Enough time has passed, perhaps, for the hype of “Avengers: Endgame” to subside. The MCU film has broken box office records and is gunning to become all-time highest-grosser by beating James Cameron’s “Avatar.” And it had all the superhero-vs.-super-villain action sequences audiences worldwide could ever want or need for years. But blockbuster as “Endgame” may … Continue reading “Avengers: Endgame” Co-Writer Explains Drastically Small Screen-time of Brie Larson/Captain Marvel

Analyzing the First Trailer for Disney’s “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil”

And there’s still “Spider-Man: Far from Home” serving as an epilogue. But that’s not stopping Marvel Studios from further adapting other comic stories. We’ve once offered a potential … Continue reading Marvel Studios to Reveal Definitive List of Post-Phase 3 MCU Films this Summer – Bob Iger

After “Rise of Skywalker,” Next “Star Wars” Movie Won’t Be Until 2022 at Least

December’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” was touted as the end of the stories involving this family of Force-users. We wondered what would come after that. Disney-Lucasfilm was insistent on continuing the sci-fi film franchise despite subpar reception of the two non-Skywalker spinoffs.
