Secrets of The Sire

On the latest episode of the Secrets of the Sire radio show and podcast: Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, will be replaced by a 15-year old black female named Riri Williams. Making the new Iron Man, uh, a woman. And a minority at that. Is this forced diversity again? Or merely the makings of the next Miles Morales? What about the fact that Bendis himself is a white guy and folks are complaining about that? We dive into ALL of it!

PLUS: We launch our Plan 10 from OuterSpace Kickstarter live on air and welcome Big Dog Ink publisher Tom Hutchison on air to give us his take on the controversy and his San Diego #ComicCon preview.

Check out an excerpt from the podcast where we break down the story:

The New Iron Man… er Maiden?

Host Michael Dolce:

“Written by Bendis and drawn by Stefano Caselli, the decision to replace the popular Stark as Iron Man with a minority female character is a move that was surely designed to move the needle. And according to Brian, he’s ready for the reaction from the expected reaction from the fans.

And yes, I think Bendis will write a great book. And I’m sure the character will be three dimensional etc. The irony on the move is that it is also being criticized because Bendis is white. So this one gets you from all sides no?”

This week on Secrets of the Sire: With word that 20th Century Fox has “talked” about teaming up with Marvel Studios, we broke down our top Marvel/Fox crossovers we wanted to see including Deadpool/Spidey! But can an R-Rated character exist in a PG Universe?

Plus! We went spinning the racks on the rumors that Keanu Reeves might be taking the red pill and reprising his role as neo in the Matrix. And we welcomed Victor Dandridge of Vantage InHouse Productions as he gives us our Con survival guide! With San Diego Comic Con just around the corner, learn the ins and outs of #conlife with the man who’s made it his career!

Check out an excerpt from the podcast where our guest Victor Dandridge gave the ultimate scenario for Deadpool to exist outside the R-Rating:

Deadpool Vs. Spider-Man

Host Michael Dolce: “The pairing was so successful that in 2016 Marvel actually went ahead and gave the dynamic duo their own series. With a solid, wise-cracking performance by Tom Holland in Civil War under his belt and Ryan Reynolds fulfilling his dream role as Deadpool in the Fox smash this past winter, this could happen. And it might just be the most anticipated – and most difficult – team-up to take place, what with the R-rating attached to the latter.”

Victor Dandridge: “I think it could work if Deadpool knew he was in a PG-13 movie.”

Host Michael Dolce: That could work! Break the fourth wall the whole time! Oh, one of our periscope viewers just had another interesting suggestion…”

PLUS: We launch our our Plan 10 Kickstarter right on the show! That’s right, the sequel to the Ed Wood classic begs the question: “Why raise the dead to destroy humanity when our cell phone culture is doing a fine job on its own?” It’s a fun book with a unique twist that pits aliens vs humans vs technology.

With word that 20th Century Fox has “talked” about teaming up with Marvel Studios, fans of the Avengers, X-Men and the Fantastic Four franchises may soon get their wish to see all their favorite Marvel characters on screen together.

Below is an excerpt taken from the article I posted on Inquisitr.com.

Deadpool Spider-Man

Deadpool Vs. Spider-Man

The “Merc With A Mouth” has met “Your Friendly Neighborhood Wall-Crawler” several times in the Marvel universe with hilarious results. In fact, the pairing was so successful that in 2016 Marvel actually went ahead and gave the dynamic duo their own series. With a solid, wise-cracking performance by Tom Holland in Civil War under his belt and Ryan Reynolds fulfilling his dream role as Deadpool in the Fox smash this past winter, this might just be the most anticipated – and most difficult – team-up to take place, what with the R-rating attached to the latter. But a fan can dream, right?

So Keanu Reeves became a thing this week on Facebook. Partially for his surprise visit to Parliment, but mostly because an old news item surfaced attributing quotes of a new Matrix sequel in the works. Simply a case of old news catching up with the internet? Could be. We’ll discuss tonight at 8:30pm on TalkingAlternative.com

Below is an excerpt taken from the article posted on Inquisitr.com.

Keanu Reeves Returns To The Matrix

Keanu Reeves Returning To The Matrix? Quotes Surface Online, But Producers Are Staying Mum

According to the article dated January 24th, 2011, Keanu Reeves supposedly let fly at the London International School of Performing Arts that Matrix 4 and 5 were in the works.

“He spoke briefly about 47 Ronin and Bill and Ted 3,” the article reported. “But the big news came when Reeves revealed that he met with the Wachowskis around Christmas. They told him that they completed script treatments for two more Matrix installments. They are planning to make the films in 3D and have already met with James Cameron to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the technology. Reeves added that he’s excited to return as Neo and promised that the treatments will truly revolutionize the action genre like the first Matrix film did.”

