Marvel Tried for an Affleck Matt Murdock Cameo in Multiverse of Madness

Back in November I posted a cryptic post about Multiverse of Madness regarding a cameo that Marvel was hoping to make happen, and since it hasn’t come out from anyone since then; I’ve decided to clarify what and who the cameo was going to be. Marvel made an overture to Affleck and his people offering him a very very tiny (probably less than a minute) cameo as Matt Murdock in Multiverse of Madness. The idea was to sort of peek into that universe and close the door on that version of the character, and after seeing how they gave Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man closure in No Way Home; the concept ma ..read more

No, I’m not back and I really do not have time to devote to a site or podcast, but I still talk to people and here some amazing things; such as this. Today I heard something from one of my longest sources about a cameo Marvel would like to happen. Apparently Disney/Marvel has begun the very preliminary communication with a former Fox Marvel star for a very tiny cameo to sort of peek into that universe and close the door on that version of this specific character. However, it doesn’t sound like they’re getting their hopes up of it happening as this person is believed to be very loyal to another ..read more

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Review

Just over a year ago, SquareEnix released Crystal Dynamics’ Marvel’s The Avengers. The long-awaited game arrived to find a gaming audience who seemed to want it to be something that it wasn’t. From people who wanted to be based on the MCU and not the comics, to some who don’t like multi-player games, the title faced an uphill battle. It also didn’t help that it launched in the middle of the pandemic, which likely affected the timing of content and updates after launch. I still like Avengers (the Wakanda update is great), but for those who wanted it to be a strictly single-player adventure with ..read more

Taskmaster’s Identity in Black Widow

No, I’m not back. But if I hear something cool I’ll still post it here and with Black Widow only a couple of weeks away one of the big fan theories about the movie is about to finally be solved; although not everyone is going to be happy. For the last year and a half some people have been trying to push the theory that Milena and Taskmaster are the same person in the movie (despite them appearing in scenes together). While others think Rick Mason is really in the Taskmaster suit. Neither of those appear to be the case. A couple of weeks ago a 4Chan leak surfaced that claimed to tell the truth ..read more

The Matrix Resurrections: The Best Sequel By Far?
ManaByte
by Jeremy Conrad
1y ago
I don’t absolutely hate the two sequels to The Matrix, I just think they are very inferior to the original movie. At the end of the first film, Neo is confident that he’s The One, but then for most of the first half of Reloaded he mopes around unsure that he’s The One. Even bigger than that, the action in both sequels comes off more performative than being part of the story. If you go back and watch the original movie, every fight scene and action sequence served a key purpose to move the story forward. That seemed to be missing from the sequels. This December the fourth movie will release on ..read more

Shang-Chi Toys Reveal the MCU’s Ten Rings

It’s always fun to see things about a movie that are kept secret until the early release of toys reveal it to the world. While nothing is as Earth-shattering as when Hasbro released a The Force Awakens Rey figure with a lightsaber a week before the movie arrived in theaters (and then Lucasfilm worked overtime to scrub fan photos of it from the Internet), the recent release of Marvel’s Shang-Chi toys has revealed one small change to the lore from the comics in the transition to the MCU. In the comics, the Ten Rings were actually rings that The Mandarin wore in each finger. That appears to be sl ..read more

Regarding the Big Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 5 Cameo

In the months since my retirement there’s been a rapid increase in the amount of bullshit that’s been spread around and happily consumed by people who only want to be told what they want to hear. And hey, there are people more than happy to spoof feed them the bullshit they crave. WandaVision and the backlash when Fox’s Quicksilver, Mephisto, Reed Richards, and Doctor Strange didn’t appear is a perfect example of this. Now that seems to be repeating itself with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Yes, there is apparently a cameo coming up in the next episode, but as with WandaVision I think peo ..read more

Over the weekend I Fleeted (all I do really is Fleet now because they vanish after 24 hours) a picture of the cover of The Brave and The Bold #93. Of course the fanbase who attacks anyone who dares to call them “toxic” sprung into action. Found this in my DMs this morning: So because someone puts up a Twitter story (Fleet) with a picture of Martian Manhunter from 50 years ago, they deserve to die of COVID… The post The SnyderCut Arrives Next Week, and The Death Threats Have Already Begun appeared first on ManaByte ..read more

Disappointed the Fox Quicksilver Wasn’t in WandaVision? Here’s Why He Couldn’t Be…

With the finale of WandaVision now aired, some are upset and furious that their belief that Evan Peters was playing Fox’s version of Quicksilver in the show wasn’t validated. For weeks, even months, “scoopers” who get along by telling people what they want to hear have been leading people to believe he was 100% the Fox version of Quicksilver in the show and it would lead to Fox’s Mutants entering the MCU via the multiverse. However there’s a very good reason why that couldn’t happen; despite fans wanting it to. I’ve explained it on the old podcast several times, but it all comes down to Hollyw ..read more

Why I’m Not Worried About JJ Abrams Being Involved With Superman (Again)

by Jeremy Conrad
1y ago
Last week it was revealed that JJ Abrams and Ta-Nehisi Coates would be rebooting Superman. Abrams will be producing and Coates writing, and as you’d expect the internet is already raging over this. On one side you have fans of a certain director cursing WBs name for daring to move on from that universe, and on the other you have people making wild assumptions about what Superman will be featured just due to who’s writing the movie. But I’m not worried. Firstly, Ta-Nehisi Coates has written both Captain America and Black Panther, and I’ve enjoyed his core Panther run and sad it’s ending. So I’m ..read more
