Here’s Spidy!

The new trailer for MARVEL’s Cap. America Civil War just dropped, and it was full of really cool action scenes, give us a more in-depth look at our characters and story outline. It also gave us our first look at the new Spider-Man, and he looks horrible!

Screen_Shot_2016-03-10_at_12.05.18_PM.0

I was so excited to see Spider-Man and even the way he was introduced was weak. Then the look of the costume and the really bad CGI. It looks like a cross between a bad cosplay and the Spider-Man from the 1970’s live-action show.

spiderman1-1

 

Plus his eyes do some weird motion like he’s deadpool or something. The Sam Raimi Spider-Man looked better then this. Plus the last Spider-Man suite was perfect. This just looks like a hot mess, and I hope I HOPE this is not the finish product.

Really I think putting Spider-Man in this film was just way to say sorry for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

We’ll see if they give us anymore looks at this new Spider-Man, and if those will be any improvement to this disaster.

Ant-Man Movie Review

Ant-Man_Animated_Teaser_Poster.gif

Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd was the MARVEL movie everyone was worried about. Could the studio that made the unknown comic Guardians of the Galaxy  into one of the best MARVEL movies do the same with Ant-Man?

The answer is yes, Ant-Man is right there with the 1st Thor movie and Winter Solder. Its funny and full of action. What’s best about this movie is that it makes sense why the Avengers are not helping out to stop the villain.

Hank Pym must stop his former protege from creating a the shrinking process and put it in the hands of Hydra. When Scott Lang says that they should call the Avengers, Pym said that he tried to keep Stark’s father way from his invention, so he won’t just hand it over to his son. Makes sense, plus Pym wants to keep this on the down low.

We do get to see one of the new Avengers Falcon,  who Scott calls “The Pelican”. Falcon and Ant-Man get into a fight, Scott cracking jokes the majority of the fight.

The shrinking scenes with Ant-Man are like watching a 360 degrees camera.

Everyone in the film do a terrific job, Michael Pena is hilarious as Pym’s former prison buddy.

Michael Douglas is great as Hank Pym. What surprises me the most is how CGI has advanced. When we see young Michael Douglas in the 80’s it’s like the went back in time to get Gordon Gecko. If only TRON: LEGACY has the same CGI for young Jeff Bridges.

Corey Stoll from House of Cards plays such a diabolical bad guy. Bent on revenge against Pym. Although its sort of a sad story cause its the process of his shrinking formula that is making him crazy. Even though Stoll does not become The Yellow Jacket till the very end of the film, his fight scene with Pym is awesome!

Evangeline Lilly and Paul Rudd have a good chemistry on screen. Although her character does little in the film, all she does is train Scott to fight using his Ant-Man strength. I hope in the Sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp that her character is more fleshed out.

Co-written by Rudd and Adam McKay, and you can tell. The comedic timing of the film is spot on, and it works cause you have a cast that knows both comedy and drama.

Towards the end we get a quick line that sounds a lot like Spider-Man. Falcon is looking for Scott, to have him join the new Avengers.

And like every MARVEL movie we get an after-the-credit-scene  of Captain America: Civil War. Falcon has found Bucky and tell Steve that Tony can’t know, but that he knows a guy that could help.

CUT TO BLACK

ANT-MAN WILL RETURN

So that’s my review on MARVEL’s Ant-Man. It was nothing like what I thought it would be, I really every aspect of this film. There’s wasn’t ever a point where the film just lost me. If I had to rank my top favorite MCU movies here’s what they would be:

  1. Captain America: Winter Solder
  2. THOR
  3. ANT-MAN
  4. Guardians of the Galaxy
  5. Actually, I don’t have a #5 yet, maybe Civil War will make the list?

 

 

Finally! The Age of Ultron Trailer I’ve been waiting for!

ageofultron

After all the dark bruiting trailer we’ve been given, that’s just the same footage over and over. We finally get a trailer that was fun, with humor and action and not all DARK KNIGHT.

