Greetings! Ladies and Gentelnerds,

Early yesterday afternoon Marvel and Marvel Studios released the first official poster (and official release date) for next years…

With the drop of the poster, word was put out that a teaser trailer would drop later that night.

So, during some sporting event of non importance.. This!.. Awesome tease for the film was released… In Case You Missed It.. Here you go..

Wakanda looks beautiful. And just by looking at most of the promotional concept art of the film, 

And looking at the trailer.. This is going to be a beautiful looking movie. I think Black Panther is going to leave a lasting mark on the MCU.

Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER, starring Chadwick Boesman opens next year, Feb 16. 

I for one am so fucking hyped!! This was an excellent teaser! What did you folks think? Leave a comment below!

Until next time folks.. Peace out!

THIS JUST IN! Get Ready To Ragna-Rock And Roll With Our First Offical Tease Of “THOR: RAGNAROK”

TGIMM! Thank God It’s Marvel Monday!

Earlier this afternoon (eastern satndard time) Marvel Studios and Disney released our first official teaser trailer for the upcoming “THOR:RAGNAROK” and a new Movie Poster 

in case you missed it, or haven’t seen it yet.. Here you go, 


Oh My God! How epic was that?! 

Hela! She looks absolutely badass! 

Gladiator Hulk looks straight out of the comics! (side note: The cgi doesnt look 100%. Could just be me.. It looks 85-90%. But this is the first teaser and the movie doesnt come out for another, 6-7 Months. Plenty of time to clean it up) 

Im stoked. So fucking hyped for this movie. I want it now! 

Thor: Ragnarok opens Novemeber 3, 2017. 

“SPOILER FREE MOVIE REVIEW: ‘MARVEL’S DR. STRANGE’!”

Wasabi, Ladies and Gentelnerds! Its been awhile since I’ve done a Movie Review Blog. And Oh Boy, what a Movie I got for you folks. 

MARVEL STUDIOS’ 14th entry in to the MCU.. “DR. STRANGE” 


THE STORY: “When renowned Neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange is injured in a Car Accident he is robed of the use of his hands. Desperate to regain his former life, he searches for a way to fix his hands. When he discovers a patients remarkable recovery, he is set on a path that will change his life and shape his destiny forever.”

Dr. Strange was.. Fantastic! A true breath of fresh air for the MCU. The action was good. The story was great. The special effects was trippy as hell! The Humor was well placed and used perfectly. Everything about it was Top Notch. 

THE CAST: Was excellent in every way. Everyone played their role perfectly. Benedict Cummberbatch, 

 The clear stand out as the Good Dictor Himself. His ability to portray someone who is so arrogant and self absorbed, so likable, was an amazing feat in my eyes. Strange could come off as an unlikable character, but in Benedict’s hands he came off more as a flawed individual with an over inflated ego. The supporting cast was brilliant. Tilda Swinton’s Ancient One 

was very pleasant. Chewitel as Mordo 

was a refreshing version of the character and Benedict Wong’s..

Wong, was a true delight.
A special shout out to an unsung cast member who really pulled his weight around and stole every scene he was in..

The Cloak Of Levitation, deserves an Acadamy Award. (You’ll see.. No spoilers remember?)

THE POSITIVES: The Humor, so much fun. The Special Effects, Mind bending. The Easter Eggs nerdgasm inducing. The final Battle.. Spellbinding! Very well done. Every aspect of this movie is great for multiple veiwings. 

THE NEGATIVES: This was a Little difficult for me.. First viewing, saw nothing wrong. 3rd viewing.. Eh.. Im gonna nit pick these.. Rachel Mcadams.. Beautiful. Served her purpose for the film and the story.. But slightly waisted. The villain.. There is a Big Bad in this movie. One that is used to great effect. But Mads Mickelsons Villain character was just.. Threatening. Not overwhelming.. Just a threat. What he did was cool and fun.. But, unimportant. Which Marvel gets a lot of heat for. Which is their lack of compeling villains. I would let Strange slide, because it isnt really about the villain.. Its about Strange, and how he deals with the threat. It is very clearly, Dr. Strange’s story. Would have liked a grander battle at the end with THE BIG BAD (SPOILER) But, the way he is used and dealt with, is very much a Dr. Strange way of dealing with the situation. So its not really a negative. 

Lastly.. I believe the story tellers left out a very Key factor in Strange’s back story. And i think that should have been present. Perhaps they may save it for the sequel. 

OVERALL: Fantastic! Absoulouly brilliant. While it is No “CIVIL WAR” it is a great movie and ranks very high on my MCU list of greatness! Just below GUARDIANS, but just above ANTMAN. 

DR. STRANGE is a movie worth watching on the big screen. I recommend multiple viewings just so you can catch what you may have missed before. My 3rd viewing i spot Mindless Ones, where as i didnt notice them before. Great Acting, beautiful visuals and truly a whole lot of fun.. I give Marvel’s “DR. STRANGE” a 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 8/10! (QUICK NOTE: THERE ARE 2 AFTER CREDIT SCENES! SO STICK AROUND AFTER THE CREDITS)

If you have seen Dr. Strange, please let me know your thoughts.. But..

