DEADPOOL confirmed as a movie!

4104865-deadpool-profile-picOMG OMG OMG! it has FINALLY been confirmed that Deadpool will indeed be a movie! the leaked footage, from July, was firmly denied by Fox Studios, but it turns out it was true all along. the leaked footage was of a 3D animation of deadpool antics, using the voice of, everyone’s favorite choice for the role of Wade Wilson / Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds. Ryan Reynolds is often referred to as’ ‘Ryan Wilson,’ as he played Wade Wilson / Deapool in the Fox’s ‘X-Men origins : Wolverine,’ as part of Team X, the best of that movie, by the way. Ryan “Wilson” Reynolds has not confirmed that he will be playing the Marvel character Deadpool, but we suspect he is still negotiating with Fox studios. Ryan Reynolds is a natural fit for Wade Wilson, mostly due to his personality on screen, going back to Van Wilder, being full of sarcastic retorts, which is perfect for Deadpool, also known as, ‘the Merc with the Mouth.’ we hope they can work it out, as comic fans will accept no substitute. the Deadpool movie is set to be released on feb 12, 2016.

we will also get a follow up glimpse of Deadpool in the next X-Men movie, ‘Age of Apocalypse,’ set to be released May 27, 2016.

if you are unfamiliar with the comic, it is rather gruesome, but lightens the mood by Deadpool incessant antics and desire for tacos. true to the comic, the movie will mimic Marvel’s comic character and will be rated R. the Deadpool movie, unfortunately will not be covering the X-Statix sequences, from the comic written by Milligan, but plenty of Deadpool antics are promised.

the origin of Deadpool, in the comic (just the basics): after a troubled youth, he briefly joined the military, where he was then diagnosed with cancer. he was offered an experimental treatment in the Weapon X program, the same program that gave Wolverine his adamantium. the treatment attempted to recreate Wolverine’s healing abilities, but caused the cancer to take over and scare his body. the treatment also caused memory loss and the healing abilities did eventually begin to work. he then escaped and became a mercenary, donning the familiar red suit with guns and swords.

UPDATE: the film will now be pg-13, instead of ‘R,’ but that’s kind of what the comics are anyway, the gore is out of sight/off page and the language is only hinted at. the movie could do the same, have the gore happen off screen & have Deadpool describe what it looks like & with SouthPark style, bleeped out cursing. i actually think it would be funnier that way. so sorry whiners, i don’t agree with you, pg-13 will be fine with me (if they do it right). James Gunn, director/writer of Guardians of the Galaxy, approves of the Deadpool comedy in this future film & said, “it’s true to the character.”

here’s the official Deadpool teaser / trailer from Fox Studios:

C4 Central Coast Comic Con : a little known comic con with amazing rewards

C4 cosplay contest winnersthis past weekend, sept 12-14, was the second annual C4 comic con in Ventura ,CA. it’s called, “C4” because there 4 C’s in it’s title, just in case you were wondering. usually small cons have little to offer and are not that exciting, but that was not at all the case with C4. the ratio of attendees to professionals was almost 1:1. what that translates into is 1. no lines, let me repeat, NO LINES- uh-hum SDCC San Diego Comic.. and 2. you actually get a chance to talk to all the professional cosplayers, comic creators, artists and booth celebrities, instead of just one or two. did i mention the Batmobile was there? there were many “star cars” or movie / tv related cars at C4, including the Batmobile from the original 1989 Tim Burton ‘Batman’ movie, the one and only surviving Christine car, hand signed by John Carpenter, the ‘Back to the Future’ Delorian, the TMNT Tennage Mutant Ninja Turtle van, K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, the A-team van, as well as others. some of the all star celebrity cosplayers that attended were Ivy DoomKitty, Vegas Power Girl, Ani Mia, Calie Cosplay, Nicole Marie Jean, Lonstermash, Jessica LG, Leah Rose, Castle Corsetry, Uncanny Megan, Angi Viper, the Winner Twins, the Mandalorian Mercs, the 501st Legion, Arizona Avengers and many more. if you don’t recognize the names of all those professional cosplayers, guaranteed you’ve seen their cosplay photo on social media. genre specific celebrities who attended the show included Kevin Sorbo (Hercules), Adrian Paul (Highlander), Tyler Mane (‘Sabertooth’ from Bryan Singer’s ‘X-Men’ movie), the Power Rangers,  and many, many others from tv, movies, comics, anime, cartoons and video games. Minions!

