“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!

BREAKING NEWZZZ! (?) Maybe?! “DEADPOOL 2 has a CABLE?”

Has Josh Brolin just confirmed he has been cast as CABLE?! I literally just spotted this on my Instagram Feed.. I might be a little late with this news.. But wow! 

Haven’t heard anything yet to the contrary. He could be trolling thr fans maybe.. But wow! How cool is this?! 

He’s not only THANOS The Mad Titan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 

But now, He joins the Marvel/Fox X-Universe as CABLE!

In my research before posting this.. 

IT IS OFFICIAL! 

JOSH BROLIN is our CABLE in DEADPOOL 2!

I am loving this news. what do you folks think?!

“MY THOUGHTS ON.. FOX’S FUTURE WITH THE X-MEN UNIVERSE”

Greetings, ladies and gentelnerds and welcome to yet another thought provoking article of ‘PBS’ quality proportions… 

So! While WB/DC is trying to get itself together like Humpty Dumpty, and Marvel Studios is full steam ahead into its Phase 4. FOX is trudging ever forward with their X-Men Universe. (Should i even call it that?) 

After the “disappointment” that was ‘X-Men:Apocalypse’ (I personally, enjoyed it and found it entertaining for what it was. Flaws and all.) And many of the actor contracts being done with the completion of that movie. Many believed X-Men’s future would be headed for yet another Reboot. 
However, it appears that would not be the case. Fox is moving forward with the  current X-Men “Continuity” (I use that term very very loosely.) established in ‘Apocalypse’. Meaning many of the young cast members from that film, will be coming back.


Now, that can suggest they will either be coming back for another ‘X-Men’ titled film OR the much talked about “New Mutants” movie. Neither has been confirmed on either matter.

X-FORCE, also is currently in full planning stages. A script and scriptwriter has been established at this point. Cast in characters has not been brought up for discussion as of yet. 

DEADPOOL 2, Is still in development, with a scheduled production date coming this.. Summer? I believe. Even After a little slip up with the whole director situation. Everything seems to be going smoothly. 
And lastly.. Probably the real reason why i wanted to write this article. Fox is currently in talks with long time X-Writer and Producer Simon Kinberg,

to direct the next Upcoming X-Film.. And He himself, has stated that he wants to do, The Dark Phoenix Saga.. 

(Turn away children.. Explosive Rant in t-minus.. 3.2.1..)
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!  Why the fuck cant they leave the damn phoenix saga the fuck alone?! They’ve tried that before, and failed fucking miserably. Its fucking done! Leave it the fuck alone!. There are just too many components needed to tell that story properly and with its proper respect. They’ve fucked the continuty up. They fucked the Phoenix’s actual origin up royally. Not only that.. Kinberg hasnt directed a damn thing.. Ever! Not so much as even a commercial or a DVD extra. He has zero experiance with directing. Now.. Devils advocate.. He has been a producer and writer of these films since X-3: The Last Stand. So hes been in the trenches. He has his tentacles in everything right now. Star Wars, X-Men, lots of things! However.. This is also the same motherfucking dumb piece of shit that gave us.. THIS!..

Thats right folks.. He wrote and produced and (according to some. Not sure if true) Edited/ghost directed, this piece of shit of a.. I dont want to even call it a movie! TRASH!

There’s plenty of other more qualified Directors out there. And more importanly.. There are severel, thousands even, of great X-Men Stories to mine that can be translated for the big screen. For example..

Just to name a few. They seriously need to stop with the Phoenix stuff. Get off her clit for fucks sake! 

Be original or something. FUCK! 

I think im done folks.. Let me knw what you folks think. Hit me up. 

Until, next time folks.. Peace Out!

“SO, IS IT A RE_REBOOT OR A RE-RE-REBOOT?!: MAKING SENSE OF THE FUTURE OF THE X-MEN MOVIES!”

Can anyone actually make sense of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men Franchise? Not sure.. But I’ll give it a shot. Lets take a look at it, step by step. 

Everything was hunky-dory at the start,

X-MEN: in the Pre-Marvel Studios Era. This was the best we could ever hope for. And it was indeed really good. Things were really looking up. 

X2:X-MEN UNITED: It started out great. But there was a certain point where things started to shift in the other direction. 

X-MEN: THE LAST STAND: Well.. We all know what this shit was.. Although it was a fun ride.. It still sucked.. Again, we didnt know any better. 

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE: It was right around here, we realized Fox didnt give a rats shitty stinking ass about continuity! Nor quality for that matter..

Not long after that, The Mighty Marvel Machine was full steam ahead and The Avengers was on its way.. Fox (and several other companies) took notice. So they decided to Reboot the Franchise, or at least, Revive it..

X-MEN FIRST CLASS: They really did UP the quality factor for this one. Although, continuity still didnt mean a damn thing at all. But! It was still a breath of new life in to the weakening Franchise. 

With Continuty still being a major critique toward the series.. Fox said, “Hey! We just Rebooted this.. Lets Re-Reboot it again.. But call it a Re-Start, or a Re-Furbish.

