Three years after coming out of left field and becoming everyone’s favorite group of superheroes overnight, the A-holes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) are back in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The first entries in these superhero outings from Marvel Studios are usually “fairly good.” But that was not the case with 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which is arguably one of the very best movies to date in the MCU. So, going into Vol. 2, the expectations are fairly high. Vol. 2 hits all the right notes as a sequel; it’s bigger in every aspect – from scope to characters and action. Bigger can be better in many cases, but Vol. 2’s plot keeps those bigger things rather slender and rangy at times. But still, director James Gunn’s usage of these characters we’ve all come to know and love help propel this robust, entertaining sequel.

Marvel Studios’ ever-growing cinematic universe continues to impress. After introducing audiences to The Avengers, the studio started to venture into the lesser-known territory of their comic book catalogue in hopes of reaching more than just fans of the superhero genre. Most recently, they won over general audiences with movies such as a space opera that featured a gun-toting, talking raccoon and a comedic heist with a man in a suit that could reduce him to the size of an ant. Now, Marvel Studios goes further down the rabbit hole with Doctor Strange, which introduces magic to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) leading the way as the Sorcerer Supreme, not only is Doctor Strange a dazzling psychedelic journey, but it is also the best Marvel Studios origin story since Iron Man.
