This review is for fun and games. I try not to take my comics and movies too serious, but love talking about it. – Cookston Igou
X-Men Apocalypse is set to release May 27th, 2016. And so far it is not looking to great. This is coming from someone who grew up loving X-Men comics and cartoons. Hey I even tried to like the previous movies, but besides X-Men First Class, I haven’t been impressed to say the least.
So what is everything wrong so far with this new X-Men movie? This time, we don’t even have to wait for it to come out to find errors. The first error with Apocalypse doesn’t even start with this movie! It is the credit scene at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past. It is suppose to be a young Apocalypse with four horsemen behind him. And all I can think while he builds pyramids with modern Egypt in background is when the hell is this suppose to take place!
You can clearly see modern Egypt in the background of this screenshot image. Then he is young, and in the comics Apocalypse is ancient, and lived in Ancient Egypt. But then we see the horsemen. The four horsemen of Apocalypse is part of his story, but there are problems here too. Ancient Egypt is said to have smaller horses than modern times, and mostly only used them for chariots. Oh and the horsemen don’t come into play until he creates them as full on adult villain Apocalypse. Continue reading “X-Men Apocalypse Movie: Early Review and Pictures”
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”
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.
After popping up in the end credits for Avengers, everyone is expecting Thanos to be the major villain in Avengers 3. But, we will get a look at him even sooner in Guardians of the Galaxy. And today we found out who is most likely playing him not only in Guardians, but in future Marvel movies as well. Josh Brolin is set to play Thanos.
