Why yes I have jumped on the Jessica Jones bandwagon and as I was lucky enough to get a copy of this for christmas I just had to devour it in basically one go.

What I’m Reading: Hawkeye Vol 3 LA Woman

hawkeye vol 3I know, long title right? Anyway

I was a huge fan of Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye when it premiered. It was a title that actually got me buying single titles again. I loved what most people did, the snark, David Aja’s art, the fact that it was a truly stand alone title. It was really hard not to love. ┬áBut somewhere around the time Kate Bishop packed off for LA, I stopped reading. I blamed it mostly on my unemployment and thus inability to keep buying weeklies but after reading LA Woman, I’m not surprised I let my weekly buying habits wane.

Ryan Reynolds is officially playing Deadpool!

B4CTg3EIEAAq6nSUsing the above image on Twitter Ryan Reynolds announced that yes he would be returning to the role in 2016 and we’re all going to pretend that other movie was a horrible horrible fever dream. Now it does sadden me that Wade has epic unending skin cancer so his face looks like hamburger meat because Mr. Reynolds is a pretty pretty man but I’ll deal. He’s honestly the only actor that I can currently think of as being sarcastic enough to pull off the role. I’m going to really hope that Marvel’s movie luck holds at least through February 2016.

Why is There No Marvel Character Buy Back Kickstarter?

Remember this chart by The Geek Twins? For those of you that missed it, here’s the chart that breaks down which movie studio owns which beloved character. So as you can see the reason we aren’t getting any of Spidey’s witty Queens banter in the epic snark fest that is Joss Wedon’s Avengers is because Sony owns Spiderman while Marvel owns the Avengers. Apply the same for the majority of the marvel mutants that matter. With recent news that Benedict Cumberbatch is up for the role of Doctor Strange a companion of mine pointed out that Cumberbuttons would make a better Mr. Fantastic.

And you know after looking at the lanky bastard for a moment I have to agree. Cumberbuttons would make a mean Reid Richards. But that brings us back to the problem of Fox owning the Fantastic Four so they’re also in the Avenger Time Out Movie Sandbox.

 

Now I assume it would cost Marvel a lot of money to buy the rights back from all these companies. After all Avengers and X-Men both sold tickets like gangbusters. Marvel, while having a lot of money probably doesn’t have quite that much money. Sounds improbable I know but remember even Paul McCartney couldn’t afford the rights to his own music. Shit happens and corporations care about making money not movies jam packed with characters we love. So here’s my question, why haven’t we as the nerd community made a Kickstarter to buy back the rights for all those characters?

Do you want to see Marvel Civil War? Because this is how you get Civil War. Or Onslaught or Avengers Vs. X-Men…but fuck House of M, I’m still mad about that. I digress….

Kickstarter? Anyone? Hey it got me more Veronica Mar’s I figure it’s worth the attempt. I got a spare 20 on me.
