It’s Just Some Random Guy posted his 100th VIDEO this week.

If you haven’t seen any of these before, the videos started as a spoof of the PC/Mac commercials using Marvel and DC characters. These shorts evolved into two serial movies, After Hours and Happy Hour. In the serials, the action centers around the adventures of all the major DC and Marvel heroes and villains as they kick back and relax at Stan’s Place, a super hero bar owned by Stan Lee. The characters also comment on the state of their movie franchises and parody other popular summer movie offerings.

What’s so surprising about these videos is the amount of emotional depth IJSRG is able to generate using nothing but action figures. I dare anyone to to watch Twas the Dark Night Before Christmas and not tear up just a little.

When not making parody videos, It’s Just Some Random Guy and Girl are creating promotional videos for various Comic Cons (and the Ontario PGA Golf Merchandising Show – HUH?).

If you are a comic fan, it’s worth the time to sit down and watch these videos. These are great stories filled with stellar character moments – my favorite beingĀ  Green Goblin busting out singing Summertime. Even if comics aren’t your thing, pop some popcorn and settle in for a great ride. I promise you will bust a gut laughing.

I hope the series goes on for a long time. Keep up the good work and again, congratulations!

The action continues with Zero Hour.

Well, it’s official! The Summer Movie Season is here!

It’s Just Some Random Guy has just posted his first I’m a Marvel and I’m a DC parody. If you haven’t seen these before, or just feel the need to fall on your butt laughing, check the rest of IJSRG’s genius parodies.

PS. I love Deadpool.

Batman 3 - Coming in 2012Yup!

It doesn’t have a name! It doesn’t have a script! Heck, it hasn’t even started casting yet, but we have a release date!

Christopher Nolan’s magnum opus in the Batman universe will be released on July 20th, 2012.

This doesn’t give Nolan a lot of time to complete the movie, especially considering that work still ongoing on Inception (release date: July 16th, 2010) according to CHUD.com.

So now, the big question becomes, who is going to be the villain? Thus far, the movies have been pretty firmly based in this version of reality, with the most fantastical bad guy being The Scarecrow, and he wasn’t that unrealistic of a character. So, does this mean we’ll see a more technologically enhanced villain like Mr. Freeze (Patrick Steward, please?) or a skills based villain like Catwoman or The Riddler?

I’m sure the decision won’t be an easy one. Heath Ledger left some pretty big shoes to fill. It would be interesting to be in on the conversations between David Goyer and Nolan, trying to figure out where to take things.

Personally, I’d like to see Catwoman as she’s always been a favorite. And that leads us to the next big question: “Who to cast?” Some fanboys are leaning towards Angelina Jolie or Megan Fox, but that’s too obvious for my taste. What about Anne Hathaway or Amy Adams? Or go the completely unexpected route and cast Dianna Agron or Amanda Seyfried.

Thoughts? Opinions? Aspersions?
