Defenders Hype!!!

THE DEFENDERS ARE COMING, THE DEFENDERS ARE COMING!!!!

Okay maybe a bit tacky but that perfectly represents my excitement for this show. The full trailer for Marvels latest Netflix series has just came out and it looks to promise many things that fans had problems with the past series. One thing that excites me the most is that this will only be 8 episodes instead of the typical 13 that we’ve seen from all the other series. The others have continuesly had the problem of creating problems for the characters so the series can get to that 13th episode. I’m sure many of you were upset with how arrogant and stupid Danny Rand was in Iron Fist and the whole “I can’t use my chi cause I just used it” bullshit was just dumb. Moving on to the other characters, we don’t see a lot of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in action but I love the fact that he’s going to be fighting in his business suit and scarf. Most other people probably want him to be in his Daredevil gear but I think it’s great the way he’ll be fighting in the show. Jessica Jones and Luke Cage have always been awesome for me so I might be biased when I say that I think these two are going to steal the show. Luke Cages’ powers were a bit under used in his show in my opinion so I’m hoping for some rampages where he pummeles through dozens of bad guys without any problem at all. Let me know how hyped you are for this movie and check out the trailer in the link below.

What To Expect in GOTG Vol. 3

Guardians-Galaxy-Vol-2-New-LogoGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is easily the most anticipated Marvel movie (if not any movie) that is coming out this year. Sadly, we still have to wait about 2 more weeks for James Gunn’s masterpiece to hit the theaters. I don’t want to talk about things we already know though. I want to take a look at what we might expect for the future of the Guardians franchise.

Now the things we know so far about this movie are almost non-existent except that James Gunn will be directing it. From this small bit of information though we can assume a few things:

  1. It is going to be jam packed with cool easter eggs that the fans will go crazy about.
  2. He will probably introduce a new character we have not seen in the MCU thus far.

Obviously in the first Guardians movie we were introduced to the whole team for the first time but Gunn wanted to throw in more for the fans so he included the Collector, Nova Prime, and we even got our first look at the mad titan, Thanos, chillin in his mystical chair and looking menacing as ever. Fast-forward a few years to the present day and James Gunn has included more awesome characters that we were not expecting. Ego the Living Planet will play an important role in GOTG Vol. 2 along with Sylvester Stallone who is playing Starhawk (who was one of the original Guardians back in the ’60s).

Fast-forward a few more years into the future, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be coming out and we will probably be getting leaks, spoilers, and teasers galore about what to expect in this movie. Lets talk about characters; One character that i am desperately hoping will be in this movie is Sam Alexander as Nova!! We already know that the Nova core exists within the MCU because we saw them in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie and ever since I’ve been hoping that Marvel would possibly name drop Sam Alexander in some way. As far as my knowledge goes, I don’t think Sam Alexanders version of Nova has been a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy but that’s not to say that Marvel can’t change things up a little in the movies. The MCU version of all the super heroes isn’t exactly what they are in the comics.

Star Wars Battlefront Looks Epic!!!

     As of late, I have been engulfed in the world of Star Wars. Everything from the tv shows, to the movies, and the thing I’m most excited about; the video games!!! If you haven’t heard already the new Star Wars Battlefront 2 trailer was just released and it has me even more excited about the Star Wars universe. Not only will this game feature a single player campaign that has been confirmed to be cannon to the lure of Star Wars, but we also will be getting a vast progression system in the multiplayer aspect of the game. This progression system they are talking about though honestly has me a little concerned. DICE, who are the game devs working on Battlefront, are also responsible for the hugely popular Battlefield franchise. The problem I have with this is that the last installment to the Battlefield games (Battlefield 1) lacks a good progression system. When I bought that game I played it for a month and half and by then I already had unlocked everything that was available. The core gameplay is amazing and very addictive but without any sorts of progression the game just died off for me. 

If DICE wants to make up for that then I’m hoping the progression system is as deep as they say it is for Battlefront 2. Also being put into the game is a classed based system that offers 4 classes to play as: Assualt, Officer, Heavy, and Specialist.

This system is very reminiscent to the one DICE has in there Battlefield games which I think is a great idea for the Battlefront franchise. It allows for players to have more choice for how they want to play the game. The first Battlefront game brought that addictive quality of gameplay like I talked about earlier but you could only play as one kind of class and everything felt generic and quite lack luster in my opinion. 

Hopefully everything DICE is doing for this game turns out amazing and they give the fans the Star Wars game they deserve.

Infinity War Predictions: Scarlet Witch and Vision

The next prediction that I have for 2018’s Avengers Infinity War is about the love story between Scarlet Witch and Vision. At the end of Captain America: Civil War Scarlet is going to be on the run from the government because she chose to be on Steve Rogers side instead of Tony Starks. This means that someone who signed the Sokovia Accords is going to look for her and try get her to sign the accords or just arrest her. But, since this is a Marvel movie, we know that things never happen the way we expect them to and that leads me into my prediction for today.

I predict that in Infinity War Vision will start searching for Scarlet on his own because he knows that he’s in love with her and doesn’t want her to get hurt. At the same time however, Thanos is out there searching for the Infinity stones and Vision just so happens to have one of those protruding out of the top of his head. I think that it would be good for the story if while Vision is searching for Scarlet Witch, Thanos – or one of his minions- comes out of know where and try’s to take the stone out of his head. This would be no easy task for anyone, I mean it is an Infinity Stone after all. But I do think that Thanos will be successful in retrieving the stone and then he will begin his destruction of the entire universe. This is just a prediction though so who knows what is really going to happen
