Marvel Cinematic Fancast

Marvel Cinematic Fancast

Spider-Man is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe! And in the weeks since that announcement, a lot of buzz has been swirling about who may or may not be signing up for the role. Will Andrew Garfield reprise his role? Will it be someone new? We’ll have to wait and see! With that in mind, it’s fun to speculate on who may or may not interested in what roles, and who would be perfect for what. This list is the Zac and Chuck’s Untitled Podcast look ahead at who may be coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, why, and how they may tie in.

1. MODOK – Rainn Wilson is perfect for the role as the tortured scientist trapped in the body of the Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing.
He’d fit well in a future Captain America film, either with Steve Rogers or Bucky. After the death of Aldrich Killian, AIM falls into the hands of someone much worse, and their only goal is to kill Captain America. They enlist the aid of a scientist who would undergo a process turning them into a machine designed solely to kill. If all else fails, just throw him in a Netflix series as a throwaway villain or something.

MODOK is the Assistant to the Regional Manager of AIM.

2. Wonder Man – With Civil War coming up (and lacking a serious amount of characters), and Avengers 3 supposedly featuring an all new Avengers team, why not bring Wonder Man aboard? Women swoon for Matt Bomer, and with him in the role, a lot of women would be more interested in seeing the Avengers. (Hell, it’s the guy from Magic Mike. Just throw a scene or two of him in his underwear and it’s fine.

There’s just too much handsome in this picture.

3. Punisher – If Marvel’s current slew of Netflix Series coming over the next couple years are a huge success, we might get to see a phase 2. What better characters could be picked then the ones who can’t really carry their own film? Punisher and Ghost Rider have both failed to be successes at the box office, and rebooting again is just too big of a risk. So why not do a Netflix series for each one, and push the limits of the rating? Marvel will never do an R-Rated film, but why not a more adult oriented TV show? Karl Urban is the best choice for Frank Castle that I can think of, and his own cult following would bring viewers! Just throw in well known villains, like the Russian, Hammerhead, Jigsaw, and cameos by Daredevil, Spider-Man, and the Kingpin!

It’s all in the eyes.

 

4. Ghost Rider – Who would be better for the badass Spirit of Vengeance than Dean Winchester himself? Jensen Ackles has gained a cult following, due to his roles in both Supernatural and Batman: Under The Hood. He’s certainly got the chops for the part, and would definitely bring in more women viewers (ladies, you know you just watch Supernatural just to ogle this poor man!) You could even keep Dean’s car if you wanted to go with the newer Ghost Rider (I personally wouldn’t, I’d go with the bike!)

Ghost Rider is essentially Dean with a bike instead of a car. Word.

5. Venom/Agent Venom – Starring Aaron Paul as Agent Venom/Flash Thompson and Dominic Purcell as Venom/Eddie Brock. If this were a Netflix series I’d spend the first episode on Eddie Brock, the second on his becoming Venom, and the third on his time as the villain. The second arc would be a flashback to Flash Thompson in High School, his graduation, and his enrollment in the military. The second episode would see him waking up from a coma with no legs, and the military’s offer to make him whole again. The third episode in that arc would show him fighting crime and working for SHIELD (Coulson and others from Agents of SHIELD could cameo). The final four episodes in the ten part series would show Venom and Agent Venom meeting, and Venom revealing that the symbiote that’s linked to Flash is just a small portion of his, and he could take it back if he wanted. He obviously would, and Flash’s strong will calls the suit back to him.
That’s what I would do. Disney, you can email me at zacandchuck@gmail.com if you want to know where to send the check.

The Breaking Bad star would be an excellent choice to break faces!

o boy“Oh boy,” as the team backs away from… The Hulk? Ultron? Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver? The Vision? WHO IS IT?

 

What we didn’t see:

Black Panther – Perhaps T’Challa isn’t in the film after all, but his mortal enemy Klaw and body guard Dora Milaje both may be.
The Vision – Marvel has revealed EVERYTHING ELSE about the film, but no Vision. So maybe there’s still hope for surprises in this film!

