The Avengers: Age Of Ultron – TV Spot 1

Seriously, why does Marvel Studios even bother with trailers, especially for a property like The Avengers?  They already have my money, and I am sure the same applies for millions of other people. Just don’t give away any more of the movie (which the new trailers don’t seem to be doing) because I am still smarting over […]

Ant-Man – Trailer

I caught the Ant-Man trailer–for some reason it’s still being called a “teaser”–and I have to say, it looks awesome.  You’ve got Paul Rudd in his Ant-Man costume, running about, riding an ant and looking bulked-up.

Movie Mistakes: ‘Iron Man 3’

Generally I don’t particularly care about these sorts of things, but having seen “Iron Man 3” perhaps more times than should be legal, I noticed this little error. Truth be told, it’s less of an error than the filmmakers apparently showing us what they can get away with when viewers are in awe over one of […]

And You Thought Being Batman Was Expensive…

As expensive as Batman’s kit is–and it’s very expensive–it doesn’t hold a candle to what it would cost to outfit yourself as Marvel’s Iron Man.  For instance, just the Arc reactor alone would cost, according to those enterprising folk at Moneysupermarket.com, a cool $36 million. And while that’s probably reasonable when you consider that it’s […]

‘The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’

I was watching Netflix, when I saw one of the new additions was “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,” a cartoon that’s, essentially, a twenty-three minute advert for Marvel Studios upcoming ‘Avengers’ movie this May. The show is featured on Disney XD, which is owned by Disney (as is Marvel). I didn’t expect all that much, […]

New-Gen: New Player in Town?

Comic book characters have been on television and in movies for many years, though the publishers of such characters have in the past been more numerous. These days, most superhero films either come from either Marvel Studios (a division of Walt Disney, and based upon characters like Spider-Man, Captain America, The Fantastic Four,  Thor, the […]
