And today we’re just going to get back into it’s another week. We’re nearing the end. I think we’re going to have one more show after this. If, if that and then we will be done until next semester. That’s something we want to tell you guys. If you do love our stuff, we will be back next semester, bringing you more from the film world. So first off, I kind of wanted to touch on Endgame you guys probably sick of us talking about Endgame already with the three parter/ two parter how many how many did we do? This is gonna be the third one, but we’re not going to spend too much time on it. So it’ll be all right. I wanted to talk about it leaping over Titanic in the numbers.
Michael Reza
0:47
Okay, what is that? leaping over Titanic and the number two spot for highest grossing films of all time. So what are your guys thoughts?
KZ
Kianna Znika
0:59
In so last time I checked, it was $6 million away from the top movie, which is avatar. So that’s actually like, Yeah, it sounds like a lot of money to us. But in the film world, that’s not too far.
Michael Reza
1:12
Six, 6 million know that. It can definitely do 6 million.
KZ
Kianna Znika
1:15
Yeah, that can be done like within like this week or next week, if anything, and I know that a lot of people are still re watching it. I know. I’m going to go rewatch it tonight. But I don’t see anyone going to rewatch avatar. So I think avatar does have some competition right here.
Michael Reza
1:30
Yeah, avatar sounds like it’s done making that money.
KZ
Kianna Znika
1:33
Yeah.
Michael Reza
1:34
It did a fantastic job. What about you Derek? What do you think about that number two slot for Endgame?
DC
Derrick Coleman
1:41
It’s going to keep going?
Michael Reza
1:42
Yeah, for sure. I feel like it’s gonna blow away, like blow out Avatar.
KZ
Kianna Znika
1:47
It is, the only thing that makes me sad is that so on film Twitter. Now everyone’s saying like, Well, does anyone remember remember avatar was Avatar you and about avatar was in a good movie. And I’m like, Okay, hold on, like, Endgame was a good movie. But you don’t have to put down another movie. Yes, like avatar was a great movie. I personally really liked it. I do remember the story. I remember the characters. Zoe Saldana must be celebrated right now because she’s in both those movies.
KZ
Kianna Znika
2:15
Yeah, it’s crazy. That movie was it was an iconic film and that changed the film industry on its head so Avatar was a unique obviously there are some reoccurring themes like with other movies but we’re it’s pretty unique and it stands alone.
Michael Reza
2:31
With Atari only for the seven days factor get 2 billion.
Michael Reza
2:39
Oh, really?
DC
Derrick Coleman
2:40
Yeah.
Michael Reza
2:41
Okay, so we’re talking, Okay. That gets an Avatar was a game changing movie. Yeah. So with Endgame, it’s going to be the longevity of it. Which we won’t see that thing out on Netflix or to buy in for probably almost a whole year because it’s going to do that well in theaters still. But yeah, so just wanted to touch base on on Endgame real quick.
Michael Reza
3:07
People are still we’re not sick of the “Love you 3000s yet are we?
KZ
Kianna Znika

No, not really.
Michael Reza

Okay, yeah, Don Cheadle, his character War Machine is going to be gone. Yeah, ’causeI it all comes down to this new wave of superhero films that might come with a new generation of characters.
DC
Derrick Coleman
4:01
They could go back like remember when they did X-Men? They came out with two X-Men and then the third one they went back.
Michael Reza
4:09
Exactly. Yeah, I think they’re gonna. Yeah, something. I think some of these characters is just done though.

Yeah, 22 movies.
KZ
Kianna Znika
4:17
Yeah, Chris Evans like his for sure said like, even in interviews like he’s been spoiling the movie since the beginning. He keeps saying like, no, we’re not coming back like no, this is it. Who is coming back though that I’m super excited about I’m excited about the AsGard-ardians of the Galaxy. Thor is still coming back. And I just love the dynamic between Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy. I like it Then you really funny movie.
DC
Derrick Coleman
4:40
I forgot the name of the kind guys in Gaurdians of the Galaxy.
KZ
Kianna Znika
4:43
Peter Quill?
DC
Derrick Coleman
4:44

Michael Reza
4:48
Bautista…Which one?
