Archie comic to be made into a new show


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

I was a little obsessed with Archie as a 13 year old.  Ok, specifically, I was obsessed with Betty and Veronica.  Archie could have been minced and turned into a burger and I wouldn't have blinked, so long as their were more drawings of Betty and Veronica.

Well now a whole new generation of people can awkwardly fantasize about hot cartoon people.  Here's what 'thefrisky.com' had to say on the upcoming show.

"...there’s going to be a new live-action Archie show called “Riverdale,” written byArchie writer and Archie Comics CCO Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and produced by Berlanti Productions, which is the production house for “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and the upcoming “Supergirl.” It’s going to be a “subversive” look at small-town life, featuring Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Reggie, as well as other well-known Archie characters like Josie and the Pussycats.

Marvel is making more money than Scrooge McDuck on its franchise and it has no plans of stopping anytime soon. Here's Andrew Muench's rundown on Marvel's phased approach to releasing Marvel movies and what we can expect to come out soon.
Dan

After the original Iron Man was a success, Marvel put into motion its notion of (the ocean?) a phased Marvel Cinematic Universe. Each phase is a chunk of the one massive overarching story as a cohesive section with ties to the huge Avenger's Infinity War that it's all been building up to.

Captain America: Civil War movie coming soon

Captain America 3: Civil War

Cap is kicking off Phase 3 with Captain America: Civil War.

In the comics, Tony Stark and Cap spark the Civil War over the Superhuman Registration Act, but Feige commented on the MCU's version.

"Civil War of the cinematic universe, which will be greatly inspired by the Civil War of the comic universe, but we have very different continuity there,” he said. “This will be the Civil War based off of all the other films that you’ve seen up to this point, particularly Winter Soldier and particularly Age of Ultron.”

Captain Marvel

Beyond the confirmation of the movie itself, no news has come out about the upcomming Captain Marvel movie. 

Kevin Feige said, "This film has been in the works almost as long as Doctor Strange or Guardians of the Galaxy before it came out, and one of the key things was figuring out what we wanted to do with it. Her adventures are very earthbound, but her powers are based in the cosmic realm.”

I'm pulling for Katee Sackhoff to play Carol Danvers. She's expressed interest so here's hoping good old Starbuck takes the helm.

(DAN: I would dance for Katee Sackhoff in anything Marvel).

Marvel's Inhumans

Kevin Feige had this to say about the newly confirmed Inhumans movie: 

“November 2, 2018 will introduce dozens of characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We really do believe the Inhumans can be a franchise or a series of franchise unto themselves. They have dozens of powers and an amazing social structure. With our 20th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we wanted to continue to refine what that universe is about."

The Inhumans in the comics are a subspecies of human that were tampered with by the Kree and given superpowers. The Kree appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy, and in the comics Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) got her superpowers due to the Kree.

(DAN:  You have no idea how shocked I was to read this. I've been writing a fantasy horror series that includes day-walking vampires since I was 18.  I called this vampiric race The Kree.  Excuse me while I rewrite three novels)

Avenger's Infinity Wars

Confirmed for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!  Marvel's next grouping of films, Phase 3, is set to explode. In it the Avengers will face Thanos, a villain so powerful Marvel is giving us two movies about it. 

Their dates are as follows:

  • Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 - May 3, 2019
“We’ve always had a plan since Nick Fury broke into Tony Stark’s house and told him he’s part of a bigger universe," said Kevin Feige, "'Avengers: Infinity War Part 1' is the beginning of the culmination of everything that has come before."

Chris Hemsworth confirmed to be returning, and other than this being a key movie for all of Phase 3, no other details regarding plot or cast have surfaced yet.

Doctor Strange
No actor has been selected for the Sorcerer Supreme as of this writing, but Benedict Cumberbatch is supposedly in final negotiations and I'd not be surprised if this very quickly changes and he's made official.

(EDITOR: Ewan McGregor is also rumoured to get the part).

"In the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the supernatural, that involves everything from quantum mechanics to string theory," said Feige on Marvel's website. "The idea of this film is to open up a whole new corner of the cinematic universe.  We want to enter, through Strange, the world of parallel dimensions."

First look at Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet

A sneak peak at the Infinity Gauntlet
First look at Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet
The Infinity Gauntlet was designed to hold the "Soul Gems" or Infinity Gems (called Infinity Stones in the movies,) that give the wielder god-like powers over the entire universe. Created by Thanos the Mad Titan so that he could win Death's affection by wiping out all life in the galaxy. So far we've only seen four of the six gems in the movies but it's an obviously good bet that the rest will follow shortly.

Taken from the Marvel Wiki: http://marvel.wikia.com/Infinity_Gauntlet_%28Item%29

Time Gem: Total control over all aspects of time including time travel, stopping time, slowing down or speed up flow of time and to accelerate or slow down aging.

