Marvel and DC Upcoming Movies – Thoughts And Stuff

marveldc

So between right now and 2020 there are 33 movies scheduled to come out based on Marvel and DC properties. Thats nerdgasm for your ears, plus there is basically no Marvel based ones announced after 2018 yet, so you can probably expect like 40 in the next 5 years.

I decided to do some brain thinking and drop a few thoughts on each movie listed for release.

May 1, 2015 – The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Will quite possibly be the greatest movie of all time. I am way too excite. The only issue I see with this movie is lots of Elizabeth Olsen and she won’t be my wife. :(

July 17, 2015 – Ant-Man

Really interested in seeing where/how this goes. They’re straying actually pretty far from the source material which is unusual for Marvel. I have faith they’ll pull it off.

August 7, 2015 – Fantastic Four

I have no idea what they are doing here. They’ve been so tight-lipped about it. I wonder if Fox will tie it in to their X-men world or not. Part of me wants them to pull it off, part of me wants them to fail. If it fails again, I can see Fox defaulting it back to Marvel.

February 12, 2016 – Deadpool

I hope people expect this movie to be what it is. I think a lot of people aren’t properly familiar with Deadpool and might expect something else. But if it emulates that test footage and they walk the appropriate line between breaking the 4th wall, humour and shocking violence they’ll have something.

March 25, 2016 – Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

I don’t know if I could possibly be less enthusiastic about this movie. I want DC to knock it out of the park, but I just has such little faith in them. Also, not tying their TV/Movie universes together really pisses me off.

May 6, 2016 – Captain America 3 (Fallen Son/Civil War)

I’m not a huge fan of the Civil War. At all. I was really disappointed by the main story arc of it. The on-screen rendition is already behind the 8-ball, especially without the Xmen and Spider Man. They’re really going to be stretching for a full slate of heroes.

Widow, Hawkeye, Daredevil (Netflix), Powerman (Netflix), Ironfist (Netflix), Powerwoman (Netflix), Hulk, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Deathlok (TV), Ant Man, Iron Man, Cap, Falcon, War Machine, Mockingbird (TV).

Thats it. It can only really be “good” guys. Asgardians are off in space. Maybe you can toss in the Winter Soldier. But are Widow, Hawkeye, Falcon, Mockingbird, really “super humans”? They’re just badasses. They have no abilities to register but being highly skilled.

This would make more sense AFTER Dr Strange and Ms Marvel because then at least you have a couple more people with actual reason to be involved.

May 27, 2016 – X-Men: Apocalypse

Age of Ultron Trailer Reaction and Analysis: OMG

HOLY CRAP! That was my reaction. But lets also look at the trailer and try to find some things. SPOILERS DUH maybe.

