Academy Award¬†#bestactor¬†Jamie Foxx is looking pretty OG triple as deranged electomancer¬†Max Dillon a.k.a.¬†Electro. ¬†Though not an in-house Marvel Production, Sony Pictures has seen wild success with @therealstanlee’s¬†coveted Web-Slinger franchise. ¬†Save perhaps when they cast Eric Forman as afflicted bruiser¬†Eddie Brock a.k.a. Venom. ¬†Which was a sub-optimal move, one might say. ¬†Kind of ¬†like the cinematic blunder¬†known as¬†Sucker Punch¬†directed by who other than rampant herpaderp¬†nub-scrub¬†Zack Snyder. ¬†#LOLUMADBRO?!?!

Quote1.png“It’s a couple hours of make-up, but it’s really so much fun,” Jamie Foxx¬†on being¬†Electro,“It’s part of a remarkable legacy:¬†Spider-Man.¬† I mean, when you’re growing up as a kid, that’s everything. So to be able to be in that is just amazing–the producers wanted something for the future. ¬†They wanted to have it more grounded and not as “comic-bookie”, so it won‚Äôt be green and yellow. ¬†They wanted to try new things in the script. ¬†This villain¬†(@Electro) is for ¬†the first time written really, really well,” he continued. “[Star]¬†Andrew Garfield¬†and [director]¬†Marc Webb¬†both commented on how great the script is, so it should be an exciting time. ¬†¬†“I’m just waiting to get to Comic-Con and see how people respond to it.Quote2.png¬†—¬†Jamie Foxx

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.

Quote1.pngThey’re back in the fold, which is where we want them to be.Quote2.png¬†— ¬†Marvel President Kevin Feige

Marvel Phase 3

Intergalactic Synergy 4

J.J. Abrams is looking like a pretty solid candidate to bring Star Wars back into legitimacy, as his warm-up for Star Wars Episode VII is rocks an 87% on rottentomatoes:

A brand new Star Wars trilogy is not all Disney has in mind,¬†as a matter of fact the mass-media corporation says that at least one¬†spin-off film is also “in the works”:

Quote1.pngWe are in fact working on a few stand-alone films,”¬†says Disney CEO Bob Iger. (Lawrence) Kasdan and¬†Simon Kinberg¬†are both working on films derived from great Star Wars¬†characters that are not part of the overall saga. ¬†So we plan to make Star Wars VII, VIII and IX over roughly a six-year period of time starting in 2015. But there are going to be a few other films released in that period of time too.Quote2.png

Ya go ahead and sign me up for all of that.  Thanks.

Naturally speculation¬†about potential “standalone films”¬†has run amuck: everyone from Boba Fett to¬†Yoda to a young Han Solo to a Seven Samurai Jedi Knight Ensemble Film are rumored as possibilities. ¬†The last one sounding¬†pretty boss. ¬†Oh wait. ¬†Nevermind. ¬†It was Zack Snyder’s idea. ¬†And let’s be honest with ourselves. ¬†That guy¬†is a baddie.
