Marvel’s Iron Fist NYCC Teaser Trailer

If anyone had said that Marvel Television, when Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered on ABC a few years ago, that they would come to dominate superhero television I would have been hopeful, but wouldn’t have treated them too seriously. Though having seen both seasons of Marvel’s Daredevil, as well as the first seasons of Jessica […]

Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets – Poster

Lucy Besson, while a visually sumptuous director, is not a terribly original writer–which may have a little to do with him settling with John Carpenter over his 2012 movie Lockout, which was essentially Escape From New York aboard a space station. Lucy, directed by Besson in 2014, fared particularly well financially, though many considered the story (about […]

The Curse of Marvel Studios

Marvel Studios is one of the most successful movie studios today, if profitable, reasonably-budgeted movies are the metric–if you consider a $200-250 million reasonable–so much so that some within Disney were rumored to be disappointed with the earnings of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which took in $1.4 billion at the box office–so if that’s a […]

X-Men: Apocalypse – Trailer 1

I have just watched the latest trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse, and it’s…okay. It teases Apocalypse, his Four Horsemen, his origins and so forth but there’s a problem:  As far as superhero movies go, we’re in a time of wonders. From the Avengers to Superman, some of the greatest in comics have, or will soon, pop up […]

Jessica Jones-A-Thon: AKA Top Shelf Perverts

I was originally going to get something to eat and go to bed, but I’ve delayed that till I take a look at the seventh episode of Marvel’s Jessica Jones. Kilgrave’s obsession with Jessica Jones grows, as she goes on a bender after a secret she had wished remained hidden drove Cage away from her. […]

Jessica Jones-A-Thon: AKA 99 Friends

Tonally, Marvel’s Jessica Jones is heavier than Marvel’s Daredevil, but that being said, it’s somehow more watchable.  I can easily see myself re-watching this relatively soon, while I am just getting to the point that I want to see the devil of Hell’s Kitchen’s first season again. This is an important episode.  It’s not as Kilgrave-centered (though even […]

Jessica Jones Teaser Trailer – “All In A Day’s Work”

Despite being an avid comic reader, prior to Netflix’s Jessica Jones I barely knew anything about the character.  I still don’t but I like the way–if the teasers are any indication–where it’s going. Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a political thriller, Guardians Of The Galaxy was Marvel’s interpretation of a space opera. Daredevil (Netflix’s version) […]
