Oh how I’ve waited for news of the sequel to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. Finding the trailer online this morning was a great start to the day and had me laughing out loud in seconds. Baby Groot! Baby Groot! Drax still doesn’t get subtlety and Star Lord remains an adorable sleaze-bag. The sociopathic genetically altered […]

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 […]

Newsarama has a nice little list too… I want cameos and more cameos. Plus a smattering of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Most excellent news this morning, shared with me by the ever entertaining @MadTante – looks like we’re going to see a lot more Marvel content on TV in the coming years. Netflix is going to launch four – yes, FOUR – separate TV series featuring heroes from the Marvel Universe: Marvel will develop four original […]
