Thor vs. Loki 2

Thor: The Dark World will have some Thrones-esque tonation reportedly, as Thrones¬†executive producer Alan Taylor directed it. ¬†Lemme tell ya anything Thrones related, and I’m all for it.

SPOILERS:

SDCC’s¬†Thor sizzle reel concluded with Loki severing Thor’s right hand. ¬†Which run’s obvious comparisons to the Kinglsayer himself, Ser Jaime Lannister.

Quote1I can’t say too much more about it. But I will tell you that’s not the worst thing that he has to worry about along the way,Quote2 said Hemsworth.

Honestly if you aren’t a Thrones¬†fan by now I’m just gonna throw this out there but, something is wrong with you. ¬†@kevfeige #themanhimself ¬†is said to be a rampant Thrones fan and I’m not gonna hold it against the guy. ¬†It’s a quality show.

Guardians 3

Marvel’s panel at SDCC¬†primarily showcased an ensemble Guardians of the Galaxy cast including: Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, Chris Pratt and Djimon Hounsou. ¬†The Avenger’s 2 will be titled¬†Avengers: Age of Ultron,¬†which let’s be totally honest is multitudes better than Zack Snyder managed to do:

Albert Einstein himself¬†plans on bringing depth and meaning to his¬†Batman/Superman team up-film,¬†so he titled the film: ¬†Superman vs. Batman. ¬†The guy’s clearly a genius. ¬†Why¬†Warner Bros.¬†keeps hiring a man who’s “best film” garnered a¬†56%¬†on¬†rottentomatoes, is baffling. ¬†As a matter of fact, the guy’s¬†LAST THREE FILMS¬†averaged a blunderous¬†43%¬†on the oft-referenced¬†meta-critic-website. ¬†Now, I’m no rocket scientist. ¬†To be certain. ¬†But words like¬†fail, and¬†baddie; spring to mind.

UPDATE: Actors Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling are reportedly in front-running for a rebooted Caped Crusader.

UPDATE:

Vin Diesel will voice Groot.

Bradley Cooper may be Rocket Raccoon.

Despicable-Me-2-1

The summer is upon us my dear friends and with it comes San Diego Comic-Con, and Despicable Me 2:

The first one got an 81% on rottentomatoes.  Which is better than any film Zack Snyder has ever made.  Ever.

Ant-Man

Marvel’s promise to “keep taking risks” ended them up with an Ant-Man¬†film. ¬†How pumped were YOU when you saw “Ant-Man“? ¬†You weren’t. ¬†Disney recently announced that Marvel Studios’ Phase Three will kick off in the summer of 2016:¬†releasing films on — July 8 2016, May 6 2016, and May 5 2017. ¬†Ant-Man and Doctor Strange will be two of those films, and have yet to cast lead roles. Having recently reacquired intellectual property¬†Blade, Daredevil, The Punisher, and Ghostrider: Marvel¬†has requested a meeting with Vin Diesel. ¬†Opening the door for a whole lot of nerd speculation.

 

Marvel Phase Three

DC vs marvel artisan

Zack Snyder may be a bad story-teller, but in all fairness is a¬†talented cinematographer. ¬†Luckily enough for us, Christopher Nolan is the kind of guy that would start¬†trolling¬†a baddie if they are¬†bad. ¬†Which let’s be honest if you are dealing with¬†Zack Snyder;¬†that is¬†going to be the case more often than not.

#TROLOLOLOL. ¬†Disney¬†finally¬†bought itself¬†out of¬†Marvel’s¬†Paramount contract,¬†but is still paying¬†8% and 9%¬†royalties¬†on¬†grosses¬†$1,511,757,910¬†(The Avengers)¬† and¬†$1,147,575,931¬†(Iron Man 3)¬†respectively.¬†¬†Granting¬†Paramount¬†roughly¬†200$mill¬†without breaking a sweat. ¬†Or literally even doing anything.¬†¬†Thor: The Dark World¬†however:¬†will be¬†Marvel Studios’¬†first foot-loose and fancy-free “in-house” project. ¬†With a little bit of¬†wiggle-room,¬†Marvel¬†has¬†already started writing up scripts¬†for some of it’s most¬†recently re-acquired¬†intellectual property¬†most notably:¬†Blade,¬†Punisher,¬†Daredevil,¬†Ghostrider, and¬†Doctor Strange.

