  • Disney Princesses Team Up With X-Men Superheroes In Epic Fanart Series
    With Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel under one studio, a fan’s imagination could roam free in terms of collaborations and mash-ups. One could think about almost any mash-ups as the possibilities are endless.  Some of the desired collaborations may have come to life with this artist’s mash-up series. Marcus Williams, also known as Marcus the Visual, showed off his impeccable talent and creativity by making the Marvel’s X-Men and Disney princesses team-up. In the form of digital art, Williams created his own fanart series showcasing different characters rolled into one epic bunch. The artist posts his artwork with lengthy captions, detailing how the teams were formed according to his perception. He named his series, X-Men Princesses. In his first creation, Williams explained how “it’s only natural” that some of the Disney princesses that possess magical powers would “eventually” have a crossover with the mutants. Considering that Disney now owns the rights to X-Men. He made the series as he can’t want for Disney “to do that officially”. Comic Book highlighted the artist’s creations in their recent report, picking out their favorites from the series as well. Here are some of the team-ups made by the artist: First up is Storm and Pocahontas. The team was formed due to their similarities with regard to weather. Since Storm is an “omega-level weather goddess” and Pocahontas is a “painter of colorful winds”.           View this post on Instagram                   I remember watching Frozen with my kids when it came out in theaters and saying to myself, 'so...Elsa is pretty much an ice wielding mutant'. Seeing as how Disney now owns the rights to the X-Men, it's only natural that some of the more "magically" adept Disney princesses would pull a crossover with the famed team of mutants...eventually. Well you know I can't wait for them to do that officially so... yeah... I'm dropping my team ups of X-Men & Disney Princesses with a poster collection entitled "X-Men Princesses". 1st up is none other than the Omega level weather goddess herself, Storm, and the incomparable painter of colorful winds, Pocahontas. More on the way. Peace ya'll. #MarcusTheVisual #XMen #DisneyPrincesses A post shared by Marcus Williams (@marcusthevisual) on Sep 5, 2019 at 2:15am PDT   Wolverine has teamed up with Rapunzel. As the artist calls them, the Attacker team. Wolverine is the “berserker king” and the princess is the “master of dual adamantium skillets”. The artist sees that the two have “healing factor of sorts” and that they both “swift flash metals to the face of their enemies”. Next up are the trained warriors, Mulan and Psylocke. The artist even gave a story on how the relationship between the two will progress as they go along. He mentions that the two will make a mutual agreement to “put their differences aside” seeing as Mulan was not good in following directions. Another team he formed up consists of the “King and Queen of cold”. Iceman and Elsa are seen as a pair who will grow out of their cold attitude as they show off their powers with each other. A trio team-up was next, it includes Beast, Shuri, and Bell who are “like-minded intellectuals”. As the three share a liking for literature, it wouldn’t be hard for them to get along and be a strong team. These are only a few of the artist’s outstanding work. William’s work was inventive and original and it surely was a hit to the fans as they look forward to more of his creations. You could check them out yourself and give the artist some appreciation through his handle marcusthevisual. With that said, fans could also look up the six ongoing X-Men Dawn of X series that are coming this Fall. Also Read: Marvel Looks At 80 Years From Now With Upcoming Release Of One-Shot Comics

  • Tom Holland Is Marty McFly In Back To The Future Deepfake Video
    Fans have come to love Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man. And with reports on the character no longer belonging to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans were deeply despaired. Amidst the fans’ hopes on Spider-Man’s return in MCU, user EZRyderX47 made a “deepfake” video showing Tom Holland as Marty McFly in Back to the Future. Back to the Future was released back in 1985 and was directed by Robert Zemeckis. It was the first of the franchise that is comprised of three movies. The story of McFly, a 17-year-old high school student, has been well received by millions of people over the world. The movie was considered a classic masterpiece and has been a favorite among the fans. The movie follows McFly’s journey on being accidentally sent thirty years in the past. He is guided by his close friend Doc Brown, who is an expert in time travel. The teen does not have the most pleasant of lives. He is always scolded by his principal, and has to deal with Biff, his dad’s supervisor’s bullying antics towards his father. With Marty zapped back into the past, he unintentionally gets involves in his (teenage) parents’ romance. He must try to rekindle their love back whilst dealing with (teenage) Biff.  Much like Tom Holland, Michael J. Fox, received high remarks with his performance as McFly.  Bringing these two together, a fan suggested to make a video replacing Fox as Holland. The user gladly accepted the request and delivered a well-crafted video.    The 2-minute clip shows Tom Holland as Marty McFly as he wanders around once he got sent into the past. It garnered positive reviews from the fans. Saying that they could totally see Holland as McFly in the event that the movie is remade. With that said, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man appearance has yet to be announced following the Sony and Disney deal. Also Read: Spider-Man May Return To Marvel Thanks To Apple Potentially Buying Sony

