The growing Ant-Man franchise might not be the biggest money-maker for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but I still love it like all the rest! In fact, I kind of love it a little more, because Ant-Man is my favorite superhero in the MCU. And I’m so glad that his movies are so much fun!
Movie Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
I’m a little disappointed that we’ve got to wait all the way until March for Captain Marvel. That’s a long wait! Of course, I say that knowing that years fly by like the snap of a finger in adulthood, and it will be March before we know it, and we’ll be complaining that, “Jeez, it’s already March”, and another entire year will have passed to bring me and all of us closer to the grave…
But hey! Ant-Man and the Wasp! Join me after the jump for my full review. And expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie!
In fact, don’t read anything I write about this Only Leigh cartoon unless you’re completely caught up on The Good Place TV show on NBC, starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson.
Only watch this Only Leigh cartoon if you have already watched both seasons of The Good Place and maybe Avengers: Infinity War. Only those people who have watched both should watch this cartoon.
And if you haven’t seen The Good Place, go watch it now. Trust me, it’s totally worth the watch and you do not want any spoilers. Then once you’ve watched it, you can come back here and enjoy this delightful video.
Honestly, I’m a little surprised. The normally impeccable Only Leigh, of whom I am a huge fan, didn’t need to go spoiling The Good Place like this. I’m all for sharing in the awesomeness of The Good Place, but that big twist is possibly the biggest, greatest twist in modern television, up there with the Red Wedding on Game of Thrones. All for just a bunch of OK Tony Stark jokes? Don’t get me wrong, it’s of the usual high Only Leigh quality, but that twist spoiler has got to be breaking some sort of unwritten rule.
It’s Comic Book Convention time again! This weekend, I’m in Syracuse, NY at the Salt City Comic-Con, showing off Gamer Girl & Vixen to a whole new audience. This is the biggest convention I’ve done solo, so wish me luck! And buy my book!
This is a pretty nifty week for comics in that I’m mostly reading big names. Avengers, Justice League, Batman, Captain America, the Hulk, Superman; where are all my obscure, niche comics? Whatever the case may be, Comic Book of the Week goes to Captain America #1 for what looks like it could be an exciting, political start.
Meanwhile, I very much enjoyed Ant-Man and the Wasp! It’s a fun and energetic movie, much like the first. The characters are a joy to watch and Ant-Man remains my favorite superhero in the MCU. I think I’ll go see it again on my day off on Monday!
Comic Reviews: Avengers #4, Batman #50, Catwoman #1, Captain American #1, Go Go Power Rangers #11, Immortal Hulk #2, Justice League #3 and Man of Steel #6.
This one is pretty funny. The team at How It Should Have Ended has some pretty fun riffs on the movie, and some really fun alternate endings, before they get into their in-joke stuff. I like those videos the best.
It’s a heat wave here in New York and I’m keeping Monday posts light and easy. It’s more survivable that way. Avengers: Infinity War comes out on DVD in August.
This was a really fortunate week for comics! A ton of comics came out that I like to read, and since I had Wednesday off from work, I had plenty of time to sit and read a whole bunch! This is a jam-packed review column!
We’ve got some pretty stellar issues of Amazing Spider-Man, Justice League and especially Runaways, with some middlingly OK issues of Batman, Avengers and Man of Steel. The standout for the week — and Comic Book of the Week — is the first issue of Dan Slott’s Tony Stark – Iron Man. It was a fun introduction to Slott’s new series.
Meanwhile, I finished all of Gwenpool, and it was really nice, with an especially powerful ending. Totally worth buying all those books. Now I can’t wait to see her in West Coast Avengers, and I’m even considering buying her action figure, just to have a memento. She’s a really fun character.
Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #801, Avengers #3, Batman #49, Justice League #2, Man of Steel #4, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #28, Runaways #10 and Tony Stark – Iron Man #1.
