Disney May Be Next In Line To Try And Acquire Warner Bros. And DC Comics In Merger

This kinda just breaks me.
So, Disney could own WB and DC comics.

…So Bugs Bunny and Micky Mouse under the same roof.

…Marvel and DC merge.

…I wonder if Tumblr would suddenly start claiming they love DC comics once this happens…

There are two types of comic writers.

Creators, who build up worlds and create lots of characters and relationships.

and

Destroyers, who take the established characters and either kill off most of the cast or destroy most things associated with the book.  Usually leave a book when they just run out of things to do.

It’s just really strange how I’ve been observing this trend.  You got Academy X New X-Men followed by Craig and Yost’s New X-Men, which killed almost the entire cast and blew up the coffee shop and then left the book open ended cause hey, at least they got X-23 popular.  Or Bendis who started his Avengers run by blowing up the mansion and killing most the Avengers, but he puts Spider-Man and Wolverine on the team, so it’s okay.  Or Dennis Hopeless with Avengers Arena (Granted he was told by editorial to do this).

Is it just me, or is the biggest way to get popular as a writer to just kill off what the guy before you has created?

STOP FALLING FOR FAKE MARVEL MOVIE ANNOUNCEMENTS TUMBLR! STOP IT!!!

New Marvel Movies Guesses

So we have already announced:
2014: Guardians of the Galaxy
2015: Avengers Age of Ultron and Ant-Man
2016: Captain America 3 and (what everyone expects) Dr. Strange

Now it’s gonna get tricky.

2017: Thor 3 is pretty obvious.  I’d say the second film is Black Panther.

2018: A new Hulk movie, followed by the Inhumans that have been teased forever.

2019: Avengers Infinity Gauntlet

I really hope Runaways gets in there though.

Comic Cons before Marvel NOW: Man, I can’t wait to see what they announce at this panel.

Comic Cons after Marvel NOW: No, i don’t want to look.  I know they’re gonna try to piss me off.

I find it funny that it omits the part about comics…

Comic Terms Defined for Newbies:

Civil War - A story where a bunch of heroes caused a villain to go boom in a Connecticut town.  It killed over 600 people.  The Government wanted all Superheroes to sign up to be Government employees who would be part of a militia.  Iron Man was all like okay, Captain America was like FUCK THAT, and thus superheroes either went with Cap or Tony over the matter.  Lots of hurt feelings were had.

Secret Invasion - Skrulls are like shape shifting aliens and be all like “Hey!  Let’s invade Earth!” So, it’s pretty much “Hail Hydra” except these aliens could be anyone.

Infinity Gauntlet - Thanos is like “Hey Death!” (Cause Death is like a boney chick in the Marvel Universe) “Why don’t you love me?” So Thanos gathered these gems that do crazy shit and starts causing mass destruction to impress Death (Including wiping half the life out of the universe).  Heroes tried to stop Thanos (They actually fail)

Annihilation - Big ass bug man from another dimension goes “I’MMA GONNA BLOW UP THE UNIVERSE WITH MY MASSIVE BUG ARMY!” Shit is awesome and nuts.

Inhumans - Guys who suck in this mist and get powers and live on the moon.  Their leader can’t talk or else shit goes boom, his wife has crazy hair, their dog is massive, and Crystal is hot.

Thunderbolts - Bad guys who decide to become good guys.  Venom, Bullseye and Green Goblin were on the team once.

Runaways - Kids who find out their parents are evil and runaway.  One of them is a 10 year old girl who wears a lot of funny hates.

One More Day - We don’t talk about One More Day

One Moment in Time - We don’t talk about One Moment in Time

Avengers 200 - We don’t talk about Avengers 200

Ultimate Universe - A separate Universe that reboots all the marvel heroes post 9/11.  It starts out pretty cool, milage will vary.  

Ultimatum - WE DO NOT TALK ABOUT ULTIMATUM!!!

Avengers Arena - NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE LA LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU!





It seems that the concept of Axis, reflecting (pun intended) the mirror image look on the covers, will see the Red Skull basically flip the traits of the heroes and villains…. so bad guys become good guys, and good guys become bad. They spin on their axis, hence the title.

I’m starting to think there is some credit to this rumor.  I mean, look at the Heroes in this cover.  They look demonic and sinister, while the villains have a more heroic stance.


Just…crazy that I didn’t notice this before.
EDIT: FUCK ME!  I just realized AXIS is spelt in a way so that you can read it upsidedown!

OH MOTHER FUCKER! EDGAR WRIGHT LEAVES ANT-MAN!!!

You know, why is it that so many Marvel fans keep going “LOL, you take this too seriously!  Role with the punches!” with character deaths and ignoring continuity, but they all universally get raged filled at “Dancing Spider-Man” in Spider-Man 3.


NO SERIOUSLY!  Why is it that Dancing Spider-Man is what makes them angry and the other shit is troll fuel?!

Marvel has beaten Harry Potter as the most successful film franchise.BUT
It took one more movie for Marvel to do that!So I guess Harry Potter still wins?

You know what’s bugging me about superhero films of late?

They are throwing away the personal lives of the characters.

I mean, think back in the first Spider-Man films, or even the first Iron Man.  We got a good look at these characters and the world they interact with.  Note, the world they interact WITH, not the world they effect.

Too many times, it seems like these films and shows only focus on the heroes lives that they forget to flesh the world out.  

For example, you got the cartoons that pretty much eliminate the civilian supporting cast.  Even Pepper Potts is gone.  Then you got Hulk with no Bruce Banner.

I mean, let’s talk Agents of SHIELD.  Do the characters on this show have no personal lives?  Does their entire existence mean that their lives off mission are just the six of them on that jet?  Who are their friends and family off duty?  What do they like to do off duty?  Even Fringe was able to fit personal drama in, and that show is the same episode length as AoS.

I feel like the Superhero films of late are getting far to narrow in focus, when they should be keeping things global.
