Out of all the projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the Thor films had to be my least favorite. They are most likely everyone’s least favorite. By the looks of this trailer, Thor: Ragnarok will not only be my favorite Thor film but most likely my favorite film of the MCU. It probably will be yours too…..
July is here again and I’m not at San Diego Comic Con. But thankfully absentees of the convention are lucky enough to catch new footage of anticipated movies on YouTube! Here are some trailers, along with some of my opinions, for upcoming films for 2016 and beyond!
The largest collective rant on the internet has emerged after the release of Batman vs Superman. Reviews were mixed and personally I have a love-hate relationship with the movie. BvS was not on the top of my watchlist this year and was definitely not at the top of my comic book movie watchlist. That goes to the under discussed X-Men Apocalypse which looks and will be amazing (I hope). I don’t understand why this movie hides behind the shadows of Captain America Civil War and BvS because the cinematic iterations of the X-Men have been around for over a decade; longer than any other superhero franchise. I find that I am more anxious to see Doctor Strange and Suicide Squad than Civil War due to my slight disdain to the last MCU film Age of Ultron. But as time approaches to its premiere I’ll probably get super excited for Civil War. Which comic book movies are you most anxious for in 2016 and let me know what you thought of BvS in the comments below.
The big screen proved to be too small for the superhero genre as the Marvel and DC universes continue to expand on our televisions (nowadays the computer screen ). I have nothing but respect for the producers, directors and writers of these shows who have created unique and interesting stories for some of the most beloved comic book characters of all time. Some comic book fans have struggled to watch some of the shows listed below due to their over-jocular atmospheres or even their quirkiness. This list will not only rank the superhero shows I watch, but also defend some shows that I believe have received unnecessary backlash. Enjoy!
Personal Statement: Certain Marvel and DC shows are not on the list as I honestly view them as canon.
