C2E2 Day Two!!!

Day two was another day of excitement. The place was jammed packed,and had a record total of people for the con. The entire day was very shoulder to shoulder, but there were so many more crazy cosplayers for Saturday. There was even a DJ booth were cosplayers gathered and danced around like crazy. 

I started a little bit more of my comic book hunt Saturday, but sadly did not get very lucky in my searches. I was looking for the comic Warewolf by Night #32 (First appearance of Moon Knight) for my dad because of a bet we made years ago.  The context of the bet was I bet him that the Cubs would not win a world series in the next 5 years (Bet made in 2013)… If I win he owed me Amazing Spider-Man #13 (First Appearance of Mysterio). Since he won though… I owe him Warewolf by Night #32… I wanted to make sure to find him a high enough grade book, so it was a lot of fun going on the hunt for this book. Sadly I only found copies around a 7.0, 8.0 at best… Where I’m looking for a 9.2+, so there goes about 1200$… I’m sure I will acquire this book soon enough hopefully at Wizard World in August! 

All around I was shocked that there were not a lot of comic book vendors. This was probably the least I’ve seen at any con. The amounts of artists and little toys and statues at this con was overwhelming. All were incredible but I wish there were many more comic vendors! Hopefully you had a good time at C2E2 if you also had the privilege to go!

C2E2 Hype!!!

This weekend is one of the most exciting events for all nerds in Illinois! It’s time for C2E2! This will be my fifth year in a row attending the event, and I am even more excited then ever. Marvel will finally be making a return to the event, so it will be great to possibly see any sort of teaers for upcoming projects of Marvel (please give a little preview of Defenders!) A couple years back when Gotham wqs coming out they aited the first episode for all attendees of the event to get an opportunity to watch. After the great success of the preview Supergirl did the same thing!

Other than any movie and TV excitement I am really hoping that their is a booth where I can get my hands on Injustice 2 somewhere at the con. It was really awesome that Mortal Kombat X was playable early at C2E2 they it dropped, so let’s hope that Injustice 2 gets the same love! I am also in a big debate on what to spend my money on this year… Filling in the holes of my amazing Spider-Man collection comics… Or some incredible art pieces in artist alley..??? The dicisions are so difficult! 

Make sure to keep checking in over the weekend for updated on how C2E2 is panning out for the cast at The Nerd Chambers! Also tweet us @TheNerdChambers or comment below , and let us know your best con experience!

Thanos is Cable?!

The multi talented Josh Brolin who is in many entertaining films such as Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Avengers/Guardians of the Galaxy, and Men in Black 3 is now taking a big role in Fox’s Deadpool as the time traveling brute Cable! After a very successful Deadpool movie from Fox we are very excited to see the much anticipated Deadpool 2 coming out in 2018.

We had an absolute blast seeing a small teaser before Logan that quickly leaked online that didn’t show much other than the hilarious vulgar Merc with a Mouth. At the end of Deadpool we got a small tease about Cable being part of the sequel! If you don’t know Cable is pretty much the side quick/ good guy when it comes to the pair of Deadpool and Cable! It will be very interesting to see a good cop/bad cop sort of back and forth for the whole movie. 

What do you think of Josh Brolin being Cable? Are there any better suited actors in your eyes. Let us know @TheNerdChambets!

Spider-Man Homecoming Trailer 2 Thoughts…

The second official trailer for the upcoming Sony/Marvel film Spider-Man Homecoming dropped earlier today. The trailer was absolutely astonishing. The excitement was incredible and the pace was fantastic. The only thing that worries me… It may have given a way too much. Here is the trailer!

Spider-Man Homecoming Trailer 

POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD!!!

The trailer starts off with Tom Holland as Peter Parker changing into Spider-Man in an alley way. The interesting part here isz the suit seems to be loose fitting. He then presses a button on the chest and it contracts to his body for a better fit. The trailer proceeds to have narration of Tony and Peter talking about what Spider-Man should focus on. To start small and not jump into battles he isn’t ready for. After Peter and his friend are shown hanging out for bits of the trailer, and Peter is telling him about being Spider-Man. The scene from the first trailer where Spider-Man is trying to hold the boat together is pretty much played through completely very quickly. Then the montage begins of Spider-Man versus Vulture.

