“DAY 1 OF DISNEY’S D23 EXPO 2017!: What Caught my attention”

Hey there ladies and gentelnerds. Well, Disney’s D23 FAN EXPO 2017 is in full swing. Day 1.. Is honestly.. Probably still going? Maybe? You know, the whole “time zone” thing. East coast, West coast… Very different. Its like two separate universes. Fucking wierd. Anyhoo.. Day 1 has given us some pretty cool looks at what Disney animation has in store for us in the coming months and year(s). Also some nice glimpses into the world of Avengers: Infinity War, Thor: Ragnorak, Black Panther, a Marvel Mystery set to be revealed tomorrow and Star Wars land, and also, This Years ‘DISNEY LEGENDS’ inductee’s. 

Here’s a few things that caught my eye.

STAR WARS LAND: We got a much closer look at Disney’s Future attraction with a detailed model of a section of the theme park.

This model just amazes me. Granted you may say, “It’s just a model” But just judging from the scale of it though… This place is going to be Massive!

DISNEY LEGENDS: 

Disney honored long time Disney stars and contributers/Partners, Such as..

Mark Hamil

Carrie Fisher

Oprah

And of course.. The Man, The True Legend, 

STAN LEE, 

Who is, in fact, a modern era Walt Disney. A man who Stan looked up to, and admired and hoped to emulate. So, for me. To see him get this award… Was Very heart warming.

BLACK PANTHER/ THOR: RAGNORAK: 

Marvel Studios gave fans closer looks at the costumes of these two highly anticipated films. 

DISNEY ANIMATION:

We got our first looks at Disney’s COCO and WRECK-IT RALPH 2: RALPH WRECKS THE INTERNET. We also got news about TOY STORY 4. Jon Lasseter stepped down from the co-directors chair and has appointed co-director Josh Cooley to helm the project on his own. Details on Frozen 2 were announced as well. And most importantly, 

INCREDIBLES 2! It is on its way and the story will pick up right exactly were the first one left off. The Underminer explodes from the ground and boom! We start our new adventure. I am so stoked!

Lastly..

The Marvel Studios Mystery:

Sometime tomorrow. Marvel plans to unvail these 4 mystery statues/characters. Many believing that it could be the Fantastic Four! With many theories as to how and why. SPOILER ALERT: in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Happy reveals that Tony has sold off Avengers Tower to an unknown and unnamed buyer. Leading many to speculate that The Baxter building could be in our future and these four figures could be the new Marvel MCU Fantastic Four! And to that i say… Close, but no cigar. Although that theroy is pretty damn awesome. Its not very likely at this point in time. What IS however more likely? Since the reveal of the Thanos figure..

The shrouded figures next to him and/or behind him, could most likely be.. 

THE BLACK ORDER! 

Granted there are only Four shrouded figures. 

And there are 5 Black Order members.

My guess is.. The big one is Black Dwarf, the one to the right of the big one (our left. According to the picture) could be Black Swan or Ebony Maw. The one to the left (our right.) could be Corvus Glaive and the last one could be Proxima Midnight. That seems the most logical choice. Although, i would be off the wall thrilled and excited if The FF was back with Marvel.. That would mean Silver Surfer would be back where he belongs. But that day wont come just yet. 

SO! thats it for day 1. Lets see what day 2 has in store. Im excited. Stay tuned to this very blog site. Where, Very soon, I’ll run down a few things i hope to see come out of “SAN DIEGO COMIC CON INTERNATIONL 2017” coming next weekend. I will try to stay on point with this coverage of DISNEY’S D23 EXPO 2017. If anything catches my eye out of Day 2. We shall see..

Thank you so much for joining me, and reading my BS. I greatly appreciate it. And until next time folks.. Peace Out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS: MARVEL/SONY’S “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING”(SPOILER FREE)

Greetings Ladies and Gentelnerds! “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS” is back.. Today’s movie?..

Ok.. Here. We. Go!

THE STORY: “Several months after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York City while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man as a new threat, the Vulture, emerges.” 

I thought the story was a great story. The plot was surprisingly strong. I dont know who can get more credit when it comes to the story. Marvel or Sony. There are some elements that can point to where a Marvel idea was put in and where a Sony idea was put in. There are.. Element problems with the story (I’ll get to that later) But over all, a very good story.

