You might know this one from the x-men 2 movie or the Deadpool film. I think it's a fun character so here's a little extra about Colossus.

Piotr Rasputin was born and raised in (you guessed it!) Russia. He worked on a collective farm and when his powers fist emerged he used them to help his fellow farmers. Piotr always knew he had a greater path in front of him. When the x-men were in trouble Xavier formed a new team of mutants to save his original x-men and this is when he contacted Piotr. The young Russian agreed to leave his native land and went to the US to train with Xavier.
Soon Xavier gave him the code name Colossus and when they managed to save the original x-men Colossus decided to stay in the US and remain an x-men.

I think it's a fun character and hope he'll return in the second Deadpool or who knows? Maybe we'll see him in future x-men movies.

Wing Suit Spidey

If you haven’t read the early Spiderman versions (I’m talking real old, the first versions of Spidey created back in 1962) you probably didn’t know that Spidey originally had the small web wings (kind of like a flying squirrel).

Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield both didn’t have these but we now know that Tom Holland will rock the wings in his new suit! He won’t actually be able to fly (no use for the web shooters that way) but he will be able to glide above New York city.
If you think about it, it’s not a bad feature to have when you’re able to swing around the city. He is already kind of falling every time he lets go of his web and with the wing-suit he can guide his fall.

As we know Spidey will be facing the Volture in his upcoming movie so it might come in handy against a airborne endemie.
We don’t really know if Spidey added the wings himself or if it’s a update that Stark provided.
I like how there is a logical explanation on how Spidey gets his fancy suit. In the older films Peter Parker makes his own suits but I never found that it made much sense since they had limited resources as a normal teenage kid and still made amazing looking suits.
Stark making the suit just looks way more logical.

The Vulture

The Vulture! You guys might have seen this coming. I haven’t written about him before but since we always try to stay up to date on al the media we just had to handle this one.
If you haven’t seen the Spiderman homecoming trailer shame on you! Hurry to our Facebook page and watch it right away. Seriously!

If you have seen it, good fan! One of the most shocking reveals to me was the Vulture. I was quit sure that Shocker would be the main villain and i’d already posted about it (here). Maybe they’ll use two villains or maybe the rumours were just nonsens. It doesn’t really matter since now you’ll get to read about a second classic Spiderman villain.

Adrian Toomes was a former electronics engineer. He designed a suit which allowed him to fly and gave him superhuman strength. He’s a remorseless killer and quit old. It’s clear since he tries to regain youth many times in the comic series. At one point he even steals Peter’s youth leaving Peter Parker old but that (of course) did not last very long.

He teamed up a lot of times with other villains in order to kill the webslinger. He’s been part of almost every version of the sinister six.

When we look at the suit that will be used in the movie we can see it wil be way more mechanical than the comic versions which kind of makes sense since you else have to explain how a man is able to fly with a simple suit made of feathers and fur.
Still they did keep the typical green colour which is nice. All things aside the trailer looks great and i really just can’t wait for this to happen!

Review Doctor Strange

Hey guys, today we'll we reviewing the Doctor Strange so for those who didn't have a chance of seeing it SPOILER ALERT. For those who did see it, everything below is a personal opinion of how I experienced the movie. It is perfectly possible and oke if you don't agree with what I think.

Overall I have to say 'wauw'. They pulled it off again didn't they? The MCU had quit some challenges when it comes to Marvel stories, I can imagine it can't be easy to sell a talking raccoon but they did it and with Doctor Strange his complex story line they did it again.
Stephen Strange is a serious and big character in the comic books so they had to make sure the movie wasn't a flop and they did a good job. A lot of stuff in the comics is quit hard to follow, the different universes, the time controlling etc. Yet they were able to bring it on screen naturally and I think it wasn't that hard to follow.    

I liked the reference to the infinity stones. They revealed the time stone in the eye of Agamotto which is a little wink to those who are paying attention to the overall story line in the MCU films.
The fact that the ancient one dies at the end is something I didn't expect. I question if it was the right move since it's a big character to kill. It's perfectly possible to keep a powerful character alive without messing up the main character's story, watch what they did with Odin in the Thor franchise.

