“Thor: Ragnarok” Alum Wants to Bring Beta Ray Bill to Life

Jake Morrison, the VFX lead for the recent Marvel Cinematic Universe hit Thor: Ragnarok, says that if another Thor movie gets made, he would like the challenge of bringing Beta Ray Bill to life on the big screen.

“I think I would love to do something with Beta Ray Bill, having been in the Thor universe for a good while,” he said, and added, “I think he’s such a cool character, and the Walt Simonson run in the comics, that one, that iconic cover with Beta Ray Bill in full regalia, clashing with the Mighty Thor. I think that’s an immensely cool moment.”

Beta Ray Bill is a genetically engineered alien who wields power from the Norse gods—i.e., the sort of wonderfully nonsensical character who could only exist in a place like the Marvel Universe. Initially a rival of Thor’s, he too proved worthy to wield the magic hammer Mjolnir, but was ultimately given his own separate weapon, Stormbreaker, instead. The two have since become staunch allies.

As Morrison notes, Beta Ray Bill got an Easter egg in Thor: Ragnarok, where a statue of his face adorned the tower of Sakaar like a gargoyle. It is also worth noting that his species, the Korbinites, canonically exist in the MCU, according to the tie-in comic
Thor: The Dark World Prelude.

Thor’s actor, Chris Hemsworth, as well as director Taika Waititi have both expressed interest in making a fourth installment to this sub-series, despite Marvel Studios traditionally stopping at a trilogy. If so, could ol’ Bill put in an appearance? Some have even suggested him becoming a protagonist, given that he has his own cosmic adventures separate from the Odinson. For now, fans will have to wait and see.

Black Panther Ready to Pounce on $500M

Riding a wave of good will, Black Panther is getting ready to make $500 million at the box office. The movie has already broken The Avengers’ Wednesday earnings record of $13.6 million with its own $14.5 million showing, an impressive feat for a movie released in the middle of February. The opening weekend’s $201 million box office also set the new record for February releases, beating 2016’s runaway superhero hit, Deadpool.

The movie’s runaway financial success has shown that the world is open and even hungry for superhero action movies of a different stripe, ones that don’t have to be simplistic fun or star Tony Stark. Defying archaic ideas on Hollywood marketability, the movies thrives at the box office while starring people of color and that might brush up against real world injustices such as institutional racism, nationalist isolationism, and the aftermath of colonialism. The film’s star, Chadwick Boseman, has proven himself to as a leading man able to carry a blockbuster in the role of T’Challa while Michael B. Jordan breaks away from his good guy typecast to play the sympathetic yet dangerous Killmonger.

While certainly not the first movie to feature a superhero of African descent (Spawn, Steel, Blade, and Catwoman all come to mind), Black Panther is, by far, the most high profile and successful to date. The titular character is an old Marvel mainstay, debuting in Fantastic Four #52 by Stan Lee (who naturally makes a cameo in the movie) and Jack Kirby. Since being released on the 16th, the movie’s positive image black empowerment has been seen as a beacon of pride and hope for children of African descent. Hopefully, Hollywood gets the message.

Joss Whedon Wanted to Adapt Batgirl’s Original Comic

Joss Whedon has officially stepped down from plans to direct a Batgirl movie for the DC Extended Universe, but now word has leaked out that he was considering doing an adaptation of the character’s first comic book story.

Fans suspect several factors to explain Whedon’s exit from the project. Though he is well-known for creating nuanced and action-oriented female characters (mostly notably with Buffy the Vampire Slayer), many believe that a female-led film franchise should have a female director, especially after the success of Patty Jenkin’s Wonder Woman. His failure to completely fix Justice League may well have also played a part. However, Whedon’s own stated reason is writer’s block: excited though he was to create the film, he could not figure out a good story to tell with the character.

According to Variety, however, Whedon had at least vague plans to try and adapt “The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl!,” which saw her premiere. In that story, Barbara Gordon (daughter of Batman’s ally Commissioner Jim Gordon) attends a charity masquerade ball in a female version of Batman’s iconic costume. At the event, however, she sees Bruce Wayne attacked by the villain Killer Moth and jumps in to help him. Her aid gives him enough time to slip away and change into Batman. This ultimately leads to the pair, plus Robin, uncovering the evildoer’s lair and defeating him.

This would have been an interesting choice to adapt, as so far the DCEU has taken most of its cues from the New 52, and an origin story would have taken another step into the franchise’s past. It remains to be seen if this film will ultimately get made, by whom, and what its new story line will be.

Nick Vertucci And His Real Estate Academy Help Individuals Find Success

Nick Vertucci believes that the past that an individual has does not have to dictate the future that the same person has. He believes that a person can rise above what their past was and make a good life for their self. He lost his father when he was young and he grew up with a mother who worked hard to provide for him and the rest of his family. He spent time as an adult living out of a van because he did not have the money for a place to stay. He has come through much and yet he has found success.

