Top o’ the Lot: Vehicles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.

Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is easily one of the best action movie series of all time. It has everything: Amazing characters, awesome fights, and really, REALLY, cool technology. Among this technology are ray-guns, super suits, even flying hammers, but nothing in the MCU is quite as cool as the plethora of vehicles. Cars, boats, spaceships and more, the list of amazing automobilia goes on and on, but I whittled it down to just the very best of the best. So, without further ado, it flies, you’re not supposed Marvel Studios Logoto do that with bikes, and who was driving that thing? in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Vehicles from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A Conspiracy: Marvel’s Movie Douchebaggery

This article is brought to you by The Secret Society of the Comic Book Illuminati Facebook Group and the entire CBI Network. Join the Conspiracy!

I see dots; I connect dots. This is A Conspiracy!

While I was a bit hesitant to buy into the conspiracy that Marvel Comics was doing away with a lot of the Fantastic Four and X-Men comics, promotion, merch, and pretty much anything else with a 4 or an X on it because of issues with movie licensing, the latest batch of news has pushed me over the edge, and I am now a believer. I guess it makes sense from a financial standpoint (although I still can’t get the numbers to add up) but, numbers aside, it seems like a pretty mean thing to do to us, the fans and readers. But, when I dug a little deeper into Marvel’s Movie history, the timeline shows just how cutthroat Marvel has been with cross-promotion in film.

Top o’ the Lot: MCU Movies We Want To See

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.


Marvel Studios Logo

Since Ironman in 2008, to last year’s Guardians of the Galaxy, to the scheduled Inhumans of 2019, Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is an achievement unlike any other. A universe shared between dozens of films is something geeks will continue to enjoy until at least 2019, but I have to wonder what’s coming next. There are so many Marvel characters to choose from for the next addition to the MCU, so I narrowed this list down a bit to only include character that haven’t yet been introduced. This means no Black Widow, Winter Soldier, or Nick Fury standalone films on this Lot. So, without further ado, we have a team, a king, and a Castle, in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies We Want To See!

3 Questions About Spider-Man Moving to Marvel Studios

We wonder. We ponder. We think. And that leads to the search for knowledge. I only have three questions! (Editor’s Note: There are always more than 3 questions)

Spider-Man LogoThe Internet has cracked in half with the news that Marvel Studios and Sony have come to terms that allow Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel Movie Universe, joining the ranks of the Avengers, The Inhumans, and all those other characters. We’ll see a Spider-Man solo flick, Spider-Man will appear in Captain America: Civil War, and his future in the MCU is finally secured. But this leads to a plethora of questions about the news, but I only have 3. Continue reading 3 Questions About Spider-Man Moving to Marvel Studios

Predictions for 2015

For the most part, prediction articles like these have become more of a series of vague, ‘big-bullseye’ statements that can be easily supported no matter what happens, or, worse, sure things that couldn’t possibly go in any other direction, than anything coming close to a true prediction. Predictions should be risky. So, I’m going to try to stare a bit harder into my crystal ball, go way out on the limb, and get some big-time prognostication going on. And 2015 is full of so much awesome that there’s a lot of stuff to cover, and plenty of predictions to make. I’m only going to cover comic books and comic book films in this article, but I may get into other 2015 predictions later.

Nathan Edmonson Wants a ‘Black Widow’ Movie This Bad

Black Widow 5Black Widow comic book scribe Nathan Edmondson has written his very own script for a feature film starring everyone’s favorite Russian assassin, and he’s posted in on his website.

It’s actually quite good, as is Edmondson’s Black Widow comic. I’m just not sure it’s in the cards for this to happen.

Check out a PDF copy of Edmondson’s script here.