It sums up all what you need to know about the film, gives you good look all the characters, shows us Ultron before his upgrade, we see the hulk buster suit, cool action scenes. That is what they should have given us from the beginning, or at least after the the teaser came up.

Does this make me more excited to see the film, no. However I will see the film and hope that there’s a trailer for STAR WARS: FORCE AWAKENS.

NEW Avengers 2 Trailer…cool

tumblr_mw7ih770dy1qls63ao1_400

MARVEL just dropped a new trailer for the film AVENGERS 2: AGE OF ULTRON, and its OK.

I mean look, the first trailer was fun, the 2nd trailer was the same trailer but it gave us a funny opening. I also felt that the 2nd trailer told us to much of some parts of the story.

I wasn’t blown away from this trailer, It showed me nothing that made me go, “Oh wow!” At least we didn’t get that damn Pinocchio song again.

Summary of the trailer

We hear Ultron, we see him talk about how he doesn’t think much of the human race, which is what we got in the other trailers.

We see Tony Stark talk about how he build Ultron and talk about how important the Avengers are, Seen it and seen it.

Then some distractions of cities…again.

Then we see in one scene that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are bad guys, but then we see that Scarlet Witch is fighting with The Avengers against Ultron’s army. Telling us that they will infact be good at the end of this film.

tumblr_ndvjpwRlwc1tv7tl2o1_r2_500

So the plot of the film is that a bay guy, who is connected to one of the Avengers, gets super powers then builds an army to destroy the human race.

Well that sound’s like a rather, wait a MINUTE!

The first Avengers movie was about a bad guy who had connections with another Avengers who gets super powers and an army to destroy the human race.

How much do you wanna bet that the ending is them destroying Ultron and by that deactivates his robot army.

So if you liked the first Avengers movie then you’ll love this film, because it’s the same movie with darker undertones.

Plus they whole Vision sneek peek at the end, I honestly went, “Oh my Vision.”

It’s nothing, I’m people who don’t now comics were like, “What was that?”

Avengers-Age-of-Ultron-Trailer-3-Vision-Eyes

So was I BLOWN AWAY by this trailer. No, not even close. I’m more excited about the possibility of a STAR WARS trailer being played before this movie!

“AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.” Ep.6 Spoiler Review

agents-of-shield

In this episode we get to learn a bit more about Ward and his past. We see his older brother once again, and you wonder who’s the lesser of two evils in the family?

This episode focused a lot around relationships:

Sky and Ward

tumblr_nb5mf7lzEF1tcbchho1_r1_500

Ward and his brother

Mockingbird and her ex-husband

tumblr_ne6xwiLIBV1sh40dyo1_500

The US Government and SHIELD

tumblr_n3u4a4AhDC1qddteyo1_500

One of the characters I’m interested in seeing how they progress as the season continues is Gen. Glenn Talbot. He’s a huge HULK villain, and he was ruined in the horrible HULK film, and I want to see if later on we see if he becomes a bad guy or if they change this story arc and he does end up working with SHIELD.

The main plot of the episode is that HYDRA kills people at a UN meeting and claim they are SHIELD agents. So Coulson makes a deal with Ward’s brother, who is a US Senator, that if he announces that SHIELD is good and HYDRA is bad he will give Ward over to him.

Now Coulson knows that Ward’s brother is not a good person, but he needs him if SHIELD is going to defeat HYDRA. Also Ward’s brother tells Coulson that he didn’t hurt his little brother, he clams Ward was the one who did it. If you look at Coulson you can tell that he most likely doesn’t believe him or he just doesn’t care.

Then we get this cool scene where Ward’s brother goes on LIVE TV and says that SHIELD is good and that the US Government must work with SHIELD. That scene is Intertwined with Ward’s transfer and his escape. Now he kills some soldiers and looks VERY pissed off! So Will he continue to be a bad guy or is trying to turn over a new leaf?

