Venom Movie; Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios Crossover; Fox/Marvel Studios Crossover?


The Venom solo movie was greenlighted a few years back, and it seems that they are finally actually beginning to produce it! They’re making it as a side-movie to The Amazing Spider-Man, and the two series could cross over much like Marvel Studios’s movies.


What’s interesting, however, is that the producer of the Spider-Man films, Avi Arad, mentioned that, if a deal went through between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, Spider-Man could easily end up in a future Avengers movie. Does that mean all of Sony’s newest movies could crossover with the Marvel Cinematic Universe? I sure hope so! Sony currently owns the rights to Ghost Rider, as well; that series is pretty crazy, to say the least; would Marvel Studios even WANT to add that in as well? I know I do; Nic Cage in Avengers 3 would be incredible.


Another recent interview was with a producer of the X-Men films:

She says that she would love it if the X-Men/Fantastic Four (if a reboot is ever made) and Marvel Studios universes collided at some point. But with X-Men: Days of Future Past (essentially X-Men 4), The Wolverine, and Deadpool all coming out in the next 2 or 3 years, the X-Men universe is pretty cohesive on its own (albeit with quite a few plot holes between movies and the horrible X-Men 3 to deal with); would it even be feasible to mesh the two universes together? I personally don’t think so, but Hugh Jackman cameoing in a Marvel Studios film would be amazing.

Comic Reactions: Like a Bunch (Part 1: Avengers)

Seeing Avengers on May 4 has prompted me to do quick reviews on all sorts of comics. I am reading way too many comics, I think. I have been doing this since May 5, and I have about 50 or 100 comics to do quick reviews and reactions for! Prepare for a bunch of dumb comic posts because I am definitely going to have to split these up.

The Nam #14

I did a rap version of this comic on my upcoming album, “The Rap-Off 2”. Look for it soon. But this comic is…. odd. It’s like a silly World War II comic, but the Vietnam War. A highly inappropriate war to do anything with because it was… not a very well-regarded one.

New Avengers #23

Finally. A conclusion to the Osborn-New Dark Avengers-Hammer-Hydra-AIM story thing. It was such a cool concept but it was executed so stupidly. It should have been a comics event, I regret to say. I know events are usually dumb, but this is one story that could have benefited from it! I mean seriously; three of the world’s most dangerous villain groups all teaming up, having acquired the DNA to several major heroes…. and then they are defeated within 12 issues among 2 different comics. Osborn was the crappiest purple final boss ever. But you already know my opinions on this. This issue is dumb because Hulk’s son is a huge deus ex machina plot device, but cool because of the art and that it is the introduction to the new Thunderbolts re-structuring, Dark Avengers! I am subscribing to it starting Dark Avengers #175; I hope it is really good.

New Avengers #25

A touching Jessica-Luke Cage conversation about the dangers of being an Avenger and the protection of their baby. The only problem I have with Bendis’s kind of comic writing in New Avengers is that, while it is really good, it decompresses the comics SO MUCH. It is good for the trade paperback, but not for the issue. Luckily, there are a few other cool scenes in this issue that show Red Hulk being a badass motivational speech giver twice. There’s also a really cool Avengers group shot, of all the current members of the three teams. I count 25 (28 with squirrel girl, jarvis, and Dr. Strange’s helper guy) but I feel like there are a few missing. I know Iron Fist is, even though he was on the previous page…

New Avengers #25

Some weird thing about a bunch of superheroes hundreds of years in the past training some girl who is definitely related to Jean Grey/Phoenix/Hope in some way. She becomes the next Iron Fist and uses the Phoenix’s power…or….something. I have no idea what was going on.

Avengers #24.1

It reintroduces Vision to the world after he was brought back to life by the Scarlet Witch…. just after the Other Vision was killed…. Yeah. I have 2 problems with this comic: 1) The art is ugly. It makes everyone look old. 2) It actually copypastes several pages from Avengers Disassembled. No changes. We are limited to like 32 pages per comic; I don’t want to pay for something already made 10 years ago!
Other than that it’s okay I guess.

Avengers #25

Some really crappy Captain America comic that has nothing to do with AvX at all except for the ending. And the art is bad. Walter Simonson is not bad, but the coloring and inking or something must have gone wrong because it just looks bad.

The Avengers Initiative (One-Shot)

It’s a movie tie-in and an introduction to each of the heroes. Absolutely the most useless print comic I have ever read. Why does this exist?

This week…. #1

As one of the last people on the planet to actually see Batman: The Dark Knight, as I did on Wednesday, I feel ashamed, but the movie was too awesome for that. So to dedicate it, this week will be about some of the best (and worst) Batman games over the years. Mostly the worst.

Here's my card...
