Hey guys, I'm sure you saw Marvel Studios release plans for its film slate going through 2019 yesterday on the Interwebs. I give you my thoughts on what was said and what it could mean for Marvel's future in this FreakSugar article. (Also: I'm the Jed from the name of the title.) http://www.freaksugar.com/marvel-...

Conjecture and speculation! Will new characters introduced in The Avengers: Age of Ultron be used as lead-ins to some of Marvel's other Phase 3 films? I hazard a guess in this Nerd Bastards article. http://nerdbastards.com/2014...

"Marvel wasn't going to let the recent announcement of 10 forthcoming DC Comics movies go unanswered: On Tuesday at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, Marvel laid out its own slate of films in its so-called "Phase 3," going into 2019. Marvel announced the full titles of nine new films (in addition to the already announced "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Ant-Man"). Here's a complete rundown of the new films and what they mean: Captain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016) Civil War was one of the most iconic storylines in modern comics, pitting Captain America against Iron Man in a battle over civil liberties as the government called for heroes to register their secret identities with the government. Iron Man sided with the government while the American icon Cap stood for his freedom-centric ideals. At the Marvel event, they teased fans by initially announcing Cap 3 as "Serpent Society" — a lesser known supervillain organization — but it turned out to be a misdirect before Civil War was... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

I haven't been able to afford comics on a regular basis since the early 2000s so there are a lot of things I'm out of the loop for. I have to admit being shocked Guardians of the Galaxy was an important enough property to license for a film. I vaguely remember when Rocket Racoon first hit the stands. But don't remember the team.
Was the comic a really popular reboot? - Spidra Webster
A bit. A few years back, Marvel rolled out a crossover called Annihilation that highlighted a lot of the company's cosmic characters. Guardians spun off that event. Didn't think it was as big a hit to warrant a movie, even though I loved the film. - Jed from iPhone
They were apparently successful in building up demand for the property, which is surprising given that it featured no blue chip characters. - Spidra Webster
The comics briefly featured one of my favorite cosmic characters, Adam Warlock. There are hints that he will be in the next Guardians movie. - Jed

The Naruto Manga Is Ending Next Month. Believe It!
To be completely honest, I agree with the author about Naruto & Bleach having become a mess with their stories in the last few years. So having both of them end doesn't upset me. I really couldn't see how Naruto could move forward after the end of it's current story arch anyway. As for Bleach I really do not like what they have done. They both had good long runs though. - Bluesun 2600 from Bookmarklet

DC Comics has been announcing all sorts of live-action TV series for development, and here's another: LUCIFER. I love the comic and I think it's a helluva good idea. (PUNS). I give you the lowdown in this FreakSugar article. http://www.freaksugar.com/new-luc...
I think it's iffy at best, and I really like the comic. One, the demands for VFX/CGI will be insanely high, and two, as much as I like it, IMO Lucifer doesn't have much of an arc. - Andrew C (✔)
I have concerns about the effects, too. I think it'll be interesting to see how Constantine pulls thst off. - Jed from iPhone
But John Constantine lives in London (I guess the show is moving him to America?) for the most part and there are occasional magical intrusions into the real world. Huge huge huge chunks of Lucifer take place in alternate worlds or Hell or the Silver City. They'd practically have to do it all greenscreen or something for entire arcs. - Andrew C (✔)
Oh I agree. Just thinking aloud... or on the Internet, I suppose. - Jed from iPhone

This Is the New Batmobile—And It's Kinda Ugly | WIRED
"Director Zack Snyder posted this image of the Batmobile on Twitter last night. Zack Snyder Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder took to Twitter last night to reveal Batman’s latest ride, and … well, fans of the sleek lines of the classic 1966 and 1989 Batmobiles might want to just look away now before it gets too painful. Here’s the thing: Understandably the Batmobile isn’t just any car, and has to deal with all manner of problems and situations more complicated than “parallel parking on a busy city street” or “where to put all the groceries,” but why that means that the Batmobile has to look more like a Transformer than, you know, a car is a bit hard to grok. It seemed unlikely that the Tumbler from The Dark Knight could ever be regarded as an understated take on Batman’s town car, but apparently that’s where we’ve reached. By the time Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader gets his first solo movie, it wouldn’t be the least bit surprising if the next generation Batmobile... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
