Stan Lee's Into The Spider Verse Cameo.

Stan Lee has very few of his infamous cameos left.

But his cameo in the just released Spider-man: Into the Spider Verse is a gut puncher.

Some may consider the following a spoiler, but as far as I know it is not.

Miles Morales enters a costume store to buy a Spider-Man suit.

He gets a cheap looking copy of Peter Parker's red and blue suit and wonders if it will fit.

The store clerk is Stan Lee who responds with "It always fits, eventually."

Original Hulk Lou Ferrigno hospitalized!

Don't worry, he's out now, and attending events with actor Dolph Lundgren.

Ferrigno just turned 67 last month and looks great for his age.

He ended up in the hospital after a pneumonia vaccine.

He posted on Twitter Wednesday, "Went in for a pneumonia shot and landed up here with fluid in my bicep."

Ferrigno was the star of the late 1970s TV series "The Incredible Hulk" along with Bill Bixby as Dr David Banner.

Avengers Endgame Website forwards to Deadpool?

So for some reason Marvel and Disney didn't think to reserve the websites and

So someone going by the Twitter handle @AGuyInChair bought them on the same day Avengers Infinity War hit theaters.

How he figured out the name so early seems unclear at this time.

What is clear is that all he wants from Marvel is two tickets to the premiere of Avengers Endgame.

When neither Disney nor Marvel responded to his offer, he decided to have some fun.

So he had the domains forward to the website for Once Upon a Deadpool.

Ryan Reynolds got involved and things only got more entertaining.

He sent @AGuyInChair a care package featuring the Ryan Reynolds owned Aviator brand gin.

To which @AGuyInChair immediately offered up for anyone who could get him two tickets to the premiere of Avengers Endgame.

Ryan Reynolds responded on Twitter with “This isn’t to say I’m proud of what you did. Just that I happen to love you.”

Still no response from Disney or Marvel though it seems.

Wednesday November 28th 2018: Episode 18

It's been just over two weeks since comic book legend Stan Lee passed away on Nov. 12th at 95 years old.

His cause of death has been announced as cardiac arrest with respiratory failure and congestive heart failure as underlying causes.

Aspiration pneumonia was listed as a significant condition contributing to death as well.

Aspiration pneumonia is a complication of pulmonary aspiration. Pulmonary aspiration is when you inhale food, stomach acid, or saliva into your lungs.

I personally experienced stomach acid in my lungs over a decade ago and I hate hearing that this icon of comics suffered with it on his way out.

We can all take solace in the fact that he is no longer in pain.

We will miss you forever Stan Lee. Excelsior indeed.

Stephen McDannell Hillenburg, the creator of Spongebob Squarepants has died.

He is said to have died of ALS, a progressive neurodegenerative disease.

Hillenburg was an American cartoonist, animator, and former marine-biology teacher.

Spongebob Squarepants was not only the longest-running American television series, but the highest-rated show ever to air on Nickelodeon.

Stephen Hillenburg was 57.

Many years ago Russell T. Davies had an idea for a Doctor Who spinoff called Rose Tyler: Earth Defence.

The concept has now evolved into an audio adventure brought to you by Big Finish.

Billie Piper returns to the role as Rose Tyler for the four audio dramas.

The plot will be more about human stories than the big monsters and aliens she faced before.

Rose Tyler: The Dimension Cannon is set to release in September 2019.

Pee-Wee Herman to be on 'Legends of Tomorrow' next Monday.

The episode is called "Hell No, Dolly" and will air December 3rd.

The episode is expected to feature the Legends as puppets, so this should be a perfect fit.

No word on if the actor Paul Reubens will actually be reprising his most iconic role, or playing a new unique character for the show.

Either way, you only have a few days to start binge watching, so you can catch up with the show in time.

Netflix announces an animated Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.

Not just that but every major story created by author Roald Dahl.

So this will also include Matilda, The BFG, The Twits, and even Charlie And The Great Glass Elevator!

Also part of the deal is to pull off an imaginative story universe that expands far beyond the pages of the books themselves.

It all begins sometime in 2019... somehow.

Resident Evil producer Samuel Hadida has died.

He died after what is only being called a 'short illness.'

Hadida was also the producer of Silent Hill and True Romance.

He was 64 at the time of his death.

Female Pirate Replaces Jack Sparrow

Female Pirate Replaces Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean?

About a month ago we talked about the rumor that Disney was thinking about replacing Johnny Depp.

This would obviously be a risky move since every movie in the franchise has made around $1 Billion dollars each.

So a pirate named Redd has become an important figure on both the Disneyland and Disney World rides.

She is said to have taken over the controversial wench auction scene on the rides.

No passing of the torch where Jack Sparrow sails off into the sunset.

No subtle introduction in the movies where we get to meet Redd.

How do you think fans will accept Redd as the new protagonist in the franchise?

Once Upon A Deadpool Trailer Released

So the first trailer for Once Upon A Deadpool has been released.

