Avengers: Endgame takes over Avatar’s title as highest grossing film
July 21st, 2019 under Marvel Comics. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 2010, Avatar sunk Titanic’s record as the highest-grossing film in the World. This weekend, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, announced at San Diego Comic-Con’s Avengers: Endgame took that title away from the little blue people. Oh wait, that is Smurfs. I still have never seen Avatar because everyone told me it was boring.

Anyways, Avengers did it in 12 weeks however it took Avatar around 30 weeks. While the Superheros took on the World, domestically that title still belongs to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Three movies I have not seen. In fact of the top 10, I have only seen two of them. Rounding out the list is Avengers: Infinity War, Jurassic World, Marvel’s The Avengers, Furious 7, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Black Panther. DC Comics really needs to amp up its movie game.

Avengers: Endgame takes on home video on the 30th, where I am sure it will break many records. What I assume will not break any records are the Avatar sequels that come out in 2021 and 2023.


Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is ending
July 18th, 2019 under Marvel Comics. [ Comments: none ]

Did you know that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is airing its sixth season on Friday nights? Did you also know it was picked up for a seventh one that is going to air next summer? Nope? Then it won’t you surprise you that ABC announced today that show will not be back for an eighth season.

I guess with Avengers: End Game seeming like a natural end for crossovers and the Disney app coming soon, there is no reason to continue. I have heard it is good, but I am so over the comic book craze.

Funny how Marvel does better on the big screen than DC Comics that does better on the small screen.


Avengers: Endgame did OK at the box office
April 28th, 2019 under Marvel Comics. [ Comments: none ]

A few weeks ago, I asked my friend, who camped out for a few of the Star Wars movies, what movie is going to break more records, Avengers: Endgame or Star Wars: Episode IX. Without hesitation, he said Avengers.

The weekend box office numbers are out now for the Marvel Comics Universe movie, and he was right. It made $350 domestically and $1.2 billion internationally. While that is very impressive, according to Box Office Mojo, it broke 20, yes 2-0, records including largest preview, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and combined weekend totals. The film made an average of $75,075 in 4,662 theaters.

I wonder if Disney wishes this was more like Avengers: Almost Endgame so that they could squeeze out on more sequel.

A lot of people went to see it, some multiple times, and I am not one of them. I still have to watch a bunch of previous movies in order to understand what is going on. Which hopefully by then, the theaters will be nearly empty as compared to being all full now.

Finally, how far does the movie have to go to be the #1 movie of all time domestically and internationally? Star Wars: The Force Awakens made $936,662,225 while Avatar made $2,787,965,087. So next weekend basically.

Have you seen it yet? Or am I the only one?


Rel and The Gifted were not gifted another season
April 18th, 2019 under Fox, Marvel Comics. [ Comments: none ]

While no show has officially been cancelled this season, the networks are starting to announce what shows will not be back in the fall. Fox got it started by not renewing Rel and The Gifted for another season. The news is no surprise because both shows did poorly in the ratings.

Lil Rel had this to say about the cancellation, “I want to thank all the loyal 2 million plus people that tuned in every week to my show… I’m so proud of what we did and it was a dream come true… I got a chance to not only create a show based off my material and some real life events I got to work and create magic with my friends… God is so good and I’m truly blessed… Thanks again for the huge opportunity and it’s on to the next one… I learned a lot and it’s still a huge accomplishment for me to pull this off… I wanted to make a dramatic comedy with heart and I did that… I know I made you proud Mom!!!!!! #REL”

There are reports that Marvel is going to shop The Gifted around, but I doubt anyone will want it. After 2 seasons of low ratings and no buzz, I cannot see anyone being like I want to blow money on it. It is no Lucifer, Brooklyn Nine-Nine or Designated Survivor.

It will be interesting to see what shows, if any, will be saved by someone else this year.


What happens when The Avengers’ cast tries to tell a story
April 9th, 2019 under Chris and Liam Hemsworth, Don Cheadle, Jimmy Kimmel, Marvel Comics, Scarlett Johannsson. [ Comments: none ]

Jimmy Kimmel Live asked the cast of The Avengers cast to read a children’s story about Thanos. It started off nicely with Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans. Then they got to Wakanda and that was it. At that point, the story went to hell. Hopefully, the movie will have a better ending, but since it is called Endgame, I doubt it.
