And The Oscar Goes To…

Hello, yes it has been a long time since I have posted on here, a very long time, Sorry? well since that is out of the way, I thought what else but the glitz and glamour of the Oscars to ease myself back into this by giving my predictions on who I want to win and because my opinion is kinda irrelevant I am going to say who might actually win.

Writing- Original Screenplay

Nominations- Inside Out- Straight Outta Compton- Bridge Of Spies- Spotlight-Ex Machina

Original Screenplay is filled with great movies, I think this is a tough one to predict as they are strong contenders, inside out was a great piece of work from pixar, this showed everyone that they can still produce high end family fun films but I don’t think the academy will give this to an animation. The others are all neck and neck with each other in quality wise as they are all well written.

I want the winner to be Ex Machina (as it has one of my favourite films of last year) , as this low budget sci-fi knocked it out of the park, with performances, the directing and importantly the writing, as I think the film would of fallen flat if not for a well written screenplay, this is always in my opinion the underdog but who doesn’t love an underdog

As me trying to think like the academy I am going to say they will pick the Bridge Of Spies, as this is something they would normally favour as it is a Steven Spielberg film and stars a wholesome star in Tom Hanks, this is like a safe bet for them. (hopefully they are wrong and pick Ex Machina, not bias here I promise, or turn everything on its head maybe they could pick Straight Outta Compton to seem more diverse)

Winner- Bridge Of Spies

Bridge of Spies

Writing- Adapted Screenplay

Nominations-The Big Short- Room (not THE room, that is a totally different film)- Brooklyn- Carol- The Martian

Here again is filled with great films, I am going to be honest I have not seen Brooklyn and Carol but I have heard good things about them but for the purpose of these predictions i am going to say it is a three horse race between The Big Short, which was a non-fiction book adapted to become a film about the housing crisis. Room which is about a young mother and her son living in what is basically a shed (I am not doing the film any justice with that explanation, I don’t want to spoil anything) this adapted form a book of the same name. Then The Martian again adapted from a book of the same name, is castaway meets Apollo 13 but without Tom Hanks.

Lucky for me both who I want and who I think will intertwine here because I think Room will win, as far as I know it stays close to the original material. the screenplay I think had to be good as for part of the film it is just the mother and son inside a shed, without out a great screenplay this part of the film would of bored the audience but it grips you with how they both cope with day to day life.

Winner – Room

room

Visual Effects

Nominations- Star Wars: The Force Awakens- Mad Max: Fury Road-Ex Machina-The Martian- The Revenant

First I am going to say that Ex Machina is not going to win this one, as the other films are far better visual effects wise. It is tough to call with this one as the films use their big budgets with great effect, first The Martian effects made you feel in was Mars and that everything Matt Damon character did was life and death. While The Revenant bear scene was just brutal (there are more Visual Effects it is just my favourite one). Then there is Mad Max the craziness that the savage wasteland look so brutal yet so good at the same time. Then Star Wars, anyone that knows me knows I love Star Wars, the Visual Effects I am glad to say was way better than 1 to 3.

Of course I want to see Star Wars win the Oscar!

Mind over heart, I have to give this one too Mad Max as everything just looked crazy and brilliantly awesome at the sometime.

Winner Mad Max: Fury Road

MadMax

Sound Mixing

Nominations-Bridge Of Spies- Mad Max: Fury Road- Star Wars: The Force Awakens- The Martian- The Revenant

As I don’t know much about this topic it would be really unfair for me to judge them, I think the sound in all the films are good (I am really grasping for something here).

Since this is not my area of expertise I am just going to say Star Wars for the win!

star

Sound Editing

Nominations-Star Wars: The Force Awakens- Mad Max: Fury Road- The Martian- The Revenant- Sicario

To shadow what I said for Sound Mixing just Star Wars! wooooo

star

Short Film (live action)

Nominations- Ave Marie- Day One- Everything Will Be Okay- Shok- Stutter

So this is tough for me not just because I haven’t seen or heard of any of these short films, it is also because I don’t have a clue where to watch them, so this is just going to be guessing work now guys I am going to go with stutter because the poster has a look of the social network about it and I liked that film so that’s my logic.

stutter

Short Film (Animation)

Nominations- Bear Story- Prologue- Sanjay’s Super Team- We Can’t Live Without Cosmos- World Of Tomorrow

Again not heard or seen any of these but everyone there is one called Sanjay’s Super Team which sounds right up my street!