Summary:

All around the trailer was extremely fun. I personally have been more excited for this movie then any other movie this year Spider-Man being my favorite super hero! The humor was there at all moments who has is great for a Spider-Man movie. There is something that does terrify me… The trailer may have showed too much. It showed Tony taking the suit away from Peter. It showed Peter telling his friend about being Spider-Man. It showed Peter and Liz getting together at the dance and about to kiss. It also shows 2/3 different battles between Vulture and Spider-Man. I am scared that those might be all of the fight scenes…

We can all hope for the best that there is even more to come from the actual movie. Maybe this will be the first time Spider-Man truly makes everyone happy on the big screen. Go let us know @TheNerdChambers what you thought of the trailer!

(Non Spoiler) Review of Netflix’s Iron Fist…

After a weekend of binge watching Iron Fist it is finally time to break down the show… Iron Fist has had a very hard time when it came to the critics. The show was bashed pretty hard about being boring, the lead being uninteresting, and the lack of action sequences. I will be tackling my thoughts without giving any spoilers, but I will be giving a full spoiler review later next week. 

As I mentioned in my first half review, the show had a fairly slow start compared to the other Netflix Marvel shows. Daredevil and Luke Cage. both had a very action filled series from start to finish. Wether the action came from the lead characters or if the action came from the criminals in the shows. Iron Fist on the other hand had a very low amount of action. The show was more based around Danny (Iron Fist) finding out what happened to his family and company. 

If you’re going to watch Iron fist… You need to go into this show to learn more about Iron Fist/Danny as a character. Do not go into the series looking for crazy action sequences. I’m sure that will come later on in later seasons, but for now it’s to purely learn why Danny is the Iron Fist. I still am surprised on the very low rating that season 1 received being 18%. The show has a good way to make you feel for the characters, and you really do understand their relationships with one another. Overall I did enjoy the show. I would give it a 6/10. Good enough to watch if you’re interested in the marvel universe. Unlike Daredevil and Luke Cage… I probably wouldn’t rewatch the show, like I have already for Daredevil, but it was a good watch!

I will be giving a spoiler review coming up next week. I will cover everything possible about the show. Hopefully the non Spoiler review will help you decide wether or not to view the first season of Iron Fist! If you have seen the show let us know what you thought @TheNerdChambers on Twitter! 

Iron Fist Season 1 Rating: 6/10

Venom Is Getting His Own Movie!!!

There has been so much excitement building up for super hero fans for Spider-Man to have his first Marvel Studios debut to cinemas with his own film! Spider-Man Homecoming hits the big screens on July 7th 2017. With all this joy that Spider-Man is finally getting his own movie in Marvel’s MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), we just got hit with some other huge news for the Spider-Man world! Spiderman’s most popular rival Venom will also be getting his own movie, and it will be stamped with an R rating! The movie is set to release October 5th 2018.

After all the success of Deadpool and Logan being slated with an R rating, it looks like Sony will be taking a shot. There are a lot of questions out there on how Venom will work as a rated R film with such a young version of Spider-Man… Sadly there has not been​ a lot of insight other then the fact this may stray from Spider-Man, and just focus on Venom as a character. The other question we are wondering, how will Venom obtain the symbiote suit without contact of Peter Parker? If you don’t know, Venom becomes Venom because Spider-Man gets rid of his symbiote suit (Black Suit Spider-Man), and it finds a new host of Eddie Brock and he begins to terrorize the ciry. 

There are many questions to be answered from Sony… How will this connect to Spider-Man? How will Venom get the suit or will he already have it? Which version of Venom will we see? Will we also get to see Carnage on the big screens because of the R rating?What do you think about all the unanswered questions about the venom movie? Go let us know @TheNerdChambers or leave your thoughts down in the comments below!
