TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3564:
My Thanks to Beth Accomando, of Cinema Junkie, for starting off my day right!
Last night, I posted blog #3563 on the passing of Joe Simon, co-creator of Captain America for Marvel Comics, and posted it as usual on my Facebook pages, both 'personal profile' and my 'fan' page. That was sad news...
Overnight, Beth had clicked the 'Like' option on my wall post about the blog, and in return I went in to see what she had been posting the last few days on her own Facebook fan / brand page.
There I found that she had posted the brand new film posters for The Avengers, the Marvel Film that is being released on May 4th of 2012. Which naturally includes Captain America! So although the co-creator of Captain America has passed away this week, his co-creation continues on for even more people to see next year. A 'living legacy' if you will.
I'm glad that Joe Simon, who turned 98 years old two months ago, was able to see the Captain America Film earlier this Summer. To me, that is the 'Best' Superhero film done yet! I normally only give a Near Mint (NM) 9.4 out of a possible 10.0 rating for comics or comic book movies, but for the Cap film, I had to give it a Near Mint / Mint (NM/M) 9.8! Here's the link to blog #3473 with Vinnie's / Tina's / and my review.
Until these two new posters... I hadn't gotten excited about the film... Due to the changes in Director, etc.... I haven't been expecting much, quite honestly. For more on the background of the upcoming film, please see the Wikipedia entry.
But I now feel what Martin Goodman, founder of Timely / Atlas / Marvel Comics must have felt, after coming up with the idea to have a 'superhero team comic book'. Just the very idea of all these great superheroes on the Big Screen together is exciting! Seriously!
Yeah, I'm not expecting it to be as good as the Captain America Film... But just the 'idea' of seeing all of the superheroes on the Big Screen together is exciting to me!
Ever since 1963, when I first saw Avengers #1 comic book with Thor / Hulk / Ant-Man / Wasp / Iron Man on the cover! Sheesh! I can hardly wait!
And yeah... If the film doesn't turn out to be the 'winner' that it should be... There's always the next day... Saturday, May 5th for the 2012 Free Comic Book Day to attend!
I'm hoping that this will be the Great Weekend that it should be!
As I used to say when I was a Marvelmaniac... 'Make Mine Marvel'! At least for that May of 2012 weekend!
