  • What’s The Deal With The Marvel Civil War Meme?

    For about a week now, Tumblr (and by association everybody else) has been contemplating various frivolous reasons for Captain America and Iron Man to go to war in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. The premise of the meme is pretty simple: someone, usually Tony, says something unpopular or even downright offensive, Steve Rogers reacts, and thus […]


  • Fans Are Having Way Too Much Fun Casting Captain Marvel

    Those that understand Carol Danvers’ impact on comics fans – particularly women – probably aren’t surprised by the enthusiasm for this upcoming movie. And for those who haven’t experienced Carol-fever before, it’s kind of difficult to describe her importance – but you’ll understand when you see thousands of little girls dressed as Captain Marvel on […]


  • Where is Fox’s Solo Female Superhero Film?

    There has been a lot of development on the superhero film front with both Warner Brothers and Marvel Studios announcing new titles. Fox also tried to be part of the bandwagon by announcing a solo Gambit movie. But unlike the other two studios, Fox has yet to announce a solo female superhero film. Why? I’m […]


  • Should Marvel Cinematic Universe, Fox and Sony join hands?

    Ever wondered why theaters are bombarded with superhero films every year? Well, that’s because different studios own rights to different characters and all of them want a piece of the superhero-film-money-making-pie. So, should these studios band together and make one gigantic superhero film? Let’s take a look! For those of you who might not know, […]


  • Recommendation: Slither and Super

    The much anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, will be released in just over a month. In preparation for the film, and to know what to expect from the director/co-writer James Gunn, I recommend two of his other films: Slither and Super. Slither is a horror/comedy, mainly influenced by older B-movies. The plot focuses on […]


  • Our First Glimpse at Ant-Man

    On Tuesday ABC aired an hour-long special titled Marvel: Assembling a Universe.  Though this was essentially just a lengthy commercial for the film franchise, it was quite remarkable.  It took us back to Hulk and the first Iron Man film and explained how this wonderful version of the Marvel universe came into being.  We saw […]



  • Doctor Strange Movie Essentially Confirmed, But When?

    I don’t like to list anything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as “confirmed” until a release date is set, but comments by good-old Kevin Feige have essentially laid out three possible release dates for Doctor Strange and indicated that they are making progress on hiring people for the project.  It’s now not a matter of […]


  • Solo Black Widow Film, Not Quite Confirmed, But Close

    Just two days ago I mentioned that Kevin Feige, the President of Production at Marvel, was dropping hints about a Black Widow solo film in my Status of the Marvel Cinematic Universe post.  The Mary Sue earlier broke the news that Marvel committed to the film, but quickly backed off of their story.  According to […]


  • Give Me a #!$?@*)% Black Widow Movie

    This last year has been an interesting one for women in comic book movies. We got Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises and Natasha Romanov in The Avengers. Compare that to 2011, when the most prominent Marvel women on the big screen were Peggy Carter and Jane Foster of Captain America and Thor. Now, […]
