Wham! Bam! Pow! Comic Book Movie Awards 2014 Part 1

Wham! Bam! Pow!

Comic Book Movie Awards 2014

Welcome to the first ever Wham! Bam! Pow! Comic Book Movie Awards!

As I told you in my previous post, this one's an award for the big summer films that just might not make it into my Underdog list because they're not small films and also have great critical acclaim. So let's see what will happen early next year when the Underdog Awards play. For now though we have these awards to satisfy my blogging needs.

So let's just get to it with the awards. The first award of the day is...


Wham! Bam! Pow! Award for Exciting Future Comic Book Movie

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

We've got the first look of the menacing Ultron, we know what the trailer is like and we all have faith in our man Joss Whedon. The Avengers reunion sounds like and looks like to be the typical sequel formula; BIGGER, BETTER AND MORE BOMBASTIC!

So there's nothing else to say

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Despite all the hoopla about the casting and the idea to turn this into a Justice League movie, there's no denying every single person will be heading to the cinemas on release day.

Come on, it's Batman and Superman on screen for the first time ever. Throw in Wonder Woman, Aquaman and maybe a whole host of other Leaguers, then this one's a recipe for excitement if not success.

Plus all you need to see is the leaked teaser for the film with Bat's confronting Supes and your convinced.

X-Men: Apocalypse

If nobody will say it, then I will; Days of Future Past was the best superhero movie (alongside Dark Knight) of all time. So to see the returning team of writer Simon Kinsberg, director Bryan Singer and the eclectic cast alongside hopeful newbie's will be one hell of a treat.

Plus this time it's not humans or Magneto taking center stage as villain, but rather the daunting Darwinian follower in Apocalypse. The mutant god will be one hell of a foe for both Charles X-Men and Magneto to defeat.

News of recasting former trilogy cast members as youngsters and more Wolverine excite. If not anything  else, at least will get to see another era and another rift of confrontations between James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender.

Guardians of The Galaxy 2

Whether it be about Quill's father or taking down the rising threat of Thanos, Guardians two promises to be another treat under the tutelage of the electric James Gunn.

The first film was a hoot and we'll see if the second can continue the roller coaster ride that Marvel is having. Plus this could prove to be this generations Star Wars.

Captain America 3

Despite the fact that a lot of fans are hopped up on Guardians, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is indeed the better film of the two and possibly the best in the MCU. It's status quo changing plot, has made many a people excited for The Avengers future as well as SHIELD.

The Russo brothers promise a lot more change with the third film and with BvS moving from the release date of the two, Cap has a higher chance of success. Rumors float from storylines, to how the hunt to find Bucky will go to the most shocking that Cap 3 will have Cap with his own team of Avengers.

This one's really intriguing.

And the Winner is...
Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Wham! Bam! Pow! Award for Most Tantalizing Tease

'Sinister Six' The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Even though people really hated this film, the exciting news from it was that a whole host of Spidey villains would be making it onto the screens in the first ever all Supervillain film; The Sinister Six. Question is; what will they be doing?

Within the credits itself, Sony cheekily revealed who the members in the six just might be including Dane DeHaan's chilling portrayal of Goblin.

'Age of Miracles' Captain America: The Winter Soldier

While we don't really get a tease for Ultron himself, the Cap sequel's post credits stinger divulges details on three other pieces involved in next years big sequel.

These being the villainous Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) of HYDRA, who might have a lot more to do in future films (read Cap 3) along with Mutants Miracles Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and MCU's Quicksilver (Aaron Johnson). These two will be quite a thorn for our heroes and will open up new possibilities for the MCU (hopefully this means the Inhumans).

'En-Sabah-Nur' X-Men: Days of Future Past

If the new X-Men film blew you away, then the teaser at the end was heart attack inducing for any comic fan. It was a moment of pure awesomeness to not only witness the power of a young Apocalypse (imagine what he'll do as he grows older) but also to have  glimpse of his Four Horsemen.

Pure glee rushes through me as I think what an epic comic book villain he will make for the X-Men on film.

'Not Terran' Guardians of The Galaxy

For comic fans this wasn't such a shocking moment and even intelligent viewers would have caught on quick that there was more to Peter than we knew. Yet what shocks is that unlike in the comics, Emperor J'Son might not be Peter's father in the movies. Instead as the Nova Corps puts it, it's an ancient race of beings.

What makes this intriguing is that it adds a lot of weight and material for Quill if the sequel chooses to follow this path and gives him a defined arc from now. So it'll will be fun to see where this little snippet of information takes our new heroes.

'My Mom knew Someone like that' X-Men: Days of Future Past

Not many fans were happy when Quicksilver was shown and announced to be part of the past in the new X-Men film. Yet he went on to steal the show in a brilliant scene.

The icing on the cake was one thing fans didn't expect, for Bryan Singer to acknowledge that Quicksilver like in the comics might just be Magneto's son. Go watch that scene again and carefully see Michael Fassbender's face, it reveals quite a lot of fun information that hopefully results in Quickie being part of the next film. 

And the winner is...
 'En Sabah Nur' X-Men: Days of Future Past

So that's it for now, stay tuned for the next set of awards
