 

Besides that. As I am slowly writing this article, News was announced that Brolin’s Thanos will return for the as of yet “Untitled” Avengers 4. 

Some folks still believe that perhaps Infinity War will be a one and done thing. But i honestly believe that Avengers 4, will be ‘Infinity Gauntlet’.

[SPECULATION MODE: ACTIVATED]

Infinity ‘WAR’ will be most likely the “War” for the Stones themselves. In the teaser trailer that was leaked. Thanos (spoilers) only possesses The Tesserect (space stone) Allowing him to travel from point A to point B. Im pretty sure they show a devestated Collectors vault, which Means he may also have The Ether (reality Stone). I believe there was probably a shot of a wrecked Nova Corp. So perhaps the power stone will be in play as well.. 

This whole film will be the formation of the Gauntlet.. The battle for the stones. 

By the end of it all.. Thanos will raise his completed Gauntlet and.. Then..

“To Be Continued..”

Thats how Infinity War will end. At least thats how it should end.

Well.. I think that will just about do it for this special series.. Thank you all for reading.. Please leave a like, follow, comment. 

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!
