I missed you Doc Connors!

September 8, 2008 at 12:18 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This is what I get for taking Friday off! I just found out that Spiderman 4 and 5 have officially been signed onto by director Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire. There’s no word as of whether or not Kirsten Dunst has signed on yet but it would be no big loss to have to choose another redhead to fill the part. I’m good with a different Mary Jane since I was a big fan of the 1994 Spiderman tv series. She usually kicked Peter’s butt and got him to do stuff so it’d be a nice change of pace to see a girl do that to Tobey Maguire lol.

The better news is that people are starting to realize that you can’t make every superhero emo all the time. “…I’m told the filmmakers won’t be borrowing from the latest Batman installment because ‘Spider-Man is its own thing,’ one insider tells me. … The difference between Spider-Man and Batman is that Batman is duelling with a dark side of himself, and that’s not what Peter Parker’s struggle is. Peter Parker has no dark side himself. … Peter Parker’s struggle is about sacrifice.”-Nikki Finke’s Deadline Daily. Hooray! This means directors aren’t nearly as stupid as I was starting to believe. Also they’re trying to shoot 4 and 5 at the same time since it was so difficult to get everybody to sign back on. Smart thinking.

The best part of the news is the villain theories being thrown around. “Sony is taking its time officially hiring the movie’s villain since principal photography doesn’t start on Spider-Man 4 until next fall because of the recently postponed May 2011 release. I am told, however, that ‘once you find out who the villain is, you’ll know who’s playing it.'”-Nikki Finke’s Deadline Daily. People are definitely thinking Doc Connors is gonna transform into the lizard man for this movie. I would have to say that I’m really excited about the prospect of having him as the villain. I hope that the director would have to follow the actual Spidey storyline to get this to work out. If he did this, he’d have a plot for the 5th movie too (if you’ll remember how Spidey got all mutated and had 4 extra arms for awhile). Who saved him? Doc Connors! I’m going to need to find my sister’s paper mache lizard head and my mom’s old labcoat so I can run around in excitement (like I did when I used to watch the show).

Well I guess I’m giving you the worst news last but the good news above should outweigh it easily. Sony has hired some writers to start making Venom the movie. “Given that comic book artist/writer and action figure maker, Todd McFarlane, who is one of the creators of the Marvel villain, doesn’t think a Venom movie could do well with a villain as the central character,” I’m pretty sure Sony is going to regret their decision.-Nikki Finke’s Deadline Daily. Just because you have the costumes, it doesn’t mean you have to use them people. That’s like saying it was ok for Saban Entertainment (The people who made Power Rangers) to make The Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog just because they had the styrofoam monster suits lying around (all they did was spray paint them different colors anyway 😛 ).

No more reboots please!

September 3, 2008 at 1:54 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I love this poster and it's bullety skully goodness

I love this poster and it's bullety skully goodness

Is it sad that I just realized they’ve remade The Punisher into a movie called “Punisher: War Zone?” I hate it how all these sucky directors jumped on the superhero band wagon and decided to make movies. They didn’t even try to make them good; they just thought that people would like them because of the ongoing trend. That’s not how comic geeks work and it’s about time they realized it. Comic readers expect perfection. Why bother going to see a crappy movie rip-off when there are dozens of comics devoted to each character? They’ve already rebooted The Hulk and plan on rebooting Superman. Why not just get it over with and please please please reboot X-men (atleast the 3rd one I mean come on, that’s my only exception.)

Anyway it seems like there was a lot of drama between the directors and producers of this movie. If you look at Wikipedia, you can see what I mean. This movie is supposed to be really dark vs. the original film (this is good because he is you know, the Punisher) and is currently rated R. It starts off with Frank Castle already as the Punisher for several years. There is supposed to be some back story told through flashbacks though. The Punisher will be facing off with Jigsaw in this movie. (Fun fact, originally Spiderman and Nightcrawler stopped Jigsaw from framing the Punisher for the murder of one of Nightcrawler’s old friends.) It’s due in theaters on December 5, 2008.

