Rushing this out because I almost forgot to post on MerMonday, but I have a few minutes left! Anyways, here are a few awesome pics! Make sure to visit their respective deviant artists to let them know what you think!
No no, Amy Pascal was not going to remove Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, do not worry. Apparently the former head of Sony’s movie division had more feminist plans in mind than that. One that has a sad ending for Peter Parker, but one that makes way for a new hero for the franchise to follow.
The third movie was to take place after both The Sinister Six movie as well as Venom’s movie. During those two movies, the concept of the multiverse would have been brought up, and new characters would have popped up in hopes to making new super heroes.
According to the previous Sony hack, Pascal had plans to have Spider-Man transform into Man-Spider by Venom’s solo movie. Mary Jane Watson was going to show up in Venom, and was going to be pivotal in Amazing Spider-Man 3. In ASM3, MJ was to have been bitten by Man-Spider, only to be saved by Kraven The Hunter.
Pascal wanted a Spider-Woman, and due to Marvel still owning the character Jessica Drew, they had to create one. Due to MJ’s popularity, she was going to become Spider-Woman in the third act in order to stop Peter’s man-spidery rampage, only to have to euthanize Peter by the very end.
While this would have been a sad ending for the trilogy, people at Marvel urged her to do an after credits sequence that mirrored their 2006 storyline, The Other, where a resurrected Peter bursts out of his cocooned dead body confused but alive. Pascal in e-mails said no, and that it was time to step out of the super hero patriarchy, and that MJ was the future of the series.
Sadly, Pascal is no longer at Sony and Marvel sort of is in charge now of The Spider-Man movies. It would have been interesting to watch how this would have all played out.
With Digital Eclipse Software/Capcom’s Disney Afternoon Collection, 6 classic NES games have come to Sony’s console. Not that we are keeping track or anything, but those 6 plus the 6 from Digital Eclipse Software/Capcom’s Mega Man Legacy Collection make that number at least 12 NES games to Nintendo Switch’s virtual console… not existing. Oh, and that means that Xbox One has even more considering it has all of that plus whatever is on Rare Replay… Snake Rattle ‘n’ Roll and whatever else is on there.
Right now, we have no idea if the virtual console games that we own on Wii and Wii U will even transfer onto Nintendo Switch. Because of this and other reasons, I refuse to support Nintendo’s latest console.
All we do know thus far is that Switch’s Virtual Console will allow some sort of online play with old NES and SNES games, and that when it is eventually rolled out that they will let you try out one of those types of VC games for free, each game for a month and then it’s a different game. This is unlike say… Games with Gold that let’s you keep said game as long as you have an online subscription, or Playstation Plus’ service.
So… SNES Classic is coming out one day maybe. Maybe Nintendo will unveil their grand master plan once everyone can’t just walk into a store and buy one of those?
Today for people of the many Christian faith is Easter Sunday. On this day, Jesus Christ was apparently resurrected from the dead after dying 3 days prior due to crucifixion. Crucifixion was a terrible fate under the Roman empire for many people. There were two theifs that happened to also be crucified alongside Jesus btw. Their names were Dismas and Gestas, not that that really matters.
Why doesn’t any of that matter? Because Easter is about rabbits hiding candy eggs for children to find, that’s why. Instead of continuing my ongoing struggle to obtain diabetes, I have instead decided to devote this day to going back to work after a week long vacation.
That… and Bunny Girls!
You see, Bunny Girls started out, to my knowledge, in the year 1960 when gentleman’s magazine Playboy created a club where their waitresses all dressed up in the now infamous playboy bunny outfit that was based on their mascot. Their mascot was a rabbit wearing a tuxedo.
IF you are okay with some nudity, I highly recommend the book 50 years of the Playboy Bunny. It has photos of famous bunnies throughout the years, as well as some behind the scenes stuff as well. I would probably classify this as a ‘coffee table book,’ but since there are some topless photos, umm… you really shouldn’t?
This outfit has been pretty popular in anime. Bulma from the original Dragon Ball comes to mind, as well as Lum and most of the immediate cast from Urusei Yatsura in the OAV Inaba The Dream Maker.
Strangely, Ranma Saotome, from Ranma 1/2 also has gotten in on the action despite the fact that he is originally male.
Speaking of anime, there was an anime called Daicon in Japan. Daicon 3 had a little anime opening for it starring a school girl. Daicon 4 featured the same girl all grown up as a bad ass bunny girl. Below is the video from both.
The people that made these animations later went on to be Studio Gainax. Gainax later went on to make the animem FLCL, where they once again had a character become a bunny girl, this time flying on a guitar instead of a sword.
Now, bunny girls are great, but one of the problems you run into is the question: Are bunny girls sexist? Maybe? Women seem to love them though too… so maybe not?
Naoko Takeuchi would often draw her main character Usagi (Bunny) with rabbit ears, and to the left is a picture of her as a Playboy bunny girl… but that isn’t too sexual, right? I mean, it’s from… the… waist… up…
Takeuchi dressed all of the inner senshi as playboy bunny girls. Awesome. Well… at least there isn’t anything more scandalous than…
Well… at least she isn’t dressed up like an angel in underwear with… *sigh* Happy Easter Naoko Takeuchi. *gah*
To close this out early, because I certainly could keep going… for example:
So year… to close it all out, like I’ve already said, Bunny girls are awesome.
HERE IS AN OLD VIDEO OF A BULMA UNBOXING.
This just in! Apparently the upcoming Avengers movies in The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been put on hold for the next 4 years!
Why was this decision made? Easy. Joss Whedon is unable to pry the Infinity Gauntlet out of the hand… err, hands of President Donald Trump. All of a sudden, Whedon’s Super PAC attempt to prevent Trump’s rise to power makes a lot more sense.
A.K.A. Betty White pregnant at 95?! Sources say that Betty White has not only found a man that is simply out of her world, but she is now expecting!
What is more incredible than this is the how of it all.
The mysterious father to be is apparently a man by the name of Bobby White. Similar name, but that is just a coincidence, right? WRONG!
Betty White’s suitor is more than a distant relative, but in fact Betty White as a man! Bobby comes from a world that is parallel to our own, and at the age of 95 he somehow found himself lost in not just Betty White’s home, but after only just a week, her heart.
While this is all unorthodox, we wish The White’s the best, and can not wait to see their clone’s birth.
And then I and my other roommate did this:
For my roommate that now owns the Switch’s unboxing:
