First and foremost, I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and a happy holiday. I hope that as you read through my latest post, that you are found in the best of health, peace, prosperity and family fellowship. As many of you know, I’m a voracious movie devotee and avid comic book reader. Some folks are so quick to compare the success of Marvel/ Disney’s Cinematic Universe (MCU) to the DC Comics/ Warner Bros. Extended Universe (DCEU). I think it’s a bit unfair because Marvel was able to get a successful jump on their cinematic universe, and as I explained in an earlier post on the Justice League film, the movies of the DCEU have been overly scrutinized and dissected. Before I dive deeper into this review, I want to warn you of some minor spoilers ahead. As long as the waters are calm for you to navigate, please read on. Just a little Aquaman humor there.Continue reading “‘Aquaman’ Raises the DCEU From the Depths; Conquers Christmas Box Office”
In case you missed it, the first trailer to Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War has arrived and it looks spectacular. The trailer to the upcoming Marvel blockbuster has set a new record for the most trailer views in a single day, racking up more than 200 million views in 24 hours. If you ask me, that’s absolutely incredible.

So Marvel gave us the second trailer to ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and a first look at the newest variant of Spider-Man, the version that will connect to a solo Spider-Man film co-produced by Sony’s Amy Pascal and Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige. With Civil War being the biggest Marvel movie to date, the brand new trailer looks absolutely fantastic! Black Panther in action is amazing and long overdue, the tension between Cap and Tony is intensely, self-evident and last but not least, we got Spider-Man swinging into the MCU! But of course–as if with all superhero movies, you’re going to get a broad range of reactions from ordinary movie-goers, sacrificial geeks and die-hard fanboys. To some, the suit looks like someone in the design department had a bit too much funny with the CGI effects. While others instantly recognized and welcomed the Silver Age-inspired design. As far as Spidey’s suit is concerned, I’m just hoping that it’s not the finished product. I mean he does look a little weird… but hopefully, the suit will be a bit more polished by the time the movie rolls around this coming May.Continue reading “Marvel’s Final Trailer To ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Featuring Spider-Man!”