This week on Secrets of the Sire: With the blood still drying from Sunday night’s “Battle of the Bastards” we dove head first into the epic battle, the satisfying end of a hated character and what’s to come in the upcoming Game of Thrones Season Finale. And we send off one of my favs: Wun Wun.

Plus! We went spinning the racks on the latest Suicide Squad news and In honor of ID4 Resurgence we unleashed our “Ancient Aliens” drinking game while pondering the question: was this movie really necessary?

Check out an excerpt from the podcast:

“But let’s talk about that battle. And let’s give a shot out to one of my favs who bit the dust: Wun Wun. Any time in a story where you can introduce someone as a villain and then completely flip the script and turn that character into a hero, flip that character where all the things that made them a badass villain can now be used on YOUR side. It’s perfect writing. And we’ll get into why GoT does not make mistakes”

Tonight on Secrets of the Sire: we talk about the deliciously seductive scene that played out on Sunday’s Game of Thrones. The show is always at its best when they mix the savagery of war in a fantastical realm with titillating nudity, romance and sex. And no better example was on display than in Episode 9’s “Battle of The Bastards” that featured a potential couple flirting – and forming – right before our eyes.

Game of Thrones: Is There A Daenerys Romance Brewing Next Season?

Below is an excerpt from an article I just posted on Inquisitr.com.

“I imagine your offer is free of any marriage demands,” Daenerys pondered aloud when Yara and Theon spoke of their Uncle Euron’s plans to wed Khaleesi as part of any partnership.

“I never demand, but I’m up for anything really,” Yara shot back with a smile.

And with that simple line, an immediate call to ship Daenerys and Yara took to the internet.

Tonight on Secrets of the Sire: Suicide Squad is still two months away but it’s pretty obvious director David Ayer is banking on two of DC’s most popular characters to carry it: Harley Quinn and The Joker.

Below is an excerpt from an article I recently posted on Inquisitr.com.

‘Suicide Squad’: David Ayer Banking On Harley Quinn To Carry Film

As reported by Collider, David Ayer debuted a brand new movie poster for the highly-anticipated film starring Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto as the Joker, and Academy Award-nominated actor and box office champion Will Smith as Deadshot. But front and center between the two high profile stars sits Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, one of the most popular DC comics characters ever making her big screen debut in the film

This week on Secrets of the Sire: With the blood still drying from Sunday night’s “Battle of the Bastards” we dive head first into the upcoming Game of Thrones Season Finale. Who lives? Who dies? Who hookups?

[Warning: Game of Thrones Spoilers Ahead!]

But first, fans are still relishing in one of the all-time great Game of Thrones deaths: the heinous Ramsay Bolton. Below is an excerpt from an article I just posted on Inquisitr.com.

Not since the infamous season 4 episode “The Lion and the Rose” has Game of Thrones delivered a death fans have been dying for. Back then, it was heinous King Joffrey, the spoiled arrogant teenager responsible for ending the life of Ned Stark and setting in motion the chain of events that is the Game of Thrones itself.

This time around, in Sunday night’s “Battle of the Bastards,” it’s the truly vile Ramsay Bolton who meets his maker. After tormenting, among others, Theon Greyjoy and Sansa Stark and even slaughtering his own father and step-mother before feeding their offspring to the dogs the fans got what they wanted. And while Joffrey also tormented Sansa Stark, it was in a completely different and much less sadistic manner. Ramsay’s last words to her in fact, right before he’s devoured by the aforementioned starving hounds, is that he’s forever changed her.

“You can’t kill me,” he says weakly. “I’m part of you now.” And in many ways he is, as evidenced by Sansa’s glee after setting the hounds on Ramsay.

This week on Secrets of the Sire we dove head first into Kickstarter for Comics craze with Mummy’s Always Right creator Joe Mulvey. But first we posed the question: Can James Wan “conjure” up a cool Aquaman? Fresh off the heels of the box office smash that is Conjuring 2, Wan talked to UpRoxx about the challenge of directing Aquaman.

Check out an excerpt from the podcast:

“He talks to fish. That’s his power. Of course the bar is set low for James Wan. Though I do love the fact that he referenced Entourage’s Aquaman too.'”

Want some quick Kickstarter Tips? Scroll below this guy’s angry mug and see!

james-wan-talks-aquaman

1) Have your Amazon Info Ready

One thing nobody mentioned was that you have to have your Amazon Payments account verified before you go to launch. Kickstarter themselves will send you a note to get it ready while you set up your campaign, but I didn’t realize that you can’t even preview your Kickstarter without verifying your email, ID, bank account and tax info.

2) Get Your Rewards Done In Advance

Because otherwise they can be a pain to enter and they’re the linchpin of your entire Kickstarter.
