Captain America: Civil War Trailer 3

Oh.  My.  God. Where to begin…first off, what the hell is this? Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) latest indulgence? A S.H.I.E.L.D. base of operations replacing the destroyed Triskelion from Captain America: The Winter Soldier? I have no idea. Then there’s this:  Yes, that’s the Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) outrunning  a speeding Audi. The reason being, the car was […]

Crossbones From Captain America: Civil War!

Various movie sites have posted an image of Crossbones from the upcoming Captain America: Civil War and unlike most of the cast of Suicide Squad, he looks pretty awesome. For those of you that don’t recall, at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier you see Brock Rumlow (Frank Grillo) in a hospital bed after […]

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Superbowl Trailer

I really want to like this movie, but I am a little sensitive since being trade raped the last time.  Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man film was such as colossal mess that the honorable thing to do would have been to take it out back and shoot it. Yes.  Watching “The Amazing Spider-Man” felt exactly like […]

The Falcon Quandary

That title sounds like a Robert Ludlum novel.  “The Falcon Quandary.” Marvel Studios, I think, has run into a minor speed bump.  Since they have no right to use characters that are referred to as mutants–because of a licensing deal with Twentieth Century Fox, made when the company was flirting with bankruptcy–there are no super-powered […]

A Matter Of Continuity : ‘The Avengers’

I think Marvel Studios “The Avengers” is – so far – the best superhero film ever made.  It takes itself seriously enough that it doesn’t come off as silly, yet remembers that this stuff is based on comic books, which were originally geared toward children (though in places like Japan – and to an extent […]

S.H.I.E.L.D on ABC

This is so cool.  According to Hollywood Reporter Joss Whedon is developing a television based upon S.H.I.E.L.D (Supreme Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) for ABC.  The best thing about this is that a S.H.I.E.L.D series can deal with more traditional threats as well as those of a super-powered nature. It’s uncertain if Whedon will […]

Japanese ‘Avengers’ Trailer

What did we Americans do to be treated with such disdain?  Sure, the United States trailer for “The Avengers” delivers some cool superhero goodness, but compared to the Japanese trailer, it’s a tease. By way of example, here are two shots of the fraggin’ S.H.I.E.L.D helicarrier (for those not quite into comics, the helicarrier is […]

Avengers Assembled!
