So here it finally is. Since its announcement back in 2014 we've all been eagerly awaiting this Marvel milestone, lapping up every bit of news until today. So, what did I think?
Captain America: Civil War has been called "Avengers 3" by some people because of the amount of Avengers that star in the film and it's a valid observation...until you see the movie. Somehow the Russo Brothers, with this huge ensemble cast, dealing with the Avengers themselves, adapting an infamous comic book actually make it still feel like a Captain America movie - which is great! I mean don't get me wrong, you see a lot of other characters and I loved seeing a lot of other characters but it really worked well continuing Cap's story that was left off in The Winte…Read more >
So the final film of Phase 2 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Ant-Man; as some of you may know this film has been in production a long time and has had various troubles behind the scenes, but how did it end up?
Well for starters, the cast is brilliant; Paul Rudd is perfect as this everyman kinda guy who also is a bit of a cat burgler, he has some great comedic lines and has good chemistry with the rest of the cast. Michael Douglas is an awesome Hank Pym , he does the dramatic moments excellently and even pulls off a few jokes too. All the other cast were great as well but I do have to mention Michael Peña, he delivers some of the best lines in the movie and is an all-round entertaining character.
Next I'll come to the story. Much like …Read more >
Coulson and his team are back! Well, they added some new people and technically one old member left... also Coulson isn't really feeling himself, so... S.H.I.E.L.D. is back!...oh wait.
As you know, the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was not great, only getting better in the final episodes; thankfully this season continued on it's path of better quality as it is now actually a pretty decent show.
Since the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier Coulson has collected a few more team mates and is running special little missions as a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. organization; which is cool to see them as this special task-force in contrast to the big shiny S.H.I.E.L.D. we all used to know. Unlike the first season, this one doesn't do the whol…

[SPOILER FREE] [ALTHOUGH SOME MAY THINK THERE ARE MINOR ONES]
So after a very successful first film in what is a very popular franchise Avengers: Age of Ultron brings the team back together for another world-saving event. This time, instead of Tom Hiddleston 's power-hungry Loki , it's the menacing A.I. robot played brilliantly by James Spader.
Straight out the gate, you have to mention Spader as Ultron; he does a fantastic job doing the voice and motion-capture, bringing all his manerisms to the character which in an 8-foot robot, is pretty cool. Definitly one of the stonger villians in the MCU and has some great lines.
The Avengers themselves are always a plus, seeing them all together is entertaining no matter what, when they're socializi…

Marvel 's last series wasn't received to well, I think a redemption has come though.
When I heard there was going to be an Agent Carter TV series , I thought that was great because I loved the Marvel One-Shot they did, I think it's the best one. I think the majority of what's riding on this shows success is the lead; fortunately Hayley Atwell pulls it off perfectly as the titular character. You're with Peggy every step of the way and you know she's a strong, independent character who holds her own. Atwell does brilliantly in this role and am always glad to see her in the films and TV series. Dominic Cooper also returns as Howard Stark who is OK, but can never have the charm and charisma of Robert Downey Jr , so he serves his purpose the sho…Read more >
