AVENGERS HEROES: "CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR" (2016) Review

One of the more popular story lines to emerge from Marvel Comics was the 2006 story called "Civil War" in which many comic book characters from the company's franchise battled over a new law designed to have superpowered individuals act under Federal regulation. Kevin Fiege and Marvel Films decided to adapt this story line for the final film in their Captain America trilogy.

"CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR" features some differences from the Marvel Comics comic series. The latter featured the Superhuman Registration Act, which would force those with superhuman abilities to register with the U.S. government . . . even at the expense of their secret identies. All those with special abilities - via magic, science, extra-terrestrials and even gods - would be forced to register. The 2016 movie featured the Sokovia Accords, a set of internationally ratified legal documents that provide regulation and frame-working for the military/law enforcement deployment of enhanced individuals, particularly the Avengers. To be honest, the difference between the Superhuman Registration Act and...

In the 2013 Marvel movie, The Avengers, there are many examples of religious motifs. There are seven major religious motifs that I will be addressing; Messianic hero, immortality, free will and determinism, prophecy, evil, mysticism, and apocalypse. All of these religious motifs can be found throughout the movie. With many examples to support each of these motifs, I’ve chosen a few that I think best represent each religious motifs. But first, here is a quick recap of what happens in case you have never seen the movie…
The Avengers is about a group of superheroes and humans that come together to save the world from an evil being. Loki, the evil being, also Thor’s brother, comes from Asgard, and tries to take over earth so that he can use the people for his own ulterior motive. He uses the power of the tesseract (a cube with a magnitude of power and energy) to take over the minds of people and make them do his what he wants. Through lots of arguing and differences of character, the Avengers must work together in order to defeat Loki and his army. After many battles, and lives lost, the Avengers come out on top with the victory while Loki is taken back to his planet of...

AVENGERS HEROES: "ANT-MAN" (2015) Review

When Marvel Studios first announced that its new movie about the comic book hero, Ant-Man would be the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) second stage, I found myself scratching my head. Why would a solo effort like "ANT-MAN" served as the end of Stage Two? Why not the epic "THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON", which had been released two-and-a-half weeks earlier?

Needless to say, I had no idea what was going through the mind of MCU show runner, Kevin Fiege. So, I sat back and watched how he and the filmmakers for "ANT-MAN" would handle this. And I must say . . . I found myself more than pleasantly surprised. This surprise, along with the actual movie also taught me another lesson about making assumptions. One day, this lesson will remain with me and I will stop making assumptions for good. Hopefully.

As for "ANT-MAN", the movie created a small controversy when the Marvel and Disney Studio bosses decided to fire British filmmaker Edgar Wright and replace him with Peyton Reed as director. They also dismissed the screenplay that Wright co-wrote with collaborator Joe Cornish...

"THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON" (2015) Review

The Marvel Cinematic Universe, which first began back in 2008, edged closer to the completion of its second phase with the release of "THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON". This second film featured the return of the team of superheroes that saved Earth from an alien invasion in the 2012 film, "THE AVENGERS".

In reality, the movie began with the "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." Season Two episode, (2.19) "The Dirty Half Dozen", in which Phil Coulson and his team managed to infiltrate a HYDRA base led by one Doctor List and discover the location of the secret base of the evil organization in the fictional country of Sokovia. "THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON" opened with the Avengers in Slovakia, attacking the HYDRA base. Despite Clint Barton aka Hawkeye's injury and the team's encounter with HYDRA's new superhumans, Sokovia natives Pietro and Wanda Maximoff aka Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch; the Avengers prevail by arresting HYDRA leader Baron Wolfgang von Strucker and obtaining the Chitauri Scepter used by Loki in the 2012 movie. However, Tony Stark aka Iron Man has an encounter with the...

AVENGERS HEROES: "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY" (2014) Review

Most of the films featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been set on Earth - mainly in the United States - and featured human characters. There have been exceptions - namely the two "THOR" movies that were partially set in the realm of Asgard and 2012's "THE AVENGERS", which featured an alien invasion. For the first time, the MCU released a movie mainly set in worlds other than Earth. And it is called "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY".

Directed by James Gunn, who wrote the film with Nicole Perlman, "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY" told the story about an uneasy alliance between a group of extraterrestrial misfits, who find themselves on the run after one of them steals a coveted orb. The movie, ironically, begins on Earth in 1988, when a kid named Peter Quill is abducted by a group of space pirates called the Ravagers led by a mercenary named Yondu Udonta, following his mother's death. Twenty-six years later, Quill steals a valuable orb from the abandoned planet of Morag. Before he can get away, Quill is intercepted by Korath, a subordinate to the fanatical Kree, Ronan....

