The last couple of months have been a rollercoaster when casting Doctor Strange. First we had reports that Joaquin Phoenix was in talks to play Stephen Strange; then it was revealed that Jared Leto and Tom Hardy were also in the running; then a few weeks back, yours truly blogged that Ethan Hawke was so close to signing that it was practically guaranteed. Last week, Keanu Reeves was a fan favourite for the role and he even said during an interview that if the script was right and if the director had a clear vision for the character that he would consider then people started losing their minds!!!!!!
Up until today I had given up on all the rumours and then suddenly I browsed on to Deadline.com and saw this heading: “Benedict Cumberbatch To Play ‘Doctor Strange’” and I immediately started The Harlem Shake (weren’t those awesome videos!) Cumberbatch is best known for the hit BBC series Sherlock and there is even Oscar buzz surrounding his performance in the ‘Imitation Game’ which will be released November 21st .
The only thing now is an official announcement from Marvel and we have our Sorcerer Supreme.
And now that this is out, here's what we've been cooking for all the fans. Drum rolls.....A Doctor Strange T-shirt. Available soon!
Hot or what?
Constantine debuted with great ratings this past Friday night even up against the World Series and that should say a lot. Variety reports solid numbers for the premiere and will most definitely get better as the show progresses during its first season.
Have a look at the article by Variety and let us know what you thought of Constantine.
Since the trailer from Avengers: Age of Ultron, featured Pinocchio's Song, I’ve Got No strings, the guys from NerdReactor decided to do a fun mashup with both Age of Ultron and Pinocchio.
I talked today in another blog post about how much the performing of Pinocchio's song with Ultron's face in the video, creepes me out.
Pinocchio was a real puppet until he was given life then turned into a real human being, becoming free. Ultron was a AI that went rampant, and I'm guessing him acting out in this next movie will also feature him exercising his new found free will, free from the strings of his original programming Tony Stark made him with in the first place.

Marvel releases first official Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer a few days early after Hydra leaked a low-res version!
The first time I watched the trailer, I remained speachless. Then I watched it again and again and again.
Watched it. Loved it. Holy God, did I love it!
Watch The Official Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer
The trailer revealed Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) confronting not only with Thor, but also with Hulk in the middle of the city. Is he going to be apart form The Avengers Team from now on? And wait until you hear what he says in the trailer, expressions such as: "It's the end" or "The end of the path I started us on". I mean what's going on? What's he referring with "us" ?
Maybe this is connected with the fact that Ultron is made up of Iron Man pieces. From what I recall they were all destroyed at the end of Iron Man 3. Remember? Tony Stark said the word, while he was hugging with Pepper?
Bruce Banner seems to be having a hard time, curled up under a blanket or when he stumbles in the snow half naked. And the most heartbreaking scene from the teaser, was at the end when we see Captain America's Shield broken, with Spader saying that "no strings on me" line at the end. I mean WOW. That's some scary sh*t!
Can't wait to see what Marvel has to comment on the trailer in the next few days, besides the fact the teaser leaked because of Hydra. Marvel sent a tweet on their account, which said: "Dammit Hydra".
To wrap this up, the trailer is AWESOME, May 2015 can't get here fast enough!
Now that the competition, DC Announced all the movies scheduled after Batman V Superman, Victoria Alonso, VP of Marvel was asked about what's cooking on their side? Are we going to see a Marvel female superhero movie soon, or not?
Gal Gadot is going to play Wonder Woman in 2017 so what the competition has to say?
“If it were up to me, it would be today." says the VP of visual effects, Victoria Alonso.
While "Scarlett Johansson is a little busy having a baby at the moment", therefore no Black Widow Movie any time soon, all the attention goes on Captain Marvel.
But is only fair to ask your opinion on this matter and see what you guys think.
What superhero female character would you want to see in her own movie? Answer the poll bellow:
Speaking of Spider Woman, remember Milo Manara Spider-Woman #1 cover? And the fact that many people were talking about the cover from an anatomical standpoint. Well, there are some cosplayers that want to prove it can be done.
Here's the original:
Is Robert Downey Jr going to make it to Iron Man 4? He recently took up some interviews with Ellen and on the Late Show with David Letterman where he seems to intentionally confuse the public about Iron Man 4. My opinion is that, he's playing with the media in order to bring attention on his recent movie called The Judge.
Robert Downey Jr stated on the Late Show: “There’s no plans for an Iron Man 4", while at Ellen he said that there "would be an Iron Man 4."
So what should we make from all that? Is there going to be or not a Iron Man 4 Movie?
"Why not?.." says David
“That’s a valid question. That’s right, like it hasn’t made enough money or something?"
"Yeah.. They don't want a couple of billion dollars?"
"Yeah.. I guess they have too much money or something."
Check out the full show below:
After a while Downey says “Just between us, no. But I’m going to do other stuff with Marvel. I’m still going to be involved with Marvel, and there’s going to be plenty of fun stuff to happen.”
My guess is that, since he said that he's going to be involved in other stuff with Marvel, his next Iron Man movie will be a team up with some of The Avengers. A collaboration with Captain America or Hulk sounds awesome, don't you think?
And since we're talking about Robert, here's something that we, Jack of all Trades brag about all the time.
He's actually wearing t-shirts from Jack of all Trades. He has wearing them on Kimmel Show (you have the video below) and just on an ordinary day while walking down the street.
Cool huh? So what do you think? Is there going to be a next Iron Man 4 movie or a team up with another member from The Avengers? State your opinion below!
