WandaVision Episode 3 continues the Disney+ streaming superhero TV drama miniseries. As mentioned in our previous review, WandaVision is the first time Marvel Studios has spun off the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) characters into a TV series. Anyone familiar with the MCU – isn’t that everyone? – will be aware of its interconnectivity and perhaps that’s where WandaVision (so far) has held back in favour of a very fanciful storytelling artifice.(more…)
WandaVision is the debut Marvel Studios superhero TV miniseries drama streaming on the Disney+ platform. Of course, we have had Marvel TV series like Daredevil, Jessica Jones etc on Netflix, Agents of SHIELD on ABC and so on. However, this time around, WandaVision is effectively spinning off the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) characters of Wanda Maximoff and Vision into a TV miniseries. Thus far, Disney+ has released the first two episodes of the miniseries and its fair to say that WandaVision is quite different from what MCU fans may be used to in the hit movies.(more…)
The New Mutants is a superhero horror movie directed by Josh Boone. The final movie in the Fox X-Men franchise series, The New Mutants is loosely based on the Marvel comic book series of the same name, in particular the Demon Bear Saga that ran from #18 – #20, in the 80s.(more…)
Taking a macro view, Avengers : Endgame is a thrilling and heartfelt celebration of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and represents the end of the Infinity Saga, which began with Iron Man (2008).(more…)
Venom is a 2018 American superhero film drama based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, produced by Columbia Pictures in association with Marvel and Tencent Pictures. If you like your superheroes light and you are not too concerned about well-developed plots and characterisations, then this is the movie for you!(more…)
MAKE MINE MARVEL is an opinion piece.
A decade ago, Marvel Studios released its maiden production – Iron Man – and the world of movies have never been the same.

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!

Just booked my tickets for Infinity War, IMAX 3D no less. But my expectations are at an absolute low for superhero films, especially with recent disappointments.
A third of the way into the 2nd season of the Marvel-Netflix series Jessica Jones, one conclusion becomes unavoidable. The reason that Season 1 worked was down solely to David Tennant’s star turn as Killgrave.

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.

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.(more…)

GEEK OUT!!! THE RUNAWAYS SEASON ONE EPISODES 1 – 3 [REVIEW]GEEK OUT!!! THE RUNAWAYS SEASON ONE EPISODES 1 – 3 [REVIEW]
Amongst comic book geeks, The Runaways has always been a no-brainer for either film or TV adaptation.
After the sensational first three Marvel-Netflix series viz. Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Daredevil 2, the franchise somewhat lost its way with the relatively disappointing Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders. Thus, there was definitely pressure on this adaptation of the fan-favourite character – The Punisher – to right the ship, so to speak.
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.

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.
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!
The best way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the ‘King of Comics’ the late great Jack Kirby is to simply appreciate his work.
