Nerd News with Bytes N’ Brews is back, and this week we have a movie themed episode. That’s just the way this week happened. It makes sense, though. It was a holiday week, so what better way to get the word out and people talking about the next big movie? Let’s jump right in.
Toy Story 4
While the original Toy Story 4 teaser has been out for nearly two weeks, it was just confirmed this week by Buzz Lightyear himself (Tim Allen) that Keanu Reeves has some sort of mystery role in the upcoming sequel. WHOA! It’s all very hush hush right now, and yes we know this is a movie for kids. But we’re really hoping for a John Wick action figure cameo just laying waste to a whole warehouse of bad toys.
New Sony/Marvel Movies Announced
That’s right, yet more, previously unannounced Marvel movies. But these are most likely not going to to be brought into the fold of the MCU. All we know at this point is, Sony has announced both movies are “Sony/Marvel” films, and they’re slated for 2020 release dates. One is just titled as a “film” and the other specifically says “sequel.” It would stand to reason, with how well Venom did, that’s the sequel they’re talking about. And the word around the campfire is the standalone film will be Jared Leto’s Morbius flick.
A Very Deadpool Christmas
Once Upon a Deadpool, the Deadpool “movie” that no one saw coming. Mainly because we’ve already seen it. It’s a recut of Deadpool 2, but “made to be PG-13.” How exactly that’s going to be achieved, we don’t know. What we do know is there will be some new footage with presumably the movie parts being read by Deadpool to a kidnapped Fred Savage à la Savage’s childhood role in The Princess Bride (minus the kidnapping part).
As always, we’d love to hear from all of you. What do you think Keanu’s character in Toy Story 4 will be? Are you for or against the presumed Venom sequel and/or the potential Morbius movie? And will Once Upon a Deadpool overtake Die Hard as America’s favorite Christmas holiday movie?
