Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. The final cherry ton top of Marvel’s big Hall H presentation was the official confirmation that Brie Larson will indeed be playing Captain Marvel!
We already kinda knew that, but it’s great that she’s officially part of the family now. Carol Danvers is a huge character and Larson is so goddamn good at everything she does that I can’t help but view this as one of the best moves Marvel has made since casting Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man.
Even though I wasn’t on the ground in San Diego it really feels like Marvel’s still swinging for the fences and delivering quality project after quality project. The live tweeting from in the room was nothing but excitement, even from the more cynical among my colleagues.
Brie Larson will kill it in this role. I absolutely can not wait to see her mix it up with the Marvel family!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. We’ve known for a while that Kurt Russell was cast in Guardians of Galaxy V.2 and it was strongly hinted at that he would be playing Star Lord’s dad. Well, today at Marvel’s Comic-Con panel it was revealed that he is indeed Star Lord’s dad, but it gets weird.
Kurt Russell will be playing this guy:
 

 
That’s right, a living planet fathered Star Lord and that living planet is being played by Kurt Fuckin’ Russell (his legal middle name, I believe).
They showed some footage at the panel that also confirmed Sylvester Stallone is in the cast, which of course makes this a quasi-sequel to Tango & Cash officially, I think. Word from those in the Hall was that the slightly more grown up Baby Groot stole the show (after footage of him helping Yondu and Rocket break out of prison) and that Come A Little Bit Closer and Break the Chain are on the new mix-tape.
There’s also some news about a Guardians ride at Disneyland, but I’ll write a separate story on that.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. One of the things Marvel debuted at their panel during the San Diego Comic-Con was their new intro logo, a polished variation of their now iconic “flipping” opener.

Is it just me or does this remind anybody else of those old HBO “Feature Presentation” logos that used to play way back in the day?
It’s definitely spiffy. What do you folks think?
