Marvel Horror Movies

Posted: 24 Apr 2018 04:11 AM PDT

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has indicated the Disney-owned, billion dollar 'Marvel Cinematic Universe' may branch off into a 'horror movie' genre, that could include vampire hunter "Blade", the swamp creature "Man-Thing" as well as mining a back catalogue of Marvel horror titles and characters that stretch back to the 1950's:

"'Horror' can mean a lot of things," said Feige.

"Did you mean a movie like 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'...

"...or 'Hostel' or a 'Friday the 13th' or a 'Poltergeist'?

"'Poltergeist' is a little bit more my wheelhouse. 

"That's such a great movie and it scared the heck out of me...

"...but it's really fun."

Tom Hardy's "Venom" - New Footage

Posted: 24 Apr 2018 03:34 AM PDT

Sneak Peek new footage, plus images from director Ruben Fleischer's Columbia Pictures' feature "Venom" based on Marvel Comics' 6-issue series, "Venom: Lethal Protector" (1993):

"...in the original Marvel Comics' story, 'Venom' makes an agreement with 'Spider-Man' that they will leave each other alone...

"...on the condition that Venom commits no crimes.

"Venom then moves from New York City to San Francisco, and takes up with a group of Californian 'mole people'.

"Shortly thereafter the father of one of Venom's victims seeks him out with a group of super-powered mercenaries to take revenge. Venom then has to take on offspring of the 'Venom Symbiote, including 'Carnage'..."

'Cletus Kasady' aka 'Carnage', debuted in Marvel Comics' "The Amazing Spider-Man" #344 (March 1991) followed by "The Amazing Spider-Man" #360...

...created by writer David Michelinie and illustrators Erik Larsen and Mark Bagley, based on elements of the precursor character 'Venom'. 

Along with Venom, the character belongs to a race of amorphous extraterrestrials known as the 'Symbiotes'. 

'Venom', aka the 'Venom Symbiote', was originally a super-villain sentient alien, debuting in Marvel Comics' "The Amazing Spider-Man" #300 (May 1988)...

...before evolving into an anti-hero, requiring a host to bond with for its survival.

The first known host was 'Spider-Man', who eventually separated himself from the creature when he discovered its true nature. 

The Symbiote went on to merge with other hosts. 

According to the 'Marvel Universe', the creature is considered one of the greatest threats to humanity...

...alongside 'Magneto', 'Doctor Doom' and the 'Red Skull'.

The Symbiote is capable of shape-shifting, as well as the ability to expand its size and mimic the appearance of other humanoids after it has obtained a host.

The organism can additionally conceal itself by altering its coloration or by becoming invisible, while exhibiting telepathic abilities.

The Man Called "Nova"

Posted: 23 Apr 2018 02:57 PM PDT

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, running down a list of Marvel characters in consideration for live-action films, confirmed Marvel Comics' "Nova", has "immediate potential" :

"...when the last surviving member of the elite 'Nova Corps', 'Rhomann Dey', is dying, he selects New York high school student 'Richard Rider' to replace him. Rider is given the uniform and powers of a 'Nova Centurion' but little instruction on how to use them. Calling himself 'Nova', Rider becomes a superhero, fighting 'Condor', 'Powerhouse', 'Diamondhead', the 'Corruptor' and the 'Sphinx'.

Rider discovers Dey's space ship orbiting Earth and uses it to journey to 'Xandar' with 'Doctor Sun', 'Powerhouse', 'Comet' and 'Crimebuster', where they join Xandar's war against the 'Skrulls'. With the help of 'Rom the 'Space Knight', the Skrulls are defeated..."

"We have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more 'immediate potential'," said Feige. "'Nova' is on that board, because of the connection to the 'Guardians' universe. 

"It is a very unique embarrassment of riches right now because there are so many characters that audiences are clamoring to see..."

"Marvel's Eternals" : Celestials and Deviants

Posted: 24 Apr 2018 02:47 AM PDT

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige has confirmed Marvel Comics' title "Eternals" is in early development for a live-action film:

"...'Eternals' is one of many things we are actively beginning to have creative discussions about to see if we believe in them enough to put them on a slate," said Feige.

Created by writer/illustrator Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics (July 1976), 'The Eternals' are a race of humanity, that is an offshoot of the evolutionary process that created sentient life on Earth.

The Eternals are led by the female Eternal 'Sersi', who can manipulate cosmic energy to grant herself immortality, invulnerability and reshape the molecules of other people or objects.

The 'Celestials', intended the Eternals to be the defenders of Earth, leading to war against their destructive counterparts, the 'Deviants'.

Sneak Peek new images of Pam Anderson ("Barb Wire") in the latest issue of "Intimately" (Spain) magazine, photographed by Carmelo Redondo:

"People always tell me, 'Reinvent yourself, re-this, re-whatever.'," said Anderson. 

" I haven't reinvented myself. It's an honest evolution. 

"I've always been authentic.

"I'm not an actress. I don't think I am an actress. I think I've created a brand and a business.

"Eventually you just have to realize that you're living for an audience of one. I'm not here for anyone else's approval...

"The true meaning of feminism is this: to use your strong womanly image to gain strong results in society.
