Among the founding fathers of today’s popular superheroes, there is one man who has earned the legendary title of “king”. That is Jack “King” Kirby. Jack Kirby was born Jacob Kurtzberg in 1917. He was responsible for creating a huge part of the Marvel Universe. Beginning with Captain America, Kirby also created The Fantastic Four, […]

Ant-Man’s Fluid Physics

Wait… Ant-Man’s physics MAKE NO SENSE!   Last summer’s Ant-Man was one of the unexpected delights of the Marvel cinematic universe. Not only did it give us the one founding member The Avengers had been missing (albeit in the form of a different incarnation of the hero) it was also one of the funniest, and […]

You’ve all probably heard that Brie Larson is reportedly in early talks to star as Captain Marvel in an upcoming Marvel film. While she’s not someone named Katee Sackhoff, Jennifer Lawrence, Chloe Grace Moretz or Charlize Theron, all of which we’re considered for the role or fan favorites, Brie Larson has already demonstrated great range and skill as an actor […]

It’s unfortunate that ‘Captain America: Civil War’ arrives just a month after the other big comic book “Vs” movie of the season. As it is, there are going to be (no doubt) plenty of ‘hot takes’ comparing DC’s ‘Batman V. Superman’ against Marvel’s ‘Iron Man Vs. Captain America’ – which one is better, or more […]

In exclusive footage from Captain America: Civil War, we got to see #TeamCap […]

In which I list 2015’s best motion pictures, according to me, as I saw it. Except… Honestly, I kind of hate those sort of things. So, no. I won’t do this like a list. This is the year in movies as I experienced it. Good, bad, indifferent. WHAT I LIKED Upfront, I have to acknowledge […]

Meet John Boyega: “Attack The Block”

As the 2015 movie season draws towards a close, it has occurred to me that two of it’s most anticipated titles have a rather odd connection. And not necessarily the one you’d imagine. Those two movies? “Ant-Man” and “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens”. “Ant-Man” arrived with a lot of baggage this summer. I […]

Breaking Down the Card for Captain America: Civil War

Next May we will see the Marvel Cinematic Universe divided, specifically over the “edicts” which is some variation of the Superhuman Registration Act from the comics. In part, that requires revealing your secret identity. It’s an ideological divide, a political battle of safety and security over freedom and civil liberty. Last week my fellow scribe […]