DC
Derrick Coleman
4:51
The white guy that
KZ
Kianna Znika Michael Reza
4:53
Star Lord Peter Quill, Yeah, yeah.
Michael Reza
4:57
No, he’s he’s, he’s a staple on that series. Oh, yeah. Yeah, they probably love them. They’re Chris Pratt’s awesome in everything he does. So... I do know that. There is a plan to do six more movies, post end game. So obviously we have Spider-Man. We’ll have the next Guardians of the Galaxy.
Michael Reza
5:19
Widow Prequel, Black Panther...
DC
Derrick Coleman
5:21
Two Black Panthers. Yeah,
Michael Reza
5:23
I mean, just in the next year, a couple years. We’re going to see the first one the first sequel, first. And then they’re going to do something called the Eternals which is a which is the kind of sub faction of the Marvel Universe people are excited about. And then there’s one there’s one more...
Michael Reza
5:45
Well, now I’m drawing a blank. But anyway, yeah, so we’re going to see six more Marvel films after Endgame which is kind of exciting and not to mention that Spider-Man teaser, that trailer came out just this past weekend and it was phenomenal I cannot wait for this one so now guys
KZ
Kianna Znika
6:03
You already know it’s going to touch your heart everyone who watched and game and if you haven’t seen that game by now you really need to watch it because the spoiler ban did get lifted already
Michael Reza
6:12
Yeah. Your cost your time if you haven’t seen endgame Then who are you really though?
KZ
Kianna Znika
6:18
This trailer is filled with spoilers
DC
Derrick Coleman
6:20
I cant wait for Dark Phoenix.
Michael Reza
6:23
Oh yeah, we’re talking about x men now. Dark Phoenix is going to be intense but going back to Spider-Man real quick, Zendaya who is our new Marie Jane we got we got the new Spider Man suit there’s so many things going on in this trailer. I was like Jesus they showed us almost the entire movie with it with Sandman and just other characters.
Michael Reza
6:47
What did you think about his suit?
Michael Reza
6:51
it’s awesome. I love that. I love that Iron Man-esque suit. Yeah, it’s awesome.
Michael Reza
6:56
Oh, and then discussing the multiverse in the trailer. So that’s opening a lot of doors
Michael Reza
7:02
Yeah, there’s so many dynamics going on with the Spider-Man movie it’s crazy.But yeah, I mean that that’s not that’s going to be coming soon right we’re not we’re going to see that within the next month and a half or something like that Sunday night. Yeah, yeah, it’s not too far far away.
KZ
Kianna Znika
7:18
And then it’s going to be an important movie in the development of Spider-Man because when we’ve seen Tom Holland in Spider-Man he’s still in high school. He’s still the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. But now I believe that end up seeing the trailer to this is going to be the movie where everyone’s pushing him and saying you’re not just a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man you were in space you fought with the Avengers, your real superhero. So we’re gonna see a lot of maturity a lot of growth coming from here.
KZ
Kianna Znika
7:43
Yeah, a lot of character development. A lot of Yeah, a lot of responsibility. It sounds like from the trailer. And it’s true he has been seen more than more than anyone he knows around him in a lifetime. So
Michael Reza
7:59
evolving Spider-Man will be kind of cool to see and hopefully they can keep it on the right track because other Spider-Man franchises although good in their own right in their own little ways. This Spider-Man is the most all around whereas Yeah. Whereas the last spider man whose name is escaping me right now and you got Andrew Garfield was a great Peter Parker. No, he’s a great Spider-Man. And Toby Maguire was a very good Peter Parker. Yeah, so now with Tom Holland. We get to see all of that come together very nicely. And with storylines that kind of make more sense and aren’t cheesy.
KZ
Kianna Znika
8:39
Yeah.
Michael Reza
8:40
AKA like emo Spider-Man.
KZ
Kianna Znika
8:42
So yes, definitely the best Spider-Man by far I feel like yeah, I guess with Andrew Garfield there’s a little bit of attitude problems and he kind of just wasn’t in the mode right now. Tom Holland seems like a more stable and honest character as far as his his passion for the project.
