monster-scifi-show-cover-last-scifi-news-2016

The time has come to do my 2nd to last Monster Scifi Show for this year. Normally, my Scifi News episodes run about 20-30 minutes but I add more to the show. What will I be discussing? I’ve included 4 movie trailer reviews, 3 Scifi News items, and 5 midseason finale.

There are some purists that refuse to accept any alterations to the gospel according to their comic book creators.  I get it but what works in one medium may not translate to a different medium. A good example would be the first Fantastic Four movie where the origin story from the comic was changed to include Victor von Doom with the rest of the gang to be bombarded with cosmic rays which endowed them with superpowers though, Doom’s powers are not clear or as distinct as the Four.

Another alteration would the first Spiderman movie with Tobey Maguire. We still get the origin of Parker getting bitten by a radioactive spider but the alteration would be the webs Spiderman now can create organically. Does this change the dynamic of the character? I don’t think so. Sure in The Amazing Spiderman we are treated to another origin story but this time Parker creates the web shooter ala the comic book origin storyline. Again, did this change Parker or make him more like the comic book series? The movie sucked but Parker was the same as this did not enhance the character. His ability to create webs either organically or artificially was not as important as his ability to use the webs and swing through the city. Now, if you look at the video below of a Japanese version of Spiderman, I would have gone apeshit if this were to happen here.

So, Hank Pym didn’t create Ultron in the MCU; I can live with this alteration. I’m more concern about Ant Man sucking like Thor 2.

According to Joss Whedon, “Of all the heat I’ve ever taken, not having Hank Pym [in the Avengers] was one of the bigger things.” However, Whedon contests that it didn’t make sense to bring in Ant-Man into Earth’s mightiest movie heroes.

In an long interview with Empire Magazine, Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon explained why Marvel kept Scott Lang away from the rest of the Marvel gang, and why the comic creator of Ultron (Ant-Man) would no longer be the villain’s creator in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Tony Stark.

auquaman staring vincent chaseMany times, art imitates life but today we have life that is imitating art. Call it self-fulfilling prophecy of the sorts as the mock-up poster of Vincent Chase from the fictitious show Entourage staring in this underwater superhero role of a lifetime – AQUAMAN. Sure, this was back in 2006 but you know long those prophecies can take to be fully realized but seriously, this movie made like Spiderman money!!!

And when I mean Spiderman, I’m talking about Tobey Maguire’s Spiderman not Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spiderman. Check out the trailer to Aquaman.

As all kidding aside, we actually have an actor for Aquaman. Jason Momoa has been reported have landed this SPLASHY role. (Made a funny!!!) For me, I’ve only known him as Kohl Drago from the HBO series Game of Thrones. Prior to that or there about was the remake for Conan the Barbarian which I have not seen to date. A prior tv role had Jason on Stargate Atlantis which again I have not seen. Still, seeing Jason as Kohl on GoT was still impressive enough to see his screen appeal however, is he the Aquaman? Is Jason going to get his hair colored blonde? Will he be wearing the traditional orange and green colored costume? Will he have a hook for a hand or a hand made out of water? Still, I want to see an Aquaman wear no gloves. Seriously, wearing gloves underwater may look cool but has no practical application in life. I tried washing dishes with rubber gloves and once that water gets in there, no amount of superpowers will ever get rid of that icky feeling I felt. Putting that all aside, I am truly, truly happy that DC/Warner Bros. are getting their shit together. Plus, Aquaman is rumored to appear in the Batman v. Superman Dawn of Justice movie. From what I’ve read, it seems the tie in for Aquaman was the World Builder over the Indian Ocean as seen the Man of Steel. I see this as a downstairs neighbor who is pissed at you for not lowering the volume of your music but on a bigger scale. Someone not very happy!!!

We are coming to a new golden of superheroes on the big and small screen. I can not wait to see how this all plays out.

Seriously, why? Is this some stunt to make Spiderman: Turn off the Dark a big broadway hit? Well, not really because this show will stop performing on January 4, 2014. So, I wonder why show Spiderman making an appearance during the one of the highest touchstone moments in human history? Hmmm. Ah, it is to promote the next Spiderman movie.

I am so against this idea not because it not smart marketing but because this once beloved here is just a hollow hero. We have Peter Parker no more in the comics because Doc Ock switch consciousness. Doc is now running the show as the Superior Spiderman. Over on the Ultimate universe, Peter is dead and Mike Morales is taking over this role. And now, Andrew Garfield is the Amazing Spiderman which in fairness, I thought the casting was great to take over the role from Tobey until I saw the last movie. Fuck all this shit!!!!

Do you want me to tell you how I feel about the next Spiderman movie or would you like me to show you? Screw it, I am going to show you.

I am truly, truly pissed off with what has happened to one of my favorite heroes!!!


tired spidey

Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Look Out!
Here comes the Spiderma….zzzzzzzzz.
