Captain America: Civil War Spoiler Review


Friday night I saw Captain America Civil War in theaters, which like how in the original Star Trek films Wrath of Kahn, Search for Spock and The Voyage Home are called a trilogy. This film along with Winter Soldier and Age of Ultron, make up an Avengers trilogy of sorts.

I was actually a fan of the first Captain America film and Winter Soldier is my favorite MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE film to date. Winter Soldier was a good film outside of the MCU, and it help change the look and feel of the films that came after.

When the news came out that the 3rd Captain America film would be semi based on the acclaim graphic novel CIVIL WAR, I was excited to see two of the MCU’s biggest heroes duel in  battle of right and wrong. Then Spider-Man and Ant-Man were announced to make an appearance in the film. Which OK I get why Ant-Man was in it, his film did good and Paul Rudd is a face people know. Plus he was in the comic. Spider-Man how ever always felt forced to me. Since SONY messed up another Spider-Man film they made a deal with the MCU to use the character in this film.

Let me get to the real SPOILER part of this blog:

The film begins in 1991, where we see the Winter Soldier being sent out on a mission to take out a car and steal some medical bags, we are never told really what these thing are. We learn later that its the same stuff Steve Rogers was given that made him Cap. America. Although, the only person who knew how to make that was the scientist who was murdered in the first Cap. America film. I guess they somehow found notes and recreated it? Also after we see Stark’s hologram of his parents leaving, and then clips of the night Winter Soldier look out the car in 91′, it was obvious that it was Tony’s parents who were in the car. Meaning Bucky killed his parents. Now this is not revealed to Tony until the very end of the film.

The whole motivation of the film to why Tony decides to sign the Sokovia Accords, is because a mom happens to be below a university waiting to meet him and show him a picture of her dead son. Who was killed in Sokovia.

We also get to see our “villain” for the film Zemo, what a waste of another MARVEL villain. He kills a former Soviet General who had worked on the Winter Soldier project we saw in the beginning. He’s motivation for killing people, is cause is wife and kids were killed in Sokovia. Really? So that’s why he killed Black Panther’s father and several others? We find out through Bucky that the stuff he stole from Tony’s dad was used to create more Winter Soldiers like him. They were all frozen and Zemo finds them, and what does he do when he finds them? He shoots them in the end and plays a videos showing Tony that Bucky killed his folks. How he knew Tony would show up, who knows.

Another wasted villain was Crossbones. Here’s a character we saw in Winter Soldier that is a big Captain America villain. In this film we see that he has a team that breaks into a building and steals a bio weapon. He then blows himself up, trying to kill Cap in the process. He’s stopped my Scarlet Witch, but she throws him towards a building with people…whoops.

How I would have done this film story is so:

Start it in 1991 like how the film does, with Bucky being told the lines that put him in a trance. We then see him Attack the car and taking the super serum.

We then cut to present day at the funeral of Peggy Carter. There is Cap, Falcon, Tony, Hank Pym and his daughter, Scott Lang, Black Widow, and the rest of the Avengers minor Hawkeye, Thor and Bruce. Like in the film we see we find out that Agent 13 Sharon Carter is related to Peggy. That an her an Cap have been romantic lately. It can be here where we have Ant-Man and Falcon reunite, Hank meeting Tony. and then Black Widow telling Cap that Crossbones is attacking a city in Africa.

Now this cam mirror what happens in the film a bit. What I would add is that along with Crossbones are these group of super like soldiers, who speak in Russian, are working along side him. They attack the center of disease control and try to steal a bio weapon. The Avengers like in the film stop them. They’re mission fails, but this group of super soldiers destroy a building killed many people. Crossbones and his team escape.

Like the film we cut to Tony’s hologram with his folks, but instead of him talking to a university we have him talking to a High School. He can be going on a tour, visiting High Schools and offering one lucky person a grant. There he can meet Peter Parker as he leaves and they have a mini conversation. Camera crews are out when a woman walks up to him acting like a mom who’s son is interested in the grant, only to reveal that her son was killed in Sokovia and his dreams died with him. Having this be LIVE on television we see Tony’s reaction and the worlds as well.