AVENGERS HEROES: "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER" (2014) Review

If I have to be perfectly honest, I do not recall the initial reaction to many Marvel fans, when the studio first released the news of the upcoming release of the second Captain America film. I do recall various comments regarding the first one - 2011's "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER". The comments for that film ranged from mediocre to box office disappointing. I found the latter opinion odd, considering that movie made a considerable profit at the box office. And besides . . . "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER" proved to be a favorite of mine from 2011.

It was not until the release of this second Captain America film was less than a month away, when I finally heard some excellent word-of-mouth about it. Some were even claiming that it was better than the 2012 blockbuster hit, "THE AVENGERS". Personally, I could not see how any comic book movie could top that. But I did look forward to seeing "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER" - especially after I learned that Robert Redford, of all people, had been cast in the film. I mean . . . honestly, can...

According to the new avengers 2 trailer,everybody seems to be against iron man. I have not seen the movie and obviously nobody has. this is a question for anybody who reads this article,why do you think everyone is against iron man?I am confused and sorta mad because iron man is my favorite character,and if they make every avenger against iron man,i don't want to like him as a villian. I know this sounds stupid but,i don't want him to be a villian because it will ruin the whole second movie,that i was looking forward to seeing in movie theaters. when i watched the trailer over again,i realized they were mad at iron man for some robots he created that turned evil. i don't know the cause for this plot,but i guess it is supposed to be interesting. i am hoping it has a happy ending.

It really was a brilliant idea to include the song as part of the trailer because to put it simply, any one who knows Ultron well enough would agree that the song fits quite nicely. Especially me. The song was part of the trailer because in the story, ???somehow, for whatever crazy reason they had ended up creating a crazy, psychopathic robot that wants to dominate the world. But think of it like this: "I've got no strings, to hold me down. To make me fret, or make me frown. I had strings, but now I'm free, there are no strings on me"=Ultron is built by ???, Ultron gets free or becomes "self-aware", Ultron challenges The Avengers, You get the Idea! It's also worth mentioning how Ultron makes a possible reference to the movie "Pinnochio" when he says "You're all puppets! Strings, strings!" Have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about or think I'm crazy? GO WATCH THE TRAILER! Everything I mentioned before is in there! Trust me! GabsSaw out! ;)

[i]In one of the opening scenes, the gang is celebrating with a swank party in the peak of Stark’s New York City skyscraper—formerly Stark Tower, it’s now the headquarters for the Avengers.

Tony Stark sees the soiree as a chance for the Avengers to schmooze with the city’s powerbrokers in a post-S.H.I.E.L.D. environment, showing that they are not merely superpowered vigilantes. Half-filled glasses of wine, bottles of beer, and partially eaten plates of sushi and cookies litter the tables in this three-story marble and steel structure, constructed entirely within the soundstage—complete with a loading dock for the Quinjet and an upstairs laboratory for Stark and Banner (Mark Ruffalo) to blind themselves with science.

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) has put aside the cape and chest plate for a t-shirt and slacks, while Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow has swapped her leathery catsuit for an empire-waist cocktail dress with a billowing skirt—which helps hide the actress’s...

"THOR: THE DARK WORLD" (2013) Review

As I had stated in my review of "IRON MAN 3", I had assumed that the release of the 2012 blockbuster, "THE AVENGERS" would signal the end of Marvel's multi-film saga about the group of comic book heroes and their government allies, S.H.I.E.L.D. Not only did "IRON MAN 3" prove me wrong, but also the recent television series, "AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." and the second movie about the God of Thunder, "THOR: THE DARK WORLD".

Like the 2011 movie, "THOR", this latest film begins thousands of years ago. Back in day (or year); Bor, the father of Odin, clash with the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim and their leader Malekith, who seeks to destroy the universe using a weapon known as the Aether. After conquering Malekith's forces, Bor hides the Aether within a stone column. He was also unaware that Malekith, his lieutenant Algrim, and a handful of Dark Elves have managed to escape by going into suspended animation.

"IRON MAN 3" (2013) Review

One would think after the release of 2012's "THE AVENGERS", Marvel Studios would call it quits on its saga about the team of superheroes who foiled an alien invasion in said movie. But the "THE AVENGERS" opened the possibility of a new threat to Earth, paving the way for a new slew of stories for the costumed Avengers.

