Jason Moma Defends Justice League

Published

on

Justice League is in theaters it has fans and critics of the DCEU spilt. The DC superhero movie fell short of domestic boxoffice projections bringing in $94 million over the weekend. A large part of that can be attributed to the low scores critics. But Justice League star Jason Moma is not letting that impact his views of the film.

“I try to stay the f- away from what people say. “Some of my friends said, ‘Justice League isn’t doing well’ and it kind of bummed me out. But I didn’t want to look it up. I don’t want to look up the bad and the negativity. I don’t think that’s useful; it doesn’t help.”

“I’ve seen [Justice League] twice,” Momoa says. “I loved it the second time even more. I’m actually going to watch it again with my kids and my godchild. I’m going to see it with the perfect crowd of people — a regular crowd instead of at a premiere. So I’m excited. You can’t get into the whole ‘why this, why that.’

Thanks to Zac Synder, Moma’s Aquaman man is gladiator king instead of walking punch line.  But some fans were upset that Aquaman’s backstory were cut from the film. But Momoa had a counter for that too.

“The challenging part is [the Justice League story] is only about a weekend in Author Curry’s life. [Fans] might be like, ‘Why is he that grumpy? Why’s he hiding up there?’ We had it all planned out. A lot of things got cut. But it’s not my movie. It’s a huge movie introducing three new characters, and for myself and The Flash and Cyborg, there was a lot that was there we just couldn’t get in. It could have been two movies. We had some stuff with Willem Dafoe. The whole Atlantean part, about me being this reluctant king. There was no need for it because you’re going to see it in Aquaman. It’s not an Aquaman movie, it’s a Justice League movie.”

New Venom Trailer Actually Shows Off Venom

Published

on

Sony has released the official Venom trailer and this one actually has Venom. The first teaser trailer was Tom Hardy the movie, which had some fans upset the studio would even release a trailer without Venom.

Most people still have a sour taste in their mouth from the Sam Rami version of one of Marvel’s best anti-heroes. The trailer shows gives fans an updated origin for the character.  But more so promises to deliver a Venom worth watching.

 

Ruben Fleischer’s film will pull from one of the 90’s story arcs that featured Venom facing off against mercenaries. The Lethal Protector story had Eddie Brock leaving New York for San Francisco. Fans of the 90’s might have fond memories of the 1993 mini-series Venom: Lethal Protector. It was set sometime after Carnage debuted in Amazing Spider-Man, where the villain was turned into an anti-hero. Venom soon made peace with the wallcrawler and moved to San Francisco, where he became the “lethal protector” of the city.

Venom producer Matthew Tolmach spoke about his excitement of having Tom Hardy play the role of Eddie Brook.

“You know, Tom… it’s like a masterclass watching him act every day and he’s such a risk taker and he loved this character. From the day that we first met with him, my partner Avi Arad and I… we found someone who just believed in this character entirely and yet every day pushes it to a place that us mere mortals would never expect it to go.”

Venom starring Tom Hardy comes to theaters October 5th, 2018.

The Rockets Scored 50 Points In Third Quarter

The Houston Rockets took a game 4 win against the Timberwolves after the team exploded for 50 points in the third quarter.

Houston stars James Harden and Chris Paul combined for 37 points in the quarter.

Harden had 22 points on 7-of-10 shooting in the quarter. That set a franchise record for points in a quarter, breaking Hakeem Olajuwon’s mark of 18 set against the Utah Jazz on May 5, 1995.

“We just got hot,” said Paul, who had 15 points on 4-of-6 shooting in the third quarter and 25 points on 9-of-17 shooting in the game. “Guys started making shots. We talked going into the game about being aggressive, and I think we all just tried to do that.”

For Chris Paul, it was more about the Rockets defense not their offense.

“Obviously everybody will look at the 50 points that we scored in the quarter, but it was our defense,” Paul said. “We finally started getting them to take tough shots, we were getting rebounds and we’re tough in transition. You’ve got James coming downhill, myself and the way we’ve got the court spaced with shooters is big. That really turned it up for us.”

Marvel’s Phase 4 is on a lot of fans minds. The MCU is expanding but Marvel is keeping their plans locked up.  Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige sat down with ComicBook.com this weekend and revealed that Nova maybe one of new heroes fans will get to see on the big screen.

“Nova is—if we have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more immediate potential, Nova is on that board,” he said. “Because of the connection to the Guardians universe, because there are more than one examples to pull from in the comics that are interesting. And you’re absolutely right, he was in the earliest drafts of the [Guardians of the Galaxy].”

Feige didn’t get specific about the timetable of a Nova appearance and admitted that they’re having difficulty choosing which of the many characters to highlight next. “We’re figuring those things out,” he explained. “It is a very unique embarrassment of riches right now because there are so many of the characters that audiences are clamoring to see more. The question is how do we show them all?”
