It’s been a little while since Marvel Studios released the fourteenth film in their cinematic universe – Doctor Strange – and it’s gone pretty well. So well, that I thought I’d start discussing whether or not we’re getting a sequel. However, I will be talking about spoilers for the film in this post. (more…)
Today I’m talking about the top contenders to direct Brie Larson in the Captain Marvel solo film. But first, let’s take a look at the Marvelous Bugle, and its opening story: Zendaya is Mary Jane Watson. (more…)
Firstly, I need to prepare you for a pretty different ‘look’ for Marvelous Monday. It’s my longest running opinion-piece series. I always try to change or tweak the series a little bit, and now I’ve decided to really copy some of what I’ve done with Testing Television.
In every post, I’ll mention the most important pieces of news in a section called Marvelous Bugle, named after the Daily Bugle, of course. And the other section of Marvelous Monday will now be called Opinion, and I’ll give my thoughts there on the topic I’ve chosen for that month.
This month my focus is on what we should expect Doctor Strange to make at the box office, but Marvelous Bugle will be all about what was announced at San Diego Comic Con 2016!
I’ve had a lot of fun doing these different top ten lists for Dagobah Day, so I thought I should maybe try to do that for Marvelous Monday. This Monday, I’m ranking ten of the best supporting characters. Villains don’t count. If you have your own solo film, then you don’t count. Characters from Agent Carter or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are eligible. Full members of the Avengers don’t count, not even Hawkeye, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Falcon, Vision, or War Machine. And I don’t think the new Spider-Man should count either. So, with that out of the way, let’s get to it.
I am, by no means, a big fan of the Captain Marvel character, but I appreciate the love a lot of fans have for her. Still, this character means more to me as a result of this blog. The very first Marvelous Monday, way back in January of 2015, was about who could play Captain Marvel. I wrote about Katee Sackhoff, Emily Blunt, and Yvonne Strahovski. Now, we’re hearing that Brie Larson, star of Room, is in talks to star as Carol Danvers. Why is Marvel going for Larson, and why are we hearing this now?
So, by now, you’ve all had a chance to see Captain America: Civil War. This gives me a chance to fully dive into spoilers in this post, so if you decided not to watch the film yet, you should probably check it out before reading this post. Today I ask myself if the Captain America-trilogy, which I call the The Man Out of Time-trilogy, is the best superhero trilogy of all-time. (more…)
Marvelous Monday in 2016 posts once a month, on the second Monday of the month.
In anticipation for Captain America: Civil War, I decided to write reviews for every single Marvel Cinematic Universe-film from the first two phases. I already had four written reviews (Winter Soldier; Guardians of the Galaxy; Age of Ultron; Ant-Man), but I thought it was important for me to state my complete opinions on these films, like I did with the original Star Wars trilogy last year. So, over the last few weeks I’ve been writing full reviews for all films released in the M.C.U. so far, with the goal of finishing the reviews for you today, at the latest.
