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!

“A NEW HOPE… FOR THE STAR WARS MOVIE UNIVERSE”

After watching the first installment in the ‘Star Wars Story’ films, “ROUGE ONE”, and seeing how fantastic it was. I find myself very excited for the non saga films. 

For those of you who may not know what i mean by ‘non saga’. It is a term used for the SW movies that are not following the main Episode timeline. IE: Return of The Jedi, Force Awakens, and The as of yet untitled Episode 8 due out next year. Those are the saga centric SW films, and movies like Rouge One are not.. There is, however another phrase or word used for those movies.. But it escapes me at the moment.. Its not extended universe.. Ah shit! I cant think of it right now. But for now ill just refer to them as Non Saga Films or (NSF). 

I believe there is a total of  three NSF in the pipeline. Rouge One being the first. Most of them are just Rumord projects like… 
THE BOBA FETT MOVIE 

OBI WAN KENOBI (possible trilogy)

And there is one film that has been made official.. 

THE HAN SOLO (Adventures?) 

Telling the story of a young Han Solo. How he met Chewbacca and how he got The Millenium Falcon from Lando. A cast has already been settled. Most notable, we have a Han, a Lando, a female lead and Khalessi herself Emily Clarke has recently joined the lineup in an unspecified role.. We may even get some Jabba The Hut action in there as well. So all signs are pointing to success for that movie. 

What i Do want to discuss here, very quickly, is.. How Promising the future looks for the NSF, thanks to Rouge One. 

If the other films are half as good and inovative as Rouge One is.. Then i think we can look forward to a whole lot of great movies in the coming future. 

This is indeed new territory for Star Wars and Lucasfilm. Providing new and original content on a yearly or bi-yearly basis. Disney, on the other hand is used to this. Pixar and Marvel Studios being prime examples. Which leaves Lucasfilm in good hands. Especially, in the hands of Kathleen Kennedy. (The Kevin Fiege of the Star Wars universe) She has been behind Star Wars since Empire Strikes Back?!? (if im not mistaken… FACT CHECK BREAK…. Please Stand By:…

NOPE! Shes been involved since Force Awakens. And thats not a Bad start. HOWEVER! She has been involved with MANY movies of our childhood. From E.T to GOONIES, INDIANA JONES, and JURASSIC PARK just to name a few. Seriously. Look up her IMDB page.. Like a trip down memory lane. 

OH!! And the Non Saga Films are called ANTHOLOGY FILMS! anthology… Could not remember that before. 

Did you know Gale Ann Herd, Executive Producer of The Walking Dead, was a producer of the Terminator movies since 1984?… Wait.. Im getting off subject.

Anyhoo.. Rouge One, Han Solo, and maybe Obi Wan, are literal trial runs with this Extended Star Wars ‘Anthology’ Universe. And I for one, am supee hyped.. But may i say.. Forget about Boba Fett.. GIVE US A DARTH VADER MOVIE!! 

If you’ve seen Rouge One.. You understand WHY we need and deserve a Darth Vader stand alone movie! 

I think I’ve droned on long enough.. 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“I TOLD YOU SO!: ‘GOTHAM CITY SIRENS’ IS OFFICIALLY IN THE WORKS!”

I. Told. You. So! It feels so good to get something right. It doesnt happen often, but when i do get something right.. Ho boy! It feels so good! 

So.. it has been reported by ‘Hollywood Reporter’ that WB/DC Has officially proclaimed that the stand alone Harley Quinn film WILL be a “GOTHAM CITY SIRENS” movie. That, is also its title, and Suicide Squad director David Ayer.. 

Will be at the helm of this film. 

As we already know.. The Birds of Prey are going to be in the film as well.. 

And Marggot Robbie is returning as Harley Quinn 

Nothing else, concerning this particular movie has been announced as of yet. Besides the Title, who’s directing and What it is gonna be. I’ll try and fill you in as soon as anything drops. 

IN OTHER NEWS: 

DC/WB also announced that Will Smith will be returning as Deadshot for a Stand alone Deadshot movie! No official release date has been set, nor has a production date been announced. ALSO! Justice League 2 has been pushed back to allow space for Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie which should be ready to go in front of the cameras in the next year or so?! I think?! Maybe late 2017 they start on that.. We’ll see. 

That all i got, What do you folks think about all this news?  You excited for the Gotham City Sirens movie?.. 

So, until next time folks.. I TOLD YOU SO!! 😃😄👍

“ARE WE GETTING A ‘GOTHAM CITY SIRENS’ MOVIE?!?

“BREAKING NEWS!!” Sorta.. Im a little late to the, ‘Breaking News Party’

It was reported earlier yesterday that, DC/WB is in the early stages of developing a SUICIDE SQUAD spinoff, featuring, The One and Only..

HARLEY QUINN! image

Which is.. Just a bit strange for DC/WB Executives to announce so far ahead of Suicide Squad’s release. But perhaps that just shows how confident they are in not only the film, but also Margot Robbie’s performance as Harley.