a small con invites more openness between attendees and many sci-fi geeks made new friends in Ventura lask weekend. the con campus was all in one place, with two building for exhibit halls and others for laser tag, panels and events like a fashion show and a cosplay contest. parking was reasonable, at only $5 and was very close to the con. this means less walking & more con fun, again, unlike other cons.  C4 was located at the Ventura County Fairgrounds, between an AMTRAK stop and the beach. yes, the beach! many cosplayers walked over to the beach after the con ended each to enjoy the sunset. the con closed rather early for cons these days, 7 / 9pm, but there were other things to do in Ventura. i had the best fish tacos of my life, at the ‘Beach House,’ located just down the street at the pier; they literally contained more than 2lbs of fish! the C4 comic con had two photo booths set up for cosplayers to get amazing photos of their amazing cosplay. the c$ comic con had food trucks! not every con has food trucks and con food can just be horrible and even worse, you can wait more than an hour for that horrible food, but the Mac&Cheese truck &other options were a refreshing element.  the general feel of the con was really positive without any con stress, an everyone enjoyed their time there. looking forward to next year.C4 Central Coast Comic Con cosplay

Z Nation : review : zombie apocalypse on the syfy channel

i was almost really looking forward to this show, but feel all the different types of tales that can be told of a zombie apocalypse have already been told with the Walking Dead and all the various zombie movies over the years. iZombie, the CW tv show slated for release in 2015, based on comic book, however, offers a new perspective.

so the intro of this show, with loads of action and suspense, held my attention; it was like a mix of World War Z and an action version of the Walking Dead; i liked it. as the show progresses, you are shown pieces of the government clinging to structure and still trying to function as such. refugee camps do not need long narratives to explain their plight and how they’ve managed to function and survive; piggy-backing off the established commentary of the Walking Dead, that took many episodes to create. i appreciated Z Nation not needing to recreate the wheel here, they didn’t even pause at the name zombie, like some movies do. if the zombie apocalypse were to happen tomorrow, no one would be confused as to walk a zombie was or what name to call it; we know; thankfully Z Nation didn’t slow the episode by having to explain such things.

what you need to know: the zombies in Z Nation move fast, like as fast as a normal human would run, but not quite as fast as sprinting World War Z and 28 days later/28 weeks later zombies, and Z Nation zombies are very, very strong; they eventually can rip down steel bars. if a zombie bites you, you turn into a zombie very quickly, not 11 seconds, like in World War Z, but no waiting hours to turn either, like in the Walking Dead. it is hinted that if you die, you will turn into a zombie, without having to be bitten by a zombie to transfer the zombie virus, just like in the Walking Dead or the movie Fido. Z Nation zombies can successfully knock on doors, imitating humans, and intentionally play dead until prey, humans, approach. this indicates either they retain some sort of intelligence, instead of being just “a bunch of mindless zombies,” or it’s just bad writing.

