Methinks Someone Is Into Comic Books

In Celebrities, Comic Books, Film on April 11, 2009 at 2:14 pm

And that someone is Megan Fox. She may be playing the fabulous Jennifer Walters in the new She-Hulk movie (awesome). She’s also set to play Aspen in the Fathom movie (more awesome). She’s currently filming in the Jonah Hex movie (squee). And then there’s her ongoing role in the Transformers movies…

This is one of many reasons why she is so insanely hot.


This Is Turning Out Suspiciously Like DC’s ‘Darkest Night’ Series…

But who the fuck cares- it’s Captain America! The Steve Rogers version! The best version! Though in all honestly, all the black would suggest something like an evil clone or dark magic, a lot of typical Marvel fan torture and then Steve Rogers appearing deus ex machina style in the last two issues or something, giving Iron Man a heart attack and causing a few volumes of angst for the newly resurrected Cap.

You know it will happen.

But seriously, Marvel, what the fuck, you cannot just give us a fucking star and a date– even DC’s done better than that! Everyone knows what that star means, so there’s no mystery, and everyone knows that July is 87 days away and no, I’m not counting, shut up, so all this is going to do is drive me up the wall¬† while waiting. But I won’t mind because any Steve Rogers is better than no Steve Rogers.

Also, a little more effort with the art wouldn’t have been a bad thing.

This Angers Me Profusely or Michael Bay Has Betrayed Me Again

Ignore the lovely Megan Fox’s boobs for a second and scroll to the bottom and look at the robot character lists. You see the Autobot half? You see how there is “Sideswipe” clearly written under “Bumblebee” and above “Arcee”? Yes? You see how “Skids & Mudflap (The Twins)” is written right at the bottom?

Yes? Do you understand why I’m angry? Not only that- Sideswipe has been down-graded to an American. Having previously been a Lamborghini Countach or Diablo, the red twin is now a silver Chevrolet Corvette. I will completely ignore the fact that it looks kinda cool on principal and instead suggest that it go die in a fire.

Also: LMAO @ Wheelie being a Decepticon.

Uggh, Give Me A Minute To Compose Myself

Geoff Johns, my personal Jesus, has a new blog. Flash: Rebirth #1 was released yesterday/today, bringing Barry Allen, my favourite Flash (tied with his grandson), back into mainstream continuity like Johns did for Hal Jordan, my favourite Green Lantern. At this point, I would take a bullet for this man.

I am actually torn- do I wait for the graphic novel? Or do I get my ass to Covent Garden every month from now till August to buy single issues? I’m chronically lazy, of course, and entirely too busy from now till August to get my ass anywhere that requires an hour long tube journey, so I’ll probably read it on the Internet and pre-order the graphic novel. Because I only ever buy graphic novels, but this– I could totally break that rule for this storyline. I’d buy the graphic novel regardless of owning the single issues anyway, but still… Argh. Indecision.

I’d Like To Start A Countdown

Because Iron-Man 2 starts filming on Monday 6th April 2009. The film will star Robert Downey Jr, of course, Gwyneth Paltrow, Samuel L. Jackson,  Don Cheadle as Rhodey, Mickey Rourke as Whiplash (or Blacklash, I think, if you prefer), Scarlet Johansson as the Black Widow (O.M.G.) and Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer.


This is the reason why I will always love Marvel more than DC.

Also, I’m compiling a list of all the rumoured superhero movies. I’ll see if it’s complete enough to post by Friday.
