Whoo-boy, has it been a big couple of days for Marvel movie announcements!
First, we get the news that Dr. Strange has been cast as none other than Benedict Cumberbatch…
It’s been a little while, but as summer winds down, and Wizard World approaches, nerd news will be
Kicking up again soon.
Today, in our quest to be nerdy and girly, we bring you another fandom-based nail art tutorial.
Let me start off by saying, as a fan of “Parks and Recreation,” it was delightful seeing Andy Dwyer in space.
Although there are certainly a good number of goofball moments, Chris Pratt’s performance was a great balance of criminal, hero, dork, and suave muthafucka. His Starlord really rather perfectly captures the qualities of the Everyman.
And then there’s this.
Nathan Fillion hinted months ago that he might have a cameo in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. It has been confirmed by director James Gunn that Fillion will have a cameo role in the movie. This does not come as a shock to many people since Fillion has had a role some of Gunn’s other works. I am extremely excited to hear about Fillion’s cameo in the movie because I rather like him as an actor. His small role in Percy Jackson as Hermes was an amazing, he stole that scene. I am very curious to see what his will do with this role.
People have been speculating that Fillion might be playing the character of Nova, Gunn has confirmed that will not be happening. While Fillion will be in the movie he will not be taking on such an important role. Some people speculate that is because of his lead role on Castle he does not have the time to do it. This could be very true if the filming times conflict, but let’s be fair many TV stars have filmed a movie during the summer hiatus. It could also be because Gunn does not want to put Fillion on all of his movies. A lot of directors are like that, come on George Lucas was horribly against having Harrison Ford in Star Wars and Indiana Jones because he did not want to get a rep for always using the same people. Maybe Gunn decided that he should do some movie without Fillion having such a large role.
Whatever the reason, we do now that Fillion will have a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy. As to what role/character he will be playing no one knows. Many people are thinking he might play a role similar to the one he had on Firefly.
Guardians of the Galaxy will be out on Aug 1st.
A new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy has been released:
I like this trailer even better because it gives us a bit more on the characters but also gives us more actions scenes. Even though I will admit I was a bit disappointed to not to see more comedic moments with Chris Pratt. At the same time it’s not a comedy but an action movie so it was nice to get an idea of the kind of action that we will be seeing. It was nice to see more from Rocket Raccoon and Groot, this way we can actually get an idea of their personalities. Also loving that the female is the assassin, I am a fan of a deadly female.
Here is a synopsis for the movie:
“From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team–the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand–with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.”
I know I will be seeing this in theaters when it come out August 1st, who else will be checking the movie out?
While Nathan Fillion is awesomeness, he can also be a bit of a tease. At St. Louis Comic Con, he teased about a possible Guardian of the Galaxy appearance.
Wanting to get the part… or maybe did? I’m just saying maybe. Maybe you’ll be surprised. Maybe. Check the credits.
Based on what Fillion said he either has such a brief cameo that you might miss it, hence why he is saying check the credits. On the other hand, Fillion could have a role in one of Marvel’s after credit scenes. I am going with and hoping it is the later, which means that we might be seeing Mr. Fillion on another Marvel movie.
Nathan Fillion and the Guardians of the Galaxy director have worked on other projects before. We all know that Fillion is friends with Joss Whedon so it would not he a shock to find him in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
I don’t know about the rest of you but this makes me even more excited to see the after credit scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy.
The start of the New Year always brings something to look forward to. One of those things is new movies. I complied a list of the anticipated movies coming out this year. Lets take a look at what will be gracing the movie screens this month and the upcoming months.
Legend of Hercules (Jan 10)
Pretty much looks like Gladiator meets 300, unfortunately that is enough to put me off the movie. I will not be rushing out to see this one.
Lego Movie (Feb 7)
Legos, do I really need to say anymore.
Mr. Peabody and Sherman (March 7)
I grew up watching reruns of Rocky and Bullwinkle as a kid, naturally this movie fascinates me. Not sure if I am going to see it in theaters or wait for to come on TV yet. If people are going to see it, I don’t see why I wouldn’t tag along.
300: Rise of an Empire (March 7)
I will probably be killed for what I am about to say but I did not like the first one. I found the movie to be over hyped, thus making it a let down when I saw it. While I am not going to see it, the trailer does look good. If you liked the first one, then you should go out to see this one.
Need for Speed (March 14)
While I was never a huge fan of the Need for Speed video games (that probably has something to do with the fact I suck at racing games), but the trailer looks interesting. If you liked the game or like racing movies, then you should probably check it out.
Veronica Mars (March 14)
While I never watched the show, it does have its fan following, which is why I added it to the list. I have to say the trailer does look rather interesting, it does feel like it can stand alone from the show.
Divergent (March 21)
I have never read the books, but they have been recommended to me since I love Hunger Games. The trailer and concept look interesting, I not sure if I am going to see it in theaters yet. If you are a fan of Hunger Games, this is supposed to similar so it might be worth checking out.
