A Geeky Fix to a Bad Monday!

I have been having a stressful and crazy Monday. So what can make a good geek laugh more than some Marvel Agents of SHIELD Bloopers. I hope it picks up you day too!!!!

OK, this Monday is rough enough that I need 2 sets of bloopers.

The Hobbit Himself Joining Captain America: Civil War

It has been announced that Martin Freeman will be joining the cast of Captain America: Civil War!

We don’t know anything about who he will be playing but Kevin Feige said, “We couldn’t be more honored or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” I am hoping this means he will appear in more than just one movie;)!

Who do you hope he plays in Captain America:Civil War?

1 Month Until Daredevil and a New Trailer

It is only 1 month until the Daredevil series premieres on Netflix! They released a new Daredevil trailer on the Netflix Youtube channel. It seems to expand out Daredevil’s origin story with mentions of training and not just seeing him be blind as a child. What I am not clear on is if Kingpin is a party to Matt Murdock’s decision to become Daredevil. Or is this going to be very flashback based like Arrow (I hope not)?

We also got a real exposure to Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin! It is kind of weird, just because I am used to him with hair. I am sure he will do a good job.

Can’t wait for the launch on April 10, 2015 on Netflix!!!!

Spiderman is Taking His Place in the Marvel Universe

When Marvel started making movies after the Disney buyout we all began wondering if the Marvel movie universe would ever be united. The first step in unification has been announced!

Sony and Marvel have announced that Spiderman will be appearing in a Marvel movie before the next installment of the Sony Spiderman series. Then Kevin Feige will co-produce the new Spiderman movie and will help craft the new creative direction for Spiderman. But the Spiderman movies will remain in financial and final creative control of Sony.

This is really interesting. And I wonder what this means for the future unification of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (SMU)? Is Sony going to be the only studio to play ball? I think that would be a mistake for the other studios but we shall see!

David Tennant Makes Marvel Even Better

Marvel made a really cool announcement… One that will make Marvel Whovians extra happy..

That’s right, David Tennant! David Tennant will be joining the Jessica Jones project that will be on Netflix after Daredevil! He will be playing Kilgrave.

I am super stoked. And we know that is will be coming later in 2015 or in 2016, so not as long as many of the other promised Marvel offerings.

Are you excited about the new casting announcement? Who would you like to see them casting next?

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron Trailer

The 2nd Age of Ultron trailer has hit the interwebs! I am really interested to see how The Vision and the Scarlet Witch’s story lines will compare to the comic books.

I am also curious who the scruffy man is. He reminds me of Wolverine (not Hugh Jackman but the character;) but we know that can’t be. And he doesn’t look like Paul Bettany to me so he can’t be The Vision. Hmm… I haven’t researched at all yet so I may report back;).

So what do you think? Are you excited or already disappointed because of the changes to the stories we already know? I am excited and looking for to this premiere and the Daredevil show that will premiere in April. Big spring for Marvel!

I do believe that Marvel will soon run the world;). So can we get Iron Man to pop over to France to deal with things;)?

Official Word on Cumberbatch and Doctor Strange

DoctorStrange

It feels like we have been talking about Doctor Strange forever! But finally we have real and official news!

The illustrious and much drooled over Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be playing Doctor Stephen Strange. Yes, it is true. We finally have a title actor for the movie that won’t start filming until like summer of 2015 and won’t come out until November of 2016. Just kidding, sort of.

I have been following the “who will play Strange” path all along. I must say, I thought Joaquin Phoenix would have been great too. Not as good as Cumberbatch but good. But it does feel a little silly how on the edge of our seat we have all been about it.

That said, it is going to be fantastic! In 2 years;).

A Fantastic Add to Marvel’s Agent Carter

I am already anxiously awaiting the new Marvel tv series called Agent Carter. I mean why wouldn’t I love a series based on a bad ass, kick butt woman who also helped found SHIELD? I mean, what is not to love? Well, I can’t tell you what isn’t to love but I can say I love it even more;)!!

They have added Chad Michael Murray and Enver Gjokaj to the cast. Chad Michael Murray is fine. He is best known from One Tree Hill. I have seen him in a variety of things and he hasn’t sucked but that isn’t why I am excited. Enver Gjokaj!!! He is probably best know from DollHouse and that is where I discovered him too! In season 2 of Dollhouse Enver Gjokaj did a bit where he was playing Fan Kranz’s character that was phenomenal. I think he is one of the most under appreciated actors out there!

(I tried to find a clip of that fab performance but can’t find it anywhere! Go watch Dollhouse’s Left Hand episode from season 2)

Guardians of the Galaxy – Gamora Featurette and a Game!

Guardians of the Galaxy Game

Guardians of the Galaxy will be opening soon on August 1st! But to tie us all over there are a couple of tasty little things!

There is a new game called Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon. It ranges between $7.99 (from the Windows Store) or $4.99 (from the Windows Phone Store). It looks super cute and there is a trailer of for the game!

There is also a new featurette all about Gamora.

It looks like she is going to be a great, strong female character. I have really been impressed with how well Marvel has been handling and empowering these character. Of course I naturally give Joss Whedon all the credit but…

So who is planning on checking out as soon as it hits theaters?

Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer

This isn’t a super new trailer but cute. But there is a little snippet that seems to tell you even more about the movie.

I am expecting a kind of kitsch movie but I think it will also look pretty awesome too. I don’t come to it with a whole lot of foreknowledge so it will all be new to me.

How about you? Are you familiar with the Guardians of the Galaxy comics? Do you have high expectations? Let me know in the comments!
