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?
So hey, the first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer was just released. I liked it! I mean, it felt like Spider-Man, so that was good. It has some great fighting scenes, some great funny scenes, and holy hell Michael Keaton’s Vulture is scary as fuck. But, in addition, it also featured a nice Easter Egg for eagle-eyed (or…
Right now, quite a few people are talking about the “open letter” to Warner Brothers from an allegedly former employee and Patty Jenkins’ response to it. Personally, I’m of the opinion that we should wait and see whether or not Wonder Woman is a good movie, but there are already people clamoring for the DCEU to be…
So Variety is reporting that Brie Larson, who won the Best Actress Oscar for Room, is the front-runner for the role of Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel. For those who haven’t seen Room (not to be confused with The Room, which is a completely different type of movie), Brie Larson might be better known from a…
SHIELD has ended for the season. Long live SHIELD. (SPOILERS for Agents of SHIELD. ‘Natch.)
I have many thoughts about Captain America: Civil War. Many, many thoughts. First and foremost, however, I must put forward that this post will contain many spoilers. Many, many spoilers. Enter at your own risk. Caveat lector.
I’m just back from seeing Civil War. I’m possibly less enthused than most of the reviews I’ve seen so far, so I’m just going to put some thoughts out there. I’m not going to get detail-heavy and don’t plan to put massive spoilers in for anything not kind of general knowledge from trailers, etc. some vague…
Sorry for both posting again in such a short time and also for using that very flattering picture of Rachel Bloom, but 1) I wanted to tell people I have a story published and 2) c’mon, that’s an awesome picture.
Wow – going out with a bang. The mid-season finale of Agents of SHIELD didn’t pull any punches – and considering this is the last “Secrets of SHIELD” post on the Observation Deck, what a way to go!
