Leia_gentle_giant statue

Due to some backlash over the depiction of Princess Leia in he iconic slave outfit from Return of the Jedi, her toy may be pulled from shelves. Currently Leia cannot be depicted in any sexy pose in the current Marvel Comic books, as stated by the current artist J. Scott Campbell. The artist stated:

You will NOT see an[y] future merchandising featuring the slave outfit again. Trust me. … I’ve heard it from two sources. We can’t even draw Leia in a sexy pose at Marvel, let alone in that outfit! We also had a 3-D SL [Slave Leia] statue killed at a major manufacturer because there will no longer be any SL merchandise.

Slave-Leia

Over at ToyBox.oi9.com, it was reported from Hasbro that the current slave Leia has been requested to be removed and erased from existence because of parents complaints of the sexual motivation to illustrate one of the leaders of a galactic civil war in a demeaning humiliating way while maintaining the male counterparts in a completely non-sexual form.

This is not the first time that Leia has had a toy depicting her in her dance outfit. There have been several toys that have been released in the last 30 years, as well as many statues. It is more than likely that these toys and statues are probably going to be more valuable if Slave Leia is pulled from shelves. Especially the current Star Wars toy line with multiple points of articulation called the Black Series. Everyone loves to hear that toys are pulled from shelves as they suddenly become collector’s items.

It is unfortunate that toys and statues would be limited in scope of nature to what parents feel is appropriate. Many toys exist for adult collectors. Star Wars is especially a great toy line that adults collect more than any other in existence. My own father collected Star Wars toys when he was in teens and his early 20s when the Return of the Jedi came out. There are many toy lines that exist that give much more cause for sexual concern than Princess Leia in a sexy outfit. Look at Masters of the Universe. I love them, but the women are more clothed than the men are.

Slave Leia Toy 2

Regardless of the matter, I do understand parent’s point of view and I do believe that girls should have very positive strong women role models. However not all toys are meant for children and not all children should be given all toys. There are many different versions of Leia that have been created. Perhaps this toy should not be given to children and if a parent disagrees with the toy, there are other toys to be bought. Why should everyone be deprived of an action figure because of a select few that disagree with it. This is only harmful if the parent gives the toy to their child and does not explain to their children about the origin of the toy.

3 Leias

One last night, Slave Leia is loved by so many out there. Especially cosplayers. Many cosplayer men love this outfit too. Hopefully the toy will not go away. But it will not be the first toy to be removed from shelves at the request of parents. What do you think?

Male Slave Leia

Wonder Woman and Marvel

We all the know the top three heroes in the DC universe are Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. DC may be behind is some regards to entertainment with their comic books and their cinematic universe, but one thing is very apparent. They have established that even the most non-comic book people in the world know who their top three characters are in any of their franchises. Marvel has a lot of notable male characters that have reached fame that rivals Superman and Batman. For instance, there are not many people that do not know who Spider-Man and the Hulk are in any form. With the Marvel cinematic universe, Captain America, Iron Man, and even lesser known characters like Ant Man are starting to receive their share of fame. But what about a Marvel female superhero?

cap mavel

Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers, appears to be the closet thing that Marvel has to having their own super hero female character that could rival Wonder Woman. This goes not only in popularity, but also in power levels as well. Although Captain Marvel’s power levels fluctuate and technically she can be far more powerful than Wonder Woman given the right circumstances, but that will be a topic for another time. Marvel has also steadily increased Captain Marvel’s visibility in the last couple of years in the comic book world. There are those that speculate that this is because of the need for a powerful female character that has never taken the front lines in Marvel Comics. And that this would translate over well into the cinematic universe where a Captain Marvel movie is supposedly being made for a release in 2018. In theory.

wonder vs storm

When Marvel and DC comics had a massive crossover in the 90s, all the major characters were given counterparts to fight in opposing universes. Hulk vs. Superman, Captain America vs. Batman, Thor vs. Captain Marvel (Shazam) etc. Even Jubliee had to fight Robin, Tim Drake. Wonder Woman was paired against Storm. At the time, Storm may have been the most popular character in Marvel and readers were given the opportunity to vote for who they thought should win in the battles. Storm won the popular vote and defeated Wonder Woman. It was great! Very short battle, but a lot of the combat had to be contained in just a few comic book pages. Unfortunately since Storm is not part of the Marvel Cinematic universe and it is looking more and more likely that all mutants in general in the comic book universe will be downgraded and virtually forgotten, Storm is not going to be considered as one of the top female characters anymore. Storm is potentially one of the most powerful heroes and was even considered a Goddess, but because of Marvel’s new mutant policy where Inhumans are now the new mutant, she will not receive anywhere near as much publicity as she deserves. That’s another topic for another day.