Much like in the film again, Gen. Ross meets with the Avengers and has then now working for the UN, which Tony agrees with and Roger saying no. We add in some lines to Cap about how can they trust Ross to not take advantage of the Avengers powers when he himself created an Abomination. Echo back the The Incredible Hulk film.

Cap now working with Falcon alone on this decides that he needs to find Bucky and see if he knows anything about these Russian speaking super soldiers. Bucky is still a wanted criminal though, so if caught he will go to jail.

We also find out that crossbones and the super soldiers are working for Baron Heinrich Zemo, who like in the film uses the information Black Widow leaked out to find out about the super soldiers and the Winter Soldier projects. We see Cap and Iron Man try to convince each other who’s right. We’re then joined by Black Panther, who is there to sign the Sokova Accords like in the film, when its attacked. Also like the film Bucky is blamed for it, when in reality it was the super soldiers and Zemo. They blame the attacks on Bucky and the governments of the world go after him. Its at this point someone leaked to Tony that Bucky killed his parents and wants him dead. With Cap knowing this the whole time, like in the film, after the events at the warehouse in Winter Soldier.

From this point we see a similar situations shown in the film. But Vision is also being held prisoner in the Avengers base, to not only protect Scarlet Witch who he likes, but because Tony feels responsible for his creation and makes a deal to make him safe. It didn’t make any sense to be why they would be afraid of Scarlet Witch and not the thing created by Ultron. We see a fight scenes between Cap and Crossbones mixed in. Zemo, like in the film, uses the soviet mind control on Bucky. Which still works on him. However as the film gets closer to the end Bucky is able to over come it and break the trance for good. He doesn’t get re frozen like in the film…that was stupid.

Also when Tony meets Peter Parker, he tells him he got selected for the scholarship and that he knows he’s the hero known as Spider-Man. So that differs a bit from the film.

The film ends with Captain, Bucky, and Iron Man fighting to the death. Its at this point where Tony knows that Zemo was behind it all, but is so taken over by anger still tries to Kill Bucky. Its also reveled that Zemo is actually Red Skull. After the events of the first film, the Tesseract sent him to where Thanos is. There he tells him of his world and Thanos uses him to help take over earth. Captain is about to pretty much kill Tony, after Iron man when a shot rings out. Its Crossbones, he snipes Cap killing him. Tony holds his dying body, as he looks out to where the shot came from. Bucky is cleared of all charges of the bombings, but is arrested for the crimes he committed as the Winter Soldier.

The film ends as it began, with a funeral. All the Avengers are there and Tony gives the eulogy. The Sokovia Accords go into effect. With the Avengers now part of the government, and some of the team is still in prison.

The first after credit scene is the Spider-Man one that was shown at the end of the film.

The after-credit scene is instead pays homage to the first Iron Man film. Tony walks into his house and much like how Nick Fury showed up in the dark, this time its Star Lord and the introduction is similar to that of Nick Fury. Tony is defensive and shoots his Iron Man hand glove at him. Star Lord moves out of the way and tells Tony that a darker force is coming.


So that’s my rant about Civil War and how I would have rewritten some parts.

If you haven’t scene the film, go watch it and make your own opinions.


Here’s Spidy!


The new trailer for MARVEL’s Cap. America Civil War just dropped, and it was full of really cool action scenes, give us a more in-depth look at our characters and story outline. It also gave us our first look at the new Spider-Man, and he looks horrible!


I was so excited to see Spider-Man and even the way he was introduced was weak. Then the look of the costume and the really bad CGI. It looks like a cross between a bad cosplay and the Spider-Man from the 1970’s live-action show.



Plus his eyes do some weird motion like he’s deadpool or something. The Sam Raimi Spider-Man looked better then this. Plus the last Spider-Man suite was perfect. This just looks like a hot mess, and I hope I HOPE this is not the finish product.

Really I think putting Spider-Man in this film was just way to say sorry for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

We’ll see if they give us anymore looks at this new Spider-Man, and if those will be any improvement to this disaster.

