12 Days of Anime: Live Action Adaptations (Day 9)


Sup, today I was able to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and it was amazing. Expect a review for that soon but I this got me thinking. There are quite a few movies that I’m looking forward to in 2019.  Here is five live-action movie adaptation that I’m looking forward too.

I’m pretty sure that my love for Marvel has been made pretty clear but I’m excited none the less. This is the MCU opportunity to portray a strong female lead because if I’m keeping it real with ya’ll, Scarlett Witch and Black Widow aren’t what they could have been which is wild in Wanda’s case because she is one of the strongest in the Marvel Universe but that’s a story for another day.
Aside from that, I’m looking forward to the possibility that this opens up for the rest of the MCU storyline.  In the Comics, she was able to duke it out with Thanos, there always the possibility that she will be the one to take him out.  Since Chris Evan is leaving his Captain American role behind, will she ascend as the new Captain America or will they pass the torch to Falcon. Or they could drop the ball completely but after Black Panther, I feel like they’re on the right track. I’m rambling right now, so I’ll leave it at that.

I’ve had mixed feeling about a lot of the DC live action films but even with all doubts and past discretion looming, I’m still interested in checking out SHAZAM! The trailers just make it look entertaining and I am also curious to see how they spin this. DC has a thing where they love traumatic events that help to shape their mightest icons.  The trailer seems really light-hearted but who knows how this will turn out. We”ll just have to wait and see.

Infinity War had me fucked up. I knew how the Comic Book turned out but I didn’t think that Disney would follow suit. I figured that there would one or two deaths but not that. I mean it’s Disney, the same company who turns tragic situations to love stories. (Pocahontas and Little Mermaid) I’m curious as to how they will remedy this in the next few films.

I don’t know who asked for this but I can’t even front, this looks so good. While I have my doubts, I plan to walk into this with an open mind.  This cinematography, costumes and production value will without a doubt be top-notch.  With Will Smith on board, I feel like the acting will be as well.

This is another one of those movies where I’m wondering who asked for this. I came up on the Pokemon Games and the animation. And while the idea sounds off the walls because it is, this looks like its going to be hilarious. That’s all due to banter between Justice Smith and Ryan Reynolds.  If their chemistry carries like this throughout the entire movie, it will be amazing.

There you have it. My list of live action movies that I’m looking forward to 2019.
