Sure, Robert Pattinson is the New Batman

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?

Pattinson is Batman 01

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.

6 Things I Want to See in a Nova Movie

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.

Nova Wanna See 01

It’s not human rocket science

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!

How I Would Bring the X-Men and Fantastic Four Into the MCU

**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.

This is them

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!

The Cool New Spider-Man Trailer is Full 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.
