Avengers Infinity War – which heroes are preparing for their doom?

Avengers Infinity War – which heroes are preparing for their doom?

The latest episode in the Marvel Cinematic Universe saga will feature a vast array of costumed crime fighters. It’s time to edge some of them out of the picture. It’s easy to forget, nearly a decade into the phenomenally triumphant Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), that there was a time when studio bigwigs concerned about audience recognition. Next year’s Avengers Infinity War will have a roster of superheroes so populous that it’s easy to imagine lesser-known costumed crime fighters…

There’s quite a Good Reason to Believe Black Panther Will Unveil Infinity War’s Soul Stone

There’s quite a Good Reason to Believe Black Panther Will Unveil Infinity War’s Soul Stone

The location of the Soul Stone, the last of the Infinity Stones, remains one of the last big mysteries of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As filled with new information as the Avengers Infinity War trailer shows, it doesn’t shed any light on the Stone’s hidden locations—but a key scene in the most recent Black Panther trailer might. At some point during Infinity War, Black Panther and some of the Avengers will lead an army of Wakandan warriors into battle with what…

Marvel’s Infinity Stones, what are they, where are they? (Part 2)

WHERE ARE THE INFINITY STONES IN THE MOVIES? Ah, now we have come to the crux of the matter. In Guardians of the Galaxy, it was explained that the six “stones” are actually six singularities whose existence preceded the Big Bang and were pressed into stones after the universe began. Different from their comic book counterparts, the Infinity Stones are only physical gems at times, occasionally taking the form of strange gases or powerful cubes. Some of…

Avengers Infinity War trailer is different from the early footage at SDCC, and is much better

Wakanda is home to Black Panther, one of Marvel’s newer heroes in the Cinematic Universe. We’ve seen glimpses of the futuristic nation and the impressive technology its citizens rely on in earlier Black Panther trailers, gotten a sense of how stunning and ample the nation is, and we’ve been told about its importance. Captain America Civil War introduced the notion that Wakanda would play a major role in uniting heroes and protecting the world from an impending attack….

First Look At Avengers Infinity War Trailer: 11 Major Plot Unfolds (Part 2)

5. Scarlet Witch And Vision’s Romance Scarlet Witch and Vision’s romance has been hinted at for quite a while now, with her taking him down in Civil War obviously a painful moment for both, but it seems to be in full swing this time of Infinity War. It’s a relationship taken from the comics, although the big kicker here is of course that we’re seeing a human-looking Vision, rather than a red android. Coupled with…

Marvel Has Finally Found a Way to Reinvent the Genre Again With Thor’s Third Solo Outing – Thor Ragnarok

Marvel Has Finally Found a Way to Reinvent the Genre Again With Thor’s Third Solo Outing – Thor Ragnarok

In 2008, the superhero movie genre turned on its head. Christopher Nolan’s masterwork The Dark Knight brought a hyper-realistic, gritty style to the Batman series that earned massive critical acclaim and received eight Oscar nominations (and a posthumous win for its star, Heath Ledger). The very same year, Marvel churned out Iron Man, the colorful, family-friendly, ticket-selling beast that launched the multi-billion dollar MCU. At the time, NPR’s Bob Mondello said of Iron Man, “If every superhero franchise had a…

I Gave Zero Sh*t About Marvel Films Till Thor Ragnarok

I Gave Zero Sh*t About Marvel Films Till Thor Ragnarok

I have a hit-and-miss record with Marvel movies, meaning that they are all hits, and I have somehow missed seeing most of them. I haven’t seen a single Avengers movie, nor a Captain America movie; I avoided Doctor Strange and just realized this very second that there was an Ant-Man movie. Also I can’t remember if I saw Guardians of the Galaxy or if I’m misremembering Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which I definitely saw because I could see it for…

Thor Ragnarok – An interesting twist of by-the-books dream-hero fare

Thor Ragnarok – An interesting twist of by-the-books dream-hero fare

Solid enough, but this feels like a footnote in the crowded Marvel Cinematic Universe. For nearly a decade, the Marvel comic universe has flourished in film by striking a very gentle balance between serious and silly. Heart and sarcasm are seen in equal measure between Marvel’s many classic superhero fistfights. These films take no shame in laughing at their odd, over-serious origins—and do so with obvious love and reverence for their source material. However, there…

Thor Ragnarok Is secretly bringing a franchise back to life

Thor Ragnarok Is secretly bringing a franchise back to life

Eric Pearson’s pressure-filled job laid the foundation for a movie that’s fresh in a way that’s all but unheard of for a third installment. When Eric Pearson earned a spot as screenwriter for Thor Ragnarok, there were two orders given to him: Chris Hemsworth‘s God of Thunder should be the film’s breeziest character, and the work shouldn’t be restrained by the series’ past. Thor Ragnarok film succeeded on both counts. Ragnarok has become Marvel Studios’ best-reviewed film yet and is…

Thor Ragnarok rules. And it’s hilarious — even if you’re not that into superheroes

If you like your superheroes buff and snarky (and who doesn’t?), you’ll love Thor Ragnarok. Heck, even if you don’t like superheroes at all, you’ll love this movie. Chris Hemsworth is Thor in the third film based on the comic book character. He is definitely buff and he’s definitely snarky, hilariously so. Yes, Thor Ragnarok is funny, right out of the gate. When we first met the man, he’s a prisoner of Surtur (voiced by…

Thor Ragnarok: A giddily wonderful ride

When Cate Blanchett, playing Hela, the Goddess of Death, struts through the treasure storehouse of her father, Odin, in Thor Ragnarok she casts her eye about. One by one, the film’s black-antlered villainess assesses the artifacts – which include the highly sought-after blue “infinity stone” – with a series of blunt dismissals: “Fake!” “Weak!” “Smaller than I thought it would be!” Such Twitter-worthy put-downs are not the only wisecracks that might make audiences remember of…

Is Thor Ragnarok Marvel’s Best Film To Date?

Is Thor Ragnarok Marvel’s Best Film To Date?

With a cast full of starts and a refreshed sense of humor thanks to director Taika Waititi, Thor’s third solo act isn’t just his best—it perhaps is Marvel’s best, too. Marvel movies, generally speaking, stink. Since 2008, Disney has churned out sixteen unambitious, bland movies that have ranged in quality from “totally serviceable” (the Captain America series) to “totally garbage” (Iron Man 2), with maybe an exception for the two Guardians of the Galaxy titles. There’s nothing worse than hearing someone…
