Marvel Movies for Dummies: The Different Film Universes [BENEFICIAL TO MEDIOCRE FANS!]

Now I know where to point ‘her’ if ever she wants to know something and I’m just too tired to answer and explain. 😀 Thanks MarvelMovieManiac! 🙂

SUPER MOVIE MANIAC

Okay, if there’s one thing I hate the most, it’s people that think the MCU is in the same universe as the X-Men universe. What’s even worse is people that think The Amazing Spiderman films are in the same universe too. What’s even worse than that are people that don’t even know what ‘MCU’ means! Sorry, it’s a touchy subject for me. Well roll up, roll up Marvel fans of every severity, you do NOT wanna miss this enlightening information! Even if you think you’ve grasped the idea it’d still be beneficial for you to read just in case you’re not, I’m only helping! (By the way, MCU stands for, ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’).

Let’s keep this simple, there’s three big companies currently producing Marvel films:
– There’s Disney which create the MCU films which feature Iron-Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America and friends (including Guardians of the Galaxy).
– Fox have the rights to the X-Men series and…

CARDBOARDS-play or Something like that…

Yup, CARDBOARDS… after scouring the internet I came up on a familiar site. Yup! Dorkly. Yes, yes yes. I read Dorkly … sometimes.

Anyway, I read whats in the post and this amazing video:

…a video of Les Cartonnades, or The French Box Wars, at Japan Touch Haru, a geek convention held in Lyons, France. Qu’est ce que Les Cartonnades? A group of grown men forge armor and weapons out of cardboard and then battle to the death (’til their cardboard armor has been destroyed)…

Well thats something I want to see, and surely I clicked play. And what can I say? I may have found a use for the dozen of cardboard boxes lying around my apartment. LOL.

So watch and enjoy. 🙂

Marvel~ous World of Super Heroes!!~

Yep, I think I am more into reading Marvel comics than DC. Although, I tend to be a Batman fan since discovering him way back in the 90’s than a Superman fanatic. And I just recently discovered Constantine, now a series, and not the weird movie starring Keanu Reeves.

To make the long story short, I’m starting out on my comic reading hype again. Finished a couple sagas already, but just recently put down the hammer on “Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe” and I dare say it was epic. The concept of the story was weird and amazing, FYI: I’m not a hardcore comic book fanatic – for now. 😀

So possibly, nothing could be better than the Merc with a Mouth… unless we do a face-off with the wisecracking quotes of, *cue dramatic drumroll please!* dun~ dun~ dunnn~ Spider-Man! Last year I visited the Superior Spider-Man series and it was way cooler than I expected, knowing the possibility that Doc Ock was successful in changing minds with Spider-Man. Of course that was just the introduction, ‘coz my main point is the Spider-Verse! *cue dramatic drumroll please!* dun~ dun~ dunnn~

Spider-Verse

Every Spider-Man ever!

I really enjoyed Spider-Verse, it was a retrospective look at what possible things can happen around our friendly neighborhood wallcrawler. It was the team-up of the… multiverse? Yup. That would be a better term, “Team-up of the Multiverse”. There are an assortment of wallcrawlers; regular spidey, techno-spidey, assassin spidey, noir spidey, lady spidey, cloned spidey, spider monkey, spider pig (Peter Porker, heh), gwen stacy spidey, japanese spidey with an awesome huge-ass robot – if I may point out.

So, I finished it in time and I was epic. Now I have an idea of Morlun, and why he is such a b***. Also for the most part, I loved the part that it became a stepping stone for “Spider-Gwen”. Yey! Another series I’d love to follow.

Now, I’m digging up on the Infinity saga on the Avengers series – if only Spidey could go to space, Space-Spidey anyone?!?

Netflix’s Daredevil becomes the second-most pirated show behind Game of Thrones. Considering that the total pirated number of GoT includes all four-plus seasons, that’s pretty nuts. If you’ve seen the way Matt Murdock handles criminals, you’d think twice about pirating this show. Source: Variety

Looks like John Ridley (12 Years A Slave, Red Tails) has been awarded the job of developing Marvel’s next TV series. Ridley has been in TV for decades, starting in the 90’s with Martin & Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and going all the way to the current American Crime… so the guy knows a thing or two about television. This could be the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off or something completely different. Source: EW

Daredevils on the Stream

So much fanfare is going around the web (and television) for current and upcoming TV series of comic book heroes.

DC is not pulling any punches on Arrow and The Flash with its latest episodes that would be featuring some team-up. And Marvel is on a roll with its Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. showcase of the Inhumans. And also Netflix (with Marvel, still) releasing the first season of Daredevil – which by the way, is so bad-ass – paving the way for a more diverse Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not to mention, the previously ended Agent Carter which showed quite a few things that are the cause of the current and previous problems in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and some probable incoming plot point for a movie with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. introducing the Inhumans.

Some of it are – in my opinion and careful insinuation:

  • Johann Fennhoff, aka Dr. Faustus meets Dr. Arnim Zola – which is the cause of the mind washing implementation on the Winter Soldier with Dr. Arnim Zola
  • the Diviner being found by the Howling Commandos, which was the cause of the birth of the Inhuman – Quake

There could be more that I missed, and more that will probably expand on some incoming series. Until then, I’ll be content on watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Now back to Daredevil, the Man Without Fear.

I really dig the transformation from the black overalls (with the mask) to the more iconic red suit with horns on the helmet. Up to now, I’ve watched up to episode 2 so I’m really thrilled for the whole season. 🙂

Crisis on My Infinite Brain

Hi I’m the Geek, and I have a problem. I am miserable, but I didnt know that. I am afraid, but I didnt know that. I am bored, but I didnt know that. I am alone, but I didn’t know that.

Why do I have these weird psychological problems even though im the generic man? I dont know that either.

You see, I approach a problem and solve it by knowing the it. You cant solve an equation if you don’t understand any of it, right? More and more things become unclear if you dive into something you try to fix yet have no idea of what it is or was.

I’ve been practically apathetical, and more so emphathetical. Recently, I’ve questioned my ability to do work. My ability to do chores. My ability to help. My ability to care. I somewhat have a goto answer, like “i dont know” with an accompanying shrug. I became a bit intolerable emotionally. I realized I became a bit of a wuss, or some might say “on his period” – please excuse that sexist comment.

I’ve came across various ideas in my head, and up until awhile ago I’am still a bit of a loon. Yes, I still have problems. Yes, I may still be a bit of a wuss. And yes, I might not be instantly better tomorrow. But, I know that things will get better.

Come hither, a brain storm. (not a sexual euphemism, mind you)

I remembered a term I [always] encountered. Existencial crisis. Yes, I’ve got the problem! Actually, I got the gist of it. I am practically – emotionally – imbalanced. Now, to self-diagnose myself based on our ever trusted buddy – Wikipedia. heh.

An existential crisis may result from or be a misdiagnosis of or be comorbid with:

  • Major depressive disorder
  • Dissatisfaction with one’s life
  • Major psychological trauma
  • The sense of being alone and isolated in the world;
  • A new-found grasp or appreciation of one’s mortality;
  • Believing that one’s life has no purpose or external meaning;
  • Searching for the meaning of life;
  • Shattering of one’s sense of reality, or how the world is;
  • Awareness of one’s freedom and the consequences of accepting or rejecting that freedom;
  • An extremely pleasurable or hurtful experience that leaves one seeking meaning;

Now, come the solutions. Which I’d rather solve by one’s own volition. I maybe a frail man but I believe I can overcome my own psychological problems, it’s my brain afterall. 🙂
