All Things Marvel & DC Thread: Venom Movie Review

Recommended Posts

lol should have watched GOTG 2 before 1 just in the name of science. Some good viewing still left. Patriotism aside, Captain America 1 is enjoyable but I can see it being your least favorite of the bunch left. That list makes me jealous of the generation that gets to grow up binge watching the MCU anew the way I did with the Star Wars OT as a kid.

First Look at Ruby Rose As Batwoman

Batwoman-Elseworlds-Arrowverse-Ruby-Rose-First-Look

The CW has released the first official look at Ruby Rose in her role as Kate Kane/Batwoman.

The character will debut during December's "Elseworlds" crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl.

"Elseworlds" will see Green Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl heading to Gotham City and teaming up with Batwoman after some good, old-fashioned mad science at Arkham Asylum captures the attention of heroes from throughout the multiverse.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow will sit this crossover event out, but if you want to imagine there is a fourth show involved, console yourself in knowing that a Batwoman pilot starring Rose is in development.

The Batwoman costume was designed by four-time Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood, who is no stranger to superheroes. Before designing Batwoman, she worked on costumes for Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and both versions (2001 and 2017) of The Tick.

James Gunn in Talks to Direct, Write 'Suicide Squad 2'

Image result for james gunn suicide squad

In a major turn, it looks like another superhero studio is looking to bring James Gunn back into the fold. After being removed from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it seems like the director is in talks to write and direct Suicide Squad 2 for DC Films and Warner Bros. Picture.

According to a report from The Wrap, it looks like Gunn is being looked at by DC Films to bolster its superhero franchise. Suicide Squad 2 is one of several projects the DCEU has in the works, but no director has been confirmed for the project as of yet.

Right now, the script for the sequel is being finalized now that its first draft is finished. According to Todd Stashwick, a co-writer on Suicide Squad 2, the script came together nicely with David Bar Katz and O'Connor. However, if Gunn is brought in, it seems likely the director-screenwriter will be tasked with overhauling the script entirely.

And it would seem one of his former Guardian's is ready to jump ship with him

 

Dave Bautista Ready for 'Suicide Squad 2' With James Gunn

Today, superhero movie fans were surprised with a new report that James Gunn is in talks to write and direct Suicide Squad 2 for DC Films and Warner Bros. Pictures, but it should come as no surprise that he has the full support of one of his Guardians of the Galaxy stars -- Dave Bautista.

Bautista, who has been vocally supportive of Gunn following his firing from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 earlier this year, took to Twitter to show his enthusiastic support for Gunn potentially moving on to DC Films -- and even wanted to know where he could sign on to be a part of it. Check out the tweet below.

I think DC finally found their niche with the Nolan era, pissed it up the wall in the Batfleck era, and as much as I enjoyed the GOTG, Gunn isnt the fit for DC unless they can tune him into their universe.

 

Dont get me wrong, Gunn is capable of it, I just see his efforts to teach marvel a lesson will fall short and be a final nail in the plebs investment DC cinematic universe.

 

As much as I love both DC and the Star Wars franchises, one has to fall, and Im backing DC. Praying its DC.... I am awaiting the day that a franchise who has an audience on tap, solid print universe at their fingertips, falls on its face because it ignored its roots. The day one flops and never recovers, sounds the day that the plebs refused to accept mediocrity, and the game is forced to rise to the audiences lofty standards. Not hating on DC, but out of it and Star Wars.... easy choice. As long as they both make drivel yet still profit from it, we are destined for more of the same. One must die!

I think it very much depends on what he's coming for like you said, if its to go f u to marvel and basically just make GOTG3 with DC then no it doesn't work but if he is genuinely interested in re working the story I think it could be a massive improvement from the first.

See as much as I love the Star Wars franchise if had to pick I would be the other way round. Im not a hater to anywhere near the degree a lot have people have been but the new cast just aren't that amazing to me they are all fun to watch but nobody stands out like Ford did in the original trilogy. After episode 9 I also don't really know what they will do as I imagine this will be a close on this new trilogy and if Solo is anything to go buy there spin offs aren't looking too promising.

 

One thing I am definitely liking is the comic book accuracy they are trying to go for in most of there movies now (personally never thought I would see the orange Aquaman suit on the big screen).

This will be a telling year for DC if the tail end of 2018 and then 2019 is a flop then you are probably right I could see this likely being the end of the DCEU for at least a couple years.

  1. Wonder Woman 1984 - This is DC's biggest gun after the success of the first one I feel like this is one of the only DC movies that is not starting off with really low expectations. If the sequel is anywhere near as successful then they will definitely have at least one more film with the Wonder Woman trilogy.
  2. Aquaman - Of the new properties that DC is launching I think this is their best bet, people really like Jason Momoa and James Wan is a good director. Plus with so many superhero movies nowadays the underwater setting makes it at the very least unique.
  3. Shazam - I honestly can't judge this one yet, think it will either be a massive success financially as im pretty sure this has a lower budget than usual for a superhero movie or it is just going to get totally panned. Its hard to judge as personally I could see Shazam fitting in to that family superhero that people enjoy like Ant-Man but could be wrong.
  4. Suicide Squad 2 - Look for this to be pushed back to 2020 but currently it is stated as having a 2019 release. This is the one im most worried for as good as I think Gunn could be good but it will carry a lot of baggage, plus Will Smith & Margot Robbie aren't going to be enough anymore the film will actually have to be good to get audiences in this time.

Iron Fist Has Been Cancelled!!!

Image result for iron fist

Iron Fist has lost his chi. Netflix and Marvel have come to mutual decision to end the streaming series after two seasons.

Apparently a much-improved second season was not enough for Marvel and Netflix to order a third season and the story of Danny Rand could end here, depending on what the character's involvement in any potential future Defenders series might be.