Until next time folks… Peace Out!

“NORMAN REEDUS as GHOST RIDER?!”

As usual, I am very fashionably late to the rumor mill party.. But! Whateves..

So, it was discussed awhile back that Daryle himself, Norman Reedus, of “The Walking Dead” had expressed intrest in joing the MCU as a very particular character.. IE: The Spirit Of Vengence, GHOST RIDER!

image

Ill make this quick.. SURE! Why not. He’s a great character actor. He can look the part. This notion however does draw two ‘worries’ per say.. One: IF, Marvel was to go forward with a Ghost Rider project, which GR would they go with? Johnny Blaze is done, thanks to Nic Cage.

image

And there have been a couple of new Ghost Riders that were published in the books in recent years.. But the clear choice would be, Danny Ketch!

image

Probably the best Ghost Rider of the bunch, in my opinion. Concern TWO: What would such a project mean to Norman’s role on THE WALKING DEAD?! It’s not a strange occurrence for an actor to be on two shows or projects at the same time. Does Norman’s interest in jumping ship, mean that his time on TWD is nearing an end? (Is Daryel Neegans first victim?) Or perhaps he simply seeks a small dream project during an upcoming offseason of filming TWD. We will have to wait and see on that.

Norman would be a great choice either way. It’ll be fun to see Ghost Rider back on the big screen or small screen and done properly. To have someone as relatable as Norman in the role would be an added bonus.

So, if not Norman, who would you folks cast as Ghost Rider? Let me know in the comments below! Thx for reading.

So, until next time folks.. Peace Out!

THOR VS. IRON MAN, IN “AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR”?!?

Hey there Ladies and Gentelnerds. I’m gonna make this quick, cause this is just pure fantasy I’m about to write here…

I just Re-Read, “THOR” Vol 1, By J. Michael Straczynski. Which sees Thor return from the dead, along with all of Asgard after “Ragnarok” had come to pass and wiped them away. Thor returned shortly after the events of the ‘Super-Human Registration Act’ and the Heroes ‘Civil War’ (and Captain America’s Death? If I’m not mistaken)

In the Third issue, Iron Man visits Thor and informs him of the whole ‘New World Order’.. And how things have changed. Well.. Lets just say.. Thor wasnt too happy,

image image

In probably the best Exchange between two comic characters ever! THOR.. Fucked him up!

So, what does this have to do with “Avengers: Infinity War” You ask?!

Well.. With Thor dieing at the end of ‘Ragnarok’ (Fingers crossed) Infinity War HAS to be the film in which he returns! Which means The Sokovian Accords and the world ‘Civil War’ has created, would have to be a prominent environment for the films to come. Which would be a very strange world for a newly revived Thor!

We’ve seen Thor and Iron Man duke it out before, in “Avengers”

image

I just think it would be pretty Epic Β to see Thor really cut loose and see this particular Battle come to life on screen.

So tell me.. What Single Comic Moment, Would YOU like to see come to life. That we Haven’t seen yet? Let me know in the comments below.

Thx for reading.. BYE!

The Speculating Nerd: Speculates on “THOR 3:RAGNOROK!”

WASABI, Nerds and Nerdettes! You know who it is.. So lets not waste any time and get right down to the Speculating!

image

“THOR: RAGNAROK!” The third and possibly final THOR Film in the franchise is near Pre-Production and is set to hit theaters sometime, Next year. That is unless they moved it around to make room for another film they may have added to the scheduale. Either way, It’s right around the corner.

Major news has dropped concerning the film in the last weeks or so. (Granted, I’m a little late in reporting on them. But I wanted ALL the facts before I dived in.) One is actual news and the other is more.. RUMOR, But both major news in their own right. Lets start with the Actual News.

CATE BLANCHETT,image

is our Villainess “HELA” Queen of the underworld and ruler of Asgardian Hell (or HEL)

image

(I sooo hope she talks like GALADRIEL Β when she’s calm, and then like..

image

“IN THE PLACE OF A DARK LORD YOU WOULD HAVE A QUEEN!!” .. That would be epic..)

Cate is a tremendous talent. She’s PERFECT for a character like HELA. When it was first rumored a few months back that she was talking with Marvel to appear in Thor. Everyone assumed she would be ENCHANTESS. But I always said, She’s gonna be HELA!

Now for the RUMOR!

image

So! It’s been rumored recently that a HUGE chunk of Plot Points for the film has been “leaked” online, according to Geek (something or other) dot com. Then a shit ton of other Geek-News sites jumped on the stories dick and swallowed it whole.. Right down to the ball sack.

I am slightly tempted to say, “Spoiler Warning: If you don’t want to know any of this bull shit, then click on another story..” But, FUCK THAT!! Their aint no SPOILERS!! We do not know if any of this shit is Actually TRUE! This is all.. Dare I say.. SPECULATION and RUMOR! And the story goes a little something like this..

