Preacher

There will be a Preacher TV show coming to AMC. How cool is that?! If you ware unaware, Preacher was a comic book series that was part of DC Comics’ Vertigo series. Meaning that it was not superhero based, but more adult and set in a tone that allowed a lot more violence, nudity and cursing. However, superpowers still existed, and the Preacher series was one of their more popular titles for a long time. The title was written by Garth Ennis, who is not shy at showing tons of blood and sex regularly.

Irish Vampire

The new TV show is going to be given the Walking Dead treatment and will more than likely not have anywhere near as much cursing involved, but we can look forward to a lot of violence. So that is definitely a plus! The main character is Jesse Custer, who is as the title suggests, a Preacher. However he is possessed by an entity called Genesis and has the power to control people by voice command. He also kills his congregation and goes on cross country adventure in search of God and to make God pay for his atrocities to mankind. It’s a pretty intense series.

Check out the trailer below. The series sets to air on AMC in Summer 2016.

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.

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.

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

Star Wars

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.

Jason

Antman and Wasp

Unfortunately I will not be able to attend NYCC because of some issues, but there will be a lot of announcements that will be made regarding many comic book and geeky genres. A new AntMan and Wasp movie is not technically a NYCC announcement, but I am sure many other announcements will be made soon. AntMan and Wasp will air on July 6, 2018. Which seems like an eternity away, but it will be here before you know it. There have been 3 more movies that will be announced, to which will probably be announced over the coming weekend. I’m totally stoked for that!

Avengers

If you are unaware, Wasp is the female counter part to Ant Man. She has similar shrinking powers but also has wings that allow her to fly and shoot out stinger blasts. The blasts and scope of her powers range from writer to writer and also depends on her current predicament. Her usefulness also change from story to story as well. Sometimes she’s an incredible badass that is essential to completing a mission, other times, she’s the first to be knocked out. So far, Marvel has very few female heroes, but the few that we have had, have been great. Hopefully, Wasp will be just as awesome. One last note, Wasp was also one of the original five Avengers in the comics.

Reese Witherspoon Clone Daughter 2

Is this what happens when you clone yourself? Reese Witherspoon’s daughter is beautiful, and has a great future in front of her, but wow! She’s Reese’s exact duplicate. I feel like she impregnated herself somewhere along the way and no one even noticed.

Reese Witherspoon Clone Daughter

This reminds of Back to the Future where Biff’s grandson and his great great grandfather look just like him. If cloning were to become a common place, this is the future.

Griff Biff Bufford

Straight Hercules

Marvel is just trying to make Hercules look like badass-sexy daddy-eye candy-scruffy-super hottie- LITERAL Greek God that gives all gay geeks huge boners. Check out the newest variant cover of Hercules #1, drawn by Russell Dauterman and Matt Wilson..

Hercules and Wolverine

Holy fuck, are they seriously saying that this character is completely straight? According to Marvel Editor-in-Chief -Axel Alonso- Hercules is completely heterosexual. He stated this on ComicBookResources.com. I covered this once before and pointed out the idiotic notion that Hercules is completely heterosexual. Somehow his bisexuality, which has been hinted at in both the comic and in Greek mythology repeatedly, is being ignored. And now this cover was made. Look at it. He is so bisexual! I feel like the artists are intentionally either queer baiting or maybe they will make the character bisexual in the comic and Axel Alonso has changed his mind. I hope that both are the case. I would love to be able to read a Marvel Comic with a bisexual leading man.

man bun

I need to point out, everyone is making a big deal about Hercules’ man-bun. I don’t see the big deal in that. I think he’s sporting it pretty darn well in that image.

Raul Castillo Flamingo
Yes, there is another psychotic villain in the DC Universe that many do not know exists and this one is called Flamingo who first appeared in Batman #666. This character has been considered to be gay by some comic book readers, but has never been confirmed or denied. This is simply based on his appearance and mannerisms. His full name is Eduardo Flamingo. In actuality, he is extremely dangerous and has mental breakdowns in the few appearances he has made in Gotham. His sexuality is the least about this character that anyone should be thinking about. He’s eaten the faces off of women according to the Batman and Robin comic that was written by Grant Morrison. And now according to Variety.com, his character will be brought to the Gotham TV show this season and played by Looking star, Raul Castillo.
Looking

Raul Castillo is a straight man, but he’s gained more fame in gay media from playing in the role of Ricardo “Richie” Donado Ventura in the ill-fated HBO show Looking. Playing a crazed hitman takes a lot of talent to pull off and I think that Castillo will be able to pull this off. He will have to give this his own take as Flamingo has never been portrayed on screen up to this point. So he can work from the ground up and make the character all his own. It should be interesting.
Gotham
 

Gotham’s ratings have remained decent and this season it appears to be picking up steam. There will be the introduction of a lot of new characters and storylines for the young Jim Gordon to handle without the aid of any vigilantes. Raul’s depiction of Flamingo will take place on episode 9, season 2 later this year.

Muppet Show

With a lot of hype over the past several months, The Muppets premiere today, 9/22/2015 on ABC. Many of the promos have shown more adult tendencies towards its characters that appeal to a wide range of audiences. More specifically towards adults, but still having a lot of the basic child characteristics that originally made the Muppets so popular in the first place.

Million Puppet

Unfortunately not everyone is excited about this new rendition of Jim Henson’s creations having a new show. The organization known as the organization known as One Million Moms who have been shown to be vastly conservative in the past regarding all forms of media and advertisements, released this statement about the Muppets premiere:

“ABC hopes children watch the show and predict they would enjoy some of the humor, but 1MM would disagree. It is not the show it once was. ABC has ruined “The Muppets.” How many parents want to explain the punchline of sexually charged jokes to young children?
Many parents unknowingly will let their children watch an episode only to find out its perverted nature too late, unless they are alerted ahead of time. 1MM and others need to get the word out to families to avoid this program at all costs.”

Miss Piggy

With that being said, the One Million Mom (1MM?) literally just informed all kids of the show that their parents do NOT want them to watch, even though the factor of the show being about Muppets already gave them a bit of notability but also gave a huge amounts of publicity to a fledgling show that may have had doubts to its success. Way to go One Million Moms! You just helped secure the success of this show.

Gonzo

Let’s be clear, the Muppets will be more adult, somewhat. Sexual references will be made, that’s been clear. Relationships will also be made, and from the promos, it looks like Kermit may be in the center of several issues that many adults have been a part of from the beginning of forever. Current events will be discussed and the drama of politics may even be brought up. But this is a prime time TV show. What did 1MM think was going to happen? This show does not appear to be geared towards young children anyway. It is on at during Primetime and looks like it is geared towards adults, young adults and teenagers. Regardless though, if younger children were to watch the show, is it so awful that parents actually TALK to their children about some of these references and explain what is being discussed?

Statler and Waldorf

On another note, this will not be the play Avenue Q and I do not think that we will see Muppets have sex on screen. More than likely, Kermit and the gang will be in some sexual situations but actual sex shown on a non-cable TV show, very unlikely. Innuendos will more than likely be made, but is that new? Innuendos have been done on TV on both adult and kid’s shows, again, since forever. Look at the Flintstones, look at Animaniancs, look any any cartoon from any kids show made in this century. It is going to happen.


I am excited to see the Muppets and I am watching the show tonight! Are you going to watch it or do you have it DVR’d to watch later? Usually I do not watch stuff live, but I have a strange motivation to watch it right away for some reason.