So Sanjay’s Super Team is going to win! (Maybe)

Sanjay's super team

Production Design

Nominations- The Revenant- The Martian- The Danish Girl- Bridge Of Spies- Mad Max Fury Road

This is going to be hard fought as I think the films nominated did a great job with production design The Danish Girl did look and feel like it was in Copenhagen 1926. Then the revenant did the same but I think they did a better job at showing the harsh environment and what it takes to survive (poor horse). The Production on The Martian was great, it felt and what could be a realistic ways to survive on Mars if it ever happened, from NASA to the lonely terrain of Mars everything was believable. from believable to the land of the crazies Mad Max everything with the production was spot on to make this as good as it was going to be, with great chases and fight scenes, it was done beautifully.

I would like to see Mad Max win this one.

I think the Oscar would go to the revenant in this close battle for this Oscar, just for effort everybody behind and in front of the camera to make this happen.

Winner- The Revenant

Music (Original song)

Nominations- “Earned It” fifty shades of grey- “Manta Ray” from Racing Extinction- “Simple Song #3” from Youth- “Til It Happens To You” Hunting Grounds- “Writing’s On The Wall” from Spectre.

This one is tricky for me as I have only heard The weekends Earned it and Sam Smiths bond song, so like before to be fair I have to pick between them (As it is only fair) so since Bond has a better reputation then Fifty Shades, I am going to go with Sam Smith.

Winner- Writing’s On The Wall

sam-smith-writings-on-the-wall-cover

Music (original score)

Nominations- The Hateful Eight- Bridge Of Spies- Carol- Sicario- Star Wars: The Force Awakens

You can say this is bias but it was to be Star Wars? John Williams? when that score kicks in the hairs on the back of my neck didn’t know what the hell hit them, it was amazing. I do have to say the other films, have great scores I just it is hard to compete with Stars Wars here and I think and hope the voting body of the Oscars agree with me.

Winner- Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Hair And Makeup

Nominations- Mad Max: Fury Road- The Revenant- The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared

First I don’t have a clue what The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared (or hardcore fans call it THYOWCOOTWAD) is? I have not heard of it so it would unfair to judge it. On the other hand I think it would be hard to compete with these heavy hitters, Mad Max hair and makeup just looked like they just a good time because everyone looks great (well for wasteland standards). Then the Revenant again continues to be the favourite for many of the awards, I think it is on par with Mad Max but because of the more realistic tone I think it could take the gold.

I would like to see Mad Max take the gong.

I think the academy will go with The revenant.

Winner- The Revenant

revenant-leo

Foreign Language Film

Nominations- Embrace The Serpent (Columbia) – Mustang (France) – Son Of Soul (Hungary) – Theeb (Jordan) – A War (Denmark)

Just like the short films, I have no idea about these, so this will be logically guessing at best. I am going to go with the French Film Mustang

Winner- Mustang

Mustang

Film Editing

Nominations – The Big Short- The Revenant- Mad Max: Fury Road- Star Wars: The Force Awakens- Spotlight

I personally enjoy the editing style of The Big Short, that could just be my personal taste, yet the action sequences in Mad Max, was pulse rising. Then on the other hand The Revenant seems more hands on and that you are with and struggling with the character.

I would like this award go to Hank Corwin and The Big Short

Yet I think the award will be handed out Stephan Mirrione for The Revenant

Winner – The Revenant

revenant-leo

Documentary Short

Nominations- Body Team 12- Chau, Beyond The Lines- Claude Lanzmann: Spectres Of The Shoah- A Girl In A River: The Price Of Forgiveness- Last Day Of Freedom

Again I am struggling because I have not seen or again heard of any of these (that makes me sound terrible believe I am not that bad, at time) so again logically guessing hear.

