Spider-Man: Into The Uncanny Valley

This is interesting. The video below shows (supposedly) an animatronic version of Spider-Man that’s going to appear in the Avengers Campus exhibition coming to Disney California Adventure Park that I learned of via Superherohype. And it looks pretty interesting, but if you look closer it resides firmly in the uncanny valley because it’s missing one […]

Watching October Faction…

I’m watching October Faction on Netflix, and it’s just not resonating with me. It’s been so hard to focus on it that I’ve been jumping between playing Tune Blast, watching Rolling Stone’s Useful Idiots AND an interview with Chris DiStefano on Tigerbelly (the latter I stopped because no matter how handsome he is, few things […]

Is Moon Knight Too Violent For Disney+?

Moon Knight is one of my favorite comic characters–that’s my bust on the left–and while I’m glad to hear that the character is getting a bit of love from Marvel, I have to ask if Disney+ is the right place for the character. Moon Knight, like most characters, has gone through various incarnations though interestingly […]

Ryan Reynolds Adds to His Portfolio

Ryan Reynolds, of Deadpool fame, is quite the entrepreneur. First, in 2018 (or thereabouts) Reynolds purchased Aviation Gin, which you likely knew if you saw 6 Underground on Netflix because if it were featured more prominently I’d be surprised if everyone who watched didn’t receive a free bottle. And he apparently isn’t done because recently […]

I Suspect I Know Who’s Going To Replace Scott Derrickson on Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness

Mainly because I think I have a good idea of what Marvel Studios is looking for. While Scott Derrickson is leaving the project, he’s staying on as Executive Producer, which implies an amicable parting with Marvel. Now, the title ‘Executive Producer’ is potentially as meaningless as “creative differences” but assuming that relations between the director […]

Scott Derrickson Has Left Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Derrickson has left Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. The article sites “creative differences (essentially a meaningless term)” and while it seems that that the parting was amicable (Derrickson remains as executive producer), something tells me that the reason for his leaving was his intention […]

The Confusion of Skywalker

Help men understand this. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has been one of the worst reviewed Star Wars films EVER (based on nothing more than the vitriol directed at the movie. And I recall the reception the prequels received. It wasn’t great–though initially was surprisingly positive–but nor was there such a consensus around their […]

DC Universe Is Dead. Bury It

To paraphrase Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. DC Universe, the streaming channel dedicated to all things DC Comics, is finished. There’s been no announcement to that effect, but  the writing’s on the wall. First Swamp Thing was cancelled before it’s first EPISODE! And now Stargirl, a new series coming to DC Universe, […]
