Tom Hardy Is Sony’s Venom

Xben3000 here with some interesting movie news today! Sony has announced that Tom Hardy has been cast to play Eddie Brock (Venom) in the upcoming Venom film that is being produced for Sony’s Marvel Universe. We also know that the film will be released October 5, 2018 with production starting this fall. I honestly was not expecting any casting news anytime soon with this film, but it seems Sony is dead set on making this a reality.

 

I mean props to them, but Venom is not my favorite Spider-Man villain. I’m interested in seeing how they go about doing this film. I am guessing we will see things from Eddie’s perspective, but will this lead to him fighting Spider-Man at the end of the film, or would it be something else. With this film not being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will people be less inclined to check it out?

Like always let us know what you think. I’m still XBen3000 and I’m out!

Review: Transformers Titan Returns Deluxe Class Topspin

Hello Hero Club, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Today we will be looking at Transformers Titan Returns Deluxe Class Topspin.  Out of all the figures released in Wave 4 of the Transformers Titan Returns Deluxes, I personally think that Topspin is my most favorite.  Seeing as the character did not receive many figures over the years with the movie version being the major release of the character it was quite surprising to see an update to the character. Although this does come from the fact that I actually owned the G1 toy for many years and with that it does come with some personal attachment reasons for liking the updated version of the character. That being said the overall design is really well done and Hasbro did a fantastic job transitioning the character into the Titan Returns line.  If you are a fan of the Wreckers or specifically Topspin than I personally think this is a must have. I got this from BBTS.

Marvel’s Inhumans Teaser Trailer

We have the first teaser trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans television series. After seeing the photo of the cast in their costumes. I’m not to confident if I’m being honest. I’ll probably do a post where I rant about the cast photo and their costumes. Looking at the short teaser, it seems as though Maximus is doing his usual gimmick of taking out Black Bolt and ruling the Inhumans.

 

That said we do have an IMAX date for when you can see the first two episodes, September 1st 2017. After that it will be on ABC that fall. As always comment down below and let me know what you think. I’m still XBen3000 and I’m out!

Doctor Aphra Wins Star Wars 3.75 Inch Vintage Collection Fan Vote

As the Star Wars Day festivities continue, fans of the 3.75 Inch Vintage Collection will be in for a treat in 2018 as the winner of the fan vote was none other than Doctor Aphra.  

For those who are aren’t familiar with the character, Doctor Chelli Lona Aphra is a new character that was introduced in the modern Marvel’s Star Wars comics.  She made her debut in Marvel’s Darth Vader comic series in 2016 and quickly became a fan favorite character in the new expanded universe.

Seeing as I just recently finished the main Vader story about a month or so ago I am quite excited to see a release of Doctor Aphra in the Vintage Collection.  Hopefully she will also be released in the 6 Inch Black Series as well.
