Today of all random days, we’ve got two brand new, completely different trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming! How neat is that?
I’m definitely hyped about this movie now. I know the trailers have given away a ton of the story, but I’m OK with that. I’ve liked what I’ve seen so far. This should prove to be a really good Spider-Man movie, and that’s all I want from this world. Well…that’s not true. But that’s all I want from this movie. Just be good.
Greetings everyone! Last week I missed out comic book reviews because I was in the hospital. And this week, I’ve not only been busy at work, but I’m also busy today putting together shipments and packages for everybody who ordered the Gamer Girl & Vixen graphic novel! It’s been a busy month, let me tell you.
So there won’t be too many reviews this week, unfortunately, but we still had some solidly entertaining comics. All-New Wolverine, Detective Comics and Amazing Spider-Man were all good, and the third issue of X-Men Blue takes home Comic Book of the Week for another nice issue, solidifying it as my favorite (so far) of ResurrXion.
Meanwhile, last week I missed the first proper issue of Secret Empire, and I enjoyed it. People are welcome to hate this Captain America as a fascist storyline all they want, but I’m digging the heck out of it. I think it’s a pretty great premise for a big, company-wide crossover. I really hope they can pull this one off.
Also, I skipped the new issue of Silver Surfer this week for a couple reasons, but the end of the issue was as big a gut punch as some of the best issues of Saga. Masterful work, Mr. Dan Slott.
Comic Reviews: All-New Wolverine #20, Amazing Spider-Man #27, Detective Comics #956 and X-Men Blue #3.
So, uh, I kind of went a little overboard with the reviews this week, everybody. Sorry about that. It just so happens that a metric ton of my favorite Marvel comics all come out on the same day, and I didn’t want to skip over any of them! So be prepared for everything from Amazing Spider-Man to Unstoppable Wasp to Mosaic to the final issue of Power Man and Iron Fist! Plus I wanted to try out a couple more ResurrXion comics.
Fortunately, this week also delivered one of the best issues of Silver Surfer yet, an easy Comic Book of the Week! That comic is magical! Silver Surfer #10 combines tragic romance with all my favorite bits of Silver Surfer mythology, making for a wonderful issue.
Meanwhile, I really, really, really want to get back into reading more DC Comics. Now that Gotham Academy is coming to an end and Greg Rucka is leaving Wonder Woman, I’m going to try to get caught up on those two series so I can review them through the end.
Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #26, Detective Comics #954, Mosaic #7, Power Man and Iron Fist #15, Silver Surfer #10, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #19, Unstoppable Wasp #4, Weapon X #1 and X-Men Blue #1.
Out of the blue, Sony announced a premiere date for their long-in-gestation Venom movie. They’ve even classified it as a ‘sci-fi/horror’ movie and plan to start production in the Fall. Maybe they’re actually going to go through with it, or maybe it’s all just smoke and mirrors to make Sony’s movie division look better for an upcoming sale. Whatever the case may be, it’s perfect for wild blog speculation!
I’m as much of a Venom fan as the next person. I love the living costume idea. I loved the Lethal Protector phase back in the 90s. Heck, I even love a bunch of the minor spin-off symbiotes. And considering Sony is now partnering with Marvel for their Spider-Man properties, I would be thrilled if this Venom movie is real and ties into Spider-Man: Homecoming!
So join me after the jump for my ideas on what we should see in a Venom movie! And I’d love to hear your own ideas in the comments!
I don’t know what it is yet — and it better not be superhero fatigue — but I remain merely whelmed when it comes to these Spider-Man: Homecoming trailers.
This looks great. There’s no denying that. I definitely like Tom Holland as Spider-Man. I like the stuff with Iron Man. I like the civilian stuff we’re seeing with Peter Parker at school. And I like the look of the Vulture here. Michael Keaton is going to be great, hopefully.
But just in general, overall, I’m just OK with the trailers we’ve seen so far. And OK is fine. I’m still going to see the movie opening night and probably love it — hopefully love it.
Heck, I loved both Amazing Spider-Man movies, so maybe I’m not one to talk…
