Black Panther Dom Trailer 2 1080p

Today Marvel released what I hope is the final trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie. The reason I hope it is the last is simply to much is to much. I love this trailer and it is the right amount to get me excited about this movie.

The music really gets you pumped. We see flying ships, amazing new costumes and T’Challa trying to figure how to become King and leader. T’Challa also has to deal with the return of a old enemy, played by Micheal B. Jordon.

This trailer alone gets me pumped for this movie and for more to come. I have a feeling that we maybe seeing the new leader of The Avengers.

Today released a new image of Jon Bernthal as The Punisher.  Also just a simple, Marvel’s The Punisher premieres globally █████ 2017, only on Netflix. So we know it will be this year but not letting us know what month. But with only 4 months left in the year we don’t have long to wait.

In the picture below you can see Frank happy and looking to spread joy to all those who piss him off.

Marvel’s The Defenders | Featurette [HD] | Netflix

I was lucky enough to get advance screeners of the first 4 episodes of Marvel’s The Defenders and boy was I pissed. Not because that the those first four were bad but they left me hanging. I had really gotten into the show and then bam done.  Depending on when you read this will have only a few days to see the episodes all at once. Marvel’s The Defenders drop this Friday and I will finish it this weekend.

Netflix posted a featurette to help get you into the mood. I don’t think it will take much if you have been waiting this long.

Marvel’s The Defenders which premieres globally on Netflix on August 18, 2017 at 12:01am PT follows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), a quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.

First Official Look At Cable

Ryan Reynolds is a marketing tool on his own.  Reynolds has since the first Deadpool movie Ryan has constantly tweeted, Instagram images and updates. I truly believe that Ryan was able to get people out to see Deadpool because of the use of social media. Once again he has done it with Deadpool 2. Earlier he used social media to introduce us to  Zazie Beetz as Domino.

 

 

 

 

Now this weekend  Reynolds posted 2 pictures of Josh Brolin in full Cable gear. Brolin’s Cable has the cybernetic arm, and eye along with an adorable teddy bear attached to his belt. This version of Cable is trimmed down but looks dam good.

Brolin is looking dam good.

 

They Need The Fantastic Four

The FF are unfortunately and very visibly missing form the MCU and with that horrible iterations that came out we can safely say the rights desperately need to be reverted back to Marvel.  Now that being said I believe it needs to happen sooner that later as it would help quell the injustice Marvel has subjected white people with.

Yes, you just read that right: injustice to the white people. With all these politically correct motivated changes to characters via their back story or even their ethnicity (looking at you Heimdal) I honestly believe the FF need to be released as they should be: all white and all American.

It just feels that they (white people) are not being represented and with Luke Cage and Black Panther making white America feeling some what uncomfortable kinda of way it’s time they get a Marvel movie just for them where they can be the hero again. Where they can be the center of attention with no sidekicks or some kind of ethic liaison to Shield or any crap like that.

Marvel please give them the heroes they deserve. The heroes they need so they can stop feeling left out. This way Lil Tommy and Lil Jane can look at the big screen and see themselves.