She hulkmonica-rambeau

There are other Marvel heroines that have some popularity that do sometimes get the spotlight from Marvel. She-Hulk could be considered one of the top female characters of all time. Jennifer Walters has moved far from her cousin’s shadow and made herself in a character that is similar but distinctively different from the Hulk. Also She-Hulk has had her own title, several times, but she has never received as much of a push as Carol Danvers has in the past couple of years. This could because Captain Marvel’s movie is being made and it is Marvel’s attempt to make sure the audience is interested in Carol Danvers. Interesting note, Carol Danvers has not been confirmed as being the hero to take the role of Captain Marvel in the upcoming movie. It is very likely that she will be the main character, but she was not the first person to have that title in Marvel. In fact, she is not even the first female to hold the title of Captain Marvel. Monica Rambeau was the first woman to hold the title of Captain Marvel. Monica was the leader of the Avengers for a while and very powerful character. Monica was never used to her full potential. Ultimately was pushed to the side and given multiple different names which included Photon, Pulsar, and Spectrum. It was so unfortunate, because she was such an interesting hero.

Black Widow

What about Black Widow? Technically she is powerless and before Marvel put her into Iron Man 2, many fans relegated her character as a background Avenger who occasional took charge when Captain America was not around. However, after her appearances in Iron Man 2, Avengers, Captain America- The Winter Soldier, she has received enormous fan support to have her own movie given to her. But does that make her a top contender to being the equivalent to Wonder Woman? Popularity, possibly. Power-wise, absolutely not. That is not even a question.

Wonder Woman

There are so many Marvel Characters that could be brought up. Jean Grey, Invisible Woman, Spider-Woman. None are even close to being as popular as Wonder Woman. DC got it right back in 1941 when Wonder Woman was introduced, and created a character that is possibly one of the most famous superheroes of all time. Granted, her origin was laced with lots of bondage in each issue, but that is a topic for another day. So who do you think is the closest to Wonder Woman in the Marvel Universe? Is there an equivalent?

Tyler Rush as Robin

What a coincidence that I was talking about sexy ass Robin and my fetish to see him tied up and sexually violated, but then behold- Tyler Rush posts up some pics of his new Robin costume for Halloween! Holy fucking hell, he takes the idea of Robin to the highest sexiest way possible. I would love to see a series based on this character. I can just imagine him getting into all kinds of scrapes that Batman or Nightwing would have to save him from.

If you are unaware, Tyler has starred in some incredibly badass scenes with KinkMen.com and with BoundJocks, just to name a few. I love that he’s a Puppy and he’s very knowledgeable about numerous fetishes out there. He also has a great YouTube channel called, WattsTheSafeword Check it out when you get a chance!

NEW Black Ranger

Everyone is going on about the actor that was cast to play the Red Ranger, and the Blue Ranger for the upcoming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie, but have you seen who was cast to play the Black Ranger? Actor/Model/Martial Artist – Ludi Lin has been cast and all I can say is, SPLOOSH! Wow! Never heard of this guy before now, but damn, this guy is hella hot! Check out some of his pics.

The Blue Ranger will be played by RJ Cyler, the Pink Ranger will be played by Naomi Scott, and the Red Ranger will be played by Dacre Montgomery. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie will debut in 2017. So far, no casting news for the Yellow Ranger or if the Green Ranger will be cast.

JessicaJones

No surprise, but I am really looking forward to Netflix’s Jessica Jones series. Not only does this tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but more importantly, this show is setting the stage for future Marvel tv shows that will be introducing other characters who many fans never thought would get their own series. The full trailer for the Jessica Jones series, also known as Jewel in the comics, has been released. Jones possesses super strength, and can fly in the comic book universe. Although I think her flying ability may not be shown in the series.

Purple Man 1Purple Man 2

I knew that David Tenant (The 10th or 11th Doctor) was playing the Purple Man, who is the villain of the series. But I did not realize how evil he can really be. It is not Tenant’s first villain role, but damn, he took it to new heights with this. If you are unaware of who the Purple Man is, he’s a man with the powers to control others. He is not exactly a telepath but he can make others do what he wants. Check out the trailer below.

Han

Someone combined all the Star Wars trailers and tv spots into one trailer and holy fracking hell, the feels I have watching this! I got goosebumps and I was getting all misty eyed. AGAIN! I can’t believe how much this upcoming movie is affecting me emotionally. My excitement is just through the roof. Check out this take on the trailers below. As you can guess, I’m so excited to see this.

I’m probably going to be crying from enjoyment all the way through the movie.

Star Wars

Kimmel

Did you see this? It’s hilarious and very nostalgic. Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd have been together before in past events, but this is still pretty awesome that they went into to character on the day that they are suppose to arrive in the ‘future.’

Star Wars

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you’re excited about Star Wars and have seen the trailer at least 2.5 times and made the standard remark that everyone has made- Where the hell is Luke? Not everyone is as excited as some over zealous fans, but you’re probably looking forward to it regardless. Even just a little. I was planning a whole thing myself but because of the timing, unfortunately I’ll have to do something much more low key. But regardless, I will be seeing the movie on opening night. It will be late, but opening night nonetheless.

John Jedi

What I did not know is that there is an issue with the casting of the lead actor, John Boyega. I did not think this was an issue. According Hollywood Reporter, there’s an actual petition to Boycott the movie because of stupid racist idiots who think that their privileged entitled lives need to have every movie ever made catered to the white straight man as it has been since movies have ever been made. There was even a report on NewsWatch33.com that a Star Wars fan committed suicide over Boyega being cast in the lead role. I cannot find additional facts on this case, but if it is real – Are you kidding me? Forget the idea that Star Wars is a galaxy full of diverse species and genders and should instill the idea that there are many types of beings outside of the human race. But this is a movie. Killing oneself over an ideology is nothing new, but that is ridiculous.

