Sigourney Weaver can actually do no wrong.

Okay so like most people, I have come to love and hate some of the Marvel Netflix shows. Both seasons of Daredevil were fantastic. I thought the first 7 episodes of Luke Cage were again just fantastic. Jessica Jones was okay, and I couldn’t really get into Iron Fist. Well now they are all coming together to form a super group. That’s right, the team up no one asked for, but after Daredevil season one everyone wanted. All around I think Netflix does a great job with these shows, they are all unique in their own way, and it distances itself from the MCU the best it can. Let’s face it we will never see any of these characters in an MCU movie and that’s okay in my opinion. These shows are their own thing; it’s Marvel’s way to show their gritty side.

One thing is for sure; man do these shows like hallway fight scenes. I think they just put them in there now just to please us fans, but they work so well. This trailer was pretty awesome. It was like a mini movie if you ask me. I’ll say this; the chemistry between the four heroes seems real. I think these four people really do like each other, and I mean that outside of work. They appear to be friends in real life, and I think that will go along way for the shows success. It looks like everyone is having fun, and enjoying their time together. We see in the trailer that maybe we will have a Jones/Daredevil team up and an Iron Fist/Luke Cage team up at the start. They will obviously all come together but I like the idea of mixing up the foursome and breaking it down into two separate teams. I’m curious to see them maybe go toe-to-toe with one another, which I’m sure we will see plenty of in the first few episodes. Their chemistry and teamwork seem to be on the right page and that’s a great start for this show.

I’m curious to know more about Sigourney Weaver and her character. She is playing the villain and since all of our heroes are pretty tough to beat just singlehandedly, I don’ t want to know what it’s going to take in order to defeat them all at once. I’m sure she will just be the puppet-master, the person pulling all the strings but it would be pretty awesome to see her throw down against The Defenders. Who knows and only time will tell, but I hope there’s a really good villain, because one thing I have loved from the Marvel shows has been the baddies. They do a better job at creating appealing, a well-rounded villain, unlike the MCU, so lets hope that trend continues. Sigourney has been known to be a badass throughout her entire career, so maybe she’s got one last ass kicking left in her. Known as Alexandra she is a brand new villain created for the show, which in my mind makes this even better. She doesn’t have to worry about pleasing fans and doing a character justice. She can simply just act this part out and create something new and unique for all us fan boys to enjoy.

I’m excited for this show what can I say? I hope they use all the best stuff from each individual show and make one awesome extravaganza. Each show was special in its own way, and they need to pull all of those things from each show and combine it to make this show the best it can possibly be. We know all these shows are getting seasons 2 and 3, and we are even getting a Punisher show, who knows maybe he will turn up in this. We get a glimpse of Elektra in this trailer, so nothing is out of play. Actually a Punisher vs. Elektra showdown would be pretty awesome to see, now that I think about it. The stakes are going to be high for The Defenders, and I have a feeling somehow is going to die; my guess would be Claire or Stick. Only time will tell, can’t wait for this to drop!

Let’s Talk About That ‘Dark Tower’ Trailer 

Matthew McConaughey honestly looks to be the nicest villain in movie history.

(SONY)
The Dark Tower, something I really know nothing about. I know it’s based off the much beloved Stephen King novel. I know it’s coming out August 4th this summer and I know it stars a couple of real gems in McConaughey and Idris Elba. So when the trailer popped up online this morning I was pleasantly surprised at what I saw. After reading some of the Youtube comments, it looks like the books snobs will be out in full force for this one.

Idris Elba is some sort of gunslinger and it’s up to him to save both his world and ours. McConaughey looks to be playing “The Man In Black” who is trying to destroy both worlds. Honestly from what I saw from this trailer the action looks to be pretty dope. They really came up with some unique ways to reload your gun, and this being based off a Stephen King novel I expect a great story full of twists and turns. I’ve always felt that Idris Elba hasn’t got his just dessert yet, he’s such a talented actor, but hasn’t really been the lead in a big Hollywood blockbuster. Well this looks to be his chance, and I couldn’t be happier for the guy. I just hope this doesn’t turn out to be like The Lone Ranger.
Now for McConaughey. I’m not sure if I’m buying him as a bad dude. Like he’s never done that before and it just seems off putting. Mostly because he didn’t really change for it, he’s still talking like he always does, and I just wish either his voice would have been different or his appearance. Because when I saw this movie was coming out I didn’t know he was going to play the films baddie until I saw the trailer. So hopefully the man proves me wrong, it’s not like the man can’t act. So PROVE ME WRONG MATTHEW.
All in all this movie looks cool and it seems like a cool new universe to be a part of. With a stellar cast and some cool looking visuals I can get on board with this. It could be the last good movie of the Summer with an August release date. In the mean time I might get my hands on the book so I can march with those book snobs come August!
