After a brief but fun introduction in Jessica Jones, Powerman AKA Luke Cage gets his own show on Netflix. So how does this TV series compare to the other superhero TV shows that we have? Sweet Christmas – this show was a lot of fun to watch!
Completing a team is super important when it comes to figure collecting, not an easy task considering how quickly certain characters become “rare” and ridiculously pricey once scalpers start to notice the trend. Sometimes you can’t complete the team because some members just don’t get the action figure treatment, but sometimes team completion is possible, provided you are willing to look overseas. Lucky for us Bandai in Japan noticed Team Cap was lacking, and jumped in to fill the void!
Normally action figures drop just before the Movie in order to get fans hyped up and sell tickets, but sometimes toy makers take their sweet time and release figures months after the movie buzz has died down, for whatever reason. This is the case for Marvel Select’s offerings from the Captain America : Civil War movie. At least they got it in before the DVD came out right? At least the toys are awesome? Well, lets take a look at the new Iron Man and Cap before the DVD becomes old news!
Rumor has it that Disney star Zendaya will be playing Mary Jane Watson in the new Spider-Man: Homecoming movie. This has the internet in an uproar because Miss Zendaya is not white. I can’t wrap my head around this shit. Not the casting, I’m sure she will do better that that awful Kirsten Dunst if the rumor is even true, I mean the straight-up racism. Why/how does it matter what race MJ is?! If thats enough to make you boycott this movie then maybe comicbook movies where Good triumphs over Evil are not for you.
On the upside many distinguishable Marvel writers/directors have jumped on board defending the fact that these roles can belong to anyone. Come on people, get your acts together! Welcome to 2016.
Batman: The Killing Joke is DC Animation’s latest movie that comes out on Blu-ray August 2, 2016 but lucky for me, I got to watch it on the big screen! Like Batman V Superman, this movie also seems to be quite divisive with fans and critics. Some people hated it, while others loved it. What did I think? Check out the post to find out.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. And if an old idea turns out to be somewhat successful, just dress it up and call it new! This seems to be the approach that the big comicbook houses have when it comes to creating new story arcs. They are pretty committed to this Recycle, Reuse and Reduce mentality. At least Captain Planet would be happy! Well, actually I’m pretty happy about it this time around. Here’s a quick first impression on Marvel’s Civil War II, because the only way to top a big superhero war is to do it all over again. spoiler-free
Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, Daredevil, Sherlock Holmes…what do they all have in common? They’re great shows! But let’s face it, they have it a bit easier compared to Network TV shows (Gotham, Agents of Shield, etc.) since their seasons are much shorter. Less episodes = focused stories. Does this mean Network Television is doomed as more and more TV shows are following the easier and better short-seasoned route?
Netflix is quickly becoming a very serious contender with their ever-growing list of Original Netflix-exclusive programming, one of the most recent additions being a sweeeet reboot of a beloved childhood classic, Voltron – Legacy Defender. I had the pleasure of blasting through all 11 action packed episodes last week when it was released, and now I would like to share my thoughts with you.
Some movie studios seem to believe that saving the world from complete destruction is the most bankable movie plot. Having “Apocalypse” in the movie title and an extremely identifiable character of the same name as the movie’s villain will bring audiences in. But is it the best step to take with a new cast of characters that are less experienced for such a threat and new actors to the franchise that don’t have a connection with audiences yet? Is going apocalyptic a healthy sequel decision or a rushed endgame? These are the questions that arise after the previous film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, worked so incredibly hard to reboot the franchise timeline very cleverly with the help of time travel. *Semi-spoiler-free thoughts*
