Black Panther‘s astonishing domestic box office numbers for its opening 4-days is $245 million, which actually betters Justice League‘s lifetime US box office of $228 million!
There is much to admire about Black Panther, Marvel’s latest addition to its cinematic universe but in the final analysis, the story is plagued with the usual blockbuster plot holes.
The first trailer for the upcoming sequel to the thoroughly enjoyable Ant-Man has arrived!
Iron Man marks Marvel’s first self-developed and self-financed film (in a ten-film deal with Paramount) and the way that this Jon Favreau-directed, Robert Downey-starred blockbuster translates the comic book so successfully onto the big screen augers well for the other Marvel films to come.
It’s hard to imagine now, but there was a time – 17 years ago – when a superhero movie was not only a rarity but a bit of a joke.
This is what superhero geeks have been waiting for ever since Thanos was teased in that Avengers post-credit scene.
Director Taika Waititi attempts to graft the tone of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies onto Thor : Ragnarok but it’s all painfully superficial.
Once the Marvel Cinematic Universe was up and running, it was only a matter of time before an adaptation of the teen-centric comic Runaways would become reality.
When news was announced about the cast for Captain America : Civil War, folks starting referring to the sequel as Avengers 2.5. But based on the first trailer, it’s clearly a Cap movie – it’s just that Cap’s quest for justice for his friend Bucky Barnes (The Winter Soldier) leads him to war with Iron Man and his team.
Which is a clever twist to how the original comic book story played it. It’s about Cap being loyal to his best friend in the face of virtually impossible odds. What a story this is going to be! And we get a first look at Black Panther too! 2016 is going to be an amazing superhero movie year.