While in the midst of a hard time in his adult life, Nick Vertucci was invited to attend a real estate seminar with a friend. He agreed to go, and the information that he received at the seminar changed his life. He listened to what the speaker was sharing, even those things that he didn’t understand well, and he learned from that speaker. He was drawn in by what was being shared and he knew that he was going to make it. After the seminar, this man began a journey of collecting information regarding real estate work.

Nick Vertucci is inspired by his own past and he wants to help others change their lives right now. He believes that anyone can get started in the real estate world and he hopes to help others like himself find a way to make a good income. He vowed that he would help others once he had made it big, and he created a real estate school of sorts so that he could do that. This man is the Founder and the CEO of the Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy. This academy is used to educate those looking to be successful in the world of real estate.

Joe Arpaio, The Worst America’s Sherriff Pardoned

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are two outspoken journalists who were co-founders of New Times Publication. Ten years ago saw the arrest of the two gentlemen in unclear circumstances under the former sheriff’s reign of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio.

The case which was deemed as the Arpaio Saga came about after the New Times Newspaper published on the sins of Arpaio. What’s, more, Larkin and Lacey’s leadership at New Times was marked with continuous and persistent uncovering of the scandals that led to the end of Arpaio ending of his 24-year era as a sheriff.

Arpaio’s Rule in Maricopa County

Joe Arpaio’s tenure as a sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona, was marked by a period of what seemed like an endless reign of an unstoppable villain. Arpaio first came to power as a sheriff in 1992 and reinvented himself as the toughest American sheriff before his arrest in 2007. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: https://www.facebook.com/jimlarkin53 and http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427427/Jim_Larkin

Nonetheless, after a decade of serving in jail, Joe Arpaio is now a free man due to an apparent pardon from his long-time friend who is none other than Donald Trump in what is believed to be a favor for a favor. It was evident that Arpaio campaigned for Trump which is what might have led to the pardoning the Arpaio. Susan R. Bolton, a U.S. district judge, confirmed it when she validated the pardon of the United States’ worst sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Again, as a result of his corrupt leadership ways, there was a diversion of more than $100 of jail funds, inmate’s suicides, the rise of sex-crime cases, beating deaths, ill-treatment of Latinos, and many other crimes.

Again, Even though the sheriff was convicted, Lacey and many other still believe that the justice system under-performed their duties as the ex-convict was only jailed for disregarding the judge’s order. He was not held responsible for the many deaths that occurred, the prisoner’s abuse, nor the torture that happened.

The reason given for their arrest was unveiling in the Phoenix New Times that there were plans of offering subpoena to journalists and insult- related cases of the United States Constitution. Nevertheless, the business partners were released within 24 hours following a public uproar.

Also, it was discovered that the grand jury warrants were fake and were organized by Arpaio. As a result, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were awarded $ 3.75 million by the Maricopa County in 2013 to settle the lawsuit against them.

Additionally, from the money that the two received, they founded the Lacey, and Larkin Frontera Fund Targeted to Latin- American settlement in Arizona.

David Giertz Spouts Off On Some Important Aspects of Retirement Planning

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, regarding Social Security, President of National Financial distribution of sales and organization, David Giertz was asked why financial advisors were not speaking to their clients about social security. David Giertz stated that financial advisors should address the issue of social security with their clients. He stated that many Financial Advisors are not addressing the issue of Social Security and it is important that their clients are informed about such a serious issue.

A Survey was conducted by Nationwide Financial Retirement Institute among retired people and those who were going to retire in 10 years. According to David Giertz, an advisor’s responsibility is to discuss with their clients their financial future in relation to their Social Security Benefits. Among those people who were surveyed, four out of five stated they would get rid of the present advisor and replace them with someone else who would discuss social security with them.

According to David Giertz when asked why advisors would avoid the topic of Social Security with their clients, he stated that Social Security was a complicated subject to discuss. There are 27 hundred rules outlined in the Social Security Handbook that is very complicated and hard to understand. Many Financial Advisors do not fully understand the complexities of the Social Security Rules and Regulations.

According to David Gietz, people who accept Social Security early have the potential of losing up to 300,000 dollars over a period of 25 years, that is approximately 12,000 per year or 1,000 dollars monthly. Because retired people stand to lose some of their Social Security income, a good Financial Advisor will help them to understand the Social Security process.

David Gietz is a registered Broker with FINRA and has 32 years experience in the financial field of sales and organization. He is well versed in the financial field and has passed four exams. He works with large brokerage companies and engages in securities negotiation representing patrons.