Ant-Man Movie Review


Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd was the MARVEL movie everyone was worried about. Could the studio that made the unknown comic Guardians of the Galaxy  into one of the best MARVEL movies do the same with Ant-Man?

The answer is yes, Ant-Man is right there with the 1st Thor movie and Winter Solder. Its funny and full of action. What’s best about this movie is that it makes sense why the Avengers are not helping out to stop the villain.

Hank Pym must stop his former protege from creating a the shrinking process and put it in the hands of Hydra. When Scott Lang says that they should call the Avengers, Pym said that he tried to keep Stark’s father way from his invention, so he won’t just hand it over to his son. Makes sense, plus Pym wants to keep this on the down low.

We do get to see one of the new Avengers Falcon,  who Scott calls “The Pelican”. Falcon and Ant-Man get into a fight, Scott cracking jokes the majority of the fight.

The shrinking scenes with Ant-Man are like watching a 360 degrees camera.

Everyone in the film do a terrific job, Michael Pena is hilarious as Pym’s former prison buddy.

Michael Douglas is great as Hank Pym. What surprises me the most is how CGI has advanced. When we see young Michael Douglas in the 80’s it’s like the went back in time to get Gordon Gecko. If only TRON: LEGACY has the same CGI for young Jeff Bridges.

Corey Stoll from House of Cards plays such a diabolical bad guy. Bent on revenge against Pym. Although its sort of a sad story cause its the process of his shrinking formula that is making him crazy. Even though Stoll does not become The Yellow Jacket till the very end of the film, his fight scene with Pym is awesome!

Evangeline Lilly and Paul Rudd have a good chemistry on screen. Although her character does little in the film, all she does is train Scott to fight using his Ant-Man strength. I hope in the Sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp that her character is more fleshed out.

Co-written by Rudd and Adam McKay, and you can tell. The comedic timing of the film is spot on, and it works cause you have a cast that knows both comedy and drama.

Towards the end we get a quick line that sounds a lot like Spider-Man. Falcon is looking for Scott, to have him join the new Avengers.

And like every MARVEL movie we get an after-the-credit-scene  of Captain America: Civil War. Falcon has found Bucky and tell Steve that Tony can’t know, but that he knows a guy that could help.



So that’s my review on MARVEL’s Ant-Man. It was nothing like what I thought it would be, I really every aspect of this film. There’s wasn’t ever a point where the film just lost me. If I had to rank my top favorite MCU movies here’s what they would be:

  1. Captain America: Winter Solder
  2. THOR
  3. ANT-MAN
  4. Guardians of the Galaxy
  5. Actually, I don’t have a #5 yet, maybe Civil War will make the list?



Finally! The Age of Ultron Trailer I’ve been waiting for!


After all the dark bruiting trailer we’ve been given, that’s just the same footage over and over. We finally get a trailer that was fun, with humor and action and not all DARK KNIGHT.

It sums up all what you need to know about the film, gives you good look all the characters, shows us Ultron before his upgrade, we see the hulk buster suit, cool action scenes. That is what they should have given us from the beginning, or at least after the the teaser came up.

Does this make me more excited to see the film, no. However I will see the film and hope that there’s a trailer for STAR WARS: FORCE AWAKENS.

NEW Avengers 2 Trailer…cool


MARVEL just dropped a new trailer for the film AVENGERS 2: AGE OF ULTRON, and its OK.

I mean look, the first trailer was fun, the 2nd trailer was the same trailer but it gave us a funny opening. I also felt that the 2nd trailer told us to much of some parts of the story.

I wasn’t blown away from this trailer, It showed me nothing that made me go, “Oh wow!” At least we didn’t get that damn Pinocchio song again.

Summary of the trailer

We hear Ultron, we see him talk about how he doesn’t think much of the human race, which is what we got in the other trailers.

We see Tony Stark talk about how he build Ultron and talk about how important the Avengers are, Seen it and seen it.

Then some distractions of cities…again.