  • 00:14 –  opening shots of general panic set the tone well. James Spader’s voice over is menacing and authoritative. Almost sounds regal. Excellent.
  • 00:19 – shot of Ultron(?) getting out of lava. Love this as it gets across the indestructible nature of Ultron.
  • 00:24 – some shots of Cap, Hawkeye and Thor in the area of the place that was panicking. They all look a little haggard and exhausted.
  • 00:29 – Looks like the interior of the Avenjet. Banner is tripping balls. No sign of Stark or Hawkeye in the jet. Banner is using his shirt like a straight jacket it seems.
  • 00:33 – More killer voice work and some shots of a limping and damaged Ultron V1 (we’ll call it V1).
  • 00:34 – “Tangled and strings” I love this theme.
  • 00:40 –  Things get real. Crushes the head on one of the Iron Men/Ultron prototypes.
  • 00:49 – Cap never skips leg day. I’m digging his new suit.
  • 00:55 – Some destruction shots. Guns. A tank. Makes things look hopeless.
  • 00:58 – Banner stumbling around in some woods. Really interested in his plot for this movie.
  • 1:00 – Is that Widow?
  • 1:03 – Ultron working with the “miracle twins” or whatever they were called by Von Strucker. Definitely makes sense if they were captives, and Ultron is looking to cut the “strings” on the world. They’d be willing disciples.
  • 1:06 – Love the design of Ultron’s minions.
  • 1:09 – Thor’s with Cap, Widow and Hawkeye. He drops his hammer. It’s a neat “oh no” style shot.
  • 1:12 – Stark is looking over what looks like Ultron V1/ what is left of him.
  • 1:13 – “This is the end.”- Stark. False. There are plenty of sequels still to be made.
  • 1:15 – Nick Fury. Curious to see what he can do without S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • 1:16 – “Nothing lasts forever.” – Widow. Except you having terrible hair in every Avengers film to date.
  • 1:18 – Elizabeth Olsen/Scarlet Witch screaming in the middle of a devastated courtyard. She isn’t my wife yet but I hope she is one day.
  • 1:21 – HULKBUSTER ARMOR! That is so hype.
  • 1:26 – Widow gets dropped on her Harley to go fight, presumably. Makes me wonder why there is still traffic heading towards where she is going. Robots destroying entire cities isn’t subtle, citizens. Why isn’t she getting people to safety?
  • 1:29 – Quicksilver runs through a robot as Cap takes a seat. Curious to see how they handle his speed powers after Xmen: DOFP and The Flash TV show handling super speed really well.
  • 1:31 – Is Cap geared up in a night club?
  • 1:34 – Who is this guy? He’s obviously someone but I haven’t paid too much attention to the casting and I can’t quite put a name to him.
  • 1:34 – Standard “Chris Hemsworth must be shirtless” scene.
  • 1:35 – Hulk and Widow share a moment. Really wanna know Hulk’s story now.
  • 1:37 – Tank shots. Looked like they were firing blue stuff, which was the Phase 2 weapons/Hydra weapons powered by the Tesseract.
  • 1:38 – Hawkeye still in a goofy outfit I am not on board with yet.
  • 1:40 – Thor grabs Stark by the throat, like Loki did. Looks like this scene is back where Ultron made his first appearance in Avengers Tower.
  • 1:42 – Hulk v Hulkbuster Iron Man – can’t wait to fanboy over this in the theatre.
  • 1:43 – Song plays again. I am so on board with it. I’VE GOT NO STRINGS by Ned Washington/Leigh Harline.
  • 1:46 – Quicksilver running. Tiny bit underwhelmed by what they’re showing his speed to be. He should be basically instant. Other characters look like they’re only at half speed.
  • 1:48 – Why do fruit stands always get destroyed in action scenes?
  • 1:53  – CAP’S INDESTRUCTIBLE SHIELD OH NO!
  • 1:56 – Dat Ultron design.
  • 2:14 – Making me wait until April is bullcrap.

Total Divas S3 E9 21 Point Review

  1. Don’t buy a truck you can’t drive without hitting things/not park.
  2. Off to a rolicking good start to marriage counseling Natty. “DON’T BLAME ME FOR EVERYTHING!” Before you even get through the door.
  3. A wild Jojo has appeared!
  4. a) I’m with Eva. Why do you bring that up ‘at work’?
    b) Eva, you don’t actually do anything so it isn’t work. You’re just there. You’re not working. You’re taking up space in catering.
  5. … no more in-ring segments please. PLEASE stop them.
  6. TJ is boss. Tells Natty how it is! Not letting her off the hook. #TeamTJ
  7. When they talked about Mullholland all I could think of was Iron Man.
  8. Oh Brie, STFU. Don’t act like you’re doing this for any other reason than for the reality show.
  9. Ambrose! Why did DB not go? I can only imagine how hard Ambrose parties.
  10. Arianne is shit tier at house shopping. Its hard to haggle when you openly gush in front of the realtors. Plus, there is 2 of you. 6 bedrooms is too much for 2 people.
  11. Oh look, its Naomi for her 15 seconds.
  12. Gosh, Natty has no respect for TJ and then gets mad at TJ for not being “nice”. Yes, you are controlling and nagging and angry.
  13. “You’re gonna fold it in the front room?” LOL
  14. Oh Vinny… you’re such a good guy. Poor Vinny.
  15. 0_0 that negotiation… O__O, O__o… o__0? On both sides…
  16. “Suprised you didn’t throw some dishes on the lawn!” Go TJ! Go TJ! Its your birthday! Go TJ!
  17. TJ is just so Canadian. He’s packing clothes into a hockey bag!
  18. A conversation with Eva Marie: “honestly like, i don’t even know, like, you know, like its honestly like, i don’t know like”
  19. Papa Marie has made an epic face turn this season
  20. My reaction to Natty getting mad at TJ at the end -__-
  21. “I’ve prided myself on being a professional. That’s why I decided to make a scene at work where you were being professional and I went totally nuts Ms Piggy style”