 

What all this means: Not 1, but 3 members (maybe even 4 if Black Panther cameos) get introduced in this film, so don’t expect all three to be on the team by the films end (although they most likely will). Ultron mentions that he is going to “tear you apart from the inside.” To me, that could be a reference to Avengers: Disassembled, when Ultron-bots came pouring out of the Vision’s face– killing him. Ultron could be placing the Vision on the team for a later return… Or he could just be planting seeds of hatred throughout the team leading to their eventual disbanding (since Avengers 3 is supposed to have it’s own unique team).
Several Redditors pointed out that Hulk’s eyes may or may not be red– possibly due to Scarlet Witch.
Black Widow is seen possibly younger looking just before a possible lobotomy– Who is the mysterious woman holding her down? Someone from Hydra? SHIELD? Is it a flash back? Or is this happening in real time? Her hair is different, so who knows?
Quicksilver and the Vision get no love in this trailer, (although Pietro’s face is shown) so here’s hoping they make up for that in the film!
And as for that disrobing lady– I bet (since we also saw a Klaw lookalike) she’s Black Panther related, with Wakanda appearing in the film. Is she his body guard? Some also think she may be Death herself, possibly awaiting Thanos. Will this film have any plot points that tie into future films? Avengers 3?

There’s a lot of new stuff in this trailer, but nothing too revealing. We’re gonna have to wait for the film! May can’t come fast enough! Did I miss anything? Let me know in the comments!

Zac and Chuck Speculate On What Characters and Stories Should Appear In Agents of SHIELD

Zac and Chuck Speculate On What Characters and Stories Should Appear In Agents of SHIELD

1. The Punisher/Frank Castle – With the rights reverting back to Marvel, it’s about time we got to see a new Punisher, and since Frank Castle probably won’t ev er get his own film, I’d like to see him make an appearance in a story arc on Agents of SHIELD, and then spinning off into his own Netflix series in the future. Frank Castle is hard to bring into a very PG-13 Universe, since his main function is to maim/dismember/assassinate mob bosses and other villainous individuals. He makes perfect sense for Netflix, where Marvel can cut loose a little bit more with the violence, but it would definitely be fun to see him make an appearance alongside Coulson. Coulson and Castle are such polar opposites, I can only imagine what their first meeting would be like. With Microchip being mentioned in Season 2 already, it’s not that big of a stretch!

Why? To test the character for a possible future Netflix Series.

2. Daredevil/Matt Murdock – With the Daredevil Netflix series debuting in a couple of months, it would make sense that he make an appearance on the show, potentially during the same story arc as Frank Castle. Perhaps SHIELD is feeling a little outnumbered by HYDRA, and they decide to track down individuals like Frank Castle and Matt Murdock to recruit into the cause. Matt would certainly turn it down to protect his neighborhood from the Kingpin, but he could take on a couple missions with the team, which would be very fun to see.

Why? As a marketing move for the Daredevil Netflix Series.

3. Falcon/Sam Wilson – With Sam taking the mantle of Captain America in the comics, it’s obvious that Marvel has been trying to push him into the mainstream as an A-lister. It’d be fun to see Sam interact with the team, and having possibly “heard” of Coulson from Captain America and Black Widow, perhaps he could be the only one to know that he’s actually alive, which would be interesting for his character. He’d be tasked with keeping a secret from Captain America, which could have potential in the long run, if Coulson ever reveals himself to the Avengers (“You knew? How did you know? You don’t even know Coulson!”).

Why? To try and sell more issues of All New Captain America, and to bring a little more to Sam’s story regarding the Avengers.

4. Hawkeye/Clint Barton – With his wife (perhaps in the comics only) being a member of Coulson’s team, perhaps some back story with Hawkeye and Lance Hunter would make both their characters more interesting. A love triangle always adds some intrigue, although that may already be the case with Mac. We know Mac is keeping a secret for Bobbi, but what is it? And could it perhaps concern Hawkeye? That’d be interesting. Mockingbird’s love life could be an interesting bit of catharsis for the show, considering how heavy it may be where they are headed…

Why? To bring a little tension to the Lance Hunter/Bobbi Morse relationship (as if it needed more), and to tie the Avengers into the show a little bit more.