Winner- Last Day Of Freedom

last day of freedom

Documentary Feature

Nominations-Amy- Cartel Land-The Look Of Silence- What Happened Miss Simone?-  Winter On Fire: Ukraine’s Fight For Freedom

There is only one of these Documentaries I have seen and to be honest the one I have seen would be hard to top, I am talking about Amy. The documentary shows how bad it was for and the people around her, it makes you feel for Amy Winehouse and what talent she had.

Winner- Amy

Directing

Nomantions- Adam McKay (The Big Short)- Lenny Abrahamson (Room)- George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road)- Tom McCarthy (Spotlight)- Alejandro G Inarritu

First off I just have to say what a journey Adam McKay, before The Big Short, the last film he directed was the Anchorman squeal, for his first venture out of the comedy genre (that I know of) he gets an Oscar nod, well played. I thought Room was a great film with a kinda unknown director at the helm with Lenny (he did direct a film called frank which I really enjoyed, worth a watch at least) he really showed off his talent and this is a gateway for him to go and do better things, I think if another director was in charge it might not have been as good. George Miller made the best action film of this year, or even one of the best in the last decade, the way did the case scenes and the action was fantastic, a worthy nod for him. Tom McCarthy has more acting credits than directing ones, similar the McKay the last film he came off directing was The Cobbler, which is an Adam Sandlar (do I have to say more?) so coming from that to a very serious film with the way he did is great. Inarritu is looking to make two in the row and he has to be favourite do so, The Revenant is not short a masterpiece, the way he filmed the Indians attacking at the beginning of the film to brutal and dramatic finish, he really nails the need to survive and the quest of vengeance. I am very surprised not to see Ridley Scott among the nominations for The Martian, I think that is one of the big snubs

Winner- Alejandro G Inarritu

alejandro-oscars

Costume Design

Nominations- The Danish Girl- Cinderella- Carol- Mad Max: Fury Road- The Revenant

Like I said earlier The Danish Girl did a fantastic job of really looking the part, while I cant say much about Cinderella as I have not seen it, same can be said about Carol but if I go off what the trailer has showed me it looks great. As many of these awards it seems to be Mad Max and The Revenant going head to head.

This time I think Mad Max will come out victorious and the academy while think the same.

Winner: Mad Max: Fury Road

MadMax

Cinematography

Nominations- Mad Max Fury Road- The Revenant- Carol-Sicario- The Hateful Eight

First thing I have to say is that all these films look great, so well done to the cinematographers on these films, I don’t know who you are but great jobs. It is hard to look past Mad Max and The Revenant for this to, yet with an outside bet could be The Hateful Eight.

Winner The Revenant (This might be two in a row for the cinematographer who worked with Inarritu last year for Birdman? don’t quote me that)

Animated Feature Film

Nominations-Anomalisa- Boy and The World- Inside Out- Shaun The Sheep Movie- When Marnie Was Here

I am going to be honest I think this is just going to be two horse race between, Anomalia (which I have heard amazing things about) and Inside Out, as you know this is pixar at their very best.

I want Anomalisa to be the winner.

For some reason I just think they are going to give it to Inside Out

Winner- Inside Out

insideout-teaser-2-580x328

Best Supporting Actress

Nominations- Jennifer Jason Liegh (The Hateful Eight) Rooney Mara (Carol) – Rachel McAdams (Spotlight)- Alica Vikander (The Danish Girl)- Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs)

This is a tough, every actress competing here are very talented, it is great to see Rachel McAdams break from a typecast of just a lead in a rom-com. Kate Winslet again gives a great performance in Steve Jobs but I think the stand out one for me has to Alica Vikander, what a year she has had playing Ava in Ex Machina and then a stand performance Gerda in the Danish Girl.

I would love to see Alica take home the gold.

