The big news today is that Disney has gone ahead and bought the Fox entertainment division. It’s all over the news. Here’s a big link explaining it all. This is a huge deal, most importantly for me and you because it means the X-Men and Fantastic Four are now under the control of Marvel Studios. At long last, these two major franchises can join the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Just in time for the Avengers actors to retire now that their contracts are up!
Of course, knowing my luck, this big news — years in the making — has only arrived after Fox announced a freakin’ Multiple Man movie! Come on!
Multiple Man is my all-time favorite superhero and comic book character. The idea that Fox would devote resources to a full-on Multiple Man solo movie was impossible to imagine only a few short weeks ago. But then Fox goes ahead and announces that James Franco is going to make the movie and star. It’s a literal dream come true, and for the first time in my life, I was glad that the X-Men are their own separate film entity and can make movies like Multiple Man.
So of course, immediately after this movie announcement, Disney finally gets the rights back for the X-Men in movies.
God dammit. This is just my freakin’ luck!
And just like when Disney acquired Star Wars and shut down the various video games and TV shows in production, I have to imagine they’re going to put a lot of in-development X-Men projects on the cutting block. And the Multiple Man movie is in its infancy, so there’s no reason to let it go forward.
Of course this is all happening. I just can’t have nice things.
I’m pretty sure my spine was tingling while watching this trailer. That’s a solid, ringing endorsement from my nervous system. Hooray for Avengers: Infinity War!
If I was any sort of Internet anything, I’d make some sort of reaction video. But nobody wants to see my reacting to anything. Trust me, it’d just be weird. Best if I simply write up this little bit about how the trailer was really cool and really well made, and I’m excited for this movie. Very excited.
Could have used more creepy Pinocchio music, though…
Avengers: Infinity War comes out next year and it’s bound to be pretty awesome! I have just as high hopes as I have for any upcoming Marvel movie. And in a partnership with magazine Vanity Fair, we’ve got our first official look at the whole team! They all look pretty stellar.
Here’s hoping we get that first trailer soon! Probably ahead of Star Wars.
In honor of Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday, actor Evangeline Lilly shared the first picture of her in costume as the Wasp for the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp sequel! She looks pretty great!
I like the costume, though I think it could use a bit more color. Ant-Man is probably my favorite movie superhero costume, and its red coloring really helps it to stand out. Wasp is just black with some tiny bits of color and piping. The costume could use a touch more pizzazz, you know what I’m saying?
Still, looks great! Can’t wait for Ant-Man and the Wasp!
Surprise! The first teaser trailer for Thor 3: Ragnarok was released online today, and it’s utterly delightful!
Funny, charming, full of character and adventure; this movie looks phenomenal! Love Thor, love the Hulk, love the looks at Loki and Hela — though Jeff Goldblum looks ridiculous.
Also, at 1:05 in the trailer, I’m pretty sure that’s the Executioner with a pair of machine guns. And I’m pretty sure that means we’re getting Gjallerbru. So holy heck, you guys!
Thor: Ragnarok looks amazing!
