Modern Superhero Movies And The Companies That Make Them

36166

Let’s talk about the Amazing Spider-Man film series, shall we? As you may know Sony has rebooted the Spider-Man film franchise with its first movie in 2012. It made sense, the original Sam Rami helmed Spider-Man movies were successful and in its wake the superhero movie genre had exploded. Christopher Nolan proved that the general public can accept a swift reboot of a franchise if it’s done right.

It’s shocking that recently 3 more sequels were announced for the Amazing Spider-Man, the second of which is coming out in the summer of 2014. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to feature both Electro and the Rhino as villains well as Harry & Norman Osborne with a teaser shot of the Green Goblin on a promotional poster. I must admit, the trailer looks pretty good. I’m nervous though that for one, Sony is biting off more than they can chew. Everyone wants to follow the Marvel Cinematic method to create a full bodied universe where characters can cross over and spin off into other films. Here’s the thing, Marvel had a lot of successful properties to include and had a slow build up where each character could be highlighted over a few years thus creating a fervor for them all appearing together in one movie as the Avengers. DC is also trying their hand at the accelerated version of this with the sequel to Man Of Steel by including both Batman and Wonder Woman. Hell, Fox is getting in on it too with X-Men: Days Of The Future Past by combining casts from the First Class as well as the previous 3 installments as a way to help tie in the franchise. That one at least is unique and kind of makes sense a little more given the storyline.

Who Review – The Time of the Doctor

Here we are Evil Geeks, time to unwrap the best present we get every Christmas: The Doctor Who Christmas Special!!!  I’ve been looking forward to this with both limitless anticipation and unlimited dread because we’re getting a new episode of Doctor Who, which is guaranteed to be a spectacular one; but at the same time we’re losing our current Doctor.  It’s Matt Smith’s farewell to the TARDIS and knowing Steven Moffat, there’s going to be a ton of tears when it’s all over.  This is going to be amazing and incredibly rough at the same time.  For the last time, Evil Geeks: GERONIMO!!!

Evil Geek Book Report – Deadpool: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

backgroundGreetings Evil Geekites, it’s been far too long since we’ve chatted about funny books, so I’m back today to right that terrible, terrible wrong.  You may be familiar with some of my past writings on Deadpool, so you know I’m certainly a fan of the character.  When used properly, I think he’s one of the most entertaining sights to see in the Marvel U and this latest story arc in the incredible run that Duggan and Posehn have scripted thus far is a perfect example of Wade being used exactly as he should be.  He’s not just an unending stream of jokes; he’s a man dammit… who just so happens to have an unending stream of jokes coming out of his mouth. Let’s dig a little deeper into the incredibly screwed up mind of Wade Wilson and discuss The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly by Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, featuring art by Declan Shalvey.