Superman is gonna be emo now

August 22, 2008 at 1:49 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Warner Bros. has announced that they’re going to be making Superman not crappy this time around reintroducing Superman. It’s supposed to be a similar situation to how The Incredible Hulk was a replacement for Hulk. *sigh* I hope they do it right this time. We don’t need a box set of superhero movies that sucked coming out in the future. It’d be on “I Love the New Millennium” and I’d want to help make fun of it. Since Superman flopped in 2006 there is no Batman vs. Superman (It was originally planned for Christmas of this year or sometime in 2009) or Justice League movie (Thank goodness!) coming out for awhile. I’m think they’re trying to give people time to forget the last Superman movie in order to help build up hype for the new one later.

This time around Warner Bros. Pictures Group President “…wants his next pack of superhero movies to be bathed in the same brooding tone as ‘The Dark Knight.’ Creatively, he sees exploring the evil side to characters as the key to unlocking some of Warner Bros.’ DC properties.”-comingsoon.net. By “DC properties” I think he meant making a good plot for the movie 😉 (You know like Marvel movies do except for that horrible horrible X-Men 3 movie where Cyclops got killed in the first 30 seconds for no good reason besides the fact that Brett Ratner wanted him to. I betcha Bryan Singer wishes he didn’t drop it to make Superman Returns now, but I digress.) How the heck do you show Superman as evil?
I’m betting they’re gonna:

A. Copycat The Dark Knight by killing off the love interest Louis Lane
B. Find some red Kryptonite like in Smallville and make sure it gets stuck in him somehow

Wasn’t Superman emo enough in Superman Returns? I guess not. I’m gonna look for some Kryptonite razor blades to give them so he can go cut himself to make the movie better this time around.

Wonderwoman would totally be a lesbian

August 15, 2008 at 11:24 am (Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I found another really cool article on The Topless Robot. It’s “10 Reasons No One Cares About Wonder Woman.” I’ll give you the rundown of the list but make sure to check out the article yourself. It has really good examples of each case.

10. Her costume sucks (Scary blue patriotic granny panties ftl!)

9. No good storylines

8. Most comics are terrible (from what I’ve seen I agree)

7. Golden Age Wonder Woman was really lame

6. “Her Lasso of Bondage” (omg it’s so true, I mean seriously that lasso reminds me of how much of a hoe Stacy X (Apparently known as Ripcord now) is in X-men. Also has anyone ever noticed that Wonderwoman’s boots are so just red hooker boots? Somtimes really tacky hooker boots but still.)
She's gonna get ya!

She's gonna get ya!

5. The Invisible plane sucked (How dumb of an idea was the invisible plane I mean really!)
4. Terrible normal villains and almost no super-villains
3. Steve Trevor isn’t hot are desirable in any way (why is he in that comic, clearly she’s a lesbian people! I mean come on Amazon princess.)

2. No sidekicks or cool butler friends to speak of

1. She’s just a girl version of Superman (and Superman really sucks, seriously Batman could totally kick his ass any day of the week. It’s why he never joined the Justice League. 😉 )

I’d like to add one to the list actually. She has no real secret identity. One of the main good things about superheroes is that they have to hide their secret lives from their loved ones so that

A. They don’t think they’re a freak and leave them 😉 and
B. So no super-villian decides to kidnap them and hold them for randsom or kill them.

Plus isn’t the whole part of a super heroes secret identity supposed to make them relateable and nobody wants to relate to a blue granny panty wearing Amazon that wears hooker boots! Does she ever wear normal clothes?

Am I really that gay looking?

August 3, 2008 at 10:19 pm (Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I found this hilarious video on College Humor making fun of Superhero outfits :D. I love the part about Spiderman because Mary Jane doesn’t hesitate to offer her opinion on the Spidersuit. I also really love the part with Professor Xavier and Wolverine. I mean how many times has Professor X. had other people think about killing him because he was a bit too nosey? lol. It’s also fun to see Captain Planet get laughed at. Anyways, enjoy this video and I’ll post more later :).

