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!
