Ain’t no stopping Fun-Size Friday now, we’re on the move! Moving and grooving through another week of quarantines, films and television shows getting delayed, and generally a lot of video-conferencing. All of which means we’ve got extra reason to focus on some of the good stuff that came out this week, preferably in 200 word chunks or less. Alright then, let’s see what fruit fell off the pop culture wagon this week!Continue reading “Fun-Size Friday | 4-3-20 | Something Something Toilet Paper Joke!”
You may not be entirely aware of this, or perhaps you just ignored it, but we have a Venom movie coming to theaters pretty soon. Oh cool, you might be thinking, another Marvel movie featuring a classic Spider-Man villain! So does this take place before Infinity War or what? Well interestingly enough, Venom actually takes place in it’s own isolated universe separate from the other Marvel heroes. That means no Infinity War, no Avengers, and no Spider-Man.
This is all part of the Sony Universe of Marvel Characters, a new “cinematic universe” that Sony has been trying to get off the ground since The Amazing Spider-Man 2. If Venom turns out to be the big hit Sony clearly wants it to be, the studio already has plans for movies featuring other characters like Silver Sable, Jackpot, and Morbius the Living Vampire, to name but a few. Whether or not this experiment succeeds, the idea of making movies based on these Spider-Man characters, without Spider-Man actually being in them, intrigued me.
It got me to thinking, as long as Sony is looking for ideas, perhaps I could pitch a few of my own. Full disclosure: I haven’t really put a ton of thought into these; I’m basically just pulling names out of a hat here and seeing what I can come up with. On that note, presented in no particular order are ten movie pitches for movies Sony could totally use for their cinematic universe, each in a hundred words or less!Continue reading “What’s Next After VENOM? Here’s Ten Movies SONY Could Totally Make (But Probably Shouldn’t)”
SUP, SQUARE! YOU FEELING EXCITED YET?
Almost never. Why, what’s happening?
WELL IT LOOKS LIKE DISNEY’S ACQUISITION OF 21ST CENTURY FOX IS JUST ABOUT COMPLETED. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!
I think it means that Disney has absorbed major assets of yet another global multi-billion dollar company, significantly reducing their competition in several key markets and moving them one step closer to actual world domination.
NO, GOOF! IT MEANS THAT WE’LL FINALLY SEE THE FANTASTIC FOUR AND THE X-MEN IN THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE!
WHAT WAS THAT OTHER STUFF YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT?
I dunno. Who cares? Yeah, X-Men!
YEAH, FANTASTIC FOUR!
Yeah, life is great as long as I don’t think about it too hard!
I GUESS THIS MEANS MARVEL STUDIOS HAS ACCESS TO ALL OF IT’S OWN CHARACTERS NOW.
Well, almost? I mean, they’re nearly there. It’s complicated.
