The American dream is a notion–or well promise–to all people within in our country of peace, safety, justice and most of all equality. However, if you are a Black Man there are time and situations when that notion might as well be a fantasy. Hamilton star Daveed Diggs definitely has this understand down to science as he tackles police brutality and injustice in his new film, Blindspotting!

Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casa as Collin and Miles in “Blindspotting”

Blindspotting centers on Collin (Daveed Diggs), an ex-con adjusting to life outside of prison–and with limited freedom–thanks to probation and a legal curfew at his halfway home. He passes his few remaining days focusing on work, while working alongside his eccentric best friend Miles (Rafael Casal). Collin’s attempts to keep his head low and stay out of trouble hit a snag when he witnesses an officer gun down an unarmed Black Man. He does his best to put it behind him but Miles’ antics combined with his growing PTSD began to haunt him like none other. Colin’s crisis of conscience and rage all climaxes to an event you will never see coming!

This film deserves every award on the books! We are not surprised that Daveed is amazing in this film. Anything he touches is GOLD. Even more surprising is that he wrote this moving film with Rafael. Blindspotting is a movie you will laugh, cry, and have to watch again and again because it is just that deep. As a Black Man, or even a person of color in this country, you will relate to Colin and his shortcomings.

Honestly, we need more films–mainstream and independent–to tackle this topic. Indeed, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was right, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Be sure you catch Blindspotting anywhere it can be found. Daveed and Rafael, kudos, kudos, and KUDOS!

Warner Bros. Announces “Plastic Man” Movie in The Works!

Don’t hold your breath if you were waiting for the superhero movie genre to die down anytime soon. More and more superheroes are flooding the Big Screen and we could not be happier. The newest superhero to now get the movie works is none other than DC Comics’ Plastic Man! Patrick “Eel” O’Brian, aka Plastic Man was a criminal until he was shot and left for dead by the gang he ran with. Somehow a mysterious chemical made it into his wound granting him the ability to shape-shift and stretch into almost any shape he can imagine.

Plastic Man definitely is a popular hero, being a member of the Justice League and for awhile had his own cartoon series. The film will be written by Amanda Idoko, an up and coming writer in the film industry. She has worked as a staff writer on The Mayor,  a short-lived ABC series starring Brandon Michael Hall as a hip-hop artist who becomes the mayor of his city. There is no news on what Amanda’s take on the character will be but it is expected to be an action-comedic piece in line with the nature of the character and his rather silly overtones.

We have to say we are really glad Warner Bros./DC Comics is moving towards expanding the DC Cinematic Universe with new heroes. There is another Justice League movie set in the next few years and we may see an expanded line up if characters like Shazam, Batgirl, Supergirl, and Plastic Man join Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. They will definitely need the help if they are going after Darkseid (think Marvel’s Thanos, but bigger, gray, more evil, and with eye beams that can disintegrate anything)!

This first trailer for the film is dark and bleak, as you would expect it to be from heroes are now grieving and desperate. Thanos handed them their first true defeat and now they are out for his blood. Iron Man is adrift in space and Cap is rounding up forces for revenge! We love the darker outlook, it makes us wonder just what it will take for our heroes to defeat Thanos and restore the universe to some sort of order. Hawkeye’s return and his somber expression tells us his family did not survive, and there are so many questions we have about how Ant-Man managed to get out of the Quantum Dimension? When we last saw him in the post-credits of Ant-Man and The Wasp he was left stranded there when Janet Van Dyne, Hope Van Dyne (Wasp), and Hank Pym were all wiped out in Thanos’s cosmic-level genocide.

avengers endgameAll we know is that Captain Marvel is expected to join their ranks in this film, and perhaps we will see a few more surprising heroes come to the forefront. We really wish they would have used Netflix’s Marvel heroes, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Daredevil as backup to boost the ranks…Still we are stoked for this film. It’s time for some avenging–one more time! Avengers Assemble!

You be sure to catch all the action April 26, 2018! Happy viewing!

Marvel and DC Comics definitely hold a monopoly on the superhero film genre, but that does not mean a few of our favorite video game characters can’t join the fray. Apparently the popular video game company, Capcom, has announced one if its greatest heroes, Mega Man, is getting his own live action film!

Mega Man, as you may already know is a mostly blue robot created by philanthropic scientist, Dr. Wiley to help and benefit mankind peacefully. However, when Dr. Light’s former partner, Dr. Wiley, decides to use their robot creations in an attempt to take over the world, the robot that would become Mega Man is reformatted to become the heroic defender of humanity we know and love today.

There is no casting news on the film yet as it is in early development. We are very excited to see Mega Man to go the live action route. The special effects are going to be amazing; and getting to possibly see characters like Rush, Roll, Proto Man, Cutman, and Gutsman, is making us relive our childhoods. Mega Man’s success could even give way to a Capcom Cinematic Universe, meaning the return of franchises like Street Fighter to the big screen, and the debut of still others like Dark Stalkers! We will keep you posted as more Mega Man news as it becomes available!