I think the academy are going to disagree and send home Kate Winslet as the winner.

kate-winslet-best-roles-steve-jobs

Best Supporting Actor

Nominations- Christian Bale (The Big Short)- Mark Ruffalo (Spotlight)- Tom Hardy (The Revenant) Mark Rylance (Bridge Of Spies)- Slyvester Stallone (Creed)

Well, this is just so much talent, Christian Bale is fantastic as the one eyed, and shoes wearing, heavy  music listening numbers guy who goes against the banks and housing industry of america. Tom Hardy is cast in the prefect role to be the opposite of the main character, this sly mean man Tom Hardy nails it performance wise, this is great consultation for not getting it for mad max. Slyvester Stallone, showing he can act with the role he was born to play, it is great to see Rocky back on the silver screen and this time not fighting, he has perfect chemistry with his co-starts and director (it is a real shame Creed got over looked so much). One thing I have to say I am gutted to see Idris Elba get snubbed, he was great in Beast Of No Nations, I am not sure they looked down on it cuase it was released on netflix, I am sorry Mark Rylance, I think Idris should have your spot.(this is just opinion, I am not saying he is bad, just someone was better than him).

I think Slyvester should win this as I thought he was believable and honest an performance.

The academy I think will either go with Christian Bale.

bigshort

Best Leading Actress

Nominations- Jennifer Lawrence (Joy)- Brie Larson (Room)- Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn)- Charlotte Rampling (45 years)- Cate Blanchett (Carol)

I have not seen Charlotte Rampling in the 45 years, I am sure she is great but I not sure I can take her into account. Jennifer Lawrence is back in the gold case which seem to be an annual thing for her, I have heard she is great in Joy and could be one of the favourites. Lucky I am not reading this because I won’t have a clue how to pronounce Saoirse, I have great things of her in Brooklyn but I have not yet manage to watch her. Brie Larson really had the chance to show off her acting ability here, she nailed it, how she was with young star Jacob Tremblay was believable as the caring mother doing the best for her child and protecting him form what is happening

I really hope Brie walks away the winner.

Yet the academy might just go with the powerhouse that is Jennifer Lawrence.

Winner- Jennifer Lawrence

joy-movie-review

Best Supporting Actor

Nominations- Eddie Redmayne (Danish Girl)- Matt Damon (The Martian)- Bryan Cranston (Trumbo)- Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant)- Michael Fessbender (Steve Jobs)

What a heavyweight clash this is. first off one thing I have to say is the Eddie Redmayne had great connection on screen with Alica Vikander without them two performances The Danish Girl would of just been mah, so almost deserves it just by helping carrying the film. talking about carrying the film Matt Demon hit this out of the park, as the charming and lovable astronaut stuck on Mars, without his performance being as good as it was we not of cared as much as we did, hoping if he was going to makes it back or even survive. Michael Fessbender has been given a lot of praise over the true why he played Steve Jobs as an egoistical power hungry man that was not as nice as people think, it was nothing like the very watered down version that ashton kucher played a while back. Bryan Cranston as Dalton Trumbo seems like the perfect casting move, as the screen writer that got hounded for his political beliefs, seeing this talented man get treated the way he did because his beliefs, Cranston made the best of the script showing off his wide range of acting skills very comedic lines to the dramatic monologues. Next is the man almost every body wants to win and that is Leo, he has been overlooked many a times over the years, now he is making them take notice (with the best acting crawling I have ever seen) Leonardo showcases the need and struggle to survive the harsh environment just to get vengeance, the stuff he did just to make this as authentic as possible is crazy, now the academy must take notice. We don’t want another Peter O’Toole on your hands.

I think the overall winner is going DiCaprio (maybe about time for him)

revenant-leo

Best Picture

Nominations- Bridge Of Spies- Mad Max: Fury Road- The Revenant- Brooklyn-The Big Short- The Martian- Room- Spotlight

Last but not least, best picture, I would love to see most of these films take away the award as I am a fan of them all, if you take everything into account some overall are better than overs for example the design and sound of the revenant are better than Brooklyn, then you could argue they are totally different films, it could just keep going back and forth, how I am going to do it is take everything into account, to see what the best would be. Now this is just my opinion, what the hell do I know I am just a fan of film properly given out rubbish thoughts. I do think all the films nominated do deserve to be there and have a great chance of winning.

