I have to give it up for Marvel Studios.
The honchos have their stuff together. This week they put on a big to-do in LA to unveil Phase Three of their comics-to-silver-screen parade, and the list goes on to ………. 2019.
Yowser. New characters getting movies of their own will be Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and The Inhumans.
Guardians of the Galaxy is getting a sequel, as is Captain America, Thor and the Avengers.
You can read more about the unveiling in my weekly Thursday Film News blog installment over at the chock-full of cool items Syracuse New Times site by clicking the link below.
Also over there is a report I must admit interests me even more. It’s about an old film with new possibilitites.
That would be “Guys and Dolls.” Yes, Nathan Detroit and Sky Masterson.
Dance over, now. I know you’re curious.
