Philosophical Strife

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.

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?!?
