   After hearing about Joss Whedon’s being brought onboard by Warner Bros. for finishing the JLA movie. Jessica Chobot, of Nerdist News, reported that Scott Snyder had called in Whedon to help with something on the production way before his needed exit.

Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest: Raiders of the Lost Props

   Some great stories from a prop collector in this episode. I know a lot about Star Wars, canon, legends, games, making of, but there is a wealth of knowledge in this episode for some some facets of the original films that I know very little about. Props and filming locations, along with the stories behind them are a whole nother level of cool.

Star Wars: Rogue One Reshoots

   Relax. Reshoots are just a part of big budget business as usual. Everybody is loosing their minds over nothing. How many more Nerd shaking events need to happen before we all just sit back and not over react to every little nothing that happens in geekdom?

   More and more, the internet is putting the FANATIC back into Fandom. Let’s all mellow out and enjoy what ever we get, or make something better.

The Vision vs. Red Tornado: Battle of the Droids?

VvRT

   We recently had a reveal of the new Red Tornado (August 1968) that will be appearing on the Supergirl TV show, airing on CBS soon. While they are both androids they are very different. For the new or casual viewer, that may be moot. All red skinned androids are the same to the non-geek public. I know, I am as shocked as you are that there are still some hold-outs to the Geek lifestyle. I can’t stress enough about the fact that this probably won’t be the final look for the Red Tornado. Pardon the pun but it just won’t fly with the community. The Vision (October 1968) was executed perfectly on the big screen, and while the screen may be smaller our expectations, as geeks, are not. Both have a long history, and both have a legacy that predates the characters themselves, one has been honored and we’ll soon see if the other follows suit.

   Who else out there can’t wait to see this old/new character to take to the airwaves?

Fox to Re-Make Big Trouble in Little China!?

big-trouble-in-little-china-1

   So Fox is remaking Big Trouble in Little China. What? Who the FU… oh wait, with who? The Rock??? Oh HELL YES! I am in. Now, while I am usually one of the first to bemoan the lack of creativity in Hollywood, this film and Dwayne Johnson just fits.

Will Spider-Man join the Avengers on screen? That’s a tangled web …

   This is a no-brainer. It is like 20th Century Fox owning the release rights to the original Star Wars Trilogy. All parties will eventually come together and hammer out a deal because of the almighty dollar.

Me: So, Mr. Suit, do you like money?

Suit: Why yes. I love money more than my own reproductive organs.

Me: So how about you allow Marvel to make Spider-Man the way they only can and make you a BUTT LOAD of cash?

Suit: Caaaaaasssssshhhhh…. (read with Homer Simpson drooling inflection).

   You get the idea. Cash is king and it is good to own as much of the king as possible in the business world of (insert any business here). You, like I, may despise the Mr. (Ms. & Mrs. for that matter) Suit but they are the ones who pull the trigger on good and bad deals. They can either be a drunken monkey with a hair trigger or a highly trained Sniper. The choice is theirs. May they choose wisely.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

 

   So we are a few weeks into the new series which airs each Tuesday night. The first week was strong and the second with action packed but with an added dose of Nick Fury. There is Agent Coulson’s ongoing mystery as to his recuperation from being, well, dead and that is highlighted by some of his field skills being “rusty”. Still a pretty good show.

   As of this third episode, however, the only thing tying the program to the Marvel universe is Clark Gregg. If he were not a part of this show then I wouldn’t know that it occupies the same universe as the Avengers and that is a bad thing. I am a die-hard Marvel and DC comics fan (yes Arrow is back tonight on the CW!) so I will support this show with every fiber of my being since it is pretty good. That being said, as an hour long action/drama program it would be on my “I’d watch it if there wasn’t something better on” list if it wasn’t Marvel. Bring in more Super Beings! Showcase some of the B-List heroes. Marvel doesn’t apologize for super powers it their movies so let’s not tip-toe around them on the small screen. This would be a perfect place to introduce Heroes For Hire and test the waters for spin-offs or whatever. Bring the heat, Marvel!
