One More Awesome New Black Panther Trailer!

The Black Panther movie is about a month away, so how about a new trailer? It’s not a full trailer, just a TV spot that debuted last night. But it sure is action-packed!

It says tickets are on sale now. But I never worry. None of the theaters I go to sell out. I should be fine!

New Black Panther Trailer is Neat!

Marvel surprised us with a new trailer for the Black Panther movie, and it’s pretty neat!

If I’m being honest, though, I think I liked the first one better. And they should have re-used that car flip moment. It’s a cool moment, but if it’s the action centerpiece of two trailers, it’s gonna lose some of its energy.

Still, cool trailer, cool look at the movie and I can’t wait to see it in theaters in February!

First Black Panther Trailer Has Some Kick To It!

The first trailer for the Black Panther movie arrived tonight, and it’s got a lot of energy to it! I dig that! This is a pretty cool and exciting trailer. I don’t think I’ve seen one this good since that stylish King Kong trailer a few months back. Those Spider-Man: Homecoming trailers didn’t excite like the Black Panther!

I never had any doubt that this would be an awesome movie. And all my pinks are tickled that Black Panther looks this damn good already!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/14/16

If you’re reading this, then I am kickin’ back and having a great time at the Haverhill Public Library Comic-Con in Haverhill, Massachusetts! I’ve been to a lot of comic conventions over the years, but this is the very first time I’ll be presenting my own comic, Gamer Girl & Vixen! I’m very excited, and I hope it’s going well. I’ll do a write up on the event next week.

But for now, let’s enjoy some quality comics! Batman and Starfire both bow out of the New 52, Black Panther takes a crack at a second issue, and I dipped my toes into a few more non-superhero titles for once, with the return of Kaijumax.

The new issue of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers wins Comic Book of the Week, because it knows what I want, and it delivers without shame. Go, Green Ranger, Go Go!

My childhood

Also, in case you didn’t know, the Green Ranger is way better than the White Ranger. That’s just a fact.

Comic Reviews: Batman #52, Black Panther #2, Kaijumax #1, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #3 and Starfire #12.

Review: Captain America: Civil War

It doesn’t get much better than this. And I say that fully believing that Marvel can go even bigger, better and more exciting. If after more than ten movies deep into their film slate, Marvel can still produce something as amazing as Captain America: Civil War, then the future remains as bright as ever. This is the epic, spectacular, big bombast superhero movie that Marvel has been building towards all these years.

Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great.

Captain America: Civil War is a glorious mix of spectacle and drama, combining some of the most touching and important character work in the entire franchise with quite possibly the greatest bout of superhero action to ever grace the silver screen. The centerpiece ‘war’ between heroes at the abandoned airport is worth the price of admission alone. It’s worth of price of admission to every Marvel movie we’ve seen so far, building on almost each and every film to instill real emotional heft to these characters and their punches.

When Captain American, Iron Man and their allies face off in Civil War, there is real history behind it. We’ve seen the previous movies. We’ve seen the friendships and rivalries grow and build and strain. We’ve seen Steve Rogers and Tony Stark get testy in The Avengers. We’ve watched Black Widow’s character arc from the sidelines of other movies. We’ve seen Ant-Man consider calling the Avengers for help. This has been a journey.

Civil War is a movie for Marvel fans, for the people who have seen all their movies and probably held mini-marathons to gear up for this new one. It’s not ashamed of that focus, and it shouldn’t be. Marvel is producing a masterpiece on a scale never before imagined, and they’re pulling it off with such skill and excitement that I almost feel bad for other movies.

Like, do any of the previous Spider-Man movies even matter anymore? Batman v. Superman surely doesn’t.

Join me after the jump for the full review. There will be SPOILERS for Captain America: Civil War.
