While making the rounds for his new film, Robert Downey Jr. said that ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is ‘in some ways’ Marvel’s best film.

To say this guy knows success when he sees it seems to be an understatement to enormous proportions.  Robert Downey Jr. walked out of jail determined to make something more of his life, and he is a walking, talking advertisement for change leads to success if I ever saw one.  He gave high praise to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ on a press tour for his most recent movie ‘The Judge.’  Now, that ‘Guardians’ has more than doubled the box office of ‘Transfomers’ (although, I think that was more about the unusually blood thirsty nature of the recent Transformer film that people recommended not seeing it than anything else) it should be guaranteed another three movies minimum.  Do you LOVE or HATE Robert Downey Jr. films?

There’s a new Katana is town: Arrow has tapped Rila Fukushima to play DC Comics heroine Katana, EW has confirmed. The Wolverine actress replaces Devon…

Originally, Devon Aoki was picked to play the character on ‘Arrow,’ but she had to step away from the role due to a conflict with another project she was working on at the time.  The gorgeous actress from the blockbuster movie ‘Wolverine’ will step in the role to play Tatsu, new heroine helping build our tragedy driven superhero.  Even though we’re sad to see Ms. Aoki had to drop out of the role, they were very lucky to get the talented Rila Fukushima to claim her sword.  What new character are you most looking forward to on ‘Arrow’?

Adrianne Palicki is one of the most badass females in Hollywood, so it’s only logical that she wo…

Adrianne Palicki seems a perfect choice to guest star as ‘Mockingbird,’ wouldn’t you agree?  She is said to star in episode five of the second season, and possibly more shows after that, it’s not yet written either way.  I would love to see her guest star in quite a few of the shows in the second season, she’s an amazing actress.  Of course, I am also really looking forward Lucy Lawless joining the show.  She is always brilliant no matter what character she plays.  Who is your favorite new character for season 2, and which Marvel character do you hope they bring to tv’s S.H.I.E.L.D?

Neither Marvel nor DC have any movie coming out in September or October until 2020. Why not? What about Blade & Ghost Rider?

Like December and it’s Christmas saturation, October is reigned by horror, and everything else is simply ignored.  Could a superhero movie that has no basis in the horror genre succeed in the month of October…well, by the looks of it no major movie production company is willing to take that gamble,  and risk the enormous cost of production and advertising.You really can’t blame them with hundreds of millions of dollars of potential profit on the line. Would YOU go see a DC or Marvel superhero/ine movie in October?

Before the halloween roll out our favorite seasonal cereals…

Rumor has it, artists from DC comics are going to “redesign” two of our all time favorite Halloween cereals, and I for one, say NOOOOO!!! There’s something amazing about seeing these boxes every Halloween. It sets the mood, let’s you know it’s the candy lover, horror movie watching season time of year.  What are they thinking?!? I suspect there will either be huge praise or mountains of criticism for the choice.  I guess I will hold my opinion til I see the package roll out… but, just know, I will be screaming from the rooftops if it doesn’t do these Halloween favorites the justice they deserve.  Do you think they should redesign the packages or keep the look we know and love?

A possible sneak peek at the next five years of Marvel Superhero movie dates has been disclosed on the net after San Diego’s Comic Con, but is it real? I think that’s what we’re all asking ourselves. Even if it really is the studio’s current plans for the next Marvel movies, it would have to be a tentative schedule at best, since we all know of movie dates that have been pushed back in the past, depending on the financial and social implications of the movies themselves. The third ‘Avengers movie Age of Ultron’ is coming out May 1, 2015. I am really looking forward to this movie, although I am unsure where they’ll take this one, even if Loki is still out there “reigning” down trouble throughout the realms. ‘Ant Man’ released July 17, 2015. ‘Captain America: The Fallen Son’ out May 6 2016. The much anticipated and widely debated role of ‘Doctor Strange’ will hit theaters on July 8, 2016. The return of ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ on May 5, 2017, is probably when we will find out what bad things those stones they keep collecting and hiding at the end of the Marvel movies can really do. July 28, 2017 will bring us the second ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: War of Kings.’ ‘Black Panther’ out November 3, 2017. The fourth ‘Avengers movie, Civil War’ will be hitting theaters on July 6, 2018. The next ‘Hulk’ movie, ‘World War’ is not out until November 2, 2018. A new movie series called ‘Inhumans’ will hit theaters May 3, 2019. Which one of these movies are you most looking forward to?
