Amiibo + Loot Crate

Loot Crate and Nintendo have teamed to send out the highly anticipated Amiibo NFC (near field communication) Figures.

Here's what I know...
  • There will be 10 pre-selected figures sent out through 3 different crates. 
  • The crates will be sent out throughout the Holiday season.
  • It's a separate Subscription. 
  • Mario, Yoshi, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, and Fox are the only figures announced so far
  • There will likely be bonus items in each crate.  

There's very little information regarding the partnership, but it's exciting nonetheless.
I'm curious to know the pricing + which other figures will be included in the subscription service.

More Details on Attack On Titan & Marvel Crossover Revealed

Remember when earlier this week I posted about an Attack on Titan / Marvel crossover?

Well, there are now more details!

Brutus (Japanese pop culture magazine) has revealed some new details regarding the upcoming Marvel Comics / Attack on Titan crossover manga (via CrunchyRoll).

The magazine’s November issue preview, Brutus 790 will feature a What If…? story that sees the Avengers battling the Female Titan from in New York City...but C.B. Cebulski tweeted that that the crossover will take place in Japan...

The issue will also feature thoughts on the crossover and the characters from Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isayama. Isayama will draw a Titan sticker and the cover for the issue, but they haven't said who will actually be drawing the story itself...

Ryan Reynolds... is he Deadpool?

So with the leaked test footage we got a taste of Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with the Mouth.
Sure, we got to see him on the big screen as Wade Wilson in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but DP fans don't really count that.
Sure, Reynolds was a good Wade Wilson, the character was just severely misused.

The Test footage gave everyone hope that a DP movie wasn't just a project stuck in development hell.

Fox recently announced a Deadpool movie, but there was no word on who will play everyone's favorite mercenary.

Was Reynolds still playing DP, or did the studio choose to go with someone else?

When asked about who will be playing him, Deadpool Creator Rob Liefeld said:

"Ryan is Deadpool. Look, Ryan Reynolds, he’s gone through that same career arc, the guy is ridiculously talented. He has a huge, huge passion for Deadpool. Deadpool’s not happening, because he was a giant star, they said, ‘Ryan, what do you want to do?’ And he said, ‘Deadpool.’ That’s why it happened. They would have no faith otherwise. That movie is because of his passion. He put together the team."

If Liefeld says it's happening, it's happening.

I'm excited.
I like Ryan Reynolds, I liked him as Deadpool in the Test Footage...
and I'm now excited that it's gonna happen.

February 12, 2016 people!

In the mean time, enjoy the test footage.

Marvel Comics Crossover with Attack on Titan

C.B. Cebulsky (talent scout for Marvel Comics) tweeted this amazing series of tweets...

I've never been so excited for a Manga in my life.
The 3D Maneuver Gear has always reminded me of Spider-Man, and I wouldn't doubt that he had something to do with the inspiration.
Being that it's a "What If" Scenario, I'm sure it's not canon, so all of my purists can breathe easy.

Thoughts on Black Panther

When this was announced I was ecstatic.
Actually, I still am.
I'm extremely excited by the fact that we'll finally get a Black Panther Movie.

It's something I've been waiting for since I was first introduced to the character.
He's such an interesting and unique character that I'm surprised he hasn't gotten a movie before...
heck, even an Animated series would've been awesome.

Either way, I'm excited, and I think the suit looks AWESOME.

Also, Chadwick Boseman will play an awesome King T'Challa.

November 3, 2017 can't come soon enough...


2017 HURRY UP.
