Justice League Review

Justice League is a “step in the right direction” in that instead of tumbling down an upwards-climbing escalator on an endless loop, DC has now managed to brace itself on a bottom step, clutching the handrail in a dizzied, confused daze. Patty Jenkins blazed a trail for franchise improvement with Wonder Woman, but this Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon double-team steps right back into the Dceu’s own mismanaged stink.

Forced “humor” clashes with Snyder’s brand of glib intensity, action sequences rage with no captivation, backstory establishment gets tossed aside – but yes, it’s far more “fun” than Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. For whatever that’s worth? Marvel cultivated their rivaling luminescent, “bright side” universe through patience and genuine charisma – DC just wants to bottle the same magic, hellbent on replicating an existing formula without understanding.

The Justice League’s first venture is to prevent Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), a cosmic warlord,

The End Of Batfleck? Matt Reeves “Doesn’t Want” Justice League Actor For The Batman

All summer long, Justice League was dogged by allegations that Ben Affleck was weighing up his future as the Caped Crusader.

Back then, ardent Batfleck supporters brushed aside any and all claims on the belief that they were manufactured hit-pieces designed to stir up controversy. The ensuing ‘will he, won’t he?’ saga gripped the Internet for months, but on the eve of Justice League‘s theatrical debut, it now looks certain that Ben Affleck is headed for the exit door.

It all started when Affleck himself cast doubt on his future within the DC Extended Universe two weeks ago, leading many to conclude that Matt Reeves was ready to cast another Hollywood A-lister in time for The Batman. Fast forward to now, and with reports suggesting that Jake Gyllenhaal is high on Reeves’ radar, Rob Keyes of Screen Rant has offered a little context to the whole situation.

Blade Runner 2049 loses big, Wonder Woman 2 in trouble, Black Widow movie will happen and more – Weekend News Roundup

Blade Runner 2049 Loses Big

Sometimes a movie can get the best reviews and great word of mouth, but it doesn’t connect with an audience. That was the story of 2017’s Blade Runner 2049, which grossed just over $240 million worldwide. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie needed to make at least $400 million globally in order to break even, which means Alcon Entertainment and the film’s investors are looking at a loss of around $80 million.

Son Of Drago

Speaking of old franchises with recent sequels, the Sylvester Stallone directed Creed 2 will begin production in the new year and Mma star Sage Northcutt has revealed that he’s auditioned to play the son of Ivan Drago in the movie. Dolph Lundgren has already been confirmed to reprise his role as the Russian monster, so we could see the son of Creed take on the son of

Marvel Was Worried The McU Would Collapse If Thor Failed

Thor: Ragnarok is a monster hit and currently sitting at 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. Forget the fact that it’s the best God of Thunder movie to date; this could be one of Marvel’s greatest films, period.

To quote our own Matt Donato’s review:

“As Thor tumbles head-over-feet through the infinite cosmos, summons thunder blasts and tries to erase the image of Hulk’s gargantuan – how did Tony Stark put it, zucchini(?) – from his mind, “Cosmic Marvel” continues to evolve as the studio’s most fascinating subgenre. It’s where McU mastermind Kevin Feige allows filmmakers the most freedom, thus far.”

Not a lot of people had high hopes for the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU), featuring what many described as one of the blandest superheroes on screen, yet director Taika Waititi managed to give us a splendid adventure that had us glued to our seats.

Is Thor: Ragnarok the most overrated Marvel movie ever?

Eric Bay-Andersen offers a different opinion to Anghus Houvouras’ claim that Thor: Ragnarok is the best Marvel film ever…

There have been several superhero films this year where my opinion has greatly differed from the general consensus – I found Wonder Woman decent rather than exceptional, and I thought Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 was just as good, if not better, than its predecessor. Logan and Spider-Man: Homecoming were exceptions (I loved both of them), but the one superhero film that I simply cannot understand all the praise for is Thor: Ragnarok – it’s the most underwhelmed I’ve been by a Marvel film since Iron Man 2, and in this article I shall attempt to explain why (meedless to say, spoilers ahead).

The humour: yes, Chris Hemsworth can be funny, but that’s no reason to completely change the character of Thor to give him time to vamp – those

Is Thor: Ragnarok the best Marvel movie ever?

Anghus Houvouras on whether Thor: Ragnarok is the best Marvel movie ever…

Yes.

There you go! Nice, succinct, spoiler-free and to the point. I suppose there are those who want more detail, so allow me to elaborate. Spoilers ahead my friends.

Thor: Ragnarok Is The Best Marvel Movie. Better than Iron Man. Better than The Avengers. Better than Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Better than Guardians of the Galaxy. After four or five years of being completely ambivalent about Marvel Studios and their ridiculously similar, formulaic content I found myself blasted out of the back of the theater at the awesomeness of the third Thor movie.

How the hell did this happen? Let’s break it down.

It’s the most Comic Book movie since Raimi’s Spider-Man 2.

One of my biggest gripes about Marvel over the past few years is their attempts at bringing their larger than life

Thor: Ragnarok hammers out $14.5 million in domestic takings on Thursday

Heading towards a predicted $100m+ domestic total at the Us box office this weekend, Thor: Raganrok delivered an estimated $14.5m in Thursday night previews. That places it in seventh position in the Marvel Cinematic Universe preview chart (see below), just behind Spider-Man: Homecoming, which debuted to $15.4m earlier this year. Spidey went on to gross $117m for the weekend, so the God of Thunder should be there-or-there-abouts when the dust settles on Monday.

