Are you tired of the fact that the Marvel TV never seems to cross over with the MCU films? Tired of the fact that The Defenders refer to the Hulk as “the big green guy” or Captain America as “the flag-waver”? Tired of not seeing team-ups when team-ups are actually some of the funnest parts of comic books? Well, that’s…
Most people who watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. agree that Season 4 was the best, with it’s interlocking pod-story arcs, introduction of Ghost Rider, LMDs, and the politically-charged Framework storyline — but Season 5 appears to be going in a completely different direction, while still maintaining the same urgent…
Yeah, there were a ton of comic book references in Thor: Ragnarok. What’d you find?
Whew. Here we are in the final stretch of the season (series?) with only one more episode after this one to go. Last week’s episode wasn’t entirely bad. We had death, destruction, actual usage of powers, and even a crazy ex-girlfriend cop call.
Well. That was fun.
I’m not sure if this short was also directed by Taika Waititi, but I want to see more humorous bits where Cate Blancett basically ignores everyone from the MCU. “Robert Downey who? I can’t be bothered to remember everybody’s names. That’s why I’ve got two Oscars, three Golden Globes, and an Order of Australia.”
Howdy True Believers!
Last night’s episode of Inhumans bugged me so much that I began to imagine a better version of the show. Everyone can see the issues with the show: the lack of budget, the rushed pace of production, the generally poor writing and direction. There are good actors, but they have a hard time elevating the material they…
The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. NYCC panel today gave us both this delightful blooper reel and the date for the two-hour premiere of Season 5: December 1st! Yay!
After having heard that the first episode of Marvel’s Inhumans was the Worst Thing Ever for so long, I was disappointed to find out that, while not great, the show wasn’t terrible, either. It has its ups and downs, slightly more downs than ups, but still: not bad.
Why do so many superhero movies have the same origin story? It all comes down to the use – and misuse – of the monomyth. Here’s what the hero’s journey is and why it shouldn’t be used to make movies (even if great movies feature it).
Here it is, ladies and gentlemen: after weeks of teasing us with short clips and images, this is the first full length trailer for Netflix’s Marvel’s The Punisher. And it’s appropriately bloody and violent, but also kind of sweet in the beginning, before it gets bloody and violent.
Lindsay Ellis is a great internet reviewer. She has done videos on Rent, Beauty and the Beast, Mel Brooks, Pocahontas, and an entire series on Transformers. So when she uploaded a video talking about the “complex feels” of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, I immediately watched it and you should, too.
The connexion between making money and survival, for you and your loved ones, as always been fertile ground for drama in stories set in the U.S. 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming dramatises the political struggle between a working class whose sense of morality has been warped by the money-making imperative and a new…
I saw the movie this afternoon and I saw there wasn’t any discussion here on the O-Deck. So I thought I would fix that. Be ware, there will be spoilers after the drop.
While watching Spider-Man: Homecoming, there was a feeling I had that I was watching what was missing. Not just what was missing from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but what had been missing from all prior Spider-Man movies. Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t just a great Spider-Man movie, it’s a movie that allows itself to…
So the presskit credits for Spider-Man: Homecoming were finally released and the names of who some of the actors were playing turned out to be quite a surprise. Here is the list and what each character means in the regular Marvel Universe.
I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 tonight. Was it good? Hell yes. Was it as good as the first film? Eh, not quite. But it didn’t need to be. It was good on its own, by itself, and it served all the characters well. Hell, it introduced a buttload of more characters that I want to see more of right now.
So Captain Marvel now has both a star (Brie Larson) and a director (well, two directors — Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck). And according to Kevin Feige, filming will begin in February 2018. But who else should be cast in the movie?