the verdict: the show almost rushed through too much too fast, i had almost no connection with anyone before the turning point scene. if you haven’t had time to understand a character and their motivations, when a character is faced with an emotional decision, you almost don’t care. i’m talking, of course, about the zombie baby scene. they find a baby, other dude, suddenly has an emotional moment, you don’t know what to make of it, then somehow, not clear in the scene, the baby turns into a zombie. the baby wasn’t bit by the nearby zombie. was the baby just feigning to be like a human for an hour? we really don’t know, just boom, baby is now a zombie. next, rational, military guy suddenly has a heart and says it must be him that kills the baby, because, “they just can’t leave him that way.” why do you suddenly care? and why does one baby warrant locking & barring the door behind military dude? at this point it turns into a scene from Chucky, with creepy baby zombie laughs, which, after the third one, become hilarious, and cheesy searching under debris and beds, with low camera angles, just waiting for zombie baby Chucky to pop out and shock you. and surprise twist, baby zombie kills military dude as another zombie appears out of nowhere and joins in. you are left with one thing: why? why did he go in there in the first place? why did he go alone? and why am i watching this? then, everyone else enters the room (again, why didn’t they all go in before? oh yeah, one line of out-of-character dialog) and the group unloads about 200 rounds of firepower, all in typical slow-mo ‘epic’ action style, all just to kill 2 zombies and military dude, (to keep him from turning into a zombie). they’ve been fighting zombies for three years now, according to the lower third credits, and they’ve never learned to conserve ammo or to abandon zombies you don’t need to kill to survive? really? the next scene you see sniper guy, whom we’ve never met, but just know he exists because he snipered a zombie, abandoning his sniper rifle and walking down the road, without any explanation at all, other than to be asked to join the group, as they drive by-wat too plot convenient and why did you leave your weapon behind? it was just like a scene from Sharknado that makes no sense. i bring up Sharknado, because both Z Nation and Sharknado were spawned from the syfy network, but also, because syfy tweeted tonight that Z Nation “was the cure for the Walking Dead.” the context being, everything wrong with the Walking Dead is fixed with Z Nation. after the zombie baby scene, it was clear Z Nation is a comedy and is not to be taken seriously. this point is driven home further when the NSA radio operator, in the northern arctic, location unclear, turns into a global DJ, like Good Morning Vietnam, but for the apocalyptic world. attention syfy, if you’re going to make a comment like that, you better be damn sure you are actually better; since your show is inadequate at best and repugnant at worst, that comment is clearly just an insult, shame on you syfy, but Z Nation could have been worse, it could have been as bad as Helix.

Batmobile Stolen!!

batmobile_batmanvsupermanthey just released photos of the new Batmobile in it’s entirety 2 days ago, and now it’s been stolen! last reported location: the streets of Detroit. the news was leaked from a blog and Warner Bros has made no official statement yet. the Detroit Police Dept have no official report on the stolen Batmobile, but are investigating the claims, even as we speak. the new Batmobile will be used in the upcoming movie Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice, staring Ben Affleck “Batfleck” as Batman, to be directed by Zack Snyder, and set to be released march 25, 2016.

no word from Gotham PD or Batman himself. suspects include: Oswald Cobblepot / Penguin, Selena Kyle / Catwoman, Harley Quinn, the Red Hood and of course the Joker. Damien Wayne and other Robins have been questioned without any conclusive evidence. Katana has refused to comment and both Talia & Ra’s Al Ghul have sufficient alibis.

i’m curious as to how one would escape driving the Batmobile? it’s something everyone would notice anywhere, even follow it so they could get that trending photo on instagram. maybe the Detroit Police Dept should just check social media photos; probably better than GPS in this case.

local Detroit news agencies are investigating the reports and hope to have something concrete by tonight’s evening news broadcast, stay tuned..

Update: according to The Freep, at 8:53pm EDT, Sept 12, 2014, “‘The Batmobile is safe in the Batcave where it belongs,” says Sgt. Michael Woody,’ of the Detroit Police Dept.” this statement doesn’t actually mean it was NOT stolen or missing; it just means they have it back now. Warner Bros could have denied claims it was actually stolen to police, later recovered it & didn’t want anyone to know that it went missing, or the rumors could have just been exaggerated & took over social media today; we may never know the actual truth. Bleeding Cool broke this story & now has nothing to say about it. who did they talk to? who said the Batmobile was missing? ‘danielbane’ posted an instagram video of the new Batmobile doing “burnouts” friday morning. was this the criminals escaping? or just a joy ride? there didn’t seem to be any film related equipment nearby. perhaps this was the origin of the rumor that Bleeding Cool propagated. watch the Batmobile burnouts here

