Actor Robert Pattinson has been cast to play Batman in the next solo film, due out in 2021. And to that I say: sure, why not?
I never saw any of the Twilight films…nor have I seen anything else Pattinson has done. I don’t even really remember him from that one Harry Potter movie he was in. So honestly, I have zero opinion on this casting choice. And I have long since moved past any fanboy rage of the perfect actor not being cast. I am terrible at the casting game, and I’m very open to whatever interpretation filmmakers want to go with…within reason.
So this looks like a perfectly fine choice for what will probably be a perfectly fine reason. And I can once again start getting my hopes up for a proper on-screen Robin. That is all I honestly care about at this point.
The internet being what it is, rumors have started to percolate that Marvel is planning a movie about Nova, the Human Rocket. There is absolutely no confirmation of this. But I think I saw a Nova movie as a possibility mentioned on at least two different websites, so that prompted me to think up a list of everything I’d like to see in a Nova movie! That is how the internet works for me, after all.
I fell hard for Nova during Annihilation, as I’m sure many people did. I had zero interest in the character during his New Warriors days or anything before Annihilation. But then Marvel turned that teenage nobody into a champion of space! He was a young but grizzled hero trying to hold together an army of cosmic cameos to repel an otherworldly invasion. Nova was just damn cool. And a Nova movie could be a lot of fun, especially with the Nova Corps already established in the MCU.
Join me after the jump for what characters, concepts and stories I’d like to see in a Marvel Nova movie!
**Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home SPOILERS to follow**
With the release of the new Spider-Man: Far From Home movie trailer, Marvel seems to be hinting that they’re going to start using the Multiverse in their Marvel Cinematic Universe. First of all, I don’t believe it, considering Mysterio is the one introducing the concept. Second of all, a lot of people online seem to think this is how Marvel will introduce the X-Men and Fantastic Four into the main MCU.
I think that’s bollocks.
Bringing alternate reality versions of the X-Men and F4 into the main Marvel movie universe is a weak cop-out, especially since both teams can be introduced naturally within the existing world framework.
These are just some ideas I’m kicking around in my head. Considering this is my blog and I don’t have any corporate overlords or advertisers pulling my strings, I can write whatever nonsense I want to write. And today, I want to share my ideas for how to organically introduce the X-Men and the Fantastic Four into the existing Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially in the wake of Avengers: Endgame.
Join me after the jump for my ideas! And beware of Endgame spoilers!
Avengers: Endgame is behind us, so the marketing machine has to start moving for Spider-Man: Far From Home — and that means a ton of Avengers: Endgame spoilers. That’s just the nature of the beast. The new Spidey film is going to pick up a lot of Endgame threads and people need to be warned!
Tom Holland warns you ahead of the trailer. So consider yourself multi-warned.
Fun trailer! We get more Mysterio and more Nick Fury. Always fun.
I highly doubt Mysterio is really from an alternate universe. I mean…come on. We all know who Mysterio is. Just as we know those giant Hydro-Man and Molten Man creatures aren’t real either.
Mysterio is just doing his thing, people! He’s Mysterio! Though why Nick Fury has bought it hook, line and sinker is a good question.
Spider-Man: Far From Home arrives on July 2.
It seems to be a quiet Monday here in henchman land. So how about enjoying the Honest Trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse? This came out more than a month ago, and I’ve been saving it for a rainy day! Perfect!
They get really clever with this one, which is fun. Being creative is always rewarding and enjoyable. And Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is indeed a masterpiece. So we’ve got that going for us.
