Who's Next? Part Two

By Corey Floyd

A few months ago, I talked about potential casting choices in future comic book based films. If you haven’t seen it check it out here http://amerimemedia.blogspot.com/2017/03/whos-next-part-1.html?view=mosaic . Now I’m ready to return to the casting gauntlet with a few more roles and who should play them. None of these are set in stone by any studio just a few thoughts on who can play who.
  
First in our lineup is Edward Nigma aka the Riddler. He is part of Batman rogue’s gallery known for using more brain and a lot less brawn truly a match of intellect for batman. Since Cory Michael Smith is covering the more psychotic side of Riddler in the Gotham series I want to focus more on the methodical side of him. There has been a huge fan push for Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons to play him. I don’t think I would work out well because Sheldon is too damn annoying and the portrayal would become comedic. I think Matthew Gray Gubler from Criminal Minds would work out very well.  Besides he’s already played him in the Assault on Arkham animated movie (better than Suicide Squad check it out). Let’s be honest at least DC animation is right on the money more the DCEU this choice would be great. He has already shown on his hit show that he can be smart and dangerous without touching a weapon.  

My next Idea is Adam Warlock. 

For those of you who watched the extra credit scenes from Guardians of the Galaxy. You know that they hinted at Adam Warlock in the next Guardians film. The next stage in evolution for The Sovereign. Naturally is going to be different from his original origin. I was scratching my head about this one for a while but I think I have a winner.

Jared Padalecki from the long running Supernatural series is a sure bet in my book. He has shown a lot of growth as an actor in this series and maybe it’s time for him to return to the silver screen just like Warlock he can be a good or bad guy plus he has the potential physique already has the hair. His first two adventures in film were not the best projects (Friday the 13th reboot & House of Wax reboot) but maybe third time's the charm. Maybe we can throw Jensen Ackles in as the new John Blaze too.

My Last choice is a hard one because there are no official announcements so call this wishful thinking.

IronHeart aka Riri Williams the teenage prodigy. I feel like when they announce the next phase for marvel studios this will be one of the steps being made. Not saying that they will Kill off RDJ’s Iron Man but perhaps he takes a leave of absence and a certain young lady builds her own. Now I have a couple of choices here so here me out. My first choice is Amandla Stenberg. Most remembered for her role as Rue in The Hunger Games she has been consistently working on film and TV. Her current film Everything shows a display of an innocent side (warning this film will come for your tears). While the real attitude she gives off in real life will transition very well to screen. She is at the perfect age to cast for this role, it would be just like hiring Tom Holland as Spiderman.

My other draft pick is Skai Jackson. Who, at such a Young age, has a work history challenging some adults in Hollywood. She's already been called the next big star. She has a very strong fan base thanks to her roles on Nickelodeon & Disney. Either choice would really work out. I think Disney would love to have one of their stars from the little screen make to the Big screen and still be under their roof.


Of course, all these picks are just my opinion. I assume you have a few of you own don’t be shy hit us up on FB, Instagram & Twitter.

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…

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.
1 Scarecrow:
The man that induces fear, Dr. Ichbod Crane this is one sick puppy Just never hope you have to see him for a psych evaluation. He will find out what you fear most and use his fear toxin make you do his bidding or meet your worst nightmare. He has even sent…

KIN (movie review) by Corey Floyd

I saw the trailer for KIN a while back. It had my curiosity. Black kid finds a gun that looks like it's from a Decepticon. He tries to protect his family... Hey, it looks better than the robot dog movie that you're already ignoring for obvious reasons. Anyway, I was lucky enough to see a screener of the film the other night and drank a few red bulls so I could bring a review to you.
Eli is a young ambitious kid who is mourning the death of his mom. While salvaging the abandoned buildings of Detroit he finds an Alien Weapon. Naturally, he keeps it secret from his strict blue-collar dad, played by Dennis Quaid. Quaid tries to instill values into his youngest son (Eli) while his eldest son Jimmy returns home from prison. Jimmy can't be apart of the family until he repays his prison debt to the local crime boss Taylor Balick, played by James Franco.
I don't wanna give too much of the plot away... sorry. But... I can say that the movie is worthy of your hard earned dollars. T…
