James Gunn Explains Groot's Aging in the MCU

With Furious Fanboys still offline and without any sort of update on that situation, I decided to post this here because it's pretty cool and answers a huge fan question about Infinity War. In the Infinity War footage Marvel showed at D23 Expo and San Diego Comic Con, Groot appeared to be just a little …

Thanos' Black Order Arrive in the MCU With Infinity War

Created by Hickman during his absolutely epic run on Avengers (and starring in the Infinity event), Thanos' Black Order is making the jump to the MCU faster than almost any other comic character has. Marvel revealed statues of the four at D23 Expo this weekend, and the designs are comic perfect. All have their correct …

Doctor Strange is Now My Favorite MCU Movie

I saw Doctor Strange a week before release, in 3D, and I loved it. I reviewed it on Furious Fanboys then, and this weekend I saw it a second time on a 82' screen in 2D with Dolby Atmos and I liked it even more the second time. It should definitely be seen in 3D …

Collector's Corps, Legion of Collectors, Smuggler's Bounty, and LootCrate

To be perfectly honest I never really was too interested in those monthly delivery box services like LootCrate, but recently I've been looking at the Funko ones. I only have a couple of Pops, mostly because I only want to collect specific characters and not everything, but a bi-monthly box that comes with a Pop …

Before Civil War, Remember How Perfect Winter Soldier Is...

I'm going to be seeing Captain America: Civil War this Thursday, and there are already a lot of hyperbolic reactions coming out from screenings over the weekend. But before completely buying into someone who claims it's "the best Marvel movie ever", we have to remember how perfect The Winter Soldier was. The Captain America sequel …

Haters Tried to Destroy the DCEU...and Failed Spectacularly

After weeks of trashing Batman V Superman on social media and pointing to clueless critic reviews as justification, the haters who wanted to destroy the DC Extended Universe just got a huge setback today. They had hoped that Warner would cancel the shared DC cinematic universe and fire Snyder from Justice League, but that doesn't …

My Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Review

Normally I'd post this on Furious Fanboys, but I feel like doing it on my blog right now. As Man of Steel has been my favorite comic book movie since it was released in 2013, I was really looking forward to the DC Extended Universe kicking off in a big way. I still buy and …

Hollywood Has Targeted Batman V Superman for Their 'Superhero Fatigue' Narrative

Last year the movie "Birdman" won Best Picture. I don't know if you actually saw the movie, but it's a harshly anti-superhero film that was made as a rebellion in Hollywood against the genre. Despite comic book movies making a lot of money (except the terrible Fantastic Four), and audiences turning out to see them …

One Week Until Batman V Superman!

One week from tonight the follow-up to my favorite comic book movie of all time is released. Batman V Superman isn't really a Man of Steel sequel, that will come sometime after 2020 with the solo Batman movie, but it's the second installment in the DC Extended Universe. So far, based on Man of Steel …

Snyder Says Jena Malone Isn't Robin or Batgirl in Batman V Superman

Yesterday people found out that Jena Malone's Batman V Superman character won't appear in the theatrical cut, leading many to say that she's Barbara Gordon when she's not. Now Entertainment Weekly has posted an article about the Ultimate Edition extended cut of Batman V Superman, and Zack Snyder kills two theories about Jena Malone's character: …
