My favorite Pixar movie is The Incredibles, for reasons that should be obvious if you’re reading my blog. So of course I was excited to see the first teaser trailer for Incredibles 2! Which is definitely happening!
And if that wasn’t enough Incredibles for you to love, how about the How Incredibles Should Have Ended video? At least these parody videos are still pure and unburdened by controversy and horribleness!
This one was kind of garbage though. Quality initial joke, for how the movie should have ended. But then it falls back on some Batman/Superman cafe thing with Elastigirl that I just don’t get or remember. I dunno. I’m probably in the minority here, but I just don’t think cutting to these Batman/Superman cafe scenes are as funny or witty as the creators think. Especially when it’s implied that, like, Superman slept with Mr. Incredibles’ wife? That’s just disrespectful.
Man oh man, this is quite the comic book fan weekend! Not only did the Justice League movie come out — which I very much enjoyed — but we’ve got the Punisher on Netflix! I’ll be watching that this weekend! And expect my Justice League review/list to go up on Wednesday!
Unfortunately, I didn’t read any Justice League or Punisher comics this week! Just normal stuff like Amazing Spider-Man and Mighty Thor! And Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Batman for an absolutely fabulous story!
I think it’s definitely safe to say I like Tom King’s work on Batman more than Scott Snyder. It’s really a shame that I was so cold to King when he started. I just didn’t like that Gotham/Gotham Girl stuff.
Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #791, Batman #35 and Mighty Thor #701.
I’m not sure where this is suddenly coming from, but I guess James Franco is going to make a Multiple Man movie?! This is according to an article from Deadline Hollywood today. Seems kind of insanely random, but as a huge Multiple Man fan, I’ll take it!
On the one hand, Fox Studios has been making some incredible Deadpool movies. On the other hand, their Gambit film has been stuck in development hell for years at this point. So I don’t know if I should be getting my hopes up or if I should just accept all of this with a grain of salt and an open mind.
I am totally cool with James Franco starring as Jamie Madrox. I’m terrible at casting, so I don’t have any actors I’d prefer. At least with Franco, you know you’re going to get something interesting and worthwhile. So this could be pretty neat!
I’ll forgive a lot as long as it means we get an actual Multiple Man movie.
And I would totally be down with Seth Rogen as Strong Guy!
The first Deadpool movie was hilarious. And the first teaser for the Deadpool sequel is just as hilarious! This is good teaser trailer.
I don’t know why I can’t really stand comic book Deadpool, but absolutely love the humor of live action Deadpool. It’s a mystery for the ages!
The big comic book news of the month is that writer Brian Michael Bendis has finally made the jump from Marvel to DC! This is pretty huge news! Bendis is one of the most popular and noted comic book writers of the modern era, having had a big hand in shaping the Marvel Universe for the past decade and beyond. This is the guy who created Jessica Jones, turned the Avengers into a popular comic book franchise and recreated the wheel with Ultimate Spider-Man.
It has always made sense for Bendis to eventually try out DC Comics for awhile. Lots of writers jump back and forth between the Big Two. Heck, Bendis was notable for having not done that. So it feels inevitable that some deal would be reached and his creative energy would be employed by the direct competition.
I, for one, am rather excited to see what Bendis writes at DC. I know I’ll be picking up his new comics, whatever they might be. And I just happened to have a couple suggestions.