DAYS OF FUTURE PAST: Was to be a merging of the First Franchise with the Second and ‘restart’ it from there, with an all new ‘Time Line’ and New ‘Continuity’.. And they did a fantastic job. Even the Returning Bryan Singer directed the hell out of it.. 

Then came.. 

APOCALYPSE: Was not complete shit like The Last Stand.. But it had some pretty serious problems. Still, even with a New Time Line to work with.. They still made really bad continuity Errors! 

Now lets fast forward to several months later.. FOX’s biggest non X-Film/X-Film was DEADPOOL. And of course they want to milk that cow for all its worth. But they also see how fans have been reacting to all the other X-Movies. They know there is still money in this franchise. 

With LOGAN coming to theaters in March of Next year.


And this being Hugh Jackmans last go as Wolverine. Fox is taking a step back and looking at what they have.. A bankable property that despreatly needs to establish a firm footing in this POST MCU World. 

Recently FOX has announced a pause on any actual ‘X-Men’ films, except for the in development spin off NEW MUTANTS. Gambit is off the table. DP2 should be ready to go in front of the cameras by January. But FOX is currently looking at a whole RE-RE- REBOOT of the entire X-Universe that they have. 

Bryan Singer says he is Done.. For good. 
FOX has also announced that Simon Kinberg is slated to be the one spearheading the future of the X-Universe.

This, being the guy who thought THIS..

Was a Great Idea! 

Kinberg has been attached to the FXU (‘Fox Xmen Universe’.. Im coining that phrase.. TM and Shit!) since The Last Stand, boasting a Writing credit on that movie. He’s been all over things ever since.. And personally.. I dont think hes the guy for the job. 

The X-Men and FOX, need to completely wipe the slate clean. If they are indeed interested in making a Real Bankable Film Franchise for not nust thier pockets, but for the fans as well.. They need to start afresh. Get rid of everyone that was involved with the past. 

Bring in New vision and a New prospective to the Franchise. Also, they need to find someone who knows these characters and respects them..

The X-Men was and still is, about Us! The outcasts and downtrodden. Though the world wishes to present that we are all in harmony and shit.. But we havent been so divided in so long.. The X-Men represented that. A community of individuals struggling to find thier place in the world, while the world shuns and rejects them. Fears them. The X-Men struggle to protect those who cant protect themselves. The X-Men is about a team, a Family. A community. Not one man or 2 friends constantly at odds. Thats where Fox fucked up. They didnt give a shit about any of that. 

The Marvel Fan in me Screams, just give it back to Marvel! But Marvel has its plate full as it is.. If Fox can not get it together on their own.. They NEED to cut a deal with Marvel.. (More on that in another Blog at another time..) 

So as of Right now.. We could be expecting another Re-Boot of the whole show.. Lets see what happens after LOGAN and DP2.

Thats all i got on this situation. Please leave a comment. Follow/Subscribe. And all that good stuff..

So, until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“THE ‘DEADPOOL 2’ DIRECTOR DEBACLE!(A LOOK AT THE CURRENT STATE OF DP2!)”

As many of you are aware. Tim Miller, director of 2016’s biggest superhero movie hit DEADPOOL, will not be returning to helm the production of DEADPOOL 2! 

According to reports and other Nerd News Sources. Tim Miller and Ryan Reynolds could not come to an agreement over what direction to take the sequel. 

Miller: Wanting to take advantage of the success of the first film and plan for a higher budget film. With a larger budget, He wanted to take the film down a more slightly serious road and make the story more grand. 

Reynolds: Felt that a Larger scale, more serious film for Deadpool, wouldnt be a Deadpool movie. 

Unable to come to an agreement. The two men decided to part ways. 

Another divide between the two, that could have been the final nail in the coffin. Was the supposed casting of CABLE 

Kyle Chandler, of Friday Night Lights fame, Was Millers choice for the character. Reynolds, DP 1 Writers AND Fox Studios themselves were not on board with this decision. And so.. That was The End!

[Personal Note: Not an expert on Kyle Chandliers acting career.. But, i think his style of drama could be an interesting mix with Ryan’s Deadpool.. But thats just me.] 

Many names are now floating around in the rumorshpere and News Sites on who could possibly replace Miller in the Directors chair. Names such as, Quentin Tarintino, Michael Vaughn, and Edger Wright and Drew Goodard just to name a few. 

Most recently, rumor has it that Reynolds and 20th Century Fox are looking at a short list of Directors, with JOHN WICK Co-director David Leitch being at the top of the list. Nothing has been finalized at the present time.

Many would also suggest that Ryan Reynolds be the one to direct the sequel, since he is so entrenched with the character. To that i say, Not a bad idea.. But not a good one either. I’ll tell you why..
Reynolds has not directed anything as of yet. So he doesnt have much experiance in that department. Also, being a director is an all encompassing job. The Director is there from start to finish. Thier pressence has to be in everything, from editing to set design to wardrobe. A responsibility that would prove veey challenging for a first time director, like Reynolds, who is also the Full Time Producer of the film and the Star of the movie itself. It would be extremely fun to see Ryan Reynolds have a seat in the directors chair on a Deadpool film, but its too much too soon. Even for him. Starring, Producing and Directing is a tall order to fill.

