Venom Starts Production

I promised the Nowhere guys I would set aside my obsession with Tom Hardy and report this objectively so…here we go. On The 23rd, the official Twitter account for the upcoming Venom stand-alone film tweeted out this picture with the vague statement: “Day 1”

Now, I’m no detective but I think this means that the Venom movie with TOM HARDY IS FINALLY UNDERWAY!!!!! Breathe man…okay…so when I had asked my circle of comic and movie nerds; “Who would you cast as Venom in a new movie?” the general consensus was Tom Hardy. I can’t think of a more imposing figure to take the role of Eddie Brock aka Venom.

For those of you not in the know…Venom is actually a symbiotic organism that was discovered by Spider-Man while away fighting the Secret Wars. It bonded with him and gave him a badass new black costume that could become plain clothes by changing colors. After realizing that the symbiote was kinda violent and homicidal, Spidey casts it aside. This is all after he outs a fellow journalist, Eddie Brock, as a fraud and ruins him professionally. The symbiote “finds” Eddie and they formed a union more dangerous than Kim and Kanye! Venom was born and he became the single greatest threat to the web-head because he has crazy super strength, can spin webs, can “stealth” himself invisible, has a huge protruding jaw that he plans to use to eat Spider-Man’s brains, and the worst part, doesn’t trigger Spidey’s spider-sense!! This and he looks scary and badass. Perfect for Hardy!! Can I get an AMEN!!?

So I guess I’m pretty excited to see the most underrated, legit badass (he chased AND CAUGHT a scooter-riding purse snatcher on foot!) action star on the planet take on one of my favorite Marvel villains/anti-heroes ever written! I mean…if this is the potential…I must quote the legendary Kevin Smith in saying; “Take ALL my fucking money now!!”

Marvel is going to get Strange

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

Entertainment Weekly gives us our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange and he looks…wait for it…magical!! Cumberbatch is the newest face to join the Marvel family but is no STRANGEr (Okay I’ll stop!) to the big screen. Gaining huge fame overseas as the infallible Sherlock Holmes on BBC’s “Sherlock”, Cumberbatch gained popularity as Kahn in 2013’s “Star Trek: Into Darkness”. With razor sharp diction and a superbly confident demeanor, Cumberbatch was an easy choice to become the “Sorcerer Supereme.” Benedict Cumberbatch will be joined by Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes), Tilda Swinton (Constantine) as The Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Year a Slave) as Baron Mordo. You can catch Doctor Strange in theaters November 4, 2016 or you can pick up the upcoming copy of Entertainment Weekly for a more detailed read.