THE CAST:

By far the best cast in a Spider-Man film. Ever! The two stand outs.. Tom Holland and Michael Keaton! Keaton actually was.. A god send for this film.

 If he was not in this movie, as this character.. This would have been a completley different movie. I honestly believe he was the backbone of the movie. Tom was a fantastic Peter Parker and a very good Spider-Man.

 With room to grow as that part of the character. Robert Downey jr. Was RDJ. What more can i say about him that hasn’t been said already. Morisa Tomai is a great version of Aunt May. They play up the idea of her being the ‘Hot Aunt’ very well. Zandaya

 was a bright spot every time she was on screen. The other members of the supporting cast was good.

 Very talented actors and actresses, played their parts perfectly. 

THE POSITIVES: 

Keaton. Keaton. Keaton. Keaton! I’ve never loved The Vulture, until now. He gave that character such.. Life. Such flavor. Such a soul! I rank Vulture just behind The Kingpin in the list of best Marvel Villans, 

1: Loki

2: Kingpin

3: Vulture

4:Ultron

5:Red Skull

6: Zemo

Thats my list.. 

Tom Holland..

Brilliant. Just brilliant. Couldnt have asked for a more perfect Parker. With the added benefit of his Spider-Man of being able to grow and become the best Spider-Man since Maguire. Zandaya was great. The story. The characters. Although we never got this version of The Shocker.. (Spoiler?!)

The version we did get..

Was both interesting and fun! 

Donald Glovers cameo..

Maybe a spoiler.. But heres a hint..

Very interesting. 

The use of comedy was well played. It wasn’t a full blown comedy but there was a lot of comedic moments, all of them used appropriately.

And lastly.. The Twist with Vulture..

Very, very well played. Saw it coming at the moment it was coming.. But very well done and very well executed. 

THE NEGATIVES: 

Ned made me miss Harry Osborne. Not a knock on the actor. He was good. Just did not like the character. Annoying in my opinion. Used very well at the right times. But just.. Did not sit well with me. Maybe in the sequel? Hopefully I’ll get used to him.  Flash Thompson.. Not my Flash, but.. Okay, I’ll go with it. Diversity for the sake of diversity, isn’t always the best thing in my opinion. I could appreciate the freshness of this new Flash Thompson.. Just.. Idk.. Not what im used too, not what i was hoping for. But, I’m gonna go with it. And no.. It is not because of the race of the actor nor the look of the actor. It was the characteristics and the way he was presented that didn’t grab me. He could have at least bulked up or something. Do some pushups kid.  The “Other Twist”?… Fuck You! Reminded me of the shit Nolan pulled in ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Did not appreciate that and it stunk of Sony’s handiwork. A lot of the things i didnt like, felt like things Sony shoved in. I could be wrong, I dont know what was added by whom, but it just felt like things that were not necessary, was Sony’s doing. Spider-man was soo damn clumsy! I have never seen such a clumsy version of spidey, ever, in my whole life. I hated that. He seemed more comfortable in Civil War, taking on other superheroes, then he did swinging through the city. It was weird. Granted. I understand the fact that this is a 15 year old kid, and they are trying something different and new.. But damn! It was like watching George of The Jungle “Watch out for that tree!” Lastley, he seemed.. De-powered. Did not like that. He seemed slower for no apparent reason. I saw a severe lack of Spider-Sense. Like as if he didn’t have it. Hope they change that.

OVERALL: 

The best Spider-Man film since, Spider-Man 2! A great time at the movies. A worthy addition to the MCU. A great movie. Not without its flaws, but what movie doesn’t have some of those. Also, be sure to stick around for both After credits scenes.. Totaly worth it! (😉😁)

I give “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 6/10. Absolutely Great! A must see!

Let me know your thoughts folks. What did you like, what didn’t you Like. Hit me up. Comment below. Please like and follow! Much appreciate you reading..

Until next time folks.. Peace out!

BREAKING NEWZ!!: “SONY ANNOUNCES MAJOR STAR FOR “VENOM” SOLO FILM!”

As you may have already heard. Sony has cast Venom for their stand alone film, scheduled for an October 2018 release.

