Where there's Marvel, there's a way.  
++ I think I, among many others, believed that Stan Lee was immortal on some level like many other legends so hearing about his death was like a punch to the gut in a way. I'm not exactly huge with the Marvel comics or even the MCU, but his creations of these characters and stories was something that changed comics forever. He left an impact on pop culture and his legacy will continue on. It will undoubtedly be bittersweet when we see his final cameo appearances in upcoming MCU films. RIP Stan Lee, you created a legacy that will forever be remembered.

++ It appears that Agents of SHIELD has already been renewed for a seventh season before the sixth season even premieres. I found this rather interesting, but I'm guessing that there are plans for them coinciding with the MCU, which explains the S6 summer premiere instead of the fall or midseason. I'm curious to see how this goes and even where the show goes from here, considering how the S5 finale was treated like a series finale. Although, sidenote? I do not like Daisy's new hairstyle for S6. I know that Chloe went blonde during the break, which is fine for her, but it really doesn't work for the character, neither does the combination of that purple streak. They were probably working with a tie-in for Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors which Daisy's animation has purple ombre hair, but unfortunately it just kind of pushes into that stereotypical "Asian hair streak" trope that many Asians want gone. So, yeah, not a fan. I hope it's only temporary....

++ Once Upon A Deadpool is going to be a PG-13 cut of Deadpool which will be given a limited theatrical release in December. This is in part of mocking the "concerned" parents campaigning for the first movie to be made family-friendly, but mostly it's doing this for charity. And honestly, this is such a classic Deadpool-style way to go about it, and it looks hilarious.

++ Speaking of Ryan Reynolds, the fact that he's voicing Pikachu in Pokemon: Detective Pikachu is simultaneously hilarious and also brilliant at the same time. I thought that people were joking about this, since this trailer came out of nowhere, but after watching it I'm so enthralled. Apparently this is based on a video game called Detective Pikachu, and in general people have been wanting to see what a live-action Pokemon would be like, and just based on this trailer alone the visuals look fantastic and having Ryan Reynolds voice Pikachu is just the best move for this movie. Also, Pikachu is so fluffy and cute! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Stan Lee died on my birthday which felt kinda weird. Anyway, I think that a lot of people had the right idea celebrating his life and creations which do make him immortal after all. RIP, Stan.

stereotypical "Asian hair streak" trope
I mentioned that in my reply to you before reading this entry. It's always blue or purple, too.

That is very true, immortality means leaving behind a legacy, something that people will forever remember you by. And Stan Lee definitely created that.

Ugh, I just wish it would stop. :/

The whole Pokemon craze went by me completely but the trailer looked funny enough that I will check it out. Ryan Reynolds is like the worst possible choice to voice Pikachu and yet somehow the ONLY choice. Does that make any sense? lol
Renée: Kahlan. Facepalm.rogueslayer452 on November 20th, 2018 02:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm the same. I grew up during the craze but it never really appealed to me at the time, so that kinda bypassed me as well. However, I cannot deny that I find certain Pokemons adorable.

lol, and that makes total sense. He seems like the last person you'd consider voicing Pikachu, and yet it totally works for this movie and what they're going for, therefore it's perfect casting. It's kinda the reason I'm so curious about this movie, tbh. ;)

I'll miss Stan Lee and his cameos.

lol at Deadpool voicing Pikachu. I don't think I'll see the movie, since I've only seen a couple of episodes of the anime at the beginning, but it looks like a fun movie.
Renée: Elementary. Joan Watson.rogueslayer452 on November 20th, 2018 02:14 pm (UTC)
Same. :(

I haven't seen anything of Pokemon aside from a few things, but I think this will be enough of a stand-alone that you can just watch it without knowing much about it. It's great for fans who have wanted this for so long, of course, but I think anyone can go see it regardless. I know I'm curious.

"believed that Stan Lee was immortal on some level like many other legends"
Same. Even tho he was 95...it still sucked to hear.
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 20th, 2018 02:11 pm (UTC)
He was just one of those people who you thought would be around forever, even though you knew was illogical you still wished and hoped that it would be true.
noybusiness: Leoben/Anders/Starbuck threesomenoybusiness on November 20th, 2018 04:09 pm (UTC)
I could hardly believe the news. Or that he was 95.
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 21st, 2018 03:13 am (UTC)
Me neither. He certainly didn't seem 95 years old, that's for sure.

I was very sad to hear about Stan Lee. But you're right, his legacy will live on. I've never been into comics, but am really into the films based off the comics. It will be really sad not seeing his cameo in every film. =(
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 24th, 2018 01:58 am (UTC)
It makes me wonder if they're gonna continue to pay tribute to him in future films, like having a little "cameo" of him even though he's not physically there anymore. Regardless, I know that for the upcoming ones they will no doubt have the "in memory of Stan Lee" title cards at the end and it'll be even more heartbreaking. :(

I am not a Marvel or Comic fan but of course I knew Stan Lee. He was so important for the history of comics. And like you wrote, his legacy will be forever remembered.

Fluffy Pikachu looks sooo cute. ♥
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 24th, 2018 01:56 am (UTC)
Yeah, I think even non-comic book fans can appreciate the impact Stan Lee made in pop culture.

I know! :D I'm not huge on Pokemon, but I've always believed that Pikachu would be fluffy, and just seeing it confirmed in the trailer makes me so happy.

Today I watched Ant-Man and the Wasp and saw Stan Lee's cameo in it.
I will truly miss it to see him in a scene in the future marvel movies.
Renée: Skye. Transformation.rogueslayer452 on November 24th, 2018 12:45 pm (UTC)
I was pleasantly surprised when I saw Stan Lee appear at the end of Venom. I mean, of course he would, it's a Marvel movie. But yeah, I'll miss his cameo appearances. They were always such a joy no matter what.

It is the same for me. I always had to smile when I saw him in those cameo appearances. I will miss that.

Deadpool always manages to entertain, even if it's with material we've already seen. :)
Renée: Kahlan. Facepalm.rogueslayer452 on November 24th, 2018 01:54 am (UTC)
Yep, pretty much, and I'll consume it either way. ;)

I mean, the guy literally was the foundation for most of the comic industry as we know it that he became a literal fixture, combined with the fact that he was still around.

Huh. I guess AoS is still kicking around because Marvel feels like they need some sort of TV presence still, despite the spat they're having with Netflix?
Renée: Jessica Jones.rogueslayer452 on November 26th, 2018 04:30 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I think that's the thing that solidified everything, because Stan Lee had still been around when Marvel was cementing itself as being huge on the big screen. Pretty much everyone knew who he was, so even if you're not into the comic book world you still knew who he was.

Huh. I guess AoS is still kicking around because Marvel feels like they need some sort of TV presence still, despite the spat they're having with Netflix?

I feel like it's a difficult situation in regards to reclaiming properties. Since Marvel is now owned by Disney, and Disney owns ABC, Agents of SHIELD is considered safe as opposed to any Marvel series on Netflix. I'm not going to pretend I know what's happening behind closed doors in regards to Netflix vs. Marvel/Disney with the streaming service situation, but that's just my guess on it. It's probably why other Marvel shows like Cloak and Dagger and Runaways are safe because they're on networks/streaming services owned by Disney as well.

Here's a cool theory about why AoS S6 is delayed. Hope it's true; I'd love to see Coulson back in the movies.
