Sony holds the motion picture rights to Spider-Man and they have decided to play hardball with Disney and Marvel over how Spider-Man will be used in the MCU. At stake are hundreds of millions of dollars and Sony wants to keep 95% of it for themselves, without taking any of the financial risk. Marvel has been bankrolling the Spider-Man MCU movies and Disney would like to split the risk 50-50. Many MCU fans are calling for a boycott of Sony, including the PS4. What is your take?
With Spider-Man removed from the MCU, the Avengers are without an Iron Man counterpart. What about Tom Holland's remaining two Spider-Man movies? Will they be stand alone films with no ties to the MCU? Will Captain Marvel become the only face of the MCU for Phase 4? Should Black Panther now be put into Spider-Man's spot for leadership or should Thor return? What about the Guardians of the Galaxy?
►BLADE is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe! It’s about time. ッ Please enjoy our remastered video of a review we did several years ago that was recorded on our very retro laptop. ッ RIP laptop, you were amazing.
🗡️There was another Day Walker before Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali was announced to take on the iconic role of Blade made famous by award-winning actor Wesley Snipes. Who Is This Actor? Well, it's none other than rapper Sticky Fingaz of the 1990s rap group ONYX. BLADE comes to the small screen via Spike TV’s 2006 Blade TV series. So what happens when Tiberius & Woodrow watch it and make an impromptu video review via an old laptop? ╰☆╮ There will be blood. Lot's of CG blood.

