Welcome back friends and new comers alike! Hope you are all having an amazing week. Here on the o’playground we have been having a ball. With Captain America: The Winter Soldier coming out and all the questions left and all the pieces finally put together, it been fun.
But before we get to all that we would like to take a minute a pay our respects to the Ultimate Warrior. I know some of you may not have grown up with wrestling or like it at all but for me, they were my first superheros. This one especially. I always loved watching him and listening to him. He was a great wrestler and like a said, to me a superhero. He will be missed.
So this week we bring you a purely Marvel IIR. I will warn you here… If you have not seen WS (winter soldier) then you may not want to read this section… just scroll down till you see…… (make sure to check out the nerd wife review of the movie here)
Now for those of you who have to just can not wait to hear all about it let’s get down to it!
The hardest choice is where to start. In the Avengers we see Nick Fury and s.h.e.i.l.d. bring the heros together and fight the alien invasion threatening earth. In all the aftermath of that Iron Man is left questioning everything, Thor is left to fight off the dark elves (in fact the events here didn’t seem to bother
him at all. After all he is the only one used to this kinda thing), Banner is no where to be found (except being mentioned by Arnim Zola during WS along with Steven Strange), and last is Cap. The Captain finds himself doing the same old song and dance. Being the good soldier and taking his orders.
Yada yada yada, we fins ourselves without s.h.e.i.l.d. now. This leaves Cap wondering about his friend Bucky (who we all know is alive and now knows who he is). Add to this the show Agents of S.h.e.i.l.d. and we have a connected universe in cinema that has never been seen.
“The miricles” at the end of WS (being Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch) are going to come into play thanks to Baron Von Strucker and the mind gem on Loki’s staff. Leaving the twins under his control, but to what end? Surely they will not just rehash the same thing from the first movie and have them fight the Avengers just to turn and be good guys later, just like Hawkeye. And how would one control the Scarlet Witch with that? Is it that powerful? (My thoughts at least.)
That brings us to the gems… so far (at least fully introduced) we have seen 3 gems. The teseract, the ether, and the mind gem. (The fourth and maybe more sure to come about in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.) That would leave 3 more for Thanos to get a hold of to bring this all to a head in Avengers 3.
Let’s step back and look at the GotG movie first. We saw the collector in the end credits of Thor 2. With him “collecting” these and seeming kinda shifty about it, leads me to believe that he is working with Thanos. (Plus the collector has never really been the one for power)
But being an eternal why would he do that… unless they stay true to the comics and he is trying to get his brother (the game master) back. Will we see the Game Master, Thanos (yes), and Death in gotg? I hope so.
And as stated above this all is connected on one level or another. So what about the short film “Hail to the King” where the real Mandarin sends his regards to the fake actor… will the 10 rings have anything to do with the infinity gems?
All of this leads us to the Avengers 2… but what about after?
With Antman coming, Thor 3, Captain America 3, and GotG 2. This leaves us with a huge area to cover and some surprises that I think will blow people’s mind.
Here are a few of our predictions…
1. Cap will die in Captain America 3 and leave Bucky to take his place.
2. In gotg 2 we will see the kree hero Captain Marvel and that will lead us to Ms. Marvel.
3. The twins will be nothing more than the product MN of genetic manipulation
4. Captain America 3 will blow the new Man of Steel movie out of the water… easily
Now… I know this was a lot of information so take it in… reread it and then let us know what you thought below! Have any predictions that we missed? Think we got it wrong? Tell us!
Well guys and gals today we have the privilege of talking with a talented coslayer yet again. She goes by Cosplay Butterfly and today she’s answering 5 questions just for us!
Awesome! well here are the questions and i hope you enjoy them!
1)If you had to pick one… a freezing cold winter or a blistering hot summer?
Blistering hot Summer!!!! All the way! I have very thick and curly hair, so it really goes wild in the humidity but I’d rather put up with that than be freezing cold. I am such a wimp when it comes to cool temperatures. When I went to Mexico two years ago I had to wear sweaters at night while everyone else was in their summer clothing, because I found it to be cold. I am almost constantly cold, and really can’t stand it haha!
2)What was the last video game you beat all the way through?
The last video game I beat all the way through…Man, does this include Pokemon Y for the DS3? Hahahha! I would have to say Mario Bros. for the Super Nintendo XD I enjoy playing games but have a really hard time with actually sticking to them before I become bored. So I just play different ones whenever and never really end up finishing them. Or I hang out with friends and we take turns playing through them together. If that is the case then it would have been either Dark Souls or Catherine. : p
3)Who is your favorite comic book villian?
My favorite comic book villain would have to have been Emma Frost when she was the White Queen of the Hellfire Club from back in the 80’s… Surprise!
4)what is the most uncomfortable cosplay costume you wear?
The most uncomfortable cosplay costume that I wear would have to beeeeee none of them hahaha! Most of my costumes are made from Spandex and are actually quite comfortable, and I don’t have any problems with showing skin so that doesn’t bother me at all. Maybe my new White Queen costume, because it involves a corset. And every lady knows that real corsets are made for high fashion torture.
5)What are your plans for the rest of the 2014?
My plans for the rest of 2014 include going into full time school. So that is actually going to be taking up most of my time seeing as it is a 2 year course condensed into 26 weeks. Other than that and work it will definitely be cosplay. I’m going to attending Anime North and Toronto Fan Expo definitely. Although I aspire to go to more conventions it will depend entirely on my school schedule and finances.
