So. Many. Avengers.

Marvel released their trailer for the next Avengers movie. And it is EPIC. It's worth watching it a few times, just to spot all the different characters. I mean, we've got Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Thor, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther...the list goes on. https://youtu.be/6ZfuNTqbHE8 While the trailer itself looks stunning,  have one big ...

The Punisher is on his way

Starting November 11th on Netflix, Marvel's latest series "The Punisher" hits our screens. Not literally - although it may feel like that after a couple of episodes. You might remember Frank Castle from his appearance in the second series of Daredevil. This time round, the focus is on him and the show looks to be ...

Logan: A perfect end to Wolverine on screen

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 ...

Here comes Spider-Man (again)

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. ...

MacPsych at the Movies: Doctor Strange

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 ...

Old man nap time

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 ...

A spoiler-free Captain America: Civil War review

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 ...

New trailer for Captain America: Civil War

https://youtu.be/dKrVegVI0Us 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 ...

Expecting a Civil War?

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 ...
