Trailer Alert – Black Panther

WELL THEN! Looks like Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) has been busy since we last saw him getting his arm ripped off by Ultron. This is a nice little snippet, but I need more! Especially of Michael B. Jordan’s character.

Trailer Alert – Thor Ragnarok

So much parody between Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” and the plot of “Ragnarok.” Let’s give a round of applause for the people picking/picked the music for 2016 and 2017 trailers. Excellent work.

Initial reactions: No! Not Mjolnir! | YES! Bruce Banner returns!

I got to be honest, I wasn’t super looking forward to this movie. I just recently watch the other two Thor movies, and while they were good, there is just so much coming out this year that I was more excited for. This trailer changed that really quick.

Check out Thor’s new haircut.

Trailer Alert – The Defenders

My body is ready.

I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for something that showed me so little. Granted, this isn’t really a trailer – more of a teaser, but it doesn’t make me any less excited for the 6th installment in the Marvel Netflix universe. My one wish for this series is a cameo from Frank Castle. Please and thank you. The Defenders drops on Netflix on August 18th.

Want a little more? Here’s the teaser from last year’s Comic-Con

I NEED a Marvel Movie Starring Thor and Darryl

The following video was shown at SDCC and hasn’t seen the light of tday since then…until now. Enjoy.

If Marvel doesn’t immediately start production on Thor 4: The Adventures of Thor and Darryl, then they clearly don’t know their fans.

MattStar Review: Captain America Civil War

Spoilers ahead, tread lightly friends.

At this point in time just about every blog, website and YouTuber on the internet has a review for Captain America Civil War (CACW), and guess what? Here’s one more. Read it and weep superhero tears.

Coming into CACW, Captain America ruled the roost (IMO) as far as super hero movies go. The first one was a surprising masterpiece (even for an early MCU movie) and the sequel, Winter Solider, played a huge part in laying the foundation for Age of Ultron and CACW. The gray area between regulated super heroism and borderline vigilantism was born in these movies and will be felt through the third phase of the MCU.

hqdefaultMy boner for Captain America aside, I thought CACW was the BEST Marvel superhero movie to date (Yes, even better than Ben Affleck’s Daredevil). The main reason I tip my hat to this movie, over other Marvel installments, was a simple one, the chess game it played with our favorite heroes. CACW was able to play up 10+ superheroes in a manner that wasn’t overwhelming or that felt uneven. Every hero got his or her time to shine, with Capt. and Tony holding the story together. It worked brilliantly!

Ant-man, Black Panther and Spiderman (how about smoking hot Aunt May??) all were able to share the silver screen without taking away from each other or sacrifice their personalty, which are all very distinct. Like I said, a game of chess.

I was looking forward to this movie so much and it did not let me down. The MCU is in excellent shape with very exciting, new, installments coming down the pike. I give it 9.03452 MattStars (out of a perfect 10.5 MattStars)
