I have been meaning to cover more movie news on here and for whatever reason I’ve been slacking. That L is on me, but from here on out I will pick up the pace. I have seen all of the Marvel movies to date except Ant-Man because I have no interest in a guy whose power is just to shrink. Hard pass. Plus we already made a movie about that in the 90’s.
As of this morning Marvel released trailer #2 for their upcoming Blockbuster Captain America: Civil War and it brings a lot of heat. This movie seems to feature almost everybody from Avengers: 2, except for Hulk and Thor. In this 2 minute clip we see a whole bunch of people:
- Captain America
- Iron Man
- War Machine
- Black Widow
- Bucky (winter soldier)
- Scarlet Witch
- Black Panther (Trump ’16 Supporter)
That’s a whole lot of stuff to wrap your head around and fit into one movie, which we have just been informed this will be the longest Marvel movie to date.
I don’t really care about the general plot of the movie as it seems like a of political shit about how the Avengers scare everybody and they need to be slowed down. Nobody is gonna see this thing for the plot anyways. This looks like it will take awhile to get going and the first hour or so will be slow, but I’m willing to bet that once we wade through the more boring political plot lines we will get some sweet sweet CGI action.
I’m also hyped to seem Spider-Man finally make it into one of these things. He is a first ballot super hero HOF’er with a lethal set of powers and a witty and sarcastic vocabulary. I would be all in favor of a Spider-Man/Deadpool crossover down the road.
With all of these trailers and movies being thrown at us, there is no better time than 2016 to be a comic book movie fan. We just had Deadpool, which exceeded the hype in my opinion and is a flat out fun movie to watch that you don’t need to take to seriously. Not to mention there are a ton of movies slated for release one after the other for years to come.
Batman vs. Superman is up next. It looks like a flop to me and I don’t know you how in the world you can replace Bale with Aflec, but I’ll reserve judgment until I see it in a few weeks.
Very quick and not thought out list of best superhero movies so far:
- Dark Knight
- Guardians of the Galaxy
- Avengers 1
- Iron Man
PS- Captain America sucks
