There’s no doubt that Warner Bros/DC has been lagging behind Marvel Studios in bringing successful adaptations of their properties to the big screen.
After the dark and heavy Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp delivers light-hearted comedic superhero action to MCU fans.
Before the release of Star Wars (never “A New Hope”) in 1977, there had only been a couple of successful movie franchises viz. James Bond and Planet of the Apes.
Ironically, the groundwork for the enormous success of Avengers : Infinity War was laid almost EIGHTY years ago by Marvel’s main comic book rival DC Comics in Justice Society of America.
To be honest I had reservations about Infinity War.
The first trailer for the upcoming sequel to the thoroughly enjoyable Ant-Man has arrived!
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.
Everybody loved the new Spider-Man reboot. We are no exception!
First proper look at Marvel Studios’s adaptation of Jack Kirby’s Black Panther as the teaser trailer is released by Marvel Entertainment.
Considering how amazing and surprising the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie was, when it was released in 2014, it is perhaps shocking (or maybe not) that its sequel matches not only its sheer entertainment quality but builds on the characters and relationships introduced in the original.
It’s no secret that Guardians of the Galaxy is one of our favourite comic book movie adaptations of all time and we have been eagerly anticipating the sequel due in 2017.
If the critics are to be believed, Captan America: Civil War is the best superhero movie ever made and Batman V Superman is the worst. But what is really at issue here? One is a Marvel movie and the other isn’t. It’s really as simple as that. Simply put, every Continue Reading
Synopsis Differences arise between Avengers,Captain America (Steve Rogers) and Iron Man (Tony Stark), over the proper response to the Government’s demands for oversight over superhuman activities. Then, Rogers’ best friend Bucky Barnes (aka Winter Soldier) is implicated in a terrorist act and Rogers has to choose between Barnes or Stark, Continue Reading
Marvel Zombies will not allow any other opinion other than everything that Marvel Studios does is golden. Fact is Iron Man 2 & 3 were poor and Thor: The Dark World was even worse.
I suppose it’s something we somewhat take for granted but it’s hard to believe that Ant-Man is the 12th Marvel Studios superhero movie! The mere fact that I can write the words “superhero movie” is already a minor miracle considering that these were rare once upon a time. So I Continue Reading
Ant-Man opens on 16th July and might be a good indicator of where Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is headed. This new international trailer (from Japan) highlights a little bit of our protagonist Scott Lang’s back story and also some history regarding Hank Pym and the Ant-Man Continue Reading
According to Box Office Mojo, “Avengers: Age of Ultron ruled the box office this weekend with a huge $187.7 million, which is the second-biggest debut ever. Unfortunately, the top opening ever belongs to its predecessor, Marvel’s The Avengers ($207.4 million)” which is a great start, of course, and continues to augur Continue Reading
If you have read my spoiler-free review, you would be aware that I loved Avengers: Age of Ultron and consider it by far the best superhero movie ever so far. However, based on numerous online comments, it has become de rigueur to label the movie as a disappointing sequel to the Continue Reading
So much hyped up expectation for this sequel to the billion dollar making Avengers movie but guess what? It makes good on every single expectation and more! Director Joss Whedon fills up its 2-hour plus duration with so much comic book goodness that this geek was gushing throughout. And as Continue Reading
With the heightened anticipation for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man almost seems like an after-thought. After all, it does seem poorer in comparison and by all accounts appears to be a retread of the first Iron Man movie. But the first trailer does look very promising I must say, even Continue Reading
10 films that have changed the face of the movie industry. 10 films that exist within an unprecedented shared universe. 10 films that have collectively grossed over US$7 billion worldwide. Yes, there’s no doubt that commercially, the MCU films have done fantastically well but what about creatively? Can the films 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
Our first proper look at the Ant-Man movie is a teaser trailer that comes with a Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) voice-over, as Pym attempts to convince the convicted felon Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) to become the Ant-Man (or ‘Ent-Man’ as Douglas pronounces it!). After the speech, Lang responds with typically Continue Reading
