Film Review Comics | Marvel A twist in the tale makes this origin story different enough to be compelling.
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.

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.
