doctor strange whitewashing

Tilda Swinton is an ethereal being who has temporarily taken on our form so she can grace us with her presence and quietly exude psychic waves that hint at the true nature of the cosmos, so it’s a bit of a shame that she’s currently at the center of a very human controversy. She plays the mystical mentor to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange, a character known as the Ancient One…a character who was originally depicted as an Asian man in his 1963 comic book debut. As you’d expect, the arrival of the trailer two weeks ago sparked a controversy over the whitewashing of this character and now, Swinton herself has responded to it.

Guardians of the Galaxy Fantastic Four Crossover

As of now, we’re not entirely sure what to expect from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, arriving on May 5, 2017. We know that Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel are back as the title team of space criminals turned heroes, but it sounds like Benicio del Toro and John C. Reilly won’t be back this time, according to a Facebook Q&A with director James Gunn.

However, in that same session, Gunn discussed a couple of comic book characters from the world of Fantastic Four that he would like to bring into the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise at some point. The only problem is that rights issues might make that a little difficult. Find out more about the Fantastic Four Guardians of the Galaxy crossover that Gunn would like to make happen after the jump.

jon favreau avengers infinity war

Before Jon Favreau was making money hand over fist for Disney with The Jungle Book, he was making money hand over fist for Disney with Iron Man, which of course went on to launch an entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. And although Favreau stopped directing Marvel movies after Iron Man 2, he continued to play a role in shaping the franchise as an executive producer on Iron Man 3The Avengers, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In fact, this summer’s Captain America: Civil War marks the first time Favreau won’t be credited on a Marvel film prominently featuring Iron Man. But that doesn’t mean he’s done with the MCU. The filmmaker has just announced he’ll be back as executive producer on Avengers: Infinity War, due out in two parts in 2018 and 2019.  Read More »

Deadpool Spider-Man Crossover

Now that Sony Pictures has teamed with Marvel Studios to share Spider-Man, allowing him to enter the Marvel cinematic universe alongside the Avengers, fans have been hoping that a deal might be in the cards for more crossovers with characters that Marvel doesn’t own right now.

20th Century Fox still owns the rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool, which means those characters cannot legally crossover into the Marvel cinematic universe at Disney. That also means the Avengers and Spider-Man can’t venture into any of Fox’s Marvel movies either. However, it sounds like Deadpool director Tim Miller is doing everything he can to build some bridges in order to potentially allow a Deadpool Spider-Man crossover on the big screen. Read More »

Captain America Civil War Review

After the collateral damage caused by the previous efforts of the Avengers proves to be too much for the world’s governments, the United Nations comes together to introduce the Sokovia Accords, a resolution that will turn the superheroes into a task force supervised and directed by the UN itself. But not all our heroes are ready to blindly follow the commands of an organization that could just as easily have an agenda like S.H.I.E.L.D. (or Hydra) before it, and that’s what leads to the titular superhero conflict in Captain America: Civil War.

The result is a sharp, astounding, action-packed summer blockbuster that’s the kind of superhero movie you’ve been waiting to see your whole life. This is a comic book film where the action is just as harrowing as it is entertaining due to the care and respect that we’ve come to have for these superheroes after spending a total of 11 films (not counting Guardians of the Galaxy) with them in the Marvel cinematic universe. Directors Anthony & Joe Russo have pulled together a movie that brings as much hard-hitting drama to the table as much as it does astounding action. It’s the perfect model for what serial comic book movies can be.
