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!

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!
