“Power Rangers” is an American superhero drama in English. It is based on the “Power Rangers” franchise, specifically the first season of the TV show, which was adapted from scenes from a Japanese TV series. “Power Rangers” is directed by Dean Israelite, with a screenplay by John Gatins.
“Logan” is an American superhero drama. It is the third film to feature Hugh Jackman as the title character, Wolverine, and the tenth film in the “X-Men” film franchise. The film follows an aged, sick Wolverine and a senile Professor X in a world without mutants.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is ramping up its production line this year with three films instead of its usual two: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2’, ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ and ‘Thor: Ragnarok’. It’s a signal of intent from Marvel and one of confidence in the hugely successful cinematic universe model which began with ‘Iron Man’ in 2008.
A new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (in theaters May 5) premiered during the Super Bowl, featuring a little bit of everything fans could want — including Baby Groot, shirtless Chris Pratt, and a perfectly-timed Drax joke. The extended Super Bowl spot, above, begins with a mysterious golden-skinned woman (click here if you want to know her identity) asking Star-Lord (Pratt) who in the hell he thinks he is. Thanos’ daughter Nebula (Karen Gillan) seems to have been promoted from villain to teammate and antenna-wearing empath Mantis (Pom Klementieff) is a new addition — at least, for as long as she can avoid fireballs.
By now, the trailers for Logan (in theaters March 3) have made it very clear that this is not a typical superhero movie. Quiet and despairing, light on special effects and heavy on character drama, the third Wolverine solo film looks to be a drastic departure from previous X-Men films, not to mention the Marvel and DC Comics films that dominate the genre. At a December press event last year, I previewed the first 40 minutes of Logan, and I can tell you that superhero films are never going to be the same.
It’s official – Superman is the most powerful superhero… and that’s a fact. According to an impressive seven-year study published by the University of Leicester, the Man of Steel is the world’s most powerful superhero.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is a superhero movie where Superman and Batman have their first encounter, and is the second film set in the DC Extended Universe that began with “Man of Steel.” It sees an epic confrontation between Batman and Superman that has dire consequences when Lex Luthor gets involved. It stars Ben Affleck (Batman/Bruce Wayne), Henry Cavill (Superman/Clark Kent), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), Holly Hunter (Senator Finch), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman/Diana Prince), Tao Okamoto (Mercy Graces), with cameos by Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), and Ezra Miller (Flash).
‘Deadpool’ hits UK cinemas tomorrow (10 February), and most agree it’s one of the funniest superhero movies to date. Ryan Reynolds stars as a motor-mouthed, fourth-wall-breaking mutant capable of quickly-healing all the injuries others inflict because of his big mouth. Marvel Studios’ cinematic universe (MCU) has always had a good sense of humour, but 'Guardians of the Galaxy’ marked its first true comedy - and it being so was absolutely the right call.
In many ways ‘Deadpool’ is the first instance of 20th Century Fox’s 'X-Men’ cinematic universe truly branching out. Everything before it has either been a sequel, a prequel or a spin-off for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. Spin-off movies starring someone who is already essentially the main character of the core films doesn’t really count in our view, so 'Deadpool’ represents a crucial point in the expansion of the mutant superhero series.
Stan Lee, the iconic creator of many Marvel favourites, including Spider-Man, Hulk, and Thor, wants to see the ultimate superhero crossover movie happen. Discussing the prospect of The Avengers, X-Men and Spider-Man all sharing the screen, he beamed, “I would love to see that.” But Lee was also aware that it’d be a near impossible task for such a wish to come true. If anyone is aware of the magnitude and indeed possibility of the crossover, it’s Lee himself: "Little by little, they are appearing and guest-starring in each other’s movies.
If you haven’t caught the new “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailer, go check it out now. You’ll notice a big rocky monster who serves as the physical challenge for Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman to confront.
Rosario Dawson is a Comic Con regular who demands more from the comic book and video game industry. Most recently, she told MTV News that Hollywood shouldn’t just be focused on the gender wage gap. At an AirBnB Havana-themed party in New York City on Tuesday, Dawson told Yahoo Beauty that MTV had not published another wage gap issue she had brought up in her interview: “I also talked about the transgender wage gap, but they cut that out.” She shrugged.
Prepare yourself for arguably the most bonkers fan theory regarding next year’s ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, as internet conspirators dream up a highly unlikely idea over who our main characters actually are. Total Spoilers have a huge essay (it’s thousands of words long) for members based on a bold theory about Ben Affleck’s Batman and Bruce Wayne, Jared Leto’s Joker, a featured baddie, and an appearance from Christian Bale, of all people. Firstly, ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ will supposedly take place after Chris Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.
It’s no secret that Quentin Tarantino has a lot of opinions about cinema. The biggest trend in Hollywood right now is superhero movies, and somewhat surprisingly the ‘Pulp Fiction’ and 'Kill Bill’ director appears to be all for them. “I’ve been reading comic books since I was a kid, and I’ve had my own Marvel Universe obsessions for years,” said Tarantino in an interview with New York Magazine (via Vulture).
