Things I Like and Don’t Like for the Week of Sept 5th, 2018

You want to know what’s really grinding my gears this week?

I’ll tell you what’s grinding my gears.

Hashtags are for Comments in Code

Are they really naming this new Venom Mech character with a hashtag in his name? Seriously Marvel, a hashtag? I know people are all over this with the initial hype but has anyone really stopped to think about how stupid this name is? Ven#m. Really? Maybe I’m getting old or something but hold that thought, I have to tell some kids to get off my lawn.

And for the record, Twitter ruined the original use of the hashtag which was used in actual code development and such. Not for social media.

Say It Ain’t So Drax

In an interview on the Jonathan Ross Show, Dave Bautista, better know as Drax is still spreading his displeasure over James Gunn being fired and now GOTG Vol. 3 is on hold.

During the interview, he briefly mentioned he’s not sure if he wants to work for Disney any longer.

Well, that just sucks. I mean, as much as I liked his portrayal of Drax and he could easily be replaced, I just don’t see that happening. If it were to happen, I’d be willing to bet they just write him out entirely. Either way, Disney needs to fix their mess because last I checked, Guardians make them some decent cash so I doubt the entire movie is scrapped after it was also mentioned the initial crew was dismissed from the set.

Marvel Capitalizing on Cates

More Guardians of the Galaxy news that’s actually better than the Drax news. Marvel has plans to bring back Guardians of the Galaxy in 2019 under a new creative team, Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw, the team who brought us Thanos Wins story line.

So this could be a good thing right? I just hope with more and more titles under Cates belt, we don’t see a fallout in the quality of writing.


It’s a lighter week for sure. Tells us what you’re liking or disliking this week.

  1. Anyone else notice that in the marvel knights in the previews they added “with donny cates” in little bold but are highlighting the fact that he’s on it

  2. What ongoings is Cates writing besides Venom? Death of Inhumans is going to end, and I think same with CGR. So as of next year, he will only be writing Venom and Guardians, and overseeing/partially writing Marvel Knights, along with his Indy work. I’m not too worried as of now, but if gets another ongoing, and keeps his Indy side strong, then there could be issues.
