Oh no! - it's another Marvel movies site relocation!!

Considering that this here blog about the upcoming Marvel movies is only a few months old, what I am about to say here probably will seem rather self centered and inpulsive, yet I have to say it:  this is likely the last post that I will be making to this site.

  What?  Seriously? Already?

  Yeah, already.  When I made the decision to stop posting to my previous Captain America movie blog, it was because I had decided to focus on the overall subject of the future Marvel movies, instead of just the single movie franchises/projects individually with separate sites. Of course that is why we ended up here, right? That should have been that, so to speak; it should have been enough to be here and to carry on posting about Cap, Shellhead and any other Marvel movie character that strikes my fancy, however, soon after launching this new site I realized that starting a new blogger blog on a broader scope was not enough: I realized that I was also ready to move on to going the self-hosted route with my site and to try having a Marvel movies site that did not exist at the whim of a free blog provider.  At the same time, I have seen enough of the Wordpress platform to realize that it offers some freedom of choice that I would like to try for myself, so considering these two facts, it seemed that the answer or solution to my quandary would be to take the plunge and try a self hosted site.  Since in my mind I have decide that at some point this is going to happen, I figured that it would be better to do this sooner rather than later even thought this site was in its most fledgling of stages.  I guess this just means that anyone who followed me over here from my Captain America Movie Update site will have the chance to keep playing 'follow the blogger', lol.  Since the focus of the new(est) site will be the same as here, there should be no jarring differences, except for a minor change of the title, from Marvel Zombie Movie Patrol, to Marvel Movies Zombie Patrol. (I know, I am weak and totally indecisive) 

  Okay, I am done with new site announcements for a looong time!  If you are still with me, the new site can be found at: http://marvelmovieszombiepatrol.com/  There you will find me prattling on about anything and everything to do with the Captain America movie and the other upcoming Marvel movies, and I promise that I will be staying there for a while...


Hoping that Marvel's future big guns will end up looking like a million dollars...

We seem to be getting close to the point when the upcoming Marvel movies, the future film projects, will be at the stage where they are ready to release teasers about what the main characters costumes will look like; Movies such as the upcoming Captain America movie and upcoming Thor movie will at some point be trying to increase fan interest in and the buzz level of these projects by giving us some official details about their main characters costumes. Right now we appear to already have some unofficial design info floating around that was supposedly leaked by someone linked with the studio and which was subsequently used as aguide to come up with some very intriguing character sketches of both the Captain America costume nd the Thor costume. Both are very well rendered and both could very well end up being quite close to the final version that we will see up on the big screen this time next year.

These design sketches have got me thinking. After giving it some thought, I have to say that for as much as I like the Thor outfitand the way it seems to suit the character from the comics, I am equally unexcited over what I have so far seen from the fan sketches for the supposed Captain America costume. The Thor outfit is faithful to the feel of the comic and has even incorporated some of the more recent costume changes to have been introduced into the regular book. Similarly, I feel that the Cap costume looks like it has attempted to incorporate (on some level)the more recent look to the Captain America costume, a look which has not particularly received a rousing positive reaction from fans over the few years of its existence. It has not been made clear to me yet if the Cap sketches are based on the look of his costume during the modern era portion of his story (ie the part of the movie that could be set in modern day) or if it is in fact supposed to be the look of the costume for the period portion of the drams set during WW II. If it is to be the latter, then it has way too much of a modern look and feel to it to be believable for a Second World War outfit.

So far, Marvel has got it right over all; the decisions that the studio has gone with for the look of its principle characters has mnostly paid off - I am obviously not the only one who loved the look of the Iron Man armor in the last two IM movies, right? I hope Marvel chooses the look of its future cornerstone movies well. We all know that they can do it, they have done it well before. Here's hoping that they keep their batting average up in the near future...
