Suicide Squad is part of the start of the larger DCU, DCCU? Well, anyway the DC comics cinematic universe films will all be tied together. So IMDB already lists Ben Affleck as Batman, and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luther, following up the much hyped Batman VS. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
This post contains spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron! Specially the last two paragraphs! You have been told, read at own risk!
Well it has been awhile since I first made a post about the Infinity Stones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). So now that we are towards the end of Marvel’s phase 2 of movies, and Age of Ultron is now out, let’s take a look at how close we are to seeing all the stones and the Infinity Gauntlet.
Although these stones are called gems, or infinity gems in the comic books, for some reason they are referred to as stones in the movie, so if I say gem a few times I apologize, old habit.
I already see a pattern, two stones each phase, equaling the six total stones Thanos needs to be omnipresent and all powerful. But what we didn’t realize until later in phase two, is another stone was in front of us the whole time!
Phase One: Space Stone
This is the first stone we really see. It is in Captain America and is part of the whole plot with Loki in Avengers. It has the power to open portals, and possible teleport its user. With the other stones it may cause omnipresence. Continue reading “INFINITY STONES IN THE (MCU) MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE: Part 2”
So Marvel is getting deeper into the plot and setting of the new cross universe (or more correctly universes) story line Secret Wars. Which, is probably not going to remain very secret since it is slowly destroying every world and all of Marvel existence will be forever changed! But, as of now, we are 2 months away from the beginning of the end, and the new beginning, or something like that. Continue reading “Marvel’s Secret Wars 2015: Discussion and Theory”
New Trailer Added! March 10th, 2015! See Bottom of post for Daredevil Trailer 2 / Motion Poster also released!
Today, Feb 4th 2015, Marvel and Netflix have released the first teaser trailer for its new show Daredevil. Based off the comic book hero of the same name, Daredevil is a blind lawyer named Matt Murdock who fights crime in court by day, and fights crime on the streets as a vigilante at night.
Daredevil Teaser Trailer 2015
Although Daredevil is blind, the same accident at youth that caused his blindness also extremely heightened all his other senses. Also Daredevil is extremely agile and has trained many combat styles.
Marvel and Netflix have announced that all episodes, around 13, will be available April 10th, 2015. I think I may pull an all night watch.
Fox has released the first look at the new Fantastic Four movie reboot as a teaser trailer. And so far it is looking hopeful. I try not to get my hopes up when it comes to Fox using Marvel characters for movies, but this seems to be going in the right direction. This almost 2 minute trailer shows a glimpse of what the heroes will look like, and a bit of how the movie will play out.
Right off the bat the trailer throws some big concepts. How did humanity get this far? Why do humans have to be so inventive and curious? And mentions with every discovery there is risk, sacrifice, and consequence. I take from this that the movie will follow a more sci fi thriller type idea as oppose to the action packed super hero movie style. Which is great to me. Fantastic Four, as long as I have read the comics, has been more about solving problems with brains and solutions than fighting their way through. This has much to do with the genius leader Reed Richards. Continue reading “Fantastic Four 2015 Trailer Review”
Well I gave my early plot guess, and now we get to see more of the villains and characters in the new 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer. It doesn’t look like we will see a huge cast of characters, so no Krang, BeeBop or Rock Steady. But according to IMDB there is at least some appearance of Baxter Stockman, the crazy scientist who turns into a fly.

The new Shredder, less ninja, more robot.
Recent rumors, supposedly started by Bleeding Cool, suggests Marvel may cancel their Fantastic Four comics to directly hurt Fox.
Okay, well first off let me say they might, but it won’t have anything to do with Fox, like many are saying. Marvel is constantly changing around the comic book lines to stay fresh and adapt. Recently, Marvel for the first time cancelled the ongoing Uncanny X-Men, which had been numbered up to #544 since 1963. Since then I don’t get suprised about anything they do.
But like many of the relaunches, would they actually do it to hurt the new Fox movie Fantastic Four reboot? I honestly believe this move would hurt Marvel and favor Fox. My out come is this.
If Marvel was to cancel the series, they would have to refund or replace every subcription to the comic book, and with collectors, stores, and online sellers, that would be quite a bit to replace. Not only that, but it would leave a hole of content for diehard FF fans, possibly causing them to wait for the movie, then go see it!
So if I am wrong and for some reason the Fantastic Four do get cancelled, it won’t be because the movie.
I would like to say real quick that I hope the movie takes advantage of the Ultimate Fantastice Four, using the four elements as a source of their powers.
Mr. Fantastic – Water
Invisible Woman – Air
Human Torch – Obviously he is flowers
The Thing – Earth
Could Marvel be going for a new darker look for Doctor Strange, and possibly an R rating? It looks promising with the recent news that Scott Derrickson will be directing it.
Scott Derrickson is currently known for writing and directing The Exorcism Of Emily Rose, and his own concept, Sinister. ( Sinister 2 is also in the works). Not only are these horror based films, take a look at his info on IMDB. Continue reading “Could Dr. Strange be a Horror Movie? Scott Derrickson to Direct Doctor Strange”
Following the news that Steven S. DeKnight (Sparticus, Buffy) will be head producer, Marvel has now confirmed that the red devil known as Daredevile/Matt Murdock has been casted. Marvel has said before that if Daredevil appears again on screen, they want to do it right. It looks like Marvel is headed in the right direction this time with Daredevil.
