This week Steve takes a second look at Marvel’s two most recent movies, Deadpool and Ant-Man, and finds one much better than the other… but YMMV! Also a couple of tips for writers who may be stuck.
Getting tired of superhero films? Don’t go to sleep before you see Ant-Man
Could DC be making a run at Marvel?
SF & Fantasy in media from 2014
Guardians of the Galaxy DVD hits the stores!
Now Agent Coulson is now Director Coulson, there are a bunch of new people, who aren’t agents, but have been recruited (much like Skye), Ward is locked up and went a bit crazy….
More superheroes are coming to the little screen!
1978’s Superman movie got the tone right.
There is a lot of mystery and excitement in the comic edition of SGT. Fury Special Marvel Edition – Captain America and Bucky. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby hid a lot more than just secret identities between their characters as readers see the early signs of unbeatable teamwork – a foreshadow of S.H.I.E.L.D. and things to come.
The conversation got me thinking about heroes and what characteristics are expected of a hero from generation to generation.
We never got to find out what happened to Peggy Carter after Captain America left her.
Is it possible to be Team Marvel and Superman (stand alone) at the same time? Because that is where I am….
Another summer of cinematic wilderness is drawing to a close and I owe you all a big apology. Why? Because I am responsible for the terrible state of mainstream American cinema today.
I cannot wait for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to start (24 September in the US), it has interest from UK broadcasters, but none confirmed as yet, but hopefully we won’t have to wait too long this side of the pond. The main reason I am excited about this TV series is it brings back from the […]
Ok, before I start, this is my personal preference, so you may or may not agree with these, but here are my personal favourite highlights of Comic-Con 2013. I’ve been enjoying Comic-Con from the comfort of my sofa in front of my laptop, but have to say some of the tweets/announcements this year have been […]
Warning: Minor Man of Steel spoilers follow. In all fairness, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is a beautiful movie. It’s the kind of thing you’d expect from a “New 52”-era DC Comics adaptation: loads of fun, generally on par with Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, light-years beyond lesser attempts like Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern (2011), and […]
Science fiction and fantasy are taking over the realm of the Hollywood summer blockbuster, no question about it. Marvel Studios is gearing up to launch the Avengers franchise into space with the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film, Neill Blomkamp’s about to wow audiences with his sophomore full-length feature, Elysium, and Christopher Nolan’s next movie is […]
The fact that Marvel is taking its Avengers franchise to the small screen excites me, as rather than a film or two every year or so (or more with all of the new films in the pipeline) I will be able to see the action every week. And more than that, my favourite character Agent […]
The 2013 comic book season has finally arrived and lucky for me the UK is one of the first countries getting a first taste of the Marvel movies again. Today saw Tony Stark return to saving the world solo, following his epic battle against Loki with Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Nick Fury […]
The sun actually decided to finally show its face in London this week, and that along with me spotting that the 2012/13 season of TV shows is soon coming to an end has made me realise that the summer season is nearly upon us and that can mean only one thing. Blockbuster movie season. Over […]