Michael Reza
8:42
Yeah.And and there’s no debate about it took a Stan Lee himself. I don’t have the exact quote, but Stan Lee has said that Tom Holland is what he imagined Spider-M an to be. Yeah, Tom Holland just captures it perfectly. And the fact that Tom Holland has been wanting to play Spider-Man for so many years and then got the chance to play Spider-Man not only in its own little trilogy, but he got to play Spider-Man in the MCU you know, fighting with the Avengers and everything.
KZ
Kianna Znika
9:33
Yeah, he’s Peter Parker. He’s basically is Peter Parker.
Michael Reza
9:37
Yeah, so all right, now switching gears a little bit. Everyone if you’re a Sega fan and you love video games or have just an affinity for it, even the cartoon Sonic the Hedgehog is getting it’s live action chance now coming later this year, which is crazy that I think it releases in October/November.
KZ
Kianna Znika
9:58
Something like that
Michael Reza
10:00
And let’s be honest guys those first cuts of of Sonic’s character with CGI were pretty rough. I don’t know he’s he had long legs he had odd human teeth.
KZ
Kianna Znika
10:13
It was just a kid in a pajama.
Michael Reza
10:20
And then we got Jim Carrey one of the greatest of all time playing Dr. Robotnik need him to be a little chunkier to just to be honest does let’s realize the role because he got his just playing Jim Carrey at this point, but...
KZ
Kianna Znika
10:31
I do like his character design though. I will say that out of the entire trailer. That’s good. Out of the entire trailer Jim Carrey was my favorite part because again, I love Jim Carrey and and just the mustache him like going into heat like becomes bald. Yeah, I was there for it. That was the only thing like carrying the entire movie on his back.
Michael Reza
10:52
You could kind of feel you can it there definitely is a resemblance. And they did a good job in that sense. But they did not do a good job with with the actual star of the show Sonic the Hedgehog looking funky.
DC
Derrick Coleman
11:05
It look like like a Buid-a-Bear.
Michael Reza
11:08
It did look like a Build-a-Bear. But Funny thing is that social media and the internet are still undefeated. If you didn’t know that already, the people spoke. The people spoke and they did not like the design like the rest of us. And some graphic designers got together and created a more look alike version of Sonic and it’s so dope that the director himself acknowledged it and he said and he apologize for the hacky job, I guess. And we got to, we got to see a live like, Hey, we’re going to take a look at this. And we’re going to make it better. And they have a lot of work to do. Because like I said, it comes out in the fall of this year. So they’re gonna have to be putting in work.
KZ
Kianna Znika
11:56
So I will say this and I’ll speak for the animators on Twitter. If you complain about the sonic design on Twitter, you better show up to see this movie ’cause these animators are working harder now because of your complaints. So if they’re working harder now working overtime and you still don’t give this much this money any movie, this movie any money shame on you, you just made these people work harder for nothing. This is a kids movie.
Michael Reza
12:26
You were just trolling for Twitter.
KZ
Kianna Znika
12:28
Yes. So now Yeah, put your money where your mouth is these people are working harder
DC
Derrick Coleman
12:33
And if any ouf you designers want to reach out to reach out wide, reach us at Wide Shot podcast.
Michael Reza
12:42
Yeah, we appreciate the fact that that the graphic designers who took the liberty to to make it better and get it out there. We appreciate that because we don’t want to see I don’t even know if I would have gone to see that movie.
12:57
I would not have
Michael Reza
12:59
It just looked too brutal. But the new design from what was sent looks much better. Looks like Sonic has the shorter body with the longer legs. Those red those red running shoes are are popping.
DC
Derrick Coleman
13:14
So you guys remember the cartoon?
Michael Reza
13:17
Yes. I love the cartoon. Nice to have one of the episodes.
KZ
Kianna Znika
13:20
Oh my god.
KZ
Kianna Znika
13:20
Yeah, on tape. Remember those VCRs? But uh, yeah.Sonic the Hedgehog I hope I do hope we see it a little glimpse because if this movie flops there’s no way it gets a number two. So we’re going to see Tails are going to see Knuckles.Who knows who knows what we’re going to get...
KZ
Kianna Znika
13:39
anything maybe just a snippet because I feel like we would have seen it in the trailer.
KZ
Kianna Znika
13:43
Yeah, I really hope it’s a big Tails I like tells a lot. If you play the game it’s Oh yeah, I recommend going back somehow. And like getting a Sega Genesis and blowing in that cartridge. Clean cleaning that cartridge out and playing that game because that is classic.
KZ
Kianna Znika
14:02
So my hearing a potential gaming podcast?
KZ
Kianna Znika
14:05
Are we gonna, yeah, make something happen? But yeah, that’s so that’s kind of all I wanted to touch on with those with the movies, but the Met Gala was this week this past week. And I don’t know if you guys want to talk about that. We saw some amazing outfits and some risky outfits. Lady Gaga was doing some crazy stuff. Katy Perry wore a hamburger.
KZ
Kianna Znika
14:31
I thought it was Chen Lee or anything. But Ezra Miller just blew the crowd away. That’s I wish I can somehow show the picture through this podcast. I’m so bad with words and supposed to be a writer. But he just did an amazing job. Same with all the actors from American Horror Story that is Lady Gaga included who was one of the hosts for the Met Gala. Harry Style was as well and he did go from the music world to the acting world.
KZ
Kianna Znika
15:00
I forgot his name Brian Porter’s his name from American Horror Story. He did an amazing job. So I want to like you know, say how proud I am a proud of Yes, but how grateful I am for the people who did show up in theme. Because if you’re going to the Oscars, yes, wear the black dress, wear the black suit, whatever. Okay, but if you’re going to a fashion show, and it has a theme, you should just not be allowed to enter if you’re not following the theme.
Michael Reza
15:33
So not only is that your chance to like, make your mark in that in that event. Like it’s a big deal. When you see Nikki Minaj and like cardi B wearing giant freakin like dresses with long What do you call them?
KZ
Kianna Znika
15:48
Train...
KZ
Kianna Znika
15:48
Trains Yeah, it’s you’re trying to make a statement. And yeah, for me, I watch all this stuff. I don’t watch it live I watch I’ll watch through Instagram and I will go through the various channels for it. But I mean, I still enjoy seeing like some of the crazy outfits that people wear. Donald Glover always represent and with the with the nice suit. Anderson .Paak isn’t a movie guy, but just awesome, awesome outfits that you’ve seen all night and it’s a night for our stars to kind of be out there even more than some of them may be weird already.
KZ
Kianna Znika
16:25
Yeah, and they’re actors. Like if you’re embarrassed kind of shy you’re an actor just act like you’re someone else dressed up in the theme, Okay.
Michael Reza
16:36
Don’t be lazy.
KZ
Kianna Znika
16:37
Don’t be boring.
Michael Reza
16:38
Yeah, I mean, I would I would if it was me and I can I’m not I’m a very traditional person as far as what I wear goes but I think I’d take my shot and wear something crazier at the Met Gala you know maybe one day
DC
Derrick Coleman
16:52
Don’t be Kanye West he just wear like a jacket like a $40 jacket.
KZ
Kianna Znika
16:56
Yeah,
Michael Reza
16:57
Even even Frank Ocean Frank Ocean wars a word like a Gucci bomber. Yeah. anorak jacket and even posted him sounds like the valet Is that the party?
KZ
Kianna Znika
17:09
So yeah. Um, but it’s always dope to see see what the stars are going to come out trotting with with the fashion so if you guys have anything else to add, as far as the movies go, we got Aladdin coming up this month will probably preview that maybe next week. The 24th. Guys the moment we’ve been waiting for. It may be cringey it may may not be. I’m a little scared.
KZ
Kianna Znika
17:09
Yeah.
KZ
Kianna Znika
17:34
Yeah, so, just because something could be live action. Should it be?
Michael Reza
17:40
Exactly... Well, but now they’re talking about other things like they’re not seeing if the Lion King should get a redesign, but I think the design on the Lion King, I think is fine. That’s what we want realistic at point.
Michael Reza
17:55
All right. I think that’s it. Y’all been listening to the watch out podcast. My name is Mike. My name is Kiana. I’m Derek. See you next time. Thanks.
