VENOM 2018!!! I'm not buying it





By Corey Floyd



Last week Sony announced that they are doing a Venom film to be released in 2018. Now this sounds good, but I took a deeper look. According to my sources they are not even in preproduction. The only names attached to the project are a couple of screenwriters and a producer. Dante Harper is writing for Venom. His credits are a bunch of behind the scenes documentaries, so I guess he’s gonna be doing that. The other writer attached is Jeff Pinkner who wrote the Amazing Spiderman 2. He is also the executive producer of the DARK TOWER film, and has written the upcoming Jumanji sequel starring the Rock. Now this writing team doesn’t sound too bad, but I must admit the producers do makes this sound a lot better. We have Avi Arad most known for his work under Iron Man and the first two X-Men films. To be honest, he has been more involved in comic book related entertainment than anyone else in the industry. The other producer is Scott Rosenberg, most known for “High Fidelity,” “Con - Air,” and “Gone in 60 seconds.”
This is a pretty wild mix, right?
Sony said that Venom will not be part of the MCU. I doubt that. I think they need to play ball. Overall, I’m not buying a 2018 release. Like I stated earlier, they are very far away from just basic pre-production, casting etc. I see this as a 2019 thing. If they try to rush this movie, I predict that it will be a huge failure.  But hey, I could be wrong. (I’m usually not tho… lol)

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.


1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

Casting Thoughts By Corey Floyd

Recently John Boyega was seen at Marvel Studios and no one has heard anything since. My thoughts were in the air but an artist Boss Logic made something that got me thinking.   Now hear me out I know it sounds crazy but now that I see it in front of me it’s not crazy at all. We have seen the body transformations from Marvel before. John is in good shape but he’s not in Marve shape in a few months he could be the next Blade. Now I know there a few thousand of you out there yelling “Wesley Snipes is the only Blade blah blah blah “ I like Wesley I really do but at 55 I don’t see him moving like he used to and it’s time for younger blood. He wasn’t even moving like his old self in Blade Trinity.
I’m digging into Iron Heart again. Now a while back I had a few choices on the matter you can check them out here http://www.amerimewire.com/2017/05/whos-next-part-two.html but after watching Black Panther I have a new idea. What if Shuri became Iron Heart? It’s not a far-fetched idea. What if Sta…

Top 10 masks in comics by Braheim Comic Boss Gibbs

Ok, Edna, I understand why no capes easy to grab, villains can choke a hero out with his own cape, and don’t get me started on the fashion aspect of them they’re so Detective Comics am I right?  But, what about mask they definitely make more sense. With just eye covers your whole secret identity is safe from prying bad guys that want to do bad things. So you can continue taking the kids to soccer practice or living you billionaire playboy lifestyle. I’m looking at you, Bruce, Tony, and T'challa. Now that we’ve established that mask is essential to longevity in the superhero gig here are my top ten masks in comics. These mask strike fear or annoyance in everyone they come across friend and foe. In no particular order.
