How Will Marvel Bring The XMen, The Fantastic Four & The Silver Surfer into the MCU?

wallpaper-1199506Well, I have some thoughts..

The simplest explanation is not always the most fun. Yes, you could say a school of mutants has always existed in West Chester, NY, but chose not to engage in any of the world threatening struggles– boring, (and also, very unlike the X-Men to ignore such threats). And the Baxter Building has been in the Microverse the whole time? –not buying it.

You could solve it easily with time travel, via the Infinity Gauntlet, with Captain Marvel resetting the entire universe, but one of things is not like the others– enter the XMen in an end credit trailer to the deafening screams of Marvel fans (I would be one of them), as Stan Lee begins reading a copy of the Daily Bugle with Fantastic Four on the front page. This is certainly scifi plausible and would be acceptable, but I have another theory..


What if..

..during the final battle with Thanos, Scarlet Witch alters reality with her magic, destroying the Infinity Stones, ceasing Thanos to have ever existed, but also inadvertently alters the reality of the universe. The previously vaporized superheroes return and BOOM the XMen now exist, and have always existed according to everyone, except Wanda. Wolverine, Rogue and SpiderWoman (Jessica Drew) are standing beside their teammates, the Avengers, The Fantastic Four can be seen far away atop the Baxter Building, and far, far away, the Silver Surfer makes a deal with Galactus to save Zenn-la.

Avengers : Age of Ultron Trailer #2 : explained! 7 secret easter eggs no one else knows!

Avengers : Age of Ultron Trailer #2 : explained

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 2.20.23 PM:20 Utron comes to life in a previously destroyed Iron man suit. Tony Stark finds the Ultron computer program in the Chitauri wreckage; does he make it the new J.A.R.V.I.S.?

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 2.20.57 PM:27  QuicksilverScarlet Witch! due to a legal loop hole, both Scarlet Witch and her brother, Quicksilver, can appear in both 20th Century Fox movies, the X-Men movie series, as well as Marvel movies. Marvel, of course, is the creator of the X-Men, but sold the movie rights of the X-Men and every form of “mutant” and even the use of Adamantium to Fox many years ago and has been desperately trying to get them back.

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.14.50 PM Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.14.44 PM Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.14.16 PM:33  mystery woman in cavern, as Nick Fury voice over : “no matter who wins or loses, trouble always comes ’round.” some say this is Nebula (Thanos’ other “daughter,” other than Gamora, from Guardians of the Galaxy, looking for Infinity Stones for Thanos). but this could be an introduction to Wakanda, home to Black Panther and Vibranium. will Ultron create a metal suit out of indestructible Vibranium? probably. especially because, in the comics, Ultron created an exoskeleton from Adamantium, the indestructible metal that covers Wolverine’s skeleton; Adamantium’s use in films is exclusive to Fox, movie rights owner of X-Men and mutants. it would make sense to alter the cinematic version to Vibranium in its stead and create a window to the wonderful world of Wakanda. the woman in the cavern scene could be Shuri, T’Challa / Black Panther’s sister. Black Panther solo movie : Nov 3 2017.

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 2.29.44 PM:36  Scarlet Witch!!  also kicking Tony’s ass.

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.16.01 PM:38  a young Natasha (Black Widow), held captive with some sort of invasive surgery happening, presumably at Hydra.

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.10.19 PM:48  Iron Man on the Great Wall of China.

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.10.45 PM:52  from the back, presumably Black Widow with some big mf guns about to create havoc & major destruction on something/ some one.

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.23.04 PM:54  other dude. this could be Ulysses Klaw, the guy who kills T’Chaka, T’Chala/ Black Panther’s father. does he steal the Vibranium for Ultron?

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.11.17 PM:55  Quin jet

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.12.17 PM:58  Ultron trying to kill Captain America

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.54.45 PM:59  blond woman running with child. is this significant? is this woman Carol Danvers? the future Captain Marvel? it’s a long shot, but she is slated to make two cameos in this movie, perhaps this scene is the motivation for her becoming a hero; she also needs Kree powers, but maybe from Nebula somehow? i doubt they will have the Kree Captain Mar-vel is this movie, but maybe in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, no one knows for sure at this point. Carol Danvers will have her own feature length film (July 6 2018).

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.02.53 PM1:00  Hulk & Widow have a moment. presumably the Hulk gets out of control and Black Widow is the only one who can calm him. “Hulk trust Widow lady.”

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.13.00 PMScreen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.09.42 PM1:02  Ultron attempting to kill Thor  (Ultron (Ultron 6 comic book equivalent) may actually kill Captain America and Thor and almost everyone else, like he did in the comic book; it may be up to Black Widow/ Natasha Romanov to find the Time Infinity Stone, reverse time and save everyone. Ultron might also find a way to banish Thor to a dark realm, leading to Thor 3 : Ragnarok (releases July 28 2017)).

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.05.07 PM1:03 other mystery woman? or Shuri again?

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.13.45 PM1:06  Thor strangle threatens Tony Stark. (Tony found the computer program on a Chitauri ship & made it his new Jarvis, allowing it to become sentient, thus creating Ultron). more on Ultron, click here.

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.16.18 PMScreen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.17.13 PM1:10  Hulk buster Ironman suit, Tony Stark built the suit in the event Hulk gets out of control, which only creates more distrust. did Tony Stark create a contingency plan for every Avenger, a way to defeat each Avenger in the case they were mind controlled like Hawkeye was in the first Avengers film? if Ultron is inadvertently given access to J.A.R.V.I.S., and therefore everything Tony Stark knows, Ultron would then have knowledge of how to defeat every Avenger. in the comics, Nick Fury and the former S.H.I.E.L.D. created this out of control Avenger contingency plan. for the movie, Avengers : Age of Ultron,  it is most likely Tony Stark will be responsible; this will create distrust and cause the Avengers to disassemble for the next film, Captain America 3 : Civil War, or the “Ironman vs Captain America movie,” as some have started to call it.

every time Marvel releases a little more of this film, i just cant wait to see it more.

