Here’s the rest of last week…

4-6_feb

Arrow (Uprising):

ArrowUprising-640x426

Oliver Queen finally made it back to Starling City, our favorite team finally got rid of Brick in the Glades and a weird alliance was formed between Oliver and Malcolm Merlyn.

The only thing I can say about this episode it that it really let me down… man, this small “trilogy” deserved a better ending.

First thing, what’s up with the timeline on this episode?! How far is Oliver? Because he manages to get there (in suit) at about the same time that all the others get there… weird.

I love Sin, I think that she was a great carather to have around for Sara, because it grounded her, I liked that she was the one to tell Lance that the Canary is not Sara, but doesn’t she know that Roy is the guy in the red suit?

Speaking of Roy/Arsenal, at least Lance knows who he is… Lance knows, Thea knows… how exactly don’t they know that Oliver is the one in green?

WTF?! So, Diggle is second on communications and not on the field? What’s up with that?! He’s better than Laurel any day of the week.

Why get Wildcat back?! So they could kill him?! Or almost kill him… not sure what happened there…

I love Tatsu, that said, she could just have come with Oliver to Starling and helped him do what he needs to do… she has mad skills.

Do we talk about Malcolm’s wig…?!?!?!?

When the Arrow got to the Glades, Team Arrow was there, right? So how come they watch his speech from the Arrow cave? And that’s all the reaction we get? How about some tears people?

I get why Oliver made a deal with Merlyn, what I don’t get is why Felicity (who is such a smart woman) didn’t even gave him a chance to explain the reality of the situation. I’m not saying that she doesn’t have her reasons to not jump into his arms – although her justification did not justify it – I’m saying that one thing doesn’t have anything to do with the other. So, she dreamed things could be different between them, ok, nobody said they couldn’t, maybe she should have let the guy explain that he doesn’t want to be dead, he doesn’t want to see his family and friends dead with him… just saying…

That said, I still love Felicity, obviously, but she needs to chill.

    

Criminal Minds (Hero Worship):

I love any episode that is Reid related. But please tell me that Dylan Einstein, the Forensic specialist will be making a return? Please… if she returns into Reid’s arms, I won’t complaint…

  

Law & Order: SVU (Decaying Morality):

Finally got my SVU in day and this episode is seriously messed up…

   

Baby Daddy (Over My Dead Bonnie):

baby_daddy_watch_first_s4_ep6_1907463093

Funny as usual, but I was beginning to wonder how much longer they would drag us through the potential something between Riley and Danny, while Ben was pretty much on to it. This was the episode, a heartbroken Ben finally broke up with his girlfriend, because she made his brother more of a priority than him… wow… Ben is usually the guy who’s unaware of stuff, but in this he was spot on… poor guy. And Riley?! Her defense was “I’ve been in love with you so long that I never thought about my feelings for Danny”… outch!

    

The Big Bang Theory (The Troll Manifestation):

The Troll Manifestation

That was a surprise. Throughout the whole episode I thought it would be one of Sheldon’s nemesis, or Wil Wheton messing with him, but it turned out to be the great Stephen Hawking! WOW!

I would kill for Sheldon’s mad ability of writing and publishing a paper overnight… kill I say!

Also, Amy’s fanfiction!!! OMG!!! We will never unsee that!

Spider-Man is coming to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe!

This is a great piece of news to wake up to! After a long negotiation, Marvel has announced yesterday that they reached an agreement with Sony that will allow Spider-Man to come to the MCU.

As Marvel announced, Spidey will be making an appearance within the MCU and then he’ll get his own solo movie, coming out July 28, 2017, and it will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal (Sony). That said, the Spider-Man franchise is not leaving Sony, but if you can’t beat them, join them, and that’s what Sony is doing with this one. You can see the full announcement, made in the Marvel’s website, below.

Ah, they will also incorporate some MCU carathers into the Spidey movie.

When this was announced, the first thought is that Spidey will probably make his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War, the Cap 3 is looking more and more like Avengers 2.5.

My second thought is that it won’t be with Andrew Garfield (as The Wrap confirmed) but I do hope they won’t recast Peter Parker.

I don’t want to see a 3rd actor being Parker in 10 years! It would be a great opportunity to introduce the new Spidey, Miles Morales, to the movie universe, right?!

“Marvel’s Kevin Feige to Produce Next Installment of the Spider-Man Franchise with Amy Pascal

(Culver City, California, and Burbank, California February 09, 2015) – Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios announced today that Sony is bringing Marvel into the amazing world of Spider-Man. 

Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger. Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films.

Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films.

The new relationship follows a decade of speculation among fans about whether Spider-Man – who has always been an integral and important part of the larger Marvel Universe in the comic books – could become part of the Marvel Universe on the big screen. Spider-Man has more than 50 years of history in Marvel’s world, and with this deal, fans will be able to experience Spider-Man taking his rightful place among other Super Heroes in the MCU.

Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company said: “Spider-Man is one of Marvel’s great characters, beloved around the world. We’re thrilled to work with Sony Pictures to bring the iconic web-slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which opens up fantastic new opportunities for storytelling and franchise building.”

“We always want to collaborate with the best and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy, who helped orchestrate this deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of Spider-Man,” said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment. “This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans.”

“Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios share a love for the characters in the Spider-Man universe and have a long, successful history of working together. This new level of collaboration is the perfect way to take Peter Parker’s story into the future,” added Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.

“I am thrilled to team with my friends at Sony Pictures along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man movie,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. “Amy has been deeply involved in the realization on film of one of the world’s most beloved characters. Marvel’s involvement will hopefully deliver the creative continuity and authenticity that fans demand from the MCU. I am equally excited for the opportunity to have Spider-Man appear in the MCU, something which both we at Marvel, and fans alike, have been looking forward to for years.”

Spider-Man, embraced all over the world, is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide.”
