Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 Premiere Recap (Full Spoilers Ahead)
The best way I can describe the Season 3 premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is that it satisfied my comic book TV craving that had been building up during the off-season and whet my appetite for the possibilities to come.
The premiere did a good job of finding the balance between setting up a number of story arcs and picking up on a couple of big cliffhangers from last season’s brilliant finale.
Between the rise of the Inhumans, the Kree monolith, Simmon’s fate, and introducing new characters & new threats, the premiere covered a lot of ground. Let’s discuss what happened!
iZombie Season 1 Got Spunk and Brains … lots of brains.
Liv Moore (Rose McIver) has taken on many different personas since the night she nearly died.
She’s an expert sniper perched atop a high-rise building. She’s a snarky radio talk show host giving unsolicited relationship advice to her friends.
She’s a young pregnant lady with strong motherly instincts, except she doesn’t have a baby belly.
The only person she can never become is her old self; a promising medical doctor engaged to a picture perfect fiancé.
There’s an explanation to all of this which is going to sound far out there but why not have fun and go with it?
After getting scratched by a zombie, Liv must feed on human brains or she’ll turn into a mindless, undead creature. It’s a good thing she works in a morgue which is an all-you-can-eat buffet of gray matter.
The catch is that Liv temporarily retains the character traits, skills and memory flashes from the brains she eats. Using these visions and new abilities, she helps the Seattle police department solve murders each week.
Liv is the central character in iZombie, which after starting off as a serviceable television show has become not only thoroughly enjoyable but one I excitedly look forward to.
Which is Marvel Studio’s best solo origin movie? That’s a question worth discussing after Ant-Man became a refreshing summer blockbuster.
There’s certainly fan support for Captain America: The First Avenger, The Incredible Hulk and Thor. But to prevent an all out civil war, this post will focus on what many regard are the two top contenders for best solo debut movie.
Time to pick a side! It’s a battle of the movies between Iron Man (2008) versus Ant-Man (2015). After going head to head in several categories such as Story, Heroes and Villains we’ll turn the floor over to the people’s decision (that’s you!) for your all important vote.
The future of the Fantastic Four franchise is not bright. 20th Century Fox spent 120 million dollars to produce a reboot of Marvel’s longest running superhero team. Early estimates put the opening weekend box office at well below $40 million.
Director Josh Trank has spoken out against the studio meddling with his vision of Fantastic Four. As reported at comicbookmovies.com, Fox cut out 3 action set pieces days before filming, took over the third act from Trank and removed the director from the editing room.
Currently, Fantastic Four (2015) is scoring 9% on Rotten Tomato’s critical consensus, the audience score is at 28%. I’ll reserve judgement on the movie until I’ve seen it myself.
Here are five options on how the studio can handle the Fantastic Four property. We’ll discuss the pros & cons and the probability of each option.
