Casting Choices (WHO’S NEXT continued)



By Corey Floyd


It has been confirmed that Will Smith will be playing Genie in the live action adaptation of Aladdin. As much as I love Will Smith I’m not loving this casting choice. Which lead me back to the lab and had me thinking about who I would have as the Genie. I also began to think about who could play other characters as well especially since the DCEU is probably gonna keep rolling on.  So here are a few of my casting pics. If you haven’t seen any of these before checking it out here.

As I said earlier I’m not 100% on board with Will Smith as the genie. But I do have a solution. Image result for dj khaled gif
Yes DJ KHALED. No, don’t close out this blog!!!! Hear me out if you have paid attention to this man you realize that he one of the funniest people out there. He’s energetic and handles himself great in all situations. His social media is hilarious and with his style and flair, he could make his own genie while Will Smith will automatically be in Robin’s shadow.

Next Up!! Virgil Hawkins aka Static Shock. This character made quite a few waves back in the day on Kids WB. He made a great appearance in the ill fated second season of Young Justice. With the CW fall lineup including Black Lighting I can help but feel Static will be behind the corner. So, of course, I have an idea or two.

My pick is Shameik Moore. Most of you should know him from the hit film DOPE and ill fated Netflix original The Get Down. I feel that he needs another chance to grace TV and after his energetic performance in The Get Down  that he could light up the screen as Virgil. Image result for jaden smith gif
Ugh! Fine if he continues to give compelling performances like he gave in The Get Down as well he can make a good Static too.  If he could only stop Trolling.  Related image
I’ve said this before but I am personally sick and tired of Arnold as the the Terminator. He has a good run I will not deny him that. After seeing Terminator Genisys it really is time for him to Hasta la vista. They had a better explanation on why he looked old than the actual plot of the film. By the way I hate Jai Courtney. But seriously he just doesn’t have it anymore. He doesn’t have that threatening look anymore, There’s no intimidation there he’s just too old it’s time to retire the T-800.  Meet the new Image result for brock lesnar
T-900.  Meet Brock Lesnar one of the most decorated fighters Heavyweight fighters in the world. He is currently the WWE champion.  He is also the perfect candidate for being a new Terminator. He doesn’t have to talk just look badass and kill. Look at this here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5SjD-KcSkE he already has guns down. James Cameron don’t you think it’s time for a upgrade? I certainly do. It’s time to take the series to

My last one for today would be DC’s Black Spider.  There has been several people who have the title but I’m covering Eric Needham. He’s a vigilante like Batman but he’s a killer. In the new 52 he’s actually a very competent assassin you use tactics similar to the league of shadows. Has not had many outings but he is very relevant in the new 52 a member of the suicide squad. Since the film had a more than modest take in the box office there will be a sequel despite “mixed” reviews. So naturally they need someone to fill in this live action character.
 
My suggestion is Michael Jai White. He’s already played a few characters before. Some my remember him as Spawn which is currently on Netflix. He also played Jax in the Mortal Kombat web series from Machinima. With his infamous Martial arts background I feel like he could be a shoo in for this character. He’s also a very funny guy, he is the man behind Black Dynamite so if they want humor from him in the movie he can do that as well.

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.

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…
