Andy Serkis Reportedly "Klaw" in Avengers Sequel (Article) - 1/24/2015 12:55:44 PM

If Mantis appears at all in the mcu it will be in GotG 2 not AoU. Klaw's appearance in AoU is likely a prelude to his appearance as the villain in the Black Panther movie.

DC is doing the same damn thing only they're calling thiers Convergence. It's even got the same theme of different versions of heroes and villains from different AU's and time periods fighting each other. They say that they're not doing it to undo the Flashpoint/New 52 but nobody's buying it. Maybe not a wholesale retcon of Flashpoint/New 52 but I would not be surprised if a partial retcon comes out of it. 

Scotty to Pen Star Trek 3? (Article) - 1/23/2015 7:06:25 AM

Well Paramount has said they want to use the GotG formula, meaning they're wanting a more comedic approach for the third film. Pegg as a writer is a big step in that direction. This Trek candy bar will be sweetened with a artificial sweetener that might taste good at first but leaves behind a nasty aftertaste and later on gives you the runs.

 

 

First Look: Marvel's "Last Days" (Article) - 1/22/2015 10:25:44 AM

Not at all. The X-Men books are not ending. Cut back, maybe. Ending, no. They just won't be as prominent as they were.

I'll wait and see where the Marvel Universe is post SW. Hopefully it will put and end to the alternate universe/time travel nonsense at least for a long while anyway. The UU was an interesting side bar for awhile but it went way off the rails. But there's issues in the main universe as well they've made a mess out of Cyclops, not a fan of old man Steve Rodgers/Falcon Cap, female Thor and way too many Spider characters.

Frankencastle was like two years ago and he's got his original body back. But it was a fun diversion for awhile.

I agree about the Avengers, get them back to basics. Fighting thier classic villains like the Masters of Evil. I miss those throwdowns with those scumbags and kicking thier asses. Shorter story arcs with less world saving, galaxy spanning and universe saving and more arch nemesis defeating.

Wasn't a fan of Spiderman and Wolverine on the team that never worked for me. Both characters work best as solo acts.

And could we please pair down some of these multiple Avengers teams. Keep the core team and a book that is a kind of an Avengers anthology series where characters who wouldn't normally be on an Avengers team get to play in the Avengers sandox.

The most likely out come from this will be a hybrid of the primary 616 universe and the ultimate universe. It wouldn't surprise me if they change the designation to something else. Maybe 616.1?

@Elbaz13 I hear you about the X-men. The constant alternate universe/time travel stories turned me off. You never knew if you read a story if it wasn't going to be undone by a time travel/alternate universe reset. Look how many times Jean Grey has been killed, resurrected, and killed again. Each time she was brought back it was through time travel and or AU. Right now there are two cyclops, two angels, two beasts, and two icemen.

When the DoFP comic was so sucessful it became a what I call a creative crackpipe. Time travel/au stories became an addiction to the creators of the X-men titles. Couple that with the way overuse of Wolverine, which took a great character and made him boring. I started calling him Whateverine.

 

Heroes for Captain America: Civil War (Article) - 1/20/2015 7:12:58 AM

Evans is contractually obligated to one more Avengers film so him dying in CW is unlikely. However, it's possible that he could be arrested and locked up at the end of the film. Another possibility is that they do something similar from the comics in that the SS formula starts breaking down and it causes Steve to age to his true age.