Lets just hope announcing this so soon doesn’t come back and bite them on the ass!

image

According to reports, Robbie herself approached the heads of DC/WB with the idea and the writer for said project, after delving deep into the comics to research for the role. Not only falling in love with the character, but also the material!

Reports also claim that the planned project would also feature additional female characters, of the Hero and Villain persuasion. Including, but not limited to, Batgirl, The Birds Of Prey and many more that are of yet unnamed. Which could leave many to hope and Assume that the Spin-Off could actually be a..

“GOTHAM CITY SIRENS” Film.. image

IF, that is indeed the case. IF, Suicide Squad is the awesome movie it looks to be. IF, Margot’s Harley is the show stealer it looks to be.. IF! Things don’t go south and DC/WB have to retract their plans.. Then all I can say is…

THIS IS GONNA BE SO FUCKING AWESOME!! I can’t wait! CATWOMAN, POISON IVY, HARLEY QUINN, and possibly THE BIRDS OF PREY! In the same freaking movie!?!

image

What do you folks think? Is it too soon for DC/WB to make this announcement? Would you be excited for a Gotham City Sirens Movie? COMMENT BELOW!

So, Until Next Time Folks… Peace Out!

WHY I THINK THE CW NETWORK SHOULD REVAMP “THE BIRDS OF PREY” TV SHOW!

Hey ladies and gentelnerds! Allow me to take you own a little trip through time. *Que old man voice* Way back in my day! Had to be.. Oh, about… 2002, 2003 There was a Television Station that went by the name of ‘WB’. On this network, There were shows. Lets see.. ‘The Wayans Brothers’, was on its last season if memory serves me right.. There was some ‘Teenage Witch’ of sorts. A ‘Vampire Slayer’ was on its 16th season.. AND! There was a very interesting concept that came around.. Superhero centered TV shows! It started with a thing called, ‘SMALLVILLE’

image

After a season and a half of success. WB tried to repeat the formula. This time focusing on the BATMAN side of the DCU. A show called

“BIRDS OF PREY!”

image

Following the story of Barbra Gordon, now Oracle, and her training and supervision of Huntress. The daughter of Batman and Catwoman.

image

The show was very much ahead of its time. (Btw.. You can stop reading this in the old man voice!) Good stories, great action, and pretty solid acting. Unfortunately, the ratings didn’t help it get to season Two. (Like I said.. It was ahead of its time..)

BUT!! I firmly believe, The CW can revive this show.. With some Tweeking of course! ARROW has been very successful for CW. Heading into its 4th Season, already it is spawned Two Spin-off’s.. THE FLASH and the soon to come, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW!

image

image

Why not an all female superhero team like The Birds Of Prey to come out of that!? They already have few of the ladies to fill out the cast.

image

They have THE HUNTRESS. BLACK CANARY.. Or is she WHITE CANARY.. Or are there Two Canary’s?!? Whatever! And with this new show coming out, it gives them an opportunity to introduce new characters that could further help build a Birds of Prey roster. Bring back Barbra Gordon! Bring Poison Ivy! (That would be epic!) I mean.. Tell me you wouldn’t want to see this?!…

image

Every week on the CW.. BIRDS OF PREY, following ARROW! Wednesday’s at 9!.. Sounds good to me!

Thanks for reading folks! Would love to hear your thoughts, Hit me up at the usual spots! PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!

So, until next time… Peace out!

 

“CREED” MOVIE TRAILER REVIEW!

I wouldn’t call myself, a Die Hard ROCKY fan. But! I am a Fan! I have seen all of them (except the last one, ROCKY 17: ROCKY ON MARS) I do enjoy them and watch them whenever given the chance. That being said.. just judging from this trailer alone, (of course, the movie could suck major Donkey Balls..) But, just based off the trailer.. We should have gotten THIS MOVIE.. A long ass time ago! But considering that we wouldn’t have a talent like, Micheal B. Jordan starring in it.. I’m glad we’re getting the movie now.

image

Most likely taking place a few years after the last Rocky Movie, (ROCKY 26: The Quest For Mic!) “CREED” Tells the story of Apollo Creed’s, estranged Son, Adonis Creed. And showing his “Rocky-esq” rise from Nothing to Champion. The film is helmed  by the same director who filmed Michael B. Jordan in the critically  acclaimed film, “Fruitville Station” (A film in which, Many claim, should have garnered Michael an Academy  Award Nomination) These two teaming once more, could spell another chance at Gold.

image

For the average movie goer, who doesn’t really follow the happenings of upcoming films. Could have been pleasantly surprised to see Rocky Balboa himself come in toward the end of the trailer. Like, “Wait, What?! This is a Rocky Spin-off?!? That’s supposed to be Apollo’s Son?! Holy Shit!” Which was a positive for the trailer. It established itself as its own movie. Before revealing that its a part of an established franchise.

image

The movie looks like it gonna be really good. I actually hope it is. And if it is! I look forward to a rather good Trilogy.. And I do mean, TRILOGY! Lets learn from past mistakes and stop at 3! (I’m looking at you ROCKY 5-200)