5. Moon Knight/Marc Spector – With the idea that maybe Daredevil and Punisher may make an appearance in a story arc to try and tie more properties in and push the Netflix side a bit, I thought it’d be fun to also bring a character that has never been onscreen before. Moon Knight would be a great choice, and the story arc in question could be about SHIELD tracking down vigilantes to recruit them and aim their misguided, vengeful energies in a more positive direction. Moon Knight would be an interesting choice, and if I had my way, Lance Hunter would have a really big secret; his real name is Marc Spector! (Half kidding on that one!)

Why? To bring a character to screen that has never been before, and to finally have Marvel’s Batman character in the MCU!

 

Top Ten Films Marvel Should Make In Our Life Time

Top Ten Films Marvel Should Make In Our Life Time

I should preface this article by being clear about what I mean by Marvel making these films: These are the films I would want Marvel to make, should rights issues not have any effect on what they do. Forget about Sony or Fox, these are the films I want made by any means necessary. Legal issues and rules need not apply. This is just a fan boy dream. If I could have my way with Phase 3 and beyond, this is what I’d do.

 

1. House of M – This film kicks off the list, since it’s my concept to fold the X-Men and other “lost” Marvel franchises (Fantastic Four, Spider-Man) into the MCU, by using Scarlet Witch’s reality altering powers (both potentially in Fox and in Marvel Studios) to reshape the world as one. Logan would wake up as an Agent of SHIELD in bed with Black Widow (rather than Mystique), and would freak out, not knowing what was going on. The movie would play out similarly to Days of Future Past and House of M, with minor differences (a bigger focus on Iron Man, Captain America, Reed Richards, and Spider-Man, less focus on all the others. The film would focus on the “top” characters of each Studios’ franchises, and bring them all together as a team to set the world right. When things go back to normal, however, both worlds are folded into one still, with Mutants being in the MCU and Spider-Man would be an established hero as well. This is my pitch for how to bring other franchises into the MCU without sacrificing continuity (Where was Spider-Man during the attack on New York/Why didn’t the attack on New York/SHIELD have any mention in the other franchises, etc.) Layla Miller would also be a major part of the story, spinning off into…

2. X-Factor – The Government fear Mutants. Always has, always will. We can’t control them, and in most cases, we can’t even fight them. The Government contracts its own team of Mutants to deal with Mutant threats. It’s seen as a way to cut down on “human” casualties in war on mutants. This film would be Marvel’s first solo foray into the world of the X-Men, and would deal heavily with characters they hadn’t done much with before. If Fox’s X-Men franchise were to work it’s way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Which may not and probably can not ever happen), this is what I’d like to see. Jamie Madrox, the Multiple Man (Since Havok existed in the 60s somehow), is contracted by the Government to gather a team of mutants to deal with threats that only mutants can handle.  Strong Guy, Polaris, Forge, Layla Miller, and Rictor all join, to help stop threats that are sensitive to the public. A fanatic cult leader, Haven, who displayed the apparent ability to heal all ailments and diseases, was calling on mutantkind to rise up against their human oppressors, and to overthrow governments. X-Factor went in to stop her, but the team was divided. Rictor and Polaris showed signs of taking her side, with Madrox and Forge clearly the opposition. Rictor was killed by Haven for being weak in the moment when asked to kill a human, and Polaris rejoined X-Factor and would go on to successfully take down Haven. This story would be a departure for typical X-Men fans, with characters never before seen on film (with the exception of Madrox in X2).