I want some Reeses Bats

August 1, 2008 at 10:57 am (Food, Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

Currently there’s a big Batman the Dark Knight campaign going on with Reeses. I have finally confirmed that they do in fact sell bat-shaped Reeses cups (Thanks to one of my fave blogs) but I still haven’t gotten any yet. I’m going to the store today just to look for them.

There’s a customized Batman MV Agusta F4 being given away as the grand prize. It looks pretty awesome. There’s a gallery on the Reeses site of the Agusta in production. There are 5 Panasonic home theater systems being given away for the first place prize and 10 limited edition Joker henchman masks for the second place prize. Kitkats are eligible for the giveaway as well but I don’t think they have anything bat-shaped.

What do Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America all have in common?

July 23, 2008 at 6:43 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , )


So I was thinking about that Watchmen movie coming out and I was like when’s Marvel gonna have their next movie? Aha look what I found! It appears that an Iron Man 2 is already in the making (what a creative title lol). It’s supposed to be coming out on April 30, 2010. So it’s still awhile off but I’m definitely looking forward to it.

Thor is supposed to be coming out slightly later in the year. According to Wikipedia Stan Lee made Thor shortly after creating the Hulk in the hopes of making a stronger super hero seeing as how he was a god instead of a human. I think it’s cooler when super heroes actually have skills versus brute strength though:).

Captain America is coming out in 2011. Now by adding the Hulk, let’s think, what do all 4 of these super heroes have in common? They’re all members of the Avengers. I’m positive that will be Marvel’s response to the Watchmen. This also makes a lot of sense seeing as how the list of new Avengers includes Spiderman and Wolverine. I mean Wolverine is getting his own movie with a date set for May 1, 2009. It’s going to be a very big build-up before Avengers which I’m betting will make it more popular than the Dark Knight. But that’s just me.

Anyways I’d just like to thank you guys for making today have more than 100 views! 😀

Yay I’m a pink scooter!

July 22, 2008 at 7:12 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , )


So Transformers 2 is called Revenge of the Fallen and it’s predicted to come out June 26, 2009. Pretty cool title I guess but really the only ones that “fell” were Jazz and Megatron and other nameless Decepticons. I really hope that Starscream comes back to be his usual double-agent self.
There’s supposed to be a lot more Transformers this time which is awesome. I get sick and tired of listening to those dumb army guys in the first one. I’d much rather have the whole movie with Transformers constantly duking it out. But I’m pretty sure Arcee is a confirmed transformer for this movie seeing as how it was rumored that she would be in the last one. Also it’d be my best guess that Hot Rod is going to be in this movie. Especially cuz Michael Bay said that he had to try and make Bumblebee less popular when Hot Rod was mentioned. I mean you kinda need that young hard-headed character lol.

Just because I love him. Here’s a pic of Transmetal Cheetor!

Holy attention seeking whore Batman!

July 22, 2008 at 2:30 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , )

So Christian Bale got arrested for abusing his mother and sister. Tsk tsk Dark Knight. He was released on bail sometime today. But, the police didn’t even put him in jail until sometime after the London premier of Batman on Monday night. He told people on that red carpet that being in a bat suit was so ridiculous that in order to stop himself from laughing he had to get into a dark state. Uhm hello? Isn’t that what everyone said Heath Ledger did to play the Joker? Seriously, I think someone is missing some of his usual attention. Very un-batmanlike of you sir.
Look at that emo kid.

Dunna dunna dunna dunna BATMAN!!!

July 19, 2008 at 12:14 am (Random, Superheroes, TV) (, , , , , , )

Edit:  I’d like to ask all of you who are finding this on search engines.  What search engine do you use?

Post it in the comments…thanks 😀

In honor of Batman The Dark Knight coming out today…I’m gonna post some stuff about my favorite Batman show, Batman Beyond. The Dark Knight was an amazing movie, even though it was preempted by a preview for some dorky DC thing called Watchmen.
Batman vs. Spiderwoman
Uhm here is Terry…(the successor to Batman sometime in the future) fighting Spiderwoman.

Here he is again fighting some electrodude [Edit:  Actually Derek Powers, not electric but radioactive and the man responsible for killing Terry’s father.  I was rewatching the series and realized this.]. It’s a cool looking pic though.
