Superhero movies, more than any other creation or institution of the last two decades, have created a common culture.
It is right to honor Lee; it is right to make a legend of him. He gave us myths we still find enchanting, both as audiences and as myth-makers.
We’re back to that original conflict of Season 1: What if the devil is stronger? What if he wins?
Critics pegged ‘Venom’ as not just a lower-rung Marvel film, but as one of the worst comic book films ever. Is it really that bad? Yes.
Of all of Marvel’s early ’60s characters, Ant-Man, alongside Iron Man, was the most politicized. Both were sturdy anti-Communists.
Not since Roger Moore’s turn as James Bond has an actor sleepwalked through a film like Rudd has here.
‘Deadpool 2’ has more action, laughs, and story than the first. It also tosses in enough heart to sweeten things up, without getting too sickening.

‘Justice League’ is more of the same action-packed boredom that Zack Snyder began in ‘Man of Steel’ and perfected in ‘Batman v Superman.’
Netflix can be happy that after duds like ‘Iron Fist’ and ‘The Defenders’ they’ve returned to something gritty that works without ridiculous fairy tales.
From the very first scene, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ emits a strong message about vocation — that is, the roles in which one serves his or her neighbor.
So, does the film do away with Uncle Ben’s nugget of wisdom, ‘With great power comes great responsibility’? No, it’s just softer in this film.
This new ‘Spider-Man’ has none of the sweetness of the old comics or movies, none of the suffering—but all the gadgets and heroism audiences want.