Avengers : Age of Ultron

releases   May 1 2015   (in America, international release dates vary from april 29 to may 7th)

Cosplay Dreams 3D: the World’s First 3D Cosplay Movie : Review.

Cosplay Dreams 3D: the World’s First 3D Cosplay Movie.

Podcast interview with creators Gulliver & Christine Parascandolo. Filmmakers Gulliver & Christine Parascandolo, the creators of Cosplay Dreams 3D, discuss what it means to be a 3D filmmaker and their experience exploring the world of cosplay. Cosplay is a word, derived from “costume and “play,” which simply means, dressing up in costume, but not merely on Halloween. Cosplay has grown in popularity in recent years and, combined with geek culture, is one of the fastest growing pastimes in the United States and the World. Cosplay Dreams 3D took over 2 years to create and was filmed at cosplay conventions, including San Diego Comic Con, WonderCon, DragonCon, HRM Steampunk Symposium and even a medieval knights and chivalry event. Cosplay Dreams 3D lets the viewer discover what it means to cosplay and what it’s like to be a cosplayer, unlike anything else on tv or in film. This documentary film features famous cosplayers, such as, YaYa Han, Traci Hines and Fanboy Brandon. The 3D effect is quite interesting to watch, and the 3D special effects are truly amazing. Cosplay Dreams 3D has had it’s premiere screening and is now seeking national and global distribution.

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:  

upcoming Marvel & DC superhero movies 2015 thru 2020

upcoming Marvel & DC superhero movies 2015 thru 2020 (well, sorta. this list is all that we know so far..)

marvel has planned out superhero movies thru 2036, but hasn’t released the titles yet. the race is on to produce a female lead superhero film. marvel will introduce many new female heroines, but the most likely first female lead superheroes will be Black Widow and Capt Marvel (Ms Marvel/Carol Danvers), not either, but both. Capt Marvel will be introduced, most likely in the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and aid in the defeat of Thanos in Avengers 3. Black Widow is necessary to further the plot line with Capt America & the Winter Soldier, preparing Bucky to carry the Shield (just in case Steve Rogers “retires” in Avengers 3; Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet is omnipotent, THE most powerful force in the universe; Adam Warlock (yes, that was his cocoon in Guardians of the Galaxy) and every other Marvel superhero will be needed to defeat Thanos (unfortunately fox & sony own some of them; still hoping they might lease them to Marvel). (note: Ultron & Apocalypse, also bad ass, and also most or all Marvel superhero required for victory). DC and warner bros are finally catching on to Marvel’s interconnected story telling (in the movies, of course, both DC and Marvel comics always have had interconnected plot lines). Batman v Superman will launch Wonder Woman and other superheroes into their own upcoming, respective, stand alone movie.  since Wonder Woman has a projected release date of nov 17, 2017, i’m sure Marvel is rushing its plans to release it’s stand alone Black Widow movie first. we can wait for Carol Danvers (“make it great & we will happily wait”), but we know she is coming.

note that some of these dates have yet to be set, by the movie studios, and are listed as general months or seasons. exact dates have been confirmed by the movie studios. some movie titles may change, are listed as  ‘unconfirmed,’ a best-guess scenario based on clues from the movies studios or leaked rumors. often studio situations, marketing, production and contracts change, thus delaying a movie release. studios often reserve release dates years in advance, for a projected plan, but plans do change. for years 2019 and 2020, only reserved dates have been confirmed.

GOTHAM tv at SDCC : Erin Richards talks about her role as Barbara Kean on Fox’s Gotham at Comic Con

GOTHAM tv series star Erin Richards talks about her role

GOTHAM, tv series this fall, starring Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, talks about her role on Gotham & Ben McKenzie, (who plays Detective James Gordon on Gotham), at the Gotham zipline event at SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2014.

who is Barbara Kean in the Batman / Gotham City universe? find out here..

Fox’s new tv series, ‘GOTHAM,’ will be a prequel of sorts to the main Batman theme. it takes place in Gotham City, but at an earlier time than most Batman depictions. Bruce Wayne / Batman is young, just after his parent were murdered, as well as the rest of the Batman characters you are familiar with. GOTHAM actually centers around Detective James Gordon, and not Batman / Bruce Wayne and offers a unique spin to a familiar story. as of yet, there will be no cross-overs with the Batman movie franchise.
GOTHAM is, of course, based on Gotham City of DC Comics, who first launched Batman in Detective Comics, 75 years ago, May 1939.

Guardians of the Galaxy : no Nova?

ok comic fans:
there’s no #AdamWarlock in #GuardiansoftheGalaxy & no “apparent” #Nova but Nova is part of the #NovaCorps and there were several different Nova’s in the comics, but i think there are going with the main Nova, #RichardRider as Nova for #Marvel space in the #MCU . in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, #JohnCRiley is #RhomannDey . this character is crucial, as Dey gives Nova, #RichardRider , the #NovaForce giving Rider the powers of Nova. this sequence will most likely be saved for the sequel, #GuardiansoftheGalaxy2 , as well as the appearance of AdamWarlock. i was almost thinking that John C Riley’s disapproving Nova Corps officer, the one who said, “now i’m taking orders from a hamster,” was going to be Richard Rider, but he “apparently” died when the #NovaShield was broken by #Ronan #RonantheAccuser . his character certainly fit as Nova, but it looks like we will have to wait until the sequel or more leaked content; stay tuned ..
