Doctor Strange

–> Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo , Mads Mikkelsen as Kaecilius and Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One. –> Comics Recommendations (1) Steve Ditko run has to be the essential read.

Untitled Wolverine film

–>Starring Hugh Jackman as Logan / Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier / Professor X ( probably his last X men movie) Old Man Logan has been the rumored story plot for a long time, but Fox doesn’t seem to have any other character for it. Other rumors have been of Death of wolverine/Enemy of the state.   –> Recommendations: (1)Claremont miniseries          (2)Greg Rucka run – Wolverine vol. 3 #1-19 (3) Jason Aaron Run (4) old man logan + Enemy of the state ( Millar) (5) Death of wolverine.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

–> Starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill / Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu Udonta, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha Kurt Russell as Planet Ego, Sylvester Stallone has been cast as a Nova Corps member, probably a villain. And as always, Stan Lee!   –> Comics recommendations. GoTG 2 will be following a COMPLETELY NEW STORY. SO nothing much to be recommended for that. Still, (1)  Thanos Imperative and “Celestial Madonna” arc ( for Mantis) may give some…

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman

–> Starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta   –> Comics Recommendation   (1) George Pérez run might be considered essential read, as the movie seems to be doing an origin story with WW 1 instead of WW 2 . (2) Rucka, Azz and Byrne run are also worth reading for this movie.   Trailer

Spider-Man: Homecoming

July 7, 2017
Spider-Man: Homecoming

  First of the many, each movie will feature Peter Parker in one year of his High school. Much is shrouded in mystery where this movie is concerned. As of now, Michael Keaton is supposed to be Vulture, Zendaya or Laura Harrier is playing Liz Allan, on whom Peter has a crush. Bokeem Woodbine is supposed to be Shocker,  Michael Chernus is cast as Phineas Mason / Tinkerer, Angourie Rice is cast as Betty Brant    Lack of Info makes it hard to recommend for, but…   –> Recommendations : (1) Makes sense for Ultimate spider-man to be the essential…

Gambit

Gambit

COMPLETELY MADE UP DATE – to show approximate placement as per rumors.   We don’t know ANYTHING except that Channing Tatum is to play Gambit. I DOUBT EVEN FOX KNOWS ANYTHING, lol. I suspect we will get a Gambit+Rogue movie but no idea, truly. So it is hard to recommend for, but… (1) Claremont’s run on X men (2) The Hearts of Thieves or Honor Amongst Thieves might be a good arc to go for.

Thor : Ragnarok

–> Starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Karl Urban as Skurge and Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner / Hulk    –> Recommendations (1) PLANET HULK is THE essential read for this movie.  (2) World War Hulk might be the essential complimentary read here. (3) Walt Simpson’s run on Thor, especially Hella’s arc might be essential too. (4) Dan Jurgen and Jason Aaron’s run of Thor should be read too.

FLASH

    Nothing much is known , Rogues are gonna be the villains. Rogues are the antagonist of Flash currently led by Captain Cold including Mirror Master, Heat Wave, Weather Wizard, the Trickster, Pied Piper, the Top, and Captain Boomerang. Unlike most villains , THEY HAVE A CODE. In fact, they have helped Flash on times. Good decision on DC to stay away from speedsters as CW Flash is overdosing on that. (1) Final Crisis: Rogues’ Revenge ( Keep in mind that GEOFF JOHNS wrote it!) (2)  “The Gauntlet of Super-Villains” (Flash #155) (3) “A Meeting of Rogues” (Flash vol. 2 #19) (4)“Rogues Revolution” (Flash vol. 4 #10-12, Annual #1) (5) “Rogue War” (Flash vol. 2 #220-225)   In addition…