Scarlett Johansson is finally getting her Black Widow movie. Though shooting is under way, not much is known about it. Is this a prequel of sorts and an origin story several years too late? Is it set in another timeline or part of the rift Spider-Man: Far From Home revealed? What if the Red Room cloned another Natasha and this is her? Don't forget Captain America. He could have changed the timeline enough that Natasha survives Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame is in theaters. Does Captain Marvel save the day? Who lives and who dies? Will Black Widow finally get her movie? When will Guardians of the Galaxy Volume III begin filming? Will Brie Larson ever be likable? The Fan Caste crew talks about Avengers: Endgame, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Brie Larson versus the MCU Cast, and all the other happenings in pop culture this week.
Black Panther: a commercial success, Best Picture nominee...and a vehicle for Ron Paul's foreign policy. In this video I explore one of Black Panther's main ideological conflicts and how it has a surprisingly libertarian bent in its resolution.
The gang is back for more antics centered around the fans. Let the big heads talk to themselves, the Fan Caste is for everyone.
Channel Dad Bryon Lape talks about Star Wars Celebration in Chicago and some of the behind the scenes topics with Jessi Milestone of Mindless Entertainment and Anna That Star Wars Girl. Other topics are Star Wars, the Episode IX trailer, The Rise of Skywalker, Kung Fu Hustle, DCEU, MCU, Antman and The Wasp, Aquaman, and beer.
The Russo brothers appeared at a gaming awards show. The audience was all abuzz on Twitter and Instagram. What Avengers news would they have? Would there be a trailer? What about a teaser? Nope. The Russo brothers completely trolled the audience and it was good fun.
Avengers: Endgame is weeks away and Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming to a close. In 2016, Brie Larson was announced as Captain Marvel at Comic-Con. Will she lead Phase 4 for the MCU? Yes, Kevin Feige really likes Brie Larson and has put the lead in Captain Marvel. Get ready fans of the MCU, Phase 4 will have more of Brie. How well will it work?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has had some pretty good origin movies over the past 11 years. Movie goers watched Tony Stark build his Irom Man suits, Thor earn the right to yield the Hammer Mjölnir, Doctor Strange learn and harness magical powers, and T'Challa fight to be the rightful Black Panther. With all that background, how well did the Captain Marvel handle Carol Danvers backstory and path the her powers? Did it sit well with audiences? Did Captain Marvel inspire young women? It is time to find out.
CAPTAIN MARVEL: the most divisive "meh" film ever made or has the bickering made it a statement rather than a movie? Default Assault breaks down all the ups and downs of the MCU's latest film as we prepare for the ENDGAME.
Reports of CAPTAIN MARVEL’s demise appear to have been premature as the film had an outstanding domestic opening weekend haul of $153 million. This fits right in the middle of the original $140-180 projections but vastly exceeded adjusted forecasts after lead actor Brie Larson’s performance during the films press tour. The film performed particularly strong in Imax where it collected $14 million domestically and an additional $22 million overseas. CAPTAIN MARVEL soared into the seventh largest opening for an MCU film right behind the three AVENGERS films, BLACK PANTHER, CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, and IRON MAN 3. The film cost $150 million to produce before marketing and is set to make a hefty profit, based in no small part due to its even stronger opening overseas.
CAPTAIN MARVEL opened in every major overseas market besides Japan and collected a whopping $302 million bringing its worldwide opening weekend total to $455 million. This represents the fourth largest overseas opening weekend of all-times behind only; THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, JURRASIC WORLD and the final HARRY POTTER flick. The film did exceptionally well in the coveted Chinese market where it brought in just under $90 million.
There were concerns that a concerted effort to “review bomb” the film on Rotten Tomatoes and other sites would hurt the films performance like SOLO A STAR WARS STORY and 2016’s GHOSTBUSTERS reboot. While I personally never considered a campaign of this nature a threat to the films bottom line, I did think the negative press from Brie Larson could have a noticeable effect. The film was never in jeopardy of bombing like the GHOSTBUSTERS and SOLO films but CAPTAINMARVEL’s performance certainly speaks to the power of the MCU and its reputation for quality world-wide.
Now the MCU hasn’t been flawless, there have been a handful of lesser quality films like THOR: THE DARK WORLD, and IRONMAN 3 but none of those films destroyed a beloved character, or active..
Default Assault compares Disney's THE ROCKETEER vs. Marvel's CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. Both are based on successful comic book properties, are set during World War II, and are directed by Joe Johnston but do the similarities go much, MUCH farther? And which of the two is the better film?
Barely a day goes by without Brie Larson verbally accosting or antagonizing the main audience of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Early projects for a huge opening weekend for Captain Marvel have shrunk by as much as 60%. Will this be the first failure of the MCU? Is the Captain Marvel full of identity politics or is this Brie Larson virtue signaling to keep from being doxed or trolled by SJWs? The world will only know after the movie is in the theaters and the audience has watched it.
Politics and entertainment can mix. The best results come when the movie maker creates the audience as knowledgable, but lacking in full understanding. Present your side open and honestly, the audience will listen.
Is the MCU about to go all Woke or is Brie Larson talking out of her butt? Will Captain Marvel be the first MCU film to lose money or is Brie trolling the fanboys to watch them cry? Opening day is quickly approaching and the world will know soon enough. If Captain Marvel is Woke, it may spell doom for Avengers: Endgame.
Heard of the Momo Challenge? What about Elsagate? Liquid Metal Pro is here to explain it all.
Do people really believe the Earth is flat? Brainmuffin thinks it is just a troll job that got out of hand and now some people really believe it. Is this the modern Milli Vanilli? Sometimes the joke gets too big to admit.
Rejected by Geeks and Gamers for being too opinionated, kicked out of Comicsgate by Ethan Van Scyver for having no talent to draw, and left for dead by the Wold Class Bullshitters, it is the Fan Caste! Every Friday evening, this lovable band of misfits join to discuss their take on pop culture and world events. Ok, they complain about Star Wars, Marvel, Brie Larson, and Mary Sue Rey. What will happen tonight?
The Fan Caste wanted to get Dave Cullen or Sargon of Akkad on the show, but they are too busy making money. Instead, you will be stuck with the regular crew.

For 11 years, the MCU has grown and become part of modern culture. With Avengers Endgame, most of the MCU will come to a close. Robert Downey, Jr (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America) will not be back. Several other actors are doubtful. The upcoming Captain Marvel movie will both determine the MCU direction after Endgame and who will lead the efforts. Can Captain Marvel live up to the weight being put upon it? Can Brie Larson lead a large cinematic universe?
Summary: Iron Man, Captain America, the roid-raging green behemoth, and Point Break with an electric hammer, coming together to fight evil. What was once an impossible fantasy in the minds of comic-book enthusiasts everywhere, has turned into the most lucrative movie franchise in human history, grossing over $9 billion worldwide. Bringing the best that Hollywood has to offer into a world populated by characters known all over the globe has surprisingly resulted in an unprecedented amount of success with very few missteps. What George Lucas was to previous generations, Kevin Feige is to millenials. It is thanks to him and the talent he has accumulated that we are able to see high-profile actors like Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, and Scarlett Johansson battle it out with the likes of Jeff Daniels, James Spader, Hugo Weaving, and Robert EFFING REDFORD. Ladies and gents, this is what Star Wars was to a whole new generation.

How will the deaths of major characters shape the landscape for future, less known heroes? Is Captain Marvel up to the task to carry this juggernaut into the 2020s or will there be a little bit of brand confusion when another hero with the same name attempts to save DC films from harsh criticism?
