Black Panther is black fantasy sci-fi

There’s something to be said about the excitement surrounding Black Panther. That it's profoundly impacted so many people, particularly black people, to see the world of Marvel’s Black Panther comic books adapted...

Review: Black Panther

The fact of the matter is you don't see movies like Black Panther made. I'm not talking about the groundbreaking facts you already know about the movie: its almost entirely black cast, with an almost entirely black creative team l...

Marvel gathers together all their heroes for an epic photo

Believe it or not the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been around for 10 years now if we consider the universe being established when Marvel Studios was founded by Marvel to start making their own movies. It's hard to begrudge Marvel doing a...

First Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer has a giant Pez dispenser

Ant-Man is easily Marvel's most underrated film. Not the Edgar Wright classic we were sure to get (still bitter), but people don't give it the props it deserved. The movie was a little heist film in the middle of a giant Marvel univer...

Best look at Ant-Man and the Wasp in... Ant-Man and the Wasp

I think of all the Marvel films Ant-Man is the least appreciated. The studio made a fun little heist movie that sat outside most of the continuity of the universe, and as such it didn't generate quite as much hype as other films. Hopef...

Michael De Luca joins production team of Suicide Squad 2

As we all know the DC Cinematic Universe is in trouble. Despite the fantastic Wonder Woman, Justice Leagueu fell flat with critics and audiences. So DC began a shift in those making the films, moving producers around and bringing in fr...

CW releases new origin trailer for Black Lightning

The CW's Arrowverse shows have varied in quality throughout the seasons, but they've always had a certain charm even when it's not their best run. They definitely seem to understand the DC universe better than the movies do. Maybe they get...

Rumor: Jake Gyllenhaal wanted for Batman

(Note: I'm referring to Gyllenhal's creepy turn in the film Nightcrawler, not the X-Men character. I suppose explaining a joke means it's not a good one, but here we are.) It's been pretty clear that Ben Affleck hasn't been having as m...

Danger Girl movie rights scooped up

I'd like to tell you that I got into the Danger Girl comics when they first came out because I was into their tongue-in-cheek take on the James Bond spy film genre. But I was a teenage boy in the 90s so I think we all know why I picked...

Review: Justice League

Warning: I'm going to discuss a thing that is obvious, but some may consider a spoiler so don't read if you've been in a cave for the entire marketing campaign of this movie.  Well they did it, folks. DC made two movies in a row that d...

Deadpool gets creative in new Deadpool 2 Teaser

Scheduled to release on June 2, Deadpool 2 was due a trailer (though perhaps not as much as Avengers: Infinity War). Finally, we've got something. It's not a full trailer, and contains only a hint of spoilers, but, true to D...

Review: Thor: Ragnarok

While I like the Marvel Cinematic Universe overall, I've never been that interested in the Thor movies. I love the Walt Simonson run on The Mighty Thor, but the previous live-action films featuring the God of Thunder never really appealed t...
