Yep, once more, as it was last year, and the year before, tomorrow is October, so the Halloween marathon has rotated back around yet again.
So, here's the previous ones again if you want a refresher....
Was it the best episode of either series?
Did I expect that?
Do I think less of the intelligence of anyone who did?
As a crossover, however, it was perfect.
Everything you'd want.
Similar/parallel characters meet, funny interactions, everything you'd want them to say or do was done, both series brutally roasted, Homer and Peter fight, etc, etc.
Well, here we go, made it past 10.
Wanted to hold it there, as a nice balanced even number, but then this shows up...
Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story Of Cannon Films! (2014)
Title pretty much says it all.
When I get this, I already plan to link the review to every Cannon film I've reviewed.
Cuz, like "Rewind This!", and "Adjust Your Tracking", I feel this one will kind of put the period at the end of that sentence.
If that makes sense.
Its been cold enough to pack away the box fan for about a week, and I saw leaves start to change around the end of August.
Bye, bye, summer.
Got a LOT of shit done.
One for the books.
And hey, made it without a family member or pet dying.
There's a new twist! Let's see if it can be the start of a lucky streak.
Right now, the trees are green, with sprinklings of red, like last fall.
In fact, less red than last year.
Wonder if the cycle is going to keep being backed up a month, or if next fall will be more fall-y.
Well, enjoy the season while it lasts.
Winter will be up in our business in no time.
Edgar Wright dropped out of this.
A pall of doom hangs over it, and they're going to have to work a miracle to prove me wrong.
They probably will.
They're fucking Marvel.
Captain America 3 (May 6, 2016)
The directors have said the title (thus the implied plot) for this one is coming real soon.
Also, Cap didn't back down, and "Dawn Of Justice", blinked first, and moved its release date.
That doesn't sound like much if you're in the future, and it isn't, but it was quite the soap opera for a few weeks.
Dr. Strange (July 8, 2016)
Marvel reeeeeaaaally, really, REALLY wants Joaquin Phoenix for the role, but he's a'fraidy skeered of the commitment, or the challenges, or something.
Now, iffy as those are...they gotta fill those slots with something.
And if the slots are filled with secret other movies...between now and 2028, those have to happen in some form.
If not between now and 2019, then some fucking day.
Shit, Howard the goddamned Duck came back.
Another self contained one.
Produced by, starring, and possibly directed by Joseph Gordon Levitt, being written by David Goyer with input and assistance by Neil Gaiman.
Slated for Christmas of 2016.
Justice League (2017)
Sequel to "Dawn Of Justice", Cavill, Affleck, and Gadot will be back, natch.
Also on board will be Aquaman, Cyborg, Green Lantern, and Flash.
Jason Mamoa (Game Of Thrones, Conan remake) is supposed to be Aquaman, but he refuses to confirm it.
I just want live-action Harley Quinn.
The rest is gravy.
Harley was supposed to be the core villain of Batman 5, before the Burton/Schumaker franchise collapsed, and she's been skipped over ever since.
Shit, they rehashed Two-Face and Bane before they got to Harley.
In that respect, she's the Wonder Woman of villains.
This flick would fix that once and for all, and be 1000 times better than Batman 5 would have been.
Assuming they make every last one of these, that still leaves 4 slots to fill.
I'm assuming Justice League, Wonder Woman, Superman, and Batman sequels have to be in the mix.
And, that's those.
See you in 20-fucking-20 for how all this worked out.
S.H.I.E.L.D. is coming back. Duh.
Lucy Lawless, and Patton Oswalt are joining as full time cast members.
Crusher Creel, The Absorbing Man, is going to be a guest villain.
Mockingbird will be a guest hero, played by almost-Wonder Woman.
Agent Carter (2014)
A sequel to "Captain America: The First Avenger", and prequel to "Iron Man".
Starring Peggy Carter from "The First Avenger", "Marvel One Shot: Agent Carter", and "Winter Soldier", Howard Stark from "First Avenger", and featuring Edwin Jarvis the butler, who was the basis for Jarvis, Tony Stark's computer (who in turn will become The Vision in "Age Of Ultron").
Starring Charlie Cox, the dude from "Stardust".
No images of him in-suit yet.
Placeholder pic there for now.
Also, Vincent D'Onofrio will be The Kingpin.
"iZombie", based on a fairly new comic, a crime thriller about a female mortician who's a closet zombie, who when she eats a brain, gains the memories of the person, so she uses it to solve crimes. Also, eating brains makes her pass for human for awhile.
Nothing more than the pic.
Stars the sister of the dead girl in "The Lovely Bones".
Supergirl (2014, or 2015)
Another placeholder image (see Daredevil above)
No word on casting, or anything.
DC just pulled the idea out of their asses a week or so ago.
No casting or pics for "Preacher", but Seth Rogan and Evan Golberg ("This Is The End") are producing.
AMC has picked it up for series.
"Son of a preacher man", will be the theme.
No word at all on "Hourman".
That looks dead, but you never know....
So, that's way more than last time, when everything from DC was just talk.
