Top TV Actors That Should Become Marvel Superheroes

If there’s anything that Marvel has been known for outside of owning blockbusters and making millions, it’s jumpstarting careers. From pulling Robert Downing Jr. from the pits of actor purgatory to launching the pleasantly plump Chris Pratt to the front pages of Esquire and Men’s Health, Marvel knows how to find the right talent. As…

Four More Nostalgic 90s Shows That Should Be Michael Bay’d

A few weeks ago, I compiled a list of favorite cartoons from my 90’s childhood that Michael “The Boom” Bay could successfully reboot in today’s era of CG. On my list were favorites like Street Sharks, Biker Mice From Mars, Beast Wars, and Gargoyles (though I made it clear that Gargoyles on the contrary should…

Deadpool Is Finally Getting His Bloody Due: A Movie in February 2016

Yes, yes, yes. After years of wishful thinking that maybe some exec over at Twentieth Century Fox will remove their head from their pasty candy ass and greenlight Deadpool’s well-deserved solo film, finally the Merc with a Mouth will come back to a theatre near you on February 12, 2016 with a redeemable Ryan Reynolds…

Marvel Leaves ‘Big Hero 6’ To Disney

Since the end of the summer movie season we’ve been treated to more snippets and sneak peeks of Disney’s Big Hero 6. It’s a fresh campaign spearheaded by Disney, and what is unusual in this case is though the Big Hero 6 is considered a Marvel property the name does not accompany it. Sure, there’s…

Top 25 greatest marvel characters of all time

Top 25 Greatest Marvel Characters of All Time

It’s easy to look upon Marvel’s ranks and curate a personal list of favorites based on their abilities and personality. However, Marvel’s portfolio of characters is too complicated to judge along that basis. Rather than an array of personal inclinations (mine would see the likes of Fatomex among the top 5), we must treat these…

Al Pacino Wants In With The Marvel Family

It seems like the last time someone expressed interest in a role at Marvel, they ended up with one comically repetitious line in a major summer blockbuster and an additional mysterious role in the future (Vin Diesel). While some actors patiently wait for Scorsese or Spielberg to cast them in one memorable role, others look…

Champs And Chumps Of The 2014 Summer Movie Season

Well, the summer movie season has come to an anticlimactic close and while the kiddies are back to school and stay at home moms/dads revert to afternoon boozing and reality television, we ready ourselves for Oscar season. But before we go any further, we must look back and reflect on the high tides and shallow…

The rollercoaster ride of robert rodriquez’s career

The Rollercoaster Ride of Robert Rodriquez’s Career

It’s another humiliating swing and a miss for Robert Rodriquez’s latest film, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Sure, after nearly ten years the belated sequel had a hard time following the success and pizzazz of the first installment back in 2005, which opened up to an impressive $29 million. Presently though the sequel…

Stan Lee Pretty Much Confirms Black Panther Film

I’m sure at this point that we’ve all seen Stan “The Man” Lee in an interview, so we can all agree that the beloved 91 year old loves to talk. He’s ecstatic for his brittle age, and for good reason. As DC carefully sits and systematically ponders their next move in a shared cinematic universe,…

Yet Another Way ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Remains Relevant

What is it that draws us to the idea of superheroes? Granted, we live in a world where true heroism exists in many ways like those clad in blue on the streets of our cities or in combat boots away far in foreign deserts. But we long to see the extraordinaire in cape, costume, and mask. Is…

4 Nostalgic 90s Shows That Should Come Back

If there is one thing for certain, Michael Bay loves a good Saturday morning cartoon. Why else would the mega producer/director bring to life classic favorites like the Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as he nears 50? While other notable directors are reimagining biblical epics or illustrating compelling biopics, Bay is playing out his…

Teasing Black Panther and Captain Marvel In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Ask and you shall receive. For some time now fans of DC and Marvel have been asking wholeheartedly for a female or minority driven comic book film as superheroes rain down from the cinema heavens. While Sony has announced their prospects for a female lead from the Spiderman franchise, possibly Black Cat, and DC setting…

‘Expendables’ Exhausted During Summer Slump

The latest box office showdown claimed yet another blockbuster hopeful as the Expendables went to war with the Guardians and the Turtles. In a not so surprise turn of events, Stallone and the boys went down like erectile dysfunction. While the older generation can’t get enough of Sly’s grunts, Schwarzenegger’s meta-references, and enough bullets, beat…

Marvel’s next gamble goes ‘inhuman’

Marvel’s Next Gamble Goes ‘Inhuman’

As predicted, following the success of Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel has established itself as the breakout studios that can do no wrong. Even in recent years where Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy has influenced the masses to appreciate a comic book film grounded in reality and maturity, Marvel put forth an expensive cosmic epic filled…

‘guardians’ get ninja’d by the ‘turtles’ in box office showdown

‘Guardians’ Get Ninja’d By The ‘Turtles’ In Box Office Showdown

It was a weekend battlefront of the oddities. Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket, Groot, and Gamora sought to keep the weekend from the combined might of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo. In an epic battle of comic book films, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles surprisingly overcame the odds and debuted to an impressive $65 million, thus cementing…