Marvel Phase 3

As the #superheroarmsrace #startsheatingup, rumor has it @ChrisNolanWB is now basically the Kevin Feige of DC/Warner Bros.  Igniting what some might describe as a MERCILESS RUMBLE OF TITANS.

Marvel’s promise to “keep taking risks” creatively into it’s Phase Two is already paying off, as relatively untested director Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 crushed it at the box-office AND with critics. ¬†Clinching the second highest domestic opening ever, and pulling in a gross $1,111,096,000¬†and rocking a¬†9/10¬†on¬†IGN, Iron Man 3¬†is only Black’s¬†second film as a director. ¬†Marvel Studios¬†seems to have a knack for boldly pulling creative gem’s out of nowhere, like they did with Joss Whedon.

NOW IM NOT A MATHEMATICIAN OR ANYTHING:¬†but Shane Black’s¬†average¬†rottentomatoes¬†score as a director¬†with only two films turned out to be¬†80.5%. ¬†Meaning that if making movies were like high-school, Black¬†got a B. ¬†Pretty impressive. ¬†Equally not impressive: one could argue, is Zack Snyder’s average¬†rottentomatoes¬†score as a director¬†with 5 films at¬†54.4%. ¬†Meaning that if making movies were like high-school, Snyder¬†failed. ¬†LOLUMADBRO?!?

Iron Man 3-4

The 2013 Screen Actors Guild Awards¬†evidently put Argo in front-running position to take home The Oscar’s coveted Best Picture. ¬†After being Oscar snubbed as a director,¬†Affleck¬†and his film have since¬†cleaned up on awards¬†culminating¬†in SAG’s¬†top-honor¬†ensemble award. ¬†Daniel Day Lewis’¬†Oscar chances went from 95% ¬†to 99% with a SAG win, while Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway are also now a “shoe-in” as well or so they say.

Disney purchased 3 TV spots for tonight’s¬†BIG GAME¬†(Superbowl XLVII) at about 4 mill a pop while¬†Warner Bros. opted to sit out for it’s third year in a row. ¬†Industry insider info indicates that Warner Bros.¬†is strongly hinging on the¬†commercial¬†success of Man of Steel, before “moving forward” with it’s top-priority project: ¬†Justice League.¬† The studio¬†has every right to be nervous, banking it’s flag-ship character hopes on a director¬†like Zack Snyder.¬†¬†Snyder had early success with 300 (60%), and arguably Watchmen (64%), but his most recent film Sucker Punch (23%), was literally god awful. ¬†Which explains why WB execs are hesitant.

AND SO while Warner Bros’¬†ensemble team-up film¬†remains in¬†limbo, Disney’s ensemble team-up¬†film is well into it’s phase two, with Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World coming this year. ¬†Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige says that the studio is going to “keep taking risks” creatively ¬†in phase two¬†and beyond. ¬†One of such risks was casting Robert Downey Jr. as billionaire inventor Tony Stark. ¬†But that seemed to work out for everybody:

Assembly Required

The day of reckoning is nearly upon us my dear friends as The Avengers drops this Friday and can be seen in 3D and IMAX at a theater near you.¬† Pre-release tracking on the film projects Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to have the biggest domestic box-office opening of all time.¬† Why all this huss and fuss, jibber-jabb, and riggamaroo over a silly film about a couple of guys in leotards you ask?¬† Because the core concept of the story is that there are four basic kinds of people.