Then we see in one scene that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are bad guys, but then we see that Scarlet Witch is fighting with The Avengers against Ultron’s army. Telling us that they will infact be good at the end of this film.


So the plot of the film is that a bay guy, who is connected to one of the Avengers, gets super powers then builds an army to destroy the human race.

Well that sound’s like a rather, wait a MINUTE!

The first Avengers movie was about a bad guy who had connections with another Avengers who gets super powers and an army to destroy the human race.

How much do you wanna bet that the ending is them destroying Ultron and by that deactivates his robot army.

So if you liked the first Avengers movie then you’ll love this film, because it’s the same movie with darker undertones.

Plus they whole Vision sneek peek at the end, I honestly went, “Oh my Vision.”

It’s nothing, I’m people who don’t now comics were like, “What was that?”


So was I BLOWN AWAY by this trailer. No, not even close. I’m more excited about the possibility of a STAR WARS trailer being played before this movie!

“AGE OF ULTRON” new footage!

After all the news MARVEL dropped on us yesterday, last nights episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD gave us a new clip from AGE OF ULTRON. It was part a scene shown at this years COMIC CON where we see the whole team, including Rhodey and Marie hill (but no Falcon?), and there’s also some mystery woman sitting next to THOR. From what I’ve read online is that it’s not Natalie Portman, and they are keeping her hidden in this new clip.

What’s so refreshing about this clip is that we get to see THE AVENGERS laugh and relax as a team together. I know some people were complaining that the teaser trailer was to dark, so this may calm them down. It was a really funny clip and just makes me more excited to see this film!

The rest of the clip is just a rehash of the teaser with a few new clips of LOKI’s staff and showing the infinity stone.

What do you think of this new footage? Leave your COMMENTS and RANT away!

MARVEL Movie Updates!

With DC’s big roll out announcements a few weeks back, MARVEL has fired back hard! This may be because of the leaked Age of Ultron trailer we got, but the big MARVEL Hollywood press event has given us some KICK ASS news!


Its official that Loki’s staff does contain one of the gems that was talked about in GUARDIANS. I know many speculated that it was and now we know for a fact that it is one.

They also showed some live-action footage of the infinity gauntlet, which we got a glimpse of in the first THOR movie. But from what I read we see that THANOS is holding it. Now this many just be a tease to foreshadow whats to come and not an actual movie scene.

We got the title to AVENGERS 3, AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, which obviously tell us that the infinity stones and possibly the GUARDIANS will be huge part of that film. Which worries me because I fear that’s to many characters thrown into one movie, but I’m thinking the same for AVENGERS 2 so we’ll see. They will break up AVENGERS 3 into two separate films, May 4, 2018 is Part I and May 3, 2019 is part 2.


We got the official DOCTOR STRANGE logo. I just want to say that NO official announcement was made that Benedict Cumberbatch is playing DOCTOR STRANGE. Which means ether he’s not, or he’s in negotiations.


I think we all guessed what the title to Captain America 3 was going to be.


Chris Evens and Robert Downey Jr. made an appearance, which many hope they would. Kevin Feige did say that the CIVIL WAR film will be different from the comic but it will about the superhuman registration act.

Probably one of the biggest news MARVEL gave out was the casting of Chadwick Boseman as BLACK PANTHER.


It’s already rumored that the character that Andy Serkis is playing is a person from the BLACK PANTHER comics so maybe the rumors are true. Chadwick Boseman was a name that was thrown out of the role, I liked him in 42, I heard he was good in both GET ON UP and DRAFT DAY so I have faith that he’ll do a great job in the role!

They released some concept art for BLACK PANTHER and its very similar to how he looks in the comics. Kevin Feige did say that we will see BLACK PANTHER in costume in CAP. 3 and that he will be an influential character in the next AVENGERS movies.


Among some other news we got the title and logo for:


Will this film lead to the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY teaming up with THE AVENGERS for INFINITY WAR? THANOS will obviously be the big villain in the film with hopefully Karen Gillan returning as NEBULA.


