“MY THOUGHTS ON.. SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017: What I’m Looking For From The Big Show!”

Wasabi! Ladies and Gentelnerds! Well, Sand Diego Comic Con International 2017 has begun and is in full swing. Already, so far, we’ve gotten some cool new clips and trailers from various properties. As i write this, we are.. Entering day 3. 

Lots of great stuff has come out. Trailers and sneek peeks at stuff like,

THE DEFENDERS:

DEATH NOTE:

THE WALKING DEAD:

PACIFIC RIM 2:

THE INHUMANS:

BRIGHT:

KINGSMAN 2:

And so much more! 

BUT!! It’s now Saturday. Day 3! 

DC/WB and MARVEL STUDIOS are set to have thier presentations at the famed Hall H. So since a lot of things have already dropped before i cpuld finish this article. Im going to focus on just those two.

DC/WB:

It’s been reported that DC/WB has 2 special movie announcements set for thier Hall H Presentation. They did recently let out that SHAZAM is set to go in front of cameras by January or February of next year. And the director of Lights Out and Annabelle 2 is the director of Shazam.  If they are smart, that would not be one of those films they announce. Otherwise it would be a total waste of thier time.
My hope is that those 2 secret films are BATGIRL with an official release and shoot day and also announce thier Lead Actress for Barbra Gordon. Joss Weadon should be the one to make the announcement. And the second film should be, MAN OF STEEL 2! Its being rumored to be ready to go, but we will see. 

There are of course other things to come out of that panel. New Justice League trailer. Possible AQUAMAN footage. Casting Announcements could come as well. And perhaps news of Wonder Woman 2?! 

I’m excited for this panel!

MARVEL STUDIOS:

INFINITY WAR TRAILER!!!!

Just release it already! Geez! 

Also more news and updates for upcoming Marvel Projects. Captain Marvel’s Director, maybe? Some concept art could be cool. More Black Panther and Thor 3 footage could be dropped at the panel as well. More casting news. And lastly.. Perhaps.. The title for Avengers 4 could be dropped at the panel as well. 

Lot’s of things to look forward to tomorrow/today. I/ We’ve been waiting a long time for this day. I pray Marvel comes through. 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“THE ROCK’S ‘BLACK ADAM’ TO APPEAR IN A TWO PART ‘SHAZAM/BLACK ADAM’ FILM!”

Its been reported that WB, DC and NEW LINE CINEMA (a subsidiary film studio under Warner Bros. Pictures and holder to the film production rights to Shazam) Has announced that the, looonnnggg awaited and equally long discussed Shazam/Black Adam film, Starring Dwayne ‘THE ROCK’ Johnson as Black Adam, will be made into a Two Part Movie. 

This news makes one speculate on wheather if they will in fact lead with the Villain, Before the Hero.. And if i may say, That Makes A Lot Of Sense!
The mythology around Shazam alone is a lot to explain in just one movie. And I believe they should start with the ‘First’ Shazam.. Black Adam.

The Rock’s charisma alone would make it hard for some (some) people not to like Black Adam at first sight. So, it would help if they build him up as the black hearted villain that is Black Adam.

The first film should be Black Adams origin story. Taking place in Ancient Egypt, make Black Adam the relatable hero. An unstopable threat comes to Egypt bringing Adam in to contact with the Wizard Merlin. Granting him the powers of Shazam! And thus we get the classic tale of absolute power.. Corrupts absolutely. Turning Adam in to the villain at the end of the film. Merlin imprisons him, only for him to return in the second film, “SHAZAM: THE RETURN OF BLACK ADAM” or something like that..

What do you folks think? Are you glad this movie is finally going somewhere? Is it a good idea to split the Shazam movie onto two parts? Share your thoughts, Comment below. Please follow and subscribe. Thanks so very much for reading.

So, until next time folks.. Peace Out!
