One would assume that since MARVEL now has the power to make their own films they’d be able to make flawless comic book movies. Not so. Many would simply forget about the Fantastic Four flub, Ghost Rider‘s gaffe, and Electra‘s err…not me. A good handful of spot on renditions have come to the screen to prove that it can be done correctly. It just sucks when someone only goes half way. I just didn’t think the people behind X-Men: First Class would be in that category. Read the rest of this entry »
“DAMN THEE, DIET!”
There is much excitement in the nerd community surrounding the new THOR movie that’s due out soon. As awesome as the trailer is, a “small” problem has been brought to my attention. Turns out the portly powerhouse Volstagg has been poorly cast. I know, I know. How hard could it be to cast a large and in-charge warrior from the halls of Asgard? Harder than you’d think, apparently. Read the rest of this entry »
I guess ole Cap will be taking a little side-quest to Silent Hill at some point. I’d totally watch that.
Is it possible that someone has actually made an X-Men movie the right way? This looks quite good. But I thought that same thing about the Wolverine film. Fingers, start your crossing.
Damn. I have to admit, this looks quite awesome. The thought of The Human Torch being cast as ole Cap had me quite mad. But after seeing this, I think I’ll be okay with it.
Dear MARVEL: Over the years you’ve created some rather awesome superheroes with quite rad powers. However, there’s a rather huge problem that needs a fixin’. This whole giving a face-lift to movies you’ve already made thing needs to stop. I’m sure Andrew Garfield will make a great Peter Parker, but it’s going to take a lot for you to usurp Tobey Maguire. Just sayin’.
Because I’m a nerd, something important in this trailer needs to be pointed out. Did anyone else see Odin magic Mjolnir away from Thor? Thor is the only one strong enough to even lift that hammer; it’s a known fact. What does this mean? Is this the first of many mistakes that await us in this picture? I sure hope not. Although, Volstagg didn’t look all that “Voluminous” to me. Read the rest of this entry »
That does it. It’s time for me to lawyer up and make these pricks stop snapping candid shots of me. Like, seriously. All they had to do was ask. I could’ve given them a much more bad-ass pose than this. Something tells me I won’t even get any cash for them using my likeness. But if this film makes people smile and praise the Gods, I’ll be fine with that.
Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk, Tony Stark/Iron Man, Nick Fury, and a dvd sighting of Captain America. The gathering of AVENGERS is drawing near, not to mention rapidly. Up next on the roster is none other than the Lord of Lightning; a.k.a. the Prince of Pain; a.k.a. the Master of Mjollnir; a.k.a. the Sultan of Sif. Give up? IT’S THOR, YOU DUMMIES!!! The picture should have given it away. Read the rest of this entry »
Knowing that there’s a shit ton of celebs jumping on board for the film adaptation of MARVEL‘s THOR, I’ve been severely worried about how the mighty Norse god was going to look. I half expected Hollywood to place Mjalnir in the hands of someone like Zac Efron. But if Anthony “Odin” Hopkins is totally down with the new Captain Kirk filling his son’s boots, I am too.
For a mere $4 Billion bucks, the corporate big-wigs at Disney managed to suck MARVEL Entertainment into their fastly growing amorphous form. This event could have catastrophic repercussions, or could be one of the greatest things to happen to the world since Donald Blake found Mjolnir and became Thor. Fox Business has laid out all the technical gobbledygook: Read the rest of this entry »
A movie about Thor just wouldn’t be complete without that son of a bitch Loki. That would be like taking a swig of Moxie and not getting that beautiful shot of flavor once the bottle leaves your lips, or driving by a beautiful woman without yelling something to creep her out. It’s just wouldn’t feel right. The boys over at Deadline Hollywood Daily have discovered that Tom “The Unknown” Hiddleston has been picked to create major havoc for the Aesir.

For those who may have seen cinematic psychopath J.J.Abrams’ new film Star Trek, you may recognize this gentleman as daddy to Captain Kirk. Well it seems his little romp through the cosmos shot a bolt of lightning up his ass, infecting him with the slow metamorphosis that is God-hood. You see, mister Chris Hemsworth will be playing the roll of Thor in the up and coming film, set to be released sometime in 2011. Read the rest of this entry »
Deadpool is one of those characters that I don’t know a whole hell of a lot about. I DO know enough to say that the Wolverine movie only showed the true Deadpool for like 5 minutes, if that, and what true fans got was what happens when Hollywood decides to run a train on comics. For some bizarre reason, Wolverine did well at the box office and now a Ryan Reynolds spin off is going to be made. From Yahoo: Read the rest of this entry »
A day that was full of nothing but rage, frustration, and borderline psychosis, ended with rage, frustration, and borderline psychosis. It seemed as if every God of every pantheon held a rap session to find out how long it would take for Defender to f’n SNAP. They came extremely close to getting their wish.

In order for Hollywood to complete the team for an Avengers movie, a film about the Norse God of thunder is a must. Over at coronacomingattractions.com a casting call for the lead roll in Thor has been released.
“Male MUST BE MID-LATE 20’S and SIX FEET OR TALLER. LEAD.
Physically powerful, very handsome, occasionally egotistical, petulant, and wild. A natural warrior with a quick charming wit who must be genuinely and severely humbled before becoming the compassionate, mature hero of our film.
The start date of filming is given as July and the wrap is September.”
Even though I have no way to get to Callifornia, nor do I have the slightest shred of acting tallent, would any of you disagree that this part wasn’t tailer made for me? RBM will be starting a Defender Must Get “Hammered“ fund. All donations will be used to send Defender to Hollywood, and get the rest of our robots blotto beyond Balder.
As amped as I am for the arival of May 1st, I’m not to keen on this poster. It looks like a lame re-hash of X-3 The Last Stand. This film had better deliver.
Getting out of work 6 hours early is a grand occasion. The mind is bombarded with thoughts of “Sweet!”, and “This RULES!”, and “What am I going to do for the rest of the night?”. For me, the obvious choice was to call a few buds, hit up CVS for some snackie foods, and have a viewing of HULK VS which was released only yesterday. Read the rest of this entry »
After a month+ long hiatus, RBM welcomes back Defender, our resident mutant-expert.
Am I the only one with super geek mucus pouring out of my noise hole? Thankfully I didn’t have to shell out ten of my well earned green paper rectangles to see this amazing trailer. Some douche thought it’d be a great idea to only show it with The Day The Earth Stood Still. Ass. Read the rest of this entry »
