5 Questions – Comics

Are there any characters you’d like to see added to the MCU Netflix series.

Well, I’ve stated many times that I’d like to see Dr. Anthony Druid added to the MCU at some point so that’s my most obvious answer. With the Iron Fist series, I think that it would be easy for characters like Shang-Chi, The Sons of The Tiger and maybe even The White Tiger (Hector Ayala) to be added to the mix. And since the “Defenders” name is being used, how about Kyle Richmond, aka “The Nighthawk” or even Isaac Christians, aka “The Gargoyle”, two prominent members of the Defenders from the comics. Eric Simon Payne, aka “The Devil Slayer” would be a good character to look into as well.

If you could do a crossover between a DCU show and a MCU show, what shows would you use and how would you make it work.

I’d have Flash and maybe Cisco do a jump between parallel Earth’s, such as they did in the “Crisis on Earth X” adventure, but instead of going to Earth 2 or wherever they’re intending to head, they end up in the MCU and maybe encounter Tony Stark, aka Iron Man and The Avengers. Of course, this would have to be after the Infinity War stuff ends, but Flash and friends are trapped in the MCU and Tony and the other Avengers fight them at first and then help them get back to their own world. Of course it would be more detailed than that, but that’s the gist of it.

Are you excited about the movie, “Venom”?

I should be, but strangely enough, I’m not. I’ll watch it hopefully within the next week or so and maybe my opinion will change, but I’m sensing a bit of DC-Movie-Itis here where the movie looks good from the trailers, but ends up being a confusing and oingo-boingo style mess. I hope I’m wrong, but there’s something about it that is setting my Spidey-sense off in warning me of a bad movie. We’ll see though.

If the MCU was to make a movie based around a bad guy, who should they use?

Easy answers would be either Dr. Doom or Magneto. Both men has that noble aspect and hero quality about them, yet their actions brand them villains. Another good choice would be Wilson Fisk, aka The Kingpin. How did he become the Kingpin of Crime? What’s the backstory? He’s a complex character with a lot of depth and would make a great topic for a side-movie.

Should the existing X-Men / Fantastic Four movies be used as the backstory for the characters when they’re reintroduced to the MCU or should Disney / Marvel start fresh and pretend the previous movies don’t exist?

Forget about the previous movies. Most of them sucked anyhow. Just wipe the slate clean and start fresh. There are so many great characters in the X-Men and so many ways to take things. Same goes for the Fantastic Four. Just let the only limitation be imagination and maybe some comic continuity and forget the other movies ever happened. That’s the best way for Disney and the MCU people to handle things.

And there you go. Thoughts, questions and any comments are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, stay cool and go read a comic. You’ll be glad you did. Take care and I’ll catch you later.