Total Divas S3 E8 16 Point Review

  1. I’m positive they ADR in ring tones in post.
  2. OMG TEEN CHOICE AWARDS :/ lol @DB’s reaction
  3. Eva has no charisma. All the presence of a pine cone. No personality. Just generic insufferable hot girl.
  4. How in the world is Eva going to ever improve in the ring if she isn’t living near NXT? :/
  5. Rosa needs Tinder. And to make up her mind about what she wants in dudes.
  6. I WANNA DO THAT TRAMPOLINE THING! THAT LOOKS SO AWESOME! WHERE IS THIS IN CANADA? ps. Rosa is Canadian!
  7. Oh god… Eva driving trucks… with trailers…
  8. Oh Summer… Summer no… no, Summer no… (That was so a reality TV set up!)
  9. Eva is awful. #TeamJonathan
  10. Brie thinks she’s about 10000x the celeb she is. If she re-wore a dress, no one would notice.
  11. Aight now, ease up there DB. Ease up… Although 22 BUCKS FOR COFFEE? WTF!? Stop having a bunch of 22 dollar coffees and $150 bar tabs for lunch with your sis and you’d have more free cash. But I’m speaking as a college student pinching every penny to be able to get boozed on the weekend.
  12. Reservation under “Diesel”? … Rosa I don’t think a guy named Diesel is the “one”. (Sorry John) And you met him on Instagram! :/
  13. She goes a little too hard on the first date…
  14. TAYLOR SWIFT!!!!!!
  15. Lesbo Rosa!
  16. Ariane STFU! She needs an attitude check. Jeezus Vinny. How do you deal with it?

Total Divas S3 E7 19 Point Review

  1. Rosa, ha! Holy fawk! Dayyum.
  2. Shut up Natty. My goodness. You’re about as fun as your “Uncle Bret”, who is the worst.
  3. I tried to look up this movie Nikki is in. No ratings, no metacritic, no tomato meter, and the preview was awful. Cena didn’t look impressed either.
  4. Cena’s my boy.
  5. Its Trinity for her 15 seconds of screen time. So glad they’re adding two more girls to the show without removing Brie, Eva, Ariane and Natty.
  6. Cena would be such a great heel. Just a pragmatic, serious heel.
  7. Does Nikki think that a sex scene actually involves banging in a mainstream film? Is she this stupid?!
  8. Cena’s look of utter counfoundedness is my favourite. Right up there with “no”. I need heel Cena. I need it. Segments like this make me crave it. Heel Cena.
  9. That date was… awkward? Or okay… I don’t know. It reminds me of dates I had when I was just getting into dating. Awkward innuendo and trying rom-com stuff because you’re too dumb to know any better.
  10. The Bella brother flips from face to heel way too often for me.
  11. Summer! That football footage. What a badass.
  12. Rosa creeping Summer. <3 I started creeping Summer too <3
  13. Ugh… girls and their dumbass texting rules.
  14. Eva “you can’t let him do a sex scene!” one scene later “he’s your man. support him. let him do it!”
  15. TJ rules. Laying it down. Telling her how it is! TJ! TJ! TJ!
  16. Uhh… thats… a second date… to say the least. Not surprised to see dude bounce.
  17. Oh no, Summer… no… Summer…
  18. You tell her TJ!
  19. Holy frack what a contrived “reality TV” storyline this ep was.