3. Planet Hulk – My pitch is to put Hulk in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Hulk would be “accidentally” launched into space as a solution to a villain problem (show him fighting the Abomination or something in the beginning and jettisoning him into space before crash landing on Sakaar and being forced into a gladiator like existence. Alongside him in captivity would be Drax, Star Lord, and Gamora, captured after the events of Guardians of the Galaxy. The ruler of this planet, the Red King, has an Infinity Gem, and uses it to rule the planet with an iron fist. The Hulk and the Guardians team up and win every battle thrown their way, and at one point are rescued from certain death by Groot, Rocket, and newcomers Mantis and Adam Warlock. The team confronts the Red King, and the planet is nearly destroyed by the Infinity Gem. The battle spans the galaxy, when the Red King finds out about Earth. He vows to travel to Earth and take it over. Hulk and the Guardians stop him, but not before landing on Earth and having the final battle in Times Square (Star Lord is distracted by his surroundings and is nearly killed, but is saved by the Hulk). The aftermath could show Star Lord on Earth, experiencing a “real Earth burger” for the first time in decades. In a post credits scene Star Lord and the Guardians could be confronted by the Avengers or something.

4. Avengers Vs. X-Men – With the Phoenix Saga being wiped away by Days of Future Past, and this list being my take on what should happen (and I know none of this will), I’ll pitch my idea for an X-Men film within the universe of the Avengers. Hugh Jackman and all.
The film would open with a reveal that the Phoenix Force is coming once again for Earth. This time, as it approaches, the Illuminati (Dr. Strange, Xavier, Black Panther, Tony Stark, Captain America, and others) know it’s coming, and vow to stop it. Only Cyclops and his team of X-Men disagree that it could possibly be a bad thing. Jean senses it and believes it could be the power that could stop Thanos (as learned from the Planet Hulk/GOTG film) from using the Infinity Stones to rule the Galaxy. The Avengers and Xavier confront him, convincing him that nothing this powerful could be any good, and the two teams battle it out. In the battle, Jean is mortally wounded (accidentally) and the Phoenix passes over her, and takes Xavier instead. Xavier uses the power to repair the world, by stopping poverty, world hunger, and ensures world peace. In doing so, he crosses many lines, and world governments fear him. The Avengers assemble to stop him by any means necessary, and Scott has to take him down. The world is devastated by the loss of this “force of peace” (who in actuality was growing more and more out of touch with humanity, and more and more out of control), and Scott is branded a traitor and an outlaw (kind of like Batman at the end of the Dark Knight). The film would show a lot more of the X-Men’s perspective, but less Wolverine than in the actual event.

5. Marvel Zombies (Netflix Original Series) – Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones infiltrate an AIM facility where inter-dimensional travel is being experimented with. Upon entering, a portal opens, and zombie versions of many heroes come out and fight the team (Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Punisher– introducing Frank Castle to the MCU). The team is rescued by Ghost Rider and Moon Knight, who shut down the portal, trapping our heroes in this world. The team is then taken to an underground hideout, where all survivors are hiding. The team bands together with this world’s defenders (Punisher and the others) and head back to the facility to find a way back. They come across Ant-Man, who has been captured by Zombie Doc Ock, who utilizes the Pym Particles to grow the portions of Scott Lang’s body he surgically removes. The team defeats Doc Ock, but can’t save Ant-Man. Ant-Man reveals that Doc Ock was working on inter-dimensional travel to leave this world to find more humans to feed on. The team uses the machine to get home, leaving Frank Castle and the others behind. The team leaves to seek out the men they worked with to join their team, only to find out that they aren’t typical heroes like they thought they were. This could spin into Ghost Rider, the Punisher, and other new Netflix series’.

6. Secret Invasion – A sniper takes out Tony Stark during a press conference, but upon investigation of the body, he wasn’t human. He was a chitauri. Somewhere along the line Tony was replaced, and the team suspects he has been dead all along, and everything that’s happened with Tony and the team was just a step in the direction of a larger scale invasion. Fury suspects Tony of having been replaced all the way back in the first invasion, during the events of The Avengers. The team starts to lose their trust for each other, with any one of them being an alien. Maybe they all are, Fury points out. Maybe they’re all brainwashed, and a trigger word would bring them back to their true selves. The team descends into chaos, fighting each other and suspecting everyone. they turn to Reed Richards and Charles Xavier to scan their minds and bodies to see who is who– to which Captain America escapes, transforming on his way out. The team has been infiltrated to the highest levels– and it will take more than just the Avengers to figure out who’s who and what’s what. A sci-fi/thriller/horror style film in the MCU in the same vein as Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Faculty.

