Blah, Blah, Blah…*shrug* Eh!: The sad truth of a writer who’s lost his way..

Hey there folks… If you haven’t noticed… I’ve been more ghost then usual over here on my blog.

I.. Dont know what the fuck is wrong..

I find myself so.. Detached from writing. I want to write. I love to write.. But, something is Wrong! 

I’m just not feeling it. 

It’s weird. So many new geek news have been dropping out from all over the damn place. Im like “Hey, thats cool. I should blog about that..” nothing. “Thats not right. I should blog about that” nothing. “Thats interesting.. I should blog about that..” nothing. “That was a good movie.. I should do a review..” nothing.

It cant be my Work and my personal life. Sure its has had its ups and downs. But its never stopped me from doing what i love to do.

So why am i so.. Drained? So, detached from it all?

I have to finish my Batman story. I want to finish it.. But, i can’t feel it. I have another couple of stories brewing.. But, as much as i want to put thumbs to key pad, or pen to paper.. I’m. Just. Not. Feeling it!

And i dont know why?!! I dont know whats happened… 

Maybe this little rant will help.. Maybe getting it off my chest with all of you will help..

Who fucking knows.. I hope it does.. Maybe it’ll snap me out of my little humdrum..

Thanks for your time folks.. Stay tuned for the “Defenders Team Tournament” Results blog coming soon.. Maybe.. Idk..

Until next time.. Hopefully.. Peace Out!

NEW TWITTER TOURNAMENT ANNOUNCEMENT!

In honor of the awesomness that was Marvel’s The Defenders. I have been inspired to start a new Twitter Tournament called..

#DefendersTeamTournament 

The rules are as Follows! 

*You assemble your own team of “Defenders” thay can consist of marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse and Valiant Characters! 

* No mega power characters. They must be street level heroes. Much like the actual defenders.

*Not a major requirement. But each team memeber must represent a key role. IE: A daredevil type, a Luke Cage type, A Jessica Jones type and a Iron Fist Type. But its not mandatory. Have fun with building your team.

*Doubles will be allowed. (So be prepared to see a lot of Batmans and Daredevils..)

* Winners are determined by Favs or RT’s. Team with most votes wins! Poll system will not be used for this tournament.

*Players must submit thier teams to me. Via DM (direct message) and must send me Pics of your characters.

That should cover it. Any questions? You know where to find me.. 

BTW: here’s MY team.. See you in the tournament arena bitches! 😝😝😂

INTRODUCING NEW BLOG SEGMENT: “WHAT?!”

Greetings ladies and gentelnerds and welcome to a Brand New Blog Segment! 

“WHAT?!” Is the Blog Segment in which i just ask the Question.. WHAT?! in regards to a certain bit of news that may be in the atmosphere. 

Today’s Topic?..


Its been reported, Today? Was it? Anyway, these days bleed together for me.. I have no idea what day it is now.. Anywhoo!

DC and WB announced that a slate of DC Comics centric films outside the current DCEU Universe..


One of the first films in that line up.. 

A Joker Origin Film! 


Produced by the legendary Martin Scorsese, 

and directed by “The Hangover” director Todd Phillips

Its supposed to be set in the 1980’s and is to be made to look like a Taxi Driver toned film.


The only upside I see in this..

No Jared Leto

Although he is still set to appear in both Suicide Squad 2 and Gotham City Sirens.

This could be a massive success, or It could be the dumbest fucking thing for WB to try to do so soon.

Really WB? An Elseworlds set of films?!


You’ve barely been able to set up your current DCEU Universe properly!

4 films in, and the only current success you have is “WONDER WOMAN”

(I do realize i have yet done a movie review for the film.. Thats coming soon..)

Im still going go hold a wait and see mentality.. But seriously…


Until next time folks.. Peace out!

“MY THOUGHTS ON.. Marvel And Fox’s ‘Secret’ Relationship”

Greetings ladies and gentelnerds! 

When it was announced that Josh Brolin was cast as CABLE for “DEADPOOL 2”. The news, understandably, confused many fans. How can this actor be in two places at once?

Simple answer, its two completely different characters! But if we look a little deeper..

Like most companies/movie studios, or hell even sports teams. If you are signed in to a ‘Contract’. That means they own you. You cant go or do anything anywhere else that resembles what you do for them. IE: the no Compete Clause. 

Josh Brolin and many other Marvel Studios Stars are under that same No Compete Clause in thier contracts.. Meaning, No Marvel Studios employee can star or participate in other comic book properties outside of Marvel Studios. So, How is it that Marvel allowed Josh to head on over to Fox, whilst still under contract? And no its not because its another “Marvel” film.. It may have the Marvel Banner, but its not in the same house.

Here’s what it really is.. Marvel and Fox have a secret, backdoor relationship. 

In this relationship. “I’ll give you this, if you give me that.” 

Fox ownes everything and anything that falls under FANTASTIC FOUR, or X-MEN. 


Not including those that are Co-owned by Marvel and Fox. Like, RONIN THE ACCUSER, 

QUICKSILVER, and SCARLET WITCH

 just to name a known few. 

However! As we all know, EGO the living planet was a character that belonged to Fox. Yet he appeared in Marvel’s GUARDIANS Vol. 2.? Thats because..

Marvel and James Gunn approached Fox for Ego. Now, Fox being the opportunist said sure.. If you let us change Nega Sonic Teenage Warheads 

powers and design  for this little movie we are doing called, DEADPOOL. 

Marvel said.. “Deal!”

So, Who’s to say, this hasn’t happened more then once before.

