Since its release, the film Logan has been widely considered among consideration for the best film in the X-Men franchise. The Mark Millar comic that it was based on, Old Man Logan, deserves similar consideration.
Logan is not like other comic book films. It is brutal and bleak. It has a small cast that it spends more time with. It’s also about one of the most pressing social issues of our day: absent fathers.
Comic books aren’t always shallow. In the case of Hulk, Christians have a great deal to learn about how we approach emotional trauma and Christians that struggle with it.
Remember that time that Otto Octavius was Spider-Man?
The following is the second of a series of posts previewing the plethora of comic book movies to come over the next few years. The first post in the series, previewing Ant-Man, can be found here.
Interest in the second Avengers film began nearly as soon as fans left the theater from the first film. What would the next one be about? What new Avengers would be in it? Who would the villain be? Those questions permeated the web and fans waited in earnest, hoping desperately for new information.
I was recently looking at a list of anticipated films for 2015 in preparation for a list that the writers here at Christian Entertainment Reviews will be posting soon. There were several films I was excited about, such as the new Star Wars film, the second Avengers movie, and even a movie about Phillipe Petit, who spontaneously walked a tightrope between the Twin Towers in the 1970’s. But as I was looking down the list, I had a revelation.
Oh yeah! Ant-Man is coming out this year, too!
The Amazing Spider-Man (2014-) #10
If you browse the superhero genre casually, you might think that anyone with superpowers qualifies as a superhero. For that matter, you may not even need powers; all you need is a suit, a name, and something cool that gives you the ability to fight baddies, and then people adore you, right? Well, it’s not all that simple. Just because you’re the one fighting bad guys, that doesn’t necessarily make you any better than them.
