Should Michael B. Jordan Be Cast As The Next Superman?

After Henry Cavill stepped down from the role of Superman in a shocking announcement that rocked the internet people have already begun wondering who the next Superman should be. One choice that has fans super excited is the prospect that Creed/Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan will assume the role of Superman. If that were to happen it could change how we view iconic superheroes, for it would be the first time a black man played the role of Superman.

Now while I totally support that and think that would be very awesome the idea of Michael B. Jordan playing Superman doesn’t exactly sit well with me.

He’s a great actor, no doubt about that, but one thing you never want to do is to saturate an exciting talent. Michael B. Jordan did such a fantastic job playing Erik Killmonger in Black Panther that I kind of can’t see him in any other superhero type of role, leastwise as Superman!

It’ll feel a bit strange seeing him transition from Marvel to DC in that way and I don’t think it would be a great idea. Now I’m sure he could easily pull it off but I just don’t know if I want to see him as Superman.

But, at the end of the day, it’s up to the producers behind the DC Universe. If they like the idea of Michael B. Jordan as the next Superman then I’ll have to wait and see whether it’ll be awesome or not. And if it is awesome I’ll be even more of a Michael B. Jordan fan.

This is just my opinion on the Superman recasting situation. Honestly, I don’t know who should be the next Superman but I can’t wait to see who it’ll be. 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

It’s Official. ‘Venom’ Is Rated PG-13

Three weeks ago I wrote a post displaying my opinion on whether Venom should have a PG-13 or R rating and just this past weekend the film’s official rating has been released along with its run time. As you can see from this post’s title the film will, indeed, be PG-13 after all which totally makes sense. Sony is trying to make as much money as they can with this movie and that means appealing to a wider base rather than focusing on just adults.

Sony also issued a statement for their reasoning behind the rating saying they wanted to give Venom a PG-13 rating so that Venom may confront Spider-Man in the future (remember, Tom Hardy has already signed on to three Venom movies.)

Even though it’s not going to be rated R that doesn’t exactly mean the film won’t be in any way scary. For the longest time I thought The Dark Knight was rated R because of its disturbing imagery and The Joker’s troubling antics but turns out it was PG-13. That proves that a movie can be PG-13 and still be as dark as any rated R film.

I Think The ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer Is Coming Out Next Week!

Last week Entertainment Weekly released an awesome spread giving us our first look at the highly anticipated Captain Marvel. Now it seems that we’ll be getting a trailer for the film by at least next Tuesday! Isn’t that exciting?

Ever since the end-credits scene in Infinity War teasing Captain Marvel’s inclusion in Avengers 4 I’ve been super excited to see what this new character is all about. And with all of those interesting photos that were released my excitement for the film has burst through the roof. To know that we’ll most likely be getting a trailer sometime next week is beyond incredible and I. CAN’T. WAIT to talk about it.

So, if you were wondering, like me, when we may see the trailer for this film wonder no further because it’s coming out soon. 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.

 

Mark Hamill Is At It Again

Every once in a while Mark Hamill likes to tease fans about Star Wars and in the past couple of days he decided to mess with Star Wars fans by teasing the title of Episode IX with two cryptic tweets. Here’s the first one.

And then this is the tweet he released yesterday morning.

Lol. Mark Hamill is hilarious. I’m pretty sure Episode IX isn’t going to be titled Star Wars: The Purpose. But his first tweet saying that the title starts with THE sounds actually legitimate.

These Are the X-Men Characters I Want To See in the MCU

The last time I wrote a post displaying the X-Men I wanted to see in the MCU Disney had just bought Fox. Since then I’ve watched X-Men: Days of Future Past and so I have a greater idea of the X-Men I like and the ones I don’t care so much for. So, on that note, here’s an updated version of the X-Men I want to see in the MCU.

Magneto

I didn’t realize how cool Magneto was until my recent viewing of Days of Future Past. Then I realized how awesome this character actually was. I think Magneto would be positively epic in a MCU setting and I’m hoping Kevin Feige is thinking the same as me.

Jean Grey

First of all, if you may not know (I just found this out too) Jean Grey, in one of those Marvel comics, met the Guardians of the Galaxy. It was a crossover event between the Guardians and the X-Men and so they had to fight together to stop some powerful villain (I don’t know who that was.) So that can be put into context.

Secondly, she’s really cool. Before I knew what the X-Men were I knew Jean Grey and I think she would be a fantastic heroine to join the MCU.

Ben Affleck Is Officially Out as Batman

A couple of days ago it was announced that Henry Cavill was no longer playing Superman and on the heels of that shocking announcement it seems that Ben Affleck is stepping away as well. Now, this was rumored since Justice League came out so it isn’t much of a surprise but it’s still a little jarring seeing two of the DCEU’s biggest heroes step down in the same week.

Now the casting for another Batman must begin. I’m excited. 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

Will Everett Ross Make a Cameo Appearance in ‘Captain Marvel’?

A couple of days ago I watched one of my favorite superhero films, Black Panther, and one of the characters I really enjoy in the movie is Deputy Task Force Commander Everett Ross. He debuted in Captain America: Civil War with a menial role that didn’t mean much but ended up playing a major role in Black Panther which is so cool. Here was this character that I didn’t really think about and it turns out he kind of ended up being really important.

One of the moments in the movie that stuck out to me while recently viewing the film was when Shuri relays that he is an Air Force pilot. Now, I already knew this of course, but with Captain Marvel becoming the next film to look forward to, the Air Force has suddenly become a lot more important.

Captain Marvel is set in the 90s’ so does that mean we may potentially see a younger version of Everett Ross as an Air Force pilot? Wouldn’t that be awesome?

I think it would be a fantastic cameo and would really shine an even greater light on this somewhat important character.

What do you think? Should Everett Ross have a surprise cameo appearance in Captain Marvel? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

I. Love. MOVIES!