James Gunn has stated his interest in using the Skrulls. If im not mistaken.. I think it was for Guardians 1. But the Skrulls belong to Fox. So he went with the Sakaarens! 

Here’s the interesting part. Marvel recently announced that The Skrulls, will be the villains of CAPTAIN MARVEL! 



So.. Was the Josh Brolin deal the key component of Marvel getting the Skrulls? 


Or was it, or is it, something else? 

We can only wait and see. But this secret relationship between Marvel and Fox looks to be a benefit for not only the companies. But for the fans as well. 

I for one cant wait to see what other trades and deals come out from these two.. 

Hopefully.. Its something good, and something soon.. *cough* SILVER SURFER!! *cough* *cough*

Until next time folks.. Peace out!

“WHY NOW, COULD BE THE TIME FOR A ‘CONEHEADS 2’!”

To this day ‘CONEHEADS’ is one of my most favorite SNL sketches turned Movie out of the several that we have had. (‘Night at The Ruxberry’ being another absolute fav)

I cant recall if any actual talks of a sequel have ever happened. But Now would be a great opprotunity for Dan Aykroyd and Co. To take advantage. 

“How would a ConeHeads 2 go?” You ask.. HERE’S HOW!

Beldar (Aykroyd) and Family are flourishing. Things have been going great. But, In this new day and age Beldar finds himself still struggling to fit in with Earth and its modern times. Add his new found role as a Grandfather to his millennial Grandkids, things get tougher. 
Start the film in 2016, right at the offset of the presidential election.. Beldar votes for Trump (que puns and jokes there) and boom..

Trump is elected and immigration is of course his first agenda. 

I would have Alec Baldwin play Trump in this, because, lets face it.. He’s awesome!

And it would be hilarious. Someone Trump hires finds out that Beldar and his family are not legal immagrints and that their records were falsified back in ’93. Also include that the Emporor of the coneheads discovers that Beldar deceived them and a full scale invasion ensues. 

The rest writes itself. With the current political and social climate of today. A Coneheads 2 could take on those issues in a clever and hilarious way. It doesnt have to be preachy or anything.. But it could lighten things up a bit! Poke a little fun at america at its current state.

With Chris Farley long gone. (Sadley) 

I would cast Josh Gad 

As the husband to Connie Conehead. 

Bring back a lot of the original cast. Including Sinbad and David Spade, and keep the budget to a 10 to 15 million.. Heck! It can go straight to Netflix if they want to. That would be just as cool. And they could have a massive comedy hit!

Anywho.. Thats just my thoughts on the matter.. 

HEY! Mr. Aykroyd.. Get started on this PLEASE!! 

Until Next time folks.. Peace Out!

SPECIAL EDITION: “MY THOUGHTS ON.. SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017” Prt.2

Hello, Ladies and Gentelnerds and welcome to Prt. 2 of my special edition segment of “My Thoughts On..” Todays Topic? 

TODD MCFARLANE IS DIRECTING THE SPAWN REBOOT!…( Finally!)

Now.. When i had first heard word of this.. My eyes went straight up Undertaker on me

Like.. “Really?! He’s STILL talking about doing a reboot? And he wants to direct it?! IF it does happen, its gonna be like what…a 5 hour movie?” I had very little faith in the report when i first heard it. Very little faith in Todd’s ability as a director. I just saw it as another Comic Con of him saying “Im gonna do it. Its gonna be great. I have a 500 page script ready to go. Its gonna be great!” the same thing he has been saying for many years now..

BUT! Then i dug a little deeper in to the story. Turns out, Jason Blum 

founder and creator of BlumHouse Productions

The studio behind such films as..

And much more recent and highly acclaimed films such as..

WHIPLASH

SPLIT

GET OUT

Has joined with McFarlane to produce a R-Rated, modestly budgeted reboot of SPAWN! 

The last time Spawn was seen on the big screen was (as of now) 20 years ago with Micheal Jai White in the starring role 

With John Leguizamo co starring as The Clown/Violator 

It was.. 1996-97.. I recently rewatched it on Netflix. The CGI, does not hold up at all! 

Not in the slightest. The acting is.. C-grade at best. The action, is so-so. I was a kid when this came out and it will always hold a place in my heart. But it is time for an upgrade. 

Spawn did have a very successful run on HBO with 3 seasons of an Animated Series.

If the new film is even remotely close to the darkness of the series, then they just may have a real winner.

But what really caught my attention, and actiually made me jump on board with Todd and this Spawn reboot.. Was Todd himself.. 

When the announcement was madeb Todd spoke with Collider  Video and Steve ‘Frosty’ Wientraub. (Video link will be at the end of this article… Dont you DARE skip ahead!.. Im almost finished..)

His thoughts and views on where he wants to take this movie and this story. How he plans to approach it. And his explinations as to why it took so long.. It sold me. He got me on board with this movie. I hope it turns out great. 

HOWEVER! One thing that does concern me.. Todd stated that Sam and Twitch (mainly Sam) would feature heavily in the story. Which makes me wonder, what and how will this effect Kevin Smith’s ‘Sam and Twitch’ BBC Series? 

Will they be completley seperating the two? Will it be connected? Im just curious. 

What also excites me is, If this Spawn is successful. Blumhouse and Image could look in to an extended universe. Wicthblade? 

The Darkness? 

Hell! I want a fucking Haunt movie too!

So, here’s hoping Todd and Blumhouse are successful. Im excited. What do you folks think? Hit me up! 

Heres that video i promised..


Until next time folks.. Peace Out!
