Welcome back for the final part of the, look I will be completely honest here. I don’t have a cool title for this little mini series here. I could have called it the Fox/Disney merger, or the X-Men/Fantastic Four MCU merger. It should have had a fun and punny titled. Instead I named it after the Phases the MCU uses. It allowed me to number them, and also not confuse people with the numbering for the posts in a row thing I’ve got going on.
Welcome to part two of the untitled multi part thing I’ve got going on here. Yesterday I discussed one possible way I would introduce the X-Men/Fantastic Four characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Today I present the second suggestion/idea/theory. This one is a little longer.
I am pretty sure Disney now owns the film rights to FOX properties which include X-Men and Fantastic Four, so what happens from here?
Producer, Kevin Feige, has been the man behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since its inception way back in 2008 when Iron Man was released in cinemas across the world. Since then, the MCU has managed to pump out 20 plus films, with more in active production and grossed over $17 billion at the box office making it the most successful film franchise of all time.
This is something that needs to be said. Not just something to say because I want to jump on the bandwagon of people hating on the film, no. This is something that I have attempted to put off for many weeks now.
The Last Jedi, is not a good film.
As the lights in the cinema turned on and the credits rolled, my girlfriend of ten years turned to me with a smile on her face and asked me what I thought. My body was numb and my mouth dry from popcorn.
Before I begin, this was originally a follow-up post to something I wrote over a year ago. It was left unpublished and will maybe one day see the light of day…but not sure yet.
After twenty years of buying and collecting comics, I’m going to stop and spend my money on something else.
As I have mention in some of my blogs in the past, I have been actively collecting a selection of Marvel comics since the mid 1990s. Spider-Man, and anything related, throughout that time I usually picked up. And during that twenty plus year period, buying comics has cost me thousands of dollars and years of entertainment. Characters in comics have been friends as well as inspirations. Yet, as I have found lately, comics have just turned to garbage.
Love and Star Wars
Way back in April of 2014, I uploaded a blog titled, A Sad Time In A Galaxy Far Far Away… in which I discussed my feelings toward Lucasfilm changing all extended universe stories to non-canon/legacy status. When writing the blog, I was furious with the decisions made by Lucasfilm, but at the same time I could understood why the choice was made. I’ve left a link above so you can go back and read it, but needless to say, I wasn’t impressed.
Something I’ve always wanted to discuss on my blog, is the latest news from different forms of popular culture. Being a LEGO and movie fan, anything that combines the two is easily at the top of my list. So when news came that LEGO had officially announced the release date for the latest LEGO Ideas set, I just knew that I had to talk about it.
