The trailer for the latest addition to the Star Wars Saga and direct sequel to the Force Awakens has arrived. In terms of Canon,The Last Jedi picks up immediately where The Force Awakens left off. Star Wars is such an epic franchise even though the timeline can be a bit tricky. With this being a direct sequel to The Force Awakens, that means Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, and the late Carrie Fisher will all be appearing. Episode 8 will hit theaters this December.
Although the trailer for the upcoming movie about the Asgardian Prince has been out for a couple of days, that doesn’t diminish how awesome this trailer is. This installment in the MCU and Thor Universe is going to be an exciting one for sure. The tone of this film will be completely different and really show off Chris Hemsworth’s comedic chops. Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and Anthony Hopkins return as Loki, Heimdall, and Odin respectively. Newcomers Jeff Goldblum and Cate Blanchett join the film as the former will portray The Grandmaster, while the latter portrays the super evil villainess Hela. Not to mention that a very special friend of Thors’ will play a major part in this film. Thor: Ragnarok will be in theaters this November.
One thing I love are movies based off comic books, and this time it is chapter 3 in the “let’s see who is the best version of Spider-Man”. The young actor, Tom Holland will be the third actor to portray our favorite webslinger in the past 10 years.This incarnation of Spider-Man is sure to be the best one yet. This film will include other heroes such as Iron Man and Ant-Man. Spider-Man: Homecoming is the webslinger’s first feature film since being tied into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Make sure to check it out in theaters on July 7.
“The Civil War begins”
With a bunch of characters giving us the feel of another “Avengers” type of film, Captain America: Civil War pits Captain America and Iron Man on two separate sides of the Superhero Registration Act. I recommend that you guys not only read the Civil War comic series, but also check out the video game, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. Although this game came out back in 2009, it allows you to eventually play out this major “politically” based storyline. The memories I have of that game are fantastic! The epic film releases May 6, 2016. Check out the official trailer.
As if the NFL and Roger Goodell didn’t already have enough issues to deal with. “Concussion”, starring Will Smith, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Luke Wilson, and Alec Baldwin is based off the 2009 GQ article, Game Brain.

Comic book fans feel rejoiced. Earlier today Ryan Reynolds tweeted out our very first look at Deadpool channeling Burt Reynolds. Deadpool’s outfit is straight from the comics. Ryan Reynolds is back at the helm as Wade Wilson, a mercenary who is going to bring laughter to moviegoers with his sense humor and breaking of the fourth wall. Deadpool is the perfect character to be adapted to the big screen. His interactions with the audience, and other superheroes should be priceless. I’m glad Ryan Reynolds is back again since portraying him in the Wolverine Origins debacle. He is absolutely the right guy for the part. So good thing they brought him back. Deadpool will be released in February 2016.