I’m so excited to see what they do with the midseason episode and if the MARVEL announcements will change the course of the show?

“AGE OF ULTRON” new footage!

After all the news MARVEL dropped on us yesterday, last nights episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD gave us a new clip from AGE OF ULTRON. It was part a scene shown at this years COMIC CON where we see the whole team, including Rhodey and Marie hill (but no Falcon?), and there’s also some mystery woman sitting next to THOR. From what I’ve read online is that it’s not Natalie Portman, and they are keeping her hidden in this new clip.

What’s so refreshing about this clip is that we get to see THE AVENGERS laugh and relax as a team together. I know some people were complaining that the teaser trailer was to dark, so this may calm them down. It was a really funny clip and just makes me more excited to see this film!

The rest of the clip is just a rehash of the teaser with a few new clips of LOKI’s staff and showing the infinity stone.

What do you think of this new footage? Leave your COMMENTS and RANT away!

MARVEL Movie Updates!

With DC’s big roll out announcements a few weeks back, MARVEL has fired back hard! This may be because of the leaked Age of Ultron trailer we got, but the big MARVEL Hollywood press event has given us some KICK ASS news!

tumblr_mw7ih770dy1qls63ao1_400

Its official that Loki’s staff does contain one of the gems that was talked about in GUARDIANS. I know many speculated that it was and now we know for a fact that it is one.

They also showed some live-action footage of the infinity gauntlet, which we got a glimpse of in the first THOR movie. But from what I read we see that THANOS is holding it. Now this many just be a tease to foreshadow whats to come and not an actual movie scene.

We got the title to AVENGERS 3, AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, which obviously tell us that the infinity stones and possibly the GUARDIANS will be huge part of that film. Which worries me because I fear that’s to many characters thrown into one movie, but I’m thinking the same for AVENGERS 2 so we’ll see. They will break up AVENGERS 3 into two separate films, May 4, 2018 is Part I and May 3, 2019 is part 2.

AVENRES 3

We got the official DOCTOR STRANGE logo. I just want to say that NO official announcement was made that Benedict Cumberbatch is playing DOCTOR STRANGE. Which means ether he’s not, or he’s in negotiations.

DOC

I think we all guessed what the title to Captain America 3 was going to be.

CAP3

Chris Evens and Robert Downey Jr. made an appearance, which many hope they would. Kevin Feige did say that the CIVIL WAR film will be different from the comic but it will about the superhuman registration act.

Probably one of the biggest news MARVEL gave out was the casting of Chadwick Boseman as BLACK PANTHER.

PANTHER

It’s already rumored that the character that Andy Serkis is playing is a person from the BLACK PANTHER comics so maybe the rumors are true. Chadwick Boseman was a name that was thrown out of the role, I liked him in 42, I heard he was good in both GET ON UP and DRAFT DAY so I have faith that he’ll do a great job in the role!

They released some concept art for BLACK PANTHER and its very similar to how he looks in the comics. Kevin Feige did say that we will see BLACK PANTHER in costume in CAP. 3 and that he will be an influential character in the next AVENGERS movies.

PANTHER2

Among some other news we got the title and logo for:

10750102_686492974799061_1034688637391969280_o

Will this film lead to the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY teaming up with THE AVENGERS for INFINITY WAR? THANOS will obviously be the big villain in the film with hopefully Karen Gillan returning as NEBULA.

THOR

I wasn’t a huge fan of THOR 2, the first one is still one of my favorite MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE movies. I have to wait and see what happens in AGE OF ULTRON and that THOR storyline.

CAPMARVEL

INHUMANS

Now the INHUMANS story may be connected with what’s going on right now on AGENTS OF SHIELD, but that all fan rumors right now. Not much was given on this film, but again they did say more news to come.

Look out for tonight’s episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD, a new full AGE OF ULTRON trailer to be shown with all new footage. I’m sure the trailer will ether be up later tonight or tomorrow for those who will miss it.

