Summer Time Off, Well July At Least

Hi Everyone.

First let me say to all of you that have chosen to follow this blog of mine a very big thank you. I have been doing this blog now for 3 years and I do love it. But I need to take some time off. I have decided that the month of July I will be taking a break. This break includes this blog, my podcast, Twitter and Facebook. I need to enjoy the short summer we have up in northern Alberta plus I planning a trip to see my mother. So I hope that you will stick around until I return in August.

Thank you all again.

Miles Morales IS Spider-Man

Miles-Morales So it is being reported by many different pop culture news sites that Miles Morales will BE Spider-Man when Marvel reboots it’s line of comics. In a exclusive article in the New York Daily News Miles will be Spider-Man but will be mentored by a grownup and genuine Peter Parker.

Miles Morales was created back in 2011 when Marvel launched the “Ultimate” series of books.  I have very little knowledge of Miles Morales and only read the Peter Parker Spider-Man book occasionally. So for me this a new and fresh take on the character of Spider-Man. I have never been one for changing a character just to please some of the masses. Marvel is doing this change right. While they try and keep up with the times and introduce more ethnic characters.  They have decided to  kept the original character but have Peter passed the torch.  Instead of making Peter Parker another ethnicity they keep the Spider-Man character alive by having the man behind the mask someone new.

If we at all want our characters to be real in any sense of the word. Yes I know it is a comic and not real. Our hero’s get old and the constant damage done to both mind and body will take it’s toll.  Peter will always be there but now the new stories can be written. Fresh ideas that fit this new Spider-Man.

Some characters can not change. Batman is Bruce Wayne. Clark Kent is Superman. If you wish Peter Parker is Spider-Man.  Marvel is not changing Peter Parker but a creating a new hero, Miles Morales Spider-Man. The same character core as Peter, a hero. Is that not what is important in our heroes. Not the color or race in the suit or mask but that a hero is still wearing the suit.

The Music Store: I Want You Back – The Jackson Five

Imagine Agents Optioned by Fox For Micheal Keaton

PicMonkey-CollageImagineThe Hollywood Reporter published a story today stating that Fox has just closed the rights to adapt Boom Studies comic, Imagine Agents for a feature film. The movie will star Micheal Keaton.

Imagine Agents is a book created by Brain Jones and artist Bachan. The Men in Black fashion story involves an agency, I.M.A.G.I.N.E.  that tackles children’s imaginary friends when they are no longer wanted. Some of these imaginary friends can not handle rejection by some children and go rouge.

I have read the books and I can see this book being adapted to fit Micheal Keaton.  Keaton is the type of actor that could really pull of the type of interaction with these imaginary creatures.

The movie will be produced by Keaton. Producing along with Keaton are Michael Sugar of Anonymous Content and Ross Richie of Boom! Boom!’s Stephen Christy will exec produce with Anonymous Content’s Eli Selden and Doug Wald.
