It’s been estimated that Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel will bow somewhere in the ballpark $100 million. By way of comparison–because let’s be honest: You knew it was coming–DC Films’ Wonder Woman had a $105 million debut, so all signs point to Captain Marvel surpassing it. It’s worth mentioning that Captain Marvel is likely to be […]
Universal Pictures dropped a trailer for their Fast and Furious spin-off, Shaw & Hobbs and…it’s interesting because while it continues the car fetishization typical for the series it’s a spin-off from–if the trailer is at all accurate it’s become a superhero film.

And I know bumblebees don’t sting, but work with me. According to Superherohype Paramount’s Bumblebee has overtaken Warner Bros. Aquaman in international markets.