At last I wanted to point out that I really like that Mordo played a friend in this movie, the comic readers know that he will turn out to become Strange's arch enemy but they didn't rush it. At the end you kind off notice that he's not a big fan of the Ancient One no more but it's subtle which I think is a nice play.

Hey guys! Today we'll be talking about X-23. Some of you might have heard but the wrap has reported some pretty sweet facts about the new Wolverine movie called 'Logan'. A few of them we already knew like the fact that the movie will be played in the future and some stuff we could already assume seeing the trailer.
The thing which drew my attention most however was that they confirmed that the little girl traveling with Logan in the trailer will have claws like him but only two on each hand. There were a lot of rumors about X-23 being in the movie so I guess this kind off confirms it? No way of telling for sure but we'll tell you about X-23 in this post so you at least know who she is.

A top-secret program tried to recreate the original Weapon-X experiment. A lot of mutants were brought in and died because of this program. There was no mutant strong enough to endure the procedure. After a while when te scientist working on this project were on the verge of giving up when a young scientist called Sarah Kinney came up with the idea of making a clone.
They pulled all the strings they had to scramble all the DNA they had left of the original Weapon-X but it wasn't enough to make a new wolverine. The DNA was damaged and it had only x-chromosomes which meant they were not able to clone a man.
Sarah went on and made a female clone against orders, as a punishment she had to play surrogate mother to the child.

X-23 was raised and trained as a weapon. Knowing nothing but captivity there wasn't much humanity left in her. They created a special scent on which X-23 would go in animal mode and kill whatever was in front of her.
The highest bidder could pay her for a mission, where she killed numerous people. After a while her surrogate mother commanded her to kill the people leading the project so they could escape the facility but when X-23 was out obeying her mothers command one of the scientist exposed her mother to the scent. When X-23 returned she killed her mother. Right before she died she named X-23 Laura.

Again, we don't know for sure if they're going to use X-23 but you have to admit it kind off looks like it! I for one can't wait to see Logan.

New Marvel Studios Introduction Logo

Today is going to be a short post.

Didn't got a lot of time to post, but still for the people who haven't seen it yet, I'd like to introduce you to the new official introduction movie of Marvel Studios

What do you think about it?

Wednesday 20 July 2016


Today I'll be giving a little background on Nightcrawler. This mutant has appeared twice in Marvel movies (X-men 2 and X-men Apocalypse). Both adaptions painted a good physical picture about the character. He's hard not to notice with his blue skin and devil's tail but his family history was never brought up in the movies.

Nightcrawler was raised by Margali Szardos. Margali was gypsy sorceress traveling with a circus. She always claimed that she found Kurt Wagner (Nightcrawler) in a ditch next to his dead father but this was just a lie to keep the boy safe. The truth is that Nightcrawlers real mom is Mystique also known as Raven Darkholme and his father is the notorious warlord called Azazel.

When Mystique had Nightcrawler she heard that a mob found out about the kid. Afraid for her own and the kid's fait and not being able to take responsibility for her child she throws him in a well. Azazel being the father was not able to let go of the child zo he saved the boy from his fall in secret and gave the baby to his mistress Margali.

Nightcrawler is blue like his mother but has a tail and the mutant powers of his dad. His powers are teleportation, superhuman agility and reflexes, night vision and being able to blend into shadows. His skin color and tail were things he had since birth but his abilities only emerged when he was a teenager.

The Inhumans

When the Kree race first discovered life on planet earth they found nothing more than primitive homo sapiens. Humans were then harmless creatures but the Kree saw potential in them. They started to experiment and this is how eventually the inhuman race was created. After a while the Kree abandoned their experiments for reasons that are yet unknown.

The alien DNA lived on and the inhumans created a society of their own. They all had incredible powers and lived in seclusion from the other humans. In time they developed supreme technology way ahead of what the normal humans had discovered so far.

The secret society didn't last very long since the inhumans interacted with several earth super heroes. The Fantastic Four, The Avengers and The X-Men got all had help from the Inhumans throughout the years.

