ICYMI: Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin Announce “SAM and TWITCH” and “CASTLE ROCK” Projects!

Earlier this evening on Kevin Smith’s Youtube Channel, He and ‘FATMAN ON BATMAN’ co-host Marc Bernardin 

announced their new upcoming jobs. (Video can be seen at the end of this here article) 
For the better part of a few months and on in to june or july, highly regarded movie/tv critic and reviewer featured in major publications, Most recently the L.A Times (a job he just recently left) Marc Bernardin has been apart of the Writers room for the upcoming Stephen King HULU Series 

A series said to be a unification of the Stephen King Universe. Which could mean characters from King’s numerous works could coexist together.. Which to me sounds like a Stephen King version of “ONCE UPON A TIME..” (The Fairy Tale show on ABC) But at this point not much more is known about the project, but Marc’s involvnent could give me a reason to order Hulu. 

Kevin’s big announcement revealed that He and BBC America could be partnering on a SAM and TWITCH series.

For those of you who dont know. Sam and Twicth was (or is) a spin off series of SPAWN. 

Following the Supernatural huntng NYPD detectives.

Now, Smith himself states that a deal hasnt been fully confirmed. According to Smith BBC America approached him revealing that they had the rights to the characters for a live action presentation. Asked if he had any ideas, Smith presented an approach to the series the executives seemed to like and appreciate. Smith says a first draft of the Pilot is completed and is ready to be handed in and a full series ground work or ‘bible’ if you will, should be completed by him in the next couple of weeks to a month. 

It will be interesting to see how he will be doing this at the same time as he is set to (hopefully) begin pre-production of the “JAY AND SILENT BOB: REBOOT” film. 

No word on how involved Todd McFarlane is with this project.. But the idea of Kevin Smith spinning his magic in the McFarlane Spawn-Verse is really exciting! I hope things work out for Kevin and this series. So, fingers crossed folks! 

Heres the video i promised.. 


So what do you folks think? Are you excited for these two projects? Hit me up! Comment Below! 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

NETFLIX AND CHILL: Binge Watching ‘Marvel’s: IRON FIST’ (Season 1 Review) 

Greetings Ladies and Gentelnerds! Welcome to a new instalment of “Netflix and Chill” After a very long wait, we finally got our Last Defender. 

Marvel/Netflix launched “IRON FIST” This week and I’ve just completed my 3 day bingefest. (I do have a job so.. Thats how i binge. 3 episode’s a night got it done.) 

THE STORY: After being thought long dead, Danny Rand returns to his Home in New York and his Buisness, ‘Rand Enterprise’. Now a skilled master of Kung Fu and the Newly minted Iron Fist, Danny must battle the evil Hand that infiltrated his families company from the inside. 

The Story is not, oddly enough, the strongest thing about this show. Yet, somehow, everyone made it work. The characters and the actors that portrayed them, made it all work. Most of the Subplots helped make things a little more interesting. For example, While Danny was trying to sue for the rights to his company, Colleen’s cage fighting story was more intresting and intriguing. The storytelling had its ups and downs. Not completely solid. But there are several moments that keep you glued in for the next episode. 

THE CAST: A great cast! Seriously. The cast was great. Everyone played thier parts peefectly. Characters such as Ward and Joy Mechum could have easily been a pair of Karen Page’s. Characters that could have easily been annoying and uninteresting, But the actors made them work and i actually gave a crap about them. Jennifer Hendwick’s Colleen Wing was a saving grace for most of the episodes. Rosario Dawson’s Claire aka Night Nurse.. Pointless. But, whatever! She was necessary in the fact that they needed to tie everything together. But overall, a great and solod cast.

THE POSITIVES: 

Unlike the other Netflix shows, Iron Fist’s story is very linear and straight forward. It doesnt take a break for any actual unnecessary plot detours. The subplots tie in with the main story nicely. Again, The Colleen Wing character was a huge bright spot for the show. The action was great and well choreographed. Finn Jones was a great Danny Rand. 