Avengers: Age of Ultron – $27.6m preview ($191.27m opening) Captain America: Civil War – $25m preview ($179.14m opening) Marvel’s The Avengers – $18.7m from midnight screenings ($207.44m opening) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – $17m preview ($146.5m opening) Iron Man 3 – $15.6m preview ($174.14m opening) Spider-Man: Homecoming – $15.4m preview ($117m opening) Thor: Ragnarok – $14.5m preview Guardians of the Galaxy – $11.2m preview ($94.32m opening) Captain America: The Winter Soldier – $10.3m preview ($95.02m opening) Doctor Strange – $9.4m preview ($85m opening

Every Marvel Post-Credits Scene Leading Up to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ (Videos)

  • The Wrap
Every Marvel Post-Credits Scene Leading Up to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ (Videos)
The post-credits scene is a staple of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — every McU movie so far has had one except for “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” The scenes have run the full gamut of tone, from funny to deadly serious. Some tease future movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and others were just there as gags. The stinger trend began with the first “Iron Man” film way back in 2008, before the Marvel Cinematic Universe was actually a thing — the McU began in earnest two years later with “Iron Man 2,” though that first film did plant the seeds.

Can Thor: Ragnarok and Bad Moms 2 Save the Sinking Box Office?
After a disappointing month at the box office, that saw highly-anticipated movies like Blade Runner 2049 and last weekend's Jigsaw drastically underperform, Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok is looking to give the box office a much-needed boost. We reported yesterday that Thor: Ragnarok earned $107.6 million during its international opening weekend, already earning back more than half of its $180 million production budget before it opens in North America. We're projecting that Thor: Ragnarok will come in at the top end of its recent projections, bringing in an impressive $124.6 million.

This Thor sequel has already made headlines for its critical prowess, with the first wave of Thor: Ragnarok reviews landing 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it has continued to impress critics since then, with an amazing 96% rating on Rt, with just five negative reviews out of 120. While the Rt rating could certainly change between now and its opening this weekend, the movie currently stands

Will The Merc Don His Famous X-Force Suit In Deadpool 2?

No matter how many times 20th Century Fox champions the Merc’s sophomore stint as a standalone adventure, Deadpool 2 and Drew Goddard’s nascent X-Force movie are inextricably linked. They share the same universe, for crying out loud!

Word is the latter is gearing up for a production start late next year, so it’s all but certain that Deadpool 2 will include a few winks and nods toward Goddard’s ensemble piece. Fox is yet to disclose an official release date for the latter, though we imagine it’s targeting a 2019 launch.

Regardless of when it arrives, Deadpool 2 will clearly serve as the springboard for Fox’s X-Force crossover, and though we don’t expect an overstuffed sequel in the vein of Iron Man 2, the hosts of Marvel Movie News (via Screen Rant) have uncovered a seemingly major clue that suggests the Merc With a Mouth

Film Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Film Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’
Hey, comicbook fans, it’s another Thor movie, and that can only mean one thing: It’s almost time for another Avengers movie! While you wait, Disney and Marvel Studios hope to loot another half-billion dollars or so from the world’s wallets with this outlandish amuse bouche featuring the God of Thunder and his Abs of Steel, with yet another confusing plot crudely bastardized from Norse mythology in which most of the action takes place on a parallel world you care nothing about.

Like Thor’s two previous solo outings (definite low points in the Marvel oeuvre), this one is pretty much skippable, although it’s not without its pleasures — most notably, the fact that Thor’s not so solo this time around, with cameos/co-starring opportunities for the Hulk, Doctor Strange and a few leftover bits of Tony Stark’s wardrobe (including a retro Duran Duran T-shirt that’s good for a laugh). And while it

‘Samurai Jack’ Creator Genndy Tartakovsky On Putting Sex and Violence Into the Fifth Season
After Genndy Tartakovsky’s cult animated series “Samurai Jack” was canceled by Cartoon Network in 2004, rumors swirled for years about a feature-length adaptation. Tartakovsky worked with four different studios to adapt his hyper-stylized blend of martial arts and sci-fi action for the big screen, including New Line, Sony and J.J. AbramsBad Robot, but none of them panned out. “As soon as we started developing it as a movie, they wanted to fit it into a box,” Tartakovsky told IndieWire. “I love ‘Jack’ as one of my creations and would never want to change it from what it was supposed to be. There was no reason to reinvent. It was working.”

Power Pack Movie Is Back on at Marvel?
12 years after Marvel used the rights to Power Pack as collateral in a deal that lead to the origins of Marvel Studios, the blockbuster studio is reportedly revisiting that property. A new report claims that, while we may be a ways off from a Power Pack movie actually happening, steps are being taken to put the movie into development, with longtime Marvel Studios executive Jonathan Schwartz being given executive oversight on the film. Jonathan Schwartz has been working for Marvel since 2009, where he first started as an assistant to Kevin Feige on Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, before being elevated to a producer on Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the upcoming Captain Marvel.
