It's My Birthday!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Comic Book History

It Is His Birthday Today!

TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4040 -   That's right!  Today is my Birthday!

It seems that I'm usually celebrating the special day at Comic-Con International: San Diego, or at least it seems that way... As I did it in 2014, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2004 in recent years.

This year however, the Comic-Con ran July 9th thru 12th, so I find myself here at home, without a convention to attend...

I did view the new comic book film, Ant-Man, as reviewed in blog #4035, this past Sunday.  That was a very good birthday present to myself I might say!

Which got me to thinking this morning as I got up.   I was reading Animation Magazine, the July 2015 issue that I picked up at the Animation Magazine booth at the 2015 Comic-Con last night... The article on pages 30 thru 33 must have stuck in my head while I was sleeping.

The title of the article was 'Page to Screen: Upcoming Comic-Book Movies'.  Now that was a good article to read! You see, when I was younger, I dreamed of seeing my favorite comic book characters on the Big Screen. 

There weren't many of them... Batman in 1966 was the biggie!  But Marvel Comics was more my reading pleasure and collecting bug.

Nowadays there are usually three big films each year with a comic book character.  Click this link for the comic book movies I have reviewed the past few years in my blog.  Just keep clicking the last blog shown for 'Older' to see the next five films reviewed.   The link goes back several years, but you can just go back as far as you'd like.

This morning I wish there was a 'Future' link, as in the Animation Magazine article there are several I'd like to see.  Now if only I live that long! 

Here are the ones mentioned in the article, and my thoughts on them.  Hey, it's My Birthday you know!


Ant-Man - July 17th.  You know my thoughts on that one.

Attack on titan - August 1 (Japan) -  No thoughts on this. I didn't know it was even coming out.

Fantastic Four - August 7th -  From the trailers I've seen so far, I don't have any interest in this.  And this from a guy who has stated that Fantastic Four was his favorite comic book series!

Bakuman - October 3 (Japan) - What the heck is this?!


Deadpool - February 12 - I'm not gaga over Deadpool.  He wasn't created until 1991 by Faian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld.   I'll wait to see how I feel about going in February of next year.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice - March 25 -  This could be good. And hey!  It has the first live-action theatrical feature appearance of Wonder Woman!  That would do it for me!

Captain America: Civil War -  May 6th -  I've liked the Cap films so far.  The topic doesn't excite me much though.

X-Men: Apocalypse - May 27th - The X-Men set in the year 1983. Ehhh... This is a maybe to see.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell - June 3rd -  I've had enough of Turtles films...

Suicide Squad - August 5th - I didn't read this series from DC.  Don't have any thoughts on this one.

Gambit - October 7th - No thoughts on this... Gambit is not a character that I'm that interested in.

Doctor Strange - November 4th -  I need to see more on what the film is about, but this could be of interest.


Untitled Wolverine - March 3rd -  I believe this is to be Hugh Jackman's last time as Wolverine. I like Hugh Jackman.  This will be on my list to see.

Ghost in the Shell - March 31st -  Haven't read this series.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - May 5th - Definitely on my 'Must See' list.  I enjoyed the first film in this trilogy.

Fantastic Four Sequel - June 9th - You gotta be kidding me! 

Wonder Woman - June 23rd - All I can say is... Its about time for a Wonder Woman film!

Untitled Spider-Man - July 28th - Right after my projected Birthday... Don't know if I will take this one in or not.  The first Spidey Trilogy was damn good to me.  The second one... Not.

Thor: Ragnorak - November 3rd -  Hey its got Chris Hemsworth as Thor.  He is the embodiment of Marvel's Thor to me, so I'm hoping to see this one.

The Justice League: Part One -  November 17th - This could be good...


The Flash - March 23rd - Starring Ezra Miller, Jordan Flash Rose... Who??

Avengers - Infinity War - Part 1 - May 4th -   Should be one I would be interested in...

Black Panther - July 6th - I've read this character's appearances since he was introduced in Fantastic Four.  I should be going to this one...

Untitled X-Men - July 13th -  I'm kind of tired of X-Men films...Probably will be even more so in 2018.

Aquaman - July 27th - Haven't read his series for decades...

Captain Marvel -  November 2nd - Hmmm... A female Captain Marvel...


Shazam -  April 5th - DC's Captain Marvel... Starring Dwayne Johnson...No thoughts on this one.

Avengers - Infinity War - Part II - May 3rd - Long time to wait...

The Justice League: Part Two - Same thoughts on this one... A long time to wait.

Inhumans - July 12th-  Could be interesting.


Cyborg - April 3rd - From DC... Have not read this character's appearances.

Green Lantern - June 19th - I enjoyed the recent Green Lantern film, but this one is probably not a continuation.

Whew!   That is it for upcoming book films!

As you can see from the above list and my comments, there are a few I'd like to see should I be around that long...

That's the Blog for today... On My Birthday.  Thanks for reading!
