Paul Rudd is Marvel’s ANT-MAN!

By: Von Jared Omo

AntMan

Well, that escalated quickly! The last I heard about the “Ant-Man” casting was that Paul Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were going at it to see who would take the coveted spot. It seems that because JGL has now accepted to be a part of Warner Bros.’ SANDMAN, Paul Rudd will not be “Ant-Man”. It would be awesome to see how Rudd takes on the role. I’ve seen his work on “Our Idiot Brother” and it seems Rudd can showcase his emotional side when he’s not in his comedic mode. I’m not going to jump the gun and say he won’t do a good job. I think people have done that enough with Ledger and his portrayal of the Joker or even Hathaway’s take on Catwoman. You just don’t know how it’s going to be until you actually watch the movie! So, here’s to you Paul Rudd! Make us proud! Let PHASE 3 commence!

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Trailer is Released!

By: Von Jared Omo

“Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!” The new trailer for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APESĀ  was released today and it looked a little…bananas. Seriously. No pun intended. Alright. Maybe a little. It doesn’t show much, except for cities laying in ruins and Gary Oldman (Yes, Commissioner Gordon) seems to be the leader of the human resistance trying to take back humanity from the apes. Sounds like an awesome premise. I can’t tell if the last shot of Caesar in this trailer is really an ape or CGI. Yes, that’s how good the CGI looks (if it really IS CGI). Take a look for yourself and be amazed!

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is set to be released in July 2014.

THE BEAST IS BACK! Check out the NEW TEASER TRAILER for 2014’s GODZILLA!

By: Von Jared Omo

Yup! The King of BEASTS is back! And he looks damn righteous. This version of Godzilla is the one I remembered seeing growing up in black and white from when my older relatives would slap it on the VCR and the TV with the knobs to change channels. It’s got Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass, Kick-Ass 2), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Total Recall, Batman: Year One), and Ken Wantanabe (Inception, The Last Samurai) to name a few of the cast members. It’s just a teaser trailer, but at least we get to see a brief look at the monster itself, GODZILLA!

GODZILLA is set for a May 2014 release date.

Panda Discussion: Will the Sinister Six Be Revealed in Amazing Spider-Man 2?

By: Von Jared Omo

The trailer for Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released today, and let me tell ya…DAMN! So many Easter eggs were in that trailer that I don’t even know where to begin! BUT! Let’s start with the topic that’s on everyone’s mind…WHERE’S THE SINISTER 6?!

For those of you who don’t know (and I’m pretty sure you should if you’re a Spider-Man fan!) the Sinister 6 comprises of 6 (DUH!) of Spider-Man’s enemies. Basically, think of it like a really evil, powerful boy band hellbent on Spider-Man’s destruction. You got that image? OK, good. Now, we can start. Throughout the years, members of the Sinister 6 changed, but the 5 most prevalent members included over the years were the Goblin, Rhino, Doc Oct, Vulture, and Electro. The 6th member of the group were among the likes of Kraven, the Chameleon, Sandman, and even VENOM (Getting excited yet? You should be!). So, where’s the evidence to back up my opinion that we MAY see the formation of the Sinister 6 in the new Spider movie? Check out the screenshot below.

Do those two weapons/gadgets look familiar? Because it’s none other than Vulture’s wings and Doc Oct’s arms! There’s 2 of the 6 right there, and if you take into account the 3 main villains of the movie, which are Rhino, Goblin, and Electro, you’ve got 5 out of 6! So, who do you think will be the 6th Sinister? Kraven? Sandman? VENOM!? We’ll just have to wait and see! And another thing that teases the formation of the Sinister 6 is the opening of the 6 doors all at once (as seen in the screenshot below). WE NEED MORE!

Do you guys want to see Spidey smash the Sinister 6?! I do, too! This movie cannot come out soon enough! Let’s go!

GAL GADOT Casted As WONDER WOMAN in new SUPERMAN/BATMAN Movie!

By: Von Jared Omo

Gal Gadot

Well, that news came out of no where, huh? The last bit of news that I heard about the new Superman/Batman movie was about Kevin Smith losing his mind over the new Batsuit and how Affleck looked in it and that Affleck was going to put his own spin/portrayal of Batman that no one has ever seen before…or something along those lines. Call me a skeptic, but I won’t make any expectations for this movie until the trailer is released or some pictures pop up all over the internet that give me some sort of idea of what direction this movie is going. HOWEVER, I’m a little surprised that not only is WONDER WOMAN going to be in the new movie, but that they chose GAL GADOT. And here’s why…

Now, just because I’m surprised, that doesn’t mean that it’s negative. It just caught me off guard. I didn’t even know they were thinking about putting Wonder Woman in this film! But, I have an idea of where this might lead to…and I’ll get to that later. BUT FIRST! Let’s talk about Gal Gadot and her being cast as Wonder Woman. First, she’s gorgeous. There’s no denying that she has a beautiful face. However, her body appears to be a little too petite/slim to play the Wonder Woman role. If you haven’t seen her or don’t recognize her, she plays Han’s girlfriend in Fast and Furious 4, 5, and 6. She does have some experience with action movies and in one of her interviews I’ve seen, she does like to do as much of her own stunts as possibly. She sounds like an adrenaline junkie! This characteristic may actually help her in her portrayal of Wonder Woman! IF she puts on some more muscle for Wonder Woman, she might just actually pull this off!

Now, referring back to what I said that this might lead to. This movie could quite possibly lead to the formation of the TRINITY or even the JUSTICE LEAGUE! DC is definitely taking a different route with their movies and it’s going to be interesting in seeing what they have planned up their sleeves!

Second Trailer Released for ROBOCOP Reboot

By: Von Jared Omo

The new trailer for the Robocop reboot was released a day or 2 ago and based on what I saw, I’m still on the fence about this one. I have respect for the original 1987 Robocop and it’s outrageous, campy violence. This reboot appears to have a Hollywood feel to it, much like the Total Recall reboot, which isn’t saying much. However, I’m glad to see Michael Keaton back in action and doing these types of movies again since his Batman stint. How will this new Robocop stand against the original? We’ll just have to see! I’m not really digging the black suit, either, but…I guess we’ll have to see how it does in due time!

Robocop is set for a February 12, 2014 release.

Well, well…it looks like more updates are coming out from StarWars.com. According to them, Star Wars Episode VII is set to be released on December 18, 2015! Anyone excited? I’m still on the fence about this one. I’d have to wait to see more updates about the new Star Wars, but I have faith in J.J. Abrams and maybe he can breathe new life into the franchise!