Hela joins forces with Loki, in an attempt to bring about the downfall of Asgard/The Nine Realms. Aka: Ragnarok! Once THOR’s spidey sence starts to tingle.. HELA destroys Mjolnier and banishes Thor on some shit-back planet known as… Wait for it.. SA’KAAR! Whilst there, Thor is forced to become a Gladiator and fight for his freedom. (This is starting to sound somewhat familier?!) In the process, our Thunder-Buddy for life, must face off against the planets greatest warrior.. Wait for it.. HULK!! (?!)

(WHAT THE SERIOUS FUCK?!?)

image

Thats right folks.. We are getting our long awaited PLANET HULK movie.. In Thor 3?!?

Now.. As understandably cool as that may sound… It’s also FUCKING STUPID! (at least in my humble opinion) First of all, this is THOR:RAGNAROK! Not THOR:PLANET HULK! This is supposed to be about the END TIMES! The first half of the story makes total sense. HELA and Loki MUST team up. HELA destroying Mjolnier is pretty epic. The banishing part sounds really cool as well.. They lost me with the whole Gladiator and Hulk part.

I know there’s no way Marvel would be as stupid as to water down a pretty wonderful story such as PLANET HULK to squeeze into a Thor film. It doesn’t make sense! However, what does make sense is what could have happened to the Hulk. End of AGE OF ULTRON, it’s said that they “May” have found the crashed Quinn Jet he was on.. But they didn’t find Him! He could very well had been abducted by aliens or.. (Even Better) HELA herself could have captured the Hulk.

This is the part where I move away from the rumor mill.. And shimmy on over to Speculation-Ville.. I think I’ll call this part..

SPECULATIONS/ WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN: IN THOR: RAGNAROK!

First: HELA should be the one to have captured Hulk and lure him to HEL so she could use him to bring about Ragnarok. Perhaps as a tool to destroy Thor and Asgard.. OR (bare with me) Use him to be the vessel for the spirit of SURTUR!

image

Perhaps, after being defeated by Odin and his brothers a Millenia ago. Surtur is nothing more then a spirit. The Hulk would be the perfect host for the bringer of Ragnarok.

Second: This is the perfect time to broaden the Thor-Universe. Introduce more characters.. Such as, but not limited to..

image image

image image

Bromhilda aka: Valkyrie, BETA RAY BILL! Executioner and The Enchantress and perhaps maybe even, Eric Masterson Aka: Thunderstrike! All great characters.. But I’m really praying for BETA RAY BILL! He NEEDS to be in the MCU.. Like right now!

Third: Bring Kenneth Braughna back to direct.. Dear god marvel, bring him back!!!

image

Fourth: THOR. Must. Die!!

image

Yes. I’m serious. THOR HAS TO DIE! I’ll tell you why. HELA has craved one thing in all her comic existence.. The soul of The Mighty Thor! She would go to great lengths to claim it. With the None Realms in great Peril.. Thor sacrifices himself to save the day! It doesn’t have to be a gruesome death.. But he has to die! (Perhaps paving the way for a new Thor?.. Just a thought!)

image

This also gives Thor the ultimate Hero Moment! Laying his life on the line for the greater good! This also kinda fits with another part of the Rumor I mentioned earlier. The report also states that HELA would be in fact THE representation of MISTRESS DEATH in the MCU. The same Mistress Death that THANOS lusts after. Which would then make for a very interesting moment in the upcoming INFINITY WAR. The Avengers confront Thanos and HELA, and she brings forth her “undead” slave Thor, forcing him to battle his former friends! (YES, PLEASE!) Furthermore.. If HELA is to be the MCU’s Mistress Death in the INFINITY WAR.. Then perhaps, LOKI should be the Mephisto of the story as well!?

image

Whispering in Thanos’s ear and playing adviser, whilst plotting his own nefarious scheme!

Fifth: Bring the Original Thor Score from the first movie.. A film like this need to have that Epic type of score. Unfortinutly, DARK WORLD did not have that same music score. It needs to come back for this one.. (Someone get Patrick Doyle on the Phone!?!) Β If you need a reminder on how awesome that score was.. Take a moment and Listen to this..

WELL.. That’s all I got! Is there anything you folks would like to see happen in THOR 3? HIT ME UP FOR FUCKS SAKE! SUBSCRIBE TO THE BLOG!!

Until next time.. DUCES!!

All of these views and “Speculations” are based solely on this here poster!

imageSTICK will return to further the mysterious storyline set in motion in the first season. Which would also most likely be the episode(s) that will introduce us to Elektra!

image

KINGPIN needs to be here! Or at least Vanessa has to be the one pulling the strings.

He’s gotta be ONE of these mystery people. My money is the guy with his back turned. I think that might be bullseye! He’s gonna be a big surprise character. (I’m referring to the guy under Gladiator)

And most importantly… We MIGHT get, THIS!!

image

Matt’s Mom, could be introduced this season! Why would I think this? Lets see.. If you look closely at the DD poster. Down in the bottom left hand corner..