The beginning of this new group of films resulted in the release of "IRON MAN 3", the third movie about the sole adventures of billionaire Tony Stark aka Iron Man. The alien invasion from "THE AVENGERS" had left its mark on Tony. He has become even more popular than ever with the public. The U.S. government (including S.H.I.E.L.D.) seemed to be leaving him alone for the moment. And his relationship with Pepper Potts seemed to be going strong. However, Tony also seemed to be in the process of ironing out the kinks for his new method of accessing his Iron Man armor - a method that turned out to be a technological copy of Thor's habit of summoning the Mjölnir hammer. His chauffeur Happy Hogan has been promoted to Head of Security for Stark Industries. But Happy's caustic "Super...

Claire Danes as the Marvelous Ms. Marvel
As Carol Susan Jane Danvers, CIA agent, we have the wonderful actress, Claire Danes. Claire is best known for her lead role in the spy thriller, Homeland. Her character, Carrie Mathison is more or less the bipolar Carol Danvers. Claire also has shown as a knack for scifi, especially in the 2007 Matthew Vaughn directed Stardust. Claire is an award winning actress who fits Carol’s age, 34, and has a long resume of amazing roles, even when the movie is crappy. Claire Danes is also very sunny and humorous, a great part of what Carol Danvers is like. Unlike other female actress who have been cast as Carol, Claire can go from zero to hero in a second. Her emotions are raw, especially if you’ve seen the Claire Danes Face Cry memes, from Tumblr.
1. The movie incarnation of Carol would be a CIA-SHIELD liason
2. Her boss and friend would be Helen Cobb
3. Michael Rossi would be her ex boyfriend and superior
4. Her assigment would be Walter Lawson, AIM scientist

Hey,


I was trained by Black Widow and Hawkeye. Coulson taught me how to be a handler and such. Stark tried to make me a suit, but I refused. He did build me a hoverboard, to make the commute from the Tower to the Helicarrier much easier. Either that or I ask my boyfriend, Agent James Morris. He will fly me anywhere in a Quinjet, mostly so that he can teach how to fly it myself.

Anyway, I will have my first story up by next week, most likely.

Hope to hear from you,

Agent Carly Thim.

My best friend of the Avengers is Steve Rogers, I get along with him better than my dad does strange I know. Like the others we hate Loki, I hate him more than others do.

"THE AVENGERS" (2012) Review

Back in 2007, Marvel Studios set out to do something that DC Comics managed to achieve some forty years ago through a Saturday morning animated series. The studio created a series of movies based upon some of its company's popular comic book characters. This series culminated into the recent hit movie, "THE AVENGERS".

The group of comic book heroes that became a team in "THE AVENGERS", turned out to be the following - Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, the Black Widow and Hawkeye. The first four starred in their own movies and the last two, the Black Widow and Hawkeye, appeared as supporting characters in 2010's "IRON MAN 2" and 2011's "THOR" respectively. And each movie, starting with 2008's "IRON MAN", hinted at the formation of Marvel Comics' team of superheroes.

Written by Zak Penn and Joss Whedon and directed by the latter, "THE AVENGERS" begins with Loki, the villain from"THOR" and the latter's adopted brother, making a deal with the leader of the Chitauri aliens called the Other to lead an army on Earth, in order to subjigate the human race. In...

Blade Banner
Hello...
I'm Blade Banner.
I'm 23.
I have dark brown waist length hair, dark brown eyes, and very pale skin.
My height is 4'11''
Don't mess with me.
I have a demon wolf named Senka.
She is about the size of a small horse.
And she will kill with no mercy on my command.
I am a lawyer.
At Banner Law Firm.
Melanie Carter is my assistant.
She has white-blonde hair, bright blue eyes, and tan skin.
She's 17.
Yes, I know what you're thinking, but here's the story.
I was walking down the street. I needed to look through the job applications for my assistant at my new law firm. Low and behold, I saw a homeless girl on the street. She looked close to dying, so I took her in. She said she was homeless, so I promoted her as my assistant. We became best friends, and she's the closest thing I have to family. Senka is also close to her, so Melanie can command her to kill. Melanie lives with me, and as I said before, we are like family.

AVENGERS HEROES: "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER: (2011) Review

I have been aware of the Marvel Comics hero, Captain America, ever since I was in my early teens. And I might as well say right now that I was never a fan. Captain America? Why on earth would someone like me be interested in some uber patriotic superhero who even dressed in red, white and blue - colors of the flag? This was my reaction when I learned that Marvel Entertainment planned to release a movie based upon the comic book character.