For those unaware, Once Upon A Deadpool is a PG-13 edit of Deadpool 2.

It will be somewhat of a reenactment of the scenes from The Princess Bride, with Fred Savage and his grandpa in that movie, except Fred is a grown man, and Deadpool is in the grandpa's chair reading the story.

Fred is also not happy to be there, is tied up, and is throwing shade back at Deadpool better than anyone we've seen so far.

Once Upon A Deadpool hits theaters on December 12th.

$1 of every ticket will benefit Fudge Cancer, a charity whose name is edited because this is a PG-13 movie.

Click the link to the trailer in the show notes, and let us know your thoughts.

The Infinity War On Christmas

Avengers Infinity War hits Netflix on Christmas Day.

This will be the end of an era of sorts, as after this Disney will save it's premium content for its own streaming service.

Disney+ will launch late 2019 where eventually it will be all things Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, etc.

No word on when Ant-man And The Wasp will be available on Netflix though.

Bill Maher Is A Petulant Child

Bill Maher acted like a petulant child when he said some disrespectful things about fans mourning the loss of Stan Lee recently.

Author Neil Gaiman has given the best response so far on his Twitter account with...

"Maher’s just trolling, and lots of people are rising to the troll. (Julie Burchill did it better 30 years ago with her “There aren’t any adult comics because adults don’t read comics” line. ) More people cared about Stan Lee’s death than care about Bill Maher alive."

The company that Stan Lee helped found POW! Entertainment has released a statement as well.

“Mr. Maher: Comic books, like all literature, are storytelling devices. When written well by great creators such as Stan Lee, they make us feel, make us think and teach us lessons that hopefully make us better human beings. One lesson Stan taught so many of us was tolerance and respect, and thanks to that message, we are grateful that we can say you have a right to your opinion that comics are childish and unsophisticated. Many said the same about Dickens, Steinbeck, Melville and even Shakespeare.”

This is why I have never been able to take Bill Maher that seriously, even on the occasion that I agree with him.

He's too often an immature troll.

Negan from The Walking Dead smacks down failed Lone Ranger star Armie Hammer.

When the flood of fans were mourning the death of Stan Lee, Armie Hammer felt the need to sling mud.

“So touched by all of the celebrities posting pictures of themselves with Stan Lee. No better way to commemorate an absolute legend than putting up a picture of yourself.”

He followed that up by saying “If Stan impacted your life (ie. All of our lives) with his work, post his work that touched you the most. Posting a selfie makes his death about you and how cool you felt taking a picture with him.”

The Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan brought out his barbed wire wrapped club to respond with...

“Looks like you found a way to use others ways of mourning and their memories to draw some attention to yourself. You sound like a real asshat.”

So wait... Negan is a superhero and The Lone Ranger is a villain?

Deadpool's Gina Carano joins The Mandalorian.

Most of us know Carano as Angel Dust from the first Deadpool movie.

As the second cast member to be announced for The Mandalorian, we can only guess that it's a prominent role.

She joins Pedro Pascal in the Jon Favreau produced series.

Cinematographer of Venom, Birds Of Prey, and and both Iron Man, and Iron Man 2 has been arrested in Poland.

The Camerimage Film Festival released the following in a statement:

“Mr. Libatique was involved in an alleged incident that led to his detention and being held on a potential charge of assaulting a police officer and a paramedic here in Bydgoszcz. This is now a legal matter that the festival is not in a position to discuss. We can make no further comments at this time.”

He could face 3 years in prison if he is found guilty.

The four confirmed movies with Stan Lee's Involvement:  

The two absolutely confirmed cameos are Captain Marvel and Avengers 4.

However, his voice will be heard in both Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and Ralph Breaks The Internet.

In further Stan lee news:

Stan Lee's daughter claims that she has created a new character called DIRT MAN with her father before he passed away.

Could Dirt Man be legit or is this more of his daughter trying to milk his legacy for all she can?

Will Dirt Man have that Stan Lee level of quality to it without the collaboration of Steve Ditko?

Only time will tell.

Every episode of Game Of Thrones season 8 will be over an hour long.

Game Of Thrones director David Nutter let fans know this in a recent Reddit AMA.

Some rumors are claiming that the episodes will run about 90 minutes long.

Nutter also insinuated that season 8 will have moments that outshine the infamous Red Wedding.

It is also now confirmed that season 8 will kick off in April of 2019 on HBO.

It seems now that if a major movie doesn't break a billion dollars, that it is a failure.

The budget for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was about $200 Million.

Although the movie won't open in the United States until Friday November 16th, many are speculating about it's potential.

If it earns between $65 million and $75 million domestically, that would put it pretty close to what the last Fantastic Beasts movie made.

This could mean that the movie would rake in around $800 million.

With fan reaction to this sequel being much better than the first Harry Potter prequel, it could end up making more.

Do you think this movie will be more magical than the last one at the box office?
