Avengers Endgame Review - Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow

Avengers Endgame Review – the MCU snaps out gloriously

Avengers Endgame is a sad movie. The creative staff behind it have not shied away from showing and letting the viewer feel the full repercussion from Infinity War. Set 5 years after the events if the previous movie the remaining Avengers live on a significantly depressed earth. This stands in contrast with my own feeling on who would be brought back from oblivion and who die ‘permanently’ in this movie. Instead, the creative staff focus heavily on establishing what the fallout was, on a personal level, for each Avenger. The Avengers cut in half Clint (Jeremy Renner) is probably the...

Avengers: Infinity War Review – the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe fights Thanos

Avengers: Infinity War Review Finally the long wait is over. For years we have had to hear how Avengers Infinity War would be the ultimate experience the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to offer. Assembling Earth’s mightiest heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy to fight the often talked about but rarely seen Thanos. Avengers Infinity War is a true accomplishment, as directors Anthony and Joe succeed to juggle the overload of characters and story points to create a multi-layered experience. This is my review of Avengers Infinity War. I should warn those who have yet to see the movie that...

Captain America Civil War Review! Marvel rises from the ashes of Ultron

Captain America Civil War Review! Finally, a new Captain America movie has been released. This time it was directed by the Russo brothers. Like The Avengers movie Captain America does not just focus on its titular character. Instead just like The Avengers, the story follows an ensemble of super heroes. As Marvel’s Cinematic Universe continues the number of movie characters is starting to become too large. Age Of Ultron was hampered by thus, but Captain America Civil War manages the issue handsomely. I was ready to dislike Civil War as yet another special effects summer popcorn movie. Age Of Ultron left me cold, not in the...

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released - Super Iron Man suit

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released

Due to the leak of an copy of the Avengers Age Of Ultron trailer online Marvel has decided to officially release it a week earlier. Set to the tune of an alternate version of Pinocchio’s ‘there are no strings on me’ we have a 2 minute and 16 second Ultron fest. The Avengers by comparison seem defeated and divided, but of course it wouldn’t be a movie if the superheroes aren’t rock bottom during the story. At this stage it is too early to say what the movie’s premise is other than the villain Ultron’s attempt at taking over the world. Ultron is voiced by...

Avengers Age of Ultron Preview

Avengers Age of Ultron Preview Comic-Con 2014 is in full swing and as every year there is simply too much news too report. Comic-con is not usually reserved for large announcements. Instead studios prefer to offer teasers and little snippets of news to lure back the press to a future event. So it is too with the upcoming Marvel movie Avengers: Age of Ultron. This second Avengers is again directed by Joss Whedon and will see a familiar cast being enlarged by Elizabeth Olsen (Godzilla) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass). So far the release date was just ‘summer 2015’. Which of course could mean anything. Fans will...

Iron Man 3 Review!

Iron Man 3 Review!

Fans are finally able to watch the third Iron Man installment in cinema’s. After the disappointing second movie and the fantastic The Avengers expectations for Iron Man 3 were high. For the most part those expectations have been fulfilled, but there are a few wrinkles here and there. I like this movie more than I did the original Iron Man mainly because of its depth. However, the movies villains are just as shallow and un-memorable as before. As per the fact that I was able see the movie in cinema’s myself there is now a review here on SciFiEmpire.net. The Movie… Iron Man 3 at...

Iron Man 3 Trailer is just Awesome!

Iron Man 3 Trailer is just Awesome!

Before May 3rd arrives (or April 25th for those in Europe) watch the new Iron Man 3 trailer that Marvel just released. Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Gwyneth Paltrow as his assistant Pepper Potts and Ben Kingsley as the movie main antagonist – The Mandarin. Don Cheadle reprises his Iron Man 2 role as Colonel Rhodes while Guy Pearce plays Aldrich Killian, a man who has created a dangerous virus (but that is not elaborated on in the trailer). I guess after that trailer your were speechless, so was I. I like the fact that the movies seems to leave no character...

Iron Man 3 posters revealed + Pepper Potts isn’t happy with Tony’s Helmet!

I have never been a huge comic book fan, especially not superhero comics. The medium was always too much of a go-between of novel and motion action. If, on the other hand, a movie is made based on a superhero comic I will give it a try depending on the reviews and whether or not it maintains at least a semblance of plausibility (Batman, Kick-ass and The Walking Dead). Iron Man is one of those franchises and despite a disappointing second installment I am very much looking forward to Iron Man 3 (especially after The Avengers). Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr. (Sherlock...