The original Guardians of the Galaxy

We all know Starlord and his crew from the MCU adaption of guardians of the galaxy. A lot of people (including myself) had some serious doubts about how this would turn out. It's a very different storyline than the other superhero movies and the whole thing leans more in the sci-fi genre than the superhero genre.
Disney did their magic and as usual they nailed it! I enjoyed the movie a lot and so did most people according to it's 8.1 rating on IMDb.

One of the things I did remember from the time before the movie came out was that I tried to do some research on the storyline but found a complete different story with all different characters. I found out there were other guardians of the galaxy and Starlord's crew is only one of the most resent ones.
In this post i'll be talking about the original guardians.

X-men Apocalypse review

I'm writing this post because Apocalypse is a hot subject right now. I'd like to share the differences between the movie and the comics and I would also like to give my personal opinion about certain parts of the movie. 

If you were wondering, I enjoyed the movie a lot. I love how they brought Jean Grey and Cyclops in the picture. Also Nightcrawler was brought very good and the whole weapon X drama building up, nice job FOX looks like they really start to realize what the fans like to see. 

A few things did bother me. First of all I think they went of way to fast with the whole Phoenix power scene. Jean Grey and her inner phoenix is a major part of the comic books and I think they went over it too fast. In the comic's you'll read that Jean has no control what so ever when she released the phoenix. It would be very dangerous to unleash such an amount of power surrounded by X-Men and Xavier of the comics would never allow it.

Thor Ragnarok

The title of the next solo film about the god of thunder will be 'Thor Ragnarok'. It seemed fitting to give a little info about that title. Ragnarok is a name given to the end of all things in old nordic religion. The character Thor and his brother and father are all based on this religion. 

Marvel has used the name 'Ragnarok' before. In the civil war comics he makes his entrance. Iron Man works together with Hank Pym and Mr Fantastic trying to make a clone of Thor. The real Thor is missing at that moment but Stark had a hair of Thor which he used to clone the Asgardian DNA. The whole thing (of course) goes south. Ragnarok goes evil and kills Goliath. Mr Fantastic deactivated the clone and they stored him away. 
At the time none of the heroes knew that Pym wasn't really Pym. But a skrull alien who took doctor Pym's form while the real Pym was held captivated. The imposter messed with the Ragnarok software and the clone rises again.

Civil War Comic vs Movie

Captain America: Civil War has been out in theaters for a while now. Most of you have enjoyed the movie, but I'd like to pinpoint some differences compared to the comic version. For those who haven't seen the movie yet, stop reading because this post might contain some major spoilers for you! 

The Marvel comics have had different versions of the civil war throughout the years. I'll be writing about the version written by Mark Miller, which is a recent one and the last one i've read.

Stephen Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme

Doctor Strange! The next big Marvel movie is set to be on the big screen in November 2016. You've probably all seen the trailer (if you haven't, you can watch it down below!). With this post we hope to shine a light on the basic storyline of the Sorcerer Supreme. We don't really know what MCU will do with the story but it's always fun to know the basics about a character who's getting his first movie.

The Maximoff twins

In the recent 'age of Ultron' movie, Disney has painted a pretty good picture of the Maximoff twins Pietro and Wanda. Pietro who is both impulsive and a little bit overprotective. Wanda who has trouble controling her powers and who doesn't even realize how much power she actually has. the characteristics were on point. 

Disney wasn't really specific about how they got their powers (something about Strucker experimenting with Loki's staf). The reason why the Disney movie doesn't really explain their origin story is easy. Wanda and Pietro (aka Scarlett witch and Quicksilver) are originally mutants!! Even better, they aren't just any mutants they are the children of Magneto himself! As we know FOX owns the rights on the x-men so that's why it was never mentioned in the Disney film. 

The shocking death of Quicksilver at the end of Avengers age of Ultron is a strange turn of events since the twins become two of the oldest members of the avengers in te comics. Wanda even falls in love with her fellow avenger The Vision at one point. 

Fox has already brought their version of quicksilver in the 'Days of future past' movie so chances are we're going to see the twins next to their old man on the big screen one day!
