Captain Marvel Meets A Young And Full Head Of Hair Nick Fury

Brie-Larson-Captain-Marvel-BossLogic

First and FOREMOST this may include spoilers for Avengers Infinity War so if you dont want those come back to this article after you have seen the movie. But if you are cool with it…….HERE……WE……GO….

Now after the events of Infinity War more so the post credit scene, we saw Nick Fury use a long distance pager (yup a souped up beeper) to contact someone. We see after the transmission sends that someone is indeed  the symbol of Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel.

We have to wait into March to get the Captain Marvel film which is an origin story set in the 90s, where we are getting Academy Award winner Brie Larson taking on the role of Danvers an air force pilot who is bestowed extraordinary abilities when she encounters the Kree warrior known as Mar-Vell who will be played by Jude Law.

One of the most important things to note is that in this film we are getting a much younger Nick Fury, played by Samuel L Jackson. Yes not the bald, eye patch wearing,, goatee sporting, black turtleneck and trench coat take no nonsense but a much younger one and with a head full of hair. Also we find out that Jackson’s character connects with Danvers during the events of her first solo prior to him losing an eye. So that means we are getting a two-eyed Nick Fury and no eye patch throughout the movie.

The Nick Fury we’ve seen so far in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bald-headed man, rocking an eye patch and a goatee, clad in black trench coat and turtleneck. But the one we will see on March 8, 2019 will look totally different. Few months ago, Jackson revealed that the events of Carol Danvers’ first solo outing take place prior to the one where his character lost one of his eyes – so, he won’t be putting on an eye patch in the movie.

In the photos we see that Jackson has Mo-cap dots on his face which means they will be using CGI to make him Younger as they have done with Robert Downey Jr. and Kurt Russell.

In the set leaks, he’s spotted in front of a store along with Brie Larson, who is donning her superhero’s Kree armor. We dont know if this is the first time they encounter one another but can tell that something is going on. They appear to have an argument, with the aviator-turned-superhero trying a couple of times to do a bunk, but the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent getting in the way each time. One shot finds Captain Marvel shoving Nick Fury, apparently in an attempt to hide from someone. Check out the video and photos below (via Hollywood Pipeline.com)

The cast lineup of the upcoming Marvel Studios Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson is garnering more and more hype for the film. This announcement just keeps it going.  Humans star Gemma Chan is set to play Minn-Erva in superhero movie. Now in the comics-verse, Minn-Erva (aka Doctor Minerva) is a Kree geneticist and spy.

The plot and even basic details are being kept quiet for the first female-led MCU superhero film.  We do know that It will center on Carol Danvers (Larson), an Air Force pilot who has her DNA was fused with that of an alien during an accident, the resulting alteration imbued her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection and flight.  now this will be interesting as well because Minn-Erva has similar powers to that of what Danvers obtains.
Other announced cast members of Captain Marvel include Jude Law, Samuel L Jackson, Dewanda Wise and Ben Mendelsohn who is said to be the lead villain. Captain Marvel is set in the 90s prior to all of the other MCU films. It is set to be released in theaters on March 8, 2019

First look photos are a good thing. Especially when its a first look at a superhero is their costume or uniform. This one her is no different as we now have our first looks at Brie Larson as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel.

Now there are those who at first may not understand what’s the deal the green suit and not the red, blue and gold one. Well the green suit pays homage to Mar-Vell the Kree warrior whom Larson’s character receives her powers from and his origin. There is also much speculation as to is this on the set of Captain Marvel or even Avengers 4. Well we think it may be Captain Marvel due to the newspaper and older car in the shot. Captain Marvel is going to be set in the 1990’s.

Some LAW is possibly getting added to “Captain Marvel”

HBO's 'The Young Pope' Panel, TCA Winter Press Tour, Los Angeles, USA - 14 Jan 2017

Update: it is confirmed Jude Law will be playing the role of Mar-Vell

By “LAW” we’re of course talking about the ONE AND ONLY, Jude Law. Variety has dropped some incredible news regarding the actor and Marvel Studios next project.

According to Variety, Jude Law is in negotiations to play the male lead opposite Brie Larson in Marvel’s “Captain Marvel,”.

We already know that Ben Mendelsohn has signed on to play the villain and the film will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Geneva Robertson-Dworet is cleaning up the script, which was originally written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman. What exactly Jude Law’s role will be is currently unknown. All that is known, is the character will be a mentor of sorts to Danvers as she tries to figure out her new powers – is he possibly playing Mar-Vell? We’d love to hear your thoughts, so let us know!images (5)

Some Captain Marvel Plot Details Have Been Revealed

Brie-Larson-Captain-Marvel-BossLogic

We are getting some plot information on the highly anticipated Brie Larson led, Captain Marvel film.

Now According to the MCU Exchange, they reached out to a trusted source who gave them the information about the Black Order being Thanos’s children before it was officially announced. Now, they have been given word on a few things regarding the Captain Marvel film and the plot elements along with it.

Now as many have speculated but seems this is what’s happening, the film will have a large focus on the Skrulls and Kree races and, in connection with the latter, the film will introduce the character known as Mar-Vell, the first Captain Marvel who has quite the history with Carol Danvers and is one of the factors which imbued her with extraterrestrial abilities and is one of the few comic characters who has managed to stay dead ever since he passed away from cancer in The Death Of Captain Marvel.

It is also being said that the Psyche-Magnitron (the other factor that gave her abilities) will make some form of appearance in the film and that Carol’s alien genetics will be used to explain why she hasn’t aged from the 90’s to current day (called it)

Next, is that Carol Danvers will have operated as her former alias Ms. Marvel before her title change and that there will be multiple references to that time along with a look of her first costume. This is amazing news.

