Everything Is Red… Avengers 4 Trailer.


I was awoken this morning by a text message by a good friend (Sup Hans) to the news that a second trailer to ‘The Avengers: Endgame’ now had a second (second) trailer.  The trailer has certain idiosyncrasies however, concerning Black Widows hair, and Captain America’s beard, which only leave me MADE of questions.  A black and white scene from older films where the only accents are red, a voice over (presumably from Peggy Carter) tripled with flashback/flash-forward scenes of both Ant-Man and Hawkeye, heavily suggest the use of some type of time travel.  However, take a heavy look at the trailer, and let us know what you think about it.  Not to mention the bit with Thor and Captain Marvel at the end, was quite good.

Heroes


 Heroes with superhuman powers have always been part of our history. From Greek mythology to the Scandinavian gods.  I have always been a big fan of the superhero genre. It is very interesting to read about these characters who want to do good and take risks every day just to ensure our safety. It is also interesting to understand why we have created these characters.  Artist Ashkan Honarvar took it to another level. Check the pictures below!

Thank God for Villains and Creeps.


Matrix-Reloaded-Villains-villains-7482655-1600-1200What is it exactly that makes a movie antagonist memorable?  It’s not just how many innocent people they dispense of, their powers or abilities, or even their look.  Sorry to say, but the Matrix 2 twins (pictured above) are NOT good villains.  After the 2014 Oscars, DJ Storm got together with some friends, and discussed the heroes montage presented at the award show.  There were many a hero that could have been added to the list, but more importantly it was noted that without incredible villains, those heroes wouldn’t have had a chance to show what they were made out of.   So in the first custom djstormsblog video, we present to you our list of SOME of cinema’s most memorable villains.   [NOTE: Horror Movie baddies were specifically left out, we didn’t forget about them.  And this video does have some foul language.]

Heroes: Reborn.

For anyone who remembers “Save the cheerleader, save the world.” we all have a new surprise to look forward to.  Heroes will be back in 2015 as a 13 episode event titled ‘Heroes: Reborn’.  There’s no word as to who (if anyone) from the original cast will be returning, but I’m sure with the massive fanbase the show had, that news will spread quickly when it’s released.

James Spader Cast as Lead Villain Ultron in ‘Avengers’ Sequel

Good news for James Spader – the quirky character actor is coming back in a big way as one of Marvel’s ultimate villains. Spader has just landed the title role in “The Avengers 2: The Age of Ultron,” the upcoming sequel to 2012’s record-setting superhero jamboree. Ultron is an evil robot that can travel through time and uses his talents to change the present so he can have the upper hand in the future. But, departing from the comic, writer-director Joss Whedon plans to strip some of Ultron’s powers for the upcoming film. “I knew right away what I wanted to do with him,” Whedon recently told Entertainment Weekly. “He’s always trying to destroy the Avengers, godd— it, he’s got a bee in his bonnet. He’s not a happy guy, which means he’s an interesting guy. He’s got pain. And the way that manifests is not going to be standard robot stuff. So we’ll take away some of those powers because at some point everybody becomes magic.” Spader’s Ultron will be making trouble for Marvel’s costumed heroes in the movie, including Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, and Thor. However, since Ultron is entirely mechanical, it remains to be seen if Spader will be on set in a suit, interacting with his fellow cast members, or if he’ll be providing the voice for a CGI creation. So far, Marvel and Disney haven’t weighed in on the matter. Whedon first revealed that Ultron would be the main villain in the “Avengers” sequel during his appearance at San Diego Comic-Con in July. And that Spader will be playing a less powerful Ultron, this should give fans plenty of room to speculate on how the writer-director will approach the character, given Spader’s ability to play bad guys who are at once charming and a little creepy.