Muppets Most Wanted (March 21)
It’s the Muppets, does anything else really need to be said.
Captain America: Winter Solider (April 4)
Seriously who is not going to see this? Also is it just me or does Winter Soldier look like Sub-Zero?
The Amazing Spiderman 2 (May 2)
If you are a fan of the first one then you’re going to see this. I like the new approach so I will be checking this out. I do worry that they might be trying to do too much and we all saw how well that worked out for the 3rd one. Is it just me or does Harry look a bit emo?
Godzilla (May 16)
This one is an oldie, who has not seen at least one Godzilla movie? It has been awhile since someone has remade a Godzilla movie (not since 1998). With all the improvements to CGI and other special effects, I am curious to see how it looks. I am not anticipating a great story. I doubt I am going to rush to see it in theaters but I’ll have no problem checking it out when it comes on TV.
X-Men: Days of Future Past (May 23)
Ok, so First Class wasn’t the greatest of movies but it was nice to see things from the beginning (even though is barely followed lore but lets just not get started on that). I am an X-Men fan so I am going to see this. I’m curious how they will execute the story line, I am planning keeping an open mind.
Maleficent (May 30)
Sleeping Beauty is one of my favorite Disney movies, so that alone is enough to get me to see this. I like the approach of telling a well-known tale from the antagonist point of view. I am a huge fan of the Wicked book for this reason. I am looking forward to seeing this when it comes out.
How To Train Your Dragon 2 (June 13)
If you liked the first one obviously you are going to see this one.
Transformers: Age of Extinction (June 27)
Well the 3rd movie was pretty horrible, the 2nd was one was only alright. I am pretty much on the Michael Bay why won’t you just give this franchise up already bandwagon. Without a trailer it is hard to make an accurate call, but it really feels like Michael Bay is still trying to capitalize the success of the first one. Granted this one will have a whole new cast and possibly bring in the Dinobots (I am a fan of Beast Wars) but I don’t think that will be enough to save it. I am reserving judgement until I see a trailer.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (July 11)
I am not a Planet of the Apes person so I am not going to be seeing it. I just could never get into the whole talking Apes controlling the world. I do appreciate the fact they have been starting from the beginning and doing prequels. If you are a fan of this franchise then you should probably check out the new one.
Hercules (July 25)
After seeing the trailer for the first one and seeing many of the Rock’s other movies I am a bit hesitant. I just can’t help but feel like this is going to be another big money movie with no real story. I do want to see what the trailer looks like before I make that call.
Guardians of the Galaxy (Aug 1)
I will admit I am not as familiar with this series or story lines, so I have some research to do. It is a Marvel movie so I will be seeing in theaters for that reason alone.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Aug 8)
Not really looking forward to this based on everything I have heard about it. First the turtles are from an alien race, then they are from another dimension. Shredder is also from another dimension. OK, let’s be fair we all know the whole ooze thing is completely impractical but we didn’t care. The ooze is what made them, there was no need to change that. Megan Fox as April O’Neil, really? There will apparently no Casey Jones. Not really looking forward to this, but as a Turtles fan I will check it out – more than likely when it comes on TV.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (Aug 22)
Lets be fair the first one was good, but how long has it been since the first one came out almost 10 years. While I am more than likely going to see this in theaters, I am worried about it. I am really worried that it will become over hyped and just not live up to the expectation. Here is to hoping that it will still be as good as the first one.
Dracula Untold (Oct 17)
Not sure about this one yet, since I have not been able to find much about it. I am a fan of Dracula and vampires, I do like how they are not doing the Bram Strokers tale but instead a story about Vlad the Impaler. It would be nice to see something about the man who started the legend.
Big Hero 6 (Nov 7)
With Disney now in charge of Marvel they seem to putting out all as many Marvel movies as they can. Since it is a Marvel movie, I will naturally be seeing it. I do like the fact that this one will be animated, that will give the movie a different vibe. I would like to say I am excited for the movie but it is another series/story line that I am not familiar with, so I see a bit of Marvel research in my future.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (Nov 21)
Since I am a HUGE Hunger Games fan, I will be in the theater on thurs night seeing it. I just really hope they end it at a certain point in the story so that it will be cliffhanger to all those who have not read the books. I am also curious to see how much of other people’s point of views they show. I expect this to be great since Francis Lawrence did a great job with the second one.
The Hobbit: There and Back Again (Dec 17)
With any luck I will have finally seen the other 2 Hobbit movies which I have not seen and I will have read the books by this point. Hopefully by then I will have gotten into the movies and will want to see this one in theaters. Better late then never, besides let’s be fair anyone who is a fan of the fandom is going to see this movie since it is the last one.
Here is the movie list for 2014, let us know what movies you are most looking forward to and why?