Winner- The Revenant

revenant-leo

That ends my prediction, as you can properly tell I am most likely going to be wrong a lot but hey that’s part of the fun, or I could turn around and have them all right which would be great!

If you want to see or hear more of my ideas (why wouldn’t you?) then follow me twitter @cjgreen7 to see if I was right when the time comes, thanks for reading, maybe I will catch you again sometime, Bye.

Moving On…

This is my first blog post for a long time! ( well in fact the first one this year) it has been a crazy end of the year!

The end of the year saw me finish and pass my long awaited apprenticeship (which I think I passed with flying colours) I have to say the modules was hard at times (even though I did lie my way through it for the best part) I am glad to say that my hard work did pay off, I did have great support form everyone at Cyfle ( that’s the company I did my apprenticeship with by the way)

With the end of the modules and the crying meant that my time at the company I was with had to end too! I had an amazing time at Orchard! Yes I was gutted I had to leave but hey that what happens, they gave me a great foothold that can help further myself in this career choice, the experience I have gained was just nothing I though would happen! (Please check my other post for more in depth detail… I am saying that just because I could do with more views…we have all been there… I think) I would like to thank everyone there at Orchard for a great time.

Now every has settled down, I am now testing the waters and trying to catch a media job that I worked hard to try and get, this is not as easy as I thought! (Well it wasn’t going to be easy anyway) I am asking around for work experience to help advance my chances (So hopefully this will)

We will see what the future holds! I may have to take a break for media just to make a little bit of money? I can accept that! Saying that I do have a ton load of ideas I want write down and try to make (maybe the idea list maybe a whole different post)

until next time then…

Mass Effect: Fan Fiction

Mass Effect: Universe

This is fiction and based in the universe of the popular game series Mass Effect. It follows a young alliance trooper named Jack Rhodes.

This is a little thing I wrote a couple of years back.

Entry One:

Hello my name is Jack Rhodes… I am kind of new to all this military diaries, but my commander suggest that we do these so that we don’t lose yourself and its their to remind you of who you are …but personally I just think he doesn’t want us to keep talking to him cause he is one annoying son of a bitch, he hates us all, I will quote him ‘you are all faceless drones in a game of chess I am playing” well I tell you right now I am shit at chess.

I have a list of questions I have to answer in these things… It says its for morale but again I think it’s here just to piss me off or just say why you joined the alliance and more bullshit like that.

So lets start things off… Well you know my name I was born on May 7th 2167 I was orphaned at an early age my father fought in the first contact war and died by a hand of a Turian, he was part of the N7 operation that invaded Turian invested Shanxi he was partnered with his friend Jack Harper on Shanxi and died in the temple Palaven, I know this because all I had left from my father was his dog tags accompanied with a letter telling me this information.

Then my mother was a fantastic scientist… people all around the galaxies would come to her to look at things form every corner of the galaxy, she was invited to go to mission with some marines to Akuse but she never came back, a man from the alliance came to me and told me that they got wiped out by a thresher maw… that is one horrible way to go.

The alliance took me in and looked after me and trained me up until I was old enough to join, I can remember I did not want to be here the military, it has taken both my mother and father I did not want it to take me.

I remember when I changed my view on everything, I was 16 not to long in fact, a disaster happen on Eden Prime the people there died form something… I wasn’t really sure of what it was but I saw the reports in which I had to break into the office of my commander to hack into the computer, come on what kind of password is ALLIANCE12345, I saw that a man named Shepard a crew man of the Normandy went there and witnessed and survived whatever was down there then two words that stood out at me form the report was Reaper and Protheans, to me they were legends and story’s my mother use to tell me about in bed, yes I know they are not normal stories for a child I loved them, that was when I decided that I was needed at help defend Earth…in case they were real.

Jack out

Tangled In A Web?!

Don’t worry Marvel I have your solution!

Okay! it is still rumours that Spider-Man might still join the MCU! yet I have a plan on how to include a Spider-Man (Sometimes I think to myself…I think about this stuff way to much!)

