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. 

“IT’S ALIVE!!: ‘HELLBOY’ Set To Return With R-Rated Reboot!”

A couple of days ago, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola announced on his social media that his baby boy, Hellboy will return to theaters with a R-Rated Reboot with a new cast, crew and writing staff. Further driving in the final nail in the coffin of Del Toro’s Run on the character along with (at this point) the one true Hellboy Ron Perlman

This news comes months after Del Toro himself made this announcment..

So, the Perlman Hellboy sails off in to the sunset. (That sucks!) But! Animation should STILL be an option for all associated with the original films. 

Now, according to Mignola and Collider News, Mignola is among the writers behind the reboot. Directing will be “The Descent” Director, Neil Marshall. Even bigger news is the man who will be trying to fill the very large and impressive shoes of Ron Perlman, 

David Harbour from “Stranger Things” and many other projects.

Looking at a side by side of the two

David is 6’2. He has a good built. He is still relatively young enough to bulk up and can go the distance of multiple films. He kinda has the chin. He is a really good actor. So.. He’s no Ron Perlman… But i can dig this casting. 

The working title is “HELLBOY: RISE OF THE BLOOD WITCH” or something like that.. Again, it is a working title and no official announcment has been made. 

Lastly, the fact that the Studio and everyone involved is approaching this with a R-Rated treatment, makes this project very intriguing for me. 

Allow me to explain.

Way back when.. I had a Hellboy game for the PlayStation, 

Not the most beautiful looking game. But! The story was pretty damn dark and spooky. Very gruesome and intense. Every aspect of the game was pretty darn spooky. Lets just say i did not play this game with the light off. (I was a kid! So sue me) Pure gamers will probably get on my ass about the lousy graphics and controls, but this isnt about the gameplay itself. Im referring to the enviroment the game presented. It was fucking dark! Del Toro’s Hellboy was very light in comparison. Not as dark and twisted. This R-Rated reboot could give Hellboy a chance to really let loose and be the character Mignola had created in the first place. 

So, im hyped. Im happy Horn Head is getting another chance to grace the big screen, lets hope they do it justice and do it right. And most importantly, Make It Fun! 

What do you folks think? Are you excited for a new interpretation of Hellboy? Hit me up!

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“VERY FUCKING LATE GEEK NEWS: GO! GO! POWER RANGERS!”

So.. I was just going through my blog site and i realized.. “Holy Shit! I havent said shit about the Upcoming Power Rangers movie!?” 
So here goes nothing.. 

A Power Rangers Movie is on the way! Scheduled for a early 2017 realease. Its the first time since.. 1994-95 that the Rangers will be appearing on the big screen. 

(When it was first announced, i wasnt hyped, nor was i upset, nor can i say i was remotely interested. It did however make me nostalgic about the original.)

Months passed and we got our first look at the Ranger suits..

Of course, all of fandom half ridiculed Saban and.. Uhm.. Lionsgate?! Are they the ones doing it?.. Hmm.. Gotta fact check.. BRB! 🏃🏃

YUP! ITS LIONSGATE!

(Anyhoo) 

Fandom ridiculed the new suits as blatant Iron Man ripoffs. 

(I noticed the similarities. But still respected the studios direction they were going with the costumes.)

After that, Casting news began to spread like wildfire. 

We had our cast of Twenty-somethings playing Some-Teens. Then Elisabeth Banks of ‘Zac and Miri Make A Porno’, ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘Pitch Perfect’ was cast as Rita Reuplsa. 

(That caught my attention. As to that i am indeed a fan of Ms.Banks.)

Then we got our first look at Rita Repulsa..

(Then my penis decided to pay attention!)

The photo clearly showcasing the very different and uniqe style they are taking with the whole thing. 

Thanks to ‘Entertainment Weekly’ we got more and more exclusive looks at the Rangers..

Then more casting news.. 

‘Breaking Bad’ Star, Bryan Cranston was announced to play head in a lava lamp, Zordon! 

(Interestingly enough. It turns out Cranston, in his early years in show buisness, voiced a number of characters in the original Power Rangers series…

Your welcome!)

Hype is steadily climbing throughout the interwebs at this point. We got Heisinberg playing Zordon, and a Rita Repulsa that makes men and women pitch tents in thier pants! Things are looking good!

Most recently, we got more exclusive posters from the studio, featuring the Rangers striking poses on their, still yet to be revealed, Mega Zords..

(My hype senses are tingeling! Yes.. The hype bug is slowly creeping upon me. Cant say im there yet.. Perhaps when we get our first Trailer, and its actually good.. We’ll see.)

And FINALLY! The MOST recent casting news to hit. Has been the addition of SNL Alum (and personal SNL Favorite) Bill Hader. And he will Voice APLHA-5! 

Things are looking very good for the Remake/Reboot of the Power Rangers at the moment. The movie could suck major Donkey Balls! But that remains to be seen. We wont know until the film drops, March 24, 2017! But right now.. In my humble opinion.. This looks pretty fucking awesome! 

So what do you folks think? Are you excited by what your seeing so far from the New Power Rangers movie? Hit me up, place a comment.. FOLLOW/SUBSCRIBE to the blog! And let me know what you think!

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“IT’S OFFICIAL! WE HAVE OUR ‘DEATHSTROKE’!”

I know im late.. But seriously.. Fuck It!
It was announced the other day, by DC film/comic executive Geoff Johns, that Deathstroke will be the Main Villain for the solo BatFleck Batman Film. And He will be played by.. Fuck! Uhm.. Mangonello? Manana-jello? Manjajalolo? Hold up… 

This fucker right here! 👆 

JOE MANGENIELO! thats it! Thats how it goes! 

So anyways.. Great choice! He has the look to pull it off..

He has the size. And i am very certain he has the talent. I am not completley familliar with his work as an actor except for his breif run as Flash Thompson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, and his role in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “SABOTAGE. In which he was good. Never saw True Blood.. But it lasted a long time and that is where his fan base comes from. 

He does indeed have the look. Im certain he has the chops, and lastly.. He’s not such a big name that it would distract from the performance of the character. So thats a big plus in my book. 

Im Pleased with the casting and am excited for the future of the new solo Batman run.