As reported by COLLIDER NEWS’ John Campea (video link at the end of this article) Sony Pictures has cast TOM HARDY as Eddie Brock aka VENOM! 

This is fucking HUGE for me right now. First talk of a stand alone Venom film with out any connection to Spider-Man was a pretty big “Fuck No!” from me. Then i thought about it further after hearing of the Black Cat/ Silver Sable film, i figured.. “Ok, Maybe.. But do it right..” 

NOW.. Your telling me that you got Tom Fucking Hardy as Eddie Brock Venom?.. “FUCK YEAH BITCH!! Lets do this.” 

Granted.. This does not fully guarantee that this is going to be the greatest movie ever. They still have that hurdle of making this story work with out Spider-Man. Best of luck to them. But this right here, is a fantastic move on their part. 

“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!

MY THOUGHTS ON.. “The VENOM and BLACK CAT/SILVER SABLE Films In The Works At SONY PICTURES”

Earlier this past week Sony Pictures announced plans for a VENOM stand alone film, set to hit theaters sometime in 2018. And a possible BLACK CAT & SILVER SABLE team up film. Production and release date TBD. 

I was busy with a fan fiction (The Killing Joke:Aftermath. For those of you curious) So i didn’t have time to touch on this bit of news.. But Now I Do..

Lets start with VENOM. 

According to reports SONY has locked down the release date for October 5th, 2018 for the stand alone feature. Reports further stateing that the film will be a rated R outing, strictly seperate from the Spider-man Marvel/Sony MCU. Meaning the plan is for the movie to be a strictly SONY produced project, not jointly with Marvel Studios. Also meaning Spider-Man would not factor into any part of this story or ‘Venom-verse’ if you will. 

I am.. Slightly worried about this. I am intrigued. But worried. The comic book puriest in me says, “The Fuck kind of bull shit is this?! You cant have Venom without Spider-Man!” on the other side of that coin, the movie fan says, “It could be a HUGE mistake, but worth trying. Lets see how it goes.” 

So, I’m torn. We all know the true origin of Venom, 

Eddie Brock was (and is again) the one true Venom. He spins right out of the pages of Spider-Man. Its hard to picture one without the other. 

However, Eddie was not the only Venom. SONY could just as easily make an AGENT VENOM film..

Flash Thompson loses both his legs in battle during a war. Comes home and gets joined to the venom symbiot. That could work. Flash Thompson doesnt have to be exactly tied to Spider-Man because he’s such a secondary character. A historic and important character.. But still secondary non the less. 

 It has the slightest of chances of working. And if it does GREAT! But it also has the potential for failing miserably! Like Spider-Man 3 Venom did..

It’s 50/50 at this point. What does really kinda intrigues me though.. It will (probably) be rated R.. (probably). 
That could work! Venom is that kind of character. That means that if a sequel comes.. Carnage is not far behind..

And Carnage can not be in a live action film and be toned down to a PG/ PG13 version. He has to be full of blood and gore! And the more i think of it.. The more im sold on the idea of a separate Spider-Verse. 

Lets move on to the ladies..

BLACK CAT and SILVER SABLE!

Ones a world class thief, the other a world class mercenary for hire.. Out of these two film ideas, Venom and this one.. I am less torn on this one.. If done right.. This could be pretty darn cool. Felica Hardy is much like Flash Thompson, key character in Spider-Man history.. But completely secondary! She doesnt HAVE to be tied to Spider-Man in order for her character to shine. 

Silver Sable is such a low teir character.. They could just about do anything with her. Just as long as they stay true to certain character traits, just to apease us fans. 

I could see something along the lines of a more badass version of Rush Hour, 48 Hours, and Lethal Weapon.. But with Kick ass ladies in the drivers seat! 

If they have the right story. The right people behind it.. This could be really fucking awesome. 

Venom can go either way depending on the story and the people behind it. SS/BC could do the same, but with a lot less pressure on its shoulders as Venom does. Im interested. Im on board.. 

Lets see what you got SONY!

What do you folks think? Are you excited? Pissed? Dont give a shit? Let me know. Leave a comment. Follow/Subscribe. Thx for reading..

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!
