In a strange turn of events, North Korea’s insane Sony hack released thousands of emails and files to the public, including TONS of back and forth between Marvel and Sony about how Spider-Man would be handled down the line. This has led many to believe that Spider-Man could be included in future Marvel movies, such as Avengers: Infinity War, or perhaps sooner (as in Captain America: Civil War). This possible tease for fans of the superhero genre is the definition of tantalizing. Sony and Marvel might soon be in cahoots.
But one movie we’ll likely never ever see? An Avengers VS JLA film. The rights would just be too tricky. Thankfully there are some truly brilliant people out there on the Internet who feel the need to show us what a merge like that would mean: truly epic battles. If you haven’t already checked out the fan-made trailer that pits Marvel’s characters vs DC’s you should really take a few minutes to bask in its immensity. It’s well-spliced to look as though the different heroes from the different universes are actually battling it out.
Mind you, it might be TOO epic. A movie with that many fight scenes and characters would really need to be broken up, unless there’s nothing to it except fighting. And what the heck was Gandalf’s voice doing in there?
I apologize again for the lack of content on the blog. It’s been a busy few weeks. Reading two books back to back. Listening to a third (which I may have a review up soon). Mapping the Cosmere. Work. And planning a wedding.
