Berlinale 2017: Mangold's 'Logan' is an Excellent Wolverine Western

Logan Review

Let's make this clear right at the start - this is not another Marvel Studios movie. Logan is a stand-alone, outstanding, one-of-a-kind X-Men movie made for adults. It's violent as all hell, emotional and captivating, gritty and grounded, and exciting to experience. Director James Mangold really hit a home run with this one, bucking the trend and going with his gut to deliver a superb "Wolverine Western". I had to see Logan twice at the Berlin Film Festival before writing this review, to confirm how awesome it is. I haven't enjoyed watching an X-Men movie this much in such a long time, and I'd say this is easily one of the best X-Men movies. It's not really an X-Men movie, but it actually is - there's so much mutant mythology hidden within.

First Fun Trailer for Part 2 of Thor & Darryl's 'Team Thor' Video Diary

Team Thor

"I can't, uh, pay rent with these things…" Marvel Studios has unveiled a teaser trailer for Part 2 of "Team Thor", the video dairies of roommates Thor & Darryl. The very first fan-favorite Thor & Darryl video premiered at Comic-Con last year in Hall H, and received some of the most buzz I've ever heard coming out of the convention. It eventually ended up online a few months later, and it's hilarious. The video diaries are made in the style of "The Office", involving Thor and his friend Darryl, who has a tough job of dealing with the "God of Thunder" as his roomie. I like the footage in this new teaser, it seems like Marvel is happily continuing this series and there may be even more footage beyond just Part 1 & 2. Only time will tell. Enjoy.

First Featurette for 'Avengers: Infinity War' Introduces the Next Chapter

Avengers: Infinity War Featurette

"I feel like I'm on top of the world, because this is just mind-blowing." Marvel has released a new behind-the-scenes production featurette for Avengers: Infinity War, the next big superhero crossover movie hitting theaters in the summer of 2018. The video is more of an announcement of the start of production - filming began on January 23rd, 2017, under the working title Mary Lou, at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Georgia. Filming is expected to last until October/November 2017 - which is an extremely long shoot, but they're shooting the next two back-to-back. The Russo Brothers are directing, and instead of being split into two parts, it will be one big movie. This video features Kevin Feige, with appearances by Chris Pratt (Star Lord), Tom Holland (Spider-Man) and Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man) as well as a few others. Fire it up.

Marvel has launched an extended, 60-second Super Bowl TV spot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn's follow-up to the hugely successful Marvel sci-fi superhero movie from 2014. There's some more great footage in this to top off what we've seen in the first trailer, which was already quite awesome.

First Official Trailers for 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' with Tom Holland

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer

"Stay close to the ground. And stay out of trouble." Sony has revealed the first official trailer for Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by Jon Watts, produced by Marvel Studios. Tom Holland stars as (the new) Peter Parker, who was first introduced in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War this summer with a small role near the end of the movie. The full cast includes Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Michael Keaton as the villain The Vulture, plus Donald Glover, Robert Downey Jr., Martin Starr, Logan Marshall-Green, Angourie Rice, Hannibal Buress, and Zendaya. This does look much better than the last few Spidey movies, but I'm remaining cautiously optimistic for now. Enjoy!

Review: 'Doctor Strange' is a Perfectly Weird Entry in Marvel's Universe

Doctor Strange

We were bound to hit a lull in the excitement that comes from Marvel movies, especially the origin story part of the deal. That natural – and vital – aspect to the expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been played out up, down, and all over the place to the point we find ourselves craving something, anything outside the norm. Thank God for Doctor Strange, that atypical, origin story for which we've been waiting. Sure, it delivers on the excitement and humorous fun we've all come to expect, but under the direction of Scott Derrickson, the Marvel superhero who deals in mysticism and the strange, otherworldly creatures knocking on the door to our plane of existence comes alive with unexpected and surprisingly fresh results.

Review: 'Doctor Strange' is a Distinctive, Spectacular Marvel Origin Film

Marvel's Doctor Strange Review

Can Marvel still make an origin story exciting? Yes. As formulaic as Marvel Studios movies have become, they can still deliver thoroughly exciting big screen entertainment. Doctor Strange is the latest in their line-up that proves with the right formula (in this case, a good thing) of talent behind and on the screen, they can pull off another vibrant introduction. I'm admittedly not that familiar with Doctor Strange - I never read any of his comics and only know what I've learned writing about the movie leading up to the release. After seeing the movie, I'm now a big fan. It's the story of an arrogant, egotistical doctor who has to see the world differently, figuring out how he can still contribute to the greater good even though he can no longer heal people with his hands. Beyond that, the visuals are spectacular and it's worth seeing for them alone.

First Teaser Trailer for James Mangold's 'Logan' Starring Hugh Jackman

James Mangold's Logan Teaser Trailer

"Charles, the world is not the same as it was…" 20th Century Fox has unveiled the first teaser trailer for James Mangold's new Wolverine movie, titled Logan, with Hugh Jackman playing the mutant superhero one last time. This is Jackman's 9th time playing Wolverine, commonly known as Logan though his original name is James Howlett, and this time they're sending him out on the "Old Man Logan" storyline. This is set in 2024 and follows aging Wolverine and Professor X, played again by Patrick Stewart, as they struggle with mental issues. Also starring Boyd Holbrook, Doris Morgado, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Stephen Merchant and Eriq La Salle. I love the look of Jackman as "Old Man Logan", all grizzled with the beard. This looks like it should be an exquisite grand finale for Wolvie, glad to see them going all in with this story.