Aftermath

If you are unaware, the first gay male character to be introduced into the Star Wars universe is going from the book Star Wars: Aftermath, written by Chuck Wendig. The book takes place after Return of the Jedi but before this movie. The story will involve Imperial turncoat Sinjir Rath Velus who will be romantically involved with another man. This caused lots of uproar too among some homophobic Star Wars fans out there. But he is there and it part of Star Wars continuity and it is not going anywhere.

Falcon

None of that even matters. I never think of Star Wars in terms of race and sexuality. I got goosebumps and nearly started crying with tears of joy when I saw the trailer. This movie will be epic on so many proportions. Luckily the prequel series lowered the bar incredibly low, so it will be easy to surpass that level. I also feel that the director J.J. Abams is a great director and the fact that he wants real props rather than have 99.9% of the film be CGI, is something on its own that makes it seem even better. Are you excited yet? I’m sure when December gets here, not only will everyone will be a bit more enthused but we will be seeing Star Wars merchandise even more spread out than it is.

It’s Halloween season! What’s a good gay horror movie? I ask this every year hoping that a new gay movie that’s notable will come out. There are many homoerotic gay movies that have been aired or have later been identified as being gay.

Nightmare

A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2 is probably one of the most popular and memorable of the gay homoerotic movies. The film had a gay man in the lead role as the hero, which that in itself traditionally goes to a woman. And there were tons of gay sexual references throughout the film. This even includes the main character going to a leather bar and meeting his gym teacher there.

jeepers-creepers-2

Jeepers Creepers 2 is an often overlooked homoerotic movie. The guys in this movie are all super hunk basketball players who are being hunted down by the monster of the movie – The Creeper. We get to see these guys all peeing together, which I didn’t know was a thing except in gay porn. They also hang out together with their shirts off on a sweaty bus with very few females around. The Creeper even seems to lust after a couple of them a bit more than others and it seems like he’s only going after the males.

Covenant

Does the movie the Covenant count as a horror movie? It has SUPERMAN hottie- Sebastian Stan (the Winter Soldier) and there’s all kinds of gayness going on. Lots of naked shower scenes, the absence of any real female characters, and a forced male on male kiss. But the movie itself is anything but horror related. Just witchcraft hunky hot warlocks.

Hellbent

The movie Hellbent seemed to hold the crown as one of the most well done gay horror movies that had a decent plot and had characters in it that identified as gay characters. They were not suggested as being gay, they were not just homoerotic. The actors were playing gay men. Which is why I think this is a great movie!

Youre Killing Me

The movie You’re Killing Me is a new 2015 slasher flick that I have yet to see, but I have high hopes. It looks like it’s about a gay couple where one of them is a serial killer behind his partner’s back. It’s a great twist to the whole American Psycho bit, but this looks like the pair do care about each other. Should be interesting.


Another newer gay suspense movie is the 2014 The Dark Place. This stars Brent Corrigan before he returned back to porn and was using the name Sean Paul Lockhart. This is much more of a thriller than horror or slasher flick. But it definitely had its moments.

Vampire Boys

What else is out there? I know these are a lot and I’ve missed out on a lot of gay/homoerotic movies, but what would you consider a well done gay horror movie? I know there’s got to be a lot of them.

Daredevil 1

After seeing the recent leaked teaser for season 2 of Daredevil, I’m reminded at how hot the main actor, Charlie Cox is in this role. He was at New York Comic Con and he took a bunch of pics with his costars and had a panel to answer a lot of questions.


I’ve looked in his past roles and I had no idea that he was in the movie Stardust! That’s awesome, I loved that movie. He was also in The Theory of Everything and Boardwalk Empire. I can’t believe I didn’t realize that. Not to mention that a new Defenders series has been announced from Marvel and the he’ll be in it as Daredevil. Probably with Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, possibly Punisher and Iron Fist. How awesome is that?


I’m excited about his upcoming season of Daredevil. Can you tell that I’m seriously promoting it and urging everyone to watch it? No joke though, I am excited to see the development of his and his supporting characters on the show. But even more so to see the appearances of Punisher and Electra. It’s unsure whether or not Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will make any appearances but they all will be linking together for the Defenders series, so there are sure to be some references. I love how Marvel is introducing all of these characters and but still giving them their own spotlight.

Daredevil 2

I know it’s too much to hope that we will one day see a massive Marvel movie that will have every character introduced in the Marvel Cinematic universe. If even just to have the Defenders shown on Earth defending the planet as the Avengers are in space fighting Thanos who has possession of the Infinity Gauntlet (Infinity Wars movie?). That would be the most epic thing in the world and I would literally be jumping in the air at how geektastic that would be!

Anyways, I’m excited and I can’t wait. The Jessica Jones series airs next month on Netflix and Daredevil season 2 starts next year. Watch Daredevil season 1 if you have not yet, you’ll definitely love it!
