I finally got to see Logan last night, after a couple of false starts over the weekend. And I can say without hesitation, it was worth the wait. This was the Wolverine film that we needed to see when X-Men Origins: Wolverine was released and definitely beats the pants off 2013’s The Wolverine. Logan was […]
The first trailer for the new Spider-man film has finally been released and it’s a doozie! If you’ve seen Captain America: Civil War, you’ll know it (spoiler alert!) featured a certain Peter Parker in a cameo role.
It looks like Spider-Man: Homecoming picks up after that, as the trailer features the ever-suave Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man) who seems to have adopted a kind of mentor role for Peter. I think it’s a nice overlap with the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe and will make sense to people who saw Spider-Man’s last outing.
I’ll fully admit that I went to see this film out of a sense of obligation. I’m a massive Marvel Comics fan and have enjoyed nearly all of the movie adaptations they’ve made in the past few years. But I was worried about Doctor Strange, as it represents such a change in tone from it […]
Just call me “Nappy McNapFace”. After my run this morning – after which I felt I could take on the world! – I took a much-needed shower and made myself some lunch. I updated the blog, wasted some time on twitter and booked a cinema ticket. I then had some comics to read, so curled […]
Want the shortest version of this? Captain America: Civil War is excellent for fans of comics, super heroes and action films.
However, if you don’t know what S.H.I.E.L.D. is or how it’s different from Captain America’s shield, you may find it hard to keep up with this one. Indeed, if you can’t accept that it’s perfectly reasonable for two World War II soldiers to have experienced different forms of suspended animation and still be able to smash down doors and leap through walls, then maybe you should give it a miss.
But I hope you don’t as it’s tremendous fun. Continue reading
What a way to wake up this morning – seeing Twitter ablaze with links to the trailer for the Dr. Strange film! I’ve been looking forward to this since it was a announced as I’ve always been a fan of these slightly offbeat comics, where the focus is on other realities, rather than heroes knocking […]
There’s no other way to put this – Captain America: Civil War looks epic. I’m more excited for this film than any of its predecessors in the Marvel Studios catalogue. After several high-profile outings for the Avengers, featuring not a small amount of collateral damage, the government brings in a registration protocol. The need to […]
An epic post from Comic Book Resources, outlining all the various teams the X-Men (and spin-offs) have constituted since the 60s. I’m not that old, but I remember from number 3 onwards. Such happy memories of hours spent reading x-books (even when they were so god-awful back in the 90s) and trying to figure out […]
I am. And I’m looking forward to it! Here’s the first trailer for ‘Captain America: Civil War‘ which, if the comics are anything to go by, will pitch hero against hero as they fight over the government requirement to have a ‘register’ of super-heroes. The Avengers ‘schism’ and find themselves on opposite sides of the […]
