On Netflix, Marvel shows are hit and miss at the best of times, not least because Netflix doubles down on misses as much as on hits.
Batman’s newfound lack of faith raises an interesting question: what do the rest of the folks in comic book land believe?
Batman is bigger than any one film or comic. He’s a myth that looms large over our culture, casting a wide and long shadow.
It was a perfect comic book film, a brilliant crime movie, a stellar action flick, an amazing superhero story, a nail-biting cop drama, an intense thriller, a political commentary, a tale of terrorism, and more.
Of all of Marvel’s early ’60s characters, Ant-Man, alongside Iron Man, was the most politicized. Both were sturdy anti-Communists.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about Spider-Man was the mind and abilities of the man who truly formed him. That’s Steve Ditko, of whose death the news has come.
From a standard SJW storyline of female empowerment and male incompetence, the film diverges into a much more interesting, universal, and realistic set of conclusions.
Not only does the movie get its themes confused when it comes to the villain, its plot is an embarrassment.
This weekend, ‘The Incredibles 2’ hits theaters, 14 years after the original. Before you go see the new movie, let’s talk about the original.

Each of DC’s major characters is essentially a sun at the center of their own solar system. Their gravity is so strong they maintain multiple planets all on their own.

The scarred heart of humanity that breathes life into all fiction is what makes Superman truly great. And in many ways his story is the story of America.
This little superhero film is a textbook in MacGuffin. It even has an extra featurette discussing the nature of MacGuffins.
‘Legion’ asks: What if a mutant named David Haller (Dan Stevens) hears voices in his head and at least some of them are not the thoughts of humans?
Yes, America, this is a story about the legacy of black pride and the civil rights struggle after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.
This solid Batman film is continued proof that the problem with the DC live-action universe is more complex than simply blaming Zack Snyder or saying the films are too dark.
If you forget that Wakanda is supposed to be in East Africa, it starts to sound an awful lot like a Trumpian fantasy land.
‘Justice League’ is more of the same action-packed boredom that Zack Snyder began in ‘Man of Steel’ and perfected in ‘Batman v Superman.’
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.