Marvel and Netflix delivered the following joint statement to Deadline:

“Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix. Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and showrunners. We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series. While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.”

At some point one of the Marvel Netflix shows was going to become the first one to get cancelled or negotiate its own end. Iron Fist, as undoubtedly the weakest of its peers, would have been a good bet to be the first to get the Stormbreaker of cancellation. Still, this is unexpected to say the least. Not only was season two of the show a lot better than the first, but it ended on some pretty massive cliff-hanger's. Here are the three biggest questions im gutted we wont get any answers to.

  • Daughter's of the Dragon - The chemistry and side story between Misty and Coleen was one of the best parts of the series and with Coleen now being left with the power of the Iron Fist and Misty Knight teasing an "upgrade" version of her arm you would have had a great duo to move the focus on to next season if you wanted Danny' story to take a back seat.
  • Orson Randall's Pistols and the new powers of the Iron Fist - Our whole understanding of how the Iron Fist works is changed by the end of season 2. We've seen Davos master using it with not one but two hands, Coleen can now channel the power of the fist through her sword and Danny can even shoot chi bullets.
  • The Third Alter of Mary Walker - Although she never really took centre stage as the main villain she was my personal favourite throughout the season. And at the end we learn there is an even more dangerous third personality of Mary Walker that has yet to be seen again.

I liked it more than most critics apparently seemed to, was genuinely looking forward to a run of the Immortal Weapons and The Capitol Cities of Heaven,  thought it was unfairly criticised before it was even released by the SJW crowd for its mere existence. Having said that, i dont think this is really a shock to anyone,  and from the rumors im hearing all the Netflix series will be coming to a close sooner rather than later, the queztion is what will Disney do when they launch their stramming service....

I liked Iron Fist season 1.  It did take a bit to get into it, but I'd say the same with JJ and LC. 
Haven't seen season 2 yet.  Are the cliffhangers really massive or is that just some bs?

Yeah same here I was finally kind of excited to see where Danny's story went next had a friend of mine tell me Randall is one of the cooler characters in Iron Fist's universe.

I am reading that something is rumoured to be replacing it.

Im not sure if they can actually do that from what I have read (could be wrong) but think Netflix have a similar deal that Fox to with Disney for the Fantastic Four as long as they keep making content with that character within a certain amount of years I think they retain the rights.

So if they wish to keep going with Daredevil, Punisher, Luke cage and Jessica Jones I think they retain those characters.

Season two is infinitely better than Season one.

Yeah there is two of them that were both kind of cool be interested to see if they dropped Danny in to Luke Cage's show, said that should have happened from the get go they are a duo hell there one of Marvel's most famous duos.

Russia Loves Venom!

Related image

Venom has become an all-time best performer for Sony in Russia, while the movie also has good chances of making the top 10 Hollywood release all-time list.

To date, Venom has grossed 1.59 billion rubles ($24 million), which makes it this year's second-highest-grossing movie locally, behind Disney's Avengers: Infinity War. The latter, which came out in Russia on May 3, has grossed 2.16 billion rubles ($32.7 million).

Venom opened on 1,378 screens Oct. 4 and garnered the third-best opening-weekend performance among all releases in Russia of all time, taking in 953 billion rubles ($14.4 million).

Venom also looks set to make the top 10 list of Hollywood releases in Russia of all time. Currently, the movie is at No. 18 on that list, but it is only 180 billion rubles ($2.7 million) behind No. 10 Deadpool and will stay in theaters for a few more weeks.

Venom Movie Review

WARNING SPOILERS BELOW!!!

Image result for venom

Was very pleasantly surprised with this movie.

After all the controversy of there being no Spider-Man (to which there should really be no Venom) I was ready to just sit down and see if Venom is actually any good and im glad to say I think it was. So will get my bad out of the way first then move on to the good as there's a lot more of that.

The Bad
His Eddie was funny although I thought they maybe made a bit of an error in not making him sympathetic enough before villainizing him with having him stealing Anne's files. And the new boyfriend Dr Dan was a little too nice in the sense I didn't really want to root against him lol. (If I could use Ant-Man for an example Paxton is a great guy in that but they always skew it just enough so you're always rooting for Scott). Last complaint was that it maybe took 10-15 mins longer to get going other than I would have liked. No knock on Ahmed personally but I felt this villain role could have done by just about anyone as in the first couple minutes the establish him as Evil Elon and he never really gets any more development. And finally a dumb one but the old lady taking 6 months to walk to the airport lol.

The Good
Loved the back and fourth between Venom & Eddie and Eddie's horror in the initial exchanges as he things he's going insane. (Also loved the scene with Dan when Eddie's in the MRI, not sure if it was intended as such but you get the sense Eddie didn't know if it was Dan or Venom's voice in his head talking to him so takes his time and eventually he tentatively answers yes). The JUMP!!! scene was hilarious, the whole cinema was laughing at that part. Venom's admittance that he was a loser on his planet, now this may have divided some but I thought it fit nice in giving Venom a reason to side with Eddie while not feeling forced, I think that point was reinforced with Riot. He was physically more imposing than Venom, more lethal and more callous so it kind of made sense why Venom didn't want millions more like him. I really enjoyed Riot actually seemed like a more fleshed out character than his host did. Eddie and Venom use "we" from the get go while Riot has to be reminded by Drake's character a little detail that I thought helped to show a huge difference between the two. I couldn't not mention the scene where he took down the SWAT team that was epic especially COPY!!!!.

 

After Credits Scene

Image result for 10/10 gif

Loved this tease for Kasady, think Harrelson will be perfect for the role. My top Spider-Man villains have always been Venom & Carnage so cant wait to see them face off.
