RUMOR: Is Spider-Man Going Back to Marvel?

Preface

  • Alright, I really need to talk about this news!
    • Cuz (a) it’s driving me crazy and (2) I’m a Spider-Man fan who hasn’t talked about this news almost at all.
  • During the Sony hacks, the biggest news to come out of it was that discussions had happened between Sony and Marvel about the Spider-Man character, and him possibly being sold back to Marvel.
    • In later emails though, it appeared that these discussions fell through.
  • Then in mid to late December, right as everyone was getting off from school and work for a vacation, another news story came up that Spider-Man was definitely going back to Marvel and appearing in Civil War, AND that Anthony and Joe Russo were signed onto directing a new Spider-Man trilogy at Marvel starting in 2017/2018.
    • But this went away because no major news outlets were covering it.
  • And NOW, Latino Review is reporting that Spider-Man missed the train for Civil War, though he is absolutely, positively, certainly, definitely, completely, wholeheartedly appearing in Avengers: Infinity War Part 1.
    • Latino Review isn’t the MOST trustworthy when I’m looking for movie news.
      • Typically I see Entertainment Weekly’s Facebook post about a news story, by which point it’s about as close to fact as it’s gonna get.
    • But I’m so tired of seeing these rumors that have been going around since God-knows-when, and know that everyone’s talking about it again, I’m gonna talk about it!
  • So remember, this is still a rumor for now, I’m gonna speculate what I think will happen, or what would be best to happen, though nothing is confirmed, and none of this may ever happen.
  • Super long intro is now done, so let’s go!

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb Review

Preface

  • The first Night at the Museum came out in 2006, when I was a kid and I really loved that movie.
    • Looking back on it now, it was a fun time with a really solid story and some good laughs.
  • Then I saw the second when it came out in 2009. And I didn’t like it as much as the first because the first was so new and defining!
    • Looking back now, yeah the script wasn’t as solid and it felt like kind of a cash-grab sequel.
    • Still a fun time, though maybe not a fresh review…
  • And I saw Secret of the Tomb tonight (finally) with some of my friends and all I wanted was some fun, childish humor and a couple good performances, and that would be enough to keep me entertained.
    • Man, I was wrong!!
      • As usual!
    • This wasn’t Pixar or Disney level film, but it was really solid, and super enjoyable!