Space Gem: Limitless manipulation of space, allowing for teleportation, dimensional manipulation, creation of wormholes, etc.

Soul Gem: Limitless manipulation of souls both alive and dead also has shown to be able to evolve or devolve a beings physical self as well as their mental capacities.

Reality Gem: Locally or universally alters the natural laws of the universe to the wielder's will.

Power Gem: Controls all of the power in the universe. It can be used to augment or inhibit any force.

Mind Gem: Taps the user into the universal consciousness, allowing for unlimited manipulation of psionic powers including telepathy and telekinesis. 

The ones we've seen in the movies are the Tesseract (Space Stone) in The Avengers/Captain America, the Aether (Unkown) in Thor: The Dark World, the Power Stone in Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Mind Stone in Loki's Scepter from the Avengers. My best guess is that we'll see a stone in both Black Panther's movie and in Captain Marvel as both are back to back movies that lead into the Infinity War.

I like the first Avengers movie, I didn't love it - but I did like it.  I personally would prefer they just create a standalone Hawkeye movie and recast (sorry Jeremy Renner, you just don't work for me) the role, or a standalone Black Widow movie - I mean after Scarllet Johanson's performance in Lucy... how has this not already been turned into a thing?

But enough about me - here's the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron...

Buffy's Xander aka Nicholas Brendon got arrested

Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

So it's been a while since I saw Nicholas Brendon in anything and I imagine that things have been tough since the demise of TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Xander is one of those characters that if you were a mediocre nothing by the standards of your high school's popular elite, that you could strongly relate to.

In short, Xander was my main man for many a Buffy episode and is one of the reasons my newborn's middle name of Alexander, was greenlit.

So I was pretty bummed to hear he got arrested after a recent appearance at Comic Con.

Full story here.

X-men: Apocolypse to feature Tom Hardy


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

So my relationship with the X-men series is tenuous, unlike my friend Mike (go watch Mike's twitch stream here) who would probably dry hump every X-men character ever made if given the opportunity. My comic of choice was Conan the Barbarian *cough* and Ducktales *cough* when I was a wee lad so I missed the whole love affair with the X-men until it became mainstream via the movies.

When I was a teenager I was a complete Horror Whore.  If it sat in the horror section of my video store, I had somehow snuck it under my house and watched it on a video player I'd acquired for just this purpose (horror was banned by my parents).  That is probably the only reason that I've seen any of the Tremors movies, and I love them all and you will too.

Ewan McGregor to be next Dr Strange?


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

So Ewan McGregor already made fanboy dreams come true with his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars franchise, so why stop there?  Rumour mill has it that he is about to join the Marvel Universe as Dr Strange, or at least that's the goss from Badass Digest:

Iron Man 4 is a lie, Captain American 3 is secretly Iron Man 4


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

So recently Robert Downey Jr confirmed he was doing Iron Man 4, which he has now about-faced on and said, "sorry lads - Marvel aren't interested in billions of dollars" (quote may not be an actual quote, ahem).



But they are interested in OTHER billions of dollars because Iron Man will be one half of Captain America 3 which will actually be the start to the Marvel Civil War story line.

Chris Evans who plays captain America had this to say to Variety:

The new pact is significant for the Marvel cinematic universe considering the plot will pit Stark against Captain America’s alter-ego Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with superhuman abilities to reveal their identities to the U.S. government and agree to act as a police force for the authorities.
Stark supports the program, but Rogers does not, saying it threatens civil liberties, causing sides to be taken and Rogers, among others, to go on the run to avoid arrest. The moral question and battle with his Avengers teammate essentially makes Stark a villain of sorts in “Captain America 3,” providing Downey with a meaty role he could play out into future Marvel films, including a fourth “Avengers.”

Robert Downy Jr confirms Iron Man 4

@ DAN-isms.com

So I haven't seen Iron Man 3 yet, but it etched onto my list of things to do.  I loved Iron Man 1 and anywhere Iron Man appeared in the Avengers.  I thought Iron Man 2 was a bit... meh.

Word's been pretty quiet on Iron Man 4 but Downey Jr was on the Ellen show and had this to say:

Rihanna to be in next Bond movie?

Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

I am a maaaad James Bond fan.  I have happy-fun-time nostalgia for Bond like no other films series. I remember sitting on my dads lap, watching Bond kick ass - and then trying to look through my dads fingers as he covered my eyes every time a woman got naked...

Come to think of it, I may not have seen that much of the Bond movies based on that...

But my memories are very happy of what I did see and I spent many an hour chasing 'Jaws' and similar Bond villians in my parents back yard.

The next bond movie 'Bond 24' will see the return of Daniel Craig as James Bond.  I was a nay-sayer when Daniel got the gig but after the last Bond movie I have to say, he's the best Bond since Roger Moore (with Sean Connery still clearly the best).  I'd even go so far as to say the last Bond is the best in the series (big call I know, but I really loved it and I just recently rewatched them all).