THE NEGATIVES: 

The actual ‘Iron Fist’ is way too under utilised. When you calim to be as skilled as Danny Does, You should be smart enough to use the fist any and at all times. (Mental Note: This version of Danny Rand is still a noob at the whole, Being an ‘Iron Fist’ thing, that one can let the show slide for the way the character behaves and fights.) Speaking of the Iron Fist, he should have been able to use more then the one hand. Granted, he himself claims he had not completed his training with the Iron Fist. So he is still unaware of all that he can do with it. But its something that they should have included in the story. The Fights, as well choreographed as they were, The editing did not help. At this point.. Daredevil seems like a more capable fighter then Danny Rand. The directing and editing of the fights took too much away from what was going on. I feel, personally, The people behind Iron Fist should have contacted or used the same fight choreographers of Daredevil season 2 in combination with their own team, to put together much better Fights. They put too much time and focus on the “I am Danny Rand” part of the story. That ‘Mystery’ could have been solved in a lot less episodes. They put too much time into that. Not giving us a better look in to Danny’s life in Kunn’ Lun with Proper flashbacks was a missed opprotunity. Claire Temple.. Two too many episodes. No offence, i understand her importance to the Defenders, but she was there for too long in my opinion.

(THEORY: Claire will be to THE DEFENDERS, what Agent Coulson was to THE AVENGERS. Thats right! Im calling it from now. That one thread that tied all the Netflix shows and the Defenders together. Will die and that will be the catalyst that really unites the Defenders together.. There.. I said it!) 

Final Negative. Iron Fist suffers as the others did.. A somewhat weak end. Non of the shows have had a strong close to the end of thier season like Daredevil season 1 did. DD season 2, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist all suffer from weak to unimpressive finishes. Despite having such a great run.

OVERALL: Marvel/Netflix do it again. Solid performances and a solid, straight forward storyline and great action helps Iron Fist push it to being one of the best shows in the lot. Nothing will ever top DD seasons 1&2. But Iron Fist comes pretty close. I give MARVEL’S IRON FIST season 1 a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟💫 71/2 out of 10. A Must Binge!  

Have you folks completed your viewing of Iron Fist? What are your thoughts?

Until Next time folks.. Peace out!

“200 BLOGS AND COUNTING!Whats Happened and Whats To Come..”

This article marks my 200th Blog on this here website.
200.. Wow. 

I had posted on my twitter page the fact that i was 2 posts away from 200, and i asked ‘What should I write About in My 200th Blog?’ I received great suggestions and ideas. 

‘Is DC’s Cinematic Universe Doomed to fail?’ 

‘A top 10 list of most anticipated 2017 movies.’

Just to name a few. Those are ideas i will be discussing in future blogs. But there was one idea i wanted to use today. 

“Talk about the future.” 

A retrospective if you will.

Well.. I started this blog in, oh about, 1803. Jefferson was looking to make peace with the British and Benjamin Franklin was still being a douche bag about the whole lightning bullshit!.. So i thought i’d put my thoughts and feelings down on this electronic parchment. 

Ok.. That was an outdated joke, but i took a swing at it. I think it was a base hit.. Right? 

Anywhoo. I did start this blog, to really open myself up and express my feeling on things that i actually gave a shit about. Granted, I’m not on par with the big guys like Collider News, Moviepiolt, ComicBookMovie News, Heroic Hollywood just to name a few. I dont jump on the most up to date Geek News. I dont go for the “Click Bate” stuff. I try and be as honest as i can and be on point with what i write about. I’m not first on the scene and i am not chuck full of exclusives. 

BUT! some how, some way. I’ve gotten some peoples attention. As it stands, TheMarvelIncBlog has gotten a good share of views and followers. Starting back in 2015

Stats that grew a good deal in 2016

So far.. 2017 is looking just as good, 

I Have a great set of followers, 

So straight up, THANK YOU ALL SO VERY VERY MUCH! I appreciate any and all support!

This is where the blog stands at the moment. 11,009 Views, and 6,681 visitors. I am truly greatful!

So whats the plan for the future? 

