Could Ant-Man Be The Most Powerful Avenger? (Video)

This one is more [theoretical] science than science fiction, and I will tell you in advance… I did not get it (even after the second watch) totally. But that last ‘outtake’ point that Kyle makes… I got that the first time! In fact, me and @RealSuperKing were talking about the ‘mass problem’ on “Ant-Man” in a different way while back: When he gets super-tiny, but retains his mass, wouldn’t he crack anyone’s arm he ran up?? SCIENCE!!

When you think of powerful Avengers, you probably think of Hulk or Thor, but should we be considering Ant-Man too? Kyle has the quantum realm science on this week’s “Because Science”!

This ep is awesome to watch. Now, do NOT let all this ruin your movie-watching experience. I won’t. In fact, I’m hoping to see an ‘easter egg’ in the “Ant-Man And The Wasp” movie that hints at Ant-Man giving Thanos the business… and saving the world #InfinityWars #HelpUsScottLang #MaybeOurOnlyHope

Action-Thriller “The Predator” Gets A Proper Reboot (Trailer)

In theaters on September 14, 2018, expect to hear some hollering at screens; the good, excited fan kind. Seen some lameness in the extensions of Schwarzenegger’s classic, but this one looks like the one that will allow us to collectively hit the reset button and forget about those ‘others.’

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
– 20th Century Fox

And Sterling K. Brown striking while that iron is still hot. And Keegan-Michael Key in there (because why let his partner Jordan Peele grab up all the movie review column space). Ha!

New ‘Bumblebee’ Transformer Movie Features Iconic Yellow Volkswagen Beetle Vehicle Form (Trailer)

Not mad at this at all. Feels like this flick’s storytelling will move closer to the comics and old cartoons. Good stories, maybe enough to pull a good movie from. When the Transformers emerged from 4 million years stasis on Earth, Bumblebee was a key figure. Though not the biggest or strongest, he was often entrusted with important spy missions, with protecting the Witwickys (Sparkplug, who helped discover a fuel conversion process for the Autobots, and his son Buster)… plus he could SWIM (comic fact-checking by ojones1, so y’all can ‘at’ him if you wanna argue, hahaaaa)!

Of course, Hollywood won’t stick to the 80s story too tight, but this still could make for a good holiday film.

The End Of “Avengers: Infinity War” Explained (Video)

WARNING: Do NOT watch if you have not seen ‘Infinity War’ and do not want it spoiled!

Okay, Marvel usually licenses properties in 3’s, but there is a lot of grain and grist in the rumor mill saying there will be an ‘Avengers 4’… and bits & pieces viewers got by the movie’s end actually make that make sense.

Whoa. You’ve just come out of Avengers: Infinity War. You’ve cheered at all the fights. Laughed at all the jokes. You’ve been shaken, speechless and sobbing. You’ve made an appointment for therapy for tomorrow. Don’t worry…we’re all right there with you. There’s only one cure for the post-Infinity War blues, and that’s diving straight into the ending and trying to figure out what the hell just happened — and what the hell is going to happen next. Strap in, put your helmet on, and prepare your haunches, people. Here’s the ending of Avengers: Infinity War explained. And of course, gigantic, earth-shattering spoilers ahead. Last chance to turn back…

“Avengers: Infinity Wars” Just Hit Theaters, And Now Marvel Drops An Extended Teaser For “Ant-Man & The Wasp” (Trailer)

Is Marvel trying to take DC out? Asking for a friend (who may or may not be worried about DC’s survival in the coming months). Check it. “Black Panther” was the Spring face smash across the movie industry… Then “Avengers: Infinity Wars” followed up with the heart stomp… and they still have “Deadpool 2” and “Ant-Man & The Wasp”. Plus all the Marvel TV series coming back and coming soon this summer and fall AND the Netflix game Marvel is killing.

Oh wait, I’m sorry. DC had a good debut season for “Black Lightning.” Respect. But that about it.

Just watch the trailer. And somebody tell DC to step it up over there!

SYFY Set To Tell The Story Of ‘The House Of El’ On “Krypton” (Trailer)

Okay, I’ll be there for this. Not an avid fan of SYFY series, but the channel has put out a couple of gems. Hope this one is good.

The legacy of the House of El is no longer safe. Brainiac is coming. Rao help us all.
Krypton premieres 3.21 on SYFY.

In particular, I want to see how the ‘House Of El’ will play out. Jor-El – father of Kal-El (aka Superman) – and most of the El ancestry is not known to us; which is good because that means there is a greatly-reduced chance of making fanboys and purists upset.

And there has been talk of the Kryptonian deity Rao on The CW series “Supergirl.” I’m interested in that story angle, too. Seeing as how Superman is pretty much a ‘god’ on Earth… what does a god’s god and religion ‘look like’ in this canon?

Of course, there is Brainiac. If they f**k that story arc up there will be consequences and repercussions!

‘Deadpool 2’ (And Cable) Coming To A Theater Near You In May 2018 (Trailer)

“Deadpool” was an epic cinematic bonus chapter of the Marvel Entertainment movie anthology. Take that part seriously, but not much else… even the serious characters. Like Cable: serious dude. But in this wacky Wade Wilson world, best believe you will be getting in quite a few chuckles.

After surviving a near-fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
– 20th Century Fox

See? Can’t even be serious in the trailer write-up.

(Sidebar: How did Josh Brolin land the role of Thanos AND this Cable role?? Those are some huge Marvel characters; with a huge chasm between them in the Universe.)
