The Suicidal Tendencies of Star Wars
Mike Huckabee Knows How to Make a Pop Culture Analogy
Man of Steel In Glorious Living Color
It is amazing what one small change can do. I want to watch the entire film that way.
All New Spider-Man (In With the Old)
In a statement that surprised nobody, Kevin Feige confirmed that the new Spider-Man will be Peter Parker. I typed that sentence on April 15th. Then, I got a message that my father had died. Suddenly this did not seem all that important for me. This is why I have not … Continue Reading All New Spider-Man (In With the Old)
If I were in Marvels Shoes…
I would have Peter Parker be in the MCU first. He would be the theatrical Spider-Man. Race optional. Could be black, hispanic, asian, white, etc. He would be in the Captain America: Civil War film. Then there would be an easter egg in Spidey’s film. at some point, we would … Continue Reading If I were in Marvels Shoes…
I noticed Jeff Sneider (who has stated a 95% certainty that Peter Parker will not be white) clarified a bit on twitter where he is getting this idea. He noted that white actors are going out for the role, but agents for some of those actors have told Jeff they … Continue Reading Just Maybe…
It Won’T Be Peter Parker Maybe…?
So, I have been pretty firm in my statement that Marvel and Sony are not going to switch out Peter for Miles in the Spider-Man franchise. There is this rumor from late last week. “This is not set in stone guys, but I’m telling you right now: Spider-Man is not … Continue Reading It Won’T Be Peter Parker Maybe…?
There Are No “Ifs” Here
So, I am now starting to see talk on twitter and articles like this. I am not really sure where this “If they make Miles the Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man” idea is coming from. I like Miles. I think his run thus far has been terrific and I hope to … Continue Reading There Are No “Ifs” Here
And it turns out I was wrong. The Marvel/Sony deal did not put an end to Sinister Six movie plans. They are delayed, but Sony apparently plans to proceed without Marvel’s input to boot. And this is just a terrible idea. First, the idea that their next Spider-Related film would … Continue Reading Sinister Ideas…
Does Whatever A Spider Can
So, Marvel’s corner of the internet broke last night. In a big announcement Marvel and Sony noted they have joined forces to re-invigorate the Spider-Franchise. While confirming my feeling that there was no deal in place when it was “leaked that the deal was done”, they did sort of pull it … Continue Reading Does Whatever A Spider Can
Aiming For the Fantastic
So a trailer has hit for August’s Fantastic Four Reboot. Doing a complete origin reboot with Doctor Doom as an angry hacker and a young Reed Richards… seemed…I don’t know…pointless. Hiring Josh Trank was one of the more interesting choices. None of the acting choices really thrilled me…and there was … Continue Reading Aiming For the Fantastic
With Warning (Calvary, 2014)
To be honest, I expected Calvary to be a somewhat plodding movie. I thought it would be “Gee, it was good, but kinda slow.” Instead, it begins with a bang. Father James (Brendan Gleeson) is in the confessional, but instead of a confession, he is given an unrepentant threat to … Continue Reading With Warning (Calvary, 2014)
Who Needs Who
So, yesterday, there were reports originating with Latino Review that Sony had a done deal with Marvel that gave Marvel the use of Spider-Man in the Avengers: Infinity Wars films. People were excited. Sony Denies this. There are two possibilities at play (that are the most likely). Sony denied it … Continue Reading Who Needs Who
So, if you told me a movie about a guy in a car trying to get a cement foundation poured within the next twenty four hours would be a super compelling watch? I would have walked away thinking you were nuts. And yet, somehow, Director Steven Knight manages to make … Continue Reading Locked In
