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.

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.
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.
Byran Singer is once again playing in the X-Men universe this time with The Gifted. The Gifted focuses on a suburban couple, Reed Stucker (Stephen Moyer) and Caitlin Stucker (Amy Acker), who are forced to go on the run when they find out their children Lauren and Andy (Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White) have mutant powers.
Additional casting details announced by Variety include Sean Teale as Eclipse, Jamie Chung as Blink, Blair Redford as Thunderbird, Emma Dumont as Polaris, and Coby Bell as Jace Turner.
The trailer shows that the whereabouts of the X-Men and The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants are unknown. Reed and his family face additional complications due to his job being part of law enforcement crackdown on mutants, which ups the ante on keeping the kids safe from themselves and others while trying to fond someone who can help them control their powers.
The trailer has that original feel of the first X-Men film where this explores the feeling of been hates and an outcast. If the show can keep this feeling and Fox doesn’t panic this show has some potential.

Okay I am a little late seeing this and passing it on so I am hoping you have not seen this awesome Deadpool Musical. The musical is a parody of the Beauty and the Beast “Gaston” song. Right? I think it is that what it says on the Youtube page.
Oh hell it doesn’t matter just have fun watching it. A lot of time and love went into this production and it really, really shows.

This book had a good vibe to it. Full disclosure. I have not read an X-book in almost 4 years, so this was very much a fresh start for this new team. A new team that is probably the closest thing to the “classic” line up of X-men #94 that I have seen in years. This book had a lot in it, and it needed to, to cover all the ground it required for a re-launch this big.
Marc Guggenheim has a good sense for what he wants this book to be. It’s a lot less darker than the X-world has been in the last few years. Much more of a sense of hope, instead of one of just survival. The X-men appear to know how to be well….”human” again. How to enjoy a day at the park…..even if they happen to live there now. There’s a cool few panels that anyone who has ever jumped first and thought of the consequences later would completely understand. You can stay…but you have to pay.
Adrian Syaf rivals Jim Lee in his depiction of the X-men, and it is good to see someone with that much attention to detail in facial expressions back at the helm again of an X-book. I had seen some of his earlier work on Captain Britain and MI13, but his attention to detail has grown even stronger since 2009.
They hit all the high points they needed to hit to get this book off to the right start. Lydia Nance had a unique take on why she thinks Mutants are still a threat to the world even though many others have been discovered who could fit that description. For Lydia, timing and a lack of control makes Genome X public enemy #1.The way Kitty Pryde has been written, she seems to get that time is the only thing that will heal SOME human fears about mutants. That there is no silver bullet to solve this and that doing good….is really the only thing they can do right now. Understanding why people are afraid is just an important as having them not be afraid.
I did have a small issue with the opening conflict. Terrax(minor spoiler) was dispatched rather quickly for being the level 9 bad ass that he is. He’s a former freaking herald of Galactus!!….anyway other then that I thought the book read well and am looking forward to the next issue. I won’t have to wait long as Marvel is going bi weekly with this title so every 2 weeks it’s on the newsstands.
Few other quick notes. There’s a pretty cool “Road to X-men Gold” which gives you a 6 page review of the X-men lore so far, hitting quite a few of the high points over the last 50 plus years. Also, there’s a nice letter at the back from Marc Guggenheim thanking us all for taking this ride with him, and giving us a chance to name this new X-men book(actually glad about that. Wasn’t looking forward to them calling it “X-men Gold”.).
