Film Review Comics | Marvel A twist in the tale makes this origin story different enough to be compelling.
In the wake of the tepid reaction to Dark Phoenix being released this month, it is fairly obvious that the movie franchise that undoubtedly paved the way for the hugely ambitious Marvel Cinematic Universe has reached an end, leaving on a whimper instead of a bang. I am a huge fan of the X-Men. I…
Dark Phoenix doesn’t do to superhero film what its comic-book adaptation did for its genre, but is a solid instalment to the franchise. Starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp and Jessica Chastain With all the Beatles-mania level of hype surrounding Avengers: Endgame smashing virtually every record…

Film Reviews Comics | Marvel | The Avengers Avengers: Endgame succeeds not through its blockbuster action sequences, but its appeal is to be found in the quieter moments of exploration with these familiar characters.

11 years, 22 films, 47 hours and 58 minutes later, we reach a satisfying conclusion to a story on an unprecedented epic scale. It is a movie franchise that the world has never seen, and will likely never experience again. After all, the ambition and the complexity of the shared universe we have seen created has seen many other franchises dead in the water for failing to capture the spark and unique formula that Marvel have adopted (cough, DCEU, cough). While essentially breaking the film economy by making any other film’s earnings pale in comparison, eyes are on Marvel to see how they tie up the franchise they have spend more than a decade giving life to. Once again, Marvel redefine what it means to be a superhero movie and how, even though we are talking about superpowers and cosmic forces, you can create a story that is rooted within human emotion.
