I'm not crying, there's something in my eye!

Mystery Marvel Movie Gets New Release Date

Marvel has always been very clear about what movies were going to be released next.

They have always told us well in advance what shows could be found and where we could find them.

They communicate with fans better than most.

But no one knows about Phase 4m.

However if you look at the nine nine spots on the release date calendar, one of the untitled movies just got a new release date.

Phase 4 kicks off next year with Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5, 2019.

So much mystery for Phase Four, but please post your predictions below!

Pow regains control of Stan Lee's Twitter Account.

This is two days after the lawsuit against Pow (Purveyors of Wonder) was dropped.

"We also take very seriously our responsibility as guardians of the Stan Lee brand and legacy. One major hallmark of this legacy is the open, honest and direct relationship Stan has always had with his fans. To help Stan continue the tradition started with Stan’s Soapbox, POW’s social media team created and has for years solely managed therealstanlee Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts, as well as the Facebook page realstanlee, with Stan’s participation and approval."

"But, recently access and management of the Twitter account was temporarily out of our (and Stan’s) control. That situation has now been rectified. Stan Lee’s social media accounts are once again being exclusively managed by POW with Stan’s participation."

The battle against spoilers has been brought to a new level.

Scripts were instead given through an app and would disappear after they had a chance to memorize their lines.


Logan director suggests what went wrong with The Last Jedi.

Although Lucasfilm continues to attack fans for the continued fall of the Star Wars franchise, a highly respected director and producer had some wise advice.

James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Wolverine) recently tweeted, “Let movies be free, the same way comics’ve been. Superman didn’t look the same in 1952 as they did in 78 or 99. Encourage filmmakers to follow passion/story over universe building which is just a way to hook you for more dollars. Nolan never could have made Batman Begins if making a sequel.”

He then quickly followed that up with “Perhaps not in a film called Episode ___, however.”


District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp directing new Robocop movie.

They claim that Robocop Returns will not be a re-boot, but a sequel to the original Robocop movie.

But wasn't there already a sequel to that first Robocop movie?

So isn't this the definition of a reboot?


The Joaquin Phoenix Joker origin story is now officially confirmed by Warner Brothers.

However, it will be directed by The Hangover director Todd Phillips.

It is said to be completely different from past DCEU releases.

The good news is that it doesn't have Jared Leto.


The $1,200 Whisky Flight!

It’s available at The Bar at the Baccarat Hotel in New York City.

Have you ever had whisky that costs $400 per ounce?

The flight is comprised of Dalmore 40 Year Old, Dalmore 35 Year Old, and Dalmore 25 Year Old. Add up the expressions and you get a nice even 100 years of whisky.

The 40 year old, a 35 year old, and a 25 year old.

Only 750 bottlings of Dalmore 40 are released annually, and 1,000 of the 25 and 35, so this stuff is rare.

To read a very well done review of the flight, check the link in the show notes above.


The new Deadpool Blu-Ray comes with a Children's book.

Since this is Deadpool, do we need to say that this kids book is totally not for kids?

It's 24 pages long and is actually called Deadpool 2: A (Not Suitable for) Children’s Book.

Deadpool 2 Blu-Ray will be released on August 21, 2018.


Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ Movie Lands Director Cate Shortland.

Despite recent controversy, Scarlett Johansson will still star in the new Black Widow movie.

while this will be her biggest production so far, Marvel has a history of finding lesser known directors, and making them huge.

There is no release date because Marvel is tight lipped about anything after Avengers 4.
