The Marvel Cinematic Universe brings to mind many key characters that we’ve come to love and get to know over the years including the Jekyll and Hyde-like hero the Incredible Hulk, the American World War II hero Captain America, Thor the God of Thunder, and of course the richest most full-of-himself character there is; Tony Stark aka Iron Man. But there’s one hero on this team who never gets the recognition he deserves and that is Clink Barton aka Hawkeye. Continue reading

Venom is Sony’s upcoming Marvel movie. This is a film that has a lot of question marks surrounding it. Is the film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Is Carnage the main villain? Most importantly, does the film contain any trace of Spider-Man? After all, Venom had a very close and competitive relationship with the wall crawler in the comics and television shows. This film is said to be based off of the comic book storyline called Venom: Lethal Protector. After Spider-Man and Venom made a truce, Venom moved across the country to live in San Francisco.
It’s not a surprise at this point that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a divisive film. While it has so far made over $1.3 billion dollars worldwide, there are still people out there that consider this movie a massive failure. You cannot deny that box office wise The Last Jedi has surpassed all expectations. However, Rian Johnson’s take on the Star Wars story has left fans scratching their heads.
Whether you liked the answers or not, Star Wars: The Last Jedi resolved a lot of fans questions regarding certain characters of the franchise; Rey was not Luke’s or Obi-Wan’s daughter, Kylo does not turn over to the light side, and Snoke is not Darth Plagueis. While these may or may not have been the answers fans were looking for, Rian Johnson took risks and helped carry this franchise in a bold new direction.

This holiday weekend brought me a lot of joy, because it was the first Thanksgiving in quite some time where I had the privilege to spend time with my family. There’s a lot to be thankful for, but I want to write a special thank you to Movie Pilot and what they have accomplished over the years. What turned into a hobby of mine, became something so much more. Many writers have their own stories to tell. Here is mine… Continue reading

Justice League spoilers ahead!
Whether you enjoyed Justice League or not, you have to admit that those end credit scenes were stellar. I never thought I’d see the day when Superman would face off against the Flash in a sequence taken straight out of the comics. The second post credit scene however was much different and could help turn the tide of the DC cinematic universe. Continue reading
