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!

JUST DROPPED MOMENTS AGO..

Ladies and Gentelnerds, “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” First official trailer..

“OFFICIAL SNEAK PEEK OF ‘SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING!'”

Just realesed mere hours ago, Take a look at our very first sneak peek at tomorrows trailer for Marvel (and sonys) “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” 

On a scale of 1 to holy fucking shit, how excited are you for tomorrows full trailer? 

“GHOSTBUSTERS(2016) MOVIE REVIEW: SOME SPOILERS INCLUDED”

So, I’ve FINALLY found the time to watch the new GHOSTBUSTERS remake/reboot, starring the all female cast of Kristen Wig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Melissa Mcarthy, and as a diehard GB fan.. I really liked it!

THE STORY: When increasing paranormal events arise in New York, 3 scientists set out to investigate. Uncovering a plot that threatens the very fabric of reality. 
The story is solid. The humor and action is on point. The special effects are not as cheapish as the trailers showcased. In the environment they appear in, suits the design and apperances of the ghouls and ghosts. The plot actually inkeeps with the Ghostbusters franchise. It doesnt make you think too hard, its not a psychological ride. Its, “Here are the players, here is the bad guy, this is whats happening, and this is how it all comes together.” very simple. It reminded me of a cross between both Original Ghostbusters films.  Re-Representing a lot of story elements. 

The nods to the past were really cool too. The humor was perfect. Its not slapstick and stupid, although there is a fart joke thrown in. Some of the cameos of the original guys were.. Okay… (more on that later) 

THE CAST: Fantastic across the board. I loved These ladies. They are a very suitable replacement to carry on this new franchise. 

Im not the biggest fan of Leslie Joneses comedy character. She feels very one note for me, “Im big, loud and black” BUT! She was great. She did not take me out of the film at all. She was actually very fun and funny.

I love Kate McKinnon. I’ll watch her do anything. Right now, she is my new Kristen Wig (oddly enough) on SNL. Since Wigs departure, Kate has been my girl. I would watch her do anything. 

Kristen Wig. Perfect. She’s kind of our.. Bill Murray character in this movie and she makes it her own though.

Melissa Mcarthy, Great. Shes always comedy gold. I grew to love Melissa in SPY, her last teaming with Director Paul Fieg before Ghostbusters. She is awesome. 
THE POSITIVES: I had a whole lot of fun with this movie. Its was funny. It had really good action. The special effects was great. And the cast was Top Notch! The cast is what really sold me on it, and the plot was actually a ribbon to tie it all together. 

THE NEGATIVES: This is where i get into some spoiler territory. But first.. Some of the edditing was off, i found certain cuts and edits that didnt sit well for me.The characters all felt like they were all very quarky. Not all of them needed to be the ‘weird’ or ‘awkward’ one. Kate could have done that on her own. The thing about the original, is that they had someone funny, but still grounded in the Bill Murray Character, Peter Venkman. 

Akroyds, Stantz was the true believer and Ramis’, Egon was the Science guy. All funny but clearly different characters. All the ladies were awkward and funny at the same time. They worked great together. But there was no flavor. 

The Cameos.. Were, ok at best. It was fun seeing everyone. But thats all it was. There was no heart behind them being there. They kill off Bill Murray’s character, Akroyd is a taxi driver, and at the last minute they shoe horn Ernie Hudson as Leslie’s Uncle and Sigourney Weaver as Kate’s mentor, at the very very end of the movie.

My ONE and most major complaint with this movie.. It should have been a direct sequal. This SHOULD have been Ghostbusters 3! It would have fit in so well following the first two. 

That kind of really made me mad. The movie was so good, at least for me, that it deserved to be a direct follow up. 

OVERALL: No where near as bad as people made it out to be. It was actually very good and entertaining. I say, if you havent seen it because of what others say. Dont let that stop you. Make your own choices. Who knows, you might like it! I know i did.. I give, GHOSTBUSTERS a.. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 6/10. Its really entertaining and fun. A film worthy of the title. And i really do hope we get a sequal. Why? One word.. “ZOOL” (Is that how its spelled?!?) I want Leslie’s Patty to be the one to get possesed by Zool.
