NIGHTCRAWLER is getting cancelled?? Oh No! It was actually better than I expected :(
It's nasty how solos that come out 1 issue per month compare to staple team books that come out twice a month. How is this acceptable? I dropped XX-men when Storm came out. That title got stale so fast after wood left. And I will be devastated if Storm is cancelled just after only 2ish tpb.
It will always kill me how sales for mainstream yet poorly written stories can do so well, yet stories that are rich, quality and filled with Marvel history just fall to the wasteside. It's terrible we are even having this discussion.
I only want Spider-man if he will appear in Captain America's Civil war film-- If not, I don't really care.
As for Kat Gram as Storm-- She wasn't my first, second, third, or fourth pick for Storm. But I am willing to give her a chance.
Here is my honest opinion of her at the moment. She looks like Halle-Storm Jr. And she bores me on Vampire Diaries with her mousy mannerisms. I feel like she needs to a full-on over the top drag queen Storm hair and presence or a badass mohawk to capture my attention. I don't like it when Storm is portrayed as a cheery aunty character. We need a Angela Bassett-- Michonne kind og woman with depth to knock it out of the park. Storm is BOSS-Material. Fox has some of the most beloved characters in all comic history yet they sometimes treat them like tokens and in the film for-- just because.
New actors are in and out for Storm, Spidey, and Dr. Strange.
1. Halle Berry is passing the tourch to Kat Gram, who is in the running to play Storm in X-men Apocalypse. Which COULD would. She looks like a a younger version of Storm from the original trilogy. (A strike unfortunately Lupita had against her. :( ) I can't give a real opionion about her since I haven't seen much aside from trailers, commercials, and music videos with her. I just hope she can bring that quiet strength Michonne brings in The Walking Dead to Storm-- AND KAT, YOU WOULD DO EVERYONE A SOLID IF YOU GET STORM'S VOICE AND MANNERISMS RIGHT!
2. Benedict Cumberbatch is confirmed to play Dr. Strange. A LOT OF LOVE AND HATE FROM THE FANS ON THIS ONE. I am happy Benedict will play the sorcerer supreme. He was great in Star Trek into the darkness as Khan.
3. Sources say, Marvel and Sony had a meeting about what to do with Spider-man and the current rumor is Andrew Garfield (even though he is contracted for at least one more film.) is out and Marvel wants to make an adult Spider-man film (ANOTHER SPIDER-MAN REBOOT-- WHY?? --SHOOT ME NOW!) . Sources say Garfield and/or his representative didn't show up for this meeting. And apparently Sony & Marvel don't want to support him anymore due to the incident where he stood up a child he was supposed to visit while representing Spider-man. I don't know if all this is true-- and I don't even know what to think. I liked Andrew a lot (he's sexy) but I am super bummed out if this is true! Right now, I feel like Tyra Banks on that episode of America's Next Top Model
1) For everyone 'not caring' why bother posting here?? 2) For everyone talking about Storm being bisexual as if it may impact her character negatively. I made this topic because the idea of her sexuality has been debated on comicvine for as long as I could remember. +Storm's most memorable stories always focus on her relationships. There is a reason why Storm and Yukio have such a ambiguous dynamic that the fans go crazy for. If their relationship was a clear cut straight one, Yukio would be no different than Psylocke in relation to Storm-- maybe even less. 3) Remember when everyone was hellbent on Psylocke not being bi? Oh wait-- then she slept with Cluster. Do you really need a sex scene to confirm sexuality??? 4) Almost every adventure Storm has with Yukio had very romantic scenes. Ex: constant thoughts of one another, touching each other's faces, drastic wardrobe change (which for the time could have been precised as lesbian-like.), going to S&M clubs together with Yukio, in a black panther story, the X-men where paired together as couples: Kitty & Collosus, Cyclops & Emma, yet Storm was paired with Yukio...
Lastly, why is it EVERYTIME there is ANOTHER nod to Storm's sexuality-- half of comic-vine goes in denial??? Storm has always been huge in the gay community. (For reason I do not know why, but we love her anyways.) Why is this so alarming news? Read your 80s and 90s arcs and it's really not a surprise
