13 Jan

Another Ant-Man Casting? A few days later and I would have to write this up on a plane again. Looks like Paul Rudd with not be playing Hank Pym in the new Ant-Man movie, that role has been reserved for Michael Douglas! Paul Rudd with be playing the long suspected Scott Lang who will likely steal the Ant-Man suit/technology from the cranky old Michael Douglas.

Marvel’s Kevin Fegie announced the role today

“With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. “We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn’t be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life.”

So what do you think Internet, are you more or less excited now for Ant-Man?

Ant-Man casting rumors were true!

18 Dec

20131218-200518.jpg

Well time to take another drink, looks like Hollywood tried to pull the wood over our eyes once again. It looks like Paul Rudd will be the new Ant-Man in the marvel cinematic universe. We talked a little about this a few podcasts ago and we were of split mindset. Will Paul Rudd be serious enough or will they go with a lighter version of Ant-Man?
Most important, why does Hollywood always deny deny and then confirm the rumors? Is it to avoid something like the internet’s reaction to Batfleck? Are we secretly participating in a focus group before the movie studios offer contracts to these actors? Or are agents using the internet to up the deals they can get? Whatever the reason it’s beginning to feel a little like Peter and the Wolf, how many times can they deny until we call blasphamy!
And for your personal reference here is the most recent video of Paul Rudd denying Ant-Man
Along with the article confirming he really will be the new Ant-Man by Variety
Talk to us loyal listeners, what are your thoughts on this casting?

Marvel and Netflix: Ultimate Team-up?

7 Nov

marvel-logo

Marvel is looking to take over all forms of media in 2015. In a recent press release Netflix and Disney announced that they will be bringing four of their new shows to the streaming s

creens. These four serialized programs will be considered a Mini-series event and will be focused on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage individually. Each series will air thirteen episodes and will be tied off with a bow in a final event called The Defenders.

This is a groundbreaking event in the streaming world that will make huge impacts in the television world and possibly the comic book world. Marvel is putting their heroes in every medium and soon characters that only had a small fan base will be flying off the shelves faster than Batman comic books.

Between Marvel’s multi-platform premiers, DC’s Batman vs. Superman and Star Wars returning to the big screen it’s clear that 2015 belongs to the Geeks!

Avengers 2: Casting News

3 Oct

Elizabeth OlsenWell the internet has something new to argue about today. Not sure if it will create the same backlash as Batfleck but it might come close. An Olsen is coming to the land of Marvel. Not Mary Kate or Ashley but their younger sister Elizabeth Olsen has been cast as the Scarlet Witch per Samuel L. Jackson in a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal.

”I know we’re shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen [who will play the Scarlet Witch], but I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script.”

So internet what do you think about the newest member of the Avengers? is she worthy of fan-boy and fan-girl love?

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Take 2

2 Oct

Well who saw that coming? And by that, I mean Agent May breaking her own wrist to escape the hostage situation in the cargo bay. This week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a solid action packed episode, but I’m not 100% sure I’m in love with this show yet.

The episode kicked off with Skye joining the team as a “consultant” and the team off in search of a 084 sighting in Peru. We learn that a 084 means Object of Unknown Origin and this one turns out to be some old Hydra weapon left around for the Peru military to find/take advantage of. Peru was enlightening as we learned Coulson is quite the ladies’ man and dare I say might have a lady at every port? Coulson you sly dog! The team bumbles the extraction of the 084 and ends up having to retreat back to the S.H.I.E.L.D. “Bus” along with the Peru militants and their Comandante.

Agent Ward kicking butt!After some light flirting with Coulson we realize Comandante Reyes isn’t interested in rekindling their romance but getting her hands on the 084. The Agent Scoobies realize the same intent, but unfortunately are overtaken and end up tied together in the cargo bay. Agent Ward, inspired by the high stakes to take on the Captain American mantle or in an effort to ingratiate himself into Skye’s pants, suggests they use her theory of crowd sourcing to find a solution to their problem. Next follows a fun action scene and the usual “oh no he’s going to die, but not really cause he’s on next week” drama, and Agent Scoobies save the day.

Nick Fury Cameo

Only catch, while saving the day they blew a hole in their plan/bus, which makes a certain one eyed someone not very happy. If you stayed until the very end of the episode you saw Nick Fury and Coulson argue over the damage to the plane and Fury’s
Overall the second episode felt a little formulaic and had some lazy plot devices. Here’s hoping they add more meat to these episodes in the weeks to come.apprehensiveness with Coulson’s team of misfits. It was a fun cameo, not a big plot point, but enjoyable none the less. Oh I almost forgot, anyone catch Skye’s mysterious text from The Rising Tide, and her equally cryptic response of “I’m in” I thought she was the rising tide, is she just a sneaky double agent? Hmm intrigue!

Pros:

  • Love watching the wonder twins and all their tech, especially the little dwarf machines.
  • Coulson as a ladies man, what can’t that man do?!
  • “Don’t call me that” Cavalry, best nickname ever!

Cons

  • Using the raft to plug the hole in the plane. That whole storyline felt overly planned, here’s the pamphlet in the first 5 minutes, oh that will be important later.
  • Agent Ken Doll Ward and Skye romance seemed a little cheesy this week. Hopping it gets more organic in the weeks to come.
  • Join us next week for a live tweet-fest Tuesday at 8pm EST and Wednesday for our recap.