Let us know what you all think and does this hype up your expectations.

See, What People Don’t Realize Is: Marvel vs DC

Hey there, shes, hes, shims, hers, hirs, zes and so on – show co-host Bobby Hill here. Time for some real talk. As we grow the podcast and live shows, Jay and I want to also be able to put some original content out to you here, so that you can get our unfiltered opinions on these universes, even ONE MORE additional way. Sometimes you just want a salient opinion or two, right? With that in mind, I proudly present: See, What People Don’t Realize Is.

If you don’t listen to the podcast regularly, first of all, shame on you. Secondly, Jay has a tendency to couch “bombshell” tie-ins or reveals of easter eggs or even things that people would never think to realize at all, to the phrase, “See, what people don’t realize is…” It’s hilarious, it happens once every couple of shows, and now I catch myself doing it, too. In honor of that, every so often, we’ll deliver an original post about a piece of news, an opinion we have, etc about either the MCU or the DCEU, and they’ll all be titled similar to our first “See, What People Don’t Realize Is,” which, as you can see, is the mighty argument of Marvel vs DC.

With the failure of Suicide Squad in the form of what seems to matter most to the “die-hard,” Spider-man underoo owning, “I’ve been a member of Superherohype since it was Spidermanhype” crowd – that is – the critical reviews, DC again finds itself in an artistic/storyline problem when it comes to how it’s compared to Marvel. Man Of Steel was bleak, BVS even bleaker, as well as misshapen and a bunch of other adjectives meaning “not very good,” and the director of those two, Zach Snyder, was already on to helm Justice League. Cyborg looks like he’s not going to get used right, everyone except the execs at Warner seem to want Grant Gustin to be every Flash (understandable,) leaving the hopes of the franchise on Gal Gadot (unproven) and Jason Mamoa (terribly nice, but no box office cred,) with the hope that Ben Affleck will Robert Downey, Jr his way through each film. Let’s face it, Affleck hasn’t done nearly the amount of drugs necessary to have the charisma of Robert Downy, Jr.

As DC is producing all of that, Hollywood scene-darling Benedict Cumberbatch (Oscar nominated) and Brie Larson (Oscar winner,) are about to release and prepping to film, respectively, for Marvel. “How is Marvel so good at this and DC so bad?” is the question you should be asking. We have – for a couple of years now. As we’ll be talking about on episode 38 of our podcast, Time Warner CEO, Jeff Bewkes as even admitted the quality from DC is lacking. Marvel has made their series of films look seamless, as well as weaving in elements from their various television series’ while DC has kept their movie and TV divisions, well, divided. In fact the product put out by Greg Berlanti through the CW network (and Supergirl on CBS till they moved to the CW,) is really the only watchable DC fare in the live-action world. Now he’s taking on a Booster Gold movie which will rightfully not be connected to whatever mess is happening in the formerly Snyder run world, now helmed by Geoff Johns. A lot of people hope Johns will right the ship. He’s a DC stalwart who’s been involved with nearly everything there for almost 20 years. But can he?

See, what people don’t realize is, what Kevin Feige has done with Marvel is unprecedented. Because it’s 8 years and multiple successes in, it seems like what Marvel is doing isn’t even new any more, but it is! Before Tony Stark showed up at the end of the Incredible Hulk, the idea of live-action superhero continuity – or continuity of different movies through a series of loosely connected characters was unheard of. Sure, you might get a spin-off character, but by the time of the first Avengers movie, there had been 5 connected films, directed by 4 different people, with the 6th film bringing all of those characters together and directed by an entirely different person. And, while none of those films are “perfect” movies, they are all entertaining, fun, worth whatever the theater was charging prices, and you know it because when they pop up on TV now, you watch at least a half-hour of any one of them if you’ve got time.

Then they followed it up with 6 new films with 5 new directors and the same guy who directed the last uniting of all the characters, coming back to direct them all again; and once again, despite none of them being perfect, and one or two even being a little lackluster (Thor and Ultron, anyone?) the rest were outstanding. Guardians Of The Galaxy and Winter Soldier are so good, yet so far apart in style, that you almost don’t get how they’ll ever bring all of those characters together, but your trust it at this point, because 13 movies in, the track record is pretty solid.

I contend that the magic is in Kevin Feige. Making ONE successful movie is hard to do. Making a series of 13 and counting, interconnected films with different directors and main characters, etc, and having them almost all be at least decent, is a skill that maybe a few people could pull off? Managing the fact that actors age while comic book superheros normal do not, the economics of paying returning actors whose profiles have risen, largely due to what they’ve accomplished in their Marvel role, making schedules work, and still not dropping a string of shit-piles? There might be 4 people on the planet who might be able to make a thing like what he’s done, happen. I don’t know who the other 3 are, I just have my over/under set really low on this. Is Geoff Johns one of them? I don’t know. Does this let DC off the hook for fucking things up so far? Not at all. At the very least, good management knows that you don’t have the artillery yet, or at least realizes that one of your underbosses deserves more shine (I’m looking at you, Berlanti.)

They really should let Greg Berlanti in on more of the movie-verse. Yes, his CW shows are a little, uh, built for the CW is probably the best way I can describe it. But, if Booster Gold is a hit and he makes the Black Lightning show he’s prepping for Fox into another success, they need to start paying attention. Or, they could always take my advice from a previous episode, and do what Sony did – let Marvel make your movies!

That’s What’s Up!