I wasn’t a huge fan of THOR 2, the first one is still one of my favorite MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE movies. I have to wait and see what happens in AGE OF ULTRON and that THOR storyline.



Now the INHUMANS story may be connected with what’s going on right now on AGENTS OF SHIELD, but that all fan rumors right now. Not much was given on this film, but again they did say more news to come.

Look out for tonight’s episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD, a new full AGE OF ULTRON trailer to be shown with all new footage. I’m sure the trailer will ether be up later tonight or tomorrow for those who will miss it.

So what do you think about this major MARVEL movie drop? Leave your COMMENTS below and RANT away!

“AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.” EP.5 Spoiler Review


With episode 5 of AGENTS OF SHIELD we get a mixture of stories.

1. Sky’s father, played by Kyle MacLachlan, is some mad scientist who may or may not be an alien. I’m a huge fan of MacLachlan but I just felt like his acting was a bit hokey. Obviously he’s a nut and a killer, and I’m interested in seeing where his story goes.

2. Simmons’ cover being blown, and the introduction of Mockingbird or as I like to call her our Black Widow-est character.


Actress Adrianne Palicki is not a stranger to comic book based TV shows (AQUAMAN, SMALLVILLE and WONDER WOMAN). What bothered me about this story is that we had this whole plot of Simmons’ being the mole and learning all about HYDRA’s secrets, but now she’s back and really she learned nothing that is helpfully to taking down HYDRA. I really would have liked her see her continue working for HYDRA and maybe possibly have been brained washed into being a HYDRA agent and having Fritz help snap her back hence recovering himself in the process.

3. Coulson and his writings, and will we see him become a bad guy only to become himself again? Only the midseason episode will tell!


4 HYDRA, we know they want the object Sky’s father stole, but if they didn’t have it how did they create the stuff that killed the NAVY officers at the party? They said it was similar to what the object is made out of, but if so how did HYDRA get it? Was it from the Absorbing Man? Ether way I still want to know how Kraken is not an elderly man.


5. This is my favorite story, the Hannibal Lecter/Clarice-est scenes with Sky and Ward. Ward is by far my favorite character in the series and the one with the less screen time. Every time he makes an appearance its chilling. You know he’s a killer and traitor to everyone, but you almost want to believe him when he says he’s changed. Does he really feel sorry. or is it all just more lies? Again I hope he escapes in the midseason episode and ether becomes a good or a bad guy.

This episode was a breath of fresh air, I want this show to be more of a spy thriller series in the same vein of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., MISSION IMPOSSIBLE and THE AVENGERS.

Benedict Cumberbatch as DOCTOR STRANGE


Today MARVEL and DISNEY sent an email out saying that tomorrow they were gonna announce some big news at an event in California. Many speculated that it would be more AVENGERS footage, also MARVEL said they were gonna show some more footage for AGE OF ULTRON after this weeks episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD.

Another guesses many people came up with was that they were gonna show ether Ant-Man footage or announced who will be playing DOCTOR STRANGE.


Well according to DEADLINE Benedict Cumberbatch is playing DOCTOR STRANGE. Now there has not been any official announcement from MARVEL on whether this is true or not, but Cumberbatch’s name was one of the contenders to play the role of STEPHEN STRANGE, which got a call out cameo in WINTER SOLDER.


Other names that were thrown out were Jared Leto, Johnny Depp, and Joaquin Phoenix. One actor that I knew really wanted to play the part was Patrick Dempsey, he’s a fan of the character and I could see him in the role.

Cumberbatch though is on a hot streak with SHERLOCK, STAR TREK, and now his potential Oscar best actor nomination for THE IMITATION GAME. I can see why MARVEL and DISNEY would wan’t to go with him, one he’s a terrific actor and second he was one of those iconic voices We saw, or better yet heard, that in THE HOBBIT.

detail (1)

Again though MARVEL has not officially announced that Cumberbatch is DOCTOR STRANGE, but if they do there’s still another thing to consider. Will a DOCTOR STRANGE movie work, or will it flop?

What do you think about this news? Leave your COMMENTS below and RANT away!
