Thor: Ragnarok will feature Dr. Strange

Thor: Ragnarok will feature Dr. Strange

Dr. Strange – Benedict Cumberbatch

You hear it right, after rumors swirling that Mr. Cumberbatch will reprise his role as Marvel’s sorcerer supreme in Thor: Ragnarok, Disney has confirmed it.

In a statement from Disney’s D23 website, it reads “If you need even more intergalactic, world-saving action, Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new”.

Of course, there was a spoiler for this (if you cared to wait) in the end credit for Dr. Strange where Thor seems to request some favor from the Doctor.

Excited? We’ll have to wait ’til November to actually watch the movie.

StarWars: Rogue One Review

StarWars: Rogue One Review

Review of StarWars: Rogue One

Be warned! Some spoilers ahead, so if you don’t want to ruin your movie experience please refrain from reading further beyond this warning.

Also be warned that it is a terrific film specially if you’re a long time suffering Star Wars fan.

starwars rogue one review

The story is set in the events before Star Wars: A New Hope. Or Episode IV. This is a Lucas film without George Lucas, which kinda saves the franchise after George kinda ruined it for us in Episodes I-III and up to the animation Clone Wars film.

Meet Jyn Erso…

A prototypical, Star Wars gal. Strong willed, brave and with conviction in her which we already saw with Padme, Leia and Rey. She is the daughter of Galen Erso (Did they intentionally take that name from Galen Marek?)  who was a  scientist and leading galactic authority on crystallography and energy enrichment. The empire is after him so they can finish the construction of the Death Star.

The empire killed her mom and abducts his dad for reasons I just stated. Jyn was then raised by Saw Gerrera, a resistance warrior deemed too radical by his compatriots that he was banished so created his own faction in the rebellion. “The Extremists”.

Felicity Jones as Jyn, and the other stars of Rouge One

That was the start of the movie. Felicity Jones did a great acting job on this one. Worthy of her high pay in the movie. She partnered with Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, the suicide squad of the rebellion who retrieved the plans of the original Death Star.

As the movie moves along we meet K-2SO the movie’ Robot comic relief, but his delivery was much drier than C3PO. We also get to have Donnie Yen, who plays Chirrut Îmwe, a blind guard of the old Jedi Temple in Jedha (My favorite character of the movie with his mantra: I am one with the force, the force is with me), and his partner Baze Malbus. Together they were the main proponents getting the plans.

The film was great especially the scenes that had Vader in it.

Vader was so Bad-ass you’d forget he was so whiny as Anakin before. The scene in the dark hallways where he ignited his red lightsaber and him massacring the rebels, force-pushing and choking some, while the not so fortunate being decimated by his lightsaber…Bad-Ass!

The only let down for me was how fast or how forgiving Jyn Erso was in the movie. She forgave Cassian Andor well too easily after the guy attempted to kill her father. She also cooled down way too easily after the rebels didn’t believe her, had the movie extended another hour it may have captured the correct mood for those scenes.

Another one is the forced love tension between Erso and Andor, which as I said, another hour could have helped.

Maybe killing off Saw early in the movie is another one, I mean the movie could have used more of Forest Whitaker’s acting prowess in the movie (that’s some lazy writing?).

Other than that I think the movie was terrific and I could only hope this could build up more excitement for Episode VIII next year.

Kudos to the Actors, Directors and Writers of this movie, and thank you Disney for this. Old republic movie please?

 

Rating 3.75/5.00

“Aquaman” Plot

Last year, Warner Bros. has already earlier announced Aquaman’s plot, which centered on Aquaman being caught up between the troubles of Atlantis and the surface world. Aquaman is actually half- Atlantean and half-human in the comics, and he’s also the king of Atlantis. In his standalone movie, the marine superhero will be attending to issues on the surface world and also deal with a possible revolt in his own domain underwater.

The Aquaman movie is to be produced by Peter Safran and directed by James Wan (Furius 7, The Conjuring 2). It will be co-produced by Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, and Rob Cowan.

Aquaman in Justice League

Jason Momoa as Aquaman will appear again next year (2017) on a DC superhero movie “Justice League”, and he will be joined by Amber Heard as Mera, Aquaman’s lady-love interest. “Mera” will also be in Aquaman 2018.

Other DC superhero films set to be released in the near future are “Wonder Woman”, premiering next year 2017, “The Flash” (starring Ezra Miller), in theaters 2018, “Shazam” in 2019, and “Green Lantern” and “Cyborg” in 2020.