Thats the current state of Deadpool 2. Once further information drops, I’ll try and bring you folks as up to date as i possible can.

So, Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“FOX’S GAMBIT FILM OFFICIALLY DEAD!?”

In the immortal words of Queen, “Another One Bites The Dust!”
Yet another director for 20th Century Fox’s “Gambit” film, Starring Channing Tatum, has dropped out. This one jumping ship to DC/WB to helm the live action “Justice League:Dark” movie.(sweetness)

So, this makes like… 4 directors to drop out of this movie? (Anyone ever try mixing E and J Apple Whiskey with Cranberry Juice?… Its so good..) anyway.. What? Oh uhm.. Right! 4 directors have said “Fuck This” to Fox and this potentiol Gambit movie… Honestly.. This stand alone Gambit movie was a bad.. Bad Idea from the beggining! 

Dont get me wrong.. LOVE the character! Like the actor too.. But.. Seriously? Gambit?! What story could you possibly have us care enough about, to make a 2 hour film with?!? “Well Deadpool worked out for us” says a Fox exec.. Deadpool is a very popular character that has had his own ongoing title for a long time now.. Gambit tried a solo comic run.. Twice! It didnt work.. (or was it thrice!?) 

I firmly believe Gambit would serve better in an assamble film.. Either the next X-film, or New Mutants, or maybe.. More preferably.. Deadpool 2! Like a Collosus type cameo, but larger and more interval to the plot.. (seriously.. Cranberry Juice and Apple Whiskey.. Great combo!) 

A Deadpool and Gambit team up.. WITH Cable.. Would be AWESOME!! get on it Fox.

How am i gonna close this?. Im Finished.. I got nothing else to say about it… Uhm… “I wanna rock right now, Im Rob Bass and i came to get down, im not internationally known. But im known to rock the microphone because i get stupid, i mean outrageous….

“DEADPOOL”- (SPOILER FREE)MOVIE REVIEW

Hey, Hey! Welcome back to another “Movie Review Blog” (sans- Speculating Nerd) and today’s movie is a true treasure!

“DEADPOOL”!!

image

My God! Where do I begin?!?

STORY: When Merc for hire Wade Wilson meets the woman of his dreams, Vanessa, his so called perfect life is thrown for a loop and is diagnosed with full blown cancer. Short on options, he enters a seedy government operation intent on finding a cure. Only to discover he’s been deceived and is being conditioned to be a super powered slave for sale. In the process, he’s given the Mutant Ability to heal from any wound. But is horribly disfigured in the process. After escaping, he sets out on a path of revenge!

Literally ripped out of the comics. To an extent of course. (Hollywood) But the film is wonderfully crafted. The writing is spot on, from the humor, to the dialogue, all the way to the Love Story. DEADPOOL’s fourth wall breaking was used perfectly and wisely. It wasn’t overused, or obnoxious! It never plays itself out.

However, as great as the film is, from start to finish. I feel like the film is too short. But! On the other hand, the length fits the type of story that’s being told. But it still leaves you wanting a little more.

CHARACTERS: Collosus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead-

Were fantastic delights! Every moment they were on screen was so much fun. They were used respectfully and wisely. Β They didn’t feel out of place or used just for gags. Although, Colosus had some very funny moments with his interactions with DP.

THE NEGATIVES: Not a whole lot but! It really does end leaving you wanting more! The movie could have been given an extra 20-30 minutes extra of running time. But one could assume that would also have to do with the budget. So, I can’t fault them for that. Colosus… Too goody-goody! As a fan and a long time reader I have witnessed Colosus’s character evolve over the years and he has become a rather no holds barred badass when the situation arrives. The film played heavy to his earlier character traits of yesteryear. I found myself saying, “Come on man! cut loose!”. Lastly… Not enough connections to the whole X- Universe! Understandable, the budget didnt call for a shit load of Xmen showing up, but more tie-ins would have been nice. A mention of the Weapon-X program. They could have dropped more hints of what could come next. The movie as a whole, felt very, Stand Alonish. As if to say, “we’re making the best movie we can. The way we want to. We feel honored to be given this oprotunity. But if shit don’t work out, we are not gonna befuddle whatever it is that Fox has in store for the X-Universe. This is Deadpool! We’ll leave what we can open for the future. But we are making a Deadpool Movie!” (At least that’s what I’m getting out of this movie.)

OVERALL: What a way to kick off, not only 2016, but the Comic Book movie Genre’s most ambitious decade, ever! Deadpool has, Heart, Laughs, Action, and pure Fun at every turn. I give DEADPOOL a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 9/10! I can’t wait for more DEADPOOL!

Hope you folks enjoyed this review. Speculating Nerd will be handeling the SPOILER FILLED version. Stay tuned. Thank you for reading,

So, until next time folks.. Peace Out!
