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. 

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 NEWS!”- ZENDAYA’S Mystery Role Revealed!?(SPOILER ALERT)

So.. According to sources close to “THE WRAP”and various other news sites. Zendaya’s mysterious role in “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMMING” has been revealed.

According to those close sources of “The Wrap” Zendaya is set to play, not Michelle as first officially reported, but in fact our favorite Red Head.. Mary Jane Watson! 

IF! In fact this IS true… I am so fucking HAPPY!!!  I love her on K.C Undercover on Disney Channel. She is a funny and phenomenal talent! She can sing. She can dance. She can act! She Has the look!

I am so stoked about this. Clearly, shes not gonna be the over sexed version of the character, because it all takes place in high school. But she is beautiful! And she can be that kind of M.J while still being very innocent at the same time. 

Again, if this is in fact true.. I am so stoked and excited for Spider-Man: Homecomming! (still not a fan of the name.. But whateves) I truly believe that Marvel (and sony) “Just Hit The Jackpot”

Let me know what you folks think. Comment below and hit that subscribe buttom.. (wherever the heck it is!) Peace Out!

DONALD GLOVER CAST IN “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING”!

Yes.. It is already old news. But I just wanted to take a minute to talk about Donald Glover’s casting in MARVEL/SONY’S “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” (really don’t like that title)

So, it’s been officially announced that fan favorite ‘Community’ star Donald Glover has been cast in the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming”

image

For a very long time now, fans have wanted 32 year old Glover to be cast as..

image

15 year old Miles Morales, AKA Ultimate Spider-Man.

image

Stupid idea/online campaign I have ever heard.. But understood to say the least.

Needless to say, I am not at all on board for a Donald Glover/Miles Morales casting call. Miles needs to be a young kid. Tom Holland is 20, looks 17/18.. Get someone at least 18.. Looks 15/16.

So, what role could Glover play in the Spider-Man reboot? Here’s some of my ideas..

THE TINKERER:

image

YES.. I just talked shit about age appropriate casting.. But making The Tinkerer younger wouldn’t be sooo bad in this case. Also Glover’s comedic talent would be a great addition to the character. Not only that, but Glover’s Tinkerer bouncing off of Micheal Keaton’s Vulture,

image

would be a great thing to see on screen.

ROBBIE ROBERTSON:

image

Another aging down of a character.. But Glover would make for a good Robbie. He has the ability to play the character with a lot of heart and integrity.

This next one is going to be a huge stretch, so give me some space…

Donald Glover.. In the Ultimate Cameo, as..

THE CHAMELEON:

image

Yes.. The Chameleon! We are already getting two villains in this film.. I’m not lookin to jam pack it with a third.. BUT! Donald Glover could be a unique character for the film.. Nothing to big or  distracting from the plot.. Border line straight up cameo. END CREDITS SCENE: Glover removes his face to reveal.. The Chameleon, setting up something for future movies. Either the next Spiderman film.. Or SONY’S (still in the pipeline) Sinister Six film!?

Ok. That’s what I got folks.. Please feel free to comment your thoughts..

So, Until Next Time Folks.. Peace Out!

“CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR” (SPOILER FREE) MOVIE REVIEW!

Continue reading “CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR” (SPOILER FREE) MOVIE REVIEW!

“SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING”: Real Title, Or Marvel’s Elaborate Hoax?!?

image

I will try to be as brief as possible..

“SPIDER-MAN:HOMECOMING” is the title for the Marvel backed reboot of Spider-Man (for Sony)

I DON’T LIKE IT! (Sorry) but I don’t.. It looks like the title for an animated feature.. Even the design looks cartoonish. AND I think it’s a hoax! (Allow me to elaborate)

Can it be possible, that Marvel Studios, Disney, Sony and all the heads over there, along with Kevin Fiege, couldn’t come up with a better name and title then “HOMECOMING”?!? (I’m gonna be doing some stretching here, so give me some space.) Way back when, Mr.Fiege and the folks at Marvel held a little event at the El Capitan theater. In which they announced their entire film slate for Phase 3. The first title they announced was “CAPTAIM AMERICA: SERPENT SOCIETY” It was an official looking logo.. But then Kevin pulled a fast one and said, “Thats not the title. Lets pull up the real title” and with a roar from the crowd, “CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR” faded on to the screen.

So is it possible that the folks at Marvel are messing with us right now?!

I CERTAINLY THINK SO! (I really wouldn’t put it past them)

I honestly believe (and desperately hope and pray) That the REAL NAME of the Spider-Man reboot will be…

image

Maybe it’ll be announced at D23, or another Marvel “event” perhaps. Along with other casting announcements? Who knows!

WHILE IM ON THE SUBJECT OF CAST!

RDJ is now confirmed for the filmimage

Joining Zandaya, Tom Holland and Morisa Tomei.

So far, Marvel’s Spider-Man Universe is looking pretty darn awesome.. But, FUCK! That Name tho.. Smh!

What do you guys think. REAL TITLE OR ELABORATE HOAX?! Let me know your thoughts! Thanks for reading and please follow and subscribe to the blog! Thank you.

