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_Animated_Teaser_Poster.gif

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.

CUT TO BLACK

ANT-MAN WILL RETURN

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!

ageofultron

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.

“Age of Ultron” TEASER TRAILER IS OFFICIALLY OUT!

Yes once again just a few hours after I posted that the trailer for Age of Ultron was leaked and was taken down, MARVEL has just said, “FAAAAAC IT”, and posted the teaser up.

So if you haven’t seen the trailer here it is!

What do you think of the 1st official trailer of Age of Ultron? Are you excited, leave a COMMENT and RANT below!

“Age of Ultron” TEASER TRAILER LEAKED…AND TAKEN DOWN

8 hours after I posted my blog on the upcoming AGE OF ULTRON teaser trailer being released next week with AGENTS OF SHIELD someone has leaked the teaser trailer, and before I could post the link in this blog…they took it down.

But, here are some stills from the trailer revealing what ULTRON and the HULKBUSTER looks like.

So for those who didn’t get a chance to see the video let me describe it for you…

OH MY GOOOOD! This looks KICK FUCKING ASSSSS!

All my worries over this sequel was that can it keep that cool comic book feel like AVENGERS, but have that new edgy real feeling THE WINTER SOLDER had. The answer is a big FUCK YEAH!

When the teaser begins we hear James Spader’s voice as Ultron, we then see snips of what looks like a war going on. We see The Avengers and they look warn out and beaten. Bruce Banner is curled up in a blanket on the floor.

We then see our first view of ULTRON, he looks like a disembodied Iron Man suit, You can see where the helmet has been torn to show where his eyes and mouth would be, similar to how he looked in the comics. Right off the bat its obvious ULTRON is not going to be at all like the jokester Loki was. This machine is down to destroy everything in his way. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch looks like are going to be working with ULTRON in the film, so we’ll see if by the end they join The Avengers or not. Also we get to see the Hulkbuster in action like I hoped. It shows that Iron Man is actually in the giant suit and for some reason is fighting Hulk. Tony Stark in the teaser is sort of blaming himself for what happens in the film, could this lead to the events in Civil War and CAPTAIN AMERICA 3?Some other things I noticed was a bit clip of Nick Fury and Captain America’s shield broken, which was revealed at COMIC CON. I don’t think any of our heroes are gonna die in this film, I know people were saying that Hawyeye may die in this film but I also heard that he maybe in CAP 3.

So my hopes just got very high for this film. Can’t wait for next April!

“Avengers 2: Age of Ultron” TEASER TRAILER COMING SOON!

avengers-age-ultron-logo

I read last night after watching last weeks Agents of SHIELD that the next episode will have attached to it a teaser trailer for AGE OF ULTRON. I’m excited YES! Do I think we’ll see much of the film, I don’t think so and I hope not. One of the best teaser trailers I saw this year was for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. I was already a fan of the first film and that teaser just made me more excited to see the film.

Once again let me be honest about my feelings toward THE AVENGERS film. It was a fun movie, and it was cool seeing all these heroes unite and fight together. However, is it the best comic book movie ever? Hard to say, where THE DARK KNIGHT was a comic book film, it was drenched in realism that works for a Batman movie. THE AVENGERS have aliens and a Hulk, its more in the realm of fantasy films. So best comic book movie is a tie. Then we got THE WINTER SOLDER, which was sort of the combination of THE DARK KNIGHT realism and the fantasy of THE AVENGERS all rolled into one.

So with that all said, how will AGE OF ULTRON be set as? Will it have the super comic boom feel the first one had, or will it have that more real life feel to the fantasy? Obviously we won’t be given any major plots or nothing, I hope we get to see the Hulkbuster in action, but I’m really wondering how Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are gonna be brought in. I’m not sold on the look of Quicksilver in this film, the version that X-MEN gave us was so epic and funny I’m worried that version will over shadow MARVEL’s version. We can only wait and see.

What do you think about this news of the AGE OF ULTRON teaser dropping soon? Are you excited to see this team rejoin and fight together as one? Leave your COMMENTS and RANTS below!
