Trailer Alert – Spider-Man Homecoming

This is the last Spider-Man trailer before the movie hits theaters on July 7, 2017. Enjoy!

This trailer shines a light on the Stark Spider Suit (My name for it) while keeping The Vulture in the shadows. With this being the last trailer before release, I am super happy with how Marvel approached these trailers. They built excitement without revealing too much plot. Well done.

Spider-Man, Finally, Joins The Marvel Universe & The State of the Superhero Genre

Wikia-Visualization-Main

At long last Spider-Man will finally join the rest of the Marvel superheroes! Late last night Sony Pictures (owner of Spider-Man and Toby Maguire’s Soul) and Marvel Studios made a deal that will allow the web crawling fan favorite to join his fellow superheroes in the Marvel universe. Big news right? No…..HUGE NEWS. This will finally allows one of the most unique heroes to join up with The Avengers where he belongs.

Now on to some obvious questions about Spidey’s future. First and most prevalent being: Who will play the web-swinging mercenary? If I had to go with a knee jerk answer here I’d say keep Garfield as he has been a pleasant surprise as Peter Parker. If I am going to go out on a limb and try to guess who could play him i’d say maybe Ty Sheridan or another up-and-comer like that. Lets keep in mind that Spidey isn’t a large frame, so guys like Channing Tatum are out of luck for this casting call.

Next question: What does this do for the current Spider-Man franchise? Does it stop? The short answer, I would say, is no. It seems like the Sinister Six movie has been pushed back and not canceled so I am feeling like Andrew Garfield might still have a while left playing Peter Parker, which also supports him as my pick for the Marvel movie Spider-Man. You can’t have two different Spider-Men running around and shit. That isn’t right.

Lastly, i’m a big picture kind of guy, so after hearing of this news the first thing that came to mind was the other characters in the Sony Spider-Man universe to join him……..Carnage? VENOM?!

A man can dream, and dream I will.

New Stan Lee Cologne Sounds Like A Horrible Idea

Calvin Klein uses male models. Victoria’s Secret uses its Angels. Andrew Levine uses Stan Lee. If there is one person I wouldnt want to market my cologne after, it’s a 90 year old man. I’ve never heard someone say “I bumped into a 90 year old man today and boy did he smell fantastic!”. Don’t get me wrong, the man is an American hero. Hands down one of the most creative minds in history. But I do not want to smell like him. I imagine he smells like a mixture of aqua velva aftershave and death. Using Stan Lee as a cologne model is like hiring OJ Simpson to sell your new knife set: it just doesn’t work. Apparently the goal here is to release different fragrances based on the characters Mr. Lee has created. Smart move, except for the fact that the picture above is being used to spearhead the campaign. When I look at that picture I don’t think of cologne. I think of how horrible Stan Lee must smell. Thanks for ruining an American icon Andrew. What’re you going to do for an encore, spit on the American flag? Beat up my grandma? I hope Stan Lee’s death smell haunts you for the rest of your days.

P.S. Matt will singlehandedly keep this fragrance company in business. The king of impulsive buying.