As you just read, I said a Spider-Man not Peter Parker! I have nothing against Peter or Andrew Garfield, I think he is a great choice for Spider-man (just not that in a good film)

To suit this MCU, If (still a big IF mind!) Marvel get the Spider-man rights back or just get a three deal film or something! they should have the Miles Morales version the the web slinger, as I said in my last post! (Go and read it! believe me it’s a good read!)

With Miles, they can introduce Spider-man without having the questions: Where was he in avengers and the Marvel events? here is where I explain how they can introduce him to the MCU!

First we start by introducing Miles’s parents through a flashback, his father a S.H.I.E.L.D scientist and then his mother (which she can also be working for S.H.I.E.L.D) in New York.

Miles gets picked up from school by his mother where they go to the father who is finishing up work, while they are going to the father the alien invasion of New York happens, which is the events of Avengers, this would explain why we wasn’t helping out the Avengers because he did not have his powers yet!

The attack is happening, everything is mayhem and chaos! Miles is with his mother trying to get to safety, they find some where to hide until someone comes to rescue them and the other group of people they found shelter with.

To be Spider-man a family member has to die! it is the law! this part of the story is were this would happen Miles mother, who could be a S.H.I.E.L.D agent or not? sacrifices her self to insure the safety of her son and the group of people. This can be done through her fighting off the Chatiri ( Aw that is so spelt wrong!) or stopping rubble falling on them.

Through this the group are safe on Miles is devastated! they are safe and the Avengers are victorious! once time is passed and New York is rebuilding and so is Miles. Miles is getting use to life in a new school and life with him and his father.

This is where I would introduce Miles uncle! he is shady and a criminal but he loves his family, he is there to help his brother rise Miles after the death of his wife.

After the alien invasion of New York, S.H.I.E.L.D are looking into new ways to defend Earth from alien threats, this is done by inventing new weapons, this would introduce Miles’s father working on the animal genetics,that would give Miles his spider powers! unknown to Miles’s father Hydra are behind these experiments, With this they could link it the the TV show agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, where they can have the head of Hydra (Hydra replacing Oscorp in this universe) talking to Miles’s father or having a Captain America big bad discussing progress.

Once this is introduced the story Miles’s father is spending to much time at his work, this leaves Miles spending a lot of time with his uncle (This time period is when school is out for the summer). This leads up to his uncle and father getting into an argument about Miles, with his uncle explaining he needs his father and so on. This argument gives the uncle information of a valuable item at the lab ( this could be the metal that is used to build Caps shield or even another plot device or Easter egg, I will let you decide that one!)

The uncle breaks into the lab (by using his brothers passes) to get this item but obviously something goes wrong! stuff break or he gets into a tussle that breaks stuff or something like that! while this is happening an escaped spider (see we are getting to the spider bit now!) makes his/her way into the uncles bag, unknown to the uncle he picks up the item and the bag and leaves.

With Miles’s father is at work getting blamed for the break in, Miles is spending more time with his uncle, when his uncle leaves the room to get a food for the both of them Miles noses around, at this point the spider comes out of the bag and feels threatened, this leads to the “radioactive” spider biting Miles on the hand!

This obviously this hurts Miles, the spider falls and runs off never to be seen again (maybe?) Miles start to have a fit because of the bite, his uncle comes back into the room.

Next thing we know is that Miles wakes up in the hospital to his uncle and father arguing, they tell him everything is fine and he is in good health.

Time passes Miles’s father got fired after being blamed for the robbery and Miles starts to notice something is off and he is feeling weird, in school his powers start to reveal their self ( just like the Sam Remi’s film).

News breaks that Hydra has taken over S.H,I.E.L.D, this leads to the events of Captain America 2. This leads to Hydra coming after Miles’s father as he knows secrets and has no loyalty to Hydra. This makes Miles use his powers to defend his father and uncle (without them knowing of course).

Next up is what happens in Age of Ultron! as I don’t know what happens i am just going to say that after the event Miles declares that he will not let what happened to him ( him losing his mother in a super hero event) happen to anyone else and decides to use his power for the greater good and start to protect New York as a masked vigilante named Spider-man! (He hides his identity to protect his family and to get Hydra away from him)

This is what I think should happen IF Marvel get Spidey back!