7. Task Force X – A 70s spy thriller, with the newly reprogrammed Wolverine tasked with leading Sabretooth, Mystique, and Maverick against Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier, and bringing him back to Weapon X for reprogramming to infiltrate Hydra. No clear hero in the story.

8. Old Man Logan – Almost a direct adaptation of the original story, no major changes. Cast Mel Gibson or Clint Eastwood and you’re all set.

9. Marvel Vs. DC  – The most unlikely film in history, this would have to be a cooperative effort between Marvel Studios/Disney, and DC/Warner Bros. I’d set it in it’s own separate universe, with no effect on the films whatsoever.

10. Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four – Spider-Man attempts to join the Fantastic Four, is rebutted, but before he leaves the Baxter Building, Doom attacks, capturing the Fantastic Four and Spider-Man has to rescue the team, while the team work out their own escape from the inside.

Batman V. Superman Coming Sooner Than Expected?

Batman V. Superman Coming Sooner Than Expected?

qzqizkp-large-117468

This image got leaked earlier this week supposedly coming from an advanced screening of the trailer to be attached to Jupiter Ascending, hitting theaters next month. The trailer should show more footage of the upcoming films, and will possibly officially announce Batman V. Superman as a two part film, with part one hitting theaters later this year. This is very big news. With Dawn of Justice originally being planned for a March 2016 release, the film might actually be coming sooner than we thought? But why?

I believe Snyder and co. filmed so much footage they had the ability to split the film in two and keep it under the same budget as a single film (doubling profit at the box office). This is kind of smart! Let’s say the budget is $100 Million. With a single box office release, the film could make $500 Million or more, if the film meets the Dark Knight trilogy’s box office grossing. Now splitting that film into two, keeping the $100 Million budget (as far as we can tell as of now they did, unles Warner Bros. kept the budget increase deeply under wraps), they can do that twice and end up making twice the profit.

The only problem is, if the first half sucks, the second half would bomb. The good news is, if the first half is a complete success and the second half bombs, this ensures more films can be made, regardless. Either that or they’d accept the fact that they made as much as they did and reboot anyways, which could lead to even better films, or more terrible DC films since Warner Bros. doesn’t know how to make superhero films anyways.

Marvel spent years trying to get the rights back (and still are fighting that battle) when DC should just start selling the rights off to more capable studios, like Fox (haha!) or Sony (haha again!). Disagree? Think DC films are great? Tell us what you think! Do you think DC should be splitting Dawn of Justice into two films? Let us know in the comments!

Chuck’s Top Ten Biggest Nerdish Moments Of 2014

Chuck’s Top Ten Biggest Nerdish Moments Of 2014

2014 was filled with some of the best moments in nerd history, and some of those are just announcements of more moments in nerd history to come, but this list is my best crack at narrowing down everything that happened into a list of my favorite moments.

  1. Guardians of the Galaxy: One of my new favorite films in history, filled with some of the best nerd references (Adam Warlock, The Infinity Gems, Howard the Duck, etc.) and with the best humor in a comic book film I have ever seen, Guardians of the Galaxy was an enormous hit, and for good reason. With the catchiest soundtrack, a great cast, and references to Kevin Bacon and the best dance off in film history (“I’m distracting you you big Turd Blossom!”), I really don’t know where to begin praising this film. If you haven’t seen it, I just have to ask: Why were you in prison?

     

  2.  The Foo Fighters’ Ice Bucket Challenge: Not many people would disagree with the fact that the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was one of the biggest moments of 2014 (50 Cent calling out Floyd Mayweather on his reading skills, Chris Pratt doing shots, Benedict Cumberbatch getting iced over and over again) and it is truly difficult picking one challenge out of the bunch, but I think the Foo Fighters might have taken the cake, here, with their challenge being a remake of sorts of Stephen King’s Carrie.

