urlLet me start off by saying, overall, I enjoyed Man of Steel. It was well acted, had impressive visuals, an excellent score by Hans Zimmer, and was quite a fun ride. That being said, I went into this movie with an unfair expectation that – since the story was created by Christopher Nolan and produced by him – that it would be on par with Nolan’s Batman reboot, Batman Begins. In that respect, it wasn’t quite up there, and that damaged my view of the film

Bye Bye Mary Jane Watson

urlNews broke today, hot on the heels of the announcement that Sony will be going forward with both The Amazing Spider Man 3 and 4, that Shailene Woodley, who filmed scenes as Peter Parker’s love interest Mary Jane Watson, has been cut from the film. Director Marc Webb revealed that he wanted to streamline the story, and focus on Peter Parker’s relationship with Gwen Stacy in the upcoming Spider Man sequel. This would mean Mary Jane’s introduction in the 3rd film, and it was reported that the role would most likely be recast, and that Woodley would not make an appearance.

This news adds more heavily to the theory that the studio will go forward in the sequel with one  of the most memorable Spider Man arcs- where Gwen Stacy is killed. I, for one, in a desire to see more of Emma Stone’s portrayal of the character, hope they do not.

The Amazing Spider Man 2 is set to be released on May 4th, 2014.

Conspiracy Report: What Will Disney Cancel Next?

March 25, 2013 at 9:09 am | Posted in Conspiracy Report, Disney, Entertainment, Episode VII, Humor, Movies, Opinion, Regular Feature, Star Wars, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Television, The Clone Wars, Video Games | 4 Comments

We live in interesting times. Star Wars Episode VII is on the distant horizon with a pile of Star Wars films behind it. And then there’s this mouse going around throwing away all our toys while we’re distracted. The 3D re-releases, Star Wars 1313, Detours, The Clone Wars…it’s enough to drive a distraught Hutt swan-diving into the nearest sarlacc.

As any good conspiracist, we’re focusing all our immense wealth and resources (two refurbished mouse droids and a for-hire Gamorrean private eye who works for food) on what the mouse plans to target next. So, we called up our inside source Pluto to find out what Disney will cancel next. You won’t believe what we found out.

According to good old Pluto, the house of mouse has a list of items they’re crossing off one by one. While we’ve already seen quite a few projects marked off already, there are still five high priorities left for the trash bin. Continue Reading Conspiracy Report: What Will Disney Cancel Next?…