Batmobile revealed!

the new Batmobile from the upcoming movie #BatmanvSuperman has been revealed in its entirety. it’s also good to know that the #Batmobile can parallel park for those Gotham City errands and ever important Batshopping. this model comes passenger side airbags, Mr Freeze adaptive climate control air conditioning, surround sound with bass boost for BatTunes and is now a hybrid, allowing for full whisper stealth mode running solely on battery power.

the ever anticipated Batman v Superman movie is set to be released on March 25, 2016 and will feature Batman / Bruce Wayne played by Batfleck / Ben Affleck, Superman / Kal El (soon to take on his secret identity of Clark Kent in this film) played by Henry Calvill, Wonder Woman / Diana Prince played by Gal Gadot, the Flash / Barry Allen played by Scoot McNairy, and possibly Aquaman / Orin, King of Atlantis, played by the Khal Drogo guy from Game of Thrones.  Jesse Eisenberg will play villain Lex Luthor donning the Lex Battle Suit (no photo of the Battle Suit yet, but we do know Jesse is now bald..).

downloadGOTHAM  (intriguing but the concept may not carry over a full season. it’s like Young Justice/ Gotham City Kids, centered around a cop drama with detective James Gordon as the protagonist. so Catgirl, Lil’ Bruce Wayne before Batman, the Penguin as a henchmen, not a crime boss, a young Riddler and Poison Ivy too (although they changed her name to ‘Ivy Pepper’ from her true name of ‘Pamela Isley’ from the comics) and yes, they will hint at the joker mid-season (Fox said they wouldn’t but it was leaked that they will. i prefer the mystery of the Joker, not really ever knowing who was before becoming the Joker; it makes for a much more interesting character, especially reading/watching his made up origin rants. Tim Burton spoiled that by giving the Joker a name & a pre-history not covered in any of the comics, ‘Jack Napier.’). Netflix already bought the streaming rights & could possibly carry the series if Fox cancels it)  Fox

The 100 - New Promotional Poster2

the 100.  (global war destroys civilization. a few thousand people escape to space and survive on a rigged space station for 100 years, but that’s not the 100 from the title. 100 teenagers were jettisoned down to earth as a test to see if the earth was again inhabitable. it’s a post apocalyptic world with mad max warriors, yep, not all life was killed in the war. the verdict: it’s interesting, but the plot doesn’t advance that quickly. also it has the typical teen drama you’ve come to expect from the CW. funniest thing ever was the two-headed deer first episode. this show is good at creating mystery & suspense, but an episode later they dilute the concept or character with normalcy & blah blah, so it is easy to lose interst in this show. the first season aired in summer, with little competition, don’t think it has the right stuff to hold up to fall television.)  CW

fri  Oct 24

Constantine_Show-e1399833122634Constantine.  (if you think you’ve seen this, you haven’t. it’s not Keanu Reeves (the constantine movie), nor is it the leaked pilot. the pilot was reshot without the female lead. this series will be closer to the comic than the movie, but slower moving unfortunately, and spoiler: Dr Fate’s helmet appears in the pilot, so more involved than just John Constantine with the poorly designed business card, this show will introduce the realm of DC comics magic, who knows how far they will go.. i saw the original pilot and it was rather boring; hoping they will amp it up for the premiere.)  NBC

