What does Death mean in The Marvel Cinematic Universe?

On May 4th Avengers Infinity War becomes a reality, and for at least 10 years, we have been focusing on those damn infinity gems. Where are they, which one is which, and who currently has them? Also, how prepared will Earth be? Will we see S.W.O.R.D.? How hard core will Thanos be?

Thanos and Death MARVELMy question after Black Panther, however, is not on Thanos or the infinity gems so much, but more on what all of this was about to begin with, for Thanos at least. His number one motivation in the comic? To impress a woman… The Woman. Death herself.

Will the story start off with Thanos killing a bunch of people with the Infinity Gauntlet only for Death to not be impressed? Will Thanos then have to fight for her affection his self? And since this is the woman who basically has the mantle most commonly refereed to as The Grimm Reaper… will that come into play at all?

Red Skull Cosmic CubeI’m sorry. I’m beating around the bush. Red Skull is either dead or just M.I.A. since Captain America: The First Avenger.  In Avengers, Agent Coulson dies but comes back in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. resurrected. Will either of these characters play a role?

quicksilver age of ultronQuicksilver was killed in Avengers: Age of Ultron after he gets spoilers heroically while spoilers spoilers out of the way of the spoilers. I had thought that he was going to return during Thor Ragnarok in Valhalla, but maybe he comes back during this movie, possibly as a bad guy zombie character or something.

Ronan The AccuserRonan The Accuser from Guardians of The Galaxy? Who cares. I would literally rather see Luke Cage’s wife come back to life than Ronan The Accuser. The Purple Man? More interesting of a character than Ronan… but let’s get real… outside of some cameos here and there… none of the TV characters are showing up…

Peggy_Carter…unless it’s Agent Peggy Carter. They made it a point to have Peggy pass away during Captain America: Civil War, but before that, Peggy appeared in a vision to Captain America thanks to Scarlet Witch’s… hex… powers? Seriously… I have no idea what Scarlet Witch can do in this universe. Telekinesis and telepathy? Anyways, that happened in Age of Ultron when everyone was having plot points revealed to them as hallucinations.

Maybe Hella will come back. She is the goddess of death, while not death herself, right?

In that next big movie, Civil War, Tony Stark had to deal with the fact that Bucky, as The Winter Soldier, murderd Tony’s mother and father on the side of the road.

Black panther movieWill Cap see a vision of Peggy? Scarlet Witch see her brother Quicksilver? Tony see his mother and father? Will Bucky be haunted by them and his other victims from his Winter Soldier days? Will Drax see his wife again? Star Lord his mother? Most importantly though, will T’challa see his spoilers again? Will he have to fight spoilers all over again?

For a movie universe that supposedly doesn’t kill a lot of people, there certainly has been a little bit of a toll recently.. and…

oh my god!

DID THEY LEAVE OUT UNCLE BEN IN SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING SO HE CAN BE IN AVENGERS INFINITY WAR?!?!?

*gasps for air*

death and thanosOr, you know… whatever.

I just hope that Marvel does not just push aside Death. She is a strong independent woman who needs no Thanos and she deserves to be seen, felt, and above all else… feared.

Ant-Man and Wasp

I had 0 expectations for the new Ant-Man and Wasp movie, but now that I’ve seen the trailer… I can’t wait. It might look a little bad, but it looks extremely fun! Besides the trailer… here is a breakdown of the trailer from Screen Rant

 

Ant-Man and Wasp comes out July 6, 2018.

Teen Titans GO Movie

*Sigh*

*sigh*

Did X-Men The Animated Series get a movie? Gargoyles? BATMAN?! Okay… maybe that last one… several times of different levels of quality… let me backtrack…

Apparently Cartoon Network has chosen now to release a movie for their super popular show Teen Titans Go, which makes sense because it is has been dominating their schedule lately while main stays like Steven Universe, Adventure time, etc… are barely ever shown. So yay Teen Titans movie?

I’d be excited if it was for literally any other show almost. Ed Edd & Eddy reunion movie? SURE! World of Gumball? Haven’t seen much of it, but why not? Power Puff Girls? No…. you had one already too… when you were a good property.

I just wish that The Original Teen Titans show would come back as a movie, ya know? I mean, they have the voice actors… obviously… and DC loves making direct to DVD movies… but sure. Teen Titans Go… Theatrical Movie. Maybe it’s satirical and will be the next Lego Batman movie?

Fuck 2018.

Christmas is over, long live Christmas?

