Spider-Man: Homecoming Review – Tom Holland manages to Wow!

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review Spider-Man: Homecoming has been a delight to watch, but it certainly didn’t look as though it would be a success when it was first announced. The Spider-Man movie franchise belongs to Sony, and after a series with Tobey Maguire starting in a 2002 and another with Andrew Garfield I think the franchise was dead. Yet Spider-Man also belongs to Marvel Comics. And so Spider-Man ended up in last year’s Captain America: Civil War. Now, Tom Holland is...

Jessica Jones Preview – Netflix pours it on with another Marvel show

Jessica Jones Preview Jessica Jones is a new Netflix show based on the similarly named comic book hero, or heroine. Jessica Jones stars Krysten Ritter as the titular character who runs her own detective agency, Alias Investigations. Show runner Melissa Rosenberg is keen to retain the gritty feels of the Alias comic book series. The comic book series is considered to be more adult than other Marvel series and the goal is the transition to a show will reflect that. Jessica Jones...

Ant-Man Review – I don’t feel the excitement from Iron Man or Captain America!

Ant-Man Review Movies set in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU) are for me an acquired taste. I found the first Iron Man a bit of an odd duck when I first saw it. I have since come to appreciate most of the main characters of the MCU. Tony Stark’s banter with Pepper Potts, Thor’s with Jane Foster, Captain Rogers v. everybody else and of course Coulson and company. I was not looking forward to Ant-Man. I never heard of the comic or the character and...

Agent Carter Series Premiere Review - Hayley Atwell shows some cleavage

Agent Carter Series Premiere Review

Agent Carter Series Premiere Review After the so-so first season of Agent of Shield anyone would think that ABC and Marvel got balls for trying to launch another starring Peggy Carter. Peggy is played by Hayley Atwell as the title character. SHIELD may have improved in quality but a show centered on one character, remembered mostly from the first Captain America movie sounds too much like trying to come up with filler material. Yet, Agent Carter was hotly anticipated from the moment it was...

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD - Battlestar Galactica

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD Slowly the news is starting to trickle in about the second season of Agents of SHIELD. The show is scheduled to premiere on September 23, 2014. I think most people interested can be split into two groups. The first group want to see more of the Marvel Universe because they are fans. While the second want to see if the show will be cancelled. Despite some good reviews during the latter episodes the ratings barely...

Guardians of the Galaxy Preview ***Premiere Update***

Guardians of the Galaxy Preview August 1st it almost upon us, time a Guardians of the Galaxy Preview. Rather unexpectedly we will be getting a science fiction movie featuring a man calling himself Starlord. He is accompanied by talking tree and a foul-mouthed gun toting raccoon. What’s weird is that it is not directed by Joss Whedon. Yet, fans have already started to compare it’s off-beat humor and off-beat cast with both Firefly, Farscape and Star Wars. Officially Guardians of the Galaxy is part of the...

Guardians Of The Galaxy Extended Trailer

When I first heard Marvel was releasing a movie called Guardians of Galaxy I presumed it was just another movie featuring Thor or Loki. We have just had our Captain America movie so I doubted he would be featured. Little did I know that GoG was an already established franchise that has been running in comic book form since 2008. However, when I saw the first trailer I just fell in love with the potential. The non-too-subtle humor and the good looking...
