Thanos better watch out in next month’s Avengers: Endgame because the Avengers’ secret weapon is coming: Captain Marvel.
That’s not a spoiler from Captain Marvel, the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). For those who saw last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, audiences were teased at movie’s end via a pager that the “most cosmic superhero of all” is on her way. And ever since then, audiences eagerly have been awaiting the female heroine’s big screen debut. Surprisingly, and despite being formulaic, the first female superhero movie in the MCU (only took 11 long years); Captain Marvel is another bonafide entry in the ever-growing superhero movie universe thanks to a likeable lead heroine in Brie Larson, her supporting cast, and some fantastic action sequences and visual effects.
Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (NAOMI, BUFFY & LIVEWIRE).

Here is a list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop.Read more

Its been ten years since Marvel kicked off their cinematic universe. Back in 2008, Iron Man hit theaters with a powerhouse origin story that lifted the superhero genre into the blockbuster limelight. With the release of Avengers: Infinity Warthis weekend movie history will be made with the end game of 10 years of groundwork laid out by all the previous films. Every character in the MCU will be a part of this epic showdown with the Mad Titan, Thanos. What better way to prep for the end of the first ten years of the MCU than to review the last 18 films in the franchise. Read more
Ten years and 18 movies later have led to Avengers: Infinity War, the movie that changes everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). And with Thanos, the evil-lurking presence teased over the years in various MCU films, finally coming out from the shadows, the significant ramifications viewers will witness at the hands of the intergalactic despot in Infinity War are sure to cause a stir of emotion with fans who have followed these superheroes over the last decade. When you bring together the original Avengers mixed with new Avengers (Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man) and the Guardians of the Galaxy to take down the biggest threat the universe has ever seen, on paper, it might feel a little overwhelming to pack this many superheroes into one two and a half hour movie. However, with the Russo Brothers, the directing duo behind the two best movies in the MCU (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War), overseeing the biggest ever ensemble of superheroes assembled on screen, rest assured they manage to give balance to all these characters we have come to know for the entire duration of Infinity War. The result is equally thrilling, captivating, emotional, and, not so shockingly, epic all at once.