My condescending contempt toward this new movie grew deeper when I learned that Chris Evans, of all people, had been hired to portray the title character. I have been aware of Evans ever since he portrayed another comic book hero, Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch in the 2005 movie, "THE FANTASTIC FOUR". And aside from the 2009 movie, "PUSH", I have seen Evans portray mainly flashy types with a cocky sense of humor. So, I really could not see him portraying the introverted and straight-laced Steve Rogers aka Captain America.

AVENGERS HEROES: "THE INCREDIBLE HULK" (2008) Review

When I first heard that another movie based upon the Marvel Comics character – Bruce Banner/the Hulk – would hit the theaters soon, the word in both Hollywood and on the Internet was that it would be better than the 2003 film directed by Ang Lee, namely "THE HULK". Well, I have finally seen "THE INCREDIBLE HULK". Below is what I think of the film and whether I believe if it has surpassed the 2003 movie.

The first film that starred Eric Bana as Bruce Banner ended with the main character in South America, providing medical services to impoverished local citizens. This movie, in which Edward Norton takes up the role, picks up with Bruce in South America – namely Brazil. Only he is working as a day laborer at a soft drink factory in Rio de Janeiro, while at the same time seeking a cure to get rid of the Hulk within him with the help of an internet friend. At the same time, he is being pursued by General Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) and a Russian-born, British Royal Marine on loan to the U.S. Army named Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth).

Below is my review of "IRON MAN 2", the sequel to 2008's "IRON MAN":


”IRON MAN 2” (2010) Review

I must say that I am grateful to the filmmakers of ”IRON MAN 2”, sequel to the 2008 blockbuster, ”IRON MAN”. I am grateful that they only waited two years to make this movie, instead of three years or more. But even if they had made the movie more than two years after the original film, I believe the movie proved to be worth any wait.

Some IRON MAN fans and film critics have expressed the opinion that ”IRON MAN 2” was inferior to the original 2008 movie. I certainly feel differently. I believe that this movie was superior to ”IRON MAN”. Mind you, I could only detect one flaw. As much as I was impressed by Matthew Libatique’s cinematography, I must admit that I did not find it as impressive as his photography in the 2008 film. But I discuss this subject in greater detail, later.

”IRON MAN 2” may not have been perfect; but as I had stated earlier, I believe that it is superior to the first film. Do not get me wrong. I loved ”IRON MAN”. I still do. But in an article I had...

"THOR" (2011) Review

My knowledge of European-based mythology is very sketchy. I am familiar with some figures of both the Greek and Roman mythologies. But my knowledge of Norse mythology is even less. As for the many characters from Marvel Comics, I barely knew about any of them - aside from "SPIDER-MAN", until the past decade. One can only imagine my surprise when I learned that one of Marvel's more successful super heroes was the Norse god, Thor.

Based upon the Norse mythology and the Marvel Comics character, "THOR" is an origin tale about the God of Thunder (and several other things), and how he ends up on Earth and becomes affiliated with S.H.I.E.L.D. The story begins in New Mexico, when scientist Jane Foster, her assistant Darcy Lewis and mentor Dr. Erik Selvig stumble across a figure that has tumbled from a wormhole in the sky. That figure turns out to be Thor, the Norse god that was exiled by his father, Odin, king of Asgard.

"THE HULK" (2003) Review

Poor Ang Lee. His 2003 adaptation of the Marvel Comics character, Bruce Banner aka the Hulk, has been the target of hostility and contempt from comic book fans for the past six-to-seven years. After Universal Pictures had released Louis Leterrier’s adaptation back in 2008, many had declared his film superior to Lee’s movie. But after recently viewing the 2003 movie, I do not believe I can agree with their assessment. Mind you, I am not claiming that Lee’s film was better than Leterrier’s. The 2008 film possessed certain aspects that Lee’s movie lacked. But I also believe that the 2003 film possessed traits that were certainly lacking in the later film.

"THE HULK" was basically an origins tale about how a genetics researcher from Berkeley, California became a massive, green-skinned creature named the Hulk. Ironically, this tale began years before his birth. In one of the most original and chilling opening credits sequences I have ever seen, the movie revealed how his father David Banner, a genetics researcher for the U.S. Army, was conducting experiments on himself to improve human DNA. The Army,...
