While DC/Warner Bros. have made strides including LGBT superheroes into their TV properties (albeit not such a great record on the movie front), Marvel/Disney is lagging behind. Things have been a little better at Fox, who've given us hints at Deadpool's bisexuality and paired him with the lesbian Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and made a series for the LGBT-friendly Runaways. Now that Disney has the rights to the Fox/X-Men characters, it's time they moved forward and gave us some serious LGBT representation on the big and small screens.
Batman is one of the most popular superheroes of all time and is beloved by both superhero fans and movie fans alike. Many actors have attempted to dawn the cape and cowl, bringing audiences some amazing, and some... not so amazing performances. With so many actors playing the Dark Knight many people consistently debate who exactly was the best. To decide objectively we will see how each actor fared under certain criteria and the winner of each criteria gets one point. The Batman with the most points is THE BEST BATMAN.
How do we react on the edge of crisis? Some people get paralyzed in panic, others get angry and frustrated under the weight of futility, especially if those people are real people like you and me that can’t respawn like in a videogame if the wrong decision is taken. Happily, we have fiction to rehearse that.
Sometimes, I think that my life might have flowed in an entirely different direction had I not been alive to witness The Powerpuff Girls. The brilliant television animation series that aired from 1998 to 2005 (and not, it should be pointed out, the recent and feeble attempt to revive past glory on the part of its network by reviving it) and its marvelous lead characters both.
Ever since Zack Snyder took over as director of the latest DC Comics films (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Justice League) some of his creative choices have been...controversial, to say the least. Fans have been highly divided on the films, and the critical reception has been less than stellar. However, many people agree that the director's cut of Batman v Superman is a marked improvement over the theatrical release, adding to character arcs, explaining some murky story elements, and closing plot threads. With Justice League in a similar boat, fans are looking forward to seeing what Snyder's true vision for the film was, and whether the director's cut can improve the film in a fashion similar to that of Batman v Superman.
For fans of the MCU there are very few worries or burdens that can bring the fanboy goodtime feels crashing down into the dust and dirt as fast as the thought of the house of ideas failing when it comes to the introduction of the X-Men and Fantastic Four.
The Falcon has been evolving as a prominent hero in the mainstream ever since he made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Portrayed by Anthony Mackie, the character Sam Wilson has become more popular among movie-goers over the years. His journey culminated in the events of Avengers: Endgame, where we saw passing of the Captain America shield from Steve Rogers to Sam Wilson. While he may continue Cap’s legacy, it seems that we have not seen the last of The Falcon mantle, as evidenced by the mere title of the upcoming Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Heroism comes in many forms. When one thinks of a hero, they may think of someone with superpowers or high-tech equipment. Perhaps figures who are able to fly, whether it be via a suit or abilities gained via some extraordinary incident. We may have a tendency to imagine an adult whenever we think of a hero. However, we must not forget that children are capable of being heroes as well.
The mayor's office that same day. The walls are lined with many achievements from both Weldon City and the Mayor himself. A paper showing the Mayor shaking hands with an older gentleman as they are smiling and holding a check between the two of them is framed up on the wall. The headline reads “Dr. Jericho pledges to help Mayor Charlie clean up local parks.”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
Mankind has a track record of horrible abuse. We abuse women, animals, the environment, and even our fellow man. Not to make these things sound inconsequential, but humanity itself has a pension for abusing far more. We abuse the English language.
“YAHHHH!” A blast of energy exploded in the space above the Earth as a man tumbled through a portal. His white and purple robes stained in blood and tattered by constant battle.