My dream is to be a Comic Book Writer and Movie Screenwriter. So my hope is that my Fan Fiction Stories would get me noticed by the big two (Marvel and DC) still keeping my fingers crossed on that part. So, fan fictions are still going to be a feature on the blog. 

More Movie Reviews. And.. Lets face it.. I ain’t changing a damn thing. Everythings still gonna be the same. Like they say, “If It aint broke.. Dont fix it!” 

But i will ask you all this.. WHAT DO YOU THINK I SHOULD ADD OR TAKE OUT FROM THE BLOG? Hit me up! 

Thx for reading! heres to another 200! 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“DC/WB’S ‘THE FLASH’ Movie Hits Another Speed Bump!”

WB recently announced that ‘The Flash’ Movie is headed for a Page One Script Re-Write. Just Months before they were scheduled to start filming for a 2018 release. That means, anything that they had before when they first announced the Flash Movie a few years ago, is now garbage! 

Which leaves me, and many others in my position to wonder..

WHAT THE SERIOUS FUCK WB!?!

Do they not know what the fuck they are doing?! 

First, they give us the most bull shitiest cameo in BVS: Dawn Of Justice 

Then the first director and screenwriter steps away due to Creative Differences. 

They bring in another screenwriter to fix up the script.

SDCC comes around and they announce their new director and they are full speed ahead with The Flash. Everything is a Go!

CREATIVE DIFFERENCES! Forces new Flash Director to depart from project..

*SIGH* 

Now.. Months before everything is to go before cameras. They announce they are going for a Page One rewrite of the whole damn script! 

For fucks sake.. 

Give Greg Berlanti and his people The Flash

He makes Gold on the small screen on a weekly basis. He KNOWS the character and the world. Make this a trial run with the Flash, and if it pays off.. Partner him with Geoff Johns and let them run the whole shebang! 

Its so damn simple! 

And on a real quick side note: I really like Ezra Miller. I cant wait for his Flash in Justice League, 

I just find the whole.. Jokey, jokey aspect of Barry Allen. I didnt grow up with Allen. Wally West was my Flash growing up. He was the jokester of the team and was a lot more of the loosy goosey kind of guy. I don’t know Barry Allen to be that kind of guy. But, it is what it is. And I still cant wait for it.

DC/WB is a mess right now.. I’ll address that in a future blog. However, I really hope they get Flash up on his feet as soon as possible.  

What do you folks think about this mess? Share your thoughts and comments below. 

So, until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“REALLY LATE GEEK NEWS”: ‘Marvel’s INHUMANS Becoming TV Series!’ 

As the title states.. This is really late geek news! 

Not long ago, Marvel had announced that the planned Imhumans film would instead be a TV series. With a limited imax film release that would then be followed by an 8 episode miniseries run on ABC. 

Also announced, although more recently, The Inhumans showrunner will be current Marvel/Netflix’s IRON FIST showrunner Scott Buck.

My feelings?: Dissapointed that we wont get The Inhumans as an actual straight forward Movie. But.. If you think about it. Its probably for the best. Agents of Shield gave us a lot of information on the Inhumans over the past couple of years. But its all been just the tip of the Iceberg. The Inhuman Royal Family storyline runs a whole lot deeper then a single movie could tell. I think an extended run on the small screen would be better suited for them. And as long as we fans tune in.. Maybe We will get more then 8 episodes. I for one, am very hopeful for The Inhuman’s future. 

What do you folks think? Are you excited for this new turn for The Inhumans? Hit me up and let me know. Thx so much for reading.

Until next time folks.. Peace out.

“NETFLIX AND CHILL: BINGE WATCHING MARVEL’S “LUKE CAGE” SEASON 1 REVIEW!”

MY GOD! Marvel/Netflix does it again!

Luke Cage was amazing. From start to finish. The acting was top notch. Harlem felt like a character and was well represented. They did a lot of things right, and some things wrong.. But we’ll get to that later. 

(SPOILERS AHEAD.. youve been warned.)