Hey Marvel you going to give a job yet!!??

Let me know what you think and thanks for reading and please share to friends or some random guy on the street!

Caught in the cast…

Recently I made a Tweet (By the way I am worth the follow) about True Detective and who I thought should be cast in season three. I had great feedback on my suggestions.

Wordpress- karl urban Wordpress- Sam Rockwell

Karl Urban and Sam Rockwell! I thought these two mixed with the grit of the True Detective world would be a really good match. There could be many options to play with these actors, Urban could be a family man with a dark side? or Rockwell could play anything because he can actually play anything! (Because he is just a great actor).

This got me thinking about other casting choices I would pick for films. One that got me really excited is the rumour going around that Marvel wants to bring in Spider-man into the MCU. Even though I like Andrew Garfield as Spider-man it just wouldn’t make sense that his Spider-man fits into the Marvel universe? so a theory circling the internet recently is that IF! (that is a big if) Spider-man joins the Avengers line up it would be the Miles Morales incarnation of the web slinger.

Spider-Man-to-Pass-Torch-to-Miles-Morales

As you can see this version of spider man is different, this rumour got me thinking who would be good to play Miles, I thought this over in a geek way and because of my loyalty to Community I couldn’t look past Donald Glover

Donald Glover spider-man

To be honest with you! I think this would be a great casting choice! (defiantly over Jaden Smith!) this is were Glover could flex his acting muscles, this will also let him keep his quirky humour that will suit the spider man character!

I know I properly thinking way to much about this kind of thing! but hey! it’s fun too speculate right? like everyone is talking about who should play Doctor Strange since Joaquin Phoenix negotiations are over.

Personally I would just love to see Benedict Cumberbatch in the Marvel universe playing the sorcerer supreme but this rumour has died down lately, with this Ethan Hawke has been mentioned and I totally agree, everything I have seen him in, he has but in a good performance. Wordpress- Ethan Hawke

With all the rumours about who is going to be part of the Marvel Universe, I decided to think of the actors and to play these parts

First one would be Captain Marvel she has been mentioned recently, I then put two and two together and got Sarah Michelle Gellar, Since Joss Whedon is all over the MCU and he likes to use people he knows… I thought Sarah Michelle Gellar could be Captain Marvel.

00adb6e8f9a12273_SarahMichelle_Gellar.xxxlarge_2captain_marvel___legacy_by_witchysaint-d4vtkw0

Now this is just my thoughts! obviously this is not true and are many issues to think of is SMG to old to play captain marvel? would they want to do with someone younger? this all depends on the people that get paid to make these decisions. If they do want to go with a younger actress then my I suggest a kick ass Emily Blunt??

With other mentions of Wonder Man (Maybe he is the one that could die, cause he does a lot) I know it is an easy choice to cast Sean Bean to be cast as wonder man cause he also died a lot! but I think again based the ages of the character Clive Owen could be a decent choice to play Wonder man?

wonder_man_dammit__color_comp__by_dharmajon-d6rqzuz Wordpress- clive owen

Iron Fist is not the first super hero to pop in your head when it comes to marvel but he apparently he is going to be in the Netfilx gang with Daredevil and Luke Cage, maybe the popular Charlie Hunnam could take a shot at playing a super hero as his work on TV has been great, or maybe he is becoming to big to play this type of hero? who knows?

Iron-Fist-(Earth-1610) MV5BMjE5NjE5Mzk2MV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODI5MDE1Ng@@._V1._SY209_CR4,0,140,209_

Next I am going to talk about one of my new favourite super heroes…Black Panther! at first I turned to one of favourite actors to play him and that would be Idris Elba because he already can do and African accent due to his work on Mandela, I highly doubt this would happen though to my disappoint. So I was thinking who can hold a film and do a great job at it? Chiwetel Ejiofor that’s who! his work on 12 years a slave has great!, this had lead me to think he can do a great job at playing the king Wakanda!

Let me know what you think who should who and if you agree, Thanks for reading!