So what do you think about this major MARVEL movie drop? Leave your COMMENTS below and RANT away!

“AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.” EP.5 Spoiler Review

agents-of-shield-season-2-poster-107286

With episode 5 of AGENTS OF SHIELD we get a mixture of stories.

1. Sky’s father, played by Kyle MacLachlan, is some mad scientist who may or may not be an alien. I’m a huge fan of MacLachlan but I just felt like his acting was a bit hokey. Obviously he’s a nut and a killer, and I’m interested in seeing where his story goes.

2. Simmons’ cover being blown, and the introduction of Mockingbird or as I like to call her our Black Widow-est character.

tumblr_ndukm2C1q31rhwh2po7_250tumblr_ndukm2C1q31rhwh2po4_250

Actress Adrianne Palicki is not a stranger to comic book based TV shows (AQUAMAN, SMALLVILLE and WONDER WOMAN). What bothered me about this story is that we had this whole plot of Simmons’ being the mole and learning all about HYDRA’s secrets, but now she’s back and really she learned nothing that is helpfully to taking down HYDRA. I really would have liked her see her continue working for HYDRA and maybe possibly have been brained washed into being a HYDRA agent and having Fritz help snap her back hence recovering himself in the process.

3. Coulson and his writings, and will we see him become a bad guy only to become himself again? Only the midseason episode will tell!

5373ae3caffd8f73755f249c_coulson_2

4 HYDRA, we know they want the object Sky’s father stole, but if they didn’t have it how did they create the stuff that killed the NAVY officers at the party? They said it was similar to what the object is made out of, but if so how did HYDRA get it? Was it from the Absorbing Man? Ether way I still want to know how Kraken is not an elderly man.

hydragif

5. This is my favorite story, the Hannibal Lecter/Clarice-est scenes with Sky and Ward. Ward is by far my favorite character in the series and the one with the less screen time. Every time he makes an appearance its chilling. You know he’s a killer and traitor to everyone, but you almost want to believe him when he says he’s changed. Does he really feel sorry. or is it all just more lies? Again I hope he escapes in the midseason episode and ether becomes a good or a bad guy.

This episode was a breath of fresh air, I want this show to be more of a spy thriller series in the same vein of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., MISSION IMPOSSIBLE and THE AVENGERS.

Benedict Cumberbatch as DOCTOR STRANGE

tumblr_mw7ih770dy1qls63ao1_400

Today MARVEL and DISNEY sent an email out saying that tomorrow they were gonna announce some big news at an event in California. Many speculated that it would be more AVENGERS footage, also MARVEL said they were gonna show some more footage for AGE OF ULTRON after this weeks episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD.

Another guesses many people came up with was that they were gonna show ether Ant-Man footage or announced who will be playing DOCTOR STRANGE.

ds2

Well according to DEADLINE Benedict Cumberbatch is playing DOCTOR STRANGE. Now there has not been any official announcement from MARVEL on whether this is true or not, but Cumberbatch’s name was one of the contenders to play the role of STEPHEN STRANGE, which got a call out cameo in WINTER SOLDER.

Benedict-Cumberbatch-Wink-Jimmy-Kimmel-R-Kelly

Other names that were thrown out were Jared Leto, Johnny Depp, and Joaquin Phoenix. One actor that I knew really wanted to play the part was Patrick Dempsey, he’s a fan of the character and I could see him in the role.

Cumberbatch though is on a hot streak with SHERLOCK, STAR TREK, and now his potential Oscar best actor nomination for THE IMITATION GAME. I can see why MARVEL and DISNEY would wan’t to go with him, one he’s a terrific actor and second he was one of those iconic voices We saw, or better yet heard, that in THE HOBBIT.

detail (1)

Again though MARVEL has not officially announced that Cumberbatch is DOCTOR STRANGE, but if they do there’s still another thing to consider. Will a DOCTOR STRANGE movie work, or will it flop?