GRIMM.  (well if you made it this far, might as well continue to watch a little more.. i was severely disappointed with the beginning of season 3, after episode 7, it started to pick up again. they are just running out of material & ways to keep it interesting. the whole blindly trusting adeline because she now has a baby was just BS, & big surprise she turned back into her evil self again. bored on fri nights? then yes.)  NBC

not mentioned: Revolution (‘cuz too much swash-bucking without any pirates), Falling Skies (‘cuz family drama with an alien/sci-fi landscape & bcuz of too many poor decisions every episode; not worth watching), Defiance (also family drama & very much like Terra Nova, which was so painful to watch). Bitten (season 2 will be on SyFy in 2015. Bitten is like a bad version of the Vampire Dairies, but plot twist, it’s werewolves, instead of vampires). you don’t have to watch bad television just because it’s sci-fi; we have other choices now. your time is valuable, especially to geeks, spend it tweeting about the proper positioning of Spider-Woman’s butt or getting the high score on Destiny; life is too short to waste it on bad television.

Powers-comic

Powers

based a comic book from Image comics, 2004, it focuses on two detectives solving superhero related murders, in a world where super POWERS are part of every day life. releases Dec 2014.  Sony PlayStation Network (that’s a thing. it’s a streaming service like Netflix, but only accessible through a Sony Playstation).

Rosario Dawson to star as Elektra, Elektra in her villain phase. looking forward to this. it airs on Netflix so hopping we can binge watch just like House of Cards.) Netflix

Agent_Carter_Official_LogoAgent Carter.  (so..remember Captain America’s girlfriend from the first Captain America movie? well her name is Peggy Carter and she has her own comic book series, ‘Agent Carter.’ the reason she was featured in ‘Captain America: the Winter Soldier’ movie, was this series, airing winter 2015. did you ever see the 15min ‘Agent Carter’ short, called ‘Marvel One Shots,’ on the ‘Iron Man 3’ dvd? well that was essentially the pilot episode, so Zodiac is the villain. the series will cover the formation of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is why Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be taking a break mid season for this 8 episode run. the series will cover elements from the comic, have a female, empowered protagonist, Peggy Carter, important in today’s world, and supposedly will hint at Hydra surviving after the movie demise of Red Skull. Howard Stark, Tony Stark’s (Iron Man) father will also be a part of the cast.)  ABC

bjmcwpxlpxcuimntqcykOrphan Black  (YES! there will be a season 3)  BBC America

New Angeles   (a virtual reality world staring Keanu Reeves. so it’s the Matrix ? well.. not Wachowski Bros or Matrix franchise, but may be immersive like Existenz. make it action-style cool, not like Caprica’s ‘V World.’)

Titans (‘Teen Titans’ most likely to include: Beast Boy aka Changeling, Cyborg, Starfire, Raven, Nightwing, Kid Flash & Wonder Girl. still in development. hoping for 2015). TNT

Walking Dead Spin-off (not too many details have been released, not even the official name, but we do know it will cover different areas of the zombie apocalypse, giving us a larger picture of what happened & what is currently going on; similar to the book World War Z. the movie depicted Brad Pitt traveling the world trying to figure out what happened & the origin of the outbreak, but the book was a compilation of over 20 different stories, narrated by each individual, depicting their story & their attempts to find a cure; a great concept for story telling, but would not have translated into cinema. Robert Kirkman, the creator of the original Walking Dead comic & co-writer/influencer for the Walking Dead tv show and the writers for the Walking Dead will be helming the spin-off. releases in 2015). AMC

Supergirl (still in development, well Warner Bros is still trying to sell it to a network. the CW refused, so we’ll see. hoping it will air fall 2015) update: Supergirl will air on CBS.

X-Men (in “deep development”) according to sources at Bleeding Cool, Fox is considering an X-Men TV series! it is still “deep in development.” which probably means 2016. Since Fox still owns the rights to ‘X-Men’ and even the word ‘mutant,’ and considering their new superhero success with Gotham, it only seems fitting that they will bring X-Men to the small screen. the potential could be amazing, since Fox produces the X-Men movies. there could be all kinds of movie-tv crossovers just like what Marvel did with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America : the Winter Soldier. i’m really excited about this, make it happen Fox.