THE STORY: “Given superstrength and durability by a sabotaged experiment, a wrongly accused man escapes prison to become a superhero for hire.”

  When a group of Young thugs look to get rich quick and rob Harlem Ganster Cottonmouth of his Hammertech weapons. Luke Cage is dragged in to center stage to stand up to the crime that is choking Harlem from the inside out. Forcing him to come to terms with Who He is. Who He was and Who He will be. 

The story is not the Strongest story ever. But for what it was representing, It served its purpose. The plot itself isnt what makes you want to come back for each and every episode.. Its the characters.

THE CAST: The cast of actors and the characters they portrayed was the absolute best thing about Luke Cage. 

Mike Colter first and foremost. Taking what he did in Jessica Jones and expanding on it ten-fold, Mike was phenomenal. He carried the character with such sincerity and pride. During filming of the show, The African American community was dealing with a lot of social issues. Which translated very well with the show, all thanks to Mike’s Luke Cage. It was perfect. 

Mahershala Ali’s Cottonmouth was brilliant to say the least. Many would shrug The character off because of the lack of physical threat he poses to Luke. But! I found the character to be very intriguing. He had depth, he had flaws. He had character. I put him at the same level as Wilson Fisk.. Or at least one step below. But he comes very close. 

Rosario Dawson returns as Claire (aka: Night Nurse) not only as a Thread for the Netflix Universe, But as a good supporting character. It was great seeing a familiar face. She served her purpose very well. I was however a tad bit disappointed with how she was utilized within the show. I’ll get to that later.

Theo Rossi as Shades. A great actor who portrayed the character very well. I enjoyed his presence on screen. I look forward to his future in season 2. 

Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dallard. Alfre is pure acting talent. She is a force of nature. She plays Mariah with full conviction. However.. The writing for the character wasnt the best.. But Alfre did the best with what she was given and took it to the end zone. (more on her later.) 

Simone Cook as Misty Knight was brilliant. I liked every minute of her on screen. Again, the script didnt help much. But Simone got the job done. And i got really hyped when they showed her at the end with Her full on Fro like in the comics. I hope she keeps it for season 2!

The Biggest surprise out of Luke Cage was this man right here.. Erik LaRay Harvey as Willis Stryker aka: Diamondback. Coming in toward the end of the series. He completely stole the show.. He took the role and devoured it with such vigor. They left a huge cliff hanger at the end of the season with Diamondback, so I hope they bring him back and use him even more and a little more better. He was great. 

THE POSITIVES: Again. The acting was the best thing about the show. Strong cast on all fronts. The great easter eggs and nods to the entire MCU was so much fun. The action was well done. 

THE NEGATIVES: The script. Its not very strong. The events within were the stories saving grace. (Entering Major Spoilers Territory) The Death of Cottonmouth was by far the worst thing they could do. He had become a great villain and a compelling character, and they had his cousin Mariah (Alfre Woodard) kill him during a huge mental breakdown. Therefore replacing him as the ‘villain’ of the show behind Diamondback. I felt they didnt properly give her enough character to be of importance. She felt very one dimensional. Her corrupt polotician was very one note throughout her story arc. So her transition to main villain was a little disappointing for me. Diamondback was a very good villain towards the end. But the show runners plan to hide him until the end was an ok idea.. But hidding him for so long kinda backfired, at least for me. They could have at least teased a little more of him besides his name every so often. A voice over a phone or a shadowed apperance here or there. Something to fully implant his presence more. But maybe thats just me. Lastly, why are they using Claire as a love interest in this show? She would have been just as fine as the friend. Luke and Misty Knight would have been a fine romance. Why force the Claire angle? Whatever.. Just didnt like that too much. 

OVERALL: With elements of Daredevil season 1 and Jessica Jones season 1 add some very soulful R&B tracks and a Badass hero with compelling characters and you got yourself a recipe of awesomeness! I loved Luke Cage, flaws and all. I give Marvel’s LUKE CAGE season 1 a score of ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 7/10 a Must Binge! 

So, what did you folks think of Luke Cage? Let me know your thoughts.

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!
