Oh dear. Just when I thought I might have been spared from yet another lame adaptation of one of the best superhero comic book stories of all time.
After surprising most observers with a worldwide box office of $783 million (against a $58 million budget), it was inevitable that a Deadpool sequel would be produced and fast – within two years!
Entertainment Weekly provides a first look at the upcoming X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix.
The reason why Fox’s The Gifted is resonating with us while CW’s slate of DC superhero shows continue to bore and annoy is simple – the stakes seem real and urgent for the mutant characters.
It’s time to stop being surprised about how good The Gifted is! Episode 3 “eXodus” continued the standard of excellence thus far experienced with this well-written mutant series.
The New Mutants director Josh Broome described his movie as a horror film. Based on the first trailer, it certainly is!
With The Gifted, there are now three Marvel-based TV series – the other two being Agents of SHIELD and Legion – that have surpassed the entire slate of CW DC Comics-based series.
Expectations were predictably low for The Gifted, the latest Fox mutant TV series. Based on the synopsis, it appeared similar to Heroes and the first season of Agents of SHIELD. Thankfully, it exceeded our expectations!
Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
It seems the only reason for this trailer to exist is the *SNIKT!* at the end. Yes, so we are teased that Wolverine will be in X-Men: Apocalypse.
So, in case you’ve overlooked this in the face of incessant buzz and excitement over the Batman v Superman & Captain America films, there is actually another tentpole superhero movie coming out in 2016 viz. X-Men Apocalypse.
Alright, let me get it out there right off the bat. I have never liked Deadpool. Mainly because… Rob Liefeld. Same reason I never liked Cable. Gimmicky characters without substance. Breaking the fourth wall by itself isn’t enough to mask the fact that Deadpool is a poor rip-off of Slade Continue Reading
X-Men in the 80s! Continuing the new timeline established by X-Men: Days of Future Past, our merry band of mutants face off with their biggest challenge yet – mutant prime, Apocalypse! Thankfully, in this first trailer, our villain (Oscar Issac, above) looks frighteningly faithful to the original and that should Continue Reading
(Note: This review is filled with spoilers. Mainly because I find it hard to believe that after reading this, you would be insane enough to still want to watch this turkey!) This Fantastic Four reboot never had a chance. From the get-go, geeks hated it. From director Josh Trank boasting Continue Reading
The Merc with the Mouth gets his own movie! And it certainly looks like Ryan Reynolds was born to play Deadpool – though am not sure if that’s much of a compliment. And judging from the red band trailer, it’s everything you expected a Deadpool movie to be. Not quite Continue Reading
Last time out, Fox botched its characterisation of Dr Doom – one of the most iconic of super-villains – and that, and it’s rather campy approach marked its first attempt at adapting Marvel’s Fantastic Four as a failure. Watching this final trailer for this FF reboot, it is clear that the Continue Reading
Well, with the successes of CW’s DC superheroes, it was inevitable that Fox would jump on the bandwagon with their stable of mutant stars. Guess Marvel will counter with New Inhumans, eh??? Source: Fox Mints ‘The New Mutants’ X-Men Spinoff; ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ Helmer Josh Boone To Continue Reading
Total Film has exclusive new pix from the Fantastic Four reboot. No standard FF costumes for this movie it seems!
Well, it’s been slim pickings regarding the Fantastic Four reboot even after the release of the teaser trailer. But Empire has first pictures and here they are! It’s Reed Richards (Miles Teller) in some kind of astronaut suit with Tim Blake Nelson (who is playing the Mole Man) in the Continue Reading
Finally, the first teaser trailer for the new Fantastic Four movie arrives and frankly, it’s looks fine to me. After all the trepidation of the supposedly ‘un-superheroic’ approach of the reboot, the movie comes across like a Warren Ellis comic book, specifically Ultimate Fantastic Four! Of course, the movie could still suck Continue Reading
For a scifi-superhero movie that is slated for release later this year (August), virtually no advance information of the new Fantastic Four movie is available online except a couple of interviews, a plot summary and this fuzzy photograph (above) of the cast when shooting wrapped last year! Yes, this reboot Continue Reading
X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Directed by Bryan Singer. Starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and many more. Well, for once, the hype was justified. X-Men: Days of Future Past is no doubt one of the biggest comic book movie adaptations ever, not Continue Reading