Tenchi christmasIt is now December 25th, and I can finally see the end of the tunnel. I work in retail, and I live in The Greater Houston Area, so I’ve been super busy since Hurricane Harvey. A lot of stores went down in the area next to ours, and yeah… Super busy since late August… and I wont really catch a break until January 2nd… but whatever… Christmas is a major milestone to get pass… so no we… can… finally… rest, right?

kof steamI ended up buying some of the games on Steam for the Christmas sale… namely KOF XIV and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3… which, you know… fun. *sigh*

Also, I saw Darkest Hour and Jumanji in the theater today because AMC 24 was one of the few places open today and I was bored and hungry… so that’s something.

ranma-one-half-1-2-animerica-coverI hope everyone had an amazing holiday season this year, and if not… well… 2017 is over pretty soon… so… yeah. There’s that? Good night/morning everyone!

 

 

What if ?! Disney gets The X-Men.

It looks like Disney might be buying Fox sometime soon, and that means a lot of things will happen. One of those things, is that Disney will own the rights for Fox’s Marvel properties… i.e. The X-Men and The Fantastic Four. Below I’m going to take a look at how I think Marvel  could quickly incorporate The X-Men into one of the next phases.

Giant-Size_X-Men_Vol_1_1The Avengers fight a Krakoa like monster that was seen in Giant Size X-Men #1 and rescue the X-Men. Krakoa’s biology has somehow kept the mutants in cryogenic sleep for a few decades. Apparently this had happened while they were fighting Magneto and his brotherhood in space on Asteroid M… thus the reason we do not know about mutants is because the major players were just M.I.A.

250px-Mystique11Jean Gray had apparently died, but will later come back as The Phoenix. Wolverine had fought with the team briefly but will team up and join The X-Men, once he learns that they are back. Also, Mystique is allowed to be as old as she wants, so have her still on Earth doing spy stuff… maybe a connection to both WWII Cap, Bucky, and for more recent and controversial reasons… Mystique had a relationship with Black Widow but as a man?

200px-Classic-X-Men-008-backFirst movie, Avengers rescue and team up with The X-Men against Krakoa and The Brother Hood. This gives fans the much needed “I want to see them fight and fight against each other.” Throw Colossus, Gambit, Rogue, and Morph on The Brotherhood. They all end up having to race the clock to get outside of an exploding Krakoa-thing to wherever… maybe Brotherhood goes to the abandoned Asteroid M, while X-Men and Avengers head back to Earth.

Second movie, Wolverine drives to X-Mansion now that he knows that The X-Men are back. Visits Jeans grave… BAM! Phoenix happens because the psychic presence of The X-men and Charles are back on Earth and she resurrects Jean as her way back into things. Is it a little sloppy? Maybe, but whatever. You can have them fight whatever you want… Maybe a dark version of Xavier, because the third movie?

getmystiqueShiar are introduced, Maybe The Star Jammers, definitely connect them to Guardians of The Galaxy and/or Captain Marvel, but certainly make sure that by the end of things Xavier has to go to The Shiar home world for medical treatment. Now during this time, I have no doubt that there will have been one off movies where Wolverine had a spin off, maybe a Classic X-Men story before Krakoa.

Maybe Mystique and Black Widow have a spin off movie with each other or even do a trilogy about Mystique that ends with the story line where Wolverine has to hunt her? He could hunt her for all 3 movies, people would watch that. Also, throw Captain Marvel vs. Rogue in somewhere along the line.

AVphoenixI do not know where they should throw Dark Phoenix into any of this. That might be it’s own phase, honestly.

Also, distance Deadpool. Let him be just a side story. He’s awesome, but he’s more of a commentary on this whole thing at this point… but who knows what Deadpool 2 is going to do, right?

back to the futureThere are two things I think everyone should know about me… I love The Back to The Future trilogy, and I hate Holiday creep. One of the interesting things to me about the series, besides the fact that Doc Brown doesn’t try and create bio diesel to drive the DeLorean back to the future in part 3, is that Marty goes back in time for a week, Nov. 5, 1955 – Nov. 12, 1955 and there is absolutely nothing still up from Halloween and nothing for Thanksgiving, let alone Christmas

back to the future holidayIn 2017, holiday creep is a serious threat. I’m writing this around the same time of year that Marty went into, and my goodness… Thanksgiving just isn’t a thing to decorate for, meanwhile, I’ve seen some Christmas decorations in stores since late September, early October.

The 1950’s might have been a truly better time… you know… for respecting the boundary lines between holidays, if nothing else.
