Let’s Look at Marvel Phase 3
Marvel Studios made some big announcements recently and if you haven’t seen them yet, head here for the outline of Phase 3. Before we continue let’s also put up a quick spoiler warning. This article is a discussion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) at large, so it may touch on some important plot points for previous films and rumours for Age of Ultron and beyond.

In a move probably unknown to most casual fans, plans for a Justice League movie involving Superman could finally be put into action with the knowledge it would see the light of day, thanks to a court ruling last Wednesday. The LA Times reports on how a court’s decision means that Warner Bros. continues to hold the rights to Superman, ruling against the heirs of Superman creators Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel. What this means is that Warner Bros.... 

The Avengers Assembles Opening Weekend Record at US Box Office!

The Avengers Assembles Opening Weekend Record at US Box Office!
Joss Whedon’s The Avengers has proven to be a fantastic start to the summer movie season, making US box office history by scoring the highest opening weekend EVER! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 broke the record back in July 2011 when it earned $169 million, but it could barely hold on to it for more than a year. This past weekend saw Potter’s wand smashed by Thor’s hammer after Marvel Studios’ The Avengers completely obliterated... 

The Avengers Character Posters

The Avengers Character Posters
It’s not that long till The Avengers Assemble (just over a month away now), and so some new character posters have been released, complete with typical heroic poses, as well as having some blockbuster-like flames and debris thrown in for good measure. Each poster features two characters, one in the foreground and another offering assistance in the background. They appear to be eying up an off distance threat, though your guess is as good as mine... 

The Avengers New Poster and Trailer!

The Avengers New Poster and Trailer!
So the latest poster and trailer to Marvel Studios’ The Avengers has landed. Unlike the US version, The UK one sheet shows that the film has undergone a name change and will be known as Avengers Assemble for us Brits. I guess the reason for the title change is so that UK audiences don’t mistake it for something involving John Steed and Emma Peal (if that makes no sense to you then ask your parents). Still, the poster looks very busy poster with... 

Captain America: The First Avenger Review

Captain America: The First Avenger Review
A lot has been riding on Marvel’s very own sentinel of liberty. Aside from being the final piece of a puzzle that’s been in assembly for close to four years, ‘Captain America’ also needed to represent the core of a super-hero team the likes of which Hollywood (and New York’s criminal underbelly) has never before seen– Steve Rogers is the ‘First Avenger’ after all. Whether Cap could live up to the hype and deliver a swift shield to...
