X-MEN: Dark Phoenix

Sooooo, Alicia and I go to the last of the Marvel series for Fox.  The last of the X-men series.  regardless of the bad reviews, we wanted to see this Marvel movie and see if this would transition to the Disney MCU or will it be a closure of the X-men saga.  Again will we be watching a good closing of the series or will this be another throw away movie based on Fox not giving 2 F's now that they won't make any more money from it.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

So today we went to see the smash hit “Into the Spider-verse” with the kids. I thought it looked cool because I never got a chance to follow Miles Morales when he was released in comic book form. So when they said they would do a spiderman movie with Donald Glover. I was like Hooray its the Black/Hispanic spiderman. Well, that didn’t happen and then we find out its the MAU (Marvel Animated Universe) with multiple spider people (if you call a pig people?) Very different concept in which I never quite followed but actually knew a lot about.

Bitten by a radioactive spider in the subway, Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales suddenly develops mysterious powers that transform him into the one and only Spider-Man. When he meets Peter Parker, he soon realizes that there are many others who share his special, high-flying talents. Miles must now use his newfound skills to battle the evil Kingpin, a hulking madman who can open portals to other universes and pull different versions of Spider-Man into our world.

Daredevil (Netflix) Season 3

So the Daredevil series. I wasn’t a big comic book fan of his but he always showed up with some of the characters I liked. So I was familiar with the origin and a bit with the Frank Miller series as well. I jump in on the 3rd season even though I seen them all as they released. I go over it on my own because of my Marvel obsession and how i follow almost anything  is released of Marvel Characters.  Here's my thoughts.

 

"Daredevil" follows Matt Murdock, attorney by day and vigilante by night. Blinded in an accident as a child, Murdock uses his heightened senses as Daredevil to fight crime on the streets of New York after the sun goes down. While Murdock's day job requires him to believe in the criminal justice system, his alter ego does not follow suit, leading him to take the law into his own hands to protect his Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and the surrounding communities

Venom (Marvel) Movie

We go to the movies very hopeful to see another Marvel series that may be interesting even though its not part of the Disney or Fox Universe. We have a anti Hero that started within the Spiderman series and moved along to become a stand alone character that Sony believes it can capitalize on. Here’s our take

Journalist Eddie Brock is trying to take down Carlton Drake, the notorious and brilliant founder of the Life Foundation. While investigating one of Drake's experiments, Eddie's body merges with the alien Venom -- leaving him with superhuman strength and power. Twisted, dark and fueled by rage, Venom tries to control the new and dangerous abilities that Eddie finds so intoxicating.

Iron Fist Season 2 (Netflix)

Alicia and I were very skeptical about this second season of Ironfist. So we were in no rush to sit down and watch it. Luckily it was only 10 episodes. So we checked it and out prior to this. This Marvel Netflix series was the worst of the bunch. Now we have something to really talk about. Thanks to new directors, writers and choreographers. We see a pretty good series.

The second season of the American web television series Iron Fist, which is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, follows Danny Rand / Iron Fist, a martial arts expert with the ability to call upon the power of the Iron Fist

Ant-Man and the Wasp (Marvel)

You all ready know, Alicia and I are marvel fans (not fanatics, I'm board line) so we had to go see the sequel to the Ant-Man first movie.  We enjoyed it and thought it was worthy for a sequel with the anticipation of The Wasp being premiered in the sequel so here we are on the premier weekend.  

Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy

Deadpool 2

So Alicia and I loved the first movie for Deadpool and was looking forward to the next release.  This one seems to be about a lot of supporting characters with Deadpool in the center of it all.  We sit down laugh, scream and criticize the part 2 version of his second release of this Deadpool franchise.

Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy of supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable.

Jessica Jones (Marvel) Netflix Season 1 and 2

Being a Marvel fan, and reading some of the later versions of the Marvel comics.  I ran into the Alias series that jumped into realistic problems people go through but just happen to be super powered individuals.   The Alias series centers on the emotionally battered Jessica Jones which Netflix saw some value to make it a series. Here is my take on season 1 and 2 and a little of the Defenders series.

This Netflix original chronicles the life of one of the darker Marvel characters, the mysterious Jessica Jones. When a tragedy puts an end to her short-lived career as a superhero, Jessica settles in New York City and opens her own detective agency, called Alias Investigations, which seems to be called into cases involving people who have special abilities. Suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, Jessica wants to do good, but her primary interest isn't in saving the world, it's saving her apartment and getting through each day. Based on a graphic novel intended for adults, this is not a superhero story for the kids

Avengers: Infinity War

So first I have to say.  OMG!!! Here's our movie review with all the spoilers and heavy breathing while we explain our experience with seeing the new Avengers saga.  So be prepared cause I reference the Comic series Infinity Gauntlet a lot but try to stay on track with the current movie.  Whew.  This was such an emotionally draining action drama.

Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet -- the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.

Runaways (Hulu)

Alicia and I had an opportunity to check out the Marvel series Runaway that was adapted to TV from the comic book series.  This delightful TV series was refreshing and the writing was a very well adapted.  Marvel has a good series on their hand on Hulu so look out for the next season.

After discovering their parents are super-villains in disguise, a group of teenagers band together to run away from their homes in order to atone for their parents' actions and to discover the secrets of their origins
