    There’s been buzz over Scarlett Johansson‘s Black Widow– so far the queen bee of the Marvel Cinematic Universe– getting her own movie at some point.  Fans, including young girls, have embraced this catsuit-wearing butt-kicker.  But we know ‘Captain Marvel’ (or ‘The Wasp’ depending on how you look at it) will be the first Marvel female […]

    Marvel Comics has done a wondrous job with diversifying their comic line; incorporating Miles Morales into the mainstream 616 universe, introducing Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel and making Jane Foster Thor just to name a few.  But feathers were a little ruffled when it was announced that the new Iron Man would actually be a […]

  • Weekend Box Office (08/19-08/21): Oops, ‘Suicide Squad’ Slayed It Again; More Like ‘Ben-Hur’-And-Gone

    Some are estimating that 2016 will go down as the worst grossing movie in 100 years when it comes to movie ticket sales and this weekend was certainly lackluster enough to reinforce that. Studios might want to take note, though.  Last year, a movie that is generally considered a flop, Warner Brothers’ ‘The Man From […]

    As many fans of the Arrowverse are already aware, this season there are going to be some major cross-over events, events which will most likely bring the world of ‘Supergirl’ into realm of Earth-1, and hopefully result in some epic moments when all of the heroes of the four CW DC shows (‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash,’ ‘Legends […]

  • Not A Sham: ‘Shazam’ Movie Will Take Place In DCEU; Zack Snyder Will NOT Be Involved

    Posted Thursday, August 18th, 2016 09:00 am GMT -4

    In what is probably one of the smartest decisions I have seen a DCEU production make, the producers of ‘Shazam’ are crafting their film, which will indeed take place in the DCEU, entirely without Zack Snyder’s involvement. Apparently, that was a key negotiation point when they were talking about creating the film, and it is […]

    Ah, “what could have been” – in the realm of cinema, it’s a question asked by fans, studio executives, and creative types alike when a movie massively underperforms.  In most situations (but not all), movies tank simply because they’re bad, but other factors can come into play as well, including bad advance press, dislike for […]

    Even though we all have heard the statements from Netflix saying that they will only be releasing 2 Marvel shows a year (which is why we have to wait for 2018 to get ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2), it seems there is still hope that the company might be changing its tune when it comes to […]