     

  3.  The Death of Wolverine: With comic book characters’ deaths not being final, and in the case of any member of the X-Men, almost a sure thing to NOT last, it’s hard to include the Death of Wolverine on this list without some justification. First of all, Wolverine’s death is not an enormous shock, but the way it happened was a big deal. He lost his healing factor after a virus or something negated it, and you’d think someone like Sabretooth or Mystique would have the honor of impaling him or beheading him, but that’s not the case. Wolverine got a truly unique death, encased in molten Adamantium, the metal that covers Wolverine’s bones. Starting in January the comic Wolverines starts, which may or may not already be leading up to his return. Let’s hope they can manage to keep Logan dead for a while, unlike most popular characters (Captain America, Batman, Superman, etc.)
  4. The End of the Colbert Report: I don’t have much to say on this topic, as I will never watch clips from the last airing of the Colbert Report. I don’t know if I want to live in a world without Stephen Colbert on Comedy Central telling me my news. With Stephen Colbert moving to the big time and taking over for David Letterman on the Late Show (another world I don’t know if I want to live in, a world without David Letterman on the Late Show), we’re going to lose the unique political humor Stephen Colbert brought to the Colbert Report, in favor of his hosting the Late Show. Some of us might never move on.
  5. The Long Awaited Star Wars Trailer: After months of speculation on the upcoming Star Wars film, fans were treated to the trailer, filled with the good, the bad, and the ugly. We get to see a new villain, some new heroes, and the Millennium Falcon in all it’s glory. No words can describe my inner joy and terror at the trailer, so here’s another look!

  6. Zac’s Wedding: I’d like to make this number one, but I decided the list was in no particular order. Zac’s bachelor party (LAN Party) and wedding were a couple of the biggest events of my year (about time they tied the knot!) and I thought I’d share a few moments from it:

  7. The Hendo Hoverboard: The eighties teased many great things about the future, and one of the biggest ones was the Hoverboard. Hendo is on the case, finally bringing us what we’ve all been waiting for. It may be a long way off of being the technological advancement we all hoped for, but we’re on the right track!
  8. Marvel and DC Announce The Next 10+ Years In Comic Book Films: The phase 3 announcement from Marvel came with the news of a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy, along with news regarding Black Panther, Doctor Strange (and one of the biggest moments was the rumor turned to fact of Benedict Cumberbatch bringing the role to life), Captain America 3 will in fact be Civil War, and more, with DC having already announced a long list of films, including Wonder Woman, Shazam!, Aquaman, and others. The next decade is going to be nerd paradise!
    phase 3
  9. The Golden Age Of Nerd Television: Comic book properties do well on film, but the fun doesn’t stop there. We currently are living in a golden age of Comic Book related TV Shows, and here’s a short list: The Flash, Arrow, Constantine, Gotham, The Walking Dead, Agents of SHIELD, and many more cartoons and CGI shows (Star Wars Rebels, Hulk and the Agents of SMASH, etc) dominate the airwaves. If you’re a nerd and you have cable, welcome to the golden age. There are plenty more coming, as well! Krypton, Supergirl, Titans, Agent Carter, Daredevil (Netflix), AKA Jessica Jones (Netflix), Preacher, and more are on the way! What an exciting time to be alive!And that’s my list. Let me know what you think in the comments below! Have a great 2015 everybody!
  10. Comic Books Of Note: 2014 was the start of many great comic experiences and titles, such as Batman Eternal, Original Sin, and Edge of Spider-Verse (written by Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance fame), and although some of these titles aren’t the best titles of the year, some of the moments within are pretty great. The death of Uatu the Watcher in Original Sin, and the Anime references found in Edge of Spider-Verse (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ghost in the Shell) were pretty great. Uatu was one of the last hold overs of the classic Marvel universe, and by killing him off, it brought Marvel into a new modern age of stories that held a lot more gravity. Other events were pretty big (Batman Eternal putting Jim Gordon behind bars, Walking Dead jumping forward 2 years into a new golden age of civilization, and AXIS inverting heroes and villains, possibly changing the Marvel universe forever), and comics may never be the same.

    Have some better points for the list? Let us know in the comments!