  • It's Official! John Wick's Game Debuts In October
    Following the success of the John Wick movies, Keanu Reeves has been sought after numerous roles left and right. Reeves has also signed for the fourth installment of The Matrix franchise and just recently wrapped filming for Bill & Ted Face the Music. The love for Reeves and the movies he previously participated in has always been on the high. And that admiration is going to boost much more with the release of the John Wick video game. The official John Wick game is titled John Wick Hex. It was developed by Bithell games and they recently just made an announcement on the release date for the highly-anticipated game.  John Wick Hex is an action strategy game based on the widely popular movie franchise. Fans can finally rejoice as it is available to purchase and play on PC and MAC on October 8. The game is said to have “elegantly choreographed” action set pieces, as well as effectively translating the action from the screen into an interactive game. The actions to be used should respond to the enemy’s. Henceforth, players are able to preview their pre-planned moves and see what the damage results in order to defeat the enemy.  While this movie is widely popularised because of Keanu Reeves, there are no reports with regards to reprising his role in this game yet. This is probably due to Reeve’s busy schedule, as he will be appearing in Cyberpunk 2077. Fans should not worry though, since Ian McShane and Lance Reddick will be returning with Troy Baker as the villain for the game. It would be awesome to see Reeves reprise his role in the game. But it is understandable with his tight schedule. I wouldn’t fret though since a lot of characters will be returning to the game. Making it as close to the franchise as possible. John Wick Hex will be an Epic Games store exclusive and is available to download on October 8. Also Read: Keanu Reeves Can Never Be Your Maybe in Cyberpunk 2077

  • Jared Leto Brings Back Joker Hair In New Instagram Post
    It’s only a few weeks away until we get to see Joaquin Phoenix in Todd Phillips’ Joker. Following this release are two much-anticipated DC movies. Birds of Prey which centers around Harley Quinn’s character and is supposed to be a “girl gang movie.” And the sequel for The Suicide Squad featuring the return of the characters as well as an introduction for new ones. Phillips’ Joker is seen to make an 82 million dollar debut in October and fans are hyped up on what comes next for the Clown Prince of Crime. Talks on Phoenix as Joker has been circulating the internet. Like with all the previous actors who played Joker in the past, fans keep their eye on these actors making sure they fit into the role of the villain’s insanity and madness. One particular actor remains to be in the spotlight as the Joker who has made a division among the fans. Jared Leto, who plays the iconic villain in Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Fans were intrigued with his recent Instagram post, a photo that might be considered a teaser for his return. See photo below:           View this post on Instagram                   ?

Though, he captioned the photo with only a ghost emoji.  Fans were all over this photo as his post may hint to a possible return as Joker in the upcoming movies Birds of Prey or Suicide Squad 2. He did not go further into detail with regards to his photo. Since Leto is known to post pictures on Instagram with different time periods, it is unclear whether this was a photo from 2015 (where his pink hair made its debut) or is actually a recent one.

  • Eva Green Has Ideas For Possible Villain Role In DC Universe
    New superhero movies are going to be in the works as both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Universe are cooking up quite a storm. And as fans come to know the upcoming movies that will be released in the future, a lot of speculations and reports are blowing up for casting rumors. As their anticipation grows, so does the fans’ expectation for the protagonist’s villain.    One person whose being eyed on is 300: Rise of an Empire star, Eva Green. She has been a fan-favorite for a long time now. And is well-loved by people around the world for her exceptional talent and passion for acting.    With the release of Birds of Prey’s teaser, which is apparently considered as a “segway to all the great supervillainess of the DC Universe”. This topic was brought to the actress’ attention by a fan under the user zetumusica.   “I really think @EvaGreenWeb should be Poison Ivy”, the fan adds. The Eva Green fan account seems to be providing official info for the actress as it quotes the tweet with an intriguing response, “Eva has another idea…” Eva has another idea... https://t.co/AL0or1IIer — Eva Green Web (@EvaGreenWeb) September 18, 2019 And while Green is rumored to be Doctor Strange’s foe as Nightmare, it still isn’t clear on who Green would likely play in. Information with regards to Green joining MCU or DCU hasn’t even been confirmed yet. Since Eva Green is talented and is one of the few actresses people would like to see on screen as a villain, the world is her oyster. Considering that Poison Ivy is off the list, Green could most likely appear in a movie under the Marvel Cinematic Universe with only A Patriot in the works. It looks like she would be available just in time to film for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which is supposed to commence shooting sometime around 2020. With that said, it’s also an option for Green to be a villain under DC as the account specifically responded to a tweet regarding the future female villains for DCU. Personally, I would like to see Eva Green as a villain. Whether she is under DCU or MCU, I’m sure the actress would be an effective villain for the character she will be given. The Suicide Squad will be released on August 6, 2021, while Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is on May 7, 2021. Also Read: Marvel Reportedly Offering Wolverine Role Back To Hugh Jackman