So, Until next time folks… Peace Out!

PETER PARKER VS MILES MORALES: THE SPIDER-GATE SCANDAL!!

Hey there Ladies and Gentelnerds! I’m back to discuss with you the whole halabalo over the recent casting of Spider-Man and the public outcry over the fact that its not Miles Morales!

image

As all of you may remember. THIS 👆 was the short list of Actors up for contention in the role of Spider-Man.. That’s a lot of White Bread right there,I tell you what.

And after a “Long and Extensive Search” Marvel Studios has chosen, Tom Holland.

image(Another Brit, if I’m not mistaken?!)

And of course.. My fellow Nerds and Nerdettes were kinda pissed! So I got to thinking.. Why all this hate for Peter Parker!? Why is there such a rush for Miles Morales?!

image

Sure! We are in desperate need of some diversity in the Comic Book Movie World.. But we can’t just toss aside the Original! The One that starts it all! Peter Parker IS Spider-Man.. Miles is also Spider-Man.. But Peter Parker IS And ALWAYS will BE, Spider-Man! I think it is best that Marvel… (Sigh) and Sony, Start with Peter Parker. IF Sony is serious about expanding its Spider-Universe. They need to figure out how to do it right! With Marvel setting it all up for them.. It shouldn’t be so hard.

“But We’ve seen Peter Parker so many times already! It’s time for a change!!”

image

That is undeniable. But you can’t start at the middle of a story and expect everyone to know what the heck is going on! There would be no Miles, if not for a Peter! And to be a little honest and blunt.. Not a lot of people, at least those who are not in to our world of comics, Know who Miles Morales is! Those who do know.. Is only because we shove him in everybody’s face! “Look!! This is the first ever Half Black, Half Latino Spiderman!! He’s fucking awesome!! Read his book!!”

Peter Parker’s Spider-Man is on the level of Batman and Superman Recognition, around the world! Allow me to put it this way.. (Something I picked up while watching my favorite YouTube movie show, “AMC MOVIE TALK”)

I did some research *GASP!!!!!!* yea, yea, yea.. I DID do some research.. In the month of April.. Of THIS year (2015) according to

image

‘COMICHRON: THE COMICS CHRONICLES’ (Comichron.Com) Which basis it’s Sales figures according to Diamond Comic Distributors, The leading Comic Shop Supplier in North America. As of April, an issue of ULTIMATE SPIDERMAN:Miles Morales comics, sold roughly 29,300+ Copies.

image

If you go on the website, and trace back to January of this year, up till April. You’ll most likely see USM:MM selling a steady 30-40,000 plus copies a month.. That means, just about.. I don’t know.. 60,000+ Comic Book readers know who he is. That Covers about, less then half of the Movie Going Audience. Which is the MAIN part, the Movie Studios want to get into the seats. They don’t really care about us. Cause in fact.. If it was solely up to us 60+Thousand.. A USM:MM movie would only make, that much in the Box office. While the Studio put 100+Million into making it! That would be a HUGE flop!

That being said.. Lets look at Amazing Spider-Man’s sales..

image

Also in the Month of April, an Issue of Amazing Spider-Man, sold about 99,300+ copies. I’m no math wiz.. But that’s triple Miles’s sales(right?!?.. Seriously, is it Triple?!) HELL! Tracking back to January.. SPIDER-GWEN sells better then Both Spider-Men!(But more on that Shortly!)

Peter Parker/Spider-Man is an established brand. There’s no ifs, ands, or butts about it!

HOWEVER!! This does NOT mean that we can NEVER get a Miles Morales film in the near future! It truly is a matter of doing it CORRECTLY!

If Marvel Studios sets up the proper Spider-Unviverse for SONY to work with.. AND most importantly.. IF Sony could dig its head out of its fat ass! They can follow up on what Marvel provides them. I believe an expanded Spider-Universe can happen.

HERE’S THE IDEA:

image

Marvel re-introduces us to Spider-Man, within the MCU. Establish him in to the world with appearances here and there. Get us used to the new guy and the new status quo, per say. Hand him over back to Sony, with your first film, lay the ground work for a massive SPIDER-U EVENT! Oh, I don’t know.. Something like.. “EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE” kind of event!

image

That way.. You can introduce every possible Spider-Man (or Woman) you could think of. Most importantly,

MILES MORALES

image

SPIDER-GWEN (Gwen Stacy)  image

SILK

image

SCARLET SPIDER

image

SPIDER-GIRL/WOMAN

image

and (perhaps) SPIDER-MAN 2099!

image

The beautiful thing about the world of Spider-Man, and what could separate it from the rest of the MCU, Is the fact that, Each Franchise could exist within its own universe!

image

There really is no need to cram all these characters into one single timeline, or universe. There is so much potential in an idea like this.. I just hope Sony don’t fuck it up in the process! Or at the very least.. Don’t fuck up Spider-Man at all!!

I hope I made some kind of sense to you folks.. I would really like to hear your thoughts on this. SUBSCRIBE and  Comment below, Hit me up on Twitter or Instagram. Thank you for your time folks!

So, Until next time folks… Peace Out!
