Like Our Hope For The Project, Luke Evans Has Abandoned The Crow

The Crow 3

I remember the day that I bought my first issue of The Crow.  It was the summer of my freshman year of high school and I (decked out in the usual goth garb) was headed to the now extinct Atomic Comics in Phoenix to grab an issue of The Vampire Lestat comic book.  As I went up to the counter with my copy of Lestat, the clerk asked if I had ever read The Crow, to which I responded “nope”.  The clerk directed me to the first issue and I never looked back.  When the movie adaptation starring Brandon Lee hit theaters in 1994, I was there on opening night and already knew the soundtrack by heart.  While it was a world away from the comic book series, the movie was special in its own right and had a generation of goths supporting our own superhero while mourning the man that died while portraying Eric Draven on screen.  Fast forward about 20 years and talks of a reboot have been making the rounds for years but each time it comes close to fruition, some other stumbling block stops any progress.  Well, yet another road block, this one if the form of Luke Evans, has just halted the reboot project yet again.

Like many people, Scooby-Doo has been a part of my life ever since I can remember.  When I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to get home after school to watch my favorite Scooby-Doo reruns, or for Saturday mornings to watch A Pup Named Scooby-Doo back when it was a brand new series and Saturday morning cartoons were king.  I loved all of the incarnations of the series but my favorite was The New Scooby-Doo Movies.  Every episode featured a guest star and watching my favorite superhero, Batman, working a case with my favorite teenaged sleuths (I wouldn’t discover The Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew until a little later) was one of the most exciting things in my young life.  Those days are long gone but thanks to a new animated feature that will throw wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan in the mix with the Mystery, Inc. crew, perhaps fans can relive a bit of the glory days.

That ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark’ Remake Is Finally Finished After 33 Years

- 11-14-14Uncategorized Posted by Aspry Jones

use this first

Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb were just 10 and 11 years-old when they started shooting this thing. I halfway remember it being in the news a little bit, but completely forgot about it because life. They borrowed props, said goodbye to lunch money, and recruited friends to help out in their little recreation of Spielberg’s magnum opus, ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark.’ ‘Raiders’ is one of the most amazing movies ever made and was probably a catalyst that sparked my epic nerdity. That’s what makes me kinda jealous of these guys. I’d have loved to have gotten together with my boys and remade an incredible film, but my friends suck and don’t do cool things. So, basically here’s a story about guys I wish I was friends with. (more…)

When James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy hit theater screens it didn’t take long for fans to wonder where the hell their Dancing baby Groot toy was. In fact, many couldn’t, and wouldn’t wait so they went ahead and made their own. It seemed like such a no brainer, the Internet exploded when dancing Groot clips started to hit, but why no official toy? Now James Gunn has spilled the beans on No-Dancing-Baby-Groot-Gate. (more…)

‘Thor’ Co-Writer Promises There Will Be Blood in ‘Ragnarok’

When it was announced that the third Thor movie, which will be in a theater near you in the summer of 2017, was going to be subtitled Ragnarok, there were a lot of questions about the full meaning of the word in the context of the Thunder God’s next solo adventure. “Ragnarok” literally means “the final destiny of the gods,” which can be taken any number of ways, but that word “final” has some very specific implications. So we’re forced to wonder, is Ragnarok going to be a blood bath? Will it be, in effect, the final Thor solo adventure? We can’t answer that last question, but one of the co-writer’s is definitely pointing to an affirmative on that first question. (more…)

‘The Crow’ Will Not Be A Direct Remake – Goths Across The Globe Sigh With Relief

“Remake” is the name for catastrophe on the lips and hearts of all fanboys.  The hate of remakes, reboots, reimaginings, etc., that most fanboys feel is almost palpable when the words are brought up in geeky company.  Many of us have our ideas of just what a property should look like, especially when it is a comic book or nostalgic  property, and trying to change our ideas of what those properties should look like is almost as impossible as finding that perfect cosplay the night before a comic convention when you only have $5 in your pocket.  One of the remakes that has drawn constant ire ever since the rumors of a reboot first started up a couple of years back is James O’Barr’s gothic classic, The Crow.  For many people, remaking 1994’s The Crow is about as sacrilegious as having Mel Gibson rewrite the bible then calling it gospel.  Well, if the man behind The Crow, O’Barr, is to be believed, some of Eric Draven’s most zealous fans can relax a bit, because the reboot will not be a remake of the 1994 film, which famously starred Brandon Lee.  So, what will fans be getting?

Here’s a fun fact. If you fully spell out Robert Downey Junior‘s name, the only vowel in the English alphabet missing is an “A”. You know, A-E-I-O-U-&-Sometimes-Y. Now word is making the Internet rounds that someone at Marvel felt that obvious hole in Robert Downey Jr’s life needed to be filled. Filled with that 30 foot tall Avengers “A” in the movie, the one pictured above. (more…)

No New X-Men Characters?!? Aw, Say It Ain’t So, Marvel!

Yesterday, we reported that the Marvel temper tantrum that resulted in the cancellation of the Fantastic Four comic book series’ was no more than the internet’s best way to avoid blaming itself.  Rather than accepting that low sales killed FF, many fans are blaming Marvel’s decision to pull the plug on the upcoming Fantastic Four movie.  If these fans are to be believed, Marvel is actively trying to sabotage the film’s success by removing any products that they consider advertising for the 20th Century Fox reboot.  This notion seemed completely ridiculous and implausible, considering the fact that Marvel really has nothing to fear from any other studio at this point.  Well, as much as I hate to think it, we just received some news that lends more credibility to rumor.

Seth Rogen And Duncan Jones Just Got People Excited For ‘Preacher’

Preacher is one of those properties that was kicked around Hollywood for years before a live action adaptation was finally snatched up by the unlikeliest of show runners: comedy masters Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.  Now that we know that the comic book adaptation has a home on AMC, questions about other aspects of the production have started to crop up in people’s minds.  To date, there have been no announcements that would give fans of the hit comic book series even a hint as to who would fill the shoes of Jesse Custer, the “Preacher” mentioned in the title, or who would be at the helm of the adaptation.  While it may not be anywhere near official, Seth Rogen and director Duncan Jones (the upcoming Warcraft) recently had a very interesting Twitter conversation about that exact subject.

The ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Movie May Have Just Landed A Huge Marvel Star

Can we all agree that Robert Downey Jr. is one of the best things to ever come out of Hollywood?  The man has some serious acting chops and inspires other actors to bring out their best game; his tragedy-turned-success story is an infamous example of how someone one can pull themselves out of the deepest depths and still come out smelling like roses; and he is a hell of a charming leading man.  Marvel demonstrated their pure brilliance by grabbing the only man anyone can even see in the Iron Man suit these days and while this may take him out of the running for any other superhero, a new video game movie adaptation may have grabbed Mr. Downey for a role, giving fanboys and fangirls yet another reason to love geekdom.
