Marvel Breaks the Mold with Black Panther

Black Panther is the 18th film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it is, without question, the best movie they’ve made.

That’s right—it doesn’t have 20 superheroes or threaten the end of the world, but it’s a cerebral and complex film that offers a breath of fresh air for the MCU.

Director Ryan Coogler, who made Fruitvale Station and Creed, has created the most unique movie within the Marvel canon. He, along with the cast and crew ofBlack Panther, truly elevated the superhero genre.

Black Panther follows T’Challa, played Chadwick Boseman, who after the death of his father (which takes place in Captain America: Civil War) must take his place as the new king of Wakanda. But, when a family secret emerges, the throne and Wakanda are put in jeopardy.

Logan Leaves a Mark on Wolverine’s Legacy

According to actor Hugh Jackman, Logan, will be his tenth and final appearance as the beloved X-Men character, Wolverine.

While I don’t believe that Jackman is completely finished playing the Marvel mutant, the actor is stepping away from the character for some time. Regardless if he reprises the role or not, this film is a near-perfect send-off for the actor and his character.

Logan follows a beaten-down Wolverine, in a near future where mutants are nearly extinct, who is hiding on the Mexican border caring for an ill Professor X (Patrick Stewart). However, his plans quickly change when a young mutant, named Laura (Dafne Keen), shows up and needs their help.

Fantastic Four Falls Flat

Fantastic Four is a reboot of a failed franchise that started in 2005. That movie suffered from a boring storyline and not-so-great acting. The 2015 reboot isn’t much of an improvement. I had hopes for this movie, not only because of the cast but because of the direction I believed it was taking. Boy, oh boy, was I wrong. This movie offers nothing memorable and it just boring.

Fantastic Four follows four young outsiders that teleport to an alternate and dangerous dimension that alters their physical form in marvelous ways. There is Reed Richards (Miles Teller), who has the ability to stretch his body to shocking lengths and shapes. There is Sue Storm (Kate Mara) who can turn invisible and create and harness force fields. Her brother Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) can ignite himself into flames and fly. Then, there is Reed’s best friend Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) has rock-like flesh and has incredible strength.

Ant-Man Movie Review & Film Summary

Ant-Man is a movie that on paper might not seem to have grand appeal. A man who can shrink and communicate with ants. That’s why Ant-Man isn’t a common household name like Iron Man or Captain America. Now, to all my comic book fanatics don’t freak out I’m sure you’ve always known of the character. But someone who isn’t an avid comic book reader, probably doesn’t know much about him. With Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel has shown the world they don’t need the most popular property to make a successful movie.

This film is no different. The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), hits another one out of the park with its latest installment. It is fresh and funny. It’s off-beat, and like Guardians, it will be a big hit with Marvel fans even though it isn’t focus on their most popular character. It is one of the better Marvel movies, now that I think of it. I even enjoyed this movie more than Avengers: Age of Ultron which appeared in theaters earlier this year.
